Unable to connect to as bridge.. need help
« on: December 21, 2014, 03:51:22 PM »


I seem to be unable to connect my DAP-1522 (using it as a bridge) to my wireless router.  In the 1522's admin, I can see the wireless connection (through the site survey), put in a pass and it seems to go through the steps correctly, however, the DAP-1522 never actually connects to my wireless router. .  When I setup the DAP-1522 do I need to put the switch as AP or Bridge?  I am 100%sure the password is correct.  any ideas or steps that I can try?

  • What Hardware version is your DAP? Look at sticker under the DAPs case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DAPs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Wireless Configurations
What is the Mfr of Model of your main host router?
  • What wireless modes are you using on the main host router?
  • 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz routers: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N on 2.4Ghz and single mode N or AC on 5Ghz?
  • Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
  • Try setting a manual Channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear. 13 for EU regions. Try channel 48 or 149 on 5Ghz.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.
  • What wireless devices do you have connected?
  • Ensure any devices with WiFi adapter drivers are updated.
  • Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz cordless house phones or WiFi APs near by?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many? Use v3, its free.

Router 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 and WELL ventilated is preferred. Not in basements or closets as building materials, or near by electronics devices could interfere or hinder good signal propagation.
What is the distance between the main host router and the DAP?
