Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 - Admin Username / Password Versus SSID / WPA

May 18, 2012

The EA4500 web-settings application asks for a username and password.  The username is "admin" and the password is my long (60 character) wpa key.  I see where I can change the password but it says I'll lose all wireless connections.  This doesn't make sense to me.  I would think the router administration username and password are completely separate from the ssid and wpa key. This was the case with my earlier LinkSys router. I'd like a router administration username to be something other than the generic "admin" and a password that is easier than my long wpa key.  I want a separate ssid and wpa key (what I currently have).

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 - SSID With Random Password

Feb 3, 2013

I purchased what I think is a new EA4500 but the box was not sealed.  On setup it had a SSID name of Mischief Dolphin populated with a random password.  Is this a default or was perhaps this router already setup (used)

Linksys Wireless Router :: Pros / Cons Same SSID For 2.4 Versus 5 (E2500)

Dec 2, 2012

I just got a new E2500 and out of the box the system uses the same SSID for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.  Obviously you CAN configure them to use different SSID's, though.  Should I make them different or keep them the same?  I don't really want to mess around with having 2 different SSID's if I don't get a real benefit.Will most devices that support both (like a new laptop) find and use the 5 automatically?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 -Admin User ID Changed To SSID Name?

Jul 12, 2010

I have manually configured the E2000 and set the admin password. When I was trying to log back in, I could not. I reset and reconfigured and set the password again. I still could not log in using "admin" and the password I set up. I thought I was losing my mind. Just on a hunch, I used the SSID name instead of "admin", then entered the password that worked. I am able to login, but I need the username to be admin, not the SSID. Has anyine else had this issue? Any way to change the administrator name back to admin??

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 5GHz SSID Cannot Be Hidden?

Sep 10, 2012

I have found that if I do not enable the broadcast SSID option on my 5GHz N network that my devices will forget the network and not reconnect on their own.  Yet, I have the 2.4GHz G/N network set up to not broadcast my SSID and I have no problems.  Why can't I disable my SSID broadcast on the 5GHz N network without these problems?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 FTP Server Name Did Not Update With New SSID

Nov 30, 2012

I had a SSID name conflict with one of my devices and the router. I changed the routers SSID which eliminated the conflict.  I noted that after changing the SSID, the name of the FTP server did not update to the new SSID. Is this an issue? I did not see any way to manually edit the FTP name. FTP works fine as is.

Oct 16, 2012

I am trying to figure out my WEP code to use to connect to XBOX LIVE.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GR - Can't Find Or Remember Username And Password

Jul 6, 2011

I successful set up my WRT54GR router. Now I want to add a new device but can't find or remember my user name and password. So I decided to reinstall the router only to find that  the page asks me for my admin password - having sensibly created one 4 years ago which I have now forgotten or  where I wrote it down. How the hell do I get around this - if at all or do I have to buy a new router and start all over again!

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Change Admin Password On WRV210

Jul 8, 2011

I just got a WRV 210 wireless router (three of them actually, planning to set up a VPN). But I can't set the admin password. I've tried 4 times, and every time, i've got to hold the reset button to reset to factory settings in order to access the management pages! I enter the new password in both fields, and then click to save the settings. It restarts. Then i try to log in - and it doesn't accept the new password. It doesn't accept the default password. I've tried with admin/(new password) and (new password)/(new password), and admin/admin. None of them work, forcing me to reset router to factory settings. I've tried a password composed of 6 letters followed by a . Thinking that maybe the . was throwing it off, I tried 6 letters followed by 3 numbers. That doesn't work either. I've updated to firmware version No luck.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 - Reset 4 Times But Not Accept Username / Password Input

Oct 10, 2011

I changed my E1000 router name successfully, and then went into the Administration section to change my password.  After changing the password and clicking on Save a small screen pops up asking me to verify my router's username and password.  When I enter the exact same user name and password it does not accept them.  When I try to enter the old user name and password it does not accept them either.  I then try combinations of the two and it still will not accept the input.  I have reset my router 4 times now and this keeps occurring.  I am completely baffled.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Changes SSID And Password On Its Own

Dec 18, 2011

I just purchased an E4200 and got it up & running.  Everything was fine, until I connected a Wi-Fi DVD player to it.  I followed the DVD player procedure, which was to push the WPS button on the router, and then the appropriate button on the DVD player.  After a few seconds, the player connected, and I successfully accessed YouTube through it.
So far, so good -- except that it turns out that the router, on its own, changed the SSID and password.  When I could not get Wi-Fi access on my iPhone, I checked the Wi-Fi settings, and instead of the original SSID of the E4200 -- let's say ShadeTree -- it was changed to Cisco_WPS_xxxxx (the X's represent numbers).  I started Cisco Connect, and a screen came up showing that the password had been changed from the original, and listed both the original and new passwords.
What is going on?  Why would the E4200 change the SSID and password all by itself, when I connected a Wi-Fi equipped DVD player with WPS?  Is this going to happen when I connect a Wi-Fi equipped TV set, or some other component?  What can I do to keep the E4200 from changing the network name and password all by itself?  Or am I going to have to re-program every other Wi-Fi device (iPad, iPhone, etc.) every time I add a new component?

Cisco Linksys Ea4500 Versus Asus Rt-n66u

Jun 18, 2012

Does the CPU speed make any difference?I'm reading that the Asus offers great Wifi Coverage - which is nice cause both the wife and myself use the laptops a fair bit.. However - most of my devices are currently on a wired setup..through a belkin 1gbit powerline setup.I run a NAS for storage - a separate machine for media serving, 2x ps3s for media streaming a seagate HD+ media player + a sonos bridge and my desktop on the wired setup..As for wireless normally I'd have 3 Androids along with 2 laptops & 5 sonos players...


I might have been talking rubbish there - I was sure I'd read somewhere that the Asus unit had a whopping 1gb ram installed vs. the 256mb of the Linksys/Cisco ea4500 - however looking at the specs again, both read @256mb.
