WET200 or another bridge?

    Hello all,

    because I'm looking to connect some devices in my living room thru wireless (streaming client, PS/2) I would like to know if someone has experience or knows about the WET200 bridge.
    Can't found something in the forum.
    How is it, reliable, good, any suggestions?

    Don't want to buy ethernet2wireless bridges (they only work for one device - now switch/hub between) - had bad experience with Dlink...

    I don't have yet a "N" wireless network, just a "G", so for the moment it should be enough.

    Or, does someone knows if I can use the WRV200 as a bridge to connect the clients (actually the WRV200 is my access point) ?

    Thanks in advance,
    Yasmin

    if you need a wireless bridge use a WRT54GL with 3rd party firmware.

    Hi Simon,

    why the WRT54GL, it's a router?

    Regards,

    Don't know, didn't saw the price also for the WET200.

    Just wanted to know if the WET200 will do the work for my needs and one already tried it, otherwise just an idea to use the WRV200 as a bridge (if it's supporting this) and get a new "N" access point.

    i take it then your wireless clients are all N devices and you need this requirement?

    no, for the moment i have only "G", but i would upgrade (at least the access point) and begin with "N" if i can use the WRV200 as a bridge.

    if not, i will stay with "G" and i have to buy a bridge for the living room equipment.

    Afaik the WRV200 does not support bridge mode in its current form. it does support WDS but this is limited to the same type of chipset. Thibor found the WDS on the WRV200 was not worth using with a WRTSL54GS in WDS mode, due to the WRV200 Chipset drivers.

    It's a router, but with 3rd party firmware it can be a wireless bridge. I've got one company running 5 of them off a wrv54g on a production floor.. They work awesome!!

    oh, good.

    but: will the WRT54GC also work (with alternative firmware)?
