Linksys Wireless Bridge Wet610n

WET610N is a dual-band wireless Ethernet bridge based on IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 and optimized for video transmission. WET610N can operate in either 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz radio bands (selectable dual-band), and it is fully backward compatible with widely deployed 802.11a/b/g infrastructure, 1-Port 10/100 Mbps half or full-duplex modes, auto-sensing, integrated QoS features.
The IP Address is set to DHCP, if you have a router or DHCP server check the DHCP Clients table for address. If there is no DHCP Server detected the Bridge will default to the IP address 169.254.1.250.
WET610N does not have default IP address. It will pick up one from the router or DHCP server.
You should know the wireless settings of your network.
If your wireless network is secured then make sure that you have the correct wireless network key/password.
How to setup WET610N:
Connect WET610n to the router with the Ethernet cable.
Open the setup page of your wireless router and go to the DHCP client table list. In this list you will find the devices connected to your network. You will find the IP address of the bridge. Note down that number.
Open the Internet browser and in the address bar type the IP address of the bridge. It will open the setup page of the bridge.
Click on Wireless tab and go to Wireless Network site survey. Select your wireless network from the list and try to connect. If it is a secured wireless network then enter the password of your wireless network. It will connect to the network.
Now disconnect the Ethernet cable from the bridge and power cycle it. Now try to ping the IP address of the WET610N.
If you are not able to find IP address of your bridge in the DHCP client table of your router then you can try another way to access the setup page.
Connect WET610N to the Ethernet port on your computer. Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds. Release the reset button and wait for 30 seconds. Power cycle it.
Now open the Internet browser on your computer and in the address bat type 169.254.1.250. Log on to the setup page and try to connect to the wireless network.
Once the wireless bridge is configured successfully, you can connect it to the device that you want to use in the network. You can use it with special devices like Play station, BluRay player or Xbox also. If you have more that one devices that you want to use it wirelessly then you can connect the bridge to a switch and connect all the devices to the switch. In this way you can connect multiple devices to the wireless network using only one wireless bridge.
