This is truly absurd. How dare Linksys/Cisco think they have the right
to use these services?

What amazes me most is that no one at Linksys apparently ever caught
this. Wolfgang spent two hours with a quiet device and monitored the
traffic to find this problem. You'd think someone at Linksys would
have thought to try the same thing. Didn't it ever occur to them to
examine what packets their Internet device sends out?
