I finally decided to go with a e3200 yesterday and picked up one at Walmart. Last night I went to hook it up and had no luck setting it up. Now I have able Internet with a phone VoIP service. After trying to connect several ways, all the router wants to do is sit with a flashing power light. I cannot access the setup page wireless or wired and have tried several methods I found last night.
I have a WRT54G router that I have not used for many years, but now I need to use it again. I have connected it between my modem and PC, and I am able to get an internet connection on the PC, but I am unable to connect to the router's configuration page. I have tried resetting the router numerous times (holding the reset button 5 seconds, 10 seconds, even longer) to reset the IP address to the default 192.168.1.1 address, but still cannot access the page. The power LED is on and the WLAN and Internet LEDs are on, and the LED for the port my PC is connected to is on. The hardware version of the router is v3. I tried downloading the latest firmware, but without being anble to communicate with the router at the IP address I cannot update the firmware. How can I go about connectiong to the router's setup page? When using ipconfig, the Default Gateway appears to still point to my ISP's IP address instead of the router's.
I have updated the WRT160n firmware and, since then, I couldn't access the setup page anymore. I could still use the router as a switch, but couldn't access the setup page and configure it as a router.
I'm able to connect to the internet through my E1200 router but I cannot access the router set up page. 192.168.1.1 doesn't work... I can connect to it just fine with my laptop however... so I changed it to 192.168.254.1 as per some internet instructions. Still can't connect via my desktop... Tried ipconfig /flushdns to no avail. Cleared the internet cache Upgraded the firmware (via the laptop) rebooted the computer rebooted the router... reset the router... After rebooting the router I can type in the username and password to access the router, but it never connects....
I need to set up a password for my wireless network, but every time I try to access the setup page, the router stops responding. I've gotten as far as it asking for username and password, where I enter admin as the password....and then nothing. The connection times out. I really need to protect my network.
When I had DSL, my WRT54G was my DHCP master for my home network. When I got AT&T U-Verse, their "gateway" became the DHCP master and also the wireless access point. But the signal was not strong enough where I wanted to use it, so I hooked up the WRT54G again. I discovered that if I connected the U-Verse gateway to the "Internet" port on the WRT54G Linksys, then my home network was split in two, which I did not want. The WRT54G access point is physically somewhat distant from my wired computer, so I wanted to keep the U-Verse gateway as the DHCP master. (The U-Verse gateway is a router with four "computer" ports but no "Internet" port.)
I followed instructions on the Linksys web site, and using my wi-fi connected computer I re-programmed the WRT54G to be "Disabled" as a DHCP server. Then I powered down and physically connected the U-Verse gateway to a "Computer" port on the WRT54G. This solved my problem: my distant wi-fi computer now has a good signal, and both computers "see" each other.
However, now I seem to have lost access to the WRT54G setup "web page." Is it possible to access the innards of the WRT54G when its DHCP service is disabled? Or would I have to reset the device to factory configuration and start all over if I wanted to make any tweaks?
My internet is T1 by Verizon. My mom's company Siemens pays for our internet because she works from home as medical tech support on the phone. Okay so the T1 had to be laid out to our house underground I think because where we live, other brands of internet aren't available. The T1 goes from the box outside into our basement and hooks up to a Cisco 1721 modem. From the 1721 the internet goes out to a wireless router that is sitting right next to it. This wireless router is a Linksys WRT160N V2. We have several cables coming out of the WRT160N V2 to go to the first floor for hardwired connections, but one cable goes to the attic and connects to a second wireless router. The second wireless router is a Linksys E2000. We have several cables coming out of the E2000 that go to the 2nd floor to serve as hardwired connections.Okay so let me explain where things went wrong.
After a storm our power went out. Eventually the power came back on, but every now and then our internet would shut off for like half a day then turn right back on, so our internet was getting really really spotty. The [b]AL[/b] light on the Cisco 1721 would come on every time the internet went out. It was so bad that my mom had to get an aircard from verizon to get internet. So after two weeks of spotty service and arguing with verizon trying to get them to come fix the problem, they said try resetting your wireless routers because they might have "bad data" in the lines causing spotty connection. So we reset the wireless routers by holding down the reset buttons on the back. Well.. this reset all of the settings for the routers which Cisco facilitated set up, and now our wireless routers are out of warranty date so they can't set the wireless routers back up. However, we have copies of the online wireless router set up page, so we thought maybe we could just set them up ourselves.Well the problem is... We don't know how to connect to the wireless setup pages.. I read something on the internet about setting up wireless networks and to type 192.168.1.1 into our browser(Mozilla Firefox) and that would bring us to the wireless setup page. But the page does NOT ever come up.
Another way to find the IP address of our wireless routers would be to try going to the cmd and typing in ipconfig and using the Default Gateway IP address for the browser to connect to the setup page but that doesn't work out either.... Right now I unhooked the Linksys WRT160N V2 and hardlined the Cisco 1721 to the Linksys E2000 to a PC on the second floor because I figured it wouldn't work out if we had two wireless routers running at the same time. Currently the browser is taking me no where at all. It just says "Connecting..." but nothing is loading up at all.I tried hardlining from the Cisco 1721 to my mom's laptop, which is her work computer, and I got no response at all. I figured it might just be her work computer that was messing up and not allowing her to hardline into the 1721 so I tried hardlining the Cisco 1721 straight to the PC desktop on the second floor(we have no other laptops other than my mom's work laptop) and nothing went through. Then my dad says the Cisco 1721 has been configured so it doesn't direct connect, meaning that it has to go through a wireless router.
I have a Linksys E1000 wireless router, and I seem to have either written down the password incorrectly or am using the wrong one. Regardless, I can not access the web-based setup for the router. Is there anyway to reset the username and password for it?
I bought wrt54g2 several years ago and everything worked fine until this week. I got trouble with this router now.All the computers at my home couldn't access to this router even just connect to router's setup page at 192.168.1.1. The only way go to setup page through LAN Cable .I'm afraid maybe there's interference channel with my neighbor, then I did some change to router channel already, but the result same. I still couldn't access to the router through WIFI
Fyi, I did upgrade the firmware with the latest one and all the computers distance to the router not more then 5 m and in the clear area
I don't have to completely reset my router as I have a ton of configs on it. Anyway, recently for some reason, I lost all access to my admin page. Cisco Connect also cannot find the router. Funny thing is that all of my wireless profiles work just fine. Meaning all of the computers in my home connect to the internet just fine using the router. Both the guest access and WPA connected machines.[url]...
I recently tried to edit settings on my E3200 and was unable to get to the page. I typed in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, made sure no proxies were enabled and tried on wired and wireless computers and all the times it said "page could not be displayed" i haven't not reset with the button on the back. I also did an map scan of the router and this is what came up
Interesting ports on 192.168.1.1: Not shown: 65531 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 139/tcp open netbios-ssn 443/tcp open https 445/tcp open microsoft-ds 1780/tcp open unknown
I have an E3200 router. I had been experiencing connection problems with my desktop that was wired to the router, and in an attempt to resolve the issue reset the router to its factory defaults. Now, as before the reset, I can connect to my router just fine via Wi-Fi (I have several devices connected this way) but none of the computers that I attempt to connect via ethernet are able to establish a connection. I have tested multiple cables with multiple computers using multiple ports on the router, to no avail. When I view the Status --> Ports page on the router, I can see the ports in use that I am connected to, but that is the only sign of connection that I get.
Why my E3200 is (for lack of a better word) "throttling" my internet speeds.I'm signed up for my ISP's 50Mbps data plan. When I hook up my laptop directly to the cable modem (via LAN cable), I see close to 50Mbps as the internet speed (measure via speedtest.net). When I hook up my router to the cable modem, and connect via LAN cable to the router, the internet speed comes down to around a maximum of 26Mbps. NOTE, that I am still talking about a wired connection and not a wireless access. Speed tests with the wireless access do yield the same results as well. To rule out the obvious, I've confirmed that there aren't any other devices on the network and no other bandwidth hogging applications running while I performed these tests.
I have a E3200 Router and when the computers are connected directly to router (Wired) the speed is SLOW and when computers are connected via wireless the speed is fast (normal). What can i do to have the wired computer with same fast speed as wireless?....i'm i missing something?Here are the speed results:
All wired computers connections (total of 4) downwload speed ranging from 8 Mbps to 13 Mbps.
All wireless computer connections download speed stable at 49 Mbps.
How do I setup a E3200 router using a wireless USB modem to connect to the internet? This is my only choice, I do not have a wired connection and I do not own the telephone wires and there is no permission to do otherwise.
I'm going to lay out my equipment and how Id like to set it up. Im hoping to get some feedback on specific settings for my equipment as I am rather clueless. How I'd like to have everything running:internet through the gateway (obviously)E3200 setup as wireless router with HD and TV connected.NAS on E3200 for backups and dropping files on to watch on TV both laptops login manually to VPN service.I was previously able to create a symbolic link in windows for dropping files onto NAS easily enough. I wasn't able to see the HD on the TV using it's MediaShare function. That was one of the main reasons why I got the E3200 with USB port.Also, when I connected the TV to the E3200 after setting up my previous RG with E3200 I couldn't get internet signal. With the DLNA function of the TV I'm thinking it might be a situation where I have to access the symbolic folder on my computer in order to access the NAS. This would probably be a painfully slow nightmare but the only solution I can think of.
I recently had to replace my WRT54G and I decided on the E3200. I am satisfied with everything except the ability to RDP within my LAN between the wireless and wired computers. My setup is my primary PC is wired to my E3200 and a secondary PC and my laptop are using the wireless connection. Both of my wireless PC's are older and are utilizing the b/g connection. I have disabled the n connection for now. I also have two iPhones utilizing the wireless b/g connection.
I can RDP any computer from my primary(wired) PC. But when I try to RDP my primary PC from my wireless PC's(mostly my laptop) I can not get access. The error states "RDP can find the computer this means the computer may not belong to the network."
Finally, I was able to RDP seamlessly between the wireless and wired PC's with my old WRT54G without any problems at all.
In the next month or so I plan to replace my old desktop PC. It is currently connected to a Linsys E3200 wireless router. I have many other wireless devices also running off the E3200, but my PC is the only wired device connected to it. When I replace the wired PC do I simply switch the new one in with the existing ethernet connection (I'm sure it is not that simple) or do I have to start over again recreating my entire network..security etc.. ? If so what is the process to start over ? Do I have to reset something on the router, reload cisco connect, create a new network name?
I have a BEFSR41 V2 working as dial in ADSL connection.While I changed my settings of the UPnP in the router I lost access to the admin page. Well most strange is that everything is working.I kept my internet access as well as the computer and printer access.The only thing I lost is access to the router admin page.The password it was not defaulted to admin, neither kept the password that I had set up.
I can't connect to my setup page [url]... I get to the page that says..."There is a problem with this website's security certificate." Then I click the "continue to this website (not recommended). After this it will not connect
Tried with IE9 and Firefox 11
Firefox says "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."
Internet still works. PC is connected directly to router. Tried different port on router. Tried installing CiscoConnect.E2500.1.4.11299.0,0, but it fails saying there is no router connected to PC. Like I said I am on the PC now, wired to router and have internet access via cable modem connected to router. I can see my ireless printer on the network also..
I'm trying to login to my EA4500 setup page. I have the "cloud connect" firmware and when I'm redirected to the "Linksys Smart Wi-Fi" page in my browser, I attempt to login as usual.It accepts my login name and password, and then I get a page that has a rotating graphic and it says "waiting..." It eventualy times out and takes me back to the login screen. I've tried to reboot my router and that doesn't work. I've also disconnected the internet connection from the modem, and entered the router main password, and that gives me the same response as if I tried to connect via the cloud.
I just installed new E4200V2. After completing software install, everything appears to be working fine, except that I can't get to the advanced setup page, either through Cisco connect software or from the web page utility. Either way, the advanced settings web page never finishes loading. I am using the correct login information for the web page utility. It accepts the username "admin" and password, but never loads. Browser just sits there. Browser status bar says "waiting for http://192.168.1.1.
if it is possible to access a modem setup page with a E4200 router? My router is on 192.168.254.200 and modem(WAG-200G) is on 192.168.254.100, ethernet cable is on internet port on the e4200 and on port1 on the modem. Modem is set is bridge and I set up a ppoe and dhcp on router. Everything is ok, except that i can not access modem setup page to see adsl conection speed and settings.
I have been trying to change my password and all the settings on my WRT54G V8 router today because I forgot the password, and I can't seem to navigate the Basic Setup page. I can log in (most of the time) after resetting the router, but whenever I try to click on a different tab (like "Wireless", or "Security") it comes up with the page saying "This Page Cannot Be Displayed." I'd like to be able to put a password on it (which I have successfully done before on this router) because I live in a college dorm and would like to keep my internet from being bogged down by other people using it.
I have Verizon FIOS internet/wireless router and then a WRT310N wireless router connected to it thru Ethernet cable. I want to disable DHCP in the Linksys, but when I try to access the set up page at address 192.168.1.1 the Verizon router set up page shows up. I've tried to connect the router directly to the computer, but it needs the internet connection from the Verizon router. How do I get to the set up of the Linksys at the same time the Verizon is using the same address?
I was having problems with the speed being between 30-58 kpbs when going through the WRT160N router, whether its hooked up wired or wireless, the speed with both was extremely slow and wouldnt fully open pager or would take dsl day slow. I hooked up straight to modem and I got 100+ kpbs so I figured its not my ISP, so I read that upgrading my firmware might make it faster, so I upgraded and hit and held the reset button for 30 secs like it recommended but now the 192.168.1.1 wont open, I get a message saying it cant open this page
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).
We're trying to connect our Linksys E3200 via ethernet wire to an existing company network that already has a router and switch - it will simply be connected to a port on our switch, and needs to function as an access point only (no DHCP, no routing, no NAT, etc.).
