DAP-2660, anybody worked with D-Link WAP

Recommended Posts

Kevin that looks like an interesting device however I have never used it so I cant comment on it other then looking at the specs it is only a 2X2 MIMO vs the Open-Mesh MR1750 that I use is a 3X3 MIMO for the max Rx & Tx power it looks like D-Link and Open-Mesh are the same of 26dBm. The only other difference I saw was with D-Link you have to host the controller software where as Open-Mesh the controller is hosted for you free of charge. I wonder what would happen with the D-Link WAP if the controller was not running? The other thing I noticed with D-Link is the 3 mounting options, I like the fact you can just sit it on a tabletop and you done. The last and final thing I saw is price, @156.99 on Amazon that's cheap, The Open-Mesh will run you 225.00. Have you ever used/tried Open-Mesh? If not you should take a hard look at it as well, It is a great performing product. http://www.open-mesh.com/products/access-points/mr1750-ac-cloud-access-point.html The only negative with it right now is there seems to be a problem with iOS devices but pcdoc is working with the support people to get it worked out with firmware updates. If you have not been following a thread that I started about Open-Mesh you can read all about it here http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/9901-open-mesh-has-released-there-new-mr1750-dual-band-80211ac-access-point/

If you do decide to try the D-Link please post back and let us know how its working for you.

 

For anyone interested in the D-Link product we are talking about then here is a short Youtube video about it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=he-aJYiRmos

Thanks

I am trying to use products at home that I could also review for HSS. The D-Link fit that category and as odd as it seems, I cant remember owning any D-Link product in recent memory. I also have access to one of these, but enterprise products can be a bit of a chore to manage:
