Introduction
The D-Link DSA-3100 Hotspot Gateway is a simple-to-use network access control
system supporting Ethernet, Fast Ethernet or an IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN (WLAN)
separately and simultaneously.
The DSA-3100 can be configured with a standard HTML browser (i.e., Internet Explorer,
Netscape Navigator) operating on Windows 98SE/Me/2000/XP, Macintosh OS 9, Mac
OS X (v10.1.5 or later), Linux, or Pocket PC 2000/2002. The DSA-3100 allows the
operator to offer wired or wireless networking services and access to the Internet
when used with a switch or wireless access point respectively. The device features
many management settings allowing for private and public access to the Internet and
the necessary privilege mechanisms to permit this usage.

Installation
Requirements
Standard 10/100Base-T network (UTP/Cat5 Ethernet) cable
with RJ45 connectors.
TCP/IP network protocol must be installed on all networked
computers and related devices.
10
Setting up the DSA-3100
Make sure the DSA-3100 unit is not connected to the power
adapter and is powered OFF.
WAN port connection
Use 10/100BaseT connections to connect the unmanaged network.
The unmanaged network’s interface may be the ADSL router’s LAN
port, cable modem’s LAN port or Intranet switch port.
Private LAN port connection
Use a straight-through cable to connect your admin PC with the
internal switch or hub that is connected to the local network port on
the DSA-3100. If you want to directly connect the DSA-3100 to this
PC or the wireless AP, use a crossover cable.
Public LAN port connection
Use a straight-through cable to connect your client PC with the
internal switch or hub that is connected to the authentication port on
DSA-3100. If you want to directly connect the DSA-3100 to this PC or
the wireless AP, use a crossover cable.
Power ON
Connect the supplied power adapter to the DSA-3100 and insert the
plug on the other end into an electric outlet.
Check the LED
The power LED and WAN LED should be ON, if the
corresponding WAN port is connected to an active cable/DSL
modem or T1 line.
The corresponding local network or authentication indicator should
be ON if a network device is connected to the local network port or
the authentication internal port.
11
Configure PCs on your LAN
After installing the DSA-3100, each computer’s TCP/IP network setting and Internet
access configuration may need to be re-configured:
TCP/IP network setting
If your PC uses the default Windows XP/2000/Me/98SE setting, no
changes need to be made. Just start/restart your PC.
If you are running Mac OS 9 or OS X, set your network settings to
DHCP and select Apply.
DSA-3100 will act as a DHCP Server, automatically providing a
suitable IP address (and related information) to each computer
when the computer reboots or when the network settings refresh.
For all non-Server versions of Windows, the default TCP/IP setting
is to act as a DHCP client. In Windows, this is called Obtain an IP
address automatically.
If you are using a fixed IP address on your LAN, or if you want to check
your TCP/IP setting, refer to the Networking Basics section in
this manual.

Using the Configuration Utility (continued)
Home > User Manager > Management Type > RADIUS >
802.1x
Select Enable to use the 802.1x feature. The DSA-3100 supports integrated single
sign-on when using with 802.1x enabled access points. By using the integrated RADIUS proxy function in the DSA-3100, users can use the EAP methods such as EAPMD5 or EAP-TLS to login and get the service depending on the authenticatio methods
which the backend RADIUS server and APs support.
The assumption, for this scenario, is that the network administrator had configured an
EAP-enabled RADIUS server like Microsoft Internet Authentication Service on Windows 2000 or .NET Server 2003. If EAP-TLS is required for the dynamic key exchange,
Microsoft Certification is also required. It is also recommended that the system administrator perform an authentication test to make sure everything is correct before connecting the network to the DSA-3100. (802.1x is available only when RADIUS is selected here, under Management Type in the DSA-3100 Configuration).
To utilize 802.1x, all the devices on the network must be 802.1x and EAP enabled. The
APs and the RADIUS server must share the same secret word; and the DSA-3100
and the RADIUS server must share the same secret word.
Configuring network devices for use with 802.1x:
To use 802.1x, please configure the RADIUS server, the access points and the DSA3100 as follows :
RADIUS server:
The system administrator should create a client account for the DSA-3100 first and
define the required secret. (We suggest that you use a different one than the one the
APs are using). The RADIUS server is capable of mulitple “secret keys” each
assigned to a specific device. In order to participate in the network, each device must
share the secret key that has been assigned to it in the RADIUS server’s
configuration.
DSA-3100:
In the configuration utility, select Home>User Manager>Management Type and select
RADIUS.
Access Points:
When configuring the access point, include the IP address of the RADIUS server in
the appropriate field. The corresponding secrets for each AP should match the settings
in DSA-3100. Click Edit (as shown below) to input the IP addresses and the secret
keys of the access points in your network.
34
Using the Configuration Utility (continued)
Home > User Manager > Management Type > RADIUS >
802.1x (continued)
Input the IP addresses and secret keys for the devices on the network.
If you are using the 802.1x supplicant provided by Microsoft, the idle
time out will be longer than the settings in RADIUS/AP and DSA3100. Except for the idle timer, there is no way for the user to logoff
from 802.1x Access Point in the current 802.1x implementation by
Microsoft.

LDAP:
To use LDAP as the authentication method, input the LDAP server IP address or
domain name and its LDAP server port. The settings will take effect immediately after
you click the Apply button. It is recommended that you restart the DSA-3100 after
these changes if there are any online users.
Login Schedule:
Define the time zone where the DSA-3100 is located and login duration for Guest
and General accounts. By default the time zone is GMT-07:00.
Define login duration for Guest accounts. Select Enable - Edit to enter the

Advanced > Port and IP Redirect
Up to 10 sets of traffic redirection criteria could be defined through this interface.
Clients who try to access a specific destination that matches one of the defined
destinations will be forced to a matching redirection target. These settings will take
effect immediately after you click the Apply button.
37
Using the Configuration Utility (continued)
Advanced > Pass-Through
To maintain an adequate
level of security, each client
on the network can be
managed. To allow some
devices to be unmanaged,
input their IP addresses or
MAC addresses in this
interface. Up to 20 IP addresses and 10 MAC addresses can be assigned
unmanaged access. MAC
address format is
XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Caution: Allowing unmanaged access from specific IP or MAC
addresses could adversely affect the security of your network.

Advanced > DMZ
If you have multiple IP
addresses available to
assign to the DSA-3100’s
WAN interface, you could
define up to 10 pairs of
Ethernet side (Private IP)
and WAN side (Public IP)
addresses. The WAN
interface will bind the extra
public IP addresses
automatically.
Advanced > Free Surfing Area
To allow users access to a
few websites before they log
in, enter the IP addresses of
those sites in the Free
Surfing Area list. Up to 10
sites can be defined. For
example, a website that
provides introduction and
guidance for local facilities
and routes or sites with
content suitable or
appropriate for public
viewing could be listed in the
Free Surfing Area. Guest
users of the network cannot
access other parts of the
network but could still
connect to these sites.
These sites provide a free experience but can also indicate other areas of the
Internet that can be accessed for an additional fee.

Using the Configuration Utility (continued)
Advanced > Static Route
In this example, if
you want the
192.168.202.0/24
and 192.168.100.0/
24 network to have
access to each other,
you should add a
static route in the
DSA-3100 and also
in the
192.168.200.253 IP
router. The following
settings show the
DSA-3100’s static
route configurations.
Destination
Network ID:
Specifies the target network or host IP. In this example we
use network 192.168.202.0 as the routed target.
Destination Subnet
Specifies the target subnet mask. In the example, we use the
Mask:
subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
Gateway IP
Address:
Specifies the IP address of the next hop router. In the
example, we set this to 192.168.0.253 as the 192.168.202.0
network is behind the router.
Click Apply:
Always click Apply to save the changes/additions.
Note: For the static route to work, the next hop route must also have added a static
route to forward all 192.168.100.0/24 IP packets to the DSA-3100. After clicking the
Apply button, you will see the added route is shown in the current running routing
table. Click “ View Routing table “ to verify.
Every change to the static route settings must be stored by
using the Save Setting function, and restarting the DSA-3100.

pinging every 30 minutes. If
the node cannot be reached,
the DSA-3100 will send an Email to the admin. every 30
minutes. For example: if you
specify a node which can’t be
reached, the DSA-3100 will
send an E-mail to the admin.
at 1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30,
3:00..etc, until the problem is
fixed.
