im sorry im terrible with networking terms. But what is usage for wireless bridge with gigabit switch? And how does one make one?
Think of a wireless bridge as a big wifi adapter for devices to plug into. A router with gigabit ports like this one can make full use of the bandwidth provided by wireless N speeds (whereas a router with wireless N and 10/100 will be limited by the the 100Mbps LAN port even though the wifi is going at 300Mbps). The gigabit switch simply allows more devices to be connected to the bridge.
Examples of usage include connecting a XBOX 360 to a wireless router for much less than the $50 Microsoft adapter and wireless printing for a printer with a LAN port.
I'm thinking of setting up a home office where I'll need to provide network/internet access to multiple devices/computers but unfortunately there isn't a cable jack to put my cable modem in the room I have in mind. So I can just leave my current router where it is and bridge to this TRENDnet one to provide internet access to 4 devices at once rather than having to buy a wireless adapter for each device. Not to mention that all of the devices physically plugged into the router will be able to communicate with each other at gigabit speeds. I was thinking of going with a powerline networking solution but this may work out just as well or better and at a much cheaper price.
