Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router
The cd is incompatible with Macs. I can plug the router in, but what else do I have to do. The instructions say to read the directions for Macs and Linux, but they are not very straightforward. Can you tell me what I need to do to use this router?
Before you Begin
This section will walk you through the installation process. Placement of the router is very important. Do not place the router in an enclosed area such as a closet, cabinet, or in the attic or garage.
Please configure the router with the computer that was last connected directly to your modem. Also, you can only use the Ethernet port on your modem. If you were using the USB connection before using the router, then you must turn off your modem, disconnect the USB cable and connect an Ethernet cable to the Internet port on the router, and then turn the modem back on. In some cases, you may need to call your ISP to change connection types (USB to Ethernet).
