cisco Cisco to sell off Linksys division

My first wireless router was the Linksys WRT54GS and it worked properly for as long as I used it. It served me well for about 3 years (2005-2008) but it didn't break. I just needed more wireless performance so I bought a D-Link DGL-4500 in 2008.

I haven't considered recommending a Linksys wireless router for years which is why this doesn't surprise me. It seems like they lost their competitive edge. Other companies like D-Link, Netgear, Belkin, and ASUS seem to be doing better.

I had no issues with the EA4500 router with a hell of a load of devices connected to it, not rebooted it once.

Well I don't know, Netgear has made 3 of the best routers I've ever had, 2 of which are still in use...the 3rd I killed with ignorance, and Belkin's not bad once you stop using their firmware. The one DLINK router we've had just up and stopped working for seemingly no reason.

From my exp. it just seems to be luck of the draw. I've heard people who swore by Belkin and never had any problems, then others (like me) who say it sucks. Same goes for any of them.

The problem is with the Belkin router is that you have to get a router where as I prefer to get an ADSL Modem Router which is unsupported by the alternative firmwares. So far with the dlink DSL-2870B things have been going extraordinarily well.

I'm not surprised. Linksys has to be one of the worst routers ever.

Still using my E4200 V1 and loving it since January 2011. If it wasn't for Hurricane Sandy it would be an uptime of 2yrs now. :)
