Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 Multiple IP Addresses On Internet Interface?
Jan 23, 2013
I have verizon fios business line with 5 static IP addresses and am configured for ethernet wan. I can use EA6500 as the router instead of using Verizon's own router, however I can't figure out how to assign all 5 static IP addresses on internet interface. I have already assigned first IP to internet interface but don't see a way to add more IPs either in internet interface or from NAT section where I can create static NAT.
I currently have my EA6500 behind verizon fios router. I have 5 static IP addresses assigned to FIOS router, however the machines I want to connect to are behing EA6500. It's a dual NAT scenario:
Public IP - FIOS Router - 192.168.1.0/24 network - EA6500 - 192.168.2.0/24 network
What I would like to do is for each public IP address, I would like to forward traffic to a particular host on 192.168.2.0 network. I can easily configure FIOS router for static NAT and assign one internal IP (from 192.168.1.0 range) for each public IP. However, I don't see a way to assign multiple IPs from 192.168.1.0 network to EA6500 internet interface.
I don't want to use EA6500 as a bridge as it will pretty much reduce my EA6500 to a very expensive GigE switch.
Is this possible? Or should I replace it with something more useful like a business router? This is for my home so I would like to avoid buying an expensive business router.
I just bought a Linksys EA6500 (AC 1750). Now after a week, seems to stop rresponding at times and I am get 5+ MAC Addresses from 1 IP address. I have only one NIC installed and it is configured to have a static IP.
See attached screen capture. ( Server-PC, IP: 192.168.1.130)
how do I block IP/Internet Adresses for ALL users without adding the sites manually per user in the Parental Control panel? I want to block a certain IP/internet adress for all users but can't find this feature within my EA6500 anywhere?Is this a firmware bug? Has linskys forgotten that some sites want to blocked for all users and how do I do it all in one?
I have my other XBOXs connected to a 24 port switch but the one connected to the ea6500 directly gives me this moderate NAT issue. I thought this new router would be an upgrade to my old dlink but so far I get a new problem every day.I have reserved dhcp addresses for all the boxes and set up port triggering for the ports listed in several guides. But what else do I need to do? Is it likely I got a bad router?
I got the new EA6500. For the last few days I've noticed there are multiple devices showing under one device with different IP addresses. In the beginning they show up individually with their own device names, then somehow combine. Each device is different ie. computer, phone, DirecTV box, etc. I did a hard reset, re-flash and still it keeps happening.
Once your devices start showing up in your device list make a DHCP reservation for each device. (after confirming that no other devices are listed under it).
If you have a device that has multiple MAC & ip addresses under it you MUST first determine what the devices are listed & power-down before you can delete the device. Also note that some wired devices will still show as connected so you must have to either power down the device by pulling Th power cord OR disconnect the ethernet cable.
We have Cisco ASA 5505 box.We have a /29 subnet available.At this moment one of IP addresses in this rage is assigned to VLAN2 used for outside interface all outgoing traffic from VLAN10 (for employees) will go out using one IP, xxx.xxx.xxx.1all outgoing traffic from VLAN20 (for visitors) will go out using second IP, xxx.xxx.xxx.2all outgoing traffic from VLAN10 host yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy (mail server, webmail, ...) will go out using third IP, xxx.xxx.xxx.3all specified incomming traffic to xxx.xxx.xxx.3 will be NATted to internal host yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy in VLAN10 .The main purpose is to have specific public IP address for mail server only not to get to any black list,and to give visitors different outgoing IP address than for our internal users.
I am running the most recent firmware 1.1.28 released on Jan 2nd(ish) 2013 and if I try and access or configure my external Segate Freeagent 1.5 GB it essentially crashes my router whereby I cannot reach the internet nor the Admin console. I have to power cycle to be able to connect?
I recently bought the ea6500 router to upgrade from my last one. For the first few weeks, it worked ok though the wireless range often became unreliable if doors were shut. The biggest problem I'm having right now is that the internet has completely stopped working - both wired and wireless. I have hooked my laptop directly into my modem, and it has a good internet connection. However, when I plug my laptop into the router, I get no internet connection at all, and it is not currently producing a Wi-Fi signal at all. Instead, the power light keeps blinking rapidly. I have tried rebooting the modem and router several times and still no internet. Just the same blinking light. I can't even log into the smart wifi page to check the status of the router. My computer tells me there is no IP address for the router.
Got my new EA6500 on Friday. I can't connect to the internet with it.To start with, I have a cable modem that is connected directly to my desktop to verify I have a good internet connection. I do (can browse the web). Then, I disconnected the cable from my desktop and plugged it into the "internet" port on the EA6500. With a new cable, connected one end to the desktop and the other end to Port 1 on the router. Now I no longer have an internet connection.Went throught varioius sequences of rebooting the computer / router / cable modem with no change.
Then disconnected the cable that was pugged into "internet" on the router and plugged it back into the desktop -- internet service restored. So, I have a good connection to the web.
When I had the router in the config, I was able to go to IP 192.168.1.1 and see the routers setup screens, so the connection between the computer and the router was good.I also was able to try the wireless on the router by connecting my iPhone. Iphone connected to the router (joined the network), but couldn't get to the internet.
It's as if the internet connection withing the router is broken.I even did a reset of the router which didn't work. Using this new router via hard wires should work out of the box with no setup necessary.
I did also try running the install software to see if it made a difference. Setup detected no internet, but I selected to continue on without the internet connection. Software guided me to setting up my wireless network (choose SSID, etc) and that completed. Was able to connect with my iPhone to the newley found SSID, but still no internet.
I've a problem with the internet speed of my ADSL line(20Mega). Now I've the following components: D-link DSL-320 B (modem)+Cisco Linksys EA6500. If I start a Speed test the result its only 4M in download, while i remove the router and i connect my Pc directly to modem, the speed test results its 13-14M.
I recently buyed a Linksys EA6500 wireless router. I accessed [URL] to access the settings interface of the router. Went to "Connectivity Internet Settings" and chose type of the internet connection as PPPoE. Entered the username and password, clicked ok.
I connected EA6500 internet port to actiontec router provided by Verizon fios. I don't have any other way to connect as FIOS connection is coax to actiontec modem. I must take a drop from actiontec to internet port on EA6500.
With that said, I can't get EA6500 to work, it keeps saying no internet. The only way I can get it to work is when I set it to bridge mode. This makes my EA6500 a dumb switch/access point. I didn't spend $200 for a switch. I need to use advanced features offered by this router but I can't until this problem is fixed. I made sure I am running latest version of firmware (126.96.36.199856).
I have reset my fios router as well as ea6500 to factory defaults multiple times.
Today I was having a conversation with my Cisco Academy teacher from a few years back, and we couldn't figure this out.I am getting an internet connection via Verizon FiOS. Instead of giving me an ISR, they're going to just give me an ethernet cable. Here's what I want to do with it.
This cable is going to be plugged into a 1900 series router. Connect to that will be a 48 port switch. Connected to that will be multiple servers to be used for web hosting, email, databases, etc. My ISP is providing me with 13 public addresses, however, it is not my own unique subnet.
Here comes the question; how would I set this up? The way I was originally thinking was to assign one IP to fa0/0, a second to fa0/1, and then assign the fa0/1 address as the default gateways for all the hosts on the inside. But then I realized that it won't let me have the same network on 2 ports.
Is it possible to have multiple public IP addresses that are from different subnets going through one router? I have been told that this is not possible with most routers and that I would have to spend a lot of money on a router to be able to do it. I am still not totally clear on what defines a subnet even after reading up on them. What I am trying to achieve:
-My office has 10 computers.
-All would be connected to one router.
-My internet service provider has provided me with 10 public IP addresses, that are all very varied (which I asked for)
My PC will connect just fine, but it is the only device on my network that the router will allow internet access. The router will allow other devices (DVR, laptop, nook) to connect to it, but won't allow those devices to connect to the internet. Each device will show the same error, - "connected to linksys - no internet". I've reset the router many times with no results.
I would like to know how to setup QOS on the linksys EA6500 wireless router. I know about the media prioritization settings, however, thats not enough for me. I would like to setup upload and download speed limits for certain devices on my network, like, say 300kbps download for a certain device at all times.
provide me with the latest (or one) release of 1.1.27 firmware for the EA6500. I am deeply disappointed in the last firmware upgrade and due to security and sudden lack of certain, or let's say all, functionality in bridge mode I need to downgrade or wait for an upgrade where that's fixed, but most likely not soon, or ever. Where could I find the firmware downgrade.
I have an EA6500 which obviously has 4 Gigabit ethernet ports for my home network, but I need a DSL modem to get it working.What's the maximum speed current modems can supply from the Internet to my router, is there such a thing as a Gigabit capable DSL modem these days or am I dreaming ? Is it possible to even get Gigabit dowload speeds via DSL or would I have to go cable to achieve something like that ?My main concern is I don't want to buy a modem that will slow down or 'throttle' the capabilities of the new router I've just purchased or have I got the wrong idea ?
I would like to use the EA6500 in my network - but nor as primary router (or in fact routing at all). I would have thought, one could simply tell the device to use a particular gateway, but it does not seem to be easy. I have used many other home routers as combined switch/AP/USB-drive (latest a D-Link DIR-655), but the EA6500 seems very picky. The "easy" "Smart Wi-Fi" setup requires internet access through the WAN port - and that divides my home network, which then have two zones which cannot really "talk" to each other. Alternatively, I can reset the device and access it directly on the IP (initially 192.168.1.1). But then I can change only LAN and WLAN settings. Stuff like Guest Access, USB-devices etc. won't work. Do anybody have success with this device without using the WAN port and the DHCP server?
I have a new EA6500 and am failing at getting ftp to work. I have updated the firmware.My ftp folder is on a Seagate USB Go-Flex drive attached directly to the router via USB. I have set up shares which I can see and access via my computer which is attached to the router.FTP is configured to use port 21 and UTF-8.
I have a pair EA4500s that I am swapping out for a pair of EA6500s. One EA6500 is a router. The 2nd EA6500 is set as a bridge and us being used as an Access Point about 200ft and two floors above the main EA6500 router. The two units are connected via DECA (200MB Ethernet over DirecTV cable - an alternative for others with a cable provider is called MOCA). So, basically two EA6500s serving as two Access Points on opposite sides of the house and all wireless networks on different channels but all sharing the same SSID. Everything works GREAT except for one unusual issue.
The issue is with wired or wireless clients. If I try to use my PUBLIC address with port number to address a local client on the local network inside the NAT network the NAT redirection fails. In other words if I use 172.16.16.8 for a local web cam while inside my network from an iPhone or PC all works great. If I use the external public address, however, the connection times out. If I pop out the EA6500 doing the routing/NAt and swap it with the old EA4500 with basically the same config as the EA6500 everything works again. The EA6500 and the EA4500 are configured identical for the most part and with the EA4500 as the main router NAT redirection works great but with the EA6500 NAT redirection fails. I have the firewall setting to FILTER NAT REDIRECTION unchecked so that's not the problem.
Seems very odd.... and only seems to happen with the EA6500..... the work around is to use the local IP address when the client is on the inside and the public address when on the outside, but what a pain that is....
Any work around to enable reverse NAT or similar functionality on the EA6500? I recently upgraded from a Dlink that did support reverse NAT to my internal devices through a dynamic dns service. Now I have to know the IP address for all the devices.
i setup my new EA6500 with the ethernet cable from my cable modem plugged into the EA6500, but with my old E4200 still switched on, but disconnected, i seemed to have ended up with a ip address of 10.250.27.47, not the 192.168.1.1 i was expecting, which i had with the E4200, my question is, is 10.250.27.47 something i should expect with the EA6500, or do i need to do a factory reset on the EA6500 and start again with everything else switched off as a precaution ?
I set up EA6500. All kinds of problems with anything on the 2.4 MHz band. My wireless desktop on the 5.0 MHz band was flawless. So I ran Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector (freeware). The router is transmitting two 2.4 MHz signals! One is the SSID I set up and named. The other one is identical in every way except that the BSSID is slightly different. It is a non-broadcasted SSID that shows up on every device as "Other Network." I was on the phone with Cisco Support tonite, and they were great as usual but had no answer. If you change the channel on the 2.4 MHz band, the shadow network also changes to the same channel (this blew the Tech's mind). We reset the router to factory settings and started over. They are calling me back tomorrow. This router has great features on paper, but so far, it has not delivered.
The only way I could get my EA6500 to work as auto DHCP to my Roadrunner Motorola SBV5220 Surfboard cable modem was to disable IPv6 support on the router. It appears that the EA6500 attempts to issue the DHCP request for address assignment from the modem using IPv6. I could see the status of "Connecting" for IPv6 in the Diagnosis Reports and it would hang. Once I disabled IPv6, the modem assigned an IPv4 address and everything worked fine. However, am I giving up any functionality by having to do this? I bought this router and the WUMC710 Universal Media Connector for the 5GHz connectivity for streaming and just wondered if I'm impacting UMC performance or any other functions of the router by having to disable IPv6.
I just bought the EA6500 last week. Had to RMA it on Monday and got the new one today. The issue still persists. The power light is constantly blinking and my computer is unable to obtain an IP address from it. I contacted tech support and was unable to get the issue resolved so I had it exchanged believing it was defective. The new one does the same thing. When I connect my computer to it, the light on my Ethernet port stays a solid orange instead of green like it does for my usual router. The Cisco light is constantly blinking.
I have two USB drives connected to my EA6500. When I use the ip to connect to them everything works just fine, but I cant map the drives. If I access map drives, I cant do anything with the files. It looses connection all the time.
