Try resetting the router back to default settings. Press and hold the reset button for 10 secs. then release. After the reset, try accessing 192.168.0.1 once again and check if you have the complete details on your wireles LAN section.

When I reset my d-link router because my internet is running slow, my secure internet is lost, and it becomes an open wireless network. What am I doing wrong?


you need to reconfigured your wireless network.
when you reset your device you probably reset it to factory settings so that all configurations are lost.

I have a DIR-655, can't log on with my Itouch, also can't remember password and have not been able to reset


There is a reset button on the back of your router, hold this down for 30 seconds with a pen. You will need to go through the whole setup process after this.

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 http://us.dlink.com/products/connect/wireless-n-gigabit-router/ )
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.

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.
