Hardware fails, and at one time or another, I've had issues with Linksys, D-Link, and Netgear routers. That said, by a very far margin, I've had the fewest issues with Netgear, which are the routers I use at home (all Cisco at work).


I'm in this camp, though no Ciscos at work. (No work!)

Cisco ought to just buy DD-WRT and use it on their routers. They would become #1 in a hurry.

Word on the street is that Cisco simply hasn't invested much in the Linksys products themselves in terms of development. That happens sometimes when one company buys another. They need to do something to improve the Linksys reputation at this point - maybe that would help.

The other word on the street is that Cisco hired Barclay's to shop Linksys around to find a buyer.

+4

Switched from Netgear to an Airport Extreme about a year ago. Has worked flawlessly ever since. I used to get occasional WiFi drops with the Netgear. Added another wired Airport Extreme to extend a good 5G signal to the other end of the house. Very happy so far, set-up was quite easy.

That makes more sense based upon all the other reports then...
