Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N / PPPoE - Bridge Modem And Connect To Internet
Dec 6, 2011
I recently changed my internet connection to DSL from Cable, so now I'm using PPPoE type of connection.
Right now my router is configured as Automatic DHCP with the modem doing the PPPoE connection. All is fine and well.
Since I own a PS3, and Nat Type 3 conection is really bad for my online gaming, I would like to bridge my modem and connect to the internet through my router. That way I can properly forward my ports, use QoS and effectively get a better connection on the PS3.
I was able to successfully bridge the modem, but the PPPoE config on the router isn't able to connect to the internet.
Modem and router have been reinitialized after the configurations were changed. I do have the username and passwords, and they were properly put on the router.
I have rather huge connection at home. DL speed 80Mb, UL speed 3Mb.When I connect my PC directly to modem and configure PPPoE connection, I get 81Mbits/sec. When I connect my old ASMAX $30 router, I get 78 Mbit/sek. And I find it OK.But when I connect my EA6500 I get 28 MBits/sec. Same result on wire as on wireless connection. Of course If I enable prioritisation, I get even less, 12-15 Mbits/sec.I tried already even configuration with ASMAX as wired router and EA6500 connected to its LAN port. It gives me 50Mbits/sec.
config to setup PPPoE on the cisco 831 router to be used with a modem in bridge mode. I have tired other peoples configs found on the web but, not all the commands were available on the IOS version thats on the router. Also note that I bought this as a used router and I dont have a service contract so I am unable to download an updated IOS. The router ver is 12.3(7)T9 and the IOS is c831-k9o3sy6-mz.123-7.T9.bin. Running config below is last tried still could not connect or get ip address from isp. [code]
I am using wrt54gx4. I have a IP camera connected to it. I can view the live images on the intranet and internet. Not too long ago my DSL company upgraded my DSL modem to a newer model. Then I can not connect to the internet by PPPoe. DHCP is fine. So the only connection type works is DHCP. But now I can not view the live images on the internet. I can only view the live images on intranet( I mean if I open web browser and type url.. is the port, I can view the live image).
COX cable was out yesterday doing some work outside our apartment building. Now, our CISCO LinkSYS WRT120N won't work. I was working before COX cable came out and has been working without problem for the past two years.When I plug the harddrive into slot 1 in the back of the router, "4" lights up. When I plut it into slot 4, "1" lights up. When I plug it into slot 2, "3" lights up, and when I plug it into slot 3, "2" lights up.I tried the router software, but when I reach the plug the router in step, the soft ware returns after a couple minutes and says it cannot locate the router, even though the router lights are on.
I'm staying at a hotel where the internet offered is only wired. I can plug in the ethernet cable and no log-in is required. However, when I connect to the router and then try to access the internet from my laptop it does not appear to work.
My router was working till date. Due to some reason, I disconnected the internet cable and connected it. After that it does not connect to internet.Based on the forum I accessed 192.168.1.1, it displays the administration page. I have reset to factory settings and switched off the router for a while and turned it
For some reason my wireless router recognized my pc, or my modem, Neither is it able to connect to the internet. All the lights are on but not flashing/blinking like they used to. I tried to run the setup over and it couldn't find the router even though everything was plugged correctly. I tried reseting the router but that doesn't even affect it. All the lights remain on with on blinking or flashing no mater what I do. Is there anyway for my router to work normal again or do I need to get a ned wireless router?
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 192.168.2.1 (and alternately to 192.168.1.253), so it won't conflict with the modem's IP, and it freezes up every time I try.
I'm using the ASDM, if I configure VLAN2 with the IP address of the VDSL interface I can ping the modem from the console session via Putty. If I take that off and configure up the PPPOE client I can't ping the VDSL modem, I'd expect that. If I then add in an IP address to the PPPOE client config like I assigned to VLAN2 it doesn't ping either.If I can't ping the VDSL modem I don't expect it would work but it seems I can only either give it a static address which pings but has no pppoe or give it a PPPOE config which means I can't ping the VDSL. why I can't ping the VDSL modem when the interface is set as PPPOE with an IP address?Presumably if I'm on the ASA console doing pings from there to the modem then I'm ruling out problems with the routing from the laptop (trying to isolate where the issue is)
Reciently I bought a WRT120N Router to get a better internet connection and to have more capacity to connect different wireless devices, because the modem from my internet provider company is extremely restrictive.
I use an iMac, a Notebook with Windows 7 and a Netbook with Ubuntu 11.04, besides different devices (iPhone, iPod, PS3, Kindle). Although when I configured the router I connected every devices simultaneasly, with better signal quality than before, after using it for a couple of days I found that it disconnects itself, I can't access internet, and my only solution it's to switch it off and on.
I am using the WRT54G2 connected to a cable modem that requires a PPPoE login. I followed the Service Providers instructions and cloned the modems MAC address to the WRT54G and setup the PPPoE user id and password. I can then plug my PC into one of the Ethernet connections on the back of the WRT54G and everything works as expected. First I connect to the WRT54G2 and then I open a PPPoE connection in my network settings and it logs into the service provider and everything works as expected. But when I connect to the WRT5G2 wirelessly I connect to the AP fine. When I open the same PPPoE connection to the service provider it fails, the message says I have the wrong userid or password or that the protocol is not supported. Of course I know the userid and password is correct because it works when connected with Ethernet cable. I have tried disabling the security on the wireless network but that did not seem to work.The modem is a HomePNA HCNA Voice Endpoint.I am at the latest firmware 1.0.04.
Im trying to bridge my zyxel eq660r-f1 dsl modem so that i can resolve the nat issue im having in my home network. Only problem is that everytime I bridge the modem and hook my E4200 up, I cannot connect to the internet. If i connect my laptop directly to the modem, I do get internet but not through the router itself.
When it comes to configuring my new Linksys Cisco WRT120N router to my PPPoE connection. I've visited 192.168.1.1 but I'm not sure what to do next. So, I've got a PPPoE connection, static IP address, Linksys Cisco WRT120N router and a terrible ISP.
How to configure my new router so that I can start using the wireless for Internet access at home.
I just figured out how to bridge my modem, it was working perfectly. I was walked through by my ISP. So I KNOW it's correct.When I go to set up PPPoE with my WRT160N V2 router, I seeUsername:Password:Service Name (optional)(unchecked) Connect on Deman: Max Idle Time(checked) Keep Alive: Redial Period 30 secondsI KNOW my user and pass are correct but i still have no internet when I bridge my router and put in the info.My modem has DHCP turned off so i turned it off on my router too...nothing.Basically what all settings do I need to change in the ROUTER ALONE to make this work when setting up a PPPoEbtw setup is
I've been using my EA4500 since it's original launch date as a PPPoE router through another router/modem which is the Netgear DG834G V4 set to Modem Only mode which was working fine for a long time!A month ago, a friend wanted to borrow the Netgear Router and after he gave it back I reset it like I always do and entered my settings in router mode(i.e. username and password) to check if I havewe working Internet connection and that the router is working properly and it was working properly like it was before I lent it. Now comes the problem, if I keep using the Netgear router as the PPPoE handler and make the EA4500 work as "Automatic Configuration DHCP" it works flawlessly but if I set the Netgear router to modem mode and make the EA4500 handle the PPPoE connection, the report in the troubleshooting tab keeps on saying "Connecting" endlessly!
Note: I've replicatedthe settings that I used on both router before and after lending it to my friend so there's no difference in settings!
When the ethernet cable is plugged directly into my laptop i can input my user name and password and connect directly without a problem. But as soon as i plug the cable into the router, the activity lights turn off like its not plugged in on the other end...which it is. So when going through the setup process, both using the cd and inputting the information on the web based setup. It does nothing, the automatic setup says the cable isnt plugged in. When using the browser setup i can click connect as many times as i want and it does nothing but say disconnected.
My friend changed to TimeWarner cable a while ago. I bought her a netgear wireless switch to have wireless access. She has an old laptop as well with Vista on it, and was trying to connect that to the WiFi. Let her buy the Linksys. Didnt solve the problem and he turned off the wireless security to connect the Vista laptop. That was somewhere July 2011. Since than I have setup MAC filtering to at least have the WiFi not completely open to the public.
I have a d-link dsl modem that reports it's getting the full 6 meg download speed from AT&T. I put the dsl modem in bridge mode so the E4200 will do the logon to AT&T with my credentials. If i do a speed check using CNET internet speed test, from both a desktop (wired 1gb card) and any laptop in the house (all draft n 2.4 or 5.0), it ranges anywhere from 3 meg to 4.3 meg. I have 6 cat-e ethernet cords everywhere. I do have 2 switches but have tried to unplug those to see if any difference
I just bought a WRT120N to set up with my new Gateway Windows 7 64-bit using Cablevision cable internet. When I go through the steps from the CD to install, the wizard does not find the connection. When the internet is plugged directly into the computer, it works fine. If I have the router plugged in first and then run the install CD, it picks up the router as an existing router but I can't get it to install
I'm not that great at networking, I'm pretty much a novice but I'm trying to connect a modem and router to my computer but get around bridging the modem if possible. You see, I am working with AT&T and their dsl modem access page only works for me if the modem is unbridged. If I bridge the modem, I cannot get on the page again to unbridge it while I am trying to hook up my router. When I need them to unbridge the modem, I have to stay on hold for hours. One guy even told me that he did unbridge the modem, but since my internet persisted not to work, he told me my ethernet card went bad of a sudden on my computer. I knew this was incorrect so after a few more hours on hold, I had a lady debate with me that she was not unbridging my modem since it was my ethernet card that was bad and not the bridging. Finally, laughing to herself, she unbridged the modem for me and it worked
Here is what I have: My modem is a Motorola 2210 Style: MSTATEA My router is a Linksys WRT120N
As of right now, I just have a LAN with my modem plugged in through an ethernet cord to my PC. Is there a way of me hooking up my Linksys router to my modem and PC without bridging the modem? If so, where can I find out instructions for this?
I am trying to manually setup a WRT120N router. I am using my laptop (hard wired) for the initial setup. Okay, everything is working fine until I unplug the ethernet cable and try to go wireless. Will not connect to my network. I am also having this problem with all my other devices.
I had everything running fine on a WRT54G, I just wanted to try out the WRT102N. I did change the SSID name form what I was using on the WRT54G.
My mother in law bought my daughter a impression android tablet for Christmas it connects fine at public hotspots but I can not get it to connect to our wrt120n router at home. I have tried everything I know to add it. It asks for the password then says getting IP address then disconnects.
I can connect via a ethernet cable but can't connect via a "Ralink RT5390 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Adapter" on a HP Pavilion G6 Windows 7 OS. It finds the connection (with a strong signal) and asks for my network key but then says "Windows was unable to connect to network"
I just replaced my WRT54G with a WRT120N. Everything is working fine, but...
My MacBook Pro (about 18 months old) claims to support a/b/g/n, but it only wants to connect using 802.11g. It's running Snow Leopard. The laptop and the router are about 3 feet apart. Is there some incompatibilityin the version of 802.11n they support?
I've tried everything I can think of to try to connect to the internet with my Linksys WRT120N router.
A few months ago my internet was out for a few hours, but I thought it was a router problem so I disconnected the router and connected my computer to the internet through my DSL modem. Of course, I couldn't connect to the internet because the internet was just out for a few hours on my provider's end. But after that the router wouldn't connect back to the internet.
Windows Vista 32 bit. Intel Core2 DUO, 2.20 GHz, 2 GB RAM
Here are a list of things I've tried.
1. Installing it with the install disc. 2. Installing it manually 3. Updating the Firmware 4. Resetting the router multiple times 5. Making sure that Obtain IP Address Automatically is selected 6. Putting my MAC address into the router settings 7. Renewing my IP address 8. Flushing my DNS 9. Disabling both my Firewall and then making sure Windows Firewall was off 10. While doing all of this I rebooted my computer and powered down my DSL modem and router several times.
I recently buyed a Linksys EA6500 wireless router. I accessed [URL] to access the settings interface of the router. Went to "Connectivity Internet Settings" and chose type of the internet connection as PPPoE. Entered the username and password, clicked ok.
I have a WRT160NV2 connected to Internet through cable and wanted to connect it wirelessly to a WRT120N that is far from it in order to expand its signal. Is it possible to do it wirelessly or the only solution is to connect them with cable?
