Linksys Wireless Router :: EA 4500's Guest Network Shows Unsecured

Feb 18, 2013

I'm not sure why the guest net work is unsecured.  I would have thought that would not be an option but it is unsecured.  How to secure the guest network [2.4 GHz]?  Also when I view the guest list some devices stay displayed whether they are in the vicinity or even turned off.  That adds to my paranoia with the guest network being unsecured.   I also can't edit the screen names to know who the device belongs to like is available in "my devices", forcing me to keep a MAC address list.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT610 Deleting All Files

Aug 16, 2012

I have a wrt610n that I've used for years with no problem. The usb drive I've had plugged into it has worked great for a really long time, but it's fairly small. I bought a WD 1TB hard drive, formatted it with the router set everything up. after about a day I tried to upload a file from work and got an error, and it wiped the harddrive clean. I reloaded thinking it was a fluke and everything worked fine for about a month. Uploading and downloading worked fine from where ever I was at, on the local network or over the internet. Then I tried to upload a small file, got the error and all of my files were gone again.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Seems Deleting Files

Jan 14, 2013

I've got the Cisco E4200  v1 firmware 1.0.04I hooked an usb 2.0 enclosure to it running a WD red "NASware" 1TB drive to it.The drive works just fine, brand new, silent, runs cool enough. I'm not saying it's a super-drive, just not complaining of anything.I started using it as a backup drive. File disappear randomly.Gigabytes of files deleted. No power outages nothing happened, the Router is 24-7 on connected to a UPS. So it is the drive, it was never shut off since connected the drive, about a month ago. It only shares connection among a couple desktop PCs a couple laptops a network printer and a couple smartphones, all updated, all clean that is no virus or anythingI removed the drive from the router and plugged it in the computer.Files were there,even though the files in the root were not all there, it must have crashed during the last modifications, although it's bad, and it's also bad that it does not give you a single sign it has crashed.

In case I delete all files from a directory I can't delete the directory without the error. I map the drive to the windows explorer with the admin account which give read and write access.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - Set Up Wifi Network

Feb 25, 2013

I have the following equipment
E2500 wireless N router (2 of these)
WRT54g router (B/G)
WAP54g access point (B/G)

I am planning to set up a Wi-Fi network for a single story motel. It is C-shaped; about 300 feet along the longest side with "legs" of 120 and 70 feet.Until now I have only used that single WRT54g in the office for the entire property and it covers about half the property (left side.) My plan starts in the office (bottom left) with a WRT54g connected to the DSL modem as it always was. That would be connected to one of the E2500s in the middle so it can cover the most area. From there two others would shoot out to each corner (the other E2500 and the WAP54g). They will all be wired together with Cat 5e "riser cable". The routers will be placed in a wide open attic.
1. I have heard that N routers have a range of 150ft in every direction so that's why I'm putting one in the middle. Keep in mind that while the attic is open and wood constructed, the walls between rooms are concrete firewall and they haven't been wi-fi friendly.

2. Does starting with a B/G router at the modem mean the N routers will revert to B/G?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WTR160N - Changing From Unsecured To Secured

Dec 13, 2012

I have a WTR160N-RM.  I just moved and the cable technician hooked it up unsecured.  I didn't catch it until he left.  I can access the Linksys webite with the standard IP address and generic password, but I'm not sure what needs to be changed.  I've looked at several UTube videos and read some online instructions, but they all different a bit.  How I can secure my wireless again?  I have an old Toshiba LT that just keeps on tickin'.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Can't See Other Computers On Local Network

May 1, 2012

I have a E2500 connected to a cable modem as the base of my home network. Hard wire connected to the E2500 is an linksys 8 port hub and a couple of computers. The 8 port hub is connected to a couple of computers and a xbox. I have the hub as a distro point to cut down on wiring. Wirelessly connected to the E2500 are a variety of laptops, netbooks, ipods, an ipad, a playbook, an iphone, a android phone, a wireless printer and a Ps3. Most of the devices are just using the wifi for internet access. Most devices have been setup with their own ip addresses to avoid ip conflicts. The computers and laptops/netbooks are running either Windows XP, Windows 7 or Mepis Linux. Up until now everything was going as good as can be expected, all the computers could see each other and most could transfer files between each other except when Windows gets picky.In the last few days no computers can see each other. Windows or Linux.Everything can accsess the internet and wirelessly print still just can't see each other. I reset the E2500. I updated the firmware on the E2500. I installed the Cisco Connect software (just in case I was too stupid too setup a router). Still nothing. I can ping other machines from a command prompt in windows or a terminal in Linux and get a good ping back. In the router setup via a browser I can go to the status page and see other devices on the local network but most are just ipods, ipad, playbook and the wireless printer, If I go to the administration page / diagnostics I can ping other computers and get a good answer. I just can see them from each other. I think I've rebooted every thing at least once. Yes the workgroup names are all the same (workgroup) and yes file sharing is turned on on all computers.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Remove Secondary Network From E2500?

May 11, 2012

I set up a linksys e2500 router with name "mynetwork" and WPA2 password.
The network works fine, my laptop connects securely to it.
But when I View Available Wireless Networks , I see a second , unsecure network named "mynetwork-guest" to which my laptop will also connect with no credentials (not sure how that network got there).
How can I find and delete that unsecure network? When I go into my router setup, I only see mynetwork, not mynetwork-guest If it is of any use here is the IP information for both:
The settingd for mynetwork:
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:

The setting for mynetwork-guest:

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Guest Network Bandwidth Throttle?

Dec 30, 2012

I currently use a E2500 router for my home network. I have setup the Wireless guest Network for my downstairs Tenant while he is out of work so he can still have some internet. The problem however is that often the guest network will take up 90% of my 55mb/sec bandwidth, leaving none for the primary network. Is there a way for me to Throttle the amount of bandwidth the Guest network can use? Say alot 10mb/sec for Guest access only, and leave the rest for our main network?

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?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - Different Names For Secured And Guest Network?

Mar 29, 2012

I have a Linksys E2500 router.  Is it possible to have one network name for the secured network and a different network name for the Guest network?  The thought is to not have the SSID of the secured network broadcast while allowing the SSID of the Guest network to be broadcast.  With the convention of simply adding "Guest" to the end of the SSID for the secured network, it defeats the security option of not having the SSID of the secured network broadcast.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 How To Occasionally Change Password To Enter Into Network

Mar 17, 2012

I have an E2500 router.  When I enter as a web address I am asked for a User name and password.  When I do not enter anything for user name and put “admin” in password the screen again asks me for the same two things and eventually goes to a 401 message. 
When I enter admin in user name and my secure password to allow devises to connect to the network it lets me in. I thought the password to enter the system settings  and the one to enter the network are usually separate.  When I open the Cisco Connect program and go into the various menus there my “secure” password is written and visible for anyone who clicks it. Is this how it is supposed to work?Also, how do I occasionally change  the password to enter into the network.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Blank Icon In Windows 8 Network Folder

Dec 14, 2012

I am using Windows 8 and my router is a Linksys E2500, in the Network folder it shows no icon and also I get a error when I right click the device and choose "Network Map" (from what I can tell this feature has been removed from Windows 8.) Both these problems are cause by an outdated Windows 7 driver on the Microsoft Update Catalog (I have Windows 8 configured to download updates/drivers automatically, that's why this installs)The reason there is no icon is because of these entries in the driver INF

Netgear Router (DGN1000) Unable To Connect Wirelessly To Secured Or Unsecured Home Network

Feb 15, 2012

I'll try and keep this brief, we were having problems with our netgear router (DGN1000) mainly with connection when online gaming with PS3, generally poor connection - so purchased a TP-Link router (TD-W8960N). We could usually access the netgear wirelessly on our laptops Dell and Acer Aspire 4820T (both Windows 7) without any problems and were still doing so last night. However hubby attempted to install the new router last night and all seemed to go fine but after installing we couldn't connect to the wireless network through laptops, iphone ps3 etc - even though we could see the network with excellent strength, after hours of trying called TP-Link they went through everything they could think of and still no joy. Gave up in the end and went to reinstall the netgear Router and now we have the same problem with this router, even though earlier in the night it wasn't a problem - we deleted the previous networks so there was nothing stored in memory & tried everything we can think of (although neither of us are brilliant with IT we do usually get by).We even set up an unsecured wireless network (on both routers) and still couldn't connect?
