D-Link Wifi Day/Night Baby Camera with Remote Monitoring DCS-825L User Reviews

DCS-825L User reviews

1.(From www.amazon.com)I have been looking for a baby camera for a while now and when i saw this product i was excited that it would be perfect. As far as image quality is concerned, this is much better than a lot of the competition out there BUT only if you can get this to connect. The initial process is a painful 10 step process that will not work if you use the popular WEP wifi encryption in your household. The monitor supports WEP but “its not available yet” according to D-link. So without proper wifi support, this monitor is no different than any other local network based connection. Also, there is no proper iOS notification system in place, you have to open the app to see the notifications, obviously not helpful for a baby monitor which you want real time notifications.

i would buy it again after more positive reviews here and on the dlink 825L message board, which is currently full of people with similar issues and no real timeline for fixes.

So 2 stars because the hardware is great but the software and installation issues makes it unsuitable for its main purpose as a baby monitor

2.The camera transmits 720P video signals over your home’s Wi-Fi network, which allows you to access the feed from anywhere on earth using the mydlink Baby Mobile app on your smartphone. But if your home’s lacking a wireless network, D-Link’s Baby Camera can work as a standalone hotspot letting you connect a mobile device directly to it.

Infrared LEDs automatically come on when the room gets too dark, letting you monitor a crib from up to 15 feet away, and a temperature sensor can automatically send notifications to your phone when a nursery gets too hot or too cold. The Baby Camera also has built-in sound and motion detectors and will send you an alert when a child has become active after a nap, or you can use it to trigger a recording that’s saved locally to a microSD card.

Of course if you’re not actually there to satiate a crying baby there’s not much you can do to get it back to sleep. So the D-Link Baby Camera even includes five pre-recorded lullabies you can remotely trigger that should at least serve as a temporary distraction. It will be available for $180 starting in January, which gives you plenty of time to give your nanny their two-week notice.(From:http://gizmodo.com/d-links-nightvision-baby-cam-can-play-lullabies-for-re-1494081561)

D-Link DAP-1320 Wi-Fi Range Extender Introduction

The Wireless Range Extender (DAP-1320) enables you to extend your existing wireless network coverage by placing the Wireless Range Extender in between your router and the wireless client devices. This is great for extending wireless coverage to basements, home offices or bedrooms that might be distant from your wireless router. The DAP-1320 increases the range of your wireless network by extending the wireless coverage of an existing wireless network.



D-Link DAP-1320 Wi-Fi Range Extender Introduction

Note: Place the D-Link DAP-1320 within equal distance of your existing network/router and wireless clients.

D-Link DAP-1320 Features

• Faster Wireless Networking – The DAP-1320 provides up to 300Mbps* wireless connection with other 802.11n wireless clients. This capability allows users to participate in real-time activities online, such as video streaming, online gaming, and real-time audio.

• Extend Internet access for wireless devices – Allows you to extend your internet access throughout your home with devices such as laptops, Smartphones, tablets and more.

• IEEE 802.11n and 802.11g Compliant – The DAP-1320 is still fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11g standards, so it can connect with existing 802.11g USB and Cardbus adapters.


The D-Link DAP-1320 looks like a power adapter—it’s only 2.11 by 1.65 by 1.89 inches (HWD) with two prongs, and it plugs directly into an electrical outlet. This simple yet powerful piece of wireless technology has just a single WPS button on its side and one LED to show you connection status.

The extender is single-band only, so it won’t extend 5GHz Wi-Fi, which is perfectly okay, because it’s the 2.4GHz band that can travel longer distance.

Included in the package are a quick install guide and a card that has the extender’s default SSID and password as well as the URL to the web-based GUI printed on it.

D-Link DAP-1320 Wi-Fi Range Extender User Reviews

Excellent signal coverage. Easy setup. Small size for easy placement.

May require setup near router. Wi-Fi network changes may require a reset.

D-Link has a new wireless range extender that not only is one of the smallest you’ll find on the market, but is incredibly easy to set up and provides terrific coverage.

The D-Link DAP-1320 is one of the best wireless networking devices I’ve tested from D-Link, and among all of the extenders I’ve tested, it provided the best coverage. I was also impressed with how well it worked with another vendor’s equipment. I’m confident that this little device, which did an impressive job of extending my test Wi-Fi network deployed in a high-rise office building with hundreds of access points all around, will work extremely well for the average home user. D-Link Wireless Range Extender gets a 4.5 out of 5 star rating, and is PCMag’s Editors’ Choice for wireless range extenders.

User Reviews:

Playing an online FPS game through a busy wireless router is like entering a Corolla in the Indy 500: there just isn’t enough speed to win. If you face this unfortunate reality, D-Link wants to pimp your Wi-Fi ride with its new DGL-4300 wireless 108G gaming router. The device includes a GameFuel mode that puts data packets from games, teleconferencing, VoIP, and other high-bandwidth apps at the front of the wireless-transmission line, ushering them through the router faster than other data. The DGL-4300 also offers perks such as four Gigabit Ethernet ports; an adjustable, 5dBi high-gain antenna; WPA security; and an SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall. But at about $150, the device costs nearly twice as much as other Wi-Fi routers, such as the Linksys WRT54GS, which offer comparable performance when used solely for gameplay. So unless your router really is jammed with other traffic, hold off on the DGL-4300 until its next generation, which will no doubt support MIMO technology.

The slick, black DGL-4300 has seven blue status lights on the front that indicate when the power, WAN, WLAN, and four Gigabit LAN ports are working properly. The removable 5dBi antenna on the back edge bends and rotates 90 and 360 degrees, respectively, which helps you optimally position the antenna. In other efforts to help you position the router just right, D-Link ships the device with four handy rubber feet for lying flat, two snap-on rubber legs for vertical placement, and brackets for wall hanging.

The DGL-4300’s browser-based configuration tool is also slick. The tool’s smooth blue, orange, and black graphics and well-organized tabs are a nice touch. When you initially log in to the D-Link tool, it presents you with two helpful wizards for connecting to the Internet and specifying your wireless security settings. Or you can skip the wizards and alter all of the DGL-4300’s settings manually, determining features such as the device’s SSID, WEP and WPA security levels, acceptable MAC addresses, and DMZ assignments. Parents who want to limit their kids’ computing activities can also use the tool to block access to certain Web sites and games at specific times. At press time, D-Link also posted a new firmware upgrade with a few potentially intriguing features, such as Xbox Live certification, which allegedly helps to limit ICMP, and the ability to test virtual server settings via a LAN connection, which may help those attempting to establish their own game servers.

Pros: Reliable router with many firmware features.

Cons: little high priced, but it has come down some

Summary: This is the best router I have owned. Many other people have said this also about this router (in reviews posted on other sites).

It’s not fair for cnet to give this router a negative because its doesn’t have “mimo”. Especially considering since MIMO isn’t even a standard, and won’t be a standard for a long time.

The wireless range on this router is just as good or better than my Linksys WRT54G. And it has many more firmware options than the Linksys does.

The log file is detailed, and holds many entires (over 350 lines).

The many settings in the firmware, large log file, and reliability are what sold me on this router. The chipset inside is designed by Ubicom, and the chipset itself is designed specifically for QOS.

This router also has super bright blue LED lights. They will light up your room at night.

Pros: Setup is a snap, looks sharp, well built, packet prioritization in firmware for enhanced gaming.

Cons: A little on the expensive side, is a few years old.

Summary: I picked up one of these late last year to replace our aging Netgear wireless router. I’d finally picked up a laptop that could handle online gaming, but every time I’d try to play World of Warcraft with the Netgear, it would lock up and the entire home network would lose internet access. I did a lot of shopping and finally settled on this D-Link router which I ordered online. It’s a sharp looking piece of tech that doesn’t look out of place next to the television (since that’s where the cable hookup and cable modem are), and setup was flawless and quick. I tend to do a lot of downloading in the background when playing online games, so having the packet prioritization is awesome. This means that my gaming packets get traffic priority over the other packets on the network which results in nice, low pings.

I have an old Dell Laptop from a few years ago with wireless, and my new Thinkpad has an IBM wireless adpater and both of them have been able to connect to this router with no problems. My Nintendo DS Lite also was able to connect with hardly any effort at all. We have four desktops (connecting wired through two hubs), three laptops (connecting wirelessly), and two occasional Nintendo DSes connecting through this thing, and we’ve never had a problem. It gets the job done.
