Linksys E2500 - Internet Is Very Slow At Certain Times
Feb 4, 2011
We use our internet to watch Netflix. We have had no problems until recently, I called the satellite Internet company(which is a local co.) they told me my router was going out. I bought a new one, problem solved, my husband told me my neighbor just got Internet and has been playing Xbox everyday which coincidently is between the 5:30pm to 10ish pm we have been having issues with our router. What can we do to fix this? Do I have to buy a bigger router?
I have have tried days of online researching and even calling Linksys (CISCO) about the problem I am about to describe.
When I am connected directly to my modem I am able to get around 24 Mbps. Now when I connect to my Linksys E2500 I am only able to get around 10 Mbps. I am really confused by this and I have not seen a solution anywhere for this.
isp is Comcast. They have had 2 techs come out here to look at problem and found nothing. I'm on a wireless connection with router in the next room. Modem was replaced a week ago and still problem persists. Landlady says she has no problem (shes the one in the next room and is connected directly) but I think that because she doesn't notice (I play online games so its very noticeable). I have excellent signal from router. This is my report:
I bought the new E2500 Router about 5 months ago and it was great until one day the wilreless part would not give me any speed at all. I ran a wired test of the router and I would get full 30Mbps speed that I'm supposed to get. So after firmware updates and everything else I took it back and got another one.It has worked great for a month and today it's now doing the same wilress slow down issue. I can run a lan connected test and get full speed. But wireless is bouncing around at 5Mbps~13Mbps. No where near the 30Mbps I'm supposed to be getting. What is causing the wireless to bomb like this?
I upgraded my WRT54N to an E2500 in November 2011 and I am now having problems with a slow signal that oscillates according to Speedtest.net. Results with the router are a ping of 300-500 ms and a wide variability on download speeds in a single test of 0.5 Mbps to 3 Mbps. When I bypass the router my results improve to a ping of about 65 ms and a constant download speed of about 4.25 Mbps which is the extent of what my ISP can offer due to my rural location. My network has two desktops (one Mac, one PC), an occasional MacBook Air, an occasional PS3 connection (though the variable signal has rendered the PS3 useless for online play), and my iPhone when I'm home.
So far, I have reset the router and ensured the latest firmware is installed. I also relocated the router to another section of the house, thinking it may be experiencing interference. Interestingly enough, I can unplug the router for 10 seconds, reboot it and it works great for about 30 seconds or long enough to run Speedtest a couple of times. Then it returns to the same slow, oscillating pattern.
I've just upgraded to FIOS quantum service. (50 MB down, 25 up). I have a Linksys 2500 connected to the FIOS router. The FIOS (ActionTec) router provides the full advertised speeds with any speed test service I try. But with the 2500 connected to the FIOS router I get download speeds about 3MB. The MTU on the linksys is 1500. It's connected correctly and is running it's own DHCP server. (Why am I doing this? I try to avoid the ActionTec routers, they have broken many services in the past.)The 2500 firmware is up to date. I've tested on the wireless and wired (ethernet) interfaces.
I have on Desktop wired to the router which is my main pc. When I access internet the website load really slow, but when I connect the pc directly to Comcast modem, it's blitz fast. My internet speed is 15 Mbps. I have another desktop and laptop. None of them have the problem. What settings I have to change to get back to speed I used to have before.I messed up some settings on the Cisco Connect and accidentally reset the router. After re-installing the router the problem started.
I'm using an E2500 router and an EA2500 adapter (to update my desktop from 802.11 g connection to 802.11n). I've connected my notebook to the network and the connection speed for the notebook is approx. 5.5 Mbps compared to 21.5 Mbps for the desktop connection. why the notebook connection is so much slower?I've just reinstalled both the E2500 and EA2500 tonight. I'm not sure whether or not there was such a vast difference in speed between the two before the reinstallation.
I have a Linksys X2000 modem. Why does my internet go down several times a day? My provider is Century Link and I have already called them. They say all is well on their end, so it must be my modem. I reset and sometimes it pops right back and other times it takes an hour or more.
I check all of the settings and changed the channel to see if it works. For some reason it disconnects my wireless internet at random times and i know before it never use to do that before with a older router. There is nothing blocking it, it worked before, and my computers can connect except two. The only thing i can guess is my wireless card.
I started using E4200 few months ago. It used to have frequent disconnection with E4200 when it's running on router mode back then. After playing with the MTU from 1492 (recommended by ISP) to 1364, it's seems to be quite ok until recently.It is getting worst than before. It disconnect my internet almost few times in 5 minutes. [CODE]...
I have a gaming machine i ran for some time on a wireless connection. This connection had decent speeds but was unreliable and at times very slow (3000 vent ping). So me and my father fished some cat5e cable through some wall from our router to my room. We used some old external jacks verizon gave us and some 6 foot patch cables to connect the computer and router to the jacks. My problem is that once it wall all connected the lan speed has been terribly slow (several times slower than the wireless). Previously I used an ASUS pce-n13 wireless adapter and now the lan is running of the nvidia nforce on my Asus P5n-d motherboard. I am clueless to the problem and I have called Verizon and gotten nowhere.
I have configured my e4200 to block traffic at certian times uses both the Parental Controls and the Intenet Access Polices. Neither one seems to work though. [code] I have the same MAC addresses specified in each rule. Initally I had only the first two rules. Those didn't work, so I added rule 3 and 4 (they do the same thing as rules 1 and 2 but from the opposite direction). There are no compliaints, but they don't stop any traffic.
I started with the Parental Controls, they didn't work either. The page in there that lets you pick which machines you want to block seemed next to worthless. I have about four rows listed as "Network Device." REALLY LAME! As the MAC addresses are accesible and these weren't working I went to the IAP.
A couple days ago, our Linksys E2500 router accidentally got unplugged. Since then, the internet has been working extremely poorly (a lot of latency issues plus random disconnects), so yesterday we tried soft resetting the router. This backfired immensely as now the network no longer exists and we can't access either the router or the internet through the router.If we have an ethernet cable go from the modem directly into a computer, the internet works fine (which is how I'm posting). But if we hook the modem up to the router and then another cable from the router into a computer, we get nothing. We can't even see the router.We've tried unplugging the modem and router and then plugging them back in, unplugging just the modem, and unplugging just the router to try to get it back working but that didn't work. We then tried holding down the reset button on the bottom of the router for fifteen seconds then unplugging the modem and router, holding down the reset button with the modem already disconnected then unplugging the router and plugging the modem back in then the router, and holding down the reset button with the modem already disconnected then plugging the router back in then the modem. And then we tried each of these things while waiting a minute before plugging everything back in. Nothing's worked. And everything we've googled to find out how to hard reset the router either says to do something I've already listed or requires using the router's configuration page, which we can't access (supposed to be 192.168.1.1, but nothing comes up when I enter that into my browser since we can't connect to the router).
I bought I router today, Linksys E2500 and set it up, for some reason its connected with full strength but the internet does not work on my computer, or any other device connected to the network I established on the router. I've looked through so many articles and posts on here, I've fixed the winsock, I tried the netsh winsock and the netsh int ip reset reset.log, but when I put in netsh int ip reset reset.log in the command prompt, nothing happens after I press enter. I've updated through microsoft updates, and updated some drivers from the hp website. Ive repaired, and tried restarting the router, and even the modem and nothing changed. It's still connected, but the interenet still is not working. The modem is fine, as when I disable the wireless connection, the internet works. Yes, I have Sp3 installed.I am using windows xp and the computer is called HP Pavilion a1013w Desktop PC. [code]

Heres my Ipconfig /all while my wireless connection is disabled:

Well i recently purchased a Linksys e2500 router,so i connect it to my modem and then to my PC, all by Ethernet cable(no wireless) as i want my pc connected by cable, i go through the set up CD and it finishes and says you are now connected to your router but..... not to the internet and it tells me to restart the modem with i have done, i have also tried power cycling modem, router and PC, but i still get the same old problem and when i go in network connections my local area connection says i am connected but it wont let me use the internet. also above when i have been trying to set up the router this "Internet Gateway" pops up in my network connections and it is disabled and whenever i try to enabled it it just says failed.
I'm on Cable broadband my modem is a Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem and the router is an Linksys Cisco e2500 and i am using windows xp sp 3
I've recently installed the E2500, and it's been mostly great....when it's connected. Set up was easy, all the devices in the house were recognized, the coverage is excellent, and it's nice and fast. But several times throughout the day, the wireless signal will simply drop off. Disconnecting and re-connecting gets it back on, but an hour or two later, it's off again. It;s fairly frustrating because you'll be in the middle of something, and you'll have to manually disconnet, and then reconnect. The status will show as "Local". Running Windows XP with Verizin FIOS. Old Linksys wireless router never had a connection problem.
My E2500 was working great for the past 3 months, and now it seems to be broken since I cannot access the internet anymore. I can connect to the router via wireless or wired at 192.168.1.1 and play with all the settings. On the status page, I have entries for Internet IP Address, Default Gateway, DNS1, and DNS2 as though I was connected fine to my DSL modem.If I connect my computer to my DSL modem then I can access the internet perfectly fine, so I know the modem is working. However, if I connect the E2500 to the modem, and then my macbook to the E2500 then I cannot access anything other than the router config pages. I have also tried, from the router admin page, to ping "www.yahoo.com" and "184.108.40.206" to no avail.
I have tried without success:
1. Renewing IP address from the router status page.
2. Cycling the power on the modem.
3. Rebooting the router.
4. Unplugging the power from both the modem and the router for 10 minutes and reconnecting it.
5. Resetting the router by holding down the reset button for 30s.
6. Using a different computer.
7. Turning off the firewall.
8. Reinstalling the firmware (1.0.01 build 3 May 6, 2011)
I installed an e2500 to my cable modem and everything went perfect. Then 2 weeks later the electricity went off for some power company upgrades. when the power came back on the modem wouldnt connect. I have been through every solution in the cisco articles. The computer connects when directly wired to the modem, so I know there is signal. When I place the router into service and use the ethernet connection the modem no longer displays the active internet led. The e2500 ethernet led to the computer lights and the power led. The Ethernet led from the modem to the router doesn't light. I did a complete reset on the router. The setup software only runs to 75% complete then stops and tells me to check the plugs. Ive checked, replaced and swapped the cables. I've set the MAC to clone, and verified the MAC address via ipconfig. Ive done the complete powercycle at least 20 times.
I seem to have an issue when with my new E2500 router Version 1 (upgraded to the new fireware - today to elimate issues with that).I had RCN installed a 50MB connection today.When I connect directly to the Modem, I get almost the 50MB of the server, see link from the speedtest. [URL]. However, when i plug the ethernet cable from my Cable Modem to my Wireless Router I get around 15-20MB. Here is an example:[URL]. I know speeds can vary, but if i unplugged and rest within seconds i get my expected 50MB.The cable modem is in the living room, right next to the Wireless Router. I am situated less than 2 metres from the devices when I get results and have full bars.I've tried varying the MTU on manual and also enabled it to adjust as required.
I bought I router today, Linksys E2500 and set it up, for some reason its connected with full strength but the internet does not work on my computer, or any other device connected to the network I established on the router.the interenet still is not working. The modem is fine, as when I disable the wireless connection, the internet works. Yes, I have Sp3 installed.
Currently running Windows 7, with internet explorer. I have most recent firmware installed on my e2500. The unit drops wireless connectivity on an intermittent basis. Sometimes after 5 minutes and sometimes after 20 or 30 minutes.
Here is my setup.Using all MAC OSX I have AT&T DSL ISP connected to a (ISP provided) Speedstream 5100 Modem.I just purchased a Cisco Linksys 5200 N Router and I cannot access the internet. I followed the set-up instructions to the T but to no avail. I cannot find anything online about these two devices being incompatable. Do I purchase a new modem? If so how can I be sure it's compatible with the router?
I bought the router E2500 and I followed the steps for its configuration. It so happens that most of the time I turn on my router, it does not connect to microcomputer, because it loses the internet settings, requiring that I turn the CISCONNECT and after that, I have to turn off the microcomputer, wait for 2/3 minutes and then reconnect, for only then will be able to surf the internet. I notice that many times even I doing all this procedure the router does not give access to the internet. What should I do?
Ok group here's the issue. I have a E2500 router with a wired connection for my sons xbox and 2 laptops connected to it. The laptop I used to set-up the system will usually connect to the router but not allow me through to the internet then after a shutdown and repowering it connects. what to check? The othhitch. Both arer laptop connects without a e running vista home.
My Linksys E2500 wireless router frequently interrupts the connection to my ISP. This happens about 2 times an hour. The connections is - due to the automatic reconnect feature - only interrupted for about 20-30 seconds, but is quite unnerving, as it causes downloads to stop, streams to freeze and website loading failures. The reason I know that the connection is interrupted completely is that my IP address changes every time it happens. I know the failure is not on my ISPs side, since the connection does not interrupt when I connect my PC directly to my DSL-Modem (Siemens C2-010-I). The router runs the newest available firmware (1.0.04 build 1 Dec 26, 2011)
I already have a desktop and modem at home, but I recently bought a new Sony Vaio laptop for college. I also bought a Linksys E2500 wireless router so my laptop could have internet access at home.I inserted the Starter Guide CD into my desktop, created my ID/password, and connected all the cables like it instructed me to but I still couldn't connect to the internet. Instead, several windows popped up with messages like, "Found new hardware. Locate and install driver software, "Insert disc that came with Internet Access Server", and "Windows could not find driver software for your device."When I tried to troubleshoot, I get something like this, "There may be a problem with your DNS - Windows attempted to find www. microsoft.com using DNS, but server responded back with unknown."I also tried inserting the disc into the laptop, but I still didn't recieve any internet connection, but it says that my router was connected.I tried following its advice to restart, unplug cables, and wait 2 minutes but none of it seem to work.
