The DAP-1330 is an almost complete copy of the DAP-1620 from design to functionality, with a box design and two foldable antennas, the 100- 240V, WPS button and signal strength indicator on the top, LAN port, ...
D-Link DAP-1330 looks exactly like brother DAP-1620.
However, aimed at a segment of users (in terms of price points) as well as other demand, installation (in terms of speed required), D-Link has deftly reduced the AC standard on the DAP- 1620 to 802.11n on the DAP-1330.
And yet, according to the manufacturer, the DAP-1330 only supports up to 300Mbps data rates and operates only on the 2.4GHz band.
Like the DAP-1620 brother, the Gigabit Ethernet LAN port on the DAP-1330 provides stable performance for a wired device such as a desktop computer, Smart TV, gaming console, or network storage device. Operates in Repeater mode, or this is the input of the Internet signal line (when operating in Access Point mode).
Similar to some Wi-Fi routers and APs, the D-Link DAP-1330 3 also offers a variety of configurations, including Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), QRS Mobile and browser- This makes it easy for users to get their device ready for use.
So if you are an amateur, all you need to do is press the WPS button each time you want to resume / extend the wave of a certain Wi-Fi router in your home or office.
More specifically, after plugging the DAP-1330 directly into the power supply and waiting for a moment until the light on the chassis slowly slows down, press the WPS button on the front of this unit.
At this point, you continue to press the WPS button on the Wi-Fi Router to expand / resume. Then wait for a moment until the WPS light turns blue and the "off" tone lights up, meaning that the configuration is complete.
From now on, the original Wi-Fi network will be "straightforward" to the DAP-1330 with a new SSID - but with the -EXT suffix), both encrypted and password-preserved.
In addition to the signal light, the DAP-1330 will display the wave level corresponding to the wave quality (three levels) that the device "gains" at the present time. Thanks to that, users can easily select the most suitable location for this device. In other words, the LED shows the strength of the original Wi-Fi signal.
Therefore, when operating in Access Point mode, it is obvious that the signal lights will be in the "not displayed" mode.
In case you feel that WPS is not enough, you can still configure DAP-1330 more professionally without using a PC, which is through the QRS mobile application provided by D-Link. on the Google Play Store and the App Store.
Accordingly, in the main interface of the QRS mobile, the application will allow users to customize some settings corresponding to the way forward / extend the desired wave.
More specifically, if you want the DAP-1330 to work in Repeater mode, you just need to select the Repeater interface and make the settings provided by the QRS mobile application, such as SSID name, password, password manager. (admin).
For Access Point mode, you need to connect the network cable to the DAP-1330, then make the settings in the Access Point interface that can route to the Internet.
In addition, the final way to configure the DAP-1330 is to use the Setup Wizard when accessing the configuration page based on the information provided by the manufacturer in the accompanying documentation.
The DAP-1330's default DAP-1330 login password is printed on the details tag and a tag provides configuration information.
At this point, the first time you access the DAP-1330, the Setup Wizard will automatically appear and show you how to configure the device.

In addition, you can customize some of the advanced settings built into the DAP-1330, such as configuring the SSID (Settings> Extender), some network settings (Settings> Network), backing up all configuration information, ...
Not to stop there, to test the coverage of the DAP-1330 over a distance of 7 meters with a wall / wall obstruction, Choosing the test in the environment is a two-story house using the road FiberVNN 30Mbps transmission (theory) and DAP-1330 wave strength measurement with Speed Test (customized with the Host) on a smartphone.
As a result, not only Speed Test results at 5.07Mbps Download and 11.88Mbps Upload but smooth Internet access, web browsing and YouTube video playback are few shocking, picture (lag).
|Speed Test results at a distance of 7 meters.|
As such, the DAP-1330 has proven to deliver a very affordable Wi-Fi coverage for home and small office.
