Summary: It is easy to setup and use ( I didn't have problems with the web interface), but the switch does not handle large data transfers between devices as Gigabit speeds. I had lots of dropped packets until I purchased a separate Netgear switch to plug into the wireless bridge.
Summary: It's functional, and easy to set up a wireless bridge if you have 2 of these. With the latest firmware I haven't had any bridge-failures in a while. But the documentation is misleading, suggesting 2.4/5GHz can be used at the same time (notice the little 'both' button on the screenshots) This is NOT...
Summary: There are no link lights for the network ports. I've never had a network switch that didn't indicate if there was connection or traffic.
Pros: 4 port Gigabit switch - nice feature on an access point.
Cons: I have revision H/W ver B1. It has a switch on the back with which you can select either 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz. What I expect from a Dual Band access point is the ability to both simultaneously. Incidently, the Quick Start manual doesn't mention the 3-position switch. The 3rd position is Bridge. It only...
Summary: I like this device and wanted it to work, but as a wireless bridge it fails miserably. It constantly looses sync with the main router, and when it goes down it takes down the whole wireless network.
Pros: Works well as a router. Great signal strength.
Cons: Bridge mode constantly locks up. Anytime you reboot your main router it looses the WPS information and you have to resync. Web interface is tricky to get to.
Summary: This was a waste of 4 hours of my Saturday, beware of this product, do not buy it unless maybe you have the WPS button to work off of, maybe. I returned this the same day after futile attempts to have any use for this.
Pros: Unsure, was unable to make this work.
Cons: Here are the reasons why this product lost 3 eggs. UI - the fact that the paper manual, and the DVD did NOT tell you how to connect to the router (IP settings, see one of the reviews that has a step by step web page link) via web. Apparently it is expected to only be via WPS button. Range - my or...
Pros: Initially it worked ok Small and unobtrusive
Cons: Worked ok for a year, then started having problems Started having problems at the 1 year mark Stopped working at 16 months as a bridge, which is what I got it for. Won't reset so I can try to reconfigure. So much for my confidence in DLink
Summary: Of all the WiFi routers and access points that took just minutes to setup/configure the DAP-1522 is a big hassle and took several hours to actually get it to work in wireless bridge mode.
Pros: A pretty plastic white brick.
Cons: DAP-1522 does not have WiFi range extender or WiFi repeater feature, had to use an old D-Link WiFi router as an access point connected to the DAP-1522 to extend my existing WiFi network. WPS doesn't seem to work with the Linksys WRT54GL router, had to opt for manual wireless setup. Was getting dr...
The case of the missing manual. WPS does not work !
10 January 2011
Summary: This has to be one of the most frustrating electronic devices I have ever owned, in 20 years of using computers and 15 working as a software engineer. It really needs to be stated here that the easy "WPS" setup of this device just does not work as described in the manual.
