Arrived configured incorrectly.

William A. Fuller "The Old Bald Dude", Amazon
21 January 2013
  • 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.

P.i.t.A to set this thing up

Harold Balzak, Amazon

  • 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.

Does the job

Jonathan M Schneider, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: But be clear, you need to disable to 20/40MHz options otherwise everything suffers. You can only run one range at a time (2.4Ghz vs 5 Ghz). Finally it has no place to attach an external antenna. If you are trying to cover a two story house with a basement, and plan to use this unit, buy a range extender for each floor.

Nightmare Installation!! You MUST reset your router

James, Amazon
10 July 2010
  • 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?

Poor documentation, Difficult to tweak.

Amazon Customer "DrCrispy", Amazon
9 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought the D-Link DAP 1522 to provide a bridge for my D-Link DIR-655 wireless network system. In particular, I wanted internet access for my PS3 and Sony 52XBR9. The Sony PS3 had built-in wireless G connectivity that allowed me to access HD (not 1080P) movies from Netflix. However, I anticipate that 1080P will be available from Netflix and I put a Roku box on another TV (2 TVs to a Netflix account is the maximum) so I needed bandwidth and speed.

Needs better documentation; performance was shaky

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 January 2010
  • Summary: I am giving this product a three star rating, although I eventually returned it, because I could not use it to get internet access through my Panasonic VIERA G10 Series TC-P42G10 42-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV . Here is my experience with this product. * I was able to set it up to work as a wireless bridge. It took about two hours. The product documentation, as many reviewers have noted, is not very well laid out.

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

Michael Christofield "michael", Amazon
25 January 2009
  • 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.

Great Access Point, Great Software, Poor Range

Christopher Hiestand, Amazon
6 November 2008
  • 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.

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

Nanette, pricebat.ca
23 July 2013
  • 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.
