Linksys Wireless Router :: Unable To Reset E1200 N
Oct 20, 2012
I am trying to setup two wireless routers in my network. I purchased a E1200 N router and an older G Linksys router upstairs.When I got the N router I set it up a stand alone router and it worked great for a week or so. I then wanted to try to get both routers going to I changed the IP address on E1200 to 192.168.2.1....the router rebooted and then could not login. I am not able to get any internet conntion anymore. When I type 192.168.2.1 it goes to page can not be displayed, 192.168.1.1 same thing. Ipconfig shows some address auto address that I did not put in and i am also not connected to a modem. I cant log into the router at all.So reset: I held down the button for 30 seconds...let go and it blinks and then goes solid but does not reset. Unplugged router for 5 minutes tried again. Cant get into 192.168.1.1..will not prompt for anything. I have tried to reset this router about 10 times and can not get into the default login at all.
I set up an E1200 about two weeks ago to replace our old DI-524 because our net speeds were getting throttled (the old router wouldn't support anything higher than 10mbps). The same day, we started getting modem resets (We have an SB6120). This never happened on the old router but it's constantly happening with this new one. It'll happen multiple times a day. I called Cox Tech Support and they pushed an upgrade onto the modem but it still reset. I don't think it's the router, since I don't understand why it would force the modem to reset, but this never happened before I installed it. The firmware is updated to the latest version on the Cisco site (1.0.02).
since last nite my router E1200 has been having speed up and down problems.first it goes to 150mb/s then back down to 1 for a few minutes, usualy its stuck at 72mb/s which is a far cry from its rated 300mbps but qi'd rahter have that than 1-2mbps.i'd be happy with 150mbps but that only lasts 5mins then goes down to 1-2mbps and i have to reset my connection.
I have an E1200 and if a device - such as my tablet or laptop - is left unused for a period of time - say for 4 or 5 hours - they won't reconnect to the router unless I do a power cycle/reset on the router.
Did not write down the KEY for my wireless router...a CISCO/LINKSYS E1200. My old router had an HTTP address I could type in and access the router and read the security setings.....what http do I type in to read key on this wireless router?
I just upgraded my router from an old wireless54G to an E1200.The wireless device I have on my Sony Viao PCG GRT-240G laptop is LAN-Express AS IEEE 802.11g miniPCI Adapter
-Initially I couldn't connect at all with this machine (however the other two newer laptops could) so I contacted the Linksys tech and he advised I should upgrade my laptop driver
-After much research about this I found a common fix was to upgraded drivers from the 2004 sony driver to atheros_wifi_22.214.171.1240 drivers.
-After I did the upgrade I can connect to the router on the guest account and use the internet
However, on the Main account I can connect to the router but I have no internet connectionGoogle chrome gives error belowThe server at [url]... can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.How can I use one part of the network but not the other part? Shouldn't both the guest & main accounts use DNS lookup?
I just bought an E4200 and it was working perfectly, very easy to install, all that it promises. Then I had an energy peak. For some reason, don't ask me why, I did RESET the router not thru the web nor thru Cisco Connect, but pushing the reset button at the back. I can't access the router anymore ! It keeps asking for a password that is never accepted. I have uninstalled cisco connect and tried again. Nothing. The router is not found. Keeps asking for a password. I tried everything: blan+admin, admin+admin, the password I used to have (provided at the cisco connect uninstall).It seems that the RESET never worked. The router is working thru cables, meaning when I can connect to the internet wired. But the router is never found wireless.How could I update the firmware if the router is not recognized (or if I don't have a username+password) ?
So, I've been having problems with connecting my HTPC to the E2000. I had an old D-link router + USB Wireless N adapter, but after the Dlink died, I bought the E2000, and upgraded to a faster N Adapter. Anyway, connection had been sketchy using the WPA/WPA2 encryption. I turned it off completely, and did get some better wireless speeds. I couldn't leave it open, though, as there are tons of laptops around my apartment that end up connecting to my network. Connecting wirelessly using that particular adapter continued to give problems. Two blackberries plus a Nookcolor connect with no issues (maybe because they're wireless G, who knows).
I then decided to reset the router by simply pressing and holding the reset button as I've done on all my other routers. It did reset, and reboot, but when it came back on, it would no longer connect to the internet. I've connected directly to my modem, and that works fine, but once I connect to the router...nothing. I did a hard reset (30/30/30), and that cleared everything, it seemed. The HTPC now connects easily, but there is still no internet connection. This is proving to be very frustrating.
Is there something I could have done wrong by doing that very first reset? Is there anyway to configure to get back my internet connection?
I have just moved and my ISP is the same ( Comcast) but I'm in a different region of the country. The former service (modem) was a cisco (1 port) that I connected my EA 2700 Cisco router to and it worked like a charm. My IP phones came right up as well. Now I have an modem/router combo (provided by my ISP) and when ever I attempt to connect to my VPN it will give me an error and not connect. I was told by my ISP that I could bridge the router and try that way.Do I need to set up all over again? or have the settings remained. Also I am unable to access my router with admin/password. How do I reset the password?
I just purchases a Linksys E1200 router and set it up using a Dell Win 7 laptop. It works fine for the Win 7 laptop, but I am unable to connect with my Inspiron 1525 with Vista 32 bit OS. Actually, it says I'm connected, but the Access is 'Local' instead of 'Internet' - and I don't have Internet service.
After working with Linksys support, they recommended that I contact Dell. I have tried to find an updated driver for the Dell Wireless 1395 WLAM Mini Card, but am having trouble locating it on the Dell website.
I have 3 Wireless Devices connected to my Router which is a Ipad, Ipod Touch & laptop.I have 2 hard Wired conneted to my Router which is a ps3 and a Desktop. How can i have great speeds and reliable connection on all of them.
I have opened my NAT for xbox using Port Triggering , but I cannot open my NAT for the PC because it uses no ports!I cannot host a match using any MMO game , and I cannot host any MW3/Black Ops matches too!
Setting up new E1200 wireless router. Used the CD to setup network. It set up two networks: 1 secured and one unsecured guest network. Ican connect wirelessly to guest network no problem but it will not connect to the secured network using the correct security key (password).
I purchased E1200 and have a problem. I have static external IP but router configured to get IP automatically (reservation from ISP). When some one at home using internet I can commetc to the router using remote management. But when everybody out and no internet users at home I cannot connect to the router. I checked with other router from linksys (old one WAG45G or something like this) and it was the same. But it works great whith TP-Link routers.
I have a Panasonic Visio tv, I have a LINKsys E1200 that is connected to my Cable Internet. I have successfully connected the wireless to my laptop and have a guest network that has been tested and works as well. I bought a Sharp Blu Ray player that has wireless capability connected to the TV with HDMI cable and the LAN adapter is in the player. When I had the Blu Ray downstairs I had it connected to the LINKsys thru an ethernet cable and didn't use the adapter, but I wanted to take it upstairs and use it on that TV. CANNOT establish an internet connection?
I can't see where to set a user name on my E1200. I set a password for the web interface then it boots me out and I am promted for the password and username.I don't want to download and configure my router with some poorly written software for my mac; why can't I just do it all through the good old web interface???? I'm able to set everything else up fine but when i set the password I am basically rendering the web interface usless and have to reset the router!! (running Lion, latest build with 8gigs of ram and N wirless adaptor in lappy)
Ok, so I was given this router for free so I shouldn't complain but I do not see any speed increase over my 6 year old 54G rinning wrt, perhaps I need summin better than this $50 walmart special Getting about 10mps download which is also the theoretical max of G right)
I set my router to allow my xbox360's mac address, not knowing that it would kick out all of my other devices. So now I can't access my own router and I need to reset it. How do I do that?E1200 series linksys router. I'm looking for an ethernet cable and my installation disk right now to see if I can connect with the cable and maybe use something on the disk if I have to.
I replaced my broken modem with a new Motorola 3360 as recommended by my ISP. The new modem works fine connected directly to my PC. When connecting the modem to the Cisco E1200 router, the same one I had with the older modem, the E1200 says I'm not connected to the PC. I've triple checked the wired connections from the modem to the router and then to the PC. I've swapped out cables and verified that they all work when used directly from the modem to the PC. I'm thinking some settings from the old Westell modem are messing with the connectivity of the new E1200 router.
my wifi router is E1200 at first it works very fine but then when the time you unplugged it and turn it on again it won't work already i mean its working the lights are on and blinking but there's no wifi... why does it happen??? i don't understand...i have already did the 30-30-30 rule the hard reset thin but still nothing's change...
I have been attempting to set up a linksys wireless-n e1200 router on my hp p6-2007c (Windows 7 SP1, 64-bit) desktop pc for the last day and have exhausted everything i can think of. The previous router was a linksys WRT54G and it worked fine. However, upon setting up this new router i get a "no internet access" message accompanied by the little yellow triangle and the ability to still connect to my router via its ip address to alter its configuration. The connection status for the network and the internet is identical for all the laptops in my house. I originally attempted setting up the router using Cisco's setup program. At its conclusion, the setup program informs me that i am connected to the router, but my internet connection has been lost (even though it was never there) I have tried starting over from scratch by resetting the router back to its default settings and using a variety of different channels (Auto, 1, 6, and 11), frequencies, etc. I have uninstalled norton antivirus, disarmed the windows security programs, made sure of TCP/IP settings, rolled back, uninstalled, and finally updated firmware, uninstalled/reinstalled driver for wireless card, disabled/enabled the card itself, deleted all other previous network profiles still present in the "Manage Wireless Networks" screen, and probably some other suggestions i came across in this forum. They all failed with the same results, i.e. the ability to connect to the network locally and having no internet access.
I can connect to the guest account but it cannot resolve DNS addresses; how should the router be set up?
The regular (non-guest) account works as advertised. The E1200 is connected to my Verizon modem/router. I have tried disable/enable of DHCP on the E1200; I have tried setting the E1200 Static DNS 1 to my Verizon router IP address without success.
I want to prevent a wired pc with a static ip from accessing the internet on an e1200 router, but the computer does not show up in the list under "parental controls". I have tried adding it to the dhcp reservation table manually, but it still does not show up. There are, however, several unspecified "network devices" on the list. How can I do this?
I wish to have a home network using the E1200 without an internet connection. I have a netbook (Lenovo S100) and a Samsung Galaxy Note II. I want to be able to have both connected to the router so I can interface the two devices using a program such as Teamviewer.
I just got a Macbook Air and couldn't get connected at home so I went and bought a new router (our other router was old!!). We purchased the E1200. Our Dell desktop seems to have a fine connection, but my MacBook Air and my husbands laptop are really slow when on the internet.
I'm having getting my E1200 to work is this; I'm connected wirelessly with an N-adapter to the router, my roomate is connected directly with an Ethernet cable and to the modem. Whenever he logs ons or logs off from internet I GET DISCONNECTED! Its very frustrating. At first I kept wondering why I would get frequent Disconnects, until I matched exactly the times he would log on or log off. I've never seen this type of problem before in my previous router?
In one area of the home is a century link pk 5000 modem that connect to the internet. In another area of the home is the computer that has an e1200. Is it possible to connect the computer to the internet, wirelessly, from the e1200 to the pk5000? How is this accomplished?
I know the settings for the pk5000 and would "input" them into the e1200 if I friggen knew where to do this.
My ISP requires MAC authentication on the router for internet access. They provide the router, and register that router to their access list.I'm not very happy with the router they provided, so I'm planning to buy a E1200 and clone my current router's MAC address. But when I checked the interface of this router, the mac cloning page has a button saying "Clone my PC's MAC". And in the FAQ page of E1200 it says that the router can automatically capture the MAC address of the PC. Which is not what I want to do.I want to manually input my older router's MAC address into this router to clone it.
