Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 USB Printer Requires Cisco Connect Software?

Jul 28, 2011

I was excited to learn that USB printer support was added to the E4200. I'm disappointed to find that the USB printer option that is available in firmware version 1.0.02 requires Cisco Connect software. There is no version of Cisco Connect for Linux. I was hoping that this would allow the printer to be shared among my Win7 desktop, Win7 laptop, and my Linux desktop running Ubuntu 10.10. No such luck. WIth the printer connected to the router I can print with any one computer. My previous configuration had the printer connected to my WIn7 desktop so that desktop had to be turned-on to print. The bottom line is that I still can't print from the Linux box without turning on the desktop machine. Cisco please provide a way to connect to the printer without using the Connect software! Or provide a java version that can be run on any OS.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Connect E4200 To Brother MFC-J615W Printer

Apr 2, 2013

I have had the E4200 for a while with a Brother MFC-J615W printer.  I have been having problems keeping the connection between my laptop(HP) and the printer ever since I switched to this router.  The only thing that works is completely reinstalling the driver, and then it is touchy when searching the network for the printer.  The port and IP address for my printer match, and when I tried pinging my printer, I do not have any success.  My laptop registers the printer as offline, as does the router when I go into the devices on the router(via mylocalrouter).  To spot check the issue, I have switched the router back to my old one(Belkin) and the printer works flawlessly.  I have always been able to connect the printer to the network without any problems, but my laptop and router dont recognize it.

HP 1022NW Wireless Printer Will Not Connect To Cisco E4200 Router

Jun 13, 2011

I recently bought a new Windows 7 system and a Cisco E4200 router. Previously, I had an old Linksys WRT54GS router with an HP 1022NW connected to the network. The HP printer has worked flawlessly all these years and did not even hiccup when Windows 7 came into play. But as soon as I changed out my router, the trouble started. I cannot for the life of me get these two devices to connect.Is the HP1022NW even compatible with the E4200 router when using wireless connections? I know you are supposed to match the settings, but the encryption types are different For example, the default router settings are mixed WPA/WPA2. Previously I had WPA-PSK, which is not an option on this new router. I have followed every instruction I can find in manuals and online to get the wireless connection working, but it either fails the installation, or it latches onto my neighbor's wireless signal, which is not nearly as strong as mine. I believe he has his router set to WEP, which seems to point to the encryption question above. Short of connecting this as a hard wired printer, is there any chance I can get this to work? I have tried resetting it to factory conditions and even that does not work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Set Up USB Printer On E4200 In Linux?

Aug 9, 2012

I just got a new E4200 v2 wireless router.  I'm intrigued by the USB port, especially for using it to connect a printer.  I currently have a D-Link wireless print server that I'm using to create a network-attached printer, but if I could remove an extra device and just have the printer connected straight to the router

Linksys Wireless Router :: Connecting USB Printer To E4200?

Apr 11, 2011

I think I have worked out that you can`t currently connect a usb printer to the usb port on the e4200 in order to share it over the network. 
However I have heard reports that this might facility might be enabled in the spring.
I have also heard something about `virtual usb` but I don`t know whether this has anything to do with it.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3200 Or E4200 USB Printer Sharing Possible

Oct 10, 2011

Is it possible to share a usb printer over a network if I use the E3200 or E4200 router as an acces point?  (I already have a router and will use the cisco as an access point only) I checked the documentation for "cisco connect" as best I could but I couldn't figure it out.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 USB Printer Connection Not Working?

Jun 21, 2011

The latest Firmware for the E4200 states that there is now the ability to attach a printer to the USB port of the router. I am using a Mac, so that may be the problem,  but I have followed the instructions on how to add the printer and it is not happening. It's possible that the MAC Firmware was not given the ability to add a USB printer like the PC Firmware upgrade.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Guest Access To Printer?

However, it would be nice to provide the Guests access to the USB printer.   
Is there a way to provide access to the USB printer for those who are logged into the "Guest Network"?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 And Sharing A Printer On Subnet?

Apr 2, 2012

My issue is sharing a printer across my main Network and the wireless one, the description of the setting: I have my main Network (RV082) and I hooked the wireless router E4200 at an IP and the wireless network is I setup a printer/scanner with an IP for sharing on both Networks. Now everyone on network is able to access and print  but none on I did put a static route on the RV082 to direct the requests for the printer to be redirected to but no success.
The E4200 is setup by default out of the box I had just to set the static IP, Gateway and DNS and of course the wireless security key nothing else. the NAT is enabled on the E4200 and RIP is disabled, I tested the connection by disabling NAT and enabling RIP, at which I was able to connect to the printer but the Internet went down for All Wireless users ( network)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 V1 Lost Usb Printer Compatibility Overnight

Jan 19, 2013

I have been successfully printing to my HP 8250 printer USB connected to my e4200 router for nearly a year from my xp ethernet pc and 2 windows 7 wireless laptops.  Today nothing could print to it and when I deleted and tried to reinstall using cisco connect it tells me I am trying to connect an unsupported device both on ethernet XP PC and wireless windows 7 laptop.  I have installed no new software or drivers this year.  I have had to regress to attaching the printer back to the XP PC and sharing it which obviously means the PC now needs to be switched on to print.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Wireless Printer Won't Work?

May 8, 2012

I have a E4200 router and I was using it with a 1st generation MacBook Air for internet and also had my Samsung laser printer hooked up (USB) for wireless printing. It worked perfectly. Now I have upgraded to a new MacBook Air. The internet connection works fine, but printing won't work. Same printer. Same connections.

Do I need to refresh/reboot something? My new Mac has the printer driver. I get a message "printer if offline" "printer is not connected" -I feel like the router now does not recognize the new Mac's command to print.The older macbook air still works and prints wirelessly. The new one does not.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Cannot Print Via Hp Wireless Printer

Mar 17, 2011

I have an HP laser printer (network printer) plugged into one of the ethernet ports of the E4200.  I am able to print and communicate with the printer (via the built-in web interface) for the first few hours after the printer is powered on.  After a day or so, however, (when the printer has gone into sleep/power-save mode) I can no longer print or attach to it - it is seen as being offline.  The only way around this is to power the printer off and on again.I never had this problem with the E3000 or the (non-Cisco) router before that.  I do not see any settings that would cause this to happen.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Requires Regular Reboots?

Jul 25, 2012

So I have a WRT160N firmware v3.0 wired connection to my PC, and at least once a day my connection speed drops from 2mbs down to almost dial up speeds at 60kps. Just unplugging the router then plugging it back in seems to fix it every time.   I've contacted my service provider and they say there's no issue on their end, and since I don't get this problem when I plug the modem directly to the PC I agree with them.  I've done a factory reset and that didn't work.  I've gone through the FAQ and can't find anything useful in there.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V6 - ISP Requires PAP Or CHAP Authentication?

Sep 9, 2011

My ISP here at my mother's in Italy ( gave me the following configuration:
1. Supported Protocol: PPPoE or PPPoA

2. VPI: 8

3. VCI: 35

4. Encapsulation: LLC (If not supported: VCMUX/NULL)

5. Modulation: Multimode

6. Authentication Protocol: PAP or CHAP
if I connect my laptop to the ADSL modem, it all works just fine and I can connect to the internet (as you can see )
HOWEVER, if I then try to configure my WRT54G v6 to use this internet connection (I NEED to be wireless here, or I won't be able to use my iPhone and iPad), there is no way apparently for me to configure the Encapsulation, Modulation, and Authentication Protocol above. I just upgraded my WRT54G's firmware, and am now running firmware Ver.1.02.8, 10/05/2009. I was hoping this would allow me to set these parameters, but I can't find a way.
I tried just configuring the WRT54G with PPPoE and the ISP's userId/password, but this doesn't seem to suffice, and I don't see any other settings I could try.

Connect To A Router That Requires A Password?

Apr 6, 2012

I have a Cisco Valet wifi router that works fine with my laptop and my computer that has a usb wifi adapter. The problem is that for some reason when I try to connect my moms computer to the router it can only connect to the guest router and when I try to connect to the regular router it just fails even when I use the correct password. I have tried uninstalling the driver and re-installing it for the usb wifi adapter for my moms computer (NetGear N150 USB Adapter) and its nothing works. Her computer by the way is an Acer Windows XP SP3 machine.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Use Cisco Connect Or Web For New Set Up Of E4200?

Jul 26, 2011

1. I will be getting a e4200 on Thursday and was wondering if there is any advantage/disadvantage to using the Cisco Connect or just following instructions for manual setup using the web (I did it that way on my last router 6 years ago but was just following a script).?

2. Can I change things using the web after setting up using Cisco Connect or do I have to always use it:?

3. Finally after I set the router up can I just set up  other computers in the house as I do  now (just plug them in using wire or search for wireless and put  in password)?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 USB Printer Without Cisco Cloud Connect

Oct 20, 2012

I recently purchased a EA4500 for my home network. After hours of searching, I couldn't find any evidence to how I can install a USB printer without the obvious Cisco Cloud Connect. I don't need any software or account to access my router over the net nor any of the features CCC provides (at least as of yet). I'm quite comfortable with using the web interface and easily managed to adjust the router for everything I need except the printer part. I certainly have things to print so I have to connect my printer to the router as it is clearly mentioned on its box that I can access my printer through it. As a last resort I tried to install the software on the CD that came with it to get a link for some "Cisco VUSB" software which I think is the solution but it keeps saying my modem is not connected to the net. It clearly isn't because I don't have an internet connection at home. What I have is a 3G connection which I use for communicating and downloads I need. So why do I need an internet connection on the router for anything and how do I install my printer?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Installing Cisco Connect For E4200?

Jul 28, 2011

I just got a new E4200 router and downloaded Cisco Connect from the web site...file name CiscoConnect.E4200.1.4.11160.2.exe. When I try to run it, I find through Task Manager that Setup.exe is using about 35 to 40% CPU, but I'm never even getting to anything on the screen, nor is Task Manager even showing it as a running application. I'm running Windows XP SP3 (latest updates). I tuned off the AVG virus scan. But it still just seems to hang. BTW, I used the web interface to fully configure the router and it works fine so I could get by without Cisco Connect, but it might just be easier to use.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Powered On But Can't Connect

Feb 19, 2013

I've had this router for just over a year now so the warranty is out and it just so happened to stop functioning last night. I'm fairly decent in the router world since I am studying for my CCNA, so I have tried just about anything imaginable. I woke up this morning with no connection, checked the modem, then the router. The router was powered on, but the up/downstream lights were not doing a thing. The modem is not the issue (I am hardwired as of now). I have tried both resets, including unplugging the device, and still can't get a response out of it. The logo light will turn straight on (no fad in and out like it's suppose to) and then it does absolutely nothing.  I have never encountered this sort of problem on a home router before. I can't login to the router either.
