Does the job

Jonathan M Schneider, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • 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.

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 d...
  • 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. The second egg I docked is from the ac adapter failing after about a year, I had to buy a replacement from radio shack fo...

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.

Either I got a lemon or I've configured it wrong or the gigabit switch doesn't work

William T., Newegg
4 July 2012
  • Summary: I paired this with a DLINK DIR-825 Wireless router. I'm posting the exact same review I posted for that one because I have the exact same issue with both devices. Like I said in my title, either I got a lemon or I've configured it wrong or the gigabit switch doesn't work.
  • Pros: As a bridge it allows all my wired devices to talk to my router in the back room.
  • Cons: The gigabit switch sucks.

It actually did work as a bridge (for me ...)

Philip B., Newegg
23 December 2011
  • Summary: I'm very happy with my Netgear 3700AV wireless router. If Netgear had a product with these specs, I would have bought it without checking competitors' products. But they don't, so I ended up buying this product.
  • Pros: It does what the specs claim, at least as a wireless bridge. It wasn't too expensive. The four Gig-E ports are a real plus. It allows me to replace a Gig-E hub. Using the wizard but configuring the device manually, it worked as a bridge as soon as I changed IP address (to match my IP address plan...
  • Cons: After reading all the 1-egg reviews, I started to regret ever buying this device. I was lucky enough to not encounter all those issues, but even this unit has issues. Before I did any configuration, I checked the DLink website to see if I had the most current firmware. I had v1.40, but the latest...

Not a wireless repeater!

Daniel R., Newegg
6 November 2011
  • Summary: My wireless router is on one side of the house and the only place I have trouble getting a signal is on my side of the bed on the opposite side of the house. All I wanted was a device to put in my living room to repeat the signal to and from my room.
  • Pros: The wireless AP works as advertised. I didn't try bridge mode because I'm OK with everything being wireless, and I just want better wireless connectivity for my phone. The AP has exactly the same wireless range as my DIR-655, which is decent but just too short to reach my room.
  • Cons: Though it did have some trouble switching from WPA to WPA-2 so I decided to just leave it with the random WPA key encryption. The router stalled when I tried to save the change and I had to reset it to factory settings.

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

Harold Balzak, Amazon
16 September 2011
  • 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.

Does not work with WRT160N

Alton T., Newegg
11 April 2011
  • Summary: I wish more manufacturers made a similar product, but one that would correctly connect to the Linksys product. The WRT160N is a good router with excellent range. A product that would connect to it with the same features as the DAP-1522 would be great to have.
  • Pros: Great features; dual channel wireless bridge plus 4-way Ethernet switch. How could you go wrong? (Ans below)
  • Cons: Does not work with Linksys WRT160N router. I spent maybe 10 hours trying to get first one, then a replacement working with my WRT160N, then found a series of messages in the D-Link forum about the same problem. Apparently, no one has been able to make this product connect reliably to a WRT160N in...

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.
