D-Link DIR-655 :: Dropping Signal On Laptop And Poor Gaming Performance?
May 16, 2013
A few days ago I received my DIR-655 I ordered off Amazon and hooked it up. There were no problems the first day after initial setup. The next day I noticed that I was losing internet connection even though the wifi indicator on my laptop said otherwise. This happens for about 5 minutes at a time and on other devices such as my desktop and my iPad. And I hopped on Call of Duty last night and played a competition with some friends and gave everyone 4bar connection. Later that night, I was playing some more and people that connected to me received 1bar connection and I got that in return on their connection. I feel that the router isn't working with my devices right?
I replaced a Dir-655 at a coffee shop, with a new dir-655 a few weeks ago. They keep calling and saying that Windows clients are not working and that Mac clients do.My first thought is that they are overloading the router but I would think that all computers would have problems not just the Windows computers. could the router be so bogged down that it takes to long for DHCP request for windows computers assigning the IP twice?
I bought a DIR-655 a less than a year ago on amazon, and it was working great up until about 4 weeks ago. Ive noticed that it has been dropping alot of packets while I am gaming on my computer. I would run about 95-98 ping usually and now it jitters every 5-10 mins or so from 95-98 to up to 500. It is really troublesome during games and I dont know what to do. Ive tried disabling QoS and still nothing. I run on wireless G and N with auto 20/40 mhz. Standard WPA(personal) and it was running absolutely great until now. I know its the wireless because I have hardwired it into my laptop, both from the router and just the modem itself with no problems whatsoever. I dont know what to do about it.
I have a D-Link DWA 510 and it's been perfectly fine, no hassles. Until about a week ago. Since then, not a lot has changed in my computer except for a new PSU/CPU and Keyboard and Mouse. Nothing has changed about the router, it's just the card that's messing up.
What I've tried: Reinstalling the drivers Updating Rolling Back Changing PCI card position
I'm up for trying many things. I just want some reliability until Saturday/Sunday when I buy my new card.
Region : Denmark Model : TL-WDR4300 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 3.13.23 Build 121225 Rel.37950n ISP : Fullrate
No matter what I try, the signal strength never gets better that 30%, even when I have my laptop next to the router. I have tried various settings (found in these forums), but nothing seem to work. My old D-Link performed better, both close and over distances.
I have an older Inspiron 8200 with XP I'm trying to fix up. I added an internal 802.11g card and it connects to my wireless network just fine. For some reason the connection only stays open for about 10 minutes or less and then it disconnects. If I try to reconnect to my network it works, and then the same thing happens again.
It doesn't do this when I plug it into a wired LAN. It does do the same thing when I try to use a wireless USB or PC card adapter.
why it keeps dropping the connection? And why it won't automatically re-connect? The laptop is very near to my router so I know I'm getting a good signal. Other laptops work fine with the router.
I run my virgin broadband through an old NTL modem and a Belkin router. I haveit all attached to a computer in my study along with a new 6TB Buffalo Nas drive. The computer has GIGABIT LAN. I use Belkin powerline units to relay the network around the house. In my lounge i have a blu ray player, AV amp and my sky box attached to the network via the Belkin powerline units and all run ok. This week i have added a Cambridge audio streamer but i am suffering now from a lot of dropouts and network failures escpecially when trying to stream music from my NAS. all seem to be set up correctly as per the manuals. I have spent a lot on this unit specificallly to stream my music so this is really important to get working correctly The powerline units can flash blue (fast ) or orange (slower) but i only see the orange light .My local dealer says i need to upgrade my Modem/Router and has suggested an ASUS RT-N66U which I understand is a modern 2.5/5ghz model . he says my system is overloaded
A few questions.
Is this a suitable modem for me to use on my Virgin cable broadband? (apparently there are two alternatives types of modem/router) Is there a better alternative unit ? Could there be another cause for my problems and if so how do i diagnose them ?
having a very strange problem with a Cisco 1861 running - Cisco IOS Software, C1861 Software (C1861-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), Version 12.4(24)T5
The issue -I have suddenly started to get performance issues with downloads and access through the ZBF. Without the firewall enabled and just having NAT enabled and routing , downloads perform as expected - ( have been using Itunes download as test file ) - with the ZBF enabled , and the necessary rules installed to inspect & allow traffic - downloads stall - and the only way to get the downlaod to start again is to pause , then resume. The stalls are anything between the first 25 - 120 secs.
I have debugged and performed packet traces - but cant see anything untoward. I have also placed another router ( just a cheap Belkin ) on the ADSL service and again , the downloads work as expected.
one further thing to add is that when im tunneling through the firewall ( VPN ) , then downloads do work as expected - suggesting that the issue is with native HTTP(s) traffic.
I have upgraded from T4 to T5 - and the symptons still remain - I am thinking that these may have been introduced when i upgraded to T4 a few monthes ago.
I recently purchased an EA4500. It started out working really well, but recently I noticed that my speed on my iPhone and iPad has dropped significantly. When I'm in my office where the router is set up, I'm getting around 15 to 20 mb download speed and 5+ upload speed. When I go to my living room about 40 feet away my speed drops to 1mb down and less than 1 up. I expect to see a drop in my performance the further away I get from the router, but this seems really unacceptable to me.
The wireless connection barely registers in the Speed Test within Cisco Connect - .56 download, 5.35 upload. A cable connection gives 2.4 download and 5.5 upload. The E900 is not far from the computer with no obstacles between.Is the wireless portion of the E900 set up improperly? Is there anything I can do to improve the wireless performance?
We use MS RRAS services behind a Cisco ASA 5520. In testing the performance I have found that we can only get a little over 2MB of througput when connected to the VPN server over a broadband connection. I have verified that the issue is not the RRAS server itself as I can connect to VPN from the LAN and the througput tests at 300-400MB. I also connected to the LAN directly on the outside of the firewall and only get 4 or 5 MB from there which does not seem right. None of the switches are showing any errors. I believe that I have the passthrough stuff setup as I should. I even went through these steps as recommended by Cisco.

I am using 2 WAP4410N in bridge mode with WPA2 Security.The bridge seems to be stable but i get poor transfer rates.Distance between devices ~ 8m - nothing between.Wireless networkmode: N-Only, Channel: Auto, Channel Bandwitdh: 40MHz (also tried auto and 20MHz)Firmware 18.104.22.168 because got different problems with 22.214.171.124One side is connected to my LAN other is connected to a notebook.
I have a Catalyst 4006 with Supervisor II engine. I have 48 port 10/100/1000 blades installed in it for connection to my servers. I am having a lot of problems with performance when connecting servers that are using 100 MB NICs. The speed of the connection is really bad. I have attempted setting the ports and NICs to 100MB Full duplex instead of auto-detect, but still get the same results.
I also have a 10/100 quad-port card installed in a NetApp filer. All four ports are trunked together and connect to 4 ports in the Catalyst. The ports in the Catalyst are trunked using the Port Channel feature of the CatOS. When I look at the port statistics on 3 of the 4 ports from the quad-card, there are a ton of runts and errors (both transmit and receive). The 4th port is fine, no errors.
I have 2 RV042 routers with identical firmware (1.3.13.02-tm) and settings. One router is a backup that sits in a box, but both experience this problem. The WAN port gives very poor performance most of the time. Download speeds range from normal, 25mb, to less than .5mb. Pings from my command prompt or the routers "Diagnostic" page, even to the cable modem, are almost always above 500ms. However, pings to internal resources are fast, usually under 5ms. If I connect my laptop directly to the cable modem I have no speed issues. The problem occurs whether I use WAN1 or WAN2.
If I restart the router, speeds are fine for a few seconds and then it begins to slow down like someone is turning down a dial. We also regularly experience a complete internet disconnect quite often, and when it happens, the ping results are the same when it comes back up, almost like the router is restarting itself. [code]
We have two Cisco AP541N running our wireless network in the office. They're configured with the same SSID, so that people are automatically switched between the two access points depending on their location in the office.
Frequently we are experiencing very poor performance of our wireless connections and it seems to be related to when 4-5 clients are connected to one access point. After restarting it (which also moves the 5 clients to the other access point), the performance problem goes away for a while.
I've upgraded one to firmware version AP541N-K9-2.0(1) (the other is running AP541N-K9-1.8(0)), but it doesn't seem to work.
I have EA4500 acting as a router on domainless all-Windows network of two XP machines.Unfortunately, EA4500 aggressively grabs the role of the Master Browser (I am talking about Computer Browser Service) on the network (regardless in which order you power the devices up) and then doesn't serve as a working Master Browser - both Windows machines stop listing the network computers in the "Network Neighborhood" and incur massive timeouts when attempting to view the listing.A quick look with 'browstat.exe status' reveals that indeed the router has announced itself as a Master Browser device, but returns errors when you query it.Quite predictably, without the router, both machinces figure out amongst each other who will be the Master Browser and everything works fine. The problems begin only when you add the router to the network.
1) Is there any way to make EA4500 work like a full-blown Master Browser (the one that not only announces itself, but also serves as such)? having a Master Browser integrated in "always-on" router would really improve the predictability of the network.
2) If not, is there any way to disable the Master Browser on EA4500? For now I managed to achieve that by assigning the router to different workgroup name, but this is lame, as I now can't connect a disk storage to the router and use it within the same workgroup.
I have D-Link Amplifi N+600 Dual Band wireless router (Model: DIR-827) that was purchased a couple of months ago. I live in a house with a bunch of other university students so I would estimate we have about 18 devices that connect to the router such as laptops, mobile phones, and gaming systems. Every few hours our wireless router will just stop working and drop everyone's connection including the connection to the wired Ethernet ports. The light which is normally green on the front of the router turns yellow and will stay that way until the router is reset. The network still shows up on all the devices with full signal bars but no access.
I have a D-Link DIR-655 version B1 Just installed firmware 2.03 Use a cable modem (Comcast) Motorola SURFboard model SB6120 Am trying to use Netgear 85Mbps Wall-Plugged Ethernet Adapter XET1001 to carry signal from the room where the cable modem is to another part of the house where I hope to connect the D-Link.
We have a remote site connected to ADSL line with a Cisco 887VA router attached. This has been working fine for the last couple of months. However, recently, the site have started to complain of performance issues (network slow, applications disconnecting, etc)Looking on the router, we can see evidence of packet loss/timeouts from a simple ping to the internet e.g. [code]
However, we have logged the fault with our service provider and they return all line tests as clear but what is particularly strange is that they also report “and the SNR Margins are well within threshold levels (Upstream 11.5 and Downstream 15.0)” which, unless I’m misunderstanding something, seems to be completely different from what the router itself is reporting.Is there a reason why the service provider’s stats for Noise Margin would appear to be so different from what the router is reporting?
Im getting really poor performance on my 1841, my intial thoughts was a duplex mismatch however although im getting a few CRC errors (root cause unknown at this point) not enough to suggest that the this is the issue.

i get a bunch of lag when i play counterstrike, etc. In game, my ping is always tripling other players'. I know it isnt my computer because it is basically amazing. Im pretty sure it is my wifi because i'm in the top floor of my house and my router is in the basement. I'm using a usb wireless card. What can i do to get a better signal.
went to set up ps3 and see that the wifi signal is particularly bad (30%) for online.There is no possible way of getting the router near the ps3.I am think that a pair of tp-link powerlines may play a role here, but may be mistaken. What are peoples experiences. would something like that increase ps3 signal? would 200mbps or 500mbps be better (they do diffferent models). I understand that it would make the connection for the ps3 wired, but am I right in thinking the laptop would just operate over wifi as it does already?
Am running WIN 7 64 BIT and have today installed a BT Home Hub 3. WiFi signal is very poor. (1 1/2 bars only) Have Belkin Wireless G Card in computer and previously used it with Netgear DG834G router with very good signal strength.Do I now need to disable the Belkin card in order for the BT Hub to produce a decent signal?
I have a wireless router on the ground floor of my home which is wired to my PC on the 3rd floor. The wifi signal is of poor quality on the 3rd floor. I cannot move the router to a different floor since all of my connections are wired through the home into my networking room (on the ground floor where my router is). I wish to add a media receiver to a different room on the 3rd floor that is not wired already for networking. Streaming video files wirelessly to the media receiver from my router will not work because as stated previously the signal quality is poor on the 3rd floor. My mobo on my computer has ASUS wifi GO. Can I enable the wifi go on the mobo of my PC (located on 3rd floor) to connect to the media receiver (also on the 3rd floor) for streaming? The media receiver will also have an internet browser so will I be able to connect to the internet as well if it is networked to my PC and my PC is connected to my router on the ground floor?
I basically want to keep my PC connected to my main router for high DL speeds and also have my PC networked wirelessly to my media receiver using the on board wifi go. If possible I'd also like to be able to access the internet on the media receiver via the PC.
I have purchased two WAP200 units to act as access point and repeater. AP and repeater functionality works fine.
The issue I am having is extremely poor signal from both units. Even when very close to the WAP200, I get poor signal quality. The range before loosing connection is only a few feet.
I'm using the antennas that came with the box and have tried multiple placements both in my house and in other locations. I have also tried changing several of the configurations without any effect on the signal strength. Older D-link and Linksys routers provide good reception to most of my house from the same location.
We have several of the SG300 Serices switches. We use them to route VLAN traffic to Remote Offices, Internet Connections, and WiFi Access Points.In one remote office we have a SG300-10 setup to route the HQ Network and the remote Office Subnet. The SG300 is Connected to HQ via Fiber and has multiple Tagged VLANs on it. If I do speed tests over the Fiber Link on the Incoming Tagged Netwotk I get Decent performance, 80Mbs. If I switch to a networtk that is not priginating from HQ, and have the SG300-10 route packet, I get dismal performance. 15-20Mbs.
I Fireded up a New SG300-28P FW v126.96.36.199. Added a the HQ VLAN 101 and new VLAN 1025 . Mapped some Tagged and untagged ports for each. Switch was connected to HQ Network as untagged VLAN 101. I put a laptop on an Untagged VLAN 101 port. Ran some tests, cam back with 750-850Mbs. Great. Put the same laptop on a Tagged 101 Port, Configured the NIC for Tagged VLAN 101, Same test, same Speeds, 750-850Mbs.I then Configured laptop for Tagged VLAN 1025. Connected to tagged VLAN 1025 port. Ran speed tests, resuts were 15-20Mbs!
I then Configured laptop for Untagged VLAN 1025. Connected to unagged VLAN 1025 port. Ran speed tests, resuts were 15-20Mbs!It was only the Laptop and the Connection to the HQ net on the SG300-28P. Why is the performance of this unit soooooo poor when it needs to route?Other Switches have FW v188.8.131.52 or FW v184.108.40.206. They have Similar speed issues. All Configured for Layer 3.
I have a linksys router WAG 120n and when using wireless if I move into the next room the signal strength goes down to 40% there is only one single wall in between the room and the router. I have upgraded the firmware to the latest version turned off other electrical devices changed the wireless channels but none of this has worked. Any more settings I can try to get the signal stronger, I really don't want to return the router unless completely necessary.
I am having poor performance through an IPSec VPN between two Cisco ASA 5505s. In researching, I found some discussion about setting the MTU for the VPN. So from one side of the VPN tunnel, I tried pinging a host on the other side specifying the Don't Fragment flag and testing different packet sizes. I found that a size of 1398 is the largest packet size that results in a successful ping.So, I also understand that I should be able to set the MTU to 1426 (1398 + 28 bytes for the IP and ICMP headers). What I'm not 100% clear on is where all I need to set this. Do I set the MTU for the outside interface of the ASA that the VPN tunnel is going through, or do I also need to set the MTU for the inside interface, or on the outside interface and the switch port that the interface is connected to (switch port is set to an MTU of 1500 as well)?My thoughts are that only the outside interface of each ASA needs the lower MTU (currently set at the default of 1500).
I live in a block of flats I decided to buy a proper router on 5GHz. I can see at least 12 wireless networks and all of them on 2.4GHz(mostly BT HomeHubs or other UK ISP wireless boxes). I study CCNA and our teachers recommend cisco routers(linksys) as the best ones. I bought a WAG320N as the best one I could find in the UK market for a fair price. The problem is, that I have less signal on 5GHz than on 2.4GHz. I have maximum 50% of signal on 5GHz and speed is usually below 802.11g, means below 64Mbps! I can't believe it. When I change it to 2.4GHz the signal has up to 80% like my old router TP-Link. The speed is mostly up to 65Mbps, means terrible. I have seen lots of topics about this particular router but I couldn't believe that Cisco sell such awful and unreliable products like this router. I have tried to change the channels on 5 and 2.4GHz but it's always the same, poor speed and low signal. My wireless card is Intel WifiLink 6200 Advanced -N and operating systems Windows 7 and Sabayon linux. I have a laptop and it is cca 6 metres from the router and there are 2 walls. The router is still under warranty so I won't hesitate to return it back to PCWorld.
