For some of us, wired network connections are not always possible, even if they should be preferred. Generally, there’s nothing to say against the use of wireless networks, as long as all works stable and reliable. But that’s not always the case and the search for the cause is seldom easy.
In most homes there’s a place where many devices (like e.g.: TV, game console, set-top box, streamer, endpoint, …) come together in close space. In my experience, when they all use their own radio to connect to a wireless network, the stability is lost. As most of these devices also have ethernet connectors on their back, the use of a wireless bridge to replace as many of these individual radios as possible with a single one can be highly beneficial.
However as it turns out for me, it is not easy to find a reliable working wireless bridge. Here’s the place to share your experience about working and non-working setups.
Keep in mind that every bridge has two sides and don’t forget to mention the modem, router, mesh-device your using.
