How to configure the DHP‑W311AV?

Step 1 – Connect both products to the same power socket/power strip.

Step 2 – On the non-wireless device (the smaller device with the 3 lights) press the button (marked as 2 in the image below) for 10 seconds. The button is next to the network socket (marked as 1 in the image below).

Step 3 – On the wireless device (the larger device with 4 lights) press the reset switch (marked as 1 in the image below) with a paperclip for 10 seconds.

 

Step 4 – Check that the light with the icon like a house is lit in green on both devic-es. This indicates that both units are communicating.

Step 5 – You can now scan for Wireless networks on your computer.

Step 6 – Locate the network name that starts with "dlink".

Step 7 – Connect to this network and enter the password as it appears on the card included with the device.

Step 8 – Check that you are able to connect to the internet.

Step 9 – You can now locate the wireless device wherever you want to use it. When the light turns green the device has finished booting up.

Step 10 – Check that the light with the house icon is green. If not, then either try a different power outlet, or try moving the device closer to the router.
