Summary: I picked up the WET11 with a bit of uncertainty. I had read some of the other reviews on Amazon and a couple had been about the difficulties of using this product with the XBox. My wireless network is set up with a Linksys BEFW11S4 router, my notebook computer is linked via a Lyksys PC card, my desktop with the Linksys wmp11 and now at last my XBox with the WET11. Installation of the initial wireless network required a call to tech support, however they were great.
Summary: The one obstacle that kept me on the fence in terms of deciding whether or not to purchase an X-Box Live Starter kit was the fact that I did NOT want cables running through my bedroom into my living room in order to connect my X-Box to my cable modem. The Linksys Wet11 Wireless Bridge was the answer to all my concerns. This smart little piece of hardware was very simple to install. All you do is attach it to your PC or laptop and load up the starter disk.
Summary: After reading the specs on the Linksys WET11 and downloading the user manual from their website, I decided to purchase a unit. I am very pleased with this product and it works as I had expected. Setting it up was a breeze. The antenna is screwed on to the right side of the unit (which is surprisingly small). Plug in the power supply. I then hooked it up to a PC laptop with the supplied RJ45 cable and ran the setup program.
Connect different networks cheaply with any access point

Summary: This tremendous and inexpensive piece of gear has two great features: one, you can plug any Ethernet device into it and thus attach it to a wireless Wi-Fi network; two, you can take a network of 30 or more devices connected in a wired configuration, and bridge all of their traffic to any access point within range. This lets you hook pods of computers together without wires, bypassing expensive or difficult drilling operations or wiring configurations.
Summary: I have a PS2, a Mac G4 running OSX and a Pentium Laptop running Windows 2000 and my ISP uses PPoE and dynamic IP addressing. At first glance, not an easy combination when thinking in terms of a home network. But then I read up on routers, and subsequently, wireless technologies and it's been a snap since then. I ended up going with the Linksys BEFW11s4 4 port 802.11b* router and the Linksys WET11 bridge.
Summary: When XBox Live was looming on the horizon I started wonder how in the world I was going to get my XBox online. My TV is nowhere near my broadband connection and dragging a cable around wasn't an option. When Linksys introduced the wireless bridge, all of my problems were solved. I was able to easily connect my Xbox (and any other device which happens to sit near the TV) to my home network.
Summary: I purchased the WET11 bridge and the WAP11 access point for two reasons: to hookup my home office network and to play Xbox systemlink games. The home office usage worked well from the beginning. Setup was simple and quick. My only problem with the home network was that I was losing my connection every two hours or so for a few minutes.
Summary: We've used this device to connect our Turtle Beach Audiotron MP3 player, as well as our SonicBlue ReplayTV unit to the wireless network that is connected to the broadband connection. We would like to use this for our PS2 but can't find the network adapter anywhere. I've also heard that it works great with the Xbox. If you have any of these devices (anything with an Ethernet port), get one of these to connect to your wireless network without having to run cables.
A good product but the setup software is not good.

Summary: No complaints about the operation of the WET54g. The setup was a little difficult. The software with the device is almost useless. It had to be setup by using the web interface. The important part is it works and it took me about a half an hour to get it running.
Summary: Since my Blu-ray DVD player doesn't have built in Wi-fi, I purchased this router so that I could hook up to my network. I'm now able to watch Netflix via my DVD player. Installation was quick and easy.
