3. Wireless Basics
D-Link Air wireless products are based on industry standards to provide
easy-to-use and compatible high-speed wireless connectivity within your
home, business or public access wireless networks. D-Link wireless
products will allow you access to the data you want, when and where you
want it. You will be able to enjoy the freedom that wireless networking brings.
A WLAN (wireless local area network) is a cellular computer network that
transmits and receives data with radio signals instead of wires. WLANs are
used increasingly in both home and office environments, and public areas
such as airports, coffee shops and universities. Innovative ways to utilize
WLAN technology are helping people to work and communicate more
efficiently. Increased mobility and the absence of cabling and other fixed
infrastructure have proven to be beneficial for many users.
Wireless users can use the same applications they use on a wired network.
Wireless adapter cards used on laptop and desktop systems support the
same protocols as Ethernet adapter cards.
People use WLAN technology for many different purposes:
Mobility - Productivity increases when people have access to data in any
location within the operating range of the WLAN. Management decisions
based on real-time information can significantly improve worker efficiency.
Low Implementation Costs – WLANs are easy to set up, manage, change
and relocate. Networks that frequently change, both physically and logically,
can benefit from WLANs ease of implementation. WLANs can operate in
locations where installation of wiring may be impractical.
Installation and Network Expansion - Installing a WLAN system can be
fast and easy and can eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and
ceilings. Wireless technology allows the network to go where wires cannot –
even outside the home or office.


Wireless Basics
Inexpensive Solution - Wireless network devices are as competitively
priced as conventional Ethernet network devices.
Scalability –WLANs can be configured in a variety of ways to meet the
needs of specific applications and installations. Configurations are easily
changed and range from peer-to-peer networks suitable for a small number
of users to larger infrastructure networks to accommodate hundreds or
thousands of users, depending on the number of wireless devices deployed.
The DI-514 is compatible with the following wireless products (the maximum
data transfer speed for the DI-514 is 11mbps)

Standards - Based Technology
The IEEE standard-based technology assures that the D-Link Air Products
are interoperable with existing compatible 2.4GHz wireless technology. This
means you will be able to transfer large files quickly or even watch a movie
in MPEG format over your network without noticeable delays.
The technology works by using multiple frequencies in the 2.4GHz range at
speeds up to 11 Mbps. D-Link Air products will automatically sense the best
possible connection speed to ensure the greatest speed and range possible
with the technology.


Installation Considerations
D-Link Air DI-514 lets you access your network, using a wireless connection,
from virtually anywhere within its operating range. Keep in mind, however,
that the number, thickness and location of walls, ceilings or other objects that
the wireless signals must pass thru may limit the range. Typical ranges vary
depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency)
noise in your home or business. The key to maximizing wireless range is to
follow these basic guidelines:
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the DI-514 and your
receiving device (e.g., the DWL-650) to a minimum - each wall or ceiling
can reduce your D-Link Air Wireless product’s range from 3 to 90 feet (1
to 30 meters.) Position your receiving devices so that the number of
walls or ceilings is minimized.
2. Be aware of the direct line between routers and computers. A wall that is
1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3
feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 42 feet (14 meters)
thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a wall
or ceiling (instead of at an angle) for better reception.
3. Building Materials can impede the wireless signal - a solid metal door or
aluminum studs may have a negative effect on range. Try to position
wireless devices and computers with wireless adapters so that the signal
passes through drywall or open doorways whenever possible.
4. Keep your product away (at least 3 to 6 feet or 1 to 2 meters) from
electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise.


4. Getting Started

There are basically two modes of networking.

Infrastructure – using a Wireless Router such as the DI-514, or an
Access Point
Ad-Hoc – directly connecting to another computer, for peer-to-peer
communication, using wireless network adapters on each computer,
such as two or more DWL-650 wireless Cardbus adapters.
On the following page we will show you an example of an Infrastructure
using the DI-514.
The Infrastructure Network example shown on the following page contains
the following D-Link network devices (your existing network may be
comprised of other devices):
• A wireless Router - D-Link Air DI-514
• A laptop computer with a wireless adapter -
D-Link Air DWL-650
• A desktop computer with a wireless adapter -
D-Link Air DWL-520
• A desktop computer with an Ethernet adapter – D-Link DFE-530TX+
• A Cable modem - D-Link DCM-201


Getting Started
Setting Up an Infrastructure Network

Please remember that D-Link Air wireless devices are pre-configured to connect
together, right out of the box, with the default settings.

a secure network. Simply select the specific key to be used for encrypting
wireless data on the network.


WAN is short for Wide Area Network. The WAN settings can be referred to
as the Public settings. All IP information in the WAN settings are public IP
addresses which are accessible on the Internet.
The WAN settings consist of three main options: Dynamic IP Address,
Static IP Address, and PPPoE. Select the appropriate option and fill in the
information needed to connect to your ISP.

Home > WAN

Please be sure
to remove any existing
PPPoE client software
installed on your

Dynamic IP Address
Choose Dynamic IP Address to obtain IP address information automatically
from your ISP. Select this option if your ISP does not give you any IP
numbers to use. This option is commonly used for Cable modem services.

Host Name:
The Host Name field is optional but may be required by some
ISPs. The host name is the device name of the Router.

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 this MAC
address. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address
unless required by your ISP.


Static IP 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 IP 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: Public IP address provided by your ISP.
Subnet Mask: Subnet mask provided by your ISP.
ISP Gateway Address: Public IP address of your ISP that you are
connecting to.
Primary DNS Address: Primary DNS (Domain Name Server) IP provided
by your ISP
Secondary DNS Address: optional



Please be sure to remove
any Client Software program
on your computer before you
start your configuration of the
DI-514 Router.
Choose PPPoE (Point to
Point Protocol over Ethernet)
if your ISP uses PPPoE

User Name: Your PPPoE username provided by your ISP
Password: Your PPPoE password provided by your ISP
Retype Password: Re-enter PPPoE password
Service Name: Enter the service name provided by your ISP. (optional)
IP Address: This option is only available for Static PPPoE. Enter in the
static IP address for the PPPoE connection.
Primary DNS Address: Primary DNS IP provided by your ISP
Secondary DNS Address: optional
Maximum Idle time: The amount of time of inactivity before disconnecting
your PPPoE session. Enter a Maximum Idle Time (in minutes) to define a
maximum period of time for which the Internet connection is maintained
during inactivity. If the connection is inactive for longer than the defined
Maximum Idle Time, then the connection will be dropped. Either set this to
zero or enable Auto-reconnect to disable this feature.
MTU: MTU stands for Maximum Transmission Unit. For PPPoE connections,
you may need to change the MTU settings in order to work correctly with


your ISP.
Auto-reconnect: If enabled, the Broadband Router will automatically
connect to your ISP after your system is restarted or if the connection is

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-514. 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
Subnet Mask: The subnet mask of the LAN interface. The default subnet
mask is
Local Domain Name: This field is optional. Enter in the your local domain


Home > DHCP

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DI-514 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-514. 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 address pool.
Starting IP address: The starting IP address for the DHCP server’s IP
Ending IP address: The ending IP address for the DHCP server’s IP
Lease Time: The length of time for the IP lease.


Advanced > Virtual Server

Virtual Server
The DI-514 can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users
accessing Web or FTP services via the public IP address can be
automatically redirected to local servers in the LAN (Local Area Network).

The DI-514 firewall feature filters out unrecognized packets to protect your
LAN network so all computers networked with the DI-514 are invisible to the
outside world. If you wish, you can make some of the LAN computers
accessible from the Internet by enabling Virtual Server. Depending on the
requested service, the DI-514 redirects the external service request to the
appropriate server within the LAN network.
The DI-514 is also capable of port-redirection meaning incoming traffic to a
particular port may be redirected to a different port on the server computer.

Each virtual services that are created will be listed at the bottom of the
screen in the Virtual Servers List. There are already pre-defined virtual


services already in the table. You may use them by enabling them and
assigning the server IP to use that particular virtual service.

Name: The name referencing the virtual service.
Private IP: The server computer in the LAN (Local Area Network) that will be
providing the virtual services.
Protocol Type: The protocol used for the virtual service.
Private Port: The port number of the service used by the Private IP
Public Port: The port number on the WAN side that will be used to access
the virtual service.
Schedule: The schedule of time when the virtual service will be enabled.
The schedule may be set to Always, which will allow the particular service to
always be enabled. If it is set to Time, select the time frame for the service to
be enabled. If the system time is outside of the scheduled time, the service
will be disabled.

Example #1:
If you have a Web server that you wanted Internet users to access at all times, you
would need to enable it. Web (HTTP) server is on LAN (Local Area Network)
computer HTTP uses port 80, TCP.
Name: Web Server
Private IP:
Protocol Type: TCP
Private Port: 80
Public Port: 80
Schedule: always

Click on this icon to edit the virtual service.

Click on this icon to delete the virtual service.
Example #2:
If you have an FTP server that you wanted Internet users to access by WAN port
2100 and only during the weekends, you would need to enable it as such. FTP
server is on LAN computer FTP uses port 21, TCP.

Name: FTP Server


Private IP:
Protocol Type: TCP
Private Port: 21
Public Port: 2100
Schedule: From: 01:00AM to 01:00AM, Sat to Sun
• All Internet users who want to access this FTP Server must
connect to it from port 2100. This is an example of port redirection
and can be useful in cases where there are many of the same
servers on the LAN network.

Advanced > Applications

Some applications require multiple connections, such as Internet gaming,
video conferencing, Internet telephony and others. These applications have
difficulties working through NAT (Network Address Translation). Special
Applications makes some of these applications work with the DI-514. If you
need to run applications that require multiple connections, specify the port
normally associated with an application in the "Trigger Port" field, select the
protocol type as TCP or UDP, then enter the public ports associated with the
trigger port to open them for inbound traffic.


The DI-514 provides some predefined applications in the table on the bottom
of the web page. Select the application you want to use and enable it.
Note! Only one PC can use each Special Application tunnel.

Trigger Name: This is the name referencing the special application.
Trigger Port: This is the port used to trigger the application. It can be either
a single port or a range of ports.
Trigger Type: This is the protocol used to trigger the special application.
Public Port: This is the port number on the WAN side that will be used to
access the application. You may define a single port or a range of ports. You
can use a comma to add multiple ports or port ranges.
Public Type: This is the protocol used for the special application.
Schedule: This is the schedule of time when the special application will be

Advanced > Filters
Filters are used to deny or
allow LAN (Local Area
Network) computers from
accessing the Internet.
The DI-514 can be setup
to deny internal
computers by their IP or
MAC addresses. The DI-
514 can also block users
from accessing restricted
web sites.

IP Filters

Use IP Filters to deny
LAN IP addresses from
accessing the Internet.
You can deny specific port
numbers or all ports for the specific IP address.
IP: The IP address of the LAN computer that will be denied access to the
Port: The single port or port range that will be denied access to the Internet.
Schedule: This is the schedule of time when the IP Filter will be enabled.


MAC Filters

Use MAC (Media
Access Control) Filters
to allow or deny LAN
(Local Area Network)
computers by their
MAC addresses from
accessing the Internet.
You can either
manually add a MAC
address or select the
MAC address from the
list of clients that are
currently connected to
the Broadband Router.

URL Blocking

URL Blocking is used to deny LAN computers from accessing specific web
sites by its URL. A URL is a specially formatted text string that defines a
location on the
Internet. If any part of
the URL contains the
blocked word, the site
will not be accessible
and the web page will
not display.


Domain Blocking

Domain Blocking is
used to allow or deny
LAN (Local Area
Network) computers
from accessing
specific domains on
the Internet. Domain
blocking will deny all
requests to a specific
domain such as http
and ftp. It can also
allow computers to
access specific sites
and deny all other

Advanced > Firewall

Firewall Rules is an advance feature used to deny or allow traffic from
passing through the Broadband Router. It works in the same way as IP


Filters with additional settings. You can create more detailed access rules for
the DI-514. When virtual services are created and enabled, it will also
display in Firewall Rules. Firewall Rules contains all network firewall rules
pertaining to IP (Internet Protocol).

In the Firewall Rules List at the bottom of the screen, the priorities of the
rules are from top (highest priority) to bottom (lowest priority.)

Note: The DI-514 MAC Address filtering rules have precedence over the
Firewall Rules.

Advanced > DMZ

If you have a client PC that cannot run Internet applications properly from
behind the DI-514, then you can set the client up to unrestricted Internet
access. It allows a computer to be exposed to the Internet. This feature is
useful for gaming purposes. Enter the IP address of the internal computer
that will be the DMZ host. Adding a client to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone)
may expose your local network to a variety of security risks, so only use this
option as a last resort.


Advanced > Performance

Beacon Interval - Beacons are packets sent by an Access Point to
synchronize a wireless network. Specify a value. 100 is the default setting
and is recommended.

RTS Threshold - This value should remain at its default setting of 2432. If
inconsistent data flow is a problem, only a minor modification should be

Fragmentation - This value should also remain at its default setting of 2346.
If you experience a high packet error rate, you may slightly increase your
Fragmentation Threshold within the value range of 256 to 2,346. Setting the
Fragmentation Threshold too low may result in poor performance.

- (Delivery Traffic Indication Message) 3 is the default setting. A DTIM
is a countdown informing clients of the next window for listening to broadcast
and multicast messages.

Basic Rates – Select the data rate. Default is 1-2-5.5-11Mbps.


TX Rates – Select the data rate. Default is 1-2-5.5-11Mbps.

Preamble Type - Short preamble is the default setting. (High traffic
networks should use the shorter preamble type.) The preamble defines the
length of the CRC block used in communication between the Access Point
and the roaming wireless Network adapters. (Cyclic Redundancy Check is a
common technique for detecting data transmission errors)

Authentication - Select Open system, Shared Key or Auto

Open System - The DI-514 will be visible to all devices on the network. This
is the default setting.
Shared Key - In this mode, in order to access the DI-514 on the network, the
device must be listed in the MAC Address Control List.
Auto - In this mode, all devices on the network can access the

SSID Broadcast - Enable is the default setting. Choose Enable to
broadcast the SSID across the network. All devices on a network must share
the same SSID (Service Set Identifier) to establish communication. Choose
Disable if you do not wish to broadcast the SSID over the network.

Tools > Admin
At this page, the DI-514
administrator can change the
system password. There are
two accounts that can access
the Broadband Router’s Web-
Management interface. They
are admin and user. Admin
has read/write access while
user has read-only access.
User can only view the
settings but cannot make any

Remote Management
Remote Management allows the DI-514 to be configured from the Internet by
a web browser. A username and password is still required to access the
Web-Management interface. In general, only a member of your network can


browse the built-in web pages to perform “Administrator” tasks. This feature
enables you to perform “Administrator” tasks from the remote (Internet) host.
IP Address: Internet IP address of the computer that has access to the
Broadband Router. It is not recommended that you set the IP address to
* (star), because this allows any Internet IP address to access the
Broadband Router, which could result in a loss of security for your
If you elect to enable Remote Management, enter the IP Address
of your remote location.
Port: Select the port number used to access the Broadband Router.
Example: http://x.x.x.x:8080 whereas x.x.x.x is the WAN IP address of the
Broadband Router and 8080 is the port used for the Web-Management
Tools > Time

The system time is the time
used by the DI-514 for
scheduling services. You can
manually set the time or connect
to a NTP (Network Time
Protocol) server. If an NTP
server is set, you will only need
to set the time zone. If you
manually set the time, you may
also set Daylight Saving dates
and the system time will
automatically adjust on those dates.

6. Troubleshooting

This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the
installation and operation of the DI-514 Wireless Access Point. We cover
various aspects of the network setup, including the network adapters.
Please read the following if you are having problems.
(Note: It is recommended that you use an Ethernet connection to
configure the DI-514 Access Point.)
1. The computer used to configure the DI-514 cannot access the
Configuration menu.

• Check that the Ethernet LED on the DI-514 is ON. If the
LED is not ON, check that the cable for the Ethernet
connection is securely inserted.
• Check that the Ethernet Adapter is working properly. Please
see item 6 (Check that the drivers for the network
adapters are installed properly
) in this Troubleshooting
section to check that the drivers are loaded properly.
• Check that the IP Address is in the same range and subnet
as the DI-514. Please see Checking the IP Address in
Windows XP in the Networking Basics section of this
Note: The IP Address of the DI-514 is All the computers on the
network must have a unique IP Address in the same range, e.g., 192.168.0.x.
and a Subnet Mask of Any computers that have identical IP

Addresses will not be visible on the network.
• Do a Ping test to make sure that the DI-514 is responding.
Go to Start>Run>Type Command>Type ping
A successful ping will show four replies.



2. The wireless client cannot access the Internet in the Infrastructure

• Make sure the wireless client is associated and joined with the correct
router. To check this connection: Right-click on the Local Area
Connection icon
in the taskbar> select View Available Wireless
Networks. The Connect to Wireless Network screen will appear.
Please make sure you have selected the correct available network, as
shown in the illustrations below.

• Check that the IP Address assigned to the wireless adapter is within
the same IP Address range as the gateway. Since the DI-514 has
an IP Address of, wireless adapters must have an IP

Address in the same range, e.g., 192.168.0.x. Each device must
have a unique IP Address; no two devices may have the same IP
Address. The subnet mask must be the same for all the computers

on the network.) To check the IP Address assigned to the wireless
adapter, double-click on the Local Area Connection icon in the
taskbar > select the Support tab and the IP Address will be
displayed. (Please refer to Checking the IP Address in the
Networking Basics section of this manual.)
• If it is necessary to assign a Static IP Address to the wireless
adapter, please refer to the appropriate section in Networking
. If you are entering a DNS Server address you must also
enter the Default Gateway Address. (Remember that if you have a
DHCP-capable router, you will not need to assign a Static IP Address.
See Networking Basics: Assigning a Static IP Address.)


3. Check that the drivers for the network adapters are installed
You may be using different network adapters than those illustrated here, but this
procedure will remain the same, regardless of the type of network adapters you are
