2 out of 5 eggsFun while it lasted...

Pros: - Fast
- Easy to connect
- Rock solid 4-port switch built in, see Other thoughts.
- Wireless AC
- Easy on the eyes (looks cool)

Cons: - Extremely unreliable connection
- Signal strength was reading 18% when the router I'm connecting to is less than 10 feet away (one room over and a floor down)

Other Thoughts: The wireless worked beautifully for a month. After that, however, it would drop out for about 15 seconds every hour. So I guess it's good for Youtube and stuff like that, but for online gaming, stay away.
The 4 port switch is the only thing this has going for it. As I got the access point for (cheap) on sale, it was not worth it to return to Newegg (and I was out of the return window if I'm correct) so I now use it as a simple 4-port switch for LAN parties, and for that it works flawlessly. I have also ran a CAT-6 cable to the room the wireless access point was, and have no connection issues (well, duh).

5 out of 5 eggsgreat wifi bridge

Pros: This thing is so fast, I liked it so much that I bought 2 more. I got tired of usb ac adapter with slower speeds

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: This is far better than usb ac adapters, faster and more reliable

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome bridge at a really cheap price

Pros: Great little device, I've been running this for about 2 months now, works like a charm.
I get an average of 50MB/s (~400Mbit) from my basement to the main router (which is 2 floors up).
Super easy to set up, pressed the WPS button and I was done.

Couldn't ask for more at this price point.

Cons: Setup might be over simplified for some tech-savvy people. There are really no available options on this unit.

You can change from Automatic assigned IP to Static IP for the unit. and choose whether or not to enable QOS. That's it. If you want more options this isn't the device for you.

Static IP is really the only option I wanted/needed so it's simplicity works for me.

Other Thoughts: It's definately got a stronger antennae than your average wifi card or ordinary device.

I have my HTPC and PS4 hooked up to this, neither device was getting remotely close to the 400Mbit I'm getting now using this bridge.

Connection is definitely stronger and more reliable.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for the first few months

Pros: Compact design. Initially easy to hook up once I figured out I needed to add all mac addresses to my security configuration. This unit has two, had to add both in order to make a connection to my Netgear router. Took a day to sort that out.

Cons: WPS does not work with this unit. Don't bother trying. Once manually connected it was great for the first few months streaming media to the upstairs media room. It stopped connecting yesterday and been fighting it and reading all the help files and forum posts I can. Very disappointed.

Other Thoughts: Loved the idea of not needing to run a long and ugly ethernet cable up the stairs but considering it again. Once in, I never have to worry about it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Fat Elvis,

Thank you for letting us know about what hapened. This is definitely not the experience we intended you to have, nor have we seen this from our testing. We'd like to get to the bottom of this ASAP and deliver you the experience you intended to have. Are your other wireless devices working and stable when connected to your router's 5GHz network? We'll need to properly isolate the current situation so we can identify what is the cause. We recommend that your reset the WUMC710 and update/re-flash its firmware. Then, do another factory reset after the firmware update to ensure that the new firmware will sync properly to the device. We are willing to help you get this straightened out. Send us an email at LinksysCares@linksys.com together with the link to this review so we can properly assist you. We look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsThis did the trick

Pros: Easy to set up. Attractive design. It adapts quickly after power reset.

Cons: No cons that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I have this Linksys device paired with my Asus RT-AC66U. I have computers in my garage that I had been struggling to get a solid connection with. I have two access points The AC wifi is farthest from the garage and I rarely connected to it. The N wifi was closest but always had little issues. I put this bridge in my garage and it connects better to the AC than the N. It is as if the AC wifi truly wants to do AC first. The speeds are solid and stable. When I turn the power back on in the garage, it doesn't take long to sync. The computers have no trouble getting separate IP addresses.

3 out of 5 eggsLimping along...

Pros: Manages to do what I need it to do most of the time.

Cons: A couple months into owning this thing it randomly stopped connecting. It could see the network but would not connect at all. I only managed to get it to connect again by making my 5GHz network broadcast wireless a only.... so much for speed.... It also needs routine resets (maybe a couple times per week). Definitely no good for anywhere you want reliable infrastructure.

Other Thoughts: I guess since it does work most of the time and does accomplish precisely what I bought it for (even if it needs manual resets), I can't give this thing less than 3 stars.

Other users have mentioned that this unit gets hot and that is definitely true for me as well.

Oddly enough, Windows Media Center is far more reliable and responsive through this with wireless a than it ever was with wireless n even though it goes a fraction of the speed... Thanks Linksys helping me stumble upon this nugget with your defective product I guess...

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

Thank you for sharing with us your experience with the unit. We'd like to offer our assistance in improving your connection as this was not the experience we wanted you to have. We'd like to get the model number of your wireless router to help us isolate this matter. Email us the details, together with your contact information, location and the link to this review at LinksysCares@linksys.com.

We look forward to assist you.

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.
