IOGEAR Ethernet-2-WiFi Universal Wireless Transmitter - bridge - 802.11b/g/ is rated3.00 out of5 by4.
Rated 5 out of 5 byBadam from Works Great so farWe have this in place in several areas of our facility and so far (about 6months-1year) they have proven reliable. We have not had the frequent disconnect issues or firmware issues we had with other brands. Contrary to the other review we have not had to assign the end device with a static IP for it to pass traffic although we have done that one some devices just because they need that configuration.

Rated 5 out of 5 byckegn from Technically limitedI discovered through trial and error that the (wired) device you're trying to connect via this wireless adapter ** must have a statically-assigned IP address **. In other words, this IOGEAR wireless adapter *will not perform DHCP passthrough*. This was unfortunately a dealbreaker for us as the device we are connecting relies on a DHCP-assigned address and cannot be statically-assigned an IP. If you can statically assign your IP on the network you're connecting wirelessly to then this device works as advertised. It gets VERY warm after only 20 minutes of use. The setup is via very simple web interface. Login, connect to wifi, and that's about it.
