Introduction
Introduction
The D-Link DI-634M Wireless 108G MIMO Router is an 802.11g high-performance,
wireless router that supports high-speed wireless networking at home, at work or in
public places.
Unlike most routers, the DI-634M provides data transfers at up to 108Mbps* (compared
to the standard 54Mbps) when used with other D-Link Wireless 108G MIMO and 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 DI-634M has the newest, strongest, most advanced security features available today.
When used with other 802.11g WPA (WiFi Protected Access) compatible products in
a network, 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.
The DI-634M router includes an easy-to-use installation wizard located on the D-Link
CD. Simply insert the CD into your computer and follow the on-screen instructions. Your
router will automatically be configured.

Wireless Basics
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.

DI-634M User’s Manual
Wireless Basics
Standards-based Technology
The DI-634M Wireless 108G MIMO Router utilizes the 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 highspeed 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 DI-634M 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.
Installation Considerations
The D-Link DI-634M Wireless 108G MIMO Router 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 Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the DI-634M 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.
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 just over 2 feet (.6 meters) 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 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.
4 Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical
devices or appliances that generate extreme RF noise.
* 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.

WCN Wizard
If your PC’s operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later and you are
using Windows Internet Explorer (IE) as your browser, you can use Windows Connect
Now (WCN) technology to help configure the router’s wireless security settings.
Wireless Network Setup Wizard
Before you can use the router’s WCN Wizard, you must first execute the Wireless
Network Setup Wizard on your PC. If you have not already done so, go to the Windows
Control Panel and select Wireless Network Setup Wizard. The Wireless Network
Setup Wizard gives you the choices: “Use a USB flash drive” and “Set up a network
manually”. Choose “Set up a network manually”. In fact, you will not have to do the
set-up manually; it will be done with the WCN ActiveX Control.
WCN ActiveX Control
The WCN ActiveX Control provides the WCN link between your PC and the router
via the browser that communicates wireless configuration data without a USB flash
drive. The browser will attempt to download the WCN ActiveX Control, if it is not
already available on your PC. For this action to succeed, you must already have a
WAN connection, and the browser’s internet security setting must be Medium or lower
(select Tools > Internet Options > Security > Custom Level > Medium).
When the necessary preparations are complete, the WCN technology will propagate
the wireless network settings from your PC to the router. Then you will have to reboot
the router for the settings to take effect.
Note that WCN only sets a few of the wireless options. You will still need to go to
the Home > Wireless page to set other wireless options such as Super G Mode and
transmission rate.

Advanced > Virtual Server
The DI-634M can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing
Web or FTP services (for example) via the public IP address can be automatically
redirected to local servers in the LAN (Local Area Network).
The DI-634M firewall feature filters out unrecognized packets to protect your LAN
network so all computers networked with the DI-634M 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 DI-634M redirects
the external service request to the appropriate server within the LAN network.
The DI-634M 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.

interface is re-established (e.g. after a reboot).
Measured Uplink
Speed:
This is the uplink speed measured when the WAN interface was
last re-established. The value may be lower than that reported
by your ISP as it does not include all of the network protocol
overheads associated with your ISP’s network. Typically, this
figure will be between 87% and 91% of the stated uplink speed
for xDSL connections and around 5 kbps lower for cable network
connections.

Uplink Speed:
If Automatic Uplink Speed is disabled, this options allows you
to set the uplink speed manually. Uplink speed is the speed
at which data can be transferred from the router to your ISP.
This is determined by your ISP. ISPs often specify speed as a
downlink/uplink pair; for example, 1.5Mbits/284Kbits. For this
example, you would enter “284”. Alternatively you can test your
uplink speed with a service such as www.dslreports.com. Note
however that sites such as DSL Reports, because they do not
consider as many network protocol overheads, will generally
note speeds slightly lower than the Measured Uplink Speed or
the ISP rated speed.
Connection Type:
By default, the router automatically determines whether the
underlying connection is an xDSL/Frame-relay network or some
other connection type (such as cable modem or Ethernet), and
it displays the result as Detected xDSL or Frame Relay Network.
If you have an unusual network connection in which you are
actually connected via xDSL but for which you configure either
“Static” or “DHCP” in the WAN settings, setting this option to
xDSL or Other Frame Relay Network ensures that the router
will recognize that it needs to shape traffic slightly differently in
order to give the best performance. Choosing xDSL or Other
Frame Relay Network causes the measured uplink speed to
be reported slightly lower than before on such connections, but
gives much better results.

Transmit Power:
Normally the wireless transmitter operates at 100% power. In
some circumstances, however, there might be a need to isolate
specific frequencies to a smaller area. By reducing the power of
the radio, you can prevent transmissions from reaching beyond
your corporate/home office or designated wireless area.
Beacon Interval:
Beacons are packets sent by a wireless router to synchronize
wireless devices. Specify a Beacon Interval value between 20
and 1000 milliseconds. The default value is 100 milliseconds.
RTS Threshold:
This setting should remain at its default value of 2346. If you
encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications to
the value range between 1 and 2346 are recommended.
Fragmentation
Threshold:
This setting should remain at its default value of 2346. Setting the
Fragmentation value too low may result in poor performance.
DTIM Interval:
A DTIM is a countdown for informing clients of the next window
for listening to broadcast and multicast messages. When the
wireless router has buffered broadcast or multicast messages
for associated clients, it sends the next DTIM with a DTIM
Interval value. Wireless clients detect the beacons and awaken
to receive the broadcast and multicast messages. The default
value is 1. Valid settings are between 1 and 255.

Troubleshooting
This Chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and
operation of the DI-634M Wireless Broadband Router. We cover various aspects of
the network setup, including the network adapters. Please read the following if you are
having problems.
Note: It is recommended that you use an Ethernet connection to configure the
DI-634M Wireless Broadband Router.
1. The computer used to configure the DI-634M cannot access the Configuration
menu.
 Check that the Ethernet LED on the DI-634M 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 DI-634M.
Please see Checking the IP Address in Windows XP in the Networking
Basics section of this manual.
Note: The IP Address of the DI-634M 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 DI-634M 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 DI-634M.

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 DI-634M. 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 DI-634M, you must also enable encryption on
all wireless clients in order to establish a wireless connection.
 For 802.11b, 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 DI-634M and the wireless client into the same room and then test the
wireless connection.
 Disable all security settings. (WEP, MAC Address Control)
 Turn off your DI-634M and the client. Turn the DI-634M 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 DI-634M, and
on all the devices in your network to avoid interference.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
1) Why can’t I access the Web-based configuration?
When entering the IP Address of the DI-634M (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 the web-based utility, please follow the steps below.
Step 1: 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.
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
Uplink Port to Uplink Port (hub/switch)
Normal Port to Normal Port (hub/switch)
The following connections require a Straight-through Cable:
Computer to Residential Gateway/Router
Computer to Normal Port (hub/switch)
Access Point to Normal Port (hub/switch)
Print Server to Normal Port (hub/switch)
Uplink Port to Normal Port (hub/switch)

Frequently Asked Questions
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 straightthrough 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

4) Can I use my D-Link Broadband Router to share my
Internet connection provided by AOL DSL Plus?
In most cases yes. AOL DSL+ may use PPPoE for authentication bypassing the client
software. If this is the case, then our routers will work with this service. Please contact
AOL if you are not sure.
To set up your router:
Step 1: Log into the web-based configuration (192.168.0.1) and configure the WAN
side to use PPPoE.
Step 2: Enter your screen name followed by @aol.com for the user name. Enter your
AOL password in the password box.
Step 3: You will have to set the MTU to 1400. AOL DSL does not allow for anything
higher than 1400.
Step 4: Apply settings.
Step 5: Recycle the power to the modem for 1 minute and then recycle power to the
router. Allow 1 to 2 minutes to connect.
If you connect to the Internet with a different internet service provider and want to use
the AOL software, you can do that without configuring the router’s firewall settings. You
need to configure the AOL software to connect using TCP/IP.
Go to http://www.aol.com for more specific configuration information of their software.
5) How do I open ports (port forward) 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 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 or UDP.
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.
Please visit http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=1191 for a list of popular
applications and instructions for opening the proper ports.

6) 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
7) 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).

Step 3: Click the Advanced tab and then click on the DMZ button. Select Enable and
type in the IP Address you found in step 1.
Step 4: Click Apply and then Continue to save the changes.
Note: When DMZ is enabled, Virtual Server settings will still be effective. Remember, you

Frequently Asked Questions
8) 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 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.

9) 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-634M) support NAT. With proper configuration,
multiple users can access the Internet using a single account via the NAT device.

Securing Your Network
1. Change Admin Password
Changing the password to access your new router is the first step in securing your
network. This can done through the Wizard or on the Admin Page of the Tools tab.
There is no password by default and hackers will know this when trying to access
your network. Make sure that the password you choose is not commonly known or
something that is easy to guess such as your last name or your pet’s name. Try using
a combination of letters and numbers to deter intruders from hacking into your network.
Your private information should be kept private.
2. Change your SSID
3. Enable WEP or WPA-PSK
4. Change the default LAN IP address
Change the default LAN IP address from 192.168.0.1 to an alternate IP address. There
are 3 ranges of IP addresses that have been reserved for use on Private Networks.
10.0.0.0
-
10.255.255.255 (10.0.0.0/8)
172.16.0.0 -
172.31.255.255 (172.16.0.0/12)
192.168.0.0 -
192.168.255.255 (192.168.0.0/16)
D-Link routers use 192.168.0.1 as their default LAN IP address. Choosing an alternate
IP address lessens the probability of an intruders knowing what IP network your devices
are on.
5. Set up MAC Filtering
Each networking device (router, network card, etc) on a network contains a unique
hexadecimal number that identifies that specific product. This number is referred to as
a MAC address. MAC filtering allows you to create a list of the MAC address of each
device on your network and only allows these specific devices to associate with your
network. With this feature enabled, devices attempting to connect to your network with
a MAC address that is not in the list you created, will be denied access.
