Wireless Security
Wireless security is a key concern for any wireless network installed. Unlike any other networking method wireless networks will broadcast it’s presence for
anyone to connect to it. Today, wireless security has advanced to a level where it is virtually impenetrable.
There are mainly two forms of wireless encryption and they are called Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). WEP was the first
security method developed. It is a low level encryption but better than now encryption. WPA is the newest encryption standard and with the advanced WPA2
standard wireless networks have finally reach a point where the security is strong enough to give users the peace of mind when installing wireless networks.
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP provides two variations called Open System and Shared Key.
Open System will send a request to the access point and if the key used matches the one configured on the access point, the access point will return a success
message back to the wireless client. If the key does not match the one configured on the access point, the access point will deny the connection request from
the wireless client.
Shared Key will send a request to the access point and if the key used matches the one configured on the access point, the access point will send a challenge
to the client. The client will then again send a confirmation of the same key back to the access point where the access point will either return a successful or a
denial packet back to the wireless client.
Encryption: Use the radio button to disable or enable
encryption.
Key Type*: Select HEX or ASCII.
Key Size: Select 64 Bits or 128 Bits.
Key Index (1-4): Select the 1st through the 4th key to be
the active key.
Key: Input up to four keys for encryption. You
will select one of these keys in the Key
Index drop-down menu.
**Hexadecimal (HEX) digits consist of the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F.
*ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a code that represents English letters using
numbers ranging from 0-127.

D-Link DAP-2695 User Manual
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA / WPA2)
WPA was created by the Wi-Fi Alliance to address the limitations and weaknesses found in WEP. This protocol is mainly based on the 802.11i
standard. There are also two variations found in WPA called WPA-Personal (PSK) and WPA-Enterprise (EAP).
WPA-EAP requires the user to install a Radius Server on the network for authentication.
WPA-Personal does not require the user to install a Radius Server on the network.
Comparing WPA-PSK with WPA-EAP, WPA-PSK is seen as a weaker authentication but comparing WPA-PSK to WEP, WPA-PSK is far more secure
than WEP. WPA-EAP is the highest level of wireless security a user can use for wireless today.
WPA2 is an upgrade of WPA. WPA2 yet again solves some possible security issues found in WPA. WPA2 has two variations called WPA2-Personal
(PSK) and WPA2-Enterprise (EAP) which is the same as found with WPA.
WPA Mode: When WPA-Personal is selected for Authentication
type, you must also select a WPA mode from the
drop-down menu: AUTO (WPA or WPA2), WPA2 Only,
or WPA Only. WPA and WPA2 use different algorithms.
AUTO (WPA or WPA2) allows you to use both WPA
and WPA2.
Cipher Type: When you select WPA-Personal, you must also select
AUTO, AES, or TKIP from the pull down menu.
Group Key Update: Select the interval during which the group key will
be valid. The default value of 1800 is recommended.
Pass Phrase: When you select WPA-Personal, please enter a Pass
Phrase in the corresponding field.
19
D-Link DAP-2695 User Manual
WPA Mode: When WPA-Enterprise is selected, you must
also select a WPA mode from the drop-down
menu: AUTO (WPA or WPA2), WPA2 Only,
or WPA Only. WPA and WPA2 use different
algorithms. AUTO (WPA or WPA2) allows you
to use both WPA and WPA2.
Cipher Type: When WPA-Enterprise is selected, you must
also select a cipher type from the drop-down
menu: Auto, AES, or TKIP.
Group Key Update Interval: Select the interval during which the group
key will be valid. 1800 is the recommended
value as a lower interval may reduce data
transfer rates.
Network Access Protection: Enable or disable Microsoft Network Access
Protection.
RADIUS Server: Enter the IP address of the RADIUS server.
RADIUS Port: Enter the RADIUS port.

Knowledge Base
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-2695 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 Installation Considerations
The D-Link Access Point 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 access point 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
3. 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.
4. Building Materials make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on the 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.
5. Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise.
6. 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.

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of the DAP-2695. Read the following
descriptions if you are having problems. (The examples below are illustrated in Windows® XP. If you have a different operating system, the
screenshots on your computer will look similar to the following examples.)
Why can’t I access the web-based configuration utility?
When entering the IP address of the D-Link access point (192.168.0.50 for example), you are not connecting to a website on the Internet or have to
be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself. Your computer must be on the same IP subnet to
connect to the web-based utility.
•
Make sure you have an updated Java-enabled web browser. We recommend the following:
• Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari 4 or higher
• Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a
different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be on.
• Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate, Norton Personal Firewall, and
Windows® firewall may block access to the configuration pages. Check the help files included with your firewall software for more information on disabling
or configuring it.
• Configure your Internet settings:
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double-click the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab, click the button to restore the settings to their
defaults.
Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click the LAN Settings button. Make sure nothing is checked. Click OK.
Go to the Advanced tab and click the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK three times.
Close your web browser (if open) and open it.
• Access the web management. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link access point in the address bar. This should open the login
page for your the web management.
• If you still cannot access the configuration, unplug the power to the access point for 10 seconds and plug back in. Wait about 30 seconds and try accessing
the configuration. If you have multiple computers, try connecting using a different computer.
What can I do if I forgot my password?
If you forgot your password, you must reset your access point. Unfortunately, this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.
To reset the access point, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the access point powered on, use a paperclip to hold the
button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the access point will go through its reboot process. Wait about 30 seconds to access the access
point. The default IP address is 192.168.0.50. When logging in, the username is admin and leave the password box empty.
