Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 - Way To Secure Guest Network

Nov 2, 2012

I just installed my EA4500 router and it was amazingly simple. My only question is it shows two wireless connections available: The secured one I set up and the another network with the same name that says "guest" and is NOT secured. Is there a way to either disable the unsecured guest network or to secure the guest network?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 - Network Drive Only Works Without Secure Folder Access

Feb 2, 2013

I'm trying map the USB hard drive connected to my EA4500 router as a network drive in Windows 7, and it works perfectly until I enable secure folder access on the router.
After enabling secure folder access, and not changing any other settings on the router I first unmount the drive since it was set up without credentials and doesn't work that way any more.  When I try to remap the drive I use the same address, but select "Connect using different credentials"  When it prompts me for the log in info I try using the router admin account, but it fails to connect.   Windows network diagnostics tells me the device refused the connection.  I proceeded to set up an account on the router under the folder access settings with the same username, and password I use on my computer, and tried to connect it without checking "Connect using different credentials" (And typing them in manually if that matters) with the same results.
Even with secure folder access enabled I can still reach the drive just fine by typing "" into file explorer.  It prompts me for a username and password, I put in the admin credentials, and I'm in.  Even the account I created with the same username/password as my computer works this way.
After disabling secure folder access everything works perfectly fine again...  I would MUCH rather do this with it though.
Following these directions: [URL] When clicking the browse button the router shows up when secure folder access is disabled, but does not after it is enabled.  I've looked through my windows sharing settings, and haven't noticed anything that should cause problems, pretty much everything is enabled.  I've also tried turning off my firewall with no success.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Bridge And Guest Network

Feb 6, 2013

I want to setup a Linksys EA4500 in bridge mode behind my separate firewall to access the domain LAN. I'd also like to supply a wireless guest network for clients. In bridge mode the EA4500 doesn't seem to offer a separate guest network. Is there any solution other than adding another Wireless router just to serve up the Wireless Guest Network?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Guest Network Re-authentication Doesn't Work

Sep 15, 2012

I have successfully set up a guest network on my EA4500. Guest laptop associates with guest SSID just fine. Then via IE, it gets prompted for the guest password, which is entered and accepted just fine. At this point guest laptop is on the network.
BUT... at some point the guest laptop will need to reauthenticate (I don't know what the timeout is, but maybe one or two days?). Anyway, it's at this point that IE presents the guest network login page. But now after typing in the password, "enter" or clicking on the button does nothing. It looks like the guest web page doesn't get loaded properly or completely, so the reauthentication can't complete, therefore can't get to the internet. So, while in this state, I've also tried Firefox and Chrome, and same thing, no action when trying to submit the guest password. Tried rebooting guest laptop, and still same problem. Only thing I've found so far that works is to reboot the router. So I'm guessing there's a problem with the guest/web server on the router?? It's a real pain to have to reboot the router every day or two, when I've had other Linksys routers run for months without having to touch them.
I was running CCC 2.1.38 when I first noticed the problem. Since then I've downgraded to Classic 2.0.37, but it seems I still have the same problem. Again, I can connect & authenticate just fine initially, but when reprompted after some period of time, it doesn't work.
I've tried contacting Cisco support, but it looks like I'm at 91 days since purchase and thus outside of my 90-day complimentary support, so they happily provided me with the premium support options just to have the honor of talking with them. Guess I shouldn't have spent so much time trying to figure this out myself.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Guest Access Not Secure

Nov 13, 2011

Purchased E4200 this week and did simple setup via CD setup (Cisco connect).  Set up main name and password. Cisco Connect assigned "-guest" to end of main name for the guest account.  Gave guest account its own password.  Both main and guest accounts were broadcasting OK -- but guest account was not secure and could be accessed without password.  (All software and firmware upgrades were done during initial setup).Reset the E4200 and restarted things from the CD setup.  Created main account, main account password, and guest password again.  In advanced settings, left basic wireless settings at initial settings, changed wireless secutiy to WPA2 Personal.  Still having the guest account being broadcast in unlocked status. (Have turned off guest access for now until I can get password protection for it).

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 Unstable Guest Connection?

May 14, 2013

Just installed a refurb EA4500 this past weekend after testing it for a week.  The regular wireless network is very stable, but not much faster than my single-band DLink  DIR655.  Guest network seems to drop out from two connected iPhones, and when the connection drops, you have to re-login and type in the guest password everytime.   The linksys firmware is up-to-date( Linksys smart wifi)and so are the iOS on the 2 iPhones.  Just to add, on my old DLink, the guest network comes up secured also, so when you type in the passcode, it remembers it next it comes in range unlike the Cisco, which requires login at a web interface.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 - Parent Controls Always On Over Guest Access?

Feb 11, 2013

EA4500 Is there any way to enable parent controls on everyone who logs in over guest access? We have a lot of youth who use the network, but we only give them guest access so that they can't access network machines. I enabled Parent Control, but I couldn't find a way to say "Parent Control enable for Guest Account".

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Local IP Of Provider Network?

Aug 3, 2012

In the settings menu, there is no l2tp in which it was possible to configure a local address of the router. It should be: is an option only for VPN server setup(, but where it takes a local address that my provder has gave me?  - it is not clear. At the same time in the status of the router receives a DNS correctly and the second address embarass me little bet DNS should be:

2) 80 252.130.254
first dns is correct, and second one looks like: he does not take a local setting of ip adress via DHCP?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 - Unknown Device On Network

Apr 9, 2012

I recently purchased a Linksys EA4500 Dual-Band N900 Router with Gigabit and USB. Everything set up great with no problems and after a day or 2 I managed to get all home devices connected (2 laptops, 2 printers, an iphone, 1 tv, 1 blu-ray, an old desktop, and a tablet). Everything was connected right and working and I installed the Linksys app on my iPhone which let me see what devices were connected and all that. Well, last night, an unknown device showed up as a connected device. It's labeled as: android_(insert string of characters) and has a MAC address. I've tried and tried to identify what this device is and I can't. Everything else on our network is still showing up independently of that device. I'm worried that someone using our connection and possibly putting our device security at risk. What can I do to A) try to identify what the device is and B) if it is an intruder, block it's access.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Network Share On Cisco EA4500

Jun 23, 2012

I have got a Cisco EA4500 recently installed and it's great. I was very excited about the USB part as I attached a WD hdd to share the media. All good apart for two issues for which I can't seem to find a solution:
1. Transfer speed: Playing a movie over wi fi from the attached HDD works fine. However, if I try to copy the avi file from my mac to the attached hdd or vice versa the transfer speed is around 1 - 2 Mb / sec. How I can improve the speed?
2. Can't write files on the HTF+ partition
My hdd has two partitions: 1 x NTFS and 1 x HTF+.When I try to copy a movie from my mac through the Wi Fi on the HDD it would not let me on the HTF+ partition although I logged it as an Admin. I say I don't have the priviledges. However, on the NTFS partition works fine.  Full r/w priviledges seem to work only on NTFS. Is there an issue with mac partitions?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Guest Network Via LAN?

I have the wireless guest network up and running just fine. But, I need to also connect to the router's quest network via one of the ethernet ports. Can I just give the LAN-conencted PC a 192.168.3.x static IP to access the guest network? I am assuming there is no VLAN functionality...
And even better, can I set up a DHCP relationship to that port? So that any device plugged into the port will get a IP on that subnet?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Manual Way To Configure Network Gear

Aug 4, 2012

I have had several Linksys and Cisco routers in the past, and I'm a network engineer.  My E3000 died after only 18 months so I had to run down and buy a new router, thus the EA4500.
I use the manual way to configure all my network gear.  Nothing on my network changed, except the router replacement.If I leave the router default address at the 192 range, DHCP will issue a IP address.  However, I do not use that range and after cdhanging the range, setting my start IP address, etc, I save everything and even tried rebooting the router to no avail.  The router will not issue a DHCP addrss if you change the default range.
I can manually configure my clients with a static IP and all is good, no issues at all.  I just can't get DHCP to work.  My E3000 was configured exactly the same way and worked just fine, well up until two days ago.I have tried upgrading to the latest router firmware, so I'm not on 2.0.37 and I did set the router back to Factory Defaults, rebooted, then configured it, and still no DCHP.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea4500 - One Device Not Connecting To Wifi Network

Feb 3, 2013

I just purchased a Linksys EA 4500.I set up the wifi properly, with laptops, tablets, smartphones and printer. The wifi network worked fine for a couple of days.But now one of the laptop "refuses" to see the Linksys wifi network. The other devices are still connected and running regularly.
The notebook that does not connect anymore is an ACER 5740DG with an Atheros Network adapter and Windows 7 installed. This notebook is otherwise running fine.At the beginning it was connecting ok and we never had any problem at all with the previous router Belkin_N+_7991AC, that I changed just for speed.
Now the Linksys network is simply not visible to such notebook in the "Available Connections List" that I get clicking on the WiFi icon in the bottom right, while a number of other wifi networks (not mine) are clearly visible. Of course I restarted the notebook properly. For one time I got the visibility of the Linksys, I entered the password and then it was not possible to see the network anymore.No error message from Smart WiFi software.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Guest Network Not Working

Jun 24, 2011

I cannot get the Guest Network feature to work.Even though Guest SSID is enabled, it does not show up on any devices attempting to connect. Manually connecting by entering the Guest SSID fails (not recognized). On devices with the primary 5 and 2.4 GHz configured they do see the third network but without SSID (unknown) and are also unable to connect to it manually using the SSID.I did not try this before 1.0.02. Have rebooted modem and verified all configs (multiple times). The network is live in an office and can't keep screwing with it or drastically changing its settings.
