Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Drop Signals On Fairly Regular Basis

Nov 13, 2012

So here's my issue, I just bought this EA4500 so I could use the 5.0 Ghz and get a new 2.4Ghz as my old Netgear would drop the signal on a fairly regular basis. I've set the channel on 2.4 to 1, 20 Mhz Channel, and my neighbors are for the most part using channels 6 and 11 (one guy is using channel 2 at 40Mhz but has a very low signal strength). The signal drops out sometimes as often as every 5 minutes, and now it is doing it on my new router. Here's the kicker, the 2.4 band falls out from my router and some of my neighbor's routers, no new signal seems to come up, but the 5.0 band on the EA4500 is just fine, as is the wired route. Is the 2.4 band just being assaulted at my home and I'll have to deal with it, or is it that my new router, old router, and my neighbor's routers, all suck, and we should all get refunds? Any solutions to troubleshoot this beyond running a netstumbler like software, setting hard channels (including width), and long hours of trial and error? I am running this all from my macbook air, the 5.0Ghz is at 40Mhz, is the only signal, and is on a fixed channel.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Crashes Fairly Predictably After Particular Type Of Operation

Oct 27, 2011

I have an E1000 that is connected to my main computer via Ethernet and have found that it crashes almost every time I run a particular type of operation.I'm testing software and running PHP scripts that invoke cUrl to fetch data from a few different web services via SSL. I would say that at least every other time one of these operations begins, the router crashes -- I am unable to ping its internal IP and I have to power-cycle it to get back up and running.
I don't experience the crashes in any other context and I use the router all day long. I'm one release behind on firmware but the release notes on the most recent version don't suggest that upgrading would make any difference -- no mention of any bugs fixed, for example.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Requires Regular Reboots?

Jul 25, 2012

So I have a WRT160N firmware v3.0 wired connection to my PC, and at least once a day my connection speed drops from 2mbs down to almost dial up speeds at 60kps. Just unplugging the router then plugging it back in seems to fix it every time.   I've contacted my service provider and they say there's no issue on their end, and since I don't get this problem when I plug the modem directly to the PC I agree with them.  I've done a factory reset and that didn't work.  I've gone through the FAQ and can't find anything useful in there.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g - Regular Wifi Connection Failure After Updating To 4.21.5?

Aug 26, 2012

I recently updated my WRT54G V3 to frimware 4.21.5 and now get regular wireless connection issues.  The wired connection never has any problem (can connect to the router and the internet), but none of the wireless devices can see either.
The problem happens every couple of days, and cycling the power seems to be the only fix. When the problem does occur, the wireless devices don't even see the broadcasted SSID.  But cycling the WRT54G's power fixes that.
I've gotten a few suggestions to do a "30-30-30" reset, but can't find exactly what that entails.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000-RM Signals Dropping In And Out

Jan 18, 2012

E2000-RM router has been working fine until about 2 days ago. Wired connection still works fine, but the wireless signals seems to be dropping in and out. I have a couple wireless devices and they all seem to be experiencing problems. Using the network connection bar on my laptop sometimes it shows a strong signal and connects no problem. Then all of a sudden the signal is gone (drops off list). It can be both the main and guest signal dropping, other times it might just be the main, etc., etc.   Sometimes it shows a signal but will not connect and then a few seconds it might connect, or drop entirely.  I guess the best word to describe it is highly erratic. Distance does not seem to matter. I can be 2 feet away and get the same behavior. The indicator on the box shows a signal at all times.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1500 -Getting Weak Signals?

Dec 7, 2011

So I just got this router in hopes that I would get a better signal within my room as opposed to my older router. Unfortunately, nothing has changed, in fact I think I'm getting weaker signals. My previous router was a D-Link WBR-2310. I went to speed and tested 3 variables. My wifi on my desktop in my room, my wifi when right next to a router on my laptop, and my wifi using my neighbors wifi in my room.
My room Desktop Wifi:
Download was 0.50 mbs Upload: 3.6
My laptop right next to Router:
Download 19.87 mbs Upload: 3.5
My room Desktop Neighbors Wifi:
Download was 17.3 mbs Upload was 3.32.
What is the point of this new wireless N router, when it can't beat a G router older model in reach? And why does is have a 0.50 mb d/l speed but a 3.6 upload speed?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 Not Broadcasting N Network - Signals

Jul 4, 2012

I am having no end of issues with this router since the upgrade to CCC. I don't want to downgrade because the reason I purchased the router was for the hopeful addition of more apps later on and the CCC. 
My router has now suddenly decided to no longer broadcast N signals. My 2.4ghz network is set for mixed and my 5ghz is set for N Only. They are both set to auto channel and WPA2 Personal security and have been working since I purchased the router on Sunday.
Last night it spontaneously rebooted and that was that.

Both laptops (with N adapters) are seeing the 2.4ghz network as 802.11g and my 300Mbps notebook adapter is seeing the 5ghz network as 802.11a. InSSIDer is showing that both networks are now broadcasting at a max of 54Mbps.
I have tried rebooting the router multiple times. I have also tried unplugging it for 60 seconds. I have also attempted to force the 2.4ghz to 20Mhz and a more optimal (unused) channel. That doesn't work. I tried setting the 5ghz network to wide (40mhz) with an optimal channel. Same deal. Still seeing it as 802.11a.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Bridge To Expand Signals

Sep 29, 2009

I just installed a Linksys WRT160N router. The signal started of good about 50 to 70 feet from the routers location. Now the signal is registering as low to good, about 54Mbps. I was wondering what options I might have to install a wireless bridge for expansion of the signal. I have configured an encrypted network using WPA2. I am wondering what the technical difficulty would be to install and configure it. I setup the WRT160N myself if that means anything.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Getting WAP54g To Repeat (extend) Signals

May 15, 2013

At one of our offices, we have a Cisco ASA5505 firewall that has dhcp enabled. I have a WRT54G router plugged into that firewall with DHCP enabled. The scope of our inside network is 192.168.51.***, however when connected to the WRT54G, it gives you the scope of 192.168.1.***We have an antenna amplifier screwed into one of the antenna ports on the router. This whole setup works fine.
 The problem is we need to install an access point WAP54G in a building across the property (picks up router wireless signal fine) to repeat the wireless signal to the back of the property where the router will not reach. I have read that all you need to do is type in the wireless mac address of the routher into the access point and select "Wireless Repeater". I have the channels set to 6 on both devices as well as the same security configuration. When I try to connect to the wireless network on the access point, It never gives me an ip in the 192.168.1.*** scope, which the WRT54G is configured to give out. Also, in this setup does the WRT54G need to be set to router or gateway mode? I do not need it to distribute ip addresses. [code]

I have a Wrt160n router and a Motorola sb120 modem (provided by comcast after my original modem got fried by lightning, no I didn't have my router hooked up when that happened), I have been having trouble trying to get the modem to send the internet signal to my router. I have tried mac address clone that was suggested on this forum for someone with a different router but still no internet to my computer, its all hooked up through Ethernet cables, the computer I have it hooked up with a hard line is running windows seven. When I plug the modem straight to the computer it works and I have internet but when I hook up the router between them it has no internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Devices Cannot Find WRT400N / Signals Wirelessly?

Sep 6, 2011

I've had been successfully using a WRT400N to extend my wireless network as follows:
The WRT400N connected to my network via an Ethernet port in my kitchen. The cable ran down to a corner of my basement connecting to Verizon router that brings in our Internet, TV etc.
The Verizon router's poor location was a problem, and placing the WRT400N in the kitchen worked perfectly, providing excellent network access and Internet to wireless devices throughout my home. It worked fine for over a year.
Recently, we had a power outage which reset the WRT400N to factory settings. and I am having trouble getting it to work again. I set it up in the first place, but am now having difficulties. Clearly, I am no guru!
I tried to get it going again by: 1) plugging the WRT400N into a PC and giving it a new IP address that would not conflict with the Verizon router (both default to   2) turning off DHCP,  3) renaming the router, 4) changing the router password, 5) setting up a WPA2 security key.
I then plugged the WRT400N back into the kitchen Ethernet port, but something is wrong. Wireless devices cannot find the WRT400N.
The good news is that I can "see" the WRT400N through any PC on the network via a browser and access setup, but the bad news is that devices cannot see or connect to the wireless signal.
When I go to "Status" it shows the IP address, subnet address and default gateway all at On the SETUP page, it has the correct router address (, and a subnet mask of Not sure if it is supposed to be this way...

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Is Defective Giving Weaker Signals

Jul 3, 2011

Just got the E4200 and it seemed great at first.  Connected at 450mbps at close range (maybe 6ft away) and got 223mbps transfer.It seems that recently my signal is much weaker.  I'm around 6-8ft away from the router and I'm getting between 270-360mbps, which to me is poor given the short range.InSSIDer says the RSSI is -50, while my other wireless N router (dual band) is -35 and is in the exact same location.  I'm using the 5ghz radio only, and it is set to N, and I'm using channels 44 and 48.  I checked the hidden advanced wireless page and transmit power is already set to high.My laptop has an Intel 6300 wireless card.I'm using the current firmware 1.0.02,I've noticed that the speed of the router randomly seems to drop off too (just as I type this, the link rate has gone back up to 450mbps... typical).  Is the router throttling when it gets hot or something? So I just want to find out if others are experiencing similar rates at the same kind of distance.  Seriously, how can you advertise something as 450mbps when you can't even get that link rate at a distance as short as 6ft?I can't see any thing I can do to increase the link speed (back down to 270mbps now), short of a firmware update to increase the power and use higher channels.  I hear the higher channels are much better, so who do I have to write to, to plead for new firmware?,This is a great product, but it's totally ruined by stupid internal antennas and a weak transmit power.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Drop Internet Connection

Sep 13, 2011

I’ve bought a router, and a wireless antenna for my laptop, since I have a high-speed internet outlet in the living room, but I use my laptop in the kitchen (I don’t have any other pc). So I’ve configured my Linksys WRT120N router in the living room, unplugged the ethernet cable from my laptop, plugged the wireless antenna in the kitchen, and everything was working fine with the wireless network. After about one month I was not able anymore to enter my network with the security key, there was actually no prompt for the security key, just a message “Cannot connect to the network”. I then had to reconfigure the router, going to the router IP address (I used the default settings, a blank for username, and “admin” as a password, as per instructions), use another network name, security key and password, and was able to start again a wireless network with the wireless antenna as before. This problem represented other 3 times (in the last 3 months), and was working fine, but now I cannot reconfigure the router anymore, since the IP address doesn’t accept BLANK/ADMIN anymore, and if I go ahead and reconfigure the router a message says I have to use the default settings in the IP address…

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G2 V1.0 Devices Would Drop Repeatedly

Apr 5, 2012

I purchased this router a few months ago(wrt54g2 v1.0) when I moved into st louis missouri. My ISP is charter communications. I am using windows 7 64 bit.I had no problems with this router with wired connections, however my wireless devices would drop repeatedly. I updated the firmware to the latest linksys version, but still same issue.After much research online and trying everything I could through linksys, I found a page that someone with the same problem said it could be solved by upgrading to dd-wrt freeware firmware. After much trials and problems, I finally got it installed. However I did not like dd-wrt because it would not allow FTP access no matter what i tried, and would lead to dropouts of wired connetions even though it did fix the wireless.I then decided to revert back to the previous firmware - this is where i think i messed up..I downloaded tftp and a firmware called vxworkskiller, this was supposed to be able to break the dd-wrt firmware which it did, and removed it. I continued to follow the instructions provied to me and was able to then install the linksys firmware but I accidentally upgraded the firmware for the router WRT54GS with the firmware version 7.50.2. This is now dropping both wired and wireless connections VERY frequently. My roomate is not happy as we have to power cycle the modem, router and pc's every couple of hours and sometimes that doesn't even work.I am unable to flash firmware of any version or type anymore, every upgrade fails weither I use the linksys gui, or tftp or any previously working firmware. All fail.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200v2 Xbox Drop About Every 15-30 Minutes

Feb 23, 2012

I have 3 devices connected to the e4200v2 via etherent, out of the 3, only my Xbox has drop about every 15-30 minutes. I have tried Cisco customer service 4 times and Xbox customer service 3 times with absolutely no luck. They both tell me that all of my setting are correct and there is nothing more that can be done.
I have tried everything that I can think of: Port triggering, port forwarding, DMZ, UPnP enabled/disable, power cycling everything, putting Xbox as Qos high priority, designating a static IP for the Xbox, clear the Xbox's cache twice, I even formatted my Xbox's hard drive in case of corrupt data. The Xbox does not disconnect when connected directly to the modem, making the router the common denominator. I am on the verge of returning the router.

Unable To Connect To Internet On Wireless Basis When In Safe Mode

Aug 27, 2012

I was provided with a new wireless modem from our internet service provider (the old modem was antiquated and needed updating). After this, i have been unable to connect to the internet on my laptop on a wireless basis. I can search for the modem via the usual means and seemingly connect, but when i am connected it states that i have 'Local Access' only and i am unable to access the internet at all. I am also unable to connect to the internet on a wireless basis when in safe mode.I am however, able to connect using a Ethernet cable from the modem.My laptop is fairly old but it is fine for our needs and thus i do not really want to change it unless totally necessary. I just wonder if it is something relatively simple that i am overlooking?My son also has a more modern laptop, and he tells me that he can use the internet via our new modem without any problems. Which would suggest there is nothing wrong with the modem.The operating system is Windows Vista, if that makes any difference.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Speed Drop Using Ethernet Cable

Oct 4, 2011

I'm pretty new to networking.  Purchased a E4200 for my home line.  When i connect directly through the modem i see speeds of about 600mbps but when i connect through the router via an ethernet cable on an empty port on the back of my e4200 my speeds drop to about 180mbps.  I expected a speed loss going through wireless but why i am experiencing a speed loss by using the ethernet as a passthrough?  I thought the ethernet ports on the e4200 were gigabit and support up to 1000mbps?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT110 Internet Connection Will Slow Down Or Drop Entirely

Jan 8, 2012

I purchased a WRT110 router about a 18 months ago.  I am currently experiencing an issue where the wireless connection to the router will become randomly erratic.  My internet connection will slow down or drop entirely.  Sometimes my laptop will disconnect from the router entirely.  I don't think it's the wireless card in my laptop since I have seen the issue on my desktop using a wireless N USB adapter, my Nintendo Wii, and my wife's Macbook, all within the last week.
I am positive it is the router.  I set up a coninuous ping command to the router accross my laptop's wireless using "ping -t" in a command prompt.  Most of the time, the round trip is 1 to 3 ms or <1 ms.  When I am experiencing the connection issues, the ping time will rise significantly, sometimes going as high as 2000 - 3000 ms.  About 25% of time, the ping will just time out.  When this starts happening, the only way I have been able to restore proper connectivity is to manually reboot the router.  The issue eventually re-appears.  Sometimes in a few days, sometimes in as little as five minutes.  I've gone so far as to restore the router to factory defaults and reconfigure it, but that has not made a difference.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt320n Wifi Connection Drop When Internet Connected

Oct 11, 2012

I have experienced some strange behavior of WiFi connection using WRT320N router. ISP provides me the internet in 2 modes (day and night). During day mode max speed is 24 Mb/s and during night 60 MB/s. Modem ADSL (Cisco EPC3010) is connected to Linksys WRT320N and on router is configured WiFi.Now issue. In the day mode everything is perfect. Cable connection gives me 24 MB/s and WiFi connection around 22 MB/s so not so bad.  However when my internet speeds up to 60 Mb/s (cable connection via router gives exactly 60), WiFi connection instead speed up as well, just drop to max 17 Mb/s. I have tied several different settings on the router including changes in WiFi band, channel width, different channels (now channel is setup to 1 which is maybe not totally free but no so occupied) and others but unfortunately without significant improvement (in many cases connection just slowed down more).

And some details:
Wireless configuration (now)
Band: 2.4GHz
Mode: Wireless-N only
Channel Width: Auto (20MHz or 40 MHz)
Channel: 1

Wireless adaptor:  Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 (I know that this doesn’t mean anything but Win7 shows that connection is established with speed 144MB/s)Router firmware and WiFi card updated to the newest version.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wireless Client Drop On Transferring Data

Dec 14, 2011

I have had an e4200 for about a month now and its been pretty good.  But I have noticed that it completely locks up when I go to copy mass amounts of data through it.    I have a NAS drive plugged into it and my laptop is on the 2.4 spectrum.  I went to transfer 8gigs of data from laptop to NAS drive and the entire wireless portion of the router locks up.  All my wireless clients drop and I have to unplug the router and plug it back in.    Even the 5ghz clients drop as well.  I have not tried hardwire, but the main reason I got this was for its throughput.

Once I'd got my head around setting that up it works fine.However since I've come back to the UK today I now cannot connect to a regular wireless router, its just not 'seeing it'. I have used this connection in the UK before without problems and the setting are all still saved from my last trip back but it doesnt show up when I try to connect.Is this something to do with the laptop being set up on the PPPoE connection in Italy? Ive deleted the PPPoE connection but that hasnt made a difference

Just sold my computer and the plan was to buy a newer mac but we've been getting along fine without a computer with just using our iphones. So my question, I see that Cisco has the Connect Express app for the iphone, and I've read about all the features it has like changing settings, router features, etc. But I can't find anything on using the app for the initial set up of the router. I'm currently on an older linksys router (set up before we sold the computer) but it's time for a needed upgrade.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Won't Obtain IP From ISP

May 12, 2012

My new EA4500 (fw ver 2.0.36) won't obtain an IP from a Brighthouse TM502G cable modem.  The EA4500 replaced a functioning WRT54G which would obtain an IP from the ISP.  I've tried upgrading firmware and have used both straight-through and crossover cables between the EA4500 & TM502G to no avail.  The EA4500 would issue IPs to it's clients, but not obtain one from it's TM502G.  At the moment, all 3 are daisy-chained together with the old WRT54G in the middle in order to make the EA4500 work.  Both WiFi and LAN ports function in this configuration.
