Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Lost Data On External 2TB WD Essentials
Dec 16, 2012
I had my external drive plugged into the e3000 with the network drive mapped on 2 laptops. One day my connection was slow so I backdoored the router ip (I didn't use cisco connect) to reset the router from my iPhone. I'm not sure exactly what was changed, but the partition disappeared from the drive. I've used a couple file recovery programs to try and retrieve the 250+ Gb data that was on the drive with no luck. They only find "deleted" files. Not the 13k files that were there and not deleted. The drive was never bootable. What to be used to recover the files.
My E3000 has been running for months without a hitch. Last night, it lost connectivity on the 2.4 GHz. I can connect on my laptop (Dell, XP) on the wireless 5 Ghz only. Wired connections (2 PCs and one video device) connect fine. All wireless equipment (laptops and LG DVD device needing 2.4 GHz) see the 2.4 GHz with good signal but will not connect. Of course, I rechecked name and passwords.
I tried the MSR restart and reboot several times, including turning things off overnight. Checked to be sure settings were not corrupted in setup.E3000 running firmware 1.0.04.
I have E4200 v1 with 1.0.3 firmware and an old 2.5"/120GB hard drive. Today I discovered that all my data where lost. They were there not longer than a couple of days ago. I'm almost sure it's not my fault and the drive is healty. I'm now moving back datas onto it and I will check for them daily.
1) I had no power loss;
2) I didn't reboot nor I didn't switch it off/on;
3) I didn't copied files since days;
4) The last time I used it I just browsed files;
5) It's not exposed to the internet but just to local network;
6) The router hasn't logged admin logon other than from my computers.
I have an e300 router with my external hdd connected via the USB port. I am trying to figure out how to access the hdd remotely. I am not trying to get to it through remote desktop access. I have my laptop that I take with me when away from home but I would like to be able to access the hdd via Internet.
I currently have a E3000 router. I have set up a shared USB drive successfully through this router. After a couple of months, I needed to re-locate my router into a different room. After doing so, I plug back in the USB drive and cannot access it. If I go through the GUI, it tells me that the drive type is not supported, and if I just plug it into a computer to obtain the infromation off of it, I get a "drive is corrupted" error
I have a new Linksys E3000, 2 wired disktops (1 windows 7, 1 windows vista), 2 wireless laptops (both windows Vista), whenever the computers power down into sleep mode and are woke up, I have lost my connections to the router and I am forced to restart the computer. I've been told by one person that this is a problem with vista and windows 7, but wouldn't that have been a problem with my old router also?
I have the E3000 and have attched a WD 1TB USB drive. I set it up for FTP and Media sharing and it worked fine but somehow recently I could not connect anymore. I checked the router and all of my setting for the FTP and Media server were gone. The disk drive still shows avaiable but now it shows the entire 1TB free (it was at least half used). This is the second time this has happened, first I tjhought it was a bad disk and replaced it but now it happened again. I did do a power cycle some time ago but I remember it still work after that. Not sure why I am losing my settings. This does not give me a comfort level as to storing anything valuable on that drive.
I have a E3000 and just upgraded my Mac with the OS X Mountain Lion. I can't access my external HD anymore, although when I go to the router set up, on the storage tab, the router appears to recognize the HD.
I have connected my LaCie rugged drive to the router and would like to use it as backup storage and as a way to stream video to my PS3.When I go to my advanced settings for the router and go to the storage heading I can see my LaCie and its specifications. There is a button next to it that says "claim", which I press, but nothing happens.I don't have the option to create a shared folder, and I can't access the drive from my Mac.On a somewhat related note, I've enabled the media server and can find it on my PS3, but there is nothing in the root folders. How do I put stuff (movies, music,etc.) into these root folders?
I correct in understanding that when an external hd is connected to the e3000 via usb, that i can read and write to it, but i cannot delete files from the external drive? i have been trying to figure this out for a while and cannot delete files after i write them.
I have just bought an E3000 router when my old router died last week. I am having two problems:
1. The data rate slows down after a period of time (long message trail elsewhere)
2. I cannot see everything on the network.
I have several Win 7 computers, two win xp computers, three NAS devices (linux based), and a printer sitting on the network, along with two switches to cope with all the traffic (not to mention iPods, iphones etc.)With my old router, I couold see everything plugged into the network from my main Win 7 computer. (note: the win 7 network map does not always work, but the windows explorer window of the network always showed everything).With the E3000 router, I can only see 1 or 2 of the devices on the network. If I reboot the router, then sometimes all of the devices appear on the windows explorer window (sometimes not)I am running a workgroup (not a domain) and i am not using win 7's homegroup because that will not work with the non-win 7 devices.Is there a setting that will see all of the devices in Win 7 (either on the router or on the computers). I suspect it is a router issue as it worked with my old Zyxel router.
Just checked that my ISP provides me with two Static IP's, called them and they confirmed its running, however the modem that they gave me only has one ethernet port, to which my Linksys E3000 is connected. I am trying to set up this new IP and dedicate it to my new WHS 2011 machine, so I can remote manage it. It having a static IP of its own isn't much of a problem, but I would like to know how to do so.
I have Astaro UTM running on an old computer as my only firewall right now. The Astaro also serves as my DHCP server. My Wifi is provided by a Linksys E3000 running DD-WRT software. NAT/SPI are disabled on the E3000, and it forwards DHCP requests to the Astaro. All my network clients connect via wifi/ethernet to the E3000.
All clients --> E3000 (no firewall) --> Astaro --> www
I am considering setting up my own personal cloud server using a Synology NAS that I can access remotely. I would also like to remotely access my Surveillance DVR. I would like to access them via VPN or portforwarding. I do not want to use DMZ.
I would like to utilize the SPI firewall on the E3000 to provide an extra layer of defense. I would like the NAS and the DVR to be on an external LAN between the Astaro and the E3000...and all other clients being on an internal LAN behind the E3000. I have the necessary switches/cables to make this work.
My question is...How do I configure the E3000? Can I have both the internal and external LANs on the same subnet? Do I have to use the NAT on the E3000? I'd rather not...since that will render the Astaro's reporting functions rather worthless.
I would like the Astaro to remain the only DHCP server. I would like all internal LAN clients to be able to reach out to the external LAN/WAN...but the external LAN should not be able to reach into the Internal.
I have got a 1TB external HDD...I want to use this to backup my data (dokuments , pics , video) that are on 2 desktops and one laptop---
AS I understand the terminology a I won't have enough room to do image backups (these back up all info incl OS ??) as on pc is usingb 677 gb and the other 400 gb ---- and anyway I can re-install windows if anything goes wrong...
SO---am I able to do this-
1. connect the ext- HDD to PC running win 7 64 bit....create a folder called "win 7 64 bit" and then drag and drop filesand folders into that folder(or use windows backup..which i am unfamilar with)
2. then connect to PC running Vista 64 bit ..create a f�lder called "Vista 64 bit" and do as above....
3. Do the same for the laptop running win 7 32 bit
Am I right in assumming that because it's just data I can put info from different OS on to it without and conflicts when connecting it to different Pc's?
I was upgrading the OS [c:] on a DELL Poweredge 840 server from Win2k3 server to Win2k8 R2 server using the Dell SMTD DVD to prep the install. This has always worked in the past without destroying the data partitions. (I have now found out this only works properly if the OS is on a RAID 1/0/10 and the data on a RAID 5)
In this case the OS & Data were both on RAID 5 & the Dell tool reformatted (quickly) or maybe reset the partition table so that it looks like one big drive. I noticed this once I got to the install screen for Windows 2008 R2 and shut down the system.
Are there any utilities that can be run from a bootable CD/DVD that can undo the format on the RAID 5 set or else let me browse & recover the data on the various partitions?
I am going back to college and I will need a router. Both my roommate and I were on the same router went over our bandwidth usage a number of times last year. I've done a bit of research and have come up with a few options: Asus rt-n56u, netgear wndr 4500, and the apple airport extreme. Both my desktop and laptop pc so I'm not sure if that effects the outcome. I am going to need a usb port for an ext hdd, which all of them have. All of the routers have a 5hz signal for better streaming. Would I be able to use the apple airport? It seems the have the best reviews. But I question the compatibility and some of the reviews due to possible fanboyism. Also, If I connect my desktop to the router via a crossover cable and have an ext hdd hooked into the router can I transfer files to the ext hdd and stream that data over a 5 hz signal?
I have a Linksys E3000 router set as Lan-Lan 192.168.0.2 hosting my internal LAN connected to a motorola Surfboard (Brighthouse) internet Wireless/Wired access point 192.168.0.1.I have a Web server hosting a site connected direct to the surfboard (works fine) . The FTP "site" on the E3000 can be seen by all pcs on the internal LAN. However, it can NOT be seen from the internet (Android with FTP client being used for test device)
Primary Access point 192.168.0.1 DCHP server with reserved IP addresses for server and PC's and smartphones Port Forwarding Set for Server at 0.004 : 80 Port Forwarding Set for E3000 at 0.002 :21
Secondary (E3000) router 192.168.0.2 DCHP server is disabled Port Forwarding is Not being used connected to primary router LAN port 1 by LAN port 1 on E3000
All pc's can access the Internet when connected to the E3000 via cable or wireless?All pc's can access the FTP server on E3000 via cable or wireless as a LAN location (connected to either router)?How can I get the FTP to be seen from the internet ?
I recently bought a Cisco e3000 router. I updated the firmware but I am still only getting 1.33 Mbps at most. The only things plugged into it is my PC and my xbox. I bought the router so i could get a better connection on my xbox so netflix wont stop playback.
I have an e3000 that cannot obtain an address from the ISP. I can get an address on the computer and an old router by directly connecting the cable to the computer or the router. I can also daisy-chain the e3000 to the old router, and I can get an address on the e3000 from the old router. I have hard reset the e3000, changed firmware from the Linksys to TomatoUSB and back to Linksys, and I still can't get it to work. It worked fine on Saturday until a bolt of lightning hit close to the house. Since then, I cannot get the e3000 to connect to the ISP.
I had a failed Tomato upgrade and now Connect Setup can't see router to revert back to original. I get message 82BD0101 or computer not connected to router. Also the http://192.168.1.1 trick won't work. Is there any way to restore besides 30/30/30?
It seems like after a certain amount of time, maybe a few days... my E3000 gets slowww.. I'm talking dog slow. And it's not just the internet, I have a media server connected to it, and usually when I put something on it, the transfer rate is about 3.5MB/s (not bits, bytes). But everything is slow, I top out at speed of maybe 1/6 normal on the internet as well.
We have a wireless internet service. Not satellite. We basically have an antenna on our house that picks up the signal from a tower a mile or two away. I used the e3000 router when we lived in town with broadband internet and it worked fine. I can't get it to keep a hold of a signal. I can connect to the router from the computers but the router drops the signal from the tower. I have an old router that the wireless company was kind enough to lend me that works , but the signal is weak and it could die at any moment... I"m at my wits end.. I have an expensive piece of equipment that wont hold the signal. I have updated the firmware and the Cisco connect software..
Has anyone tested QoS on the new E3000? Whenever I add an application (e.g. Voice Device) and set priority to Medium or High, my upstream bandwidth for everything else is immediately cut significantly, even when I'm not using the priority application.
For example, with QoS disabled, I can consistently get 10Mb upstream (speedtest.comcast.net). As soon as I enable QoS, upstream is capped to exactly 2Mb! On my old router, there was an option to set the total upstream bandwidth -- but on the E3000 there is no such option that I can find.
just bought an e3000 and want to use it with wireless internet- usb modem. when setting up it wouldnt go any further than the 'searching for connection' page as it couldnt detect a connection in the 'internet' lan (wan?) port.can i set it up to accept the wireless usb modem?
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've a WRT54GL still working well after 5 years of use. I've got one Ethernet cable attached PC (computer "A"), and two WI-FI attached, (computers "B" and "C"). They're all running Windows XP. I've heard much about how intelligent devices and intelligent systems can route the traffic in the most efficient manner, but not sure how or when it works. For example, if I sit at computer "B": and copy (or move) a file from computer C to computer A, what route does the data take? Does it pass through computer B?
