Faster Wi‑Fi, Faster Business

The DAP‑2680 Wireless AC1750 Wave 2 Dual‑Band PoE Access Point features cutting‑edge Wave 2 technology that brings greater speeds, efficiency, and security to your wireless customers. Perfect for small to medium business or enterprise environments.

D-Link DAP-2680 Wireless AC1750 Wave 2 Dual-Band PoE Access Point

Be the best with Wave 2

Boost your business network to maximum wireless signal rates of up to 450 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band, and 1300 Mbps over the 5 GHz band1.


Beamforming with MU‑MIMO

Beamforming focuses the Wi-Fi signal to improve both range and connection strength so your clients can enjoy a superior Wi-Fi experience. Built-in Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MU-MIMO) technology gets high-bandwidth Wi-Fi signals to multiple devices simultaneously, for faster data distribution and efficiency.

The Perfect Fit for Your Network

Multiple operational modes allow you to select the DAP-2680 to operate as an access point, a Wireless Distribution System (WDS), a WDS with access point, or a wireless client.

Business Quality of Service

The Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) and Quality of Service (QoS) features make it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications. When enabled, QoS allows the DAP-2680 to automatically prioritise network traffic. Customised priority rules can be adjusted through the web GUI. AP Load Balancing limits the maximum number of users per access point to ensure maximum performance.

MU-MIMO for improved business WiFi performance

Easy‑mount setup

It can be ceiling mounted, wall mounted or placed on a desk. Integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) enables the device to be deployed easily and in more areas, where power outlets are not readily available.


Easy access point mounting options

Corporate‑Class Security

Secure your business network with Personal and Enterprise versions WPA2 (802.11i), with support for RADIUS server backend or a built‑in internal RADIUS server. MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID broadcast disable, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling further protect your wireless network.

It supports up to eight VLANs per band, allowing multiple SSIDs to segment users. Includes a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication. Additionally, it supports Network Access Protection (NAP), a feature of Windows Server® 2008 and upwards, allowing network administrators to define multiple levels of network access based on an individual client’s needs.

1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11 and 802.11ac specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors may adversely affect wireless signal range.
2 Please note that operating frequency ranges vary depending on the regulations of individual countries and jurisdictions. The DAP‑2680 may not support the 5.25 ‑ 5.35 GHz and 5.47 ‑ 5.725 GHz frequency ranges in certain regions.
3 For the EU region, this product is compliant with CE regulations and operates within the following frequency ranges: 2.4 ‑ 2.4835 GHz, 5.150 ‑ 5.250 GHz, 5.250 ‑ 5.350 GHz, and 5.470 ‑ 5.750 GHz.
