Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 - IP Ranges As Access Point / Bridge Mode
Mar 18, 2013
I have a Cisco 880 (supplied by my company and as such I have little access to the control panel). I have a Linksys (Cisco) E1200 to use as an access point. Cisco setup (love it!) but the simple setup gives the E1200 an ip range starting at 192.168.1.1 while the Cisco 880 range is 192.168.185.113. I need to have all connections in the same ip rage (192.168.185.xxx) for remote monitoring. What is the best way to accomplish this? Bridge mode (I don't need Guest Mode which I read is not possible in bridge mode)? Disable DHCP on the E1200?
I have spent most of the weekend trying to get this router to act as a proper Access Point.
When it does work (Stay connected) speeds and latency are rotten. If I go back to Routing Mode this thing kicks butt, but I isolate all devices attached to a different subnet and trying to set up proper routes has proved imposable. Firmware 1.0.2 r 13
The online help stated to connect to the "internet interface" when in Bridge Mode DHCP Server Is not broadcasting to on the wireless or wired interfaces.
If I used the wired interface as the uplink I can broadcast the DHCP to any device on wired but again nothing to the Wireless. When I "Show Routing Table" I see two static routes pointing to the ATT router for the Wired/Wireless Interfaces.. 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 (my Gateway) Wired/Wireless (my Gateway) 255.255.255.0 0.0.0. Wired/Wireless
AP mode should only be working in Broadcast. By connecting the Wired Interfaces alone up to my switched network should not use the router at all. If you force all traffic to my router all traffic has to be inspected by the firewall You create a bottleneck my router interface is 10/100.
ATT 2 Wire Gateway/Router with pinholes. 10/100/1000 Non managed 24 port Switch Network. Server infrastructure serving DNS/DHCP.
I decided to buy this after reading it offered Bridge/Access Point mode instead of getting the WAP610 because I wanted to have the option to change to routing mode or AP mode. Since my ATT Uverse Router Wireless is “g” it takes forever to transfer files to and from my servers.
Well I accidentally put the router in bridge mode. It's a e1200 or 2500 I'm not exactly sure. But I was wondering how I can get it out? I can't access the web interface at 192.168.1.1 however I can access my modem's interface at 192.168.254.254.
Can I use two WAP54G APs in bridge mode to file share. I'm not interested in sharing internet. Just need to share files between two desktops. Would this work if I set a static IP on the two computers or do I need to have a router in the network as well?
Just bought a new router and repeater for a wifi hotspot i am currently running.. I thought i was havng problems with the repeater after i change from router to a server, (and i'm now using a router in bridge mode) so the server is managing all the dhcp.. etc, Hence, the router is Running as an access point. The server which is a Hotspot Server does the rest. For some reason, repeaters, do connect to the access point apparently, but when connecting the client to the repeater (instead of access point) I can't get internet access. although i do get access to the repeater setup.and access point setup too.. or if that is the fact that repeaters must be connected to a router, not access point? should I use it as a WDS? or AP-wds? I have a Cisco Lynksys e1200 router (which i'm using as access point) and an Encore ENXWI-1AN45 3 in one range extender?
We have 4 access points in my network i want configure 1 is ap mode another 3 is bridge mode Is it possible to configure in 4410 N ? if i configure bridge mode can i use single SSID&Securtiy key for all aps. how to i use these 4 access points
Trying all week to get my E1200 setup as an Access Point with my AT&T U-Verse 2WIRE Modem. [code] It just never seems to work correctly. It will connect for a second or 2 and then jam up. My ultimate scenario would be to have the E1200 just act as a wireless access point and have the 2WIRE do the rest: firewall, DCHP, etc.
My apartment already has internet provided to all of the rooms, but I'm trying to set up my router as a wireless access point. I tried disabling DHCP on the router, but then I wasn't able to get any internet access at all. Does this device not support bridge mode?
After updating the firmware of th EA6500 to Ver.184.108.40.206072 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 network with 2 WRT54Gs in it. One in the besement connects to my cable modem and serves as a gateway and DHCP server as well as a wireless access point. That WRT54G is perfectly accessible. I have another in my room set up as a router and access point only, connected by its ethernet port to the gateway. This one proves a bit trickier. Thet network works flawlessly, and if I couldn't see it sitting right there I would doubt it even existed. I can't ping it (I forgot the IP but tried all the ones that seemed logical), it doesn't show up in my network map, etc. From what I gather that's how a switch is supposed to work. But since this is also a managed router, I would think there should still be some way to connect to it to administer it. How can I log in to this router to change settings if I need to?
I'm not sure if maybe 192.168.2.0 is the other router or if that's some kind of special address (My network is on the 192.168.2.* subnet, don't even ask why...). I've seen it in other posts about routing tables but they all had it routing to 0.0.0.0 instead of the router's own IP. I tried pinging 192.168.2.255 and got no responses at all, not from any computers or from either of the routers, so that was not useful. Tracert from my computer to the gateway doesn't show the router (my computer connects to the gateway through the router).
At my work we have Comcast Business Class, and our LAN uses the Comcast's SMC static 10'net addressing. Our two POS computers are connected to wall ports that connect to the SMC router (unsure its model number, it's screwed to the wall). There is only 1 LAN port for each POS computer, I am trying to setup a 3rd computer up by the POS stations for dedicated web searching of products, emails between HQ and the other stores.
Like I said our LAN is using the 10'net addressing, and only a single port I can use. I would like to use the E1200 as a bridge/switch to connect: POS computer, network label printer. and network printer/copier/scanner/FAX .. and also have wifi available. The POS & printers need to have their static 10'net IPs .. but I want the wifi to use DHCP from the E1200.
I was successful in configuring a new e1200 in bridge mode to extend my network. I did this with the routers side by side. In then moved the e1200 to a new location 150 feet away and it will not work. I previously had this working with an older linksys router. It will not deliver a Internet connection.
I can not even get in to management mode. In next program that just keeps trying to auto repair the connection and never displays any radio button option the direction state like "advanced settings".At the very least your PDF should match your user friendly **bleep** ware!The instructions even refer to itself wrong! It states "for manual set up go use browser connection section" then in that section it describes an auto set up and instructs you to follow the set up steps on the CD.
I'm considering purchasing the "Cisco Linksys - E1200 Wireless-N Router with 4-Port Ethernet Switch". Before I do, however, I want to know how to configure it as a wireless bridge to my existing wireless network.I have a hardware device with only an ethernet connection (no wireless option avaialble). I want to connect the device to a wireless router / access point, in this case it would be the e1200, and then connect to my existing wireless network. The e1200 would be acting like a client of the existing network.I found this article but Step 8 is causing concern. I do not want a wired connection. The two routers must connect wirelessly.
I have a E4200 with 1.0.04 firmware that I've used for a while as a router in front of a cable modem. I have upgraded the modem to a Virgin Media SuperHub. I have connected my E4200's WAN port to one of the SuperHub's LAN ports and changed the E4200's mode to Bridged Mode.I can connect to the Internet wirelessly and wired on the SuperHub, but I can only connect to the Internet via the E4200 if I'm wired to it. The wireless will connect to the E4200, it gets allocated and IP address in the correct range and the gateway is shown as the SuperHub's IP address, and I can see the E4200's management website via wireless, but I cannot connect to anything beyond the E4200.
I bought the EA3500 nine months ago mainly for the USB port (for a NAS). I recently replaced Comcast Cable with Verizon FIOS. So I now have the FIOS router as my main router (its' IP address is 192.168.1.1). I put the EA3500 in bridge mode to extend the (wired) network. I could get: After going in to bridge mode (with DHCP), I can not log in to the EA3500 (IP address 192.168.1.5 assigned by the FIOS router). I connect my computer directly to one of the EA3500 numbered ports (after various combinations of rebooting EA3500 and rebooting PC). It just continues to say "waiting" and never logs in. Tried choosing a static route (tried both 192.168.1.43 and 192.168.1.5 with 255.255.255.0, gateway and DNS1 = 192.168.1.1) with no luck.Since I can't log in, I cannot set up my NAS on the USB port of the EA3500 (so I haven't gotten far enough to determine if the USB port will even work in bridge mode).Thought about ensuring the latest firmware but since I can't log in I can't do that. (And after a hard reset EA3500 IP address is 192.168.1.1 which creates conflict with FIOS)
As I understand, the latest FW for the E4200 makes it possible to put he router into bridge mode. In this mode, I can use it as an access point. In bridge mode, should I then connect my router to the WAN port at the E4200?The other way to make the E4200 into an AP, is to disable DHCP and NAT and give the E4200 an IP address out of range for the DHCP range in my preferred router.
Choosing between this two option to make the E4200 into an AP, which is considered to be the best solution?And to be sure; using this option, then the Ethernet cable should be connected to the LAN port of the E4200? is the performance of an E4200 in AP mode the same as a dedicated AP like the WAP610N?
Just bought 2 e4200's! I have the first one connected to the ATT router, and I have the second one connected to the first in Bridge Mode. It works great! It knew how to configure itself to be the down-level client.
However, I noticed that the port speed is only 100 Mbps on the port that is acting as the link for the bridge. I am running brand-new CAT5e thru the house, and if I connect the cable directly to my laptop - I get 1Gbps. So I know that the cable is good.
Is there a way to change the speed of the INET port on the down-level e4200?
I have just received my 2 new cheap wrt54g2 routers. I already have a router with dhcp in my network, so I just need this routers to connect wired net and wireless. Is there any way to use this routers as a bridge? Earlier I used asus router, with disabled dhcp and lan cable connected to one of lan ports. But this is not comfortable, because I need to put ip address to router statically
I have a Wireless Router supplied by my ISP that give me both 1G Lan and N Band Wireless, so I just need to use my 4200V1 as a Storage Access Point. I have done all the Bridge Mode configurations, IP Address ad Subnet / Default Gateway, etc to the routher and can see it on my Local LAN, by it's Set name.
I can not http or Https to the Config menu in any way, so I can not establish if a Disk is connected or not. The Disk device is USB Connected to the E4200 port, but I can not acceeass any of the files that are on it.
DGW - 192.168.1.1 E4200 - 192.168.1.200 Bridge Mode Wireless Disabled on both Bands DHCP Disabled
Everything appears fine, but not able to bring up Advance Configuration interface .
I have just purchased t-mobile's at home phone service (voip) and they gave me a UTA200-TM Hiport Adaptor to connect for the service. Had Vonage (voip) for 2 years so know how it works and never had problems. This one however will only allow the phone line to stay on for about 30 seconds and then drop it. Have it connected to a modem (cable internet) and a WRT54GS Wireless Router. T-Mobile wants me to check to see if the router has bridge mode set up as they think that may be causing the phone line to drop out. How can I check that? I can not figure out the directions on the linksys site, too confusing.
Restarting the e4200 did not work. Resetting using the switch at the back did not resolve the issue. I was able to reset it via the 192.168.1.1 web page. After restoring my settings from backup, the issue remained the same. This was not alleviated after I updated the firmware. Plugging into one of the ports with a cat5 cable with my Mac, I was able to get an IP, yet I was not able to surf; same case with my MacBook.
Doing the 30-30-30 reboot did not fix this issue and all the while the front white light on the router went and stayed, solid.To see if I could get this to do ANY sort of meaningful internetting (is that even a word?) I put the e4200 in bridge mode and when I put the cable modem in, and all that plugs into this router works. This, of course, means that there is:
I configured the EA4500 to work in bridge mode, to use it as an accespoint for an existing network (Linksys WRT610N). It gets an IP address (192.168.1.141), but does not offer a wireless network (the ethernet ports do offer network acces). When I try to access the configuration on IP address 192.168.1.141 I get the Linksys Smart Wifi page asking for the password. When I enter the password, a message "Waiting" appears and that's all. It keeps me waiting forever and I cannot access the configuration settings.I have tried to reset the router (30sec. reset button, power off 30sec, power on) but the result is the same.
I'm using the E4200 in Bridge mode and it's handing out IPs from our DHCP server (not acting as it's own). I have about 8 people connecting to this wirelessly to get to our network. For some reason it locked up once every week or two and I have to unplug it (can't even remote into it).
I have four E4200 units on my network, each with an unique IP address, in bridge mode to act as a wireless mesh across my entire building. They are all connected to my central L3 switch, via their Internet ports.
Is it possible to enable the Guest network on each unit, to create a 'Guest Wifi' mesh (providing that I allow the 192.168.33.0 network to route across my network fabric), or will this not work because each indivudual AP will be assigning IP address 192.168.33.1 as it's gateway address meaning that I would have four distinct MAC addresses within the network, each trying to claim that they are IP 192.168.33.1?
