Great for Connecting Devices Wirelessly to Network
5 Star Review   By member jbrad4 - Mar 31, 2008   

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
4 Star Review   By member mattyB2007 - Nov 19, 2007   

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...
4 Star Review   By member bravotsx - Oct 22, 2007   

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 and open up the configuration page. (The device's default IP Address is 192.168.1.226) I got a hardware version 3.1 device, but it still shipped with a firmware that's about 2 years old. If you go to Linksys's support site, I highly recommend getting the new firmware because it adds more options to the configuration and makes the web GUI more responsive and smooth. I'm using this device with a All-In-One printer/scanner about 40 feet away from my wireless router, with 1 floor and 2 walls in between, and according to the site survey, I have 100% signal strength. The maximum throughput isn't super fast, but it is a vast improvement over my previous bridge. (Logitech Linkplay) 20mb PDF files can be printed in a matter of seconds compared to minutes. In the end, the only real weakness is the high asking price and lack of features, compared to some other devices in its price range. However, I'm happy that this device simply works like it should without hassle or headache, and I'd take ease of use and reliability over bells and whistles any day.

Needs lots of Patience
3 Star Review   By member vau64 - Sep 11, 2007   

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
1 Star Review   By member eegrah - Mar 8, 2007   

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.

Linksys Wireless G Bridge - A Great Product
3 Star Review   By member drkaye1962 - Jan 28, 2007   

Strengths: I purchased Linksys WET54G Wirelss Bridge , so that I could hook up my Slingbox AV. My wireless router is too far from my satelite dvr reciver. The WET54G worked great, connecting my slingbox.

Weakness: It takes time to set up, but the technical support is 24/7. Be patient and use Linksys support if you have problems setting it up.

It is a good product which helps in extending your wireless signal in your home. You can also hotwire game systems to it to get your on-line gaming to work. This is a reliable product, with very good technical support.

It sort of worked for awhile
1 Star Review   By member rjmichaelson - Jun 21, 2006   

Strengths: For the period of time when it worked it provided a fast connection.

Weakness: Would not work with Linux even though was supposed to be OS independent. Doesn't work at all now.

I originally bought this so that I could connect a desktop PC to my wireless network on a machine that dual boots Windows XP and Xandros (Linux). I did not want to have to go through the hassle of configuring other wireless devices under Linux, and this thing is supposed to work with anything that uses an ethernet port - PC running any OS, X-boxes, network printers. For awhile I was able to get it to work under Windows and it did provide a fast connection, although it somehow caused some weird things to my network settings. It occasionally required a reset to work. I was able to get it to work only once under Xandros and it never worked using a Knoppix live linux disk even though these OS's functioned fine when the ethernet connection was hard wired. The supplied setup disk usually would not detect the WET54G on my network at first, and now will not at all. The web based access to the device worked at first, but now does not work even when I attempt to reset the device to factory settings. I did have a guy from Linksys tech support try to help me get the thing working by changing the network settings in my PC. The guy was extremely nice and really tried to help me, and I was on the phone with him for almost an hour, and he wanted to keep trying to help me but I needed to get off the phone and could not work another hour on this thing. But, like I say, at least the guy tried really hard to help me, so hard that I felt bad when I thanked him and told him I had to get going. Ironically, I bought a Linksys PCI wireless adapter, and it was very easy to get working under Xandros (but I can't get it to work using a live Linux distro). I would still love to have this thing working, because I would love to be able to give my network-enabled HP Printer a wireless connection. However, I cannot access the device (done by browsing to 192.168.1.226). Even if I did get it to work, I am not sure I would use it, because it appears to be quirky and unreliable, unlike any other Linksys product I have used. Perhaps the upgraded version works better, but I do not recommend this one.

No problems yet.....
3 Star Review   By member jsev22 - Apr 24, 2006   

Strengths: Worked right out of the box. Hasn't failed me yet....no reboots needed in first month.

Weakness: Expensive.

I bought this for a client that refused to allow me to hook up a wired solution even though the wires were in place. Unit worked as promised right out of the box. I think in the end I could have used a device meant for hooking up a game console in this manner but I went with what the manufacturer (of the unit being connected) recommended.

Not a bad wireless bridge...
4 Star Review   By member mikefromgorham - Apr 7, 2006   

Strengths: Easy setup (if you're a Windows fan...) Nice GUI, easy configuration, no maintenance required.

Weakness: Looses signal randomly. Maybe it's just me but (access to bridge configuration...STOPS?!)

I had been using the Linksys bridge to connect my wireless router to my next-door neighbors open wireless network (haha...no not stealing...technically) and it worked smooth. (Knowledge of routing definitely was key in this area) One day though, I lost connection to the wireless network, and I tried to access the config, but...wasn't able to? It just -can't- get to the config page...not sure what happened. It is really helpful though. I now have DSL and I have my Mac Mini in my bedroom, and now connect to my wireless router fine (approx. 30 feet away) with the bridge. For the money I paid, I wish I never lost the CD with the easy installation on it. I'd recommend burning a copy to be safe... I have no problems with the bridge. Technology fails? Most people think/expect not. Get used to it. Trust me, technology fails. (Windows is still around, isn't it?)

So Far Not so Good...
1 Star Review   By member kenandalison - Apr 7, 2006   

Strengths: It supposedly does what it suppose to do...

Weakness: Item was DOA, Only has one ethernet connection.

The Linksys Bridge Setup could not be accessed by the the Web-Based Browser Utility. The CD-Utility would access it some of the time, but this utility does not allow one to set the password, or change the channel. And, even after reconfiguring my wireless router to the preset channel in the utility the bridge still would not function. Device would not reset, when reset button was pressed. Linksys customer service was unresponsive. I tried to call was on HOLD for 30 mins at 6:30A MST and ended up hanging up. I tried thier chat client on their web site, but the agent I got was unresponsive. I'd ask a question, and she would say nothing. She acted like she had never heard of a Bridge. After 15 mins she disconnects me. I give up. Decided the bridge was defective, and returned item to retailer for exchange. I will update this review when I receive the replacement.

Great for connecting a wireless LAN subnetwork
5 Star Review   By member ellory - Jan 16, 2006   

Strengths: Straightforward configuration for extending your wireless network to another wired setup. Easy web interfaces. Supports the strongest encryption available

Weakness: Easy set-up wizard did not work for me. Pricey

Have a wired subnetwork that you need to connect to a wireless router? This product is for you. The easy set-up wizard doesn't work - but that's not an issue as the web admin interface is more than sufficient. Product supports B and G networks, and the strongest WPA encryption available today. Through the web interface, I was able to get up and running, with encryption, in under 15 minutes. This product is expensive, though, and if you want to connect only one or two devices, or the devices are not collocated, you'll probably find it cheaper to purchase "single devices" (USB, game adaptors) for each component. Range and speed are sufficient for my needs - all faster than my cable modem

1 Star Review   By member SFSwimmer - Mar 9, 2005   

Strengths: Easy to setup.

Weakness: The radio is completely inadequate.

The radio is completely inadequate. I also have the WET54GS5 which costs about $20 more and has a 5 port switch included - but the radio is completely different. I did a site survey using both devices... The WET54GS5 got MUCH better signal from the six or so wireless networks it found - whereas the WET54G only found a few of the networks and much less signal strength - even though the wireless bridges were inches apart - I would recommend the WET54GS5 and would suggest a pass on the WET54G.

Strengths: Very easy to setup.

Weakness: none that I've found.

Purchased to connect my xbox to my wireless router. The two devices are roughly 35 feet from each other and cross two interior walls. Xbox Live performance is very good. I've served a number of games with 6 to 8 players and no one has reported any performance delays.
