Disclaimer: This is an advanced tutorial meant for users comfortable setting up routers. If settings get corrupt, you always have the option of resetting the router but make sure you make note of your current settings or back them up first. The instructions and commands are provided AS IS for you to try and may or may not work depending on your actual router and the features available for you.

 

How to Setup the Blocks

 

Step 1 – Login to your Router

a. Type http://192.168.0.1 into web browser address bar (also try http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.2.1)

b. Enter router username and password. The default username is usually admin, and default password is blank

Step 2 – Add Static Routes

a. Click on ‘Manual Setup’

d-link1-w

b. Click on ‘Status’ and write down your internet IP address

d-link2-w

c. Click on ‘Advanced’ -> ‘Routing’

d-link3-w

d. Add the following to the Route List:

d-link4-w

  • Network/Host IP: 8.8.8.8
  • Netmask: 255.255.255.255 or 255.255.252 or 255.255.248
  • Gateway: your internet IP
  • Interface: WAN
 
  • Network/Host IP: 8.8.4.4
  • Netmask: 255.255.255.255 or 255.255.252 or 255.255.248
  • Gateway: your internet IP
  • Interface: WAN
  • Network/Host IP: 208.67.222.222
  • Netmask: 255.255.255.255 or 255.255.252 or 255.255.248
  • Gateway: your internet IP
  • Interface: WAN


  • Network/Host IP: 209.244.0.3
  • Netmask: 255.255.255.255 or 255.255.252 or 255.255.248

  • Gateway: your internet IP
  • Interface: WAN

e. Click on ‘Save Setting’

Step 3 – Ping check

 

Please complete one of the following steps from a computer connected to the router:

 

a. Open the Command Prompt or Terminal.

 

  • Windows: Press   AND  at the same time on your keyboard. Type in cmd and press Enter.  
  • Mac OSX: In the upper right corner of your screen, where the search function is, type in Terminal and open the program.  

 

b. Run the following commands:

  • Type in:ping 8.8.8.8
  • Type in:ping 208.67.222.222
  • Type in:ping 209.244.0.3

 

The ping tests above should fail. If any of them give you a response, check your Static routes or reboot the router and try this step again until the pings fail. You might also need to use a different gateway IP such as 127.0.0.1192.168.0.253, or your router IP. Essentially any unreachable IP that the router accepts should work.

 

Step 4 – Power-Cycle Devices

 

a. Turn off your device.

 

b. Unplug the power cable from the router.

 

c. Wait 30 seconds.

 

d. Plug in router.

 

e. Turn on your device.

 


Alternate Step 2 – Static Routes for Routers with a different Interface

If your Router has one of the following interfaces, just enter in the details below and continue with Step 3 above.

Dlink1

OR

Dlink2

Just add in the following:
IP Version: IPv4
Destination IP/prefix length: 8.8.8.8/32
Interface: LAN/br0
Gateway:192.168.1.252 (If your router IP is 192.168.1.1, otherwise just use .252 for the last octet of your router IP. )
Metric: 1
IP Version: IPv4
Destination IP/prefix length: 8.8.4.4/32
Interface: LAN/br0
Gateway:192.168.1.252
Metric: 1
IP Version: IPv4
Destination IP/prefix length: 208.67.222.222/32
Interface: LAN/br0
Gateway:192.168.1.252
Metric: 1
IP Version: IPv4
Destination IP/prefix length: 209.244.0.3/32
Interface: LAN/br0
Gateway:192.168.1.252
Metric: 1

D-Link DNS-320 LAN Setup

The LAN Settings allows you to enable LLTD and to configure the Link Speed and the IP address as a DHCP client or Static IP.

IP Settings

DHCP Client:Selecting DHCP Client will cause the DNS-320 to obtain an IP address from the local DHCP server.

Static IP: Selecting Static IP requires you to assign the IP information for the DNS-320 manually.

IP Address: Enter an IP address for your device. The IP address of each device on the local area network must be within the same IP address range and subnet mask.

Subnet Mask: Enter the Subnet Mask. The default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.

Gateway IP Address:Enter the Gateway IP Address for the device. The Gateway IP Address is almost always the LAN address of your router. Most D-Link routers have a default LAN IP address of 192.168.0.1.

DNS1/ DNS2: Specify the first and second DNS Addresses for the device. The first DNS address is usually the LAN address of your router. A DNS Address will allow the device to resolve names into IP addresses. Click Save Settings when finished.

Link Speed and LLTD Settings

Speed: Displays the current Ethernet bit rate in Megabits per second.

Link Speed: Select either Auto (Auto-Negotiate), 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps by clicking the appropriate radio button.
Then click the Save Settings button to save the new settings.

LLTD: The device supports LLTD (Link Layer Topology Discovery) and is used by the Network Map application that is included in Windows Vista® and Windows® 7. Select to enable or disable LLTD.

D-Link DNS-320 Dynamic DNS

The DDNS feature allows the user to host a server (Web, FTP, Game Server, etc…) using a domain name that you have purchased.(www.whateveryournameis.com) with your dynamically assigned IP address. Most broadband Internet Service Providers assign dynamic (changing)IP addresses. Using a DDNS service provider, your friends can enter your domain name to connect to your server regardless of your IP address.

DDNS Settings

DDNS: Select Enable or Disable.
Server Address: Select a DDNS Server from the combo box on the right hand-side, or type in the server address manually.
Host Name: Enter your DDNS host name.
Username or Key: Enter your DDNS username or key.
Password or Key: Enter your DDNS password or key.
Verify Password or Key: Re-enter your password or key.
Status: Displays your DDNS status.

When the user clicks on the “Sign up for D-Link’s Free DDNS service at www.DLinkDDNS.com” link, the user will be re-directed to the D-Link DDNS page.

Here the user can create or modify a D-Link DDNS account to use in this configuration.
