The D-Link DAP-1360 Wireless N Access Point connects to a broadband modem enabling you to wirelessly share your Internet connection. It is a draft 802.11n compliant device that delivers up to 14x faster speeds* and 6x farther range* than 802.11g while retaining backward compatibility with 802.11g and 802.11b devices. Enjoy surfing the web, checking e-mail, and chatting with family and friends online at faster speeds on your wireless network 

The DAP-1360 provides 64/128-bit WEP encryption and WPA/WPA2 security to protect your network and wireless data. This device also supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to quickly and securely setup a wireless network. In addition, the access point features MAC address filtering and a disable SSID broadcast function to limit outsiders’ access to your home and office network. 

The DAP-1360 can be configured to operate in seven different modes as needed. The Access Point mode allows the device to act as a central hub for wireless users. The Wireless Client mode is available to enable the DAP-1360 to connect to another access point. There is a Bridge mode to join two wired networks (LANs) together and a Bridge with AP mode so the device can act as a wireless hub and a bridge at the same time. The Repeater mode extends wireless coverage to cover all “dead” spots. A WISP Client Router mode allows wireless Internet service subscribers to share Internet connection with home/office Ethernet-enabled computers without the need for an extra router. Finally, the device can act as a WISP Repeater to let WISP subscribers share Internet connection with wired and wireless computers without any extra routers. 

With D-Link Setup Wizard, you can set up your wireless network in minutes. It configures your DAP-1360’s operating mode and makes it easy to add new wireless devices onto the network. Create a simple wireless network for your home and office quickly and easily with the DAP-1360. 

The DAP-1360 includes a built-in schedule function that turns the wireless network off when not in use. This feature reduces power consumption and ultimately saves costs. 

* Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11g and draft 802.11n specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, buildings materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link relative performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link draft 802.11n devices.

It came in the mail yesterday and I had it up and running in about 15 mins. So installation gets 5 stars. And it definitely works as an extender as I am now getting full signal strength upstairs in my bedroom while the router is in the far corner of the basement. All appeared to be good until I started to do more than surf the internet. I couldn't hold a connection to my company's VPN and I kept losing connection when I tried to download podcasts to itunes. I unplugged it and I haven't seen ... the problem since, so it has to be the extender causing the issue. It not only causes a problem with my laptop upstairs, but any computer on the network. The D-Link forum has several complaints with the same issue, but D-link has yet to respond to these complaints. The closest I saw to a recommended fix was in their Knowledgebase - they recommended changing the "Preamble" setting to "short" (default is "long") for busy networks or for downloading large files.

I recently purchased an iPad and was having some connection troubles in my upstairs bedroom. My main router, a D-Link gaming router, sits downstairs about as far away as possible, so I went looking for a device that would extend my network. At first I was looking at buying another wireless router for upstairs and would then just turn off DHCP and set it to be an access node, but then found this little guy and put it upstairs, but about halfway away from my main router.PROS:- Pretty simple setu ... p.- Worked as expected on the first try! (WPA-2 worked no problem.)- I get a strong connection now to my downstairs router with my iPad and other wireless devices upstairs.CONS:- Lack of polish in the interface. One screen in the web interface has some text in Spanish, and there's a variety of grammar/spelling mistakes. More >

I tried to use this is a range extender and failed miserably. Although I am adept at configuring cabled and wireless routers, this one was a stumper. Almost no useful online help. Considering that my router is D-Link (DIR-655) I expected this to work but it does not.I have returned this item to Amazon (simple and smooth), bought instead a D-Link DIR-628 wireless router, configured it as an Access Point (much better documented, basically disable DHCP and PnP) and I got my range extended! You ... could do this if you have a couple of wired spots where you could place this Access Point. In my case I has a wired spot on the second floor where I connected the second router (DIR 628) and I now get excellent Wi-Fi connectivity for the iPhone, iPad and Laptops used upstairs.So two D-Link products, one designed to extend the range and, for me, was a waste of time (I would have given it zero stars if I could).
