Router Mode
In the Router mode, the DAP-1350 connects to a broadband modem. In this mode, the DAP-1350 also acts as a router
for wireless clients on your network and provides NAT (Network Address Translation) and a DHCP server to generate
IP addresses. NAT and the DHCP server allow many computers to share the same Internet connection.

Wireless Installation Considerations
The D-Link wireless access point lets you access your network using a wireless connection from virtually anywhere
within the operating range of your wireless network. Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness and location
of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range. Typical ranges vary
depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home or business. The key to
maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the D-Link access point and other network devices to
a minimum. Each wall or ceiling can reduce your adapter’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position
your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized.
2. Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at a
45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 42 feet
(14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a wall or ceiling (instead
of at an angle) for better reception.
3. Building Materials make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect
on range. Try to position access points, wireless access points, and computers so that the signal passes
through drywall or open doorways. Materials and objects such as glass, steel, metal, walls with insulation,
water (fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, brick, and concrete will degrade your wireless signal.
4. Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that
generate RF noise.
5. If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones or X-10 (wireless products such as ceiling fans, lights, and
home security systems), your wireless connection may degrade dramatically or drop completely. Make
sure your 2.4GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless devices as possible. The base transmits
a signal even if the phone is not in use.
