Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N And Multiple Access Points
Jun 17, 2011
I have a flat that is about 500Sq meters in size and multiple rooms. I am looking to setup one WAG320N in the library with the ADSL connection and setup wireless. Can I then wireless a WAP610 or another AP in the living room and in the dinner room and in one bedroom and set it up with the same Wireless network so they can move seamlessly through the flat? Can they act in repeater mode? Which Modem Gateway and Access Point or Repeater can do it.
I have a situation where i am looking at using 3 WAG320N routers.
I have a house that is 50sq in size. I am looking to setup one WAG320N in the study with the ADSL connection and setup wireless.
Can i then hardwire a second WAG320N in the back bedroom and set it up with the same Wireless network so they can move seamlessly through the house? I will of course disable DHCP, but can it act in repeater mode?
I will then have a wire from the 2nd router to a wireless P2P link to a shed located 200 meters away, with a 3rd Router in the shed that i can have hard wired ports as well as wireless?
Whenever I try to login to the router, it fails to recognise the username and password for usually the first 5 or 6 attempts, then recognises them on the 6th or 7th. Not eactly a massive issue, but coupled with what seems to be a very unstable connection makes me wonder if it was a good move to buy cisco.
I disabled Remote Access under the Administration tab but I still can access my router management from the internet by typing in my routers gateway address. In fact I did the opposite of all that is described here. I already did a soft- and hardware reset. How can I block Remote Access forever?
I have to change ISP, as mine is closing down , and the new ISP will be sending a N router - which may have 5Gh - so I'm thinking of replacng a "G" AP with the WAG320N and use the 5Ghz range. The WAG320N will be used with a USB Music harddrive and a TV and PVR connected to it - so my music will be direct to the DLNA devices - and also provide any devices with a 5Ghz signal
I recently purchased a WAG320N router and have issues with access restrictions. Internet is shut down regardless of the time set with the policy or policies. I am using firmware version V1.00.12. Tried rebooting router, restoring factory defaults & restarting IMAC to no avail. Timezone checked and OK.
I access my home computers via teamviewer or logmein. My router is a Wag320n
Sometimes my internet connection is lost and if I'm home, I just reset it and the internet is on again.
But when I am away and the internet connection is lost, I can not access my computer. If only I could reset it, I would be able to access the computers I am trying to find a solution to do this.
Practically when the internet connection is lost, the modem does not get an IP from the ISP right? And when this IP is not assigned, there is no way of connecting to the router itself right? Is there a way of pinging or resetting or accessing a modem that is connected to he phone line? I think it is impossible. Or maybe it is possible via some MAC address search or sniffer or I don't know.
Another option would be to somehow have the modem reset, let's say every hour automatically so that the max time I would not be able to accss my computers remotely would be 1 hour.
I have set up several Website Blocking by URL Address & Website Blocking by Keyword that work as expected but the router seems unstable when they are in use and often reboots at random occasions.For example, last 2 crashes happened like this: opened a website that wouldn't load because it contained one of the keywordsopened a new tab to go to http://192.168.1.1as soon as I hit ENTER router rebootedanother occasion:
Went to Access Restrictions and Disabled an Internet Access Policy (did not close the tab).Opened a new tab and went about my businesslater went back (to the already open router tab) to Enable the Internet Access Policyclicked Save Settingsentered router password againclicked OK and it crashed (rebooted)
I've recently bought another PC, but set it up in a different area than my existing computers. It's down in my basement, along with my PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. Now the problem is connecting all of these "toys" to the internet. I only have one in-wall ethernet port, which my PC is currently plugged into. Leaving my PS3, Xbox, and Wii, only with an extremely weak wireless connection. Now, my original thought was just to buy a network "switch," BUT then I remembered I have an old D-Link router. So, logically I should be able to plug an ethernet into the wall, then into the WAD port on my router, then plug my Xbox, PS3, Wii, and PC into the 4 remaining LAN ports on my router. I want another WiFi access point using the same network, and a wired connection for all of my gadgets.
I need to have 7 individual ethernet outlets on my home network for rooms, living room etc. My router has 4 ports on it. What should I do to get the additional 3 outputs I need? Can I just plug a switch into my router for the additional ones I need? Or do I need a router with additional ports?

I only want the guest network to have internet access. I have the guest network enabled on the router and access points with the option to "Allow Guest network to access main network" disabled. My problem is that since the access points aren't hooked directly to my modem via the WAN port, the guest network broadcasted from the access points does not have internet access.I have read up on setting up a separate subnet for the guest network using DD-WRT but was curious if there was a way to get the desired result with the stock Netgear firmware.
I'm doing a college project and looking to triangulate a position where someone is standing in a building using information from at least three Wi-Fi access points. The building has computer labs that I can use. It also has just one Wi-fi signal. I want to know how I can turn one or two of the computers into a Wi-Fi access point that I can detect on my smartphone and differentiate it from the Wi-Fi signal that is currently in the building.Is there something that I can attach to a computer lab computer with possibly USB that will set up a Wi-Fi access point?or if I wanted, could I bring in a laptop and attach something to it in order to set up a Wi-Fi access point?In both situations, I want to use the Wi-Fi connection that is already in the building to create ' hotspots' that I can use so that I can get information from each.
Well this process is self explanatory, setting up the network is easy but im running into trouble with my wireless devices connecting to the strongest signalIm not exactly sure if there is a fix for this yet or if they have not made a protocol to fix it. I have a big house with solid wall in which i have setup 3 wifi's. 1st Modem/wifi Router, 2nd Wifi access point, 3rd wifi access point. Now the problem im having is moving between the access points my devices such as my ipad are changing from one access point to the next whilst moving throughout the house (that is until it loses the first signal I believe or you turn your ipad wifi off/on so it reconnects back to the strongest/closest access point).
My boss just asked me if there was a way for him to move from point A to Point B with his wireless laptop and NOT have to reauthenticate at point B if I install another access point there. Right now I have us setup on a Cisco WAP4410N Access Point that works well when he's within range of the antenna. The point B location is upstairs and while it's only about 50-70 feet away from the Point A access point the signal he's getting there is very weak so he wants me to install another AP there.
IOW he wants to authenticate once at point A and when he walks up to point B he wants the laptop to pickup the newer hotter signal when I put another AP point in.
I have a Packetfront DRG700 broadband modem (fiberoptic), which also has a wireless DHCP server built-in. In addition I have a D-Link DIR-615 router which is connected by cable to the modem. I want both units to be wireless access points for the same local network.
I've tried disabling the DHCP server on the D-Link and naming both units with the same SSID and passphrase, but that didn't work because whenever I'm wirelessly connected to the D-Link, I get an IP address from my broadband provider and not from the DHCP server on my modem; i.e. I'm no longer connected to my local network.
I'm told by my provider that the reason is because the DHCP server on the DRG700 only works wireless, while the LAN ports are given IPs from outside the house. (I would use one of these ports for my broadband TV decoder.)
I have a router that is capable of wireless N at 5.0GHz but can't run simultaneous with it's 2.4GHz band a/b/g (Cisco Linksys E2000), so I have a second router acting as gateway for my b/g devices (and a few wired only that are nearer to it). They are connected LAN port to LAN port with 50ft of cat6 and the DHCP server running on only one router. I know this is pretty standard for multiple access points, and it works very well. But I'm moving, and in the new house, the internet access will be on one floor with the wireless N router, and the other router will need to be in the basement on the opposite end of the house, and running networking cable through the floor and walls is just too much trouble. My question is, can I replace the previous wired method with a wireless N bridge attached to the LAN port of the router in the basement and have it function in the same way as it did when it was wired, with only the DHCP server running on the wireless N router, and all devices attached to either router able to see each other? I would assume so, but I would like to know from anyone who has experience with it before I go buying the bridge.
We have multiple Cisco Aironet 1131AG devices, all wired on one Cisco L2 switch(2560) who is connected to L3 switch (3550). We assigned one VLAN for access point in L3 switch who acts as vtp server (L2 switch is vtp client). All ap's will have static ip address and all will have same SSID and no security and they will be using multiple channels (ex. 1,6,11). They will operate in 3 floor building for roaming wireless client. We won't using any wireless controller.
How to configure APs-all the same with different ip's, can we use L3 switch to create dhcp server for access points VLAN (pool for clients, and the rest for static ip for ap's)?
I have an intermittent issue with a new WAG320N.Device is new (installed for 1 month now) and is running the latest firmware "out of the box".
Device was confirmed as working (recommended) via the ISP, as it uses a Broadcom chipset, so it works "more reliably" with the ISP's hardware which uses the same chipset.
Setup was painless and the router synced up fine and has been operating for a few weeks. However, twice in the past week the router has become unresponsive to ping over the LAN. Furthermore, the device's lights indicate everything is OK, however I have to reset the router (power cycle) and then it returns to normal.
WIFI is OFF. LAN IP is set manually, DHCP is OFF. The router is plugged into it's own UPS.
How to configure settings for router E4200I live in Finland and bought new Cisco Linksys WAG320n router modem as I am experienced Cisco user. However after spending several hours and setups on the WAG320n router I cannot get it to connect on the ISP ADSL line.
RFC2684 Bridged LLC/SNAP g.dmt or ADSL2+ VPI 0 VCI 100
But once I setup these or acutally any other setting I cannot get the router to connect. With the right settings I can get the DSL PVC status up and connected but the ModemRouter cannot connect and retrieve IP-address from ISP.
I'm trying to play some online games and my WAG320N does not forward ports, upnp does not function and to top it off DMZ wont even work (not a software firewall issue either). I have the latest firmware (and honestly the stock firmware is terrible).
Am I out of luck or is there something I can do to fix this? I sure as hell will be steering clear of linksys products after this.
This WAG320N Router can get really slow after a while use which is really frustrating for me since I am a gamer. Power cycling it SOMETIMES does the trick but it will still get slow. It has been slow just now and over here it is midnight so the internet peak should be down and my internet should be faster but its now.
I have the WAG320N. I know if my router is updated to fix the bug of the WPS?There is an update? Which is the date scheduled for release? The vulnerability of my network has been compromised yesterday because of this bug, so either the update is released soon or I'll have to switch to another product of some companies more serious
Transferring a file between a wired Win 7 machine and a wireless Snow Leopard mac seems to top out at 32Mbps.I've seen over 60Mbps on this laptop using N networks before, and when I wire the laptop I get a more respectable 240Mbps (presumably maxing out the server's disk I/O rate), so I'd say the issue is the router.
Things I have already tried:updating the firmware to 1.00.125Ghz modeFinding the least crowded 2.4Ghz channelswide channelsSetting network mode to N-onlySetting the transmission rate to 108Mbpschanging the beacon interval to 50, the frag threshold to 2201 and the RTS threshold to 2202
I have only purchased this modem a few days ago (upgraded from a working Netgear DGN2000 for Gigabit).... it's solid most the time except for once a day when it needs to be reset.
One morning I accessed a single website, only to find the next wouldn't come up. (approx 7:30am) Lastnight the net was working fine at 11:30pm.... Thismorning I woke up, checked my download manager to find that at 2:30am all queued downloads failed, so the ADSL dropped sometime inbetween then.
The LAN and Wifi still work fine, when I go into the settings and click "reconnect" nothing happens. I need to turn the modem off for a min before it works ok. There is no newer firmware as of yet to try.
I do not have a "storage" tab in my setup screen. I have Setup, Security, Wireless, etc. According to its manual there must be a Storage tab between security and wireless. Mine doesn't have it. USB drive is connected and I see "mywag320n" on the network but I can't access it because it requires login and password (which I guess I must set up from Storage tab )
I connected my Western Digital Studio II 2TB external harddrive which is formatted NTFS. I can access the drive and read it. But I can't write it. It says I do not have rights. I tried to get to be the owner of the device but it gave some kind of error.
my device can connect to the wireless network. When i tried to setup the network again it says that no WLAN network found. I have not change any of the setting in the modem it just can't find any WLAN network. I have tried reseting the modem but still no network found.
