Linksys Wireless Router :: WG111v1 / Can Only Find Guest Network
Aug 30, 2011
Our router is connected to my moms work computer. So on our main family computer we have a NET GEAR WG111v1 wireless adapter. When I do a scan for avaliable networks only the guest network is found. Our ipods can find the main secured connection but not the computer.
Any problems with the guest network on the ea4500 with the cloud firmware? I am losing guest clients after about 24 hours and the re-authentication fails. you enter the guest password and nothing happens until you reboot the router.
I have the wireless guest network up and running just fine. But, I need to also connect to the router's quest network via one of the ethernet ports. Can I just give the LAN-conencted PC a 192.168.3.x static IP to access the guest network? I am assuming there is no VLAN functionality...
And even better, can I set up a DHCP relationship to that port? So that any device plugged into the port will get a IP on that subnet?
I cannot get the Guest Network feature to work.Even though Guest SSID is enabled, it does not show up on any devices attempting to connect. Manually connecting by entering the Guest SSID fails (not recognized). On devices with the primary 5 and 2.4 GHz configured they do see the third network but without SSID (unknown) and are also unable to connect to it manually using the SSID.I did not try this before 1.0.02. Have rebooted modem and verified all configs (multiple times). The network is live in an office and can't keep screwing with it or drastically changing its settings.
I just installed my EA4500 router and it was amazingly simple. My only question is it shows two wireless connections available: The secured one I set up and the another network with the same name that says "guest" and is NOT secured. Is there a way to either disable the unsecured guest network or to secure the guest network?
I am running a guest network on my E4200V2. I have changed my DNS servers on the router to use OpenDNS for traffic filtering. The filtering on my non-guest networks is working fine; the OpenDNS test sites are blocked. However, when I use the guest network, the OpenDNS test sites are not blocked. There's obviously nowhere that I can change the DNS settings for the guest network.
I know that parental filtering in the router applies to the guest network, however, it seems that the DNS servers for the non-guest networks don't apply to the guest network. Is this true? Have others seen this?If so, that's pretty disappointing. OpenDNS filtering is much more powerful than the 8-URL blacklist I can create in the router admin. If I want to filter sites for my kids, having a guest network that is essentially wide-open (except for 8 URLs) is not an ideal situation.
I have Cisco E4200v2, and after someone hacked my router's password, I was forced to activate a white listing MAC filtering. Problem is, that I would also like to enable a guest network so my small business's clients could still connect to the wifi, without having access to out home PC (and drinking our bandwidth).
I just installed and started using my E3000. Love it so far but I have a question about the guest network. I did set one up with a network name and password. It does show up under available networks but as an unsecured one. How do I go about securing it?
I want to setup a Linksys EA4500 in bridge mode behind my separate firewall to access the domain LAN. I'd also like to supply a wireless guest network for clients. In bridge mode the EA4500 doesn't seem to offer a separate guest network. Is there any solution other than adding another Wireless router just to serve up the Wireless Guest Network?
I haven't found a way to rename the Guest account on my E3000 router. If my router is named HomeRouter the Guest account automatically gets the name HomeRouter-guest. I have disabled the router's SSID broadcast, but it still broadcasts the almost identical Guest account.
I'm not sure why the guest net work is unsecured. I would have thought that would not be an option but it is unsecured. How to secure the guest network [2.4 GHz]? Also when I view the guest list some devices stay displayed whether they are in the vicinity or even turned off. That adds to my paranoia with the guest network being unsecured. I also can't edit the screen names to know who the device belongs to like is available in "my devices", forcing me to keep a MAC address list.
I currently use a E2500 router for my home network. I have setup the Wireless guest Network for my downstairs Tenant while he is out of work so he can still have some internet. The problem however is that often the guest network will take up 90% of my 55mb/sec bandwidth, leaving none for the primary network. Is there a way for me to Throttle the amount of bandwidth the Guest network can use? Say alot 10mb/sec for Guest access only, and leave the rest for our main network?
I have a wrt54g router and would like to separate the WLAN clients from accessing computers and servers on the LAN... in other words I would like to make it a "guest" network. I've put the router in "router" mode instead of "gateway". I just want to be sure if that is the best thing I can do in terms of turning the wireless network into an isolated one.
Experienced problems with guest network not showing up as an available network on a device (laptop, iPad, etc)?I double checked if guest network is enabled on a EA3500 router. What other steps can I take?
The situation is Main house running Linksys EA4200, I have a garage apartment rental that is to far away to receive the wireless guest network.I ran a cat5e to the apartment, can I configure the EA4200 to allow the WAP54G access point to use the guest network? I want to prevent my renters from having access to the home network, but just have basic internet access separate/outside my network.
I have just upgraded my E3200 to firmware: 1.0.04 build 1 Apr 10, 2012.The guest network SSID didn't show before in my access point list, but now I can't even change the settings on the router.The options are greyed out.
I have a Linksys E2500 router. Is it possible to have one network name for the secured network and a different network name for the Guest network? The thought is to not have the SSID of the secured network broadcast while allowing the SSID of the Guest network to be broadcast. With the convention of simply adding "Guest" to the end of the SSID for the secured network, it defeats the security option of not having the SSID of the secured network broadcast.
I've got two EA4500 routers connected via Ethernet. The primary router has DHCP enabled and the secondary has it disabled. IP address of primary is 192.168.1.1 and the secondary is 192.168.1.2.
I have set up guest access on both routers however only the primary router allows users to connect. When out of range of the primary router but in range of the secondary router the network is visible but when you try to connect to it, it only gives limited or no connectivity message and can't connect to the internet.
Is it possible for the guest network access to follow the same pattern as the secure network, i.e. the same network throughout the house?
I have a Cisco network at my office and the router and everything is set up under my desk.I can use the internet just fine on my office computer but I am trying to use it on my laptop and login to the guest account .I ran across the Cisco Connect sofware and that I need it to find the password but the problem is I dont think I have a router or whatever it is that is compatible with this software I am using WRT54g wireless n router, the models on the site for the cisco connect are e series
My router a E4200. the thing is i want to disable the dhcp services from the router, because there are allready a dhcp server in my network. but if i disable the dhcp will the Guest wifi functions still work?
Just got a new EA3500, and plan to use its guest network feature to allow Internet access but not access to my LAN. Wondering if I can set it up so that users on the guest network bring up a particular website when they open their browser.
I just installed my new Cisco E3000 and configured it over the HTTP interface, as I have on previous routers. I am unable to find any setting for the "Guest" wireless network (outbound internet only), or the Parental controls. Both of these are features of interest, and they're simply not listed in any of the web-based settings.
Puzzled, I did a Factory Reset and configured it via the Cisco Connect instead.. this had the Guest feature and Parental controls, but none of the other features I need, like QOS, or Port Forwarding, or DHCP disable.
It seems like the Web interface only configures some settings, and the Cisco Connect configures other settings, but I can't use them both.
Where does one set up the additional password for Guest access? Other than this, the router works fine on 2.4 & 5 GHz, nice..
I've got an E4200v1 running 1.0.04 firmware with guest access enabled. I'd like to find out who is logged in using the guest access. Is there a way to get a list of the DHCP clients on the guest network? I'm able to do this for the non-guest access via the WEB interface's Status->Local Network->DHCP Clients Table page. But I can't find a similar table for the guest network.
I have successfully set up a guest network on my EA4500. Guest laptop associates with guest SSID just fine. Then via IE, it gets prompted for the guest password, which is entered and accepted just fine. At this point guest laptop is on the network.
BUT... at some point the guest laptop will need to reauthenticate (I don't know what the timeout is, but maybe one or two days?). Anyway, it's at this point that IE presents the guest network login page. But now after typing in the password, "enter" or clicking on the button does nothing. It looks like the guest web page doesn't get loaded properly or completely, so the reauthentication can't complete, therefore can't get to the internet. So, while in this state, I've also tried Firefox and Chrome, and same thing, no action when trying to submit the guest password. Tried rebooting guest laptop, and still same problem. Only thing I've found so far that works is to reboot the router. So I'm guessing there's a problem with the guest/web server on the router?? It's a real pain to have to reboot the router every day or two, when I've had other Linksys routers run for months without having to touch them.
I was running CCC 2.1.38 when I first noticed the problem. Since then I've downgraded to Classic 2.0.37, but it seems I still have the same problem. Again, I can connect & authenticate just fine initially, but when reprompted after some period of time, it doesn't work.
I've tried contacting Cisco support, but it looks like I'm at 91 days since purchase and thus outside of my 90-day complimentary support, so they happily provided me with the premium support options just to have the honor of talking with them. Guess I shouldn't have spent so much time trying to figure this out myself.
I have sent up a wireless network in a large building using WAG120N Modem Router and four E1000 wireless routers set as access points. The E1000's have the DHCP switched off to enable roaming so the WAG120N takes care of all that.
