Linksys Wireless Router :: E3200 Lost Internet Connect Every A Couple Hours
Dec 4, 2012
I have a Linsys E3200 router for almost a year. It's been working fine until recently. It kept losing internet connection every a couple hours or even shorter. I have to power cycle the router in order to make it to work. However, sometimes that won't work either. I also tried to restore the router to the factory default but that doesn't seem to work.
I have updated the router with the latest firmware (1.04). I am using a cable connection and it never gives me any problem if I just connect my computer to it. I also test my network with another old netgear router that works just fine.
I have noticed that in my router log that the router opes a port automatically without any human interaction and after some the time router closes the port again.Here is the log file of my router that opens the port and close it after a couple of hours.

I have a problem with my wag120n and iphone or ipad or macbook.The connection works well for about 1-2 hours then stops.so with macbook i have to disable airport and connect to the network again with iPad or iPhone i have to turn-off and REturn-on the wifi.I have already changed the wireless channel but this didn't work form me.
I have an issue with my current network where every couple of hours I will lose my connectivity and it will not come back unless I do a power cycle on my router/modem. I originally thought the issue was with my router, however I'm beginning to think it's an issue involving the modem. I've tried two different routers and this happens on both. My main router is a D-Link WBR-1310 (crap I know but it was free) and has lasted for years, and my modem is a Toshiba PCX2500 from Time Warner Cable. The second router I used to test this was an older Linksys BEFW11S4. I was going to replace my router, but when I saw that both of them reset after a few hours (today was only 5, last night it was connected for over 8 hours as I slept). I ran an IPCONFIG /ALL when I was connected with internet and when I was connected without and the only three changes were: [code]
The problem I have was that last night I unplugged my router and replugged it back in. As soon as that happened, there was no connection between my router and the modem. This morning, I tested to see if it was the modem by connecting an ethernet cable from my desktop to it, and was able to get online. Then, II reset the router and a sucessful connection was made between the two. On my desktop my old network was gone, but the Cisco network was there, leading me to create a new network as if it was a new router. After setting up a new network, I am not able to connect to the internet.
I have purchased a new E3200 to replace my old Linksys router. It locates my computers and sets up a network, but cannot connect to the internet via my Comcast cable modem. I have read on this forum about Mac address issues, but it has located the Mac address. The internet IP address is all zeros, and releasing and renewing the IP does nothing
I have a Telus Wireless modem and got a linksys router to try and expand the range & strength of the wifi. However,whenever I plug in the router and try to set it up, I can get connected to the router but no internet connection.I have tried everything I can - restarted the modem and the router several times, connected and reconnected, rebooted the whole of the router system, connected with an ethernet cable straight to the router from my laptop. In the settings, I have tried to mess around with the settings and more, and whenever I screw up I reset the router to defaults again.

I justed purchased a Linksys E3200 router to replace my old router that gave up the ghost. I have it paired with a Motorola 2210-02 DSL modem. The software that came with the router has created two networks but is unable to connect to the internet. I have tried on both my PC and MacBook Pro and niether work. I have the modem connected directly to my Mac and can get to the internet, so I know the modem is working correctly.
I bought a Cisco-Linksys E3200 8 months ago and it worked well until last month. I usually power down the router after midnight & power up in the morning and evevry time it can connect to internet through DSL modem without problem until this Feb. Most of the time after powering up the router it just can't connect to internet anymore. I am sure the AT&T DSL modem is working. I have to reboot/reset the router & DSL modem several time to get router to connect to internet again. The order of resetting/rebooting DSL modem & E3200 router seems to make no difference. It just appears suddenly the router can connect to internet by chance. I changed router IP and it didn't work either. It's really annoying becuase I have to spend 10~40 minutes to resetting/rebooting DSL modem & router to get internet connection every day.
I want to use cisco connect with the Router E1200. There is a wireless connection between laptop and E1200 Router. When I run the "Cisco Connect" after couple minutes searching It can not find the Router and I have to put an (Router name SSID) and password.
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.
I've bought this router about seven months ago. I tried setting it up right when i got it but it didn't work. I ran out of time during my break and am now getting around to trying again. I've tried numerous resets and reboots, messed with most of the settings individually, but I never can connect to the internet through the router. The internet works with my old linksys router and directly connected to the computer, just not when connected to the router. I've tried calling up my internet provider, and the tech guy couldn't figure out what was wrong either. We have a DSL connection, and the MAC address of this computer is cloned into the router if that makes a difference.
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'm using a Linksys E3200 router with a Motorola modem and an elite xbox 360 with a wireless N networking adapter. (Black with two antennas.) I just recently bought this router because I wanted some faster gaming. I wanted to put my xbox on the 5ghz so it would have it all to itself, and have the two laptops share the 2.4ghz. But it won't let me onto the 5ghz band... I can see it on my xbox but it won't connect to it at all. I can get onto the 2.4 band but its at 802.11G, so its not even giving me N there, when it should be. I'm not sure if this is an issue with my adapter or router...I tried finding stuff about it, and it looked like people were blaming it on linksys, but that was almost a year ago. And there was never an update on what happened.I can see the 5Ghz band on my xbox (but only if the channel width is on 20Mhz only), but I can't find it on my computer. Which I find weird. I've been trying a lot of things and I just can't get my laptop to find it. So nothing is using the 5 band, and all my devices are crowded onto the 2.4...Is there some step in setting up the 5Ghz band that I'm missing maybe?
I just bought the E3200 and have it all set up and have been able to successfully print from the USB port. I want to know if you can use a USB hub to connect multiple devices to the router. I found a couple of similar questions on the forum, but they're all back in 2011 before the 1.4 update to Cisco Connect.
I bought the E3200 to replace an older Linksys model. The older model worked but the signal was weak throughout the house. I installed the e3200 using the Cisco connect software but it told me that it wasn't sure I was connected to the internet. I wasn't. Showed a strong signal but could not connect via wireless devices or from the cable from the router to the desktop.
I have LUS Fiber service which does not use a modem. I have had them recycle the signal several times and have done tried many different variations of the MAC numbers from ipconfig or from cloning. Have also tried it with the MAC cloning disabled so the router's MAC number is used. I have reset, rebooted and done just about every possible option.
Spoke with my provider many times and they insist they are sending me a signal. They also recognized the router's MAC number on their end.I purchased one router and it wouldn't connect, so I exchanged it. All these shenanigans I have gone through are with the second router because I figured the hardware isn't the problem.
I had Cisco Connect and USB printing off of the E3200 working, but now I'm getting an error and cannot print to HP Laserjet P1006 on my E3200's USB port. Cisco Connect has an error: Error code: 80004005 Model name: Linksys E3200 Model number: E3200 Serial number: Firmware version: 1.0.01 build 3 Operating system: Windows 7 Software version: 1.4.11145.0 Connection type (WAN): DHCP IP address (LAN): 192.168.0.253 IP address (WAN): 192.168.2.100 Computer IP address: 192.168.0.149
I just installed an E3200 to replace my old Linksys. All my Nooks, IPADs, laptops and desktops are connecting wirelessly fine. However, I have 2 Wi Fi Radios that will pick up the network but will not connect and go into a network connect time out. One of the radios also has a hardwired connection and that is working fine. I have checked and double checked the network name, WPA key, etc. Of course I have reset all the radios and reenter new data many times, both manually and auto.
I upgraded 3 days ago from a (WRT160N ver. 1) to a (E3200) After setting it up and syncing all the devices including the XBOX 360. After signing into Live I noticed that every time I power off and power on the console it's IP address would change causing the NAT to become moderate so I went over to the Xbox360 open the Network settings and Manually set the IP address Mac address, Gateway address. Then I opened the routers settings page and Port Forwarded the correct ranges also copied the IP address I manually entered earlier on the Xbox 360. On the router side I saved the changes restarted the console and my NAT was open, but here's the Issue now when I go to sign into Live I get a pop up saying I can't connect to Live to "Test the Connection". After I "Test the Connection" then and only then I can sign into Live.
I currently use a Linksys E3200 and mainly direct connect it to my laptop. My current ISP is with Insightbb to which I use their 20.0 (20 Mbps) service. For the past 6 or 7 months I've had little to no issues with my internet connection until about a week ago. While directly connected to the E3200 I used to get up to about 20/21 Mbps at a constant rate. Yet now I'm lucky to get up to 13/14 Mbps. Also, the speed will sometimes fluctuate; shooting to as low as 8 Mbps and shooting as high as15 Mbps. I can verify that my ISP is not the issue. I've directly connected my laptop to the modem with success and received a healthy speed of up to 23 Mbps with no fluctuations. The problem only occurs once I directly connect to the router. Attempting to connect wirelessly shows the same, if not worse, problems.
I've attempted numerous factory resets and used the 30:30:30 method to no avail. I've tried power cycling the modem, router and laptop. I've tried disconnecting the router for up to 10 minutes. I've upgraded the firmware to the most recent update. I've tried setting a static IP. I've tried imputing the MTU manually. I've tried setting a MAC address clone. I've tried turning on/off UPnP. I've tried release/renewing my IP address. I've tried flushing my DNS. All of which I power cycled the router after each and every attempt.
Is it possible to connect the E3200 Router to the internet over the wifi (WLAN) interface?Actually I can only use the ethernet port called "Internet" to connect with my Fritz Box router (which is responsible for my internet connection to my DSL provider).But I don't want to use 10m or more ethernet cable across my flat so it would be nice to use just wifi.
My new e3200 setup just fine with Cisco Connect. I have consistently good speeds with a direct ethernet connection, but the wireless speeds fluctuate widely. When I power cycle the router, I'll have perfect speeds for a few minutes and then it'll slow to a crawl (approx 0.5Mbps). Then for no apparent reason, it will speed back up to normal, and then back down to a crawl. I'm using the latest firmware and have allowed Cisco Connect to manage the router so far.This is actually my 2nd router, as Tech Support told me when I experienced this with the first router that it was defective, but I'm seeing the same problem with the 2nd router, so I know something isn't quite right.
I got 1Ggbit Internet. When i plug in PC i got 700+300+ on speedtest, if i plug in E3200 i got 9040. **bleep**?I play with all settings nothing works... In status he show 1 ggbit internet and 1 ggbit Ethernet but he gives less than 100 mbit....
We recently purchased a Linksys E3200 router, because our old router didn't take advantage of our internet speed. The router works fine, though the internet speeds again isn't as much as expected.
With a wired connection, we only get 80 Mbit/s of our full 120 Mbit/s, according to Speedtest.net. The Cisco Connect built-in speed test is even worse; only 40 Mbit/s. When we directly plug the computer into the modem, we get the full 120 Mbit/s, which indicates that the modem does have the connection speed. The router just doesn't give it to the computers attached.
I don't know about my wireless speed, as my wireless card in the laptop clearly is the bottleneck (it can only connect at 65 Mbit/s). Atheros AR9285 ftw.
We tried different cables, the one included with the router gives the same speed.
I have a problem with my E3200 that has happened at least 4 times since I first purchased, installed and configured it. Initially I thought it might be something with Comcast, but a) I never had the problem with my Linksys WRT54G router and b) It seems I can now duplicate the issue by saving a config file and restoring it.The specific issue appears to be somewhat random. At some point the connection to the Internet simply stops for no apparent reason. I am able to ping the router and connect to it. I am also able to drop and renew connections to the cable modem successfully. Furthermore, I can ping my network side of the router, as well as the external address handed to my router by the cable modem, and the cable modem gateway address, but still no connection to the Internet.The only solution to my problem has been to restore the factory defaults to the router and reconfigure it from scratch, which does seem to fix the issue for a time until it occurs again. FYI, I do not use the Cisco connect software because I have several custom port and QOS configs that are necessary for an IP Phone and other hardware on my network.
i am a total n00b when it comes to wireless routers etc,.. i bought this router [E3200] about six mths ago, it has been working just fine untill a couple days ago, wher i woud be on the internet and all of a sudden, the internet connection drops, i am using a cable modem [ARRIS TM722G] ,i did a reset on the e3200 and put restore the settings that did last over night
Ok, so I recently upgraded to a Linksys E3200. I am trying to get the QoS to work properly. I know that it is supposed to prioritize network traffic, so that if I have busy traffic but I am playing an online game, it should keep my gaming from stuttering while slowing other traffic down.
The problem is that every time I enable QoS everything slows down dramatically. I had a 200MB download that was going to take 5hrs with QoS enabled, that took 10min with QoS disabled. And with QoS enabled I can't even watch a youtube video without it pausing to buffer every 10 seconds. And that was the only PC/device using the network at the time. Again turning off the QoS WMM option solved the problem. I have noticed this problem with multiple routers and brands and usually just disable QoS as soon as I set up a router, however I heard that I won't get the full benefit of 300Mbps without QoS enabled.
I don't have any special Voice over IP needs, or video streaming etc. and I rarely am using multiple network devices at the same time. Is there really any reason I should enable QoS? Also I never really play with the settings for QoS, I just figure that since it comes enabled by default it should work for the average consumer.
