Question about D-Link AirPro DWL-810+ 802.11b (dwl810plus) Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Can't get it to talk to my LAN in ad hoc mode

Am trying to use it as a wireless access point into my ethernet/wireless LAN. The LAN has a combo wireless/wired router. I set up the 810 in ad hoc mode, put it on a different channel as the router, added a wep code and it's own SSID. I connected it to the LAN with an ethernet cable (non-crossover)I can connect with it wirelessly, and get DHCP service to the laptop through it from the router, as well as default gateway and DNS server addresses. But I cannot talk to or ping anybody else on the LAN, including the router and the 810 itself.

Is the AP connected to the router using a ethernet cable? Are you having similar issues when you connect wirelessly to the wireless router?

Wifi light is orange


The colors of the WiFi indicator light show the network status of the printer.
  • Off means one of the following:
    • The printer is turned off or is powering up.
    • The printer is not connected to a wireless network and in power saver mode. In power saver mode, the power light pulses on and off.
    • The printer is connected to an ethernet network. Refer to the Quick Reference Guide to find out if your printer has ethernet capability.
  • Solid orange means one of the following:
    • The printer has not yet been configured for a wireless network.
    • The printer is configured for an ad hoc connection, but it is not currently communicating with another ad hoc device.
  • Blinking orange on the WiFi light means one of the following:
    • The printer is out of the range of the wireless access point (wireless router).
    • The printer is trying to communicate with the wireless access point but the wireless point is turned off or not working properly.
    • Either the configured printer of the wireless access point has been turned off and back on, or the printer is trying to establish communications with the network.
    • The wireless settings of the printer may no longer be valid.
  • Green means that the printer is connected to a wireless network and is ready for use.

How do i set bridge mode?


Depends if you need a wireless or wired bridge?

Here is some info for you.

Infrastructure Mode

With a wireless Access Point, you can operate the wireless LAN in the infrastructure mode. This
mode provides wireless connectivity to multiple wireless network devices within a fixed range or
area of coverage, interacting with wireless nodes via an antenna.

In the infrastructure mode, the wireless access point converts airwave data into wired Ethernet
data, acting as a bridge between the wired LAN and wireless clients. Connecting multiple Access
Points via a wired Ethernet backbone can further extend the wireless network coverage. As a
mobile computing device moves out of the range of one access point, it moves into the range of
another. As a result, wireless clients can freely roam from one Access Point domain to another and
still maintain seamless network connection.

Question: What is infrastructure mode in wireless networking? Answer: Infrastructure mode wireless networking bridges (joins) a wireless network to a wired Ethernet network. Infrastructure mode wireless also supports central connection points for WLAN clients. A wireless access point (AP) is required for infrastructure mode wireless networking. To join the WLAN, the AP and all wireless clients must be configured to use the same SSID. The AP is then cabled to the wired network to allow wireless clients access to, for example, Internet connections or printers. Additional APs can be added to the WLAN to increase the reach of the infrastructure and support any number of wireless clients. Compared to the alternative, ad-hoc wireless networks, infrastructure mode networks offer the advantage of scalability, centralized security management and improved reach. The disadvantage of infrastructure wireless networks is simply the additional cost to purchase AP hardware. Note that home wireless routers all feature a built-in AP to support infrastructure mode.

My wifi doesn't connect to any routers but it connect to my laptop ad-hoc.Still i am not able to use internet through ad-hoc.I have tried restoring my iphone, reset and erase settings, reset network...


Ad-hoc is a computer to computer connection.
You need to change the wireless configuration to Access Point (Infrastructure) mode with encryption.

Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

I have a iphone 3gs and want to access wifi or wireless on toshiba satellite pro x200


Hi,

Laptop normally have single chip WiFi or Wireless Cards...

These cards could be used as client(connecting to wireless router), adhoc or access point(a WiFi card could be used as Access Point to route your LAN(Wired) connection on WLAN)...

Your laptop WiFi card is already busy as a Cleint, so if you want to use it as AdHoc, you have to remove all the other connection with the WIreless...ie, Disconnect the WLAN from connecting other devices, and follow the below mentioed steps to connect your device..

When you are using Client mode you are not able to use it on Ad-hoc or Access Point feature...

Setup laptop to Ad-Hoc
1)Navigate to control panel and choose network connection, Right click on the Wireless network connection and click on the Properties on Wireless NIC
2) Click-Wireless Networks Tab
3) Click-Add
4) Provide SSID Name, name to identify you rnetwork
5)Security -Net Auth: Open
6)Make -Data Encryption: Disabled
7) In the check box present-Check on This is a Computer to Computer (ad-hoc) network.
Change the IP address of the Wireless NIC card, by choosing TCp IP in the properties of WLAN and choosing TCP/IP v4 from the installed service

TCP/IP on Laptop
-IP: 10.0.0.1
-Subnet: 255.255.255.0

TCP/IP on iPhone
-Static IP
-IP: 10.0.0.2
-Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Now try searching for Wireless through your phone, you should able to connect..
Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Home wireless network


Most wireless1.gif networks are setup as infrastructure networks, meaning all communication is to/from a wireless access1.gif point/router that serves the same function as a switch/hub in a wired network as a central point to transfer communications from machine to machine. One works over the air the other through a wire.

There is an alternate form of wireless networking1.gif refered to as ad hoc -- in this version of wireless networking every wireless adapter1.gif can "talk" to any other wireless adapter configured with the same SSID (name) and security encryption (none, WEP, WPA). This is how somewhat less impromptu wireless networks are created similar to impromptu infrared networks some of us have used. One limitation of the ad hoc networks I have seen configured to date is access to the internet. I have posted an article where a stationary PC (required to be running for any other wireless machine to access the internet) with a wireless card in ad hoc mode could act as the router for wireless network but it required a cabled connection the internet. I suppose it could be a second wireless connection on a separate channel with a second wireless adapter in an infrastructure network but why? These types of networks are only recommended in another article for a limited (small) number of machines.

Based on this are you asking to create an ad hoc network to connect 2 PC's1.gif wirelessly without a wireless router1.gif or access to the internet from the wireless network (without a dedicated machine)?

Using psp as compter


Getting online with your PSP is very simple. First, you must be in range of a Wifi hotspot (wireless local area network). You can adjust network setting to connect to an access point such as a Wi-Fi hotspot or the router on a wireless home network and save the network connections data on your PSP®. Up to 10 connections can be saved.

Once in range of the hotspot, go to "Settings" menu, >> "Network" Settings and press "X" Button. Select "Infrastructure Mode" or "Ad Hoc Mode" and press X Button. Set up the "New Connection". For details about Infrastructure Mode set up, or Ad Hoc Mode set up, visit us.playstation.com. hope this helps.
