Summary: I bought this to use as a wireless bridge between my security system dvr and wireless router. AFter updating the firmware, which was easy, I had some problem getting everything to work together. It was mostly my security system dvr that was the problem. Once I got that figured out, everything worked fine. I am not using the 5 Ghz. band. 2.4 Ghz. works fine for me. It seems like a fine product.
Summary: Replaced a slow and erratically behaving Netgear Access Point. Once this was set up it ran perfectly and has not rebooted mysteriously, nor has it stopped running without explanation. Very much a work horse...does what it's supposed to do without the need for attention. I'm a hard marker which is why it can't get a 5 rating from me.
Excerpt: I use this product for jukebox and ATMs in combination mostly with the DIR-655 because that is the best hardware among others that I have tried. Setup, install and forget for years. No need to reset all the time, connection is stable. For this order I bought 9 units, 7 of them were Rev. B. It took me a while to figure out that the firmware worked differently than the previous version. But once figured out, it was quick and easy to setup all the others.
Summary: First off, I bought this DAP largely based on positive reviews and that it was a manufacturer match for my DIR-655 router. That said, I may have a better sitution than other people using a different brand of router. Networking can be finicky at best. I was not interested in Powerline because I had too many devices to connect at one singular point and this will allow me to span a larger domicile and broadcast a larger Wifi signal as the DAP also acts as a wireless...
Summary: Arrived configured incorrectly with a dynamic IP address, so I had a really hard time configuring it. Punching the reset button didn't help, so it was set that way in the firmware. Using the URL provided by D-Link didn't work either. Eventually, I was able to figure out the dynamically assigned IP and reconfigure it correctly. Range is OK for my purposes, but it does occasionally drop the connection, mostly in 5 GHz mode. A firmware upgrade helped some.
Excerpt: I needed to connect a surveillence system via ethernet cable to a wireless mobile broadband signal. I required a little support from a DLink tech but once the bridge function was up and running, it worked perfectly.
