D-Link announced the Unified Wireless Controller (DWC-2000), a new centralized Wireless LAN manager designed specifically for education, hospitality and medium-to-large enterprises. The DWC-2000 can support up to 256 access points per controller, and up to 1,024 access points in a controller peer group, making it a cost-effective mobility solution suitable for medium and large scale deployments.


The D-Link DWC-2000 offers self-organizing, self-optimizing and self-healing network capabilities to increase the stability of the entire wireless network. Capable of regular radio scanning, the DWC-2000 automatically tunes radio channels and power to avoid interference and keep the wireless network optimized. To make up for a sudden RF signal vacuum created by a “dead” access point, the DWC-2000 increases the transmission output power of neighboring access points to expand RF coverage for a reliable, high performance network.

“Unlike competing solutions that require the purchase of additional licenses to manage even one access point, the DWC-2000 supports 64 access points right out of the box,” said Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “For larger installations greater than 64 APs, we do offer licenses that increase support for up to 256 APs per controller.”

About the DWC-2000

The DWC-2000 offers features such as auto-managed AP discovery and single-point management, which allow users to achieve enterprise-class networking without the burden of executing massive and complex configurations. A guest account generation function manages guest user bandwidth and accessibility to network resources.

Additional benefits include:

  • Comprehensive Wireless Security: The Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS) detects rogue access points, rogue clients and anticipates wireless threats to help prevent potential breaches and illegal access before any damage is done to the network.
  • Captive Portal: The Captive Portal feature allows the network administrator to block clients from accessing the network until their identities are verified. The Captive Portal authentication servers cover local, RADIUS, LDAP, POP3, and Windows Active Directory. This double-layer authentication and authorization establish a robust security fence to help avoid attacks from internal networks.
  • Compatible D-Link Unified Wireless Access Points:

DWL-8610AP Unified Concurrent Dual-band Access Point 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
DWL-8600AP Unified Concurrent Dual-band Access Point 802.11a/b/g/n
DWL-6600AP Unified Concurrent Dual-band Access Point 802.11a/b/g/n
DWL-3600AP Unified Single-band Access Point 802.11b/g/n
DWL-2600AP Unified Single-band Access Point 802.11b/g/n

  • Limited Lifetime Warranty: The DWC-2000 carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty, furthering D-Link’s commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.


The D-Link DWC-2000 Unified Wireless Controller is currently available for $2,699.99 through D-Link’s vast network of channel partners, including value-added resellers, distributors and online retailers.

It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless access point before your wireless network adapters/bridges. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption.

Note: Your network will slow down and wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead.

Step 1 Open your web browser and type the IP address of the DWL-G820 in the address bar. The default IP address is At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (default password is blank).

Step 2 Click on Advanced and then click Encryption on the left side.

Step 3 Click on the Shared Key radio button. Next to Key Type, select Hex or ASCII. When using different brand wireless products, it is strongly suggested to use Hex.

Step 4 Next to Key Size, select the level of encryption.

Step 5 Next to Valid Key, select First. In the box, enter a HEX key (a random encryption key that you make up). The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption. The Hex key must be exactly the same on all your wireless products.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 152-bit encryption 32 charactersThe encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters.A10386_image1

    Step 6 Click Apply to save your settings.

    Note: You will now need to use the same encryption key on all other wireless devices you wish to communicate on this wireless network.

The DWL-2100AP allows you to select whether or not either wireless band can pass information, via the Internal Station Connection option. If this feature is not enabled, that particular wireless band will not be able to pass any information through the Access Point. This feature effectively segregates the wireless band of your choice from the rest of the Network. With Ethernet-to-WLAN Access disabled, information sent from the Ethernet side will not be passed to the Wireless Clients. However, wireless clients will still be able to transmit across Ethernet for browsing, etc.

Step 1 Open your web browser such as Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the DWL-2100AP in the Address bar and press Enter. The default IP address is

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (leave blank by default). Click OK.

Step 3 Select the Advanced tab and then click Filters on the left side.

Step 4 Click on WLAN Partition.


Step 5 There are 2 different filters you can use to control traffic on your network. Select Enabled from the corresponding drop down box to enable the feature.

Internal Station Connection

  • Enabled – this will allow wireless clients to communicate with each other (within the same wireless band).
  • Disabled – wireless clients are not allowed to exchange data with each other (within the same wireless band).

Ethernet to WLAN Access

  • Enabled – Ethernet devices can exchange data with wireless devices using the Access Point.
  • Disabled – Ethernet devices are not allowed to send data to wireless devices associated with the Access Point. However, wireless devices can still send data to the Ethernet devices.

Step 6 Click Apply to save your settings
