Linksys WET610N Dual-Band N Entertainment Bridge?

Woot has the Linksys WET610N Dual-Band N Entertainment Bridge for $19.99 plus $5 shipping. Worth it?

I know many are down on recent Linksys routers, but reviews seem okay for this bridge. Apparently a firmware update and a couple settings tweaks makes for pretty decent performance.

Considering a travel router with bridge support instead, but most of the reasonably priced models are 2.4 GHz only. Any thoughts?

Unless you're certain that it would fit your needs, i'd skip it. might be good but i'm unfamiliar with it.

Could use a bridge, currently have an AirPort Express pulling bridge duty, which is a bit of a waste given its capabilities.

I'm in for three as I'm doing the same and I have a friend using dial-up for her TiVo because their wireless adapter is pricey. Then I'll have one for a spare. Of course I'll need to add a switch since the bridge has only one ethernet port…

"pretty decent performance" is how I'd describe my results with this device. That's an excellent price.
