D-Link DAP-2660 A2

Under Construction!
This page is currently under construction. You can edit the article to help completing it.

The D-Link DAP-2660 is a dualband Access Point with a single ethernet port and POE from the D-Link DAP Series of Business Access Points, manufactured by Alpha Networks.

FIXME Any text with a light background (like this one) provides instructions for creating the Details Page. When you have filled in correct/useful information (instead of any template that's there) remove the instructions, as well as the <WRAP> that encloses it.

FIXME

  1. This is an empty template that suggests the information that should be present on a well-constructed Device Page. This means, that you have to fill it with life and information.
  2. There are several “fixme” tags with text on a light background (like this text) throughout this template. As you fill in the page, remove those tags so that people can judge its completeness.
  3. When there are no more “fixme” tags left, delete this one too, along with the <WRAP> that encloses it.
  • Please include only model specific information, omit bla,bla and put everything generic into separate articles
  • If you have no time to write certain stuff, link to docs
  • base-system should lead the way, do not explain this again
  • DO NOT provide a complete howto here! Instead groom the general documentation.

Note: This will void your warranty!

To open the device

  • Remove the four screws on the backside
  • The cover has one or two clips on each edge. Start at the edge near the LED.
  • Press the lower part with the thumb and try to loosen the clip.
  • When some clips break, no problem, the screws are sufficient to hold the cover well. (looks like the clips are more like a warranty void indicator)
