D-Link DAP-1520 Wifi Extender Compatibility to Cisco DPC3925
I am looking for guidance on the subject mentioned.
I have a Starhub issued Cisco model (DPC3925) modem & router. Unfortunately, there are areas in my residence where I experience a low wifi signal and hence would like to increase the coverage by installing a Wifi Extender.
I spoke to the Starhub customer service officer (Shobha) manning the Starhub cable broadband technical helpline seeking guidance on the compatible device but as expected, she was of absolutely no help choosing instead to ask me to call Cisco.
I proceeded to do some online research on Wifi Extenders and settled for DLink DAP-1520 Wireless AC750 Dual Band Range Extender as it supported both the 2.4GHz (same as my modem/router) and 5GHz bands.
I bought the device, followed the instructions but was unable to sync it with the Starhub issued Cisco modem/router. Based on this thread, it doesn't come as a surprise it didn't sync despite trying both the WPS or the manual set-up instructions provided!
Any ideas if the DLink wifi extender mentioned is compatible to the modem/router I have been issued? If it is, any tips on how to troubleshoot it to connect to my main router? In the event it is not compatible, any idea which brand/model of wifi extender is compatible?
Thanks in advance!
