Linksys Wireless Router :: Disable WPS On WRT120N?
Aug 20, 2011
Is there anyway to disable WPS on the WRT120N router?
All I can do is switch the "view" from WPS to manual configuration in the management console...this doesn't actually disable anything.Maybe I don't understand WPS security, but what's the point of using a 20 character WPA2 password if WPS has an 8 digit PIN that I can't change or disable?
I'm about fed up with with having this issue that no one can seem to solve. It dates back to when I owned a WRT54G router. I started experiencing random disconnects with the router, both wired and wireless. I only owned the router a year and figured it was going bad.
So I purchased this WRT120N router late August. Soon after I set the router up, low and behold the same problem started. I've called my ISP a couple occasions and they tell me that everything is fine from their end. I've spoken with Linksys tech support on 3 seperate occasions. I have changed the MTU to 3 different values and upgraded the firmware. The 2nd support tech suggested that I do those two things. To my surprise this worked for 2 or 3 weeks with no problem. The same problem started again just last night disconnecting intermittingly. I spoke with another support tech and they suggested that disable the SPI Firewall protection and Anonymous internet request. That did not work for the brief time I had this disabled.
More into the problem, when it disconnects the modem seems fine but the activity light on it stops as it should. The router itself appears to reboot, then when it comes back up the connection restores. What could possibly cause this? I currently have version 1.0.02.This is getting very frustrating and I am getting very near not using Linksys/Cisco products any longer.
I bought a new Linksys WRT120N modem which is working great, but the wireless for some reason isn't working properly. My computer is able to sense the exsistence of the connection tho. I've tried using other computers to connect to it, and still the same problem, can sense but cannot connect.
I currently have a network using ipaddress 10.1.x.x and 10.2.x.x and 10.3.x.x with a subnet of 255.0.0.0 I purchased 2 of the wrt120n wireless routers for testing and find I can not use the subnet of 255.0.0.0.
I have a WRT120N and have been trying to set up priorities using the QoS under the tab Applications and Gaming. Everytime I "Save Settings" it does not save. It refreshes the page and deletes everything I just set up.
I did Live Chat and they told me it was my router. I returned it and got another one... Same problem
I'm using an Static IP adress and i'm using wrt120n router, but to connect the internet i have plugged the internet cable in the 1,2,3,4 (doesn't matter which one) slot. So now i'm just using the wirelss part of the router without "routering" if i can say so. When i put the internet cable in the Internet slot of the router, the laptop just cant connect to internet - it shows Unidentified network without Internet Access. I don't know what type of changes i have to make in the WEB interface of the router. I think i have to set the type of the connection - now is DHCP and may be to put my IP adress, DNS, Subnet mask in the router settings, but don't know how exactly. I've tried to set up the router with the CD-interface but same thing happened - Unidentified network when the cable is plugged in the Internet (yellow) port. How to set up the router to be a router, not just a wireless switch?
My roommate and I recently got a WRT120N to replace an older Linksys router that was exhibiting the same problems with less frequency. Indeed, the entire reason we got the new router was to fix these problems. Alas, they have become worse.Anyways, what's happening is that the router constantly resets itself. It does this every 20 minutes to an hour and doesn't seem to be related to how much traffic it's dealing with.It's not just the internet going down, it's the entire network, and not even just the wireless part. My computer has a wired connection to the router and, and I get told "A network cable has been unplugged" every time it happens. Then, if I look down at the router, I see no flashing lights, just the steady glow of the power light. It always fixes itself after 10-15 seconds, but it's very annoying. Certainly, playing games online or having a conversation on Skype is made more difficult.As previously mentioned, we replaced our older router because it was exhibiting the same behavior, but the new one does it with greater frequency. At the very least, the router does reset itself instead of needing us to cycle the power. The setup was slightly different with the old router: I was using a wireless connection with a WMP54Gv4 which I've had to disable since it bluescreens the moment it so much as sniffs a signal from the WRT120N?
I just bought a WRT120N to set up with my new Gateway Windows 7 64-bit using Cablevision cable internet. When I go through the steps from the CD to install, the wizard does not find the connection. When the internet is plugged directly into the computer, it works fine. If I have the router plugged in first and then run the install CD, it picks up the router as an existing router but I can't get it to install
I have a WRT120N router installed in my office.All PC and Laptops are connected to it via WiFi.there are about 3 PC and 4 Laptops.The WiFi keeps going Off now and then..and comes back on in a minitue or so.
I plan on replacing my linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router with a new linksys WRT120N wireless router. Should I completely remove and unplug the old router before inserting the startup CD and beginning the installation process for the new router?
I have several computers and printers connected to a WRT120N router which is connected to 10mpbs DSL. The computers are all running WIN7 and are hardwired to the router. On the one PC, it keeps losing network connection. I've tried upgrading the router's firmware, reset, etc. to no avail.
I think it may be related to the same IP address being assigned to multiple machines connected to the router. Is there a way to set specific IP addresses to each item connected to the router to see?
I don't have any problem with the wireless computers connected to the router but the wired one keep geeting disconnected. I'm loosing the internet many times a day on thiis one. Like I said the wireless is ok. My old router on my computer ( wired) was working well before I installed the wrt120n.
I've recently bought a WRT120N router, when I install the router using the CD an error occured error 322 New router or gateway not detected. I tried to download new version of firmware but it didnt work.
I can't access the web based setup via 192.168.1.1. I've had this problem since I swapped to Static Ip from PPPoE. I changed internet provider and now when it type 192.168.1.1 in the browser it says Internet explorer can't show the web page. I've tried Crome and FireFox but with the same result. I followed the instructions in [URL] but to no result.
I replaced a WRT120N router with a new one thinking that the old one was damaged. During setup, the router wasn't recognized. I used the same connection for a line from the internet to my LAN connectin and the line works fine. Connecting through the router is no good.
I am considering to purchase a Linksys Wireless router, but I just don't know which one to select.There are so many different types that seem to have very similar (if not equal) specs.If I just limit myself to the WRT120N, the WRT160N and the E1000, they all have 4 ethernet ports (10/100), and they all support 802.11 b/g/n for the wireless part.Obviously they all promise a blazing performance, and wireless coverage throughout the whole house, without (many) blind spots.But if their specs are the same, why are they different types?
Several days ago there was a huge storm, and I think a thunder burned the WAN port of my linksys wrt120n router. Everything else is working good, I can detect the local network but I don't have internet. My internet connection is also working good. My question is, do I have a possibility to use some of LAN port like a WAN? I'm only using 2 of 4 LAN ports. It would be very useful because it's a pity to buy another router just for a not working WAN port.
I am trying to manually setup a WRT120N router. I am using my laptop (hard wired) for the initial setup. Okay, everything is working fine until I unplug the ethernet cable and try to go wireless. Will not connect to my network. I am also having this problem with all my other devices.
I had everything running fine on a WRT54G, I just wanted to try out the WRT102N. I did change the SSID name form what I was using on the WRT54G.
I'm having an issue where essentially my only course of action is to unplug the router and plug it back in. I can connect my laptop (Dell Inspiron N4010) and my phone (HTC Inspire) once. But then if I put my computer to sleep, or I take my phone out of the wireless range and come back, I cannot connect again. I've gone through and played with the settings (changing the upnp, the beacon intervals, the channel, etc) but to no avail. Invariably, I always have to come back to unplugging and plugging back in.
Also have a Kobo E-Reader and a wireless Canon printer. The whole point of a wireless printer was so that it would stay connected and I can print from my laptop. This router is making this useless.
My mother in law bought my daughter a impression android tablet for Christmas it connects fine at public hotspots but I can not get it to connect to our wrt120n router at home. I have tried everything I know to add it. It asks for the password then says getting IP address then disconnects.
the kids received an iTouch for Christmas and I've spent the last 3 hours trying to get them connected to our home network. I have an existing network with two computers, I'm using a WRT120N router, the iTouch is picking up the network but when we put the password in we get an "unable to join network" message.
My Cisco Linksys WRT120N router keeps disconnecting, my family and me are all using the wireless connection. But sometimes the router just disconnect us all, its like its restarting, it only close down for like 5 - 10 secounds and then its back on. Sometimes it does it like every secound hour and sometimes it does it 3 times in 10 min. I usually play games on it and even tho I am the only one using it, it still disconnects. We got 2 wireless cameras running on a secound router that is merged (Thats what the nerd that setted it up for us told me) with the primary existing router. I am not really that good at computer I just dont want to get disconnected all the time.
I am trying to install and use EchoLink on my pc's and they require port forwarding for 5198-5200 but I'm having trouble with theTo IP Address" as I don't know what # to use. It says I can't use 192.168.1.1 since it's the same as the LAN IP address so what do I use? I am trying to follow the instructions on [URL] If I leave it just as 192.168.1. it won't accept it and if I use any other number, it accepts it but I still can't get through.
Turns out one of the relatives changed the router name and password, and in a fit of brilliance, forgot to WRITE THE NEW USERNAME/PASSWORD DOWN!So I typed in 192.168.1.1 and tried literally every combination I know. NOTHING works tried rebooting the WRT120N. I tried both holding the reset button in, as well as holding the reset button in along with pulling the power adapter cord. Neither of these achieved the desired result (which would be the resetting of the factory username and password to "admin/admin".
COX cable was out yesterday doing some work outside our apartment building. Now, our CISCO LinkSYS WRT120N won't work. I was working before COX cable came out and has been working without problem for the past two years.When I plug the harddrive into slot 1 in the back of the router, "4" lights up. When I plut it into slot 4, "1" lights up. When I plug it into slot 2, "3" lights up, and when I plug it into slot 3, "2" lights up.I tried the router software, but when I reach the plug the router in step, the soft ware returns after a couple minutes and says it cannot locate the router, even though the router lights are on.
I have a WRT120N router.it goes alright in connection wise but for my ps3 my Nat type is strict which wont let me join in some of my mate's partie's or host a game. And i REALLY wanna fix it by opening my nat. I've basically tried everything port forwarding but when you save it when port forwarding, it doesn't save like it look's like on the video's i have seen on YouTube.I've done that DMZ thing which also didn't work.I've basically done everything on YouTube and other site's.I'm just wondering if it's just the router. Or just the way i have it all setup because my router is setup in a different room with the computer which is hooked up with the modem and my ps3 is in my room which is a different room and is just connected threw WiFi my connection on the ps3 is wireless obviously.
