I am using the E2500 v1.0 on TWC network (road runner) wit a VISTA upgraded to Windows 7 laptop.After few months the router is starting losing connection. I tried connecting my laptop directly to the twc modem and the connection is fine, while if I connect to the E2500 v1.0, through wired or wireless connections, I see that the connection is going back and forth.I tried resetting the modem and the router, upgrading the wireless router firmware, but nothing worked.
I have the new XBOX 360 black N wireless adapter and the Linksys E3000 dual band router as I want to upgrade the network range and speed to N. I set up a unique SSID and passphrase (WPA2) for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. My XBOX could connect to the 2.4GHz band network and could connect to XBOX Live. But when I configured all the settings and tried to connect to the 5GHz band network, but no luck. My XBOX just said it failed to connect. I was sure that I did type in the SSID and passphrase correctly. I still cannot figure out what went wrong. I even suspected either the wireless adapter or the router malfunctioned.
I've been having issues with my e2500 router. I've found my connection dropping occasionally both with a wired connection and wirelessly on other computer. My desktop is connected directly to the router via ethernet and I've been keeping an eye on my network preference pane. Every 10 minutes or so the connection will be lost and computer says the cable is unplugged. It then resolves after 2 minutes.
I'm running OSX 10.8, firmware 1.0.07. Done a factory reset, power cycles etc. Configured with Cisco connect and manually multiple times. I've swapped out ethernet cables just to be sure it wasn't a cable issue.
Internet is fine when I've got the computer hooked up directly to the modem. No connection issues.
A few months ago I purchased an e2500 Cisco Linksys router to use in my home. This past Christmas, my family got about 4 new wifi devices which they added to the network bringing the total number of devices on my home network to 10. I wanted to know if there are any advanced settings in Cisco Connect that I can tweak to make my wifi speeds faster because right now I'm getting about 55 Mbps on most of my devices. I was also wondering what the typical range of the e2500 router was and if the e4200 offers a large improvement.

Ever since upgrading my firmware from 120426 to the latest(121225), one of my computer(windows xp, TP-link Nano) is frequently losing internet connectivity.I purchased the router a month ago and firmware 120426 was the version that came installed. The router would stop working about 3-4 times a week, requiring me to reboot it. Because of this I did some research online and found out about version 121225 which supposedly should improve performance and stability. After the firmware upgrade today I noticed that one of my computer is having a lot of trouble maintaining internet connectivity for more than 30 minutes. When checking wireless connectivity it would say that I am connected and that the signal strength is excellent. I'm also able to ping 126.96.36.199 but not www.google.com(I've tried ipconfig /flushdns and it doesn't solve the problem). I also have trouble accessing or pinging the router(192.168.0.1) with this computer.
I changed the 5 GHZ SSID name using Cisco connect on my E3200 router as was expecting to see 2 available wireless networks on my laptop, but it seems that only the 2.4 GHZ is still broadcasting as it was before. When I connect to it with my laptop it shows it connecting with 802.11n, so I would think that my laptop would see the 5 GHz SSID if it was broadcasting. I am trying to take advantage of the dual band feature and connect the 5 GHZ to my blue ray player for real time video streaming.
I just setup my EA3500 router and both SSID's are the same.Is this ok or should I give them unique names?Since they are the same what are my products connecting to?If I do separate them, what item should connect to what network?
I have a Virgin Superhub at home which is capable of 2.4 OR 5GHz wireless. I have a mixture of 2.4 and 5 GHz tech at home so would like to use dual band. My wireless settings on my Superhub modem look like this.As you can see it has settings for 2.4 OR 5GHz and wireless modes of 54, 144 or 300Mbps.
What setting should I be using for my EA4500 to operate in dual band mode? I'm guessing I should put by Virgin Superhub modem in modem mode at 5GHz/300Mbps.I will besetting up seperate SSIDs for 2.4 and 5GHz bands.
I use to use 2 routers, one for me and my dad, another for my brother and sister. We decided to get rid of the other router, and make our cisco E2000 our main router, but, everything on the router settings got removed so we had to reset it up. I remember reading an advanced setting guide on making my wireless speed go from 13.5MBPS to 216 MBPS, but i forgot what the settings was in advance settings.

During long, heavy download streams (such as BT, video streaming) the router WDR4300 would still lock up the internet (WAN) connection for that client. I could still go to the admin web page on that client but no internet activity would occur until either rebooting the router.

The 5 ghz connects fine for multiple machines however machines on 2.4 simultaneously lose their connection to the internet, sometimes saying it is still connected to the internet when it is not and sometimes losing connection with the router entirely. The 5ghz still works when this happens.
I have a Netgear N600 WNDR3700v1 Dual Band Gigabit router and am having a problem with the wired connection with my PC. Everything wireless in the house works fine. In fact, I also have a Direct TV box hooked up for on demand and a sling box hooked up (both wired) and they work find. It's just my PC that is having issues. If I bypass the router and hook straight into the modem, it runs fine also so I have something going on between the router and this PC. I updated the NIC driver and this did not work. Before the update in the device manager, it said it was a NIVIDA nForce Network Controller (if I remember right) and now it says NIVIDA nForce 10/100 Mpbs Ethernet. It was suggested that I change my speed and duplex to match the router after I update but I am unsure what to change it to.

I have a big problem with several TP-Link routers (WDR3600, WR1043ND, WR741ND), always with the latest firmware and also with older ones. After a day or so, my internet & network connection will drop all of a sudden and all the routers need a reboot. There is no indication on what provoces these lock-ups. The routers can handle heavy traffic (bittorrent /w 100s of connections) but will stop working when browsing casually. The web-GUI will become unreachable. No pings to the outside are possible anymore, not even to direct IPs (188.8.131.52 for example). No pings to devices in the same network are possible either.
My wifes Dell D600n with with Intel 2200BG wireless G card was Extremely difficult to get access to internet at first @ 54Mbps, but achieved it after 3 weeks of trying, after I had replaced motherboard, to fix battery charging issue.
The current problem, that i cannot seem to surmount is: I replaced the wireless card with a newer Broadcom BCM43222, Dual band N wireless card, that should be capable of connecting at almost 6 times the speed of the older G card. Unfortunately, the new card seems unable to connect at all.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The wireless switch via keyboard Fn & F2, has been on the entire time. I've tried a couple of different drivers, to no avail. Ive uninstalled/ reinstalled both the card and drivers several times, still no connection. The device manager reports the card is off, at all times, and i cannot find any way to alter this, but, despite the fact that this sounds like it could definitely cause no connection, this is unlikely to be the reason, because it has reported that the wireless card is off at all times since the new Motherboard was installed, and the Wireless G card worked perfectly for the past 2 months, and still does, while the device manager was all the while reporting it was off.
Also the wired broadband connection, via cat 5, had never worked after changing MOBO, Nor did the Dial up modem, til both modem and Ethernet came to life, last night after reinstalling drivers for both the modem and Ethernet. unfortunately doing the same thing for wireless had no effect. All this time the Intel wireless G card has, and still does work perfectly every time i remove the Broadcom Wireless N card and plug the G card back in. Until lastnight, The device manager reported the wireless card had no driver installed. now it recognizes the driver is installed but still cannot connect wirelessly One wireless card driver I tried was called: BROADCOM_ABGN_DD-WRT.zip. I lost track of the name of the other driver that i've been trying. Someone on another forum said after installing BROADCOM_ABGN... That one must go to device manager advanced properties and select US from choices of US, Japan, or Germany, To get this driver to work. I've tried this too. Again, No improvement.
Ive built my own computers for the past 30 years, and repair them all the time, for hardware problems, but I fear software is not my forte. My son, who is better at software. Usually, together, we can solve any mechanical electronic or software malfunction, but we're both stumped by this one. Admittedly, we all sometimes overlook a simple solution while seeking a very difficult one. Whenever I face a difficult malfunction like this, I think of when as a 5 year old I was privileged to accompany my Engineer big brother to a local Airport to repair what i would later learn was a Automatic Direction Finder System, needed before flight. As I sat beside my on the tarmac, watching him sweat bullets trying to effect a quick fix, I noticed something that looked out of place to me, and started chanting his name, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie... ad infinitum, as kids are like to do, til in desperation he finally dropped his screwdriver withwhich he aws about to dismantle the entire mechanism, and fairly yelled what?, to which I asked timidly, Ronnie are all those lightbulb things (electron tubes) supposed to be lit. he said of course!, and continued working, ignoring me for another hour. Finally when he stopped to scratch his head, I said "If they're all supposed to be lit why is one of them not lit? he insisted they all were, but was adamant that they weren't. when he asked which one, and i pointed to it. He tested it verifying the filament was, indeed, open, and demanded to know why id watched for 4 hours and hadn't said that before.

I'm using a WDR3600 router, and I'm having difficulty with getting internet access on the 5 GHz band. Right now the router is broadcasting in both 2.4 and 5 GHz as two separate APs. The 2.4 GHz band works perfectly fine, but when I connect to the 5 GHz band my device is not assigned an IP address and cannot connect to the internet (or even the router configuration page). Unfortunately, I don't have another device capable of accessing the 5 GHz band, so I can't check to see if the computer is at fault, but both the computer and the router have worked together with no problems before, and this computer has done fine in accessing other 5 GHz bands.

I have upgraded to the latest firmware which solved lots of problems regarding unstable wifi connection as well as BitTorrent / P2P transfers.But I also observed that when my BT is on (Transmission for Mac) at around 50KB/s upload and download, my network latency hikes up from some 30ms to 500ms which affects a lot on web browsing or other apps requiring Internet.My BitTorrent app is showing I am merely making some 20 peers connection so I am not convinced that is an ISP problem but it's more about the router.

I can't able to recognize a system - all wifi clients lose connection. When this happens, the ping answer time rech the ~2000 times, then totally lose the connection, the SSID is dissapear - checking with my phone (android - wifi analyzer) and TL-WN822N USB wifi adapter (with the inSSIDer application). Meanwhile the cable clients and the WAN connections works fine, didn't experience anything.If I restart the wifi service with the hardware on/off button, it runs well for some time.This problem appeared when I used the two older official firmware too.
I tried the auto-chanel function width auto channel width, tried to manually set up one of the less interfered channels with both 20MHz and 40MHz channel width, but none of them bring the solution.The intresting thing is, if I change the router with an old D-Link DI-604, the signal is weak, but the wifi connection is stable, with the same TL-WN822N adapter.I tried to guarantee the router, but after two weeks, my reseller said, it looks ok, they - at the TP-Link service - didn't find anything.
linksys router problems Linksys wireless router connected to cable modem. over time router looses connection to internet. rebooting router reestablishes connection. running XP sp3 from laptop connected wirelessly?
I bought a Linksys router last summer for my PC and Xbox. The PC and XBox are hardwired into the router. About two weeks ago, my router began dropping connection throughout the day. Sometimes it happens 3+ times in an hour. Other times it works for several hours before it drops.I upgraded the firmware as one fix and did a hard reset of the router. Still drops connection.I changed the MTU to 1400 and it worked fine for several hours but then dropped again the next morning. Also, like others on the forums, when I changed the MTU and hit Save Changes, it just ran and ran, never timed out...but never showed that it finished the command to save (if you get my meaning).I downloaded the Cisco Wireless Magic program to troubleshoot. It tells the same thing everytime. Unplug your router for 10 seconds and start over...My PC sometimes flashes a warning when I am restarting the router that I am getting Limited or NO Connectivity.
My wireless internet has been acting a bit weird lately. I use a linksys Dual band wireless-N USB adaptor (WUSB600N) to connect to my router, a 2wire 1000sw. I am on windows 7. Recently, the internet has been dropping and reconnecting the connection weirdly; it is apparent in Portal 2 Co-op mode; it says the connection has been lost to the server, and then within 4 seconds, re-joins the server. During that time, the little network icon (the 4 bars in the task bar) says "Identifying."
I have to reboot my router a couple of times per day because I lose WAN access. This occurs with both the wireless and ethernet connections. Basically, I see that I'm connected to the router, but have a self-assigned IP. Power cycling the router does the trick. I never had this problem before, so I'm wondering what's up. The firmware has long been up to date. Router version is 8.0.
So i have this old WRT54GX v2. It have been running fine for the last ~5years. But since this morning i'm losing my wired connection after about 10 sec og connectivity, can't even ping it when it drops. If i turn it off for 10 sec the same problem occurs. Tried both static ip and dhcp. Wireless doesn't work either.
