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.
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 192.168.1.1 DNS-cac-lb-01.rr.com and DNS-cac-lb-02.rr.com.I am using windows 7 and my ISP is time Warner so-cal.
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.
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.
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.
I have been spending days !!! trying to resolve why my laptop pc disconnects frequently from its wireless connection. No discernable pattern to disconnects, totally random. Happens in cycles of disconnect/auto reconnect or will go hours of stable operation. What I have noticed is tht the connection speed seems to vary, from a hig of 54.0 Mbps to as low as 2.0 Nbps. At same time the desktop pc (hard wired to modem) stays connected at 100 Mbps.Using RCA modem, WRT160n v3 router.
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.
I have E1200 router and I have a problem with setup my ISP Connection. The ISP requires PPPOE connection but with static IP Address but in E1200 I didn't find any option for that. The possible ways are PPPOE or Static IP Address.
I come back to you as I have a linksys e1200 router connected to a modem Zyxel P600 Series exact and every 24 hours it gives me no or limited connection. Change the IP of the router as it was the same as the modem and subcred mask, why these cuts will be as it is router problem because the modem only works perfect.
why I am having a slow connection? Before purchasing Linksys E1200 wireless router, my internet speed was perfectly normal with Netgear wireless router. Everything ran smoothly but once I installed Linksys, it began to have slow connection. It also has drop connection sometimes. How do I fix my connection speed and the drop connection?
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.
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%.
I just installed a new e1200 router last night and my ethernet connection is really slow. I've been reading where people's wireless is really slow, but mine is the opposite. I'm getting around .5 mbps download wired, but around 25 mbps download when its connected wirelessly. Is there anything i can do make the ethernet faster or is the router faulty?
since last nite my router E1200 has been having speed up and down problems.first it goes to 150mb/s then back down to 1 for a few minutes, usualy its stuck at 72mb/s which is a far cry from its rated 300mbps but qi'd rahter have that than 1-2mbps.i'd be happy with 150mbps but that only lasts 5mins then goes down to 1-2mbps and i have to reset my connection.
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.
Product: Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54G Version: 6 Firmware: Has Been Updated
I am directly connected to my router. Lately, I have been receiving high latency spikes and total loss of internet. The problem must be related to my router, because when I connect to the internet through my modem I don't have this problem.
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.
I am trying to setup my Internet connection on my linksys E1200 router using static IP settings below -I am getting following error when trying to do this. These are the IP settings provided to me and are configured on my laptop to connect to my ISP as well.
I just set up my new e1200 wireless router. The wireless connection works great but on my desktop (which is plugged in through the ethernet), has a painfully slow connection. Half the time it times out while loading a website!
I currently have a Linksys E1200 router and I am getting anywhere from .3-.5 of a megabit per second download speed while upload speed ranges from 2-5 Mbps. This is very strange to me as I have never seen a connection this slow or one that had a higher upload speed than download speed.
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:
New E4200v2 router, latest 2.0.26 firmware. Reboots on its own <or> locks up and requires power recycle 3-4 times a day. More frequent if I attach a USB drive to USB port. Reset to factory, only using as a router (no USB drive, no printer sharing, no TimeMachine backups, etc.)Still locks up or reboots 3-4 times a day. I need a reliable router that does not reboot so often.
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.
I have an EA-4500. Unfortunately I often have to hard-reset it:
- every time I update the firmware (last time I updated to 126.96.36.199827 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.
I am getting frequent stop pages in streamed video, a message appears on my laptop saying "loading" and a red line beginning traversing the screen. Eventually the line gets across and the video begins again to stream. When I do a speed test I get around 10 Mbps both through the router wireless and hardwired connections. This happens almost every 10 minutes. I have tried rebooting the router and the problem persists
Recently acquired a Dell Inspiron 6000. I had the hard drive clean off and Windows XP reinstalled. I have no problem connecting to the internet when I power up if I go through "repair connection". I have to do nearly every time I power on. How do I get it to stop? My other Inspiron had no problems connecting.
Lately I encountered random Internet connection issues?My router is a Netgear Wireless ADSL Firewall Modem Router DG834 (Firmware V1.05.0) and my ISP, isn't the most reliable regarding bandwidth... All clients (max 3 at the same time) connect wireless.The problem is that the last few weeks my connections is very unstable, all clients lose the internet connection until you restart the router manually.I can't even connect to the webinterface (192.168.0.1), during the downtimes.
I am running 5508 controller with version 7.0 and 1142N access points.. I am facing a problem on user connectivity. Wireless Users are getting frequent connection and disconnection. These users are not getting connected to the access point nearby although this access point is up and running. I have tried reducing the power level, configured the AP after resetting it.
I had to change from a WRT300N wireless router which died to a new E2500. I noticed that the speed my computers report that they are connected to the wireless network connection is now 144.5 mps, versus 270 mps with the WRT300N. There is no change in location of the devices or computers. The computers use a WUSB300N adapter. Is there a setting or setup that needs to be changed?
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.
