D-Link’s Gaming Router DGL-5500 features powerful traffic shaping technology that gives you real-time control over your bandwidth so that – whatever you’re into – you can do more and lag less.

The lifeblood of your gaming experience! Protect it while ensuring that everyone else in your home gets the best possible online experiences with D-Link’s Gaming Router with StreamBoost.

D-Link DGL-5500 Gaming Router AC1300 with StreamBoost™ Technology

QoS has been promising to solve the problem of multiple, simultaneous web users for years, without ever fully delivering. So when we got our hands on StreamBoost we were as skeptical as you likely are. Until we experienced the performance. StreamBoost isn’t QoS — it’s something much more powerful. A sophisticated Traffic Shaping engine intelligently manages bandwidth in ways traditional QoS engines can’t touch. And because it is both app-aware and device-aware, you can be confident that the indignity and inconvenience of lag has become a thing of the past.

Product Reviews

1.This Router Is A Game Changer! From:mrtuneup2

I don’t usually leave reviews on products. I couldn’t help myself this router is amazing!!! I love the form factor, the user interface, & most of all the Stream Boost Technology. My wife and I play video games on the weekends. I would experience lag every once in a while. I installed the DGL-5500 into my network. I have almost 50 devices on my network and my wife and I are the only ones using the network. I did expect it to improve my game playing experience as far as no more LAG. This router made my game playing feel really smooth, fluid and fast. When I thought it was good before when it wasn’t lagging. I was listening to other people complaining about lag and my wife and I never experience any. If you are a gamer this router is a must have. Stream Boost is like QOS on steroids.

2.A great router that fix my range problem From:Isabella

Just tried out this router to replace my Netgear router and it fixed my signal problem. My Netgear router has a poor signal strength in my bedrooms at the back of the house, but D-Link has a very good signal strength that fixed my problem. Love it!

3.ProEasy to Use, Easy to install, Fast

I recently got this router to replace my old one which I had for over 5 years. I wanted something good coverage since my old router wasn’t reaching the ends of my house. Set up was quick and simple and I was up in a matter of minutes. I tested out the coverage and it is amazing. Covers my entire house with no problem. My download speeds improved from immensely. Overall the router is great for my needs and I couldn’t be happier.

D-Link’s DCS-932L is a versatile and cost effective Network Camera offering both video and audio monitoring. It can also serve as a powerful surveillance system in security applications. The DCS-932L can be used with any wired or 802.11n/g wireless router. This section explains how to view the camera from either the Internet or from inside your internal network.

Components Needed:

• 1 DCS-932L Network Camera
• 1 Ethernet Cable
• A Wired or Wireless router such as the D-Link DIR-655 Wireless Router
• Ethernet based PC for system configuration

Setting up the D-LINK DCS-932L for Use Behind a D-LINK Router

Installing a D-LINK DCS-932L Network Camera on your network is an easy 4–step procedure:

1. Assign a local IP address to your network camera.
2. View the network camera using your Internet Explorer web browser.
3. Access the router with your web browser.
4. Open virtual server ports to enable remote image viewing.

Note: These are manual steps; however, if you decide to use the wizard, it will perform every step automatically.

This section is designed to walk you through the setup process for installing your camera behind a router and enable remote video viewing. For the basic setup of the DCS-932L, follow the steps outlined in the Quick Installation Guide.

After you have completed the setup of the DCS-932L outlined in the Quick Installation Guide you will have an operating camera that has an assigned IP Address. Because you are using a router to share the Internet with one or more PCs, the IP Address assigned to the Network Camera will be a local IP Address. This allows viewing within your Local Area Network (LAN) until the router is configured to allow remote viewing of the camera over the Internet.

1. Assign a Local IP Address to Your Camera

Run the setup wizard from the CD included with the D-Link DCS-932L. Follow the steps in the Quick Installation Guide to configure the DCS-932L. The camera will be assigned a local IP Address that allows it to be recognized by the router. Write down this IP Address for future reference.

2. View the Network Camera Using Your Internet Explorer Web Browser

Run your Internet Explorer Web browser. In the address bar, type in the IP Address that was assigned to the Network Camera by the DCC program.The DCS-932L Live Video Page appears with a window displaying live video from the camera. You are able to view this screen from any PC running Internet Explorer on your LAN.

Click on the Setup button on the left side of the display. Scroll to the bottom of the Network Setup page to display the ports used by HTTP and Streaming audio and video.

The Setup > Network Setup page displays the port settings for your camera. If necessary, these ports can be changed if they are already in use by other devices (e.g. in a multiple camera environment).

Note: The HTTP port is required to be opened for the D-Link DCS-932L.

Router Set-Up and Installation

The following steps generally apply to any router that you have on your network. The D-Link DIR-655 is used as an example to clarify the configuration process. Configure the initial settings of the DIR-655 by following the steps outlined in the DIR-655 Quick Installation Guide.

3. Access the Router with Your Web Browser

If you have cable or DSL Internet service, you will most likely have a dynamically assigned WAN IP Address. ‘Dynamic’ means that your router’s WAN IP address can change from time to time depending on your ISP. A dynamic WAN IP Address identifies your router on the public network and allows it to access the Internet. To find out what your router’s WAN IP Address is, go to the Status menu on your router and locate the WAN information for your router (as shown on the next page). The WAN IP Address will be listed. This will be the address that you will need to type in your Web browser to view your camera over the Internet.

Your WAN IP Address will be listed on the router’s Status > Device Info page.

Note: Because a dynamic WAN IP can change from time to time depending on your ISP, you may want to obtain a Static IP address from your ISP. A Static IP address is a fixed IP address that will not change over time and will be more convenient for you to use to access your camera from a remote location. The Static IP Address will also allow you to access your camera attached to your router over the Internet.

4. Open Virtual Server Ports to Enable Remote Image Viewing

The firewall security features built into the DIR-655 router prevent users from accessing the video from the D-Link DCS-932L over the Internet. The router connects to the Internet over a series of numbered ports. The ports normally used by the DCS-932L are blocked from access over the Internet.

Therefore, these ports need to be made accessible over the Internet. This is accomplished using the Virtual Server function on the DIR-655 router.The Virtual Server ports used by the camera must be opened through the router for remote access to your camera. Virtual Server is accessed by clicking on the Advanced tab of the router screen.

Follow these steps to configure your router’s Virtual Server settings:

1. Click Enabled.
2. Enter a different name for each entry.
3. Enter your camera’s local IP Address (e.g., in the Private IP field.
4. Select TCP for HTTP port, and TCP for 5556 – 5559 ports.
5. If you are using the default camera port settings, enter 80 into the Public and Private Port section, click Apply.
6. Scheduling should be set to Always so that the camera images can be accessed at any time.
