Summary: We have two of these APs serving a large restaurant with multiple rooms, and connected to a D-Link router DIR-835. These APs and router were easy to configure and to install, am using the PoE.
Perfect AP/Bridge for commercial or wide-area residential

Summary: Dlink's AirPremier N PoE AP/Bridge replaces an older model 3200AP, which was a fantastic access point all on its own. Both are completely compatible with the other. Basic differences and likely the reason for price difference is that the current model does not come with the PoE adapter.
Summary: The DAP-2360 is a bad product. It is unstable - has to be rebooted at least once/day, and loses the signal constantly, sometimes never coming back, which then prompts a reboot. I have had the Dlink 2553, which as a lesser product is actually much better.
Pros: Has standard antenna jacks. Works reasonably well in a single-AP application
Cons: Not compatible with WDS in any other model, including from D-Link. You can only use this in WDS with another DAP2360. Pre-sales at D-Link even told me that it would work in a WDS environment with a DWL-3200AP. Firmware is incredibly buggy, and certain combinations of configuration options cause i...
Summary: I'm just using it as an access point to replace the unsatisfying performance of two different consumer router/wi-fi units. Not using any VLAN, multi-SSID etc. stuff so I can't comment on that, but if you're looking for a better wireless performance for your home network, this is great.
Pros: Excellent signal strength and connection stability compared to the typical consumer wi-fi router solutions. It replaced the wi-fi part of a couple of all-in-one router/wi-fi units and the difference is nigh and day. Stronger signal and completely stable (like being plugged in). I turned off the w...
Cons: None so far, except if you count cost. Yeah, it's more expensive but it's in a different league, so it's worth it to me.
Summary: I am running a half a dozen of the old D-Link DWL-3200AP access points and have found them to be mostly bulletproof if you are in need of a rugged metal case AP. This model adds Wireless-N to the same case and is painted white.
Pros: These are rugged, will handle many connections at once, POE and have lots of options
