It won't, even with the Cisco name they'll be pitched/priced to target
the low budget space. They may be able to better compete with the HP's
and Dell's(forgot they had switches..) of the world though with the
better brand recognition of Cisco vs Linksys. Probably get a 25%
increase in price for the same product with the new branding too.
