The update reset the router back to the defaults so be sure to do a configuration backup BEFORE using this update.  So far the update seems to be working.  My S4 has not disconnected for several hours.

Does anyone know what was modified to get it to work?

IT's always a default process when updating FW that the configuration gets blown away. Ya, always do a Save Configuration to File.

We know know what was changed. I presume it's all coding.

Glad it's working for you know. Enjoy.  ;)

  • 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 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard), so you might want to try TPIK (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temporal_Key_Integrity_Protocol) only or Auto TPIK and AES.
  • What wireless devices do you have connected?

I've used both "width sets", security setting as WPA personal.. I've tried to set AES only, but same negative results...This problem occurs only with my apple devices(iphone+ipad-iOS) since latest fw..

Does 20Mhz, WPA2/TPIK Only work?
If you temporarily turn OFF Security, do they connect as a test?

v1.37 is the latest and it fixes some SamSung Galaxy cell phone WiFi issues that were seen. If you are not exhibiting any of this or have a Samsung Galaxy phone using WiFi on this router, it's recommended that if your router is working well for you. Keep whats loaded.

I also seem to see some poor and intermittent connections on the IPAD and Iphone after updating my A4's firmware to this release.  I actually went back to 1.36 thinking that when they adjusted for Samsung that maybe they had caused an issue, but I seem to see this behavior with 1.36 too.  I updated from 1.33 because I was seeing some wireless restarts, figured it was worth a shot.

Is there a list of recommended settings for the DIR-655 that are stable, proven, least trouble-free, rather than just "for testing"?  I'be been using this router for 3+ years now and I don't like to "guess" when I tinker.

You can try, but you'll get the same result. New firmware is **, no matter the settings you make in your router. Until new one comes out I don't use wifi on my cell phone.

Post by: FurryNutz on January 24, 2014, 06:51:42 AM
Does the uVerse modem have WiFi enabled on it at the same time as the 655? It's recommended to either disable the WiFi on the modem or ensure what you are using a different channel between the modem and 655 router. Placement of the modem and 655 router should be as far away from each other as possible.

I recommend keeping the current FW version on the 655 until you can identify what is wrong with your set up. Everything was working until you changed the modem out. FW upgrade may not resolve anything.

As a WiFi upgrade suggestion if you wanted to keep the DIR-655 as the main host router, you could turn OFF the Wifi on the 655 and connect this:

Some times on my Iphone 5 i cannot see the "Airplay logo". And on my Ipad 2 i can not see the "Airplay logo" at all. Can this be firmware related, due upgrading to 1.37?

Is it possible to downgrade to see if this fixes the issue?

Good morning,
I recently updated the FW on our RevA DIR-655.
After the update I hard reset the router using the button on the back panel.
Although our devices can see the network, no internet connection can be made.

I was extremely foolish; I didn't come to the forums to educate myself on updating router firmware.  This is my first router, and the first time updating firmware.
I did the update over wifi.

Of course after running into issues after the update I came here to seek knowledge, only to find out that I should not have updated over wifi.  And possibly should not have updated at all.

Have I bricked our router?  Are there any avenues to repair what I have done?

I would sincerely appreciate any help with my screw up.
Network notes:
No bridges/extenders
No hardwired computers
1 laptop
2 android phones
3 TiVo units

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Link>Welcome! (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=48135.0)

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under router.
I believe the version is A4 (can confirm when home)
  • Link>What Firmware (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=47512.0) versionwas loaded?
version 1.37NA was loaded (to the best of my memory)
  • What region are you located?
US>Missouri>Comcast

  • Was the router working before any firmware updates? What was the reason for updating FW?
Yes, it was working.  Was experiencing multiple dropouts per day.  Seemed as if the dropouts were random

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
Comcast, please forgive my network/router ignorance; I did not have specific ip addresses set up for each device on the network.  I believe it was setup for 2.4ghz only, user created ssid & password.  I *think* security was wpa(2)?/tkip
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
Comcast cable
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
User owned docsis 3, Motorola, I believe the model # is 6120
  • Is ISP Modem/Service using Dynamic or Static WAN IP addressing?
I feel pretty ignorant not knowing this answer, but I believe the correct answer is dynamic.  I have not setup specific IP address for any devices on the network to use.
  • What ISP Modem service link speeds UP and Down do you have?
Certainly ignorant on this one.  This may not be the answer you are looking for, but speed tests usually vary between 14-25mbps download, appox. 5mbps upload




I would like to sincerely apologize for my lack of preparation of this task.  And to thank you for helping me with this issue.  It's people like me (not educating myself first) that must be frustrating to help.  I most certainly have learned my lesson.

Again, sincere thanks for taking the time with me.

Can you get to the routers web page?

I'd try a factory reset on the router, use IE or FF with any security add-ons disabled and reload the FW file again using a hard wired connected PC, factory reset once again and then set up.

Please follow this for doing any FW updates:
FW Update Process (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=42457.0)

Power off the ISP modem for 15 seconds then back ON when you do the last factory reset on the router.

Check the Internet connection on the router under Status/Device Info. The WAN section should be filled in with IP addresses. Test a web page for Internet connection on the wired PC. Then test a wireless device.
