Very good AP however Password restriction feature and their support system needs improvement some time it's connect with password and without password too.

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.

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 other advice do I have?

    D linkbsupport system must needs to improve to help thir users in order to resolve the issue quickly.

    Stable and easy to install but does not have social media enabled for hotspot capabilities

    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.

    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 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.
