Summary: When I first decided to explore 'wireless' networking, I did not want a router (already have that) nor did I want the wireless device to be a major 'point of failure' in my network. A little research led me to looking at access points. The DWL-7100AP was a perfect fit for me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I use two of these on the 11a band as bridges between two wired networks. They are 30 feet apart and can see each other down a hallway with obstructions that nearly block the line of sight from both sides. I have both set on quarter power. The status indicates no errors on either direction.
