I don't see much in home model DAPs for Brazil. More Business class though.  :-\

Shame the DAP-1525 isn't available.  :-\

I personally don't think there is an issue with the DAP in itself, more like there is a signal to signal issue between the Arris modems WiFi and the DAP. Think of it like this, garbage in, garbage out. I think the Arris modems WiFi signal isn't good and the DAP is attempting to deal with it and probably most of time can't. Specially if it has to deal with a bad signal over a great distance. It's going to fail and thats not the DAPs fault persae.

I think you need to install a cleaner and better signal at the modem point. Turn OFF the modems WiFi and install a DAP, could be any DLink model DAP available in your region. I'll have a look and see that DLink has for your region.
Set up would look like this:
Arris Modem(WIFI Shut OFF)><Wired to a new WiFi AP>Better wireless signal distance between(5-10Meter max)<DAP-1360 bridged to the new AP><PC Wired LAN cable to the back of the DAP-1360

I recommend that you don't buy a "Router" for the Arris and you'll encounter more problems if you do, Please review:
Arris Cable Modems and External Routers
By the looks of your picture you have phone service as well on the Arris? If so then you'll need to keep the Arris modem as you main host router. However this doesn't or should prevent you from shutting off the Arris WiFi and installing better WiFi as an AP next to the Arris Modem. Then you should be able to bridge the 1360 to the new AP.

Also be sure to shut off any 3rd party security SW that might prevent access to the DAPs web page, or ensure that "exceptions" are added if needed to the SW configuration to allow access.


Sorry, router for me means the wireless device :P.

Do you think I should buy a DIR-615 or any AP? I had a DIR-524 and it was great.

About the signal problem, I think it's not. DAP gets 48-54% signal, and when it fails, it really fails, it takes a decade to make it work again, and as many people have this problem, I still think It's DAP fault.

Do you think I should buy a router (like DIR-524) and use ARRIS as bridge or an AP?
thanks

Well if you can bridge the Arris, you'll need to check with Arris or your ISP service if this can be done. It's preferred to Bridge any modem/router if possible if your going to use an external router. If you can do this to the Arris, then by all means, the DIR-615 is a good router to use as the main host router.

If you think the DAP-1360 is bad, I would recommend that you ask D-Link to RMA it as soon as possible. It will be up to you on when this happens though. I recommend testing the DIR-615 if possible and then after that, if the DAP still does not work well, then you'll know and you can tell even after installing the 615, the DAP still fails and to RMA it. I would recommend testing it on a different PC to be sure that the problem follows, if this is possible, say at a family or friends place.

However If you can't bridge the Arris modem at all, my original suggestion of letting be your main host router, shutting OFF the AP and installing a NEW wired AP at the modem point should resolve this. If your not confident in the DAP-1360, you could install the DIR-615 as a wired AP at the modem point using this:
Bridge Mode vs Relay vs Acess Point (AP) / Routers vs Dedicated Acess Points (AP)

Just be aware that the 615 can't perform any bridging operations like the DAP does so it can only work as the wired AP if you choose to go this route.

Yes, a Router is different from a wireless device. We like to keep it differentiated and specific as possible so everyone is clear on what problems are and don't get confused.  ::)

I have this router and if you can get the modem into bridge mode, this router would be great. I love this router, rock solid and work well.
http://www.dlink.com.br/produtos-detalhes/items/dir-857.html

I also think you need to get a wire from the modem side to where your PC is at and maybe skip trying to go wireless or trying to bridge that PC over this distance.

Holy crap! A DIR-857 is R$ 750 - that's Brazil's minimum salary!

I will go for the DIR-615 I guess, or a TP-Link "wireless device".

I would love to have the PC wired, but as I said, I live in an apartment that's 13 years old, so It doesn't has the cables through the wall, cause we used internet from the telephone jack.
As it can only be installed on the living room, I will need to keep using wireless.

In my sister's house that is veeeeeeeeeeeery big, she uses many APs and it works great. If I remember, there are 8 Apple Airport APs. So I think there's no problem! :)

Thanks for the help FurryNutz, and If you can contact D-Link (seriously), tell them to stop selling DAP-1360 A/B. Seriously. MANY people have this problem

Understand. See if you can get the DAP RMAd.

Let us know how the 615 turns out to work. I hope it works well as a main host router or a Wired AP.

I understand about the ability to run cables in a apt building.
I use this in my house to help with wiring:

Keep us posted on how it goes.

Good Luck

Yeah, I'd love to do that, but sadly I'm not even 16 y/o, and my mother didn't even consider the possibility! haha. If I lived alone there wouldn't be any problems with that
thanks for the help man!

Well, it's really annoying to turn on the PC and have no connection.
Windows - Problems found
"Local Area Connection does not have a valid IP config"



Is it something related to DHCP?
Thanks

Is there anyway to use it as a repeater and client?
If there is, am I going to lose strength?

I Think you can use the 1360 as a repeater. I'm not sure if the LAN ports in back are operational however I presume they are in repeater mode.

Ya, the Windows network status means that your PC has not received an IP address from the main host router thru the 1360.
I really would recommend this:
Set up would look like this:
Arris Modem(WIFI Shut OFF on Arris Modem)><Wired to a new WiFi>Better wireless signal distance between(5-10Meter max)<DAP-1360 bridged/Repeater mode to the new AP><PC Wired LAN cable to the back of the DAP-1360.

I think you need to close the distance between the main host wireless and the 1360 as well.

Well, I'm using repeater mode for 10 mins and it's working great.
Bought 2 15dBi antennas and am using them, but they are too heavy ! hahah

Full bar on the iPhone, but.. the down speed sucks on the iPhone. but NP.
I had to reset the router, so I'm kinda worried of getting the probleem again

Too good to be true.



But this time I could correct it on Windows.
