The extremely well established brand of Linksys (since 1988), famous for its various home routers and related networking products, is to be killed off by parent company Cisco.
Cisco originally acquired Linksys during 2003 and opted to retain the brand because its own wasn't well enough recognised among the wider consumer market. Things have now changed and Cisco intends to launch future consumer products under a revamp of its own name.
No doubt a considerable number of broadband users reading this news today may well be doing so through one of Linksys's products. Unfortunately Linksys has not had an unblemished rein, with some of its routers being dogged by technical issues. RIP.
