Can DAP-1522 act as wireless/repeater brigde
« on: November 27, 2008, 10:09:26 AM »

Hello

Would wondering if we can use DAP-1522 as wireless bridge, what I meant that we can connect to network/internet throught DAP-1522 by wifi (known that any devices connect throught LAN port should be)

Many Thanks

There are 2 modes of operation:
  • Access Point (AP) Allows wifi devices to use the DAP-1522 to connect to your wired network 
  • Bridge Allows wired devices to connect to your wifi network through the DAP-1522

There is a 3 position switch on the unit to switch between these modes (the third position is auto which makes the decision between access point and bridge automatically based on if it can see a DHCP server.

With a pair of DAP-1522 (one as AP, one as bridge) it is possible to extend your wired network to (say) another building (in wireless range) without needing any wires between the 2. (And if you already have a wireless router, you'll only need 1 DAP-1522 running as a bridge).

I do not think it will acts as a wireless to wireless repeater (ie range extender).
