The D-Link DWL-G730AP has a built-in DHCP server. The DHCP server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/IP settings to Obtain An IP Address Automatically. Your computer will then pull an IP address automatically from the D-Link DWL-G730AP.

1.Access Point Mode

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the D-Link DWL-G730AP in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.30). Press Enter.

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click OK.

Step 3: Click the Home tab and then click DHCP.

Starting IP Address – The first IP address in the range that can be assigned to a device on the network.

Ending IP Address – The last IP address in the range that can be assigned to a device on the network.

Lease Time – The length of time that the DHCP function of the D-Link DWL-G730AP will automatically regenerate the IP addresses to the devices on the network.

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

Note: Clients on the network that are receiving dynamic IP addresses will be listed in the DHCP Client Table.

2.Router Mode

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the DWL-G730AP in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.30). Press Enter.

Step 2: The default username is admin and the default password is blank (nothing). Click OK.

Step 3: Click on the Home tab and then click DHCP.

Step 4: Configure the following settings:

DHCP Server – Using the radio buttons select Enabled to use the built-in DHCP server or Disabled to use another DHCP server on the network.
Starting IP Address – The starting IP address for the DHCP server´s assignment.
Ending IP Address – The ending IP address for the DHCP server´s IP assignment.
Lease Time – The length of time for the IP lease.

3.Static DHCP

Static DHCP is used to allow the DHCP server to assign static IP addresses via specific MAC addresses.

Static DHCP – Using the radio buttons select Enabled to enable Static DHCP or Disabled to disable it.
Name – Enter a name to identify the device.
IP – Enter the last digits of the IP address that you want to statically assign.
MAC Address – Enter the MAC address of the computer that will be assigned the static IP address.
DHCP Client – Use the drop down list to view clients currently connected to the DWL-G730AP. To copy the MAC address into the MAC address section above, select the device from the drop-down list and then click Clone.

Step 5: Click Apply to save the new settings.

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the D-Link DWL-G730AP in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.30). Press Enter.

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click OK.

Step 3: Click the Advanced tab and then click Performance to the left.

Step 4: Configure the following settings:

dlink-dwlg730ap-perform-1

Beacon Interval – Beacons are packets sent by an D-Link access point to synchronize a wireless network. 100 is the recommended value.

RTS Threshold – This value should be left at the default value of 2432. If you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications to the value range between 256-2432 are recommended.

Fragmentation – This value should be left at the default value of 2346. If you are experiencing high packet error rate, slightly increase your fragmentation threshold within the value range of 256-2346. Setting the fragmentation threshold too low may result in poor performance.

DTM Interval (Delivery Traffic Indication Message) – Enter a value between 1-255 (default is 3). A DTIM is a countdown informing clients of the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages.

TX Rates – Select the transmission rate for the network using the drop-down list. By default it is set to Auto. If clients are experiencing connection problems, lock down the TX rate.

dlink-dwlg730ap-perform-2

Mode Setting – Wireless networks will only transmit data at the speed of the slowest device on the network. To ensure max speed, select G Mode. Only 802.11G devices will be allowed to connect to the network. To allow both 802.11b and 802.11g devices to connect to the network, select Mix Mode using the radio buttons.

Preamble Type – By default the preamble is set to Short Preamble. The preamble defines the length of the CRC block (Cyclic Redundancy Check) used in communication between the access point and the wireless network adapters. CRC is a common technique for detecting data transmission errors. High traffic networks should use the shorter preamble type. Otherwise, it is recommended to change the preamble to Long Preamble.

Authentication (only available in Router Mode):

Open System – Allow all computers to communicate across the network.
Shared Key – Limit communication only to those devices that share the same WEP settings.
WPA-PSK – Wi-Fi protected access without a RADIUS server.
SSID Broadcast (Service Set Identifier) – SSID is the name that identifies a wireless network. All devices on a network must use the same SSID to establish communication. If SSID broadcast is disabled the SSID will not be visible. The only way to connect is to manually enter the SSID on the device. When enabled devices can scan for the SSID and connect.

Antenna Transmit Power – Limiting antenna power can be useful for security purposes.
