Linksys Cable / DSL :: Use Two WAG120N As Roaming WLAN?
Jan 31, 2011
We have a customer who has a WAG120N as their broadband wireless router, and we've sold them some new equipment, part of which is another WAG120N as our salesperson didn't realise they had one.They have a section of the building which the current WAG120N will not reach. Reading around this forum, it seems that I can give the second WAG120N a different static IP on the LAN and use it to expand the range of the WLAN.If I've read correctly, I need to make all the wireless stuff exactly the same except to use different wireless channels on each router. But what do I do with the DHCP server on the second WAG? Is it fair to say that the clients won't suddenly jump to a different IP because they won't have a cause to request a new one? I read one comment that suggested the second should be configured for DHCP relay, and another which contradicted this. Presumably I just don't configure the ADSL on the second WAG as that will only connect to the LAN.
Recently I have changed my ISP and switched from an ADSL (4Mbps) connection to a faster fiber connection (100Mbps). I own an WAG120N which after firmware 1.00.12 (currently installed on the device is 1.00.16) should allow LAN1 to be used as WLAN. This is true and I can use it to connect to the new provider.
However the speed when using LAN1 as WLAN on WAG120N is very slow: download 20Mbps and upload 10Mbps. The LED on LAN1 is orange instead of green as before. I have tested the ISP connection with an WRT160NL and the speeds are much faster: download/upload 87Mbps
Just bought this WAG120N and using the CD Setup it gets as far as Install Gateway then displays its not connected properly. Checked everything it says to check.Im swapping from an ordinary adsl modem but i unplugged all of that and the WAG120N shows steady Power , 1 ethernet number lit and flashing ok, Wireless is lit and DSL is also also lit. Rebooted a few times too.
How do I set up the WAG120N as a router only as I no longer want to use it as modem and router?I want to connect the WAG120N thru a cable to a modem that will make the internet connection and use the WAG120N as a wireless router only.
problems when I wanted to connect my laptop to my WAG120Nrouter for the first time.First the wireless adapter on my windows xp gives me the error "unable to verify your identity"second when i passed the security verification by bypassing the security options on the connection properties of the adapter, windows tries to acquiring network address and continues it for hours. Seems Windows cannot get any ip address from the router.The router works fine with wired Ethernet devices and my iPhone when i connect it wirelessly.
normally i have no trouble opening serten ports for gaming purposes but now i just cant seem to get them open
if i do hyperlobby: (begin: 20999 ) (end: 21001 ) protocol: ( both) on my current ip address and select the active square
it should open port 21000 right?but if i check in game, it wont open, and if i check on internet for port checks it also says timed out, for some reason it wont open this port, also other game ports wont open anymore,not sure what router i got but i think this is the model : WAG120N
I need to configure a WAG 120 N as a bridge, so I can have my public IP as an output of an Ethernet port. I need this configuration because I have a non ADSL router managing VPNs and needs the public IP on the WAN port of this router.
My WAG120N does not allow airprint from ipad/ipod to HP photosmart wireless printer. When i replace the linksys router with an old netgear one all works well and the ipad can find the printer and print. Enable the Linksys router and the printer is no longer found on the ipad. other forums suggest this relates to handling of the Bonjour protocol ... any resolution for this so i dont have to go back to legacy speed on my home wifi?
I have a WAG120N which runs speedtest.net at 0.1 Mbs. My old router used to get 6 Mbs.I have tried a firmware update & reset, reduced the MTU to 1300 but still no different.Windows Vista & 7 - two different computers, same speed...
when choosing "Mixed" or "N-only" as Network Mode on the Basic Wireless Settings configuration page, the mode resets to "B/G-Mixed" or "G-only" respectively when saving. In other words, it is not possible to use the N network mode.
I am using WAG120N, and it keeps disconnected from internet randomly, normally between 5-10 minutes. The thing is, when it is disconnected, the adsl lamp is still on, so I think that it is not the network problem. When internet lamp turns off , I try to turn off the device (or unplug the phone cable), then turn it on again (or re-plug the cable), and it will work for certain minutes, then gets disconnected again. I already upgraded the firmware to v 1.00.12.
My WAG120N power light is always red whenever plugged in. I can't access the configuration page. My adapter works fine and the Reset button doesn't work. I can't find any troubleshoot for the "red power light" problem in user manual !
I have a WAG120N. I wish to use it as a modem only and not as a wireless router.I have another wireless router I want to use to handle network connectivity.I want the wag to be set to 10.10.1.1 and I want my router on 10.10.1.2What bridge mode do I set on my wag? Do I need a crossover cable?
I have multiple macs and when all of them are connected to the wag120n router, macs can't seem to find/see each other as if they are connected to different networks. I have tried another router ie. netgear dg834g router and this problem didn't occur and i am able to connect over the network without a problem. Obviously there is something wrong with the router settings.
Ok so for about a week now I have a problem with router. Today I checked log of router and found sometging like this:
Wed, 2012-12-26 15:41:15 - No response to 3 echo-requestsWed, 2012-12-26 15:41:15 - Serial link appears to be disconnected.Wed, 2012-12-26 15:41:15 - Enter: tdb_store.Wed, 2012-12-26 15:41:15 - tdb_store: calling tdb_update.Wed, 2012-12-26
I have BSNL Broadband with speed 512 kbps. My old modem gives me speed 0.54 mb . i have checked it on speedtest.net .But my new WAG120N gives me less speed 0.15mb .Why this so happen?i checked all settings
I recently got a Linksys WAG120n wireless modem but I have a problem with its Wireless.whenever I want to connect to the wireless of the modem I have to reboot the modem. or I cannot connect to it or if I connect I do not have internet access the cable LAN interface of the modem is working is working properly.I used Mixed (b/g/n) as network mode and wpa2/psk as authentication mode with using preshared key.and the channel is 11. no matter if I enable MAC filtering for wireless or not it is just the same.my laptop is a HP G42 with a Ralink 3090 wireless card and I have installed the latest manufacturer driver of the wireless Card.but it is not working .even sometimes laptop cannot find the linksys modem until I reboot the modem.as I have found there is no newer firmwire on cisco site for this modem to upgrade.
I can't seem to setup my WAG120N modem.I kept on getting the error "your ethernet cable does not appear to be connected properly" even though I have connected all the cables correctly. I can access the modem through the browser via 192.168.1.1 though.I thought the setup is supposed to be simple but I have wasted few hours.
I Just bought this Linksys Modem/Router and i still can´t believe that my cheap dlink DIR600 or my OLD SAGEMCOM can set IP to all my machines but this WAG120N cant!and Worse, how will i set port forward if i don't know which IP the machine will get?is there any firmware or MAGIC ??
