Instant Wireless® Series
Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge
Connect any Ethernet-equipped device to a
high-speed Wireless-G Network
he versatile Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge can make any wired
Ethernet-equipped device a part of your wireless network. At
home, use the Bridge to connect game consoles, set-top boxes,
or computers to your Wireless-G network and its shared high-speed
Internet connection. In the office, convert your Ethernet-wired printer,
scanner, camera, notebook or desktop into a wireless networked
It’s completely driver-free, so it works on any platform and under any
operating system! Since there are no drivers to load, setup is a snap—
configure the network settings through your PC’s web browser, then
plug it into your device and go. And physical installation is simplified
by support for Power Over Ethernet. With an optional POE Adapter, you
can mount the Bridge wherever you want—power and data are both
supplied through the Category 5 Ethernet cable.
You can also use the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge as a kind of “cableless cable” to connect remote areas together. Maybe Shipping is all
the way across the warehouse from Receiving. Or maybe you want to
set up a home office in your detached garage. With a Wireless-G
Ethernet Bridge in the garage, and another one (or a Wireless-G
Access Point) in the house, you’re connected—no digging trenches,
and no overhead wires.
