The use of load balancing with multiple WAN links can provide simultaneous outbound traffic efficiency and optimizing bandwidth. The following is a typical scenario of load balancing that involves all Internet traffic and can dynamically share the WAN links RoundRobin Algorithm.

DSR_how_to_setup_load_balancing_with_multiple_wan_links_FW_21

Step 1 – Login to the DSR using its IP address

DSR_how_to_setup_load_balancing_with_multiple_wan_links_FW_22

Network > WAN Mode

DSR_how_to_setup_load_balancing_with_multiple_wan_links_FW_23

Step 2 – Select “Load Balancing” from the drop-down list and select “Round Robin

DSR_how_to_setup_load_balancing_with_multiple_wan_links_FW_24

Round Robin:

This is when the new Internet connections alternate between WANs available.

Spillover:

This will use a single WAN link for all connections up until the maximum bandwidth limit (pre-configured) has been reached. After that the other WAN link is used for the new connections

Step 3 – For the DSR to check the status of connections WANs have three options to configure WAN health check. They are as follows:

DSR_how_to_setup_load_balancing_with_multiple_wan_links_FW_25

  • WAN DNS Servers (This will use the DNS servers configured in the WAN)
  • DNS Servers (This allows you to enter the addresses you want to use)
  • PingThese IP Addresses (This allows you to enter the public IP address you want)

Once you have selected the verification mode, click “Save

Note:

Binding Protocol – Network > Routing > Protocol Binding

DSR_how_to_setup_load_balancing_with_multiple_wan_links_FW_27

This is a key component with regards to “Load Balancing”.

This protocol allows a specific service to be associated with one of the available WAN links.

A description of this can be seen below:

  • Service: The user specifies the service name (choosing from the list of predefined or custom services). Custom services can be configured in the Firewall Menu – Security > Firewall > Custom Services

DSR_how_to_setup_load_balancing_with_multiple_wan_links_FW_28

 

  • Local Gateway: You can assign a specific WAN link to the service configured above
  • Source Network: The user specifies the LAN hosts assigned to the Protocol-Binding rule. Only those hosts that are linked to the protocol can therefore transmit or receive traffic through the WAN selected, meanwhile the other hosts will transmit traffic via the other WAN port(s). The user may choose to assign the rule for any host or a single machine within the LAN and / or alongside hosts within an IP pool.
  • Destination Network: The user specifies the LAN hosts assigned to the Protocol Binding Rule. The user can choose to assign the rule to any host, a single machine on the LAN or set of hosts within a pools of IP addresses

When a user adds a rule, the device updates the new entry and displays it in the Protocol Bindings List table. The table shows information about the service, the network source and destination and also if the link-up is enabled or not. The user can enable, disable and or edit a binding standard and also remove configured links if and when needed.

Network Configuration:

This setup consists of two networks separated by two VLANS. This example will use the following setup:

Network 1 – 192.168.10.0 /24 – SSID: NET – Corporate Wireless Network
Network 2 – 172.16.0.0 /16 – SSID: Guest – Wireless Guest Network

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0001

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_How_to_setup_captive_portal0012

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

Step 2 – We first now need to create VLANs to separate the traffic

Network > VLAN Settings

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0023

Step 3 – Click on “Add New VLAN”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0029

VLAN ID: 100
Name: Guest
Captive Portal: ON
Multi VLAN Subnet
IP Address: 172.16.0.1
Subnet: 255.255.0.0
Use the scroll bar to the left to scroll down…

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0030

DHCP Mode: DHCP
Domain Name: Guest
Starting IP Address: 172.16.0.2
Ending IP Address: 172.16.0.1
Primary DNS Server: 172.16.0.1
Lease Time: 24
Click “Save”

Step 4 – We should see the following summary for our VLANS

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0031

Step 5 – We need to create our two profiles, “NET” and “Guest”

Wireless > Profiles

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0032

Step 6 – Right-click on “default1” and click “Edit”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0033

Step 7 – Change the default values to your SSID. In our example we are using “NET” as our corporative wireless SSID

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0034

SSID: NET
Broadcast SSID: ON
Security: WPA+WPA2
Encryption: TKIP+CCMP
Authentication: PSK
WPA Password: (enter a password for this SSID)
Click “Save”

Step 8 – Click on “Add New Profile” to create a profile for our Guest SSID

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0002

Profile Name: Guest
SSID: Guest
Broadcast SSID: ON
Security: OPEN (Due to our Guest users will need to authenticate with a user and password we will define later)
Click “Save”

Step 9 – You should have two Wireless Profiles (as per our example)

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0003

Step 10 – We now need to add an extra access-point to our configuration to deal with the profile “Guest”

Wireless > Access Points

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0004

Step 11 – Click on “Add New Access Point”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0005

AP Name: ap2
Profile Name: Guest (Drop down box to display profiles available)
WLAN Partition: ON
*Active Time: Here you can set a time for from and to you would like the access-point to be available.

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0006

In our example, we have chosen not to use this feature

Click “Save”

Step 12 – We now need to associate the Guest SSID to VLAN100

Network > Port VLAN

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0007

Step 13 – Right-click on “Guest” and enter for PVID 100 (The VLAN we created in step 3)

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0008

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0009

Click “Save”

Step 14 – So that our guest users are able to login and authenticate against the local database, we need to add a new Group – Security > Internal User Database > Groups

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0010

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0011

Step 15 – Click on “Add New Group”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0013

Group Name: CP
Description: Captive Portal
User Type: Network  Captive Portal User: ON
Idle Timeout: 10

Click “Save”

Group List Summary:

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0014

Step 16 – We now need to a associate a User to our new Group – Security > Internal User Database > Users

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0015

Step 17
– Click on “Add New User”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0016

User Name
: CP
First Name: CP
Last Name: CP
Select Group: CP
MultiLogin: ON
Password: (Enter the password the guest will need to use for authentication)

Click “Save”

Users List Summary:

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0017

Login from a Laptop with Window 7:

Step 18 – Open your wireless card adapter and now search for SSID “Guest”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0018

Step 19 – Once connected, open a web browser and try to go to a web site, for example dlink.com

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0019

Username: CP (User created in Step 17)

Password: (Password created in Step 17)

Click “Login”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0020

Login from a Windows Phone:

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0021

Login from an iPad:

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0025DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0024DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0022

Step 20 – To see the clients connected – Status > Network Information > CaptivePortal Sessions

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0026

Step 21 – Within this section you are able to manage ALL connected devices by right-clicking over the session and choose between; “Disconnect” or “Blocking Device”

DSR_Series_How_to_setup_captive_portal0027

Disconnect – This will simply disconnect the wireless device from the session and will be forced to login via the portal

Block Device – This will block the wireless device and will automatically be placed into the Firewall Blocked Client List
