I am beyond bummed.
I ordered an DAP-1320 to further boost my Wi-Fi signal around the house
— to be a helper for the sometimes struggling Cisco RE1000 range extender.
It came the other day. Yesterday evening I installed it. Was a piece of cake though it took a long time to connect.
Then I realized that it was NOT extending my network, it had created a NEW network — with a very strong signal.
I did NOT want that.
You need to logon to the 2nd network with its
own network name (i.e., SSID) and PASSWORD.
I called up D-Link. After 35 minutes on hold I finally got an agent. They confirmed this. Does not extend. Creates 2nd network.
Suffice to say it is going back. I got it from Amazon — just for this. They are SO good about returns.
So a BIG HEADS UP.
DAP-1320 is not what you are probably looking for.
I might try the NetGear.
