Step 1: Log into the setup page of the DWC-1000.

Step 2: Go to the Advanced tab. Click on AP Profile.


Step 3: The Profile Status shows the current state of the profile:

  • Configured: The AP Profile is created, but no access points are associated to the Profile
  • Associated: The AP Profile is applied to the access points
  • Associated – Modified: The AP Profile has been modified, but changes haven’t been applied to the APs

Step 4: Check the checkbox for the desired AP Profile. Click on the Apply button.

A message will appear stating the APs will restart, and clients will be disconnected during this time. Click Ok to proceed with pushing out the profile to the APs.


Step 5: When the profile has been pushed to the APs, the Profile Status will change to Associated.

Hardware Overview LEDs


Diag. -The light will blink during boot up system auto-check.Once the access point is ready, the light will be off.

5 GHz – When lit, the access point is operating at 5GHz. This light will blink when there is wireless traffic.

2.4 GHz – When lit, the access point is operating at 2.4GHz.This light will blink when there is wireless traffic.

LAN1, LAN2 – Solid light when the Ethernet port is connected to a working port, such as a router or switch. The light will blink
when there is traffic through LAN port.

POWER – The light will blink during boot up. Once solid, the access point is ready.

Installing the Hardware


You may power the access point using one of the following methods.

1. Use the power adapter included in the package

2. Connect the access point to an external power-over-Ethernet (POE) switch


You may configure the access point using one of the following methods.

1. Directly connect the access point to a computer. You may then configure the access point through its graphical user interface (GUI).

2. Connect the access point to your computer using the included console cable. You may then configure the access point through its command
line interface (CLI)

Mounting Plate Assembly

Step 1: Insert the provided wall anchors in the wall where the mounting plate will be attached.


Step 2: Use the provided screws to secure the mounting plate on the wall.


Step 3: Attach the remaining screws securely to the back of the D-Link DWL-8610AP.


Step 4: Attach the DWL-8610AP to the mounting plate.


Step 5: Slide the DWL-8610AP down into the grooves on the mounting plate to secure it to the plate.

This section will explain how to connect Ethernet devices to your new D-Link switch and how to mount the switch.

Before You Connect to the Network

The site where you install the switch may greatly affect its performance. Please follow these guidelines for setting up the switch.


Install the switch on a sturdy, level surface that can support at least 3 kg (6.6 lbs.) of weight. Do not place heavy objects on the switch.

• The power outlet should be within 1.82 meters (6 feet) of the switch.

• Visually inspect the power cord and see that it is fully secured to the AC power port.

• Make sure that there is adequate space for proper heat dissipation from and adequate ventilation around the switch. Leave at least 10 cm (4 inches) of space at the front and rear of the switch for ventilation.

Install the switch in a fairly cool and dry place for the acceptable temperature and humidity operating ranges.

• Install the switch in a site free from strong electromagnetic field generators (such as motors), vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.

• When installing the switch on a level surface, attach the rubber feet to the bottom of the device. The rubber feet cushion the switch, protect the casing from scratches, and prevent it from scratching other surfaces.

Mounting the switch on a Rack

The DGS-1016D/1024D can easily be mounted on a rack. Two mounting ears are provided for this purpose. Make sure that the front panel is exposed in order to view the LEDs. Please refer to the following illustrations:

D-Link DGS-1016D-Install

1. Attach the ears to each side of the switch, using the screw-holes located on the side of the device.

2. Firmly attach the ears to the rack as shown. Please follow the usual safety precautions for rack-mountable products.

Attaching the Rubber Feet

Use rubber feet provided. Position and apply rubber feet to the underside of the DGS-1016D/1024D switch.

CAUTION: Do not place any device on top of switch, or place the switch on top of any device or object that will block the free flow of air through the ventilation slots on the sides, top, and bottom of the switch’s case. In addition, care should be taken not to locate the switch next to, on top of, or underneath any device that generates a significant amount of heat.

D-Link DGS-1016D-Install1

For the switch to perform at its optimal level, the switch must have adequate ventilation to prevent the switch from overheating and becoming damaged.

Power On

To power on the switch, Plug-in the female connector of the provided power cord into this socket, and the male side of the cord into a suitable power source.

After the Switch is powered on, the LED indicators will blink briefly while the system resets.

Power Failure

As a precaution, in the event of a power failure, unplug the switch. When power is resumed, plug the switch back in.

Cable Quality

NOTE: All Ethernet ports auto-detect MDI-II/MDI-X, port speed (10, 100, 1000Mbps) and duplex of the device connected to the switch.

• For connections to 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX devices, use Category 5 or 5e UTP/STP cable.
• For connections to 1000BASE-T and 100BASE-TX devices, use Category 5e or better UTP/STP cable. All 1000BASE-T connections operate in full duplex mode.

NOTE: UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) Ethernet cabling is adequate for most small office environments. More expensive STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) can also be used, but is generally only needed where there will be risk of strong Electromagnetic of Radio Frequency Interference.

Connecting the Switch

DGS-1016D/1024D to End Node

End nodes include PCs outfitted with a 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps RJ-45 Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) and most routers. An end node can be connected to the switch via a twisted-pair Category 3, 4, 5, or 5e UTP/STP cable. The end node can be connected to any of the ports of the switch.

The Link/Act LEDs for each UTP port light green when the link is valid. The LED over the port label indicates a port speed of either 10/100 Mbps or 1000Mbps. A blinking LED on the bottom indicates packet activity on that port.

Hub/switch to DGS-1016D/1024D

These connections can be accomplished in a number of ways using a standard Ethernet cable.

• A 10BASE-T hub or switch can be connected to the switch via a twisted-pair Category 3, 4, 5, or 5e UTP/STP cable.
• A 100BASE-TX hub or switch can be connected to the switch via a twisted-pair Category 5/5e UTP/STP cable.
• A 1000BASE-T switch can be connected to the switch via a twisted -pair Category 5/5e or better UTP/STP cable.
