Title: Canīt see the Wifi signal!!
Post by: Inaki on May 01, 2014, 04:02:45 AM
Dear All,

I have just purchased my first DAP 1320 N300 unit.??

Have connected it to mains but I donīt see in any of my devices the Wifi signal.

Could the unit be faulty??

I have also reseted it according to manual just in case but no no.

Any hints before I take it back to the shop to get a new one?

many thanks

What mode are you using the DAP in? AP mode?

DAP Placement
Forum User - "Well I feel really dumb. After moving the router away from other electronic devices my speeds are back to normal. Just a heads up for anyone experiencing slow speeds, you might want to move it away from other electronics and see if that helps."
3-6' feet minimum safe distance between devices.
Placement on main level floor and central in the building is preferred. Not in basements as building materials could interfere or hinder good signal propagation.
