My old Linksys gear was pretty reliable ... until a series of power company surges fried it all. Linksys became a mess when Cisco took over, so Belkin could hardly do worse. Prices should go up by a factor of ten overnight if they follow the standard Belkin pricing, so nobody will buy the stuff anyway. I'm mostly using dlink stuff at the moment, which has been reasonable. The DIR655 is a pretty good wireless router. Options for consumer-grade network equipment have been pretty weak lately.
