DIR-826L-IPv6-Internet2

The D-Link DIR-826L router will try to detect whether its possible to obtain the IPv6 Internet connection type automatically. If this succeeds then the user will be guided through the input of the appropriate parameters for the connection type found.

DIR-826L-IPv6-Internet3

However, if the automatic detection fails, the user will be prompt to either Try again or to click on the Guide me through the IPv6 settings button to initiate the manual continual of the wizard.

DIR-826L-IPv6-Internet4

There are several connection types to choose from. If you are unsure of your connection method, please contact your IPv6 Internet Service Provider.

Note: If using the PPPoE option, you will need to ensure that any PPPoE client software on your computers has been removed or disabled. The 3 options available on this page are IPv6 over PPPoE, Static IPv6 address and Route, and Tunneling Connection.

Choose the required IPv6 Internet Connection type and click on the Next button to continue. Click on the Prev button to return to the previous page. Click on the Cancel button to discard all the changes made and return to the main page.

IPv6 over PPPoE

After selecting the IPv6 over PPPoE option, the user will be able to configure the IPv6 Internet connection that requires a username and password to get online.Most DSL modems use this type of connection.

The following parameters will be available for configuration:

DIR-826L-IPv6-Internet6

PPPoE Session: Select the PPPoE Session value used here. This option will state that this connection shares it’s
information with the already configured IPv6 PPPoE connection, or the user can create a new PPPoE connection here.

User Name: Enter the PPPoE username used here. If you do not know your user name, please contact your ISP.

Password: Enter the PPPoE password used here. If you do not know your password, please contact your ISP.

Verify Password: Re-enter the PPPoE password used here.

Service Name: Enter the service name for this connection here. This option is optional.

Static IPv6 Address Connection

This mode is used when your ISP provides you with a set IPv6 addresses that does not change. The IPv6 information is manually entered in your IPv6 configuration settings. You must enter the IPv6 address, Subnet Prefix Length, Default Gateway, Primary DNS Server, and Secondary DNS Server. Your ISP provides you with all this information.

DIR-826L-IPv6-Internet7

Use Link-Local Address:

The Link-local address is used by nodes and routers when communicating with neighboring nodes on the same link.
This mode enables IPv6-capable devices to communicate with each other on the LAN side.

IPv6 Address:

Enter the WAN IPv6 address for the router here.

Subnet Prefix Length:

Enter the WAN subnet prefix length value used here.

Default Gateway:

Enter the WAN default gateway IPv6 address used here.

Primary IPv6 DNS Address:

Enter the WAN primary DNS Server address used here.

Secondary IPv6 DNS Address:

Enter the WAN secondary DNS Server address used here.

LAN IPv6 Address:

These are the settings of the LAN (Local Area Network)IPv6 interface for the router. The router’s LAN IPv6 Address
configuration is based on the IPv6 Address and Subnet assigned by your ISP. (A subnet with prefix /64 is supported in LAN.)

Networking expert D-Link has announced its first wireless router to feature the company’s patented SmartBeam technology, something it claims can eliminate wireless blackspots in the home.

SmartBeam, the company claims, constantly surveys the signals strength of multiple connected devices in order to provide a stable, seamless and interference-free wireless connection anywhere in the home.

D-Link-dir-645

Built into an interesting cylindrical design, the D-Link DIR-645 uses an array of six antennae to locate wireless client devices more accurately, focusing a direct beam on devices which report a poor signal strength.

In addition to theoretically eliminating signal blackspots, the SmartBeam technology should also increase speeds for devices on the periphery of the wireless network by increasing the quality of the signal and helping ward off interference from other wireles networks in the area.

“We love pushing the boundaries of design to ensure the consumer has the best possible experience, and could be more innovative than an intelligent router that identifies where wireless devices are and provides a better signal? Inspired by beamforming technology, the result is that consumers can now benefit from technology which was previously reserved for enterprise-grade applications,” claimed D-Link’s Andrew Mulholland at the launch.

“Furthermore, the D-Link router’s cutting edge design means that users will be happy to have it sitting at the heart of their homes. D-Link is proud to be the first company to bring this technology to market, blending our existing leadership in Wireless N with our networking expertise and understanding of the consumer’s needs in their Digital Home.”

The DIR-645 is available now priced at £80, with more SmartBeam-enabled products expected to follow in the near future.
