Introduction
The D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G VDI-624 High-Speed Wireless Router is an 802.11g highperformance, wireless router that supports high-speed wireless networking at home, at
work or in public places.
Unlike most routers, the VDI-624 provides data transfers at up to 108 Mbps (compared
to the standard 54 Mbps) when used with other D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G products. The
802.11g standard is backwards compatible with 802.11b products. This means that you
do not need to change your entire network to maintain connectivity. You may sacrifice
some of 802.11g’s speed when you mix 802.11b and 802.11g devices, but you will not
lose the ability to communicate when you incorporate the 802.11g standard into your
802.11b network. You may choose to slowly change your network by gradually replacing
the 802.11b devices with 802.11g devices .
In addition to offering faster data transfer speeds when used with other 802.11g products,
the VDI-624 has the newest, strongest, most advanced security features available today.
When used with other 802.11g WPA (WiFi Protected Access) and 802.1x compatible
products in a network with a RADIUS server, the security features include:
WPA:
Wi-Fi Protected Access authorizes and identifies users based on a secret key
that changes automatically at a regular interval. 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 insures much
greater security than the standard WEP security. (By contrast, the older WEP
encryption required the keys to be changed manually.)
802.1x: Authentication is a first line of defense against intrusion. In the Authentication
process the server verifies the identity of the client attempting to connect to the
network. Unfamiliar clients would be denied access.
For home users that will not incorporate a RADIUS server in their network, the security
for the VDI-624, used in conjunction with other 802.11g products, will still be much
stronger than ever before. Utilizing the Pre Shared Key mode of WPA, the VDI-624 will
obtain a new security key every time it connects to the 802.11g 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 VDI-624,
you will automatically receive a new key every time you connect, vastly increasing the
safety of your communications.

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 WLAN is a cellular 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 wireless LAN 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.
Scalability – WLANs can be configured in a variety of topologies 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.
Inexpensive Solution - Wireless network devices are as competitively priced as
conventional Ethernet network devices.

Wireless Basics (continued)
Standards-Based Technology
The VDI-624 Wireless Broadband Router utilizes the new 802.11g standard.
The IEEE 802.11g standard is an extension of the 802.11b standard. It increases the
data rate up to 54Mbps 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 VDI-624 is backwards compatible with 802.11b devices. This means that if you have
an existing 802.11b network, the devices in that network will be compatible with 802.11g
devices at speeds of up to 11Mbps in the 2.4GHz range.

Wireless Basics (continued)
Installation Considerations
The D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G VDI-624 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
2
3
4
Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the VDI-624 and other network
devices to a minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce your D-Link wireless
product’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so that
the number of walls or ceilings is minimized.
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.
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.
Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical
devices or appliances that generate extreme RF noise.

Advanced > Virtual Server
The VDI-624 can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing
Web or FTP services via the public IP address can be automatically redirected to
local servers in the LAN (Local Area Network).
The VDI-624 firewall feature filters out unrecognized packets to protect your LAN
network so all computers networked with the VDI-624 are invisible to the outside
world. If you wish, you can make some of the LAN computers accessible from the
Internet by enabling Virtual Server. Depending on the requested service, the VDI-624
redirects the external service request to the appropriate server within the LAN
network.
The VDI-624 is also capable of port-redirection, meaning incoming traffic to a
particular port may be redirected to a different port on the server computer.
Each virtual service that is created will be listed at the bottom of the screen in the
Virtual Servers List. There are pre-defined virtual services already in the table. You
may use them by enabling them and assigning the server IP to use that particular
virtual service.

802.11g only mode- Select this mode to restrict your network to only those devices
that employ the 802.11g standard. Enabling this mode will ensure that you maintain the highest connectivity rate, unhampered
by any connection to an 802.11b device.
CTS Mode-
CTS (Clear To Send) is a function used to minimize collisions
among wireless devices on a wireless local area network (LAN).
CTS will make sure the wireless network is clear before a wireless client attempts to send wireless data. Enabling CTS will
add overhead and may lower wireless throughput.
None-
CTS is typically used in a pure 802.11g environment.
If CTS is set to “None” in a mixed mode environment
populated by 802.11b clients, wireless collisions may
occur frequently.
Always- CTS will always be used to make sure the wireless
LAN is clear before sending data.
Auto-
Super G Mode-
CTS will monitor the wireless network and automatically decide whether to implement CTS based on
the amount of traffic and collisions that occurs on
the wireless network.
Super G is a group of performance enhancement features that
increase end user application throughput in an 802.11g network.
Super G is backwards compatible to standard 802.11g devices.
For top performance, all wirelss devices on the network should
be Super G capable. Select either Disabled, Super G without
Turbo, Super G with Dynamic Turbo, or Super G with Static Turbo.
Disabled-
Standard 802.11g support, no enhanced capabilities.
Super G without
Turbo-

Troubleshooting
This Chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and
operation of the VDI-624 Wireless Broadband Router. We cover various aspects of the
network setup, including the network adapters. Please read the following if you are having
problems.
It is recommended that you use an Ethernet Connection to configure the VDI-624
Wireless Broad Band Router.
1.The computer used to configure the VDI-624 cannot access the
Configuration menu.
Check that the Ethernet LED on the VDI-624 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
VDI-624. Please see Checking the IP Address in Windows XP in
the Networking Basics section of this manual.
Note: The IP Address of the VDI-624 is 192.168.0.1. 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 VDI-624 is responding. Go to
Start>Run>Type Command>Type ping 192.168.0.1. 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
VDI-624.
54
Troubleshooting
2. The wireless client cannot access the Internet in the
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 illustrations 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
VDI-624 has an IP Address of 192.168.0.1, 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
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 VDI-624. 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.
6. Why can’t I get a wireless connection?
If you have enabled Encryption on the VDI-624, you must also enable encryption on all
wireless clients in order to establish a wireless connection.
For 802.11g, the Encryption settings are: 64 or 128 bit. Make sure that the
encryption bit level is the same on the Router and the Wireless Client.
Make sure that the SSID on the Router and the Wireless Client are exactly the
same. If they are not, wireless connection will not be established.
Move the VDI-624 and the wireless client into the same room and then test the
wireless connection.
Disable all security settings. (WEP, MAC Address Control)
58
Troubleshooting
6. Why can’t I get a wireless connection? (continued)
Turn off your VDI-624 and the client. Turn the VDI-624 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, gateway and DNS 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 VDI-624, 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 VDI-624 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.
59
Troubleshooting
8. Resetting the VDI-624 to Factory Default Settings
After you have tried other methods for troubleshooting your network, you may
choose to Reset the VDI-624 to the factory default settings. Remember that DLink AirPro products network together, out of the box, at the factory default
settings.
Reset
To hard-reset the VDI-624 to Factory Default Settings, please do the following:
Locate the Reset button on the back of the VDI-624
Use a paper clip to press the Reset button
Hold for about 10 seconds and then release
After the VDI-624 reboots (this may take a few minutes)
it will be reset to the factory Default settings

Frequently Asked Questions
Why can´t I access the web based configuration?
When entering the IP Address of the VDI-624 (192.168.0.1), you are not connecting
to the Internet or have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility builtin to a ROM chip in the device itself. Your computer must be on the same IP subnet
to connect to the web-based utility.
To resolve difficulties accessing a web utility, please follow the steps below.
Ste
p 1 Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If
Step
you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a different
port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be
on.
What type of cable should I be using?
The following connections require a Crossover Cable:
Computer to Computer
Computer to Uplink Port
Computer to Access Point
Computer to Print Server
Computer/XBOX/PS2 to DWL-810
Computer/XBOX/PS2 to DWL-900AP+
Uplink Port to Uplink Port (hub/switch)

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
Why can´t I access the web based configuration? (continued)
What type of cable should I be using? (continued)
What´s the difference between a crossover cable and a straight-through
cable?
The wiring in crossover and straight-through cables are different. The two types
of cable have different purposes for different
LAN configurations. EIA/TIA 568A/568B
define the wiring standards and allow for
two different wiring color codes as
illustrated in the following diagram.
*The wires with colored backgrounds may
have white stripes and may be denoted
that way in diagrams found elsewhere.
How to tell straight-through cable from
a crossover cable:
The main way to tell the difference
between the two cable types is to compare
the wiring order on the ends of the cable. If
the wiring is the same on both sides, it is
straight-through cable. If one side has opposite wiring, it is a crossover cable.
All you need to remember to properly configure the cables is the pinout order of
the two cable ends and the following rules:
A straight-through cable has identical ends
A crossover cable has different ends
It makes no functional difference which standard you follow for straight-through
cable ends, as long as both ends are the same. You can start a crossover cable
with either standard as long as the other end is the other standard. It makes no
functional difference which end is which. The order in which you pin the cable is
important. Using a pattern other than what is specified in the above diagram
could cause connection problems.
When to use a crossover cable and when to use a straight-through cable:
Computer to Computer – Crossover
Computer to an normal port on a Hub/Switch – Straight-through
Computer to an uplink port on a Hub/Switch - Crossover
Hub/Switch uplink port to another Hub/Switch uplink port – Crossover
Hub/Switch uplink port to another Hub/Switch normal port - Straight-through

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
How do I open ports on my router?
To allow traffic from the internet to enter your local network, you will need to open up
ports or the router will block the request.
Step 1 Open your web browser
and enter the IP Address of
your D-Link router
(192.168.0.1). Enter username
(admin) and your password
(blank by default).
Step 2 Click on the Advanced
on top and then click Virtual
Server on the left side.
Step 3 Check Enabled to
activate entry.
Step 4 Enter a name for your virtual server entry.
Step 5 Next to Private IP, enter the IP Address of the computer on your local
network that you want to allow the incoming service to.
Step 6 Choose Protocol Type - either TCP, UDP, or both. If you are not sure, select
both.
Step 7 Enter the port information next to Private Port and Public Port. The private
and public ports are usually the same. The public port is the port seen from the WAN
side, and the private port is the port being used by the application on the computer
within your local network.
Step 8 Enter the Schedule information.
Step 9 Click Apply and then click Continue.
Note: Make sure DMZ host is disabled. If DMZ is enabled, it will disable all Virtual
Server entries.
Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a
specific port to one computer at a time. For example: If you have 2 web servers on
your network, you cannot open port 80 to both computers. You will need to configure
1 of the web servers to use port 81. Now you can open port 80 to the first computer
and then open port 81 to the other computer.
72
Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
What is DMZ?
Demilitarized Zone:
In computer networks, a DMZ (demilitarized zone) is a computer host or small
network inserted as a neutral zone between a company´s private network and the
outside public network. It prevents outside users from getting direct access to a
server that has company data. (The term comes from the geographic buffer zone that
was set up between North Korea and South Korea following the UN police action in
the early 1950s.) A DMZ is an optional and more secure approach to a firewall and
effectively acts as a proxy server as well.
In a typical DMZ configuration for a small company, a separate computer (or host in
network terms) receives requests from users within the private network for access to
Web sites or other companies accessible on the public network. The DMZ host then
initiates sessions for these requests on the public network. However, the DMZ host is
not able to initiate a session back into the private network. It can only forward packets
that have already been requested.
Users of the public network outside the company can access only the DMZ host. The
DMZ may typically also have the company´s Web pages so these could be served to
the outside world. However, the DMZ provides access to no other company data. In
the event that an outside user penetrated the DMZ hosts security, the Web pages
might be corrupted but no other company information would be exposed. D-Link, a
leading maker of routers, is one company that sells products designed for setting up
a DMZ.
How do I configure the DMZ Host?
The DMZ feature allows you to forward all incoming ports to one computer on the local
network. The DMZ, or Demilitarized Zone, will allow the specified computer to be
exposed to the Internet. DMZ is useful when a certain application or game does not
work through the firewall. The computer that is configured for DMZ will be completely
vulnerable on the Internet, so it is suggested that you try opening ports from the
Virtual Server or Firewall settings before using DMZ.
Step 1 Find the IP address of the computer you want to use as the DMZ host.
To find out how to locate the IP Address of the computer in Windows XP/2000/ME/9x
or Macintosh operating systems please refer to Step 4 of the first question in this
section (Frequently Asked Questions).

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
How do I use NetMeeting with my D-Link Router?
Unlike most TCP/IP applications, NetMeeting uses DYNAMIC PORTS instead of
STATIC PORTS. That means that each NetMeeting connection is somewhat different
than the last. For instance, the HTTP web site application uses port 80. NetMeeting
can use any of over 60,000 different ports.
All broadband routers using (only) standard NAT and all internet sharing programs like
Microsoft ICS that use (only) standard NAT will NOT work with NetMeeting or other
H.323 software packages.
The solution is to put the router in DMZ.
Note: A few hardware manufacturers have taken it on themselves to actually provide
H.323 compatibility. This is not an easy task since the router must search each
incoming packet for signs that it might be a netmeeting packet. This is a whole lot
more work than a router normally does and may actually be a weak point in the
firewall. D-Link is not one of the manufacturers.

How do I send or receive a file via iChat when the Mac OSX firewall
is active? -for Macintosh users- Mac OS X 10.2 and later
The following information is from the online Macintosh AppleCare knowledge base:
“iChat cannot send or receive a file when the Mac OS X firewall is active in its default
state. If you have opened the AIM port, you may be able to receive a file but not send
them.
In its default state, the Mac OS X firewall blocks file transfers using iChat or America
Online AIM software. If either the sender or receiver has turned on the Mac OS X firewall,
the transfer may be blocked.
The simplest workaround is to temporarily turn off the firewall in the Sharing preference
pane on both computers. This is required for the sender. However, the receiver may keep
the firewall on if the AIM port is open. To open the AIM port:
Step 1 Choose Apple menu > System Preferences.
Step 2 Choose View > Sharing.
Step 3 Click the Firewall tab.
Step 4 Click New.
Step 5 Choose AOL IM from the Port Name pop-up menu. The number 5190
should already be filled in for you.
Step 6 Click OK.
If you do not want to turn off the firewall at the sending computer, a different file sharing
service may be used instead of iChat. The types of file sharing available in Mac OS X are
outlined in technical document 106461, "Mac OS X: File Sharing" in the AppleCare Knowledge base online.
Note: If you use a file sharing service when the firewall is turned on, be sure to click the
Firewall tab and select the service you have chosen in the "Allow" list. If you do not do
this, the firewall will also block the file sharing service. “

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
What is NAT?
NAT stands for Network Address Translator. It is proposed and described in RFC1631 and is used for solving the IP Address depletion problem. Basically, each NAT
box has a table consisting of pairs of local IP Addresses and globally unique
addresses, by which the box can “translate” the local IP Addresses to global address
and vice versa. Simply put, it is a method of connecting multiple computers to the
Internet (or any other IP network) using one IP Address.
D-Link´s broadband routers (ie: DI-604) support NAT. With proper configuration,
multiple users can access the Internet using a single account via the NAT device.
