Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 - Blocking Communication Between Apple TV And Laptop

Oct 9, 2010

I'm about to return my E3000 because I can't figure this problem out. As you know a new Apple TV was released and along with it you now have the capability to send music and photos from iTunes on your laptop to your Apple TV which you can then play on your TV. These two components communicate through your wireless router. However this is not happening because (I believe) that the E3000 is blocking something (a port, some rouge firewall setting, etc.). I would be happy opening every frigging port this thing has and blocking all it's internal firewalls just to see if I can get these two devices working correctly. The software that allows this to all occur is called Airplay via your homeshare g network. Any success in getting your Apple TV and your iTunes and perhaps your iPhone to call communicate together or how the E3000 works.

Motorola (SVG 1202) - Router Is Blocking Communication

Aug 11, 2012

I have this motorola router, SURFBOARD SVG1202 and I can't connect to my university VPN. It says my router is blocking the communication. After some days trying to understand why, I saw that it was needed to enable some options at So, I went there and enabled IPsec PassThrough and PPTP PassThrough under the router options and also added my MAC Addr. Then I restarted the router, However when I try to connect into it again (via DHCP, auto IP), it says "null/limited connection" ( I cant even try a vpn connection, Since it is null/limited, I have to choose static ip mode, inserting a IP/gateway/my service DNS under network options, then I can connect to internet again (see image), but router is still blocking the VPN access, hanging at "verifying account. And password." later gives error 619 related to router blocking

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Occasional Loss Of Communication

May 14, 2012

All of a sudden I started experiencing occasional loss of communication with my router. I tried updating the firmware to the latest (1.0.04) but am still experiencing the same thing.I don't lose internet access, I lose connection to the router itself. If I power cycle the router, the connection is re-established and I'm able to access the router and in turn the internet. I'm seeing this on both wired and wireless connections. Last night the Cisco logo actually turned off when I lost connection (this was a first). When I power cycled, connection was restored and the logo lit up again.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Dies After Streaming From Mac To Apple TV

Dec 5, 2012

I got an Apple TV a few weeks back and we've been using it a lot, especially to stream Netflix.  However, another application that I got it for was for streaming iPhoto slideshows and iMovie stuff to the Apple TV with Airplay's screen sharing.  This event scenario has played out several times.....  Screen sharing is up and going and it'll be working great.  All of a sudden the TV will go back to the main Apple TV menu on its own.  Upon further review at this point, NONE of my WiFi (iPhone, iPad, etc.) devices will connect to the network and I have to power cycle the router.  Router lights are on, but no one's home.  At this point, it'll boot back up and then everything will be fine, at least for a while.Tonight, I was showing vacation pictures to some family and this same process happened twice.  Since I can't seem to figure out how to stop playing a slideshow in iPhoto and then start it again in the middle, it's very annoying.  Here are some relevant troubleshooting points to consider:
1.  This network problem (or something similar to it) has happened in the past, but whatever it is, streaming a slideshow really seems to aggravate it.  This seems to be the only scenario that I can do to actually INDUCE the issue.  Periods of long uploads or downloads are fine.  Streaming audio from one device and similar usage seems to be fine, but this scenario fails pretty much every time, and not necessarily right away.
2.  After having this issue tonight multiple times, I stopped trying to stream an actual iPhoto slideshow and just went into the album and scrolled through the pics one by one.  I did this for at least an hour with no issue.  But with an actual slideshow, it failed twice in 30 minutes or less.  And it's happened before tonight as well.
3.  It doesn't appear to make a difference what application I'm streaming from on the Mac.  Whether it's iPhoto, iMovie, or even Facetime.  
-MacBook Pro Specs - OS X 10.8.2 - Late 2011 Model
-Apple TV - MD199LL/A, v5.0.2
-Router - Linksys/Cisci E1000 - Firmware v2.1.02
I've got a fair amount of devices in my home that use WiFi, but there was nothing irregular going on in the house to generate an excessive amount of internal network traffic or anything like that.  My gut says the problem is with the router, but it's only a few months old, and I've updated the firmware to no avail.

Cisco Wireless :: WLC 5508 To Use Apple Bonjour Service For Apple TV And IPads

Oct 22, 2012

A customer of ours has the following access points and wireless lan controllers on site.  They want to use the Apple Bonjour service with Apple TV's and iPads.  I have enabled multicast feature of the 5508 globally and one the SSID.The Apple TV has an ethernet connection and the iPads connect over the wifi.  The Apple tv is on the same subnet as the iPad's - the Bonjour features do work for approx 5/10 minutes then it stops working for some reason. The Access Points plug into a Cisco 2960 Layer 2 switch, the 5508 controllers plug are in LAG mode and plug into a Nortel Layer 3 stack which I have enabled IGMP snooping.I've read that the Apple Bonjour service isnt designed to work on a multi subnet network - but both the Apple TV and iPad are connected on the same subnet.  Sounds like some kind of timeout but not too sure.

I've disabled windows firewall and completely uninstalled macafee firewall. Im using windows vista and have the latest version of iTunes installed.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Apple Bonjour Packet Support For WRT110

Jul 10, 2011

Can the WRT110 forward Bonjour packets?  I have one WRT110 running my home wifi network with firmware version 1.0.07.  I've spent hours trying to get my iPad to print to a wireless printer (HP D110a).  I can print and scan from several wireless PC's on the same network but cannot see the HP printer.  I started with the WEP 128-bit and then switched to WPA for a while but no luck so I switched back to WEP.  I've read that other's have had similar problems with this and other Linksys routers.
From the iPad point of view I have iOS version 4.3.3.  When I try to Airprint, for example through the Safari web browser, I see no printers available.  I've tried many apps all with the same problem.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120n - Intermittent Connection For Apple Devices

Dec 3, 2011

I recently upgraded my Linksys wrt120n router firmware & had to reconfigure settings.  Subsequently, some (but not all) of my apple devices are having intermittent wireless connection problems.  Specifically, my ipad1 & ipad2 never lose their connection but a mac book pro (~ 2 years old), iPhone 3g, iPhone 4, older iPod touch & very old i book g4 all work for a period of time (usually 1/2 day) & then lose their connection.  When I attempt to reconnect these devices I receive the following error..."unable to join the network xxxxxx....".  I also have a Dell laptop (1 1/2 yrs old) that generally does not have the connection problem.  Finally, when the devices do lose their network connection all I have to do to reconnect is go to the Linkys router setup webpage & click on save & the wireless connection works again (almost like this is just refreshing the connection for these specific apple devices).  I was not having any problem prior to the firmware upgrade & from what I have read the older firmware version is no longer available so going back to the old firmware does not appear to be an option.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Dropping Apple IPad 2 At Random Times

Feb 8, 2012

Had an E4200 for a couple of months now and have not been able to resolve an issue with the router dropping an Apple iPad 2 at random times.The E4200 is replacing a Cisco Aironet 1200, which never dropped any clients, iPad 2 or others, and never displayed any of the issues below.
TECH DETAILS:The E4200 is being used purely as an access point.  All extras are not in use and are disabled.

Firmware 1.0.03
Hardware version 1.
BASIC ISSUE:The E4200 drops an Apple iPad 2 off the 2.4 Ghz Mixed (B, G, N) network.  The user must then select the network to rejoin.  Rejoining occurs without incident.  The same issue occurs when the network is restricted to B, G.  The drops occur at what appears to be random intervals - sometimes 10 minutes apart, sometimes hours apart.  We can have as many as 6 drops in an hour.  A ping to the apple ipad shows the device stops responding to pings about 10 seconds before the user is prompted to rejoin a network.  Meanwhile, a ping to the E4200 itself from a laptop connected via the E4200 on the same radio as the ipad continues to work without fail during this incident.

1. The iPad 2's cannot connect to the 5Ghz radio.  I believe iPad 2's are supposed to support 5Ghz.

2. Both our Apple TVs do not connect to the 5Ghz radio: they fail with a "There was an error connecting to the network. Check your settings and try again. (-3914)" error.  Apple TV supports 5Ghz.

3. The admin interface for the E4200 is very slow sometimes.  Probably over 20 seconds to render some pages when it gets really bad.  As a comparison, Internet-based pages on fast sites that delivered via the E4200 itself load in less than 2 seconds.

4. The HTTPS version of the admin interface can only be connected to via Safari browers.  Both Internet Explorer 9 and Chrome 16 fail to connect with a "Connection reset" error.  In Chome, it says "Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset."  This is across multiple devices.  There is no issue with straight HTTP.
All other devices - including Macs and PCs - connect fine with the E4200 on both 5Ghz and 2.4 Ghz radios, even if they cannot access its admin interface via HTTPS.I've presented quite a few issues above, but the main one is the drop outs for the iPad 2 devices.  I'd present logs on drops, but the thing doesn't record any useful logs.
Basic wireless config:

Network Mode: Wireless-N Only
Channel width: Auto (20 or 40 Mhz)
Channel: Auto (DFS)
SSID Broadcast: Enabled

Linksys Wireless Router :: Extending E4200 Network With Apple Airport Extreme?

Sep 22, 2011

I've recently purchased an E4200, and while it works great, I'd like to use my Apple Airport Extreme (2nd generation) to extend my network to another part of the house that doesn't get as great of a signal.  I've become very frustrated trying to accomplish it, and I'm not sure if the problem is more from the Linksys end, the Airport end, or if it's just me.

I am using a EA4500 and use Linksys Smart Wi-Fi to manage the device. In the household we have multiple Apple i devices. Somehow the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi combined two separte i devices (iPhone 5 and a 4th generation iTouch) to one user.The devices actually have different names, but the Smart Wi-Fi is combining them into one device. So I can't use Parental Controls on one of the devices.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Is Blocking Website

Mar 19, 2012

I have a Linksys E2500 wireless router. It seems to be blocking a website ( I cannot access this site from any of the computers/ devices in our house, whether they be connected by ethernet or wireless.  However, when i move to a different network, I can connect to this site immediately from exactly the devices that do not connect in our house.
How can I determine how/if the router is somehow blocking this site? I have reset the router and upgraded the firmware. Same problem persists.  I see nothing in the router settings that would be blocking this site, and I have certainly done nothing intentional in the settings to block this. We used to be able to connect to this with no problems, but all of a sudden, we are blocked.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V2 Blocking 1 Client?

May 28, 2012

I've had this router for years. I have 2 servers always on, 1 computer with skype, and a 2nd linux machine with ports SSH, bittorrent, and SFTP open. Nearly all the port forwards are assigned to support this.
I got a brand new desktop with lots of CPU/Ram and was using it for development. The network card kept "going out" I would be online and all of a sudden no connections would go out from it.As I tested and diagnosed it I found it still got and held a valid IP, received DNS, but no HTTP or FTP connections would work externally. If I tried to HTTP or FTP to any computer locally on the network it would work fine. But try to access the internet and it was nothing. Restaring the machine would solve it but only for a while, usually run normally for 10-15 minutes then lose network again.. re-installed the drivers, the OS, but the problem remained. I shelfed the unit figuring it was an internal problem with the desktop since it was the only machine.Recently I got a refurbished laptop. to my surprise, it began doing the same thing as soon as I used it! exact same symptoms. So I pulled the old desktop out and it runs completely fine now! the problem has 'transfered'  from the desktop to the laptop so I now believe its the router. The router does it to both wired and wireless devices, and seems to target one device at a time to be bitchy to. Allows them to run for a while and then blocks all outgoing port 80/443/21 from that device.
Firmware Version: v2.0.03 Because of DNS issues with the modem the static DNS is transfered directly to my service providers DNS machine NAT enabled, all other advanced routing disabledSPI is onall Internet filters are on, all Web filters are off on FirewallVPN functions disabledAccess Restrictions are offAll Single Port Forwarding slots are directed to  2 machines (which have no problems)No port range triggeringno DMZ or priorities set on QoS
Everything that I know to check for (security, filters, restrictions) are showing errors or something that might cause this. I believe it may be related to the IP expiring, and when the IP renews the router stops permitting its traffic outbound.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N - Internet Files Blocking Access To Router?

I accidentally connected to computer fix it firm that linked to my PC and wanted a large sum to fix the problem which he said was due to large number of temp?? internet files and once removed he would change the IP address of the desktop computer? Is this diagnosis logical and can I do it on my own. The router is definetely working - both laptops access the internet and I was recently able to hook up a Samsung Blu-Ray player using the same security code I used for the I-Phone.

There is a way to block access to a website by password protecting it through my linksys router, which is one of thoe wrt54gs. I know I can completely block access of a website and can restrict the viewing hours of facebook at certain times through the router admin IP site but was wondering if it was possible to make it so you have to use a password to view said certain site. If there isn't is there any way maybe through a program or do I have to go through my ISP to see if they can do what I am asking for.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Firmware 1.0.02 Blocking VPN Access?

Aug 6, 2011

I cannot connect to my company’s VPN after installing the current firmware (FW_E4200_1.0.02.013_US_20110524) on my E4200 router. Version 1.0.01 was on the router when I received it, and it worked without issues. As soon as I upgraded version 02, I could not initialize a VPN connection. When I try to start a VPN session, I get a "page not found" error when attempting to initiate SSL VPN service using a Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway. VPN pass through is enabled for all protocols in the e4200’s setup. As soon as I revert to firmware 01, everything works fine again.
I did a fresh download and re-flashed the 02 firmware just to make sure that it wasn’t an issue with a bad download or a faulty flash. The problem is consistent and repeatable. I have upgraded and downgraded twice, and the results are exactly the same. My VPN connection works with firmware 01, and it fails with version 02. There is a something different in the 02 firmware that is blocking VPN access.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1500 / ISP Blocking ICMP On WAN Side

Oct 5, 2012

Device: Linksys E1500 - firmware: 1.0.01? I've got a static IP setup for a small remote office and want to keep tabs on their internet connection by pinging it via a monitoring program we use. However, the router seems to not responding to ICMP.

- Filter Anonymous Internet Requests is unchecked.- I've verified that the Static IP is correct.

- I've tried pinging from several remote locations on different connections, with no avail.
I can't seem to figure out why i can't ping this device. I just want to make sure there isn't a setting in the wireless router that is preventing echo replies.The only other thing i can assume is that Comcast is filtering ICMP on their side of the WAN connection.EDIT: Here's a traceroute from my PC to the WAN side of the Linksys....
Tracing route to [50.194.XXX.XXX]over a maximum of 30 hops:  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  2     6 ms    16 ms     6 ms  3     9 ms     8 ms     8 ms  4     7 ms     7 ms     7 ms  5     8 ms     7 ms     7 ms [208.57.XXX.XXX]  6     7

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 And Blocking Apps / Ports?

Feb 21, 2013

I bought the EA6500 yesterday, to replace my E3200.Formerly, with the E3200, I was able to block applications on the router admin page, without blocking all internet access, under the "Access Restrictions" Tab. I could create access policies that allowed internet access to specific devices, while blocking port ranges/protocols for specific applicatons. while this didn't work for Skype, which jumps from one port to the other until it finds an open one, it worked perfectly for World of Warcraft. the primary target of my common with the old setup for the E3200, the new cloud login allows me to block internet access completely to a device. it also allows me to block websites to my heart's content, an improvement upon the old system, which stopped at four. but to my great surprise, it will not allow me to specify port blockages for specific apps for specific devices., while the new EA6500 is blessed with the added capability of actually recognizing applications by name, *it is only to give them greater priority*. the Media Prioritization tab lets you give a ton of your bandwith to specific apps, but won't let you throttle or block them. Is there some way to work around this? Some alternative firmware? again, I don't want/need to block all internet access to a particular computer. I only need to block some apps (World of Warcraft, and Skype, possibly some torrents) by closing some ports.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Blocking New IPSec VPN Connection?

Nov 21, 2011

I have a Linksys E2500 Firmware Version: 1.0.03 and am using the "IPSec Passthrough" for work. On a typical day I'll sign in to my work's VPN, do my work, sign off in the evening, and read my personal email with a direct connection to the internet.
Then on the next morning, I am unable to connect to work until I go to and click "reboot." And as soon as the modem finishes rebooting, my laptop can connect to work. I've tried this several days in a row now, and indeed all I need to do to get the VPN passthrough working is rebooting the modem.
Nothing under "Applications & Gaming" is set. I've seen some posts about having a trigger on UDP port 500, but I'm not quite sure how to translate it for the E2500. Plus I'd rather the router "just work" day after day for VPN and everything else, like my old router did! Is there some other setting to try or clearer directions for a bulletproof IPSec passthrough on that unit?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Setting Up Website Blocking On WRT310N?

Sep 12, 2009

Setting up website blocking.  I have set up access restrictions for selected times and days but I also want to set up access restrictions for webistes.  Perhaps I'm just not clear on how this is supposed to work - I created a policy called 'Site' and then enter the URL in the website blocking area.  The options under the 'Access Restrictions' area are either 'Allow' or 'Deny' - intuitively one would assume the selection should be 'Deny' since this policy is to block access to specific URL's.  However, if I click 'Deny' and then save, then the URL's I just entered are cleared.  However, if I select 'Allow' then I am essentially giving 24hour access every day to my computers (but blocking the URLs), which then seems to go against the access restrictions I set up for selected times and days.  Perhaps these two policies are mutually exclusive but it does not seem clear that it is.
