Ships with BAD firmware, most LAN ports wont work

Nicholas Horvath, Amazon
11 February 2015
  • Summary: 1.0 Firmware is terrible. Causes IP conflicts (even with static set) and LAN ports wont work in Bridge mode. Updated the firmware, eliminated the IP conflict but you are only able to clone 1 MAC address, therefore only one LAN port will work as a LAN port. For devices like Open Mesh wifi modules that requires their MAC to be accessible this can cause a problem. D Link support was unresponsive. Took 6 of these units before we finally ironed out all the kinks.

Perfect solution

john m., Newegg
11 August 2014
  • Summary: Good TO GO ON A.
  • Pros: Put 2 computers and a security DVR on it. Works perfect.
  • Cons: Not really a con but good advice. Never mix brands on a WiFi network. you might get away with it but also might not. A lot of weird things can happen ..I have a WiFi network with 30 devices and found out mixing brands can lead to quirky things ...I am all D-Link now and ALL the mysterious STUFF has stopped.

Unit only works for a couple months

Cat G, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: When the DAP-1533 works, it works well. Set up is pretty easy--I'm using it in Bridge mode. But on my first unit, the ethernet ports stopped working after one month. It was no trouble to exchange with D-Link, but the replacement unit is starting to fail as well. Restarting the unit fixes the problem, for a few days unit the ports stop working again. Just not worth the price for the low reliability.

If you plan to use this DAP-1533 as a Bridge with 4 LAN ports, BE WARNED

David Hempling, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: All devices connected thru the LAN ports of this bridge will appear with the MAC address of the DAP-1533's own MAC address, so only one LAN connected device can be reached outside of the bridge - provided you enable the DAP-1533's MAC address cloning and give it the MAC of that one device connected to it.

It WAS the perfect solution....

Scott Moffitt, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: This was the second DAP-1533 I purchased. The first one was a perfect solution using both the 2.5 and 5 gig bands simultaneously and connected to gigabit LAN devices. Unfortunately, the LAN ports failed. Found a couple of reviews on line stating they had the same problem. I suspect anyone using this at 100M LAN connection do not see this issue.

Worked fine until it died

Suzanne B., Newegg
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Just died after a few months. D-Link customer service is completely unresponsive.
  • Pros: Dual band, easy enough to set up, seemed to work well (though it's always hard to be sure with wireless products)
  • Cons: No antennas. IIRC has to be switched on again if power goes off - no auto restart.
