Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 DHCP Client List Not Showing
Aug 25, 2011
I have purchased E2500 and i am having following problems:
1. DHCP client list not showing - only shows when i reboot the router. After some time, the list never shows even when i press refresh button
2. I can only reserve IP when i reboot the router - after some time i cannot do this action also
I have upgraded to latest firmware and also peformed reset as directed by support.
I just started having this problem yesterday. I was experiencing weird downloading/internet browsing issues and couldn't figure out what the problem was. I started looking around my router settings and noticed that in my DHCP Client list, my computer isn't in it. The router is hooked up to the computer, so it's not wireless. My phone and my girlfriend's laptop are listed, but the main computer isn't. It's especially causing problems with port forwarding. Downloads will stop because the port isn't showing as open. I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 and a Belkin N+ Wireless Router, model F5D8235-4.Firmware is up to date.
I have a Wireless N router model F5D8236-4 v2 (01) with firmware 2.00.04 (Nov 12 2008 10:51:08) and it's not showing all issued wireless or Wired IP addresses in DHCP Client List.
They all have IP addresses and connect to the internet through the router, but in the router administration page, they're not listing. The Windows devices all show but most of the Mac devices are not, nor is my XBox 360.
My reason for investigating this is because the router seems to keep losing the Mac devices and a router reboot fixes it, but it shouldn't have this problem because all the Windows devices just seem to work.
According to the support page I have the latest available (dated November 12, 2008 which really seems kinda old to me for a Wireless N router). Are there any plans for a new firmware offering for this modem or have you already deprecated it as "legacy equipment"?
I just purchased an E4200 router. I have four clients on my network and they are all set up for DHCP. I renewed their IPs and they all are connected. "Cisco Connect" reports that I have four clients connected. When I access the router and bring up the DHCP Client Table, there are no entries. There should be four entries. Aftern I enable the logging function, none of the logs have any data in them even after I wait for 45 minutes and use the internet and renew IPs. I am using Firmware Version: 1.0.03. I have the same results for both Chrome and Firefox. I want to be able to set Static IPs but I am hampered by the not having any clients in the DHCP client table.
I upgraded to firmware version 1.0.03 I started to have this weird issue: I have four PCs connected to this wireless router via wireless G. They all run Windows 7 Home Premium. After a few hours I started to notice that the DHCP client table is empty even if all four PCs are connected to the internet. This causes a networking problem because one of the PC serves as a file server and it grants access by IP addresses. Not being able to "see" those computers, my access is denied.
Do the problem caused by the modems itself or it just sign of faulty Ethernet switch (using 20 port Allied Telesis ethernet switch). Sometimes I cannot connect to internet due to "unidentified network" buy i can resolve this problem by restarting my modem + switch.
I keep getting some additional IP addresses logging onto my home network that have an address outside what should be allowed by the router. The server is running at 192.168.2.1 and is set to only allow clients from 192.168.2.2 - 192.168.2.10 so a total of 9 clients should be allowed on.The problem is that something keeps logging in with an address of 192.168.169.2 or 3 etc. Sometimes more than one device at a time.I have assumed that it is some automated or virtual client as I'm pretty certain my network has not been breached. I have a 9 character password with a relatively random alphanumeric combination, although I haven't tried changing the password (I live in a share house with with a bunch of devices using wireless, so I haven't yet bothered). What I don't understand is how it has connected with the xx.xx.169.xx range at all. I have a Belkin 'Share' Wireless N Modem Router and at some stage there was a 'guest' network but that has since been disabled and I still am seeing the extra address. I have attached a screen shot of the DHCP client list on the router.The following is a list of devices that may be on the network at times, I'm thinking one of these may be responsible for the problem:
Windows Vista Desktop - Only LAN device PS3 Macbook Epson wireless printer Android HTC Desire Mobile Phone Laptops running various Windows versions (XP, Vista and 7)
A few thoughts I had:
- the android phone is capable of running a wireless hotspot, may have to look into it to see if if has been operating as an access point into the Belkin router, but assumed this wouldn't bring up clients connected to the phone on the home router.
- The desktop has PS3 Media server installed to stream video to the PS3 over the network (not that I have ever managed to get it to work), however this is not ever open on the desktop.
I have an EA4500 and am using Cisco Connect Cloud software. Its working mostly fine except that I have one device on the network that will not show up in the device list. This is not an issue in itself and normally I would ignore (although it used to show up when I forst got the router) however..
The device is a WDTVLive media unit and required access to windows shares on a media server. Now the WDTVLive device is server an ip address by the router and is available from everywhere on my network but every couple of days it loses the capacity to search windows shares.
I know what you are thinking and I initially thought the same, this is an issue with the WDTVLive box. However one day I spent a few hours trying to resolve (Am an IT Consultant and know a little about networks) and found that I could not fix the issue. I then rebooted the router and it started working. I have since confirmed that every time it breaks I have to reboot the router.
Why is my WRT54g router only showing the 1st LED port is lit, and not the rest when I have changed or added a device to the 2nd,3rd,4th port? It is also stopping my ability to stream,view youtube etc. When I disconnect the router from my cable provided modem, everything works fine?
Region : France Model : TD-W8968 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : TD-W8968_V1_120926 ISP : SFR Device in question: siemans C610 IP voip phone Configuration:
* The C610 is directly connected to TD W8968 via the ethernet port number 3 >> ethernet port number 1 is connected to the devolo homeplug 200AVPLUS . The PC is at the other end of the homeplug network
* The DHCP address starts at 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.199.
1. It takes a long time (about 2-3 minutes) for the C610IP to obtain the IP address of 192.168.1.100 after the synchronisation of the ADSL line is finished 2. In the DHCP client list, I could only see the IP address of the PC (192.168.1.101) but not the C610 IP. However, if I type 192.168.1.100, I could access to the configuration page of the C610 IP. - I only managed to see the C610IP once in the DHCP client list.
I tried to unplug -> replug the router but to no avail.

So I've been checking my router DHCP list and I usually use the WPS feature to add devices. I know how many devices I have and which ones are wireless etc. I've made address reservations on all the devices that I have and know of. One feature that really frustrates me (which is missing) is no way to rename a device. My iPhone is named: Reggie's iPhone yet the 4300 picks it up as Unknown... I dont understand why. I've renamed it on the iPhone to different things and restarted it but still it comes up as that. I have 2 Nexus 7s and both come up with wierd names, one is for my wife and one is for me and I wish there was a way to name it proper.
Question is: Will the name edit feature ever get added to it? I dont get why it's not there now, it's not really something major (I have a 5 year old router that even has that... and it cant even support N). It's really frustrating to have to guess and check the devices on my network because most of them come up as unknowns.
Right now I'm trying to located another device that's coming up as unknown and now matter how much I try, since the router lacks any feature to assist finding it, it's really frustrating.
something else i noticed: my DHCP List shows all the devices connected with their IP addresses, yet I went into CMD and was doing a random ping command. I'm able to ping 192.168.0.114 with perfect stats back yet on my DHCP List it shows the highest IP is at 192.168.0.112.... Is something wrong here? Is it supposed to not pick up the IPs it gives out? And of course since there isnt a way to tell if that IP is for a WIFI or ethernet device, I have no idea what that device is...
yet i found another ip address on my network by using the ping command. actually I went ahead and did arp -a to find out all the ips with mac addresses. this is a serious flaw with the security of this router!!
I have used wireless routers in the past...but have just purchased a Cisco E2500. When attempting to set it up using the CD I am asked to assign name + password.....I do this and but the ?? is unable to find the router. This despite the fact that it is 8 ft. away and showing up with 5 bars on my networks available display. When I attempt to connect without going thru the setup it asks me for the password which is part of the setup process..
I picked up an E1200 and set it up successfully. I am using wireless MAC filtering, and decided to pull up the list of connected wireless clients (Wireless >> Wireless MAC Filter >> push "Wireless Client List" button).Immediately after this the Web UI of the E1200 becomes inaccessible. It still routes traffic, and the router remains pingable, but it will not allow access to the Web UI for several minutes. The error that appears upon attempt to access the Web UI during this time window is similar to the above, but reads "Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection."
I have tried this in Google Chrome, Firefox 4, and MSIE on two separate computers. Each browser displays the error a bit differently (MSIE, for example, just says it can't display the page and gives no further detail) but the net results are always the same. I have tried resetting the device to factory defaults in addition to re-downloading the firmware from the Cisco/Linksys website and installing it. No improvement.
I have also noted that the Log (Administration >> Log; and yes, I have it enabled) doesn't appear to be picking up anything at all. In fact, the Security log, which supposedly (according to the Help) "displays the login information for the Router’s browser-based utility," is also blank.
I could get a list of clients on the E3200 wireless (or wired) ports. I have my E3200 setup as a WAP LAN-LAN off a switch and it is not the DHCP server on the network. I can see a list of MACs on the client list, but no client names and no IP addresses. They are definitely named and show up on the WRT54GL (DHCP and NAT) as devices
I have the WRT160N router for 3.5 yrs and it's worked perfectly since installing it. About two weeks ago it began intermittently dropping cable connection. First few times I thought I could resolve it by unplugging/plugging router & modem so they can "re-syn" to the cable connection. That still works but now it occurs sometimes multiple times within a few minutes/hours and then won't happen again for an entire day/days. The other day I had connectivity but instead of the usual 5 bars I only had 3 while using my laptop in the same spot in the house as usual.
We are using a domain and Windows Server 2008 machine with DNS/DHCP setup and active to handle traffic on the network. The old router we had was a cheap (~$20) TrendNet that was configured (not by me) without issue to not only allow the server to handle IP's but also allow us to get in to the server remotely via Remote Desktop. My cut sheet says they had a "virtual server" setup.
Anyways, we now are running an E2500 and if I put in the external IP, Subnet, Gateway, and DNS for our internet provider and then disable DHCP on the router, we don't get internet access. I'm missing what configuration I need to get the server to handle all the traffic I guess. The server has DHCP enabled with the router IP address (192.168.1.1) set and the server address is (192.168.1.2). Like I said before it was working fine with our old router and none of the settings on the server have been changed so must be something with the new router.
Do I need to setup something in the advanced routing to get this working? Currently I have DHCP on automatic and DHCP server enabled just so we can get internet access. DHCP services on the server are still on as well. Can't get any access to the server from the outside via Remote Desktop like we could before.
I've got an E4200v1 running 1.0.04 firmware with guest access enabled. I'd like to find out who is logged in using the guest access. Is there a way to get a list of the DHCP clients on the guest network? I'm able to do this for the non-guest access via the WEB interface's Status->Local Network->DHCP Clients Table page. But I can't find a similar table for the guest network.
When I'm in Setup -> Basic Setup -> click on DHCP Reservation, I don't see all entries I've created earlier but computers that connect still have the correct IP address on the network; I don't know if I can create additional entries if nothing appears
When I go to Status -> Local Network -> DHCP Client Table the list is blank but some computers are connected to the networkI'm using firmware 1.0.01 build 10 Feb 21, 2011, language = English, Firefox 4.0.1.Rebooting the router doesn't change anything, I can't see connected LAN equipment and DHCP Reservation is empty despite the fact I've created entries.Together with the "Access Restriction" which doesn't allow to block a computer from 10pm => 8am unless you create 2 rules + various issues with attached USB + 2.4Ghz signal that is far from optimal (never able to achieve more than 144-N-Mbps) and I ask myself if I will not contact the store where I purchased this unit and ask a refund (and buy something else from another brand...)
I have the WRT400N router with the latest firmware. Recently I have noticed a device in my DHCP that I do not recognize. It is not device I own (believe me, I have racked my brain and confirmed) as it shows as an Acer pc. I cannot ping the IP address however. I have rebooted my router several times thinking maybe it's a former connected device but saved in memory but it keeps coming back. I am thinking possibly it is someone hi-jacking my Internet, but not sure. I am using WEP security but it shows a LAN connection which is strange for a wireless device. The only hard wired pc is my HP.
we finally got my Cisco refurbished E2500 configured and working downstream from a UVerse 3801HGV box. We had to change the default IP address of the 3801 because it conflicted with the E2500's default. The E2500 is set up to get its Internet IP address using DHCP from the 3801. This is working fine for normal web browsing, etc. However, anything that requires extended connections (downloads, streaming, etc) freezes after a couple of minutes, forcing me to refresh the action to get it started again. Extremely annoying to say the least.
I'm pretty sure that I've tracked it down to the E2500's configuration of the 3801's DHCP allocation. For some reason, the E2500 wants to set the DHCP Lease Time for the 3801's assigned IP address to 10 minutes regardless of the upstream settings from the 3801. The 3801's default is 24 Hours which I've changed to 168Hours (7 days), but the E2500 stays stuck at 10 Minutes. Specifically, I'm referring to the setting displayed on the E2500 under Status>Router>Internet Connection IPV4>DHCP Lease Time.
I have a Cisco/Linksys E2500 router. I connected to it through one of the Ethernet ports with a Microsoft Windows XP Pro machine and installed and ran the setup software. Windows was able to connect to the router and to the internet through the Siemens Gigaset 4300 DSL modem to my internet provider, Windstream.I cannot get my Dell GX620 which is running Linux Debian 6 (Squeeze) to connect to the router through the Ethernet ports.It appears that I receive no reply to the DHCP requests made by Linux.
I have only one monitor, keyboard and mouse and no KVM switch to run both the machines at once. I do have Windows XP Pro running in a VirtualBox virtual machine on the Debian machine,I can configure Debian to a static IP if I knew all of the IP configuration that the E2500 would assign. I would also need to know what reconfiguration the router requires if I use a static IP.
I have ten E4200 routers deployed in five library branches. In recent months, the E4200's in two branches have occasionally gone into a state where they are not always providing an IP address to both wired and wireless devices. Some devices will get an IP fine and others will not, The problem seems to move and the next day the same device will connect fine and others will not. A reset of the router usually clears the problem but it is becoming more frequent and bothersome. For some reason only two locations are effected.
- Firmware version is 1.0.02 build 13
- When I set devices up with static IP's they work fine, so the problem seems to be related to the DHCP service
- The WAN side of the network tests fine with no issues
- I've had these routers deployed for over a year and this problem just started in the past two months
- Routers and AP's are on different channels to prevent interference
- No nearby WiFi signals appear to be casuing any interference
I just got an EA3500 and I guess I don't understand what "Refresh" does when viewing the DHCP client table under the "Status", "Local Network" tab of the web interface, either that or it's not working. If I have active wired and wireless clients and I power off the EA3500, wait a few minutes, then power it back on, the table is blank. If I hit "Refresh" I would expect it to re-populate the table with the connected clients. For whatever reason, it doesn't. I have to physically disconnect and reconnect the E-net cable, or power cycle the wireless client to get them to reappear in the table. Is something wrong with the router or its s/w
My EA4500 will periodically clear out the DHCP Client Table and I will lose internet access.This happens once almost every day, normally in the morning. If I can't access the internet I will check the DHCP client table under Status -> Local Network -> DHCP Client Table and it is always empty.After I select Setup -> Reboot it will work again - when I look at the DHCP client table it is now populated with all my devices. I am on firmware version 2.0.37.
I have DHCP enabled, but I have assigned a static IP to most of my network devices.When I click on the DHCP Client Table, most of the devices are NOT shown even though I know they are connected and working.One device (a Brother printer) that I have assigned a static IP to actually shows up as having an IP from the DHCP range. A Panasonic TV does not show up at all even though it is connected and woking. I have not been able to assign a static IP to it because it does not show up.
I have a Linksys WRT310N v1 with firmware v1.0.10 build 002Jul 19, 2010 My router fails to renew it's DHCP lease from my cable provider, causing internet access to drop. I can still access my cable modem at 192.168.100.1, but I must do a "IP Address Release" then "IP Address Renew" to get back internet access. The router works fine otherwise.
I'm trying to change the DHCP Client Lease Time from 1440 minutes to 480 minutes. When I try to apply the new settings, I'm getting a message that says "Invalid Characters" and it won't stick. I've tried this in three different up-to-date browsers (ie10, Chrome and Firefox). Also, I'm connecting locally through LAN and I have the latest EA6500 Firmware: 188.8.131.52204
When I'm home I can get online but it's slow webstar. I used to be able to get online at the local McDonalds with free wi-fi, real fast. Now, the connection list doesn't show the "FREE McDonalds" connection.
I have: Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter, Windows 7 on ACER Aspire 7741z-4815. It has been updating until recently, don't know if it's because I haven't been online as often or what.
Most devices pass a client name to DHCP when requesting an IP, but some like my smartphone, do not. When a device does not pass a client name garbage is entered as the name of the client name.The first is that when you use the Web Admin pages, and select Status/Local Network/DHCP Clients, the table will not display any clients because there is an error on the page. If you right click and View Source from the browser, you will see all the client entries are there and one of them will have garbage (unprintable characters) for the client name.The second and more serious issue is that the internal DHCP table once corrupt is unstable. I've had my BEFSR41 reboot because of the corruption and then I get IP conflicts on my LAN because the DHCP starts handing out in-use IPs.I'm on hardware version 4.3 and the latest firmware Ver.2.00.4 Build 8 (which is very difficult to install without bricking the router). BTW, when I use a WRT54GL router with the smartphone, it is properly handled by the DHCP and shows a blank client name, not garbage.
On the BEFSR41 v1 series and WRT54G series, what is the maximum value for the DHCP "Client Lease Time (in minutes)?" It seems that 2^16 -1 (65535) minutes is the max. This is about 45 days. has the max value changed with newer versions of these devices?
