Summary: I should have read detail spec at manufacture site before buying this thing.
Pros: Simple to setup. I actually bought two of these (for a benjamin) to set one as AP another as Bridge. Setup as bridge is pretty easy if you have WPS aware wireless as this model.
Cons: Outdated wireless router. What p.ss me off is that this is not a/b/g/n router as advertised here. And this thing not dual bands. You have to pick one band, 2.4Ghz or 5GHz.. 5Ghz band is weak not even cover a small home. No parental control to block sites. What a waste. Most routers, even echeapo,...
Summary: if you need wifi In another location and don't want to use range extenders this is for you.
Pros: wow this thing is great! my router was in my main house. I ive in the house we have in the back. ran 100 feet of cat 6 from my router to this device now I have wifi for all my devices. install and setup was a breeze maybe 10 min after running the cat 6.
Cons: none.. I cant believe it either, works as advertised.
Pros: None. I can't think of anything good to say about this piece of equipement
Cons: I went through configuration nightmare that is mentioned in several reviews and in the press. Once it was up an running it was completely unreliable and worse it would lock up the switch that it was connected to after a 3-4 hours. I reset it a bunch of times. Upgraded the firmware. I was even goi...
Pros: Push button configuration with my DIR-655, seems to maintain a connection from day-to-day unlike the DAP-1522 that it replaced.
Cons: There's a weird glitch when you select the Wireless Settings page in the setup... you see it flash up all the settings momentarily, then see only a minimal set of options. This prevents you from making any changes to the wireless settings, but maybe that's due to the push-button configuration.
Summary: Mine came with factory firmware (flash code) that was buggy. v1. the AP lamp (to LED) was dead. so was the wifi transmitter. 2.4g-AP , had problems. I flashed it to 1.02.bin level and the unit works far better than my dreams. Always flash routers ,the first thing.
Excerpt: For 3-4 years had DAP-1522 as WAP + 4-port switch in upstairs gameroom ... just died one day. Was about to replace it, but D-Link now has DAP-1525, and after reading a few online reviews, bought it @lowest price, from B&H... arrived a few days later (fast!).
Summary: If Dlink had delivered what they wrote on the box they would have something. But it's too weak, too finicky, oh-and did I mention that the instructions are just about worthless? Sorry Dlink, nix the WPS and call it a basic AP for really small apartments and you would have something there...
Pros: Sigh. Good idea? Like the design. Can act as a bridge or WAP. That's about it, barely worth two stars for that.
Cons: Where do I begin? It's supposed to be a range extender, but at 10 ft from it I barely get a 'good' signal. That's no walls between, just me 10 feet away. Right now, it's about half as far from me as the main AP is, but I am connecting to the main AP! This morning (it does this regularly) it decid...
