Setting up a Wireless Infrastructure Network
Please remember that D-Link AirPlus G wireless devices are pre-configured to connect together, right out of the box, with their default settings.For a typical wireless setup at home (as shown above), please do the following:
1) You will need broadband Internet access (a Cable or DSL-subscriber line into
your home or office)
2) Consult with your Cable or DSL provider for proper installation of the modem
3) Connect the Cable or DSL modem to the DI-524 Wireless Broadband Router
(see the printed Quick Installation Guide included with your router.)
4) If you are connecting a desktop computer to your network, install the D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 wireless PCI adapter into an available PCI slot on your desktop computer. You may also install the DWL-G520, or the DWL-520. (See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the network adapter.)
5) Install the D-Link DWL-G630 wireless Cardbus adapter into a laptop computer.
(See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the DWL-G630.)
6) Install the D-Link DFE-530TX+ adapter into a desktop computer. The four Ethernet LAN ports of the DI-524 are Auto MDI/MDIX and will work with both Straight-Through and Cross-Over cable. (See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the DFE-530TX+.)
Using the Configuration Menu
Whenever you want to configure your network or the
DI-524, you can access the Configuration Menu by
opening the web-browser and typing in the IP Address
of the DI-524. The DI-524 default IP Address is shown
-Open the web browser
-Type in the IP Address of
the Router (http://192.168.0.1)
Note: if you have changed the default IP Address assigned
to the DI-524, make sure to enter the correct IP Address.
-Type admin in the User
-Leave the Password blank
The Home>Wizard screen will appear. Please refer to the Quick Installation Guide for more information regarding the Setup Wizard.
Home > Wizard
These buttons appear on most of the configuration screens in this section. Please click on the appropriate button at the bottom of each screen after you have made a configuration change.
Home > Wireless
SSID- Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the name designated for a specific wireless local area network (WLAN). The SSID’s factory default setting is default. The SSID can be easily changed to connect to an existing wireless network or to establish a new wireless network.
Channel- 6 is the default channel. All devices on the network must share the same channel. (Note: The wireless adapters will automatically scan and match the wireless setting.)
WEP- Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a wireless security protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). WEP provides security by encrypting the data that is sent over the WLAN. Select Enabled or Disabled. Disabled is the default setting. (Note: If you enable encryption on the DI-524 make sure to also enable encryption on all the wireless clients or wireless connection will not be established.)
WEP Encryption- Select the level of encryption desired: 64-bit, or 128-bit
Key Type- Select HEX or ASCII
Keys 1-4- Input up to 4 WEP keys; select the one you wish to use.
Home > WAN > Dynamic IP Address
Host Name- The Host Name is optional but may be required by some ISPs. The default host name is the device name of the Router and may be changed.
MAC Address- The default MAC Address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP.
Clone MAC Address- The default MAC address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. You can use the “Clone MAC Address” button to copy the MAC address of the Ethernet Card installed by your ISP and replace the WAN MAC address with the MAC address of the router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP.
Home > WAN > Static IP Address
Static IP Address- IP Address-
Subnet Mask- ISP
Gateway Address- Primary
DNS Address- Secondary
DNS Address- Choose Static IP Address if all WAN IP information is provided to you by your ISP. You will need to enter in the IP address, subnet mask, gateway address, and DNS address(es) provided to you by your ISP. Each IP address entered in the fields must be in the appropriate IP form, which are four octets separated by a dot (x.x.x.x). The Router will not accept the IP address if it is not in this format.
IP Address- Input the public IP Address provided by your ISP.
Subnet Mask- Input your Subnet mask. (All devices in the network must have the same subnet mask.)
ISP Gateway Address- Input the public IP address of the ISP to which you are connecting.
Primary DNS Address- Input the primary DNS (Domain Name Server) IP address provided by your ISP.
Secondary DNS Address- This is optional.
Home > WAN > PPPoE
*** Please be sure to remove any existing PPPoE client software installed on your computers.
Choose PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) if your ISP uses a PPPoE connection. Your ISP will provide you with a username and password. This option is typically used for DSL services. Select Dynamic PPPoE to obtain an IP address automatically for your PPPoE connection. Select Static PPPoE to use a static IP address for your PPPoeE connection.
PPPoE- Choose this option if your ISP uses PPPoE. (Most DSL users will select this option.)
Dynamic PPPoE- receive an IP Address automatically from your ISP.
Static PPPoE-you have an assigned (static) IP Address.
User Name- Your PPPoE username provided by your ISP.
Retype Password- Re-enter the PPPoE password
Service Name- Enter the Service Name provided by your ISP (optional).
IP Address- This option is only available for Static PPPoE. Enter the static IP Address for the PPPoE connection.
Primary DNS Address- Primary DNS IP address provided by our ISP
Secondary DNS Address- This option is only available for Static PPPoE. Enter the static IP Address for the PPPoE connection.
Maximum Idle Time- Enter a maximum idle time during which Internet connection is maintained during inactivity. To diable this feature, enable Autoreconnect.
MTU- Maximum Transmission Unit-1492 is the default setting-you may need to change the MTU for optimal performance with your specific ISP.
Auto-reconnect- If enabled, the DI-524 will automatically connect to your ISP after your system is restarted or if the PPPoE connection is dropped.
Home > LAN
LAN is short for Local Area Network. This is considered your internal network. These are the IP settings of the LAN interface for the DI-524. These settings may be referred to as Private settings. You may change the LAN IP address if needed. The LAN IP address is private to your internal network and cannot be seen on the Internet.
IP Address- The IP address of the LAN interface. The default IP address is: 192.168.0.1.
Subnet Mask- The subnet mask of the LAN interface. The default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
Local Domain- This field is optional. Enter in the local domain name.
Home > DHCP
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DI-524 has a built-in DHCP server.
The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/
private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/
IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on,
they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the DI-524. The
DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP address pool
to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP
DHCP Server- Select Enabled or Disabled. The default setting is Enabled.
IP Address- The starting IP address for the DHCP server’s IP assignment
IP Address- The ending IP address for the DHCP server’s IP assignment
Lease Time- The length of time for the IP lease. Enter the Lease time. The
default setting is one hour
