They make great routers they should not sell .
That's probably why Linksys is being sold, because they made great routers without built in obsolescence and are compatible with other firmware, therefore people and companies don't have to buy new ones every few months as most short sighted quarterly based American companies would have people and companies do.
From a time when "Made in the USA" meant something.
I'm on a Linksys router right now, if the things work for nearly ten+ years and this one does and has WPA2 fully set, then it doesn't make sales for the owning company, therefore it's not profitable for Cisco.
The routers that I have now are pre Cisco.
