You need to be a bit more specific. I presume the password you are entering is the WEP or WPA one. First thing is to check that you are entering the precise type of password WEP WPA TKIP etc. If you can then connect to the wifi you then need to connect to the network check the TCP/IP settings in the Network configuration settings for the Wireless Network Adaptor - easiest way is choose a number in the same range as your router but a lot higher say 192.168.1.100 and try DNS as 4.2.2.3 and 4.2.2.4

I can't connect to my D-Link DIR655 wireless router


Is this just the admin password or the wireless password? The password is always case sensitive, are you sure you are typing it in exactly the same? Maybe your caps lock is stuck on on the computer you are trying to access it with.

How do i hook the dang think up to my computer?


Turn your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) off.
Turn the router off.
Turn your computer off.

Cable-modem <---- Ethernet cable ---> WAN (or 'Internet') port on the router.

LAN (or 'network') port #1 on router <---- Ethernet cable ---> network-port on your computer.

Turn the modem on. Wait for its lamps to settle-down to a repetitive pattern.
Turn the router on. Wait for its lamps to settle-down to a repetitive pattern.
Turn the computer on. Wait for Windows to start-up.
You now should have Internet access.

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like "Default Gateway ... 192.168.xxx.yyy"
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://192.168.xxx.yyy
Press Enter
Login to the web-interface "inside" the router
Click to run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure the router's "wireless" configuration:
* pick an SSID
* pick an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* pick a password

Now, your "wireless" devices can connect to the router.

Trying to connect a new laptop to my linksys wireless setup and I enter the WPA key and it says it is aquiring network address, but never does. What am I missing.


Stop and start over with Router Setup by using a paper clip to press router reset button. Now, with router connected via CAT-5 cable to a computer's NIC. On this computer, using IE or other web access, go to http://192.168.1.1 to access router web setup. Set the Wireless properties, such as SSID (Network Name) and Security properties, like WEP/WPA passwords. This password will be needed by all computers accessing this router's signal. At this point, your router should be putting out a signal identified by the SSID name, all other settings for the router should be set already to the point where it will work, like the IP addresses declared in the router setup. Best left alone, at least till it is up and running. It gets the network address from your Internet Provider, and they are the only ones that can give you an IP address.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
