Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Frequent Loss Of Connection

Feb 3, 2013

Having several issues w my E1200. For quite some time I have had intermittent loss of internet connection. This was somewhat true even before I got a wifi router. & it has continued. Recently it has been even worse & I'm not sure if it is my isp, my cable modem or the router. ISP came out & checked & said signals looked ok, although modem is old.Now i find out that the version of Cisco Connect that i had been using is incompatible w Mountain Lion so it won't work now. & newly downloaded dmg files say they are damaged (or that app has been modified or damaged--I'm not in a position to tell which but same results after I downloaded a 2nd time).
I have been having more frequent loss of internet connection at home. & when I click on the wifi icon to check, it shows it looking for networks. Also it has not been uncommon to see that it has switched to my guest network.Why would it switch to my guest network? What is the difference between the 2 besides the fact that I guess the guest network doesn't have access to everything on my regular network (which right now is only my iPhone, but may get wireless printer).Also when it shows the lists of networks that it "sees" my guest network does not show a padlock icon so what does that mean? It does have the default password.
Also because I had no idea that Cisco Connect was not compatible w Mountain Lion I didn't even think to check for upgrades before I upgraded to Mountain Lion & now I can't open Cisco Connect. Shows unsupoprted OS. & I'm also stalled trying to update the firmware for the router.I'm really beginning to see why it was cheaper than an Apple Airport Express. Even at a very low hourly rate, the lost time spent when this has not been working right has not been worth what I saved on the purchase price.


Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Packet Loss / Lost Connection To Server Error

May 28, 2012

I have an E1200 and am time out and packet loss issues. The internet connection is fine for 30 seconds to five minuets and then everything times out for 15-20 seconds. Although it’s only a minor incontinence to web browsing, it makes playing games and watching videos a nightmare. “Lost connection to server error.” and the like…

I upgraded to a new router, the e1200 I am currently using, from my Tenda 10/100 N. The problems where the same that I am experience currently and the reason I bought it in the firs place.When I directly connect to the cable modem, I have no issues and everything is fine.I have run a trace route and the second hop, (the router to the modem) is the choke point.I have cloned the MAC address.I have updated the firmware and hard reset
I have throttled my MTU to automatic, 1500, and 1472. None making any difference.I have disabled NAT and all that does is kill my internet connection.I have disabled all firewalls router and windows, no change.I replaced the physical wire from the router to the modem.I have disconnected all devices except one computer, and no difference.I ran a DNS trace and I have… non routable local internet address and am using windows 7 and my ISP is time Warner so-cal.

Frequent Loss Of Network Connection?

Nov 22, 2011

I keep losing connections to the internet and getting a couple of different messages that the Gateway IP address is invalid. There are times it happens every few minutes and other times I can go for a couple of days without it. Also, we have to have satellite internet which has such an inconsistent speed. Is it the internet speed inconsistency or the 4 year old Belkin N Router?OK, so I tried to copy the information from the CMD window, but I can't get it to work. After I got the information and right clicked and clicked "select all" then what. I couldn't copy it. I can't find my way back to the instructions.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Connection From Outside To E1200?

May 1, 2013

I purchased E1200 and have a problem. I  have static external IP but router configured to get IP automatically (reservation from ISP). When some one at home using internet I can commetc to the router using remote management. But when everybody out and no internet users at home I cannot connect to the router. I checked with other router from linksys (old one WAG45G or something like this) and it was the same. But it works great whith TP-Link routers.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3500 No Connection Loss But Wifi Stops Working?

Mar 9, 2013

I've tried all sorts of settings, and I'm still holding out that its a setting possibly, but I have a E3500 and devices on both 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz... Most of them, probably when idle, seem to stop working over WIfi. They still have decent connection, but every internet related request just times out. Disable and reinable the wifi and it works great again. 
Could this be defective wifi radios? or could it really be interference? I have it happening on multiple devices. Also, I'm not far away from the router when it occurs, and when I reconnect, it seems to work just fine for a while. Basically the big problem is on the cell phones and tablets because I'll miss notifications... I'll turn off the wifi and turn it back on when I use the device next, then a flood of notifications will come in. Again, it's not just a phone thing, tablets and laptops have the same problem, that's just the main reason I want it fixed.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Internet Connection Keeps Going In And Out

Oct 14, 2011

I had recently purchased the E1200 router. For some reason, my internet keeps going in and out of service. I will be playing an online game but get disconnected from the server every 6-8 seconds. I tested if it could be my internet provider, but when I connect via Ethernet cord to my modem, it works great. If I run the Ethernet through my router or try wireless connections, it tends to go in and out. It only seems to do this some of the times.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cisco E1200 - No Internet Connection?

Dec 11, 2011

We've moved apartments in the same building that provides LAN internet.  But in the new apartment the internet is working fine when I plug it in the computer directly, but when I plug it in the router (E1200) it says there's no Internet connection.  No WIRED internet and No WIRELESS Internet.  I don't get it.  The same router I took it back to our original apartment and works fine when I hook up the same ethernet cable to the LAN.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Wired LAN Connection On E1200

Feb 15, 2013

I have an E1200 acting soley as an AP.  Everything works just fine, but when I try to copy files from one wired computer(both Windows 7) to another one on the same router(the E1200 in this case), the network utilization is only about 4%.  If I take one of the computers off its wired connection and make it wireless, the utilization goes up to about 50%.  Also if I take one of the compuyters off this router, and make a wired connection to my main router(which is connected via a wired connection to the E1200), the network utilization goes up to 50%.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 And Nintendo 3DS Internet Connection?

Jul 31, 2012

I recently was able to obtain my son's Nintendo 3DS from him and now I can't figure out how to get on the internet browser with it!When I open up the internet on his 3DS and when I try to access anything it says communication error even though I have a full signal.  It also says that the "error code is: 012-1018 Connection to proxy server failed. Please check that your proxy server settings are correct." I have went in and tried to change the proxy server settings and if I do I lose the internet connection despite the fact that the correct information is set in place.   I even tried to reset the router (as my son did before) but I can't access it, even though he was able to!! I have done research on the Nintendo web site and everything that it says to do I have done and it shows that I have a full signal but after that no luck.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Internet Connection Over Wifi On E1200?

Apr 15, 2012

I recently purchased an E1200 to replace a broken router. I have had good experiences with this model in the past which is why I bought it. However this has not been so pleasant. For some reason the internet connection over wifi is INCREDIBLY slow. I don't know why. It is fast when connected via ethernet to the router. I changed the MTU on the router to 1400, I set the wireless width to 20MHz and the channel to 11. I set security to WPA2. And yet it is still very very slow.  It's not a matter of how many users are on the network; I live in a house with five other people and it's slow regardless of whether everybody's home or nobody is home. It's like this on Macs, PCs, phones and even the Xbox 360. I just did a speed test. Wired was about 14MBps down, wireless was around .7MBps down. I simply cannot comprehend this discrepancy. The old router was very unreliable in terms of connectivity but at least it was always fast. And my laptop is fast at my mom's house where she has an E1200. I use a MacBook Pro from 2009 but like I said,this seems to be affecting everybody in the house regardless of hardware.The modem is a Ubee modem from Comcast. I'd upgrade it to a SURFBoard but my landlord controls all the utilities and I'd rather not have to explain to him how to call Comcast and tell them to register the modem's serial number to the account or whatever.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GH Frequent Disconnection With DSL Modem

Jul 9, 2011

I purchased WRT54GH wireless router back in 2009 and it was working fine except for past 1 month, wherein the Internet Connection was being disrupted 15 - 20 times in an hour. I thought it could be fault from ISP end; however after investigation by ISP we found the fault was not from ISP as, when Wireless was unable to establish connection with the DSL Modem it was failing but when tried to connect laptop with the DSL Modem it worked fine (Wired connection). I did try the Settings mentioned in an earlier post to change the UPnP and the Beacon Interval etc. This however doesnot seem to work as the internet has been disconnected almost thrice since then. (Approx. 15 - 20 mins). When the router is unable to connect to internet I restart the Wireless Router and the DSL Modem. After restarting, the Internet connectivity works fine.
Below are the Advanced Wireless Settings from Wireless Tab:
Authentication Type: Auto Shared (Default: Auto)
Basic Rate: Default (Default: Default)
Transmission Rate Auto (Default: Auto)
CTS Protection Mode: Disabled Auto (Default: Auto)
Beacon Interval: (Default: 100 Msec, Range: 20 ~ 1000)
DTIM Interval: (Default: 1, Range: 1 ~ 255)
Fragmentation Threshold: (Default: 2346, Range: 256 ~ 2346)
RTS Threshold: (Default: 2347, Range: 0 ~ 2347)

Linksys Wireless Router :: Frequent PPPOE Disconnects On E2500?

Dec 13, 2012

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Needs Frequent Hard Reset?

Aug 20, 2012

I have an EA-4500. Unfortunately I often have to hard-reset it:
- every time I update the firmware (last time I updated to via Cisco Connect Cloud)
- sometimes whenever there is a black-out
The first time it happened upon the automic firmware update which released Connect Cloud. In such cases, the router stays with the white Cisco logo on and no other lights work (i.e. the ethernet lights on the rear side of the router are off). The only reset procedure working is: unplug Internet cable, press reset for 30 secs, turn off while keeping reset pressed, wait 30 more seconds, turn on again always keeping the reset pressed.
I've tried to turn off for 2 minutes but it doesn't work. The strange thing is that the above reset procedure does not always work, sometimes I have to do it like 10 times before the router Cisco logo light starts blinking on and off (like breathing).
Besides this, which is very very annoying, I'm satisfied with router functionalities and performance.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 V2 Packet Loss?

Jan 18, 2012

I seem to be having packet loss with the E4200V2 which is upgraded to the latest firmware as of today, 1/18/12
The application is accessing a security DVR which uses a RTSP / RTP stream.  Of course this requires certian ports to be forwarded in order for this to work.  This works flawlessly with a WRT310N or a Cisco 871 Router so I know the port forwarding is correct.
With the E4200V2 it works intermittently, I can replace EV4200V2 with either the Cisco 871 or the WRT310N and there are no issues.

well, i just bought an E4200 and, by the way, was very hard to configurate. But the real problem is: if there is a power loss, both modem and e4200 lights up, but no internet connection is provided.Even the SSID desappear. I trried to disconnected everything, reconnect by parts, but no success.I wired  connect the E4200 to my iMac and the router was ok, configurated.Then, i reconnect to the modem and all worked ok.Now im testing possibilities and is i reboot the router, the net desappear and i have to try possibilities till it works.

My older router connected automatically, without a problem, but i decide to buy "the best" brand and its top product". Now im disappointed..
Twice i realize that if the connections drops out, i have to disconnect and reconnect the internet cable from my E4200...

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Occasional Loss Of Communication

All of a sudden I started experiencing occasional loss of communication with my router. I tried updating the firmware to the latest (1.0.04) but am still experiencing the same thing.I don't lose internet access, I lose connection to the router itself. If I power cycle the router, the connection is re-established and I'm able to access the router and in turn the internet. I'm seeing this on both wired and wireless connections. Last night the Cisco logo actually turned off when I lost connection (this was a first). When I power cycled, connection was restored and the logo lit up again.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 Packet Loss (cabled)?

Mar 9, 2011

A while ago I bought a WRT320N as a trade-in offer, unfortunately I had around 20% packet loss on my connection after I set it up. If running directly through my cable modem I had no connection issues at all.I was running the whole setup cabled, and have no peripherals using the wireless connection.The router was returned to the retailer for RMA, and in the end I got the purchase credited.My setup ISP: Dansk Kabel TV (danish provider for internet, TV etc.)Modem: Netgear CVD31T  DOCSIS 3.0 compliant Cablemodem (I do not have access to the modem, as it is provided by the ISP. I have now bought an E2000, and set it up in the same manner as the previous router.This has returned the same problems I had with my previous router.Updating the firmware didn't make any difference.Using as my test reference I get results like this.when connected directly to the modem I get 0% packet loss, max 20ms ping and jitter is 2-3ms.Have I been so unlucky to get 2 faulty routers in  a row, or could there be some problems with Linksys routers and Netgear?I have unsuccessfully tried switching cables without any change, tried moving the router "far" away from the modem, monitors etc to see if there could be any interference from the wireless.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt110 Loss Of Wired Network When Powered On?

Nov 9, 2011

My wrt110 firmware .05 has been working fine until now. I have a couple of phones, 2 printers, 3 laptops and a wii happily connecting to it. However now when I power on the wireless device, nothing can connect wirelessly. Wired connection is fine, but my wireless network disappears. No device can find the network, although it is there and set up on the admin pages. I pull the power chord out for 30 seconds and try again to get it going again, a bit like trying to start a car. Everntually devices find the network.
On two occasions it has forgotten the wireless settings and restored an open 'linksys' network. It's really infuriating becuase whilst I restore the SSID and use the same key, not all the devices actually recognise it and have to be reconfigured on the devices.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wipes Attached HDD On Power Loss

Dec 18, 2011

I'm loosing about 40GB of data. If worst comes to worst i might go with another brand of router instead as i don't wanna waste a lot of money again as i currently feel i have with the E4200. Enough whining, here is my problem. The FTP and Media Server feature works nicely. I have a 2TB USB 2.0 HDD attached to the router's USB port. I use it for images and my music collection ripped there so i can play it all from my PS3 and TV. I also have many GB of video recordings and converted DVD discs for easier access. (And no, before anyone speaks of piracy, it IS legal, at least in my country, to back up your legit media) Now, everything worked fine, until one day after a few weeks, the router hanged for some reason so i decided to reboot it. To my disappointment it also wiped video and audio from my HDD which really got me pissed as i lost all track of what i had on the HDD. The Media Server was also having connection issues once in a while so i decided to update the firmware from 1.0.00 to 1.0.03. It immediately fixed the connection issues of the Media Server. Another noticeable change is that files transferred via FTP will show immediately via the Media Server without the need to update the database via the router as i needed to do in 1.0.00. Now today there was a power loss in the neighbourhood so the router went dead along with the HDD. To my big disappointment, everything was gone from the HDD when i started it up again. Images, music, video and even my application backups etc. It was just plain empty except for the root folders. I have done a few tests and figured that even if the HDD stays on, cutting the power to the router will wipe the connected HDD. What's up with that? Even a silly Windows PC wont nuke your files that much if an accessed HDD was disconnected while in use. Do i really need a UPS system for the router and safely disconnect the HDD from the router via the user interface every day? If so, the concept of having a router with these nice features is really useless and money theft in my opinion.
