Also, D-Link and 3com are decent too.
I think linksys is just cheap, period. I have had many IRQ issues with them. My one windows 2000 machine has had numerous forced shutdowns due to "IRQL not less or equal" errors generated by the linksys card. I know it was my linksys card because I analyzed the mini dumps. I would recommend NetGear, as they are reportedly more IRQ friendly. Also with the linksys NIC I have if the system utilizes over 60 connections over my network the NIC card malfunctions. This is very noticeable while using programs such as Bittorrent.
