For what it's worth, I have had extremely poor experiences 
with LinkSys products. Two different NICs, a hub, and a 
router, all went bad on me after only a couple of months, 
which is totally unacceptable.

I now buy, use, and recommend only 3Com NICs as I have 
-never- had a problem with one or had one quit working. I 
have also had very good experiences with NetGear products, 
including my router which just keeps chugging even after 
some accidental abuse that should have sent it to router 
heaven. Abuse like dropping it down a flight of hardwood 
stairs, and later spilling about a half a cup of coffe on 
it (it was unplugged at the time, but still... I wiped off 
what I could, gave it overnight to dry out, plugged it in 
and off it went).

Good luck,
