Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Cuts PPTP Bandwidth?

Oct 5, 2012

I've got a problem with my new Linksys E1200 (v1) router. It cuts the bandwidth of my PPTP connection with ISP (which is 50 Mbps) down to about 12 Mpbs. My firmware is the latest one (v1.0.03 build 4). I've done some reading and found out that it's pretty common problem between Linksys E-Series routers and ISPs that use PPTP/L2TP.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Cuts Bandwidth

Mar 1, 2012

Telefonica router (this my internet provider) --> WRT12N --wireless/eth--> my laptop
With that configuration I get a 1Mbps band with But in this configuration Telefonica router (this my internet provider) -- wireless/eth--> my lapto I get 7Mbps.Using always the same port of my telefonica router.Why the WRT120N is not providing the whole bandwidth? Is there any option in the router that divide the whole bandwith (7Mbps, almost 8Mbps) among the four ports of the wrt120n (giving 1Mbps per port)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Cuts Bandwidth By Nearly Half

Dec 16, 2011

I just signed up for Charter's Ultra 100Mbps internet service.  We confirmed it worked at that speed by connecting my Lenovo T520 laptop directly to the Motorola Cable modem.  I acheived just over 102Mbps throughput down.Next, I plugged in the e4200 (v1) router to the modem, and the computer directly to that (wired), and the max performance I could see was right around 52Mbps.  Wireless performance on wireless-n, 5Ghz, maxes out at around 42Mbps.I am concerned about the throughput dropping from 102Mbps to 52Mbps while directly WIRED to the router.  That tells me that the router is definitely capping my throughput. I have turned off QOS, found the optimum MTU of 1468 (used the ping -f -l 1440 [url]...) to find the largest MTU that didn't spit out a fragmented message, and added 28 to that.
I am a bit baffled that this top of the line router which some have claimed to see >100Mbps performance over wireless alone, isn't able to achieve any higher than 52Mbps wired. I do have other devices plugged in, but none actively transferring. What could be capping the throughput?  The router worked fine on 25Mbps service, but it seems unable to handle 100Mbps service.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V3 Cuts In And Out

May 1, 2010

I have a wrt160n v3. This is the 3rd one - both the first 2 were defective. I have spent approximately 8 hours troubleshooting the other 2 only to be told they're defective. So, I got a new one. Now, this one keeps cutting in and out. I want as my iPhone constantly switches from 3G to wifi on and over every minute. It really ticks me off! What can I do to fix this? This is a different issue than the original one (very slow) and 2nd (no signal). It's disappointing for a $90 router to do this. I also see the wireless icon on the router flash.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Valetplus M20 Cuts Speed Near In Half

Feb 7, 2013

I did a test to check the speed of my connection with my PS3.  First I checked the speed straight from my internet providers modem and I get 18.9 Mbps.  Then checked it through the Valetplus router and the speed results are 8.5 Mbps.  Both tests were wired in with same cable. Why this happens and if that is common with wifi routers?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cordless Phone Cuts Out Wifi On E2500?

Sep 20, 2011

I have a cordless phone which broadcasts on 2.4ghz - when the phone is being used it cuts out the wifi. I thought that with the E2500 being a dual band - I wouldn't have this issue as I thought the router would switch to the 5 Ghz frequency if there was interference on the lower band. Maybe I am not understanding how the dual band works.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200v2 PPTP Server Not Responding

Jan 17, 2013

I setup my Windows 8 desktop for a PPTP VPN server so I can connect my iPhone 5 to it.Using the Cisco Connect Firmware, as I was having internet speed issues with the Smart Wi-Fi Firmware and I wasn't loving the interface of the Smart Wifi Firmware anyway.According to the router the firmware is up to date. All three VPN settings are enabled.PC is set to a static IP internally. to be precise.PPTP port forwarding (1723) is set to the PC's static IP, though I have tried without port forwarding and it didn't work either.If I have my iPhone connected to the wireless network and point it to the internal IP address of the PC, I can connect to the VPN.If I bypass my router and hook my desktop directly to the modem (and point my iPhone to the IP that gets assigned to my desktop from my ISP) I can connect to the VPN.But if I have everything hooked up normally and try to connect to the VPN from my iPhone (using the IP address my ISP assigned to the router), I get a PPTP server not responding error.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160NL Unable To Use Remote Management Over PPTP IP

Nov 20, 2011

My University has free Internet at student homes, but we need to login by PPTP to get an official, public IPv4 and be able to reach the outside world. The network people at the University says that when the PPTP is up, everything should be open (no firewall of any kind).
have my WRT160NL that gets a address from DHCP on WAN port. Currently I have My internal network uses PPTP-server is located at and when I connect, I usually get an IP in the Currently I have I use DynDNS to make sure I always know the public IP by the host ...
So, I have Remote management enabled with HTTP and HTTPS, any IP and default port 8080. But no response from the outside world seems to go through.If I turn of the "filter ICMP" but keep the SPI Firewall on, I get ping reply from external sources towards my router, but still no HTTP or HTTPS response.I also have a Torrent I try to port forward to to be active, this is 23277, and this is the only thing that keeps coming up in the incoming log on my router.
It's not possible to connect to the routers management over the PPTP-tunnel?And why can't I get the port forward to work .. Same reason? PPTP -> (LAN) won't work?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Allowing PPTP Traffic To Server Behind WRT320n?

Mar 7, 2012

I am trying to allow PPTP traffic through my Linksys WRT320n to a PPTP VPN server on my home network.The Linksys WRT320n is running firmware 1.0.05 build 002Mar 31, 2011.I have created a Port Forwarding rule on the Linksys to allow TCP & UDP port 1723 through to my internal IP of the PPTP VPN server,but everytime I try to connect with a PPTP client from outside of my network I get a connection error on the client.Checking the PPTP VPN servers logs I see the following errors (Please note all IP's have been masked) Mar 2 11:15:07 ap-01 pptpd[5300]: CTRL: Client x.x.x.x control connection startedMar 2 11:15:07 ap-01 pptpd[5300]: CTRL: Starting call (launching pppd, opening GRE)Mar 2 11:15:07 ap-01 pppd[5301]: pppd 2.4.4 started by root, uid 0Mar 2 11:15:37 ap-01 pppd[5301]: Exit.Mar 2 11:15:37 ap-01 pptpd[5300]: GRE: read(fd=8,buffer=41fe30,len=8196) from PTY failed: status = -1 error = Input/output error, usually caused by unexpected termination of pppd, check option syntax and pppd logsMar 2 11:15:37 ap-01 pptpd[5300]: CTRL: PTY read or GRE write failed (pty,gre)=(8,9)Mar 2 11:15:37 ap-01 pptpd[5300]: CTRL: Reaping child PPP[5301]Mar 2 11:15:37 ap-01 pptpd[5300]: CTRL: Client x.x.x.x control connection finished
From looking at the above errors, it seems as if the Linksys isn't forwarding GRE through to my PPTP server.I have tried various settings, including enabling and disabling the PPTP Passthrough option on the Linksysbut still can't get PPTP to work.What is the correct way to get GRE traffic forwarded through the Linksys?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't See Where To Set A User Name On E1200

Dec 29, 2011

I can't see where to set a user name on my E1200. I set a password for the web interface then it boots me out and I am promted for the password and username.I don't want to download and configure my router with some poorly written software for my mac;  why can't I just do it all through the good old web interface???? I'm able to set everything else up fine but when i set the password I am basically rendering the web interface usless and have to reset the router!! (running Lion, latest build with 8gigs of ram and N wirless adaptor in lappy) 
Ok, so I was given this router for free so I shouldn't complain but I do not see any speed increase over my 6 year old 54G rinning wrt, perhaps I need summin better than this $50 walmart special Getting about 10mps download which is also the theoretical max of G right)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 - How To Connect With PC

Dec 26, 2012

I replaced my broken modem with a new Motorola 3360 as recommended by my ISP.  The new modem works fine connected directly to my PC.  When connecting the modem to the Cisco E1200 router, the same one I had with the older modem, the E1200 says I'm not connected to the PC.  I've triple checked the wired connections from the modem to the router and then to the PC.  I've swapped out cables and verified that they all work when used directly from the modem to the PC.  I'm thinking some settings from the old Westell modem are messing with the connectivity of the new E1200 router.

Linksys Wireless-n E1200 New Router Setup Failure

Jan 19, 2012

I have been attempting to set up a linksys wireless-n e1200 router on my hp p6-2007c (Windows 7 SP1, 64-bit) desktop pc for the last day and have exhausted everything i can think of. The previous router was a linksys WRT54G and it worked fine. However, upon setting up this new router i get a "no internet access" message accompanied by the little yellow triangle and the ability to still connect to my router via its ip address to alter its configuration. The connection status for the network and the internet is identical for all the laptops in my house. I originally attempted setting up the router using Cisco's setup program. At its conclusion, the setup program informs me that i am connected to the router, but my internet connection has been lost (even though it was never there) I have tried starting over from scratch by resetting the router back to its default settings and using a variety of different channels (Auto, 1, 6, and 11), frequencies, etc. I have uninstalled norton antivirus, disarmed the windows security programs, made sure of TCP/IP settings, rolled back, uninstalled, and finally updated firmware, uninstalled/reinstalled driver for wireless card, disabled/enabled the card itself, deleted all other previous network profiles still present in the "Manage Wireless Networks" screen, and probably some other suggestions i came across in this forum. They all failed with the same results, i.e. the ability to connect to the network locally and having no internet access.
