Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 PPPoE And IPv6 Not Working Fine
Feb 7, 2013
Have a v2 E1200. Connect with PPPoE to ISP. IPv4 works fine. With firmware included on router, 2.0.01, it would receive a /64 of IPv6 from the ISP. This /64 would show up under 'status' / 'local network'. Although it did not seem to advertise this space to PC's on my network so I was unable to use it. I updated firmware to 2.0.04. Now it does not even pick up the IPv6 /64 at all.
Anyone have PPPoE and IPv6 working? Anywhere I can download 2.0.01 to try it again?
Is there a model of router that actually works with IPv6?
My newly installed E1200 only sends speeds of about 16 mbps wireless, but sends the ful 60 mpbs when wired. What is going on. Firmware is up to date. Changing the channels didn't do anything. Is there a way to figure out if the problem is with my laptops wireless card.
I recently buyed a Linksys EA6500 wireless router. I accessed [URL] to access the settings interface of the router. Went to "Connectivity Internet Settings" and chose type of the internet connection as PPPoE. Entered the username and password, clicked ok.
I have e1200 v1 with last firmware 1.0.03. Device using as AP/switch (no WAN port installed). When I open the TV chanal (18.104.22.168) the pictures 1 sec good and then stoped, device not responding. When TV off, 3 sec later internet works and device up.
I set up port forwarding on my router. When I go to canyouseeme.org and put in my public IP address (I can ping the IP address with no issues) and the port that I'm forwarding it says it can't hit the port.
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?
Right now I have my computer (iMac early 2012 summer purchase) plugged directly into the wall via ethernet cable for internet access. I have only begun doing this in the past week because my E1200 wireless router has stopped working properly. I have reinstalled and reset to factory settings and set up with Cisco Connect and setup manually over the past week troubleshooting every possible way I have ever known how. My internet, obviously, is working. And when I set up the wireless network it connects properly and obtains an IP address and the lights on the back of the unit light up correspondingly and correct. But I cannot connect to the internet via the router, wirelessly or plugged directly into it. Yet when I take the internet cable and plug it straight into my computer it works.Mainly just need to know if this can be fixed or if I need to go return this unit and get a replacement. The router was purchased two months ago and has not had any issues since I first set it up until a couple of weeks ago and my phone is using up all of my cellular data plan without being connected to my wi-fi...
The Network icon in the notification area in the bottom right hand corner of my screen will almost always look like this:Quite frequently, though, I will get an exclamation mark inside a triangle with a message instead saying No internet access (I don't have a screenshot). If I give it a few seconds, usually never more than a minute (30 seconds on average it seems), it corrects itself and gives me back internet access.
We have FIOS at our home. All the wall connections for ethernet are wired to the control panel in our house which are then connected to a wired router. We have another wireless router in the upstairs which gets internet through the wall port and it works fine.We had another downstairs wireless router in the living room that was working fine as well, but I reset it for certain reasons and it no longer works properly. All the proper lights light up: internet, port, power but the computer can only connect to the network and not the internet for some reason.
Ethernet stop working, but the wireless is fine, check in the device manger for any conflics none. open the network sharing centre and ran the truoble shooting utiiity and message came up with ethernet cable not plug in or brocken, which i have change it for a new one so its not the cable and its not the routor because B.T just gave me the new B.T Hub3, this network adaptor is on board and i have a wireless card in the PCI slot and the is a new main board which i built, everything was fine afew months ago til this started to acur
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.
Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off
So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed
Nothing seems to be able to connect to my wireless network. It seems to have occurred after I installed a new copy of windows 7 onto my sister's desktop. A message appeared saying we have the same ip address. I've tried renewing our ip address on both desktop but it won't give us new ip address for some reason.

I have just bought this new device, installed, DSL is working fine but not the USB printer sharing. Allways tells me: "This system was not supported yet." Here is the message box: usb_printer_error.JPG.I have a HP DeskJet 1050 and a Canon Pixma MP150 machine. I know, the HP is not in the supported printer list, indeed Canon is.
Daughter is at college with brand new Vostro 3450. Was working on school network during summer but drops the connection multiple times during the day. She runs the Troubleshooting which then allows her to connect and 30 minutes later the connection is dropped again. The laptop works fine when connected to the internet via the ethernet cable. Here is what has been done by the IT support at the school.
1 - Deleted the Intel wireless utility as they thought it was "fighting" with the Windows software for control over the wireless.
2 - Increased the power for the wireless card to "high performance".
3 - Reinstalled Windows 7 to eliminate that there is a software issue.
4 - Replaced the Intel Wireless Card with new part sent by Dell.
Now the IT supports recommendation is to "get a new system" and that perhaps the Vostro's wireless card is "not compatible with their network". For Dell computers they sell the Latitude to the students.
My daugther likes the Vostro. She doesn't want to give it up. Wants the system to work. She had the laptop during the summer session and had problems with connection. The Windows software was reinstalled thinking there was a virus (although no evidence of one) and then she had no connection problems for the whole summer. She came home for 2 weeks and returned back to school and then the system would not work again.
I don't know what to do. Can I buy a USB wireless adapter for her to temporarily use until I can figure out how to fix this problem. Personally, I think there is a design flaw with the vostro.
Recently installed a new CISCO DPC3825 and set up for wireless. I can connect to the network, signal strength excellent, but NO Internet. i have read a few threads showing similar issues, but i am getting lost when i try to troubleshoot further. i ran a command 'ipconfig/all' and got some data. I am confused also as under my network adapter it says 'media disconnected' .
i've connected LAN-to-LAN an E1200 to WRT54G to improve wireless coverage in the basement and, more importantly, in the can. the set up seems to work. i also have an airport express joined to the network. (the slaved router's ip is one more than the master and DHCP is off.)i'm still curious about some details of the setup for the slaved router:
-- should it have the same SSID and the master? -- on the master router, i have WPA2 Personal and a MAC filter of allowed devices. do i need to duplicate those settings on the slave? will it obey the MAC filter and WPA2? -- do all the routers need to be on the same channel? -- do all the routers routers need to use the same broadband? the E1200 has N band i'd like to use with the G, if that's possible. -- if all the routers are on the same channel and SSID, will their signals interfere with each other if they're too close?
Recently added a NookColor to my toys. Works fine except at home. The device shakes hands with the router but won't connect. Nook connects seamlessly with every other network I've tried. Had my Bro-in-law over with his Anfroid based mobile devices and they won't connect either. We currently are running 4 boxes (2 @ desktop and laptop) off this router with no problems.As near as I can figure the latest firmware update (2007) can't handle the Android OS protocol and while they recognize each other they won't speak or play nice.Any options y'all know of short of replacing the router with a shiny new one ?
I had the router working fine then last night for some reason it dropped 2-3 (all of them currently on) internet, while online.I can connect wireless just fine to the router but get no internet, when i plugged into the router directly i still go internet, but when i connect the modem directly into the laptop i get internet so it is not the modem. I have tried to reboot the router and modem to no avail.i can access the routers page wirelessly and change stuff but just don't get any internet and the signal strength is excellent.
I installed a Linksys WRT54G2 router earlier this year and set my Siemens modem from AT&T(Actually from SBC before the two merged) in bridge mode. I did this so I could change the NAT setting on our internet, which was interfering with my Xbox. It worked for about 4 or 5 months with little to no problems. Recently, however, the internet has been disconnecting and when I check the status page on the router it says it is disconnected. Sometimes clicking on the connect button will work, but usually it will say "Connecting" and keep refreshing the page for a little while without any change, then give me a message saying it couldn't get the IP from the PPPoe server. Turning it and the Siemens modem on and off and fiddling around seems to solve the problem, but only temporarily. Interestingly enough, I don't think it ever interferes with my Xbox. Until recently, the Xbox was set as the highest priority on the QoS page, but I changed the computer to the highest priority and it hasn't worked. In addition, the small, thin green light bar just below the Linksys logo on the top of the router has just recently started changing to orange occasionally
I've been using my EA4500 since it's original launch date as a PPPoE router through another router/modem which is the Netgear DG834G V4 set to Modem Only mode which was working fine for a long time!A month ago, a friend wanted to borrow the Netgear Router and after he gave it back I reset it like I always do and entered my settings in router mode(i.e. username and password) to check if I havewe working Internet connection and that the router is working properly and it was working properly like it was before I lent it. Now comes the problem, if I keep using the Netgear router as the PPPoE handler and make the EA4500 work as "Automatic Configuration DHCP" it works flawlessly but if I set the Netgear router to modem mode and make the EA4500 handle the PPPoE connection, the report in the troubleshooting tab keeps on saying "Connecting" endlessly!
Note: I've replicatedthe settings that I used on both router before and after lending it to my friend so there's no difference in settings!
I have a Linksys WRT310N V1.I am trying to connect this via PPPoE to another Thompson router/modem that has been succesfully switched into BRIDGE mode.The Linksys router is conneted via ethernet cable to an ehternet port on the Thompson router.The ADSL cable is pluggedinto the WAN port of the Thomson 'bridge'.There is no cable in the WAN port of the Linksys router.
The Linksys router is set up to connect over PPPoE using the username and password that was given to me by my ISPs tech support (checked and double checked).The DHCP server on the Bridged Thomson is set to ON. DNS is set to OFF.the DHCP server on the Linksys router is set to ON.
I recently bought an E3000. I am trying to setup a wireless home network.Google and tried a lotta things (power cycle the most no. of times ). Nothing worked.So I poked around. Looked up the IPConfig of my PC with wire connected directly(no router), was 192.168.0.xxx. So I hit 192.168.0.1 in my browser address bar, and it came up with the login page for a D-Link DIR600. A wireless router with wireless disabled. Apparently this is being used as a switch by my ISP. This I know cause I checked the active connections and DHCP reservations on the D link and it showed up about 100 different PC's (including MAC and IP addresses).
There are 2 XBox's in the house and 1 is downstairs wired into the WRT320N Router. The upstairs XBox is running wirelessly through the router. Each of the XBox's work fine playing Modern Warfare 3, when only one is playing, but if both of us are playing, the wired connection works great, while the wireless connection is really slow and laggy. Again, the wireless XBox runs fine as long as the wired XBox isn't also playing MW3.
I was assigned a static block over PPPoE from the ISP. I can connect to the internet using the gateway address but I need to route the other static IPs to my servers. I might say that I accomplished it on a couple of older routers - E1200 & WRT120N, but I cannot get it to work on my new EA3500. I have 5 usable IPs plus the gateway IP that is assigned with the PPPoE connection on the WAN port.
I have a WRT54GS wireless router. I can successfully set up the router with my DSL modem for PPPoE. Here's my problem. The router configuration requires you to put in the userID and password, then logs you in to your ISP automatically. I DON'T want it to do that. Is there any way to configure for PPPoE where ISP login is controlled manually; i.e., when the user tries to connect to a web page, a dialog pops up for entering the password?
I have been working on this for hours and getting frustrated! This router has been set up for over a year with no trouble, but recently had trouble connecting with my wireless devices and was kicking my wired (ethernet) laptop off when it is usually on all the time.
Now, my wired connection works through the router, the wireless devices all connect to the network but do not have access to theinternet. From the router's setup page, when I enter my PPPoE information and go to status and connect, it tries to connect a few times then gives me the error message 'cannot get IP address from PPPoE server"
I have tried updating firmware, resetting, restarting, recycling power, chat support with ISP and chat support with Linksys. Have verified my username and key and those are correct otherwise I'd have no internet access at all. I do have wired access but not wireless. The wired connection does go through the router.
Bridging - my modem is a bridging modem only, so it shouldn't be that.
When the ethernet cable is plugged directly into my laptop i can input my user name and password and connect directly without a problem. But as soon as i plug the cable into the router, the activity lights turn off like its not plugged in on the other end...which it is. So when going through the setup process, both using the cd and inputting the information on the web based setup. It does nothing, the automatic setup says the cable isnt plugged in. When using the browser setup i can click connect as many times as i want and it does nothing but say disconnected.
I am using wrt54gx4. I have a IP camera connected to it. I can view the live images on the intranet and internet. Not too long ago my DSL company upgraded my DSL modem to a newer model. Then I can not connect to the internet by PPPoe. DHCP is fine. So the only connection type works is DHCP. But now I can not view the live images on the internet. I can only view the live images on intranet( I mean if I open web browser and type url.. is the port, I can view the live image).
I have a Cisco/Linksys E2500 router that I have had for over a year and it has worked without issues for over a year. However my wireless ISP just switched my CPE from A Mikrotik wireless radio to a Ubiquiti wireless radio. As soon as they did this my PPPOE sessions from the E2500 (acting as my PPPOE client) start disconnecting and reconnecting every few minutes causing major problems with my internet and voip connectivity when it looses connectivity every few minutes.
The strange things is if I connect my much older WRT54G router as a PPPOE client (with the same exact PPPOE configuration), it works just fine and I don't have any PPPOE disconnects.
I upgraded to the latest firmware on my E2500 and nothing changed, it still disconnects my PPPOE sessions probably close to 50 or 100 times an hour.
I'm thinking it's some sort of compatibility issue between the Ubiquiti Nanobridge Radio CPE and the E2500 router acting as my PPPOE client. Also another thought was that perhaps my ethernet port wasn't negotiating speed/duplex correctly on the E2500.
Is there any way to hard code the speed/duplex on an E2500? I can't seem to find any spot with that setting.
