Step 1: Install the LucidLink server software on your computer.

Step 2: Click on Configure Access Point and select the Manufacturer and Model (D-Link, DWL-2100AP, DWL-2000AP) from the drop-down menu. Click Next.


Step 3: Once the Access Point is detected, you can change the IP address and password of the Access Point. To change the IP address, type it in the field next to IP Address. To change the password type it next to Password and then re-type it next to Confirm Password. Click Next.


Step 4: Next to Network Name enter your SSID (Service Set Identifier), and select the security method (Maximum Security or Maximum Compatibility) using the radio buttons below Choose The Security Method. Click Configure Access Point.

Note: If you select Maximum Security (WPA) the Shared Secret must be a minimum of 8 characters.


Step 5: Please wait while LucidLink completes the configuration process with the Access Point. This will take about 3-5 minutes. Do not disconnect the Ethernet cable or power cycle the unit during this process. If directly connected onto the Access Point, the Local area network status will switch between disconnected and connected. This is normal.

Step 6: Click Settings and enter a shared secret password next to Shared Secret. Also, enter your identification and contact information. To launch the LucidLink Management Console when Windows starts click the check box next to Automatically open the LucidLink Management Console whenever Windows starts. Click Save Settings to finish setup.


Note: The shared secret configured on the server must match the Shared Secret configured on every Access Point that communicates with the server. Configure the Shared Secret in the web-based configurations of the Access Points.
