Kindle fire won't connect to my router WRT320N- I have the correct password- signal strength is excellent- I have set up other devices without problems- prompt reads "connection error unable to connect to access point. Please check the password you have provided."
I have kindle fire that is unable to connect to the wireless network.All otehr devices windows phone, xbox and laptop are able to connect seamlessly.Amazon also sent me a replacement, but the issue is still the same. The error is:
"Unable to connect to the selected access point, Please check the password you provided."
Also, I removed the security on the network to see if its able to connect without password.The state where it fails is Obtaining IP address and it fails again.
My mom wants to buy my dad a Kindle Fire for Christmas. Currently they have a desktop computer with a modem plugged into it and use Verizon dsl for their internet. The Kindle needs wi-fi and I don't want to disrupt the way their computer is set up now.Do I simply plug the router into the modem to get the wi-fi signal?
I cannot connect my Kindle Fire to my Wi-fi router.It works when I'm out and about ie it connects to the internet but never when at home. I have also tried connecting via a static IP but that also fails. When attempting to connect my Kindle Fire if I have another device already connected eg my LT or DT they also become disconnected
My DIR-655 has worked well for 3 months; both Ethernet and wireless. Yesterday I accidentally deleted this WiFi router from my Kindle Fire list of WiFi connections. Now, when I try to re-establish Kindle wireless logon, the router will not accept the previously used password.As a non-techno-geek, I tried to find this in the DIR-655 manual. But it is written in Greek and not oriented to the wireless user. [code]
I am trying to get my parents Kindle Fire to work. They recently purchased a Motorola Modem/Router which is hooked into the desktop and works fine. I want to get their new kindle to work and can not seem to figure it out. Their operating system is Vista which I can upgrade to Windows 7 if that would make it easier. When I click on setup the WiFi part of the installation wizard cd that came with the Motorola it says there is not a network adapter. I know what that is however I do not know why I would need it when the desktop is hooked directly into modem/router and I just need the WiFi for Kindle.
My objective is to use the USB port on the E1550 to share an external hard drive for my family's shared media files.I have moved into a rental home with little cat5 wiring. Internet service is Uverse.Given the wiring situation, I bought a netgear universal dual band range extender which connects wirelessly to the uverse router in another room. My home office equipment (computer, printer) are wired into the netgear. All of that works fine. The netgear is 192.168.1.66. The computer is 192.168.1.128. So, I wanted to add the E1550 into my network. I can see it as an attached device on the Netgear's admin page, but cisco connect and a direct ip http://192.168.1.68 does not resolve. I have the e1550 connected via a lan port on the netgear extender (there is no other option). I have gone from that lan port to the internet port on the e1550. I have done so with a staight Cat5 cable and with what I believe should be a cross-over. In both situations, I see the router via the netgear admin page but can not connect to it. I'd prefer not the hang my usb drive off of my computer because it if gets turned off or reboots due to a MS Windows auto update, it leaves the rest of the house with no shared media during that process.
I recently purchased a E1550 that works fine until I tried adding an external USB HDD for storage. The drive is a Western Digital 500MB drive I used to use for backups. Had no issues setting up the share and was able to access it just fine. But a few hours after hooking it up, my wireless devices could no longer connect and I could not access the admin page to see what was wrong. The E1550 was still pingable and my wired devices could still access sites through the router. Cycling power to the router did not work. What did get things working again was removing the USB drive (which killed all wired connections as well) and then cycling power. The E1550 was fine after that.
I just acquired a Kindle Fire for my wife. Joined my Dir-655 network just fine. I have never done a firmware update (using 1.10) and have lived by the "if it ain't broke. " axiom. Dell laptops, Mac laptops and desktops, Wii, X-box, LG Cinema TV, Roku, iPad, multiple iPhones and iPods all connect and work fine (with the occasional (once a month) reboot of the router necessary). Using cable modem (bridge mode), no historic issues. Suddenly when the Kindle Fire is utilizing the network at the same time as one or two other devices, the network crashes, and a power down reboot is necessary. A Google search reveals a fair number of complaints about this across router brands.
I've read the various threads on here and tried all the fixes suggested and I still cannot get my PS3 to "see" the USB drive I've attached to my router.I can see it and access the files from a connected computer, but not the PS3.I've tried creating a share with one directory and sharing the entire partition with no luck. I've enabled all the FTP options with no luck. UPNP is enabled. I've tried setting up the guest account with no luck.I've tried restarting, unplugging with no luck either. I also went into the USB drive and reformatted and started all over again.My PS3 can easily see the other computers on the network, but I would like to use the USB port on the router to not have to have a computer running to stream music.Is there another menu location on the PS3 I should be using to locate the USB? Currently I just look under music or video and the other computers are there. Just not the USB.
I have a Linksys E1550. I would like to extend its range by using an old Netgear N600 I have laying around. I know the Netgear can be used as a repeater. I do not know what settings I need to change in my Linksys router to be able to use a repeater.
I replaced a WRT54G2 V1 with a E1550 earlier this week. This router connects a sub-net of our office to the main network of our office. When the WRT54 was in place everything worked without a hitch, but the E1550 keeps dropping us from a server we have on the main network. The WRT54 is back in play until I can figure this out.
I have a E1550 with a corrupt config that is acting very wonky lately (shows wrong info in some of the settings and doesn't always save changes). Since it may be the config that is at issue, I don't want to do a backup/resote, rather I plan to do a full factory reset and manully type everything back in.What would be nice is, creating a text based, human readable printout of the config for reference so that I don't have to manually type it all twice (once to save it, once for reentry). PS3 ports, MAC filters, etc. have several entries, and they way the pages are designed it doesn't allow for easy, whole entry, cut and paste.
how to access an E1550 wireless router's settings and configure it to connect to my wireless DSL router? The DSL phone line is not located anywhere near my TV/DVR/Roku and I'd like to connect them wirelessly to our DSL router. The E1550 is next to the TV/DVR/Roku.
I have a Linksys E1550 Wireless Router that is fast as can be on the wired connection, getting 30mbs from the cable modem connection. If I switch to using wireless on the same PC, the max connection speed I'll get is 2mbs. I've changed all sorts of settings trying to get this working right, and it still stays at 2mbs.As an additional note, this router was previously working fine at 30mbs on wireless as well, then out of nowhere this weekend, it started running at 2mbs. I went and purchased another of the same model and it is doing the same thing as well.
What is the secret to having this run at it's correct speed, not this slow 2mbs that it is now? I have configured this the same as every other Linksys router I've had in the past, and it is running horribly slow..I'm on the newest firmware as well, have already verified that. The old router was updated to newest firmware as testing to resolve this, and the new router came with it installed already.
I tried to connect to my E1550 router admin page at 192.168.1.1 and I'm not seeing the login page. I'm getting an error. I've always been able to get to the admin page. I'm not sure what changed. I tried changing the IP# and subnet mask of my laptop and I still can't connect. I tried resetting the router to factory defaults.
I'm sure this has been asked a 1000 times but don't see my router.I have a WRT31on I lost the software in a fire (saved the router) never used parental control but now all the grand kids are asseccing with ipads, pods etc.can't use parental on each item. need to do it at the router
I have an E1550 less than 1 year old. Lately, I have been losing internet on the AT&T modem. I called AT&T but as part of their diagnostics, I have to plug the modem directly into the PC. I have loaded the latest firmware to the E1550.Lose Internet but wireless connectivity to router exists.Internet light on modem is out (modem is connected to router)Unplug modem and leave off plug in, internet light is still out.Unplug router, plug router back in - no internet connection but do have wireless connectivity to router.Take cable from modem to router and plug directly into PC internet light comes on in modem and I have internet from PC.Take cable from PC and plug back into router .I have internet via wireless.What I can't figure out is what could be happening in router that would impact modem internet connection. I have replicated this at least 3 times. Yes, the modem is a bit old, but since plugging it directly into the PC works, I'm thinking it has to be the router and I cannot figure out why unless there's some sort of electrical thing going on in the router.
I had previously posted about problems with the E1550 not being able to recognize NTFS formated hard drives. After multiple retries and reformats I was finally able to get it to work and was able to backup my system files to that NTFS hard drive.
Now, little more than a week later I setup to run my backup to run again and once again the E1550 is not accessing the hard drive. The same one it had previously acknowledged and allowed me to save to.
The E1550 sees that there is a hard drive out there but all it says is "Detecting..." this does not change.
I need this to be fixed and stay fixed. If it is going to do this every time I turn on the drive to do weekly backups, then I need to get a different wireless router.
I installed a Linksys E1550 wireless router at home and I moved an external storage drive from the old computer (soon to be gone) to the router via the USB port in the router.
I can see the drive and files on the router on both the old computer and the new laptop, but I can't do anything with them. When I look at permissions for any given file it says: "Everyone" has read and execute only. "root" has Full Control, but I can't gain access to the "root" userid. I have gone through the router setup and folder/file properties using the "admin" userid and the router acknowledges that it is there, but it won't allow me to add permissions for the "admin" with "Full Control" to any of the items.
It won't even allow me to add new files, even though I have setup sharing for the entire partition.
I may be replacing my e1550 soon and am looking at both the N750 and N900 class devices. While the EA3500/4500 seem to be a really good deal with a lot of bang for buck, I do have one concern...
As I have zero intention of ever using Cisco Cloud Connect, I would need to stick with the Classic firmware. While Cisco did quickly push out a solution to get the routers back to Classic after the initial Cloud Connect deployment fiasco, I cannot seem to find any commitment from Cisco to continue to support the classic interface (other than "“Cisco will continue to support both local and cloud management options for our customers.”). Even more disconcerting is that the current evidence seems to indicate that they are not. [code]
So, while I do understand that many of the updates have been Cloud Connect specific, some of these changes are in fact global/driver updates. As an example, according to the release notes, on June 25, 2012 the EA3500 CCC firmware v.1.1.38 (Build 138143) updated the WiFi driver, apparently the Classic never received this update.
