XBox Live-wireless

Amazon
10 September 2014
  • 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...

Capable WiFi Bridge

Cameron W., Newegg
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Originally purchased as a bridge for a Playstation 2, which worked well until we moved the unit within reach of an Ethernet port. Following this, the bridge continued to be put to use to internet-connect a TiVo unit, and performed fairly well in this role until we discontinued use of that DVR.
  • Pros: Fairly easy to setup. Performs well, decent stutter-free throughput. Supports 802.11b/g, WEP/WPA encryption.
  • Cons: Doesn't support WPA2 encryption. Sometimes won't reconnect to the WiFi router once the lease expires or following power interruptions, etc. Requires a "wall-wart" power adapter.

A good product but the setup software is not good.

jcara059, Ebay
23 August 2012
  • 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.

Works with my LG Blu-ray player

briangraham1979, Ebay
1 June 2012
  • 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.

Gets the job done for general networking.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 May 2012
  • Summary: I wanted to move my wireless router closer to the center of the house, but I had several wired network devices in my office. Rather than run wires or buy a slew of wifi-cards, I picked up the WET54G and attached a small network switch. It has served me well for general network use.

The Bridge to Nowhere

Randy Stevens, Amazon
15 July 2009
  • Summary: I spent about 6 hours trying to get this bridge to work and still was not successful. The installation CD assumes that you have a Linksys default network, which my DSL router is not. So, the setup program cannot "find" the Bridge.

Horrible

Aaron G., Newegg
8 June 2009
  • Summary: After changing channels, security settings, everything, the units "disappear". I have two of these "beauties" installed as a transparent bridge to connect a pump house to an internet connection to simplify my life.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Will not stay connected. Constantly having to reboot units to keep bridge up.

Linksys Bridge WET54G

Brenda, Amazon
30 May 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this bridge because I had previously purchased the LG Blu-ray player with Netflix streaming. I didn't realize the Blu-ray had to be physically linked to my router or modem to work. Long story short, this did the trick, but not without the wonderful support person from Linksys.

Picky but awesome

Robert E., Newegg
30 April 2009
  • Summary: I gave this 5 eggs because, in spite of its faults, it kicks <censored by Newegg>. I have 2 and am ordering another for my Xbox. I have recommended several to friends and family who have 0 issues once they're configured.
  • Pros: This bridge supports WPA-PSK and WPA-PSK2 (v3.x). Connection to an older Linksys router (WRT54G v2.0) has been rock solid with almost zero downtime for well over a year.
  • Cons: This bridge is expensive (compared to competitive brands), fickle, and the configuration is not intuitive.

Crashes almost daily, requiring power cycle

Scott G., Newegg
31 March 2009
  • Pros: Good web interface and fairly easy to use.
  • Cons: As mentioned in a few other reviews and on other online forums, v3.1 of this device crashes regularly when using WPA-PSK wireless encryption. I have to manually power cycle it every few days, and sometimes more frequently. I'm looking around for a suitable replacement.
