Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Get Better Internet Connection / Have More Capacity To Connect Different Devices

Jul 10, 2012

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N - Devices Lose Connection To Internet

Apr 18, 2010

I have a disconnecting problem with my WRT120N (Linksys) wireless router. Sometimes all wireless devices lose the connection to the internet, and the access to the router administration page (192.168.1.1) becomes impossible. In this case LEDs of power, internet and wireless are lighting without flashing. This problem usually occurs every 48 hour, and there was no way to make a reconnection except turning the router off by unplugging the power wire and plug it again…
 
I hope find a solution for this problem here
 
Other question: are there any problems in Firmware Version: v1.0.04

Note: currently I use Firmware Version: v1.0.01

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120n - Intermittent Connection For Apple Devices

Dec 3, 2011

I recently upgraded my Linksys wrt120n router firmware & had to reconfigure settings.  Subsequently, some (but not all) of my apple devices are having intermittent wireless connection problems.  Specifically, my ipad1 & ipad2 never lose their connection but a mac book pro (~ 2 years old), iPhone 3g, iPhone 4, older iPod touch & very old i book g4 all work for a period of time (usually 1/2 day) & then lose their connection.  When I attempt to reconnect these devices I receive the following error..."unable to join the network xxxxxx....".  I also have a Dell laptop (1 1/2 yrs old) that generally does not have the connection problem.  Finally, when the devices do lose their network connection all I have to do to reconnect is go to the Linkys router setup webpage & click on save & the wireless connection works again (almost like this is just refreshing the connection for these specific apple devices).  I was not having any problem prior to the firmware upgrade & from what I have read the older firmware version is no longer available so going back to the old firmware does not appear to be an option.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N / WRT310N - Router 2 Devices Can Get To Internet?

Jul 23, 2011

Router 1: I have a WRT120N wireless router connected to the Internet.  It has IP 192.168.1.1 and DHCP is enabled with address range 192.168.1.100 up.
 
Router 2: I have a WRT310N router connected to the LAN via LAN port to ethernet jack in the wall (not WAN/Internet port).  It has ip 192.168.1.2 and DHCP is DISABLED.
 
All the devices on my network can see each other.  Devices connecter to router 1 can see devices connected to router 2.The problem is, devices connected to router 2 cannot get to the Internet.  I verified clients connecting to router 2 are assigned the same DNS addresses and the same gateway 192.168.1.1 as the clients connected to router 1.  But for some reason router 2 doesn't know how to router Internet traffic out through router 1?
 
I tried plugging the LAN cable into the Internet/WAN port on Router 2 but then devices on Router 2 can no longer see devices on Router 1. I've seen discussions of setting up router 2 on its own subnet: 192.168.2.1 instead of 192.168.1.2 but then supposedly devices on router 2 will still not be able to see devices on router 1. 
 
I'm guessing router 2 can't access the Internet because it is default configured to send Internet traffic to the Internet port, no t the LAN port. how to configure it so all devices on both routers see each other and router 2 devices can get to the Internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Drop Internet Connection

Sep 13, 2011

I’ve bought a router, and a wireless antenna for my laptop, since I have a high-speed internet outlet in the living room, but I use my laptop in the kitchen (I don’t have any other pc). So I’ve configured my Linksys WRT120N router in the living room, unplugged the ethernet cable from my laptop, plugged the wireless antenna in the kitchen, and everything was working fine with the wireless network. After about one month I was not able anymore to enter my network with the security key, there was actually no prompt for the security key, just a message “Cannot connect to the network”. I then had to reconfigure the router, going to the router IP address (I used the default settings, a blank for username, and “admin” as a password, as per instructions), use another network name, security key and password, and was able to start again a wireless network with the wireless antenna as before. This problem represented other 3 times (in the last 3 months), and was working fine, but now I cannot reconfigure the router anymore, since the IP address doesn’t accept BLANK/ADMIN anymore, and if I go ahead and reconfigure the router a message says I have to use the default settings in the IP address…

Linksys Wireless Router :: Unable To Connect Internet With WRT120N

Dec 7, 2011

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?

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Keeps Loosing Connection

Sep 3, 2011

I have several computers and printers connected to a WRT120N router which is connected to 10mpbs DSL.  The computers are all running WIN7 and are hardwired to the router.  On the one PC, it keeps losing network connection.  I've tried upgrading the router's firmware, reset, etc. to no avail.
 
I think it may be related to the same IP address being assigned to multiple machines connected to the router.  Is there a way to set specific IP addresses to each item connected to the router to see?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Connection Is Not Stable

Nov 24, 2009

I recently purchased the WRT-120N router for my home network. The wireless is set to mixed mode, with WPA Personal encryption, with key renewal set at the default 3600 seconds. My problem is that the connection is not stable. I can be connected with one computer, then, as soon as another computer joins the network, I get kicked off. This happens with all of my 5 computers. In addition to this, several of my computers will not automatically connect to my network after the computer is restarted. When I try to reconect manually, it says the network is unavailable. The only way I can get back on is if I go into "Control PanelManage Wireless Networks" and delete the setting for my network, then connect again through the "Connect to a network" window.4 of my computers are running Windows Vista with a minimum of Service Pack 1. The Other is running XP with Service Pack 2.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N - Get Wired Connection On PC?

Nov 30, 2011

I'm capped out at 12 mbps service through Mediacom.  My PC is directly wired to the WRT120N.  I consistently test in the 11 mbps range.  
 
I have a very unusual issue though.  
 
I can connect my iphone and Xbox wirelessly through my router with no issues on their side.  However, any time I do so, it kills my wired connection on my PC.  I'm not doing huge downloads or P2P or anything like that.  In fact, the speed drops immediately on my PC the moment I connect my phone to the wireless network regardless of what i'm doing on the phone (checking email or loading a webpage).

Linksys WRT54GS Router - Devices Cannot Connect To Internet

Apr 4, 2012

I've been using a Linksys WRT54GSV4 router since November 2005, and have rarely had any problems with it. Now today after the power went out, devices cannot connect to the internet.My PC connected directly to the cable modem results in internet connectivity.My PC connected to the router allows router access through 192.168.1.1.My PC connected to the router can NOT access the internet or otherwise get out to the modem.WiFi devices in the house cannot connect to the internet, but can still access the router through 192.168.1.1.Swapping cables results in the same behavior, so the PC can connect to the modem with either cable, and the computer can connect to the router with either cable.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Constantly Losing Connection

Apr 17, 2012

I have a Linksys WRT120N wireless router that I have had for almost three years now. It recently has started dropping all internet connections very randomly, sometime multiple times in an hour. I will lose my connection to the internet and connection locally to other laptops then it will reconnect. It is also disconnecting when wired as well as I have a playstation using a wired connection out of the router and it loses connection all the time as well. What is causing this, I am pretty sure it is the router and not my internet service.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Drops Connection Several Times A Day

Jan 23, 2011

I have a WRT120N router .It has something to do with turning on or re-introducing certain wireless devices into the area. When I come home with my iPhone & my wife is on her computer, suddenly the wifi stops. And vice-versa. It's ridiculous. I'm not a computer programmer but if I was I'm pretty sure this would be a no-brainer to fix. Especially if the company that paid me took pride in their products.

Can't Connect To Internet With Linksys WRT120N

Oct 31, 2011

I've tried everything I can think of to try to connect to the internet with my Linksys WRT120N router.

The Problem

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.

Computer Specs

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.
