IPv6 over PPPoE

After selecting the IPv6 over PPPoE option, the user will be able to configure the IPv6 Internet connection that requires a username and password to get online.Most DSL modems use this type of connection.

The following parameters will be available for configuration:


PPPoE Session: Select the PPPoE Session value used here. This option will state that this connection shares it’s
information with the already configured IPv6 PPPoE connection, or the user can create a new PPPoE connection here.

User Name: Enter the PPPoE username used here. If you do not know your user name, please contact your ISP.

Password: Enter the PPPoE password used here. If you do not know your password, please contact your ISP.

Verify Password: Re-enter the PPPoE password used here.

Service Name: Enter the service name for this connection here. This option is optional.

Static IPv6 Address Connection

This mode is used when your ISP provides you with a set IPv6 addresses that does not change. The IPv6 information is manually entered in your IPv6 configuration settings. You must enter the IPv6 address, Subnet Prefix Length, Default Gateway, Primary DNS Server, and Secondary DNS Server. Your ISP provides you with all this information.


Use Link-Local Address:

The Link-local address is used by nodes and routers when communicating with neighboring nodes on the same link.
This mode enables IPv6-capable devices to communicate with each other on the LAN side.

IPv6 Address:

Enter the WAN IPv6 address for the router here.

Subnet Prefix Length:

Enter the WAN subnet prefix length value used here.

Default Gateway:

Enter the WAN default gateway IPv6 address used here.

Primary IPv6 DNS Address:

Enter the WAN primary DNS Server address used here.

Secondary IPv6 DNS Address:

Enter the WAN secondary DNS Server address used here.

LAN IPv6 Address:

These are the settings of the LAN (Local Area Network)IPv6 interface for the router. The router’s LAN IPv6 Address
configuration is based on the IPv6 Address and Subnet assigned by your ISP. (A subnet with prefix /64 is supported in LAN.)

D-Link DWL-2600AP Access Point Ethernet Settings

The default wired interface settings, which include DHCP and VLAN information, might not work for all networks.By default, the DHCP client on the UAP automatically broadcasts requests for network information. If you want to use a static IP address, you must disable the DHCP client and manually configure the IP address and other network information.

The management VLAN is VLAN 1 by default. This VLAN is also the default untagged VLAN. If you already have a management VLAN configured on your network with a different VLAN ID, you must change the VLAN ID of the management VLAN on the AP.
To configure the LAN settings, click the Ethernet Settings tab.


The following table describes the fields to view or configure on the Ethernet Settings page.


Enter a hostname for the AP. The hostname appears in the CLI prompt.

•) The hostname has the following requirements:
•) The length must be between 1 – 63 characters.
•) Upper and lower case characters, numbers, and hyphens are accepted.
•) The first character must be a letter (a – z or A – Z), and the last character cannot be a hyphen.

MAC Address

Shows the MAC address for the LAN interface for the Ethernet port on this AP. This is a read-only field that you cannot change.

Management VLAN ID

The management VLAN is the VLAN associated with the IP address you use to access the AP. The default management VLAN ID is 1.Provide a number between 1 and 4094 for the management VLAN ID.

Untagged VLAN

If you disable the untagged VLAN, all traffic is tagged with a VLAN ID.By default all traffic on the UAP uses VLAN 1, which is the default untagged VLAN. This means that all traffic is untagged until you disable the untagged VLAN, change the untagged traffic VLAN ID, or change the VLAN ID for a VAP or client using RADIUS.

Untagged VLAN ID

Provide a number between 1 and 4094 for the untagged VLAN ID. Traffic on the VLAN that you specify in this field will not be tagged with a VLAN ID.

Connection Type

If you select DHCP, the UAP acquires its IP address, subnet mask, DNS, and gateway information from a DHCP server.

If you select Static IP, you must enter information in the Static IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway fields.

Static IP Address

Enter the static IP address in the text boxes. This field is disabled if you use DHCP as the connection type.

Subnet Mask

Enter the Subnet Mask in the text boxes.

Default Gateway

Enter the Default Gateway in the text boxes.

DNS Nameservers

Select the mode for the DNS.
In Dynamic mode, the IP addresses for the DNS servers are assigned automatically via DHCP. This option is only available if you specified DHCP for the Connection Type. In Manual mode, you must assign static IP addresses to resolve domain names.

IPv6 Admin Mode

Enable or disable IPv6 management access to the AP

IPv6 Auto Config Admin Mode

Enable or disable IPv6 auto address configuration on the AP.When IPv6 Auto Config Mode is enabled, automatic IPv6 address configuration and gateway configuration is allowed by processing the Router Advertisements received on the LAN port.
The AP can have multiple auto configured IPv6 addresses.

Static IPv6 Address

Enter a static IPv6 address. The AP can have a static IPv6 address even if addresses have already been configured automatically.

Static IPv6 Address Prefix Length

Enter the static IPv6 prefix length, which is an integer in the range of 0 – 128.

IPv6 Autoconfigured Global Addresses

If the AP has been assigned one or more IPv6 addresses automatically, the addresses are listed.

IPv6 Link Local Address

Shows the IPv6 Link Local address, which is the IPv6 address used by the local physical link. The link local address is not configurable and is assigned by using the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery process.

Note: After you configure the wired settings, you must click Apply to apply the changes and to save the settings. Changing some settings might cause the AP to stop and restart system processes. If this happens, wireless clients will temporarily lose connectivity. We recommend that you change AP settings when WLAN traffic is low.

D-Link DWL-2600AP Access Point Wireless Settings

Wireless settings describe aspects of the local area network (LAN) related specifically to the radio device in the access point (802.11 Mode and Channel) and to the network interface to the access point (MAC address for access point and Wireless Network name, also known as SSID).

To configure the wireless interface, click the Manage > Wireless Settings tab.

The following table describes the fields and configuration options available on the Wireless Settings page.

TSPEC Violation Interval

Specify the time interval (in seconds) for the AP to report (through the system log and SNMP traps) associated clients that do not adhere to mandatory admission control procedures.


Radio Interface

Specify whether you want the radio interface on or off.

MAC Address

Indicates the Media Access Control (MAC) addresses for the interface. Dual-radio APs have a unique MAC address for each radio.
A MAC address is a permanent, unique hardware address for any device that represents an interface to the network. The MAC address is assigned by the manufacturer. You cannot change the MAC address. It is provided here for informational purposes as a unique identifier for an interface.


The Mode defines the Physical Layer (PHY) standard the radio uses.

Note: The modes available depend on the country code setting and the radio selected.Select one of the following modes for radio 1:•) IEEE 802.11a is a PHY standard that specifies operating in the 5 GHz U-NII band using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). It supports data rates ranging from 6 to 54 Mbps.

•) IEEE 802.11a/n operates in the 5 GHz ISM band and includes support for both 802.11a and 802.11n devices. IEEE 802.11n is an extension of the 802.11 standard that includes multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology. IEEE 802.11n supports data ranges of up to 248 Mbps and nearly twice the indoor range of 802.11 b, 802.11g, and 802.11a.

•) 5 GHz IEEE 802.11n is the recommended mode for networks with 802.11n devices that operate in the 5 GHz frequency that do not need to support 802.11a devices. IEEE 802.11n can achieve a higher throughput when it does not need to be compatible with legacy devices (802.11a). Select one of the following modes for radio 2:

•) IEEE 802.11b/g operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. IEEE 802.11b is an enhancement of the initial 802.11 PHY to include 5.5 Mbps and 11 Mbps data rates. It uses direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) or frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
as well as complementary code keying (CCK) to provide the higher data rates. It supports data rates ranging from 1 to 11 Mbps. IEEE 802.11g is a higher speed extension (up to 54 Mbps) to the 802.11b PHY. It uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). It supports data rates ranging from 1 to 54 Mbps.

•) IEEE 802.11b/g/n operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band and includes support for 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n devices.

•) 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.11n is the recommended mode for networks with 802.11n devices that operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency that do not need to support 802.11b/g devices. IEEE 802.11n can achieve a higher throughput when it does not need to be compatible with legacy devices (802.11b/g).


Select the Channel.

The range of available channels is determined by the mode of the radio interface and the country code setting. If you select Auto for the channel setting, the AP scans available channels and selects a channel where no traffic is detected. The Channel defines the portion of the radio spectrum the radio uses for transmitting and receiving. Each mode offers a number of channels, depending on how the spectrum is licensed by national and transnational authorities such as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) or the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-R). When automatic channel assignment is enabled on the Channel Management page for Clustering, the channel policy for the radio is automatically set to static mode, and the Auto option is not available for the Channel field. This allows the automatic channel feature to set the channels for the radios in the cluster.
