Replaced a LinkSys 802.11a+b access point

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 November 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.

Stable, rock solid

Talkative, Amazon
16 November 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.

Great WAP for the Price

Sourdoughnerd, Amazon
14 November 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.

Solid, reliable 802.11a access point

Zac, Amazon
10 November 2008
  • 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.

good performance

it, Amazon
9 November 2008
  • 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.

DWL-7100AP

Richard H. Westfall, Amazon
31 October 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.

Top-notch product and support

Mike M., Amazon
28 October 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.

Some good features, some disappointing.

J. Clifton, Amazon
27 October 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.

Solid performer with many options

Robert Crone, Amazon
26 October 2008
  • 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.

bad firmware worse technical support

M. rubin, Amazon
26 October 2008
  • Summary: The product shipped with defective firmware which causes it to reboot every few minutes. Drives you crazy when you are browsing because your browser will lock up. Dlink has a firmware fix you can find on their website, but when you download it you will not know how to install it in the WAP.
