    Although Cisco President and CEO John Chambers claimed that the company was planning to kill off the Linksys brand last week, it seems that there’s a bit of internal confusion within the company as to what will be happening with the name. The Linksys division of the company, which ultimately takes its orders from Chambers, yesterday released the following statement:
    So it would appear that Cisco thinks it’s getting rid of the Linksys name, whilst the Linksys division thinks that it is here to stay - at least until the company is confident the Cisco name can sell as well a the Linksys brand.

    What a complete cock-up at corporate HQ.

    Cisco is a much stronger brand. They SHOULD kill of linksys. The question is, if there is a BIG STOCKPILE of linksys stuff, should they WAIT before announcing the kill. Probably.

    They should let Linksys die for an overall brand image improvement. This will get the Cisco name in every household. Gotta have that Branding
