Wireless Basics
D-Link AirPro wireless products are based on industry standards to provide
easy-to-use and compatible high-speed wireless connectivity within your
home or business. Strictly adhering to the IEEE 802.11a and 802.11b
standards, the D-Link AirPro wireless family of products will allow you to
access the data you want, when and where you want it. No longer will you
be limited to one location or forced to run new wiring through your home or
office. You will be able to enjoy the freedom that wireless networking delivers.
A Wireless LAN (WLAN) is a cellular computer network that transmits and
receives data with radio signals instead of wires. Wireless LANs are used
increasingly in both home and office environments. 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 has proven to be beneficial for many users.
Wireless users can use the same network applications they use on an
Ethernet LAN. Wireless adapter cards used on laptop and desktop systems,
support the same protocols as Ethernet adapter cards. For most users, there
is no noticeable functional difference between a wired Ethernet desktop
computer and a wireless computer equipped with a wireless adapter other
than the added benefit of the ability to roam within the wireless-cell. Under
many circumstances, it may be desirable for mobile network devices to link
to a conventional Ethernet LAN in order to use servers, printers or an
Internet connection supplied through the wired LAN. A Wireless Access
Point (AP) is a device used to provide this link. Your new DWL-AB650
Cardbus adapter can connect to either an 802.11a or an 802.11b AP, as well
as other computers that have an 802.11a or 802.11b WLAN adapter
installed.
People use wireless LAN technology for many different purposes:
Mobility - Productivity increases when people have access to data in any
location within the operating range of the WLAN. Ad-hoc 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
7
DWL-AB650 Wireless Multimode Cardbus Adapter
locations where installation of wiring may be impractical. Furthermore, IEEE
standardization facilitates interoperability of all WLAN devices that conform
to the 802.11a or 802.11b sets of standards.
Installation Speed and Simplicity - Installing a wireless LAN system can
be fast and easy and can eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and
ceilings.
Installation Flexibility - Wireless technology allows the network to go where
wires cannot go.
Reduced Cost-of-Ownership - While the initial investment required for
wireless LAN hardware might be higher than the cost of wired LAN hardware,
overall installation expenses and life-cycle costs will be significantly lower.
Long-term cost benefits are greatest in dynamic environments requiring
frequent moves, adds, and changes.
Scalability - Wireless LAN systems can be configured in a variety of
topologies 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 full infrastructure networks of
thousands of users that allow roaming over a broad area.
D-Link AirPro Wireless LAN products include:
♦ 802.11a 5GHz Wireless Cardbus Adapters used with laptop
computers (such as the DWL-AB650)
♦ 802.11a 5GHz Wireless PCI cards (such as the DWL-A520) or
Cardbus Cards used with desktop or notebook computers
♦ 802.11b 2.4 GHz Wireless PCI cards or PC Cards (such as the
DWL-650) used with desktop or notebook computers.
♦ 802.11a 5GHz Wireless Access Points (such as the DWL5000AP)
Standards - Based Technology
The IEEE 802.11a standard designates that devices operate at an optimal
data rate of 54 Megabits per second. 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. This technology works by transmitting high-speed
digital data over a radio wave utilizing OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency
8
DWL-AB650 Wireless Multimode Cardbus Adapter
Division Multiplexing) technology. OFDM works by splitting the radio signal
into multiple smaller sub-signals that are then transmitted simultaneously at
different frequencies to the receiver. OFDM reduces the amount of
crosstalk (interference) in signal transmissions. D-Link AirPro products will
automatically sense the best possible connection speed to ensure the
greatest speed and range possible with the technology.
Installation Considerations
Designed to traverse distances up to 900 feet (~300 meters), D-Link AirPro
DWL-AB650 lets you access your network from your laptop computer
virtually anywhere you want. Keep in mind, however, that the number and
thickness of walls, ceilings or other objects that the wireless signals must
pass thru may limit range. Typical ranges vary depending on the types of
materials and background RF noise in your home or business. The key to
maximizing the transmission range is to follow these basic principles:
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the Access Point and
your receiving device to a minimum - Each wall or ceiling can reduce
your D-Link AirPro Wireless product’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.)
For some businesses or for a large residential home deployment, it may
be beneficial to have more than one access point with overlapping
coverage.
2. Be aware of the direct line between Access Points and computers with
wireless adapters - A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at a 45degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree
angle it looks as if it were over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Try to make
sure that the Access Points and Adapters are positioned so that the
signal will travel in as straight a line through a wall or ceiling as possible
for better reception.
3. Building Materials make a difference - A solid metal door or aluminum
studs can have a negative effect on range. Try to position Access Points
and computers with wireless adapters so that the signal passes through
drywall or open doorways and not other materials.
4. Make sure that the antenna is positioned for best reception by using the
software signal strength tools included with your DWL-AB650 Carbus
Adapter.
9
DWL-AB650 Wireless Multimode Cardbus Adapter
5. Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical
devices or appliances that generate RF noise.
For the average residence, range should not be a problem. If you experience
low or no signal strength in areas of your home that you wish to access,
consider positioning the Access Point in a location directly between the
computers with wireless adapters that will be connected. Additional Access
Points can be connected to provide better coverage in rooms where the
signal does not appear as strongly as desired.

• Check that the IP Address assigned to the wireless adapter is within
the same IP Address range as the access point and gateway. (For
example: if one computer has an IP Address of 192.168.0.2, the
other computers should have IP Addresses that are sequential, like
192.168.0.3 and 192.168.0.4. 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 Network
