The DIR655 is not setup to function as a bridge.

Just double checked the specs.

If you like DLink look at the Xtreme N Duo wireless Bridge/Access Point
TRENDNet TEW 640MB
Linksys WIreless N EN Bridge

Do you have a brand you prefer?  Or simply trying to use what you have?

Unfortnately,

DIR655 isn't setup to do this and I no longer have a device on hand to test out to tweak it, but from memeroy (and the specs I just read) it cannot be done with the native device.

You'll need a new device

I am not certain how large of area you are attempting to broadcast in, I have three levels and with an old Linksys device am able to broadcast a signal between 3 floors and out-of-doors.  I'd say roughly 45-50m circle.  I have a couple areas that are a little weaker, but overall, every room and in the garden, I can hit the AP.
