The Wizard is an easy to use utility for basic setup of the
DNS-323. Here you will configure the administrator's password, time, LAN
connection type, and additional settings of your DNS-323.
Step 1: Click 'Run Wizard' to
Step 2: Click 'Next' to this introductory
Step 3: 'Set Password' Enter the new administrator's
password here. Enter it a second time for verification. Click
Step 4: 'Choose Time Zone' Choose your time zone from the
drop down list. Click 'Next'.
Step 5: 'Select LAN Connection Type'
Choose DHCP Client or Static IP. DHCP Client should be selected if there
is a DHCP server on the network. Static IP should be selected when a DHCP
server is not on the network. If you select Static IP, enter the required
Step 6: 'Set Additional Information' Enter a workgroup
name, device name, and device description here. If you do not need to
change these, you can leave the default entries in place. Click
Step 7: Click 'Completed' to save your settings and reboot
Select either 'Auto','100', or '1000'. Auto should work
in all scenarios. However, if you are experiencing connectivity issues,
try changing to '100' or '1000' depending on what type of network you
Dynamic (Obtain IP Address
from a DHCP server)
By selecting 'DHCP Client', the DNS-323 will act as
a DHCP client and obtain its LAN IP settings from the DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol) server on the local network. By default, the
DNS-323 is set to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server on your network.
If a DHCP server is not available, the DNS-323 will set an IP address of
192.168.0.32 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and will periodically
search for a DHCP server on the network.
Static IP (Assign a Fixed IP
Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway IP Address, DNS1 and DNS2)
you can assign a static IP address to the DNS-323. The IP address of each
device on the local area network must be within the same IP address range
and subnet mask. For a small subnet with less than 253 IP addresses
assigned (e.g. Class C private IP), each device on the LAN (Local Area
Network) needs have a unique IP Address in the format of (example)
192.168.0.x to connect to other devices within the same
Specify the subnet mask for the DNS-323. The Subnet mask must be the
same for all devices on the same subnet of the network. The default subnet
setting is 255.255.255.0. For a small subnet with less than 253 IP
addresses assigned (e.g. Class C private IP), keep this default
Specify the Gateway IP Address for the DNS-323. The
Gateway IP Address is almost always the LAN address of your router. Most
D-Link routers have a default LAN IP address of
DNS1 and DNS2
Specify the first and
second DNS Addresses for the DNS-323. A DNS Address will allow the DNS-323
to resolve names into IP addresses. Example: Without a DNS address, the
DNS-323 would not be able to contact an FTP site such as ftp.dlink.com
(name). Instead, you would need to use 126.96.36.199 (IP address). It is
recommended that you enter DNS addresses when setting a Static IP Address.
Often you can use the LAN IP address of your router as a DNS address.
Click 'Save Settings' when finished.
JUMBO FRAME SETTINGS
Ethernet Frames are 1,500 bytes in size. Enabling Jumbo frames allows you
to increase the Frame size from 3,000 to 9,000 bytes which increases
network throughput and performance.
In order to use Jumbo frames
your network must support Jumbo frame packets. In the event that you
enable jumbo frames and can no longer access your unit you will need to
reset your unit to defaults to disable
