D-Link dir-655 Range
Posted on 2011-05-04
We've had a D-Link DIR-655 for several years with no problems. However, with all the storms last week, we've been having major power problems. Somewhere along the line the D-Link ended up getting reset. So I had to reconfigure it and now the range STINKS. If I take a laptop into the room with the router, the signal strength is fine. But anywhere more than ten feet down the hall the signal drops to almost nothing. My daughter's desktop is at the far end of the house, and it's always worked perfectly. But now it can get a signal of about 10% about 5% of the time. Is there a setting I could have messed up in resetting this router? I know there's a setting for HIGH range, but that's the default so it's already set to that. I'm hoping I've messed up the settings and it's not a hardware problem, but with the power issues we've been having I just don't know. Any ideas about what settings could be responsible?
