    I have a WNDR3700 connected to a wired network that I access through wireless. When I get pretty far away from the WNDR3700 I loose the ability to connect and I was thinking if I could extend the wireless network by adding a DAP-1522.

    I want to have the WNDR3700 and the DAP-1522 connected via wireless and using a laptop I want to be able to access the wired network from anywhere in the facility.

    Can this be done and could you guys tell me step by step how to do it, I will definitely appreciate.

    Hi,

    For best performance is good to have cable installed between WNDR3700 and d-link access point at remote location. All those repeaters, extenders and wireless distribution systems affects wireless performance.

    So how you recommend I should set the 1522, as an access point or a bridge?
    Any suggestions on how to do it are welcome.

    In case if you connect cable from netgear to DAP - access point, end point network will be wireless, same as distributed by netgear

    If Bridge used you will get end point by cable, but DAP will connect to netgear by wireless channel.

    So by changing access point to bridge you changing WAN port from cable to WLAN.
