took a few days, but it finally disconnected. Not accepting anymore connections. Have to reboot everything (routers).

There is nothing left on my side to troubleshoot. I have redone every single setting in pretty much every combination.

Back to G.
JoeKhar, did your router ever fail with firmware rev 1.02, mode G?  Mine eventually did.  Rev 1.01, mode G is fine though.  Perhaps D-Link will fix these issues when they fix the rev 1.02, IPv6 issue.

Any chance you'd be interested in sending me your 657 to test out? I'd be really interested in doing some testing on your unit.

At this point, no. I'm looking at new routers to be honest. Unless a firmware upgrade comes out later on.

I don't want to spend anymore money on my current routers.

I would like to thank you for all your work on here, though.

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?

Thats the only think I don't have and probably if I did, I would noticed it.

I presume that if you are using Samsung devices, this could be an issue as stated here:
http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=54171.0

I see that D-Link has fixed the DIR-655 Rev A FW recently.

I'll approach D-Link regarding the 657 and Samsung issue.

Hello, I am having a similar problem with my DIR-657 wireless connection.

It's A1, 1.01, 11bgn, 20/40, channel 6 (AUTO), TKIP and AES, cable modem.

I don't use the wireless connection, but my family members are having trouble connecting/staying connected.

If I reboot the router I can connect, but eventually devices are dropped, and won't reconnect without another reboot.

I will have to test how long connections are lasting, but I've been able to connect phones, ipad, kindle, wii, tv, and have had the same problem with all devices.

I will try some of the suggestions in this thread, but it will take some time as I am just learning.

Actually, it's a Motorola device running Android version 2.3.5 (they are up to rev 4.x now).  Still, it could be the interaction between Android's and D-Link's implementation of the AES standard.

Try this, as this has worked for me and others:
  • Log into the router.
  • Navigate to the following:  SETUP -> WIRELESS SETTINGS -> Manual Wireless Connection Setup.
  • Change 802.11 Mode to 802.11g only.
  • Save Settings, and Reboot the router.

By the way, are any of the phones that connect to the router Android phones?

Link>Welcome!
  • What region are you located?
  • Are you wired or wireless connected to the router?
  • Has a Factory Reset been performed?



Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

Router and Wired Configurations
Some things to try: - Log into the routers web page at 192.168.0.1. Use IE, Opera or FF to manage the router.
  • Turn off ALL QoS or Disable Traffic Shaping (DIR only) GameFuel (DGL only and if ON.) options, Advanced/QoS or Gamefuel.
  • Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option under Setup/Internet/Manual or under Setup/PARENTAL CONTROL/Set to>None: Static IP or Obtain Automatically From ISP.
  • Enable Use Unicasting (compatibility for some ISP DHCP Servers) under Setup/Internet/Manual.
  • Turn on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking. Link>Finding Faster DNS Addresses using Name Bench
  • Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the router. Setup/Networking. This ensures each devices gets its own IP address when turned on and connected, eliminates IP address conflicts and helps in troubleshooting.
  • Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
  • If IPv6 is an option on the router, select Local Connection Only or Disable IPv6 options under Setup/IPv6.
  • Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP under Advanced/Firewall.
  • Enable uPnP and Multi-cast Streaming under Advanced/Networking. Disable uPnP for testing Port Forwarding rules. Enable IPv6 Multi-cast Streaming for routers that have a Media Server option. Disable IPv6 Multi-cast Streaming if IPv6 or Media Server is not being used.
  • Turn off WISH, and WPS under Advanced.
  • WAN Port Speed set to Auto or specific speed? Some newer ISP modems support 1000Mb so manually setting to Gb speeds can be supported by the router. Advanced/Advanced Networking/WAN Port Speed
  • Set current Time Zone, Date and Time. Use an NTP Server feature. Tools/Time.

 
Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Can be anything and not something thats already in use by any neighboring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • 2.4Ghz Routers only: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N?
  • Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only.
  • Any cordless house phones?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many?
  • If you have any of theese options, Try turning off Short GI, WLAN Partition, HT 20/40 Co-exhistance and Extra Wireless Protection if you have it. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.
  • Enable WMM Enable Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.
