Sorry, but the DIR-657 is my only router.  Have you tried connecting an Android device to your DIR-657 yet?  Android + DIR-657 + Mode N + AES seems to be a common theme for failures.  And I also appreciate your assistance.

Did D-Link mention anything about the IPv6 issue?

Well, I got some information regarding the 657. New FW is to be released soon, no mention of what it fixes however I presume it in regards to WiFi and probably Samsung and or Motorola client device operation with the 657. Bad news is is that they are not going to do anything about IPv6 operation since the 657 is headed for EOL from what they say.  Undecided Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I personally feel that the 657 didn't get enough TLC during it's life span. It was said that if IPv6 users need help with the 657, to call in to D-Link support and get a solution, weather that be a FW fix or maybe something else, I don't know. So please contact D-Link support directly on the phone. Ask for level 2 or 3 or higher support I would recommend.

It has been a good router, for me at least. I presume the WiFi issues seen are isolated to some specific client products and I'm hoping that D-Link will address them before they officially stop development.

Please be patient while we wait on the next FW build. I'm keeping an eye on it's arrival. The new FW should include the Samsung issue seen and was mentioned that this effects this model router, the 655 and 825 series. The 655 Rev A has now been fixed and FW was released. I presume Rev B could see a release as well. I haven't seen anything for the 825 yet.

I'll keep everyone posted.
Thank you for the update.  Hopefully they'll get mode N working for those of us who are having issues.  That's too bad about IPv6 though, especially since it's working on Rev 1.01 firmware.

By asking us to call D-Link support, are you implying they may issue another FW release if enough people bring up the IPv6 issue?

Hello, thanks for the replies. I switched to g only, and haven't dropped wireless connection for 2 days.

The phones are both androids. One of the phones is the only device that never had an issue with the router.

I am in Allentown, PA, and have RCN cable internet, Motorola surfboard SB501 modem (I think).

There are cordless phones in the house.

I installed inSSIDer, but haven't figured out how to use it, yet. The Network tab is inactive. Is it because my desktop is not wireless? I will install it on a wireless laptop and see what happens.

Ya you need to install InSSIDer app on a PC that has wireless abilities.

Seem to be that the 657 and Motorola Androids are not working well on N mode. D-Link is aware of this. I would recommend that you phone contact D-Link support, ask for level 2 or higher support and let them know that you and others are exhibiting this issue with Android phones. Hope any additional information will help push a fix thru.

Keep us posted.

A year later, I have Wifi stability issues with my router. Suddenly a number of my wifi terminals disconnect and get in Status panel of router (On Wireles tab) IP 0.0.0.0

A few minutes after, Wifi of those devices comes back to live. Must be Router, or other devices are having the same problem intermittent.  ??? ??? ??? ???

Any help would be appreciated. ;)

DATA:

Mode Mixed n/g/b
Security WPA-P
WPA Mode = AUTO (WPA or WPA2)
Cipher = AES
GROUP KEY UPDATE INTERVAL 3600

Is DHCP server

HT 20/40 is disabled and channel is 20/40.
WMM Enabled.

Thanks, anyway.

DATA:

Mode Mixed n/g/b
Try Mised G and N then test with single mode G and Single mode N.
Security WPA-P
WPA Mode = AUTO (WPA or WPA2)
Try WPA2 Only when using Single mode N.
Cipher = AES
You'll need to use AUTO TPIK and AES if you have Mixed B/G/N modes or Mixed G and N. AES only is not supported on Single mode G or Mixed G and N.
GROUP KEY UPDATE INTERVAL 3600

Is DHCP server

HT 20/40 is disabled and channel is 20/40.
You'll need to enable HT 20/40 when using Mixed All mode or Mixed G and N or Single mode G. IT's not needed for Single N mode.
WMM Enabled.

Test with Short GI disabled

Has anybody tried the external antennas mod ?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7gZ2Ouy3VU

After 9 pages of connectivity issues i believe the problem is the router itself, not the surrounding environment.
 Is there going to be a firmware update for EU, or the firmware is not the solution for the connection problems?

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.

Actually there is a problem with the FW and some compatibility problem with some cell phone Mfr and the use of N mode and WPA2. Some users have switched to single G more and use of WPA and TPIK to fix some of there problems.

Unfortunately, this model router has hit a Phased Out Status and will probably not be getting anymore FW updates.

One suggestion to fix the bad FW, would be to disable the 2.4Ghz radio on the 657 and connect up a DAP model wireless AP. Either a 2.4Ghz DAP or a dual band 2.4/5Ghz DAP if users wish to keep the 657 router feature going which do work well.

My HW version is  A1, and my Firmware version is 1.02.
I'm not using any cell phones in my network and still having connection problems with my notebook.
I don't see any point of buying three times more expensive DAP and still using the old device.

I understand that Forum Moderator is not awolled to speak about any hardware changes to any devices.
So I'm asking if someone from the regular users had tried the external antenna mod as in the video:

Maybe you can be our first. SInce this unit is EOL, im sure your modification information will help others if it works. I personally haven't had any issues with mine. Range is decent for it's design.

IT would have been nice if the person would have installed and displayed actual antennas on the 657 after he was done with the mod.  ::)

This router didn't get a lot of development and use so I presume there maybe nobody that has done the mod thats here on the forums.

Let us know if you do it and how it goes.

Just retuned this device to the shop and got different brand. Cannot believe that I can still buy it, and all devices are not returend to manufacturer.

Only because of this dir-657 I will never think about of buying any Dlink again   >:(
