The easiest and most secure way to connect your wireless devices to the router is WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). Most wireless devices such as wireless adapters, media players, Blu-ray DVD players, wireless printers and cameras will have a WPS button (or a software utility with WPS) that you can press to connect to the DIR-506L router. Please refer to your user manual for the wireless device you want to connect to make sure you understand how to enable WPS. Once you know, follow the steps below:

Step 1 – Press the WPS button on the DIR-506L for about 1 second. The WPS button will start to blink.

Step 2 – Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on your wireless client (or launch the software utility and start the WPS process).

Step 3 – Allow up to 1 minute to configure. Once the WPS light stops blinking, you will be connected and your wireless
connection will be secure with WPA2.

It is recommended to enable wireless security (WPA/WPA2) on your wireless router or access point before configuring your wireless adapter. If you are joining an existing network, you will need to know the security key or passphrase being used.

1. Click on the wireless icon in your system tray (lower-right corner).

2. The utility will display any available wireless networks in your area.

3. Highlight the wireless network (SSID) you would like to connect to and click the Connect button.If you get a good signal but cannot access the Internet, check your TCP/IP settings for your wireless adapter. Refer to the Networking
Basics section in this manual for more information.

4. The following window appears while your computer tries to connect to the router.

5. Enter the same security key or passphrase that is on your router and click Connect. You can also connect by pushing the WPS button on the router.

It may take 20-30 seconds to connect to the wireless network. If the connection fails, please verify that the security settings are correct. The key or passphrase must be exactly the same as on the wireless router.
