D_Link AP Review.

Mark A. Jabaay "Indiana_Mark", Amazon
8 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this D_link access point with the intention of using it in my home. Much to my surprise it did not come with a power supply. I though well I guess I missed it in the discription, it must have said without power supply. Well it does NOT say without power supply but I guess it does not say With power supply.

More than I needed, actually

Stargeezer, Amazon
24 May 2010
  • Summary: Been a firm (and perhaps paranoid) believer in wired home networking, but in order to surprise my wife with a new wifi iPad, I needed to relax a little and stick on an access point. What I mean by "more than I needed" is that probably WEP would have been sufficient security for a home network, but it doesn't hurt to have wpa-psk, anyway. You just never know when a commie spy will be driving down the road attempting to patch into my wife downloading iPad apps.

Solid performer with many options

Robert Crone "Cable Guy", Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Good feature set in menu. Can actually be used as a gaming adapter in Client Mode which is good for games or video download features on satellite and cable boxes. Has enough output power to cover two bedroom houses and small offices easily.

DWL-7100AP

Richard H. Westfall, Amazon
8 September 2008
  • Summary: I used 2 of these to network between buildings. The buildings are 742 feet apart and these work great. No matter what the weather is, we have never lost the connection. I highly recommend this if you need a long reaching connection between buildings.

DWL-7100 AP as an AP Client is terrible

RoBoTg, Amazon
1 September 2008
  • Summary: I'm not sure how the 7100 is supposed to work as a repeater but as an AP Client linked with the DI-784 it simply won't stay connected. I'm running the latest firmware on both devices,DWL-7100ap is running v2.00 and teh DI-784 is running v2.38. I've tried multiple configs for the encryption, different radio channels while the 2 devices are only sitting 2ft apart and it still won't keep a connection.

Some good features, some disappointing.

J. Clifton, Amazon
16 July 2008
  • Summary: Good range and works well as an AP or AP client. On the other hand, the advertised WDS mode does not work, so if you are buying to string together multiple AP's, don't bother.

Top-notch product and support

Mike M., Amazon
2 July 2008
  • Summary: I've been running 2 DWL-7100AP's 24/7 for 4 years and neither of them has so much as hiccupped. I had to call D-Link Support when I was initially setting them up in order to get them to communicate with my Linksys router, but Tech Support had them working in about 15 minutes. Since then, perfect. Last week I replaced the Linksys router with a new D-Link DIR-825 wireless router and had to call D-Link support because the 7100AP's would not connect to it.

Great WAP for the Price

J. Benjamin Haga, Amazon
1 July 2008
  • Summary: Firstly, this is a WAP, not a router. Secondly, for a cheap WAP, this works quite well. It is nice to finally have a WAP that can work with 802.11a/b/g all at once, and well I might add. For day-to-day use, I have one of these working as a repeater and it has not yet to fail me since I purchased the product months ago.

Stable, rock solid

Talkative, Amazon
28 June 2008
  • Summary: I've have had a variety of routers over the years and none were stable. I finally got fed up and decided to use a separate AP and router. I chose 7100AP for Wireless AP, and used my desktop as router+DHCP. I've had remarkable stability. In my apartment complex, which is chock full of wireless routers, I have never been able to get beyond a few weeks without having to reboot all-in-one routers. 7100AP on the other hand has been going strong for months!

Replaced a LinkSys 802.11a+b access point

Amazon Customer "Mad Max", Amazon
10 May 2008
  • Summary: I upgraded from a LinkSys 802.11a+g PCI card in my daughter's computer to a DLink 802.11a+g card. At that time, I had a LinkSys 802.11a+b access point. The signal strenght jumped from very low to good. I believe this is due to the antenna design of the DLink PCI card. It is separate from the circuit card and connects with a 6' cable. This allows placement of the antenna on top of a computer desk hutch instead of on the back of the computer which may be on the floor.
