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.<br /><br />Setup, install and forget for years. No need to reset all the time, connection is stable.<br /><br />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.
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...
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.
Summary: If I had carefully read the instructions I could have saved myself some headache time. This is the first product I have used where you need to assign a static ip address to your computer to set it up. Once I assigned an ip to my computer it was a breeze. Connection speed is great and it so far has zero problems and a fast link up to the main router after power down regardless of the order I power items on.
Summary: this was a great addition to my existing wireless router. My existing wireless router could not cover my entire house and this AP help fill in the gap. I can now work from any where in the house with full wireless singal. this was very easy to setup. I just connected to my existing Ethernet switch and used my iphone to complete the configuration in 10 minutes it was up and running configured to match the existing wireless security configuration.
