Just got myslf one of the above and for the life of me cannot connect to the internet with it.
I have tried automatic set up and manual set up.

I know 5the settings are correct as I copied them from my existing router a Netgear DG834G.

Do I need an added modem with the D-link?

You appear to have got a "Cable/DSL" router, which doesn't incorporate an ADSL Modem and which would normally be used with Virgin's *CABLE* broadband service.

You could actually use it by plugging its ethernet WAN port into one of the existing LAN ports of the DG834G. By doing this, the D-Link would still give you a Gigabit LAN via its ethernet ports and 802.11n (300Mbps) wireless connectivity. This would be much simpler to set up than getting an Ethernet ADSL Modem and I cannot see any disadvantages.

I think you have The wrong device

Netgear DG834G is an ADSL router for connecting to the phone line

There is no mention of ADSL with the DIR 655 I think its a router to connect to a cable modem.
