Linksys routers no longer viable products..

Seams to me.. there is a major problem with this kind of software change.
I.E. You need Internet connectivity to change the settings.. Duhhh..

Can we say Catch-22? Horse before the cart? Chicken before the egg?

Are the people working for Cisco that dumb??

The time a person really needs access to the configurations settings is precisely when you DON'T have a functional Internet connection. So much for the cloud login sequence.

Not true; if no wan is available, then the browser connects directly to the router as it has always done.

Yes, it does, but then let's not ruin the hysteria by stating facts...

True, those of us who actually own the device, enjoy it, know how to use it, should be left out of the discussion!

I have a friend of a friend who works at Cisco in engineering, and according to friend-of-friend, Cisco engineering worked long and hard to *try* and talk management out of going forward with this fiasco.. But of course, management ALWAYS wins these arguments.. At least there seems to be *some* intelligent life still at Cisco, but I wonder for HOW long?
