Why did Cisco just forbid me from looking at whatever the heck I want on my home network?
kreiley 1 year ago
The latest Cisco firmware update for my Linksys Router pushes me to use Cisco Connect Cloud to access admin functions. Ummm, I didn't have any problem using admin functions before, but ok....I guess. However, the TOS agreement then makes me agree not to use my router for "obscene, pornographic or offensive purposes." What!?!? I'll look at obscene offensive pornographic material if I want to in the privacy of my home! In all seriousness, now that I'm out of college and a dad, that isn't on the top of my to do list, but I don't think that is anyone's business but mine, and certainly not Cisco's. Why in the world would my router just forbid me from looking at whatever legal thing I want to, and then threaten to "discontinu[e] [my] service without prior notice.....and without refund or compensation" if I look at something they don't approve of?
