OVERVIEW
General Information
The DAP-1325 device is a wireless extender designed to increase the operational range of your
wireless network. The extender supports operation with wireless devices of the standards 802.11b,
802.11g, and 802.11n (at the rate up to 300Mbps).
The device supports multiple functions for the wireless interface: several security standards (WEP,
WPA/WPA2), MAC address filtering, different operation modes (repeater, client, access point),
WPS, WMM.
The wireless extender is equipped with one Fast Ethernet LAN port, which can be used to connect a
wired client to the extender or to connect DAP-1325 to a wired router.
The LED clearly shows the signal level of the wireless network to which DAP-1325 is connected.
Due to this, you can easily find the best location for the extender.
You can configure the settings of the DAP-1325 device via the user-friendly web-based interface
(the interface is available in two languages – in Russian and in English).
The configuration wizard allows you to quickly switch the extender to the access point, repeater, or
client mode and configure all needed settings for the selected mode in several simple steps.
Now you can simply update the firmware: when the Internet access is provided, the extender itself
finds approved firmware on D-Link update server and notifies when ready to install it.

Wireless Installation Considerations
The DAP-1325 device 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 noise in your home or office. To maximize your wireless range, follow the
guidelines below.
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the DAP-1325 device and other network
devices to a minimum – each wall or ceiling can reduce your wireless network range by 390 feet (1-30 meters).
2. Be aware of the direct line between network devices. Place your devices so that the signal
travels 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 your wireless range. Try to position your extender and wireless network
devices so that the signal passes through drywalls 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 extender 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 equipment (wireless devices 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. Note, that the base transmits a signal even if the phone in
not in use.
