This article teaches you how to set system IP and DHCP interface on D-Link switch.

Step 1: Open HyperTerminal and configure it for the Com port you are presently connected to, and use the following settings:

Bits Per Second – 9600
Data Bits – 8
Parity – None
Stop Bits – 1
Flow Control – None

Note: In the following steps, Console#, represents the command line prompt. If you have changed the name of your switch it will appear as the name, rather than console (ex DWS1008-01#).

Step 2: Login to the switch.
When prompted, enter the following information:
Password – (if you have not set a password leave this blank and press Enter)

Step 3: Type the following command to pull DHCP from an Interface other than the switch (such as a Router or Server):
Console# set interface default ip dhcp-server disable. Press Enter.
success: change accepted.
Console# set interface default ip dhcp-client enable. Press Enter.
success: change accepted.

Step 4: Type the following command to set the System IP on your switch:
Console# set system ip-address
success: change accepted.

Step 5: Type the following command to set the Default Gateway on your switch:
Console# set ip route default 1
success: change accepted.

Step 6: Type the following command to set the IP for Interface 1:
Console# set interface 1 ip
success: change accepted.

Step 7: Type the command: show config to verify your results:
(Console# show config)

The results will then be displayed, similar to the list shown below:

# Configuration nvgen´d at 2006-12-19 19:53:02
# Image
# Model DWS-1008
# Last change occurred at 2006-12-19 19:19:07
set ip route default 1
set system name DWS-1008-9193B0
set system ip-address
set enablepass password b6b706525e1814394621eeb2a1c4d5803fcf
set vlan 1 port 1
set vlan 1 port 2
set vlan 1 port 3
set vlan 1 port 4
set vlan 1 port 5
set vlan 1 port 6
set vlan 1 port 7
set vlan 1 port 8
set interface 1 ip

The following is a list of requirements:

  • The switch needs to have an IP set for interface VLAN1.
  • A DHCP server is required for this setup.
  • Another requirement is a CAPWAP address in WLAN menu.
  • Step 1: Log into the switch, by entering the IP address into the address bar of the web browser.

    Step 2: Enter your Username and Password. Click OK to enter the Web management.


    Step 3: Click the WLAN tab. From the left side, under System, select Main.


    Step 4: Enter the CAPWAP IP address and click Submit.


    After adding the CAPWAP address it is required to save the settings and reload the switch.

    Step 5: Click on the System tab. Under File Management, select Copy files. Select the radio button next to Copy Configuration and click Submit.


    Step 6: When finished copying, you will see the message, Copy Finished. Select Close.

    Step 7: Click on the Reboot Menu and then click the Reboot button.

    Step 8: Run the following command, in the CLI, to verify that the setting is correct:

    DES-32xx # show wlan


    console# show wlan
    CAPWAP IP address: (After reboot:
    Country code: US
    TX power is on
    Station idle-timeout: 30 minutes

    Step 9: Once you have the wireless portion enabled and configured, you can connect your Access Point to the switch and turn on the power.

    If this is new AP it may take a few minutes to show up

    Run the following command, in the CLI, and press Enter. The results will show all the discovered Access Points.

    DES-32xx # show wlan aps

    In GUI mode it will show as Not Active.


    Step 10: In the WEB GUI Interface, under the WLAN tab, select Access Points from the left and choose Properties.


    Step 11: Click on the Edit icon and then check the Enable AP box.


    For the security key enter 16 alphanumeric characters (1-9 or a-z) in the ASCII box of the Key configuration and click on Submit. Close that window and click Submit again on the Properties screen. You will then see the Access Point´s status as Active.


    Your Access Points should now get an IP address from the DHCP server. It is now ready for basic access and further configurations.

    Repeat the steps above to enable additional Access Points.

    Note: This procedure should only be done with a Fully Updated Version of Internet Explorer.
