Which Mode Should I Use?
Access Point Mode - Upgrade your wireless connection
Use Access Point mode if you want to connect wireless devices such as laptops, tablets, smart phones, and media players
to your wired network (via router or switch). Use this mode to upgrade your wireless network to the latest wireless
technology to boost performance and coverage.
Installation Tip:
If you already have a WPS-ready wireless router or access point, you can use the One Touch AP Configuration to copy
your existing wireless settings to the DAP-1525. You can then disable the wireless function in your existing wireless router
or AP to avoid wireless interference. If you do not have an existing wireless router or AP with WPS, use Manual Setup.
