User Review

  • Pros: Works great with XP 32 bit.
  • Cons: I upgraded all my systems to Windows 7 64 bit and found there is no 64 bit support for any windows! What a bummer. It is a useless brick now.

Don't Bother

Jamie R., Newegg
3 June 2009
  • Summary: Pass on this product. Get an Airport Express.
  • Pros: Works occasionally.
  • Cons: Crashes constantly. The PC connector software is buggy. Setup is difficult. Linksys doesn't even list this product on their website anymore, so there is no chance that any of these flaws will be addressed with firmware/software upgrades.

Junk

Dan F., Newegg
19 May 2009
  • Summary: Used this for more than a year. Put up with its quirks and setup hassles till it abruptly died and could not be resurrected. Gave up and bought an Apple AirPort Express, which has worked pretty much flawlessly as a music streaming device for the past two years, without turning itself into a digital...
  • Pros: Streams any audio your PC can play.
  • Cons: Any audio your PC can play includes alert noises and other intrusive junk. Poorly made.

finally got it to work

Anonymous, Newegg
12 April 2009
  • Summary: Apparently the WMB doesn't like special characters in the WEP PSK pass phrase. I used a 63 char string with just letters and numbers and it finally connected. Now it works great.
  • Pros: sounds great once it works
  • Cons: obviously released with firmware bugs

  • Pros: None so far
  • Cons: It doesn't work with vista, it keeps disconnecting all the time, the optic port didn't work.

Very Reliable once set-up correctly

Alexander P., Newegg
10 January 2009
  • Summary: Linksys tech support is there 24/7 to help you and I have excellent service from them
  • Pros: Great sound, I have used this product for over a year now and have been very satisfied with it. Had to download the latest software and upgrade the firmware to version 1.3 to get it to work with Vista. Also need to make sure your playback device is defaulted to speakers for WL-G speakers. Going t...
  • Cons: No cons to speak of, this product will work great when set up correctly. Make sure you are within range of your WL router.

Terrible Setup Utility

Michael A., Newegg
30 December 2008
  • Pros: The idea of a simple wireless music bridge is great, if it works for you.
  • Cons: I spent an entire weekend trying to set this thing up. Usually Linksys has such good setup utilities, but not for this product.

Easy setup

John T., Newegg
29 December 2008
  • Summary: None
  • Pros: We have a whole house network and I was concerned that with six computers all using the same network that it would affect sound quality through the home stereo/theater system. WRONG. Great product. It does what I wanted it to do. In spite of previous reviews I found the saetup to be easy. It took...

Vista not supported

Jason T., Newegg
1 December 2008
  • Summary: Newegg Customer support rocks! I was out of the normal return period, but they still allowed the RMA because of time spent working with Linksys.
  • Pros: Worked with XP as advertised running up to date software and firmware.
  • Cons: Did not work with Vista at all. Multiple hours on multiple days with Linksys support failed to resolve. Software would crash on launch on three vista machines (2 running home premium, 1 running business)
