Question about D-Link DIR-655 Wireless Router

2 Answers

When using my D-Link-655 router, I can't access some Web sites, but I can access others. This applies to all computers on my network. I can, for example, access my work (company internal) websites and use a VPN connection. I can access www.nyt.com but not www.washintonpost.com or www.becu.org. Any ideas? thanks, jeff b

Have you isolated the problem by directly plugging your computer directly to your modem, bypassing your router? If you have done this but still cannot browse some websites, then this is a DNS problem with your Internet Provider. Try using Open DNS, 208.67.220.220 as Primary and 208.67.222.222 as secondary. Then try to browse again. But if you have plugged directly to the modem and was able to access those websites, then there is a restriction on your router and you may need to press and hold the reset button to reset it back to factory defaults.

Just bought a D-Link wireless router (DIR-655). I have a static IP, so config using static IP info. Wireless works and 1 desktop works. However, main desktop can't get internet. I can ping router and...


I have the same D-Link Wireless Router and I can't say that I have run into this before.
Mine seemed to work from day one without any problems. I also purchased the D-Link adapter cards for a laptop and for my desktop that are located in other rooms.

Maybe, try a different version of IE to get it to access. I don't use Firefox, that much, so I didn't notice that firefox worked better or worse on my WiFi network.

Maybe try to shut off the broadband modem and the wifi router and the computer and then reboot all three to make sure that that's not the problem.

Also try to reset the router.

Good luck on figuring this one out.

How do I manage my network using a d link dir 655 wirless router, without buying network magic?


You can open a web-broswer such as Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the router (http://192.168.0.1).

You may also connect using the NetBIOS name int the address bar (http://dlinkrouter).

Select Admin from the drop-down menu and then enter your password. Leave the password blank by default. Type in the graphical authentication code (if you cannot read it, click Regenerate).

You may click Setup Wizard to quickly configure your router.
If you want to enter your settings without running the wizard, click Manual Configuration.

In your rounter you can see who is connecting to your network and also block computers/devices from using your network.

Hope that helps.

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.

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.

Error code 302 thats that mean?


HTTP 302 is not an error. It's simply a request for your browser to redirect to another URI. Browers aren't supposed to show you a message, they are supposed to simply follow the redirect. You should try accessing the router interface from a different web browser, such as Firefox.
