But we're back to business vs. home use. Cisco has been wanting to get
into the home market for a long time so purchasing Linksys seems like a
logical step. Comparing the quality of inksys hardware to something
that Cisco, Foundry, Extreme, etc might produce gives me a good
chuckle, though. Last time I checked there was nothing from Linksys on
the government TIC approved list. And there's a reason for that
In the end for home use Linksys is probably fine. $79.00 for a card
and an AP is hard to beat. On a network that I had to support I
wouldn't have a Linksys anything unless I wanted to visit the client on
a higher than regular basis for some reason.
