(A) Possible solution for the signal drop outs
« on: November 30, 2008, 03:47:11 PM »

As most people with this piece of junk :-[ I lost the signal aswell quite often, once a day.
So frustrating..
I disabled UPnP (at ADVANCED, ADVANCED NETWORK)
Been rock solid for 4 days now.

Could very well be an app on your PC then that causes it...

Triggers it, maybe, but a UPNP app shouldn't cause a signal loss except intentionally.

Still no signal drop-outs. Steady, strong signal. It has never been this rock-solid since I turned UPnP off.
An app that "talks" to UPnP so it does something with the DIR-655?
Well, eather that, or UPnP itself when activated goes nuts, but right, it should not affect, but obviously, it does.
Anyways DLINK-staff, here is the cause off these d*rn signal drop-outs so many is fighting with and is making life miserable. Speed up a new firmware please..

My best bet is there is either an anomaly in your network or the device is defective.

Which firmware (try flashing again)? Network: Double NATting (router and modem), double DHCP (idem...)? Other specific settings on modem, does the modem log show strange traffic??

Hi EddieZ.
Latest Firmware, and no special settings or configs with it.
I  have the same trouble with this as so many others, WIFI comes and goes.
My hunch was that the UPnP somehow restarted the WIFI, that why I disabled it. It helped, but not 100% since it "died" yesterday again. But with UPnP it died atleast once a day. now it was up for several days, so a small step forward.

Maybe I should add that I trashed a LINKSYS WGS of the same reason, WIFI up and down..
Bought the DIR-655, same headache, come to think of that now..

Try RMA it. Malfunctioning products do occur once in a while, regardless of the brand.

hi EddieZ. I appriciate your effort, but my life is to short for toys.
DLINK should be sold at Toys4us.
I will trash this into the woods.
So many people says the same about DLINK.
It is stone dead now, no matter what I do. No WIFI at all.
Tried it all...and I paid for this...crap..
Oh..it came alive again..Ghostbusters?
It has its own life, signal comes and goes..I have a wireless cpu 1 meter away from the DIR655, I could have a cable at the distance, so much for the wifi..
DLINK should have label on their stuff:
" WIFI will expire if you leave the room where the DIR655 is located".
I had the same sh*t with Elgato. After a struggle they admit " well..there is a small problem with the Turbo"
Small problem!! it did not work! Now they upgraded the firmware. I´ll be honest and frank EddieZ. I have worked with US companies. It is all about the money, regardless what. Putting a product on the market, not ready, does not matter, sell..and sell, and you and me get the headache and a hole in the wallet.
Nope. I stick now to EU products, I dunno if the moral is better, but atleast I can bark at them a closer distance. I sometimes pays them a visit, selling me crap things..I know my nuts and bolts, not an entirely IT-invalid, so I now when a product is crap. DLINK is...avoid..avoid avoid..My DLINK is fairly new...aarrrgh..
=)

My router works without flaws. Sorry to hear yours doesn't. But remember that wireless connectivity entails more than only the router. Too easy to put the blame on the product because others are having issues of some kind because we just can't see how much knowledge they really have. And unfortunately you still need some basic knowledge to set up a device and even more to solve issues. And defects can still occur.

Look through the forum and you will find a lot of tips on how to optimize the connectivity.
Is it D-links fault that neighbouring networks (or other interfering devices like DECT or microwave)  transmit on the same channels? Just try different channels manually, check positioning (heavy concrete walls kille every signal) and not unimportant: fiddle around with the antenna's. When one antenna covers the signal pattern of the other they will conflict heavily...
In your case there really seems to be an anomaly in the network or the router is just broken. You might even wanna try reflashing. Sometimes bits can do strange things.

But if it's really broken....s**t happens, even with a Roll Royce.

Ha-haaa.so right. I have a porsche, Mercedes, and BMW, Them MB is the worst, Porsche second, the BMW
seems to unbreakable.

Sitting with a laptor right besides the DIR655, signal comes and goes, just as many describes.
Another laptop the DIR655 "talks" to 2 levels down (use to) can not picked up now by the DIR 655.

Buying something else, looking, tought I go for quality, money not a problem, found something around
10.000€ OK.company pays.why not..that must work..it is a dlink!..noway!
D-Link 24-Portar Switch DWS-3024 10/100/1000 (Wireless)   90789 SEK (about 10.000€)
No..this toy is back to environment, maybe in next life it will be something that works..
My life is way to short to stuggle with this.
EddieZ..before this  I bought Belkin N1 vision.
That rascal did not even work with lan-cables!
I called first friend. a LAN teacher at IBM..
He´s answer. crazy, replace it. I did.
Same thing, no go with lan cables.
Called the engineers at IT at one of our Swedes cell-phones-companies.
he said: replace the Belkin, did so,,
same thing, no go.
Then Belkin confess.."well..hrmm..it might not work all the time, the N1 vision, a small problem still"
A new  firmware is coming..wait..WAIT! I need tho have things up and running.Now!

IMHO..I think all the WIFI stuff has some kind of problem the manufacturers are aware about, but they put their crap on the market just for the money, no matter what.
Now, because of me, Belkin has to write that the N1 is not working all the time..(here in Sweden)
DLINK is next to the confession stand..
But they have to be dragged there.."Oh..have you pulled our pants down, ?! yes we surrender,, we sold a not perfect thing, but we did get your money!"
It is just a reversed way of shoplifting EddieZ and DLINK has the highest scores about reversed shoplifting = selling crap to customers.
Just  google " DIR655 looses signal" or similar."Drops" dies"..
Anyways. you been a good buddie EddieZ, appriciated, but DLINK is for me is history, for ever, sayonara, arrividerci, adios, "dra åt helvete" (last is swedish)  in good ol english f*ck of dlink.
I could tell you another story about Raymarine and GPS 120 and crap stuff.
My nick is "Ljungbergarn", look here:
http://my.boatus.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=63086&PN=1&get=last
Raymarine sold a defect product, just as Dlink, they did not even replace even that it has warranty..
" not every one is defect" mine is! " can you proof that?" says Raymarine..some a*holes.We where many buying this defect out-of-the-factory-gps antennas from RayM.
I take crap stuff to the limit with the manufacturers, if they sell sh*t, they have come to the wrong guy.

Well, I can you stories about my previous 5-series. Unbreakable...not. Anyway the one model is still flawless. But who knows... 8)


I haven been using Linksys, Asus and now D-link for about 8-9 years now. I think we are all very opportunistic in believing that wireless is as reliable as water from the tap. Well, we both know this is not the case. And when you know IT, you know that everything can (and will) fail. That's why they invented redundancy :-)

And you can only constitute a bad product if you get a fix on the number of pure product related failures, opposed to the number of sold devices...scientifically that is, since you will find only people with issues/problesm on the net.; why post on the net if the router works OK? So saying "see how many problems on the net" is not really valid.

Good luck finding a solution that works (at the same price ofcourse otherwise it will be comparing apples and pears)

Hi again EddieZ.
I was watching a network monitor tool.
This is so wired!
The DIR655 is set to DHCP IP range 192.168.100 to 192.168.1.199
Sitting with the laptop, with the monitor tool, the IP changed from 192.168.1.117 to....
169.254.240.50
But I still have (now) a strong signal...
Trying to renew the IP, stuck at 169.254.240.50.
Where the heck that 169.254.240.50 come from?
Life sucks, and then you marry one who doesn´t.. ;D
