I recently purchased a Sony Bravia HDTV and a Panasonic Blu-Ray player. Both came with Ethernet ports but not wireless ones. I have a wireless-N network, so I found that I needed a wireless Ethernet bridge for these two new devices. They sell two bridges at Best Buy (D-link, Linksys), but they get poor reviews, cost $100, and only have a single Ethernet port each (requiring that I buy two bridges or one bridge and a hub). Many of the bridges on Amazon also have sketchy reviews. However, I saw some Buffalo devices that looked potentially interesting, with multiple ports and positive reviews on some models. So, I gave this one a shot since it comes directly from Amazon (instead of a 3rd party seller) and looks similar to other Buffalo devices that are reviewed positively. These reviews of other models warned of possible difficulties (e.g., poor documentation, issues with Windows Vista, issues connecting to non-Buffalo wireless routers that are using encryption) but claimed these difficulties could be surmounted.

I got the bridge this evening and it was simple and easy to install on my network. I simply connected it directly to my PC via its Ethernet port, ran the setup disk, fed the setup program the information about my network and its encryption, and that's it. I put the bridge in my den, connected it to my TV, and I was immediately able to watch Internet-only HDTV content on my Sony Bravia (e.g., Amazon video).

The whole thing took about 15 minutes from opening the box, configuring it via my PC, and popping it on my TV. Hard to see how this could be better, so I'm giving this 5 stars for now to alert folks to the utility of this product, but if I run into problems later I'll update this review.

This unit works well for streaming Netflix Instant on videos to my Sony BDP-N460 Blu-ray Disc Player for playback on my Sony Bravia8 XBR TV.

It is the only bridge that I found that has four plugs in the back allowing both the TV, DVD to plug in (with space to plug in an Apple TV or Apple MiniMac in the future).

There is no documentation about how to use this unit with Macs.

Here is a guide to my setup:

To setup with Mac Tiger Os 10.4.11 or Leopard 10.5.x and a first generation Time Capsule unit broadcasting a 802.11n signal.

Note that none of the supplied software will work on a Mac so web based setup is necessary for Macs. However, you can access the manual on the CD. Also the AOSS setup method will not work with Mac Airport Base stations. The Mac documentation is essentially non-existent.

A major problem for WEP password users:

The WEP password option used with Apple Time Capsule Airport stations and newer Airport units is a special form called WEP (Transitional Security Network) when you select the 802.11n option for network setup in the Airport Utility program. What is this? Here is the Apple description:

A Transitional Security Network (TSN) is a network that uses the Transitional Security Network Protocol that allows clients to authenticate with networks in the most secure way possible, based on the capabilities of their hardware and software. Computers capable of connecting using the WPA standard will be able to authenticate using a WPA password. Computers that do not meet the requirements to authenticate using WPA will use WEP instead.
The same password is used on all clients of the Transitional Security Network, regardless of the specific authentication method they use.

Like many other customers on here, I did some research and read some reviews and then... took a chance, and it paid! This little box does exactly as it should and creates a wireless access bridge for my home entertainment center in the living room (including an Xbox 360, a Sony Bravia tv, and a Bravia Blu-Ray player, currently) and the router two [VAST] rooms away. I rarely, if ever notice any spats of slowdown or signal degredation while streaming video online off the tv or playing around on Xbox Live. Aside from the hiccup about the installation & configuration program not readily being compatible with Vista 64--which I just decided to skirt-around and instead install on my netbook, but I'm sure it's still doable with Vista after checking some boxes and etc that I couldn't be bothered with at the time--this sleek little box really does the trick.

UPDATE:
Almost a year-to-the-date that I initially posted my review, I found in a support forum that you can "dual-band it" with this little box (2.4G & 5G) by flipping a very tiny switch on the side, located near the pushpin Reset button, from the "1x" to "2x" position. For whatever reason, this tidbit of information was not included in any of the documentation so only if you're very closely inspecting the converter would you notice.

Also of note, some users (like myself) have noticed that the settings program does not have a specific 802.11n setting option--but after swapping the switch to "2x" this seems to work the same as if N with a reading of 300Mbps, with a wireless-N router, obviously.

I don't claim to know an awful lot about router settings and home networks but I do know what shows results and much of this can be backed up by other users as well. As always though, do your research, try things out, and see what works best.
