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.

Summary: I don't have much to add for the 1522 device review that hasn't already been said. The device works well once setup, but the setup process is awful. As a computer engineer, I usually ignore any review that states that setup is complicated. As it turns out though, the setup of this device in bridge mode really is complicated because it just doesn't setup like it should. The router I used with the DAP 1522 is the D Link DIR 655.
Summary: I had to use this device as a wireless access point in my dorm because wireless connectivity was so horrible in and around my part of the building, and It worked perfectly! Most dorms don't allow routers or other devices with their own DHCP's because it confuses the servers when devices are setting their own IPs and often addresses are copied or duplicated. This device is a perfect fit, and worked within ten minutes of opening the box.
Summary: Not a big fan of DLINK at all, but given this is the only product available for what it does I had to bight the bullet. As others have said it is by no means a plug and play event to get this thing up and running. Maybe it is if you are connecting to another DLINK product, can't say. Anyways, here are a few tips that worked for me... 1.
Summary: I have now purchased two of these devices from Amazon, after being so pleased with my first. (Note: The first had firmware 1.21, the second 1.40, but 1.40 is not available on D-Link's web site despite being dated 1/14/2011.) The DAP-1522s are an excellent tool to connect wired Ethernet devices to your wireless LAN.
Summary: We have a 2wire router that came with our Uverse installation. It works fine, but the wireless signal is weak and limits wireless access to about half of the rooms in our house. The router also does not support 802.11(n). I purchased the DAP-1522 to spread wireless coverage across out whole house ("access point" mode) and provide 802.11(n) operation. Setup was confusing, as I first tried following the DLink instructions. Forget it - it was a mess.
Summary: Replaced an older wireless access point with this DLINK DAP-1522 and I'm very pleased with it so far. I've only been using it for a week now but the wireless signal on my Droid and my notebook computers has drastically improved over my previous 802.11G device. I was leary of the internal antenna, but it is much better than my previous AP with external antennas. I get a very good signal outside my house at pretty good distance.
Summary: Having read soooo many reviews of the difficulties involved in getting this device to bridge properly, I budgeted several hours to get the 1522 up and running. Because I have the DLink 655 router, I thought I would attempt to follow the quick start manual which suggested push button setup. At first, I powered up the 1522 as suggested, saw the orange light (when set in bridge mode) blink a few times, then pressed the auto button on the side of the unit.
Summary: Ordered this device to bridge my media (TV, BluRAY, XBOX360) with my existing wireless network. Setup was pretty easy using push-button-connect, my wireless settings were copied to the bridge and connectivity was immediately established. Unfortunately, the device does not properly handle Ethernet traffic and would seemingly at random bring down devices on my network with inappropriate ARP broadcasts.
