Connect Multiple Devices
The Wireless Bridge feature of the DAP-1522 allows you to easily connect up to 4 Ethernet-enabled devices in your entertainment center to your wireless network. Connect devices such as Game Consoles, Digital Video Recorders (DVR), and Digital Media Adapters (DMA) to the built-in 4-Port Gigabit Switch.
Create A Wireless Network
Create a new wireless network using the Access Point feature by connecting the DAP-1522 to an existing wired network. Use your new wireless network to stream high-definition (HD) video, play multiplayer games, or make phone calls (VoIP) using the built-in dual band technology.
See a larger schematic image example of a home network setup for optimizing use of the DAP-1522's dual-band capabilities.
5 GHz Technology
The DAP-1522 has selectable 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. 5 GHz is ideal for wirelessly streaming multiple HD videos across your network. The less-crowded 5GHz band is ideal for wirelessly streaming HD videos across your network, helping avoid interference by providing a clearer wireless band for transferring HD signals and other bandwidth intensive network applications. And it helps avoid interference by providing a clearer wireless band for HD signals than existing 2.4 GHz products.
What This Product Does
Wireless Bridge Mode
Use the Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge / Access Point (DAP-1522) to connect up to 4 Ethernet-enabled devices such as Game Consoles, Digital Video Recorders (DVR), and Digital Media Adapters (DMA) to your wireless network.
Access Point Mode
Connect the DAP-1522 to an existing wired network and easily enable wireless connectivity in your home. This scenario can place a DAP-1522 as both a 'send' and 'receive' unit, with one connected at the router where the broadband connection comes in and the other at the home entertainment center or wherever there is a need to connect one or more wired devices. Use your new wireless network to stream HD multimedia content, play multiplayer games, or make Internet phone calls (VoIP).
