4 out of 5 eggsSmall, simple, and solid, but with some limitations

Pros: Dead-simple setup. This is one of only a handful of devices I have ever owned that offered one-touch setup and actually delivered. Simple LED indicators make it clear what the status of the device is, and are not garishly bright or strobing in your face. Compact size gives it a tolerable appearance plugged into your wall. Functionality seems as-promised.

Cons: The range of the network extension is poor. I was hoping it would reach to my workshop, about 40' of air and one 2x4" wood-frame wall apart, but no dice. Other repeaters I have used in the same location can make this leap. Reception is mediocre, it really needs to be squarely within range of a network to see it.

Other Thoughts: On the whole, this device seems to represent a very good choice if you are looking to expand your network modestly-- think solving intermittent poor reception in a far bedroom, not so much getting outbuildings online or passing a signal through multiple walls. The device itself is small and unobtrusive. It would easily fit behind a couch, being little larger than a typical DC converter for any other electronic device, and it leaves the second outlet of the AC receptacle it is plugged into open. The range is not impressive as devices of this type go, which should be no shock, as the physical size of the device preludes the sort of significant antennas that really make a difference for such radio signals. The device's reception is also unexceptional, it really needs to be squarely in a network to work, and in a spot that actually has good signal to complete the setup process. I was able to get to set up in one spot and then move it to the spot I wanted it, which helped, but buyers should be aware that the range of this device is limited. I have nothing but compliments for the setup process. This is one of only a handful of devices I have ever owned that purportedly feature one-lick setup procedures that actually delivered (two clicks to be exact, one on my Netgear router, one on this device). That's a good thing, because included documentation was very sparse, and there is no included setup software whatsoever. But lo and behold click, click, wait, and suddenly there was a new network called "[yournetworkname]-ext." Simple as that! Administration, as with most network devices these days, is accomplished via a web client. Login information is included on a card with the device.

The airplay fucntionality is great if you happen to need this, but it's really a curious combination of functionality. Who happens to need an extender at the same point they need a network audio jack? As an EggXpert reviewer who did not seek out this product specifically, I could not think up an actual use for both functions of the device in the same place. That said, the audio functionality works wonderfully. iTunes sees it without a problem, and audio quality is totally satisfactory. If you are buying this device for one purpose or another, the other function is a nice bonus, at the very least.

Overall, I am pleased with this device. Assuming you are intending to use it to extend your network only modestly, it offers a nice, easy to set up, unobtrusive device. And if you happen to need a network audio jack in exactly that spot, you have a match made in heaven.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat when it works

Pros: - WPS setup
- Plugs into wall socket
- LEDs easy to understand
- Small and compact
- Easy to relocate

Cons: - Range is poor
- Doesn't always work
- Mobile devices don't automatically reconnect despite having credentials saved

Other Thoughts: I bought this from my local electronics store to extend the range of my Wifi in my house. The modem/router combo is setup in a poor area in one extreme side of the house. Thus I bought this to extend the Wifi range to the other side. Our house isn't that large, but the range is ridiculous on the range extender. When I tested it, it only went about 3-6 feet unobstructed. ALSO, the main reason I bought this was to extend the range of the Wifi to be used by my phone and laptops. Mobile devices don't automatically reconnect to the range extender and it annoys the HECK out of me. Even with the credentials saved. In order for the devices to reconnect I have to restart the range extended by unplugging it and replugging it. I suppose the only way to have continuous access to the range extender is to be connected to it 24/7.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy setup

Pros: Easy setup even without WPS

Cons: The setup instructions included represented some older version of the firmware. But the new version was so clear it didn't matter.

Other Thoughts: If you can't use WPS, you just plug it in and connect to it via WiFi. It has a preconfigured SSID and password. Then you tell it what you want its new SSID and password to be, and the SSID and password of the device you want to repeat. It reboots, and you're in business.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

Pros: Small
Easy to install
Fast

Cons: Not free
Lacks ability to grant wishes

Other Thoughts: I don't see what any negativity about this device is. I have a gaming router by the same company and I foud that if you follow the directions it was very easy to install

A few thoughts

On initial set up plug it in a place near the main router. It needs a good signal to set up properly. You can move it to where you want later but it still needs a signal there from the original router too. Remember it is a repeater!

I suggest setting it up with the same password as the main source and check the box for ghat on setup as well. It will make it seamless with use and no changing of passwords. Thus will make the devices think it is just one big network named the same as the original network.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable, simple and reliable wireless extender

Pros: - Setup is very simple and takes less than a minute
- Convenience factor, plug in anywhere at an power outlet and extend your existing home wireless signal, can’t get simpler than that
- Once configured you can move it from one outlet to another and within a minute your signal is back up
- Unit is IEEE 802.11N/G compliant
- Price is fairly affordable for a N300 based wireless extender
- What is great about this extender is that you make use of your current wireless network, unlike other extenders where you have to buy two units, one that connects via Ethernet to your router and the other via power circuit. This units picks up the wireless signal and give you additional coverage where your existing router has poor reach.
-
- You can configure the unit via the internet, in the box is a card with default configuration details, so you can log in and change it if you’d like.
- Signal was stable and strong during tests below
- Signal strength over distance was equal to power line extender I have in place.
- I was really impressed with the connection speeds I got from this $50 extender. Below are some results, I used my Android tablet to compare the speeds from my router vs the DAP-1320 vs a power line connected Wireless extender from Cisco that cost more than the DAP-1320. Both the Cisco unit and the D-Link was about 25 feet away from the router and I was running the test at equal distance from the extender’s signals.

Connected directly to Router:
1. Ping - 20/25/17 ms
2. Download – 17.67/19.85/21.24 Mbps
3. Upload – 4.03/5.88/5.92 Mbps
Connected to Cisco wireless extender
1. Ping – 23/23/30 ms
2. Download – 6.9/5.61/6.54 Mbps
3. Upload – 5.79/5.93/5.54 Mbps
Connected to DAP-1320
1. Ping – 24/26/19 ms
2. Download – 7.85/6.64/7.71 Mbps
3. Upload – 5.19/5.74/5.62 Mbps

Cons: - Only extends wireless signal and it has no ports to connect devices via Ethernet
- Does not support 802.11ac, it is a new wireless protocol so I expect the updates will be compliant
- D-Link GUI interface is pretty old and needs a makeover

Other Thoughts: Newegg box arrived within two days and was packaged well as always.
The D-Link DAP1320 retail box on the front displays a picture of the unit and clearly lets the prospective buyer know you are getting a Wireless Range Extender.
On the back of the box it shows you how the extender works, it connects with your existing wireless network and extends the range of your home wireless network.
On the right side of the box it shows how you can in three easy steps set up the extender by using a push button to connect to your existing wireless router.
The retail box contains the DAP-1320 extender unit, a quick reference guide, D-Link GPL Code Statement and a Wi-Fi Configuration note with SSID name, password and web browser configuration URL.
Unpacking the DAP-1320 you will notice it is quite small, about an inch and a half square. It has the wireless sync button on the right hand side and a LED on the front.
In the box you will also find a credit card sixe white card with the default configuring details such as SSID Name, password and web browser link if you want to configure it via internet.

Set up is very straight forward and outlined below:
- Plug in the DAP-1320 into the wall outlet and verify if the power LED has turned from red to blinking amber
- Now push your WPS button on your wireless router
- Press and hold the W{PS button on the DAP-1320 until the light starts blinking green, this takes a minute or two. Once the connection is successful the LED will be a solid green.
- If your router does not have a WPS button use the web browser setup section to connect your DAP-1320 using your PC.
- Now you can connect mobile devices to the DAP-1320 using the SSID and password provided on the card that came in the box
- Simple as that

2 out of 5 eggsSubpar perfermance for the buck

Pros: Price- I got this on sale for $35 at local B&M store
Setup- It was pretty easy to set up, either with WPS or manually set it up. Just input your wifi settings and bam you get wifi repeated..... for about 10 mins or less.

Cons: Signal/Range is pretty poor. I live in a 2 story house. Both the main router is on the first floor but due to a doodoo-load of walls. The signal is really weak throughout the first floor. Thus this DLINK was suppose to remedy that problem. Did it work? err kinda for like 10 mins then it drop connection., No WIFI/internet access if you're connected to the DLINK.

Yes the DLINK is about 15 ft away from the Main Router, inside my room. Didnt increase the range too much, thus its going back to the store.

Other Thoughts: Would I recommend this product? Yes if you live in a place with no walls. Then it will work or not. But if you got walls and rooms and doors. Then probably not. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend at all.

I had my foscam connected to the DLINK and my laptop as well. I was monitoring the foscam with my PC and monitoring the DLINK with my laptop.
Its just not a good product for me anyways. Drop connections arent worth the time. I need constant powah!!!

4 out of 5 eggseggxpert review

Pros: well to start off with its small and very portable the range on the d-link is decent . I got it to go about 50 feet through 2 walls. I live in a trailer park and without the extender I get 2 bars on my laptop when its just hooked to my wifi but when I hooked it up to the range extender I get 4 bars from my wifi about 50 feet or 60 feet from my front porch so that's not bad especially for my cell phone it will save on my data plan simply because I use my data mostly when i'm at home and hooked to wifi. some other pro are the software is fairly simple to set up and I like that it shows you the signal from the router and extender and the device and it shows you if they are connected and their signal strength. when its plugged in to the wall it looks almost non existant because its the same color as the wall socket and it only has one light that shows red for on and green for connected. I would recommend this product if you need just a little more range such as a second story or to walk around your yard with a tablet for example.

Cons: there are a few things. the packaging was not very good it was basically a cheap box inside another cheap box it came with a warranty card a couple stickers with the needed information like a password and model ...it does not come with a disk you have to go online and download it .I do wish It had a disk for ease of use . it reset my router one time and that was a pain because it reset the security password and all settings for my router but to be honest that might have been my router but other than that it worked as described

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent performer

Pros: • Very compact in size
• Eliminates cable clutter, though at a price premium. Most modern homes have electrical outlets all over the place, so you’ll have the ability to place the 1320 in myriad locations, without having to worry about being close to a cable outlet – definitely worth the extra cost for me
• Just slightly warm to the touch after ten days of continuous use
• One simple LED to understand – it’s either connected, or it isn't – all you need for what it is
• WPS setup was very easy
• Firmware update easy to perform
• Browser setup works fairly well (not sure about the other reviews that claim the included D-Link address didn't work – was just fine for me, though I needed to use a blank password to get in, as opposed to the one included on the sticker)
• Extends the range of our primary router (Asus RT-N65U) into our back yard
• extends coverage to all areas of our 2400 SF home, including the garage
• Can daisy chain multiple units together to create a veritable web of coverage
• Seems to be the ideal solution for multi-device coverage in our downstairs living room

Cons: • Packaging damaged in shipping (was packed in a padded envelope that was pierced in transit, leaving the one side of the D-Link packaging crumpled). Not a mark on the actual device, though
• Some would call it expensive, mentioning that you could buy a wireless router with more features for the same cost. Trade-off in cost vs. convenience. If you are able to place another router/repeater close to a cable outlet, then I don’t think this device is for you. Really no point
• Considering that this is currently rated as a 3-star device on this review thread, I would like to see D-Link respond with tech help to some of these reviews. In 26 reviews (at the time of me submitting this one) there are exactly ZERO responses from D-Link. Doesn't exactly inspire trust
• Blocks part of the outlet above/below in a standard two socket outlet. We have it currently located in an area that will most likely have Christmas lights/decorations, come December. We’ll just use a power strip up there, but that will involve removing the 1320 from the socket, which means setting it up again. Small potatoes, but notable

Other Thoughts: I tested the 1320 with two different routers (Asus RT-N65U and a TP-Link WDR-4300) and had solid results with both. Our house has the network gear upstairs in the bonus room, with all other rooms on the ground floor. Our primary router is the Asus RT-N65U, and while it has excellent range and signal strength, the wall along our staircase has us pulling 3 bars of signal strength on the Sharp 50” mounted above our fireplace. On the outside wall of that staircase (the side facing the living room) is an electrical outlet pointing out towards our living room. It’s located up high on one of those tall spaces where people put their seasonal decorations (for lack of a better description). I figured this would be an ideal spot to test the 1320, being that it would be pointing in the area of our TV (mounted about 5 ft. off the ground) – and I was exactly right. Signal strength was a constant five bars, and that was with four smart phones tracking fantasy football scores, while streaming some random movie during halftime of some Sunday football action.

As good as it was paired with the Asus, I was really curious to see if it would make the TP-Link any better. We’ve had poor range results with that router, regardless of what channel we had set it to, and had pretty much given up on it as a device that could serve our needs. Enter the 1320 – and that changed everything. Problems connecting our Sharp 50” were now resolved, and while the signal strength wasn’t nearly as strong as what we were seeing with the Asus – it was still plenty good for stable Netflix streaming, and actually boosted the routers signal in the further areas of our home. While the TP-Link never dropped a connection, its speeds at range were so slow, that it rendered the device next to useless. Really seemed to be affected by having a couple of walls between it and the main floor living space. The 1320 erased that problem quite nicely.

After testing the 1320 in multiple outlets around the house, I plugged it into the one looking down into our living room, and let it run for ten days before I submitted this review. We never dropped a connection, and honestly, stopped even thinking about it after a couple days. It did what technology is supposed to do – perform the task without me having to fiddle/tweak/coerce/whatever.

Speeds were solid in all areas of our home. I used an Android bandwidth testing app on my phone in just about every spot you could think of in a house, and the results were solid.

One of the cooler benefits of the 1320 is its unassuming size and styling. My wife does not like “computer stuff” all over her house. She loved how it was small, and that you just plug it into an outlet and forget about it.

For me, the expense is well-worth the clean installation, let alone the obvious benefits we’re getting from its functionality. This will be staying in use for the foreseeable future – highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Device

Pros: This thing is great, you can effortlessly add around 75ft!! to the range of your wifi.
WPS (wireless protected setup) works seamlessly. No troubleshooting required. Just hit the WPS button on your router, then the one on the range extender.
Browser based configuration utility is neat, well organized and simultaneously provides easy to use setup wizards that walk novice users through setup while still providing advanced options for total configuration control and network personalization.
It's got 2 internal antennas for a strong, reliable and overall robust wireless signal.
Documentation: quick setup guide and owner's manual are both well organized, useful, easy to understand and provide more than enough information to help you get your home network operating at peak efficiency.

Cons: It doesn't support 802.11ac, the newest wireless networking standard. 802.11ac is MUCH faster than 802.11n. GBPS for ac vs MbPS for n.
It also doesn't support the 5GHz spectrum, even for 802.11n networks. So you're left with 802.11n on 2.4Ghz. There's more signal interference on 2.4Ghz than 5Ghz just because so many devices use the 2.4Ghz spectrum.
IT does run a little slower than connecting directly to your router, but it's not by much. I never experienced more than a .5MBPS drop in speed. This isn't a fault in the device; it's simply the reality of network repeaters. (range extenders). It is however relevant information; so that's why I took no stars away.

Other Thoughts: Dlink is one of the best networking companies out there. Their browser based interface is highly effective. It's neat, clean, easy to use all while providing advanced configuration options for total control over your home network.
If you have areas of your home, or work, or a friends house, or wherever, that you need wifi but the signal doesn't reach now, just plug this in, use the WPS function to connect and in <2 minutes you'll have very strong signal where no signal existed before.
This is a fantastic product and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
