4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, but Static Setup

Pros: High speed network extender and 4 port switch in one. When WPS didn't work, I feared the range would be insufficient, but no problems getting two of these to work at 20' and 40'

Cons: Never was able to get WPS to work even after resetting and changing 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels on router (BTW Ch 1, 6, 9 and 11 are 2.4 GHz and the WUMV710 only extends 5 GHz so I would not expect much improvement changing 2.4 GHz channels).

This static setup recommended by Linksys support worked fine:

Other Thoughts: Thanks to Linksys Support for the follow up. Saved me! Upgrading to 4 eggs, but gotta knock one off for the WPS trouble.

1 out of 5 eggsWPS Does Not Work, Can't Setup

Pros: Specifications and price with discount. Upgrade to a WET610N that had worked flawlessly.

Cons: Cannot get WPS to work no matter where I place the unit wrt the router (Arris SBG6782-AC)... 40',15', 2', 2" doesn't matter. The wireless LED never lights and WPS times out with amber light. Tried resetting multiple times; still no WPS at any range.

In desperation I tried direct connection to the router hoping it would at least pull an IP address. Still no joy. Nothing on the router DHCP client list. Seems like more than just an RF interference problem. At this point there is little I can do besides RMA.

Other Thoughts: This looked like a really good deal for a Wireless-AC bridge plus 4 port switch from a reputable company... now... not so much.

I hate to be negative, but this is kinda looking like the manufacturer is dumping a product that doesn't work so well. Too bad 'cause this is would be a great unit if it worked as advertised.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

We appreciate your response to this product. Allow us to help you set the device up. It is possible that the device cannot detect the wireless network due to wireless interference. You may change the channel to 1, 6, 9 or 11, reset and re-configure the bridge.

If it won't still connect, try to set it up statically following the steps on this link, http://kb.linksys.com/Linksys/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=e8c929c747424d7f9e5ce6d5ea66e6df_Checking_and_configuring_the_IP_address_of_the_Linksys_WUMC7.xml&pid=80&respid=0&snid=6&dispid=0&cpage=search.

Email us your response at LinksysCares@linkys.com, indicating your name, location, contact details and the link to this post. We'd be glad to hear from you.

3 out of 5 eggsBroadcom Chip should have a heatsink attached

Pros: Works great when it works.

Cons: Has been failing once a day for the past month or so. Opened the case and the broadcom chip has no heatsink and gets extremely hot.

Other Thoughts: I left the case open with a fan blowing on it. For the first time in a long time no failures in a 24 hour period. This thing works great other than the apparent overheating. Going to attach a heatsink and maybe add some larger vent holes.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Allow us to investigate into the situation. Is the wireless bridge not enclosed in a cabinet or not on top of another device? Tell us more about it via email at LinksysCares@linksys.com, indicating your name, contact details, location and the link to this post. We'll be glad to hear from you.


Sincerely,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product Works flawlessly

Pros: Fast, Reliable, User Friendly

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Setup on this device was a breeze. No need for brand compatibility. I replaced a similar Draft N device with this one. Setup on the AC1300 took five minutes compared to the previous device at one hour plus. Streaming Live HD TV over WiFi takes major bandwidth. The N device could only manage around 300Mpbs and HD stream was bad. Now I am clocking in at around 900Mbps and HD is perfect. I use the Nighthawk Router. Distance from router is around 30ft. I bought a refurb AC1300 and it gets used daily without any problems what so ever. With these results I will be buying these for all my non 5G devices.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: Have used similar units before. Great functionality.

Cons: The wireless on my unit did not work at all. Would not pickup any wireless networks, even when sitting right next to one of the access points.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with VMware ESXi host 5.1, but needs active cooling

Pros: This device is special because the built-in switch makes it compatible with many solution where most WiFi bridge dongles would not work. I am able to run a VMware ESXi 5.1 host over WiFi with this, whereas most other WiFi bridge dongles would not work.

Cons: The other reviews are correct - this device runs very hot. I highly recommend getting an active cooling solution. I started to have connection drops after a day or two. I eventually thought of using a laptop cooler pad to force air up through the bottom of the unit. That works like a champ, keeping the unit cool, and connectivity has been completely solid, ever since. Note that the device only supports the 5GHz band; there is no 2GHz connectivity, at all.

Other Thoughts: I host an ESXi v5.1 server and a FreeNAS 9.1 server wirelessly behind mine, and I get very good throughput over the 5GHz connection after adding an active cooling solution.

3 out of 5 eggszWUMC 710 Media Connector

Pros: Small in foot print and an excellent Newegg discounted price.

Cons: The WUMC710 Media connector has to constantly be rebooted (Power Cycled). This is a known issue for quite some time. Too bad Linksys hasn't fixed this problem yet.
