A once-proud technology brand gets acquired by a brand once best known for manufacturing cheap CD-ROM cases:

Link

Belkin produces a variety of consumer computer products, not just cheap cases. They can't do any worse with the Linksys brand than Cisco did. Last week I went through the painful process of attempting to install and configure a Linksys RE1000 extender. Complete crap product that I ended up having to return. I bought the Netgear equivalent and had it installed and working in 15 minutes.
