Introduction
At up to fifteen times the speed of previous wireless devices (maximum wireless signal
rate of up to 108Mbps* in Super G mode), you can work faster and more efficiently,
increasing productivity. With the DWL-2200AP, bandwidth-intensive applications like
graphics or multimedia will benefit significantly because large files are able to move
across the network quickly.
The DWL-2200AP is capable of operating in one of 4 different modes to meet your
wireless networking needs. The DWL-2200AP can operate as an access point, or in
access point-to-access point bridging mode, or in access point-to-multipoint bridging
mode, or as a repeater.
Use less wiring, enjoy increased flexibility, save time and money with PoE (Power over
Ethernet). With PoE, the DWL-2200AP shares power and data over the CAT5e 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, the DWL-2200AP provides
data transfers at up to 108Mbps in Super G mode when used with other D-Link AirPremier
products. (The 802.11g standard is backwards compatible with 802.11b devices.)
The DWL-2200AP has the newest, strongest and most advanced security features
available today. When used with other 802.11 WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) compatible
products in a network with a RADIUS server, the security features include:
WPA:
Wi-Fi Protected Access which authorizes and identifies users based on a
secret key that changes automatically at regular intervals. WPA uses TKIP
(Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) to change the temporal key every 10,000 packets
(a packet is a kind of message transmitted over a network.) This ensures much
greater security than the standard WEP security. (By contrast, the previous
WEP encyption implementations required the kys to be changed manually.)
For home users that will not incorporate a RADIUS server in their network, the security
for the DWL-2200AP, used in conjunction with other WPA-compatible 802.11 products,
will still be much stronger than ever before. Utilizing the Pre-Shared Key mode of
WPA, the DWL-2200AP will obtain a new security key every time it connects to the
802.11 network. You only need to input your encryption information once in the
configuration menu. No longer will you have to manually input a new WEP key frequently
to ensure security. With the DWL-2200AP, you will automatically receive a new key
every time you connect, vastly increasing the safety of your communication.
*Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11g specifications. Actual data throughput
will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors lower actual data throughput rate.

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. 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 Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) is a 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 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 go - even outside the home or
office.
Inexpensive Solution - Wireless network devices are as competitively priced as
conventional Ethernet network devices. The DWL-2200AP saves money by providing
multi-functionality, configurable in one of four different modes.
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.

Wireless Basics (continued)
Standards-Based Technology
The DWL-2200AP Wireless 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 of up to 54Mbps* (maximum wireless signal rate of up to
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 transmitted simultaneously at different frequencies to the receiver. OFDM
reduces the amount of crosstalk (interference) in signal transmissions. The D-Link
DWL-2200AP will automatically sense the best possible connection speed to ensure
the greatest speed and range possible.
802.11g offers WPA, the most advanced network security features available today.

Wireless Basics (continued)
Installation Considerations
The D-Link AirPremier DWL-2200AP 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 DWL-2200AP and other
network devices to a minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce your DWL-2200AP’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 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 and not 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.

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and
operation of the DWL-2200AP. 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 DWL-2200AP Wireless Access Point.
1.The computer used to configure the DWL-2200AP cannot access
the configuration menu.
Check that the Ethernet LED on the DWL-2200AP 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 3 (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
DWL-2200AP. Please see Checking the IP Address in Windows
XP in the Networking Basics section of this manual.
Note: The IP address of the DWL-2200AP 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 DWL-2200AP 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
DWL-2200AP.

Troubleshooting (continued)
2. The wireless client cannot access the Internet in 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>
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 illustration below.
default
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
DWL-2200AP 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; 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 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 (continued)
2. The wireless client cannot access the Internet in the
Infrastructure mode (continued).
Check to make sure that the router in your network is functioning properly by
pinging it. If the router is not functioning properly, it will not connect to the
Internet. If you need to find out how to ping network devices, please refer to
Checking the Wireless Connection by pinging in the Networking Basics
section of this manual.
Check to make sure that the DNS server in your network is functioning properly
by pinging it. If the DNS server is not functioning properly, you may be unable
to access the Internet. Typically, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will be
able to give you the DNS server information.
3. Check that the drivers for the network adapters are installed
properly.
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 using.

Troubleshooting (continued)
4. 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 the wireless range.
Please refer to Installation Considerations in the Wireless Basics section of this
manual for further information about the most advantageous placement of your D-Link
wireless products.
5. Why does my wireless connection keep dropping?
Antenna Orientation- Try different antenna orientations for the DWL-2200AP.
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, and lights, your wireless connection will degrade dramatically or
drop altogether. Try changing the channel on 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.
When deploying several access points and wireless devices, please make sure
that access points in close proximity do not have overlapping channels. Nearby
access points should be assigned channels that are at least 4 channels apart to
prevent interference. For example, with a group of 3 access points you could
assign the first to channel 1, the second to channel 6, and the third to channel 11.
6. Why can’t I get a wireless connection?
If you have enabled encryption on the DWL-2200AP, you must also enable encryption on
all wireless clients in order to establish a wireless connection.
The encryption settings are: 64-, 128-, or 152-bit. Make sure that the encryption
bit level is the same on the access point and the wireless client.
Make sure that the SSID on the access point and the wireless client are exactly
the same. If they are not, wireless connection will not be established.
Move the DWL-2200AP and the wireless client into the same room and then test
the wireless connection.
Disable all security settings. (WEP, MAC Address Control)

Troubleshooting (continued)
6. Why can’t I get a wireless connection? (continued)
Turn off your DWL-2200AP and the client. Turn the DWL-2200AP 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, and gateway 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, and lights, your wireless connection will degrade
dramatically or drop altogether. Try changing the channel on your DWL-2200AP,
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.
7. I forgot my encryption key.
Reset the DWL-2200AP to its factory default settings and restore the other
devices on your network to their default settings. You may do this by pressing
the Reset button on the back of the unit. You will lose the current configuration
settings.

Limited Warranty: D-Link warrants that the hardware portion of the D-Link products described
below will be free from material defects in workmanship and materials from the date of original retail
purchase of the product, for the period set forth below applicable to the product type (“Warranty
Period”), except as otherwise stated herein.

•
•
•
Hardware (excluding power supplies and fans) One (1) Year
Power Supplies and Fans One (1) Year
Spare parts and spare kits Ninety (90) days
D-Link’s sole obligation shall be to repair or replace the defective Hardware during the Warranty Period
at no charge to the original owner or to refund at D-Link’s sole discretion. Such repair or replacement will
be rendered by D-Link at an Authorized D-Link Service Office. The replacement Hardware need not be
new or have an identical make, model or part. D-Link may in its sole discretion replace the defective
Hardware (or any part thereof) with any reconditioned product that D-Link reasonably determines is
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 from the date
of original retail purchase. If a material defect is incapable of correction, or if D-Link determines in its sole
discretion that it is not practical to repair or replace the defective Hardware, the 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 (“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
Warranty Period, the magnetic media on which D-Link delivers the Software will be free of physical
defects. D-Link’s sole obligation shall be to replace the non-conforming Software (or defective media)
with software that substantially conforms to D-Link’s functional specifications for the Software or to
refund at D-Link’s sole discretion. Except as otherwise agreed by D-Link 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. Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original
Warranty Period from the date or original retail purchase. 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 nonconforming 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.

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,

the product is being sold “As-Is” without any warranty whatsoever including, without limitation, the
Limited Warranty as described herein, notwithstanding anything stated herein to the contrary.
