"The router would grab a random HTTP connection
every eight hours and redirect it to Belkin's (push)
advertised web page."
"In response criticism, a Belkin product manager came
forward this week to confirm the behaviour was
designed into the products..."
Do they not realize that this has a strong possibility
of breaking any web application every eight hours?
stylesheet, internal frame page, or XML data gets
replaced by a Belkin advertisement? The site breaks
and they get a support telephone call.
Major class action lawsuit material, not just by every
Belkin user but by every web publisher on the Internet.
