Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router
Thanks for using Fixya! we happen to have the same router DLink I also have a PC and a laptop wireless and cable hooked up. What I had to do to get it to work all around was go to 192.168.0.1 and login to the router itself. If you have not already changed this out it will be its default setting for the username and password which is, admin for both username and password, usually I just have t login he username top one only, if you are going to change that make sure that you will remember what you placed if you do forget all you have to do is unplug the router from the wall socket and let it set for about 30 seconds this sets the default password back to "admin". Then once logged in go to wireless and do the setup option automatically you may have to provide a user name and password for access to the wireless portion of your router and access to the Internet.
You do not want to leave this open for public as far as security for yourself is concerned. If you are not worried about that then open to the public in your area it will provide folks Internet "Free" your dime I used to do this when I did not have a bank account online. It is not suggested just what I do!
Now be sure that once you have all these configurations setup and read the information once at the DLink page. Check it out you can also learn how to allow certain pages from being opened and allowed to pass through the router. So I had to go in and learn about settings and do this myself it is a lot easier these days compared to when I first started using them.
The reset button is located on the rear portion of the router. If you wish to reset the router I use a toothpick and push the little button where it says reset this resets my router in case something gets out of sorts which often does. Depending on how many times you move the cables or change out computers I repair several at a time so often I have to reset the router and modem. It is not uncommon to do so. This is why they now use DYNAMIC IP services. This is a set device IP assigned by your Internet Provider.
I do hope that this gives you some sort of an idea and what to look for or how to get the router to chat with your modem and your computers. Another help site for Dlink Click Here! Thanks for using Fixya! Please post a vote for me if this assisted you at all? John

Testimonial: "Thanks for all the detailed help!"
You could try either:
Resetting the router entirely (your service provider should have suggested this)
Re-load the software that came with the router
Restoring Windows back to an earlier time when it did work.
