Linksys Access Point :: E2500 Obtaining IP Address Timing Out While Connecting

Dec 5, 2011

I have a E2500 router and 3 WAP610N access points.  Users are having a difficult time connecting to the AP's.  The client device just sits there trying to obtain an IP and then times out.  If they get within range of the actual wireless router, then connect instantly.  Is there a setting to increase that will allow longer time trying to obtain an IP?
I am using the same SSID for roaming, but am using different channels (1, 6, 11) for the overlap.  See diagram below.  Not sure if this has some impact?

E2500 Router Not Obtaining IP From ATT High Speed DSL?

Jul 3, 2012

So I received a new modem today and wanted to tandem it with an extra router that I have so I can get wireless at work. Here are the steps I've taken:Verify modem connection works connected directlySet modem to bridge modeReset router, set to PPPOE with proper log in Try to connect, and get the message "Could not obtain IP from PPPoE"I've researched as much as I could stand online, and found these to be the major steps everywhere, most people miss the bridge mode but I'm sure I've done it properly (switched back and forth atleast 5 times). I don't currently have access to the connection but I can respond tonight to questions about what else I may or may not have done, and will take what is suggested here to try tomorrow

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 As Wifi Access Point Only?

May 17, 2011

I have an E2500 running as a router/DHCP server. For reasons beyond the scope of this question, I am replacing the router and DHCP functions with a SonicWALL device. I would like to continue to use the E2500 as a wireless access point only, providing WiFi connection to the SonicWALL. How do I set up the E2500 for this purpose. I assume I switch off the DHCP server and NAT within the device. Is there a dedicated "access point" mode?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using E2500 Wifi Access Point?

Dec 13, 2012

I have an existing home network with a D-link wireless router, IP  In the past, I set up another of the same model Dlink router as a WAP to extend my network by simply disabling DHCP and setting its IP to  Used the same SSID and passwords, worked flawlessly.  Now, my WAP-router has failed and I purchased a LINKSYS E2500 to replace it in that function. I'm trying to configure it the same way but am having problems.The Linksys' IP is by default. I hooked its LAN port to my laptop and accessed the setup page at  I changed the router IP to and disabled DHCP. I saved settings, the router reset, and since, I am unable to re-connect to that router setup screen at either OR the default  I reset the router to default and tried this multiple times but could never get back to the setup page (didn't even configure any wireless settings yet) after I made the IP change and disabled DHCP.  With my previous router, this worked easily and flawlessly.
1. What am I doing wrong (ok, other than using Dlink components)?

2. Should these two different brand components work ok together llike this or is that a problem?

3. Why should unticking DHCP and/or changing the IP address as described make the device unreachable?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using E2500 As Access Point From Another Wi-Fi Device?

Jul 24, 2012

Is it possible with the E2500 (or some other device) to rebroadcast a wireless signal?Here's the situation, I live on a boat, I want to connect my laptop to a local wireless signal (which I pay for). I then want to connect my E2500 to the laptop via the "Internet" port on the E2500. This doesn't work? This would allow all my wireless devices to stay connected to a single connection point. When I move the boat and change the wireless connection, I only have to do it once for a single connection. Is there some way to achieve this?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Effectively Use G2.4 G Access Point

May 1, 2012

I am running a wired and wireless home network..using a G 2.4 router and access point. I purchased an Linksys E2500 N 5Ghz wiresless router can I still effectively use my Linksys G 2.4 g access point? Will I still have to get a linksys N 5Ghz access point to properly obtain the most speed and security?

I use the wireless with a cable service and use wireless access only for the cell phones via WiFi.I rarely use the desktops on the home network, I want to increase the speed for the cell phone via Wi-fi, Currently speedtest results were 4.80 for downloads and 2.0 for uploads. I have not much use for uploading except for sending photos via wi-fi.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 As Access Point In Office Network?

May 2, 2012

I'd like to use an E2500 as a wireless access point in my network. My computer is connected to the office network through a Netgear 5 port desktop switch. Would it be easier for me to configure the E2500 from the switch? If so, do I just plug it in there and access it via the IP address to set it up? And lastly, what should disable (DHCP) or setup in the router so the internet functions through it?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 As An Additional Access Point Will Not Connect

Oct 16, 2012

I have AT&T Uverse which provides Internet for my home.  The wireless capability of this router is pretty bad, I don't get good/reliable wireless reception upstairs in my office.  The solution was to buy a Cisco E2500 and add it as an access point upstairs.
I have the E2500 LAN port connected to the LAN port of my uverse router downstairs.  DHCP is turned off on the E2500.  I have my office PC wired into the E2500.  The home PC works fine, its getting DHCP from the uverse router downstairs and connects and good speeds.  The problem comes with my wireless devices trying to connect to the E2500. 
I should mention that yesterday when i bought this, all worked fine.  This morning when I came into my office none of the wireless devices would connect to the E2500 at all.   But as soon as I remove the cable that connects the E2500 to the uverse router downstairs they will connect via wireless but of course not get an IP address since that is disabled.
I have factory reset the E2500 and uverse router several times and am getting no where. what could be causing the wireless devices to not connect at all?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Local Management For E2500 As Wifi Access Point

Jul 19, 2012

I am using an E2500 as an access point, which is working fine. I have an Ethernet cable on one of the LAN ports of the E2500 connected to a LAN port on my gateway router. The LAN address of the E2500 is and the LAN address of the gateway router is Clients on the E2500 wireless network have no problems getting to the Internet through the gateway router. Clients on the E2500 wireless network can reach the E2500 local management port at on port 80. On the gateway router I am forwarding WAN port 8083 to LAN address at port 80. But I cannot access the E2500 local management interface via the gateway router. The E2500 should see the request as from due to NAT in the gateway router, right? I can reach any of my actual access points this way, just not a router being used as an access point. Security/design limitation of the router?

Linksys Access Point :: E2500 Or E3200 - Best Option To Set Up Wireless With Verizon FiOS?

Dec 7, 2011

I have Verizon FiOs and their provided wireless router does not cover my entire house. There are plenty of dead spots throughout the house (house is 3500sq. ft.)
The FiOS comes into the basement so currently I have their router is set up in the basement. I wanted to shut off their FiOS wireless router and use my new E4200 router for wireless coverage. I am pretty sure the E4200 alone will not be able to handle my house. Most of the rooms of the house are already prewired with Ethernet cables. All those wires converge in the same closet in the basement, therefore moving the router is not an option.  I was thinking of putting whichever product you experts recommend in my office which is on the 2nd floor on one side of the house. This room does have Ethernet access. However it is currently at 50-60% signal (with FiOS). My bedroom which is on the opposite side of the house is at 10-20% signal (with FiOS).
I am looking to buy something to reach all the deadspots and have WIRED LAN access (if need be in the future). What is my best option? I have researched the RE1000, the WAP610N, and even some of the other routers (E2500 or E3200)  for hours. I am not an expert, and frankly after hours of reading, these technical terms of "range expanding" and "access points" are all sounding synonymous to me. I guess what I need is the range expansion on the same WiFi SSID my E4200 will provide (to cover all areas of my house), as well as an access point for connecting TVs, Xbox, or PCs in the future. 

1) RE1000

2) WAP610N

3) or a router to use as an access point/range expansion combo? E2500 or E3200?
Naturally, is the range capability better for Routers or the WAP610N or RE1000?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 / E3200 Or E2500 Better For Home Access Point?

Jan 18, 2012

I am looking form accesspoint for home network. I do not need router and usb functionality, I have this already in my linux server. I need only wifi accesspoint with 2 bands and 300Mbps bandwith. Is there a big difference between E4200 or E3200 or E2500? I know that E4200 supports 450Mbps, but I am not planning to buy new devices which could go faster than 300Mbps. Beside of technical parameters in technical specyfication is there a difference in wifi bandwith or tranmission between wifi and cable network?

D-Link DIR-655 :: Connecting Linksys Router As Access Point?

Mar 21, 2011

My home network currently has a Linksys router (essentially acting as a wireless access point) in a distant part of the house connected to my main router, a Netgear WNR2000, and this configuration is working fine.

I want to replace the main router with a new D-Link DIR-655 (better parental controls).  When I swap in the new router and get the cables plugged in in the same manner as they are in the Netgear router, computers connecting wirelessly to the Linksys router can no longer access the Internet. 

The Netgear router is set up with an IP address of  The Linksys is, and the D-Link is at the default

Wifi Icon By Clock Shows That Its Still Obtaining Ip Address

Mar 2, 2012

When I'm on a fresh boot on my laptop (full shutdown then starting back up) my wifi connects just fine....perfect.However, when I close the screen (its a laptop) and it goes into standby...when I wake it up again my wifi icon by the clock shows that its still obtaining an IP address or whatever (little yellow dot bouncing back and forth over the icon)....The icon will stay like this until the next time I reset the computer....but the entire time my wifi works as it should....its just the icon thats being weird.

Fresh install of Windows (as of two weeks ago)
Windows XP SP3 - all updates are current
Dell Latitude D610
Dell Wireless 1470 Dual Band WLAN Mini-PCI Card
Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller (wired cat5 disabled)
1GB ram
all drivers up to date

Like I said...everything is working as it should..Its done this since I've done the fresh install of Windows, so it has nothing to do with any software I've installed or any of the updates.

Linksys Access Point :: Cisco 871w - Connecting Panasonic Blu-ray With Wifi?

Sep 19, 2009

I use a Cisco 871W router for my office in home -- I have Wifi working and want to add my new Blu-Ray player to the network -- I bought a  WAP54G to use as a wireless bridge assuming i woudl just connect the WAP to the BLU-Ray with a ethernet cord.     The instructions for installation of the WAP include connecting it to my router for the set up but the installation disk says it is not recognizing the WAP.  I use Brighthouse for my ISP and the connection sequence is BH Modem to teh Cisco 871W --  the 871W directly connects to my CPU  and to a Net gear FS105 fast network Switch -- the swicth connects to my VOIP phone , HP printer and external HD back-up system -- there is an open port onthe FS105 and two open LAN ports on the 871W. 
I tried to install the WAP but connecting it to both the router and the swtich without luck. Is the WAP what I need to connect the Blu-Ray --- am i missing something in the set up?

Linksys Access Point :: Wet610n - Connecting Device To Certain Wifi Networks

I am having trouble connecting my device to certain WiFi networks. We work with hotels and we have a handful of devices that are just not able to connect to their network. Te device works fine in my office. When I get to the Setup page and do a site survey, it'll get to 100% and then display a "page can't be found" as oppose to showing me that it has been connected. We had the MAC address cleared in their network and still no luck. Firmware has also been updated.

Linksys Access Point :: WAP610N - Unable To Obtain IP Address

Dec 14, 2012

I bought a Linksys WAP610N today, i placed it so i could get a signal where i can't normally.
The thing is i configured it correctly, well at least i think, i can see it on my wireless network, with a good signal, but on my Android tablet (Google Nexus 7), it can't get past the "Obtaining IP address".
I called the technical support, the person there tried to assist me for about 1 hour, we tried different settings, we upgraded firmware from 1.0.01 to 1.0.04, but it didn't worked. Now he said someone will call me tomorrow during the afternoon.
My router isn't Linksys, it's a Netgear, i don't have wireless problem when i connect my tablets or any other wireless device on it, it's just that i bought this WAP610N to have the signal in my bedroom, where i don't get any signal normally.

Linksys Access Point :: E4200 Discover New IP Address Of Reconfigured Router

Feb 14, 2013

I have changed from a DSL internet service to a Comcast cable system.   I have setup my E4200v1 router as an Access Point, to extend coverage in my building.  It works fine, but I can no longer log on to  the unit using its'  IP address  The browser returns the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."   If I want to tweak the settings the only thing I can think to do is to push the reset plug, back to factory settings and go through the whole process.   Is there a way to discover the new IP address of the reconfigured router?  I left the default address as it was when I made the changes to AP status.

Linksys Access Point :: WAP54g Doesn't Recognize Laptop's IP Address?

Web Browsers Not Connecting / Timing Out?

Jun 13, 2011

Recently, I've been getting problems where my internet browser is unable to connect to the server it's looking for or gets timed out. It happens intermittently (probably every five to seven web pages I try to visit), and refreshing after a few seconds always allows it to connect fine. It happens at some point on every web site I try to visit.This began occurring rather suddenly on both of my home computers. All other connections on these computers seem to be working fine. I use Chrome as the primary browser on both computers, but have tried using Firefox and it still seems to occur.What can I do to figure out what the problem is? I'm not even sure if it's a browser issue or a network issue, but we have never had this problem before

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs V7 And A Wap54g V3.1 - Unable To Get IP Address From Access Point

Mar 1, 2012

I have a wrt54gs v7 and a wap54g v3.1.  Both have latest firmware on them.  I set the access point to act as a repeater and entered the mac address from the router (It said to use the lan mac address.  is that right?).  I have them set on same subnet with static ip addresses.  They have same wireless ssid and password with one using channel 10 and the other using channel 2.  I can receive an ip address from the router and connect to internet.  I cannot get an ip address from the access point.  I tried a static ip on the computer and it will connect, but I don't have internet.  Am I missing something in the setup?  Can this access point act as a repeater for this router?

Linksys Access Point :: WRT54G - Unable To Find Access Point In Home Network

Aug 29, 2009

I just bought an LG Bluray DVD player (BD390) which is unable to find the access point in my home network.My router is a WRT54G, ver. 2.2, running firmware: Ver.4.21.1.  My home network uses high speed cable with two computers on the wireless network, all working with no problems.The router is on the second floor but the two computers and the new BD390 are on the first floor - about 35 feet away. I have the wirelss security set to none and use only the specific computer MAC addresses to allow connection to this network.
I found directions in the forum for a setup using the LG BD390  but with a different Linksys router. I changed the security to WPA (AES); the Beacon interval from 100 to 75; the Fragmentation Threshold from 2346 to 2304; and the RTS Threshold  from 2347 to 2307. The DVD wireless connection still failed to find my network. There is a "Push button" connection feature on the BD390 setup which I tried, but the only "button" on the router I could find was in the basic wireless setting, a green icon for the wireless SSID setup. No connection was made there either.
The recommendation connection from the LG manual is for a network cable, but that would be over 50 feet and a real pain to connect, so I would prefer WiFi.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Connecting At Low Speeds

Dec 22, 2011

I recently installed a refurbished E2500 router. The reported speeds I got when hovering over the icon in the system tray ranged from 54 Mbps down to 1.0 Mbps. Also, it would drop, then reestablish, the connection several times per day.I contacted Tech Support via Live Chat, and got a woman who told me it was due to the fact that I'm using the router with an older system that has a wireless-G card (I'll be getting a new system soon).Of course, I thought that was ridiculous, so I called Linksys Tech Support and got a young man who had me reinstall the firmware upgrade (which I had already done when I installed the router). After that, it was good for about 24 hours, then the problems manifested again.I returned the router and ordered a replacement, also refrubished. Again, I upgraded the firmware upon installation. .
