http://www.uberpulse.com/us/2007/07/cisco_to_kill_linksys_brand_to_move_agressively_into_consumer_markets_video.php In a roundtable with the European press, John Chambers confirmed the "end of life" of the Linksys brand, replaced by Cisco. This decision follows Cisco's move last April to make it easier for Linksys resellers to add Cisco products to their offerings and vice versa. Also, just a few weeks ago, Cisco created a new division solely focused on the SMB market and headed by Rick Moran, formerly marketing chief of several Cisco communications applications like the unified communications portfolio, Cisco IPICS, Cisco Small Business Systems (Linksys One), TelePresence, Business Video and Physical security. "It will all come overtime into a Cisco brand. The reason we kept Linksys' brand because it was better known in the US than even Cisco was for the consumer. As you go globally there's very little advantage in that", said Cisco's CEO. http://www.uberpulse.com/us/2007/07/cisco_to_kill_linksys_brand_to_move_agressively_into_consumer_markets_video.php

I'm an it professional, but that gives me no advantage if the things don't work as you say... I have setup over 50 linksys devices in homes. This doesn't include other cisco products. I have yet to have ANY problem with linksys. It just works, every time. I Have had problems with other brands, inluding d-link (especially).

just to let you all know...Cisco has made a pretty big impact with Linksys in helping create new technologies. Cisco is not a bad thing for the company

Sheesh. Notice he says "eventually". They're not going to kill the Linksys brand tomorrow, or even in the next couple of years.
