client mode

Client Mode allows the D-Link DWL-2100AP to become a wireless client to another AP or wireless router. Client mode allows any device with an Ethernet connection to connect to your wireless network, such as a printer, gaming console (Xbox, PS2), or a computer.

You will need the MAC address of the device you want to be a client to. If you are connecting to a wireless router, then you must use the LAN or Ethernet MAC address, not the wireless address.

Step 1: Connect the DWL-2100AP to your PC using an Ethernet cable. You cannot connect to the DWL-2100AP wirelessly when in client mode.

Step 2: Your computer will need to be in the same IP address range as the DWL-2100AP for configuration. The default IP address is 192.168.0.50.

Step 3: Open a web browser and enter in the IP address of the access point (192.168.0.50). The username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing).

Step 4: Click on Advanced at the top and then click Mode on the left side. At the bottom, click the AP Client button. Enter the MAC address of the device you want to repeat (IE 50:23:AB:D4:56:E1).

Q: Why does my Web Smart switch(DGS-1216T) always log me out when moving from page to page or link to link?

A: Please ensure that you are using Internet Explorer 6.0.x or higher when configuring D-Link Web Smart switches, as other browsers or earlier versions of IE may cause some minor problems. You will not be logged out of your switch when using Internet Explorer 6.0.x or higher.

Q: Why are my ping request slower when using D-Link Web SMART Switches?

A: Since the Web Smart switches are not as robust in features as fully managed switches, they have a slower CPU. Therefore, depending on what process Web Smart switch is currently running, the ping response time will be varied and longer.

Q: What is a Combo Port on an Ethernet Switch?

A: A Gigabit Ethernet Combo port is an Ethernet port and a Mini-GBIC port (also called SFP´s) that share the same switch fabric and port number. A Combo port is a way to provide different types of connectivity without taking up unused switch fabric. These Combo ports can also be labeled as tied, meaning two different physical ports that can only be used one at a time. A Gigabit Ethernet Combo port consists of one 1000Base-T Gigabit over Copper port (provided), and one Mini-GBIC port (empty port that requires Mini-GBIC module).

Q: Why can´t I share my Internet connection to multiple computers when using my D-Link switch or hub?

A: If you are connecting directly to a Cable or DSL modem, you will need a router to share your Internet connection or a computer using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) or Proxy. Switches and hubs do not allow you to share a single IP address to multiple computers.

Another alternative is to contact your ISP and purchase extra IP addresses for each additional computer.

The following article is for for most Cable connections such as Adelphia, AOL (Earthlink), ATnT, Cox, Comcast, Charter, Knology, Optimum Online (Cablevision), RCN, RoadRunner (Time Warner), and Rogers.

If you have trouble connecting to your modem, you may need to lock the speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps.

In the web-based configuration utility for the D-Link DIR-655, go to Tools > Misc and the option to select the WAN speed will be towards the bottom.

Step 1: Login the web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin  and the password is blank (nothing).

If the router is already online, you will be taken to the STATUS page after logging in. If this is the case, the router is connected and you do not need to continue with this FAQ.

Step 2: Click the Setup tab and then click the Internet button.
