A 1-0 defeat against arch-rivals Cardiff City in an historic top flight clash has left the Swans licking their wounds.
They will, however, get the opportunity to start making amends on Thursday when they return to Europa League action against Kuban Krasnodar.
A Premier League clash with Stoke City is then pencilled in for Sunday, offering Michael Laudrup's side the chance to play their way back into form after three games without a win in all competitions.
Dyer said on the need to keep things simple and avoid offering any excuses: "Everyone has gelled now - it is not a case of new players needing to settle in.
"I just feel that we need to go back to basics. We have to work hard as a team, from the front to the back, and we have to be together.
"The possession has changed a little bit. Everyone is used to us playing short and sharp passes but I think that has changed with the manager wanting us to penetrate more through the defence and play more through balls. That aspect has changed a little bit, although we still know how to keep the ball.
"Pressing-wise I feel we need to do that higher up the pitch, but everyone has to do it otherwise it doesn't work."
On the need to provide a positive response to the Cardiff setback, Dyer added: "After a loss like that you are down yourself as well as the fans - it is not just them who are hurting.
"You don't want to talk about it so you just try to keep away and let it cool down for a bit.
"Collectively we weren't as good as we have been before. Everyone was down in the dressing room - we were not happy at all. There's not much more you can say. It's a loss, but it's one of the worst losses because of who we were playing against and the stature of the game.
"I wouldn't say we have played anywhere near the level we managed last season as a team. Maybe in patches in games we have played well, maybe in one half or for 30 minutes, but as yet we have not hit our best form throughout a game. That's what we are looking for."
