said by tmc8080:Perhaps focus should be on getting better, low cost 1 Gbps gear in the consumer market first along with the connectivity for it. The market for residential 10 GbE is minuscule at best given most consumers' configurations in their homes.
There isn't really any affordable 10gigE gear on the market for the residential market.
said by tmc8080:Yes, the product line is minimally profitable. That's why I still scratch my head as to why Cisco bought a consumer line of low margin hardware in the first place. Horrible execution of capital, IMO.
margins will be as weak as the innovation. That's why cisco wants to get rid of linksys.
