great Bridge, March 13th, 2014
works great. Set up was a little confusing but once done works great

Works like a charm, August 19th, 2013
My router is located on the second floor of our house with the Blu-ray player in the den located in the basement. Placed the WES610N next to TV, plugged it in and followed instructions. It took about 30 seconds for the WES610N to make connection with the router. Netflix, youtube, Pandora and other apps I tried work flawlessly! Couldn't have asked for better performance.

Setup easy as 1 - 2 - 3., August 17th, 2013
Couldn't ask for easier setup. From start of installation to fully up and running with devices attached took about 3 minutes. Working flawlessly.

Excellent connection for Xbox game console, December 4th, 2012
Had wired connection from router to xbox in media room, but something happened to the cable/connection and it stopped working. Was going to look at powerline, but found this media connector from Linksys. Was easy to setup using the wps buttons on router and device. Wired it to xbox ethernet port and works great. Son is now happy that his xbox is back online so he can game and watch netflix. Great solution.

Excellent for streaming media!, July 22nd, 2013
I purchased the WES610N about 4 months ago, to replace at WET610N. I have this unit wirelessly connected to my E4200 router, and then have my Directv DVR, PS3, my Panny plasma, and Panny Blu-ray HTIB connected to the WES610N. This allows me to stream HD content from Netflix, etc from the Panny units, HD On-Demand from the Directv DVR, etc. Works great, set-up was a breeze. Only concern is when I look at the Status page on the web GUI, it only shows 65% connection strength to the router which is only located 20 feet away; can't see that it negatively impacts performance but still puzzling. All in all, a great product.

No problems - period.

Good bridge between WiFi and Consumer Electronics, December 4th, 2012
After a little trouble setting up the Bridge to connect my DVR, DVD player and TV to the WiFi, everything is working fine. The setup was not too bad and it found the WiFi router(also LinkSys) with no trouble using the "connect" mentioned in the instructions. Highly recommended!

I Could Not ask for anything better at this point, December 5th, 2012
This Bridge is Awesome!.. I hooked it up... Pressed the Link up Button did the same on the router and POOF! ONLINE!. It's FAST and does it's Job to perfection. I then went into the setup pretty much like you would any Linksys Router and changed the password etc.. It Does what it was met to do! PERIOD and Does it without Fail so far. :o)

Great product, December 5th, 2012
I use this in my bedroom which has a smart TV, an I also have a WD live connected to it. It is so much better to set up one device wireless and just plug and play everything else

A really great device!, December 5th, 2012
I've had this router for about a year or so and I love it. I did alot of research before buying it. It does everything and does it well. It has dual band which works well for different electronics. I havent had any problems and it was easy to set up. I called support once on some questions regarding the dual band, they were very helpful, great support as well. This one's a keeper!

  A reviewer from New York
Worked very well, December 8th, 2012
The Router is in the house, the bridge is in an out building 40+feet away signal penetrates a brick wall. This along with the use of an extender did bring a sufficient internet signal to the outbuilding.

Solid way to connect multiple devices wirelessy and effortlessly, December 8th, 2012
This "N" class bridge works perfect for connecting multiple etherner devices if you do not have a hard wire etherner available. Setup is very easy. I did not have any issues and it continues to work well. I wish I had bought the new "AC" class bridge but that requires a new "AC" class router and more money. So, "N" Class remians the cost effective way to connect.

Awesome, December 10th, 2012
I have the Linksys WES610N universal media connector downstairs in our Family Room. My Linksys EA4500 Wireless Router is upstairs in my Home Office and the WES610N connects wirelessly to the Router upstairs and then I have my LG Receiver, Roku video streaming player & Sony Playstation3 game console hard wired to the WES610N. All my media streams to my LG Plasma TV in seconds. I have never had a problem. This product is the best. I would recommend this to anyone.

Linksys WES610N Great Value for the Price!, March 15th, 2013
Easy setup Works as advertised No maintenance needed It just works!

  jklincewicz from Philadelphia
Trivally easy, March 15th, 2013
This took about 45 seconds to set up (including running up two flights of stairs .. and I'm old.) Instantly integrated with my Trendnet Range Extender. Performance is flawless (as far as I can measure.) VERY happy with the purchase.

  LAKERMN from Fullerton
A Great Bridge with Easy Setup, March 15th, 2013
I use this bridge to connect two DIRECTV HD DVRs, a Slingbox and an Internet TV. Setup was seemless, especially with the push button connection to the router. Highly recommend if you got the cash ($129.99).
