DIR-655 with NetGear Modem - cant see SSID
« on: February 29, 2020, 11:16:57 AM »

I'm running a peer-to-peer network using DL DIR-655 linked to Netgear Modem (provided by ATT).
The main WiFi is working fine and is the SSID is visible by WiFi devices.
I setup the DL Guest Zone, but the SSID is not visible.
What else do I need to do to see the SSID?
The NetGear Modem is setup to be both modem and router. I tried turning off the router but then Internet access went away.
I've searched for literally hours and cannot find the right answer online or here. What am I missing?
Thanks in advance.

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?
  • Has a Factory Reset been performed?



Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
  • If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Disable ALL WiFi radios on the modem. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.
