D-Link DAP-1320 – extend the range of your WiFi network with the push of a button

dlinkdap1320

Wireless networks are more than just a luxury nowadays, they’re a necessity. Nothing beats being able to connect your phone or computer to the Internet from anywhere in your home, except it’s not always that easy is it? Those pesky walls, ceilings and other obstructions can often spoil the range over which the WiFi is effective, and make a mockery of all those marketing claims in the brochure. Checking emails in a draughty corridor is not fun, amirite?

D-Link has just introduced a new wireless range extender called the D-Link DAP-1320 (catchy name, huh?) which is designed to deliver high speed net connection to hard to reach places like basements, outdoor areas, lofts and suchlike. This type of tech is not new of course, but we like the idea of a simple push button install that this product gives.

Plug the thing into a socket close to the problem area, press the WPS button (and do the same on the router) and they’ll sync together automatically, after which you’re going to see a lot more bars on your WiFi signal in that basement den. Or something. There’s also a web browser interface for more custom configuration. The product is currently on special offer at $49.99 from the D-Link site.
