Section 2 - Installation
Installation
This section will guide you through the installation process. Placement of the router is very important. Do not place the router in an enclosed
area such as a closet, cabinet, or in an attic or garage.
Connect to Your Network
Note: Ensure that your DWR-113 3G Wi-Fi Router is disconnected and powered off before performing the installation steps below.
1. Connect a USB modem to the USB port on the back of the router.
2. Insert a LAN network cable into the LAN port on the back of the router. Plug the other end of the LAN cable into the LAN port of your
computer or laptop. The Ethernet LED will turn green if the Ethernet connection is successfully established.
Note: The DWR-113 3G Wi-Fi Router LAN Port is “Auto-MDI/MDIX.” Therefore, patch or crossover Ethernet cables can be used.
3. Configure the device using the setup utility.

Section 2 - Installation
Wireless Installation Considerations
The DWR-113 can be accessed using a wireless connection from virtually anywhere within the operating range of your wireless network.
Keep in mind, however, that the quantity, thickness and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass
through, may limit the range. Ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home
or office. The key to maximizing the wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:
1.Minimize the number of walls and ceilings between the D-Link router and other network devices. Each wall or ceiling can
reduce your adapter’s range from 3 to 90 feet (1 to 30 meters).
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 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.Try to position access points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through open doorways and
drywall. Materials such as glass, metal, brick, insulation, concrete and water can affect wireless performance. Large
objects such as fish tanks, mirrors, file cabinets, metal doors and aluminum studs may also have a negative effect on
range.
4.If you are using 2.4 GHz cordless phones, make sure that the 2.4 GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless
device as possible. The base transmits a signal even if the phone in not in use. In some cases, cordless phones, X-10
wireless devices, and electronic equipment such as ceiling fans, fluorescent lights, and home security systems may
dramatically degrade wireless connectivity.

Wireless Security
This section will show you the different levels of security you can use to protect your data from intruders. The
DWR-113 offers the following types of security:
• WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) • WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
• WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)
• WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
• WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
What is WEP?
WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. It is based on the IEEE 802.11 standard and uses the RC4 encryption algorithm. WEP provides
security by encrypting data over your wireless network so that it is protected as it is transmitted from one wireless device to another.
To gain access to a WEP network, you must know the key. The key is a string of characters that you create. When using WEP, you must
determine the level of encryption. The type of encryption determines the key length. 128-bit encryption requires a longer key than 64-bit
encryption. Keys are defined by entering in a string in HEX (hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F) or ASCII (American Standard Code for
Information Interchange – alphanumeric characters) format. ASCII format is provided so you can enter a string that is easier to remember.
The ASCII string is converted to HEX for use over the network. Four keys can be defined so that you can change keys easily.

4. Select either 64-bit or 128-bit encryption from the drop-down box next
to WEP Encryption.
5. Next to Key Type, select either Hex or ASCII.
Hex (recommended) - Letters A-F and numbers 0-9 are valid.
ASCII - All numbers and letters are valid.
6. Next to Key 1, enter a WEP key that you create. Make sure you enter
this key exactly on all your wireless devices. You may enter up to 4
different keys.
7. Click Save Settings to save your settings. If you are configuring the router with a wireless adapter, you will lose connectivity until you
enable WEP on your adapter and enter the same WEP key as you did on the router.

Section 4 - Security
What is WPA?
WPA, or Wi-Fi Protected Access, is a Wi-Fi standard that was designed to improve the security features of WEP (Wired Equivalent
Privacy).
The 2 major improvements over WEP:
• Improved data encryption through the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP). TKIP scrambles the keys using a hashing
algorithm and, by adding an integrity-checking feature, ensures that the keys haven’t been tampered with. WPA2 is based
on 802.11i and uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) instead of TKIP.
• User authentication, which is generally missing in WEP, through the extensible authentication protocol (EAP). WEP
regulates access to a wireless network based on a computer’s hardware-specific MAC address, which is relatively simple
to be sniffed out and stolen. EAP is built on a more secure public-key encryption system to ensure that only authorized
network users can access the network.
WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK uses a passphrase or key to authenticate your wireless connection. The key is an alpha-numeric password between
8 and 63 characters long. The password can include symbols (!?*&_) and spaces. This key must be the exact same key entered on your
wireless router or access point.
WPA/WPA2 incorporates user authentication through the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). EAP is built on a more secure public
key encryption system to ensure that only authorized network users can access the network.

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. Strictly adhering to the IEEE standard, the D-Link wireless family of products
will allow you to securely access the data you want, when and where you want it. You will be able to enjoy the freedom that wireless
networking delivers.
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a cellular computer network that transmits and receives data with radio signals instead of wires.
Wireless LANs 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.
Under many circumstances, it may be desirable for mobile network devices to link to a conventional Ethernet LAN in order to use servers,
printers or an Internet connection supplied through the wired LAN. A Wireless Router is a device used to provide this link.

What is Wireless?
Wireless or Wi-Fi technology is another way of connecting your computer to the network without using wires. Wi-Fi uses radio frequency
to connect wirelessly, so you have the freedom to connect computers anywhere in your home or office network.
Why D-Link Wireless?
D-Link is the worldwide leader and award winning designer, developer, and manufacturer of networking products.
D-Link delivers the performance you need at a price you can afford. D-Link has all the products you need to build your network.
How does wireless work?
Wireless works similar to how cordless phone work, through radio signals to transmit data from one point A to point B. But wireless
technology has restrictions as to how you can access the network. You must be within the wireless network range area to be able to
connect your computer. There are two different types of wireless networks Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), and Wireless Personal
Area Network (WPAN).
Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
In a wireless local area network, a device called an Access Point (AP) connects computers to the network. The access point has a small
antenna attached to it, which allows it to transmit data back and forth over radio signals. With an indoor access point as seen in the picture,
the signal can travel up to 300 feet. With an outdoor access point the signal can reach out up to 30 miles to serve places like manufacturing
plants, industrial locations, college and high school campuses, airports, golf courses, and many other outdoor venues.
Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN)
Bluetooth is the industry standard wireless technology used for WPAN. Bluetooth devices in WPAN operate in a range up to 30 feet

Compared to WLAN the speed and wireless operation range are both less than WLAN, but in return it doesn’t use nearly as much power
which makes it ideal for personal devices, such as mobile phones, PDAs, headphones, laptops, speakers, and other devices that operate
on batteries.

Where is wireless used?
Wireless technology is expanding everywhere not just at home or office. People like the freedom of mobility and it’s becoming so popular
that more and more public facilities now provide wireless access to attract people. The wireless connection in public places is usually
called “hotspots”.
Using a D-Link Cardbus Adapter with your laptop, you can access the hotspot to connect to Internet from remote locations like Airports,
Hotels, Coffee Shops, Libraries, Restaurants, and Convention Centers.
Wireless network is easy to setup, but if you’re installing it for the first time it could be quite a task not knowing where to start. That’s why
we’ve put together a few setup steps and tips to help you through the process of setting up a wireless network.
Tips
Here are a few things to keep in mind, when you install a wireless network.
Centralize your Router or Access Point
Make sure you place the router/access point in a centralized location within your network for the best performance. Try to place the router/
access point as high as possible in the room, so the signal gets dispersed throughout your home. If you have a two-story home, you may
need a repeater to boost the signal to extend the range.
Eliminate Interference
Place home appliances such as cordless telephones, microwaves, and televisions as far away as possible from the router/access point.
This would significantly reduce any interference that the appliances might cause since they operate on same frequency.
Security
Don’t let you next-door neighbors or intruders connect to your wireless network. Secure your wireless network by turning on the WPA or
WEP security feature on the router. Refer to product manual for detail information on how to set it up.

Wireless Modes
There are basically two modes of networking:
•Infrastructure – All wireless clients will connect to an access point or wireless router.
•Ad-Hoc – Directly connecting to another computer, for peer-to-peer communication, using wireless network adapters on
each computer, such as two or more WNA-2330 wireless network Cardbus adapters.
An Infrastructure network contains an Access Point or wireless router. All the wireless devices, or clients, will connect to the wireless
router or access point.
An Ad-Hoc network contains only clients, such as laptops with wireless cardbus adapters. All the adapters must be in Ad-Hoc mode to
communicate.

Check your IP address
After you install your new D-Link adapter, by default, the TCP/IP settings should be set to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server (i.e.
wireless router) automatically. To verify your IP address, please follow the steps below.
Click on Start > Run. In the run box type cmd and click
OK. (Windows® Vista™ users type cmd in the Start Search
box.)
At the prompt, type ipconfig and press Enter.
This will display the IP address, subnet mask, and the
default gateway of your adapter.
If the address is 0.0.0.0, check your adapter installation, security settings, and the settings on your router. Some firewall software programs
may block a DHCP request on newly installed adapters.

Statically Assign an IP address
If you are not using a DHCP capable gateway/router, or you need to assign a static IP address, please follow the steps below:
Step 1
Windows® Vista™ -
Click on Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Network
Connections.
Windows® XP -
Click on Start > Control Panel > Network Connections.
Windows® 2000 -
From the desktop, right-click My Network Places > Properties.
Step 2
Right-click on the Local Area Connection which represents your network adapter and select Properties.
Step 3
Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties.
Step 4
Click Use the following IP address and enter an IP address that is on the same subnet as your
network or the LAN IP address on your router.
Example: If the router´s LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1, make your IP address 192.168.0.X where
X is a number between 2 and 99. Make sure that the number you choose is not in use on the
network. Set Default Gateway the same as the LAN IP address of your router (192.168.0.1).
Set Primary DNS the same as the LAN IP address of your router (192.168.0.1). The Secondary
DNS is not needed or you may enter a DNS server from your ISP.
Step 5
Click OK twice to save your settings.
