 Solid performer -- for two days, or even a few weeks!

Easy setup. Works well for both AC and N. Signal strength indicator is useful. Web interface is sensible. Connection is stable -- unlike my experience with a comparable Netgear device. (This review is of the DAP-1620.)Update: After two days of working well, the unit failed. After reset, could not connect to Web interface to attempt to reconfigure. Exchanging for another of the same, figuring that it's a quality control issue rather than the fundamental design being bad.Update two: The replacement unit has now failed.

 Worked awesome

We have a huge house that was hardwired with Network cabling in nearly every room, but because it was so big, the wifi signal was none existent at the other end of the house or on the other floor. We plugged this into the network at that end of the house on the other floor and it worked awesome. No more wifi dead spots in the house. It was also extremely easy to get set up. Never had to call tech support because the setup was exactly like the instructions said.

 It’s a must get but think about it though.

I’ll be frank, it’s a great product, it does help, and does the job that it states, but I believe it’s limited. Where I have it is connected to the wall, and it has a Ethernet cable running to the Apple TV. At first it was perfect connection, strong and no problem, but now owning the product for two weeks and at random, it just loses connection and I can’t use the Apple TV. My internet app shows that it’s perfect signal, and the D-Link is connected; even Apple TV shows that it’s getting full juice from Ethernet cable, but loading YouTube, or Apple Music, and even HBO Max, and I get the loading circle. I restart the d-link and takes awhile (approx 2min to regain connection) and Apple TV is working again and all the apps. But when I disconnect the Ethernet cable, Apple TV works like a charm, I’m not sure where’s the fault here, if it’s the Ethernet cable or if it’s the D-Link. The signal bar on the Dlink shows full bar and at green. Just wish I’d know what was the actual problem; Other then that, this product has helped give better signal to our bedroom where at times without it, was a dead spot.

 Set up instructions incomplete and tech support difficult to obtain, especially for US customers.

I have just started to use this unit. After solving some mysterious installation issues not covered in the start up instructions, , it seems to be providing the additional coverage I was looking for, although I was able to find only one spot in my house where it worked. Also, this product appears to be marketed primarily to Canadian customers. For example, the telephone number for getting tech support is an 800 number that doesn't work from the US, and there is no alternative number provided. To get tech support, you have to send an email requesting it. I tried this when I had trouble with the installation, and am still waiting to hear back. Also, three months of free tech support is offered to Canadian customers but only one month to US customers.P. S. Finally got a response from tech support--an e-mail with boilerplate instructions that just repeated the manual and failed to address my issue. And those instructions are hardly user-friendly. .

 So Easy to Install & Set Up. I Strongly Recommend this Extender if You Have a D-Link Router.

I have a D-Link DIR-820L Router that I got on Amazon about 1 year ago. I live in a 1BR condo with plaster/lathe walls and get terrible Wi-Fi reception when I am more than 1 wall away from my router, until I plugged this Range Extender in. I bought a D-Link AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender, took it out of the box, plugged it in, and pushed the WPS button on my D-Link router and push the WPS button on the D-Link range extender. That was all I had to do, other than enter my password for my 2 channels (1) 2.4 GHz & (2) 5 GHz. I now cannot find any spot in my condo that doesn't get a excellent signal. In fact, when my tablet is connected to the range extender on 2.4 or 5 GHz, I get better reception than I ever did with the router, even when I am closer to the router than the range extender.

 Easy to setup

The device is easy to setup. However, I am attempting to return it, because of the WiFi signal. I tried multiple locations in the house. 2 green bars, it didn't provide any better signal than the router. 3 green bars and it's like where my router signal is low, the AC1200 provided good signal, but I did not get extended coverage, like I was hoping for. From my experience, I would say that if walls are your issue, they may still be and if you're looking to buy the D-Link AC1200 to project your signal, don't get it. If you are looking to get better signal to the other half of your room/house, it will probably work for you. And to note, the last firmware update was in 2015.

 Works well, although reboots every once-in-a-while.

I use this as an ethernet bridge for my desktop computer, and have not really tested the repeater functions. It works well generally, with good speeds. There are, however, two issues I have come across. The first is that you can not turn off the repeater function if you use it as a bridge. The second is that it reboots itself about once a week, and is offline for about a minute. Overall, not bad for the price.

 Very Disappointing Device

This device is very unstable. I have now had this device for about 1 year. At this point it must be unplugged from the wall on a daily basis as it becomes unstable and loses its network connection, and just pushing the reset button does not reestablish the connection. It must be left unplugged for a long while before it can be plugged in again and establish a network connection.I have a D-Link router, and connection of this device to the router was relatively easy. My D-Link routed has worked flawlessly for years, but this device has been unstable from the beginning, losing the network connection on a regular basis, but now as I indicated above it becomes unstable several times daily, and is basically useless.Wish I could get my money back

 Very easy to setup

So much better than the older AP I was using. This is hardwired into my network and rebroadcasts in a part of the house where the 5Ghz and even the 2.4Ghz signal is low from the main router. Very easy to setup and the firmware will even update automatically instead of having to dig around the manufacturer's website and 'hope' you grab the right version so you don't brick it. Great feature that they added!
