    Wireless network devices are as competitively priced as conventional Ethernet network devices. Standards-Based Technology Based on the IEEE 802.11g standard, the DP-G310 is interoperable with existing ∗ compatible 2.4GHz wireless technology with data transfer speeds of up to 54Mbps ∗ Maximum wireless signal rate based on IEEE Standard 802.11g specifications.

  • Page 14: Wireless Installation Considerations

    1. Keep the antenna of the DP-G310 in an upright position. 2. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the DP-G310 and other network devices to a minimum. Each wall or ceiling can reduce your D-Link wireless products range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters). Position your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized.

  • Page 15: Setting Up The Dp-g310

    Follow this procedure to avoid complications at the configuration stage. 1. Confirm proper operation of the printers to be connected to the DP-G310. 2. When you have confirmed proper operation of the printer, switch its power OFF.

  • Page 16: Power On Self-test

    Power ON Self-Test Every DP-G310 has been factory-tested to operate properly. When the DP-G310 is powered ON, it also automatically performs a Self-Test on each of its major components. The final result of the Self-Test is signaled by the state of the USB LED indicator following the Self-Test. Preliminary to the actual component tests, the four LED indicators are tested to confirm their steady and flashing operation.
