Summary: The documentation is pretty abysmal for setting it up as a bridge. It would crash our network if I connected it directly to the network while in bridge mode. I had to set it to AP mode, update the firmware, reboot, configure, reboot, and then configure it as a bridge from a PC that was connected...
Pros: Once it's up and working, it's reliable and painless.
Cons: Look online for instructions for getting it set up as a bridge. The documentation has huge gaps in it.
Summary: Installation should not have been difficult. I've installed many routers/APs before. Instructions seemed straighforward: connect to computer, plug it in, type in IP address, follow instructions on web-based window. Except that the web-based window never appeared. Lights came on the AP as expected.
Pros: Great range at 2.4/5 GHz Works well with D-Link 655 router Guest zone is a great feature Great price
Summary: I only use 2.4GHz because of the pitiful 5.0 signal. Minis one egg.
Pros: I've had two of these for several years and I haven't had any stability trouble with either one using 2.4GHz. I'm buying a third one. I use them as an external antenna when a wireless card can't pick up a strong or steady signal. Not their intended purpose but they work.
Cons: 5.0GHz is almost worthless. 60% signal when less than ten feet away with no abstractions. I'm using this with a D-Link Xtreme-N router. Signal almost zero when traveling through one wall. 2.4GHz is strong. 5.0 signal not steady enough to stream anything. 2.4 streams well.
Summary: It does setup fine, play fine, and has great speed.
Pros: Decent Speed, works great with ASUS 66U
Cons: This is a major for me, While behind the DAP-1522, you CANNOT connect to a xbox that is behind the same DAP. So If Im hosting a lobby in BO2, and I invite the person sitting next to me IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO JOIN. But, if I have someone outside the house host a lobby, we can both join. With the abov...
Summary: wire connected this as an AP to a DIR 655. After a couple of minutes of faffing about with IP address got it working, plugged 3 devices into wired ports and using it as switch. Tablets, phones etc connect to WiFi.
Pros: easy to setup, price (if you buy with the discount)
Cons: none yet, although my experience with DLink after the DGL 4300 has been less than impressive
Summary: I purchased this to get a better wireless connection with my audio-video equipment. I had to contact tech services to obtain help in setting it up and did not have very good expectation due to previous dlink equipment but to my surpise other than a slight lanquage barrier not bad they were very...
Pros: Seems to work great so far. I have a great signal and it seems to be of pretty good quality.
Cons: I had a little bit of a problem setting it up. The directions were sketchy at their best and there was no software help.
Summary: I tried setting this thing up many times with the suggested firmware via dlink representative version 1.41. I got nothing but constant disconnects, stalling and hangups. My roomate gave me a piece of his mind quite a few times for not setting this thing up correctly.
Pros: Gigabit ethernet ports, wireless N, possible to learn about altering domains, ap/bridges. Network lights on front let you know excatly what the ap/bridge is doing.
Cons: slow transer rates, ip address to access admin page is set outside of normal IP address designations. Big problem is keeping it connected using updated firmwares. would stay connected for a few minutes then stall for good, restart, same thing.
Summary: 3 - Now, change "obtain an IP address automatically" to "use the following Ip address" Type 192.168.0.51 in the IP box and 255.255.255.0 in the subnet mask box. Click okay and close everything out.
Pros: I bought this device to use as a bridge. Took me a bit to get this device working. Told myself I would post how I did to hopefully help other people. My problem was I couldn't actually log into the DAP1522. Below is a "how to" for connecting to the DAP1522 using Windows 7.
Cons: Only negative is having to figure out how to log onto the device. I did the following in order to log onto the DAP1522. 1. - Turn device to bridge mode. Plug in and power on device. Connect device to computer by hard wire using ethernet cable. 2. - On the connected computer click start type netwo...
