Title: DAP-1320 Question
Post by: pdxer on December 17, 2012, 08:26:50 AM
Has anyone had any experience with this range extender? Also, if it is configured with the browser interface is the WPS disabled.

This is a fairly new product. Not a lot of users yet. I don't see any options to actually disable WPS like DIR series routers do. I would presume WPS is handle based on the mode it's using, AP or Repeater and handled internally by what the user select. WPS is not effected by the browser interface. The Manual is fairly non-descriptive on how WPS is handled. Just basic operation and use for WPS. If your looking for more specific information, I would contact DLink support, level 2 or higher and inquire about WPS and what modes it operates in. There maybe other Dlink models that can do what your needs are.

WPS issues have been addressed by all router Mfrs regarding the brute force problem that was brought to everyones attention last year. WPS is not safe to use again. Most people either don't use it or just disable it. The 1320 maybe not be one of these units that has a WPS UI to disable it completely as might be handled automatically depending on what mode the unit is running in. If you live in a rural or small neighborhood community, theres not a big concern for people hacking in to others WiFi or Internet. Possibly more concern might be in bigger metro city areas with higher population and lots of people around.

Let us know what the say.
