Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 - Connecting Wirelessly To Another One?
Feb 5, 2013
I have an internet dvd player that can only connect through a wired connection but my router (verizon wi-fi modem) is located in another room.I was wondering how I can wirelessly connect my old router (e2000) to the one in another room? Would I configure it as a access point?
I have an original Xbox 360 (wifi not built in) and the external wifi adapter. With all previous Cisco routers, I have been able to connect my Xbox successfully and quickly. Now, however, I am experiencing much difficulty.
I have verified I am using the latest firmware for my router, and configured my router like this: [URL] in terms of ports. I have also used the Xbox's MAC address to give a static IP address via my router's DNS.
The Xbox can see both my main wireless SSID and my guest SSID but cannot connect to either.
I have an E2000 (2 yrs old) that is not connecting to the internet.It is a slave to a BEFSR81 which controls the DNS.I am able to connect to other computers on my home network, so I know the wirelss is working and the cables are all good. I know that I can plug my laptop into the port on the hard wire router that the wireless was plugged into and I can get internet. So the only thing I can think of is the inernet is being blocked at the E2000.
I am currently at a friends house attempting to fix a situation he is having with his' wireless router, it is a Linksys WRT150n.Connection to the internet is possible via ethernet connectivity, however wireless is another story, devices can see the network but cannot connect to it, i have disabled the security key from the network to see if it was a simple password incorrection but still no dice.The current basic wireless settings have network mode set to mixed, and radio band, wide and standard channels set to auto, all other settings in the advanced tab are set to their default values.
I have just installed an E2000 router in an upstairs office. The signal strength is quite low downstairs so my question is: Can I use a wap54g as a repeater. If so, how do I get the MAC address of the E2000?. The E2000 has two bands and is currently running at 2.4. Would the range increase if I changed the setting to 5.
My WRT54G router locks up 100% of the time when attempting to connect connect wirelessly to a Samsung Blue Player (Model number BD-P3600). I can connect to it with a cable no problem, but when I attempt to do so wirelessly and type in the password on the Blue Ray player, it attempts to connect but the router locks up and all devices connected to it (wired or wirless) lose connectivity
I get a great wired connection but when I try for wireless the Samsung says I have a great connection, except when I try to use the Apps from the Blu Ray it tells me, No Internect Conncetion. Samusung support tells me I need to "open the ports" on my E3000 and make the Blu Ray a priority...I don't know how to do that.
Running Win XP (no service pack), WPA personal. Two other computers connect fine. On an old laptop running Win XP the network card sees the router, but when I enter the correct passcode (16 character) I get a message saying the code must be 13 characters. How can a connect this computer without disabling the other two wireless devices running through the router?
I have a BEFW11SF V4 firmware version 1.52.03. I just bought an HP DJ3051A and can't get it to connect. HP support says I need to change a setting to mixed mode but I don't see that I can. Does this router supports mixed mode and if so how do I change it?The other comment the HP rep made was the printer does not support Wireless N. I am fine with this since the router says Wireless B. It seems based on the HP rep's comment that as long as I am not using Wireless N, then I should be fine.
I just hooked up my new Sony BDV-E570 Blu-ray home theater in a box. Everything looks great except it is not connecting to my WRT110 wireless router. Router is one level below where the home theater system is located, and signal strength appears good (4 bars) on the Blu-ray player, but it repeatedly says "connection failed" when I try to connect. The Wii is also in the same place and has no problems connecting wirelessly to the WRT110 router.
I just installed WRT54GH and wireless was working fine, after almost 3 hours passed I lost connection with it.I tried to connect using wireless with 3 different notebooks without success. Just using cable it works.I upgraded firmware from v1.0.010 to v1.0.01 but still not working.
I have an HP Pavilion desktop computer running Windows XP Home Edition. It used to never get internet wirelessly for some reason until one day i played around with it. I don't remember how but I got it to go online and it worked ever since. Just recently i have moved from my previous home and have finished setting up both of our computers. The Vista (the one i am using to write this) is an Ethernet connection and is having no problem connecting to the internet. Although, the XP for some reason will not connect to the internet. The adapter will find the network but when i type in the WPA2 it tries to connect but i think it times out or something. I have tried several solutions and none have worked. My father has a Toshiba laptop and he is currently having no issue with connectiong wirelessly to the internet. Our old verizon router stopped working when we attempted to set it up after the move, so verizon came and istalled a new one. It is secured with a WPA2 code whereas our older one was secured with a WEP code. I think it might be a problem with either the router or the wireless adapter itself (which is a Linksys Wireless-B Network Adapter). Also, when i logged into my router manager thing, I noticed that under the network, it said the XP was an inactive Ethernet Connection and not Wireless.
Here are some of the XP's specs: Hewlett-Packard Pavilion Intel[R] Pentium[R] 4 CPU 3.40 GHz 0.99 Gb of Ram
I have a network at home that me, my brother, and my parents share. I will be building my own PC and placing it in my room, which is upstairs. However, our router and modem are both downstairs. Now, my questions is, will that be a problem? As in, will my network bandwidth be bad? I really can't reconfigure my network nor can I have my computer downstairs since there is not enough room downstairs to place it. I also have a computer desk in my room from a few years back. The modem we have is 2700HG-B Gateway and the router is a CISCO Linksys one. I just have a miniUSB Wireless N adapter.
I have a Linksys X5000 hooked up with my home pc. The internet I get is free though the private school's network I work at (across the street) through a LAN. With a bit of wrestling I got my desktop to connect with the internet through the Linksys like an ethernet switch.I can't get my wireless devices to connect with the internet without logging in as a guest, which is annoying to do every time, especially through my iPod. They will gain access to my network, but not the internet.
Since this is a school network, my IT guy gave me a static IP address to speed up up/downloads by disabling DHCP. Every time I try to do that I get a message that "the page at 192.168.1.1 says the value can't be equal." OK, so I try to change my router's IP to 192.168.1.2 and...no luck, same message. I love working with hardware, but networking is beyond me. I don't think I can log into the guest screen in my own house any more! I am getting a new tablet in 2 days and this just won't do.
I have a desktop computer connected to a modem and a wireless Belkin router. I bought a Belkin Surf&Share wireless USB adapter so that I could move the desktop elsewhere in the house and still connect to the internet. When I disconnect the computer from the router, the wireless light on the router turns red and I can't connect.
I just installed Tomato firmware (details below) on my wireless-N router and everything appears to be working fine on the router's end. I can connect to the Internet properly with a wired (Ethernet) connection; in fact, that's how I posted this question.
What I cannot do is connect to the router wirelessly in any way. At first, I thought that something was wrong with my wireless security settings, because I read about some incompatibilities between Windows 7 and AES encryption. However, when I changed to TKIP, the issue persisted; when I switched from WPA2 Personal to WEP, the issue persisted; and when I disabled wireless security entirely — just for testing purposes — the issue still persisted.
My Internet search for this issue brought up a lot of old forum and mailing list posts, most of which were useless. The only one that seemed promising suggested disabling Afterburner, but that came disabled by default on my install. I did try enabling it and then disabling it, but it had no apparent effect.
In case it's relevant: before I installed Tomato, I had a somewhat funky install of dd-wrt on the router. The first thing I did after installing Tomato was a full clean of the nvram through the web GUI's Administration → Configuration → Restore Default Configuration menu.
What do I have to do to get wireless running? I only have one computer available at the moment, but I'll try to update later if and when I can borrow more devices for testing.
Linksys WRT160N v3 Tomato Firmware v1.28.9054 MIPSR2-beta K26 Mini Linux kernel 18.104.22.168 and Broadcom Wireless Driver 22.214.171.124 updates
EDIT:This is a computer issue, not a router issue. Two smartphones with wi-fi connections and another computer are all able to connect to the wireless network with no problems. However, the original computer was able to connect to the same router just fine before Tomato was installed. It has an internal wireless-B/G card, and I had Tomato set up to broadcast G-only, so it should have been compatible.
EDIT 2:The computer in question was the only device in the house that wasn't set up for wireless-N, so I went out and bought a Wireless-N USB adapter and changed Tomato to be N-only. Using the new adapter, I get connection again. I suppose it's possible that the computer's OEM internal wireless card failed at exactly the same time that I installed Tomato on the router, but that would be one heck of a coincidence. I'll see if I can connect to some other G or B network next time I'm around one....

I have just bought and setup this router, Wired connection working fine, Problem is no devices seem to connect to wireless, my other PC, phone etc find the router with strong signal, I enter the key but nothing happens. I tried with my phone and stood next to the router and it connected but dropped out when I walked a few feet away.
I can connect to my router but either way it seems like i can't get any internet access (both wireless and by cable): url...I have tried the steps that the linksys FAQ suggests shall fix this problem, but this has not worked. I have also tried to reset the router without any luck. I know it its not the modem that is causing the problem because I'm wired to it now.On the E2000 every light is blinking as it should be (hence the FAQ) so it indicates that there might be a problem with the connection between the router and the computer (tested on other computers too without success).
I would like to set the router's dns entries but I don't see how to do that. Basic setup page has DNS setep for the DHCP scope but I don't want to push dns to my pc's. What I am looking to do is to use an alternate dns to what my service provder pushes and still have the abliity to route on my internal network.
My internet cut out last week and after calling my ISP I found out it was in fact my router that was causing the problem (regular connection to PPOE works fine). I've only had my E2000 about 2-3 months and have not had any problems with it. I've restarted the router, done a factory reset, upgraded the firmware, renewed the IP and still I cannot get any connectivity. I can access the router UI fine and I get a response from pinging it and also I have tried replacing the cables but that didn't fix the problem either.
I have an E2000 that I was given as a gift. I would like to use at it my office for a switch at my cubicle where I can connect 2-3 computers simultaneously. I am in a large network and am a user only. When I hooked the E2000 up today my computers would not get internet access BUT my laptop got wireless access and internet.
I'm using E2000 currently and meet a wireless connection problem. The speed can up to 300M bps. When I confiured the E2000 to band auto (20-40mhz) and my wireless network card to work at also auto (20-40) mode, it always down to 144M speed when connection.
If I changed some settings in E2000's wireless configuration, in the status sheet I can see it works at 40MHZ. But after a while,(5-10 mins) it automaticly down to 20MHZ and my labtop connect only got a 144M speed.
how can I deal with that to make it always keep at 300M connection? Note the previous router I used to connect to my lattop can always keep that speed.
I have a E2000 router that would go out and I would have to unplug and replug in every once in a while. Finally it just stopped working completely. I reset the router and now it won't let me connect. I have followed advice given to soembody else on here and went into router settings and cloned the mac, the IP address was there and reset my security settings. It let me connect to the network but not the internet...
It worked fine until one day, without any change at all, it simply stoped working. I mean, I can still connect through my wifi laptop connection (it shows connected to my router and says that I have an excelent signal). But, I can't reach the internet. But, If I unplug the internet cable, and plug it in my laptop, the connection works fine. A friend told me that this could be caused intentionally by the internet provider, that they would block my signal to avoid me using a wireless router, trying to force consumers to sign their own wireless service. Thus, by this friend advice, I've cloned my laptop's MAC address to the router. It didn't work either.
I have a Cisco E2000. When i connect to my cable modem directly, I get 30-35 MBps down and about 10 up. When I plug in to my E2000 it does that at first... but slowly over time, the speed degrades, usually down to about 5-6 down and 3-4 up. If I unplug the router, it typically restores full speed, but not for long (a few days maybe). Also, when I unplug the router, it is pretty hot.
For Xbox 360? currently, whether wired or wireless, my Xbox 360's NAT type is strict, and I am unable to do anything online whatsoever. Is there anyways to set up an exception, or anything that can open my Xbox's connection to my router so I can actually use it online?
I have an E2000 router that has an intermittent issue where Bonjour drops out. Suddenly my Apple TV won't see my computers, and my iPad won't see my network printer. This happens whether the Apple TV and computers are connected via wired or wireless interfaces.
Restarting the devices does not solve the issue.
Restarting the router solves the issue (until it happens again...)
