IE11, Firefox and Sarfari
As this document will be published on our site, it is also recommended at the time to check if newer releases of software and firmware have be published on our site.

Download the above to a folder (for example CWM-100). Once the above has been downloaded to your PC or USB storage, then proceed with the following:

Step 1 – Setting up the VLANs. In our scenario, we have used the DSR-500N Wireless N Unified Services Router. 
D-Link
 
*InterVLAN Routing disabled on both VLANs

Step 2 – Setting up ports for our VLANs
D-Link
 
Port 3 – This is connected directly to our Dell PC
Port 4 – This is connected directly to LAN1 (PoE) Port on our DAP-2695A1

Step 3 – Multi-SSID configuration on CWM-100. In our scenario we have created 2 SSIDs; 1 will be used for Primary SSID and will have access to corporative network. The other SSID1 will be used for “Guests” to connect and only having access to the INTERNET. 
D-Link
 
To add a SSID to your network, click on the “+” at top right-hand corner and enter the information using the following example:

Primary SSID: Corporative
D-Link
 
Click “Save”

SSID1: Guest
D-Link
 
You could have the “Guest” SSID connect and authenticate with Captive Portal and Passcode. In this scenario, we have used a “Passphrase”

Click “Save”

D-Link 

Step 4 – VLAN Configuration on CWM-100, in our scenario we need to ensure the same information is used for VLANs as per the DSR-500 Router. As default the VLAN status is “Disabled”. To enable, click the radio button “Enable” the click “Save”
D-Link
 
Step 5 – Modify the default VLAN to comply with our particular setup. To do this, click “Edit” and configure using the following example:
D-Link
 
Click “Save”

Step 6 – Create the VLAN “CMW100”
D-Link
 
Click on “Add/Edit VLAN” and configure using the following example:
D-Link
 
Click “Save”

Step 7 – Configure PVID Settings. To do this click “PVID Setting” tab
D-Link
 
Then configure using the following example:
D-Link
 
Click “Save”

You should see the following screen
D-Link
 
Step 8 – Export the configuration. To do this you will need to go your “Site”. In our example we have named it “D-Link”
D-Link
 
Click “Export”
D-Link
 
Click “Save”
D-Link

 
Click “Save” – this will save as “D-Link-Lab.dat” file
D-Link
 
Click “Close”

Step 9 – Set the IP of the Access-Point. To do this, you will need to run the “AP Installation tool.exe”.
D-Link
D-Link
 
 
Click the box to select the AP then click on “Set IP”. Set it to “Dynamic IP address”, once obtained then set it to “Static IP Address”
CVW_How_to_setup_multiple_SSID_and_VLANS

 
Click “OK”

Wait until “Status” shows “OK”

Step 9 – Upload the .dat configuration file to the access-point. To do this, again click the box to select the access-point then click “Set GroupInfo”
D-Link


D-Link
 
 
1) Search for the .dat configuration file in Step 8
2) Click “Test” – This should show “OK”

If this doesn’t show ok, you must check the LAN connection and the AP is on the same subnet
3) Click “OK” to finalise the upload

Wait until “Status” shows “OK”

Step 10 – Upload configuration in CWM-100. To do this, go to the following menú

Configuration > Site > Network > SSID > Uploading configuration
D-Link

 
Click “Complete”

D-Link 

The process will go through a stage of “Rebooting”. Once complete, you should get the following output:

D-Link
 
If you don’t receive the above and you get a “Fail”, you will need to check the following:
1) Network connections
2) VLANs are correctly setup
3) Correct Module has been installed

You should be able to connect to either of the SSID created and they should provide the corresponding IPs. In our example, if you connect to “Corporative” SSID, you will receive the IP within the range of 192.168.1.x and will have access to ALL LAN resources + INTERNET. If you connect to “Guest” SSID, you will receive the IP within the range of 192.168.9.x and have ONLY access to the INTERNET.
