Linksys wireless N bridge WET610N

Linksys WET610N is a dual-band wireless Ethernet bridge based on IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 and optimized for video transmission. WET610N can operate in either 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz radio bands (selectable dual-band), and it is fully backward compatible with widely deployed 802.11a/b/g infrastructure, 1-Port 10/100 Mbps half or full-duplex modes, auto-sensing, integrated QoS features.
The IP Address is set to DHCP, if you have a router or DHCP server check the DHCP Clients table for address. If there is no DHCP Server detected the Bridge will default to the IP address with no user name and the password is “admin”.

WET610N does not have default IP address. It will pick up one from the DHCP server.
First check the settings of your router.
If it is secured then make sure that you have the correct network key/password.

  7. I have Linksys WET610N and it is not working. I have been using this for more than 2 years without any problem. It is connected to my play station. But somehow I am not able to play games now. I am not sure whether it is router problem?

  8. Thanks for the help. I was trying to reconfigure my Linksys WET610N wireless bridge with the new E4200. Your technician helped me to setup ,y bridge with the play station and it is now working just superb…

  9. Thanks for your help. Your technician helped me to install my router and wireless network. The support is very good.

  10. I can not setup WET610N with my play station. My play station does not have wi-fi and that is why I bought WET610N. I did run CD and it was successful. But when I connect it to the play station, it does not pick any IP address. What could be the reason?

  11. Thanks for your help. Your technician helped me to configure my old Linksys WET610N wireless bridge manually. It was very good experience. He guided me properly on chat.

  12. WET610N bridge works great with N series wireless routers. I am using this bridge with WRT600N and getting good connection. I had to upgrade firmware on both the devices. I have my DVR system connected with the bridge.

  13. I was trying to configure my bridge with the new E3000 router. I am not sure about manual settings. How do I retrieve the settings of my router. I has WET54G before with the old WRT54G router. I recently upgraded to the N series.

  14. You are right Chris. WES610N has 4 Ethernet ports where you can connect 4 different devices to get Wi-Fi signal. I think if you want you can also attach a switch and increase the number of ports.

  15. I think Linksys has new wireless bridge which has 4 Ethernet ports. So that you can connect more than 4 devices.

  16. This device has only one Ethernet port on it. What if you want to connect more than one device to the wireless network?

    Let’s consider that you have one play station, one xbox and two desktops in one room, close to each other. Your router is in a different room and sending signals. Now you don’t need to buy 4 different bridges for all the devices. You can simply buy one Linksys Wireless bridge WET610N along with 5 port or 8 port Ethernet switch.

    You can connect all your devices to the switch with the Ethernet cable and then connect the switch to the bridge. In this way all the devices will be able to access the wireless network.
