    This product should ONLY be installed by an experienced installer who is familiar with local building and safety codes and where ever applicable, is licensed by the appropriate authorities. Failure to do so may void the D-Link product warranty and may expose the end user or the service provider to legal and financial liabilities. D-Link and its resellers or distributors are not liable for injury, damage, or violation of regulations associated with the installation of outdoor units or antennas.
  • Page 9: Installation Considerations

    The D-Link DAP-3520 lets you access your network, using a wireless connection, from virtually anywhere within its operating range. Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range. Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home or business. The key to maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines: Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the DAP-3520 and other network devices to a minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce your DAP-3520’s range by 3-90 feet (1-30 meters). Position your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized. Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (0.5 meters), at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle, the wall appears to be over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position your devices so that the signal will travel straight through a wall or ceiling - instead of at an angle - for better reception.
