This should be a relatively smooth transition that won’t affect current customers: Belkin says it will honor all valid warranties for current and future Linksys products. After the transaction closes, Belkin will account for approximately 30 percent of the US retail home and small business networking market.
These cheap home routers have become commodities. As far as I know Belkin makes a decent product. Cisco tried to require its home router users to be managed by its cloud platform and after that debacle it seemed all downhill from there for them. If possible I prefer to use a real Linux box running real iptables as a gateway using these wifi home routers as access points.
