This model works with AC Wi-Fi transmitters, but also is back compatible with previous versions. For maximal throughput you need to have all your devices set the fastest protocol or it slows down the entire system. That seven-year-old laptop still using protocol G will reduce everybody's speed since the Wi-Fi transmitter needs to pace it self to the slowest receiver.
This device actually solves that. You turn off the slow Wi-Fi in the older device, run a wire to this unit and it communicates with your main Wi-Fi transmitter using the fastest (current) protocol. It then sends down the wire a very fast signal to the ancient computer that is plugged into it.
I use mine to send and receive Wi-Fi across the house and the D-Link Wireless AC1200 switch has wires that go to my TV, Blu-Ray, Roku and a small computer at that end of the house. They all talk to the Internet at about 50 Meg. They all think they are hard-wired to the Internet. I do not tell them otherwise.
Like all computer devices it comes with a default password for the screen that sets them up. Please change this so that you are not a target for bad guys. I advise writing your unit's and Wi-Fi transmitter's passwords on a piece of paper that you tape to the bottom of each unit. Years later you will be thankful, and it is not a security risk. If a stranger is in your house looking at the passwords at the bottom of your Bridge, your problem is not the password.
When it works... great. Otherwise, very disappointing.
This unit was easy to install, received strong 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signals from our downstairs router, and now provides 40 Mbps download and 11 Mbps upload speeds, which is the maximum promised by our ISP (CenturyLink in Seattle). The devices connected together by ethernet can now communicate with one another at a much higher speed, which was the point of the exercise.
My only complaint is that the instructions that came with the Dlink unit were totally focused on its use as an extender. To configure it as a bridge or wireless access point (the other two possibilities), you first need to connect to it by WiFi and run their installation wizard in your browser.. Instructions on how to run the wizard are pretty clear but I think they should have said explicitly how to configure a bridge or WAP.
My D-Link DIR-825 Dual Band router (installed in the basement) could barely transmit the 5Ghz signal to the second floor; so I rarely had any of my mobile devices using the wide open 5Ghz channels. In addition, the 2.4Ghz signal strength was not that impressive (largely due to the metal heating ducts and tile kitchen floor the signal had to pass through); so I only had a few areas in my house where I could enjoy streaming videos and fast web browsing.
Last year I installed a Securifi Almond range extender (ran an Ethernet wire to the family room and configured it as a wired Access Point with the same SSID and password as the DIR-825 router in the basement). While that gave me full 2.4Ghz coverage on all three floors of the house, it did not have 5Ghz capability. Using the WiFi Analyzer Android app, I could see there were up to 12 other routers (from the nearby neighbors) transmitting on the 3 main 2.4Ghz channels (1, 6, 11). So at times, my internet speed slowed down because of the same-channel 2.4Ghz traffic. However, there were none detected on any of the 5Ghz channels.
So when I found the DAP-1650 range extender was released (I believe the only simultaneous dual-band, access-point configurable, range extender available), I quickly ordered one. It worked so well, I purchased a second one.
I now have the DIR-825 router in the basement configured with channel 11 (2.4Ghz) and channel 40 (5Ghz).
The first DAP-1650 installed in the family room configured with channel 1 (2.4Ghz) and channel 161 (5Ghz).
The second DAP-1650 is installed in a second floor bedroom configured with channel 6 (2.4Ghz) and channel 153 (5Ghz).
The three 2.4Ghz channels are under one SSID/password and the three 5Ghz channels are on a different SSID/password (The two SSIDs have 2G or 5G in the name to tell them apart). All mobile devices automatically switch channels to lock on the strongest one at any given time; I only have to manually select between the 2.4 or 5 Ghz SSIDs.
I changed the second DAP-1650's device ID to dlinkap2 (vs the default of the first one: dlinkap), so I can monitor/configure each DAP-1650 separately.
I now have 5 bars of 2.4Ghz coverage anywhere in the house, driveway, and yard (usually at my Comcast maximum 30MB/sec download speed). The 5Ghz signal is 4-5 bars anywhere inside the house (consistent 30MB/sec speed); outside the signal drops considerably, so the mobile devices jump over to the 2.4Ghz channels. Inside the house, I primarily stay attached to the 5Ghz channels because they have no competing traffic from the neighbors. Speed is faster and does not drop off at any time.
I will probably disable two of the 2.4Ghz channels and just use the one DAP-1650 in the family room to support the three older tablets/laptops that only have 2.4Ghz channels.
BTW - On the DAP-1650 in the family room, I have a PlayStation, TV, and Blu Ray player attached to the three available Ethernet ports (Ethernet port 1 is attached to the DIR-825 in the basement); so I was able to remove the small D-Link 4-port switch (DGS-1005G) I was using with the Almond.

I now have almost the exact hi-speed download signal in my basement as I do at the source - that's exceptional! It is incredibly reliable, was very easy to set-up and has never given me a moment of signal loss in the 2 months I have owned it.
I highly recommend this device if you are looking to get a strong signal in a tough location!
