Title: DAP 1360
Post by: yuditst on February 19, 2014, 06:11:23 PM
Hoping someone can help me.  I am hardware illiterate.  My DAP 1360 kept losing signal/download speed.  So I thought I'd try to reset it.  I ended up changing it from repeater to access point mode and that is not what I wanted.  Now I can't get back to change it to repeater mode.  The is showing as a connection issue.  
Can someone please in simple laymans terms help me.  Or should I just chuck both the router and extender and start from scratch?

You will need to connect the DAP-1360 to your computer using an Ethernet cable (not wireless).

Once you connect them, you then need to login to the DAP-1360 router. Copy/paste this link  http://dlinkap/  into your browsers web address bar and press Enter.

The Dlink Login web page will display and show 'Admin' in the Login. As there is no password, click on Login button.

A new webpage will display. Click on WIRELESS SETUP (left side).
The Wireless Network Settings will display. In the first window of settings, find "Wireless Mode:" and click on the down arrow. A list of different modes will display.
Select the Mode you want "Repeater".

Once you have selected the Mode, go to the area above and click on Save Settings. The router will take about 30 seconds to save the new settings and a will then reboot itself. Disconnect the Ethernet cable and you should be able to connect via wireless.

Hope that helps.

yuditst, do not forget, download speed is reduced if using the unit as a repeater. Low signal or loss of signal, try and reposition the repeater for better wireless connection of the unit you are "repeating".

You could also (if possible) change the antennas on both units to 5dbi or something like that. It will give you better quality of the connection. And might give you a speed boost as well, as the low signal does give you bad speeds, regardless of using is as a repeater.

If you are on H/W.C (Rev.C) do not forget to upgrade to v3.04 of firmware if you are on v3.02 for better stable connection.

Okay - here's my next question/problem.  I have a dell hybrid.  It appears that there is only one input jack.  So how to I connect the internet and the extender to the computer if there aren't enough jacks?  When I connect the extender to the computer I lose the internet connection. 
Did not realize I upgraded my computer after I purchased the extender.

I'm not getting a signal towards the back of my house.  Are there any other options that would work as an extender for my DIR 601?

You don't need to be connected to the internet to make the change from Access Point to Repeater mode. Just use the connection (as explained Post #2 above) to connect the DAP-1360 to your Dell Hybrid and make the mode change. Then go back to the setup you had for connecting to the internet via wireless.

It appears that I'm having problems connecting to the dlinkap website without the extender being plugged in AND being connected to the internet.  There doesn't appear to be a way around this.  Do I need to mention that I have a desktop that's not set up for wifi??

Your not connecting to the Dlinkap website, your only logging in to the DAP-1360 internal settings.

I would suggest starting all over again like when you first bought the device. Follow the instructions and set up your wireless settings again in the DAP-1360. Use the internal "Launch Wireless Setup Wizard" create your connection.
