Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Computer No Longer Work
Nov 14, 2012
I bought a Linksys E1000 wireless router a year or so back. it was loaded onto a computer that no longer works. i have the router and the box but no disc or manual. My laptop and ipad are working fine with the router but i can't get my iphone hooked up and dont think i have the correct password. I dont have any software on my laptop to even figure it out. What can i do to get my phone to use the router?
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'm trying to fix the network at a student housing building and the system is kind of a mess. We bought a new E4200 to replace our old Linksys router which no one knows the admin pw to. We have four switches for 50 connections throughout the four story house and when switching the connections over to the new E4200 all of the wired connections no longer work. Switch back to the old router and presto. How do I need to change the settings with the E4200 to get it to work?
Also, as it's a thick old house the E4200's wireless only covers maybe half of it...I purchased two wireless repeaters to put on the 3rd and 4th floors, are these simple to install with the router?
I can not get my password to work. The threads that I have read, requires a Ethernet cable to be connected but I have a wireless netgear card on the administrator PC how can I find the password to my E1000 router to verify and to change router settings
I am about a level 4 maybe (10 being highest) when it comes to network configuration.I know what a router is, an IP addreess (external ones from ISP that is) and how to get around a little bit like how to access wireless config , edit properties on network connections and run ipconfig..My setup....I have a cable modem with 18mbs line...hooked into a Linksys E1000 wireless (N) router.From that I have 3 laptops setup (and a desktop thats never used).(none of whats next may be important but added it just in case)
Laptop a. is hardlined into wireless router (so I can edit config) and will be main machine it runs Vista Laptop b. is connected to wirless connection from router and will main #2 Laptop c. is connected to wireless router Desktop is connected to wireless router (all others above run XP as OS)
My wife is running some webcam software that uses our internal IP address for its connection.It is no problem for her to connect her cam to the site with one laptop (any of the above) but when she tries to go to laptop b. and run another connection it says "You are currently broadcasting From This IP and cannot start another connection".
p.s. We have also tested bandwidth connection over and over on many sites (via browser) and it seems that when a cam is setup and the bandwidth is displayed what comes from / to the cam is WAYY slower than what we get in our tests...
1. I set a router admin password different from WiFi password(passphrase).
2. I run my Cisco Connect app and it asks me to change my router admin password. If I don't change it - I can not use Cisco Connect app. If I provide my WiFi password then it changes my router admin password.
Maybe it was done to have a "simple" solution - 1 password for everything. But maybe its a bug because router admin password should be different from WiFi password fro security reasons.
I currently have a Linksys E1000 installed and working well. I also have the Cisco software installed on 1 computer. I am purchasing a second laptop and want to put the cisco software on it also. How do I go about doing this without going through another full setup procedure? Do I just install software from the cd? If so how is this done without affecting the existing setup?
Can the software be downloaded without doing an actual setup?
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.
We originally set up Cisco Connect with our E1000 Lynksys Router on a laptop- that has since died. So- I wanted to set up the software on our desktop and so I put in the set-up disk. I keep getting message "We didn't find your router" even though I now have the computer linked directly by ethernet cable. I do have connectivity to internet which I set up using my "Easy set-up key" and have a strong signal. Can't get past the first router step on the set-up disk to install the program- so now do not have Cisco Connect on any computer.
My Dell Dimension is no longer connecting to the internet via the wireless router. I have a dlink DI-524 and a dlink wireless USB key but it no longer connects. This just started today. When I try to repair the connection, it fails on "renewing IP".
OS is Windows XP.
P.S. I have tried power cycling the modem/router but nothing works. Other computers can get on the internet via the wireless router fine.
I have a E1000 N router and I was wondering if I can connect a G wireless adapter to it. I am trying to connect it with my Sanyo LED HDTV, it has the port for a USB but I can't seem to get it to connect. I've tried manually setting it up but I seem to have done it wrong. The reason for trying to connect to the television is Netflix. I learned that you can watch it instantly on your Tv, using the Blue-ray or a basic internet connection. The Blue-ray I currently have is not an acceptable brand, so I am trying the basic internet connection.
How can I reinstall cisco connect on my computer? I was doing a Cisco Connect update on my laptop when I shut it down by accident When I opened the laptop again Cisco Connect was no where to be found in the computer. I have a Linksys E1000 and Windows Vista.
I have recently bought a new computer and have been happily connected to my wireless network for three months. The other day the connection was lost and now I cannot connect to my wireless or parents wireless networks. I can connect via the ethernet only. I will attatch an ipconfig for you to have a look at when I am not connected can see my wireless network connections however when I tempt to connect it says windows cannot manage it. I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit[CODE]
I just installed Tomato firmware (details below) on my wireless-N router and everything appears to be working fine on the router's end. I can connect to the Internet properly with a wired (Ethernet) connection; in fact, that's how I posted this question.
What I cannot do is connect to the router wirelessly in any way. At first, I thought that something was wrong with my wireless security settings, because I read about some incompatibilities between Windows 7 and AES encryption. However, when I changed to TKIP, the issue persisted; when I switched from WPA2 Personal to WEP, the issue persisted; and when I disabled wireless security entirely — just for testing purposes — the issue still persisted.
My Internet search for this issue brought up a lot of old forum and mailing list posts, most of which were useless. The only one that seemed promising suggested disabling Afterburner, but that came disabled by default on my install. I did try enabling it and then disabling it, but it had no apparent effect.
In case it's relevant: before I installed Tomato, I had a somewhat funky install of dd-wrt on the router. The first thing I did after installing Tomato was a full clean of the nvram through the web GUI's Administration → Configuration → Restore Default Configuration menu.
What do I have to do to get wireless running? I only have one computer available at the moment, but I'll try to update later if and when I can borrow more devices for testing.
Linksys WRT160N v3 Tomato Firmware v1.28.9054 MIPSR2-beta K26 Mini Linux kernel 18.104.22.168 and Broadcom Wireless Driver 22.214.171.124 updates
EDIT:This is a computer issue, not a router issue. Two smartphones with wi-fi connections and another computer are all able to connect to the wireless network with no problems. However, the original computer was able to connect to the same router just fine before Tomato was installed. It has an internal wireless-B/G card, and I had Tomato set up to broadcast G-only, so it should have been compatible.
EDIT 2:The computer in question was the only device in the house that wasn't set up for wireless-N, so I went out and bought a Wireless-N USB adapter and changed Tomato to be N-only. Using the new adapter, I get connection again. I suppose it's possible that the computer's OEM internal wireless card failed at exactly the same time that I installed Tomato on the router, but that would be one heck of a coincidence. I'll see if I can connect to some other G or B network next time I'm around one....
Been having random connection drops for the past few weeks where I would see the network connections to the router just drop either on a wireless connection or a wired cat 5 connection. As of tonight I cant connect to the router at all. If I disconnect and reconnect the power after 30 seconds it will come up for a short time but then I will lose it again. linksys as my router is out of warrenty. I'v searched around for similiar problems people have been having, but it seems like mostly involve just the internet connection. I still have the same firmware for the routers as the day I purchased it and the router sits on my desk in a ventilated area not overheating. I can do to further diagnose the problem, I have even tried resetting to factory defaults. I try to diagnose the problem or see if my router is just dead.
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 "126.96.36.199" 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 have an HP SR2170NX desktop set up via DSL and cable to an ATT gateway router that enables wireless for my roaming with my laptop. The laptop works wirelessly even when the cable between the router and desktop is unplugged and the desktop turned off. I would like to equip the desktop with a Cisco-Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter or similar PCI-card to allow for elimination of the cable between the router and the computer.
I mistakenly downloaded and installed version 4 firmware when i should have installed version 2. My system (windows ver. 7) no longer sees the wireless router (WRT54G). I no longer have the install CD and the version 2 firmware does not seem to be available on the website. Is my router now dead in the water?
After I had Prism high speed internet installed (made by Cisco) and I can no longer print using my Dell V313s Wireless printer. I have lost the driver disc that came with the printer and Dell wants to charge me a large fee for support and Prism states that they are not responsible for the printer not talking to the computer.
I have had no problems with the WUSB54GS connecting to the WRT54GS up until last Friday...it can no longer connect to the router and reports that the network cannot be found.When i refresh the list of available networks i can "see" the router on the wireless PC but when an attempt to connect is made,it fails.OK,i rang up Linksys tech support today and we tried everything possible to work out what the problem was e:g uninstalling/reinstalling the software,updating the routers firmware,disabling security,trying all channels 1 thru 11,using WEP,using WPA,changing SSID name,using secure easy setup,using windows wireless configuration,changing USB leads nothing will make the device connect.
I have connected a Seagate Free Agent 500GB to the USB port of my E4200 and while it does work fine, When the drive has been idle for a while, it goes into power saving mode, turning the spindle motor off. This means it takes a few seconds to access the disk. Not a problem, but apparently, those few seconds are enough for either Windows or the E4200 to decide that the disk is no longer accessible. The share is still available, but I get missing folders and files, files won't open or are not found, and backups job with Acronis True Image will fail because it thinks the share is unavailable.Sometimes, constantly refreshing the view and opening files at random will revive the share, but often, the only way to get it back is to restart the computer.
The problem is definitely related to the power saving. If I leave a video clip playing or similar, so there's always some disk access preventing the drive from entering power save mode, it works fine. But 15-20 minutes of no disk activity immediately causes problems.
I have a BEFW11S4 router when to put in password for the router and must have had a typo as I can no longer access router.Tried the factory reset on the rear of unit to no avail. Is their any way to get access as I have the main computer wire to the router. I need to get into the unit to move the channel number.
I have had my router for at approx. a year and a half and it has worked flawlessly. Now my PC which is plugged into the router still works fine, I'm just not able to connect wirelessly anymore. I've tried the basic things like unplugging and rebooting, nothing changes. The lights still say it is transmitting.
I had a simple PPTP VPN server running behind my old DLink router. When I installed the E3000 the VPN clients could no longer connect. The port forwarding for PPTP is turned on and VPN passthrough is enabled. The PPTP server reported GRE47 checksum failed. The linksys chat tech was not beneficial. How to get a PPTP route to work?
For some reason I can no longer make Wi-Fi calls with my E1200 router. I have checked with my ISP and T-mobil. They both tell me that everything on their respective ends is working correctly. The only piece of the equation is the router.
After updating the firmware of th EA6500 to Ver.188.8.131.52072 I have no longer access to the GUI options of Speed Test, Guest Access, Parental Controls, Media Prioritization and USB Storage. I have reset the router to factory default settings and still none of the items are showing on the web page the only options available are:Connectivity,Troubleshooting.Wireless.
I have a new Linksys E2100 that was working well with an old Verizon modem. Then recently that modem gave up the ghost and I was issued another one (Westel Model 6100G). I have no problems with internet connectivity when connecting directly from my harddrive to the Verizon modem. I am also not having trouble connecting to the Linksys routher as I am able to see my wireless connection with no problem. However, when I try to set up the connnection with the E2100 in the loop (yes, it's connected correctly) I no longer have internet access.
I tried de-installing and re-installing the Linksys software (thinking maybe there was some new configuration that would be auto-detected with a new set-up), but this didn't work. I suspect that if the problem is with my Linksys router and not with my Verizon modem that there might be something that could be done to reconfigure something manually but I do not know enough about connections and wireless systems to trust myself not to mess something up.
At this point I'm assuming it's a Linksys issue since I know that my Verizon modem can connect me to the internet, so works properly. Is there some known incompatibility with this Linksys model and the Westell 6100G modem?
I have had a WRT54G V3 router working successfully for a number of years now with a couple wireless PCs through a cable modem with Comcast as my ISP. All of a sudden yesterday, neither PC could access the internet. No changes had been made to the router.
I contacted Comcast and they of course had me hard-wire one of my PCs into the cable modem. That worked and I was able to access the internet. However, when I tried to put the router back in place (in either a wired or wireless fashion), I could not access the internet.
I've tried following the online Linksys troubleshooting document ion. The lights that should be lit on the router are lit. I can access the router setup web page which shows the settings still intact. I've tried going through the power sequencing to no avail. Comcast says my router is the culprit of my problem, but I don't know why it would all of a sudden stop working. My wireless printer still works so it detects a signal and my PC shows it's connected, but no internet access is possible.
What do I need to do? Are there any other diagnostic tools available? I'm out-of-warranty.
