Summary: I have had this for about a week now and it seems to work fine. I bought it to get a better WiFi signal and speed upstairs on a desktop computer. I have used lots of D-Link products over the years with no trouble. Install was easy with this "cable" method using the manual mode of the D-link setup wizard: 1.Connect the 1360 to your router with a network cable to a spare router port or unplug something temporarily if don't have a spare port.
Summary: I purchased and successfully installed this access point to extend the wifi coverage in an older apartment building that has a lot of concrete walls to a room where WiFi was spotty. I ran a CAT6 Ethernet cable from my main router to the room where the DAP-1360 is located, plugged it in and configured the range extender in Access Point mode. The D-Link documentation shows clear diagrams that help you select the setup you need.
Summary: I ordered this range extender as I was having problems with the strength of my WiFi signals at home in some rooms. The signal extender works and was worth the effort. Beware that it was hard to program even though it is advertised as simple. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with tech support getting it configured. The kicker is that I do computers for work so that is just a warning.
Summary: A very flexible and capable device, this DAP-1360 can be used in a variety of ways (need to read the provided documentation to make the proper choices). I've used it to replace a DWLG820 when I added internet-enabled DVR SlingBox and BluRay to my existing XBOX - as the DWLG820 that it replaced could only be configured as a single device's bridge. Now I have all devices successfully connected to their internet resources, and all at improved WiFi-N speeds.
Summary: I have this paired with Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter,kit, Push Button Security, 2 Adapt and am happy with the performance. I'm using it as a wireless access point. I did experience the issue mentioned in a previous review about the password not being set correctly the first time. When configuring, I would recommend using the wireless setup (vs. wizard setup) to make sure all of your settings are correct.
Summary: I recently purchased an iPad and was having some connection troubles in my upstairs bedroom. My main router, a D-Link gaming router, sits downstairs about as far away as possible, so I went looking for a device that would extend my network. At first I was looking at buying another wireless router for upstairs and would then just turn off DHCP and set it to be an access node, but then found this little guy and put it upstairs, but about halfway away from my main router.
Summary: While the above prior review is accurate,the password issue seems to be the ONLY issue. The configuration works well and is simple. I believe the problem here is if you use a password that is either too long or has special characters. When you put in such a password, then it does not flag the problem, rather it just takes you back to the login screen... and then you can't login!
