Connecting Linksys E1000 To Existing Wired Router?
Feb 16, 2011
i need to connect a linksys e1000 to an existing dlink router. i have tried several solutions that i have found on the internet, but none have worked. i need DETAILED instruction tailored to e1000 specifically because i am having trouble with dhcp definitions as i have not done this in years. i can get it to work, but i have to maintain security and everything i have done still allows me through to dlink router.
I have an E1000 router and recently moved to a basement apartment where the only internet access comes from a single Ethernet cable running out of a router upstairs. I can connect to that network (it is family) but ideally I would like to connect my router and create a second network so that I can connect my printer and other devices independently of the upstairs network.
About 6 months ago I bought a new router (Linksys E1000 v2.1) which worked great right out of the box. A couple months later I tried to setup a home network so that my two laptops could access a shared drive on my wired desktop, but for some reason they didn't show up as being on the same network. All computers involved are running Windows 7 if that matters.
Upon a recommendation from I friend I put DD-WRT on the router and it worked fine. Setup MAC filtering and WPA2 Personal security. This worked fine for about 4 months until today.
When I got home from work today I noticed my laptop wouldn't pull up any web pages, but it said it was connected. Then I noticed my iPhone wasn't connected either. I restarted my laptop and then it wouldn't connect to the wireless either (I could see the wireless, but I would get a Could not Connect error when I tried to connect to it).
I went to my desktop and it is working just fine, it is plugged into the back of the router. I also have an AT&T MicroCell (cell phone booster) that is plugged in to the back of the router and it works fine too.
I removed the encryption and MAC filtering. I then reset to factory (or "factory" DD-WRT) and now the wireless works, but it is MUCH slower than my desktop. I ran a speedtest on my desktop and got 12 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up. On my laptop, I get 0.03 Mbps down and 0.25 Mbps up.
I just want to allow specified computers wired access to the internet via the E1000 router. Here is the problem I am currently working on:
(1) Setup the E1000 unit to allow only one PC 'C1' (MAC: 91:E6:BA:25:91:58) wired access to the internet.
(2) Add another PC (unknown MAC address) to the LAN side of the E1000 unit and see if it is being blocked by the 'Access Restriction' policy that was setup.
(3) Can’t get the above done – the second PC is able to surf the internet although the policy is enabled.
Notes:(a) Ref: 'Access Restrictions' web page or see Page 26 in the User Guide .(b) The unit has the latest firmware already installed: Firmware Version: 2.1.01 build 5Dec 3, 2010.(c) The internet port of the unit goes to the ADSL modem in my house.(d) Unplugged the unit for 10 seconds as advised by one of your technicians, still no difference.(e) I can deny PCs, but the allowing only specified ones seems not to be doing anything.By the way, can the E3000 or E4200 do the above?
I have a Comcast Router pushing out IP's in the 10.1.10.X range. I want to hookup a Linksys E1000 Router so I can use its wireless & Guest access features. The Linksys is using the 192.168.1.x range. I have a cable from the comcast router running into the Internet port of the Linksys. I have tried changing the Linksys router IP to 10.1.10.x and turning off DHCP. It will not allow me to the internet nor allow the PC connected to it to connect to the PC that is attached to the Comcast Router. I cannot replace the Comcast as it is a combi router/modem.
why I am only able to connect at 39Mbps (often 5.5Mbps) to my Linksys E1000 Router? Residential. Wood Frame/Stick home construction. No other devices connected to router. <10 feet from E1000 Router. Line of sight (nothing in between router/laptop). New Dell Inspiron DW 1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card.
E1000 Network Mode: Mixed Channel Width: Auto (20MHz or 40MHz) Firmware: 2.0.01 build 08
At times I have seen it flash to 52Mbps but immediately drops to 39Mbps or lower (26, 5.5, etc.).Sales prop indicates up to 300Mbps. Where is the other 90% of the connection speed they’re talking about? OR is 39Mbps expected?
I've been experiencing a strange, repeatable behavior with my Linksys E1000. I have several wireless and wired devices connected to my E1000:
Wired: TivoHD, Sony BluRay Player, Sony TV, Windows XP Wireless: Lenovo Laptop (Windows 7), HP Laptop (Windows 7), 3 iPods, 2 iPhones
When I try to copy large files (~ 4GB) from my (wired) Windows XP box to either of my (wireless) laptops, the Linksys drops my WiFi network -- but the wired connections continue to work (including internet access). Copying the same/similar file from a WiFi device to a wired device appears to work correctly, as does copying from WiFi to WiFi.
To be clear, my WiFi network "disappears" -- it is no longer listed as an available network (as opposed to just dropping internet connectivity for WiFi). Unplugging the router and plugging it back in brings my WiFi network back up.
I have been able to repeat this issue with multiple files over the course of several weeks, and it happens about 75% of the time (i.e., I am occassionally able to complete a file copy from wired LAN to WiFi).
A little bit of background: I resurrected an old Windows XP box and am using it for shared network storage. I copied about 400 GB of files from my laptops to the XP box (WiFi to wired) with no issues at all. Pulling the same files back from XP to my laptops (wired to WiFi) has been causing the issue described above.
I'm trying to connect my Nook Tablet to my wireless E-1000 router. I'm using a cable connnection for internet service. THe nook will find the network indicating "excellent" signal , but when it goes to authenticate it disconnects. After reading about WEP security, I switchedecurity setting of the Cisco router to "WPA Personal". Results are the same.
I have a Linksys E1000 router just upgrade to the latest 220.127.116.11 firmware...I have a PPPoE connection which used to run smoothly on the router..however off late...suddenly the router stopped connecting..it always shows "connecting" in the status tab of the router page...and eventually says failed to obtain IP address...however when I attach the cable directly into my PC it works just fine.I also had a word with my internet provider...he's kept the MAC open (or something like that) so he said that isn't the issue and he keeps saying there must be some issue with the router. However, occasionally the router DOES connect for half hour or so and then just refuses to connect again !..
I've got an issue with my router. The Linksys E1000.In my opinion it supports the Wireless-N mode, so does my wireless lan card which is the Atheros AR5B93 (also known as the Acer Nplify 802.11 b/g/n). When I connect to the router, it only connects in normal wireles mode, so no b,g or n mode. But when I look at the Client Tabel of the router all other devices connected to the router are in Wireless-G mode. Even my laptop doesn't connect in Wireless-G mode.I want to have my laptop connected in Wireless-N mode. What do I have to do, to make this working?
My wife has a home office with her office computer connected to our modem via a cisco router. Our home computer is connected via this router as well. I want to add a wireless router (netgear) so I can use my laptop anywhere in the house.
Small office, 2 RV042, 2 DSL connections. 1 is used striclty for the business side, and the other is for our CCTV network. They also have seperate DSL connections as we have 2 external IP address for clients to connect remotely. We don't want to take away our exisring setup, but would like to bridge both networks so a few of our internal clients can connect to our CCTV network and use some of the devices. Right now they come in on VPN but its not as fast.Is this doable without adding additional hardware? Both networks need DHCP enable as well.
Final results are that if I hard ware connect my computer to my PS3 I can acces Media Servers.When connected through the router though my computer acknowledges the PS3, it cannot connect to Media Servers.I have the Linksys BEFSR41 v4.3.
I've installed a RV042 and my terminals cant even ping each other. They have Internet, but they cannot ping each other, or open network shares. It is not a dns problem becouse it does not work with the IP.
I bought a Cisco Linksys RV042 (Firmware Version: 18.104.22.168-tm) a month ago. I installed it with two Cable Modems (Webstar DPC2100R2) from the same internet provider and with the same individual bandwidths for the two of those. My setup is Dual Wan mode since I only bought this device for load balancing the traffic through the two WAN connections. I need to clone both WAN MAC addresses on the router ports in order to get connected to my ISPs provisioning server. The RV042 has no issues getting a connection on WAN1 when MAC cloning has been made on this port, however, when I clone (user define, different from WAN1) MAC address for WAN2, this port never gets a connection and stays on IP 0.0.0.0 all the time.
I’ve tried factory reset, reloading the latest firmware (which already came pre-installed), switch modems from WAN1 to WAN2 and vice versa, disabling Firewall, turning on and off the ports on Port Management tab, changing SmartLink to Load Balance mode, enabling and disabling Network Service Detection, DHCP vs. Static IP on WAN ports, manual setup, setup through the wizard.
Nothing seems to make WAN2 port function correctly with the User Defined MAC address. The only way to make it work is using the factory (default) MAC address on WAN2, then it gets the IP address from the modem. Again, WAN1 works correctly with a user defined MAC address same as with Default MAC address enabled.I have read endless customer’s posts having the same issue from several years ago in this Community Forum and all over the web, and none of them have had a definite solution to the problem from the manufacturer.
At work we have an existing wireless network with with a lot of wireless pc's and devices connected to it.. We want to however connect 2 desktop pc's to the same network so that they have internet access also. These 2 desktops have been connected to the wireless router via wireless dongles, but due to some office arrangements we have to move them to a different office in the building where there is network ports available.I plugged in a D-Link 5-port Gigabit desktop switch to the network point in the office the 2 desktop pc's are moving to and tested it with my laptop (with wireless disabled) to see if everything is working.The LAN seems to be working fine, but when I want to connect to the internet.. it seems something is wrong.
I'm trying to connect my Cisco lab to the internet. I've configured my 2611 to accept DHCP. I can ping the Linksys E1000 router but can't ping the modem on the other side, and cannot get out to the internet with the PC that's connected to the lab. When I look at the DHCP table in the E1000 the 2611 shows up in the table. I can ping all other computers on the lan, just not the modem to get out to the net.I have the configuration for the 2611. Did I miss something. Is the modem blocking ICMP traffic?

I recently swapped out an RV082 with a newer model (still RV082 but black and a different interface). I configured the Gateway to Gateway VPN exactly as it was before but none of the three other RV082's will connect. I have tried deleting the connections several times to no avail. I have aggressive mode disabled and have tried with the firewall on and off. Below are the settings (IP's have been X'd out) and the log.

I currently have a wired network which starts with a cable router downstairs which is a virgin media netgear box with firewall and DHCP turned on. I have a NAS server and a smart tv which run off ethernet connections to this router.then have a cable run upstairs to a TPlink gigabit switch which is connected to a PC and a printer (in my study). All this works just fine, no configuration needed.I have a TPlink wireless router, a TL-WR743ND. I want to use this to connect to the switch upstairs (not downstairs - my stone walls limit any wireless access point) to provide wireless network coverage for my house.So I figured I should configure it with a dynamic IP address (ie it gets it from the netgear DHCP), turn off the TPLink's DHCP and firewall, and then any wireless devices attached to the TPLink by wireless should have access to printer and NAS
I have an existing network in a 300 year old structure. There is a base router from which there are 3 wired (ethernet) lines to parts of the structure. Due to the structure itself (near 2 ft thick walls - masonry) the wireless from the base router reaches only a short distance. I would like to "extend" the wireless reach using those 3 existing runs. So - can I add 3 more routers or should I go with Wireless Access Points or what else would work?
Okay we have the router downstairs with a powerline ethernet on the firs and second floors so we can get the net.
Our house must be made of lead or something, because I very rarely get a decent wireless signal which stays consistant. Because of this I wanted to connect my laptop though the powerline but for some reason it doesn't work.
When I plug in the network cable it just hangs on identifying for a minute or so then comes up with "unidentified network" saying its connected, but has no access to the router, the internet etc etc.
Connecting the laptop directly works fine however. I've also attempted plugging the laptop in via a usb / ethernet connector, but that still hasn't given any results with the exact same issue. When i run ipconfig /all this is what comes up.

I have a linksys wrt54g router. i need to block all devices except one from plugging in a wired device into the back of the router. i tried the mac filtering, but i didnt work. Is that for wireless only?I can also block local ips (192.168.1.x), and was going to go that route and only allow my local computer but i was afraid if i restarted my router or computer the ip would change and i would be locked out.
I recently borrowed a friend's desktop and I am having issues with connecting with the router through an ethernet cable. I go to troubleshoot the problem and I get "Local Area Connection 2 doesn't have a valid IP configuration". Its nothing with the router because when I plug my laptop in with the same ethernet cable, I am able to connect perfectly.
I purchased and set-up the EA4500 on Thursday. Friday my ISP (Charter) was out and worked on connection for over 2 hours due to slowness issues. Connected directly to modem I get normal ping times on whichever computer is connected. When I get the computer connected by the router (hard wired) I get very long ping responses up to 900ms. They are all over the place 30ms (I can live with that), up to the 900's. I contacted Linksys support last night, who had me update to the cloud firmware and change MT U to 1300, have not noticed a difference. I did end up doing a hard reset on the router last night after I lost tech support. We were disconnected with router rebooted, and I didn't have the patience to connect again last night.
It was so slow on my work computer, a pint to yahoo timed out. The computers connecting to router are
