Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 As Access Point / Bridge Mode?

Sep 6, 2011

I have spent most of the weekend trying to get this router to act as a proper Access Point.
When it does work (Stay connected) speeds and latency are rotten. If I go back to Routing Mode this thing kicks butt, but I isolate all devices attached to a different subnet and trying to set up proper routes has proved imposable. Firmware 1.0.2 r 13
The online help stated to connect to the "internet interface" when in Bridge Mode DHCP Server Is not broadcasting to on the wireless or wired interfaces.
If I used the wired interface as the uplink I can broadcast the DHCP to any device on wired but again nothing to the Wireless. When I "Show Routing Table" I see two static routes pointing to the ATT router for the Wired/Wireless Interfaces.. (my Gateway) Wired/Wireless (my Gateway) 0.0.0. Wired/Wireless
AP mode should only be working in Broadcast. By connecting the Wired Interfaces alone up to my switched network should not use the router at all. If you force all traffic to my router all traffic has to be inspected by the firewall You create a bottleneck my router interface is 10/100.
ATT 2 Wire Gateway/Router with pinholes. 10/100/1000 Non managed 24 port Switch Network. Server infrastructure serving DNS/DHCP.
I decided to buy this after reading it offered Bridge/Access Point mode instead of getting the WAP610 because I wanted to have the option to change to routing mode or AP mode. Since my ATT Uverse Router Wireless is “g” it takes forever to transfer files to and from my servers.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 - IP Ranges As Access Point / Bridge Mode

Mar 18, 2013

I have a Cisco 880 (supplied by my company and as such I have little access to the control panel). I have a Linksys (Cisco) E1200 to use as an access point. Cisco setup (love it!) but the simple setup gives the E1200 an ip range starting at while the Cisco 880 range is I need to have all connections in the same ip rage ( for remote monitoring. What is the best way to accomplish this? Bridge mode (I don't need Guest Mode which I read is not possible in bridge mode)? Disable DHCP on the E1200?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using E4200 In Bridge Mode?

May 1, 2012

I have a E4200 with 1.0.04 firmware that I've used for a while as a router in front of a cable modem. I have upgraded the modem to a Virgin Media SuperHub. I have connected my E4200's WAN port to one of the SuperHub's LAN ports and changed the E4200's mode to Bridged Mode.I can connect to the Internet wirelessly and wired on the SuperHub, but I can only connect to the Internet via the E4200 if I'm wired to it. The wireless will connect to the E4200, it gets allocated and IP address in the correct range and the gateway is shown as the SuperHub's IP address, and I can see the E4200's management website via wireless, but I cannot connect to anything beyond the E4200.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Possible To Put It Into Bridge Mode

Sep 26, 2011

As I understand, the latest FW for the E4200 makes it possible to put he router into bridge mode. In this mode, I can use it as an access point. In bridge mode, should I then connect my router to the WAN port at the E4200?The other way to make the E4200 into an AP, is to disable DHCP and NAT and give the E4200 an IP address out of range for the DHCP range in my preferred router.

Choosing between this two option to make the E4200 into an AP, which is considered to be the best solution?And to be sure; using this option, then the Ethernet cable should be connected to the LAN port of the E4200? is the performance of an E4200 in AP mode the same as a dedicated AP like the WAP610N?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 In Bridge Mode

Aug 20, 2011

Just bought 2 e4200's!  I have the first one connected to the ATT router, and I have the second one connected to the first in Bridge Mode.  It works great! It knew how to configure itself to be the down-level client.
However, I noticed that the port speed is only 100 Mbps on the port that is acting as the link for the bridge.  I am running brand-new CAT5e thru the house, and if I connect the cable directly to my laptop - I get 1Gbps. So I know that the cable is good.
Is there a way to change the speed of the INET port on the down-level e4200?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Works In Bridge Mode Only

Nov 5, 2012

Restarting the e4200 did not work.  Resetting using the switch at the back did not resolve the issue.  I was able to reset it via the web page.  After restoring my settings from backup, the issue remained the same.  This was not alleviated after I updated the firmware.  Plugging into one of the ports with a cat5 cable with my Mac, I was able to get an IP, yet I was not able to surf; same case with my MacBook.
Doing the 30-30-30 reboot did not fix this issue and all the while the front white light on the router went and stayed, solid.To see if I could get this to do ANY sort of meaningful internetting (is that even a word?) I put the e4200 in bridge mode and when I put the cable modem in, and all that plugs into this router works.  This, of course, means that there is:
1. No Wifi signal and

2. It will not reset to factory settings.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Locks Up In Bridge Mode?

Feb 7, 2012

I'm using the E4200 in Bridge mode and it's handing out IPs from our DHCP server (not acting as it's own).  I have about 8 people connecting to this wirelessly to get to our network.  For some reason it locked up once every week or two and I have to unplug it (can't even remote into it).

Linksys Wireless Router :: Use Multiple E4200 In Bridge Mode?

Aug 10, 2011

I have four E4200 units on my network, each with an unique IP address, in bridge mode to act as a wireless mesh across my entire building.   They are all connected to my central L3 switch, via their Internet ports.
Is it possible to enable the Guest network on each unit, to create a 'Guest Wifi' mesh (providing that I allow the network to route across my network fabric), or will this not work because each indivudual AP will be assigning IP address as it's gateway address meaning that I would have four distinct MAC addresses within the network, each trying to claim that they are IP

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Limitations In Bridge Mode

Jan 3, 2012

I have a Fiber to Ethernet connector from my ISP. The Ethernet cable goes to an iSP issued Zyxel router. Into this router the landline phoneservice connects to give us VoIP landline service (which is cheaper). An Ethernet cable goes from the Internet port on the E4200 to a LAN port on the Zyxel router. That works great but I had to put the E4200 into Bridge Mode to get it to connect to the Internet via the Zyxel router which I need to use the phone services my ISP provides. I bought the E4200 because I wanted to use the dualband functionally and get a 802.11N 5GHz network setup and to give me the ability to block certian websites and services which I knew Cisco/Linksys is famous for - the abillity to control your network. 
Well then imagine my surprise when I could not use the Parental Control settings when the router is in Bridge Mode... This was the reason I bought this router over an Apple Airport Exreme. Is there anyway to get it to let me use the Parental Control anyway while in Bridge Mode or a better way for me to connect the router with the rest of my network?

Linksys Access Point :: Use Two WAP54G APs In Bridge Mode To File Share?

Aug 16, 2011

Can I use two WAP54G APs in bridge mode to file share. I'm not interested in sharing internet. Just need to share files between two desktops. Would this work if I set a static IP on the two computers or do I need to have a router in the network as well?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Running In Bridge Mode /Automatic DHCP?

Dec 9, 2012

I am trying to determine the best way to setup my E4200 V2 so that it is “uplinked” correctly to a Comcast Dory Modem/router.  Currently we have the E4200 V2 router plugged into the Comcast Dory Modem/Router using a CAT6 cable from one of the Ethernet ports on the Comcast device to the WAN port on the E4200.  The E4200 is set to “Automatic Configuration - DHCP.”  
We are trying to do two things.  First better WIFI in the center of the house and for a TV located next to the Comcast device, and second, have all devices in this house see and access all other devices including the Samsung SmartTV, my son’s two systems upstairs, the 3 systems in the room with the E4200, and the one network printer.  In the room with the E4200 we have 3 computers and one network printer.  3 of those 4 devices support WIFI so we don’t have to use all 4 Ethernet ports on the E4200.     
I see others talking about running the CAT6 cable to an Ethernet port on the E4200 instead of the WAN port and setting it to “Bridge Mode.”  Right now the system appears to be working fine although we are sometimes experiencing brief dropped connections with the devices hardwired into the E4200. 
Should I be running the E4200 in “Bridge” mode or “Automatic DHCP” mode and which port on E4200 should the CAT6 from Comcast be plugged into?

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.

Connecting Repeater To Access Point (router In Bridge Mode)

Dec 20, 2012

Just bought a new router and repeater for a wifi hotspot i am currently running.. I thought i was havng problems with the repeater after i change from router to a server, (and i'm now using a router in bridge mode) so the server is managing all the dhcp.. etc, Hence, the router is Running as an access point. The server which is a Hotspot Server does the rest. For some reason, repeaters, do connect to the access point apparently, but when connecting the client to the repeater (instead of access point) I can't get internet access. although i do get access to the repeater setup.and access point setup too.. or if that is the fact that repeaters must be connected to a router, not access point? should I use it as a WDS? or AP-wds? I have a Cisco Lynksys e1200 router (which i'm using as access point) and an Encore ENXWI-1AN45 3 in one range extender?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Turning An E4200 Into Access Point?

Jan 22, 2012

I have broadband internet coming into 1 room of my home. The internet goes through a router I have set up, its a Linksys WRT54G2 (router #1), Firmware version 1.0.04. Everything on this works fine, I'm able to get my TV and laptop in a different room to access the router wirelessly without any inconvenience.In another room I have a regular desktop computer which I would like to get internet on. As well as other devices, so I purchased another router, this time a Linksys E4200 (router #2) in hopes of turning it into an access point.Now I've set up LAN's in the past, using the actual cable plugged into the second router, problem is in this scenario I can't run a cable over to router #2. Both computers use Windows 7. Both router's drivers and firmware have been updated on the Linksys page, all my Windows drivers are updated, etc. I checked other forums for similar questions and although there are some, they date back to 2009 as well as Google which has some websites dating back to 2006! While useful, I wasn't able to find something that details how to solve my problem with my specific setup. I've already gone into router #2 and changed the router's IP to and also turned DHCP off, problem is, once I take that router off into the other room, it doesnt connect to primary network or allow devices to even "see" router #2.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G In Access Point Mode Impossible

Jul 18, 2011

I have a network with 2 WRT54Gs in it. One in the besement connects to my cable modem and serves as a gateway and DHCP server as well as a wireless access point. That WRT54G is perfectly accessible. I have another in my room set up as a router and access point only, connected by its ethernet port to the gateway. This one proves a bit trickier. Thet network works flawlessly, and if I couldn't see it sitting right there I would doubt it even existed. I can't ping it (I forgot the IP but tried all the ones that seemed logical), it doesn't show up in my network map, etc. From what I gather that's how a switch is supposed to work. But since this is also a managed router, I would think there should still be some way to connect to it to administer it. How can I log in to this router to change settings if I need to?

I'm not sure if maybe is the other router or if that's some kind of special address (My network is on the 192.168.2.* subnet, don't even ask why...). I've seen it in other posts about routing tables but they all had it routing to instead of the router's own IP. I tried pinging and got no responses at all, not from any computers or from either of the routers, so that was not useful. Tracert from my computer to the gateway doesn't show the router (my computer connects to the gateway through the router).

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Access Point To Maximize Coverage Throughout House

Jan 27, 2012

I bought two E4200s with the intent of using the second as a wireless access point to maximize coverage throughout my house. I just learned the hard way that the E4200 doesn't support that feature, and will only act as an access point if physically connected to the primary router that is connected to the internet.
Before I spend even more money on equipment, I was wondering if any of the experts here can tell me whether I can use a Linksys Bridge, like the WET610N or WES610N, to operate the second router in bridge mode and turn it into a wireless access point?

Is there a big difference between E4200 or E3200 or E2500? I know that E4200 supports 450Mbps, but I am not planning to buy new devices which could go faster than 300Mbps. Beside of technical parameters in technical specyfication is there a difference in wifi bandwith or tranmission between wifi and cable network?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using EA3500 In Bridge Mode?

I could get: After going in to bridge mode (with DHCP), I can not log in to the EA3500 (IP address assigned by the FIOS router). I connect my computer directly to one of  the EA3500 numbered ports (after various combinations of rebooting EA3500 and rebooting PC). It just continues to say "waiting" and never logs in. Tried choosing a static route (tried both and with, gateway and DNS1 = with no luck.Since I can't log in, I cannot set up my NAS on the USB port of the EA3500 (so I haven't gotten far enough to determine if the USB port will even work in bridge mode).Thought about ensuring the latest firmware but since I can't log in I can't do that. (And after a hard reset EA3500 IP address is which creates conflict with FIOS)

Linksys Wireless Router :: To Know If Bridge Mode Set Up UTA200

Dec 26, 2008

I have just purchased t-mobile's at home phone service (voip) and they gave me a UTA200-TM Hiport Adaptor to connect for the service.  Had Vonage (voip) for 2 years so know how it works and never had problems.  This one however will only allow the phone line to stay on for about 30 seconds and then drop it.  Have it connected to a modem (cable internet) and a WRT54GS Wireless Router.  T-Mobile wants me to check to see if the router has bridge mode set up as they think that may be causing the phone line to drop out.  How can I check that?  I can not figure out the directions on the linksys site, too confusing.
