Wireless N Dualband Access Point and Ethernet Bridge
The DAP-1522 allows you to easily upgrade any router to support streaming of High-Definition (HD) multimedia content in your home over a wireless connection. This device will let you ‘bridge’ between two different physical media, for example the wired Ethernet connection from the DVR and the wireless media of your wireless network. It transforms your wired device into a wireless one without any hassles of stringing cable wires.

High Definition performance
The DAP-1522 allows you to easily upgrade any router to support streaming of High-Definition (HD) multimedia content over a wireless connection. Connect up to four Ethernet-enabled devices of your entertainment center to the DAP-1522, such as game consoles, Digital Video Recorders (DVR), and Digital Media Adapters (DMA) simultaneously. You can also upgrade your network to support dualband wireless streaming by connecting a DAP-1522 to your router.

Expansion into the clear 5 GHz radio spectrum
The 5 GHz radio frequency is wider and less crowded than the 2.4GHz radio frequency used by most wireless devices (including consumer devices such as cordless phones, baby monitors, bluetooth adapters etc) today. With up to 23 non-overlapping channels available on the 5GHz radio band, compared to only 3 on the 2.4 GHz band, users are sure to experience the full speed needed to run even the most delay sensitive applications, such as streaming multiple HD videos across the network.

Simplified wireless security
The DAP-1522 is certified for the Wi-Fi Alliance’s standard for wireless security at the touch of a button, Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS). With it, the wireless network name (SSID) and encryption keys are automatically generated and broadcast to the client devices. There is no need to memorize complicated passwords and key them in several times. This considerably simplifies the process of setting up security on the wireless network.
