Signal strength drop or fluctuation are common causes of RF interference.

Try these basic troubleshooting steps:

  • Change the channel on your access point or wireless router.
  • Change the location of your wireless products. Subtle changes (2-3 feet) can make a big difference. Do not put the access point or wireless router in a cabinet or enclosure.
  • 2.4GHz phones, X-10, and bluetooth devices will interfere with your wireless network. Change the location of the base for your phone, or downgrade to 900Mhz phones, or upgrade to 5.8GHz phones.
  • The wireless signal will degrade (or die completely) when going through brick (fireplace), metal (file cabinet), steel, lead, mirrors, water (fish tank), large appliances, glass, etc.

It is recommended to configure data rate on your wireless access point before your wireless adapters. Most wireless adapters will “find” your wireless network by the SSID you assigned to the access point, and then will automatically lock onto the data rate of the access point.

Note: It is strongly recommended to keep this setting at Auto.

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the DWL-2100AP by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the Access Point (

Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK.
