D-Link DAP-1522 :: Wireless Connection Usually Much Slower Than Other AP

Jan 22, 2009

I have a defective DAP-1522, or what. First off, I have never been able to access the unit at http://DLINKAP when my computer is connected directly to the 1522 via ethernet, only works to bring up the web interface.

Second, I have more than one AP at my house, but the DAP-1522 is the only networking device I have have problems with (I am using the unit in AP mode). Basically, the problem is the wireless connection usually is much slower than my other APs (both N and G), even when the computer is physically right next to the DAP-1522. And that's when the unit is at it's best. At it's worst, I can't connect to the internet at all, even though my laptop shows full signal strength. The 1522 just seems really finicky. The problem doesn't seem to be a networking issue, because a 2nd AP that is connected through the wired portion of the DAP-1522 works perfectly, implying the 1522 is having no networking issues when using the ethernet ports. But since the problems persist with full signal strength and with the computer right next to the 1522, it doesn't seem to be a wireless connection issue either. And I have no problems connecting to any other wireless APs I own (and I own about 5 others, not that I use them all at the same time).

If I could, I would return my 1522, but I've been tinkering with it for too long now to return it. It has caused me a ton of frustration. I had a wired-only router for a long time (hence the purchase of the 1522), but just bought a new wireless-N router that is performing perfectly (as a router, and as an N AP). I hoped the old router might have not been playing nice with the 1522, but have seen no improvement with the 1522 wired to the new router (on opposite ends of my home).

Note that I use Macs only, no Windows machines. I started with the 1.02 firmware for the 1522, now have 1.20 firmware, but have noticed no improvements with my issues.

Broadband :: Century Link DSL Wireless Connection Much Slower Than Wired?

Sep 7, 2012

I have internet thru Century Link (DSL). I also have a Netgear N-300 wireless router. My computer is 4 years old and is an HP with a G wireless adapter buit-in. Until yesterday, my provided internet speed was up to 7mbps. I received the same speed regardless of whether my computer was plugged in directly to the modem (1), plugged directly into the router (2), or wirelessly. We just upgraded our internet to 40mbps. Now, I get the 40 mbps when my computer is plugged into the modem or router, but wirelessly I only get about 4 mbps, 1/10th of what I get with wired.

D-Link DAP-1522 :: A1 In Bridge Mode Intermittent Wireless Connection Drops?

Apr 21, 2013

I have a brand new DAP-1522 A1 connected to an 802.11n wireless LAN in bridge mode. Running in the 2.4GHz band with WPK-2 and AES security/encryption.Everything runs fine 99% of the time, but once a day or so the wireless LAN connection on the DAP-1522 drops and then takes about two minutes to re-connect.  It re-connects and then everything is fine for a day or so until the next dropped wireless connection episode on the DAP-1522.  I know my 802.11n wireless network is 100% fine as during the dropped connection to the DAP-1522 I can connect directly to the 802.11n wireless network (running from my gateway/router) using my other computer, no issues.I've seen some posts on this forum that the A1 version of the DAP-1522 hardware is not 100% compatible with the 802.11n network standard and there will be intermittent wireless drops.  If this is true, it's just insane.  All I can say is I can't believe DLink would allow a product to be sold that won't work properly on 802.11n networks.I check the logs each time I see the dropped wireless connection and all that shows is the following.1) Negotiating connection   2) 4-way handshake success [mac address]There's no message in the logs about why the wireless connection dropped, but I assume it has something to do with re-newing a key for the wireless network as the successful key renewal messages are the only other messages in the log.  When the wireless network dropped I don't see the successful key renewal message at the time I should see it.I thought this DAP-1522 would take 15 minutes to configure in bridge mode and then I'd forget about it.  Spend too much time on this already, so a bit disappointed with this DAP-1522 and DLink tech support....though when it's connected to the 802.11n wireless LAN it works fine.

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Dropping Connection When Using N-mode

Sep 19, 2009

I have just upgraded my network to the 802.11n standard, or at least am trying to do that. Im using a DIR-615 as Access Point and a DAP-1522 as bridge to cover the entire area.After having some trouble figuring out how to set up and connect the devices, i figure out that it might some other problem than my setup of the devices (The symptom was that the connection was ok, but then it seemed to be dropped, even though the DAP-1522 still displayed connected in the status page).

After reading what I could find about the DIR-615 and DAP-1522 in this forum and on the internet, I found a suggestion about changing the Wireless Mode from 802.11b/g/n to 802.11b/g, and after doing that everything works fine, its just not an upgrade anymore.I have fixed the channel to 10, just to check that it wasnt  noise from other equipment. The symptoms are very reproducable, trying to connect wiin n-mode and bridge only works for 30-60 secs. Switching back to b/G mode and all is fine.

D-Link DAP-1522 :: No Internet Access With Connection To DIR-655

Aug 29, 2012

I have a DIR-655 set up as follows: [code] Lost Internet Access on my DAP-1522 on only my wireless laptop connection, but not other wireless nodes on the DAP-1522.I have most of my wireless nodes attached to the DIR-655, which is upstairs. Downstairs is where the DAP-1522 is located. There is a wired connection between the DIR-655 and DAP-1522. The DAP-1522 is being used as a Access Point. On this I have only three nodes that are wireless. My Smartphone, iPad and my laptop. There are also three nodes that are using the wired ports with no issue accessing the internet. The setup above have being working for over two years with no issue. Then three days ago my laptop connects to the DAP-1522, but has "No Internet Access." If I change my wireless connection to the DIR-655 on my laptop, then I do have internet connection. My Smartphone and iPad still are able to access the DAP-1522 and get the internet.

I have deleted my DHCP Reservation for only my laptop on the DIR-655. Wireless connection to the DAP-1522, looked at the DIR-655 and see that DHCP Reservation show the MAC of the laptop and I Reserve it. Still "No Internet Access." On the DAP-1522 it does show that my laptop is associated to this device. I cannot ping my local LAN IP Addresses , a website or Public IP Address only from the laptop. The DIR-655 shows a "Do Not Enter: Wireless system with MAC address 4025C2B97110 disconnected for reason: Received Deauthentication" with a connection to the DAP-1522, but shows "Do Not Enter: Wireless system with MAC address 4025C2B97110 secured and linked" with a connection to the DIR-655.

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Loses Bridge Connection When Powered Down / Up?

Apr 17, 2011

It took a while but I've had my 1522 running well for several days. However, if I power down and then power up the 1522, it never reconnects. The bridge mode light flashes 5 times, then - nothing.

So, I have to disconnect everything, bring the 1522 back to my main PC, attach it, let it connect properly, then unattach and re-attach at it's use site.

(I'm using a static IP address and a Cisco E3000 router working perfectly with all my other stuff. Firmware v1.31)

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Bridge Mode Connection Settings?

Apr 25, 2012

I currently have a DAP1522 in Bridge mode with a DIR655.  I am only using the 2.4GHz G mode on my 655.  In a few days I will be replacing the 655 with an 825.  When I log into the 1522 I don't see any settings for Mode, Frequency or Width (while in Bridge mode).  The page for wireless setup is blank except for the "Save Settings" button.  When I look at the 655, it appears that the 1522 is connected (bridged) at 2.4 GHz G like I would expect.  So, when I install the 825 how do I make it connect at 5GHz N or will that be automatic if my SSID on the N mode of the 825 matches SSID on the 1522?

I'm trying to hook up a dap-1522 to an SMC8014WG wireless router. All goes well for about 10 minutes then the SMC drops all wireless connections except the connection to the 1522, and loses internet connectivity.There are several other wireless devices connected to the SMC but none of them causes it to go down.

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Can't Change LAN Connection Type After Updating Firmware

Mar 27, 2012

I have my dap-1522 connected to my dir-655 in bridge mode.  I was having intermitant connection problems with the dap-1522, so I updated the firmware to 1.41 for version A1.  Now when I go to change the connection type to dynamic ip and save, it reverts back to static ip, which makes this thing useless for my network.  Why won't it save?

WRT54GS / Slower Internet Speeds On Wireless Connection?

Aug 17, 2011

I have two computers in the house both HP desktops, both run Windows XP SP3. The first one is connected to the internet by ethernet cable through a WRT160N router to a cable modem, the other is in another room ( about 20 feet away from the router with only one wall). The wired computer averages around 15-20mbps download speed while the wireless only gets about 7-9mbps. I've checked them both using Speakeasy.net and Speedtest.net the results are always about the same, the wireless has about half the download speed of the wired connection. They both have .95-.98 mbps upload speeds. When my old router (WRT54GS) finally gave up I bought the WRT160N which is an N router, I haven't upgraded the network adapter in the wireless computer to N yet. My question is should I lose this much speed through the wireless connection or do I need to change the settings on the router or the wireless adapter?

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Nothing Showing In Wireless Setting?

Mar 23, 2011

I got a DAP-1522 and here is my situation. I have a wireless router connected to the internet downstairs. I want to extend the range by creating a new wireless network upstairs. So I want the DAP-1522 to connect to the wireless router, and then become another access point upstairs.

I was able to connect to the wireless router in the DAP-1522 setup wizard, but nowhere was I able to configure that actual DAP-1522 WIRELESS setup. Nothing ever showed up on the "Wireless Settings". Just "Save Settings" "Do Not Save Settings" and the rest of the screen empty. On the status page it does show it is connected.

Am I doing something wrong or will the DAP-1522 not do this?

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Does WoL Work If PC Is Behind Wireless Bridge

Jan 28, 2010

I want to send a WoL (wake on lan) packet to power up a PC which is wired to DAP-1522.  The DAP-1522 is connected to my DIR-655 router wirelessly.  So far, I have no luck.  Do you know if the DAP-1522 is capable of passing the WoL?  Does it need a firmware upgrade before it can do so?

New PC Has Much Slower Internet Connection Than An Old Laptop?

Nov 12, 2012

I recently built my first PC:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9 (overlcocked to 4.1)
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 16339 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670, -2048 Mb
Antivirus: avast! Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

But I have been having major issues with internet speed. I browsed through the forums and, as a result, updated my LAN driver with the latest driver for the Intel LAN Driver V17.3.0.0

I have the virgin media super hub with up to 60mbps download but rarely get over 20 and even then the download of webpages seems glitchy... on evenings it is terrible with 0.5 to 1.5mbps being the norm.The problem is also affecting Chrome which struggles to render maps and stream videos such as 720p videos on youtube even when I have a tested connection of 30ish. I usually resort to using Explorer, reducing videos to 360p or even 240p.I've reinstalled Chrome a few times but still no change.

What is going on??I also have an old Dell Inspiron laptop which works brilliantly with the fast internet - where the speed of the hardware is the only limiting factor.

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Will Not Pass Video Stream Via Wireless

Nov 8, 2011

Using as AP.  Last Tuesday in the middle of a Netflix movie the video stopped.  Now the wireless portion of the DAP-1522 refuses to pass any type of video.  Everything else works (email, Google, Facebook, etc.).  I can get to Netflix, Youtube, Yahoo, etc. .....but none of them will pass video.

Using a direct wired connection to the DAP-1522 everything works.  Netflix, Youtube, etc.

Download speed checks at 17.74mbps.

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Wireless MAC Cloning In Bridge Mode?

May 16, 2011

I'm running the 1522 as a bridge with v1.21 firmware.  I have 2 devices wired to it. I have Wireless MAC cloning disabled (not checked). If I scan my network using a tool such as ipscanner (http:url.....) the devices attached to the bridge are being listed with the 1522's MAC address - not their own.

The connected devices should be showing up with their own MAC addresses.  The 1522's address should only be displayed IF MAC cloning is enabled and IF the cloning mode is set to Auto - is my understanding of this feature incorrect or is my 1522 not performing as spec'd?

Then set the guest zone to broadcast on 2.4GHz just for my lame printer, my printer does not have LAN and only wireless b & g. If I do put the printer on the guest zone and I enable routing between zones, will my laptop be able to print to my printer?

D-Link DAP-1522 :: To Work As Wireless Access Point To DIR-825

Jun 4, 2011

So just recently purchased the DIR-825 and DAP-1522.  At this point I just want to get the DAP-1522 to work as a wireless access point to my DIR-825.  So my wireless laptop would connect wirelessly to the DAP-1522 and the 1522 would go wireless to the router.  Pretty basic I guess.  I was planning on using the WAP to strengthen the 5 GHz signal to the router but again, at this point, I would be happy to get the 2.4 GHz working.

I've been working on this since last night and got frustrated and went to bed.  I woke up fresh and decided to try again and I'm not having making any headway.

DIR-825 is connected to my DSL modem and has no problem accessing the internet.  I can connect to either 2.4 or 5.0 directly from my laptop with no problem at all and have access to the internet.  Encryption is disabled.  It worked with encryption but I turned it off to troubleshoot this AP problem.

It should be simple but I must be doing something wrong.  BTW is there a way to scan for network devices from the router or the access point?  I tried discovering each device with the wireless setup button on each device but they don't recognize each other so I'm configuring this manually.

So the DAP has access point enabled and 802.11 is running in mixed mode.  I've tried different variations but nothing has worked.  I've tried 20 mhz and 20-40 auto mhz channels but same problem.  Wireless security is off for troubleshooting at the moment.

DHCP server is disabled and I've assigned the DAP an available ip from the router's dhcp range.  I can connect to the DAP both wirelessly and hard wired.  The problem is that it can't seem to connect to the router.  So my laptop can connect to the router and ha internet access.  And it can also connect to the DAP but does not have internet access.  The ip is showing auto configuration 169.x.x.x when connected to the DAP so I'm not getting an ip.  Is the router supposed to assign the ip to my laptop through the DAP?  But again, if the DAP can't communicate with the router, then that would explain why I can't get an IP.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Extending Wireless Range Of Router - Installed DAP 1522 As Bridge?

Mar 30, 2011

We currently use the DIR 655 in our home. I has a great range, and we've never had any problems. Our house is a very tall Victorian, so some areas don't get as strong a signal as others. I'd like to set up a few addition devices to extend the coverage of our network.

I installed a DAP 1522 as a bridge to our entertainment PC. After a while of trying to sort out how to configure it everything is working there. The 1522 is connected to the PC via cable.

I still want to extend the overall wireless range to better cover the lower floors and back porch.

From reading the manual on the 1522 I am a bit confused. I understand how it works as a bridge, connecting devices via cable. Will it also extend the range is set as an Access Point without needing the devices to connect via cable?

TP-Link 3G/3.75G Router :: TL-MR3420 / Dual-Cell Radio Surf Sticks 50% Slower Than On PC?

May 1, 2013

Region : Ireland
Model : TL-MR3420
Hardware Version : V2
Firmware Version :
ISP : Vodafone

I have a Vodafone K4605 surf stick (same as Huawei E372). It is a dual-cell radio modem so in normal conditions it will have throughput speeds twice that of a normal single radio, such as a phone or older previous gen stick. When I connect it to my PC and install the software that comes with it I can get 18Mb/s downstream. But when I connect it to my current router (draytek 2830np) I only get 9Mb/s so I'm guessing it is not using the two radios and aggregating the connection. So I have two questions. My main one is if the K4605/E372 needs a special modem string for it to work properly, and my second is does the TL-MR3420 have this issue or could I get the full 18Mb. Also I might be getting a K5006 soon which has three radios. Would the TL-MR3420 support that also and give me 27Mb?

D-Link DAP-1522 - Unable To Log On After Network Changes

Sep 30, 2011

I recently had a networking guy set up a VPN for me, but for it to work properly he had to change all my IP addresses to 192.168.10.xx from 192.168.0.xx. My DAP-1522 (in bridge mode) continued to work but I am unable to log on to it, I think because it's address is I have run into some other issues which makes me think I may need to upgrade the DAP-1522 firmware and/or assign it an address beginning with 192.168.10.xx, however I can't log on to the bridge. (Nor do I know how to change or possible reassign the DAP-1522's address through my router, a DIR-615).

D-Link DAP-1522 :: Not Connecting To DIR-815 Properly?

Apr 26, 2011

My problem is two-fold:

1. the DAP-1522 will not connect to the 5GHz network of the DIR-815. Although, this doesn't surprise me as none of my 5GHz-capable devices see it, other than intermittently and at low signal. It is most likely an issue with the 815's 5GHz radio/network.

2. OTOH, the 1522 does appear to connect to the 815's 2.4GHz network just fine. However, there is no Internet access for any of the devices connected to the 1522's ports.

I know the 1522 can work correctly on 2.4GHz, as it previously did fine with my prior 2Wire router from AT&T. (I've just switched to Comcast, using the DIR-815 connected to their SMC modem.)

Also, I know the router and modem work fine (at least with 2.4GHz), as all of my wireless devices connect easily and with screaming bandwidth to the router and Internet.
