They made really bad bets on consumer products. For Linksys they bought it to get into the entry level / small business market as well. Another bad bet. The competition has been stepping it up to the point where these products overlap with Cisco's existing platforms. Spending the money to develop a separate hardware/software platform doesn't make a lot of sense. They can just downsize/license option their existing platforms into that space and save themselves a ton of money.
