I cannot see the Setup Wizard when I turn on my DSM series media player for the first time.

•Make sure your TV is displaying the appropriate video source. You may need to use the AV Input, Source, Select, or TV/Video button on your TV or TV remote to change video sources. If you are having trouble changing the video source, refer to the instructions that came with your TV.

•If you did not connect the player directly to your TV, but are instead passing the signal through your VCR, make sure your VCR is displaying the appropriate video source. You may need to use the Input or Source button on your VCR or VCR’s remote control. Some VCRs only pass the signal through when they are turned off. If you are having trouble displaying the correct video source, refer to the instructions that came with your VCR.


•Make sure cables are connected to the IN jacks on your TV or VCR, not the OUT jacks.

•The cables you are using to connect your receiver to your TV or other equipment may be damaged or defective. Try exchanging the cables connected to the receiver with other cables that you know are working properly.

•Verify the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet and that the outlet is not controlled by a light switch.

What are some Wireless Installation Considerations, that I might have to look in to?

The D-Link DSM allows you to access your network a wireless connection anywhere within the operating range of your wireless network. Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range. Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home. The key to maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:


1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the D-Link DSM and router to a minimum – each wall or ceiling can reduce your DSM’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized between the PC-on-TV and your router.

2. Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a wall or ceiling (instead of at an angle) for better reception.

3. Building Materials make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on range. Try to position access points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through drywall or open doorways. Materials and objects such as glass, steel, metal, walls with insulation, water (fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, brick, and concrete will degrade your wireless signal.

4. Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise.

5. If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones or X-10 (wireless products such as ceiling fans, lights, and home security systems), your wireless connection may degrade dramatically or drop completely. Make sure your 2.4GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless devices as possible. The base transmits a signal even if the phone is not in use.

Troubleshooting Tips

Keyboard: If your keyboard is not functional, not detected, or there is a keyboard error, check the following:

  • Make sure that the keyboard is properly connected to the computer and to the KVM switch. Check that the keyboard is plugged into the correct USB/PS2 keyboard port and not the USB/PS2 mouse port.
  • Verify that the keyboard works when plugged into the computer directly.
  • If you have multiple operating systems installed on your computer, please contact your motherboard/computers manufacture for information on enabling USB/PS2 support on your system.

Mouse: If your mouse is not functional, not detected or there is a mouse error, check the following:

  • Make sure that the mouse is properly connected to the computer and to the KVM switch. Check that the mouse is plugged into the correct USB/PS2 mouse port and not the USB/PS2 keyboard port.
  • Verify that the mouse works when plugged into the computer directly.
  • Try using a different mouse.
  • If you are having trouble with the mouse movement, try resetting the switch by pressing Scroll Lock + Scroll Lock + M.
  • Do not move the mouse or press any mouse buttons when switching from one PC to another.
  • Try resetting the mouse by unplugging it from the DKVM for about 3 seconds and reconnection it.

Video: If the image on your monitor is not clear, check the following:

  • Verify that the video monitor cables are inserted properly.
  • Try lowering the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor.
  • Try using a shorter video cable.

Step 1: With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.

Step 2: Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

Step 3: The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.

Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.

You can set an administrative password on DIR-655 router?

Step 1: Open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router in the address bar (default is Press Enter.

Step 2: Click the Tools tab and then click Admin to the left.


Step 3: To change the administrative password, enter a new password in the Admin Password section.

My D-Link router DI-624 locked up,Follow these steps to solve the problem:

• A large amount of traffic may lock the router up. Disable any broadcast protocols or unused protocols such as NetBEUI and IPX/SPX.

• Disable UPnP(TM) if not being used on both your computer (ME or XP) and on the router (Tools – Misc).

• Check the log on your router. Is it showing a large amount of traffic? If coming from 1 IP address, you may want to use the IP Filter to block that user.

• Check the log settings and uncheck some of the items the router will report.

• Check your firewall and virtual server settings on the router. Too many may degrade performance of the router.

• Upgrade firmware. If you have the latest version, flash it again.

• Perform a hard reset on the router and reconfigure. With the unit powered on, use a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 10-15 seconds. Release and wait about 20 seconds. DO NOT power off while holding the reset button.

Some applications require multiple connections, such as Internet gaming, video conferencing, Internet telephony, VPNs, and others. These applications have difficulties working through NAT (Network Address Translation). If you need to run applications that require multiple connections, specify the port normally associated with an application in the Trigger Port field, select the protocol type as TCP (Transmission Control Protocol, UDP (User Datagram Protocol), or both, then enter the public ports associated with the trigger port to open them for inbound traffic.

This article tell you how to use the special applications feature on D-Link routers,DI-624 as an example.

The Trigger port is an outgoing port (from LAN to WAN) that the application will send out.

Step 1: Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your router (

Step 2: Enter your username (admin) and password, if any.

Step 3: Click on Advanced tab on the top and then Applications on the left side.


Name – This is the name referencing the special application.

Trigger Port – This is the port used to trigger the application. It can be either a single port or a range of ports.

Trigger Type – This is the protocol used to trigger the special application.

Public Port – This is the port number on the WAN side that will be used to access the application. You may define a single port or a range of ports. You can use a comma to add multiple ports or port ranges.

Public Type – This is the protocol used for the special application.

At the bottom of the screen, there are already defined well-known special applications. To use them, click on the edit icon and enable the service.
