Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Have D-Link 655, had no problems with the my itouch linking to the internet. But then my daughter put some type of security on the router so my neithbors can't use my internet. Everything will still link-up such as my other computers and laptops, but my itouch can not. I feel she hook up the security level to high on the D-Link, but I don't know how to change it and my daughter went back to school. So I need step by step instructions on how to fix my problem. thank you and God Bless, Have a Happy and Bless New Year. Stanley

Let's try working on the iPod Touch first. It might fix the problem.
Only try this if you know the security code/passphrase/key that your daughter used to secure your network.
On the iPod Touch, go into Settings.
From Settings, tap "WiFi"
From the list of WiFi networks, you should see your router's name (SSID) listed. Tap on the blue circle with the right-arrow all the way at the right (do not tap on any other part of the line that contains your SSID)
At the top of the resulting screen, you should have a button for "Forget This Network". Tap that button and confirm the Forget by tapping the red Forget button
The information for this network should disappear, so click the "WiFi Network" button at the top of the screen
Your SSID should again be displayed in the list. This time tap on the middle of the entry for your SSID and type the passphrase or key that your daughter used to secure your network and tap the "Join" button.
If all went well and the passphrase or key was accepted, then press the Home button on the front of the iPod Touch and see if you are now able to get on the Internet.
If you get a message that you were not able to join the network, try typing the passphrase or key again until it accepts it.
Please reply back to me with your results. If this does not work, please wait before you rate my answer and instead reply back with your results and I will work with you further.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year.

How do I obtain the security key

I would suggest a factory reset of the router. Then you can set-up the router with you own passwords, SSIDs.

I have a DIR-655, can't log on with my Itouch, also can't remember password and have not been able to reset

There is a reset button on the back of your router, hold this down for 30 seconds with a pen. You will need to go through the whole setup process after this.

I cannot connect ipod touch to the internet through d-link DIR-600 wireless router

If you know your password for your wireless and other wireless devices can connect to the wireless network, check the type of security you're using. All apple media devices (ipad, iphone, itouch) have issues with multi key WEP encryptions on some routers. Try changing the encryption type on the router to WPA, or if available, disable the extra three keys in the router (usually 4 listed).

How do i get my internet on my ipod?

Hey there,

Its a relatively simple process to enable internet on your Ipod. To do this you are going to need a little bit of information. You'll need: your routers Broadcast name (SSID), and your WEP or WPA/2 password.

Now follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your iPod. Ads by Google
    '; for(i = 0; i '+ '' + google_ads[i].line1 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
    ' + '' + google_ads[i].visible_url + ''; } s += ""; document.write(s); return; } google_ad_channel = '+7733764704+1640266093+9911500640+2974691118+9016233241+8388126455+8941458308+6876289738+7122150828' + xchannels + gchans; google_ad_client = "pub-9543332082073187"; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_ad_type = 'text'; google_feedback = 'on'; google_ad_region = "test"; google_ad_format = '250x250_as'; //-->
  2. If not at the home screen, press home button.
  3. Tap settings button.
  4. Tap "wi-fi".
  5. If broadcasting your ssid, choose from the 'choose a network' list.
  6. Tap 'security' if you are using security and select your security type.
  7. Tap the 'other network' button to get back to network setting.
  8. Type in your security password, which is your key in your wireless modem setting. (*Important: if your using WEP security type, you must use key 1 from your wireless modem setting. If your using WPA or WPA2 security types then use the WPA Passphrase)
  9. Click 'join' after you have typed in your security password.
  10. Your network name (ssid) should show in 'choose a network' with a check mark next to it.

If there are any more problems feel free to get in touch.

All the best :)

I have a d-link 655. My daughter is home with her laptop and when she tries to connect, it asks for a password...We;ve tried all the numbers on the bottom of the router...what's the problem? Sue

If your computer is running WindowsXP, then the simplest thing is to download WirelessKeyView from (don't just google that name and download from a random site you've never heard of)

If your D-Link is using WEP encryption, you'll see the password directly.
If it's running WPA-PSK encryption, you'll either see the password directly, or you'll see a long key that looks like random letters and numbers. Go ahead and have your daughter type that key in exactly as it's shown, and she'll be able to connect.

The other way is to connect to your D-Link configuration service and see if it displays the password for you. That's much more involved, but I can walk you through it if you want to go that route, just post back here and we'll get started.

And please remember to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me before you go!
