D-Link DIR 655- losing connection with ntwk is "INVISIBLE"

DIR 655, HW A3, FW 1.21- when I set router not to broadcast SSID (invisible mode) I lose connection to my Blackberry. Other wireless devices maintain connection. Upgraded from a D-Link DI 624 (circa 2001) and basically copied the same settings. Currently I have desktop, 2 laptops, 1 mac book, 2 blackberry's- both blackberry's lose connection upon activating "invisible" mode.

Any ideas as to why? Thanks in advance

    Blackberry Curves will not connect with D-Link DIR-655 when SSID is set to "invisible". Upgraded from a Netgear wireless router that was set to NOT broadcast the SSID, and when manually entering the SSID into the Blackberry it was repeatedly found just fine. Thoughts, anyone? WEP vs WPA vs. WPA2 problem? 802.11b/g vs. n problem? Thanks for any help...

How can i fix dir 615 ssid stop broadcasting issue?


Step 1: Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1 by default).
Step 2: Enter the username (admin) and password
Step 3: Under Setup Select the Wireless tab
Step 4: On Wireless Tab - Select Invisible if you do not want the SSID of your wireless network to be broadcasted by the DIR-615. If Invisible is selected, the SSID of the DIR-615 will not be seen by Site Survey utilities so your wireless clients will have to know the SSID of your DIR-615 in order to connect to it.

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

I lost my password


Take look at the following link. This will reset your 655 to the factory defaults (including the password).

NOTE: You will lose any settings you have made, and will have to redo them.

The problem you are having is that on your computer you need to set the wireless network to "connect even when network is not broadcasting"

Setting the network to invisible stops the router broadcasting the SSID (Name of the network). If your computer is only looking for SSIDs that are being broadcast it will not connect to the network when you set it to invisible.

Hiya, Iv installed the wireless but the wireless network connection on my laptop is not connected and it says there is no wireless networks were found in range.


Hmm... If your router seems to be operating like it should (it really doesn't even need an internet connection for the laptop to connect), and you just installed it, my guess would be that the SSID broadcast is disabled. You would have to log into your router and check the wireless section to see if it is. If so, you can leave it that way (which is actually what I would recommend, for security) and setup the network manually on your laptop, or enable the broadcast and connect it like you normally would. If you decide to leave it disabled, then you will need to make a network connection manually on your laptop. You will need to put in the SSID, WEP/WPA passkey (if you have one), and you will have to make sure that you have the option "connect even if this device is not broadcasting" checked. Once you do that, it should work. When your SSID isn't broadcasting, its making itself pretty much invisible to other devices. You can learn more about this here, if you wish.

No Wireless Connectivity


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.
