For those with multiple Pokestops within your home or office, catching Pokemons and topping up Pokeballs can be a breeze just walking up and down your own premises.

However, a strong wireless connection is necessary and it may not always be available for large homes or offices or if the layout of your premise has many thick walls or doors.

For my home, the problem lies with the many layers of thick walls. To solve the issue? Get a wireless Wi-Fi extender!

D-Link, global leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of advanced networking, broadband, digital, voice and data communications solutions, recently introduced their new Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Range Extender DAP-1620 into the Singapore market.

This compact device is ideal for use at home or a small office, as it does not take up much space and is ready to use by simply plug it in:

I was provided with a test unit to try out and it works well for me. Upon unboxing, I am delighted that the device is so small it can inside my palm!

The bright signal Indicator LED makes it easy for you to find a suitable spot to connect the extender. Just locate a spot that can give you three green bars:


Here’s a tip – if the signal is weak, the DAP-1620 should be relocated to a wall outlet closer to the source wireless router.

The diminutive wall-plug design of the DAP-1620 saves you the hassle of dealing with a power cord and gives a clean look that blends easily with white power sockets.

Set up is simple. There is no need for a computer as you can use the supported QRS Mobile app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch or Android mobile device to set up the DAP-1620 easily.

Alternatively, you can use D-Link’s one-touch configuration by pushing the WPS push-button on the DAP-1620 and on the router or AP you want to extend, and the DAP-1620 will automatically configure itself for you.

The product includes a built-in setup wizard that lets you configure it wirelessly with a PC or mobile device.
