Cannot reset D-link DIR 655 router to factory default? How to open DIR 655 router??

Hi all, I am having headaches from this DIR-655 router from the following reasons: - CANNOT access router's log in page - CANNOT reset to factory default (apparently the reset button does not work) - No status LED (might be broken, but my wired Internet is still working) I have a U-verse 2wire 3600HGV. It's my wifi router at the moment, but I want a wireless N capable router so I added DIR-655 in between 2wire and my home network. For the first couple of resets, it worked as intended, but today no matter how long I pressed the reset button, I did not see the lights in front blinked in succession to know that the reset was done successfully. So, I plan to pry this router's gut open. Can anyone give me an advice before I tear this apart? Return this unit to D-Link is not an option for me.

Perhaps the router is not broadcasting its SSID, therefore is invisible to would be tappers. Type into a browser on a computer directly wired to the router, leave the username blank, if you havent changed it, the password is admin by default. Once logged in check that wireless is enabled and that you are broadcasting the ssid, you may want to setup/change security settings for the wireless connection at this time also.

SOURCE: Cannot configure D-Link DIR 625 wireless router

Hey Raj - Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug your modem back in. When the lights return to normal (except the activity light) , plug your router back in. Give it 10 seconds and try it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

SOURCE: cannot reset or access configuration page.

The PC will detect a closed loop within the Network cable so forget that. Sorry but the router is bad if you cannot access it and the reset button does not help.

Did not successfully complete the new router setup using the wizard, so need to reset the default settings on the DIR-655 router in order to start over. How do I do this?

Check the back of the router, you will see a little button inside an hole near the word RESET. Now you have to push and hold that button, with a pen or something similar, for about 10 seconds. After that your router will be reverted to factory settings and you can do the configuration wizard again.

Lost dlink dir 655 password

Default user is Admin and default password is blank. (Don't type anything)

If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults. To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is When logging in, the username is admin and leave the password box empty.

D-link router model:DIR-655, laptop loss wireless signal , not able to connect router and computer: also not able to reset the password. Thanks! Peter

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.

Then anything Peter did will be erased and you can set-up your router factory fresh.

Cannot connect to wireless internet

How did you reset the wireless router back to the factory defaults?
Did you use the Reset button on the back of the D-Link?
The encryption setting is set in the router's wireless configuration.
After the router has been set to the factory default, connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and open IE browser and enter the configuration IP address ( the default login = admin and the PW = blank (just press enter)
Then change to default password so it prevents anyone changing the router's wireless configuration.
The encryption default should be not be enabled.
Change the SSID so you and your guests can identify your wireless router.
You can enable encryption if you wish to prevent unauthorized access, but you need to advise your guests of the encryption key.
