This week on OCC Poll we are wondering what companies you would get your networking gear from? Is is Linksys or Belkin, or Cisco?

 

This poll covers anything from NICs to Routers, so it is a multiple choice poll.

 

Let us know on this weeks OCC Poll

I've had Belkin hubs and hated them, hard to set up properly. Currently using a Linksys WRT54GS WiFi router and it's been chugging away for years with no issues.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Before I retired, back when I was setting up networks, I used 3Com before it went to crap - then Linksys. Cisco never worked very well, constantly failing, and, most other brands were just not reliable. Because I am on DSL I am now using 2_Wire - been running 3 years - never fails.
