1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible product
I tried to use this as an extender for a D-Link 624 router. It works fine for around a half hour, then loses the connection to the router, disabling the internet connection of all computers on the wireless network. Repeated hard resets and rerunning of the setup utility are required to get it to work for another half hour before it dies again. Updating the firmware had no effect, and I don't have time to mess with tech support, so I returned it to Amazon. Instead, I bought a Hawking HAI15S directional antenna for my D-Link router, which improved my signal significantly, obviating the need for this range extender. It's also much cheaper.

1-0 out of 5 stars What More Can I Do For D-Link
At this point, about 5 days after receiving the range extender, I have spent more time on the phone with tech support than I have with my family. And it still doesn't work. The config is easy, but it still doesn't work. Power up, power down, reset. And it still doesn't work. The first level techs say they don't understand (with an accent). The second level can never be found. The third level only works M-F 9-5. Well, so do I, and I can't dedicate my entire life to making myself available at D-Link's convenience so that I can make their product work.

If they hadn't sucked the life out of me, it would have been funny. But my 624 router performance is fine if you are within 20 feet and no obstructions. As the D-link tech told me, "well, are there walls in your house?" Yes, I have one of those funny houses with walls. D-Link never figured on that. What a total, unmitigated disaster this piece of useless junk is. And I want D-Link to give me back the hours of my life lost to making its junk work.

Added 6/29/04: D-link tech finally tells me that this repeater is defective (duh). But their RMA mechanism is worse than their wares. It's a 32 step procedure that ends up costing even more money even though you've already paid for their defective equipment. If you should happen to be interrupted in the middle, you can't finish. The qualifications are ridiculous. And, as I've now found out, the defect rate on repeaters is extraordinarily high. Don't expect to get one that works on the first 3 tries.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works well, however...
After three hours and getting to the second level of Tech-Support, we were able to get this extender to work. It works very well and, really, there is NO OTHER option if you need to expand your wireless network.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Wireless Repeater
The DWL-800AP+ isn't officially supported by D-Link for repeating other brands of wireless access points. It's best to use this with D-Link APs only. I've heard of some working, but it's pretty random.

I use the DWL-G800AP as a wireless repeater repeating the signal of my DI-624 (wireless router). This repeats the 54Mbps 802.11g speeds and I find it very easy to use.
You don't need this repeater to be plugged into the network via wired connection for it to work, but you will need to when you are configuring it to work with your WLAN. Basically you plug it in, configure it, and unplug and set it in the optimum place for best repeating of the signal.
I hide mine behind a picture frame on the mantle and it works great and isn't seen.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wireless Repeater for the DI-624 Wireless Router Only
After purchasing a DI-624 and having that one raouter cover so much ground (air?) with a wireless signal I wanted to cover the rest of my expansive house with wireless internet coverage. This little box is just what I needed. First you plug this box into one of the router's open LAN ports, then access it via web browser and configure it (about 2 mins) to work with your wireless network.

This box will see the DI-624 and you just need to set it in wireless repeater mode. Then go put the little box at about the edge of where you get no more signal from the DI-624. I used my laptop for this. If the 624 reached out say 100 feet from it's base with wireless signal I set this little repeater at about the 75 foot mark to make sure it got a strong enough signal yet still add adequate coverage for the rest of my home.

It's simple enough and it works reliably. After setting up as a repeater you don't need to worry about it anymore. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars BAD but has got good points to consider
The DMP90 has a lot of cons but have pros that you may reconsider.For the Pros, first of all, it is cheap. Almost every average income family would do. Price over everything !!. It is quite good consider for the money you pay for it. For those who have old computers but have no usb, don't worry, no usb needed. Just parrellel port. It comes with a comprehensive manual and not-so-bad software.
For the cons, there's a lot but i'll name a few. It has this distortion sound. It is quite audible if you listen to music softly. then the dmp is really battery draining. I suggest you use rechargeable ones. then there is the compatibility problem. it doesn't support windows xp. so if have to be stuck with win me or win98. (i learned that the hard way). this thing can only support one format which is MP3. you can't download firmwares or drivers to upgrade. so you would be stuck with an MP3 player forever.and last but not least. it's transparent cover. you can see all the ugly chips and some rusty parts. in terms of product support, i haven't try it because the dmp works like a trusted servant.
On overall, it is suitable for extremely low end users. Which are those who don't mind the cons as long as it is cheap, portable and able to play songs.Definitely not for power-sumers!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, for now
Six months ago this product had an awsome price to value raito (I paid 30.00 after the 60.00 mail in rebate), however times are changing. Memory prices are falling, and you can buy a player with 64 MB for 90.00 to 200.00 , and many of these include a radio and USB connection. The point, this is a good product, but I would suggest you consider another, more advanced product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good value
It has good sound quality, and cool design. Although it comes with 16M memory, which is not enough. However, I spend a little more to buy a 32M card, and it has became a 48M-player. Most important is that it is still cheaper than most of the MP3 players that are selling in the market.

3-0 out of 5 stars Better than a portable radio
Well, i found this product very good for what i need to for. I basicaly use it for when i go for a ride. Although it is 16mb mp3 player, i found it good. This is because i would normally talk my walkman in my back pocket( only just fitted). This was too big and too heavy, and poor sound quality. The d-link 16mb player is light, small, and retains better sound quality. I didn't want to buy a $400 mp3 player for mountain biking, as i could easily damage it. so I went for the d-link, due to being fairly cheap. The only real problem is the 16mb of memory, but like i said it fair outways a walkman or discman....

3-0 out of 5 stars D Link 16 MB Mp3 Player
This mp3 player is a good, convienent player. It comes with 16 MB. It has good features, but the memory is limited. My friend owns one of these. The sound is good, but again, they should have included more memory. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

D-Link's DMP-CD100 CD and Recorded MP3 Player reads audio CDs and CD-Rs with MP3 formatted music files, playing over 10 hours of music on a single disc.

Searching through all those files can be a chore, so D-Link includes intro scan and a quick access button for three-digit track searches. This combination CD/MP3 player also features a 10-second antiskip buffer that grants some protection against motion-related skips, while its hold switch prevents accidental shutoff or setup change. The LCD displays playback status, program function, and battery life. Playback modes include repeat track or disc, random play, and a 22-track programmable memory.

Compatible with the MP3 standard, the DMP-CD100 supports bit-rates from 32 Kbps to 320 Kbps. Its design includes a 1-bit digital-to-analog audio converter with an integrated digital filter, producing eight times oversampling playback for high-quality audio output.

The DMP-CD100 features two stereo outputs, allowing you to connect it to an external audio component. D-link also includes earphones and an AC adapter. This unit runs on two AA alkaline or rechargeable ni-cad batteries. It's backed by a one-year parts-and-labor warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple and functional
I was originally looking for just a standard CD player. I noticed this gem which plays MP3's and decided to try it out. It works quite well. I burned a disc with 124 MP3's scattered into various folders, popped it in, and was listening to music several seconds later. I researched the product before i bought it and had read several reviews saying that the product "skipped frequently" and had "a poor laser which wouldn't read cheap discs". To test this, I bought the cheapest discs I could find and burned my MP3's onto them. No problem. In addition, skipping is minimal in MP3 play, though standard CD play benefits from the ESP (shock protection) the player provides. Several reviewers complained about a delay while MP3 discs were being read into memory, but this was actually quite fast. If you want a portable MP3 player which will handle your audio CD's, pick this up. The ability to play carry around 10 hours of music in a small package will not disappoint you. My two complaints; the unit includes an internal NiCAD battery charger, but it only ships with Alkaline batteries. Also, the earbud headphones it ships with are subpar; I use a pair of Sony headphones with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst CD-MP3 player i've seen!!
D-Link should stick to networking products...the moment i put batteries on this mp3 player, i knew something was really wrong with it...sound quality was horrible, battery life was horrible, skipped all the time, even when i pressed any button, it would reset itself all the time...i give it 1 star because i can't give it any less...DO NOT BUY THIS!!!...i returend it the next day and bought a RIO CD-MP3 player...MUCH MUCH BETTER!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Blah!
Me and this MP3 player never seemed to hit it off. It skips everywhere--even in the car--so the music I'm listening to gets interupted left and right. The battery life is horrific, the sound quality is ok, but man, what's the point if you can't walk around with your portable player if it skips? I wouldn't recommend this if you like to actually move around.

1-0 out of 5 stars Run, Run like the wind from DLink
This company's customer service is the worst. I bought an MP3 player from them in June of 2002. I've had to send it back to them twice in 11 months for replacement and/or repairs. The last time it was "fixed", it came back in worse shape than when it left.

Attempts to resolve this matter have been frustrating. Phone calls are not returned, tech support seems less than concerned with customer concerns. Proceed at your own risk. Maybe you should look at a nice Panasonic or Sony..

1-0 out of 5 stars great player for about 9 months....
I was very satisfied with the product in the beginning. I could burn my collection to about 4 CD's, and then I could go wherever I wanted, and be able to call up any song I wanted. I was especially impressed with the T-Digit function...That was 9 months ago. Things have since grown progressively worse. Now, I find that it doesn't play MP3 CD's anymore...It only plays Audio CD's now. I tried to contact the D-Link support people, and got a prompt, but unfruitful response. They told me to return it to them, and to do so by contacting the RMA department...so i cantacted the RMA department, and recieved no response...It's been over a week, and still no response! So much for customer satisfaction...If they had created a descent product, I wouldn't be dissatisfied, and I would be writing this review with a seriously different tone... ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great player, a few problems
I purchased this MP3 player cheap. It's a great deal. It has a voice recorder, good quality, large buttons, the EQ adjustment. There are only a few downsides to it.

1. The parallel port connection. The downloads are a bit slow - maybe about 15 seconds for a normal song. Plus, you may have your printer hooked up to the parallel port. 2. On my songs, the lengths of the songs show up completely wrong. Some songs are reported to be "00:00" long, some are about "15 minutes long." But the playback is correct. 3. They need a backlight for the LCD display.

Overall, the player is great and cheaper than most. If you're not too picky, go ahead and get it. You won't regret it.

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT MP3 Player, just short on memory
When I first bought the device, I couldn't figure out how to download songs into the player. I spent 30 minutes on hold with the customer service dept. before they explained how to set the parallel port to "ECP MODE".

After that, downloads were not a problem. I was a bit disspointed that 32mb's translates to about 8 songs (max.) But the sound quality is TERRIFIC. One of the nicer features is the built-in equalizer.

When I bought my new computer with Windows Me, I encountered major conflicts with the D-link software. Their customer service suggested I download the D'music software that was tailored for Windows Me. For some strange reason, I could only download music with the D'music software once, before my DELL computer had conflicts with their software. Despite all the trouble I've gone through with this little device, I give it FOUR STARS because D-Link's website now features downloadable software for all platforms (i.e. Windows Me, 2000 etc...) I download a fresh set of songs into my mp3 player daily now.

But if you're thinking about buying an MP3 player, buy one with MORE built in memory - although the cost may be 50-60 dollars more than this one, you should consider the cost of a compact flash card - 32mb... Wouldn't it be easier to just have it built in? The choice is yours!

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY
DO NOY BUY THIS PRODUCT
1ST IT CAN ONLY TAKE 1 MORE 32MB CARD
2ND ITS HARD 2 SET UP

SO SAVE UR MONEY AND BUY SOMETHING BETTER ....

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a very good product
We've had this player for about a year and it has begun to short out. We really didn't use it that often, the only reason we got this one was it was offered with a rebate which put it (at a good price) at the time. Should have waited and done more research.

2-0 out of 5 stars Sounds okay...but it's design needs work
While the sound quality coming out of the devise is okay...the devise its self (...).

First, The battery cover on the back, is only held shut by a little plastic tab, easily broken with moderate use.

Second, There is no USB support for this product. The only way to transfer music is via a slow serial connection.

Third, While it takes only two batteries, it ought to take more. This thing is a major battery drainer, I can only get 3-4 hours of one charge.

Fourth, No backlight LCD screen. Makes it somewhat hard to see what song is selected in the dark.

Fifth, Only 32mb of space on the player, and while you can get more space with smartmedia cards, a 64mb smart media card costs almost as much as the mp3 player its self.

I would not recommend this player to anyone, unless you are sort of pressed on money. But there are other mp3 players under 200 dollars that are a lot better quality and have more features. ... Read more
