Getting Started: Xtreme N Dual Band Gigabit Router (DIR-825)

Uploaded by DLinkTV on 23.02.2011

Hello and welcome to Getting Started with the D-Link Xtreme Nâ Dual Band, Gigabit Router
Also known as the DIR-825. The DIR-825 uses dual band technology to support 2.4GHz
& 5GHz wireless signals at the same time.
So let's get started and see what comes in the box
As usual, a cd and product documentation
The DIR-825 wireless router an included ethernet cable
A power adapter
2 detachable antennas We'll assemble these in a moment
A stand that allows you to set the router upright
And optional mounting pieces
Now we'll put the pieces together remove the router from the plastic wrapping
and remove the plastic film covering the router
Take the 2 antennas
and screw both into the back of the router
And now you are ready to to install the DIR-825
But first, let's get a closer look at the ports on the router
On the front are the power and network activity light LEDs
On the side WPS for easy configuration of devices
Four LAN ports and one internet port, USB SharePort
We will cover that in another video reset button and power
and of course you have the two antennas
Let's power up the DIR-825 and plug in the cables
Somewhere near your modem, First plug an ethernet cable
directly from your modem into the port labeled "internet"
Next, plug the power to the wall and then to the back of the DIR-825
When all the lights on the front of the DIR-825 turn blue you are
good to go.
This may take a moment or two so please be patient
We recommend taking an additional few minutes to set up some simple security.
Open a web browser and log into the router
by typing the default address as in the address bar.
Leave the password blank for the default and if prompted type in the characters in
the box
After logging in On the left side navigation, click Wireless
Settings and down at the bottom click on Manual Wireless
Network Setup
Here you can find all your wireless network settings,
but what we are interested in is both the 2.4 Ghz Band and 5 Ghz Band Wireless Security
First, go to the 2.4 Ghz Band Wireless Security Mode
From the drop down select WPA-personal
You can leave the WPA settings as their defaults, but
You will need to create a pre-shared key This can be any 8 or longer password using
letters and/or numbers.
It's best to write this password down somewhere for safe keeping because you will need it
when connecting any wireless devices
Next, we'll change the 5Ghz Band Wireless Security Mode
Follow the same steps as we did with the 2.4 Ghz
by selecting WPA Personal
and entering a pre-shared key
Navigate back to the top of the page click save settings and you are finished.
Congratulations, your new D-Link® Xtreme N™ Dual Band Gigabit Router DIR-825 with
2.4 and 5 Ghz wireless signals is ready for streaming high bandwidth content while browsing
the internet without slowing down your network.
