Smart Connect creates a ”single” wireless network for your devices to connect to. Behind the scenes, the D-Link router automatically determines whether to connect a device to the 2.4 or 5 GHz band, thereby providing the best speed and range for each device and optimally distributing devices to each network. Smart Connect is enabled by default.

You can turn this feature off and assign separate Wi-Fi network names (SSID) and passwords for each band by following the steps below:

Step 1: Open your web browser and type in http://dlinkrouter.local. or type in the IP address of the router (default – http://192.168.0.1).

Step 2: Enter your password and click Log In.

Step 3: Go to Settings and click Wireless.

Step 4: Next to Smart Connect, click to disable.

Step 5: The wireless settings for each band will now appear. Configure your settings and then click Save.

Triple Play VLAN allows support for ISPs who offer a multi-service plan. Services such as Internet, voice (VoIP), and video (IPTV) can connect with a single WAN connection and you can then separate each channel to a specific port. For example, you can set all VoIP traffic to port 4 on the router and then connect any VoIP devices to that port.

 

Note: The D-Link DIR-890L requires firmware version 1.11B02.

 

To configure, follow the steps below:

 

Step 1: Open your web browser and type in http://dlinkrouter.local. or type in the IP address of the router (default – http://192.168.0.1).

 

 

Step 2: Enter your router password and then click Log In.

 

 

Step 3: Click on Settings and then click Internet.

 

Step 4: Click the VLAN tab (or click Advanced Settings).

 

 

Step 5: Click either VLAN Settings or Status to Enable.

 

Step 6: Enter the VLAN ID (supplied by your ISP) for each service. You can enable Priority ID and select from the drop-down for each service. Under Interface Traffic Type Settings, assign a service to a LAN port on the router. Click Save.

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.

This tutorial guide will show you how to set up a VPN on your D-Link router DIR-842 with the L2TP protocol. After setup, you may connect any number of devices to the VPN.

Note: L2TP/IPsec provides weak security benefits and should only be used for anonymization or for changing locations.

This tutorial was tested using D-Link DIR-842 (Firmware Version: 2.02). Please note some D-Link routers accept only IP addresses and not ExpressVPN server names, while others (e.g. the 225 models) don’t support VPN clients. ExpressVPN cannot provide support for these routers.

Before you begin, you may wish to make note of your default internet settings. This will help you revert to your original internet settings when the VPN is not needed.
