D-Link DAP-2553 Wireless N 5GHz Access Point


I prefer wireless routers with external antennas. Generally more gain with less wiring in the box. I teamed this with a DLink Dir 655 by pluging this unit into the back of the 655, brought up the DAP 2553 router http site and programed it. I can access...

Good access point


This one has alot of features multi-array etcI just needed a solid access point so this onedefinitely does the job. I had trouble with wifi on 2.5ghz (wireless phone, microwave etc) so using 5ghz did the trick .. luckily most of the stuff i had was...

Great for basic use


I'm only using this as a basic AP in my house, so I can't comment on the viability of this AP in a commercial setting, but I'm very happy with how it has performed so far. Located in my basement (as high as possible) I get near perfect signal in my...

Solid construction, good signal range

Clunky/slow management interface

a real wireless access point


A great little drive. Did some research before purchasing, because I was working with a Silverstone ML03 MicroATX HTPC case, drive depth was limited to 170mm or less. Some drives do not fit this requirement. The Sony did & was on a budget, which is all...

Very nice commerical solution for building to building wireless acess points. also great for inside buildings that cause heartache for the home wireless routers

a little pricey but still worth the money

so so


I'd used one of these before for a cost sensitive customer and they were very happy with it. So when a small school needed to connect two offices 200' from each other, I suggested these. I configured them as WDS no problem, then took one to the...

Solid construction, easy to configure, reasonable price for an entry level business class AP

Wireless signal weak

Short and Sweet!!! Hooray for Good Products!!!


F.Y.I. - My setup includes a wireless modem/router, an 8port Cisco PoE switch (they sell it on newegg), and this access point. At first I was going to switch on the router's wireless along with this one. But I wanted to test the power of this bad boy...

Pros? This is one of the easiest devices to setup ever! It was literally plug and play! The only thing I had to change was my routers subnet (instead of using the private .1.1 range, I set it to .0.1 people, nothing huge) to DLink's, and that's just...

Don't get discouraged by all the bad ratings ; If I wouldn't have used my gut instinct and previous experience with DLinks products, I would have missed out on a great opportunity! Don't double think, just add to the cart and buy. It worked great for...

Beware! Something you should know before you buy this!!


Be careful and do some research into this product before you buy it, do not be led into false advertisement. Now as a side not, i was able to "hide" the network and devices from ALL wireless devices that are connected to this Access Point. This can be...

This router is durable and functions properly with no faults. This is a good router for the NORMAL user

FALSE ADVERTISING ALERT!!! Beware of the Multi-SSID advertisement. yes it is true that this router has Multi-SSID functionality and is VLAN capable, BUT in order to actually use those functions, your gateway network upstream (Wired Router, Switches)...

Works well until warranty is over


I really wish I had not been forced to spend a month figuring out the problem with these access points. They worked so well in the beginning! I own four of these. They all degraded at the same time in the same way. One failed outright.

These access points are extremely well-constructed and work well... for a time. Expect about 18-24 months of useful operation

After 18-24 months, the cheap capacitors inside bulge and start screaming. The receive error rate sky-rockets until they become practically unuseable. So, unless the capacitors on the board have been upgraded, expect a lifetime just longer than the...

Worst piece of Hardware and support I have ever seen


I am a soldier in Afghanistan and we were depending on these products working so we could actually talk to our families. 1 month and 600 dollars later, this will not happen. Thank you D-Link for such a moral killing product.

Ease of spelling D-Link

No set-up guide with examples on how to use there features. Came with a 1 page pamplet on how to plug in the poewr cord ; D-Link has NO basic troubleshooting guides ; After 1 month of spending countless nights trouble this expensive pile of human...

Product Specifications

This product is customized for use throughout Europe, except UK and Ireland. What it does? The D-Link AirPremier DWL-3200AP is a powerful and reliable wireless access point for business-class enterprise environments. Designed for indoor installation, this access point provides secure options for network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust wireless network. Enclosed in a plenum metal chassis, the DWL-3200AP adheres to strict fire codes and ensures complete safety. This access point supports 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) and provides two high-gain antennas for optimal wireless coverage. The DWL-3200AP delivers extremely reliable wireless performance with standard 802.11g wireless throughput rates of up to 54Mbps. It has the added capability of reaching maximum wireless signal rates of up to 108Mbps (Turbo mode) powered by D-Link 108G technology. At the same time, the DWL- 3200AP remains fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g standards. Since wireless security remains a strong concern among businesses, the DWL-3200AP provides the latest wireless security technologies by supporting both WPA Enterprise and 802.1x to ensure complete network protection. In addition, the DWL-3200AP currently comes 802.11i-ready to fully support industrial grade wireless security. Network administrators can manage all the DWL-3200AP's settings via its web-based configuration utility or with Telnet. For advanced network management, the administrators can use D-Link's AP Manager or D-View SNMP management module to configure and manage multiple access points from a single location. In addition to a streamlined management process, network administrators can also verify and conduct regular maintenance checks without wasting resources by sending personnel out to physically verify proper operation. To maximize total return on investment, the DWL-3200AP can be configured to operate as an access point (AP mode), a point-to-point bridge or a point-to-multipoint bridge (WDS mode). In the WDS mode, the DWL-3200AP communicates only with wireless bridges, without allowing for wireless clients or stations to access them. The DWL-3200AP supports multiple SSIDs, allowing you to separate applications based on security and performance requirements. You can enable encryption and authentication on one SSID to protect private applications and no security on another SSID to maximize open connectivity for public usage. Multiple SSIDs means you can mix and match the broadcasting of SSIDs. For public Internet access applications, you can broadcast the SSID to enable user radio cards to automatically find available access points. For private applications, you can disable SSID broadcast to prevent intruders from identifying your network. You can set the number of users that can associate via a particular SSID to control usage of particular applications. This can help provide a somewhat limited form of bandwidth control for particular applications. By supporting multiple SSIDs, the DWL-3200AP allows you to logically divide your access point into several virtual access points all within a single hardware platform. Rather than having two separate WLANs, you can deploy one access point to support more than one application, such as public Internet access and internal network control to increase flexibility and keep costs down.
