Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N / Getting Poor Wireless Transfer?

Aug 20, 2011

I recently replaced my old router with wag320n and I'm concerned about the wireless transfer which is really poor. 2,5Mbps is maximum I get which is really disappointing as I share lots of things on my network and could really use some better data transfer. Distance to the router is irrelevant, 5 metres or 0,5 metres - all the same/I tried different frequencies, 20 and 40 mhz bandwidth, no result as well.I know that 150mbps is just theoretical but 20mbps is 13% of the N standard, that's not what I expected from linksys.Firmware version is V1.00.12, all the advanced wireless settings are set to default. I tried different values but they make no difference at all.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N Very Poor Wireless Signal On 5GHz?

Nov 29, 2010

I live in a block of flats I decided to buy a proper router on 5GHz. I can see at least 12 wireless networks and all of them on 2.4GHz(mostly BT HomeHubs or other UK ISP wireless boxes). I study CCNA and our teachers recommend cisco routers(linksys) as the best ones. I bought a WAG320N as the best one I could find in the UK market for a fair price. The problem is, that I have less signal on 5GHz than on 2.4GHz. I have maximum 50% of signal on 5GHz and speed is usually below 802.11g, means below 64Mbps! I can't believe it. When I change it to 2.4GHz the signal has up to 80% like my old router TP-Link. The speed is mostly up to 65Mbps, means terrible. I have seen lots of topics about this particular router but I couldn't believe that Cisco sell such awful and unreliable products like this router. I have tried to change the channels on 5 and 2.4GHz but it's always the same, poor speed and low signal. My wireless card is Intel WifiLink 6200 Advanced -N and operating systems Windows 7 and Sabayon linux. I have a laptop and it is cca 6 metres from the router and there are 2 walls. The router is still under warranty so I won't hesitate to return it back to PCWorld.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N - USB Transfer Speed Very Slow

Nov 26, 2009

I have the above router, but I have noticed that the USB Transfer speed is very poor. I have a WD External HD plugged into the router and id i transfer filed from my server which is hardwired to the router I only get a transfer speed of about 2.5MB/s.
For a USB device I was kind of thinking I would be getting a minumm of atleast 50-60MB/s.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: Lower Transfer Speeds After Switching To WAG320N?

Jan 30, 2011

I just recently purchased a Linksys WAG320N and replaced a setup with Linksys AM200 modem and a good ole Linksys WRT54GL. Problem is that after the switch i immediately got around 100 KB lower transfer speeds no matter what source i use or kind of transfer i perform. If i earlier got for example 860KB/sec i now only gets 760KB/sec.I´ve set the modem/router up pretty much using the default values, are there any settings i could change to get a more efficient use of my bandwidth? I am using the provided network cable that came with the WAG320N, but i have also tested with other cat 5 cables. The file transfers are taking place using cable attached devices only.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WAG320n Slow Transfer Rate

Dec 27, 2012

I have a home network running on a Linksys WAG320n and i have attached to it a WD MyBookLive (w Gigabit Ethernet). I am connected on the network via my Dell with a Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGN. I am not able though to connect on N range. I have installed the latest drivers from Intel but nothing changed. When i try to copy a file from my computer to the WD Network drive the transfer rates are very slow. I get Max 2MB/s - 3MB/s while if i connect my computer with a wire the speed goes up by 3-4 times more.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Poor Wireless To Wired Transfer Speeds?

Oct 26, 2012

I have tried 2 DIR-655 routers now, revision B1, firmware versions 2.04, 2.07, 2.08beta and a number of laptops and wireless mini pci-e nics and I simply CAN'T get faster than about 10 megabytes/sec transfer speed from a wireless laptop to a wired gigabit desktop.

Is this just simply a limitation of these routers?  Can they simply not transfer data at decent speeds?  I've seen real world transfer speeds near 12 megabytes/sec on a DIR-615 and I assumed the limiting factor there was the 100megabit wired connection.

I've spoken to a dozen different D-Link phone support workers

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG120N Signal Strength Was Poor When Browsing Wireless LAN

Jul 17, 2010

I've noticed something interesting, after having been disconnected from the WLAN in less than 1 minute in my first experience with this Linksys' Modem Router:  The signal strength was poor when browsing the Wireless LAN.    I was at home, in a room just beside the one where the router was placed at.So, I took a look at connection status, and saw the signal strength was Medium - Weak: something around 30% and 55% You could think it was due to mirrors, the kind of walls between the rooms, and everything else, but I instantly remembered when browsing WLAN from the same place but not with the same router, the signal was strong (100%)...but I let it alone  In the other day, while browsing WLAN, I've noticed another thing, this time visible: "TX power" I've got in connection status was 39mW, while I was almost sure it should be 100mW, based on my past WLAN connections Then, today I decided to take a look more deeply in that, and unboxed my Linksys' WRT54G to test.  The test was carried on consisting in both Wireless routers placed in the same room, and a solid wall was between me and the routers.I could connect to the two WLANs, but the status of connections were different.  



As you can see, when connecting to WRT54G , signal reached 100% at some point, whereas in WAG120N , such a mark wasn't possible.Of course, the signal strength was unstable in both routers, but the average level in WRT54G WLAN was greater, being most of time over 90%, and never below 80%.In WAG120N WLAN, average was 82%, and lowest level was 55%.When I went to the room where the routers were at, and right in front of them, no need to say both reached 100%, but as you can see, in WAG120n's case, TX power was still 39mw: I believe it's a firmware fault, once all other routers I've connected to always showed TX power as being 100mW.It shoundn't be related to the general hardware, as Cisco products are high-quality ones.

I have had a wag320n for a while and ever since I bought it, The wireless stops functioning after a day or 2, if I save the settings and then restore the settings (even after it has stopped working) then it works again for a day or to then I have to repeat the process.While it was annoying most of my PC's were wired so it wasn't a major issue but in my new place I am mostly wireless so I am well over it already.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: Wireless Bridge To WAG320N?

Mar 21, 2013

I have a small home network using a Linksys WAG320N which acts as the modem (to connect to BT using PPPoA for ADSL) and provides 4 wired 100Mbs network connections along with a wireless N connections. I use WPA2 (personal) to secure the network and have a white list for allowed wireless devices. Everything works fine.In another part of the house (where I can get a good wireless signal) we have the main TV in the house. Here I have a SKY HD box and a small media player. What I would like to do is connect these two devices to the network and running a network cable is not practical, so I thought I would setup a wireless bridge.I tried a TP-Link bridge borrowed from a friend by this failed to work. I now know this to be because the WAG320N does not support WDS.Will a Linksys WES610N connect to my WAG320N to provide me with what I want?

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N Wireless Drops Out

Nov 10, 2011

My wag320N was working fine for a few months but recently has started to drop out.  The wireless signal is strong and is used to stream HD movies to a HTPC and also to a media player in different parts of the house.  The stream works fine for a while then every 2-5 minutes or so the signal drops to nothing for about 45 seconds, then comes back up to normal and then this repeats for the entire movie.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N As A Wireless Access Point?

Dec 14, 2010

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

Linksys Cable / DSL :: Turn Wireless Off At Night On WAG320N?

May 25, 2011

I've had enough of BT's shoddy Home Hub router dying whenever I transfer large files over wifi so I want to go back to a trusty Linksys and I'm looking at the WAG320N.
I've got a family member who is convinced wifi is harmful, so to avoid an argument I've agreed to switch it off at night. My last Linksys let me do this via a custom firmware, but the WAG320N isn't a Linux based model. So, my question is: can I set wifi to switch itself off at night from e.g. 11pm until 8am? Preferably this will be an actual switch-off rather than just preventing access via certain wifi devices.
If it can't do it, any alternative Linksys ADSL2+ modem that can?

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N - Wireless Client Can't See Wired

Oct 23, 2010

my modem/router WAG320N works ok but wireless client can't see wired and vice versa. they are in the same network (192.168.0. ), using the same mask, same workgroup and yes firewalls allowing all packets in and out. IP addresses are form DHCP.
internet sharing works ok, but when im trying to play any game on LAN wireless clients can see them self but not the wired one. when im trying to ping wireless client from a wired machine it doesn't work either.
what's intresting in a DHCP reservation or ARP table (in router setup) i can see both wired and wireless clients. but still they can not see each other.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N And Cable Modem Connection?

some reference material about configuring my WAG320N to use my cable modem via Ethernet port 1. I've seen it mentioned that's its possible, however I've been unable to sort it out myself.
And before you ask, I've brought the DSL router as I'm moving in the next 12 months and my new base will not have access to cable internet and I'll be reverting back to DSL.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N Wireless Connectivity Stopped Working

Mar 29, 2011

I have had a WAG320N running problem free for approx 2 months, in that time I've upgraded the firmware 1.00.12 with no issues and has run fine for a month after upgrade. I have 3 laptops connected wirelessly and 2 pc's running wired (through homeplug system) plus TV, PS3 and ipods, all have run without issues.
All of a sudden 2 days ago all wireless connectivity stopped? SSID is still broadcasting and viewable but I can no longer connect with any computer or device. Wired connectivity is working fine.
I've checked security settings, turned off encryption, reset factory defaults, re-downloaded latest firmware and reflashed with no luck. As I said wirless stopped working all of a sudden with no changes to settings.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG120n Having Very Poor Signal Strength

Jun 7, 2010

I have a linksys router WAG 120n and when using wireless if I move into the next room the signal strength goes down to 40% there is only one single wall in between the room and the router. I have upgraded the firmware to the latest version turned off other electrical devices changed the wireless channels but none of this has worked. Any more settings I can try to get the signal stronger, I really don't want to return the router unless completely necessary.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N Becomes Unresponsive?

Aug 27, 2012

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.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N Cannot Connect ISP

Mar 6, 2012

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
g.dmt or ADSL2+
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.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320n DMZ Does Not Function At All?

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.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N Is Very Slow?

Feb 4, 2011

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

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N DSL Disconnects Each Morning?

Jan 26, 2010

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.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: Connecting WAG320N And PLK300?

Feb 13, 2011

I have recently bought a WAG320N modem Gigabite router to substitute the modem router supplied by the internet service provider (in theory less performant).
Formerly I have a wireless router Zyxel (MOD. P660HW-D1). The main computer is wired (connected trough ethernet), I have also a NAS device (WD mybook world 1TB with Twonky as server) wired and a third wired connection for the above mentioned PLK 300. The PLK 300 (4 Inputs and one output) is used to connect a TV (Sony BRAVIA) a Bluray (SONY) a PS3 (Sony) and a multimedia HD (DVICO). All this was working properly. I have internet access from TV, PS3,... I was able to run videos, photos,... stored in the NAS from TV,....
I decided to change for improving the transfer speed and to allow a better wireless connection (I have initially coverage problems, but because I only use the wireless rarely...).Initially I bought a Linksys E 3000 (I thought it was possible to connect it directly to internet and not trough a modem. I asked to several people and in several shops but no one told me this was not possible). That was my first failure: I would like to suggest the liknsys people to clearly explain this on the product sheet to avoid that not very well informed people like me commit the same error.
Then I chaged the E3000 by the WAG320N. I connect the new modem-router like the former (Zyxel). No room for big errors, just the power, DSL line and ethernet cables. It works for the PC and the NAS but the PLC (PLK300) do not appears to work. Several tries later (including plugin the PLK on the line 1 input of the router it is shown on the network map but do not work. I do not have access to the internet nor to the NAS contents form TV,....

I go back to the former router and everything works again in the simplest way (I have internet access form TV,...) except the Twonky access to the NAS from TV ¿?. I do not know exactly what I have changed,...)
