In a home network, the SSID broadcast feature serves no useful purpose. You should disable this feature to improve the security of your wireless network. You will need to manually configure your wireless clients with the same SSID as your access point or wireless router.

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the VDI-624 in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.1). Press Enter.

Step 2: The default username and password is listed below for your version of firmware:

Click OK.

Step 3: Click the Advanced tab at the top and then click Performance on the left side.

It is recommended to configure the preamble on your VDI-624 before your wireless adapters. You may need to set the preamble on all wireless clients.

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the VDI-624 in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.1). Press Enter.

Step 2: The default username and password is listed below for your version of firmware:

# Firmware 2.39DDM – The default username is admin and the default password is blank (nothing).
# Firmware 2.43 Build 12 – The default username is admin and the default password is password.

Click OK.

Step 3: Click the Advanced tab at the top and then click Performance on the left.

Step 4: Select Short Preamble or Long Preamble next to Preamble Type. If you experience lock-ups when transferring large files, then select Short Preamble. You must also match your other wireless devices with the same preamble setting.

Note: The preamble defines the length of the CRC block for communication between the wireless access point and the roaming wireless network adapters. CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) is a common technique for detecting data transmission errors.

Step 5: Click Apply and then click Continue to save the new settings.

Fountain Valley’s D-Link Systems Inc., a maker of networking gear for consumers and small businesses, has continued reshuffling its executive ranks.

D-Link, part of Taiwan’s D-Link Corp., is in the midst of a reorganization.

In the latest round, the company promoted Nick Tidd to president of D-Link North America. He was brought on last year as vice president of marketing for North America and vice president of sales for Pan-America operations.

Tidd is a veteran of Marlborough, Mass.-based 3Com Corp.

Big changes began in May after the departure of Steven Joe, former U.S. president and chief executive who spent more than 20 years at the company.

Keith Karlsen, former executive vice president, also left during the reorganization when D-Link consolidated operations in North America and South America.

As part of the restructuring, D-Link named Carlos Casassus Fontecilla as president of Pan-America.

The company has been hiring executives at a rapid clip, mostly in sales, operations and marketing.

In the same announcement, D-Link said Michael Fox has been promoted to vice president of U.S. solutions channels sales, overseeing the pending launch of D-Link’s latest reseller program. Fox is set to focus on selling to the government.

It also named Patrick Piwowarczyk vice president of U.S. enterprise sales, Michael Walsh as vice president of information technology for North America, Phyllis McCullagh as vice president of sales operations and Mark Ciprietti as general manager of business solutions in D-Link’s Canadian operations.
