The N300 D-Link Wi-Fi signal Range Extender includes a built-in setup wizard that lets users configure it both wired and wirelessly with a mobile device.

Alternatively, with one-touch configuration function users have to push the WPS push-button on the DAP-1325 and switch on the router or AP one wants to extend. While DAP-1325 will automatically configure itself.

D-Link has announced the DAP-1325, an N300 Wi-Fi range extender. DAP-1325 is a portable plug-in repeater that lets one extend an existing wireless network. Place it anywhere in the home to extend the range of wireless network. Supporting Wireless N, N300 Wi-Fi range extender claims to offer connection speeds of up to 300 Mbps, while still compatible with existing wireless devices.

Design

wireless network
The DAP-1320 looks like a power adapter—it’s only 2.11 by 1.65 by 1.89 inches (HWD)  with two prongs, and it plugs directly into an electrical outlet. This simple yet powerful piece of wireless technology has just a single WPS button on its side and one LED to show your connection status.

The extender is single-band only, so it won’t extend 5GHz Wi-Fi, which is perfectly okay because it’s the 2.4GHz band that can travel the longer distance.

Included in the package are a quick install guide and a card that has the extender’s default SSID and password as well as the URL to the web-based GUI printed on it.

Performance

d-link
Not only can We sing the praises of the device’s incredibly easy setup, but it also delivered praiseworthy performance. It extended router’s signal to an area throughput never reaches, a real dead spot that testing software, IxChariot, typically registers as 0 Mbps. From 150 feet away from the extender, in an environment saturated with access points, D-Link’s little extender still managed .4 Mbps of throughput. Yes, that’s not even 1 Mbps of speed, but it was enough to browse the Internet—slowly, but reasonably. While the BearExtender PC Long Range 802.11n USB WiFi Booster gave faster speed at a distance of 100 feet, it dropped the signal at 150 feet.

 

Extended Excellence

D-Link Wireless Range Extender gets a 4.5 out of 5-star rating and is PCMag’s Editors’ Choice for wireless range extenders.
