Bridge to Somewhere
The versatile Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge can make any wired Ethernet-equipped device a
part of your wireless network. Use the Bridge to connect game consoles, set-top boxes, or
computers to your Wireless-G network and its shared Internet connection.
Easy Installation
It’s completely driver-free, so it works on any platform and under any operating system!
Since there’s 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.
Get Connected
You can also use the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge to connect remote areas together. 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.
Wide Compatibility
Works without drivers on Windows®, Macintosh®, Linux®, PlayStation®2, Xbox™, or
proprietary devices – anything with an Ethernet port!

The maximum performance for wireless is derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance can vary, including lower wireless
network capacity, data throughput rate, range and coverage. Performance depends on many factors, conditions and variables, including distance from
the access point, volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, operating system used, mix of wireless products used, interference and
other adverse conditions.
Specifications are subject to change without notice.
