This product has worked *flawlessly* for a year straight! Highly recommended without reservation!
New firmware update available from Linksys 8/31/09 (I went from 1.0.01 to 1.0.03 today). After applying new firmware, the reported signal strength increased significantly. So did the consistency and reliability of pings (previously would vary between 2ms and 410 ms as well as skip an occasional ping - now consistently below 5 ms!). I would recommend this product, but be sure to be running firmware 1.0.0.03. This update may address some (but not all) of the issues that previous reviewers experienced.
Quick shipment from Amazon. As much as I dread Setup wizards, I used the wizard supplied on the CD-ROM, which I ran from my laptop, which is connected wirelessly via the wireless router. Connected bridge to router with the supplied straight-through Ethernet cable. The wizard quickly detected available wireless networks (I selected mine - not my neighbors'). Asked me for passphrase (it knew I use WPA2 encryption) for router (Linksys WRT54G), waited a bit, then wizard told me to disconnect bridge from router and then connect the bridge to my remote device (in my case - a home-theater-in-a-box) (HTIB) with an wired ethernet connection. A bit later, wizard announced setup finished. Instantly able to watch streaming Netflix and listen to Pandora on the HTIB.
Prior to running wizard, I added the MAC address of the bridge (it's on the underside of the unit) to the allowed list of "PCs") on my router's list of allowed MAC addresses.Read more ›
But if you are not able to handle a few set-up issues yourself, reconsider. It took me the second try to set up the device through their setup disk. Then it couldn't find my wireless network, which had 2 laptops on it and was running fine. I called technical support. The manufacturer CLAIMS to offer free technical support during the 1-year warranty. But when I called, the very day my unit was delivered, they wouldn't help me unless I bought extended coverage for their router I was using with it. I didn't have any problems with the router, but they wouldn't tell me how to connect my brand new ethernet bridge to the router because the router warranty had expired. Real ripoff. These things HAVE to go through a router so everyone who calls for technical support will have a router. I think this allows them to avoid giving any technical support on this unit without the customer paying. I figured it out myself eventually - without the assistance of the very unhelpful representative.
My only reason for the downgrade from 5 to 4 is that none of the documentation that I saw stated that it could only run one device through the bridge. I find that to be rather ridiculous for the price. At least two to four ethernet connections should have been enabled for $95. So my downgrade is related to the price for function rather than anything wrong with the device.
I bought a WET610N to replace my Xbox 360's wireless adapter.
I have it connected to a WRT610N (which I assumed was the best of it's kind). I am using WPA2 personal with a static IP address and QoS. The WET610n disconnects every other day and has to be completely reconfigured from ground zero. Apparently this is a known issue ([...] ) It amazes me that Cisco is unwilling or unable to fix their flagship devices to work as advertised.
The issue is apparently related to the passkey re-authentication that periodically takes place in a WPA2 environment. I have changed that r-authentication from the default 3600 seconds to the maximum 7200 seconds; this has reduced, but not eliminated the problem.
DO NOT BUY THIS COMBO UNITL CISCO FIXES THE FIRMWARE.
In addition to my connection being less stable, the wireless sigle strength is no better between these two devices than it was with my Xbox 360s wireless adapter and my old WRT54G running DD-WRT firmware. As far as I can tell, "Range +" or whatever they call it is no more than a marketing gimmick.
