For best results, the range extender needs to be placed in an area where it receives good signal from the extending source (router).

If the extender is placed in an area where signal strength is poor, it will not be able to properly extend the signal.

D-Link suggests placing the extender approximately half way between the source (router) and the desired area you want to provide coverage to.

Proper Placement

Improper Placement

 

 

Note: The D-Link DAP-1325, DAP-1330, DAP-1620, DAP-1720, DAP-1820, and DAP-1860 have a built in Signal Strength Indicator LEDs. The more lit bars on the Signal Indicator LED, the better the wireless signal.

 

To improve the connection quality, the extender should be relocated closer to the home wireless router.

Having a closed or limited NAT on your gaming console will cause a variety of issues.

The Playstation offers Type 3, Type 2 and Type 1 NAT results. These break down as follows:

Type 1 – Connected directly to the internet (no router/firewall). Should have no issues.

Type 2 – Connected through a router properly. Should have no issues.

Type 3 – Connected through a router without open ports or DMZ setup for Playstation. Everything should function properly, but you may have connection, voice chat or other issues.

To obtain a NAT type 2 please ensure the following:
  1. Your router is NOT double nat’d (connected to another router or modem/router). You can tell this by checking your D-Link’s routers WAN IP address. If the IP address starts with a 192, 169, or 10 this usually means your modem is also acting as a router and is more than likely causing the problem. You would need to contact your Internet Service Provider/ modem provider to put the modem in bridge mode or to have them disable its routing features.
  2. If your router is connected direct to a modem and is getting a proper public WAN IP address, you may need to open ports for the PlayStation 3. Typically TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP ports: 5223, 3478, 3479, 3658 need to be open.
