What is D-Link Wireless?
D-Link Wireless offers a wide range of robust wireless Access Points (APs) operating in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, supporting the latest wireless standards including 802.11ac and 802.11n. These access points can be managed independently as standalone devices, or collectively by using Central Wi-Fi Manager, a free centralized controller software that can be installed on a Windows server or PC.

D-Link Wireless was previously known as D-Link WLAN.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have encountered a few issues in terms of services. However, in the case of performance, we have not seen any instability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is most often used on small campuses.

How are customer service and support?

We have dealt with their online support and our experience has been good.

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

We use networking devices from both Cisco and D-Link. We prefer to use Cisco products for large campuses or widely-spread organizations.

How was the initial setup?

It is a simple, plug-and-play setup. It is a little more work if we have to put in restrictions and other settings, but overall, it is not complex.

What other advice do I have?

For small businesses, this is definitely a product that I recommend.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Stable and easy to install but does not have social media enabled for hotspot capabilities
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is extremely easy to install. You just add them and in a few clicks, they are ready to go."
  • "The solution doesn't have hotspots. Users can't set it up so that visitors can log in via Facebook or social media as they can at, for example, airports. D-Link should include hotspots that offer integration with social media. That way, visitors don't need to be asking people for passwords. They can just use Facebook."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use it for our customers, which include schools and special institutions.

In one instance, we handled a university that had multiple touchpoints and a central location broadcasting out. They now have small D-Link wireless access points in both 2.4GB and 5GB. The 5GB is like a backup. The university connects to the 5GB and uses the 2.4GB to advertise to the client. That's just one use case scenario.

What is most valuable?

The solution is extremely easy to install. You just add them and in a few clicks, they are ready to go.

What needs improvement?

We've had issues with the 150MG and 300MB dongles. Users will see there is Wi-Fi and connect. We have to use the D-Link card to supplement the wireless card. The 300MB works okay but the 150MB is not working well for us.

The solution should offer wireless controllers.

The solution needs to add centralized management that could be available on the cloud so that managers can manage it from anywhere in the world.

The solution doesn't have hotspots. Users can't set it up so that visitors can log in via Facebook or social media as they can at, for example, airports. D-Link should include hotspots that offer integration with social media. That way, visitors don't need to be asking people for passwords. They can just use Facebook. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for seven to eight years at this point.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable. Our clients haven't mentioned any bugs or glitches.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've never contacted technical support, so I can't speak to how they are.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is super straightforward. It's truly just a few clicks and it's ready to go. Deployment, however, could involve switches or firewalls as well, so it usually takes two weeks because there are so many other moving parts. It's not related to D-Link per se, because the wireless is another segment of the network. However, if you are talking about general infrastructure, of which D-Link is a part, it's about two weeks.

There are sometimes three or four people involved in the implementation process.

The maintenance is always done by the clients. We deploy and then we are hands-off. We don't normally have a problem with support on D-Link. Customers don't normally complain about services or have issues. 

What about the implementation team?

We normally deploy the solution ourselves.

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

I'm not sure what sort of licenses our clients set up with the vendor. I'm not aware of any additional costs beyond the license itself.

What other advice do I have?

I don't personally use the solution, but I use it for my clients.

The solution is stable once you install it, however, I would advise companies to use a wireless controller like Cisco or Aruba once it is deployed. In terms of the deployment process, it's great.

I'd rate it seven out of ten.
