Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router
I am operating on windows xp PRO with a D-Link DIR-655 router (Firmware Version: 1.21) and I have installed the the latest SharePort utitity (version 3.0.0 R1).
I am trying to connect my iosafe solo 1.5 TB external HD to my router via USB either through my computer or the USB port on the back of the router. The problem I am having is that the SharePort Utility simply cannot detect my hard drive. I have added it and SXUPTP to my list of exception for Windows firewall. I have configured my external hard drive for file sharing by right clicking on the drive icon and manually selecting the settings through sharing and security.I have tried using a different USB cord. I have also tried uninstalling/reinstalling the SharePort Utility
I am not sure if the problem lies with the SharePort Utility or with the iosafe freeware. I read quite a few blogs and support forums and i seem to be the only one having this problem that i know of. I do not have another external hard drive to test unfortunately.

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.

Do you see wireless signal of your router from your Laptop? If not! make sure the Wi-Fi of your Laptop is activated for you to get online wirelessly.

I would suggest you try to change the channel to a higher one and this solves this problem most of the times...You need to go to your router configuration to do that usually by opening a browser and type 192.168 ... and log in into your router...Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.
