Who Owns Linksys Now?
Cisco announced in 2013 that it would be acquiring Linksys for $500 million. This made Linksys a subsidiary of Cisco. Prior to the acquisition, Linksys was owned by Belkin.
What Happened to Linksys?
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from Linksys. The last time the popular router company made headlines was back in 2013 when it was acquired by Belkin for $866 million. Since then, it’s been pretty quiet on the Linksys front. So, what happened to Linksys?
Well, for starters, the company was absorbed by Belkin. This means that Belkin is now in charge of manufacturing, marketing, and selling all Linksys products. So, if you’re wondering why you haven’t seen any new Linksys products lately, it’s because Belkin has been keeping them under wraps.
However, that’s all about to change. Belkin has recently announced that it is re-launching the Linksys brand and that we can expect to see some new products from the company later this year.
So, what does this mean for Linksys fans? It means that we can expect to see some new and exciting products from the company in the near future. Linksys is back and it’s ready to take on the router market once again.
What Does This Mean for Linksys Customers?
As of March 13, 2019, Belkin International, Inc. is the new owner of the Linksys brand and business. This includes all Linksys-branded networking products, support, and customer service.
Where Can I Find Linksys Support?
If you’re looking for support for your Linksys product, there are a few places you can go. First, you can try the Linksys website, where you can find FAQs, manuals, and software updates. If you can’t find what you’re looking for there, you can try contacting Linksys support directly. Finally, if you’re still having trouble, you can check out some of the online forums dedicated to Linksys products.
What Other Options Do I Have?
If you’re not interested in Cisco’s new Linksys product line, there are plenty of other great networking companies out there to choose from. Netgear, TP-Link, and Asus all make excellent routers that will give you the speed and coverage you need, without breaking the bank.
