    thanks for your fast reply, my question is, how to link Dir-635 (as Accsess Poin) wireless with Dir-655, because the distance between them around 500m open air.

    if m stands for meters, then what do you think? A consumer grade router without detachable antennas, and 1500 feet? Try my favorite website and look to get high-power access points and external antennas. is a starter place. gets you long range and power. In fact, use a search engine and put in "long range wireless access point" as a search and you can find a lot more equipment.

    On the more reasonable side, a pair of TP-Link 601's and directional antennas should make the hop. About $300 the pair, or take the Radiolabs bridge kit for $75 more.

Hi there,

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.

My DIR-655 won't work!

It would be helpful if you could be a bit more specific regarding the way you hooked up the dir 655 to your network and your specifc DSL modem. If the modem you are using is the Actiontec M1000 DSL modem you will not be able to obtain internet access because the DIR 655 is trying to route an already routed IP, the M1000 has a built in router / DHCP that by default is enabled. You can use option 1, access the configuration settings of your M1000 and change the WAN configuration to act as a transparent bridge. After doing so and rebooting the modem you will have to enter your DSL login information like a PPPoE username and password for example into your DIR 655 network settings. With this configuration the modem simply acts as a bridge to relay data directly to the DIR 655 and the 655 itself provides login credentials to obtain internet from your DSL provider as well as hand out IP addresses to the local network. Option 2 is to continue to use the M1000 as a router by default and disable DHCP on your DIR 655 so that it essentially acts as nothing more than a switch or wireless access point while the M1000 hands out local IP addresses. I personally would recommend using the DIR 655 to route IP's as it's got far more configuration utilities than the M1000 does as a router, and really what's the point of getting the 655 if you're only going to use it as a switch or access point when there are other simpler and cheaper devices that could do that for you.
