Hi, Just recently bought the dlink 655 router when our linksys router won't work anymore. Before, we just connected the internet to the router and its easy access to the Internet via wifi from windows, macs, to iphones, cellphones, etc. Very easy!
I'm the only mac user in the house while the rest of the family are using windows. With the dlink 655, it's been problems right from the start. Connected the internet to the router and the first time, the internet worked fine until I restarted my mac and for some reason, the Internet won't work anymore. Same with my brother's laptop (Windows XP). We have to restart the router. Sometimes, my mac can connect to the internet, but my brothers won't be able to connect. Other times, I can connect and they can't. So it's hard to keep restarting the router because one of us usually ends up with no internet!
On my mac, the Internet would work but if I restart my mac or let it sleep, the IP address would be different and I won't be able to connect again. Right now, I'm currently using BootP on my mac instead of DHCP just so I can connect to the Internet. Same with the iphone's wifi settings using bootP. (Not really sure what these are but I've tried all the settings and BootP worked)
How can we setup the router that all of us can have access to the internet? Please help! I'm getting really frustrated with the router. Thanks!
