Linksys Wireless Router :: Possible Remote Access To E3000 Unit
Jan 26, 2012
For a while now I've been thinking of setting up a (hopefully) secure remote access from a location outside of my local network. Since I'm going to be away from where I usually live for about six months due to the location of my Course that I'm going to study, I want to be able to remotely access the router if something were to happen. Up until this point, I've been doing the management through a Teamviewer 6/7 remote access with my home computer and connecting from the inside IP address (Example: 192.168.1.1), but it's going to be taken away so I wouldn't be able to do that this year. Is it possible to set up a secure telnet on a Linksys E3000 Wireless Unit that way I can control it through Command Prompt, or would I have to set up Remote Management Access to use the unit outside the network through programs like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox?
I have an e300 router with my external hdd connected via the USB port. I am trying to figure out how to access the hdd remotely. I am not trying to get to it through remote desktop access. I have my laptop that I take with me when away from home but I would like to be able to access the hdd via Internet.
I have a Cisco RV082 and I would like to connect my E3000 to it and use it as just a wireless access point. Is it possible to do this with the E3000 so the RV082 is providing the routing functionality?
I am using firmware version 1.0.04 build 6.I am having a few issues viewing the log; the incoming, outgoing and security logs are completely blank, the DHCP log is the only one populated.Even though it's populated, the time stamp displays the date as Jan 1 1970, time appears fine if I use UDT (Time is set to Mountain), the Router Status correctly displays the current time for my location.I vaguely remember the other logs worked with a previous firmware 1.0.03? Don't recall if the Date Time stamp was working correctly.
I have comcast cable and a Linksys E3000 that has been pretty reliable. I have a website that I use to send some information to. Friday morning was the last time I could connect to this page. I cannot hit it via web, ssh, or ftp or ping. I can view it at work and on my 3g internet. But no more from home. I have determined that it has to be the router (straight connection into cable modem and I'm in). I've reboot the router and even restored to factory spec, neither works.
I have access restrictions set up for certain wireless devices in my home that the kids use to kick them off at 11 pm and keep them off all night. where I am running into a problem is I want to block these same devices from downloading anything without my permission my son downloads everything he sees, Comcat has already threatened to kick us off their service if we go over 250 gb bandwidth use in a month again. so I want to configure something in the router that will block all downloads for specific wireless devices. with the access restrictions I have set up I used the mac address not just the ip so they have no way around it I constantly monitor what is connected. I am using the stock firmware as well
I replaced my old Linksys WRT54G wireless router with the new E3000 wireless router. The installation was a breeze, but not what followed henceforth. I was able to access the internet on my wireless desktop/laptop/Netflix ROKU player/WD TV live media player, but lost access to all the network shares. I spent a lot of useless time with Linksys chat support and phone support, where they said their responsibility is only getting the internet working. They said they are not responsible for file and printer sharing issues, and suggested I use a third-party paid support package to resolve my issues. Over and above spending a hefty amount for the lates top of the line E3000 router, I was not going to shell out additional money for support.
Thinking that it could probably be due to some Windows XP firewall/anti-virus (McAfee) issues, I disconnected the E3000 and connected the old WRT54G back again. Lo and behold, everything started working fine again. I could access the shared folders of my desktop (to which my router is attached) and printer, from the wireless laptop/desktop/media player just as before without any problems. I then switched back to the E3000 and lost the shares again. So I have come to the conclusion, there is definitely some setting within the E3000 that is preventing the file and printer sharing. I just can't figure out what it could be, and am at a point of returning it back to the store as defective. The extra N-speed is useless to me if my devices can't access the network shared content.Also, I tried to set up the UPnP media server feature of the E3000 by attaching USB storage and configuring it via the Linksys web based utility, but my media player is unable to access the content.
I have my router setup fine to the internet, as well as the media server. I can't figure out how to access the hard drive from my laptop, however. The manual says put 192.168.1.1 in the address field of windows explorer, but it just gives me the "Setup" page for the router.
I needed the Guest access of wi-fi setup that LinkSysys routers provided. I don't need the router/modem i just want to have wi-fi access point. I'm an advanced user and i can work with manual setup etc.I tried to do a manual setup of the router, i changed the IP address to mask my network and enable wi-fi and worked BUT the guest access option is NOT available unless you use the stupid CISCO connect software.
Now the cisco connect software IS NOT working or complete the setup if you don't connect it through the router and gain Internet access which is IMPOSSIBLE for me to accomplish as my modem is connected to a firewall device and we are using static DSL options with PPPoE and usernameme/password. There is no way i can get cisco connect to load properly as it always "fixes my connection trying to gain Internet access".Is there any solution on manually properly setup this router and take full advantages of it capabilities or should i return it ?
I have an E3000 Dual Band. Currently, I have 3 laptops and two 360s on our network. They work fine. Up until last week so did my other kid's computers. They came home from college and attempted to get on our network unsuccessfully. In their network and sharing center, both their computers say under view your active networks: unidentified network (public network). Access type: No network access. Connections: has the correct network name information. When they attempt to access the network with the correct password, they show 4 bars of reception and a message of limited access (along with the above message). I did a little checking and found that our router info differs from their auto configuration. Our IPv4 starts with 192 not 169 like thiers. Also, the subnet masks are different. Also, they have no info in the IPv4 default Gateway, IPv4 DNS Server, and IPv4 WINS Server. Finally, my wife tried to acces the network with an ebook reader. It shows secured WPA2, but won't access it.
Internet policy access on my Linksys E3000. I am trying to block facebook.com to a particular ip address in my office. This what I did. Logged in to control panel clicked on access restriction. Clicked on add. Gave it a name. Clicked the applies to drop down box and selected by ip address. Unchecked the block all internet access. Typed facebook down in the window below. Saved.Not blocking access.
I can now access my router config pages when connected to my ATT router. However, I cannot seem to access the Internet when connected to my e3000; I just time out. I also have difficulties just connecting to my e300 for some reason. I have been connected a couple of times where i could access the Internet but it was only for a few minutes and it was very slow.I can't seem to put the router in the DMZ because the ATT router will only DMZ a DHCP-enabled device and the e3000 has a static IP (192.168.1.253). I have tried running the PING and Traceroute diagnostics and both just come back with Unknown Host no matter what URL i enter. The status page also appears as if the e3000 is not properly talking to the ATT router. Under the Internet Connection area it shows Connection Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP then 0s for IP address, subnet, and gateway. the DNS entries are empty and the MTU shows 1500 and the DHCP Lease Time is also empty. i am all ears and willing to try whatever. But i just want to be able to connect to my e3000 so i can utilize the wireless n internally and connect a 2TB external drive to share. But I also want to be able to get out to the Internet when i am connected to the device.
I can not access my Linksys E3000 router via https://192.168.1.1.Before this mishap, I was able to gain access to my Linksys E3000 router via http://192.168.1.1 and/or the Cisco Connect software application on Windows 7. Yesterday, I went into my router's administration page and disabled http, and enabled https. I then closed out all browsers, restarted them and entered https://192.168.1.1
After that, I learned quickly I made a huge mistake to make these changes. I simply can not access my router admin wired or wirelessly. Accessing the internet works great, but router admin page is a no go.Firefox and IE states, "There is a problem with this website's security certificate." and was unable to proceed.Firefox even gave me the option to accept a security exemption to proceed, but that failed.
I have also tried using the Cisco Connect utility, and that also failed. I have taken these steps and not been able to access my router's admin page.I don't want to take the last final resort to reset my router and re-enter my settings again. I know I saved the router's backup file somewhere, but can't find it.Is there another way for me to gain access via https with http disabled? All I want to do now is go back in and change it back to enable http access.
Using Cisco Connest I set up a password for guest access. It will function for a time then suddenly become insecure. Sometimes it will function for a month, sometimes a week. I have to reset the Unit to factory defaults each time and began again.
I have had numerous issues with my E3000 since I got about two months ago and they have all been resolved with the exception of this new one that popped up today.
My Samsung Blu-ray player is connected firectly via ethernet cable to the router. When it's on, I lose all conenctivity to the router with my wireless devices including three PC's, a PS3, two iPhones, one iPad, one Samsung Smart TV, one XBOX 360 and an Onkyo Receiver. When I say that I lose connectivity, I don't mean that I lose access to the Internet. My PC's see the network but cannot connect to it, the same goes for the Apple devices. The moment I shut off the Samsung BD player it kicks right back on and works normally. Until today, this never occurred.
I contacted Tech Support and they had never heard of this happening before. They suggested that I change the ethernet cable which I did while the unit was on and it worked until I turned the BD player off and turned it back on again. I also tried switching ports to no avail. Alos all of the software is up to date on both the router and the BD player.
I switched from comcast to att uverse. I was happy about the guest-access feature of E3000 when using the comcast, where I can directly connect my e3000 to the modem (basically you can see two network, one is XXX, the other is XXX-guest). However, the ATT uverse has a gateway that combines the modem and router together, in order to use my e3000 instead of the built-in router of the gateway, I have done a LAN-to-LAN connection and I can access internet without any problem. But in this case, I can not enable my guest-access feature. When I use Cisco Connect to set up e3000, it says "cannot connect to your router". how to set up the guess-access feature of e3000 when using ATT uverse.
I just purchased an E-3000 and when I log into the user interface it seems changing pages and saving settings takes forever. I click on a section in the router menu and it takes what seems like 30 seconds for the page to change or accept the new settings. It's not my browser it's definitely a Linksys Router issue. I updated to the latest firmware and latest Cisco Connect software as well. Is this slow user interface a normal thing with these routers?
I tried all methods: Cisco Connect (on Vista), http and https, but none works. However, the router seems function correctly. My laptop can acquire DHCP address and browse via the router. But I just cannot connect to the router to perform Admin tasks.Problem: when I launch CiscoConnect: the GUI shows "Cannot access your router", even though I am using the router to browse the net wirelessly and wirely. Using browser to navigate to http://192.168.1.1 and https://192.168.1.1 also give me cannot access error!
We have the E3000 Router and the guest internet access DOES NOT work. We occasionally repair other people's PC's and I seriously do not want to allow access to our home network. Recently, we are trying to access through guest, on a Win 7 Dell Notebook. It takes the passcode but no internet connection.
Within the Internet Access Policy section of the browser based utility, is it possible to limit access for a specific device (PC) to LAN only (not allow any traffic to external internet)? I see that you can block internet access for a specific machine, however I didn't know if this was inclusive of LAN as well.If not, is there another way to achieve this via the E3000 or should I be looking for a solution on the specific PC itself?
I have an E3000 that I am just setting up.I have two issues:
1> I am replacing a WRT110. I had the old router set with a static IP address supplied by my ISP. I configured the E3000 with the same address and I cannot access the internet. Are there any tricks to setting this up on an E3000?
2> As configured I there is a guest network setup. BUT when I access the router I don't see the tab to be able to configure it.
I am running the e3000 as an access point.. My iphone and ipad connect to it seamlessly. After a few hours to days, they are no longer recognized by the router. Nothing I reset on the phone or ipad makes any difference. The only solution I have found is to re-boot the router. They then re-connect on their own.
I purchased a WRT150N in early Dec 07. I had a number of problems with the unit disconnecting from wired and wireless connections erratically anywhere from 1/2 hr to 10 hrs. of operation. Troubleshoot thru Linksys chat. Ended up replacing router. Now I am having the same problem with replacement router. I've updated my windows XP, SP2, updated Ethernet driver and manually reconfigured router per Linksys advise. Wife and my laptops have N adapters, primary PC is wired in. It seems to disconnect all connections at same time, totally random. The only way to reconnect is to power down router for a few seconds and then power up.
I am trying to troubleshoot my own router (Linksys) issues with using Lync and accessing some sharepoint sites that are internal to my company's network. I am connecting to the Internet using a Linksys router (WRT400N). When I have my work laptop using RESCUE GFE hardwired directly to the modem - and then connecting to VPN - I can connect to Lync and work normally. However, when I move connection via the router - I can no longer connect to Lync nor access some Sharepoints. I can access VPN fine but with Lync I get an error stating "Your Lync account does not allow access from outside your organization's network. Please connect to your organization's network and try again. However, I am connected via the VPN.this connection worked with a prior laptop using WinXP (I am no on Win7) and the connection thru router and using VPN worked with Communicator.I unfortunately had to reset my router - so I cannot recall if there were port settings established from the last time I had to set up the network. I didn't save the configuration; note to self - save configuration in future.
I'm using a Linksys WRT54G in my home and I have it set up to allow me to connect remotely (VPN and RDP) from work. I do this every day and it works perfectly. The problem I'm having, though, is that every morning it doesn't work until my wife wakes up her laptop. After that it works fine, whether her laptop is on or off. It behaves as if the router is "asleep," and when she generates some local network activity, it wakes up, thus allowing me remote access.
I believe it's a router issue and not a computer issue because not only does it affect VPN and RDP, but even the router's remote management interface is unavailable until this happens.
Some more details about my home setup. I have a fixed IP address assigned to me by my ISP . All computers connect to the router wireless VPN and RDP is routed to a desktop computer running XP SP3 that is always on (it never goes to sleep or hibernates)The router is enabled as a DHCP server (192.168.0.2 thru 11)The desktop computer is set up with a fixed IP address (192.168.0.100)The router is set up to forward VPN and RDP traffic to the desktop . Here's some screenshots that may be useful.
Basic Setup Port Range Forward Management
Pretty much every other setting is defaulted. Like I said at the start, my setup works perfectly and I'm very happy with it. I just can't figure out why every morning it doesn't work until my wife uses her laptop?
When I'm at work, hers is the only computer on the local network getting assigned an IP by the router. Until she turns on her laptop, the DHCP client list is empty. Could it be that the router needs at least one connected device assigned an IP by its DHCP service in order for it to receive external connections?
I have a Linksys E1200 router.My problem is I have installed a camera system that allows remote viewing.I cannot access the system through the E1200 I am not very knowledgeable in net working.What do I need to do to access the DVR from a remote computer?
I just purchased a Linksys e4200 router today along with a WD 2TB MyBook hard drive. My intent is to set these two up together so that i can share files on the hard drive with: Computers on my home network ( 1 Windows 7 desktop wired, 1 windows 7 laptop wifi, 1 XP netbook wifi)Computers remotely over the internetSmartphones (Android and Apple) on my home networkSmartphones (Android and Apple) remotely over the internet. My questions are: Set-up remote access for fileshare with smartphones?What is the easiest way to set-up and configure this?
