umm why? for around $50 I get a up link port, a 4 port switch, a dead stupid
web interface and it works. A sokris is what, ~ $200+ and I do not
get the switch.
And it does not work out of the box.
I agree that you can do more with the sokris box, dmz for example, but
the home user market does not need or want a dmz or know what it is.
Sokris is on my toy list and I can use it as a firewall, but I would
be doing it in large part for the fun of setting it up.

why spend the extra money and wait for the product to be delivered when I can
just save $150 (200-500 ) and be done with it? Personaly I have had good luck
with netgear not linksys, but all the arguments apply.
