What do you mean that it does not work by default.  Is this what you

C-a    ; To move to bol
C-SPC  ; To activate the region
<down> <down>... ; To extend the region downward.

(Or `C-n' instead of `<down>'.)

What did you try, what did it do, and what did you expect it to do?

Were you describing WDired (editable Dired, after `C-x C-q') or
Dired?  In the former, <down> and `C-n' are bound to
`wdired-next-line', not `dired-next-line'.
