Linksys logoLinksys is 25 years old today.

25 years ago on April 28, 1988, Janie and Victor Tsao founded Linksys and launched their first product, the PC to Printer Connector. As Indy once said, "it's not the years, it's the mileage" and Linksys certainly is a bit worse for the wear after two aquisitions.

But it was the venerable BEFSR41 EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 4-port switch for $99 that set the company on the path to becoming the force it remains today in consumer networking.

To celebrate, Linksys debuted a the new logo above and sent along a little reminder of some of the dozens of products that have borne the Linksys logo in the past two and a half decades.

Take a little trip down memory lane and check the timeline below to see how many Linksys routers you can remember.
