Random net storms. Super-slow download speeds, worse than a basic 54k phone modem. Pings of 200 to 1,000. Disconnects, where it just decides it’s not going to talk to the DSL modem at all, requiring multiple restarts, resets, and reentry of all the contact data. All-night bittorrent sessions, hours to download game patches. And a history like this and this.
Goodbye, Linksys, you’ve overstayed your welcome. Hello D-Link. You roxxor.
