Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 - Allowing Vizio Internet Apps To Connect From Two Different TV's

May 28, 2012

EA4500 Linksys router stopped allowing vizio Internet apps to connect from two different TV's. Problem, Just got brand new EA4500 router and Motorola SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 High-Speed Cable Modem Model: 575319-019. I have 2 new vizio big screen tv's with internet apps. All was working fine and had no problems but occasional drops or limited access.
 
One day BOTH TV's could no longer connect. However, The tv's will connect to another access point. therefore the problem does not exist in the TV/s and has to be a problem in my access point (I.E. Router allowing access). Additionally, all other devices connect and work fine. I have already unplugged everything for an extended period of time. Checked for updates on firmware and verified no software needed to be updated. Rebooted router... Am using wpa-psk and feel i shouldn't have to go weep as it was working fine...

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - VIZIO Blu-ray Internet Player Won't Connect?

Mar 21, 2011

I have WRT54G router.  The VIZIO VBR231 unit finds the network OK and indicates it is connected, but nothing will stream, and  when I run a Network Test it gives me this 3 line error:

Connection to 0.0.0.0... successfully established
Resolving... could not be established
Please check your connection and try again.
 
The VIZIO support folks were not beneficial at all, and said something about Port 80 or Port 43 not being open or available.  When I talked to linksys support, they said I needed to add the VIZIO player's IP (which appears to be 0.0.0.0 in the system settings).  I poked around a bit, including the Port Forwarding tab on the router setup, but could not see a way to assign 0.0.0.0 to one of these ports, and I am hesitant to experiment.
 
I'll probably just return the unit to Costco, but I'm trying this forum as a last ditch effort.  BTW I have a VIZIO internet TV that I love, and that had absolutely no problem at all connecting to the wireless.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 USB Not Allowing External HD Only Flash Drives?

Apr 16, 2012

Recently purchased an EA4500 router and it is connected to the Internet.  One of the reasons we purchased this router was to take advantage of the usb port (only 2.0 unfortunately) to be able to share media across the network.  I spent over two hours on the phone (4/16/2012) with Linksys Tech support trying to get this feature to work.  When using a little flashdrive I can easily find the connected usb device.  However, when trying to connect to an external hard drive, it will not connect.  I tried three different external hard drives, a Western Digital 500 GB Elements drive, a Western Digital 2 TB My Book Elements drive and even a portable 1.5 TB Seagate FreeAgent drive.  Every drive had the same result.  In fact after plugging each one into the EA4500 and then selecting Safely Eject and then plugging them into my computer, each one had to go through the Fix process in order to work again.  I tried this several times.  Linksys Tech Support could not get it to work either, and they even used remote access.  When going into the web interface of the EA4500, the router sees the external drives attached to it.  However, only the little 16GB flash drive can be seen by the computer.  I know there is a list for approved devices that work with a different device, the E4200 [URL]
 
It looks like my devices are there but nonetheless its not working.  Really not sure why the router can see all of the devices but only the computer can see the flash drive.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Vizio E3D320VX TV Will Not Connect To Cisco

Sep 5, 2012

just got a Vizio E3D320VX TV and it will connect to my E4200V2 2.4Ghz N-band, but not the 5Ghz N-band. Both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz are configured virtually identical: 1) both are Wireless-N Only, 2) both auto channel width, 3) both WPA2 Personal security, 4) both SSID broadcast disable.
 
The only differences are: 1) obviously the SSIDs and 2) I manually set the 2.4Ghz channel to the least used in my area. I kept the 5Ghz channel auto.To connect to 2.4Ghz, in the Vizio TV network settings, I left their settings to Auto (DHCP), and put in the SSID name. The TV searches for it, sees that it's WPA2PSK and asks for the password. Put it in and boom it works.When I try on 5Ghz (again on "Auto"/DHCP for the TV), I put in the SSID, and the TV "thinks" about it for awhile, then says something like "Cannot connect, please try another Wireless Access Point". It never gets to the point where it asks for the WPA2 password.
 
The TV is downstairs and the E4200V2 is upstairs, but I used my iPad2 in the same room and it connects to the 5Ghz with no problem. But just in case the TV has a 5Ghz reception problem, I set the channel width to wide/40Mhz and bumped tried a couple of the higher channels (149 and 161), and it still won't connect.I also went into Administration and turned on logging to try to see what is happening when the TV tries to connect, but for some reason nothing is logging, not even my other devices' traffic -- very strange (yes I hit Save Settings after enabling logging).

Jul 9, 2012

I've bought the EA4500 and configured it to connect to internet. it works fine.however, one day after it, it can't connect to the internet anymore.I go to the router setup page and try to manually connect it to the internet, but it keeps "connecting."

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Not Allowing Full Internet Bandwidth

Oct 16, 2011

I have a 100mb conection and regularly get 90mb plus speed when conected direct to the modem. If I conect via the E4200 I only get 50mb ? I have tried disabling the firewall and QOS but this has had no effect. I am using a wired conection and the latest firmware. Its almost as the E4200 is capped at 50mb throughput.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT110 / Vizio Smart TV - DCHP Connection Not Available

May 15, 2013

I have a WRT110 and a Vizio smart TV - just changed internet providers to NuLink to get a Mbps line - previously had AT&T DSL 1.5 - when tech power cycled router every laptop and smartphone in the house connected with no issue - TV did not connect (it was on during time tech was doing install) - attempted to connect with password, failed to connect multiple times - sometimes message 'DCHP connection not available' message was displayed - called Vizio, 1 hour and 9 minutes of troubleshooting with no success, according to Vizio tech all settings on TV good recommended I contact Lynksys and ask them to ' check 2 ports - port 80 and port 446' - also advise 'connection is autopopulating to 101' - I believe he was referring to the IP address request - router set to WPA2 personal - note that when I first got TV 3 months ago I was able to connect to router no problem, but I do not know if TV had connection the day we switched internet providers.  I do have 2 fixed IP addresses entered an one of them ends in '101' - I do not know if that is significant or not.  The main reason for the internet switch was to get the TV online, disappointed that I could not get it done.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Unable To Connect To EA4500

Oct 2, 2012

Just purchased a ea4500 router. Have setup multiple computers/devices already and works great. This computer (HP dv6000 running Win Vista home prem) however will not connect to the internet. It states that it is connected to the router (computer sees router), using the cloud connect app on my iphone i can see this computer, but will not allow access to the internet (local connection only). It works fine with the wired connection. When attempting to use the cloud connect software, it says it was unable to complete the install. Have attempted trying while connected by wire as well, same result. Have deleted the wireless connection and allowed software to find connection, still same result, cannot install. Wireless worked perfectly with previous router (WRT54G) three days ago.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Cannot Connect To Ciscoconnectcloud

Nov 18, 2012

I upgraded my router's firmware automatically.  Then I wasn't able to connect to ciscoconnectcloud.  I then thought It might be better to do the upgrade manually, so I downloaded the classic firmware, and rolled it back.  I then downloaded the Smart Wifi firmware and the Smart Wifi setup software and did the manual upgrade.  Now, I'm able to connect when I use the old 192.168.1.1 address, but not to ciscoconnectcloud.com, and even then I had to refresh a couple of times to get it to work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Won't Connect Through PPPoE

Nov 17, 2012

I've been using my EA4500 since it's original launch date as a PPPoE router through another router/modem which is the Netgear DG834G V4 set to Modem Only mode which was working fine for a long time!A month ago, a friend wanted to borrow the Netgear Router and after he gave it back I reset it like I always do and entered my settings in router mode(i.e. username and password) to check if I havewe working Internet connection and that the router is working properly and it was working properly like it was before I lent it. Now comes the problem, if I keep using the Netgear router as the PPPoE handler and make the EA4500 work as "Automatic Configuration DHCP" it works flawlessly but if I set the Netgear router to modem mode and make the EA4500 handle the PPPoE connection, the report in the troubleshooting tab keeps on saying "Connecting" endlessly!
 
Note: I've replicatedthe settings that I used on both router before and after lending it to my friend so there's no difference in settings!

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 And Blocking Apps / Ports?

Feb 21, 2013

I bought the EA6500 yesterday, to replace my E3200.Formerly, with the E3200, I was able to block applications on the router admin page, without blocking all internet access, under the "Access Restrictions" Tab. I could create access policies that allowed internet access to specific devices, while blocking port ranges/protocols for specific applicatons. while this didn't work for Skype, which jumps from one port to the other until it finds an open one, it worked perfectly for World of Warcraft. the primary target of my restrictions.in common with the old setup for the E3200, the new cloud login allows me to block internet access completely to a device. it also allows me to block websites to my heart's content, an improvement upon the old system, which stopped at four. but to my great surprise, it will not allow me to specify port blockages for specific apps for specific devices., while the new EA6500 is blessed with the added capability of actually recognizing applications by name, *it is only to give them greater priority*. the Media Prioritization tab lets you give a ton of your bandwith to specific apps, but won't let you throttle or block them. Is there some way to work around this? Some alternative firmware? again, I don't want/need to block all internet access to a particular computer. I only need to block some apps (World of Warcraft, and Skype, possibly some torrents) by closing some ports.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Guest Access Does Not Connect?

Apr 18, 2013

My EA4500 has the newest firmware and is properly configured to support 20+ wireless and wired devices. It does this job well.Guest Access, however, is a problem. It works for about a day, then stops.Guests can access the login screen and enter the password. Then nothing happens. The screen appears to "load", but it does not connect.I have tried returning to default settings and reconfiguring and reupdating firmware. I have tried turning Guest Access on and off, as well as resetting the password.The only that works is rebooting the router. This is obviously not practical, especially for a contract client.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Xbox Won't Connect Live

Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Connect To EA4500 In Bridge Mode

Jan 16, 2013

I configured the EA4500 to work in bridge mode, to use it as an accespoint for an existing network (Linksys WRT610N). It gets an IP address (192.168.1.141), but does not offer a wireless network (the ethernet ports do offer network acces). When I try to access the configuration on IP address 192.168.1.141 I get the Linksys Smart Wifi page asking for the password. When I enter the password, a message "Waiting" appears and that's all. It keeps me waiting forever and I cannot access the configuration settings.I have tried to reset the router (30sec. reset button, power off 30sec, power on) but the result is the same.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cannot Connect Oppo BDP-95 To Cisco EA4500

Dec 23, 2012

I have problem connecting my Oppo blu-ray player (BDP-95) to the CISCO EA4500 router.I had a buffalo router before and everything was fine.I bought the EA4500 a few months ago.  All was fine when I set up the Wi-Fi connection to all my existing devices, including, notebook, iPad, iPhone, TV, etc.  But the only exception is my Oppo blu-ray player.  The oppo player can detect the SSID of EA4500, after entering the security password, it just shows "Connection Failed!"
 
However, my Oppo player can connect to other wireless access point (e.g. the wi-fi sharing from my Android Phone.)I have tested almost everything in the past few months....including, upgrade firmware, factory reset the router, turn off all the security setting in my router.  But none of them works.Frankly speaking, I am quite familar with the setup of such wireless stuffs.  ( I had almost 10 wireless at home and every device was setup without any problem)

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Cisco Connect Cloud

Jul 22, 2012

Keep having trouble with login onto my router (EA4500)Every now and then it will work but more often than not when I try to access it using either myrouter.local or 192.168.1.1, I keep getting an unexpected error message in the middle of the screen and it will go no further.  Or I get no error and just a blue background with no icons or anything.
 
I tried going back in the firmware to what it was when I bought the device which is non-cloud (Ver.2.0.37.131047), but when I did that, I was logging into the router perfectly but had no internet access at all even tho all the gateway and dns details were present on the status page for the internet.  
 
I've put it back to the cloud firmware (Ver.2.1.38.138880) and i'm back to these login problems again so I tried as per request with a cisco advisor in live chat to totally reset the router using the reset button at the back.  Oh that caused problems getting things back online as every time I tried to access the interface I got a 502 error.  I managed to get back online using the cisco disc that came with the router but now I'm back to square 1 with these access problems to the router.
 
I just can't see what is wrong here, it was fine prior to it updating itself to the cloud software, but it has been problem galore ever since.I am running Ubuntu Linux and have tried both firefox and chrome browsers which doesn't seem to matter.I have tried my sons laptop running vista which gets the same problem.I have tried disconnecting everything else on my network apart from my PC (the linux one) which is ethernet cabled direct to the router.The cloud app for my HTC does work but has very limited settings and runs extremely slow.
 
Might be worth mentioning that this morning when I tried accessing from google chrome, in the error box also popped up the following message, 'error_get_networks', this is the first time I saw this message so don't know if its of any relevance.  I do have set in the settings that my DHCP server starts at 192.168.1.201 and most of the computers in my house have a static IP address so I don't believe anything is clashing to cause any errors.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 Disconnected From Internet While Allowing UPNP

Oct 29, 2011

I have a Linksys router (model BEFSR41) and I all the outputs going to two computers and two gaming systems (X360 and PS3). I have had the router for over a year and it works fine, but I recently decided to attempt to have my 360 access the media on my computer by linking the two together through the Media Center. To do this, I needed to enable my router to allow UPnP (according to Microsoft help). When I did enable this, the router would disconnect me every 2-5 seconds from the internet, then would reconnect me right away.I have no clue why it was doing this (it occured across all of my devices) so I just disabled UPnP and things went back to normal. How to fix this so that I can have a consistent and stable connection when I have UPnP enabled?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Disable Cisco Connect Cloud

Jun 26, 2012

My EA4500 router now automatically goes to Cisco Connect Cloud, and I can no longer access my router directly through my browser. I do not want to use Cisco Connect Cloud, for security reasons, so how can I disable the automatic access to the cloud? Use of the Cisco Connect Cloud should be optional, and not mandatory. If the cloud is the only way I will be allowed to make changes in my router, I may just have to return it to the store. Can this "feature" be turned off?

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 :: EA4500 Off / On And Internet Port Came Back On With 1Gb

May 26, 2012

I have a CISCO modem from SHAW set as bridge. I recently bought a CISCO EA4500 which got automatically upgrade to the current Firmware 2.0.37 after connecting it to my ISP. After a few days I noticed my internet speed was slow. When I checked the router I saw it flipped from 1Gb to 100Mb. Called Shaw they could not figure this one out, while waiting I decided to turn everything off / on and internet port came back to 1Gb. 2 days later same thing again, I just turned off both the modem and EA500 router.  A couple of days later again same problem but this time I just turned EA4500 off/on and internet port came back on with 1Gb.Otherwise I will have to turn this one back in to the store for an exchange.
