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 192.168.0.50.
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.
