The WES610N 4-Port Dual-Band N Entertainment Bridge from Linksys is an exceptional way to stream media or data to your Ethernet-ready computers or media devices via your wireless network. Because this bridge supports wireless -N, -B, -G, and -A standards, it can wirelessly connect to routers or other bridges that support these standards. The bridge can transfer data at a maximum rate of 300Mbps. Once your router is connected to the bridge, you can use the bridge's four Fast Ethernet ports to connect a multitude of Ethernet-enabled devices to your network .Those devices include Windows, Mac, or Linux computers as well as HDTVs, game consoles, Blu-ray players, and more.

This bridge operates on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands so as to reduce interference on your network. Dual band allows you to stream latency-sensitive traffic, such as video or VoIP, on the 5GHz band. Plus, with the built-in Quality of Service prioritization, you can have the bridge ensure that all latency-sensitive traffic is forwarded first on the 5GHz band. In terms of security, the bridge features a Wi-Fi Protected Setup button so as to immediately setup a connection with your router. In addition, the bridge utilizes WPA2 security to keep your network protected.

            After a bad experience with a similar product from Bufalo the Linksys WES610N installation was easy. It took longer than it had too because of my own misunderstandings.
            Our WES610N is working happily with our Verizon Mifi 4510 wireless router. The Linksys folks confirmed that the WES610N was the best choice of their products to connect multiple wired devices.

            Setup is easy with the included software. More advanced users will like the HTML interface.

            This bridge is one of the few on the market to offer 2.4GHz or 5GHz connectivity. I am running mine on a 5GHz network.

            The included 4 port switch is worth the extra money. I originally bought the WET610N and returned it.

            Wish the four ports were gigabit. So far I haven't run into any issues, but the extra bandwidth connectivity would be nice considering my PS3 has a gigabit port.
