DI-624S User’s Manual
Introduction
Introduction
The D-Link AirPlus Xtreme GTM DI-624S High-Speed Wireless Storage 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-624S provides data transfers at up to 108 Mbps (compared to the standard
54Mbps) when used with other D-Link AirPlus Xtreme GTM 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 .
For home users that will not incorporate a RADIUS server in their network, the security for the DI-624S,
used in conjunction with other 802.11g products, will still be much stronger than ever before. Utilizing
the Pre Shared Key mode of WPA, the DI-624S will obtain a new security key every time it connects
to the 802.11g network. You only need to input your encryption information once in the configuration
menu. No longer will you have to manually input a new WEP key frequently to ensure security, with the
DI-624S, you will automatically receive a new key every time you connect, vastly increasing the safety
of your communications.

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-624S User’s Manual
Wireless Basics
Standards-Based Technology
The DI-624S Wireless 108G Storage Router utilizes the new 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 high-speed 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-624S 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.

Wireless Basics
Installation Considerations
The D-Link AirPlus Xtreme GTM DI-624S 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-624S 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 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 extreme RF noise.

The DI-624S can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing Web or FTP
services via the public IP address can be automatically redirected to local servers in the LAN (Local
Area Network).
The DI-624S firewall feature filters out unrecognized packets to protect your LAN network so all
computers networked with the DI-624S 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-624S redirects the external service request to the appropriate server
within the LAN network.
The DI-624S 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

Troubleshooting
This Chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of
the DI-624S 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-624S Wireless Broadband Router.
1.The computer used to configure the DI-624S cannot access the Configuration menu.
 Check that the Ethernet LED on the DI-624S 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-624S. Please
see Checking the IP Address in Windows XP in the Networking Basics section of this
manual.
Note: The IP Address of the DI-624S 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-624S 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-624S.

default
 Check that the IP Address assigned to the wireless adapter is within the same IP
Address range as the access point and gateway. (Since the DI-624S has an IP Address
of 192.168.0.1, 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

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-624S. 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-624S, you must also enable encryption on all wireless clients
in order to establish a wireless connection.
 For 802.11g, 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-624S and the wireless client into the same room and then test the wireless
connection.
 Disable all security settings. (WEP, MAC Address Control)

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Why can´t I access the web-based configuration?
When entering the IP Address of the DI-624S (192.168.0.1), you are not connecting to 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.
To resolve difficulties accessing a web 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
Computer/XBOX/PS2 to DWL-810
Computer/XBOX/PS2 to DWL-900AP+
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)

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 straight-through 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

How do I open ports 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 the Advanced on top

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, UDP, or both. If you are not sure, select both.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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 or Macintosh
operating systems please refer to Step 4 of the first question in this section (Frequently Asked
Questions).

Frequently Asked Questions
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 whole 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I send or receive a file via iChat when the Mac OSX firewall is active? -for
Macintosh users- Mac OS X 10.2 and later
The following information is from the online Macintosh AppleCare knowledge base:
“iChat cannot send or receive a file when the Mac OS X firewall is active in its default state. If you have
opened the AIM port, you may be able to receive a file but not send them.
In its default state, the Mac OS X firewall blocks file transfers using iChat or America Online AIM
software. If either the sender or receiver has turned on the Mac OS X firewall, the transfer may be
blocked.
The simplest workaround is to temporarily turn off the firewall in the Sharing preference pane on both
computers. This is required for the sender. However, the receiver may keep the firewall on if the AIM
port is open. To open the AIM port:
Step 1 Choose Apple menu > System Preferences.
Step 2 Choose View > Sharing.
Step 3 Click the Firewall tab.
Step 4 Click New.
Step 5 Choose AOL IM from the Port Name pop-up menu. The number 5190 should
already be filled in for you.
Step 6 Click OK.
If you do not want to turn off the firewall at the sending computer, a different file sharing service may
be used instead of iChat. The types of file sharing available in Mac OS X are outlined in technical
document 106461, “Mac OS X: File Sharing” in the AppleCare Knowledge base online.
Note: If you use a file sharing service when the firewall is turned on, be sure to click the Firewall tab
and select the service you have chosen in the “Allow” list. If you do not do this, the firewall will also
block the file sharing service. “

Frequently Asked Questions
What is NAT?
NAT stands for Network Address Translator. It is proposed and described in RFC-1631 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-604) support NAT. With proper configuration, multiple users can
access the Internet using a single account via the NAT device.
