Silly me, I figured the fire sale on Linksys
DMA2100 and DMA2200 Extenders over the past two months might indicate them
getting ready to drop a new hardware revision on us, but sadly that doesn’t
appear to be the case. Consumer Electronics
Daily is reporting that Cisco (eg. Linksys) “has no immediate plans” to replace
the two Extender SKUs. Cisco did note
that a firmware update would likely be the next step. When that update drops or what is included
remains to be seen.
The DMA2100 has sold for a low of $59 at
Dell.com a few week ago. The average
price now is about $125, which is nothing to turn up your nose at (unless they
drop to $59 again). Isn’t it amazing how
the drop to a reasonable price seems to get more people on board with Extenders (hint,
hint)? How many of you purcahsed an
Extender because of the recent sales?
What issues does Linksys need to focus
on for their (hopefully) upcoming firmware update?
