Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Dropping Skype Calls

Apr 6, 2012

I just bought an e2500 to replace my WRT54g, hoping that it would fix my call dropping problem. I had tried installing some friend recommended third party firmware on the WRT54g that he said would fix my problem, and with my infinite technological wisdom and experience ended up bricking it.

My problem is that randomly during skype calls with my family back home, I will lose internet connection. It drops the skype call and then I cannot open a web page or anything for about 60 seconds. My internets dead, then it just starts working normally again by itself. I can have anywhere from 60 seconds of connectivity up to 20 minutes or more while skyping. This all happens over a wired connection. Changing the router didn't change a thing, the problem still happens in exactly the same way. I have good bandwidth and all that stuff.Also, I watch netflix on my Xbox 360 over a wireless connection. Sometimes it will just lose connection in the middle of a show. However, the difference is that I can reconnect almost instantly after an interruption on that device. I have fixed the settings on the two different channels according to one of the other post I found in this community, and have not tried those settings out yet. This doesn't worry me as much as the wired connection issues.

Linksys Wired Router :: RVS 4000 - Voip PBX Server Is Dropping Calls

Jul 8, 2008

I recently purchased a rvs 4000 wired linksys router for my business.  Everything works great with the exception of my VOIP PBX server.  I can receive a call and make a call one at a time.  If a second line rings in and is picked up the first call and the second go dead air.  I am sure that it is a security setting somewhere that I just can't seem to figure out.  I sure would like to get some direction on this.

Linksys Wireless Router :: New E2500 Dropping Connection?

Dec 8, 2011

I purchased an E2500 router today and it worked perfectly for about 4 hours.  Now it drops my internet connection constantly. I can connect and load maybe 2 pages before that little yellow triangle of doom appears.  Then after 2 or 3 minutes I am good and can reconnect. This cycle just keeps happening.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - Signal Dropping

Mar 28, 2012

I just bought and set up an E2500 wireless router this evening. Using the default settings (as applied by the Cisco setup CD), I was experiencing pitiful range, with signal dropping to 2 out of 4 bars just one room (about 20 feet away). (Previously, using the exact same physical setup with the same computer and a single-band Belkin n150 router, I always had 4 out of 4 bars in that room).
I entered an online live tech chat, and after some back and forth, the tech rep had me change the settings as follows:
(1) Rename the SSID to separate the two bands: One network SSID for the 5GHz band, another for the 2.4GHz.
(2) Turn off auto-channel for both networks: Set 5GHz to stay on channel 36. Set 2.4GHz to stay on channel 1.
(3) The 5GHz is set to use 20/40 MHz width, while the 2.4GHz is set to use only 20MHz width, but I believe those were the defaults already in place.
Then he promptly ended the chat, so we didn't get to finish. Nonetheless, with these settings in place, I am now getting a steady, uninterrupted 4 bars in the next room, using the 5GHz network SSID. Because we were disconnected, I have a few questions remaining:
(1) Is it normal to get such terrible range using the default settings (that's make for a lot of unhappy customers and a lot of extra calls to tech support)? Or does this indicate a problem with my router? (This was a Cisco certified refurbished model) 
(2) Which change 'fixed' the problem: Was it separating the two bands into different SSIDs, or locking the channels rather than using Auto channel? 
(3) Was this just intended as a test to troubleshoot the problem, or am I supposed to leave the router configured this way? (Since we were disconnected, I didn't get to follow up with the tech rep after changing the settings.) With it configured this way, I'm connecting devices that can find the 5GHz network to the 5GHz network's SSID, and the other devices that can't find it, I'm connecting to the separate SSID for the 2.4GHz network. Seems unnecessarily messy to have 2 SSIDs.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Constantly Dropping Connections

Sep 27, 2011

In the last three weeks I replaced a Linksys WRT54G wireless router with a new E2500.  The only reason this was done because the store salesman indicated I should get much better performance over my router that was probably 5 years only.  
Since the install I have had nothing but issues.  I could never get on PC runing XP to connect.  It worked one day and the next morning I could never get it to connect again.  I even removed the encryption and went to WEP with no luck. My laptop that I loaded the software on and initially did the connection I didn't have an initial problem.  The problem I now have is the wireless connection is constantly dropping.  In the course of an hour the connection probably drops 3 to 4 times.  If you leave the PC for several hours, you may need to sign of your user and resign in to get the wireless connection to work. This is an experiment gone bad.  My old router never dropped a connection and every PC in the house stayed connected forever.  This new router is located the same distance as my original one was, but is nothing but a series of failed connection.

Cisco WAN :: 3750 Improve Quality Of Skype Calls

Mar 28, 2012

I'm in charge of the IT of a dorm with 200 inhabitants. A lot of people complain about the bad quality of "skype-calls". Audio is delayed and video stucks. The actual speed of our internet connection should be fast enough so I guess it has something to do with the QOS setting. I checked it on our WLC 3750 and right now we use Silver (best effort). Could there be any improvement when I set it to Platinum?

Cisco VPN :: H323 Calls Dropping Over VPN?

Feb 9, 2011

We have 2 h323 IP phones (non cisco) that connect to an IP PBX via a VPN connection using PIX 5505's at each end.  The VPN seems to work fine and the phones can be used normally with good call quality, display, status...The problem is that when talking on the phones for any extended period of time, the phone reboots, drops the call and then restarts automatically.  This problem usually happens on phone calls lasting 20 minutes or more but has happened on calls as short as 15 minutes.  I have also made calls which have gone 45 minutes before the reboot.  I have removed everything from the network hosting the remote IP phones except for a single phone and the problem still occurs.  It is not a POE Issue as the phones can use a power brick and it still happens.  The same phones work perfectly on-site when not using the VPN.Someone has mentioned that I should adjust the UDP Timout Timers of the VPN.  I don't see any UDP timers and am at a complete loss on what is causing this.  The data traffic does not seem to get dropped when connected accross the VPN for hours at a time.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Reset Static DNS On A Linksys E2500?

Oct 4, 2012

I previously entered in settings for the "Static DNS" 1 through 3 (using ip addresses from OpenDNS and one from Google DNS).
I want to remove these so the router reverts to using the DNS allocated to it by the ADSL modem (which will likely be the IP of the modem, which then forwards the requests to the DNS from the ISP).But I can't clear the Static DNS settings. I have to put in but the last zero is not accessed. I get the error: The value is out of range [1 - 254].So I end up with and then all Internet access is lost on the computers because they are being given a bad DNS IP.
How can I reset the static DNS ip address back to ?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Adding E2500 As Second Set-up

Dec 18, 2012

I want to add my E2500 as a second wireless router to cover my entire house.I have a Motorola Surfboard SBG6580 cable modem (Time-Warner) at one end of the house.I added via powerline Ethernet connection a new E2500 wireless router at the other end of the house.The E2500 set-up with all defaults and has the same SSID and Password as the Surfboard cable modem.It seems to work OK, but I wonder about network confusion/interference.Do I have to configure the E2500 in some manner to allow seamless roaming of my wireless devices (iPad, Cell Phones, Netbook)?I had an RE1000 with just the Surfboard, but it did not quite do the trick, and does not like both routers connected at either end.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Keeps Disconnecting

Aug 7, 2011

I have Time Warner as my internet company. I recently purchased a new Linksys Router Mode E2500 because I have been having issues with my old router. My internet was disconnecting sporadically. After connecting the new router, a started getting the same issue. I replaced my internet cable modem to a Cisco 2100 modem (provided by Time Warner). I noticed that the issue keeps happening sporadically which makes me believe it is my Linksys router. Every time a new wireless connection is connected, my modem circuit dies. This happens sporadically.

Linksys Wireless Router :: VPN Connections On A E2500

Jun 26, 2012

I am working with vpn setups for the first time. I would like to be able to connect to a computer on a home network through a linksys E2500 router. I have found alot of documentation on connecting to an external vpn from a computer on the lan side of the router, but nothing on connecting from the outside in. The router does have a static ip address with my internet provider, so I can contact the router from the outside. But makeing the connection to the computer on the other side of the router is where I am missing something or I dont realize that it is not possible. On the LAN side I am using DHCP to assign the address to the computer I want to connect to. Perhaps I need to make it have a static address also? I realize that when I configure the connection from the outside that I need to direct the connection to the remote computer in some way, unless vpn connections are fully passed through the router and the connection issue I am having is with the "inside" computer.

I have a E2500 connected via LAN to my network via a switch or hub through a sonic wall and into the modem out to the internet. The problem is that I am only getting +/- 5Mpbs Down and +/-7 Mbps up through the router.
If I connect my computer to the network with out going through the router my speeds are more in the range of +/-28 Mbps down and 16Mbps up. I have been working with Linksys support but they have not been able to assist me with this yet! Is there any configuring I should be doing at the firewall or to the router to tell it to open up the port for faster speeds?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - Set Up One Way Connectivity From Laptop?

Mar 13, 2013

I just installed the E2500 wireless router, and it works great for all devices we've tried so far. Here's the thing: we have a laptop that has been humming perfectly along for more that 12 years because we have never let it be touched by the internet. It has built in wi-fi, but we've never connected it. It has no viruses, no Microsoft creep, we've never had to purchase a virus software update and it has outlasted every piece of computer equipment we've ever owned. We'd like to keep it that way!
But now that the wireless printer is working beautifully, we want to know if there's a way to send the laptop through the router to the wireless printer, but not expose it to the internet. Is that possible?
