    Very good AP however Password restriction feature and their support system needs improvement some time it's connect with password and without password too.
    Pros and Cons
      • "Password restriction: Sometimes we set a password and it uses that password but, after some days/months, the password gets changed and a few laptops still use old the password while a few use the new password. The password restriction option needs to improve."
      • "Its interface and support system need much improvement. Sometimes, when we use the interface to reset the password and configure SSIDs, or some other changes, the "Save" option does not show and we have to go to some internal setting and then we can "save" the setting. The “Save” option should be in front of or below of the settings."
      • "Sometimes we configure the SSID with a password but the same AP shows two WiFi connections with the same SSID name (one is protected by a password and another one give access without a password)."

      What is our primary use case?

      We use the access points to provide internet connectivity to laptops, mobile phones, tablets, etc.

      We are using leased-line connections through which internet connection is provided to different buildings, and through LAN connection or AP we extend the internet connection.

      How has it helped my organization?

      Earlier, we used small WiFi which reset automatically and started distributing its own IP address. This stopped internet access connection and computers/laptops connecting from a different network. However, after using D-Link access points, this issue was eliminated.

      What is most valuable?

      It automatically accesses the network and starts to provide internet connection; it does not need to configure or create an issue like small WiFis. It's recommended to use for large or medium sized organizations.

      What needs improvement?

      1. Password restriction: Sometimes we set a password and it uses that password but, after some days/months, the password gets changed and a few laptops still use old the password while a few use the new password. The password restriction option needs to improve.
      2. Its interface and support system need much improvement. Sometimes, when we use the interface to reset the password and configure SSIDs, or some other changes, the "Save" option does not show and we have to go to some internal setting and then we can "save" the setting. The “Save” option must be in front of or below of the settings.
      3. Support system: Sometimes we urgently need help from the support center and ask for help many times. Either the call does not connect or it connects after a very long time. Also, at times we do not get proper support from the support Engineer.
      4. Sometimes we configure the SSID with a password but the same AP shows two WiFi connections with the same SSID name (one is protected by a password and another one give access without a password).

      A complete wireless solution that is competitively priced, but the technology needs to catch up with bigger vendors

      • "D-Link has some catching up to do in terms of advancing and improving its technology."

      What is our primary use case?

      We are a solution provider and I am a wireless engineer. D-Link Wireless is one of the products that we implement for our clients.

      The primary use case is access points in small business networks.

      What is most valuable?

      D-Link comes with a complete solution including wireless, switching, and static wiring. This is a big advantage because if you implement with other OEMs then you have to do these things separately.

      The price of D-Link Wireless is very good, which is one major factor.

      What needs improvement?

      D-Link has some catching up to do in terms of advancing and improving its technology. For example, the bigger OEMs like Cisco, Juniper, and Aruba all have more advanced systems coming up.

      I have been working with D-Link Wireless for perhaps one year.

      What do I think about the stability of the solution?

      Scalability is there and you can expand as needed.

      I have not been in contact with technical support.

      Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

      I also have experience with Ubiquiti Wireless. The suitability of a product depends on our client's requirements. There are a lot of things to consider and we also want to meet the budget.

      We recommend whatever product or vendor is best for them. This includes a comparison that is based on the design that we come up with for them.

      What about the implementation team?

      We have an in-house team that deploys and maintains these products on behalf of our clients. We do support, as well.

      What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

      D-Link pricing is very competitive when you consider other OEMs. I would say that it's on the lower to medium side. Everything is included in the price.

      What other advice do I have?

      D-Link is a good product that is quite affordable and I recommend it.

      I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
