I recently purchased a DAP-1360 range extender. When it is plugged in, laptops in the vicinity show excellent (strong) signals and internet connectivity is great -- for a while. Every couple miniutes or so (sometimes more frequently), the laptops show a dropped connection. After 10 or 15 seconds, the connection comes back (and is again strong/fast). If I unplug the DAP-1360, I have no problems whatsoever -- no dropped connections.
(You might wonder why I am using the extender if everything works fine without it. In fact, I'm trying to get another device, further away from my regular access point to work and believe I need the extender. However, both it, and the laptops that are right next to the extender get dropped connections when the extender is enabled).
Should I return the unit? I am using a linksys access point, but the saleperson assured me that the D-Link range extender should work fine with the linksys wireless access point.
