Windows 7 64-bit -> wireless
Playstation 3

Xbox 360
LAN cable from router to 360

Scientific Atlanta 2203C modem to a Cisco Linksys E3000 wireless router.Ok, so if I turn everything on I can see all computers from all computers, but after a few hours/days (random time) everything disappears, and I have to unplug the router and then everything is back. Is there a way to stop this, and just have everything just be there all the time?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea4500 Wifi Signal Disappearing For Few Seconds

May 6, 2012

My new EA4500 works fine all day, both wireless and wifi, on both bands, but nearly every evening, the wifi signal disappears, as shown on a wifi app for my smart phone, but not on Issid on my laptop, strangely, and my PC laptop and iPad both disconnect, then reconnect.  Smart phone disconnects too.  It isn't like the signal drops in strength, it just goes away! I have tried various settings on modes, and bandwidths, I am using different SSID's on each band, WPA2 security with a long non-dictionary passphrase and MAC filtering.  The hardwire connection works great at 30+ Mbps even when the wifi is disappearing from the wifi scanner and the wifi connections are dropping.  In other words, the cable connection/modem is working fine, but the wifi radio signal stops or the SSID drops off the signal.  I really can't tell, but I know it is becoming very frustrating.  The old WRT54GS works fine if I put it back on-line in the evening when these things start to happen. 
I have turned off everything I can think of in the house that transmits or might transmit, in case it is an interference thing.  I have tried disabling the 5 GHz side, since I can't see what is happening on that band, and the last thing I tried was changing the MTU from 1500 to 1400.  So far, the past evening, it was okay, but I am not confident it will stay that way.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Access Network Shares With E3000

Apr 19, 2010

I replaced my old Linksys WRT54G wireless router with the new E3000 wireless router. The installation was a breeze, but not what followed henceforth. I was able to access the internet on my wireless desktop/laptop/Netflix ROKU player/WD TV live media player, but lost access to all the network shares. I spent a lot of useless time with Linksys chat support and phone support, where they said their responsibility is only getting the internet working. They said they are not responsible for file and printer sharing issues, and suggested I use a third-party paid support package to resolve my issues. Over and above spending a hefty amount for the lates top of the line E3000 router, I was not going to shell out additional money for support.
Thinking that it could probably be due to some Windows XP firewall/anti-virus (McAfee) issues, I disconnected the E3000 and connected the old WRT54G back again. Lo and behold, everything started working fine again. I could access the shared folders of my desktop (to which my router is attached) and printer, from the wireless laptop/desktop/media player just as before without any problems. I then switched back to the E3000 and lost the shares again. So I have come to the conclusion, there is definitely some setting within the E3000 that is preventing the file and printer sharing. I just can't figure out what it could be, and am at a point of returning it back to the store as defective. The extra N-speed is useless to me if my devices can't access the network shared content.Also, I tried to set up the UPnP media server feature of the E3000 by attaching USB storage and configuring it via the Linksys web based utility, but my media player is unable to access the content.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Driving Stake Through G Network?

Apr 4, 2013

Clearly there is something fundamental I do not understand about networks.  Until recently I was running a wrt54g with a network called (let's say) "G".  It was secured using WPA.  
I just bought an E3000, set up a network (let's say "N") and disconnected the WRT54G.
Problem: Not only does the G network still show up among my wireless networks in Win7 and Ubuntu 12.04, but so does something called "G-guest".  Not only that, they show up as unsecured wireless networks.  Not only that, I can access them.
How do I drive a stake through the G network?  Even my bloody phone is connected to "G-guest", which shows up with the properties:
Status: Connected
Security: Open (How do I close this when I don't even have a hardware devices associated with the network???)
Link Speed: 65Mbps
IP address:
Proxy settings: None
If I disconnect from the "N" network and try to connect to the "G-guest" network, my browser directs to which displays a page with the Cisco logo against a blue background, a password text box, and the message Enter the guest access password to access the Internet. Ask the owner if you don't know the password. The guest access password can be found using Cisco Connect.  Of course, the password I had in place when I was running the "G" network on the WRT54G does not work.  This behavior occurs on both my laptop running Ubuntu and on my Android phone.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 / Connecting Devices To Network

Nov 12, 2010

I have 3 computers in total: 2 desktops and 1 laptop.
1. My primary PC is connected physically to my router.

2. My (downstairs) laptop is connected to the wireless.

3. My other PC connects to the wireless network via USB wireless adapter.
I was having issues getting #3 connected to the wireless network.  I used the Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ PIN number provided to me by the Linksys Wireless Manager to no avail.  The E3000 router and #3 could never find each other.After calling support, it turns out that more often than not, "other" wirless management software (in my case Linksys  Wireless Manager that came with the USB device) was interfering with my Windows XP Wireless Manager.Rule of thumb: Always let your native operating system manage the wirless networks that are available to it.  It does a far better job and is 10x more reliable than software provided by 3rd party vendors.Specific to my case: Windows XP, I had to enable the Windows Wireless Manager and uninstall the Linksys Wireless Manager Software. Here it is...Enabling Windows Wireless Manager These directions are for Windows XP:

1) From the Windows Start menu, click Control Panel.

2) Click Network and Internet Connections.

3) Click Network Connections.

4) Right-click the icon for your "wireless network connection", then click Properties.

5) At the top of the window, click the Wireless Networks tab.

If the "Wireless Networks" tab does not appear between the "General" and "Advanced" tabs, you are not on/in the wireless network connection settings:a) click cancelb) Right-click the icon for your wireless connection and choose "Enable". c) return to step 4 6) Check the checkbox next to "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".
These directions are for Windows Vista:

1) Go to the Windows start menu and then the control panel.

2) Open Network and Sharing Center.

3) Click Manage Network Connections (from the left side menu).

4) Right click on the network adapter 'Wireless Network Connection' and choose "Properties" and click "Continue".

5) At the top of the window, click the "Wireless Networks" tab.

If the "Wireless Networks" tab does not appear between the "General" and "Advanced" tabs: a) click cancel b) Right-click the icon for your wireless connection and choose "Enable". c) Return to step 4

6) Check the checkbox next to "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cannot Find Network Computers E3000

Jun 2, 2010

I purchased a E3000 Router to replace a dead Dlink about a week ago..I have 4 wired computers on my network. All in the same workgroup. I have 2 computers connected directly to the E3000, and 2 computers connected to a ProCurve managed switch on the other side of the house. I can ping the computers on the switch side of the network but i cannot see those computers in the network section of windows 7. I can also navigate to them via \ computername.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Get To Home Network With E3000 Working

Jan 17, 2012

I used to have a WRT54G Router at home. I would regularly use Cisco Systems VPN Client to connect to my work router and the RDP to my work PC. (The router at work is Cisco 2811.)A couple months ago, I finally upgraded my home router to a Linksys E1000. Since that time, I have NOT been able to:1) Connect from my work PC to my home PC using Windows RDP2) Connect from home PC to VPN at work via Cisco VPN ClientIt's like the Linksys router at home an Cisco router at work refuse to speak to each other.A week ago, I finally gave up and bought a Linksys E3000. Exact same connect problems as the E3000.To test, I plugged my old WRT54G back in just to see, and lo and behold, all my connection problems go away. Plus the E3000 in again, and I cannot connect b/w home and work.A few other notes:From work, I have successfully used RDP to reach out to other test PCs (friends computers), but I can't get to my home network with the E3000 working. I also can connect to home via RDP using other internet connections, like if I'm in a hotel or airport.It's just that my Linksys E3000 at home and the Cisco 2811 at work refuse to acknowledge each other.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Limited Access Of Network

Dec 8, 2011

I have an E3000 Dual Band.  Currently, I have 3 laptops and two 360s on our network. They work fine. Up until last week so did my other kid's computers.  They came home from college and attempted to get on our network unsuccessfully.  In their network and sharing center, both their computers say under view your active networks: unidentified network (public network). Access type: No network access. Connections: has the correct network name information. When they attempt to access the network with the correct password, they show 4 bars of reception and a message of limited access (along with the above message). I did a little checking and found that our router info differs from their auto configuration.  Our IPv4 starts with 192 not  169 like thiers. Also, the subnet masks are different. Also, they have no info in the IPv4 default Gateway, IPv4 DNS Server, and IPv4 WINS Server.  Finally, my wife tried to acces the network with an ebook reader.  It shows secured WPA2, but won't access it.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 - Cannot Connect To Wifi Network

Aug 20, 2011

I have the E3000 router.  I set it up about a month ago and had my laptop and iphones and ipads all hooked up and working great.  About two weeks ago, all of my devices are having problems connecting to the network and if they do connect, it is unstable (slow speeds or constantly dropping from the network).  I know it is not the internet due to the fact that my LAN connection (hardwired) runs great.  I am pulling my hair out trying to figure out why.  I have restored to factory defauls and started over setting it up with no change in performance.   I have the latest drivers on the router and the laptop.  I thought maybe it was vista and my laptop or network card, but the fact that I cannot get my phones or ipads to connect with good performance I am starting to think it is something to do with the router.  Also, just for more info, I am using Chater cable internet.  I am running vista 64x on the laptop.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Shared Media On Network

Feb 11, 2012

I have a 1TB USB hard drive attached to my E3000 (current firmware), I use it for FTP and Shared Media on my network.  Recently I have noticed that I have files out there that have 0 KB in size (file names/details are still these), I re-upload the files to the folders and during the upload the correct file size shows but a bit later(within minutes) they all show 0 KB again.  I have not seen this type of behavior on an HD before.  Additionally, I added some 20 mp3 files to the FTP site, same thing happened but then I zipped up the 20 mp3 files and the zip file uploaded with not problems and is still there with its proper file size, of course this is not a solution when I want to play media files on my TV.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Extending Same Network In 2 Different Rooms Using E3000?

May 11, 2011

I have a Linksys e3000 and a Linksys WRT120NVery simple setup. the 3000 is in my office. There is a cable that goes from this routerto the living room across the house, it is just laying there. Since I cannot get a wireless signal into that room,I would like, using the cable that is hanging there to make use of the other linksys and provide a wireless signal to the living room, all under the same network. In essence, extending the wireless network using the cable in the living room that is connected to the main router in my office.My question is, without touching the master router, how would I set the 2nd router in the living room up?I understand that DHCP on the 2nd router needs to be turned off, and a channel selected so that it does not overlap. Same SSID, Sam WPA2 key.Or would there be a device better suited for this?I do not want to extend the 2 rooms wirelessly I want to use the cable, then use the wireless in the living room for wireless devices etc.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 - Rename Guest Network / Account?

Jan 20, 2012

I haven't found a way to rename the Guest account on my E3000 router.  If my router is named HomeRouter the Guest account automatically gets the name HomeRouter-guest.  I have disabled the router's SSID broadcast, but it still broadcasts the almost identical Guest account.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Internal Network Service Disconnects

Aug 9, 2012

I have an E3000 router, 2 computers connected via wires, and a PS3, airport express, laptop, and a few other devices which connect wirelessly.  I've been having intermittent difficulties with specific services disappearing within my network.  From time to time, some of the services which run across the network stop working;  The Airport disappears (cannot contact it via airport utility or see it as an airplay destination),  and the Playstation stops being able to contact media server running on wired computer.  When this occurrs, all devices are still able to connect to the internet, and I am even able to copy files between a hard wired computer and laptop via CIFS (windows file sharing) protocol.  Power cycling the E3000 solves this; the airport reappears, the PS3 can once again see the media server running on the PC, etc.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 - Unable To See Network Media Player

Jul 26, 2010

I am unable to see my network media player (wired CAT6 or wireless) using the SAMBA Share feature.  My UPNP works fine.  I do not have this issue when I am using the Linksys WRT54G or a Netgear WNDR3700 (I returned it to give the E3000 a try) - so I know all my share persmissions and device firewall is turned off.  How do I get it to work with the E3000?  I want to be able to transfer and stream media files to my media player using SAMBA.  Usually my network media player automatically detects SAMBA Servers/Devices and adds it to its list for me to access.  But when I use the E3000 that is not the case.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Add Airport Express To E3000 Home Network?

Dec 15, 2011

I added an airport express wirelessly to my E3000 network at home.  Other wireless devices (laptop) sometimes have issues seeing it within the network.  If these devices are wired in the network they don't have any issues seeing the airport express.  Is there any special configuration I need to do to my E3000 so that wireless devices can see each other?  I also had the same issue with my ps3 for streaming from wireless laptop to wireless ps3.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Adding To Network Without Changing Anything On RouteFinder

Jan 5, 2012

I am trying to add the E3000 to my existing network to provide Wireless Connectivity for my users.  The main router is a RouteFinder SOHO VPN (RF560).  The RouteFinder acts as a gateway and provides DHCP.  I do not want to change it's role or settings.  When I added the E3000 using a Lan-to-Lan connection to the RouteFinder, all users lost access to the internet.  As a quick fix as I was working on something else at the time, I just unplugged the E3000.  Now I am reading through Article 3733 that I was originally referred to and that has me changing the settings on the RouteFinder which I do not want to do.  Is there any way to accomplish adding this to my network without changing anything on the RouteFinder at all???  By the way...I am located in another state than this router and network.  I can call and have someone plug and unplug stuff but all of the configuration has to be done remotely.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 - Can't View Network Shares Via Wifi

Feb 28, 2012

I've recently upgraded my home network and now my wdtv can't connect to my shared hdd's on my pc for streaming purposes.  Previously I had some piece of **bleep** G router/modem combo from Verizon and I didn't have any problems accessing my network shares, I did have a streaming problem with some .mkv's because the signal was so poor.  I Finally dropped some cash on a d-link modem and an linksys E3000 router. Here's the messed up part, if my wdtv is plugged, physically, into my router I can access my shares just fine.  I can stream movies with out any lag what so ever.  If I go wireless (as I have previously been with the old westell router/modem combo) I can no longer see my network shares. I can connect to the internet and do netflix, pandora, ect.  But when I go under network shares all that shows up is my router..

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Slow Network Transfer Speeds Over N

Jul 11, 2011

I'm having very slow file transfer speeds between the 2 computers on my network. One is a gigabit pc wired (cat6) to the e3000. The other is a wireless N laptop. Both computers running Win7. Speeds are like 1.5 - 2 MB/s. when I connect the laptop to the router with a cable (cat6) I get proper high speed. Trying to figure out if it's a problem with the router or windows or what. says I'm getting 16 MB/s DL wirelessly to my laptop. Shouldn't wireless N be capable of higher speeds than 1.5 MB/s?? Tests are done approx 10 feet from the router.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Dish-network Dvr Up Via Wifi Link

Dec 13, 2011

I am trying to connect my DishNetwork DVR up via a wireless link to the E3000.My home network consists of a Linux Server acting as a router/gateway for a DSL link, with several pc's (XP/MAC/Linux) connected on a local 10/100 lan.The existing lan addressing scheme uses static IP's and the DVR requires a DHCP link.I thought the E3000 would solve that issue by using it's DHCP server capability to host the DVR wirelessly and integrate it into the rest of the lan.I set up the DHCP and reserved an IP address, which the DVR pick's up just fine, but  although I can ping the gateway and DVR in both directions, I am unable to access the internet.I've tried to set up a static route, but I think I'm not doing it correctly.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cisco E3000 - Guest Network Setup Via Web Interface?

Apr 6, 2010

I just installed my new Cisco E3000 and configured it over the HTTP interface, as I have on previous routers. I am unable to find any setting for the "Guest" wireless network (outbound internet only), or the Parental controls. Both of these are features of interest, and they're simply not listed in any of the web-based settings.
Puzzled, I did a Factory Reset and configured it via the Cisco Connect instead.. this had the Guest feature and Parental controls, but none of the other features I need, like QOS, or Port Forwarding, or DHCP disable.
It seems like the Web interface only configures some settings, and the Cisco Connect configures other settings, but I can't use them both.
Where does one set up the additional password for Guest access? Other than this, the router works fine on 2.4 & 5 GHz, nice..

D-Link DIR-615 :: Wireless Network Disappearing Off Available Networks List?

Dec 13, 2011

I have new DIR-615 D-link router. Since we installed it the network has disappeared randomly off the available networks list, and when I try and open Google Chrome it says there's DNS error. Troubleshooting through windows networks doesn't work because it can't find any problems since my network doesn't even show up on the list. We've even done a factory reset and the problem persists, and it does this about once a day. Resetting the router temporarily fixes the problem. This problem is happening on all 3 laptops in our home, two of which run windows 7 and one which runs XP.

Network Disappearing And Disconnecting Constantly

Dec 3, 2012

I have had the virgin media superhub on 30mb broadband for about a month and over the last week I have been disconnecting from my network up to as much as 3 or 4 times a minute or sometimes once in five minutes and other times it just vanishes from the network list for about 30 seconds then re-appears, sometimes when I disconnect it re-connects almost instantly other times I have to wait about a minute or sometimes even longer even though I can permanently see my neighbours network and my laptop does not have this problem.. I payed �50 for a new wireless card to try and fix the problem and it was fine for a few weeks now it is the same. Restarting the router makes no difference and this is happening all constantly over the last week without fail, i have tried updating my wireless drivers and using different wireless cards.

Networking :: Does MacBook Pro Keep Disappearing From Windows Network OSx 10.5.8

Apr 26, 2011

Running OS X 10.5.8 on an old MacBook Pro on a wireless network. It might be relevant that I recently upgraded the wireless router and the DHCP-assigned IP addresses changed. Before that, everything worked reasonably well.

I can connect to the MBP from Windows 7 computers on the network, logging in with a user name and password, and access the files there as expected.

But the MBP disappears from Windows Explorer after a few minutes. I can usually add it back (always checking the box to remember it) but it just keeps disappearing. Sometimes when it disappears, I can't add it back and when I try, Windows Explorer says, "can't find."

How can I get this share to stick?
