D-Link DIR-655 :: Webaccess Filter / Access Control Doesn't Work With 1.35NA
Aug 28, 2011
For some reason I can't get Access Control/Webaccess Filters working on my Dir-655 w/ 1.35NA. I've tried it with MAC and IP Address without any success. I've also enabled/disabled/enabled DNS Relay, recreated the rules, recreated the filters, etc. Nothing.
I had the website filter ON and it was working very well to block a few websites on a schedule. And after a few month, it doesn't work any more. While it is possible that I scewed up the setting , I have tried so many settings.
So:DIR655 fw 1.32NA,hw A3,"Enable access control" is on with the desktop MAC address (used copy this MAC)(I have also tried my laptop MAC),web site filter is set to "deny",the router time is set using NTP dlink server,
I have several laptops at home that connect via wireless connection tot he DIR_655. Using the MAC address of those laptops, I want to prevent them from going to certain websites.Under 'Advanced" and "Website Filter", I addes several domain names (websudoku.com for example). I selected "DENY computersaccess to ONLY these sites". I then saved settings.I then went to "Access Control". I clicked on "Enable Access Control".I clicked on "Add Policy" to cdreate a new policy for one of the laptops.When I boot the laptop and go to one of the websites, it still allows me access. The URL/domain name is correct.
I'm trying to get 'Access Control' working so I can limit Wi-Fi time on my kids iPod touches, but the settings aren't clear and the help file is not clear whatsoever.I've been testing it with my iPhone, I have the MAC added, but none of the options available will even stop my iPhone accessing the internet over my Wi-Fi.
I'm trying to set up a website filter on my DIR-601. I created a policy for 2 MAC addresses, with a schedule from 10AM-6PM, selected "Block some websites", and disabled logging. Under website filter, I added some entries, and selected "DENY computers access to ONLY these sites". When the policy is enabled, and I try to access one of the blocked websites, it gets blocked correctly ("The URL access was denied by administrator.") However, for all other websites, I get "server unexpectedly dropped the connection" errors, eg "Safari can�t open the page [URL] because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. Wait for a few minutes, and then try again." or in Chrome "No data received. Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data." This happens with ALL non-blocked websites. I'm using hardware version A1, firmware version 1.01NA.
Like others I see on this board, we've got middle- and high-school age kids whose access to FB and other sites needs to be controlled/scheduled.
I thought the DIR-655 was great, in that it has features that, on the face of it, would seem to be ideal for blocking domains and restricting access.
My problem: I've never been able to get this to work.
I've set up schedules and created lists of domains that I want to limit access to according to the schedules, but the only constraint I've ever gotten to stick is blocking access completely to the router.
*None* of the schedule-based or website-based access controls have ever worked; I'll put the block in place to my daughter's computer's MAC address so she shouldn't be able to get to youtube or facebook, save, bounce the router, but then I go by her room and she's still busily chatting away online to her FB friends.
Based on similar posts I've seen on this forum, this may not be a unique problem.
So in a nutshell, this is what I want to do:
1) Block certain computers (identifiable by MAC address)
2) from being able to get to particular named domains (and any of their sub-domains)
3) according to a schedule that I can create and modify.
My preference would be to do this in the router, but again, responses I've seen here suggest that may not be possible.
Few days ago, I updated the firmware of my router to 1.35NA and everything seemed to be working fine at first. After a while though, I noticed my Nexus One phone wasn't getting internet through WiFi anymore. It is connected to WiFi still, and it can ping the other devices on the network but it won't connect to the web. I have a Xoom tablet connected to WiFi as well and it is getting access to the web, though it seems to drop web access from time to time too, even before the firmware update. My phone always had a connection to the web through WiFi before the update. The two PCs that have a wired connection work fine. In the router logs, I also noticed that "UPnP renew entry 255.255.255.255 <-> ... UDP timeout:0 'Teredo'" being spammed over and over since the update, which I read has something to do with IPv6?
A friend of mine has given me a D-link DIR-615 Wireless Router. I only have a copper 10 meg ADSL service. The Router Internet socket is an RJ45, the ADSL Filters are RJ11. Is it possible to get this router to work on an ADSL Filter ? Can you get ADSL Filters with both an RJ45 and BT Phone connection on them, or a converter lead which converts RJ45 to RJ11 to work on the current ADSL filter?

After lot of troubleshooting and efforts I figured out there seems to be BUG with routers firmware 0.6.0 1.1 v0005.0 Build 120926 Rel.27100n.When you enable Bandwidth control, FTP stops working from Internet. However, it does work from local network. When you disable Bandwidth control, FTP starts working from internet as well as local network.
hardware version D3, FW 4.10 and 4.11 same problem.
i tried with 4 wlan adapters: two of them support 802.11b/g, they always work find no matter which settings. the other two support 802.11b/g/n, as default "n" is enabled, so does DIR-615, both wlan adapters can be connected to DIR-615, they get their LAN-IP, but they can access neither DIR-615(no respone to ping) nor internet. but if i disable "n" mode either in the adapter or in DIR-615, everythin works fine, of course only with 54mbit max.
The DIR-825 wireless simply doesn't work. When I called tech support, we cleared some settings and hard-powered the unit on/off and it finally turned on the wireless radio. A couple weeks later I pull out my laptop to use in the house via wireless and the wireless on the DIR-825 is OFFLINE AGAIN...fallen and it can't get UP.Is anyone having issues with keeping their wireless online? OK - powered it off for 5 minutes...now the wireless is working. I think changing configuration settings causes the thing to lock up.
Recently I bought a Windows 8 (64bits) computer, which is now part of my home network, but it has problems with Shareport. The other computers can be easily connected to a USB printer on my DIR-825 (HW B1) router, but the W8 computer refuses to completely install Shareport (both the CD version and the latest download v1.17). I also tried Shareport-Plus v4.11 (found on the DIR 835 page), which did install correctly, but was still unable to see the USB printer. What can be done? Can D-Link provide a new version of Shareport?
I can't get my brand new DCS-930L cam to connect to my network by using the WPA / WPA2 encryption. Works ok wired, with WEP or with no encryption enabled. Red led is on the front. I've tested sw version 1.02, 1.03 and the latest 1.04b03. Same result: WPA doesn't work. I have a Thomson TG789 Gateway/Router as provided by my ISP. All other units in the network works perfectly fine on WPA i.e. PC, Mac, printers, mobile phones etc etc.
I have a DSL router Pirelli PDF A1000G.I have a Linksys e3000 and I have a dap-1522.When I bought a dap-1522 I thought it could do access point in fact i saw many videos in dlinktv before choosing an access point from DIY with mike etc to youtube there are 2 videos one showing bridged mode and another ap mode!Now what happens is this I have upgraded from firmware 1.11 that came as default to 1.21 i connect it wired to my linksys e3000 when it is connected with the ethernet cable wired I can connect to the internet and navigate and open sites and my ps3 can connect to it but my range is not very good only 40%!
Now I bring it downstairs remove the ethernet cable and connect it to the power and then you can connect to it but since it isn't connected to my router which is upstairs i can't access websites neither can I play on my ps3!I don't know does only ap mode works when it is connected to the router wired because what happens is if you don't put ethernet cables in the back of the dap-1522 and just connect it to power then here doewnstairs you can connect to the dap-1522 my signal is like 87% but while I'm connected with my laptop I can't access websites and in the ps3 I can't connect!
and choose access points there are (4) listed: dap-1522, dap-1160, dap-1353 and dap-2553, I thought of buying dap-1522 because it could support abgn while 1160 only supports g and 1353 only supports n to repeat to signal here downstairs and be a good access point!
Edit I've found a work-around. It's on page 2: [URL]
I'm having this really weird issue with my DIR-655 revB. I have some port forwarding rules set up and externally they work fine. However, if I try connecting to my IP address using those same ports from a computer within my LAN, it won't connect.
Externally, I can ping my WAN address and connect through forwarded ports. No problems. Internally, pinging my WAN address apparently works (just now is the first time that's worked for me), however I can't access any of my computers using the WAN IP and port forwarded ports. I can access them by going directly to their hostnames or LAN IPs.
Things I've tried:
-Disabling/enabling firewalls on all computers involved
-Disabling/enabling QoS engine
-Disabling/enabling DNS relay
-Disabling/enabling Advanced DNS
-Adding custom nameservers from Google and Comodo
-Clearing DNS cache (I use a dynamic DNS name which works externally but not internally. This gets the correct IP internally and connecting directly to the IP doesn't work either.)
-Modifying the NAT Endpoint Filtering settings
I have an external DSL modem connected to the router using PPPoE if it matters.
The weird part is that it works externally but I've modified all of the values I can think of in the config with no luck. I upgraded to the DIR-655 from a DIR-615 which had all these settings in it and worked fine (until it started acting up which is why I replaced it).

The problem is that Website Filer doesn't work if on STEP 3: SELECT MACHINE of Access Control the machine was selected by MAC address. When the machine was selected by IP everything is fine.The problem is that IP addresses are assigned dynamically, so how to make sure that the policy would be applied to the same machine?
I just got my DIR 825. It had 2.02NA Firmware in it. It had a few options that I wanted to use but didn't work. So I thought I would update firmware. I follow the instruction from dlink to install firmware. So I loaded 2.03 and noticed internet connection not working. So then I loaded 2.05 part1 and part2. Still could get internet connection to work but the reason to upgrade the option I wanted worked. So then I loaded 2.06 and still same result. No internet connection. So then I loaded the original firmware back in and internet connection works. Why doesn't the internet work on the other firmware updates. I got the updates from dlink website. I would like to update firmware
First off, my router is a D-Link DIR-655, firmware v2.07. I'm trying to port forward port 25565.
My port forward settings are this:
However, when I use this open port checker, it claims that I don't have that port open. It looks like this, without the blurred out parts:
Added note: The way I want to use it is by my IP (xxx.xxx.xxx.154:25565). I have the software installed to do so (I'm using a minecraft server, connecting through minecraft), but I can't enter my IP in the IP address field, it says that it's out of the range of the LAN.
I have just updated myDIR-655 A4 to firmware 1.35NA by the procedure: save config > upload firmware > load config.However after upgrading, my admin page now logout after every ~10 sec of inactivity.I have tried the method where to view the admin page without a style, to be able to set the timeout period, from 5 mins to 3, 8 and 10 mins, but no matter what I set, it still logs me out after ~10 sec.
I have tried to setup access control by setting up a policy that restricts certain MAC addresses during a period during the day from certain websites. I set up the website filter and a schedule and selected them for the policy. Instead of blocking just the websites on the filter list during the time setup in the schedule, it blocks all websites all the time.I made sure that I setup the policy to 'block some access' NOT 'block all access'.The only thing that seems to work is that only the computers with the MAC address selected are effected.
I may be doing it incorrectly, but I'm trying to configure web access rules. I first set up access control and tell it to use the website filter. I've tried configuring it by both MAC address and IP address (separately, not simultaneously), but it still allows the listed sites in the web filter to get through. Is there something else I need to block or am I not doing something correctly? The network is on DHCP reservation, so IP addresses are always the same. MAC addresses, as I mentioned, don't work, either and they are fixed and logged in the router.
DIR655 with 1.33NA firmware. I'm trying to determine how to block access to the internet for a specific LAN computer when the user knows how to change a MAC address. I don't want to turn MAC control on and grant only to listed computers - the list doesn't accommodate enough MAC addresses, and the client has wireless and wired since it's a laptop. I also don't want to set static IPs on all of the devices since some cannot accommodate that feature.I'm thinking that reserving an IP address isn't ultimately the solution either, since assigning the IP isn't going to work if the MAC changes. how to use access control under these circumstances?
I tried to upgrade to 2.05NA several times and there always ends up being an issue that support is too sad to give the correct answer to and just puts a consumer thru "jumping thru hoops" and getting nowhere.2.05NA (actually started with 2.03NA) first caused a problem with limiting my upload speed to 1024mb. I happened across the fix on another forum and tried it and it worked. It was the default QoS setting D-Link changed after version 2.02NA and refuses to release a new firmware to fix this for everyone. Why they don't release a new FW that fixes the issue but keeps things promised on the package working is beyond me. Now, I purchased a D-Link DNS-323 and I finally got drives to fill it some time back. If 2.05NA is loaded, the Easy Search Utility will not connect to the NAS. I have tried the version the NAS came with AND the latest version offered. It will see the NAS upon 1st launch of the latest Easy Search Utility, but it will not connect and then it disappears if you relaunch the utility and won't return until a reboot. Bottom Line: it will not connect with 2.05NA loaded. It works fine with 2.02NA.
What is the setting that D-Link has screwed over here also that is causing this problem? It is pretty sad that their own hardware items won't play well together unless you run old FW. What setting D-Link changed that is making the D-Link DIR-825 not connect to the D-Link DNS-323 NAS when the DIR-825 has 2.05NA loaded. I have a DIR-825 Rev. B1 and a DNS-323 NAS with its latest firmware. I am using 2.02NA on the router since that is the only one that works and is the latest stable release(other than the DHCP reserve issue), no matter what D-Link wants to try to make people think. I won't try their support since they NEVER did give me the fix for the QoS upload issue and when I asked them to put it as a sticky in this forum when I found the answer somewhere else....well, there is no sticky as we all know. I would like to be able to have the DHCP Reserve issue working too, but I would like to connect to my NAS more at this point.

I am using a MR3420 V2 together with a E398 modem. The connection works well, but I can't do any port forwarding (virtual server). Using another router (Tiny Dovado) with the same E398 modem works flawlessly to forward ports.

Just got TL-MR3040 from amazon, not very happy that it is version 1, they could at least mention it in the description, but whatever...The problem is, i can not make it work with my PC laptop(thinkpad x120e with Windows 7 64 bit). Which means,1 not possible to get into web interface to configure it, and 2 if i configure it with old powerbook (os x 10.4) to share internet from usb stick, i can connect to it's wireless network but it doesn't share internet with my pc laptop,while mac and ipad working perfect...I've try to log in into web interface through the cable, still no luck...Not sure i want to re-install the whole system on my laptop just to see if it will change anything, it works with any other router, and usb sticks...
I have (2) 942-L, and (1) 5222-L on one network. port forwarding set on router; (942) 192.168.1.3:1024, (942) 192.168.1.4:1025, and (5222) 192.168.1.8:80. no matter if all 3 are connected to dViewCam, only two will work at a time. Disconnect any third, and they work fine. reconnect 3rd, and one disconnects intermittently. On a side note, if I run a different program on another computer (iMac); i.e. IP Camera Viewer, they all work fine. I know, I know, but I like DViewCam, because it's the only thing running the PC computer.
I recently set up two cameras. I had set up one for motion detection and email to a gmail account. It seemed to work fine, but then for some reason the motion detection tab didn't show the room like it did before. It doesn't show any picture or anything like it did before, so I couldn't choose the squares to choose the detection area. This is through mydlink account->camera info->advanced settings, and logging in to the camera remotely.So I switched to the other camera, and got it working as of last week. But now, the motion detection doesn't work anymore? It appears to be related to the username/password for the email account. I can no longer send test emails, it says invalid username/password, though the exact same values worked last week, and I didn't change anything. I tried resetting it, then setting it again, but no luck.

I've just set up a MR3420. It works fine in "WAN only" mode and provides access via our ADSL modem. It also works fine in "3G only" mode and provides access via a Reliance Netconnect+ USB modem (a Huawei E150 I think). I updated the firmware to the latest version in order to get it to work with the USB modem.
The problem I have is that when I set it to "3G preferred" it doesn't seem to connect over 3G. I can see it tries to connect but then fails and then WAN takes over. The connect and disconnect options are greyed out on the 3G page so I am unable to manually get it to retry. I've tried leaving it for a long time but it doesn't seem to connect over 3G ever. I've tried setting 3G to connect on demand and connect automatically but both behave the same.
So, after everyone was raving about the 1.35NA version, I downloaded it. As I always do, I disabled my wireless NIC and connected an RJ-45. I saved my config to a .gws file. I uploaded the new firmware. When I went to reload my settings file, it said it was not a valid file. I tried multiple times. I even tried earlier versions of saved config files. Same thing.
So, I figured I'd revert to the 1.34NA firmware it was previously on. It wouldn't take it. So, I used the router config "system" page and chose "restore factory defaults". It didn't work. It still had the 1.35NA. So, I used the router's reset button. I held it in for 10 seconds, saw the system lights all blink in unison. I checked the config page and it was still on 1.35NA.
i just thought i would try 1.35na firmware and i decided i wanted to go back to 1.33na, well you cant BE FOREWARNED.
i don't know what is the big deal about stopping you from downgrading your firmware that they lock you out of it. it never used to be a problem, pretty sure i could downgrade from 1.34na to other 1.3 firmware.
the reason for allowing people to downgrade is incase the new firmware does not work properlly. not allowing your customers to do this is just asking for trouble not to mention alienating your customers.
at work we downgrade firmware to the firmware that passed our quality tests, it also makes it easier to support them when they are all the same.
1.35 works well so i dont have to buy another router. if it doesn't you can be sure it wont be another dlink thats for sure.
