We have had a Cisco WAG160Nv2 wireless router here for home use, brand new for perhaps just 2 months. And we have been mostly happy, except that it sometimes freezes up for no apparent reason.
When I say "freeze up", I mean that all the connected PCs - ethernet or wireless - have no internet. And that indeed, there is no wireless signal at all. But yet it actually looks as if it is still working. All the lights on the front panel that should be green are still green. But yet, when I attempt to access the router's setup through the browser as normal, that isn't available either. So I can't even access the router's setup, to check for errors in the log.But yet it isn't an ISP problem either. Because every time this happens, the solution is to turn the router off and then back on. And that works every time. So it seems to be a router problem, not an ISP problem.
I have a RV082 that has an issue keeping an IPSEC Gateway to Gateway VPN running from itself to our ASA 5510. At 8 hours of connectivity (I can almost set a clock to it) the Tunnel will say it is connected on the RV082 but on the ASA 5510 the tunnel is not up.
If I click on disconnect on the RV082 under the VPN Summary page things will come back up. from the ASA 5510 side there is nothing I can do to get things back (ping inside "vpn network" or even trying to make a connection to a networked VPN machine).
To make things more complicated I have another VPN on the RV082 to a PIX 506e that works with no issues. I also have another RV082 at another location with the same settings that keeps its tunnel with the ASA 5510 with out any issue. Some things I have tried to try and fix the issue are:
I upgrade the firmware on the Rv082 V3 from 22.214.171.124-tm (what it was shipped with) to 4.1.1.01-sp) - This seemed to have no effect.
on the RV082 I have changed the MTU from automatic to 1428 and 1452 - all this does is make the connection to the PIX 506e unstable like it is for the ASA 5510 I have changed this back to automatic.
since the time of stability seems to be 8 hours I have changed the "Phase 1 SA life time" and "Phase 2 SA life time" to 28800 both at the same time and individually - This seemed to have no effect.
The current configuration on the RV082 are: Local security gateway type: IP Only IP address: (local ISP provided static IP address)
My RVS4000 router freezes up when a lot of data is being pushed through the Ipsec tunnel. Let me explain in detail.
On physical location A, I have an RVS4000 router (with IP 192.168.3.1) which is permanently connected with a WRVS4400 router (with IP 192.168.1.1) on physical location B. The Ipsec tunnel has been configured using the Easy Setup Wizard of Cisco and has been working fine and stable for months. Both routers have another Ipsec tunnel with another WRVS4400 router (with IP 192.168.2.1) on physical location C, but this router does not play a role in the problem below.Recently, I’m trying to set up a remote backup service between physical location A and B using “rsync”, which uses port 873. Due to the Ipsec/VPN tunnel, I could configure rsync to move the backup files from our NAS on location A (NAS has IP 192.168.1.2) directly to location B (NAS has IP 192.168.3.2). Both NAS-devices are of the brand Synology (DS211J). The Ipsec tunnel guarantees that the data is coded and thus secure.
However, when pushing the first batch of data, I noticed that the router on the receiving end (RVS4000) freezes up after approx. 1,5h after the batch has started, which is after approx. 1 gigabyte of data has been transmitted. The connection with the WAN is lost, also the VPN-tunnel is not working, I cannot ping the device or reach its configuration pages (on 192.168.3.1), the only option is unplugging it and letting it reboot. I’m thinking the router cannot deal with the huge amount of data that needs to be decoded. I tried 5/6 times, with always the same result (timing / amount of data pushed through before router freezes varies slightly).
i have an ipsec tunnel between two rv082 routers. (1 v3 Hardware and the other with v2). On both devices are the latest firmware installed.
Everything working fine, the routers establish an ipsec connection but after about two hours, the router with hw version 3 freezes.... nor the wan neither der lan interface is pingable. I can only pull out the power cord. Below attached are the ipsec settings. It´s a Gateway to Gateway connection
I'm using two WRV210 Linksys Cisco Routers to create a tunnel between two places with a pppoe adsl internet connection.I made several tests with new 2.xxx and old 1.7xx firmware, and nothing changes.Try to reset to factory defaults, and nothing changes.I have two problems:
1) The router crashes after a time working, usualy around 24 hours, sometimes more, sometimes less. The lights still flashing, but nothing happens, no VPN traffic and no ping response from the router, and of course, no internet access. I could see just that the router works a bit hot, but, I think that is normal.
2) The VPN IPSEC was configured, and both configurations are identical. All value are the same, I am using the dyndns service. So, the VPN quickly connects and I can ping and access remote computers. Windows Folders, VNC, IT'S REALLY WORKS FULL. WORKS REALLY FINE. PERFECT.
BUT, when the router crashes, as I've told on problem 01, after remove the power cord and insert ir again, the VPN don't reconnect.On log's, I could see that it's say that has no preshared key. [code] But, it worked before. Nothing changes, nothing, the router just restarts. No configuration was lost, (I checked the VPN IPSEC TAB), but says that have no preshared key,The unique way to restablish the connection is go on the VPN IPSEC TAB, and change symetrical any configuration, as change MAIN MODE to AGGRESSIVE on both routers.So, now are as MAIN. Tomorow probably it will crash, so, I will have to restart both routers, and change to AGGRESSIVE. So, when it happens again, i will have to back to MAIN.
I installed QuickVPN v126.96.36.199 as it was in the download section on Linksys: [URL]
for the RV082 router we have. It connected but the program seemed buggy as there seemed to be no way to close the program after I used it so I wanted to uninstall it and install a more recent version of QuickVPN (side question: is it possible to VPN connect to my RV082 router with a different version of QuickVPN?).
I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit SP1 with all the latest updates. When I try to uninstall the program, at about the 25% mark of the window for 'QuickVPN Client Setup is preparing the InstallShield Wizard, which will guide you through the rest of the setup process. Please wait.' it seems to stop responding as holding the mouse over that windows just displayes a ring which goes round and round. I regret installing this buggy software on my PC.
San Antonio: Cisco RV120W Router Thin client devices connecting to Windows 2003 Server Okidata 3410 Dot Matrix printer with Dlink DP301P+ Print Server attached to Parallel Port
If a user sends a picking ticket larger than 6 or 7 pages (not really that much data) to the Okidata printer with the attached print server, the RV120W router will completely lock up. The connection between the two routers is lost, and the router must be physically rebooted. This behaviour is fairly consistent on the larger documents described. Pick tickets of less than 6 pages print without any issues. I've examined the data stream and see nothing of consequence in the larger documents. There is no effect on the Dallas router.
An IPSEC tunnel exists between the two routers. what could be causing the router to freeze?
I just bought an EA-4500 and i am having problems with rebooting the device. Every time I change a setting and the router reboots it never starts up again - and the logo LED doesn't flash, it is on constant. I have to cut the power and wait for about 15 minutes, and then it boots up fine - logo flashing and all.
My e4200v2 which I have been using for about 4 months locks up or freezes regularly - as often as once or twice a week. That is to say the wired laptop can't reach the router and the smart phone does not have a signal. This often happens when there is no phone or computer running. My current firmware is 2.0.37 and it just happened again. The logging capability is absolutely terrible so you can't tell why or when it went down, and what happened just before it went down. I pull the plug on power and when it comes back the log is clean. avoid the freezing/lockup or for logging incoming and outgoing with timestamps?
Since I've bought a new Cisco router last summer,, a Linksys E1200 (v.1 updated...) (always in the wireless mode), my laptop (Sony, Vaio VGN-NW110D) freezes when I stream videos online or when I use skype video calls. It sometimes freezes for a few minutes (in that case it's just really extremely slow and it sounds like a satanic robot), and then comes back (but does it again a few minutes later. Or sometimes, and this is more frequent with skype video calls, it completely freezes, and I have to reboot the hard way...This never happened to me before and I've been watching videos and video skyping for years. I have windows 7, service pack 1 (32 bits) now . I have windows 7 now, since about the same time I bought the router. But what makes me think its related to the router is that when I'm at work, or at my parents, or sisters, or boyfriend's house, this problem does NOT occure.... I don't know if this information could be relevant, but this does not happen when I make videos calls with skype on my iphone.
I was using the Sony Tablet with an earlier version of a linksys modem and everything worked fine. Since changing to the 4500 I have access to the network have full internet service and the anywhere from about 5 to 10 minutes later the internet freezes on the table and I have to reboot connection and the its fine for about another 5 to 10 minutes before it freezes again.
I have a DIR-600 (firmware 2.05) connected to internet and my computer. For a week or so, for some reason, there is a high number of SSDP messages on my internet cable (about 100/second). Probably a faulty equipment from the internet provider.
The problem is that this high traffic of SSDP messages cause the router to freeze, the instant I plug in the internet cable.
I have tried to block in the router firewall the address 188.8.131.52 on port 1900, but it get the error "invalid address". I have also disabled the Upnp function on the router, but without result.
How can I block these messages, so I can use my router again.
Connected to time warner we have a belkin 2.4ghz 802.11g g-router. The internet on the main desktop is on and used constantly all day, with 2 laptops and ipad used intermittently. Constantly thorughout the day the internet freezes up and has to be unplugged and restarted though there is no pattern to the freeze, perhaps only be the main desktop may be in use alone, perhaps all the above may be in use. Should I upgrade service from time warner or upgrade my older router.
I am having some problems with WRVS4400N v2.We use it just for wired network (wireless is not in use, but it is configured). As a WAN we use PPPoE. Most machines do not use DHCP.After a while (few hours to few days after power up) the router freezes and it is not accessible. I cannot ping it or access to the admin page.I have the latest firmware version (V1.00.09-ETSI)I also called service and they suggested to reset it to factory settings and reconfigure it.
I have been having a few problems with my IBM T42 Laptop for a while now. I was originally running Windows XP on this system and about 12 months ago I installed Ubuntu 9 on it to mess around a bit with the OS and have a basic, non-Microsoft laptop in the house that I could use for browing the web and IM, etc... The laptop needed a clean install anway as Windows XP was running like a dog. Originally it was dual boot but once I got happy with Ubuntu I did a clean install and everything worked reasonably well. I had a few issues with the wireless LAN adapter and compatibilty, but sorted it out following a few forums (firware updates, driver updates) and everything was great. I upgraded to the Ubuntu 10.04 OS and then started having some issues. Essentially my browser would freeze randomly. Again, I visted the forums and had no joy in sorting out the problem. I reverted the OS back to Ubuntu 9 and the problem persisted. So I gave up on it totally around 6 months ago.
Last week I fired up the laptop again and decided I would use the IBM restore utility and the disks I created a couple of years ago to put on a clean install of Windows XP and see how things went. So far I have done all the Windows XP updates (SP3, etc...), I have been to the Lenovo website and updated all drivers, firmware, BIOS, etc... every little problem I have had has been sorted with a software or firmware update which I have successfully implemented. All niggles have been sorted bar one.The only problem I have left now is very odd. Everything works fine and at reasonable speed considering the age and specs of my system. When I connect via cable to my router/modem all network and internet services work fine. I have had no issues. But when I connect via wireless, intermittently my system will completely freeze - no errors, no logs - nothing. No sounds, just frozen screen. Hard reboot is the only thing that I can do to get back online.Further investigating the issue - the freezing occurs when I click on a link to download something. I can browse anything - I have tried videos (youtube) and have no problems at all - but if I click to download a file (software upgrade pack, pdf document, Qucktime player) the system freezes up and ONLY when connected wirelessly via the inbuilt Cisco Wireless LAN adapter.

Region : Italy Model : TD-W8970 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 0.6.0 1.2 v000c.0 Build 130201 Rel.54921n ISP : Infostrada
My TD-W8970 freezes randomly, sometimes several times a day, sometimes less, but now the problem it's more frequent and I suppose it could be generated by some internal component that could have a abnormal behavior.Anyway, this happens in different situations, either using all the functionalist, or being only on and in idle state. Last time was few minutes ago, when all the system were shuttled down and only router was on.
Every time i plug in my adapter wusb600n and i got internet i go play black ops 2 my game and my whole pc freezes and if i do an other internet without the adapter and use a sitecom adapter or an linksys pci card everything works good but with the wusb600n i every time get freezes even when im not in game, my pc freezes every time and it is really good internet speed with this dual band adapter?
Region : Romania Model : TL-WR841ND Hardware Version : Firmware Version : 3.13.27 Build 121101 Rel.38183n ISP : cosmote
hardware version is WR841N v8.wireless works just fine. i use it for my smartphone and an old laptop. i use ethernet cable to connect to main computer where all is ok until i start using my bit torrent client. as soon as i build up traffic above 1MB the ethernet portion of the router freezes and needs a reboot. when frozen, wireless is still working and i still have access on the lan to the router via my browser. i got this router so i could have wifi for my phone. my old router (asus rx3041) worked just fine and i accessed my isp at the maximum speeds it would allow on a 60 gigabit connection.
I have d-link wireless router which is connected to the internet, also I have Linksys (WAG160Nv2) which i want to use it as access point by link it to D-link router using ethernet cable in order to use the wireless internet. D-link router settings shown below
I changed the settings of linksys router as shown below
the other day i set up a new internet connection and to set it up they sent me a WAG160Nv2 modem router and after hours of trying to get it working the technical support guy told me it cant be set up until the dsl led comes on, so what it being off means/how to get it to turn on?
The only thing I notice now is that channels 12 and 13 do not work properly. Setting the router to channels 12 and 13 basically sets the channel to something in the 1 - 11 range as seen by inSSIDer. This could be because the firmware I installed is the US version, which only has channels 1 - 11, but the EU version has channels 1 - 13. Normally this wouldn't be a problem but because there are a lot of wireless signals where I live, channels 1 - 11 are quite congested, so channel 13 was quite useful to me.I don't suppose anyone has a EU version of the WAG160NV2 2.00.17 firmware do they?Channels 12 and 13 worked fine with the EU version of the WAG160NV2 2.00.20 firmware but of course only at 2Mbps.
After installing a WMMP600N on an HP Pro 3410 (BIOS 7.04) the computer "freezes" after booting or doesn't boot at all. On the other hand, installing the same board on an HP (Compaq) DX2390 (BIOS 5.3) doesn't cause any problem: both the machine and the board work nicely together. Both machines run on Windows 7 Ultimate, with the latest driver from Linksys.
my WAG160Nv2 drops the connection each day at the same hour (4:20pm to 4:40pm aprox.)I think that is because my ISP don't give me a static IP address and the connection must dropped once a day. in my old router I could put the time for the drop. I don't find something similar in the WAG160Nv2.
Since i used this new modem ruoter, on facebook game Cafe WORLD i can't send requests or gifts to neighbors/friends. when the window pops out there's no friend list. it's just a blank space. also when i click the share button only a blank page pops out. i tried it in 3 different pc here @ home in different browser but still had no luck...i tried it on my bf's place and it works so i guess there's a prob with my connection. and sometimes i have the internet access but i couldn't navigate in any website only for chatting.
