DWL-3200 AP easy configuration guide

I bought a new DWL-3200AP for making my wireless network strong and stable but I never did configuration of this device earlier. I was familiar with many other wireless routers but never got chance to configure an access point.

I searched on internet for some easy solution for this but I was unlucky for finding an easy configuration guide. After not finding it on internet I made call to few of my friend s and finally made it done.

If you want to go for the typical and complicated installation guide you can go ahead with that.
For simplest configuration keep reading.

If you have DHCP server/router in your network or if you want to give IP address manually on all of wireless device you are done with settings and you don’t need to make any changes. You can connect with your newly created wireless network now.

If you don’t have DHCP server in your network and you wish to give IP address automatically on all of the wireless network device Please keep reading on how to enable dhcp on DWL-3200AP.
