    That would be interesting. I wonder if Belkin would just absorb Linksys and the Linksys name would disappear... And yes, I did read the article where it says the Linksys name will continue, but I always take that with a grain of salt.

    Yeah, kind of like Logitech says they will continue to support Harmony while they have it on the market...

    Consumer electronics never quite fit the Cisco model.
    This is probably a good thing for the Linksys brand (as I glance at my home wireless router with the Cisco branding on it)...

    I have a box in the basement filled with old routers.
    Think the Smithsonian wants them?

    Cisco can't keep up with the laundry list of security issues with their $2,500 routers, how could they justify resources for a $80 router?

    This should be a good fit as long as they get the whole Linksys line and not just the cheap stuff.

    Is Logitech backing away from the Harmony line?

    Thanks for the update.

    It's an interesting change for Cisco, and likely a good move for Linksys users.

    I hope so. Cisco wasn't good for the brand.
