Lost Wireless Connection to Laptops

I plugged the cable to the INternet on the back of the D-Link DIR-655 to ap printer and then plugged it back into the router. We now have no wireless to our laptops. We have internet through wildblue and it works on the desktop that is connected to the box.

Any ideas or suggestions? Could I have damaged the cable and would it need to be replaced? Did I lose information? I am lost!

Thanks-
Jan

The internet port on the router needs to be connected to the Wildblue modem.

everything else connects to the OTHER ports on the router, never to the internet port.

you may need to power cycle both your wildblue modem and your router at this point.

I have two computers, Computer A that is hard wired to a cable modem and Computer B with a D-Link DWA-556 card in it. I also have a D-Link DIR-655 wireless router connected to the cable modem. My problem...


Does folder sharing work through WiFi?
Might be that the IP ranges are not in the same subclass network if the IP numbers are not coming from the same DHCP server.
Did you check the IP number on Computer B in case of the cabled connection and when it is connected on the WiFi? They should only differ in the last digits, not the first 3 groups.

Problem with DIR 655


On the laptops, check that your Internet is set to use "Private" networks as opposed to "Public". Private networks allow others to see you and you to see others on the network, once you've entered the proper pass phrase as set up in the router's software. Your Manual for the router has the instructions you need to complete this process.

D-Link DIR 655 - DHCP server but no internet


This usually happens when the router has timed out trying to grab an IP address from your modem.

I suggest unplugging your router and modem, waiting 1 minute, plugging in your modem, wait 1 minute, plug in your router, wait 1 minute, then try to connect again.

Dir 655 will not install


You should not need to enter any of that information.

The router will find the internet on it's own, once the ethernet cable is connected and the router is turned on.

Press the reset button at the back of the modem for 20-30 seconds, this resets the router to square 1. Power down, wait 30 seconds, then power back up. You should have internet connection to the router, which can be tested by connecting another ethernet cable from the router to the ethernet connector on your computer.

Reply back what your objective is in getting to the routers setup page.
