|The versatile Dual-Band Wireless-N Ethernet Bridge can make a wired Ethernet-enabled device a part of your home’s wireless network. Connect it to a gaming console to get access to your wireless router and the Internet and play multiplayer, online games. And it’s optimized for streaming video, so you can connect it to an Ethernet-enabled HDTV, Blu-ray® Disc player, DVR or set-top box and discover a whole new world of Internet entertainment. You can also convert your wired-Ethernet printer, scanner, camera, storage device, notebook, or desktop so everyone in your family can access these devices wirelessly.
Since the Bridge is based on Dual-Band Wireless-N, it works with any device supporting Wi-Fi standards, and is compatible with Wireless-G, -A, and –B products. You can operate the Bridge in either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz radio bands to avoid interference from competing networks. Or you can push all your bandwidth-intensive activities like video streaming and gaming to the less-crowded 5 GHz radio spectrum for an optimal viewing experience.
The Wireless-N Ethernet Bridge is designed to set up on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. Since there are no drivers to load, setup is a snap – configure the network settings through your computer’s web browser, then plug it into your device and go.
To help protect your data and privacy, all wireless transmissions can be encrypted with industrial-strength Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA2 security. Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ helps make secure connections pushbutton simple.
