NTK – Wireless Repeating with the D-Link DWL-900AP+

Wrapping Up

So there you have it. Yes, D-Link really has made wireless repeating available for under $100! Sure, it has some compromises and limitations, but they won't last long. If the same thing happens as when bridging features were first added to Access Points, I'd expect to see the other guys (Linksys, NETGEAR, and SMC) respond soon, hopefully with little tweaks and improvements.

So the days of Cisco and Symbol having a high-priced monopoly on wireless repeaters will soon draw to a close... at least as far as the non-enterprise wireless market is concerned. We can finally sit where we want to sit, make our wireless LANs come to us, and not break the bank doing it. Hallelujah!
