DWA-130 Description:

These products use the current draft version of the 802.11n standard. Compatibility with other draft-n and current 802.11n products is guaranteed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. However, some features were added in later revisions of the spec, and it is possible that they will not work correctly. In most cases a firmware upgrade will solve any problems (consider if you feel confident performing such an update). Also, while 802.11n is designed to be backwards compatible with 802.11g, 802.11b and 802.11a, it had been noticed that -n can interfere with the operation of current 802.11b and g products.


The 802.11n standard is based on MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) technology, which takes advantage of multiple data streams. This concept was considered a problem until someone figured out how to harness these many streams of data to improve both throughput and range. Most of the major wireless networking vendors started offering routers and adapters based on the initial approved draft in mid-2007, while the final specification was released in October 2009.

Pros: easy to install and manage
cheap price
does what it says on the box
doesn’t nag you constantly

Cons: nothing as of yet
Summary: highly recommended

Pros: Works on 32 bit Windows 7 OS
Affordable ($19 sale in Office Depot)
Fast and reliable
Easy to install
Comes with a cradle which is of big help

Cons: If only it’s a plug and play device then it would be much better since installing a driver thru CD is a thing in the past.

Pros: Easy to install, worked right away, reasonable price

Cons: If it were about a 1/2 inch shorter that would be nice, but not an unworkable problem.
Summary: I love stuff that works as advertised. Load the software, plug it in, start networking. No problems at all.

Multiple SSIDs are only supported in AP mode. One primary SSID and at most seven guest SSIDs (depending on model) can be configured to allow virtual segregation stations which share the same channel.

Furthermore, you can enable the VLAN State to allow the Business Class AP to work with VLAN-supported switches or other devices. When the Primary SSID is set to Open System without encryption, the Guest SSIDs can only be set to no encryption, WEP, WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal.

When the Primary SSIDs security is set to Open or Shared System WEP key, the Guest SSIDs can be set to use no encryption, use three other WEP keys, WPA-Personal, or WPA2-Personal.

When the Primary SSIDs security is set to WPA-Personal, WPA2-Personal, or WPA-Auto-Personal, slot 2 and slot 3 are used. The Guest SSIDs can be set to use no encryption, WEP, or WPA-Personal.

When the Primary SSIDs security is set to WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Enterprise, or WPA-Auto-Enterprise, the Guest SSIDs can be set to use any security.

Business Class APs listed in this FAQ will support VLANs. VLANs can be created with a Name and VID. Mgmt (TCP stack), LAN, Primary / Multiple SSID and WDS Connection can be assigned to VLAN as they are physical ports. Any packet that enters the AP without a VLAN tag will have a VLAN tag inserted with a PVID.

Step 1: As most APs, the default static IP address is

Step 2: Setup the AP with an IP Address pertaining to your Management Subnet.

Step 3: Prepare your Primary SSID in the Basic Settings.

Step 4: In Advanced Settings go into Multi-SSID to enable and start adding more SSIDs.


Step 5: Use the Index selection to activate the next SSID and configure the settings. Only by clicking on the ADD button will the next SSID be added to the AP. Add as many as you want or the amount supported by the AP from the Index list.

Step 6: In Advanced Settings select VLAN and Enable with the radio button. In the VLAN List, click on the edit icon to enter the default VLAN settings.

Step 7: In this default VLAN, maintain the Management and the LAN port, Untagged . Modify which SSIDs will belong to the default VLAN, though in most cases it´s only the Primary SSID. Once again, click on the ADD button to make the changes.


Step 8: Click on the ADD/EDIT VLAN tab, to add each of the next VLAN ID, Name and associated SSID. The LAN port has to be Tagged but the Management port set to Not A Member.


Step 9: Click on ADD for each addition. Confirm that all is assign correctly in the VLAN List.


Step 10: Click on the PVID Setting tab. Preferably set to Auto Assign if single VLANs are assign to each SSID. Click on Apply to finalize.
