Does it's job

Christian P., Newegg
21 October 2013
  • Summary: The 5 ghz range is poor but that's standard with all 5 ghz devices. Also nowhere on this thing's description does it say "simultaneous dual band", so why dock eggs for it not being able to? People shouldn't be bashing this device because they are ignorant.
  • Pros: I get good reliable speeds with this thing. Used it to connect my HTPC, PS3, DVR, and Voip over 5ghz N to my router upstairs about 30' away. Even with a lot of signal loss I was streaming high def videos perfectly that wouldn't play correctly at all over 2.4 ghz. At half signal you are going to destroy 2.4 ghz speeds.
  • Cons: The UI on this thing leaves something to be desired, I took an egg because it is truly bad. Setup can be a pain the first time around for something that should be very simple.

  • 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

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.

  • 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.

12 February 2012
  • Excerpt: 30 feet away with a wall among, I get 65 Mbit w/ two.4ghz and 85 Mbit w/ 5ghz. Move additional, and greater stick w/ 2.4 band. Those aren't connection speed numbers- those are delivered iperf numbers (typically much less than half of reported connection speed).Snappy response to web interface, fairly extensive config selections.Runs cool. Soon after getting a Netgear lock up or degrade all the time due to self baking, this was refreshing.

  • Excerpt: D-link is a solid business, I've had superior luck with their products in common. Wireless-N regular is the newest and greatest. I've been employing this factor in wireless bridge mode to connect a Vonage VOIP router to my house network with out having to set up my phone's base station close to exactly where my cable modem is. It's been various months and the factor alternates between getting reasonably reliable and totally flaky, with choppy audio and dropped calls.
