Wireless access point units, or WAPs, are becoming a little outdated. These days, routers come so packed with features that they’re oozing out of the LAN ports. So why would you want a bricky-looking D-Link device on your table when you already have a router cluttering it?

Well, there are several reasons. For one, the DWL-2100AP Wireless Access Point can function as a Wi-Fi range extender in case you’re unable or willing to get a standalone one. Most routers can cover Wi-Fi inside a home well enough, but anything beyond that and the YouTube video starts loading real slow-like.

Past that, the DWL-2100AP can provide wireless functionality to routers that don’t have it. Yes, those still exist. Yes, those are still in use. And if you’re using one, you probably don’t want to switch to a newer model, making this device pretty handy. There’s plenty of other features, such as bridging, connection monitoring and so on.

Sounds pretty complex, huh? You bet it is. Yet, for some reason, the manufacturer didn’t include the D-Link DWL-2100AP manual with one of the most complex devices in its line. We can’t guess as to why. Maybe they figure whoever’s using it is tech-savvy enough to talk to electronic devices?

Where can I get a direct link to the D-Link DWL-2100AP user manual?

What’s worse, the manual can be quite difficult to find online. D-Link themselves don’t have it on their site, almost as if they’re daring the users to find the instructions. We love a challenge, so we went ahead and found the real D-Link DWL-2100AP user manual and uploaded it to our direct download site. You’re one click away from figuring out how to configure this pesky thing: http://sharedf.com/documentation/d-link-dwl-2100ap-user-manual/
