Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - How To Isolate Networks
Aug 16, 2012
We have an E4200, currently with wireless disabled, on a Windows 2003 based domain. We have a Static IP from our ISP.We want to install some wireless & wired security cameras (IP-based) so that we can view them from our iphones or droids outside the network. The software for these cameras will reside on a computer that is not currently on the network, but needs to use the same Internet connection as the current domain. We basically want to separate these cameras & computer from the current network, use same Internet connection (& Static IP), and enable wireless on the E4200 for the cameras only.
Our church has two internet connections, one that the internal network accesses and one that the wireless network in the building accesses. For (obvious) security reason we need to keep the networks isolated from eachother. On sunday's when we upload the sunday sermon video recording we caused a network lag for other computers on the network, thus the church has asked us to use the wireless network to upload the videos. We record the video on one computer, then can transfer it to a Mac that has 2 network cards.
How do we isolate the two networks from eachother without plugging and unplugging cables and have the Mac upload through the wireless network instead of the wired network?
I assume that the E4200 uses VLANs for the the guest network. Is it possible to trunk the LAN interface and pass that vlan to the switch so that you can pass the vlan to an AP?Would be great to see the Guest wireless on the Cisco 1250 like I do the main SSID.
i have 3 netgear dg834g wireless routers. router1 has the adsl connection, router2 and router3 are connected to the ethernet ports of router1. All the wired computers are for the office desktops and the epos terminals on the restaurant floor.
we'd like to give wireless access to our customers but we don't want them to be able to access our epos terminals, could subnetting be used to make this work or would i require additional hardware?
I have a Cisco 1841 router with the followingSerial T1 connection Fastethernet 1 with network address 192.168.0.1 Fastethernet 2 with network address 22.214.171.124I want to isolate Fastethernet 2 so that it cannot access the internet or the 192.168.0.1 network. Only incoming request is available.
We are running our internal network on the 192.168.1.x range.
We have just installed a new control system which is running on a closed 192.168.0.x network (no internet access).
What we need to do is use the WRT54G to connect the 2 networks together so that we can VNC into one of the computers on the control system network so that it can be managed.
I have tried connecting the two networks by plugging the 192.168.0.x network into the WAN/Internet Port on the WRT54G, and setting the "Internet Connection Type" to "Static IP" and setting the "Internet IP Address :" as 192.168.1.200 (the main PC I need to VNC into) but cannot ping any of the other computers..
I've gone through a couple modems, only possible reason I can think this is happening, but I don't know for sure if it could be a factor. Anyway, it seems my router is running two... networks? I've reset my router, set up my wireless network, configure the SSID name, password lock it, but there still appears to be a "Linksys" network running with no password. I'm afraid it's being used by someone else, seeing as it's free wifi. I've reset my router a couple times and set up my wifi and this linksys still appears to be running. The reason why I feel it's mine is because one night our net went out and when my brother attempted to log onto the linksys, its net wasn't working either. When our net came back up, the linksys was running with working net once more. It seems like too much coincidence to not be true. I'm really not sure what is causing this and I've never experienced this before.
I am having a setup problem with the RE1000. When I plug it in, my laptop is able to see it, and I'm able to access it and attempt to set it up. However, once I tell it how to connect to my main wireless router, and it attempts to log onto my wireless network, the RE1000 disappears from my list of networks. My blu-ray player also cannot see it.
I have a home office with a network served by a Linksys BEFSR41 wired router. It includes a laptop and HP printer.. This router also connects to my cable modem for internet access. I also have a second wireless linksys E1000 router hardwired to the home office router. It serves my wifes's laptop in the kitchen and also a ROKU in the den. I tried using the wireless router for the whole house, but the signal was too weak and unreliable. With the current layout, I get a strong signal thoughout the house and my home office uses the wired router.. My problem is that I can't access the printer in my home office.
A query here with regards to Wireless isolation between SSID and wireless isolation within SSID.If we have 2 SSID, eg. InternalSSID, GuestSSID on AP1.Both SSID are set to Enabled for isolation between SSID, and within SSID, that would mean all machines connected thro' this AP1, would be isolated from one another.
1) If there's 1 laptop that connects to another AP, lets call it AP2, (doesn't have isolation function) on ssid01. Would this laptop still be isolated from those that connects to the first AP?
2) If there are wired PCs connected to the router. And the 2 APs are connected to the same router. Would the machines connected thro' the AP1 on either InternalSSID, GuestSSID be able to access those wired PCs? (My assumption is yes.)
3) Is there a quick and efficient way to setup on WRVS4400N to isolate GuestSSID totally from InternalSSID, and wired PCs. InternalSSID and wired PCs should be allowed to 'see' one another.
The challenge here is that, the network points are all installed already. Both AP are connecting thro' 2 separate unmanaged switch together with a couple of other PCs. 1 Port on the unmanaged switch, each,connects to the router.
I have a need to have 2 seperate networks from my comcast cable modem.I was hoping to plug a 5 port hub into the cable modem and then plug both the wrt610n and the wrt54g into the hub. Seem that only one of the routers will get an ip assigned from Comcast.Is there a way to have one ISP cable modem and create two different home networks with the two linksys routers, thus two separate independent networks?
-Network 1: public household use and family (Jane's wireless laptop, household PC's etc).
-Network 2: private household/company use and separate from the public family network (company wireless laptop/company PC, un-secure media server).
Using a Linksys E2000 and Linksys WRT54GL (both flashed to most recent firmware), I am trying to set up Network "A" and Network "B" on one modem. I do not want either A or B to be able to see each other for security purposes. Both are secured networks for the wireless connections and have different SSIDs.
After online research, and the inability to find my exact question answered, this is what I did and I'd like to know if I'm missing anything to keep A and B completely separate. Or, if I've done anything that will cause any problems on my network. [code]
I disabled the ability to change settings using wireless connection on both routers.
I just bought a WRT54GL which is working perfectly. I needed it to extend my home network for my kids (I have not a very fast internet connection and my kids are eating all of it... With the WRT54GL I can choose how much they can have. So my own network has a netgear modem and a netgear wifi access point which is in this network : 192.168.0.x.
This network is not blocked in any way (just password protected). For my kids network, the WRT54GL gives addresses in this network : 192.168.1.x and is limited in speed. Everything is perfect, I have internet connection on both of my network, There is just the problem that I cannot access my printers, my servers, my computers.... that are on the 192.168.0.x network from 192.168.1.x. Is there a solution ? I already tried to force the WRT54GL to go to 192.168.0.x network but no more connection. Should I "bridge" the two networks ? How can I do it ?
Having just installed the E1000 why have I got a public network address '####' which is security type WPA2 -PSK and also public network address '#### - Guest' which is security type - unsecured.Anyone can log onto either wireless network connection but only with the correct password.How do I remove the '####' address and also how do I make the '#### - Guest' address a secure one.
Is there any way to make networks hidden through the WiFi Smart software? I have a Cisco Linksys E4200V2. I have gone through everything to try figure out how to make my S.S.I.D. to not be broadcasted, but seems like the only way to make it hidden is to use the Origonal Firmware make it as hidden, then install the New Firmware and software. Seems like Cisco may have missed this option. I do know a lot of people would prefer their Networks hidden for a little security. I know it isn't much, cause if someone wants to get that info it's not hard to get it. But for people who don't know or don't want to waste all the time to find the Hidden Network name can be turned away, for going through that extra step.
I have a recurring issue with my e4200v1. My wired and wireless connections work fine, but I can't get to the administration website. I have https only set up, and after I get thru the 'certificate error' screen, I get an error that says web page is unavailable. Firfefox tells me that the connection was lost - error 101.I have tried wired and wireless, multiple computers, multiple browsers. I even turned the firewall off on one computer (or I think I did anyway).The only way I know how to fix it is by completely resetting then setting up the router all over again.
Upgraded from WRT610N to E4200. Since upgrading to latest firmware the wan just disappears both 5 and 2.5 Ghz bands. Happened with older firmware but not as often. Using it in briged mode. When this happens I can't even get to the management page with a lan connected pc. Have to do a hard reboot to get it to respond again. This is unacceptable for a router at this price point.
I have a 6 month old Cisco e-4200 router that is updated to the latest firmware, connected to a Motorola surfboard modem on Sudden-link in Midland, TX.
I previously used this exact same setup on Cox Cable in Wichita, KS with no problems. Upon setting it up down here I cannot get the router to pickup an IP address. I have Power-cycled everything multiple times, did a complete reset and re-installation of the router software and still no luck. The Sudden-link techs have no idea what is wrong. They said that the modems signal is strong and everything should be working.
Actually I did get it to work once for a couple of days, however when redoing the surround sound system I had to unhook the cable line and it quit working and I haven't gotten it to work again since. I have tried unhooking everything. Turning it all off. Waiting for 5+minutes, and then reconnecting in order: First the modem, then an ethernet cable to the computer which will usually work. But as soon as I unplug the cable from the computer and plug it into the router it stops working.
I bought Linksys E4200, at a time that is the TOP of the line Cisco routers for Home use.I noticed a serious usage issue with it, I could not identify which are the wifi devices connected to choose for access restriction or parental controls, as the dialog box state only as "Network device", and software control by Linksys does not have any provision to use MAC ID or any other option "except " looking at the dialog box as "Network device".
Trying to update it to the new smart Wifi but getting this error "Incorrect Image File".Yes Ive tried redownloading yes ive tried different browers and yes to unziping the file! and Yes Im downloading the correct version I even tried version 1 for the heck of it and still nothing.
I just received by replacement e4200 v1. I updated the firmware to 1.0.03 build 14 and am up and running just fine. The specs say e4200 should be 300+450Mbps. I am using a software "inSSider 2.0" to view my wireless setup. I get 144(N) at 2.4GHz and 450(N) at 5.2GHz. Please note these are max bit rates and not connect speed or throughput rate. The "inSSider" software gives me the following:
I get this information by hovering on the max bit rate field on the row displaying my SSID. So is it correct to say that my e4200 is not designed to reach 300Mbps at 2.4GHz. There is an earlier discussion thread about connection maxing out 144. Please note I am not talking about connect speed or thru-put speed. Max design bit rates of dual band router labeled e4200.
Just got a e4200. However I also have a cisco av power line adapter which worked fine. However when connecting to the 4200 it doesn't recognize the Internet. Have rebooted, reset switched ports etc. But it still doesn't work. It sees the network but not the Internet. Have tried everything ikon but no luck. Cannot connect my directive to the Internet. If I can't get it to work will have to run a 50 foot cable.
Firmware 1.0.00 on my E4200 Hardware v1.0 provided a functioning 6to4 tunnel through Comcast's 6to4 facility. Windows and Linux clients on my local network discovered IPv6 addresses and were able to use them successfully.Unfortunately, after the upgrade to 1.0.03 this functionality was gone. I missed reading the ChangeLog, which said that the automatic tunneling feature was removed in 1.0.01. The now provided IPv6 functionality works much less well. First, automatic configuration (discovery of the 6to4 via IPv4 anycast) no longer works with Comcast's gateway. If I configure the tunnel manually, by specifying a 2002/16 prefix, I regain IPv6 connectivity, but only for Linux clients on my local network.
Windows 7 clients suffer from the problem that because the E4200 hands out ULA addresses, they end up preferring those ULA addresses when making global IPv6 connections in the IP 'source' field, which of course does not work. It's like putting your company mailbox code as the return address on a letter you send via US Mail. Other home routers, such as the AVM Fritz! (url,...) suffer from the same problem. However, they provide an option to turn off ULA at the router.Is it possible to turn off ULA for the E4200?
I have a E4200 router v.01 and when i updated the latest firmware (due to security exploit) it seems that whenever i acess the router settings (192.168.1.1) it doesn't ask me nor to input the admin and the password anymore, using wifi or wired.. I want the usual proccess whenever i go to 192.168.1.1 it will ask me to input my admin and password to change my router settings..
I have an E4200 and the Cisco VPN client on my home computer that I use to access a work network. The VPN client cannot connect unless I either (a) bypass the E4200 and connect directly to my cable modem or (b) disable the SPI Firewalls on the router. I have all the VPN passthroughs set to "enable" on the router, but still cannot connect. The VPN client is using IPSEC over TCP on port 10000.
I've been trying to get FTP Running up on my router for some time now.
I know my current WAN address and have setup a specified folder on my E4200 for the FTP partition. A username for myself has been created with login info and I have forwarded the port I have specified on my router's FTP configuration page.
I try to log into the server, but whenever I try to log into it, I keep getting a "incorrect login information" message back at me.
If I cancel out of that then I get an error message saying it can't find the specified folder and to check the address of the server.
I know the login information information is correct and I've tried changing the password to others of varying lengths.
I've also tried changing the port I'm running the FTP off of incase my ISP has blocked that port, nothing works.
I have a 6 year old wrt54g that is working fine but old. I want to upgrade and will go with the 3200 or 4200. I really don't need the extra features on the 4200 since everything I have is hardwired (directly to two laptops and to two switches in other parts of the house for tv and printer). I want wireless for times when we move a laptop but it wouldn't be all the time, and we won't (for now) use the media options. The difference in price between the 3200 and 4200 is less than $25 so costs is NOT a factor in deciding.So should I just purchase the 4200 since price is not a factor or go with 3200; I want the most stable of the two and will never need the extra wireless features in the 4200.
I bought a Linksy E4200 yesterday and set it up fine, but I only seem to be able to get 130 Mbps on my Wi-Fi. I looked through these threads and tried disabling the 2.4Ghz band and it still remains at 130Mbps. There was no change, also read I can try set up a secondary SSID. I really don't know much about routers or configuring them
I have a Drobo and am connecting it via the USB port. The Admin Gui is detecting it but only showing 2048.GB capacity its bigger than this is this a limitation? I cannot connect to it via wireless connection/ ie via network. I have also updated firmware to 1.0.03
My dad recently got a E4200 router, My whole family are mac users, the connection are all okay with their computers, I'm the only one using Microsoft, ASUS running on Vista. The connection is fine when I'm near the router, but when I go to my room I get no connection at all, it connects for a second but then it goes on connection with limited access.
I'm using Linksys E4200 router. I can't seem to ping the static WAN IP (from internally or externally). All other connectivity seems to be fine. I can ping the routers internal IP, as well as the cable modem and other external IPs. But all port forwarding through the E4200 is failing.Should the default security/firewall setting allow port forwarding? Or do some settings need to change?
I have been set out to pasture by the Linksys support staff as I have passed my 90 free tech asstistance period. I had a power outage and now I have a solid Cisco light on the top of the router but I can not get any port light activity on the router. I don't see how I can reconfigure it if the system can not even access it?
I will be staying at a rental property that has ethernet cable & modem. If I bring my E4200 v2 router from home & connect it to their modem, will my Toshiba 16GB Thrive be able to access the internet via WiFi? When I initially set up the router, I ran the router CD on my laptop, and the Thrive automatically accessed the internet. Will the Thrive automatically do the same when I connect the router at the new location. There is no computer there to run the router software. Will the the network be secured as it is at home? Same network name & password?
I just connected my new E4200 router, it worked fine until it recommended updating, as soon as it connected to do this, the power light started blinking every second and it will no longer respond. Support has not facilitate.
I have a E4200 V1 with 1G internet connection, when i connect my PC, with a cat6 cable, directly to the modem the download speed can upto 800Mbs, but when i connect through E4200 to the modem it down to 100Mbs.
I saw that E6500 has a new firmware that supports 3TB USB HDD [URL] When will E4200v2 get this fix? I'm using a WD MyBook Essential 3TB with NTFS, which is on the compatible list [URL]. But the router only sees 746.486GB.I tried the latest firmware 126.96.36.199204(Smart WiFi) and 188.8.131.52047(Classic). Neither of them recognize the 3TB HDD.
