Hello New to the forum and I saw this post and I have a few remarks to be considered (or I don't know about them)
Issues I face:
1-Slave B sometimes loses DHCP connection to Master A and never reconnect until I restart it.
2- lack of dual-band SSID Broadcast which I think would be a huge plus to the network.
3-Display Ethernet connection vs wireless this is rather annoying.
4-Bridge mode from my experience lags sometimes over a wifi connection.
5-Schedule/Parental control for accessing the wifi have two issues *first, it isn't displayed and couldn't find any place to enable it (Attachment Enclosed) *Second after playing with inspect website it was disabled by default with no way to access it for standard user * third, after accessing the parental/schedule and enabling it the schedule ( I Tried all Kinds of schedules scenarios) doesn't deny the connection of a specific device it simply stays connected with internet on at all time although the wifi logo for the device says blocked/Banned.
6- I simply feel the device lacks customization if I may say a 20$ Mikrotik router has more customization features that the COVR doesn't stand a chance against.
7- QOS Engine has 2 issues first there's no way to specify per device speed or QoS, Second it doesn't work in any way it's like it isn't enabled at all.
those are the issues that mainly face me daily.
Help is more than welcomed

Have you updated your two older posts?


Hello New to the forum and I saw this post and I have a few remarks to be considered (or I don't know about them)
Issues I face:
1-Slave B sometimes loses DHCP connection to Master A and never reconnect until I restart it.
What is the distance between A point and B point.

2- lack of dual-band SSID Broadcast which I think would be a huge plus to the network.
Separation of SSIDs is not supported on COVR MESH systems.

3-Display Ethernet connection vs wireless this is rather annoying.
How so?

4-Bridge mode from my experience lags sometimes over a wifi connection.
What is the mfr and model of the main host router upstream when the COVR is in AP mode (bridge)?

5-Schedule/Parental control for accessing the wifi have two issues *first, it isn't displayed and couldn't find any place to enable it (Attachment Enclosed) *Second after playing with inspect website it was disabled by default with no way to access it for standard user * third, after accessing the parental/schedule and enabling it the schedule ( I Tried all Kinds of schedules scenarios) doesn't deny the connection of a specific device it simply stays connected with internet on at all time although the wifi logo for the device says blocked/Banned.
What browser are you using? This happen with IE11, Firefox or Opera?
Is this in router mode or AP mode when your using the parental controls?


6- I simply feel the device lacks customization if I may say a 20$ Mikrotik router has more customization features that the COVR doesn't stand a chance against.
Most DIR routers UI are meant for simplistic use and the average home user. If your an advanced user looked for more features, the COVR may not be what is best suited for you.

7- QOS Engine has 2 issues first there's no way to specify per device speed or QoS, Second it doesn't work in any way it's like it isn't enabled at all.
those are the issues that mainly face me daily.
Mostly QOS is automatic when setting the speeds. Other routers have priority sections where you can place a device in a High, Medium or Low section. Something that D-Link may have not included on this system.

1- the distance is the same as ever when it works normally it gives an excellent signal between both but sometimes for no reason whatsoever this happens.
2I know its not supported that was wishful thinking.
3-if it is using the ethernet backhaul or the wifi backhaul.
4-Ill get that information for your next post.
5-I tried Chrome and Firefox both no prevail, it is in the router mode.
6- yea I know but even a noob can get what he wants even if its a bit complex, also bringing in features doesn't mean the UI will become complex there are many features that can be integrated without complexing the system/UI.
7-Okay I understand that but the Engine doesn't work or speed no priority sometimes the third row gets higher priority than the first place. and that depicts the term isn't working.

What is the distance between A point and B point. In Feet please.

Ok, Ya I agree, I wish they would have a status icon for wireless or Ethernet connected Points.


If you feel that Parental controls and Qos is not working I would make contact with D-Link support and let them know about this. Get a case number going.
We are seeing other issues as well on the 2202 system:

I think ill open a ticket with D'link but their support is really slow and takes forever to reply back (Previous experience)

the distance you have is too close. There is too much wifi over lap at that distance.
Try 30 feet to start.

Seems that the just released new iOS version of the DLink WIFI (1.2.6build3), allow to revert back from Bridge to Router mode. I have not tested.

Where did you see this information?  :o
Hoping that reverting back from bridge(AP) mode with in the A Points web page can be implemented as well.

Well the apps update was proposed to me this WE so I took a look at the new UI, hoping to see some way to disable the guest wifi, and saw this enhancement instead.

Ok so I tested this out. Operation mode appears with in the app. However coming back from bridge mode to router mode still requires the A point to be factory reset and setup from scratch.





Really hope D-Link can change this. Not ideal way to revert back from bridge (AP) mode to router mode with having to set up the A point from scratch.  >:(
I suppose users will need to keep a router mode backup configuration file handy.

It's currently the only way right now according to the vendor. They are aware of it. Realistically how often are customers going to go back and forth though? Probably very rarely.

Understand. Though when someone has to revert back from "bridge" mode, why should a user have to re setup the router mode though. I guess long experiences with other routers have always had the ability to revert back with out having to setup again.  :-\ Seems odd that the 2200 series does this. I don't recall the 1200 series having this problem... ???

Well, I would like the "bridge" mode changed to "Access Point" instead. Another long experience and standardized terminology that I'm just used to.  ::)

Hoping the DNS Relay and Guess Mode issues can be fixed. Rather have these fixes in place.  :-\

Personally I wish routers were just routers and if people need extenders or access point, buy an extender or access point....but that is just me lol.

I agree with bridge vs access point mode. If you use ethernet <<>> wireless is an access point. Wireless <<>> wireless is extender or bridge mode.

DNS relay issue has been addressed but I do not see any tickets for guest mode.

Ya, but everyone wants a product that is flexible as well. Ya how often does a average home use switch to AP or wireless bridge mode on the 200-400$ router they bought. Seems that these users would only need just a router with out the extra features.

Yes. If anything, please ask the vendor to change the terminology. Most of use know what things to pertain to, however also on the other side of the fence, those of us having to help users in support questions and senarios, should have more accurate terminology to what the product is actually doing. The 1200 and 2200 series do not support any wireless "bridge" modes. Can be confusing to the average users seeking help and support information if a problem comes up.

Do we need to make contact with D-Link support for Guest Network? I will. One user said he did however he closed it prematurely taking in considerations of the CD19 events happening. Please let us know if we need to make contact with D-Link about this. This is a problem. One other reason why I can't use the 2200 at this time.
