Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 - How To Open NAT
Feb 16, 2011
I've been searching off and on for the past couple months trying to figure out what we could do to our router to open our NAT, after having both the PS3 and Xbox 360 tell me I've got moderate NAT. I tried a DMZ with my PS3 having a static IP, I tried UPnP. I messed with firewall settings, to no avail.
I recently found something that did work however, on Google. Basically what happened was, I needed to reset the router and change a few settings on top of enabling UPnP I didn't know about(CTS Protection, remote management) how they could have anything to do with translation of data.
But like I said, after doing a huge step by step walk through, I was able to get open NAT in the network tests of both PS3 and 360(even though the PS3 obviously still says Type 2. It used to say Type 2, but it also used to have an error code at the bottom of the page). I've checked in games on each console, and they tell me I've got open NAT.
Now I still have one tiny problem. Red Dead Redemption. I play Red Dead Redemption online with two friends(who, incidentally, have the same router as me), and we haven't been able to communicate if we were using routers. We still can't, but I'm thinking that it's not my router anymore. I'm thinking his router has incorrect settings. Am I correct?
I have a PS3, and i play allot of video games such as all COD game especially MW2. It says i have a strict or moderate NAT. My router is in the same room as the PS3, so i should have a Open Nat.Also i have another question, i bought this Epson printer from Best Buy, i was wondering if I can connect to it Wireless, but i think i cant connect to it wireless cause i dont see the WiFi Certification on the printer or anything hints that it can connect wireless
I have a linksys E1000 and i'm trying to open my NAT for xbox live. I mostly need it for call of duty: black ops because i cant connect to friends and i lag out of lobbies with friends. I've been trying to open my NAT for hours and nothing will work. ive tried forwarding ports, DMZ, UPnP, MTU sizes, and security things.
I have a E1000 and already for the longest time I've been trying basically everything possible to get my NAT open from being strict.I've looked around and tried everything I came across including the port forwarding. The only thing different from what I have and from what I have seen is that my router's ip is 192.168.0.1 instead of 192.168.1.1 that everyone else seems to have. I don't know if that affects my NAT in any certain way either. What I can possbily do or what might be the problem as to why I can't get my NAT opened?
I am having a NAT issue with my two xboxes. The router is an e1000 v2.1 firmware 2.1.02. One xbox is wired into the router and the other has a wireless adapter. The wireless xbox gets open nat automatically, while the wired one's nat is strict. If i mess with DMZ and turn UPnP off i can get the wired to be open but the wireless one to be strict. Also port forwarding does not seem to work because only one or the other xboxes will get an open NAT. I do have the the correct ports in the port triggering section set to on but that does not seem like it works.
I am trying to Open some ports on a Linksys E1000. When I run the Shield Up test to see the status of my ports the ones I want to open are closed which is normal but when i try to portforward any port the status goes from closed to stealth. That really does not make any sense to me why when trying to open a port it becomes even more secure then if I did not try to open it. I turned off the firewall and the only thing I see might be the wireless security on the router. I have no idea what that means tho so idk if it is even a firewall.
I own a E1000 router that I use with several wireless machines. Unfortunately, I cannot connect to the configuration of the router by typing url...in a browser, be it wireless or weirdly. For example, Firefox displays "Connection has been reinitialized". Furthermore, when I launch Cisco Connect, it only shows the error "Unable to connect to router". I tried to switch my router off and on, but that doesn't work. Totally resetting the router solves the problem, but not definitely.Is there a solution that does not require resetting my router?
My guest can't use my wireless network and I can not add more devices like a ipad2. Got a new ipad2 for my son for Christmas been trying to set it up for Christmas, so on Christmas day I am not trying to do the set up. My problem is I can not get it to log on to the network. I have been putting in the same pass word all my other computers in the house use but it will not work...
My wireless router (E1000) was accidentally unplugged. Since then the wireless LED light doesnt come on and the router cannot be detected. All the other lights are on. I tried to reset it but I dont think it worked, since the power LED didnt blink as its supposed to do after holding reset for 10-15 seconds (or more!!).
I've been using the E1000 for months. I have 2 iphones, an ipod, a windows 7 netbook and a macbook connected wirelessly to it. It's been set at wpa2/wpa mixed mode all this time without a problem. Out of the blue: no wireless connection on any device. I restarted the modem, router, PC's, phones, etc. I've updated the firmware. The only way I can get a wireless connection is to use wep. How can I get the better security and speed of wpa2 back?
I am trying to access the internet with my ipod and it is picking up my wireless connection but it is asking for a password, how do I get my password. I don't remember seeing a password when I hooked up my router several months ago. I called Cisco for some technical support but they wanted money to get me and I am not paying them a dime.
With the E1000 tthe wireless devices they seem to work just fine, I can access the internet just fine.
For my desktop PC in oder to use the router to get on the internet or to even use the Cisco Connect to check the router, the E1000 needs to be rebooted. I am unable to access the router otherwise. I have tried 3 different LAN cards all with the same results.
The latest firmware notes do not look like upgrading the firmware will work. My Router info from Cisco connect
Model name: Linksys E1000 Model number: E1000 Serial number: CVN21L422937 Firmware version: 2.1.01 build 5 Operating system: Windows 7 SP 1 Software version: 1.3.11006.1 Connection type (WAN): unknown
Things seem to slow down significantly to the point of loosing connectiviety. When I check, my mips are 150 or so. Tried disconnecting and connecting again but didn't work. When I power down the router and power it up, I get 300 mps again but doesn't last too long
A lady gave me E1000 along with an IMB Thinkpad because her husband was the main user on the internet. I have an intel iMac 10.4.11, DSL. I have not yet connected to either device via the router. I am new to wireless routers. I have been to the configuration page
I have a Linksys E1000 router which was working fine. My hard drive crashed; I replaced the hard drive and now my router is not recognized. I have reset it and tried to reinstall it with the CD. Nothing works.
I had an E1000 for a couple of years that worked OK. Then it went nuts--sporadically dropped the signal, wouldn't show its web page, etc.--maybe a power surge, who knows? So I tossed it and got a new one on the theory that it would be a plug in replacement .The new unit had a good signal, but also wouldn't show its web page, so I couldn't configure security. I removed Network Magic and everything else I could see pertaining to the old unit. However, the CD for the new unit still gives me: " Your router has already been set up. You need to use an Easy Setup Key that you can use to get other computers connected." Needless to say, I don't have such a thing. Cisco Connect is not installed at this point, so I can't go into it to create one.How can I purge the remains of the old unit so the new one will install properly?
I have E4200 connected to Internet. It is configured with NAT. My side of the router is set to 10.10.10.0 and DFG is set to 10.10.10.254. Server is connected at 10.10.10.1 and is DHCP host.I now have E1000 that I want to connect downstream side of the E4200 (located on the other side of the building). I want the E1000 to be an extension of the existing network so the whole building looks like one network. I'm not sure how to configure the E1000. I assume I need to disable NAT but I'm not sure how to configure the Internet IP addresses of the router and nro am I sure how to configure the local network side of the router.As I write this, I wonder if I connect one of the Ethernet ports of the E1000 to the E4200 and just leave the Internet side unplugged?
I'm trying to set up my E1000 router and when I run the Cisco Connect software that came with the router I get a message that says that it can't find the router, I've tried running it with my computer connected to the router and not connected. I've looked through the FAQ section and didn't really find anything. I'm trying to set it up on a laptop, it's a Vaio running Windows 7, I don't if that makes any difference.
I am facing issue with my cisco wireless E1000, the wireless connection on the laptop reset on its own. Its like there is a timer and it reset's the wireless connection after some time. I was unable to measure the time after which it resets but its happening too frequently causing multiple internet apps to fail example if I am downloading something it will fail as the internet connection is reset. The firmware I am running on the rotuer is 2.0.01 and I have configured DHCP on the LAN, I am experiencing this problem with 3 laptop that I use at home which uses both G and N networks.
When I connect my modem directly to my computer (modem > computer) it works just fine, internet connects and everything through the direct ethernet connection.But when I connect the modem to the router and then try to connect wireless with any other computer (modem > router > wireless) nothing works. Not even when I have it connected directly from the router to the ethernet on the main computer. (Which has ALWAYS worked until now.
my brand new Linksys E1000 wireless router. I am really struggling and cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.
I live in The Netherlands, have a modem (DSL I think...) and can connect wired through the modem with no problems.
I installed the E1000 with the CD, followed all the steps and my laptop is finding the network. However, it's only local, no internet and I don't understand why. Have tried to connect (wired) my computer to the E1000 and the E1000 to the modem but that doesn't work either.
However, my 13" Macbook (running Lion) sometimes finds if hard to connect after I turn it on. I will have to continously turn off and on the wifi of the macbook to have it force to look at wifi networks. It will not be able to see also other wifi networks which are present in my neighbors which my windows 7 and other machines can see. After playing around with it I found that the macbook will connect to wifi only after I connect it momentarily via cable. I do this everytime I turn on my macbook.I just upgraded to a Macbook Pro running on Lion and the same thing happened. I tried the same solution of connecting first via cable but to my disappointment, would not see any wifi network including my neighbor's which again the other machines can see. So I am stuck with using cable for now.
My e1000 was working fine until it was accidentally unplugged. Now it doesn't work. I downloaded the set up program from the site and tried to run it, but it does not recognize an internet connection when I have the modem connected to the router and the router connected to the PC. The internet works when I connect the modem directly to the PC. I have unplugged everything and restarted the PC several times and tried running the software again, but no dice.
my E1000 router locks up and I lose Internet connectivity until I unplug the router's power cord, wait for 10 seconds or so, then plug it back in and let it restart. This seems to be triggered (a.) when I land on a web page with intensive graphics, etc., that takes a while to load, or (b.) if I launch a web page really quickly while another one already is up. it doesn't just happen spontaneously when I'm working on the computer. This computer I'm working on is old and slow, which is why as per my earlier inquiry about having to reconfigure the router and network , I'm looking at changing to an up to date and faster model. I just updated to the latest firmware, probably a week or so ago, but the router was doing this before then and still is doing it now.
I have my router set up and life was good. i now want to forward a port. i go into apllications/gaming put the application name, the port i want to forward and click enable. Save changes and i get a changes save message. When the browser goes back to the applications/gaming screen no port shows as being forwarded. If i go to canyouseemenow.org the port shows as being closed.
My husbands laptops hard drive crashed and burned. Some of the memory was saved and loaded on the new hard drive one good thing is that I don't have to reload the wireless into the system. Okay that is fine but the problem it ask for the code key that I loaded it with when I first installed it. I lost it. Then I got on through the guest system and I forgot the password. I just want to get on and update the windows so that my husband will be able to enjoy his laptop again. I don't like sharing computers .
Just got the new Linksys E1000, and follow the Cisco Connect to setup. No IP received from the service provider (which is Fibre-to-the-building, no modem is required). Goto the setup page and confirmed that the connection type is "DHCP".Once i unplug the cable from E1000 (internet port) and plug into my old wireless router, everything work nicely. The internet connection & cable itself seems fine. Switch the cable into notebook, and get the IP as well, it seems the service provider didn't lock the mac address of the devices (routuer nor PC). Cloned the mac address but nothing improved.Tried release the IP before unplug from the old router, switch off old router, and wait 10mins before connected to E1000 but still no luck.
