Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 V2 Can't Connect With WGA54G V2 Using WPA
Aug 26, 2012
Been having problems connecting an old WGA54G v2 (firmware 1.16, March 29, 2005) to a new E4200 v2 (firmware 2.0.36) via WPA. I can get the two to connect using no encryption or WEP but not WPA. Using WEP is not an option for me,E4200 v2 wireless settings:
1. 5GHz broadcast is off, 2.4 GHz is on.
2. Network Mode - Mixed
3. Security Mode - WPA2/WPA Mixed Mode
4. Channel Width - Auto
5. Channel - Auto
6. Guest Access broadcast is off
WGA54G v2 settings:
1. SSID - same as router
2. Network type - Infrastructure
3. Security - enabled
4. Pre-shared key - same as router
5. Encryption - WPA Pre-shared Key, TKIP (tried AES, but still no connection)
Also, tried different WPA network modes on the router (Mixed, WPA personal, WPA2 personal etc.) to no avail. Switched between mixed, B and G network modes as well on e4200 v2 but still no connection. My guess now is that the WPA on the gaming adapter and the WPA on the router are just not compatible, as completely asinine as that sounds. Thought about updating firmware on the WGA54G v2 but checked in the download section here and the last firmware available is 1.13 (appears older than my 1.16, even though the 1.13 release date listed is a month after my 1.16).
Can I connect a WGA54G (v2.1) to a standalone desktop PC running XP Pro SP3 in order to access a wireless router. I'm trying to eleminate wires and I have a spare WGA54G so I hated to buy a wireless card for the PC if I don't need to
I have a LAN device (an SBS radar decoder). It is configurable with its own IP etc etc.I am not able to install this device where my router (a Speedport W 920V) currently is.So, can I use any of the above devices, perhaps as a bridge on my current wlan network, to allow me to plug in this LAN device so I can access it anywhere in my house on the wlan?
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'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.
I have 2 E4200's . One is connected to my ADSL Modem as DHCP and the other one is Bridged to the DHCP. I'm trying to connect to my E4200 that is set as Bridged. I am able to connect to my E4200 that is set as DHCP, but I cannot connect to the E4200 that is connected to that DHCP as Bridged.
How can I connect to that bridged E4200 because I want to upgrade the Firmware of the Bridged E4200?.
I have this E4200 for about 3 months and allways has been used as an wireless router. Today i wanted to connect 2 wired computers to it via lan and whatever i do dosnt connect. Dosnt even let me acces the 192.168.1.1 page to router settings.I am on firmware 1.0.02, i also did a full reset and then did set up with cisco connect, did try that thing with the cisco usb connect and still no joy with the LAN conection.
One comp uses win 7 the other is on win xp. I can connect both comps succesfully to other router via the gigabit ports but not to this one.
On the 2.4ghz side, I'm set up on the cleanest channel (per inssider) which is 6, channel width is auto (although I've tried it fixed at 20 also), N-only, and security is WPA2 personal. WMM support is enabled. I'm running firmware 1.0.02 The laptops continually stay around 72mpbs, occasionally jumping to numbers in the 100 range... twice I saw it actually hit 144. Inssider shows the max rate as 144, while other N networks in range are as high as 270. I'm sitting right next to the router with 5 bars -- why is the max rate 144? Why won't it run at 300?
So I purchased a Linksys E4200 a couple weeks ago from Best Buy (got the $149 price) and finally got around to setting it up last Thursday. Before I get to my problem, I am happy to say that I have not experienced the "blinking light" syndrome that seems to plauge a number of other owners. In fact, the E4200 is everything I hoped it would be ... except for one problem. I cannot get my sister's Acer Aspire One netbook to connect to it.
It's really strange actually; the netbook picks up the 2.4GHz SSID fine (it's set to mixed mode) and upon selecting it and I input the WPA2-Personal password no problem. Then, it takes forever to finally aquire a network address, like at least 3 full minutes (usually this process takes a few seconds). After that, it tells me it is connected to the network with excellent signal strength. Except, despite it saying it's connected, the Internet does not work at all. If I got into the details of the wireless adapter, it tells me that the router/network failed to give the adapter a network address.
after setting up my e4200, I am no longer able to connect to Steam, I instantly get a connection error. I'm told it should work fine with UPNP, and I've even forwarded the proper ports just in case, but I cannot connect. I have latest firmware. Hoping someone else out there has same router and uses Steam.
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)?
I've switched over from a d-link dir-655 router to the v1 4200. I've been playing around with the 4200 and trying to get it connected to my tv all night long. I have two laptops and two iphones connecting with no issues. I cannot for the life of me get the tv (GT30) to work. It picks up three signals, the 2.4 signal, the 5 signal and the guest signal. The only one that will even connect to the internet is the guest signal. When I run the connection test, however it will not connect to the vierra connect server. I've tried setting it up manually, and anything else that seems obvious. I had no issue with the dlink router at all.
Just bought E4200-V2 and happy with the performance, except one thing.After several hours, I could not connect to the router manager both from "Cisco Connect" nor browser.I could resolve this by turn off the router and turn on again, but the same problem will be back after several hours.I tried to reset the router (reset 30 and reset 30/30/30) several times but have no luck.
I've noticed that my 192.168.1.1 login console was slow loading up on my E4200 V1. The router functioned just fine(wireless and wired). These past few days I tried to log in to set some DNS settings and I cannot access 192.168.1.1.I have tried via wireless and wired. The router powers on still seems to function but won't allow me to load up the admin console page.To my last resort, I held in the tiny reset button and the router seems to have went back to it's default settings (SSID = Cisco#####) but I cannot connect to it. what I can try to get back into the management window.I was able to manage everything from my laptop about a month ago or so, but now I can't do anything.
I have set up my WAG320N with my E4200v1 successfully. The problem is that my laptops can't connect through WiFi with the E4200 router, but only with the WAG320N (wireless). Since it is the first time I set up a network alone I possible have made mistakes and that's why I can't connect to my router wirelessly. My desktop pc will successfully connect to both of my routers (wired)! My devices won't (DS,Laptops). I have WEP security in my WAG320N (because this is the only one my DS card can connect to) and in my E4200 I want to use WAP2 to connect my 2 laptops. I have made nothing more than setting them up and both of my evices are new.
It is for home use, both of my devices are updated to their latest firmware and the laptops won't identify the problem and will ask to restart the router. (I did many restarts both on my routers, PC, laptops)
I got the new E4200 router as I had issues with my old router. I was able to DMZ my console with the old router. But with my new router my xbox IP has changed and I want to know which numbers to use and how to DMZ my Xbox with Cisco Connect.
After I updated my E4200 V1 with the 1.0.04 update I am unable to connect my WET610N to it with 802.11N. I can connect fine with 802.11G. I tried the Site Survey method of pairing them as well as manual. When it fails it goes through the minute timeout of trying and then Link Status is disconnected. I have anything from phones to laptops connect to the E4200 with wireless N, its just the WET610N that doesnt want to pair.
I'm using E4200 with latest 1.0.02 firmware and found I can not connect to VPN with my iPhone4 by WiFi.Googled a bit and found it's a common problem for Cisco routers when wireless devices can not connect to VPN but wired ones connects with no problems.\
I have a Motorola Docis Surfboard model Model SB6120 and can connect to the internet with the ethernet cable directly onto the labtop but if I connect it to the E4200 router the range is there but the internet connection is not. This happened 2 days ago and can't get the router to work.
Connecting E4200 media server (external hard drive connected to USB in router) to PS3.mapped External HD to media server folder. and enabled UPnP Media Server. after trying all options I can't see media server in PS3.
I just got a new E4200 router and downloaded Cisco Connect from the web site...file name CiscoConnect.E418.104.22.16860.2.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.
connecting a droboshare device to a linksys router. The droboshare that I've been using for several years and have A LOT of important files on works well with my old router (sagem) and now on my new e4200 doesn't appear to connect.
I need to hook two wireless routers togetner. I want to use the E4200 as the primary and the WRT54GS as a bridge or 2nd access point to the same network. I have the WRT54GS firmware upgraded to the latest dd-WRT firmware with WDS enabled.
I have put two different e4200 routers in my network and both of them have the same issue. I believe there are some major firmware bugs with this router. First of all I set up everything using the web interface. My laptops could connect to the network and internet but any of my devices that use wireless bridges (WET610N) to connect could only get local network access. They could not connect to the internet. After some troubleshooting I found the reason it was not working properly. I used DHCP reservations in my network because of port forwarding and such. Well when the devices connected to the bridges were in the reservation list they were unable to connect to the internet. After I removed them they now are able to get on the internet without a problem. So that is the first problem I've found so far...
The second is I can no longer connect from my Xbox 360 to my Media Center PC. I tried to set up a new connection but this did not work either.
I have an E4200. Since yesterday morning I can't connect to a certain website. This happened all of a sudden. I am able to connect to any other website I try to access, but this particular one won't connect at all anymore. If I unplug the router and connect directly from my computer to my modem, then I can access it with no problem. I haven't done anything to the router. Was there some sort of update yesterday. The website I can't connect to is [URL]
Installed E4200 with an iMac running MacOS X Version 10.6.8. Wireless connection works great. Also connected a wireless laptop without a problem. But can't connect a 2nd computer is wired. That is a PC running Vista. I know the wiring is good, because the E4200 is a replacement router in a network that was working fine.
So, with the latest firmware update I could add a second e4200 to my network to use as a bridge or access point? What I need is another device in my living room that can pick up the wireless signal and dish out network connectivity to my receiver, xbox360, and ps3. With the new firmware update can this be done with a second e4200? How does one connect to each e4200 on the network for setup (dohave to change the default ip address of 1?)I just bought a trendnet TEW-687GA 450 mb/s wireless gaming adapter and a trendnet 5 port switch to accomplish what I mentioned above. I'm just wondering if there is an advantage to switching over to two e4200's. The trendnet adapater does not have a 5ghz channel.
