Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router

My DIR-655 won't work!

I just got a DIR-655. Tried to install it with disc and manually. I have an Actiontec DLS modem. I have one computer hooked to modem via USB and one by cat 5 (RJ45 internet) cable. Both work fine on the modem alone, but I loose internet when I hook up the DIR 655. I 've power cycled, rebooted etc. Nothing seems to work.

During the install, the software claimed it found and another router.

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.

I've plugged the modem into the router and the four lights on the left of the router are on, the middle two blinking; however, despite being able to detect the router wirelessly I am not able to gain...


One thing to try is to hard reset the modem and the router. This will work on an unprotected router that won't connect most of the time.
This link is to the data sheet d-link gives for this router. ftp://ftp10.dlink.com/pdfs/products/DIR-655/DIR-655_ds.pdf
This one is to the software and instillation guides they provide. Select your country from the three. Then there is a link to a FAQ below the two download links that will help you find which of the two that you need.

Setup DIR-655 w/ Westell 6100 USB DSL Modem


First check if your computer can get on the modem with an Ethernet ( This is to find out if your router will work with your modem) If you cannot get on give your ISP a call to have them configure the modem for Ethernet connection. If you do get on then connect the router to the modem and your computer to the router. You can run the CD for the router or do the connection manually.
