a very sad day.
After a very vey long time, i am back on square one.
The DIR-655 now has no signal out at all, it comes and goes weak one, but to no use.
Shutdown the only pece, but the steady mac could not pick up the signal.
Then I tried to shut down the MAC to see of the pece could pick up the signal, just incase there is some interference, but no.
This just happend, after so long time with a rock solid signal, and no tampering whatsoever with settings or changes.
 :'(

The log says wireless restart, so it is square one now.

I think it might have died on you. Perhaps you can RMA it.

not a bad hunch eddieZ, warranty is overdue, and buy another DlINK, nej, njet, no.
Strange, it acts again as when it first started to to give me headache, and our "repairs" did make it works so good for so very long, canīt figure this out.
WZC again perhaps?, some update that did something?

Been thinking of that Eddie, perhaps WZC thru one of those Windows frantic updates did something.?
Glad we have this thread alive, need to roll back in it to see what we did, turned it off if can recall, somehow?

Nope, WZC still disabled, as it shall be.
Some new WIFI networks has popped up recently, wonder if that can interfere. Should not.

Could be on the same channel. If someone uses an illegal booster or AP (>100 mW) they can disrupt all surrounding signals. In my country (NL) you officially would need a broadcasting license for a device > 100 mW...but I can buy them easily (Senao) when I promise not to use it here  8)

Would not surprise me if you are right as usual Eddie.
BTW, NL got some superior K1 fighters! Congratulations!
Most NL fighters at the top 5.
We got Volvos..we had SAAB, history now, Stenmark and Bjorn Borg.. ;D

It's hard to figure out if it is true, but I would not be surprised that this occurs quite a lot.
I had a Volvo once, a 440GL "Swedish tank" in camouflage green.  ;)

Don't forget to mention Tommy Gustafson, the speed skater

A green Volvo 440GL, a true "tank".
Mounted those boost-antennas Eddie, talk about improved signal!
No need for viagra there!
So far the signal is excellent, lets give them a week or so and see what happends.

of cource!

Mybe other people has use for the link aswell.
Noticed one really big improvement.
I now have  constant 300mbps, no channel search and again a rock solid signal,
and when I use RDC (Remote desktop control) it connects twice as fast now.
To the DIR655 I bought 3 antennas, but a friend of mine borrowed one, I am only using 2 antennas, mounted them on the upper 2 antennas.
I do recommend these antennas.
Eddie, have you seen we are #2 on most wieved posts here?

Thanks for the link. Seems a good suggestion to get some antennas. Let you know what it does for me, still aiming for 100% connection strength

#2 on the most viewed list is great  8). I think your title was a great one, marketing wise  :D

It also seems I'm the only "Ridiculous  Member" and still happy with the applaud/smite ratio  ;)

Edit: Just ordered three 9dbi RP-SMA 2.4 GHz Omni-Directional WLAN Antenna (one with magnetic for foot) for €50 incl delivery. That's cheap...  :D
