Summary: Needed to connect my Dish VIP722 receiver to my network and did not want to run Cat 5 network cable 100ft to the router. The VIP722 is not a wireless capable receiver so I purchase the Cisco Linksys WET610N Wireless N Ethernet Bridge which basically connected with the cat 5 to the receiver and then wireless to my network. It acted exactly as stated, a "bridge" to the wireless network. The directions were easy and it work in minutes.
Summary: Needed a way to link an ethernet based device in the basement to the internet through the router that is on the second floor. Did not want to punch through the walls, etc. Setup took less than 10 minutes.
