The router must be rebooted for the changes to take effect. You can reboot now, or you can continue to make other changes and reboot later. Configuration Warnings Wireless Use this section to configure the wireless settings for your D-Link Router. Please note that changes made on this section may also need to be duplicated on your Wireless Client. Note: Only Administrator has access to these functionalities.

This device supports three wireless security modes, including WEP, WPA-Personal, and WPA-Enterprise. WEP is the original wireless encryption standard. WPA provides a higher level of security. WPA-Personal does not require an authentication server. The WPA-Enterprise option requires an external RADIUS server. Security Mode : None WEP WPA-Personal WPA-Enterprise WEP WEP is the wireless encryption standard. To use it you must enter the same key(s) into the router and the wireless stations. For 64 bit keys you must enter 10 hex digits into each key box. For 128 bit keys you must enter 26 hex digits into each key box. A hex digit is either a number from 0 to 9 or a letter from A to F. For the most secure use of WEP set the authentication type to "Shared Key" when WEP is enabled. You may also enter any text string into a WEP key box, in which case it will be converted into a hexadecimal key using the ASCII values of the characters. A maximum of 5 text characters can be entered for 64 bit keys, and a maximum of 13 characters for 128 bit keys. If you choose the WEP security option this device will ONLY operate in Legacy Wireless mode (802.11B/G) . This means you will NOT get 11N performance due to the fact that WEP is not supported by the Draft 11N specification. WEP Key Length : 64 bit (10 hex digits) 128 bit (26 hex digits) (length applies to all keys) WEP Key 1 : WEP Key 2 : WEP Key 3 : WEP Key 4 : Default WEP Key : WEP Key 1 WEP Key 2 WEP Key 3 WEP Key 4 Authentication : Both Shared Key WPA Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while maintaining higher security with stations that are WPA2 capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used. For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security. For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only . This mode uses TKIP cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode. To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher). WPA Mode : Auto (WPA or WPA2) WPA2 Only WPA Only Cipher Type : TKIP AES TKIP and AES Group Key Update Interval : (seconds) Pre-Shared Key Enter an 8- to 63-character alphanumeric pass-phrase. For good security it should be of ample length and should not be a commonly known phrase. Pre-Shared Key : EAP (802.1x) When WPA enterprise is enabled, the router uses EAP (802.1x) to authenticate clients via a remote RADIUS server. Authentication Timeout : (minutes) RADIUS server IP Address : RADIUS server Port : RADIUS server Shared Secret : MAC Address Authentication : Optional backup RADIUS server : Second RADIUS server IP Address : Second RADIUS server Port : Second RADIUS server Shared Secret : Second MAC Address Authentication : Helpful Hints... Changing your Wireless Network Name is the first step in securing your wireless network. Change it to a familiar name that does not contain any personal information. Enable Auto Channel Scat the router can select the best possible channel for your wireless network to operate on. Enabling Hidden Mode is another way to secure your network. With this option enabled, no wireless clients will be able to see your wireless network when they scan to see what's available. For your wireless devices to connect to your router, you will need to manually enter the Wireless Network Name on each device. If you have enabled Wireless Security, make sure you write down the Key or Passphrase that you have configured. You will need to enter this information on any wireless device that you connect to your wireless network. More... Copyright © 2004-2008 D-Link Systems, Inc.
