Connecting D-Link DWL 3200 AP as a wireless extender to D-Link DSL-2640T

My ADSL modem and a WiFi router is a D-Link DSL-2640T. I need to extend the range of the wireless coverage so i got a D-Link DWL 3200 AP device. Now i failed (i tried everything to the best of my knowledge) to operate the 3200 AP as a wireless extender to the 2640T (in other words as a repeater, a signal magnifier,...etc). The point is that i need to make this totally wireless and as per the manual, it says that the 3200 AP can operate in what they call the WDS(Wireless Distribution System)mode with AP in which it can bridge connections and at the same time act as an Access point.

The questions are :

1- In Principle is it possible? i.e. to use the 3200AP as an extender to the 2640T, totally wireless?
2- Can someone please assist me with the steps to do so?

Thanks very much in advance.

I set up a 10,000 sq. ft site with these units . I had to use 2 units. . One unit actually had to be linked to the router via the Power over Ethernet base. Then it would broadcast the signal to the other unit.
I would suggest that you call D -Link, they have very good support.

How can I connect to my D-Link AP 3200


Hi There,
When you connect to the AP, does it ask for a Username and Password?
Username: admin
Password: "Blank"
Are you connecting to 192.168.0.50?
Are your Computer Settings correct for that IP Connection?
You would want to set you Computer with Static IP settings:

IP: 192.168.0.2
Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.50
DNS: 8.8.8.8

Do hope this helps!

Your connection is limited


What router and where is it that you are connecting the Extender to? An extender is not a router. You need a router to extend the wifi signal from.

I am having Wirless A/G Outdoor AP/Bridge "DWL-7700AP" how to configur with Direct ADSL line 192.168.0.50 d-Link IP


For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
If still not able to access it then you need to reset it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
WAN settings are your internet service provider settings if you want to know wireless settings then click on wireless then you can find your wireless settings .
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Cant get accesss to the configuration window


In order to get to the AP, and assuming you just plugged it in, you need to put everything in the 192.168.0.x domain. The AP defaults to 192.168.0.50, so you need to make sure that the router gives out IP addresses that does not include 0.50, or change the IP address of the AP. Likewise, the computer you are trying to log into the AP needs to start in the 192.168.0.x domain, with x being anything but the gateway address (normally 1), or 50.

My guess is you have a router built into the modem and it is giving out different addresses. You can set your network address by hand to be 192.168.0.pick a number like 5 and plug into the ethernet port of the AP (may need a crossover) to get to it.

Post back and let us know what you found.

D-link dwl-2100ap in WDS mode Received Deauth: WLAN 1 11G STA


I have had similar problems with DWL-2100 and (much less often) with DWL-3200. I have no solution, but a workaround: changing the authentication mode. For example, if the units are using WPA-Personal, I change it (on both) to WPA2-Personal or WPA-Auto-Personal. It doesn't seem to matter which mode is used, it's just the fact of changing it that helps (eventually). You may have to go through the process more than once. Also, realize that although the web interface comes up 30 seconds or so after a reboot, it may take another 30-60 seconds before a link is established, so don't give up too soon while trying these changes.

DHCP option is disabled when LAN IP is Dynamic on DWL-G700AP


that is right the access point does not have a dhcp server. that will give an ip address to all of your computers or device connected to it wireless. If you have a modem with a dhcp server there will be no problem with the IP but if the modem does not you must have a router and now an access point.
