Great for Connecting Devices Wirelessly to Network

Strengths: Built in Web Server makes it easy to configure.

Weakness: Wireless G interface is good, Faster Wireless N would be even better.

I have 4 of these in use now. Getting ready to buy 2 more. Works great for connecting devices where Cat-5 cable is hard or impossible. Works great for Voice over IP (VOIP) - I've been using one of these bridges to connect my Vonage router to the network. Works flawlessly.

Wireless G Ethernet Bridge Linsys WET 54G

Strengths: easy set up; connects quickly to wireless network. small but stylish size.

Weakness: Requires an Ethernet cable to set up. Price is a little high.

The unit was fairly easy to set up. Unfortunately, you had to use an Ethernet cable to set it up. Once it was set up, it quickly connected to the wireless network. I liked the small size and look of the unit. I would recommend the product but would check to see if they will update it so that you do not need the cable to set it up.

A Wireless Ethernet Bridge That Just Works...

Strengths: It has good range and is pretty fast. Worked without a hitch with my Linksys WRT54GL router. After you set it up, you can just forget about it! Runs Linux. Uses a web interface and supports WPA.

Weakness: It's expensive and the narrow base makes it easy to tip over if you want to stand it up. Mine came with a firmware that's 2 years old. Competition has built-in ethernet switch for the same price.

This device worked right out of the box. I had put off installing it after I got it, dreading that it would be a long and arduous task, but in the end, I got it up and running in less than 20 minutes. The setup wizard isn't particularly useful but you can get along just fine without it. To configure the device, all you need to do is plug it into your router/switch, fire up your favorite browser...

Needs lots of Patience

Strengths: WPA encryption available

Weakness: Set-up wizard did not work.

Product supports B and G networks, and the strongest WPA encryption available today. You may need to update the firmware. And yes, set-up wizard did not work. So went to the web interface and was able to get this thing running with WPA encryption.
Not for everyone.

resets itself

Strengths: setup was okay

Weakness: resets itself every five minutes.

Works okay, _except_ for resetting itself every five minutes. Could not find a fix for that so went out and got hawking bridge/ap which works just great so far. To summarize, stay away from this one until they post a fix.
