Expensive and worth it.

  • Summary: This is a high-end access point with a high-end price. It looks impressive, it works well, it's dual band, it has all the features you would expect from an enterprise-class AP. I docked it a star (probably would only have been half a star if I could) because it's expensive and while it supports Wireless Distribution System you can't use, say, the 2.4GHz to get on a Wi-Fi network as a client and bridge to the 5GHz. This is admittedly a niche need.

  • Summary: I purchased two of these devices for an outdoor wireless bridge between two buildings that was not economical to link physically. Right away, the date bug struck me as unconcerting. D-links support response was even more so. I had a lot of problems getting the bridge working. WDS with encryption would fail handshake, and client to station mode would filter out my ethernet-only phone system's voice and data packets.
  • Pros: Familiar UI to anyone who has used other DAPs Heater is a plus for cold environments Mounting was easy and straightforward, included mounting hardware is a big plus over similar cisco solutions. Pole mount option is nice to have, too. Very powerful radio/antenna (too powerful for my purposes actually - I had to turn down the power because I kept getting stuck beacons)
  • Cons: No firmware updates available, despite finding one glaringly obvious bug almost instantly (and the same bug has been on the 2553s for a whole) - you can't set the date to any time past 2012. Support says use NTP, but I have yet to see it pull any time down via NTP. WDS mode appears to be buggy, authentication issues abound when using WPA. Looking in the logs, it appears its changing the first group of the MAC to 00. Not sure if it is actually doing that in the backgro...
