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 Wireless Local Area Network (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 WLAN 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 ways 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)
Installation Considerations
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 DWL-700AP and other network
devices to a minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce your D-Link Air 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 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 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 RF noise.

an IP address of 192.168.0.50, 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.)

D-Link or its authorized reseller or distributor and
Products purchased and delivered within the fifty states of the United States, the District of Columbia,
U.S. Possessions or Protectorates, U.S. Military Installations, addresses with an APO or FPO.
Limited Warranty: D-Link warrants that the hardware portion of the D-Link products described below will
be free from material defects in workmanship and materials from the date of original retail purchase of the
product, for the period set forth below applicable to the product type (“Warranty Period”), except as otherwise
stated herein.
1-Year Limited Warranty for the Product(s) is defined as follows:
•

Power Supplies and Fans One (1) Year
Spare parts and spare kits Ninety (90) days
D-Link’s sole obligation shall be to repair or replace the defective Hardware during the Warranty Period at
no charge to the original owner or to refund at D-Link’s sole discretion. Such repair or replacement will be
rendered by D-Link at an Authorized D-Link Service Office. The replacement Hardware need not be new or
have an identical make, model or part. D-Link may in its sole discretion replace the defective Hardware (or
any part thereof) with any reconditioned product that D-Link reasonably determines is substantially equivalent
(or superior) in all material respects to the defective Hardware. Repaired or replacement Hardware will be
warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period from the date of original retail purchase. If a
material defect is incapable of correction, or if D-Link determines in its sole discretion that it is not practical to
repair or replace the defective Hardware, the price paid by the original purchaser for the defective Hardware
will be refunded by D-Link upon return to D-Link of the defective Hardware. All Hardware (or part thereof) that
is replaced by D-Link, or for which the purchase price is refunded, shall become the property of D-Link upon
replacement or refund.
Limited Software Warranty: D-Link warrants that the software portion of the product (“Software”) will substantially
conform to D-Link’s then current functional specifications for the Software, as set forth in the applicable
documentation, from the date of original retail purchase of the Software for a period of ninety (90) days (“Warranty
Period”), provided that the Software is properly installed on approved hardware and operated as contemplated
in its documentation. D-Link further warrants that, during the Warranty Period, the magnetic media on which
D-Link delivers the Software will be free of physical defects. D-Link’s sole obligation shall be to replace the
non-conforming Software (or defective media) with software that substantially conforms to D-Link’s functional
specifications for the Software or to refund at D-Link’s sole discretion. Except as otherwise agreed by D-Link
in writing, the replacement Software is provided only to the original licensee, and is subject to the terms and
conditions of the license granted by D-Link for the Software. Software will be warranted for the remainder of the
original Warranty Period from the date or original retail purchase. If a material non-conformance is incapable
of correction, or if D-Link determines in its sole discretion that it is not practical to replace the non-conforming
Software, the price paid by the original licensee for the non-conforming Software will be refunded by D-Link;
provided that the non-conforming Software (and all copies thereof) is first returned to D-Link. The license
granted respecting any Software for which a refund is given automatically terminates.
Non-Applicability of Warranty: The Limited Warranty provided hereunder for hardware and software of DLink’s products will not be applied to and does not cover any refurbished product and any product purchased
through the inventory clearance or liquidation sale or other sales in which D-Link, the sellers, or the liquidators
expressly disclaim their warranty obligation pertaining to the product and in that case, the product is being
sold “As-Is” without any warranty whatsoever including, without limitation, the Limited Warranty as described
herein, notwithstanding anything stated herein to the contrary.
