    Pros: I use two of these in WDS bridge mode
    - When it works, works extremely well
    - For what it is, simple to configure
    - Powerful signal
    - 90% of the time ~1 ms ping
    Cons: - 10% of the time (in chunks) ping jumps to 500+ ms. Can not identify any interference, and happens all day long and night also so doesn't seem to be external
    - dlink support tells me devices must be minimum of 30' apart, otherwise they will interfere with each other. Mine are 20' and harder to get further than that.
    - not "true" dual band, must operate in either 5 or 2.4ghz. This disqualified it from being the general AP in the household

    Easy set up and connection. Was up and running quickly. I was helping the in laws with a new computer and printer and set up the new and old computers plus a wireless printer with no issues connecting to this access point.

    Pros: 5 month uptime now with heavy media streaming and not even a hiccup... Multiple SSIDs, VLANs and RADIUS running.
    Great range, about 25% better than the Cisco/Linksys one I was using before.
    Cons: Not a true dualband.

    Great range, about 25% better than the Cisco/Linksys one I was using before. Not a true dualband. Great AP for the price, and unless you really NEED dualband, pick this up.

    Like others said, you can only use one of the two bands at once, but other than that this is an excellent AP. Lets you run it in ''WDS & AP'' mode so that if you're…

    ... randomly lockup etc, it was a nightmare. If you want a good solid reliable AP, this will do you good. The web interface is simple and easy to use as well. ...

    Pros: It configures relatively easily. Fast speeds and good range.
    Cons: PSA/PSA2 does not work on the N network with the Intel WiFi 5300, Intel WiFi 5100 or LinkSys USB N wireless card. I could not get the "four way handshake" to authenticate. The only way I could connect on either band is by turning off security. D-link's tech support is non-responsive.

I could not get the "four way handshake" to authenticate. The only way I could connect on either band is by turning off security. D-link's tech support is non-responsive. I read the d-link forums and tried all sorts of security combination with various different WiFi cards. It does not work in dual band mode, you need to choose 2.4 or 5MHz. I was able to get it to work great with no security but that kinda defeats the purpose. I ended up returning it and paying a restocking fee even though it is clearly a bad implementation of PSA/PSA2.
