Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router
When the router began to configure the internet connection it asked for the ip address, default gateway, etc... I put all of this in and then it asked for the isp account name and password. No luck, can someone please explain what I am doing wrong? I followed the installation cd directions exactly.
You should not need to enter any of that information.
The router will find the internet on it's own, once the ethernet cable is connected and the router is turned on.
Press the reset button at the back of the modem for 20-30 seconds, this resets the router to square 1. Power down, wait 30 seconds, then power back up. You should have internet connection to the router, which can be tested by connecting another ethernet cable from the router to the ethernet connector on your computer.
Reply back what your objective is in getting to the routers setup page.
