From the Manufacturer

Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


The D-Link DIR-655 offers decent throughput performance and stable wireless signal. The router has an intuitive and responsive Web interface, support for Gigabit Ethernet and guest networking, and an extensive set of networking features.


The DIR-655 doesn't have dual-band support. Its SharePort USB port can work with only one computer at a time.

Bottom Line

With the latest firmware update, the D-Link DIR-655 is arguably one of the best among single-band Wireless-N routers on the market.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5★by 419reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★by Very Satesfied! We have been using a (less expensive) router for the past two years. We have 4 notebooks, 3 desktops, 3 wifi smart phones, 1 xbox, 1 ps3, and a Wii. Oh, and a blue-ray player with wifi for netflix.For two years, we have been dealing with constant dropped connections and having to "reset" our router by unplugging it, and then plugging it back in. Sometimes up to three times in an hour. It couldn't keep up with all the connections. It was causing IP conflicts, and sometimes the signal strength would drop way down in the next room.Purchasing this DIR-655 has completely eliminated all of our problems, we have all the devices in the house connected, most of them wireless, and there are NO dropped connections, NO need to reset the router, and the speed has also improved dramatically. Netflix now streams in HD.I highly recommend this router for gamers, or just anybody who has been dealing with the characteristics of a cheap router. I'm very impressed with this router and how incredibly fast and reliable it is. 07/22/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★by For Gamers This router is great! I switched over from a Linksys’s router that I had to unplug once or twice a day because it couldn’t take everything we had hooked up to it. As of now we have 4 laptops, 1 desktop, 1 PS3, 1 Wii, and anywhere from 3 to 5 Xbox 360’s hooked up to this router at a time. The Xbox’s are hooked up via a Netgear switcher to the router. This router has been running nonstop for 4 weeks now and not a single problem surfing YouTube, checking email, or playing halo on 5 Xbox’s at the same time. 10/22/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★by Just what I wanted/not what I expected This is my first router though I have used personal computers almost since they were introduced. I recently updated my desktop and thought that I would get a laptop for the fun of it since I got rid of my last old Dell laptop many years ago. I live in the country and have wireless internet.I got the router and unpacked it. I had read the reviews and most said to set it up manually, even my service provider said not to use the CD and set up manually. I didn't listen.I figured that I could start over if it didn't work so I put in the CD and started the setup. Five minutes later I was done, my laptop was online with the max signal and all was functioning perfectly. Still is.I have nothing to compare this to but this does what it said it would to the max with easy setup and so far perfect operation. Range is outstanding and signal has never dropped below 100%. I would highly recommend. 08/07/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★by Outstanding Router We decided to splurge on this router since the $50 Belkin we bought didn't work for us. It was quick to install and has worked perfectly since. We use it with our iMac and our PC laptop. Its coverage is incredible. It doesn't matter where we are in the house (or in our yard), the speed is amazing. It was more than we wanted to spend, but it's been worth it for us. Walmart sold it for much less than other stores. We give our overall experience an "A." 06/25/2009
Rated 4 out of 5★by Great little router for me! I recently went from DSL to a high speed WiFi offered by the city I live in. That alone made a big difference then I got the D-Link DIR 655. WOW!!!Total time to set up was about 15 minutes. I followed the EASY step by step directions from the CD that was supplied. Everything worked the first time.I am using the USB port to run a HP6310 all in one printer. I followed the directions and in a short time I had one desktop and two laptops that were printing great.I have programmed the “Guest Zone” to turn on and off and certain times and that is working great also.I have not had ANY reboots, overheating or signal dropping issues. I leave the router on 24-7 and all is well.I am using a Dell desktop that is 3 years old, 3 Dell laptops 2 years old and all running Vista Pro. I have Xbox 360, Wii, 2 Roku units and a DIRECTV receiver using the router and it can handle them just fine. My house is 2 two story about 2200 sq ft. I live in a moderately dense neighborhood and I do not have any problems with signal interference.I can’t comment on D-Link tech support because I didn’t need them, but if they are like any of the others…good luck communicating with them.I did a couple weeks of research before I made my mind up to purchase this router. I agree a person can get a “lemon” with anything they buy, but I think 15% of the people cannot be pleased with anything or they can not follow the simple directions included.I am sure there are better routers out there, but for the money and my experience the DIR-655 was the best choice for me. I hope this was of some help in making your next router choice. Good luck! 12/19/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★by 15 minute manual setup Bought this router today. I have set up my fair share of wireless routers before so I skipped the included software and configured it manually myself. I set up WEP, MAC filtering, and made the SSID invisible quickly and easily and was online in no time. I have used Linksys and US Robotics routers in the past and have good luck with both of them as well. This new N-series router has much better range and speed and that was what I was looking for. Good product. 03/08/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★by Wireless Router DIR-655 I had been searching for a Wireless-N Router for a long time. Rather than just pick most any model from D-Link or Linksys (as some of my colleagues suggested) I spent much time looking at Consumer Reviews and Consumer Reports web sites to understand what other people were experiencing.I also consulted CNET and PC Magazine + a couple other techie sites to see what they recommended. The horrible experiences other folks were having put a wireless router for me on the backburner (stories of disastrous firmware upgrades, rebooting, lockups and extreme heat byproduct make the potential buyer beware and very cautious).Finally out of dire need, I re-visited the DIR-655 and a few other routers for the most up to date information (price & recommendations). It turned out that the DIR-655 was still highly recommended and the more recent consumer reviews had high praise for the product. With that level of confidence I then sought out the best price and the most reputable retailers.Only one web retailer was cheaper than WalMart.com by $5.00 and included no tax + free shipping. What sold me on WalMart though were 2 things: 1. Free Shipping to Store; 2. Buyer confidence that I could return the product to the local store if I was not satisfied. The second reason made the overall purchase more worthwhile than saving the tax amount. Having determined that others who bought from web retailers had no where to turn but the manufacturer when thy had product issues, being able to take back the DIR-655 to my local store was a better "insurance" option than the slightly cheaper price.Overall, the DIR-655 has been performing flawlessly. A minor problem - the documentation provided is a bit out of sync with the web application that can be used to configure the router. But, all in all, the product works great for wired and wireless connections! 06/22/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★by Great Product Stong Performance and a wealth of settings to customize this router. The ONLY thing I can knock about this router is that the white plastic box and cheap blurry blue LED indicators make it look like a $20 router. Don't let that fool you away from its quality, but I have to ask, D-Link, why? It's not a Wii, it's a router.Wal*Mart should stock this in stores. Don't understand why they don't. 03/20/2010
