The wireless bridge is working like a charm and was very easy to set up. The key is to set it up at one of your networked PC's BEFORE you attach it to the panel. (I recommend using the PC that is hard-wired into your router for setup purposes.) I purchased a Linksys bridge and the directions were very easy to follow. You simply plug the bridge into an outlet and connect it via an ethernet cable to your router, install the software, answer a few questions (Domain name, for instance), add a WEP (or other) security key code (assuming your network is using one...something that I strongly advise) and the software will set the bridge up for you. Then, unplug the bridge from the router and the electrical outlet, move it to where the panel is located (plug it into another electrical outlet in that area), and connect the ethernet cable from the Pioneer panel to the bridge. At this point, when you turn your panel on, you should see that it is getting an IP address from your network router and you should be good to go.
Honestly....It was VERY easy to set up.
