Linksys WET610N wireless bridge


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 169.254.1.250 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.
