Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 - How To Turn Broadcast SSID On / Off

Mar 21, 2013

EA3500, I'm using the Smart Wi-Fi interface through a browser. How do I make my router broadcast the SSID? I think it was when I was setting up using the old interface, before updating the firmware, that I set it to *not* broadcast the network name. Now I feel like I've been all through the menus twice on the Smart Wi-Fi interface, and can't find the on/off toggle.


Linksys Wireless Router :: Disabling SSID Broadcast On RE1000?

Oct 25, 2011

I just set up a brand new LinksysE4200 router at one end of my home, and a Linksys RE1000 range expander at the other end in order to provide full WiFi coverage to my entire house.  Everything is working great except for one important detail.. There is currently no way to disable SSID broadcast on the RE1000 range expander! I just flashed it with the latest firmware (v1.0.01 build 2, Jul 22, 2011) , but I'm still unable to disable it, even though it is disabled on the E4200 from which it's receiving the signal it's rebroadcasting.  I am seriously considering returning the RE1000. Linksys. add the ability to disable SSID broadcast on the RE1000 in a (not too distant) future firmware upgrade! As far as I'm concerend, this is a MUST HAVE feature in order for this product to even be considered for use in any sensitive network environment.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 SSID Broadcast Disabled But Still Shows Up

Dec 1, 2011

why my SSID still displays even though I have the SSID Broadcast "Disabled" for 5 GHz and 2.4Ghz configurations.  The name of my network shows full signal strength and a lock next to the name but I was under the impression if I have disabled the SSID broadcast it shouldn't show up at all and would force a user to manually input the network name when trying to connect to it.  I have the router configured to only allow certain MAC addresses wireless access as well.  Router is running Firmware Version: 1.0.03.Also, my primary computer my iMac running 10.7.2 boots up or is brought out of sleep mode I constantly need to go up to the top of my screen and re-select my network.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Disabling SSID Broadcast For Both 2.4 And 5GHz Stops Blinking

Jul 1, 2011

I was quite excited about E4200 I got yesterday. Everything works perfect except front LED light start blinking a few hours later. Don't know why it happens in a sudden and non-stop. After several tries, I found that disabling SSID broadcast for both 2.4 and 5GHz stops the blinking.Of course, before doing that, I upgraded firmware to 1.0.02, reset to factory defaults and finally set up E4200 manually rather than using Cisco Connect. Now the LED light is continuously lit.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 891W ISR / Can't Get SSID To Broadcast

May 27, 2012

I'm working with some 891W's that have the internal 800-series AP. I have this router set up initially using Cisco Config Express, then, using Cisco Config Professional 2.5 I set up the firewall and other featuress that CCE doesn't do.  Overall this is a very simple router, meant to be a small business Internet gateway device but is currently in my lab. 
The intended WLAN setup is very simple.  One SSID, with broadcast enabled, using WPA2-Personal.  Auth: open  Encryption is both TKIP and AES-CCM. 
However no matter what I do I cannot get thhis thing to broadcast . In the past I had sometimes run into issues where if I had more than one AP running independently it would cause a channel conflict and one or both would cancel each other's radio, so I disabled all other AP's in my vicinity. 
Also I've had issues in the past where f I enabled both TKIP and AES, sometimes clients can't find the AP as a result.  My solution had been to disable one of them leaving just the other - no change here however. 
Via the IOS, ssid config shows mbssid guest-mode which I believce is default. 
Interestingly, if I do the following:
ap# Config t
ap(config)# dot11 ssid <myssid>
ap(config - ssid)#guest-mode
I end up with both "guest-mode" and "mbssid guest-mode" in the sh run for the AP, and voila, my AP broadcasts the SSID.  However clients end up joining without any security at all, no prompts for pre-shared key or anything.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GL Broadcast Keeps Cycling On And Off

Sep 22, 2011

I've had a WRT54GL ( for about a week now ) with no real issues.  Today my wife mentioned that the net's been flaky  ( wireless nto hard wired ).  I originally noticed what seemed like minutes for my desktop of laptop to connect to any web pages.  Loads were extremely slow.  According to the computer I had a 1 mbps connection.  I did the standard resetting of the modem and router.babble babble babble. Eventually, I ran a wifi analyzer from my phone to determine an ideal channel.  However, while running the frequency scanner I also noticed that my broadcasting would continue to drop off the radar for a quick moment then return.  This seemed to be true no matter what channel I set.  What's interesting is that the signal would read as extremely strong for 45 sec - 1 minute, then completely drop the signal, then another strong broadcast. Other neighboring signals don't exhibit this behavior....well I would see the weaker signals coming in and off the radar from time to time. I'm guessing it's some type of interference?  However if that's the case I can't explain why my signal seems so strong.  I'm assuming I'd see a lot of fluctuation in my signal before dropping off ( instead of going from 100 to 0 in the blink of an eye ).

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - How To Broadcast Only One Network

Mar 3, 2010

I recently had trouble connection to my Linksys WRT54G router. However, in this process I had to create a couple of new profiles/networks/SSID or whatever they are called. I now have one functioning network, but my router is still broadcasting the other two networks. How can I get my router to only broadcast the one network, I am currently using? I erased them from Vista, so that my own computer does not automatically log on to the, but that is clearly not enough. Since one of the networks is not secured with a password (dont ask why), my concern is that my neighbours can access it. BTW, I am using Windows Vista on a Toshiba Satelite A200.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea3500 Lan But No Wifi?

HP Pavilion dv7-6135dx Ent Pc  Win7 Home Prem 64
Motorola Surfboard Modem
Linksys EA3500 Router
Netgear 10/100 24 port switch
my wife bought me this EA3500 for Father's Day this year.  It's only been hooked up for a couple of weeks (we were in the middle of a move during Father's Day), but now I have no wifi on either band.  My wife can no longer connect to it either.  We have tried completely resetting it, we have reset the modem, the switch, laptops, everything.  Still no wifi.  It worked out of the box, but now we have nothing.  Does HP needs a certain type of driver?  Our iPhones show connected and surf the brower's and FB app with no issues while in wifi mode, but then again, I can pull the ethernet from the internet port and the phone's still show connected (good job, iOS).Cable from main splitter runs to basement where the modem is located.  Modem ethernet feed up a wall to a wall plate where the router is.  Router then feeds back to the switch.  The switch then sends the IP throughout the house for the LAN lines, and the EA3500 feeds all of the wireless devices (used to).  So, Cable box, modem, router, switch.  Router is currently good for LAN only.  I am connected to it via LAN right now, 2 feet from my laptop.
In connections:IPv4/IPv6 both "No Internet Access"  (for IPv4, if you change a setting in the setup, it becomes "Internet Access" for about 3 seconds.)Media State: EnabledSpeed: Alternates between 72Mbps and 144Mbps

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 Guest Access Keeps Going Down

Sep 7, 2012

The guest network on the router keeps going down. It can be seen but it cannot be connected to. Sometimes it works for a day or 2 and then it doesn't. I have to constantly babysit the network and it is entirely frustrating because the only fix is to reboot the router.I have tried factory resetting several times.I have tried re-flashing the fw.I'm using the non-CCC fw because CCC had way, way too many issues.These routers have been out for months and many people have been having issues and somehow Cisco doesn't see fit to work on firmware that stabilizes them at all? It's like, they release a router and then forget about it - the next batch comes along, often the same guts with a different shell and it's the same thing over again. I had a WRT610N and I said I'd never buy another Cisco after that but I broke my rule because of being lured by these "App enabled" features, which mind you have nothing at all over the competition since the CCC doesn't even work for most people.

It's a resource like any other and i want to use it.P.S: i tried most of the basic troubleshooting. I tried my old router back on and the DNS's works fine. I tried even conecting the old router re-routing the new one, and the other router manages the selected DNS's servers fine.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 HDD File Corruption?

Mar 5, 2013

I have recently bought a cisco EA3500 router for my home network and i am pretty surprised to see that a router from the world leader in the networking domain cannot perform as expected.
The first problem i had was that the network (wired and wireless) was dropping from time to time for a couple of minutes with the power led of the router blinking. I turned off the log feature of the router and it seems that until now the problem is resolved.
Now, the second and, at least as annoying as the first, is that i have a 640gb usb hdd connected to the router, formatted NTFS. It seems that every now and then a file gets corrupted, that is, it is transformed into a folder! And it cannot be recovered without pulling out the hdd and using a 3rd parth software for file recovery.
I have the latest firmware. Should i switch back to the classic firmware instead of the "fancy" new one? I really need my files on that drive, so i cannot risk loosing them in this random manner.

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 Via CCC Is Difficult To Connect

Aug 14, 2012

After using the newest firmware for CCC, I've found it is very convenient, but only in some ways. Now, I think I find it is uncomfortable, very disappointed and waste lot of times. Each time I try to access to CCC, it took me like 5 mins to access the web page. I understand is use when you are outside of your home network, but when I access it directly from my home (local IP), why should I need to connect via a CCC(?) I want a local connect to my router which is a faster access than via a server.
Sometimes, connect via an IP of the router, it say can't connect because of internet connection down, but actually I can still access internet except access my own router. I like the easy setup of CCC but maybe I need to switch back to non-CCC?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA2500 Won't Connect To EA3500

Apr 30, 2012

I bought a new router today because my WRT54GL was giving me some fits. I purchased an EA3500 and I'm using an EA2500 adapter on the desktop since the router can't reach it via ethernet.  Some of my early troubles with this combo began with not being able to test upload bandwidth.  It would just time out and give an error via the built in Cisco (OOKLA) utitliy and through after which, the network would show no internet access and I'd have to reset the adapter.  After trying to troubleshoot that issue it grew into zero internet access for my desktop however my Nexus would have wifi access without issue.  If I'd startup in safe mode with networking I'd have net access shortly and then it would quit about 30 seconds after startup.  I've tried uninstalling all drivers for the wireless NIC and the Cisco Connect software while doing everything manually but nothing changes.  This PC simply won't gain internet access with the EA3500 or even allow me to access the router through the default gateway IP.  I've since put the WRT45GL back in place and I have access again with my EA2500 adapter.  I should note that with the EA3500 in place, if I disconnected from my wireless I couldnt see any networks until I unplugged the adapter and reinserted it into the USB port (i've also tried many different ports).  I've named the SSID's of the two routers differently, tried a manual setup of the wifi, tried the CD setup, the wifi protected setup, no security, and WPA2 to no avail.  I can't seem to get the EA2500 adapter and the EA3500 router to get along.  I'm running W7 x64 Pro.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 Printer Connection Via USB?

Dec 7, 2012

I've recently purchases a Canon MF3010 Multifunction printer, and connected this to my EA3500 router's USB port. Used Cisco Connect to setup the printer, and the print function is working fine.
The issue is with the scan function. It appears the default functionality of the router is to only activate the connection to the printer when a print job is fired off. When this connection is active, the scan functionality works fine.
Another way to activate the connection to the printer to allow for scanning would be to go through
Cisco Connect>Computers and devices>PrinterWhile the process is running (searching for printer), the connection is active as well, and scanning works fine. When the process is closed, scanning no longer works, with an error message stating that communication to the printer cannot be established.
Is there a simpler way to keep the connection to the printer active, or some sort of configuration to automatically establish this connection for scanning?
