I had this problem it turns out the password format is a standard 13 charactors, if yours is shorter the computer auto fills the rest, different manufacturers use different charactors. My workround was to add extra "a"s to make 13 in total on the router, match the computers on the network and off you go.

    try using a 13 charactor password, the various manifacturers use different standards to autofill shorter passwords, just top up yours with "a"s or something to make 13 on the Dlink and all computers.

Chances are the router is not transmitting B format signals (which is what most older macs ran). Most newer routers transmit G and N signals and will only transmit B it they are told to.
However, if that is not the case, it could be one of the mac's little foibles. When WiFi started macs often sent out the login-password in a way that many routers couldn't interpret. The work-around was to put a $ directly in front of the password. So for example, if the wifi password is fred1234 and your new machines are sending that out and being accepted then your old mac should send out $fred1234.
Let me know which answer works.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

If you are getting a message that your Dlink is out of range, your drivers are being loaded correctly and you have a hardware issue, not a driver issue.
Try running a hardwire to your modem and run the setup wizard for internet connections.
Now at least your modem and router is making connection.
Next, install your software for your Dlink DIR-655 and run setup.
All should be a walk in the park.
Good luck.

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655


The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.
