Thank you so much for this!! I kept calling D link technical support but they did not help me the way this article did. As soon as I completed the steps, my apple tv worked! Thank you thank you!!

I have been trying to get my Dir-655 to work with Apple TV for months........NO success at all until I saw your post.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! My old DIR-655 (hardware version A) had recently died. I had replaced the router with a new version (hardware B) of DIR-655. When that happened, both apple tvs (3rd generation) could still access the internet but not my itunes music, movies stored on my shared local drive. Going with both of your suggested Firewall Settings has me up and running again!

NICE!! I´ve been looking for two weeks for a resolution of the problem of using airplay from my pioneer vsx-922 together with the d-link but didnt find any till now! I also just did the "step 6" and it worked instantly. BIG THANKS!

Another "Thank You" for the comprehensive post. It cleared up both my AppleTV access and my AirPort Express AirPlay access.
Enabling Multicast Streams got the ATV recognized by my Laptop.
Opening the Ports got AirPlay re-enabled on my iPhone and iPad.
Glad to see I did not have to wast too much time in re-inventing this solution on my own.
Best of Luck

MUCHAS GRACIAS!! it worked for aTV3 as well.
Previously i've tried port forwarding, but failed since i have dynamic IP.
Apple need to take this as their official troubleshooting.

I thought I'd share a bit of what I've learned about airplay/airprint using Apple TV 3 with the DIR-655 (Hardware B1, firmware 2.03NA) related to the steps in this post. We also use a software called Fingerprint (from Collobos) that hosts printers from our server to apple devices as if they were airprint enabled. Works great in the office and is cheap. However, enabling either SPI firewall (Step 1) or WMM (Step 5b) breaks the airprint functionality. Airplay to aTV3 worked with either setting on these steps. Otherwise I'd leave WMM enabled for the "increased" performance. Step 2 didn't matter for me, Step 6 is a must for any airprint/airplay setup.
To sum up, step 6 may be all that's needed for aTV3, unless you're also using airprint. For airprint I also had to forward TCP&UDP ports 6631 and 5353 to the computer hosting fingerprint and disable the SPI firewall and WMM.
Thanks for the great post.

Dude I love you, it totally fixed my problem. Now I can finally move my amp away from my computer, and stream audio over wifi!
Thanks for taking the time to write this down, been trying to solve this problem for months! :-)

Thanks for the post! This fixed my airplay issues instantly. I went to go and use AirPrint and it worked the first time. Then it has disappeared...
Do I need to open up ports for the printer as well?

AirPrint is also intermittent for me. Not sure what changed- possibly ios6.1. I am running fingerprint 2 and updated firmware to 2.10. Still the same results. If you wait a bit on the printer selection, eventually the printers will appear.

What is fingerprint 2?
I am trying to use an HP wireless printer with a desktop and laptop which work just fine printing. My iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and iPad will not work with AirPrint.

See my post above for description of fingerprint, which enables non-airprint printers to talk to apple devices over the network (without buying new printers!). I also tried airprint on an HP printer for awhile, but had mixed success. As I recall you have to have the printer on wireless for airprint to work, not a wired connection.
