The D-Link DAP-1320 is a network range extender for your home wireless Wi-Fi network. We have a long home from front to back and we have only one FIOS port which is fine since all our devices are wireless including our printer and game consoles.
But sometimes we can only use our phone in the front of our house since our network has to fight through walls and a garage. This wireless range extender was perfect to extend our network out front of the house and street. Wi-Fi network range extenders are great for basements, upstairs rooms, outdoor back patios, and many other areas.
It was fairly easy to connect since we currently have a D-Link router but work just fine with all other brands of routers wit N-wireless capability. I just plugged it in. Initially the red light flashes as it sets up then begins to flash green when ready to connect to a router.
The next step was pushing the WPS button on our router and the WPS button on the DAP-1320.
It continued flashing and stayed a solid green when it was connected. It then created a new network called ‘dlink-7C4E’ and our network is ‘dlink.’ Provided with the DAP-1320 is a network card with a preset password for connecting which establishes a secure and safe network which is important to reduce people using your network and possible getting into your computers.
I walked out front and down the street after setup to see how the networks reach and lost the ‘dlink’ network and still had my extended range ‘dlink-7C4E” network! Along with picking up a whole new set of networks.
The D-Link DAP-1320 Wireless Range Extender works with most wireless N devices and brands and provides up to 300Mbps rates.
