DAP-1522 Wireless Bridge/Access Point Description:

The D-Link Xtreme N™ Duo Wireless Bridge/Access Point is designed for users looking to create a wireless network or to connect multiple wired devices to an existing wireless network. Xtreme N Duo is the latest addition to the award-winning Xtreme N product family. Duo means the DAP-1522 works with next generation dual band (2.4GHz or 5GHz)* 802.11n wireless devices as well as legacy 802.11g products.


Bring your wired devices into the Wi-Fi world with the DAP-1522 Xtreme N® Duo Wireless Bridge. You’ll be Xtremely glad you did.

These products use the current draft version of the 802.11n standard. Compatibility with other draft-n and current 802.11n products is guaranteed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. However, some features were added in later revisions of the spec, and it is possible that they will not work correctly. In most cases a firmware upgrade will solve any problems (consider if you feel confident performing such an update). Also, while 802.11n is designed to be backwards compatible with 802.11g, 802.11b and 802.11a, it had been noticed that -n can interfere with the operation of current 802.11b and g products.

Price range: $74.99 – $102.24

HD Movie :and You Tube streaming on to my TV work excellent, which is really all that matters. Customer support, which you will need to set it up, was probably the most knowledgeable I have worked with in recent years. Works with Apple Time Capsule..

Cons: Difficult to set-up unless you happen to have a d-link router and use the one-button set-up. Call 24/7 help desk and they will walk you through set up. Manuals are weak. Also, range is limited. Can’t go in a drawer or cabinet. Needs to sit on top..

Summary: For the price, it is a good product. Actual data streaming works very well, which is ultimately all that matters. Manuals are weak but customer service is strong. Range is limited, but sufficient if you don’t mind putting the unit on the surface.

Pros: Easy, pushbutton setup, includes 4-port hub..

Cons: Web interface could be a bit easier to access..

Summary: I have a home theater system with multiple devices that require Internet access, some of them are not wireless. The D-Link DAP-1522 allows me to route everything through a single access point, with all devices set to “wired” mode and the router assigning DHCP addesses to each device.
