Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Setup WRT320N As Bridge

Aug 16, 2011

I want to setup the following:
Internet through DSL-Thompson TG 789 VN router ---> several yards --> Linksys WRT320N --> wired computer netwerk                                           |             |with   printer                                
|                                                                                             |
---> Wireless Netwerk -->   laptops / phones       <---     (WAN depending on strongest signal)
---> several servers
The Thompson does the DHCP and routing. It is the gateway through the internet, IP (mask can't replace the thompson since it is delivered by my provider. SSID = BertB I want to achieve that all the compuers / laptops / phone and printer are in one network and can communicate with each other So the only possibility, as far as I can see, is to set up the Linksys as a bridge.
I have to do the following at the Linksys but have some questions as mentioned below:

SSID = BertB (the same)
channel = different from the channel used by Thompson
DHCP = off
IP = fixed (
gateway =


how the thompson and the Linksys will build a connection with each other, or will this happen automatically through the above setup?Do I have to put the mac address of the thompson in the Linksys and/or vice versa?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using WET610N And WRT320N As Bridge Within Home Network?

Mar 5, 2010

I have a small home network, in which the DSL modem is some way away from the room in which I do my work. Currently, I use a pair of WAP54G access points to bridge between the two locations, and everything works OK, if slowly.Today, I bought a WRT320N router and a WET610N bridge to replace the access points, but I having a real problem configuring them to work. I think the basic problem is with the IP addresses that they use. The current configuration is:
DSL Modem -> Access Point -- several yards -- Access Point -> PC
and I want to go to:
DSL Modem -> WRT320N -- several yards -- WET610N -> PC
I guess my basic question is this a reasonable idea or should I be using something different for the WRT320N end? I don't want to change the basic IP address subnet (192.168.1.*) and I want to keep the DSL modem as the default gateway ( When I installed the WRT320, it assigned itself an IP address of and the WET610N an IP address of, and I think the DSL modem also assigned the WRT320 an IP address of, so I am a little confused as to which IP addresses I should be setting where.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Use Both Bands At Once?

Apr 25, 2013

I have a WRT320N, firmware version 1.0.05., Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, and a Hewlett Packard laptop.I would like to utilize both bands on my router at the same time for internet access, so that I can have the one my kids use shut down at a certain time but mine stay up.If not, what's the closest I can get, even if I have to purchase additional items to do so? Do I have to manually turn their band off when I want it off? And can I even have both bands in use at the same time?
I looked at my Cisco online info by access the IP address. I see the Access Restrictions tab. Can I even set usage by specific computer? If so how do I do that?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Laptop Cannot Connect To Wrt320n

Jul 27, 2012

Just installed linksys wrt320n.  Desktop and one laptop (wireless) connect.  Both windows 7.  A second laptop (Vista) errors out with message "the selected data rate is not correct".  This laptop sees the router (since I see the router name and it validates the passphrase) but I cannot ping the router.  I saw two messages on this site suggesting to enable WMM and use security WPA2.  I have verified that both of these are so set.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N And Internal VPN Server

Dec 14, 2009

I just bought a Linksys 320N router to replace another competitors router. I am trying to connect to my VPN server from outside my network. I have the external ip to my network. I setup the new 320N router just like the old router. set dmz ip to internal ip of vpn server, set port forwarding to 1723, both, internal ip of vpn server, I have a way to test the vpn while i am inside my network. So, I can watch the VPN server log and see the request come into the server and it times out with the Linksys 320 N hooked up. If I have the old router hooked up, the vpn establishes a connection.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N - IPad Can't Connect To It

Jul 24, 2011

I have a WRT320N router with firmware version 1.0.01 build 008.  I just got an iPad and while it can find my router, I can't access the WiFi when I enter my password.  I can use the router with my laptop so I know the connection and password are ok.I've seen two administrators on here suggest the same thing.  And one person responded that it worked.  The identical directions were: 

Try changing some advanced wireless settings on the router.Connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable. Open the setup page of the router.Click on wireless tab and set the configuration view to manual. Change the wireless channel to 11. Save the settings.Go to wireless tab and click on Advanced wireless settings.Change Beacon interval to 75, RTS threshold to 2307 and fragmentation threshold to 2306. Save the settings.Try to connect to the wireless network again and see if that works.
1 - I think my computer already is connected to the router with the Ethernet cable - I mean there is an Ethernet cable attached to both my computer and my router - in slot 1 on the router

2 - the only thing I know how to access is the Linksys EasyLink Advisor.  What and where is the setup page of the router?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N WAN Connection Becomes Slow?

May 20, 2009

I have a WRT320N router. It is hooked to a Comcast cable modem (Motorola SB5101). After using it for a few days, my Internet connection becomes very slow and I have to reset the router. Generally I get download speeds of 10+ Mbps, but then it slows to about 1 Mbps or less. One time I was only getting 300 Kbps.I'm using a wired connection when this happens, so wireless is not the issue. Also, there is no firmware update available for my router; 1.0.01 was already on it. The only settings that I've changed besides the password are related to the wireless.As soon as I unplug the router and plug it back in, it's fine again for a few days. At first I thought it might be my cable Internet connection, but because I'm not having to reset the cable modem?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N - Devices Only Connect At 54mbps?

Feb 24, 2012

I just installed a WRT320N for someone's home network, with the intent of providing better speed for network printing.
Unfortunately, all four of his n-capable Windows computers will only connect at 54mbps. Four different computers (Win7, Vista, XP), each with a different brand/model of n-capable network adapter.
I suppose I could try setting the wireless to n-only instead of "mixed". However, he's got a couple g-only devices as well, so that wouldn't work.
I tried updating the firmware to latest/greatest - no effect.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Has Gigabit Network Backwards

Aug 29, 2011

I have a Linksys WRT320N Wireless Router and I am having an issue where it seems like gigabit (10/100/1000) ready computers are getting fast ethernet (10/100) speeds and fast ethernet computers/devices are receiving gigabit speeds. What I mean is the computers that are gigabit ready and are using cat6 cables are showing green icons on the Linksys WRT320N router and my network switch, which is only 10/100 ready and uses a cat5e cable to connect to the router, shows a blue icon indicating it is connected at gigabit speeds. Is the manual incorrect and green icons really mean gigabit speeds?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Connecting Two Gigabit Routers?

May 4, 2012

I have what should be simple.  Home network on cable.  WRT320N is main router cabled to desktop with GB card.  It is hard-wired to a Netgear WNR3500L (also gigabit).  That router is hard-wired to a desktop with GB card.  For testing I connected a second machine hard-wired to the WRT320N with a 10/100 card.  All machines recognized cards properly at correct speed.  I ran LAN Speed Test between machines.  Speeds were comparable between machines regardless of cards.  GB -> GB was mid-30's write, mid-80's read with GB -> 10/100 a couple of ticks slower but not significantly.  The LED's on both routers will show different color if GB connection and both showed GB for the desktop connection but not the interconnect between the routers.  The routers are connected at about 100' with CAT5E and straight-through.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Automatic Channel Selection?

I am working with a WRT320N for some weeks now, but I don't get the fact that 40Mhz channel width is only allowed for Automatic channel selection.I keep losing connection and the channel keeps changing.I want an option to change the channel manually (like in every good WLAN router!!), also with N data rate (40Mhz channel width).I know how to select the best channel, so why aren't I able to change it the way I like it?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 / WRT320N Calling With SIP Not Working

Feb 13, 2012

Just recently bought a Linksys E4200 router and it's been rocking so far!  I upgraded from a WRT320N. However it seems that calling with SIP (using my Voip Buster account) doesn't work anymore.I don't seem to be able to register with the Voip service. Port is the standard 5060 (if my memory serves me well, I'm not at home now) and I already activated on the router the special tick for Voip ALG calling. Router is upgraded to the latest firmware and it's the V1 router.With all of the above, I still can't connect using SIP to VoiceBuster. It worked like a charm with the WRT320N so it's something with the router?.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Used As Simple Gigabit Switch?

Dec 4, 2009

I've been using WRT320N few days now and I am happy with it so far! It's not overheated as many people reported and performance is also great (wifi as well as gigabit ports). I tested all functions (NAT, Advanced Wireless Settings, Port Forwarding, Access Restrictions...) - all working great, but I am little stuck on the easiest one - configure it temporarily as regular gigabit switch with an IP address: I put my WAN cable and LAN cables in the 1-4 ethernet ports. NAT, DHCP and Firewall are disabled in the router. I have DHCP server in my network that is assigning IP addresses based on MAC address. In "Setup" > "Basic Setup" > "Router IP" I would like to set up automatic configuration - DHCP, but it is not possible, so I just type the same IP address that It should get from the DHCP server (in this case Does all 1-4 ethernet ports have the same MAC address (in this case 00:25:9C:4D:16:86)? Everything is working fine, my computer's IP addresses are succesfully assigned (as well as wifi devices) from DHCP server in my network, but I feel like WRT320N's address is not assigned - the problem is I can't connect to router's administration under There is no IP restrictions for remote management.
