Apple Routers While I have owned Linksys routers in the past, I have had the best performance from Apple routers.
Comcast tried and failed to unload their junky gateway but compared to an Apple router, that is like comparing public transportation to a corvette.

Belkin sucks Belkin is crap. I'm going to buy a few routers now while they are still not utter shit.
What About VOIP Stuff? Linksys bought Sipura before Cisco bought Linksys. Linksys phones and ATAs have started looking more and more like Cisco stuff. Any idea where this unit is going/staying?

WRT-54G Probably one of the best Linksys routers was the WRT-54G that became open source. I run Tomato on mine and it is fantastic. I wish they supported 802.11n and/or 802.11ac.
I support the right to keep and arm bears.

Hope I'm still hopeful that they will be operating independently.
perfect one crap company buys out another. Kinda like Windstream buying Paetec

Re: NOOOOOOO belkin sucks ASS! True that.
ASUS / PFSense ASUS makes the best routers right now. However I'm only using them as WAP's after setting up PFSense as my home router. I'll never switch to a traditional home router ever again. PFSense is fantastic.

Re: What About VOIP Stuff? Those guys started Obihai, and you see how good that product is...
The product is great. The web interface is horrible. That's the problem with consumer electronics makers. Either the interface is great and the hardware is crap or the hardware is crap and the interface is pretty.
Blech! Ugh! Belkin is to electronics as Yugo is to transportation. This is sad news.
Still have a WRT-54G v2 in service here, but dumped the stock Linksys firmware years ago. It's currently running toastman Tomato and chugging along like a champ.

Re: ASUS / PFSense I agree with you on this one. Asus do have a few firmware bugs, but all of their products run 3rd party firmware, incase the bugs affect you
Yes, I am not employed and looking for IT work. Have passport, will travel.

Re: Blech! I'm thinking about connecting back up my WRT54G v1.1 just to get some better 2.4 range in and outside my home. My WRT600n just doesn't seem to have the oomph!
I am admittedly a Linksys Router hoarder. Goodwill had a Linksys E2500 and WRT110 for $5 ea. Had to pick them up just to keep in my spare collection. I love a great deal.

Re: What About VOIP Stuff? Did you say that right? I love my Obihai!
Cisco/linksys was akin to sprint/nexhell Totally different product lines and corporate mentality...
As another poster pointed out the x-Sipura VOIP systems, would seem to be a better match at Cisco, but again the culture clash is an issue..
So are they in the consumer side and headed to crapkin?

Absolutely awful This sucks not only for the basic router/wap parts but for their nicer gear too. I bought a Linksys SR2048 (managed 48 port GbE with 4 mini-gbic) 6 years ago and I doubt Belkin could ever turn out such a piece of hardware even today.
All Belkin is good at is producing overpriced cables for sale at Best Buy & OfficeMax -- you know, the $20 USB cables and the gold plated "for better signal transfer" HDMI cables.
