4 out of 5 eggsGreat for basic use

Pros: Solid construction, good signal range

Cons: Clunky/slow management interface

Other Thoughts: I'm only using this as a basic AP in my house, so I can't comment on the viability of this AP in a commercial setting, but I'm very happy with how it has performed so far. Located in my basement (as high as possible) I get near perfect signal in my office on the second floor, and still can connect from my backyard. I don't have to mess with the configuration very often, but one time I did have to reboot the AP after the interface basically stopped responding. When it does work, it tends to be a little slow; but patience is a virtue, right?

5 out of 5 eggsa real wireless access point

Pros: Very nice commerical solution for building to building wireless acess points. also great for inside buildings that cause heartache for the home wireless routers

Cons: a little pricey but still worth the money.

3 out of 5 eggsso so

Pros: Solid construction, easy to configure, reasonable price for an entry level business class AP

Cons: Wireless signal weak

Other Thoughts: I'd used one of these before for a cost sensitive customer and they were very happy with it. So when a small school needed to connect two offices 200' from each other, I suggested these. I configured them as WDS no problem, then took one to the office and they were out of range. I took a network analyzer and measured the wireless signal and the Verizon modem/router w/built in wireless (with no external antenna) had a stronger signal and better range!!! Verizon was WEP, I had set these to WPA2 which can cut down on range and it did not help, the Verizon modem was still stronger. I had to send them back :(.

2 out of 5 eggsSo Long D-Link....

Pros: Powerful Signal, supports Virtual Access Points. While using this at home, I could get a better signal to my own network at home than a neighbors, while located inside that said neighbors house. Good while it lasted. Now I'm $180 out with another problem to solve (buy).

Cons: Became unreliable almost overnight after 6 months. Now I have to do daily reboots. The unit won't pass along DHCP information from another router. Log shows units are associating, but DHCP isn't being forwarded. Even upgraded to latest firmware. As this problem came on it's own, and wasn't the result of tweaking any settings, I am afraid the unit's memory goes bad after a period of time.

Other Thoughts: D-Link in my eyes is a company that buys other's manufactured equipment, and brands it as their own. They don't do ground up hardware builds, and therefore make no progression overtime in creating more reliable product. Each new product they come out with comes from a different supplier in China... with no experience to back their newly discovered product from a newly discovered partner, we're left to become another Quality Assurance statistic, piling up their RMA tally. Honestly the only D-Link product I've ever been happy with of theirs is the DGS-2208 and DGS-2205.

This is the last D-Link I will own.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent AP

Pros: Does everything and more a managed access point should do. The included wall mount is a bonus.

Cons: none really - I kind of forget about it because I never have to do anything to it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for small business

Pros: Solid, very good signal.

Cons: Like the previous poster "N/A" said, the VLAN features don't work OOB. But he's not really understanding of VLANs. Of course you need to set up VLAN somewhere else (like a switch) -- there's only one port on a wireless AP! You connect it to a switch or router, that's where you set up the VLAN IDs.

Other Thoughts: "N/A", this product is an Access Point. You keep calling it a router. It's not doing any routing. An AP connects you to a network, wirelessly. It is not routing or providing NAT for that matter.

The differences can be amorphous (for example a wireless router is a combination of a router and a wireless AP, or on a wireless router you can turn routing off and just use it as an AP, etc.). And don't get me going about bridges.

5 out of 5 eggsEggcelent!

Pros: Very Powerful. Supports VLAN's, multiple Virtual SSID stations, PoE. This unit is reliable, and powerful. It feels solid, and can be wall mounted if desired with supplied mounting bracket.

This unit is so powerful, that I can leave my house with my iPhone 4, go to my neighbors house, and still get a stronger signal to my own connection, than my neighbors when being at their house. No joke.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's unfortunate other people gave this such a poor rating for reasons such as "lack of documentation". I was able to get and download all the documentation right on D-Link's website. The documentation is very thorough. Also, to give it just one star for this, is a very poor rating, and poor logic in the decision to give it that rating. If the unit performs well, and is reliable, just because you didn't get a printed manual isn't a reason to deduct all stars. The unit still works great, so if anything you should just deduct one star.

5 out of 5 eggsShort and Sweet!!! Hooray for Good Products!!!

Pros: Pros? This is one of the easiest devices to setup ever! It was literally plug and play! The only thing I had to change was my routers subnet (instead of using the private .1.1 range, I set it to .0.1 people, nothing huge) to DLink's, and that's just because I wanted to.

This device and DLink continue to surprise me. They are truly making great products. More than I can say for some other companies out there (they know who they are)... who have been skimping out the average consumer.

Cons: Don't get discouraged by all the bad ratings!

If I wouldn't have used my gut instinct and previous experience with DLinks products, I would have missed out on a great opportunity! Don't double think, just add to the cart and buy. It worked great for me!

Oh and the only con is that I don't have more space or buildings to connect it to, I'd really like to hook more than one of them up.... Oh well...

Other Thoughts: F.Y.I. - My setup includes a wireless modem/router, an 8port Cisco PoE switch (they sell it on newegg), and this access point. At first I was going to switch on the router's wireless along with this one. But I wanted to test the power of this bad boy first, so I powered it on and disabled the wireless on the modem/router and guess what, this thing reaches all the way from the second floor to the first and covers both floors of the warehouse with 100% signal! It truly surprised me! That's my 2 cents...

1 out of 5 eggsBeware! Something you should know before you buy this!!

Pros: This router is durable and functions properly with no faults. This is a good router for the NORMAL user.

Cons: FALSE ADVERTISING ALERT!!! Beware of the Multi-SSID advertisement. yes it is true that this router has Multi-SSID functionality and is VLAN capable, BUT in order to actually use those functions, your gateway network upstream (Wired Router, Switches) MUST have VLAN TAGGING and VID support as well.

Our company had just bought this router to set up for another company for this purpose:

SSID 1 = Primary Network For the Admins with ability to see everyone and every device on the network.
SSID 2 = Public Network for those with smartphones and laptop computers who want to access the internet but are limited to accessing the internet ONLY. These users cannot see or access the network.

After many phone calls and research, we found out that this router alone cannot tag the ip address and cannot isolate the multi-ssid 2 from the network. Also, this router alone cannot hand out ip addresses under a different subnet.

The whole system UPSTREAM from the router MUST be VLAN compatible.

Other Thoughts: Be careful and do some research into this product before you buy it, do not be led into false advertisement.

Now as a side not, i was able to "hide" the network and devices from ALL wireless devices that are connected to this Access Point. This can be done by going to the partition settings inside the router and unchecking the only 2 boxes there. However, with further testing of this setting, all this does is "hides" the network. I was still able to access the devices by going to the run prompt (WINKEY + R) and typing the ip addresses of the devices "\\192.168.x.x" or "\\10.x.x.x".

The only way the VLAN will work is if the devices upstream from the router supports VLAN tagging, and according to the D'Link Tech support, the only series of wired routers that support the VLAN tagging is the DFL series, which can get quite expensive.

Also, if you are planning or already have a switch between your wired and wireless router, the the switch MUST be VLAN compatible as well.
