Summary: Signal strength for this unit, with an external antenna, is no better than that of my Verizon Westell 7500 router with only an internal antenna. No advantage to the external antenna that is delivered with the DLink.
Summary: I purchased this item and i am very unhappy. It never worked correctly, after two days of installing it it stoppede working. After installing for the second time it improved. However its range is not even 2 feet. I seriously do not recomend this item!
Summary: I have used several of these. A refurbished one failed after a few years, and one recently purchased from another vendor had no signal strength. That vendor refunded promptly, and did not want to exchange, as he was concerned that I did not know what I was doing.
Summary: The DLink dwlg700ap has been the subject of criticism and praise as worthless to easy to setup. I wanted it as an access point to connect my wired LAN (with a Linux proxy server as gateway and addresses 192.168.1.x) to wireless devices such as other computers, laptop, and smartphones.
Summary: I purchased 2 of these items with the intention of setting one in the main area, and the second across the building in repeater mode. The box stated that you can extend a wireless network, and the manual stated that you can put the device in repeater mode.
Summary: I have had this product for over 6 years. I recently bought a Linksys G router to replace this one, but Linksys died just after 6 months. I then had to use my old D-Link again. I now will upgrade to a N router, and one thing is sure that I will never ever waste my money on a Linksys.
