Other Thoughts:

Until I received this unit, I was using a very old Linksys WRT54-GL router with DD-WRT firmware as a wireless bridge from the wired segment of my main LAN across the entire house to a set of consoles I have in another room (PS3, Xbox 460). For gaming it worked just fine, but it could not handle 1080P video streaming from my Windows Home Server 2011 box. The video would stutter every 2-3 seconds. But that was expected on an 802.11g 2.4Ghz signal. Knowing this unit had 802.11ac functionality, I was anxious to test this unit to see if it could truly deliver smooth 1080P video wirelessly.

This unit did not disappoint. I was able to manually connect the Linksys WUMC710 up to my Engenius ESR-1750's 5GHz signal within minutes. If you know your wireless router's SSID and security settings, manual setup of this bridge is a cinch. Just set the IP to a valid IP address for your LAN, point it to the right default gateway, and then enter the matching SSID and security info from your primary router. Then plug in the wired devices via its 4 built-in Ethernet ports, and away you go.

Whereas on my old bridge 1080P video choked, on this bridge it was buttery smooth. Downloads to my video game consoles were also very fast. This was across the entire house, at least 40 feet away, and through a couple of walls.

Simple setup. Great performance. Hopefully I won't have any of the dropped connection issues others have experienced. If it holds its connections the way it has been so far, this thing is a real winner. I wish I had one sooner.
