Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 With 2 Networks - How To Make Guest Address Secure
Dec 31, 2011
Having just installed the E1000 why have I got a public network address '####' which is security type WPA2 -PSK and also public network address '#### - Guest' which is security type - unsecured.Anyone can log onto either wireless network connection but only with the correct password.How do I remove the '####' address and also how do I make the '#### - Guest' address a secure one.
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...
I just installed my EA4500 router and it was amazingly simple. My only question is it shows two wireless connections available: The secured one I set up and the another network with the same name that says "guest" and is NOT secured. Is there a way to either disable the unsecured guest network or to secure the guest network?
Purchased E4200 this week and did simple setup via CD setup (Cisco connect). Set up main name and password. Cisco Connect assigned "-guest" to end of main name for the guest account. Gave guest account its own password. Both main and guest accounts were broadcasting OK -- but guest account was not secure and could be accessed without password. (All software and firmware upgrades were done during initial setup).Reset the E4200 and restarted things from the CD setup. Created main account, main account password, and guest password again. In advanced settings, left basic wireless settings at initial settings, changed wireless secutiy to WPA2 Personal. Still having the guest account being broadcast in unlocked status. (Have turned off guest access for now until I can get password protection for it).
I have a Linksys E1000 router. The firmware is 2.1.00 Build 7 August 30, 2010. I would like to turn on or enable the guest access function. I have gone to 192.168.1.1, and do not find anything there about guest access. At the Wireless tab, the choices are Basic Wireless Setting, Wireless Security, Wireless MAC filter, and Advamced Wireless Setting. Tfhan
I want to disable the guest access connection on E1000 wireless router but this option is not in the firmware menu. So, now I read that I need to use Cisco Connect on the CD to change this feature. When I run the Cisco Connect software, it says it can't configure the router (probably because I already have it configured). Why doesn't the Cisco Connect software simply take me to the settings where I can change the guest access feature? Why does it try to re-configure the router? Whoever designed this at Cisco was probably smokin some medical MJ because it doesn't make any sense that I have to go through so many hoops to do something so simple.
I used Cisco connect to set up guest access with a secure password. Cisco Connect now indicates guess access is allowed and shows the password. However, when I actually try to connect to the guest network, it shows no security at all, and I can join the network without a password.
The Cisco E1000 I just purchased provides two connections: a main connection, and one for "guest access." I've successfully disabled the need for password on the main, but the guest access still requires that I assign a password. How do I make this connection open and accessible as well?
I just bought a E1000 and connected it to my cable modem. I can connect to the internet with my wired PC and wired Xbox 360 with no problems. For some reason on my wireless laptop I can only connect to the internet by the Guest connection. When I connect to the regular router SSID I get local only access, no internet.
I have sent up a wireless network in a large building using WAG120N Modem Router and four E1000 wireless routers set as access points. The E1000's have the DHCP switched off to enable roaming so the WAG120N takes care of all that.
I switched from Time Capsule with AirPort to E2000 and have a problem with configuration.I use the same IPs as in AirPort and E2000 gives me an error:"The WAN IP address cannot be the same subnet as the Guest Network IP address" and I can't save configuration.But in my opinion they are different.I use "Static IP" option and I have IPs from my ISP: [code] So WAN IP is different subnet as LAN and I don't know what to do now. It worked with these settings in AirPort and here I can't proceed.
Is there any way to make networks hidden through the WiFi Smart software? I have a Cisco Linksys E4200V2. I have gone through everything to try figure out how to make my S.S.I.D. to not be broadcasted, but seems like the only way to make it hidden is to use the Origonal Firmware make it as hidden, then install the New Firmware and software. Seems like Cisco may have missed this option. I do know a lot of people would prefer their Networks hidden for a little security. I know it isn't much, cause if someone wants to get that info it's not hard to get it. But for people who don't know or don't want to waste all the time to find the Hidden Network name can be turned away, for going through that extra step.
I have a problem viewing my security cam on my android IP cam app.I forwarded port on my router to my security cam then fixed security cam to have a static IP but my computer being on DHCP, after reboot changed IP, so I lost connection to android IP cam app.I read on a forum,that If your camera is using DHCP,setup your router so that it always gives the same static IP address for the camera based on it's MAC address but where do you set this up a Linksys E1000 router & on Samsung Y? so I can view my security cam on my android IP cam app.?
I just want to allow specified computers wired access to the internet via the E1000 router. Here is the problem I am currently working on:
(1) Setup the E1000 unit to allow only one PC 'C1' (MAC: 91:E6:BA:25:91:58) wired access to the internet.
(2) Add another PC (unknown MAC address) to the LAN side of the E1000 unit and see if it is being blocked by the 'Access Restriction' policy that was setup.
(3) Can’t get the above done – the second PC is able to surf the internet although the policy is enabled.
Notes:(a) Ref: 'Access Restrictions' web page or see Page 26 in the User Guide .(b) The unit has the latest firmware already installed: Firmware Version: 2.1.01 build 5Dec 3, 2010.(c) The internet port of the unit goes to the ADSL modem in my house.(d) Unplugged the unit for 10 seconds as advised by one of your technicians, still no difference.(e) I can deny PCs, but the allowing only specified ones seems not to be doing anything.By the way, can the E3000 or E4200 do the above?
I have been using a Dell desktop for many years now as my primary computer. Recently I received a brand new Sony VAIO laptop. So as to make the laptop connect to the internet wirelessly, I hooked up a Linksys router (Linksys model # BEFSR41) and a Linksys access point (Linksys model # WAP200). Everything is working flawlessly except for one big problem. My network is listed as "unsecure". What steps do I have to take to make my network "secure"? The operating software in the laptop is Windows Vista. How to make my network secure. Let me just mention that the laptop and desktop are home computers and are both primarily used for "fun and leisure". No business "stuff"

I'm a court reporter trying to set up a connection between my laptop and my court reporting machine, which has built in wifi capabilities. My court house has public wifi but there is always some interference which causes transmission between my laptop and machine to freeze. I was told I could create my "own wifi" between my machine and laptop if i bought a router. is this possible with this hardware?I don't need the internet or want an internet connection. I have the internal modem in my laptop. I just want to provide a connection between my laptop and writing machine wirelessly. That is, data being sent back and forth between the two. (Like your headset and smartphone connected with Buetooth). I can use the Bluetooth method to connect the two, but I opted for wireless connection because Bluetooth still can have some interference when attorneys come in the courthouse building with a Blackberry smartphone. I heard this router will provide a secured, private wifi connection between my laptop and machine.It doesn't say anywhere in the instructions that how to do this or I just don't know which method to use this router for what I want to do. Is it WISP, AP or BRIDGE, etc...?
Any problems with the guest network on the ea4500 with the cloud firmware? I am losing guest clients after about 24 hours and the re-authentication fails. you enter the guest password and nothing happens until you reboot the router.
So we just got a new router for our higher speed internet. The modem is an Actiontec Q1000 from Qwest. We used to live out in the middle of nowhere, so we never needed to secure our internet. Now we live close to neighbors and we need to encrypt the wireless. When I try any encryption, however, I can't connect at all. I have tried temporarily having it unlocked and I could connect without a problem. It also works fine when I'm using my Ethernet cord.
Heres my IPCONFIG.

I have a Cisco E1000 that I was changing settings on and now I cannot connect when I have a secure connection. I can connect when I disable security, I can also connect with a USB wireless adapter. Anyone else can connect to the wireless, but I cannot with my internal wireless adapater if the router is in secure mode, but I can with unsecure mode. I'm not sure what I changed or when, or if it is a coincidence. I'm using Windows Vista Home Edition. I have two wireless connections. The wireless 2 with the netgear adapter is working but the wireless with the Atheros is not. The wireless connector works with other other networks, just not the Cisco E1000 and the Cisco E1000 works with other computers. When I connect with the Atheros to the Cisco it just shows "Local Only".
I am completing a project as part of my 2nd year studies and I am at the stage of testing on the network but before I go ahead with this stage, I would like some feedback on what I could do to make my network more efficient and secure.passwords are: ciscothe link is the packet tracer file I am working on.url
One project I want to do is get them a network storage drive (Except, due to budget reasons, all I get is the 1Tb external they've had for a year now, and a NAS adapter). I can set up the NAS no problem, but here is the catch. From the ISP we have a B/G Router/Modem combo, and for range, we have a d-link B/G/N router.
I would like to have the ISP's G network open to cover our lobby for free access, and have the D-Link's N to cover the far offices, WITH access to the files. Now the issue, how do I set up the D-Link router, to only share the NAS files with devices conected directly to it.
i now learning about SSLVPN, and i already install license in 1941 with SSL and security9 License, i learning how to make a gateway for SSLVPN full tunnel, but i meet an obstacles, when i go to my wan ip address https://wan ip address, the browser give this
SSL connection error Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.
I have a requirement to set up a guest SSID for contractor so that they can use the internet while in the office.
Security say that all traffic on this SSID should be isolated and directed straight to the firewall, with no chance of contamination into the company network infrastructure.
With the 5508, my understanding is using the setting up a guest account functionality built in will achieve this, but all traffic would end up at the wireless controller. How do I then put a direct forward for all traffic to the firewall which will only affect the guest traffic?
I have a 2504 WLC and x6 1142 AP's and currently have this working on our corporate network (still in test phase). So far so good and looking at authentication via radius next for this.
We have a separate ADSL connection that is external to the corporate network and what i would like to do is based on SSID (in this case i'll use "Guest Access") i would like any clients etc that visit to be able to connect to our wireless but not be able to connect to our corporate network.
There are free vpn services. When the vpn adds a pad lock to the network icon, is it then secure to use it on insecure networks like public wifi to get internet access? I mean, the password is given to you from the vpn provider's website.
