D-Link DIR-655 :: Network Crashing After Adding Kindle Fire To The Mix?
Feb 11, 2012
I just acquired a Kindle Fire for my wife. Joined my Dir-655 network just fine. I have never done a firmware update (using 1.10) and have lived by the "if it ain't broke. " axiom. Dell laptops, Mac laptops and desktops, Wii, X-box, LG Cinema TV, Roku, iPad, multiple iPhones and iPods all connect and work fine (with the occasional (once a month) reboot of the router necessary). Using cable modem (bridge mode), no historic issues. Suddenly when the Kindle Fire is utilizing the network at the same time as one or two other devices, the network crashes, and a power down reboot is necessary. A Google search reveals a fair number of complaints about this across router brands.
My DIR-655 has worked well for 3 months; both Ethernet and wireless. Yesterday I accidentally deleted this WiFi router from my Kindle Fire list of WiFi connections. Now, when I try to re-establish Kindle wireless logon, the router will not accept the previously used password.As a non-techno-geek, I tried to find this in the DIR-655 manual. But it is written in Greek and not oriented to the wireless user. [code]
I cannot connect my Kindle Fire to my Wi-fi router.It works when I'm out and about ie it connects to the internet but never when at home. I have also tried connecting via a static IP but that also fails. When attempting to connect my Kindle Fire if I have another device already connected eg my LT or DT they also become disconnected
My mom wants to buy my dad a Kindle Fire for Christmas. Currently they have a desktop computer with a modem plugged into it and use Verizon dsl for their internet. The Kindle needs wi-fi and I don't want to disrupt the way their computer is set up now.Do I simply plug the router into the modem to get the wi-fi signal?
Kindle fire won't connect to my router WRT320N- I have the correct password- signal strength is excellent- I have set up other devices without problems- prompt reads "connection error unable to connect to access point. Please check the password you have provided."
I am trying to get my parents Kindle Fire to work. They recently purchased a Motorola Modem/Router which is hooked into the desktop and works fine. I want to get their new kindle to work and can not seem to figure it out. Their operating system is Vista which I can upgrade to Windows 7 if that would make it easier. When I click on setup the WiFi part of the installation wizard cd that came with the Motorola it says there is not a network adapter. I know what that is however I do not know why I would need it when the desktop is hooked directly into modem/router and I just need the WiFi for Kindle.
I have kindle fire that is unable to connect to the wireless network.All otehr devices windows phone, xbox and laptop are able to connect seamlessly.Amazon also sent me a replacement, but the issue is still the same. The error is:
"Unable to connect to the selected access point, Please check the password you provided."
Also, I removed the security on the network to see if its able to connect without password.The state where it fails is Obtaining IP address and it fails again.
We purchased this router 6 months ago. It has been working perfectly fine with no issues whatsoever up until two days ago when suddenly our wireless network disappeared from the available networks. We have all the updated firmware. Originally we tried setting up a new network, that worked for about 20 hours before the network crashed again. Once it had crashed that time, I was just planning to wait it out until my husband got home so he could assist me with it but before he arrived him the network mysteriously reappeared. That night it once again disappeared. The following morning it was still lost, so I reset the router to the factory settings using the button on the back, and once my computer detected it router again I once again set up a new network. That worked and my connection was fine for about 12 hours this time before it once again crashed. I brought my laptop to connect it to the internet via the cable, and after when I disconnected it to leave the room the wireless was back up again.
I just registered the DIR-655. I saw it was on sale on Newegg for around $50 w/ a $15 promotional code. I decided to purchase that, and I have had it for the past 4 days. Firmware is Version 1.32NA. Hardware version A4.Unfortunately, it has been crashing once a day (I noticed it usually crashes between a window of 4:30pm and 6:30pm if that makes any difference). What happens is that it starts to slow down my entire net. That lasts for about 5-10 minutes before my entire net crashes to the point that I can't even access my router. I have to restart the router and cable modem afterwards..
Today, after the crash, I decided to connect my own primary computer straight to the cable modem. Internet started to work while connected straight to cable modem, but it was pretty slow. I did not run a speed-test so I don't know the exact speeds it was getting.Here's how my network is setup. Before I get to it, I want to say that it is a bit messy. I am removing one of the routers (the Ativa one). Goes like this:
Motorola SB5101 Cable Modem from Comcast in the basement
I currently run everything in my house off a D-Link GL-4300 plus a couple of their green switches. If I were to replace one of these switches with an additional router (with Gigabit of course, and wireless N- preferably dual mode), could I successfully add the N capabilities, along with extending the A/B/G range?

I have a problem with this router TL-WR1043ND (i have the latest firmware version), when i try to download torrents on wireless the wireless signal crashes after a few minutes.. in order for the wireless to work again the rooter needs a reboot.The other PC, that is connected via the cable
My router keeps crashing like it is restarting. it turns off then all the lights are beginning to turn un again after some time it repeats again and again....Last thing they did was turning down the internet speed for our Network. It worked in some time but then it begun crashing again...Then they said it was the cable in the road that could not take all the data stream... And something about and Bit error?I just dont belive the cable in the road thing because our neighbour are running 10 M/bits without a single error anytime... I am not an expert but i've found out that we are running a Sagembox or something like that. The hardware version (if that is important) is: 3DK04-02 Everybody in the house is running Win7 SP.1. If you need any more information then i will try to find them.
I am on the internet, let's say browsing youtube, or play multiplayer games, sometimes my internet will crash and disconnect me, leaving that familiar yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. and that will stay there for about 1-5 minutes and then will reconnect me in. but sometimes it will just keep doing that repeatedly.I've tried to work it out myself, power cycling and everything but nothing seem to work.
This issue is on my laptop, and I am using wireless connectivity
-My isp is AOL (as long as I know) I live in Quebec and my broadband is from bell, well I think it's DSL or Cable, it uses the phone cable..
-My router is a linksys WRT54G and Modem is Speedstream 4200 ethernet/usb ASDL modem.
-I use AVG9, Malwarebytes. I am intending to switch anti-virus software but do not know which one is the best.
I expect to receive a new Kindle Touch w/WiFi next week.I presently have my RR modem plugged to the DIR-655 and one Ethernet cable from the router to the PC and another (a 40' Cat6 Ethernet cable) going from the DIR-655 to a bus and then to an Internet-ready HDTV. I'm able to watch NetFlix streaming movies.I'm wanting to know step-by-step for each setting for my DIR-655 so that I can download books via WiFi to my Kindle Touch from Amazon's library.I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64x Media Center Player?
I originally bought the 615 router because my Net Talk telephone required it. The first Wi-Fi device I used is my Kindle Touch. I have been able to use the Wi-Fi several times since I received the Kindle, but there have now been two failures to connect. The first time I just unplugged the router power and connections, restarted the modem, and rebooted my computer. The Wi-Fi then worked. Now I am experiencing a failure to connect again.
I have noticed that when I restart my computer I have to connect to the internet directly by pulling the cable from the router and putting it from the modem to the computer. This seems to teach the router what it is supposed to do, because when I reconnect the modem to the router the internet starts to work immediately.I have tried changing the password to wireless internet, but my Kindle still will no longer connect. The router is about two years old. [code]No go to the devices and check to see if you see the new SSID name you gave in the router. I should be listed there. Select it and it should ask you for a password, enter the password you gave in the router. The only problem is that my modem does not exactly say "mixed G and N".
I bought a Kindle whitepaper that uses Wi Fi. Other than going to a free wi fi location to download Amazon books, I decided to buy a router. Everything seems to be ok at the router end I believe. But when I use the wireless feature on Kindle, type in the password I assigned to the router, it always, I mean always, no matter how many times I set up, reinstall the router, and try to log into Kindle storefront using my kindle, Kindle always returns the message "Incorrect Password". Now I don't have a problem with the router. I'll keep it for future wi fi usage. I have done an installation with no password and can then go to Kindle storefront on the Kindle but that is rather insane to not have a password while I am reading books on Kindle. Why the password I assign to the router isn't working with Kindle after I reset the router (using a paper clip method) and reconfiguring with the new username and password like 5 times already? The username appears ok on the Kindle wireless, just the password doesn't work. I'd like the issue resolved before I buy more wireless products. Great router.

I just bought and installed this wireless router, specifically so that I could use me kindle..but, keep getting rejected due to a password error...the password is correct. On Amazon it looks like there may be a setting that needs adjustment in order to accept the Kindle..
I've tried restarting my Kindle. I've tried resetting my router. I've reset my Kindle. I can use it to connect to open wi-fi networks. My computer (win7) and phone (htc desire) can connect to the wi-fi network. MAC filtering is disabled. Router is a Buffalo WCR-GN

I have a BSNL BB connection. When I use the connection directly, without adding TP Link router, all the websites open flawlessly. Once when I connect the wireless router, certain websites for example Yahoomail, pepperfry.com, yepme.com don't open at all. These are just examples, but I'm unable to access many sites which is a bit annoying. But sites such as gmail, youtube, facebook open clean, there are no issues. I didn't make any configuration changes too. I tried it more than three or four times, but there is a restricted access only.
My firmware is 1.35NA and have a schedule established. When I try to add a policy for access control, I can select a policy name but when I hit "next", I get an error stating "Internet Explorer has stopped working" and wants to close. I was able to add policies previously but can not any more.
I have a Netgear ADSL2 router connected to my main computer and want to add a new Belkin AC900db via plug link at the other end of my house so that we have wireless coverage throughout the whole house. It was working at first but the belkin needed an update which I did now It won't work at all?
This is on a DIR-655, firmware 2.01NA, hardware rev B1.Is there a limit on the number of DHCP reservations that can be added to this WAP?This WAP was working fine with 10 DHCP reservations (wired & wireless devices), 6 schedules, Access control of 2 devices by MAC (6 defined, only 2-3 active at a time).I started adding additional DHCP reservations, because I'm simplifiying my network, and when I add the 26th DHCP reservation I get the message "Schedule rules is Full! Please Delete an Entry."
I've been adding all of the new DHCP reservations as disabled, but I haven't assigned any schedules or otherwise to these new devices yet. So what's up with this message??
I got myself TimeWarner Cable, rated at around 15/1 mbps. The guy came and just connected the line from my place, ran it all around my room and plugged it into a Motorola SB5100 Modem. My AV is ESETNOD32 version 5.
My problem is as follows: Before yesterday, I had DSL (1mbps) and it never crashed on me. No matter what website I went to, the connection was stable. The DSL modem had wireless and it was 100% stable too. Here I have a (new?) cable modem that gives me a connection 15x faster but it crashes so often! When the guy set it up, he told me to get speedtests, so I ran on speedtest.net and speakeasy to get them. The sites loaded and my internet was fine. But today, whenever I try to get to those sites, my internet crashes immediately. Not only that, but I notice that when streaming HD on Youtube or elsewhere, the connection tends to crash sometime afterwards. Additionally, the connection may sometimes just crash randomly while I do just about anything.
