Noticed you posted a link: DIR-880L on sale.  I truly enjoy the use and the performance of my DIR-880 router, i.e., well-pleased with it.  I've been thinking of perhaps getting a range extender for inside of the garage in order to cover the backyard when I am outdoors in the summertime doing the  yard work.  My DIR-880L is in the basement and covers the full inside of the house (upstairs) surprisingly very well.  Somewhat wish that the DIR-880L had a Extender mode since that would seal the deal and I'd save up some cash for another one.  I like the price of the D-Link DAP-1650 Extender which I'd piggyback the 5GHz WiFi from the DIR-880L and Extend only the 2.4GHz band - seems the most efficient way of doing it for me especially since my budget phone only uses Wireless-N on 2.4GHz.  I also noticed that TP-Link has a couple of desktop Extenders but I am not loyal to them.  I image some people mistakenly confuse D-Link and TP-link as being the same company but to the best of my knowledge they're not part of the same entity.  Anyways, I do wonder whether a D-link DAP-1650 in the garage would blanket the backyard with a reliable connection.  I don't know whether the DAP-1650 is s a high-power Extender or not.  It seems to get good reviews but I do have application specific concerns insofar as it's range (power output), etc.

Ya, I've been happy with my 880L over all and like the flexibility of Bridge mode. I took it with me on a trip last year to my families place and used it as a bridge fro xbox gaming connected to a DIR-868L.

TP-Link and D-Link are not related.  ::)

I think the DAP-1650 will be good. Javalaywer whom has left the forums got one a while back and connected it to his DIR-868L and said he saw good performances. I don't remember what mode he had it in thought.  :-[

I know that the DIR-885L has extender mode and I think the DIR-879 does. I'll have to check again. I think the 1650 would be best suited for your needs though.

Furry, what's your opinion of the DAP-1665 in comparison of the DAP-1650 ? ? ?

The 1665 is the business class version. I had thought about getting this one however I assumed that I would not be using it to it's fullest ability as it's intended for business class environments. I believe in keeping home and business class products separate.  ;)

Thanks again.  I was thinking that it might have better range with the outboard antennas but the internal antennas should be fine.  Each of my two routers uses external antennas, therefore I have no experience whatsoever with gear that uses inside antennas.

Cool picture of the internal antennas.  I will re-set my sights upon the DAP-1650.

I'm holding off on buying the DAP-1650.  I wouldn't use it upstairs for outdoor coverage until next Spring.  Also, I like the fact that the DIR-879 includes the Extender mode but the reviews on Amazon pertaining to the DIR-879 have caused me some confusion (and slight concern).  In other words, I still have some thinking to do.  Wish I knew which would provide the best coverage (power and distance) since I am trying to achieve WiFi coverage outdoors.  Well, I guess I have lots of time to think about it.  Meantime, I will continue to enjoy the use of my D-Link DIR-880L router which covers the entire inside of house from in the basement.  It's the ideal router without being overly costly.

Today, I went into the local OfficeDepot which it had always carried D-Link networking products in store.  No D-Link products on the shelf whatsoever, very unusual to me.  They're now selling TP-Link products in store.  That's just not right to me, no D-Link.  I always enjoyed looking at (and reading) the D-Link product boxes, etc., plus I bought my DIR-880L and former DIR-655 from there which I am well-pleased with each.  I should have asked the Store Manager, what's in the world is going on here...
