How do I setup and install my DAP-1320?

The DAP-1320 can be setup by two different methods: 

1. Push button WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) 
2. Manual

Note: In order to setup the DAP-1320 using WPS, you must have a WPS compatible router/access point

Push Button WPS

Step 1: Plug in the DAP-1320

Note: The light should turn red and then start blinking orange

Step 2: Press the WPS button on your router/AP


Step 3: Press and hold the WPS button on the DAP-1320 until it starts blinking green and then release. Once connected, the LED will be solid GREEN.

Step 4: Unplug and place the DAP-1320 approx half way between the router and the desired connection area.

Manual Setup

Step 1: Plug in the DAP-1320

Note: The light should turn red and then start blinking orange

Step 2: From a wireless computer/device, scan for available networks and connect to the pre-defined SSID

(Located on the Companion Card supplied with the DAP-1320 and on the bottom of the DAP-1320) example: Dlink-6DFC .


Step 3: Open a Web browser and type dlinkap.local. 

You will be directed to the d-link setup page. Click next to start the setup.


Step 4:
Select the Manual configuration method and click “Next”.

The DAP-1320 will scan for available wireless networks. Select the Wi-Fi network you would like the DAP-1320 to extend and click “Connect”


If the wireless network you are trying to extend is security enabled, you will be prompted for the Wi-Fi password.

Step 5:
Next you need to create a wireless network name and password for your extended network. It is suggested to configure a name that is different from your "Primary" wireless net-work.

Click Next

Step 6:
Confirm your wireless settings and click save

Setup is now complete. Once the DAP-1320 has applied its settings, its light should be Green and you should be able to connect to the Extended Wi-Fi Network.
