  • Summary: As a dedicated AP I expected better performance(range) that a wireless router but I find it's about the same. The price however is higher.

Works great -- if you can figure it out

Ned Ludd, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: It took me several hours of interface misery to figure out how to use this thing as a wireless bridge. Once I did I found it worked fine. If you're a determined power user who's not afraid to noodle around you'll likely have the same experience. BTW: don't assume, as I did, that just because your router is made by D-Link that this device has been preconfigured to talk to it.
  • Pros: Fast, Secure, Small
  • Cons: Nonintuitive

Nightmare Installation!! You MUST reset your router

James, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to connect my xbox 360, blu-ray player, Tivo, and HD-TV, all of which reside in my living room, to my Trendnet wireless-N router which sits in my bed room. It took me almost SIX HOURS to successfully get this thing on my wireless network. Here's where I went wrong: I followed the directions. The directions state that all you need to do is hit the WPS button on the unit and the WPS enabled wireless router - they should automatically sync - sounds easy right?

Great Access Point, Great Software, Poor Range

Christopher Hiestand, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: It might bear noting that I'm technically proficient, and I've used several access points and switches over the years. This was my first D-Link purchase in years only because Linksys's reputation has become pretty terrible. Overall, this piece of equipment is GREAT, with a HUGE caveat that the range SUCKS. I used this router for about 3 weeks before I replaced it with the D-Link DIR-825 because of the range problem. The 1522's user interface isn't bad.

5 stars for how well it works, minus 2 for angering me during set-up

Michael Christofield, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: I purchased to pair with the DIR-655 router and a DSM-750 media extender, both from Dlink. Depending on how you feel, this product could be anywhere from a 1 - 5 star item. The thing works great, which is the most important aspect to me. However, I would say that the range is less than excellent, thus a half star off for that. Another half star off because the reset button is pretty much useless.

D-Link DAP-1522 Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge/Access Point

Alden, pricebat.ca
10 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Performs nicely after it is set up adequately. Took me a couple of hours to set up simply because I had to play with the IP configuration in Windows 7. The simple one touch button set up does not function after you initially plug the device to a energy outlet. Manual was useless when it comes to explaining how to set up the device as a bridge, ap or on automatic mode.

D-Link DAP-1522 Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge/Access Point

  • Excerpt: It seems fast It is difficult to set up, and I had to get in touch with support. The Net pages for the wireless in bridged mode DO NOT perform on a Mac with Firefox or Safari. I had to use Windows and Online Explorer to set it up!I was seriously disappointed that it does not do each bands simultaneously.And I was attempting to associate with a D-Link DIR-825, so the one-push setup need to have worked, but did not simply because D-Link utilizes 192.168.

D-Link DAP-1522 Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge/Access Point

Astra, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Bandwith is hefty and access times are speedy. Uncomplicated to setup when it operates as made. Purchased 2 units. One particular performs wonderful as a bridge. The other ought to be energy cycled each and every two-8 hours in order to function as an AP. Kudos to tech assistance for wasting small time in authorizing the RMA.

D-Link DAP-1522 Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge/Access Point

Germain, pricebat.ca
28 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Affordable but that's due to low-cost functionality. See cons for reason. In the Bridge Mode, it does not assistance WPA2-Enterprise/Radius Server and only assistance WPA/WPA2-Private (Should state this in their product description). In the AP mode, it only supports single Band, NOT DUAL BAND. This item would be best if the functionality (WPA/WPA2 enterprise) in AP mode is in the Bridge mode and AP mode help dual band.
