well first since linksys is a part of cisco, i personally do not think the quality (good or bad) of linksys gear is
going to change ... cause if you look at the prices of cisco gear, and if you think that if they started to
incorporate cisco technology into linksys gear then the prices would be silly, and they would not sell as much
as they do now ... and they mainly target the home/home office, so if they jack the price then that would be
bad .. so i personally don't think that linksys is going to become better solely because they are a part of cisco
and personally, i would say yah cisco stuff is probably some of the best that money can buy ... i know alot
of companys are going with arris now because of all the nodes you can attach to them, but i work with
these things daily, and i think the arris sucks ... there is not even close the amount of commands available
on an arris that you can do with a cisco product ... when i am talking with a person that is connected to a
arris i am like UGH, i have basically one command to type to troubleshoot their internet connection, yet
when i am talking witth someone on a cisco node, it makes me happy cause i have alot more options
and troublshooting steps i can take cause of the amount of commands available to you ...
so yah i would say cisco takes the cake ....
but yet again, this is a personally opinion .,..;
oh and yah i think linksys still rocks with or without cisco
