Section 1 - Product Overview
Introduction
Now you can monitor and manage your home network right from your laptop, iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ device. This cloudenabled router can be configured to send an email to keep you informed anywhere, anytime when new devices are connecting
to your network or unwanted access is detected. Monitor in real time websites that are being visited with recent browser history
displayed on the mydlink™ Lite app – which is great for parents. The D-Link Cloud Service can detect and block unwelcome
guests who try to access your wireless network, and suspicious activities will be displayed right on your mydlink™ Lite app or
browser.
The D-Link DIR-862L is an IEEE 802.11ac compliant device that delivers speeds up to three times faster than 802.11n while
staying backward compatible with 802.11a/g/b devices. Connect the DIR-862L to a Cable or DSL modem and provide highspeed Internet access to multiple computers, game consoles, and media players. Create a secure wireless network to share
photos, files, music, videos, printers, and network storage. Powered by 802.11ac technology and equipped with four internal
antennas, this router provides superior wireless coverage for larger homes and offices, or for users running bandwidth-intensive
applications. The DIR-862L also includes a 4-port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet switch that connects wired devices to enjoy
lag-free Internet gaming and faster file transfers.
D-Link has created SharePort™ technology to bring more flexibility to your network. With SharePort™ technology, you can
connect a USB printer and share it throughout your network. You can also share a USB storage device, providing network
storage for everyone to share.
With some routers, all wired and wireless traffic, including VoIP, Video Streaming, Online Gaming, and Web browsing are mixed
together into a single data stream. By handling data this way, bandwidth intensive applications like video streaming could
pause or delay. With D-Link Intelligent QoS Technology, wired and wireless traffic are analyzed and separated into multiple
data streams.
The DIR-862L supports the latest wireless security features to help prevent unauthorized access, be it over a wireless network
or the Internet. Support for WPA™ and WPA2™ standards ensures that you will be able to use the best possible encryption
regardless of your client devices. In addition, this router utilizes Dual Active Firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks
from across the Internet making it the ideal centerpiece for your wireless network in the home or office.

Section 1 - Product Overview
Features
•Ultimate Fast Wireless Networking - The DIR-868L can provide up to a full 1750Mbps* wireless connection
with concurrent 801.11ac and 802.11n wireless clients . It also operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands to
allow separation of traffic so users can participate in high-bandwidth activities, such as video streaming, online
gaming, and real-time audio, without affecting low-priority traffic like email and web surfing.
•Compatible with 802.11a/g/n Devices - The DIR-862L is still fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11a/g/n
standards, so it can connect with existing 802.11a, 802.11g, and 802.11n PCI, USB, and Cardbus adapters.
•Advanced Firewall Features - The Web-based user interface displays a number of advanced network
management features including:
• Content Filtering - Easily-applied content filtering based on MAC Address, URL, and/or Domain
Name.
• Filter Scheduling - These filters can be scheduled to be active on certain days or for a duration of
hours or minutes.
• Secure Multiple/Concurrent Sessions - The DIR-862L can pass through VPN sessions. It supports
multiple and concurrent IPSec and PPTP sessions, so users behind the DIR-862L can securely access
corporate networks.
• User-friendly Setup Wizard - Through its easy-to-use web-based user interface, the DIR-862L lets you control
what information is accessible to those on the wireless network, whether from the Internet or from your company’s
server. Configure your router to your specific settings within minutes.
* Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11a, 802.11g, 802.11n and draft 802.11ac 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. Environmental
conditions will adversely affect wireless signal range.

Section 2 - Installation
Installation
This section will walk 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 the attic or garage.
Before you Begin
• Please configure the router with the computer that was last connected directly to your modem.
• You can only use the Ethernet port on your modem. If you were using the USB connection before using the router,
then you must turn off your modem, disconnect the USB cable and connect an Ethernet cable to the Internet port
on the router, and then turn the modem back on. In some cases, you may need to call your ISP to change connection
types (USB to Ethernet).
• If you have DSL and are connecting via PPPoE, make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as WinPoet,
Broadjump, or Enternet 300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet.

Section 2 - Installation
Wireless Installation Considerations
This D-Link wireless router 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 router and other network devices to a minimum each wall or ceiling can reduce your adapter’s range from 1-30 meters (3-90 feet). 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 0.5 meters at a 45-degree angle appears to
be almost 1 meter thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 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 2.4 GHz 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 2.4 GHz 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.

Open System allows all wireless devices
to communicate with the router before
they are required to provide the encryption key needed to gain access to the
network. Shared Key requires any wireless device attempting to communicate
with the router to provide the encryption
key needed to access the network before
they are allowed to communicate with the
router.
WEP Key 1: Enter the WEP key used here. For 64-bit keys you must enter 10 hex digits into each key box. For 128-bit keys you

Wireless Security Mode: Enable WEP Wireless Security (basic)
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the most basic form of encryption
that can be used for wireless networks. Even though it is known as a
‘weak’ security method, it is better than no security at all. Older wireless
adapter sometimes only supports WEP encryption and thus we still find
this encryption method used today.
The following parameters will be available for configuration:
Authentication: Authentication is a process by which the
router verifies the identity of a network
device that is attempting to join the
wireless network. There are two types
authentication for this device when
using WEP. Open System allows all
wireless devices to communicate with
the router before they are required to
provide the encryption key needed to
gain access to the network. Shared Key
requires any wireless device attempting to
communicate with the router to provide
the encryption key needed to access
the network before they are allowed to
communicate with the router.
WEP Encryption: Here the user can specify to either use a
64-bit or a 128-bit encrypted key.
Default WEP Key: Select the default WEP key number that will be used for the encryption.
WEP Key: Enter the WEP key used here. For 64-bit keys you must enter 10 hex digits into each key box. For 128-bit keys you
must enter 26 hex digits into each key box. A hex digit is either a number from 0 to 9 or a letter from A to F. You
may also enter any text string into a WEP key box, in which case it will be converted into a hexadecimal key using
the ASCII values of the characters. A maximum of 5 text characters can be entered for 64-bit keys, and a maximum
of 13 characters for 128-bit keys.

Section 4 - Security
Wireless Security
This section will show you the different levels of security you can use to protect your data from intruders. The DIR-862L offers the
following types of security:
• WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) • WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)
• WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
• WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
What is WPA?
WPA (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 EAP. EAP is built on a more secure public key encryption system to ensure that
only authorized network users can access the network.

DHCP Server Settings
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DIR-862L has a built-in DHCP server. The DHCP Server will automatically
assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting
their TCP/IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on, they will automatically load
the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the DIR-862L. The DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from
the IP address pool to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP address pool.
Enable DHCP Check this box to enable the DHCP server on your router.
Server: Uncheck to disable this function.
DHCP IP Address Enter the starting and ending IP addresses for the DHCP
Range: server’s IP assignment.
Note: If you statically (manually) assign IP addresses to your
computers or devices, make sure the IP addresses are outside
of this range or you may have an IP conflict.
DHCP Lease Time: The length of time for the IP address lease. Enter the Lease
time in minutes.
Always If all the computers on the LAN successfully obtain their
Broadcast: IP addresses from the router’s DHCP server as expected,
this option can remain disabled. However, if one of the
computers on the LAN fails to obtain an IP address from the
router’s DHCP server, it may have an old DHCP client that
incorrectly turns off the broadcast flag of DHCP packets.
Enabling this option will cause the router to always broadcast its responses to all clients, thereby working around the problem, at
the cost of increased broadcast traffic on the LAN.
NetBIOS Check this box to allow the DHCP Server to offer NetBIOS configuration settings to the LAN hosts. NetBIOS allow LAN hosts to
Announcement: discover all other computers within the network, e.g. within Network Neighborhood.

operation. First WINS servers are tried, if any, followed by local network broadcast. This is generally the preferred mode if you have
configured WINS servers. M-Node (default) indicates a Mixed-Mode of operation. First a broadcast operation is performed to register
hosts and discover other hosts, if broadcast operation fails, WINS servers are tried, if any. This mode favours broadcast operations
which may be preferred if WINS servers are reachable by a slow network link and the majority of network services such as servers
and printers are local to the LAN. P-Node indicates to use WINS servers ONLY. This setting is useful to force all NetBIOS operation
to the configured WINS servers. You must have configured at least the primary WINS server IP to point to a working WINS server.
B-Node indicates to use local network broadcast ONLY. This setting is useful where there are no WINS servers available, however,
it is preferred you try M-Node operation first. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.

QoS Engine
The QoS Engine option helps improve your network performance by
prioritizing applications. By default the QoS Engine settings are disabled
and application priority is not classified automatically. The QoS section
contains a queuing mechanism, traffic shaping and classification. It
supports two kinds of queuing mechanisms. Strict Priority Queue (SPQ)
and Weighted Fair Queue (WFQ). SPQ will process traffic based on traffic
priority. Queue1 has the highest priority and Queue4 has the lowest
priority. WFQ will process traffic based on the queue weight. Users can configure each queue’s weight. The sum of all the queue’s weight
must be 100. When surfing the Internet, the system will do traffic shaping based on the uplink and downlink speed. The classification rules
can be used to classify traffic to different queues, then SPQ or WFQ will do QoS based on the queue’s priority or weight.
The following parameters will be available for configuration:

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of the DIR-862L. Read the
following descriptions if you are having problems. The examples below are illustrated in Windows® XP. If you have a different
operating system, the screenshots on your computer will look similar to the following examples.
1. Why can’t I access the web-based configuration utility?
When entering the IP address of the D-Link router (192.168.0.1 for example), you are not connecting to a website nor do you
have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself. Your computer must
be on the same IP subnet to connect to the web-based utility.
• Make sure you have an updated Java-enabled web browser. We recommend the following:
-Microsoft Internet Explorer® 7 and higher
-Mozilla Firefox 3.5 and higher
-Google™ Chrome 8 and higher
-Apple Safari 4 and higher
• Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If 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.
• Disable any Internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate,
Norton Personal Firewall, and Windows® XP firewall may block access to the configuration pages. Check the help files included
with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it.
D-Link DIR-862L User Manual

Section 6 - Troubleshooting
• Configure your Internet settings:
• Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double-click the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab, click
the button to restore the settings to their defaults.
• Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click the LAN Settings button.
Make sure nothing is checked. Click OK.
• Go to the Advanced tab and click the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK three times.
• Close your web browser (if open) and open it.
• Access the web management. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router in the address bar. This
should open the login page for your web management.
• If you still cannot access the configuration, unplug the power to the router for 10 seconds and plug back in. Wait about 30
seconds and try accessing the configuration. If you have multiple computers, try connecting using a different computer.
2. What can I do if I forgot my password?
If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the
factory defaults.
To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip
to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait about 30
seconds to access the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. When logging in, the username is admin and leave the
password box empty.

3. Why can’t I connect to certain sites or send and receive emails when connecting through my router?
If you are having a problem sending or receiving email, or connecting to secure sites such as eBay, banking sites, and Hotmail,
we suggest lowering the MTU in increments of ten (Ex. 1492, 1482, 1472, etc).
To find the proper MTU Size, you’ll have to do a special ping of the destination you’re trying to go to. A destination could be
another computer, or a URL.
• Click on Start and then click Run.
• Windows® 95, 98, and Me users type in command (Windows® NT, 2000, XP, Vista®, and 7 users type in cmd) and
press Enter (or click OK).
• Once the window opens, you’ll need to do a special ping. Use the following syntax:
ping [url] [-f] [-l] [MTU value]
Example: ping yahoo.com -f -l 1472
D-Link DIR-862L User Manual
136
Section 6 - Troubleshooting
You should start at 1472 and work your way down by 10 each time. Once you get a reply, go up by 2 until you get a fragmented
packet. Take that value and add 28 to the value to account for the various TCP/IP headers. For example, lets say that 1452 was the
proper value, the actual MTU size would be 1480, which is the optimum for the network we’re working with (1452+28=1480).
Once you find your MTU, you can now configure your router with the proper MTU size.
To change the MTU rate on your router follow the steps below:
• Open your browser, enter the IP address of your router (192.168.0.1) and click OK.
•Enter your username (admin) and password (blank by default). Click OK to enter the web configuration page
for the device.
• Click on Setup and then click Manual Configure.
• To change the MTU enter the number in the MTU field and click Save Settings to save your settings.
• Test your email. If changing the MTU does not resolve the problem, continue changing the MTU in increments
of ten.

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?
People use wireless or Wi-Fi technology as a way of connecting your computer to a 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?
Overall, 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?
Phones that connect wirelessly to a base station work like wireless does, using radio signals to 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)
Every local area network needs 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.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN)
Range for Bluetooth (WPAN industry standard) is up to 30 feet away and eliminates the need for many cables.
Only WLAN has the speed and wireless operation range suitable for computers transmitting large amounts of data, but WPAN
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.
Who uses wireless?
Customers and employees, students and teachers, family members; everyone uses wireless. It has become so popular in recent
years that almost everyone is using it. Whether it’s for home or office, D-Link has a wireless solution for it.
Home
• Kids won’t trip over cables
• Email, surf, chat, game, etc...

Where is wireless used?
Wireless technology is expanding everywhere, not just at home or in 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. The wireless connections
in public places are usually called “hotspots”.
Using a Wi-Fi enabled laptop, you can access a 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 one 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 and 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 will significantly reduce any interference that the appliances might cause since they operate on same frequency.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
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.
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.
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 Wi-Fi enabled laptops. All the adapters must be in Ad-Hoc mode to
communicate.
