Make sure the power setting does not allow the ethernet card to be shut off. Also look through the other settings on the ethernet card properties menu. Some of those affect the stability of the connection. You access the setting through device manager.

Connect dlink 655 router. Wireless works well on laptop pc and on 2nd desktop wireless, but does not work on base set. Why?

There are number of reasons, but lets try something 1st
Assuming your computer is fit, try a WIRED connection. If that works, we know your base set is configured properly to receive the internet.
If it does not work wired, then we need to find out why (another topic, specify wired)
Things to look at for wireless:
The settings on your PC for the wireless adapter:
Go to settings (network) rightclick on properties and bring up the network device properties.
Go to the advanced tab and check the configuration of:
MTU (Maximum Transfer Units) is set to auto or to the same as your router
Channel, make sure your PC is on the same channel as your wireless is broadcasting from.
Workgroup, insure that your workgroup is the same for all computers in your network (for file sharing)
Make sure you have an antenna to receive wireless on your desktop.

The are the common things.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Are you trying to set up the router. You can do it manually without the CD. Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem. If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first. If your computer is able to go online through the modem then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I have a DIR 655 D Link router and I can't save changes.

Lots of possibilities, especially if the wireless device and your PC are older - the DIR 655 doesn't support wireless protocols 802.11 a and b, for example, only the newer g and n.
Start with getting the router software up to date (see )
using an Ethernet link to a PC, and then debug the wireless access. The DNS message could be caused by the Windows wireless adapter config having a manual IP address vs the router being set for DHCP (dynamic) or vice versa.

Cannot connect via wireless to dlink 655. wired connection works fine. when i disconnect to go wireless the laptop sees the dlink but there is no internet connection. running Vista Home Premium. static...

You must manually configure the wireless settings. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Remove all the listed network there. Then click Add > Add Network in Range > Select your signal > Type the security if you have and press connect. That should do it.

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655

The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.
