New Linksys Bridge for Gaming and Multimedia

Every year our Internet bandwidth is more important, with gaming and video streaming getting more important to our mutlimedia experience.  It’s hard for routers to keep up.  Today Cisco has announced a new bridge specially designed to handle your gaming and home theater needs, the Linksys WES610N Wireless-N Dual-Band Entertainment Bridge.

Cisco promises that this bridge will be able to handle all of your 3D streaming and HD media, as well as all the traffic needed to handle your games, by prioritizing your traffic.  It also has WPA2 Security and WPS to protect yourself from network hacking.  If you have a bunch of devices, you can connect them all to the WES610N which retails for the $129.99.  If you only have one device to work with, the WET610N would be a great option for $99.99.  The bridge works with all a/b/g/n routers, but it’s highly recommended that you pair it with a Linksys Dual Band-N router.

While not working as a Database Administrator, Keith Schleicher has been associated with Gaming Trend since 2003. While his love of video games started with the Telestar Alpha (a pong console with four different games), he trule started playing video games when he received the ill-fated TI-99/4A. While the Speech Synthesizer seemed to be the height of gaming, eventually a 286 AT computer running at 8/12 Hz and a CGA monitor would be his outlet for a while. Eventually he’d graduate to 386, 486, Pentium, and Athlon systems, building some of those systems while doing some hardware reviews and attending Comdex. With the release of the Dreamcast that started his conversion to the console world. Since then he has acquired an NES, SNES, PS2, PS3, PSP, GBA-SP, DS, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One S, Gamecube, Wii, Switch, and Oculus Quest 2. While not playing video games he enjoys bowling, reading, playing board games, listening to music, and watching movies and TV.
