Cisco Routers :: Workgroup Accessibility With RV220W
Apr 30, 2013
I'm using a RV220W in my home office. Before this router I was. using a Sitecom router which did not cause any problems. I have setup a home network. The RV220W connects to the provider modem. The client components connect to the RV220W. Which acts as DHCP gateway. The DHCP features of the modem are disabled. I have assigned all network client devices to the same workgroup. I have to windows 7 PC's. one of them acts as fileserver. when trying to acces it from the other fixed PC or via a laptop the fileserver is visible but not accessable. I can not open it and access the shared folders.It has worked for a brief moment, but without changing any settings it stop working. I have never had accessability problems with the sitecom router. I have installed the latest firmware and tried rebooting the router several times. I have also started again with the factory defaults.
Query regarding the Cisco WRVS4400N and Valet M10 routers. How to block the web interface (router login page) from wireless accessibility?
-Our Business is a hotel, so untrusted intruders are our guests. -Our ISP seeks hotspot methods that we cannot implement. -Our only solution is routers and an AP to extend internet wirelessly.
the login page or configuration page of the router is always accessible via the gateway address.if the gateway is 192.168.1.1, then a guest can just enter this address and try to guess the password. hacking tools add to the problem.the LAN is working but it is not of certification standards.I seek a way to block wireless access to the gateway login page or physical access only.
I am setting up a NAS on my home network. My computer sees it on the network and accesses it without a problem. My wife's computer, however, only sees it on the network, but will not access it. (Both computers are Win 7 machines.) It will access it if I type in the ip address of it, but that is beyond my wife's patience level for her to do each time she wants to access the storage. She can, however, access the shared folders on my computer and vice versa. Both computers go through the same router. The NAS is connected to another router attached to the main router (extending it since we ran out of slots on the main one). Both routers are Linksys (1 is E3000).
First , I have installed the router and modem correctly , and i connected it to the switch , So the other devices connected to the internet but not connected to the workgroup so i can't share the files between the PC's ? Modem >>> Router >>> Switch >>> PC's
I have a building with 30+ pc's, printers and cameras. I do not have a "server" setup, however I want them to be connected to the T1 line comming into the building for internet as well as file sharing, etc.Currently, I have the T1 line connecting to as Linksys E3000 wireless router. From there I have a cable connected to the wireless router (it has 4 ports also) and then going to a Netgear FS524 (24 Port 10/100 MBPS Fast Ethernet Switch) via port number 24. I then have another CAT5 cable connected to a port on this switch, extending to a D-Link DES-1024D (another 24 Port, 10/100 switch)I then have the 30+ CAT5 cable coming into all three of said devices... No then, I get Internet connection on all units, the problem is that I cannot see all of the devices.
I work in a school department and wanted to hardwire two computers in my class using a workgroup switch. I only had one data port in my class. The tech guy told me the switch could cause the entire network to crash. Is that true? I thought a switch was just a passthrough device.
I am trying to setup and configure a VPN on the RV220W that uses IPSEC so I can use the Cisco VPN Client I use at work, I have gone through the user manual 11 or 12 times now but still cannot work it out. I cannot find where on the Rv200W iset up the phase 1 authentication username and password which will then lead me onto the phase 2 stage of asking for a username password to allow me access.
Picked up a pair of RV220W's for a project I'm working on. I have several IP's available, 4 of which are assigned to/in use by a server behind the RV220W. All 4 of these IP's are static external IPs. How I can configure the RV220W so that requests to those 4 IP's get routed to the server.
Prior to purchasing this, I was under the impression what I was trying to do was called one-to-one NAT, but after reading the 'Help' document on the one-to-one NAT page, I don't think this is right. Emphasis added below: Cisco RV220W Wireless-N Network Security Firewall Help FirewallOne-to-One NATOne-to-one NAT is a way to make systems behind a firewall and configured with private IP addresses appear to have public IP addresses.One-to-One-NAT Rule TableThis table lists the list of available One-To-One NAT rules configured by the user. Private Range Begin: start ip address in private (LAN) ip addressPublic Range Begin: start ip address in the public ip address (WAN IP), Public IP Subnet Mask: The Subnet Mask of the public IPRange Length: Range length maps one to one private address to public address up to the given range.Service: This column shows service to be accepted by LAN Host.The actions that can be taken on One-to-One-NAT rules are:(Check Box At First Column Header): Selects all the entries in the table.Add: Opens the One-To-One NAT Configuration page, to add a new entry. Edit: Opens the One-To-One NAT Configuration page, to edit the selected entry.Delete: Deletes the selected entries.
So according to their documentation, the server in question would need to be configured with a private IP. Unfortunately, one of the applications I use is licensed via IP address and my understanding is that I cannot use the software with private/non-routable IP addresses.
Is the RV220W capable of not only securing the line (firewall, access rules, content filtering, port trigering & forwarding etc) but also doing what I was hoping to do (keeping the external IP's on the server, and routing appropriately)?
I'm using a RV220W router, and recently got shifted to a dynamic IP solution.Now, I've got a no-ip.org address, but the update service seems to be on no-ip.com. So, I try to enter mydomain.no-ip.org OR mydomain.no-ip.com in the dynamic dns settings, under Host and Domain Name, but when saving the settings it says
'The hostname specified does not exist in this user account' ,which seems to indicate that it manages to login to the update service but gets a negative reply.Is it possible to use the RV220W with no-ip.org/com?
We have 2 sites connected thru 2 RV220W routers via VPN and most things are working fine. I have noticed however, that any device that has a web interface, i.e. our Sharp Copier and our Freenas server, is inaccessible. The page tries to come up but then I get the Cisco "server is down" page generated by the RV220W.
I can pull up the web interface pages if I use a machine on the local LAN but not on any machine across the VPN. The only commonality I can think of is the RV220W blocking that traffic for some reason..
Is there anyway to associate a name to an IP in the RV220W? I am coming from a WRVS4400N v2. Folks are complaining that they can't connect, for example via Real VNC, via the PC name any longer. They have to use the IP address. In the past I put the names of the PCs in the WRVS4400N when I reserved IPs via MAC addresses (some call this assigning static IPs). There isn't any place in the RV220W to put the name. Even when I look at the DHCP list a lot of them show up as "unknown". I am sure this is a NETBIOS thing but I'd rather fix this in the router as I have always done in the past.
i have a RV220W and absolutely nothings functional on this stupid Router, no NAT , no Port Forwarding and I cant access my Network from Outside. Any firmware link for downloading. This address works, its handling special webrequest.
I set up a PPTP VPN with an RV220W recently. It was working flawlessly until a recent power outage and now users are getting the 807 error when attempting to connect. I have PPTP passthrough enabled and TCP/UDP 1723 open. As far as I can tell GRE 47 is open as well. Why it was working and is not working after a power outage?
Having a strange problem that just started this week and got worse this evening. I have a RV220W that is feeding my network. The RV220W sits behind a broadband modem and acts as the DHCP for the network and those computers access the internet that way. Anyway, tonight started an issue where the the RV220W just disappears. Becomes unpingable. I recycle power, and within anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes, it's gone. No longer pingable. Even if I plug a latop directly into it.If I power cycle the RV220W it comes back and I can ping it and access it and its settings. 5 to 10 mins later, I again lose it. Nothing was done. Its been working fine for a few weeks. Had a similar outage last Tuesday, but a recycle of everything brought everything back into line. After I lose connection to it, the lights I expect to be lit remain lit.
When someone downloads a file, or similar, there seems to be no, or very little, room for other requests. I've even tried to be the only one on the network, start a download (from ex. Intel) and then tries to access a simple website, almost only text, and its extreemly slow. I hav ethe latest firmware, a windows domain network and the routers is not acting as dhcp server.
I'm an IT professional with more than 10 years experience. I have spent last 5 days trying to figure out why the wifi connection to this router is so slow, but still no luck. I'm getting only 13Mbps even if my laptop is next to the router! (wired connection worked ok)
I have tried all sort of setting combinations, 2.4GHz/5GHz; N only/ G,N Mixed; Auto/20MHz bandwidth; different channels; WPA2 encrypted vs open; disable firewall; wmm enabled/disabled; 22.214.171.124/126.96.36.199 firmware... no matter what I try, I always get only 10 - 15Mbps speed.
Once I replace this router with my old router, it worked perfectly --- getting 70 - 80Mbps with exactly the same testing environment and configuration.
I really expect this router to offer much faster wireless speed according to this review: [URL]
I have a cisco RV220W router used in a home environment. Recently I purchased a Siemens Gigaset A 580 IP phone. It works OK so far but I would like to optimize the configuration for VoIP traffic and apply QoS for VoIP on this router. Any guide with the recommended configuration and preferred settings of the same? I have not used QoS previously
I have an Cisco RV220W and I can’t connect to web interface. The router is new, I receive the error in Mozilla: Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). I used also Internet Explorer, Chrome , I tried to disable SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0 but the problem persist. The PC obtained IP address from the router, I have ping on it ,also the SSID is up with open network I reset to factory default but the problem persist.
I recently installed a new 220W with the sole intention of setting up the PPTP server. I got the router installed and working but cannot get the PPTP server working. Also when i configure a block of IP address from my lan for the server it tells me i cannot use that subnet? i have set it up this way with other routers ( RV042 ) with no issues.
I do you not think the RV220W needs to have better E-mail support that the feature it supports at present?No SSL support at all. The only setting for authentication is: Login Plain or CRAM-MD5. Every mail server I use now, supports SSL as the default authentication and not CRAM or Plain, this makes the E-mail feature useless. [code]
I'm trying to setup this router with my IP range 192.168.100.1 to 192.168.101.254 but if I try to enter a subnet mask other than 255.255.255.0 I get the error - Invalid subnet mask. It should be 255 for given class of IP address at 255.255.xxx.0.
Every other device on my network allows that subnet mask, why not this router, it's stopping access from my 192.168.101.x devices.
I have 5 public, static IP's provided by my ISP. I read on another page that to use the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th IPs, I must first 'register' them by entering them on the WAN page and I must wait until I can successfully PING them from an external network. Then I can set the WAN IP back to the one I want to use to administer the router. Then I can use those other IP's on the various Access Rules or Port Forwarding pages where there is a spot to enter 'alternate WAN IP address'. I'm trying to determine if this is true because I'm having a heck of a time getting port forwarding to work. My BIOS is 188.8.131.52.
I'm relatively new to establishing VPN connections and I'm having one heck of a time getting everything configured.I'm setting up a RV220W at the office and trying to get VPN steup. I've have gotten Quick VPN connections working using the QuickVPN software. I've given up for now on IPsec VPN connactions and will come back to these later.What I'd like to get setup is the SSL VPN connections using the Win7 built in VPN client. Is this even possible? I initially tried to connect to the VPN via the SSL Web access but I cannot get the software/divers to install on any of the 3+ Win7 64 bit machines I tried.So can the SSL VPN on the RV220W be setup to connect to with the Win7 VPN Client using SSTP?
Just purchased an RV220W for a customer to replace a WRVS4400N that had no support for One-to-One NAT and have found the One-to-one NAT for this router is only marginally better.
I have three WAN addresses and three devices to map them to. With the RV0xx I've used the following configuration over a dozen times.
WAN Address 1 - the router's public address Port forward HTTP, HTTPS, and SMTP to Windows Small Business Server 2011 Email and Remote Web Access are accessible at remote.company.com
WAN Address 2 One-to-one NAT to private IP address of Ubuntu Server Add the following access rules: Deny allAllow HTTP from any to private IP address of serverAllow SSH from my company's static IP to private IPAllow FTP from my company's static IP to private IPCompanies website is accessible at company.com and I can update the website with SSH and FTP
WAN Address 3 One-to-one NAT to private IP address of the Hyper-V server's Intel RMM module (Lights out remote management) Add the following access rules: Deny allAllow HTTP, HTTPS, and all RMM ports from my company's static to the RMM modules private IPI can access server at rmm.company.com from my companies network connection
My problems are as follows:
The One-to-one NAT option now requires you to specify the service you'd like to forward (Note: service, not services)If you select the Any service which is the only way I can see to have more than one service, there is no way to add any specific Allow or Deny rules because the Destination box is grayed out on the access rules page.This results in my Ubuntu server only having HTTP forwarded to it and my RMM module having all ports opened up to any IP address. There must be some way around this! I don't understand why the Destination IP option is greyed out for all Inbound access rules. I have been using this same configuration with the Cisco RV0xx, many Sonicwall firewalls, as well as several Cisco ASAs. Obviously this is not an ASA but this implementation of One-to-one NAT is useless!
the 2nd one is for all guests and it's isolated from the lan+trusted(1st one) with a vlan feature.
the 1st one is for all trusted devices over wifi. the wifi channel is setup to allow mac addresses of the two asante security cameras. the cameras upload videos to an ftp on my server. the two will connect to the router at first, I can ping them or see them in 'my network'. give it a little time and they disappear. then I have to power off/on the router or the cameras to make them work for a few minutes. the process repeats.
the cameras make lots of connections to the ftp server. I'm suspecting they're flooding the router and it blocks them. occasionaly they will come back for a minute or two and disappear again as if blocked/unblocked.
I added their mac addresses in hopes of making them 'trusted' devices. I've tried them on both ssids. I checked and unchecked firewall/security checks and icsa settings. all other devices I tried, multiple phones and laptops work without problems on both ssids and they don't get blocked.
I have and D-Link modem which is bridged and a PPPoAPPPoE profile set up on the RV220W for my ADSL2+ connection.I cannot for the life of me find anywhere in the routers config web pages to tell the modem to disconnect or reconnect the connetion to the ISP.The reason I want this is because I need to make sure the correct signaling is sent before the connection is stopped so that the exchange doesnt see this as a drop out and reduce our line speed to compensate.
