Hasn't been the case for quite a few companies. Dell/Alienware Acer/Gateway Linksys/Cisco AMD/ATI, you get it. When Cisco bought Linksys they only plastered their name all over everything hoping brand recognition on either side would up sales. Last I heard of Cisco/Linksys before the rumors of the Belkin buyout was that Cisco would be integrating their own firmware for a cloud based web-gui which can be found on the E6500 I believe. Other than that, Linksys was still Linksys.
I believe Belkin will keep Linksys as Linksys as well, due to their reputation and brand recognition.

I tried doing the same and wound up getting the wrong revision. It took too long for me to realize this and I couldn't return it. The default firmware on the e4200 is rather good though. Very stable, very quick.

Last Netgear router I ever had was a WNR3500. Total hunk of junk.
