Getting Started: Xtreme N Gigabit Router (DIR-655)


D-Link’s Xtreme N
Gigabit Router Also known as the DIR-655
Let’s see what comes in the box As usual, a cd
and product documentation The DIR-655 wireless router
an ethernet cable 3 detachable antennas
We’ll assemble these in a moment A stand that allows you to set
the router upright A power adapter
and optional mounting pieces Now we’ll put the pieces together
remove the router out of the plastic wrapping and remove the plastic
film covering the router Grab your 3 antennas and screw all three
into the back of the router If you’d like to use the router standing up
fold down the antennas because the antennas should always be pointing up
and place the router into the stand let’s get a closer
look at the router On the front are the power
and network activity LEDS On the side is the WPS button
for easy configuration of devices Four LAN ports and one
internet port, USB SharePort reset button and power Of course you have the
three antenna connectors Alright, let’s power up the router Somewhere near your modem,
Connect the ethernet cable directly from your modem
to the port labeled “internet” Plug the power from the wall
to the back of the DIR-655 When all the lights on the front
turn blue, you’re ready to use the DIR-655 Now that the router is properly setup
we recommend taking an additional few minutes to set up some simple security. Open a web browser and log into the router by typing 192.168.0.1 in the address bar. Leave the password blank for the default After logging in click on Setup
On the left side navigation, click Wireless Settings
and down at the bottom click on Manual Wireless Connection Setup Click on Enable Wireless
to start broadcasting a wireless signal and I’m going to change
the Network Name or SSID You can change the name to personalize your
setup and to distinguish it from other DLink Products we’re also interested in is
Wireless Security Mode From the drop down select
WPA-personal You can leave the WPA settings as their defaults,
but You will need to create a pre-shared key
This can be any 8 or longer password using letters and/or numbers. It’s best to write this password down somewhere
for safe keeping because you will need it when connecting any wireless devices Up top, click save settings and you are finished. Allow the setting to take effect Click on your wireless settings
Select the or DIR-655 Click on connect and when prompted
enter the security key, Click ok Congratulations, Your new DIR-655
