Convert your wifi hot spot into a wired connection
10 December 2012
Summary: This product is a goldmine productivity tool for me. I didn't know such a device even existed till I searched for it's capabilities; namely to make it appear that I am on a wired connection, when I am actually going wifi! I work a cust svc gig from home. The sw we use requires a hard wire rj45 internet connect. That would tie me to a couple of spots in my house. This device has a client mode that takes my home wifi and puts it out on an rj45 connection.
Add wireless capability to non-computer wired network devices.

Summary: This is the second of these that I have bought. The big advantage of these little devices, is that they add wireless internet capability to non-computer items like satellite receivers, DVD or Blu-ray players, etc.--anything that has a wired network port. Just put it in AP client mode, set it up using the wizard with a laptop or other PC, and then disconnect it from that and connect it up to your device. Fairly easy to do and very reliable connections.
Summary: It's funny to read other posts where people are complaining that this device isn't well suited for use as their main router in their home. That's NOT what it was designed for! Sheesh! Get a router with antennas, more power, and the features needed for a home router. This is designed for use inside a hotel room or studio apartment. How much of a signal do you really need?
Pros: This is an incredibly useful and handy device to have if you travel or need to deal with tech issues at speaking engagements, conferences, etc. It comes with it's own little travel bag and all the accessories you'd need. I only wish the instruction manual was designed to fit into the travel bag as well, because you really need to keep it with the kit.
Cons: The labels on the mode switch on the bottom are almost impossible to read without a magnifying glass and with light shining at just the right angle.
Summary: Most of the time, I plug it into my router or the router at work and use it as an access point for my Itouch. At work, I get 16Mbps download speed, so it's fast enough. I did use it with my Xbox30 but gamers know that direct connect is recommended. Although I mentioned the switch is difficult, it doesn't change positions on it's own. The short Ethernet cable it comes with is handy, I just wish I was better at not breaking off the tabs on most of my cables!
Pros: Works well, have used it in all three modes. Range is good, I've connected using my Ipod touch while sitting in my car in the driveway when unit is on second floor. Interface is reasonable and user friendly. Documentation is easily downloaded. Very portable, and with the AC power adapter and the USB power adapter, very versatile.
Cons: Biggest problem: Switch to change modes is difficult to switch and markings VERY hard to read. (for my old eyes)
Summary: Great simple little router I bought the product for work With a small adapter that I built myself I run it through the batteries so I Lady Vlade Mobile him my camera AP makes him my camera and immediately broadcast the images wirelessly to a computer position quick and beautiful I've also set up a network of friends in a network game we played with everything we built this router Just excellent
Summary: It baffles me as to why this product was recalled by D-Link. It was recalled before its time. Have you ever been at a hotel/cruise ship where you only have access to one Wireless account and need to share between multiple devices? On top of that, do you have Blackberry that will not work with Java on the websites to authenticate? This thing is the solution.I cannot tell enough good things.
Summary: There are two versions of firmware that I have. One supports WEP only and the newer does WPA but is a bit touchier. I hope DLink keeps making these and improves the firmware, but as they are, they are impressive. I wouldn't make this a fulltime router if you mind occasional restarts, but do highly recommend them for your computer bag. You'll find all sorts of uses for it and employ it often.
Pros: I bought one of these for the many field service calls I used to make outstate. From client sites where wireless wasn't available to just making the hotel more comfortable using my laptop without an Ethernet cable. This amazingly small device is as versatile as it is capable. It worked so well I bought two more. These two have been running in client mode on the backs of IP Cameras for a couple years each in my garage (in client mode). Throughout the subzero winter and...
Cons: I do have to restart them about every month or two, but this could easily be from the Airport Express they connect to. I restart the three of them if anything goes wrong with any of them. Then they work well for weeks to months on end. They are running outside their rated specs for environment so I don't complain that a power cycle is sometimes needed. A small inconvenience compared to the hassle of wiring my garage for Ethernet!
Summary: Don't criticize D-Link because of the product manual. They don't know how to write them. It's fault. But this tinny box is an excellent product.
Pros: It works like charm. I have the router in my first floor on the corner and I'm writing this on the second floor on the opposite corner. The signal is not too strong at such a long distance, but I'm able to surf the Internet with no issues.
Summary: This D-Link router is a must have item. Small, portable (nice case) and works as advertised. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Pros: I bought this device because I was going to be attending a course in California that is 5 1/2 weeks long. The room I was staying at had wired internet access (Cable Modem) but no wireless. I've been using this DLink for three weeks now. Works exactly as advertised. I still have another two weeks left and I'm fully confident this device will perform as advertised. My roommate who also brought his laptop is very pleased!! We can both access the internet without having o...
Cons: Limited range. Works great in our large room though!!! That's all you need anyways. Setup my confuse some people that have limited knowledge on setting up a router.
