I think I was having a similar problem with my DAP-1522 ... FW Version 1.10 being used as an access point. I recently discovered that I was not able to connect to the configuration pages using a web browser by typing in it's IP address (192.168.0.50). When I originally set this up device up on my network, it worked just fine, but at some point in time, it stopped working. My solution to this problem was to set the switch on the back of the 1522 from Auto to AP, then re-boot the DAP-1522 by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging power back in. Once the AP re-booted, I was then able to access the configuration login page by typing 192.168.0.50 into my browser. My DAP-1522 access point is connected via port 1 to my D-link router, a DGL-4100, via a DGS-2208, 8 port gigabit switch. Hope this helps!

Assuming that all settings are still at factory defaults... It's likely that to connect to the device through the web browser or through the app, you will have to temporarily assign your PCs network card a static IP address that is in the same range as the router (for example: 192.168.0.10). The user name should be admin and the password should be left blank. Make sure to plug your router directly to your PCs LAN port with an ethernet cable.
This article on the extremetech website explains exactly how to do what you are trying to do:
In case the previous link has too much info, here's another site that simply tells how to access the manual settings of the router through the browser: http://www.paraesthesia.com/archive/2010/05/04/connect-to-the-d-link-dap-1522-access-point-configuration-manually.aspx
If you go through these steps and still can't communicate with the device, it's likely that router's default configuration has been modified and you will have to reset the router to factory settings to get it back to the defaults. Then you may proceed as listed above.
To reset (if necessary) follow these instuctions on the D-Link website:
I know it's a lot of stuff, but I hope this helps. It can be frustrating, but you'll get through it.

HOLY $hit !!!!! This worked!!!!
I've wasted a whole day trying to figure this out (... and I'm fairly good at computers, but this was a 8itch).
This works for Windows 7 (64-bit version, updated as of March 21, 2011).
DLink DAP-1522 Xtreme N Duo
Part Number: CAP1522ACA...A1
Hardware ver.: A1
Firmware ver.: 1.21
IP Address: 192.168.0.50
Follow the instructions mentioned above to the T.
The following information maybe long-winded but I hope some of this additional info helps others who are having a SON-OF-A-8ITCH, like I did.
I've also disabled the wireless adapter on my laptop. You don't need Wireless connection, since you will be using the network cable (mostly the BLUE cable (CAT5), maybe a different color too, still trying to look for pink, hehehe).
YES, you MUST connect your computer to the DLink DAP-1522 using the network cable. Use any port on the back of the DLink DAP-1522 and to your laptop/computer.
My Network Settings had two Internet TCP/IP Protocol's (ver4 and ver6). I made the changes to the ver4 TCP/IP Protocol (and NOT the ver6).
I also unchecked several of the other items, which only left the following CHECKED:
\' client for MS networks
\' QoS packet scheduler
\' File and printer sharing for MS networks
\' Internet protocol version 4 (TCIP/IPver4)
...... sorry for the \' above. This is my symbol for a "check mark."
Not sure if this matters... but these are some of the things I've also done....
- the switch on the back of my DLink DAP-1522 is set to "BRIDGE."
- I didn't need to push the button on the top of the DLink DAP-1522.
- My Windows Network connection is a "public network" (with no internet).
- Windows Firewall is ON.
- I did not flash to a newer version of Firmware (still have 1.21).
You will notice the network icon in the tray has a yellow <!> but don't worry because we know there is no Internet access, all we want is just a link connection to the DLink DAP-1522 Bridge so we can get into the web-based GUI of the DLink SAP-1522 Bridge, and play.
Once you gain access to the DLink DAP-1522 built-in Web Browser, by opening Internet Explorer and typing the address 192.168.0.50 you will be shown the Log-In page.
