Hi Rich,

I think it would be useful for you to forward this message to
both D-Link and Linksys upper management (CEO preferably) with a
CC to the Marketing Division.  Make sure they know this was a
very public discussion.

Thanks for the very useful info.

73, Eric  N7CL

PS to reflectorees -  The DSL modem manufacturers could also
benefit from feedback.  It is especially effective when a useable
alternative is identified.
