For reference here is the process I used to get it set up:
1. Connected the WET610N to a port on my router (Linksys E1200)
2. Looked in my router settings for the IP address that the adapter was assigned.
3. Entered the IP address in the web browser on my desktop.
4. Updated the firmware on the WET610N.
5. Changed the ip address from DHCP to static and entered the web interface from the new ip address
6. Changed the admin password.
7. Changed wireless setting from WPS to manual and entered the SSID, encryption type, and password for my wireless connection.
8. Plugged the adapter into the miniswitch in my entertainment center.
At this point the adapter immediately started working and the 5 devices connected to the switch were able to access my network.
+ Straightforward setup
+ Defaults to DHCP instead of making me change my ip address to be able to set it up.
+ Does what it claims to do
+ Somewhat attractive design
+ Includes network cable
- Slow web interface. Changes take longer than they should to apply.
- No alternate instructions for setting up using web interface
I packet sniffed the traffic going between the two TiVos and saw a lot of TCP transmission errors, always on packets of size 63 or less.
After doing a Google search on WET610N and "TCP Checksum errors" I came across a number of pages. The most informational was this one which states that the WET610N is rewriting the TCP checksum and incorrectly including padding bytes. This is what is causing the errors:
As such I can't recommend the WRT610N. It will work in most instances since packet sizes of less than 64 bytes are rare, but the device fails to work correctly if you happen to run into devices or web sites that send packets of less than 64 bytes. Keep that in mind if you plan to purchase this.
I was able to set up easily enough, but could not get it to broadcast.
After 1 12/ HOURS on a chat line with their technical support, they finally decided I was applying it correctly and needed a RE1000 by LinkSys.
According to them, this product is only for games and streaming video. Not a Smart TV (which receives its signal by wifi).
I read over 50 reviews on this site and their were a few who specifically claimed they used this as an extender.
I will return this product, and purchase a Range extender from another company due to their tech support. It shouldn't take 45 minutes to discover that "I am eligible for 299 days of free chat line support". I have the chat windows emailed to me - actually pretty funny now that I look at it. They ask a question, I answer it. They ask another question, I answer it. Then they repeat the first question, I answer it, they claim I mixed up the IP addresses (I didn't it was only 5 lines above, you can check that). Then they want the whole set up described. Did that. Then they need the serial number. Gave them that. Then they want all my personal info - phone,address so on. Gave them that. Then they wanted the whole set up described again. (Again, it was about 25 lines above, but apparently that was too complicated for them to understand.)
I have had more meaningful technical conversations with 3rd graders (and way less frustrating). Good job guys. Really.
