problem connecting between 2 DAP-1320
« on: September 03, 2013, 02:20:46 AM »

I have setup 2 x DAP 1320. One is connecting to the router directly and the 2nd on is connected to the previous thus expanding the wifi range. The problem is that the second one can no longer connect to the first DAP after working for like one day. The signal it gets varies from 10%-18% which should be sufficient as the first one which is connected to the router has the same reception and is working fine. Passwords and security are correct. i have set them up even hard reset them both and reconfigured them and still the second one does not connect to the first. Also switched the 2 expanders to see if it was a problem with the hardware but it could connect directly to the router. any ideas why this is happening? i mean if it was the signal why did it work for a day and then it could not?

    Link>
Welcome!
  • What Hardware version is your DAPs? Look at sticker under DAPs.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DAPs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?


Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Can be anything and not something thats already in use by any neighboring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • What wireless modes are you using on the main host router?
  • 2.4Ghz Routers only: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N?
  • 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz routers: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N on 2.4Ghz and single mode N on 5Ghz?
  • Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
  • Try setting a manual Channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.
  • What wireless devices do you have connected?
  • Any cordless house phones?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many?
  • If you have any of these options, Try turning OFF or ON Short GI, WLAN Partition, HT 20/40 Co-exhistance and Extra Wireless Protection if you have it. Recommended settings are default. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.
  • Enable WMM Enable Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.
  • Try setting Medium or Low power output settings and test again Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.



What are the distances between the main host router and DAPs?

Hi thanks for the reply
HW: v1 FW: 1.00
Eu region

there is a cordless phone right next to it i think that could be the problem ...? will try to disconnect the phone and see what it happens

also cant change the channels of the DAP no option to do that seems it duplicates the routers channel
in addition the other routers on the area use channel 11 whereas the local router is on channel 6 manually
and tried to change channel and mode but still no good am afraid.
as for security tried wpa2 and wpa only with auto on tpik and aes

router is on first floor other 2 expanders are below
the first expader is directly below so id say around 10 m
the other one is at 15m but with another wall between that why i need to take the signal from the first DAP

Yes, in Repeater mode, the DAP will use what ever the Main Host router is using. SO you need to set the main host router appropriately.

router is on first floor other 2 expanders are below
the first expader is directly below so id say around 10 m
the other one is at 15m but with another wall between that why i need to take the signal from the first DAP

Is the 2nd DAP connecting to the main host router or the 1st DAP?

Can you test the 2nd DAP with it connected to the host router? Does it provide a connection with devices with out DAP 1 being online?

Can you test both DAP in a wired AP configuration to see if they all work with the main host router using different channels for each? Router and DAPs?

Just wondering if the AP mode works, maybe there could be a problem with Repeater mode...

I'm going to recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and inquire for some more help on this. Could be a faulty unit or a mis-configuration.

Keep us posted.
