Section 1 - Product Overview
Introduction
At up to fifteen times the speed* of previous wireless devices you can work faster and more efficiently, increasing
productivity. With the DWL-3150, bandwidth-intensive applications like graphics or multimedia will benefit significantly
because large files are able to move across the network quickly.
Inclusion of all three standards (802.11b and 802.11g) means that the DWL-3150 is versatile enough to allow
connection to almost any 802.11 network or device.
The DWL-3150 is capable of operating in one of 3 different modes to meet your wireless networking needs. The DWL-3150
can operate as a Wireless Bridge, a Wireless Workgroup Bridge, or a Wireless WAN.
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-3150 provides data transfers at up to 54Mbps* when used with other D-Link
Air Premier® or Air Premier AG® products (The 802.11g standard is backwards compatible with 802.11b devices).
WPA is offered in two flavors: Enterprise (used for corporations), and Personal (used for home users).
WPA-Personal and WPA2-Personal is directed at home users who do not have the server based equipment required
for user authentication. The method of authentication is similar to WEP because you define a “Pre-Shared Key” on
the wireless router/AP. Once the pre-shared key is confirmed and satisfied on both the client and access point, then
access is granted. The encryption method used is referred to as the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), which offers
per-packet dynamic hashing. It also includes an integrity checking feature which ensures that the packets were not
tampered with during wireless transmission. WPA2-Personal is far superior to WPA-Personal, because the encryption
of data is upgraded with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
*Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11g specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building
materials and construction, and network overhead lower actual data throughput rate.
D-Link DWL-3150 User Manual
Section 1 - Product Overview
WPA-Enterprise and WPA2-Enterprise is ideal for businesses that have existing security infrastructures in place.
Management and security implementation can now be centralized on a server participating on the network. Utilizing
802.1x with a RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service) server, a network administrator can define a list
of authorized users who can access the wireless LAN. When attempting to access a wireless LAN with either WPAEnterprise or WPA2-Enterprise configured, the new client will be challenged with a username and password. If the
new client is authorized by the administration, and enters the correct username and password, then access is granted.
In a scenario where an employee leaves the company, the network administrator can remove the employee from the
authorized list and not have to worry about the network being compromised by a former employee. WPA2-Enterprise
is far superior to WPA-Enterprise, because the encryption of data is upgraded with the Advanced Encryption Standard
(AES).

Section 2 - Installation
Wireless Installation Considerations
The D-Link 802.11g Wireless Bridge 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 D-Link adapter 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
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 make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on
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.
4.Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that
generate RF noise.
5.If you are using 2.4GHz 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.

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 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 infrastructures have proven
to be beneficial for many users.
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.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
What is Wireless?
Wireless or WiFi technology is another way of connecting your computer to the network without using wires. WiFi 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 phones work, through radio signals that transmit data from 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, 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.

Who uses wireless?
Wireless technology has become so popular in recent years that almost everyone is using it, whether it’s for home,
office, or business, D-Link has a wireless solution for it.
Home
• Gives everyone at home broadband access
• Surf the web, check email, instant message, and etc
• Gets rid of the cables around the house
• Simple and easy to use
Small Office and Home Office
• Stay on top of everything at home as you would at office
• Remotely access your office network from home
• Share Internet connection and printer with multiple computers
• No need to dedicate office space
Where is wireless used?
Wireless technology is expanding everywhere, not just at home or the 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. A wireless
connection in a public place is usually called a “hotspot”.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
Using a D-Link Cardbus Adapter with your laptop, you can access the hotspot to connect to the Internet from remote
locations like: Airports, Hotels, Coffee Shops, Libraries, Restaurants, and Convention Centers.
A 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 the 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 the product manual for detailed information on how to set
security up.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
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-1330 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.
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.
If you are connecting to a wireless network at a
hotspot (e.g. hotel, coffee shop, airport), please contact an employee or administrator to verify their wireless network
settings.
