I noticed a nearby wifi router on channel 1 which is what my 657 was on.  So I manually set mine to channel 4 and today played about 3 hours of BO2 with no issues.  No lag, no drops, disconnects, etc.

I'll continue to monitor this week as well.

Single mode N 2.4Ghz, WPA2-AES.

None so far. Not sure if 2nd xbox is disconnecting or if user is timing out at the select class menu...
Definitely thing there is some interference with the Turtle Beach headset though. Got to keep it far away from any 2.4Ghz router.

I've had great success with changing my wifi channel to channel 4. 

The other signals in the are on channel 1 (signal strength -33) and channel 7 (signal strength -64).

The only thing I noticed was that if 2 game consoles were online at the the same time gaming using the QoS for XBL for multiple game consoles and other devices came online or using resources, we would see the intermittent connection icon appear during game play. While I was xfering files yesterday on windows, my roommate saw this on his console. I wasn't gaming so just the file xfer was going on in Windows and he was gaming on BO. Both connected at 2.4Ghz. The priority was set for 1 or 50 I think on the game console an windows was set for 128. So I don't think QoS was doing anything here. Or the way I had it set up isn't right. I am wondering if there could be a minor issue with multiple devices connecting and gaming on 2.4Ghz.
Even though I have showed that doing file xfers over 2.4Ghz WiFi is working with large file sizes.

I put the 857 online last nite after the 657 tests were over. 2.4Ghz was good and even better however i think one problem that I see is having my turtle beach head set so close to the router, I hear some interferences sometimes in the ears and notice some lag going on. I moved the xbox slim back to 5Ghz and put mine back to hard wired. I think that over all, the 2.4Ghz is good and seems stable, however for doing any major band width traffic, like gaming, 2.4Ghz isn't the best if more than one game console or PC is being used. I presume single game devices at a time is good. Gaming is most preferred over a wired LAN connection though.

Well, i've got also a problem with the wifi connection. Wired works like al charm, but wireless is a real problem. I tried all the different suggested settings mentioned in this thread and the other threads, but my laptop (HP Pro-book, Xubuntu) and phone (HTC Desire S, android) are losing the connection, not the wlan connection itself, but I cannot acces the internet after some time, a reboot of the router solves the problem for a random period. While the wired connected computers can acces the internet just fine. Also when I connect my Pro-book wired on the router there is no problem at all.

Strange thing is that when I look into the wireless statuspage of the router (when I cannot acces the internet wireless) there are no wireless clients connected, but my phone and laptop are still connected (wlan status notification on both).

Connecting to my other wireless routers (Asus, Netgear, Linksys) works perfectly.

I think this is my 30th wireless router I configure, including a bunch of myself flashed DD-WRT's, but this is the first time that I cannot solve the problem. I'm running out of options for the first time...

I think (wild guess) the "Power saving by link status" is a part of the problem.

Where is this "Power Saving by Link Status" option on the router that you mentioned? Is this an option that can be disabled or enabled?

I'm home now, the router is at my office. I'm a few days off so that has to wait till monday.

Flashed with the latest firmware, 1.01b15.

What region are you located?

Europe, the Netherlands.

For both, no/ nothing.

It is not a option you can find in the settings, I searched everywhere. It is mentioned in the specs:

Quote
D-Link Green™ Technology
+ Power saving by link status
+ Power saving by cable length
+ Power saving by wireless LAN scheduling

DIR-657 Specs

But, like I said, its a wild guess.

Ok,
Did you perform a factory reset before and after sending the FW and setting up from scratch?

Have you been in contact with DLink support about this yet. I would recommend that you phone contact Tier 2 or higher and talk to someone about this. Seems like your region is reporting issues with this. I would recommend phone contact. Email would not be of any help here.

Yes, that's always one of my first reactions. I did a bunch of DD-WRT flashes on other routers, a factory reset is the first thing to do with DD-WRT.

Well, it seems your pictures have issues (unless it's me :) )

I'm glad to read that you have no issue with the 657.
For me it didn't work properly. I replaced it with a 655, without changing anything else and my problem was solved (wifi constantly disconnecting).
I don't know where you get your 657 (mine was from Mediamart, Brussels) but everybody knows that for this kind of hardware we can have different ships from one week to the other and different results at the end.

It's the first time I have a problem with a D-Link product.

Yes I'm working on resolving the picture issue. Thanks for letting me know..

Seems that your region is seeing some issues with WiFi. As far as where we get the actual HW from is probably from different Mfr'g maybe or the HW could be the same and maybe is just the FW that could be resulting in some bad behavior in these regions. I am tracking a FW issue that is WiFi related on a DIR-826L in which the latest breaks WiFi badly, however downgrading to a prior version fixes it.  :-\

There are differences at least on the FW side of things between NA and EU regions so there a possible FW issue here seen in your region. I do think that overall, the 657 needs another release of FW code and some coding since it's been a while. When and if that might happen, not sure. Newer products are on the way and eventually some of these older models will not be developed any more.

I'll attempt to let DLink know about this and have them review it. However I know that the NA region does not develop for fix anything for EU regions or vice versa. They mostly contact the EU region and let them know about it.

Sounds like your 655 is working well for you. I hope you will enjoy it.
