Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router
Dir-635 as acsess point dir -655 as n router
first let's back up and get the terminology right (otherwise you will not find any information on the internet.)
Your 655 will be the Access point, because it gives access to the wired WAN (ISP, Internet, etc.), or 'outside world".
Your 635 will be called a Bridge, because it bridges the connection from the access point to other wired or wireless clients inside your own network.
If this mode is accessible for you depends on the firmware you have installed. Look at this posting.
Your D-Link 635 is unfortunately not compatible with other firmware, which would be necessary to convert it into a bridge. (See here)
Sorry - but that's the reason why so many people get a Linksys or Buffalo router.
Also - the distance of 500 meters (open air or not) requires an increased transmitting power from the access point (655) and you will have to use different antennas. Third-party firmware also allows you to modify the standard power settings, but you have to make sure that you stay within legal limits of the place where you set this up. If your signal interferes with someone else's, you might get into trouble or even get a fine.
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
