Misunderstanding again Eddie. ;)
The ******* is a single stand wireless access point.
It is like ripping out the radio in the dir-655 and replace with *******-radio.
Noticed it is a lot faster, speedier respons with the *******.



Hear hear, I can get it wrong too  ;D

Day 2 with *******. Still perfect.
I noticed it is a lot more response/faster than the DIR655.
It is a remarkable difference, but I guess for 3 times the cost of a DIR655 costs there should be a significant difference.
Bear in mind reader that the ******* is just sole radio-access-point hooked up to the DIR655.
On the DIR655 the useless radio is set to "off" so the ******* is the DIR655īs radio.
An expensive solution, but so far working better than expected.

Not really a comparison looking at the threefold price. This is like comparing a Fiat 500 with a BMW 330i. But great to see you found some kind of solution.

I rather pay for something working than buying something that give this much pain and stealing so much time.
If I calculate on spent hours of troubleshooting the DIR-655, I could probably get 5 *******s for free.
Not to mention when we for instance pay bills and all transactions went lost because the DIR655 disconnects for any of those countless times it does.
The DIR655 was my last DLINK-product.
Well well, whilst writing this..guess what happend! An alert that the PECE is disconnected..
disassociated it says in the logg..hmmmm (thinking) is it possible that the PECE sends something
that is messes up the wifi..
I shall try to do a complete new XP-install, but first see if the MAc-cpu is disconnected.
The MAC is connected, it is the PECE...
Hmm. I might be on something here.
In the PECE..settiings and power management, I have set it to never go to sleep, everyting always on.
In the BIOS I found:
Standby Timeout: 16 minutes
Auto suspend timeout : 60 minutes:
Hard Disk timeout: 15 min
Now..if I in Power management set it to be always on, how come the BIOS says something different?
Oh man..there are  lightyears between Apple and Microsucks..
this might be a casue..or the cause..part of..however the ******* never went down, the MAC was OK, but if the BIOS does something else that set in Power management it goes to sleep and does not wake up on WLAN..maybe..this is a ball to play EddieZ
Now..how do I wipe a disk in PECE?..No idea..On a MAC just insert the install CD, choose "tools" thats it..
No such on WIN XP-install CD..

If you are running XP, and you have the original Windows disk, set your computer to boot from CD drive, then put in the Windows CD & restart. You will get your option to Format the drive as part of the re-install...
Of course, this takes you back to the point that XP was when the disk was created, so lots of Windows updates to get!  ::)

I fixed it Eddie. Seems now as the PECE with the changes in the BIOS is keeping the PECE online.
So the settings/power options in controlpanel is not affecting the BIOS..
With other words, the power option in the controlpanel is just nothing.
The power settings must be done in the BIOS.
You are like a salmon Eddie! Going against the streem, switch from OS X to PECE (yak!)
Well, I have a friend expert om computers. he installed OS X in a fast PECE,
much cheaper than an expensive MAC PRO.
Best of 2 worlds.

Something I wrote upset DLINK, a person Lycan who deleted something I wrote.
Lycan if you read this (before you delete it) DLINK has a very bad reputation.
Is it not time to do something about that rather than deleting posts from someone like me really trying to help frustrated people out?
That is more you can say about DLINK.
Googe "DLINK-DIR655 drops signal" (or similar) and you get plenty (PLENTY) of hits.
How come Lycan (at DLINK) we customers have to fight with your not working products, and no help at all from DLINK than deleted posts?
I wrote how I solved it, after struggeling with your DIR655 to the bitter end.
The DIR-655 won, I could not find any solution..and zero support, like so many other DLINK customers.
The permant fix was to turn off the radio in the DIR-655, buy a ******* WIRELESS ACCESS POINT, hook it up to the DIR-655.
(Like taking out the radio in the DIR-655 and install a ******* radio) and this works!
OK, the ******* costs 3 times as much as the DLINK, but the time I spent fixing the DIR655 is much more expensive.
And DLINK/ Lycan..this solution works,,the ******* radio works, not yours..well delete this now, I understand  it is major loss fror DLINK towards *******, but try to help your buyers out with better products and support instead of deleting posts, like this one.
Kindest regards

Today a really wierd thing happend.
As you know I disabled the WIFI (radio) in the DIR655 and bought a ****** Wireless access point.
This works perfect.
So today I started to notice that the ******* has some problems with the stability.
The reason was that DIR655 somehow by itself turned on the radio! (WIFI) and that inteferred with the *******.
Something for Ghostbusters?!

My ******* WLAN is working excellent! ;D
Now another problem. Trying in the DIR-655 to add a port.
When pressing SAVE CHANGES, it does not save it.. Trying to look for a newer firmware for EU, but take a look at a DLINK EU homepage, I have never ever seen anything so messy in my life, not even when WWW started..
Take a look at DLINK UK for example:
http://www.dlink.co.uk/cs/Satellite?c=Page&childpagename=DLinkEurope-GB/DLGlobalLandingDetail&cid=1197318962104&p=1197318962104&pagename=DLinkEurope-GB/DLWrapper
Where to find support/download there?

Poker,
I'm glad you found a work-around. If our products are not meeting you're expectations, please let us know. We are a large company and unfortunatly slow to move. When a fix is needed, it takes time because of all the parts involved.
