Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Guest Network Not Working

Jun 24, 2011

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Guest Network Via LAN?

Feb 21, 2013

I have the wireless guest network up and running just fine. But, I need to also connect to the router's quest network via one of the ethernet ports. Can I just give the LAN-conencted PC a 192.168.3.x static IP to access the guest network? I am assuming there is no VLAN functionality...
And even better, can I set up a DHCP relationship to that port? So that any device plugged into the port will get a IP on that subnet?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Guest Network Doesn't Work In Bridge Mode On E4200

Aug 9, 2011

We have three brand new E4200 routers, all using the most current firmware (1.0.02).   They are all in bridged mode, however when I attempt to enable the guest network on each of them, the config shows it as active, but it never shows up as visiible SSID.   In previous posts, I've seen people saying that I need to do a complete hard reset of the router and re-enter all the configs again to get the guest network active.   Is this true?  I'd hate to think that I have to hard reset and reconfigure all three of these APs, just to get the guest network enabled.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Guest Access Not Secure

Nov 13, 2011

Purchased E4200 this week 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 E4200 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).

Linksys Wireless Router :: Guest Access Is Not Remembered When E4200 Powercycle

Aug 12, 2011

I have changed from dlink to linksys because of good reviews in transfer speed. Nothing to complained about that yet, Wireless guest zone has more to wishes... Disable password req is one, why call it guest and show it as an unsecured network (I know it separated from my local network and doesn't have encryption)? This password req is a bum when visitors with smartphones and ipods came and visit! More irritable is that somehow connection settings for guest in devices are lost when e4200 powercycle and every visitor must reconfig their devices again

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Guest SSID Login Page Fails?

Jan 25, 2011


Netgear ProSafe Gigabit Router is my DHCP Server -- The entire home net work is on the same subnet (
Linksys E4200 configured as an access point ONLY -- wired connection -- static IP assigned -- DHCP server turned off
Linksys WRT610N configured as an access point ONLY  -- wired connection -- static IP assigned -- DHCP server turned off

3 -- 5 port gigabit switches
1 -- 8 port gigabit switch

No more than two switches between any two wired devices Both Linksys access points have the same SSID and WPA2 security phrase -- total of 4 radios Nonoverlapping channels are selected on both the 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz radio to minimize interference All computers are running Windows 7 Professional 64bit with all the latest updates Two iPhones and one iPad also access the network All LAN and WAN connectivity is working as designed? 


guest SSID is turned on

password is established 

All devices will connect to the guest SSID and the E4200 is assigning an ip address to the device in the range which is what it's supposed to do.When I open a web browser, I am not automatically redirected to the Cisco Login Page. If I enter as the URL, the login screen is presented. I enter the password I have created in the guest admin page on the wireless guest tab.  I then see a blank page and a URL of THIS IS WHERE I GET STUCK. THE ONLY WAY TO EVER SEE THE LOGIN PAGE AGAIN IS TO REBOOT THE E4200, otherwise you just get unable to connect messages when opening web browsers and the wireless status icon in the system tray shows a yellow exclamation mark.

I successfully connect to the guest SSID but I do not get access to the internet. When I type ipconfig, I see that the DNS is set to which does not exist on my network. I assume there's some internal NAT magic that is supposed to happen in the E4200 to bridge me over to my network but it doesn't seem to be happening.At the beginning of the call I specifically asked them if the E4200 must be the DHCP server in order for the guest SSID feature to work and they said no. 1.5 hours later they had no answers so they told me that it wasn't working because the E4200 was not the DHCP server. The documentation says nothing about a DHCP requirement for guest AP service. Linksys support further could not answer what you would do if you needed more than one AP with guest service enabled.It seems like this is a firmware issue but it may be the guest SSID service requires the E4200 to also act as the DHCP server. Whether this is a bug or if the router/AP is working as designed?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Guest Portal Displays As Not Being Password Protected

Jan 6, 2012

My E4200 settings show both the 5.8GHZ and 2.4GHZ channels to be active, with SSID's displayed. However, when I look for available networks via my laptop(s)/tablets, etc, only the 2.8GHZ channel is visible. I've tried changing various settings and even updated the firmware but nothing has changed.
In addition my "guest" portal displays as not being password protected, even though it is setup for password protection in the E4200 menu.I've rebooted  the router several times, but nothing has changed. The 5.8GHZ channel is not visible.The router is also performing frequent random disconnects, but that appears to be a separate issue, based on other posts.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wifi Guest Access Never Pops Up Browser

Dec 5, 2011

I have the wireless guest access set up in my E4200 flash to the latest firmware. When I connect to the wireless guest network it comes up under the 192.168.33.xx IP address. I can connect fine but it never pops up the browser so that you can type in the guest password. I'm running Windows 7 but I've also noticed the exact same problem under XP.The only thing I can guess is the problem is that I have this acting like an access point and all DHCP requests go to my router. I've basically turned off DHCP on this and plugged the network connection into the switch on the back.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Guest Access On E2500 Not Working

Nov 1, 2011

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.

Cisco Wireless :: Linksys E4200 Guest Account

Mar 19, 2012

We have a wireless router on our network and if the main router SSID is enabled we can connect to the internet, but am also connected to the network. I want to allow guests to use the wireless but not be able to see our network, I disabled the SSID broadcast and setup the Guest account and enabled the guest SSID broadcast. The note in the configuration says that guest will have to open a web browser and enter the password to use the internet. When connecting to the guest account nothing happens. I never see a login screen, nothing. I typed into the address bar and it did oopen a login page for the guest account but does not connect to the internet. The network viewer says it is connected but the webpage says limited or no connectivity.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Gigabit Ports Not Working?

Feb 17, 2011

I just upgraded to an E4200 from a D-Link DIR-655.  I cannot seem to get my desktop to connect to the E4200 at 1 GBS.  My adapter is set to "auto negotiate" but will only connect at 100 MBS.  If I try forcing the adapter setting to 1 GBS, it never connects.  I can swap out my E4200 with the DIR-655 and it will connect at 1 GBS just fine.  I am using a CAT 5E cable.  Is there something I'm missing here or is the E4200 just more finicky than the the DIR-655?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Quit Working After 5 Months

Jul 24, 2011

I have been using the E4200 router with few issues for the past 5 months. I have the latest firmware installed and have 1 pc running Windows 7, a sling box device and USB storage drive connected in the rear and 7 wireless devices.
 Over the past week, others in my household have been complaining of not being able to connect wireless. The other day, the connection quit for both wireless and wired connections. I thought it had something to do with my ISP (Comcast), and after I made a direct connect from my modem to my PC, the problem is the E4200. After unsuccessfully troubleshooting, I unplugged the router for a few hours.
Trying a few hours later, I was able to reconnect all connections. However, that lasted for a day and has not been able to connect. I did a reset and when going through the setup process, it says that it cannot connect to the internet. The only time I have any lights or activity on the internet port is when the router is booting up and then it goes off. The rest of the ports are working properly. Likewise, the link light on my modem shows no activity when connected to the E4200. The only connection I can make is to the browser utility.
I am now using another wireless router until I can get this resolved.
