I've got an Asus RT-N56U router. Attached to the router is a USB hard disk with a bunch of music on it. The music is accessible to devices on my LAN over uPnP/DLNA; this works great. My WAN connection is provisioned at 100 Mbps down / 40 Mbps up. I want to use some of that upstream bandwidth to stream my music to myself wherever I happen to be. I could but don't want to leave a server running on my network 24/7 to accomplish this when the router is already able to share the content locally.
So what I want is some way to make the content that the router is already able to distribute across the LAN accessible over the Internet as well. I've looked around but haven't found any prebuilt solutions to this that don't involve hosting the content on a server behind the router, which I'd like to avoid.
The router does have built-in support for serving up the content over FTP, but I've tried that and found that it really does not play well with media players. It kind of works, but the seek time when switching between tracks is absurd, and some tracks just plain fail.
One thought I've had is serving up the content over HTTP by installing an Apache instance on the router (and/or editing the configuration of the built-in instance that provides the configuration portal, if that's possible?). The router appears to run some trimmed-down version of Linux (I can telnet/ssh into it, it has a filesystem, package manager, and similar things).
We have an Asus RT-N56U router at home, which is connected directly to a cable modem. I am attempting to remotely access the router's interface, and am having trouble doing so even after configuring it properly. I configured the router's firewall to allow remote access, using port 8080. I also set up DDNS, although I tried connecting using both the IP and the DDNS name.I also set the router to respond to pings, and I am able to successfully ping the router (from a remote location) using both the DDNS name and the public IP. But when attempting to connect using my browser, it doesn't work. I have tried multiple browsers, multiple remote locations, and disabling my computer's firewall, all with no success.
I use to have a DIR-655 and dap-1522 both worked without any issues. I recently upgraded to Asus RT-n56u and now I want to setup the dap-1522 with it.I have no issues with the Asus RT-n56u everything seems to work fine here the problem seems to be with the dap-1522 where it connects but then disconnects almost instantly.
1) Connect dap-1522 with my desktop computer via Ethernet
2) Change the LAN settings for tcp/ip v4 to manual IP
3) I set the manual IP to 192.168.0.60/ subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway to 192.168.0.50
4) I open my web browser and connect to 192.168.0.50 and I see the dlink page and I log in fine.
5)I tried going through the wizard, picked manual and have tried both the 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz bands they are set up as WPA-Auto Personal and I enter in my password. It says settings will be saved
6) The page refreshes to the wireless one but I don't see any options here just the save config one. When I go to status sometimes it says its connected but sometimes it just says it's not I try to unplug from my desktop and take it over to where my apple tv is but it never works..One thing I should note is my asus is connected to 192.168.1.X so do I need to change the dap-1522 to 192.168.1.50? instead of 0.50?
I am unable to set router's (RT-N56U) IP adress to default one (192.168.1.1), or any other in subnet 1. It always popum message to me which says "IP adress 192.168.1.1 is not a valid adress". Also when I restart device it automaticaly sets its IP to 192.168.2.1. I have static IP which is translated to IP in subnet 1 so I need this working. The router is in "Wireless router mode (Default)"
3 times in the last 2 hours i have had my new rt-n56u give me the message.You have set the wrong dynamic or static IP address for your RT-N56U.
So i reset the router and it pulls the same IP and info it had before from my ISP.Doing some reading it seems some people have had this issue occur over and over.I am upgrading to the new Asus184.108.40.206i from 220.127.116.11f which is installed now, but wanted to ask if i have other options for this router as this problem gets annoying..Example i am used to DD-WRT for my linksys wrt- models..does the NT56U have something similar...
I have had the Asus working with a netgear CVG824G(in unison, not bridged) for some time with IP cam & usb media, but no DNS access as running through the netgear gateway. I just upgraded to Optus premium speed pack & received a netgear CG3000 & now can't find the Asus when plugged into CG3000 ethernet port. I have tried to plug it in the same as it was so I could access the asus routers page & change settings to bridge but find nothing. When I try to connect wirelessly to it, the security key is not accepted. Have tried original key and '�dmin'' all with no use. I want it to run bridged to make use of the DNS service with IP cam & attached media
I have the printer hooked up to the USB port on the router (Asus RT-N56U), and in the router GUI, it recognizes the printer but when I set the printer up on my computers, they seem to not want to connect, or if they do it won't print anything for a few minutes after clicking "print." Is this just one printer that's going to have issues printing through the router?
I've tried both USB ports, and a couple different cables.USB flash memory works just fine and is quick, like it's plugged straight into a computer.Ironically, I bought this router to replace my file/print server.
i replaced a lightning damaged Linksys router in my home network with the RT-N56U. My main computer is Win7 64, (Phenom II quad, asus M490GTD) , my wife's computer(wired connection, Dell P5Duo) and my work laptop (wireless connection HP core I5) are XP. I have a USB printer attached to the wife's computer and two wireless Squeezebox receivers. This network worked with the old router. With the new router i can access internet from all computers, and connect to the new network with the Squeezeboxes. I cannot print from the main computer, even though the printer shows up in the devices window and the test page spools.
I'm trying to connect a Sony Vaio laptop with Windows Vista to my wireless network. It connects to the network just fine but it says "Unidentified network" and I'm unable to surf any websites using any browser. It connects with an ethernet cable just fine and I've already updated the driver for my wireless card.Who is your Internet Service Provider (ISP): Time Warner.What type of Broadband connection are you using: Cable.What is the exact Make and Model of your Modem, Router or Modem/Router Combo: ASUS RT-N56U router / Cisco DPC2100R2 modem.What is the Name of the Anti-Virus, Security or Firewall Software:.

I bought an ASUS Black Diamond Dual Band Wireless-N 600 Router (RT-N56U) to upgrade from my older router but I'm having a problem: It won't connect to my cable modem (via the WAN ethernet port), so I can't connect to the internet. [URL]
When I connect the router to my computer via ethernet cable, the light on the ethernet port of the router comes on (an orange LED light), but when I connect my cable modem (or computer) to the the router through the WAN ethernet port, the WAN port's LED does not come on at all and I keep getting an error message on my browser saying that I need to make sure the ethernet cable is connected.
I've tried three different ethernet cables, including the one that came with the router, with no luck (WAN LED lights never come on, so I assume that this means that there is no activity at all). I've also tried cloning the MAC address, restoring to factory default, updating the routers firmware, and holding the reset button on the modem for 15 seconds, among other things.
Also, something that might be worth noting: While one end is connected to my modem, if I plug the ethernet cord into one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router, the green LED instantly turns on but, as I said before, there's no activity when plugged into the WAN port. My modem is an Arris TM052G (DOCSIS 2.0) provided by my ISP, Time Warner Cable.
I've got a relative that needs a wireless solution for their new HD LCD. The spouse has vetoed running cat-5 (I'd have told her to pound sand...) so we're looking for an inexpensive router that we can install dd-wrt on and throw it in bridge mode. The Linksys wrt54g seems to have dried up in the area, no one seems to have one in stock and I haven't had any luck finding an Asus RT-N12 that I can get delivered in a timely fashion, that would have been my second pick.
Any recommendation for a fairly inexpensive G/N router that either features a robust bridge mode or that I can flash for this project?

dosen't support my huawei E392 4G modem. if possible would you make bin for this. there is not other modems that you can get for 4G connections from the service provider so it would be nice if there was more compatibility than some old ancient modems. starts to feel like this is been sold as 4G router and dosen't actually support that at all.

does any one know if the new sierra 320u 4g bigpond modem will work with the tl-mr3040 battery wifi router, and does it handle the 100mbs speed, also how relyable are these routers, and what is its range.
I have been using broadband in my laptop using asus wireless router/modem DSL-N10E for last 2 months but with Ethernet cable plugged in. I have never used its wifi function. I tried today but was unable to connect after entering security passwordWhen look for troubleshoot it says "There might be problem with the drivers for the wireless network connection adapters"
I just got set up with time warner, and the modem they gave me (Ubee DDW3611) also has a built in router. I already have an Asus RT-N15 running DD-WRT, and this is what I want to use as my router.
If I connect the Asus router to the Ubee router, is my Asus router going to take control? It appears as though it's handeling DCHP, but what about things like port forwarding? Am I going to run into trouble by having both routers? Is there any settings I should make in the Ubee router, or just leave it be?
I've got a ASUS AC66 router plugged into my Comcast cable modem (regular dumb modem), it's running the Merlin (OEM-modified) firmware.I've got a Netgear 3400 router flashed with DD-WRT (latest build), it's a replacement for another N router that died on me.
Anyways, I went to set client bridge like always. Main router is 192.168.1.1 so I set DD-WRT router as 192.168.1.2, set the wireless modes to client bridge with matching SSIDs for my 2.4/5GHz radios, input the correct security keys on the security page (AES), then I put the router in router mode (from gateway) Basically, I followed the instructions on DD-WRT's website, which worked perfectly until the other router died.
This time around as soon as the DD-WRT router reboots with its bridge information saved it immediately causes some sort of conflict on my network and kills the internet and all network connections. All devices lose their IP address. It's like the DD-WRT router is somehow shutting down the network and my default router.
I am using a USB Modem from HUAWEI Technologies to use internet when im not on a wifi zone.. The Internet Speed is kinda slow (512 kbps), so I configured my browser to go through a proxy to make it a lil bit faster (2mbps now)..Everything works fine except that I couldn't connect to https sites (gmail, facebook, eBay, etc)
I am connected to the internet using a Huawei wireless USB modem connected to my desktop computer(no other type of service available) I would like to set up a Wifi home network so that I can connect using Wifi to all of the other gadget that I have in the house. So the question is can I connect a Wifi router using a ethernet cable comming from my desktop computer? and if so what router would you recommend for this application?
Have just received an AOL wireless modem; have a belkin wireless adapter for my PC (running Wndows XP) but doesn't give a reliable connection to AOL.Is there any specific adapter I should be using? Modem isSL 2680
I was told by my Internet company that my router may not be compatible with my new modem (from them). I have a Basic Wireless Router. Model f7d1301. Purchased about 1 year ago. I was told that Belkin designs it this way so we have to buy a new one regularly. But 1 year!!! That is terrible. Is it true? Is this older router no good? I have purchased a new one and it seems to,have solved the problem. It does take me very happy that I already have to buy a new one....
Currently, I have setup a demo lab with the UC320W + IP Phones and OnPlus Network Agent all connected to a SG300-28P. I have just obtained an SRP547W because I wanted to use the 3G/4G internet connection via the router as my demo lab is an isolated network.Now, I tried to a couple of 3G modem (UMG181) and 4G Telstra modem (MF821) on the SRP547W but none of these work. I had a look at the compatibility tableI guess those modem models are not listed there. However, when I went on say the Optus website to scout for a more compatible model, none of them hit it right on the mark. The matrix says it can support E180 (while Optus has the E188), E353 (while Optus has the E353). I have already wasted my money on getting the earlier stated 3G/4G Modems and I ain't going to take a chance again.
There are three RT-N56U routers in my family. I have one as does my dad and uncle. Bought all 3 about a year ago. They've been rock solid since.
However, my dad has been complaining of network issues, mainly lag and slow response. During Christmas yesterday, I took some time to troubleshoot it which ended in disaster. He was on an older firmware so I had updated it. After the update, the wireless would drop every 5-10 minutes after the router rebooted. I tried rolling back the firmware and there is still the same issue.I reboot the router, wireless comes up and within 10 minutes, the wireless is down.
Most of the clients on the network are iDevices. There are two iPod Touches, 4 iPad Mini's and iPad, two iPhones and an Apple TV, all wireless. Other than that, there is a PS3 and a bunch of wired clients. Looking in the routers logs, it appears that at least one device keeps requesting a DHCP request even though it has an address. Then at some point, the router spits out this error in the log: [code]
That error just keeps counting up, starting at 1 -- Based on google info it's related to wireless drops due to ASUS firmware issue with certain wireless cards. My guess is one of the new devices has a card that they don't support, causing this issue. I was stating to think, since he has so many iDevices on his network, an Airport Extreme?
I have an ASUS Z77 Motherboard and when I install the AI Suite II which comes on the installation disc it blocks my internet connection. When I uninstall the software my connection is fine. I am using an Ethernet connection by the way. I think it is being blocked by the component called Network iControl. As soon as that component is uninstalled my Internet connection comes back. I want to have the software, but I also want to have my connection.
