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...

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...

Nice AP


Installed easily to my Sonic Wall router. Easily configured. Has a good signal that covers my office. No complaints!

Consumer review by:

Great but touchy


The AP took a call to tech support to get it working properly. Tech support was very good and fast. Once the unit was working our network is much faster.

Like others said, you can only use one of the two bands at once, but other than that this is an excellent AP. Lets you run it in ''WDS & AP'' mode so that if you're using WDS you can still have it function as an AP unlike some others that will only do...

Great, full-featured WDS access point


This is a great although not cheap, full-featured access point that supports wireless distribution system (WDS) very well. The build quality is great, but the even more expensive WAP-2590 is better.

Consumer review by:

good but expensive


Bought this so I could add my WD TV live to the same network where my NAS box is. Then decided to add a PC too and so far it works really well on wireless N. MKV files stream without issues. I use it on 2.4GHz since neither my wd tv wireless card or...

Good, Cheap


I recently upgraded almost my entire wireless network to these. They have been setup for about a month now. I've yet to have a single issue with their performance.

Business Class AP at good price point


Will handle heavy load when used in typical business setting. Seems well made, metal case. Nice mounting option including power-over-ethernet option that allows mounting AP if there is no power outlet nearby. Good if somewhat outdated user interface....

WDS mode with AP (bridge mode) is confusing to set up, manual (on CD) is not much help

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.
