The Linksys WUMC710 is an easy to use media connector bridge that connects wired devices to a 5 GHz router using WPS for easy setup. The Linksys WUMC710 works well with routers that use the WPS feature but only works with a router that has a 5 GHz band.
The new wireless standard is close to being finalized and companies are jumping to get into the market with new routers and other devices for networks. Linksys has already released new routers and with that a new media connector that makes it easy to add devices like internet connected televisions.
A media connector bridges the devices that are internet ready and your home router to make connecting them easy and quick using the WPS feature. The Linksys WUMC710 uses four rear internet connections and push button wireless connectivity to connect your devices to your router.
The Universal Media Connector has speeds up to 1300 Mbps using the newest wireless standard to get the best speeds possible in your network. The Universal Media Connector connects to your Linksys network with the push of a button using WPS push button setup.
The setup uses the quick connect feature that many popular routers have built in to connect your bridge to your network but only using the 5 GHz band. The Linksys Universal Media Connector can connect to any 802.11AC, A or N router that has the 5 GHz band without a problem.
The Linksys WUMC710 had the same network speeds when I tested it through the Linksys EA6500 router wirelessly and directly connected to the router without the bridge. The bridge did not slow down the signal and I am able to both watch video and game online through the media bridge without any problems.
The media bridge is an easy way to connect computers and devices to a network using the cat5e cables then wirelessly to your network even if you do not have a Linksys router. The device was made in conjunction with the newest Wi-Fi standard and only uses the 5 GHz band but it does work very well.
Connecting devices like a PlayStation 3 or even a media center PC in my living room is very easy and only takes the push of two buttons. The Linksys WUMC710 works very well and most importantly it works with as little setup as possible using the already well-established WPS push button feature.
I highly recommend the Linksys Universal Media Connector for an easy and simple media bridge for your network.
