NOT A "RANGE EXTENDER". as the Selling Description claims.
If you read the detailed description or the on-line user manual you will find that the DAP-1525 is a MEDIA BRIDGE or an ACCESS POINT but NOT a RANGE EXTENDER. For a range extender, buy the DLINK DAP-1650.
The DAP-1525 can provide wireless functionality to non-wireless capable network (i.e., plug in only) network devices such a wired surveillance cameras or pc's w/o built in wireless on the motherboard. It can ALTERNATIVELY add wireless broadcast "Access Point" to a non-wireless existing router. Although it is capable of operating in 2.4 or 5.0 wireless bands, it can not serve as an access point in both at once (which DLINK dual band ap's can do). Spend about $30 more and get the DAP-1650 for the added functionality and flexibility. By the Way, the DAP-1525 can only host 4 network plug in devices so if your dead zone has more than 4 or you can't plut those things in the dead zone in, the DAP-1525 won't help you.
