OVERVIEW
General Information
The DAP-1155 device is a wireless access point supporting the router mode. It is an affordable
solution for creating wireless networks at home or in an office.
Using DAP-1155, you are able to quickly create a wireless network and let your relatives or
employees connect to it virtually anywhere (within the operational range of your wireless network).
The access point can operate as a base station for connecting wireless devices of the standards
802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n (at the rate up to 150Mbps).
The device supports multiple functions for the wireless interface: several security standards (WEP,
WPA/WPA2), MAC address filtering, different operation modes (access point, router, client), WPS,
WDS, WMM.
You are able to connect the wireless access point DAP-1155 switched to the router mode to a cable
or DSL modem or to a private Ethernet line and use a high-speed Internet connection to
successfully fulfill a wide range of professional tasks.
In the router mode, the DAP-1155 device includes a built-in firewall. The advanced security
functions minimize threats of hacker attacks, prevent unwanted intrusions to your network, and
block access to unwanted websites for users of your LAN.
You can configure and manage the settings of the DAP-1155 device via the user-friendly web-based
interface (the interface is available in several languages).

value (2, 3, or 4) from the MBSSID drop-down list. By default, the wireless network is not splitted
(the Disabled value is selected from the list).
The value from the BSSID drop-down list is the unique identifier for your Wi-Fi network. You

DMZ
A DMZ is a host or network segment located “between” internal (local) and external (global)
networks. In the access point, the DMZ implements the capability to transfer a request coming to a
port of the access point from the external network to a specified host of the internal network.
On the Firewall / DMZ page you can specify the IP address of the DMZ host.
Figure 150. The Firewall / DMZ page.
To enable the DMZ, select the Enabled checkbox, enter the IP address of a host from your network
in the IP address field, and click the Change button.
Note that when the DMZ is enabled, all traffic coming to a port of the WAN interface of the access
point is directed to the same port of the specified IP address. Also note that virtual servers have
higher priority than the DMZ host. In other words, if there has been created a virtual server that
directs traffic from external port 80 to a port of the device from the local network of the access
point, then entering http://access_point_WAN_IP in the address bar, users of the external
network are directed to the specified port and IP address configured for the virtual server, but not to
port 80 of the device with the IP address specified on the Firewall / DMZ page.
To disable the DMZ, deselect the Enabled checkbox and click the Change button.

CHAPTER 6.
OPERATION GUIDELINES
Safety Instructions
Place your access point on a flat horizontal surface or mount the access point on the wall (the
mounting holes are located on the bottom panel of the device). Make sure that the access point is
provided with sufficient ventilation.
To prevent overheating, do not obstruct the ventilation openings of the access point.
Plug the access point into a surge protector to reduce the risk of damage from power surges and
lightning strikes.
Operate the access point only from an electrical outlet with the correct power source as indicated on
the adapter.
Do not open the cover of the access point. Otherwise any warranty will be invalidated.
Unplug the equipment before dusting and cleaning. Use a damp cloth to clean the equipment. Do
not use liquid/aerosol cleaners or magnetic/static cleaning devices.
Wireless Installation Considerations
The DAP-1155 device 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 noise in your home or office. To maximize your wireless range, follow the
guidelines below.
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the DAP-1155 device and other network
devices to a minimum – each wall or ceiling can reduce your wireless network range by 390 feet (1-30 meters).
2. Be aware of the direct line between network devices. Place your devices so that the signal
travels 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 your wireless range. Try to position your access point and wireless
network devices so that the signal passes through drywalls 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 access point away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or
appliances that generate RF noise.
5. If you are using 2.4 GHz cordless phones or X-10 equipment (wireless devices such as
ceiling fans, lights, and home security systems), your wireless connection may degrade
dramatically or drop completely. Make sure your 2.4 GHz phone base is as far away from
your wireless devices as possible. Note, that the base transmits a signal even if the phone in
not in use.
