Please tell me how to reset the password on my DIR655 Dlink wifi router


There should be a reset button on the back of the router. Push it and hold for 60 seconds. It should reset all of your settings including your password.

I cannot see the icon of wifi if i already connected to it. how to sset up wireless connection on my laptop?


Hi Jerome,

Which operating system are you using? If it's Vista/Windows 7...

1) Click "START" and in the search area, type in "Network and Sharing Center"

2) Select it, and look for "Manage Wireless Networks" in the left hand column to set up wireless connections.

3) ...and go from there to add/modify any wireless networks you want to join or have already joined.

Hope this helps

Use card slot (on right side) D-Link wireless adapter DWA-642 works great.
or you can use 1 USB port with a D-Link DWA-125 Wireless adapter
Both are wireless N and backward compatable.

Notebook does not connect to LAN or wireless


The dlinks have a tendency to reset to factory settings when you do a firmware upgrade. Connect to the router using a wired connection or using another computer, confirm the settings are what you want, not the defaults. NEVER use the default wireless name (in this case: dlink), always change it to something nobody around you is using!

My asus laptop pro3 series version F3JC will not connect to or locate wireless network at home which uses d-link wireless router. laptop is running vista premium. it will connect if i use a wireless usb...


I have seen issues like this before , certain chipsets/drivers of wireless cards and routers just dont like each other.

We know your wireless card works just as we know your router works. Trick is to get them to play nice together. Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy way to do this, you will have to try different driver and firmware combos until you find one that works.

You can get dlink updates here
http://support.dlink.com/downloads/

And you can try these drivers here.

One other thing you can try before messing around with drivers and firmware is changing the application you use for wireless. The default for your setup is probably Intel Proset. Try using the native Vista wireless manager and see if that does anything. to access that go to start , run , type in services.msc, scroll down to WLAN auto config. Double click on it and then click on start. If you still cant see your router, its time to start trying drivers and firmware.

Wireless signal intermittent


First make sure you have the latest update for your bios and wireless device, your os is probably non preload so clean any access connections utility provided by ibm, rather than using the ibm thinkvantage access connection make sure to use the windows own utility to control the wireless device

Vista wireless networking

I have thought about mac filtering. I don't think it is as secure as some think. I am not a big fan. spoof the mac is not that hard anymore. If however I have to go back to wep then I will do a combo of wep, and mac filter.

I know no wireless is foolproff, but I want to make it as hard as possible for warhawks.

Wireless connection no longer works after vista upgrade


HP uses "branded" wireless modules,which means it's got to be HP or it doesn't get to play.
Does device manager see the wireless device? I've had similar situations with the 8000s. Always the driver or the wireless utility was the problem. Try letting windows manage the device, or if you already are, disable that and use the devices utiliy to manage it.
BTW, most systems consider BT as wireless.
Good luck, hope that helps
