Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 - Guest Access To Internet Not Working?
Jul 8, 2011
We have the E3000 Router and the guest internet access DOES NOT work. We occasionally repair other people's PC's and I seriously do not want to allow access to our home network. Recently, we are trying to access through guest, on a Win 7 Dell Notebook. It takes the passcode but no internet connection.
Using Cisco Connest I set up a password for guest access. It will function for a time then suddenly become insecure. Sometimes it will function for a month, sometimes a week. I have to reset the Unit to factory defaults each time and began again.
I switched from comcast to att uverse. I was happy about the guest-access feature of E3000 when using the comcast, where I can directly connect my e3000 to the modem (basically you can see two network, one is XXX, the other is XXX-guest). However, the ATT uverse has a gateway that combines the modem and router together, in order to use my e3000 instead of the built-in router of the gateway, I have done a LAN-to-LAN connection and I can access internet without any problem. But in this case, I can not enable my guest-access feature. When I use Cisco Connect to set up e3000, it says "cannot connect to your router". how to set up the guess-access feature of e3000 when using ATT uverse.
I have an E3000 that I am just setting up.I have two issues:
1> I am replacing a WRT110. I had the old router set with a static IP address supplied by my ISP. I configured the E3000 with the same address and I cannot access the internet. Are there any tricks to setting this up on an E3000?
2> As configured I there is a guest network setup. BUT when I access the router I don't see the tab to be able to configure it.
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.
I just installed and started using my E3000. Love it so far but I have a question about the guest network. I did set one up with a network name and password. It does show up under available networks but as an unsecured one. How do I go about securing it?
I haven't found a way to rename the Guest account on my E3000 router. If my router is named HomeRouter the Guest account automatically gets the name HomeRouter-guest. I have disabled the router's SSID broadcast, but it still broadcasts the almost identical Guest account.
Internet policy access on my Linksys E3000. I am trying to block facebook.com to a particular ip address in my office. This what I did. Logged in to control panel clicked on access restriction. Clicked on add. Gave it a name. Clicked the applies to drop down box and selected by ip address. Unchecked the block all internet access. Typed facebook down in the window below. Saved.Not blocking access.
I can now access my router config pages when connected to my ATT router. However, I cannot seem to access the Internet when connected to my e3000; I just time out. I also have difficulties just connecting to my e300 for some reason. I have been connected a couple of times where i could access the Internet but it was only for a few minutes and it was very slow.I can't seem to put the router in the DMZ because the ATT router will only DMZ a DHCP-enabled device and the e3000 has a static IP (192.168.1.253). I have tried running the PING and Traceroute diagnostics and both just come back with Unknown Host no matter what URL i enter. The status page also appears as if the e3000 is not properly talking to the ATT router. Under the Internet Connection area it shows Connection Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP then 0s for IP address, subnet, and gateway. the DNS entries are empty and the MTU shows 1500 and the DHCP Lease Time is also empty. i am all ears and willing to try whatever. But i just want to be able to connect to my e3000 so i can utilize the wireless n internally and connect a 2TB external drive to share. But I also want to be able to get out to the Internet when i am connected to the device.
I have had numerous issues with my E3000 since I got about two months ago and they have all been resolved with the exception of this new one that popped up today.
My Samsung Blu-ray player is connected firectly via ethernet cable to the router. When it's on, I lose all conenctivity to the router with my wireless devices including three PC's, a PS3, two iPhones, one iPad, one Samsung Smart TV, one XBOX 360 and an Onkyo Receiver. When I say that I lose connectivity, I don't mean that I lose access to the Internet. My PC's see the network but cannot connect to it, the same goes for the Apple devices. The moment I shut off the Samsung BD player it kicks right back on and works normally. Until today, this never occurred.
I contacted Tech Support and they had never heard of this happening before. They suggested that I change the ethernet cable which I did while the unit was on and it worked until I turned the BD player off and turned it back on again. I also tried switching ports to no avail. Alos all of the software is up to date on both the router and the BD player.
I just installed my new Cisco E3000 and configured it over the HTTP interface, as I have on previous routers. I am unable to find any setting for the "Guest" wireless network (outbound internet only), or the Parental controls. Both of these are features of interest, and they're simply not listed in any of the web-based settings.
Puzzled, I did a Factory Reset and configured it via the Cisco Connect instead.. this had the Guest feature and Parental controls, but none of the other features I need, like QOS, or Port Forwarding, or DHCP disable.
It seems like the Web interface only configures some settings, and the Cisco Connect configures other settings, but I can't use them both.
Where does one set up the additional password for Guest access? Other than this, the router works fine on 2.4 & 5 GHz, nice..
I have an E3000 with firmware version 1.0.04 with WiFi configured as:Guest5GHz (only N)2.4 GHz (only G)I use the guest network access for my guests or my neighbor.Usually they connect and the first page they see in the browser is the http://192.168.33.1/login.asp were they put the password. Some times shomething don’t work and the browser don’t show the page, so the people can’t use the connection because they get a timeout error.The only solution I have in this case is to resart the router, but sometimes is not enough and I have to fisically shotdown and restart it.The login.asp page starts with: This is UNPUBLISHED PROPRIETARY SOURCE CODE of CyberTAN Inc. the contents of this file may not be disclosed to third parties, copied or duplicated in any form without the prior written permission of CyberTAN Inc. This software should be used as a reference only, and it not intended for production use! What about a firmware update to fix it and give the control from the web administration over the guest network?
There is no "blinking light" indication on my E3000 at the Internet (Yellow label) and Ethernet port no 4. I tried plugging in 2 cables at all of the ports. I got the blinking indication at Port 1 through 3. The same cable's have no response at Port 4 and Internet port. As a result my I am not able to connect to the internet.
I just bought an E3000 about 30 hours ago and just unrealistically my router now doesn't want to give me any WiFi at all. I tried reset button, tried re plugin all of my system as well as pressing for short and long period the middle button that indicates WiFi is accessible. I already bought 3 linksys routers.
Looking at upgrading my router to an e3000 however I've got a couple of questions. I might come across as a bit thick with this one but I have read that you need a modem to make the router work, I can't get my head around this as I've not come across this before. I always thought the router was the modem!! I've also heard that the E3000 only works with cable ISP and not ADSL, is that true?
I would like to put an E2000 in an office where clients are coming and going throughout the day. When the documentation says that there is a maximum of 10 guest network users allowed (with a default setting of 5) what exactly does that mean ? I don't want the first 10 guest-clients who come in, connect to the guest network, then leave the office to consume all 10 slots for the day.If I have 50 people that come and go from the office throughout the day who connect to the guest 192.168.33.X network and attempt to enter the password (but no more than 10 guests authenticated at any given time) will all 50 be successful in connecting ? Or do I have to reduce the Client Lease Time to something less than the default setting of one day ?
I have an E3000 and I just cannot get my pogoplug NAS working with it. It shows up as it should on the local network, but cannot connect with the mothership for internet access when behind my router. I have tried stock firmware, DDWRT, and Tomato, all do not work. I have tried assigning it a static IP, DMZ, new cables, different ports, all do not work. It activates immediately with an old WRT54G in the same configuration, which is Cable modem-->Ooma VOIP-->E3000-->Pogoplug.
So I just setup my new E3000, upgrading from a WRT54G. The uPnP worked great on that router and my last three routers before that. Xbox never required I setup anything -- I can prove this simply by swapping routers and putting one of the old ones in place of the E3000.However, the E3000 (Firmware Version: 1.0.02) is not working with uPnP. Xbox connectivity test comes back and says that my NAT type is "Moderate". Most stuff works fine, but I'd like to get it all working. I worked with a Linksys tech who got NAT to "Open" by configuring triggered port forwarding. I am happy to have my issue resolved, but confused why uPnP didn't work? I mean it was easy for me to configure port forwarding, but for my less technical friends, should I simply not recommend this router because it can't do basic uPnP?
I used to have a WRT54G Router at home. I would regularly use Cisco Systems VPN Client to connect to my work router and the RDP to my work PC. (The router at work is Cisco 2811.)A couple months ago, I finally upgraded my home router to a Linksys E1000. Since that time, I have NOT been able to:1) Connect from my work PC to my home PC using Windows RDP2) Connect from home PC to VPN at work via Cisco VPN ClientIt's like the Linksys router at home an Cisco router at work refuse to speak to each other.A week ago, I finally gave up and bought a Linksys E3000. Exact same connect problems as the E3000.To test, I plugged my old WRT54G back in just to see, and lo and behold, all my connection problems go away. Plus the E3000 in again, and I cannot connect b/w home and work.A few other notes:From work, I have successfully used RDP to reach out to other test PCs (friends computers), but I can't get to my home network with the E3000 working. I also can connect to home via RDP using other internet connections, like if I'm in a hotel or airport.It's just that my Linksys E3000 at home and the Cisco 2811 at work refuse to acknowledge each other.
I have Linksys e3000 , I used the web interface to set up the storage. I also from the Administration option of the Storage inside Web Interface changed the netbios name or Device name to the one I like. Now the name does not resolve to the ip address. It used to when I had recently unpacked. I can still access my drive by IP address.
I cannot get the Guest Network feature to work.Even though Guest SSID is enabled, it does not show up on any devices attempting to connect. Manually connecting by entering the Guest SSID fails (not recognized). On devices with the primary 5 and 2.4 GHz configured they do see the third network but without SSID (unknown) and are also unable to connect to it manually using the SSID.I did not try this before 1.0.02. Have rebooted modem and verified all configs (multiple times). The network is live in an office and can't keep screwing with it or drastically changing its settings.
i used to have everything setup properly, Upnp (streaming from PS3), FTP server, Public drive. Everything was working perfect. One day, my drive stopped responsing, and because I had a Security IP camera uploading pictures on it, I thought it was full. The partition was corrupted so I formated the drive. Since then, whatever disk I plug to the router, the "create share" window is not working properly.
I used Cisco connect to set up guest access with a secure password. Cisco Connect now indicates guess access is allowed and shows the password. However, when I actually try to connect to the guest network, it shows no security at all, and I can join the network without a password.
I have WRT150N, with firmware version 1.01.9 and I can not get the internet access policy to work.Here are my settings: PC list is configured through IP range as follows:Even if I deny internet access completely, I can still access the internet.
I have a Cisco RV082 and I would like to connect my E3000 to it and use it as just a wireless access point. Is it possible to do this with the E3000 so the RV082 is providing the routing functionality?
I am using firmware version 1.0.04 build 6.I am having a few issues viewing the log; the incoming, outgoing and security logs are completely blank, the DHCP log is the only one populated.Even though it's populated, the time stamp displays the date as Jan 1 1970, time appears fine if I use UDT (Time is set to Mountain), the Router Status correctly displays the current time for my location.I vaguely remember the other logs worked with a previous firmware 1.0.03? Don't recall if the Date Time stamp was working correctly.
I have comcast cable and a Linksys E3000 that has been pretty reliable. I have a website that I use to send some information to. Friday morning was the last time I could connect to this page. I cannot hit it via web, ssh, or ftp or ping. I can view it at work and on my 3g internet. But no more from home. I have determined that it has to be the router (straight connection into cable modem and I'm in). I've reboot the router and even restored to factory spec, neither works.
I have access restrictions set up for certain wireless devices in my home that the kids use to kick them off at 11 pm and keep them off all night. where I am running into a problem is I want to block these same devices from downloading anything without my permission my son downloads everything he sees, Comcat has already threatened to kick us off their service if we go over 250 gb bandwidth use in a month again. so I want to configure something in the router that will block all downloads for specific wireless devices. with the access restrictions I have set up I used the mac address not just the ip so they have no way around it I constantly monitor what is connected. I am using the stock firmware as well
There is one guest interface, one guest WLAN. The WLAN is set with a DHCP override address of the guest interface. But it no longer allows this as I found out. Anyway, I can get the client to now receive an address from the internal pool on the WLC, but it will not route to the authentication page. I noticed that the WLC excludes the clients attempting to connect on the guest WLAN due to failed 802.1x authentication! the WLC never even gave me the chance to authenticate using an account created either through the lobby ambassador or creating one directly on the controller.
The guest network on the router keeps going down. It can be seen but it cannot be connected to. Sometimes it works for a day or 2 and then it doesn't. I have to constantly babysit the network and it is entirely frustrating because the only fix is to reboot the router.I have tried factory resetting several times.I have tried re-flashing the fw.I'm using the non-CCC fw because CCC had way, way too many issues.These routers have been out for months and many people have been having issues and somehow Cisco doesn't see fit to work on firmware that stabilizes them at all? It's like, they release a router and then forget about it - the next batch comes along, often the same guts with a different shell and it's the same thing over again. I had a WRT610N and I said I'd never buy another Cisco after that but I broke my rule because of being lured by these "App enabled" features, which mind you have nothing at all over the competition since the CCC doesn't even work for most people.
Purchased E3200 and did simple setup via CD setup (Cisco connect). Set up main name and password. Cisco Connect assigned "-guest" to end of main name for the guest account. Gave guest account its own password. Both main and guest accounts were broadcasting OK -- but guest account was not secure and could be accessed without password. (All software and firmware upgrades were done during initial setup).Reset the E3200 and restarted things from the CD setup. Created main account, main account password, and guest password again. In advanced settings, left basic wireless settings at initial settings, changed wireless secutiy to WPA2 Personal. Still having the guest account being broadcast in unlocked status. (Have turned off guest access for now until I can get password protection for it).
