Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Already Had Access Phrase In Computer?

Dec 19, 2012

I just bought this Cisco E2500 router last night. I was able to set new pass phrase and name (SSID). I then proceeded to add wireless computers to the router-no problem. had 1 computer I couldnt set up because the person was sleeping. So this morning I go to set up their computer, and found the name (SSID) on the available networks. I clicked on it, and it connected right away WITHOUT ASKING FOR THE PASSPHRASE!!!!! NO ONE put the pass phrase in this computer before. I checked the connection-and sure enough, there was the passphrase right there on this computer! So HOW did this computer, that I hadnt ever tried to connect to this new network before- suddenly get the passphrase as well? if anyone in this neighborhood can just connect to my network and automatically get the passphrase like that-then I need to take this back and get a refund!! That isnt secure at all!

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 / Slow Connection On 2nd Computer (notebook)?

Feb 24, 2013

I'm using an E2500 router and an EA2500 adapter (to update my desktop from 802.11 g connection to 802.11n). I've connected my notebook to the network and the connection speed for the notebook is approx. 5.5 Mbps compared to 21.5 Mbps for the desktop connection. why the notebook connection is so much slower?I've just reinstalled both the E2500 and EA2500 tonight. I'm not sure whether or not there was such a vast difference in speed between the two before the reinstallation.

I set up my daughter's Dell laptop last year to our WRT54G wireless router and I'm trying to connect to our wireless network now with another laptop (a new Dell) and can't find (or remember) my security code or pass phrase.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - Cannot Access It

Dec 27, 2011

I have bought and installed an E2500 router 4 days ago. Installation of router and network using Cisco Connect was easy and without problems. However, after 4 days of usage, not changing anything in the network nor running Cisco Connect or accessing the web interface, I tried to start Cisco Connect and got the message  "Cannot access your router".Internet is running, router is accessible via in a browser window, Cisco Connect also works fine on my laptop.The only solution I found on this forum is: reset your router and reinstall Cisco Connect.and then every 4 days resetting my router and reinstalling the software?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Will Not Allow Port 80 Access

Apr 21, 2012

I bought a new e2500 and it is working fine, all but port forwarding.  This is not even close to my first router and I am advanced when it comes to setting these up.  I have tried for days to get port 80 to open up and it refuses. Now I do notice that when you access the router setup through a web interface, it uses port 80.  I have forwarded port 80 to the ip address of the device, put in a reservation in DHCP with MAC address, etc. etc. and still nothing.  Heck, I have even turned that specific device IP into a DMZ, and it STILL will not work.For the record, I had an e2000 set up the exact same way and it worked just fine and I was able to access port 80.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 As Wifi Access Point Only?

May 17, 2011

I have an E2500 running as a router/DHCP server. For reasons beyond the scope of this question, I am replacing the router and DHCP functions with a SonicWALL device. I would like to continue to use the E2500 as a wireless access point only, providing WiFi connection to the SonicWALL. How do I set up the E2500 for this purpose. I assume I switch off the DHCP server and NAT within the device. Is there a dedicated "access point" mode?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Access Restrictions On Current E2500?

May 28, 2012

I have an old WRT54G and the access restrictions really don't work.  it's sloppy and ineffective.
i'm thinking about upgrading... perhaps to the E2500.  Do the access restrictions now work properly?  Am I able to allow access to a specific site only during certain times?
For instance, am I able to provide access to [URL] only during 6:00pm-9:00pm and block it otherwise?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using E2500 Wifi Access Point?

Dec 13, 2012

I have an existing home network with a D-link wireless router, IP  In the past, I set up another of the same model Dlink router as a WAP to extend my network by simply disabling DHCP and setting its IP to  Used the same SSID and passwords, worked flawlessly.  Now, my WAP-router has failed and I purchased a LINKSYS E2500 to replace it in that function. I'm trying to configure it the same way but am having problems.The Linksys' IP is by default. I hooked its LAN port to my laptop and accessed the setup page at  I changed the router IP to and disabled DHCP. I saved settings, the router reset, and since, I am unable to re-connect to that router setup screen at either OR the default  I reset the router to default and tried this multiple times but could never get back to the setup page (didn't even configure any wireless settings yet) after I made the IP change and disabled DHCP.  With my previous router, this worked easily and flawlessly.
1. What am I doing wrong (ok, other than using Dlink components)?

2. Should these two different brand components work ok together llike this or is that a problem?

3. Why should unticking DHCP and/or changing the IP address as described make the device unreachable?

How can I get software to access my router settings?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Guest Access On E2500 Not Working

Nov 1, 2011

I  did not use the CD to set up,  and instead set this router up manually. We are using this router right now as a hotspot only.. and all is good. I can see both new networks and the WIFI laptops are talking  no problem. Only  issue I have  is that guest access is not working - by that I mean it can't get out on the internet. I can see it as available and connect to it. Guest access and SSID broadcast are both enabled obviously.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using E2500 As Access Point From Another Wi-Fi Device?

Jul 24, 2012

Is it possible with the E2500 (or some other device) to rebroadcast a wireless signal?Here's the situation, I live on a boat, I want to connect my laptop to a local wireless signal (which I pay for). I then want to connect my E2500 to the laptop via the "Internet" port on the E2500. This doesn't work? This would allow all my wireless devices to stay connected to a single connection point. When I move the boat and change the wireless connection, I only have to do it once for a single connection. Is there some way to achieve this?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Effectively Use G2.4 G Access Point

May 1, 2012

I am running a wired and wireless home network..using a G 2.4 router and access point. I purchased an Linksys E2500 N 5Ghz wiresless router can I still effectively use my Linksys G 2.4 g access point? Will I still have to get a linksys N 5Ghz access point to properly obtain the most speed and security?

I use the wireless with a cable service and use wireless access only for the cell phones via WiFi.I rarely use the desktops on the home network, I want to increase the speed for the cell phone via Wi-fi, Currently speedtest results were 4.80 for downloads and 2.0 for uploads. I have not much use for uploading except for sending photos via wi-fi.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - No Internet Access For 2nd PC / Media Disconnected

Apr 16, 2013

I will be working from home half the time and am trying to get set up. So here it goes:
Took PC #1 home and hooked everything up. Could access Internet.Had to bring PC #2 home because #1 didn’t have the programs I needed.Hooked #2 up, no internet access.Tried different network cable – no access.Tried different router port – no access. (router port light doesn’t illuminate, neither does port on PC)My personal PC that uses the same router has internet access.Hooked #1 back up as a test – could access internet.Hooked up #2 again, did a Run, cmd, ipconfig and got “media disconnected”I brought #2 back in for a PC tech to look at. He hooked it up in his office, had internet access.Took it back home and hooked everything up.The port lights illuminated on startup; but after it got to the desktop, lights are off.Tried ipconfig again, "media disconnected”. IP address doesn’t display.
All the while I have internet access on my own PC, plus when I hook up #1 to the same port using the same cable, I have internet access, which led me to believe it's something wrong with PC #2.Tech is saying it’s a problem with my router (Cisco E2500), which I restarted too.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 As Access Point In Office Network?

May 2, 2012

I'd like to use an E2500 as a wireless access point in my network. My computer is connected to the office network through a Netgear 5 port desktop switch. Would it be easier for me to configure the E2500 from the switch? If so, do I just plug it in there and access it via the IP address to set it up? And lastly, what should disable (DHCP) or setup in the router so the internet functions through it?

Does the E2500 support multiple APs guest or it requires a special way to configure it?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 As An Additional Access Point Will Not Connect

Oct 16, 2012

I have AT&T Uverse which provides Internet for my home.  The wireless capability of this router is pretty bad, I don't get good/reliable wireless reception upstairs in my office.  The solution was to buy a Cisco E2500 and add it as an access point upstairs.
I have the E2500 LAN port connected to the LAN port of my uverse router downstairs.  DHCP is turned off on the E2500.  I have my office PC wired into the E2500.  The home PC works fine, its getting DHCP from the uverse router downstairs and connects and good speeds.  The problem comes with my wireless devices trying to connect to the E2500. 
I should mention that yesterday when i bought this, all worked fine.  This morning when I came into my office none of the wireless devices would connect to the E2500 at all.   But as soon as I remove the cable that connects the E2500 to the uverse router downstairs they will connect via wireless but of course not get an IP address since that is disabled.
I have factory reset the E2500 and uverse router several times and am getting no where. what could be causing the wireless devices to not connect at all?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Local Management For E2500 As Wifi Access Point

Jul 19, 2012

I am using an E2500 as an access point, which is working fine. I have an Ethernet cable on one of the LAN ports of the E2500 connected to a LAN port on my gateway router. The LAN address of the E2500 is and the LAN address of the gateway router is Clients on the E2500 wireless network have no problems getting to the Internet through the gateway router. Clients on the E2500 wireless network can reach the E2500 local management port at on port 80. On the gateway router I am forwarding WAN port 8083 to LAN address at port 80. But I cannot access the E2500 local management interface via the gateway router. The E2500 should see the request as from due to NAT in the gateway router, right? I can reach any of my actual access points this way, just not a router being used as an access point. Security/design limitation of the router?

I have updated firmware already. Otherwise the system works great. Never dies. Just when i set access restricions for a SPECIFIC time it kills entiore houese.

Linksys Wired Router :: E2500 - Cannot Remotely Access Zoneminder On Port 80

Jan 4, 2012

I have a Cisco Linksys E2500 modem and I cannot access Zoneminder which is essentially a Linux Security video DVR software package.  It is running on a Ubuntu Linux server. 
I have HTTP port 80 forwarded to the the static IP address of the Ubuntu server but I repeatedly get a error indicating that the connection timed out whenever I try to access Zoneminder remotely as in remotely accessing it from a coffee shop.
I have absolutely no problem accessing Zoneminder when I on my home local LAN.
I can access other software from remote locations on port 4369 with a TCP preferred protocol setting.  That is, port 4369 is forwarded to another Windows workstation with an assigned static IP address. Absolutely no problems with port forwarding of 4369.
Also,  I've tested port 80 on the YouGetSignal website which is used for testing port forwarding.  The website indicates that port 80 is closed.  But when I test port 4369, the website reports that the port is open.  Zoneminder which uses port 80 is fully operational when I test port 80 via YouGetsignal.
My ISP has told me that they do not block any ports including port 80.
