Update 08/20/2012: Well, a year is creeping up on me since I have purchased and currently using two of these Linksys WES610N's. Still going strong and working wonderfully. I changed the NetGear router PWD a few times and reconnected the Linksys using the WPS button. I plug and unplug one of them almost daily for various reasons and it is still working just fine. As a bridge they are greate and I still say these are the best units available for that function.
*********************************************

Like many, I have equipment nowhere near a cable. Everything is wireless. Finding a bridge or relay has been fairly challenging over the years. They either did too much or not enough and for the most part, there are always very little in the way of choices.

Enter this Linksys. I was using the Netgear bridge for the past few months. It was only capable of 2.6g and though it appeared to work somewhat ok, it keep needing restarted and ran rather slow. My primary device using it was a Roku. Many times the show I was streaming and many times it was not. I have a 70mb Internet connection, so I ruled out that. I purchased 2 of these WES610N devices. One for the LR and one for the Bedroom which is at the complete opposite end of building relative to my wireless router. I also have a Roku in the BR.

From the moment I installed them, the quality of the stream has been vastly improved and has remained so for a few weeks. I have yet to recycle the power on either one. Since this Linksys also operate at the 5g range, the amount of interference to other wireless devices has fallen tremendously.

For the record, I did not go into and view the management screens for these. I pushed the button to auto config.

I have converted one of my bedrooms into a home-office, the only problem is that I had no way to get wired internet access to the room. Up until now I had been relying upon a USB wireless network adapter, but wanted to get my son's computer and my laser printer networked, so I went looking for a wireless bridge that would connect all of my networked devices in the office to my network. Upon the recommendation of a friend, I decided upon the Linksys (Cisco) WES610N. I was not disappointed. I had the device online and functional less then five minuted after unpacking it from Amazon's shipping box. Configuration of the unit was painless by accessing the administration web interface via the default IP address. My internet speed is noticeably faster and all of my office devices are happily online. Very happy and impressed with both the ease of installation as well as the performance of this little unit. Well worth paying a little extra for this model than others on the market!

First and foremost, this bridge works fine. I have this in my entertainment center providing a wireless bridge for my bluray player, xbox, and vonage. I've noticed no degredation in my speeds since reluctantly cutting the gigabit switch and cable I had running to my router (my wife didn't like a big white cable in the middle of the living room despite my qualms about speed).

My biggest gripe with this device is they advertise "High speed connection (up to 300 Mbps) for fast transfer rates". However, you will never ever see anything close to these speeds on your downstream device. The fastest you will ever see is 100 Mbps. And why is that? No, it has nothing to do with theoretical vs. actual wireless N speeds. Nope, nothing to do with contention on the 2.5GHz band. The reason, gentle reader, is because Cisco put a 10/100 switch in the back of this box. Thats right! Despite a blazing fast, fancy schmancy wireless N connection, a downstream device is hamstrung by the slow wired port in this bridge. WTF cisco? Why not put a Gig-E switch in the back?! This seems like an advertising slap in the face, and if the device hadn't been free (gift certificates) I would have bought something like this:

TRENDnet 450Mbps Dual Band Wireless N HD Media Bridge TEW-680MB

Yes, I understand if I am streaming everything over the internet, I'm never going to see anywhere near 100Mbps let alone 300Mbps to see the bottleneck rear its ugly head. But its the principle of thing. I think I'm gonna put my cable back when my wife goes to bed.

UPDATE 1.3.

Love the simple setup and IT WORKS!!! Have been suffering trying over and over to get the netgear WN2000RPT to work with no luck. After 6 months and warrenty still on it I tossed that one in the garbage. Not worth my time. Got the Linksys and love it. Never looses connection and keeps working while streaming video. Recomend this product to anyone looking for a bridge, DO NOT GET A Netgear you will regret it!

The Linksys WES610N works just as expected. I use a Cisco / Linksys E4200 router and setup was a breeze. The Wi-Fi Protected Setup feature made it very easy and quick to set up. I use Vonage as my phone service, and have perfect clarity and consistent connection. If you're looking into connecting multiple ethernet devices to your wireless network, this is the one to get!
