This unit took more than one try to enable but once I got past several "device not found" and a few more wireless "search not successful" messages, it finally worked, without doing anything more than choosing the "try again" button over and over. It took me an hour to install and probably should have taken 15 minutes. I am not a network pro but I am usually able to complete tasks like this without help. Don't plan on doing this install in a hurry on a bad day, but if you want to listen to your PC audio on your stereo wirelessly, this device is worth the effort. I am streaming internet radio from a laptop to my home stereo and it sounds perfect.

The WMB54G music bridge is very difficult to set up. And has a tendancy to quit working. It draws a lot of current (2.5A) and gets warm. Operating a Microwave oven totally kills the music. I do not recommend this device to anyone.

Product Overview

The Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge lets you bring the digital music streaming to or stored on your computer to your Home Entertainment Center, without running cables through the house. The Wireless-G Music Bridge sits by your home stereo and connects to it using standard consumer electronics cables. Then it connects to your home network by Wireless-G wireless networking, or if you prefer, it can be connected via standard 10/100 Ethernet cabling. The included software creates a virtual sound system in your PC, which sends the audio output of any application to the Music Bridge and the stereo system.
