No -there are no drivers to install. I would even suggest not to use any CD that came with the router (in your case the so-called "Quick Router Setup Wizard CD".
It is always better to configure the router by hand, otherwise you have to look forever if you have to troubleshoot.

If you connect your Mac to your DSL- or cable modem, can you access the internet?
If yes, then you have to configure your router. If not, then there is a problem with your internet connection in general and you have to contact your ISP.

Connect to your router (via cable) and check that the SSID is broadcasted and your wireless security is turned off, until you can connect wireless to your router. Look at the manual page 22 (if you don't have a manual, you can get it here.)

  • Enable Wireless: ON
  • SSID: whatever you like
  • 802.11 Mode: MIXED (unless your MAC is 802.11n capable - you can change that later)
  • Channel Width: AUTO
  • Visibility Status: VISIBLE
Then follow the Wireless Security Setup Wizard (ideally do it manually, but this works too). You find a description up from page 64 in your manual. For now, select no wireless security and complete the wizard. Don't forget to save your settings.

Now you should be able to connect to your routerwireless from your Mac.
After this is accomplished, go back to the wireless security setup and secure your network with WPA2 Authentication.

If you have any more questions or get stuck at one point, 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.
