Introduction
Introduction
With up to fifteen times the speed of previous wireless devices (maximum wireless signal rate of
up to 108Mbps* in Super G mode), the DAP-3220 increases productivity by allowing you to work
faster and more efficiently. With the DAP-3220, bandwidth-intensive applications like graphics or
multimedia will benefit significantly because large files are now able to move across the network
quickly.
The DAP-3220 is capable of operating in one of 4 different wireless networking modes; access
point, WDS (Wireless Distribution System) with AP, WDS or Wireless Client mode.
Use less wiring, enjoy increased flexibility, save time and money with PoE (Power over Ethernet).
With PoE, the DAP-3220 shares power and data over the CAT5 cable, making the setup of your
network less expensive and more convenient.
An ideal solution for quickly creating and extending a wireless local area network (WLAN) in
offices or other workplaces, trade shows and special events, and special events for providing data
transfers at rates of up the DAP-3220 provides data transfers at up to 108Mbps in Super G mode
when used with other D-Link Wireless 108G products. (The 802.11g standard is backwards
compatible with 802.11b devices.) WPA is offered in two flavors: Enterprise (used for corporations) and Personal (used for home
users).
WPA-Personal and WPA2-Personal are directed towards home users who do not have the
server-based equipment required for user authentication. The method of authentication is similar
to WEP because you define a “Pre-Shared Key” on the wireless router/AP. Once the pre-shared
key is confirmed and satisfied at both the client and access point, access is then granted. The
encryption method used is referred to as the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), which offers
per-packet dynamic hashing. It also includes an integrity checking feature which ensures that the
packets were not tampered with during wireless transmission. The abilities of WPA2-Personal
exceed WPA-Personal because the encryption of data is upgraded with the Advanced Encryption
Standard (AES).
*Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11g specifications. Actual data throughput may vary. Network
conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead
can lower actual data throughout rate.

Introduction
WPA-Enterprise and WPA2-Enterprise are ideal for businesses that already have existing
security infrastructures established. Management and security implementation can now be
centralized on a server participating on the network. Utilizing 802.1x with a RADIUS (Remote
Authentication Dial-in User Service) server, a network administrator can define a list of authorized
users who can access the wireless LAN. When attempting to access a wireless LAN with WPAEnterprise or WPA2-Enterprise configured, the new client will be requested to enter a username
with a password.. If the new client is authorized by the administration, and enters the correct
username and password, then access is then granted. In the case where an employee leaves the
company, the network administrator is able to remove the previous employee from the authorized
list to avoid compromising the network. WPA2-Enterprise is far superior to WPA-Enterprise
because the encryption of data is upgraded with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) is available through the Windows® XP operating
system. You will need to use the same type of EAP protocol on all devices in your network when
using the 802.1x feature.

Wireless Basics
D-Link wireless products are based on industry standards to provide high-speed wireless
connectivity that is easy to use within your home, business or public access wireless networks.
D-Link wireless products provides you with access to the data you want, whenever and wherever
you want it. Enjoy the freedom that wireless networking can bring to you.
WLAN use is not only increasing in both home and office environments, but in public areas as well,
such as airports, coffee shops and universities. Innovative ways to utilize WLAN technology are
allowing people to work and communicate more efficiently. Increased mobility and the absence
of cabling and other types of fixed infrastructure have proven to be beneficial to many users.
Wireless adapter cards used on laptop and desktop systems support the same protocols as
Ethernet adapter cards, allowing wireless users to use the same applications as those used on
a wired network.
People use WLAN technology for many different purposes:
Mobility - productivity increases when people can have access to data in any location within
the operating range of their WLAN. Management decisions based on real-time information can
significantly improve the efficiency of a worker.
Low implementation costs - WLANs are easy to set up, manage, change and relocate. Networks
that frequently change can benefit from WLAN's ease of implementation. WLANs can operate in
locations where installation of wiring may be impractical.
Installation and network expansion - by avoiding the complications of troublesome cables,
a WLAN system can be fast and easy during installation, especially since it can eliminate the
need to pull cable through walls and ceilings. Wireless technology provides more versatility by
extending the network beyond the home or office.
Inexpensive solution - wireless network devices are as competitively priced as conventional
Ethernet network devices. The DAP-3220 saves money by providing users with multi-functionality
configurable in four different modes.
Scalability - Configurations can be 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.

Wireless Basics
Standards-Based Technology
The DAP-3220 Exterior Access Point utilizes the 802.11b and the 802.11g standards.
The IEEE 802.11g standard is an extension of the 802.11b standard. It increases the maximum
wireless signal rate up to 54Mbps*, and 108Mbps* in Super G mode within the 2.4GHz band,
utilizing OFDM technology.
This means that in most environments - within the specified range of this device - 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 Division Multiplexing) technology. OFDM works by
splitting the radio signal into multiple smaller sub-signals that are then simultaneously transmitted at different frequencies to the receiver. OFDM reduces the amount of crosstalk (interference)
in signal transmissions.
The D-Link DAP-3220 will automatically sense the best possible connection speed to ensure the
greatest possible speed and range.
802.11g offers the most advanced network security features available today, including WPA and
WPA2.

Wireless Basics
Installation Considerations
The D-Link DAP-3220 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 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 DAP-3220 and other network
devices to a minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce your DAP-3220’s range
by 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 (0.5 meters), at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At
a 2-degree angle, the wall appears to be over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position
your 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 can 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, and not through other materials.
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 when the
phone is not in use.

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation
of the DAP-3220 Managed Wireless Access Point. We will cover various aspects of the network
setup, especially the network adapters. Please read the following if you are having any technical
difficulties.
Note: it is recommended that you use an Ethernet connection to configure the
DAP-3220 .
1. The computer used to configure the DAP-3220 cannot access the Configuration
menu.
 Check if the Ethernet LED on the DAP-3220 is ON. If the LED is not ON, check if the
cable for the Ethernet connection is securely inserted.
 Check if the Ethernet adapter is working properly. Please see item 3 of this Troubleshooting
section to check that the drivers for the network adapters are loaded properly.
 Check if the IP address is in the same range and subnet as the DAP-3220. If it is not, please
see Checking the IP Address in Windows® XP in the Networking Basics section of
this manual.
Note: the IP address of the DAP-3220 is 192.168.0.50. All the computers on the network must
have a unique IP address in the same range, e.g. 192.168.0.x. Any computers that have identical
IP addresses will not be visible on the network. They must all have the same subnet mask, e.g.
255.255.255.0.
 Do a Ping test to make sure that the DAP-3220 is responding. Go to Start>Run>Type Command>Type ping 192.168.0.50. A successful ping will show four replies.
Note: if you have changed the default IP address, make sure to ping the correct IP address
assigned to the DAP-3220.

Troubleshooting
2. The wireless client cannot access the Internet within Infrastructure mode.
Make sure the wireless client is associated and joined with the correct access point. To check
this connection, right-click on the Local Area Connection icon in the taskbar and 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 access point and gateway. Since the DAP-3220 has an IP address of
192.168.0.50, 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; there may be no two devices with 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, then 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 Basics. 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.

Troubleshooting
3. What variables may cause my wireless products to lose reception?
D-Link products let you access your network from virtually anywhere you want, however, the
positioning of the products within your environment will affect its wireless range. Please refer
to the Installation Considerations in the Wireless Basics section of this manual for further
information on placement of your D-Link wireless products to obtain best results.
4. Why does my wireless connection keep dropping?
Antenna Orientation - try different antenna orientations for the DAP-3220. Try to keep the
antenna at least 6 inches away from the wall or other objects.
If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones, X-10 equipment or other home security systems,
ceiling fans, or lights, your wireless connection will degrade dramatically or even drop. Try
changing the channel of your router, access point and wireless adapter to a different channel
to avoid interference.
Keep your product away - at least 3-6 feet - from electrical devices that generate RF noise
like microwaves, monitors, electric motors, etc.
5. Why can’t I get a wireless connection?
If you have enabled encryption on the DAP-3220, you must also enable encryption on all wireless
clients in order to establish a wireless connection.
Make sure that the SSID on the router and the wireless client are exactly the same. If they
are not, wireless connection cannot be established.
Move the DAP-3220 and the wireless client into the same room and then test the wireless
connection.
Disable all security settings.
Turn off your DAP-3220 and the client. Turn the DAP-3220 back on again, and then turn
on the client.
Make sure that all devices are set to Infrastructure mode.
Check that the LED indicators are indicating normal activity. If not, check that the AC power
and Ethernet cables are firmly connected.
Check that the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS settings are correctly entered
for the network.
If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones, X-10 equipment or other home security systems,
ceiling fans, or lights, your wireless connection will degrade dramatically or drop altogether.
Try changing the channel on your DAP-3220, and on all the devices in your network to avoid
interference.
Keep your product away - at least 3-6 feet - from electrical devices that generate RF noise
like microwaves, monitors, electric motors, etc.

substantially equivalent (or superior) in all material respects to the defective Hardware. Repaired
or replacement hardware will be warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period
or ninety (90) days, whichever is longer, and is subject to the same limitations and exclusions.
If a material defect is incapable of correction, or if D-Link determines that it is not practical to
repair or replace the defective Hardware, the actual price paid by the original purchaser for the
defective Hardware will be refunded by D-Link upon return to D-Link of the defective Hardware. All
Hardware or part thereof that is replaced by D-Link, or for which the purchase price is refunded,
shall become the property of D-Link upon replacement or refund.
Limited Software Warranty:
D-Link warrants that the software portion of the product (“Software”) will substantially conform
to D-Link’s then current functional specifications for the Software, as set forth in the applicable
documentation, from the date of original retail purchase of the Software for a period of ninety (90)
days (“Software Warranty Period”), provided that the Software is properly installed on approved
hardware and operated as contemplated in its documentation. D-Link further warrants that, during
the Software Warranty Period, the magnetic media on which D-Link delivers the Software will

be free of physical defects. The customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and the entire liability of
D-Link and its suppliers under this Limited Warranty will be, at D-Link’s option, to replace the
non-conforming Software (or defective media) with software that substantially conforms to DLink’s functional specifications for the Software or to refund the portion of the actual purchase
price paid that is attributable to the Software. Except as otherwise agreed by DLink in writing,
the replacement Software is provided only to the original licensee, and is subject to the terms
and conditions of the license granted by D-Link for the Software. Replacement Software will be
warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period and is subject to the same limitations
and exclusions. If a material non-conformance is incapable of correction, or if D-Link determines
in its sole discretion that it is not practical to replace the non-conforming Software, the price paid
by the original licensee for the non-conforming Software will be refunded by D-Link; provided
that the non-conforming Software (and all copies thereof) is first returned to D-Link. The license
granted respecting any Software for which a refund is given automatically terminates.
Non-Applicability of Warranty:
The Limited Warranty provided hereunder for Hardware and Software portions of D-Link’s products
will not be applied to and does not cover any refurbished product and any product purchased
through the inventory clearance or liquidation sale or other sales in which D-Link, the sellers,
