"Skip the Setup Wizard; it's flawed"4.5 starson by chuckbattle
Pros: Bulletproof once connected
Cons: Setup software apparently doen't write to the device's eeprom
Summary: Don't follow the directions on the box that tells you to run the CD setup program first. You will be in for problems. Just go to the Linksys site, find and run "Easy Link Advisor" to secure your network first. Then, in that utility, find the "add a device" section and follow the prompts. Copy down the settings then open the interface browser for the music bridge and fill in the WEP info that "Easy Link Advisor" gives you. That works great, the first time.
I foolishly followed the directions and tried to use the useless wizard for two hours, unsuccessfully. Finally, frustrated, I saw the default internet address listed on the bottom of the device and went to the devise's internet interface screen and saw the WEP information I had been entering and saving, repeatedly, had, apparently, not been laid down on the device by the so-called wizard. I simply entered the WEP information, manually, saved and exited the web interface. Presto, instant, solid connection. No problem.
I had secured my network with 128 bit WEP encrytion via the Linksys "Easy Link Advisor" utility just prior to the music bridge install; that prompted me to look at the web page for it. Otherwise, I don't know how one would know to go there. But, if you follow what "Easy Link Advisor" suggests to do for the device's internet setup interface it will connect up and work like a charm, even with your totally secure wireless network.
The music streams very nicely. The audio is excellent. I find that Windows Media Player ver. 11 streams to the device, automatically, quite nicely. No need to install and learn a new software music program.
