Configuring D-Link® Router Settings
A wireless router is a device that acts both as a gateway joining your system and your modem and as a wireless access point that allows your wireless device like a laptop to connect to the network. D-Link provides several types of wireless routers, each offering different ranges and options for business and home users. Before you use the D-Link wireless router, you must connect the devices using Ethernet cables and configure the router's settings. Configuring your D-Link wireless router will allow you to set-up your wireless network connection and get your system online as quickly as possible. This can be done by accessing the D-Link router's settings through a single wired system and configuring the router for the rest of your network computers in the process.
A wireless router is an external system device that accepts an incoming Internet connection, such as that from a cable modem and converts it into a local wireless signal allowing systems in the area with wireless adapters to connect to the Internet. D-Link routers have a number of security settings that can be changed to make your wireless network protected. The settings on D-Link routers can be changed by logging into the router's settings page with an Internet browser.
Among the common problems related to the D-Link routers include difficulty in installation, slower router performance and occasional connection failure due to overheating. Other issue is that sometimes it does not automatically register its authentication settings with Windows operating system. Sometimes, problems may occur due to the outdated drivers.
When troubleshooting issues with the D-Link wireless router, the first thing to check is the network settings. When trying to connect to the network for the first time, the D-Link router will show popup windows to instruct the user towards the installation process and from there the user will be able to change the system settings. D-Link wireless router comes with newer versions of firmware which have to be downloaded and installed to ensure optimum router performance.
