Section 2 - Installation

Installation

This section will guide 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 or cabinet, or in an attic or garage.

Connect.to.Your.Network

Note:.Ensure that your DWR-116 Wireless N300 Multi-WAN Router is disconnected and powered off before performing the installation steps below.

1. Connect a USB modem to the USB port located on the top of the router.

2. Insert an Ethernet network cable into the LAN port on the back of the router. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the LAN port of your computer or laptop. The Ethernet LED will turn green if the Ethernet connection is successfully established.

Note: The DWR-116 Wireless N300 Multi-WAN Router’s LAN ports are “Auto-MDI/MDIX.” Therefore, patch or crossover Ethernet cables can be used.

3. Configure the device using the setup utility.

Section 2 - Installation

Wireless.Installation.Considerations

The DWR-116 can be accessed using a wireless connection from virtually anywhere within the operating range of your wireless network. Keep in mind, however, that the quantity, thickness and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range. Ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home or office. The key to maximizing the wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:

1.Minimize the number of walls and ceilings between the router and other network devices. Each wall or ceiling can reduce your adapter’s range from 3 to 90 feet (1 to 30 meters).

2.Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (0.5 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.Try to position access points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through open doorways or drywall. Materials such as glass, metal, brick, insulation, concrete and water can affect wireless performance.

Large objects such as fish tanks, mirrors, file cabinets, metal doors and aluminum studs may also have a negative effect on range.

4.If you are using 2.4 GHz cordless phones, make sure that the 2.4 GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless device as possible. The base transmits a signal even if the phone in not in use. In some cases, cordless phones,

X-10 wireless devices, and electronic equipment such as ceiling fans, fluorescent lights, and home security systems may dramatically degrade wireless connectivity.

Wireless.Security

This section will show you the different levels of security you can use to protect your data from intruders. The

DWR-116 offers the following types of security:

• WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2)

• WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)

• WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

• WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)

• WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)

What.is.WEP?

WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. It is based on the IEEE 802.11 standard and uses the RC4 encryption algorithm. WEP provides security by encrypting data over your wireless network so that it is protected as it is transmitted from one wireless device to another.

To gain access to a WEP network, you must know the key. The key is a string of characters that you create. When using WEP, you must determine the level of encryption. The type of encryption determines the key length. 128-bit encryption requires a longer key than 64-bit encryption. Keys are defined by entering in a string in HEX (hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F) or ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange

– alphanumeric characters) format. ASCII format is provided so you can enter a string that is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to

HEX for use over the network. Four keys can be defined so that you can change keys easily.

D-Link DWR-116 User Manual 61

Section 4 - Security

What.is.WPA?

WPA, or 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 Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). EAP is built on a more secure public key encryption system to ensure that only authorized network users can access the network.

WPS/WCN.2.0

The router supports Wi-Fi protection, referred to as WCN 2.0 in Windows Vista®. The following instructions for setting this up depends on whether you are using Windows Vista® to configure the router or third party software.

When you first set up the router, Wi-Fi protection is disabled and not configured. To enjoy the benefits of Wi-Fi protection, the router must be both enabled and configured. There are three basic methods to accomplish this: use Windows Vista’s built-in support for WCN 2.0, use software provided by a third party, or manually configure.

If you are running Windows Vista®, log into the router and click the Enable checkbox in the Basic > Wireless section. Use the

Current PIN that is displayed on the Advanced > Wi-Fi.Protected.Setup section or choose to click the Generate.New.PIN button or Reset.PIN.to.Default button.

If you are using third party software to set up Wi-Fi Protection, carefully follow the directions. When you are finished, proceed to the next section to set up the newly-configured router.

Section 6 - Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of the DWR-116. 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 on the Internet or 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:

• Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher

• Netscape 8 or higher

• Mozilla 1.7.12 (5.0) or higher

• Opera 8.5 or higher

• Safari 1.2 or higher (with Java 1.3.1 or higher)

• Camino 0.8.4 or higher

• Firefox 1.5 or 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.

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 the 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.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics

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, such as two or more WNA-2330 wireless network Cardbus adapters.

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 laptops with wireless cardbus adapters. All the adapters must be in Ad-Hoc mode to communicate.
