Orange globe keeps appearing on my dlink dir655 and it disconnects internet


First try replacing your LAN cable between you internet modem and the router. A bad cable the is intermittent may cause this issue. Try rebooting the modem. Also if possible try a direct connection to your internet modem by LAN cable or wireless and see if your connection stays up. You could have a bad internet modem or other connection issue from your provider

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset.

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.

I have a DIR-600 router to connect my Cable modem and use wireless connection to connect to the internet. It was all working fine till my modem LAN port got damaged somehow.I have changed the modem and now...


Try following this order before you connect your computer to the router.
power off all your equipment (cable modem & router & your computer's wireless card)
first, power on the cable modem, give it some time to boot up and get an IP from the ISP, say 30 secs.
then, power on the router, again, give it some time to boot and obtain its internet IP from the cable modem
finally, enable wireless on you computer and connect to the router.

if this doesn't solve the problem try resetting the router to factory defaults by pressing the reset button at its back for about 10 seconds with the router powered on.

This your router's manual it may turn handy:

Globe icon orange.


This is usually indicative of an issue with your upstream Internet connection. Try powering off your ISP-provided modem (cable, DSL, FIOS, etc.) for 10 minutes, then plugging it back in.

  • Connect your computer directly to your cable or DSL modem. If you see a log-in screen for your Internet Service Provider, make a note of the user name and password.

  • Unplug your router and your cable or DSL modem.
  • Plug your modem to your Belkin router's "WAN" port. Connect your computer to one of your Belkin router's numbered ports.
  • Turn on in your modem and wait 10 seconds. Plug in your router and restart your computer.
  • Select "Start," then "Control Panel" and then "Network Connections." Right-click "Local Area Connection" to bring up your network connection properties.
  • Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)," then "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" and then "Obtain DNS Server Addresses Automatically."
  • Open your web browser. If you are prompted for a user name and password, enter the information you recorded in Step 1

    Globe symbol won't turn green.


    I was banging my head for 2 days with about 35 different configurations and finally tried the following and it worked just fine. Also, tried connecting 3 computers and they all connected with "NO" issues. Even connected wireless with "NO" issues. Now I am at 20mb download speed...J compared to AT&T 1.5mb download speed.

    This is my DLINK model -> (DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router Wireless router)


    1. Reset your Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem by unplugging it for 5 minutes.

    2. Then reset your DLINK Router to the manufactures default settings. Then Unplug DLINK Router for 1 minute then plug it back in (Just plug your cat5 cable into port 1 and connect it to your computer) there should not be anything else plugged into the DLINK Router at the time you make the changes. Just 1 computer can be connected.

    3. Went into the DLINK configuration 192.168.0.1 and changed the PPPOE setting that I was using for my AT&T Modem to Dynamic IP (DHCP). Once you make the changes save them and then unplug your DLINK Router it's off.

    4. Turn on Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem and wait until all lights are on. Now plug in a cat5 cable from the Surfboard Comcast modem (NOT A CROSSOVER CABLE LIKE THE CD INDICATES) to the INTERNET port of your DLINK Router. Now turn on your DLINK router.

    5. Then turn on your computers or restart them and it will pick up IP Addresses from your DLINK Router

    The signal is strong but there's no connection to internet


    I have this problem sometimes. If you lose connection to the modem, you can't connect back to it, you have to reset the modem. Goto the modem, unplug it, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. Goto your connections, select yours, disconnect and then reconnect, wait a few seconds and it should connect. Hope this helps, let me know if it does or doesn't.

    At the bottom of my router are two icons, the modem and the internet, which are flashing orange. all other icons are blue. i am unable to get a connection. I also have VOIP connected to my router, if that...


    Some routers will not get online if voip is connected while repairing connection. I would unplug your voip and try to connect then. Unplug your modem for about 30-45 seconds and then make sure all wiring is correct. Once you are able to connect the plug your voip back in. Internet light is not supposed to be orange but green or on some routers blue. If your modem aslo has orange light it is possible it is your provider issue. I would also check with them if steps i described above dont work. Good luck.
