Section 2 - Installation
Wireless Installation Considerations
The D-Link High-Definition Media Player lets you access your network using a wireless connection from virtually anywhere within the
operating range of your wireless network. Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness and location of walls, ceilings, or other
objects that the wireless signals must pass through, 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 D-Link adapter and other network devices to a minimum - each
wall or ceiling can reduce your adapter’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so that the number
of walls or ceilings is minimized.
2.Be aware of the direct line between network devices. 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 make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on range.
Try to position access points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through drywall or open
doorways. Materials and objects such as glass, steel, metal, walls with insulation, water (fish tanks), mirrors, file
cabinets, brick, and concrete will degrade your wireless signal.
4.Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that generate RF
noise.
5.If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones or X-10 (wireless products such as ceiling fans, lights, and home security
systems), your wireless connection may degrade dramatically or drop completely. Make sure your 2.4GHz phone
base is as far away from your wireless devices as possible. The base transmits a signal even if the phone in not in
use.
Note: For best video quality, a wired connection is recommended.

Windows® Media Player 11 Setup
Note: Do not configure Windows® Media Player 11 sharing if you have an Intel® Viiv™ technology verified PC, because you can
use the Intel® Viiv™ Media Server that is included with your Intel® Viiv™ technology verified PC.
To share audio, video, and photo files from your computer, it is necessary to have Windows ® Media Player 11 or another
UPnP™ AV server software on any PC that is not Intel® Viiv™ technology verified. Windows® Media Player 11 software allows
you to share your PC’s audio, video, and photo files with your media player. Windows ® Media Player 11 software then streams the
content to your DSM-510 via your wired/wireless network connection.
If more than one PC contains files you want to share, you can select one of the following options:
1. Copy all of the files to one computer designated to run the Windows® Media Player 11 software.
2. Map network drives on the computer with the Windows ® Media Player 11 software to additional computers that
contain files you want to share. This method also allows you to share files from computers that cannot run the
Windows® Media Player 11 software such as Macintosh systems. The computer running the Windows® Media Player 11
software must always be on when streaming content from any computer.
Note: In order to share files from your MAC to your PC you must turn on Windows sharing from Preferences Menu and select
Sharing.
3. Configure the Windows ® Media Player 11 software on each computer. The DSM-510 will aggregate your media into one list
under music/photo/video.
4. Power on your DSM-510, and do the following based on your network connection:
• Wireless: Select the option Cancel. Connect to your network by selecting a network name and by providing the necessary information for authentication. Please refer to page 21 for step-by-step instructions.
• Wired: After powering on your DSM-510 your network will automatically be detected. Click Finish.

Organizing Photo Albums
Unlike music files, photos contain little information about their content. Therefore, photos are organized by their filename and by the
folder they are in. Many digital cameras will organize your photos into folders when you connect and unload them to your PC. Each
time you dock or connect, a new folder is created using the current date and time, and all photos are copied into that folder.
To simplify browsing on your DSM-510, you can create folders on your PC. For instance, create a folder in the My Pictures directory
called Vacation and copy all of your vacation photos into it. Your DSM-510 will show the Vacation folder. To play a slideshow of the
folder, highlight it and press the Play button. To view a list of photos in the folder, highlight it and press the right arrow button.
You can give your photos meaningful names by renaming the files on the PC. Most digital cameras number photos sequentially.
For example, rename the photo IM001125.jpg to sunset.jpg on your PC. The photo will be displayed as sunset.jpg on your DSM510*.
Right-click on the file and select Rename.

Wireless Basics
D-Link 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. Strictly adhering to the IEEE standard, the D-Link wireless family
of products will allow you to securely access the data you want, when and where you want it. You will be able to enjoy the freedom
that wireless networking delivers.
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a computer network that transmits and receives data with radio signals instead of wires.
Wireless LANs 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 infrastructures have proven to be beneficial for many users.
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 Router is a device used to provide this link.

What is Wireless?
Wireless or WiFi technology is another way of connecting your computer to the network without using wires. WiFi uses radio frequency
to connect wirelessly, so you have the freedom to connect computers anywhere in your home or office network.
Why D-Link Wireless?
D-Link is the worldwide leader and award winning designer, developer, and manufacturer of networking products. D-Link delivers
the performance you need at a price you can afford. D-Link has all the products you need to build your network.
How does wireless work?
Wireless works similar to how cordless phones work, through radio signals that transmit data from point A to point B. But wireless
technology has restrictions as to how you can access the network. You must be within the wireless network range area to be able
to connect your computer. There are two different types of wireless networks Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), and Wireless
Personal Area Network (WPAN).
Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
In a wireless local area network, a device called an Access Point (AP) connects computers to the network. The access point has a
small antenna attached to it, which allows it to transmit data back and forth over radio signals. With an indoor access point, the signal
can travel up to 300 feet. With an outdoor access point the signal can reach out up to 30 miles to serve places like manufacturing
plants, industrial locations, college and high school campuses, airports, golf courses, and many other outdoor venues.
Who uses wireless?
Wireless technology has become so popular in recent years that almost everyone is using it, whether it’s for home, office, or business,
D-Link DSM-510 User Manual
87
Appendix A - Wireless Basics
D-Link has a wireless solution for it.
Home
• Gives everyone at home broadband access
• Surf the web, check email, instant message, and etc
• Gets rid of the cables around the house
• Simple and easy to use
Small Office and Home Office
• Stay on top of everything at home as you would at office
• Remotely access your office network from home
• Share Internet connection and printer with multiple computers
• No need to dedicate office space
Where is wireless used?
Wireless technology is expanding everywhere, not just at home or the office. People like the freedom of mobility and it’s becoming
so popular that more and more public facilities now provide wireless access to attract people. A wireless connection in a public place
is usually called a “hotspot”.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
Using a D-Link Cardbus Adapter with your laptop, you can access the hotspot to connect to the Internet from remote locations like:
Airports, Hotels, Coffee Shops, Libraries, Restaurants, and Convention Centers.
A wireless network is easy to setup, but if you’re installing it for the first time it could be quite a task not knowing where to start.
That’s why we’ve put together a few setup steps and tips to help you through the process of setting up a wireless network.
Tips
Here are a few things to keep in mind, when you install a wireless network.
Centralize your router or Access Point
Make sure you place the router/access point in a centralized location within your network for the best performance. Try to place the
router/access point as high as possible in the room, so the signal gets dispersed throughout your home. If you have a two-story
home, you may need a repeater to boost the signal to extend the range.
Eliminate Interference
Place home appliances such as cordless telephones, microwaves, and televisions as far away as possible from the router/access
point. This would significantly reduce any interference that the appliances might cause since they operate on the same frequency.
Security
Don’t let you next-door neighbors or intruders connect to your wireless network. Secure your wireless network by turning on the
WPA or WEP security feature on the router. Refer to the product manual for detailed information on how to set security up.
D-Link DSM-510 User Manual

Wireless Modes
There are basically two modes of networking:
•Infrastructure – All wireless clients will connect to an access point or wireless router.
•Ad-Hoc – Directly connecting to another computer, for peer-to-peer communication, using wireless network adapters
on each computer, such as two or more WNA-1330 wireless network Cardbus adapters.
An Infrastructure network contains an Access Point or wireless router. All the wireless devices, or clients, will connect to the wireless
router or access point.
An Ad-Hoc network contains only clients, such as laptops with wireless cardbus adapters. All the adapters must be in Ad-Hoc mode
to communicate.

Check your IP Address
After you install your new D-Link adapter, by default, the TCP/IP settings should be set to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server
(i.e. wireless router) automatically. To verify your IP address, please follow the steps below.
Click on Start > Run. In the run box type cmd and click OK.
At the prompt, type ipconfig and press Enter.
This will display the IP address, subnet mask, and the default
gateway of your adapter.
If the address is 0.0.0.0, check your adapter installation, security
settings, and the settings on your router. Some firewall software
programs may block a DHCP request on newly installed
adapters.
If you are connecting to a wireless network at a hotspot (e.g.
hotel, coffee shop, airport), please contact an employee or
administrator to verify their wireless network settings.

Convert an Earlier WMV File into WMV9
There are many variations of video files (including WMV files) which may affect playback on the DSM-510. To alleviate this issue, there
are software tools available on the web to check the properties of a video file and to convert an earlier WMV file into WMV9. If you have
Windows® XP or ME, your Windows comes with a tool from Microsoft called “Movie Maker.” With this tool, you can create and edit
video files into Windows Media Video 9 (WMV9) format. Here is an example of converting a WMV8 file into WMV9.
Step 1: Verify your WMV file codec using a validation tool. In the “Video” field, it tells you the selected video file is a WMV8 instead of
a supported WMV9 by your HD media player. Therefore, we need to convert this file into a WMV9 format in order for you to play it.
This is AVIcodec, which is used to check for an earlier version of
a WMV file.
Step 2: Open “Windows Movie Maker”. Import the video you wish to convert.
