D-Link’s new flagship Wi-Fi router (DIR-895L) is a prime example of the arms race among networking vendors since the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard was introduced.

Manufacturers have been steadily launching new routers, with each iteration touting higher transfer speeds. But these speeds are aggregated across multiple wireless bands and do not reflect the actual bandwidth available for a single client device.

For instance, the D-Link DIR-895L is marketed as an AC5300 router (5,300Mbps), derived by adding the transfer speeds from its three wireless bands. For a single client such as a smartphone or tablet, the DIR-895L will not be any faster than a basic AC1300 router.

But the D-Link’s dual 5GHz and single 2.4GHz bands are useful for homes that are increasingly cluttered with Wi-Fi devices. Older clients that support slower Wi-Fi speeds can be put into their own wireless bands without affecting other faster devices. The router does this automatically via a feature dubbed Smart Connect.

Because of the competition among manufacturers, advanced features often make their way into routers before they are widely adopted. These features usually stay dormant till the manufacturer deems it appropriate to enable them via a firmware update.

Take the Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) feature, which is not yet supported by most Wi-Fi clients. This feature lets the router send data wirelessly to multiple clients at the same time. It is currently disabled on the D-Link DIR-895L.

st_20160330_vcdlink30_8_2165634

Angular in profile, and with eight detachable and adjustable antennas, the red DIR-895L cuts an eye-catching figure. It can be mounted on a wall, though I am not comfortable doing so because the router is relatively heavy.

The DIR-895L has four Gigabit LAN ports at the back, along with a USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port.

Features that you’d expect from a modern router, such as parental controls, guest networks and the ability to share files over the Internet, are all supported.

The router’s web-based interface looks slick and is easy to navigate. By default, advanced features are hidden from users to reduce screen clutter.

However, the router can take varying amounts of time (from 25 seconds to 80 seconds) to save changes made to the settings. The good thing is that the interface always indicates the exact amount of time it expects to take. Still, I was expecting the router’s dual-core processor to run faster.

Performance could be better. The router recorded an average download speed of 501Mbps, which is significantly lower than the top speed of 695Mbps managed by one of its rivals, the Asus RT-AC5300 ($469).

Network Configuration:

This setup consists of separating two networks by the creating two VLANS on the DSR Series Service Router. This example will use the following setup:

Network 1 – 192.168.10.0 /24 – Default

Network 2 – 192.168.20.0 /24 – VLAN20

Step 1 – Enter the web GUI interface of the DSR using its IP address in a web browser. In our example we have used the IP address of 192.168.10.1

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS1

Accept any certificate warnings you may see, this is perfectly normal and safe

Step 2 – You should then be presented with the login page

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS2

Username: admin

Password: admin

Click “Login”

Step 3 – Click on the following options to setup VLANS

Network > VLAN > VLAN Settings

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS3

Step 4 – Here you must firstly enable VLAN then click “Save”

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS4

Step 5 – Once saved, click “Add New VLAN”

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS5

VLAN IP: 20
Name: VLAN20
Capital Portal: Off
Activate InterVLAN Routing: Off
(InterVLAN Routing can stay “Off” this way there is no way that both networks will see each other
Multi VLAN Subnet: 192.168.20.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Step 5 – Click on the option “DHCP Server”

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS6

Domain Name:
DHCP_VLAN20

Starting IP Address: 192.168.20.2

Ending IP Address: 192.168.20.254

Default Gateway: 192.168.20.1

Primary DNS Server: 8.8.8.8

Secondary DNS Server: 8.8.4.4.

Lease Time: 24

LAN Proxy: On (Default)

If you have a DHCP available for this new subnet, then click “DHCP Relay” and configure according to this network requirements. Once done, click “Save”

Within our example, we have used VLANID 20 for network 192.168.20.0/24. After clicking on “Save” our second VLAN will have been created

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS7

Step 6 – The next step is to associate the VLAN with a port or certain ports. We will associate with Port 4

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS8

Network > VLAN > Port VLAN

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS9

Step 7
– In our example we are going to associate VLAN20 to Port 4. To do this, place the mouse over Port 4 and Right-Click then click on “Edit”

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS10

Step 8 – Once clicked on “Edit”, we will need to select “Mode” as “Access” with a PVID 20 (Step 5)

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS11

Once done, click on “Save”

DSR_Series_FW2_How_to_setup_Two_VLANS12

NOTE: If you intend to connect a non-manageable switch to port 4 which doesn’t support VLANS then the mode “Access” is correct.

However, if you are planning to connect a manageable switch that does understand VLANS then you will need to select “Trunk” and VLAN Membership 20
