Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Optimize WRT-400n For Internet TV

Jul 29, 2011

I have been using a WRT-400n for a while with 2 pc's .. a tower close to it, and a laptop about 50 ft away in another room. As far a I can tell, I'm only using the 2.4GHz band on channel 11.We just added a Sony Bravia HD TV and a Sony Blu-ray VD player (which is really, as far as I can see, a cool internet access device which happens to play DVD's). Out favorite use is to watch TV shows and movies from Amazon. Problem is, streaming is very patchy, and sometimes what Amazon calls "connection speed" (which I think is really network bandwidth) gets so low thta the buffering fails, and we lose whatever we're watching.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Can't Connect With Laptops

May 31, 2008

I have two computers on hard line and two laptops. All computers on the line work fine and flawlessly. But when I try to connect the laptops to the computer, they say there's a problem with the certificate. Both detect the connection, and with strong enough signal strength. I've tried WPA and WEP encryption methods, and disabling encryption methods. All had no change. I believe the problem lies with this Wi-Fi Protected Setup stuff, which I have no clue as to what the hell it's supposed to do. I've tried disabling it by turning it to manual, which all computers then lose internet connection entirely. Browsing the FAQ's, I havn't found a solution. I've been working on this thing for a solid 7 and a half hours straight, and phone support is trying to make me configure static IPs, which proved extremely inconvenient in the past.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Drive Not Seen On Xp Laptops?

Mar 12, 2012

I just purchased an E4200, primarily to connect my Free Agent drive to for network access.  The router has V. 2.0.36 installed, drive is fully shared, but I am unable to see the drive when I attempt to map it on any of my XP laptops.  When I perform discovery, it finds the router, but is unable to see the drive.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Laptops Can't Connect Through Wi-Fi With E4200

Mar 11, 2012

I have set up my WAG320N with my E4200v1 successfully. The problem is that my laptops can't connect through WiFi with the E4200 router, but only with the WAG320N (wireless). Since it is the first time I set up a network alone I possible have made mistakes and that's why I can't connect to my router wirelessly. My desktop pc will successfully connect to both of my routers (wired)! My devices won't (DS,Laptops). I have WEP security in my WAG320N (because this is the only one my DS card can connect to) and in my E4200 I want to use WAP2 to connect my 2 laptops. I have made nothing more than setting them up and both of my evices are new.
It is for home use, both of my devices are updated to their latest firmware and the laptops won't identify the problem and will ask to restart the router. (I did many restarts both on my routers, PC, laptops)

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Can't Get Internet

Apr 16, 2013

I have a 2wire modem connected to the Internet port of my WRT54GS which is connected to a D link DSS 16+ Fast Ethernet switch. Without the switch, I can connect wired and wirelessly to my WRT54GS. However, when I put connect my any port of my D link switch to ports 1 - 5 of WRT54GS, I loose internet all together either wired/wireless to the router or wired to the D-link switch.I wonder why the IP Address will change as I understand that the switch is just a pass through switch.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Will Not Allow To Set Up Encryption

Dec 21, 2011

I'm having a very difficult time getting my WRT54GS to work with my Westell 6100 modem. I've been bouncing around gathering info, and what I've learned is that the goofy way CenturyLink tech support told me to hook up my old wired router (modem line into outgoing (LAN) router port) is because the Westell 6100 is a "smart modem/router". Therefore, when I run the Linksys setup CD, it sees the modem as a router, and won't properly configure. I've also learned that the Westell modem can be "dumbed down" into simply a modem by putting it into "bridge mode", which is where I'm at right now - trying to get it reset to factory defaults and resetting the connection type from PPPoE to Bridge. In the meantime, I also reset the WRT54GS to factory defaults, and now I've got another problem: the router will not allow me to set up encryption. The default setting is "Disabled", and when I click the down arrow and try to make any selection at all (preferred selection is WPA2 Personal), it reverts to Disabled. I've also tried to change the router's IP address to (and alternately to, so it won't conflict with the modem's IP, and it freezes up every time I try.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 Unable To Connect One Of Laptops To Internet

Mar 24, 2011

I have a new Linksys E2000, I was unable to connect one of my laptops to the internet, so I decided to call support with the problem, after 45min and not results, find out that the E2000 do not support the Atheros AR 5007, they told me that I need to get a new driver for my adapter. Fine but Cisco doesn’t have a Driver update for this problem or how to fix it, or at least send you a link where to get the fix.

Linksys Wireless Router :: VPN Connection Failed When Using WRT54GS

Sep 12, 2011

Currently I have Verizon DSL and which supplied me with a Westell 7500 modem/wireless router.  I am also connecting a Linksys WRT54GS (firmware Version: 7.2.08) to the Westell 7500.
When I connect via cable or wireless to Linksys WRT54GS I am not able to establish VPN connection. I get the error “Error 619: A connection to the remote computer could not be established. So the port used for this connection was closed”.
However, when I connect via cable or wireless to Westell 7500 I am able to connect to VPN.
I tried resetting the Linksys WRT54GS to factory settings and reconfigured but no success to VPN.
At work we have a Windows 2003 setup with VPN Role on it and on my laptop I am using the built in VPN connection within Windows 7.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using Old WRT54GS As A Range Extender?

May 1, 2012

I first want to say I "think" I might be posting in the wrong forums for this question, but because I'm not really sure what the proper terminology for this is, I thought it best to ask here.
I have recently upgraded my router for my home network from an old Linksys WRT54GS G router, to a new E2500 N router.  I have heard/read that it is possible to reconfiqure my old router to act as a range extender for my network but I am unclear how to do so.  I think this may be the same thing as an access point, but all the FAQ's I've found seem to have this work as a solo device, not as a device on existing network.  I have my e2500 setup with the modem in my study and broadcasting from there, and would like to use my old G router set up as a range extender to be located in the front living room area and picking up the network signal and rebroadcasting from there without a modem or computer attached.
