Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point, a WDS/
Bridge, or a Wireless Client.
Fast and Efficient Wireless Performance
The DAP-2230 delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance with maximum wireless signal
rates of up to 300 Mbps1. This, coupled with support for the Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality
of Service (QoS) feature, makes it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications.
When enabled, QoS allows the DAP-2230 to automatically prioritize network traffic according
to the level of interactive streaming, such as HD movies or VoIP. The QoS feature can be adjusted
through the DAP-2230’s web GUI using a drop-down menu option to select customized priority
rules. Additionally, the DAP-2230 supports load balancing to ensure maximum performance by
limiting the number of users per access point.
To help maintain a secure wireless network, the DAP-2230 supports both Personal and
Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i), with support for RADIUS server backend and
a built-in internal RADIUS server allowing users to create their accounts within the device
itself. This access point also includes MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID
broadcast disable, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling to further protect
your wireless network. The DAP-2230 includes support for up to eight VLANs per band for
implementing multiple SSIDs to further help segment users on the network. It also includes
a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication.
Additionally, the DAP-2230 supports Network Access Protection (NAP), a feature of Windows
Server 2008, allowing network administrators to define multiple levels of network access
based on individual client’s need.
Versatile Access Point Functionality
The DAP-2230 allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable
and extremely robust wireless network with optimal wireless coverage. The
DAP-2230 can be ceiling mounted, wall mounted, or placed on a desktop to
meet any wireless demands. For advanced installations, the DAP-2230 has
integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing this device to
be installed in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
Multiple Operation Modes
To maximize total return on investment, the DAP-2230 can be configured to
optimize network performance based on any one of its multiple operation
modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point,
WDS/Bridge (No AP Broadcasting), and Wireless Client. With WDS support,
network administrators can set up multiple DAP-2230s throughout a facility
and configure them to bridge with one another while also providing network
access to individual clients. The DAP-2230 also features advanced features
such as load balancing and redundancy, for fail-safe wireless connectivity.
Network administrators have multiple options for managing the DAP-2230,
including web (HTTP), Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Secure Shell (SSH), and
Telnet. For advanced network management, administrators can use the
D-Link Central WiFi Manager to configure and manage multiple access points
from a single location. In addition, the D-Link Central WiFiManager provides
network administrators with the means of conducting regular maintenance
checks remotely, eliminating the need for sending out personnel to physically
verify proper operation.
The DAP-2230 has a wireless scheduler feature, which turns off wireless
functionality when it isn’t needed, saving power. With its high output power
design, PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes,
and solid security enhancements, the DAP-2230 provides small to medium
business and enterprise environments with a business-class solution for
deploying a wireless network.
