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?
my linksys e3000 router loses connection quite often. E.G. we lost power last night and i tried resetting the router but it didnt work so I had to uninstall and then reinstall the router. A few other times it would lose connection for no apparent reason.
have a HP 6500a All In One Printer in the network with a BERSR41 V3 router. I am using a Imac with this sytem for printing and scanning. For some reason I keep loosing the printer when I try to scan? I have it set to a static IP, and can not ping it, but can access the printer throught the network with the HP Utility. Am I missing something in setup on the router that causes it to keep loosing connection?
I can hardwire to my modem and get internet but when I try using the router it can't find it. Everything was fine yesterady with router. What I noticed is when I plug the router in to reset it before plugging any ethernet cables in the port 1&4 lights were blinking like there was activity
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.
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).
I had the WAP610N for a few months with no issues. As always, I have a custom SSID and password, using WPA2. All of a sudden, none of my mobile units (at least 5) are unable to connect via the WAP610N. However, I can connect to a Netgear N750 w/o any issues. When I reboot the WAP610N, it resolves the issue for a few minutes, but then behaves the same as before. I know its not my network because, I am able to connect via wired and wireless via the Netgear. I verified via the web interface that none of the settings/configurations have changed - but still nothing. Latest firmware has been applied. Note sure If I should perform a factory reset or re-apply the firmware.
The hardwired connections are fine, but at random the Printer, laptop and wireless Xbox connections will drop out and i'll have to reboot the router to get it working again. I've tried everything I know of (i.e., Static IP, Port Forwarding) as well as a factory reset, but I continue to have this issue.
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.
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.
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…
my router drops connection several times a day. I have to unplug the router every day so that my devices can stay connected. I hate when this happens late at night when i'am upstairs and have to go 2 stairs down to get internet on my devices. For example if i want to connect my iPhone to my Wireless network it gives me an error with: 'No connection can be astablished with this network'.
I often loose internet connection recently while online. I always check my status on 192.168.1.1 when this happen to see if i'm getting 0's ISP but it does not say that.I also tried ipconfig/release and renew I also tried right click wireless icon and click "repair"Power cycle always worked for me in the past but today to my dissappointment it did not.after power cycling I check my status on 192.168.1.1 and now it indicates 0's.
I have an internet connection of the speed of 384 kbps, settings are default i changed nothing. firmware is updated. i'm using wireless connection.any settings you will recommend like in MTU, Beacon Interval, RTS and fragmentation?
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
My wireless router will work for 6- 8hrs then drop the internet connection. I have to cycle the modem and router several times to restore the connection. I am also using a Netgear Access Point.
I am using: Charter High Speed Internet Motorola Modem Cisco Model WRT120N Router SETTINGS Mode- Mixed Channel Width- Auto 20MHz or 40MHz Security- WPA2 Personal SSID Broadcast- Disabled Firmware Version v1.0.04 Connection Type- Auto Conf DHCP Beacon Interval - 50 Fragmentation Threshold 2304 RTS Threshold 2304
All other setting are at factory default.When I unplug the modem from the router and plug it into the desk top I have internet service.
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.
Router config and i just follow the instructions anyway i just bought this router cuz the old one failed and it was installed ok with internet connection and everything but when i open a program like bittorrent azureus the internet connection dies, it happens on my laptop and mac they both seem ok but when i open that program internet connection disappears
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.
After an upgrade of the WRT120N to firmware Ver.1.0.06 (Build 01) every device I have tried to use WPA authentication with will authenticate / associate with the device then drop the connection just prior to recieving a DHCP address.I have tried a Dell latitude laptop with the broadcom chipset, an iPhone 3GS as well as an motorola with google pad device and all experience the same problems.I have removed all mac address filtering, and re-enabled the essid broadcasting only to have the same problem persist despite stripping everything down to just WPA.
I'm running Windows 7 64bit and I have sucessfully configured my wireless print server (Linksys WPSM54G) to work with my computer and our HP DesignJet 500ps. I have been able to print several sets of drawings without issue, however if the plotter is inactive for an extended period of time (1 hour +/-) the wireless print server loses connection with our router. At the same time the print server loses connection, an associate in our office with a wireless connection to his computer also loses connection to the router. A simple power cycle of the router and print server restores the wireless connection
I chatted with Linksys online tech support and they confirmed that I had the most recent firmware in both the router and print server and had me reconfigure some of the wireless settings on the router. All was good until about an hour ago when I tried to plot and discovered that the print server had lost it's connection to the router and my associate had also lost his wireless connection.
What's the deal here? I feel as though the root cause of this issue is related to the wireless router rather than the print server as my associate was periodically losing connectivity to the wireless router before installing the print server.
My IP provider has upgraded my broadband speed in early Jan. They require ADSL2. It seems to coincide with this date that I keep loosing my internet connection on a regular basis, say every 2 days or so, but not consistent. The cure is to unplug the linksys WAG200G ADSL home gateway. Plug it in again and all is well, until the next time. On the box it says the until is ADSL2/2+ compliant.
I've recently upgraded from a WAG54GS to the WAG320N. It seems to work OK for a period then looses the connetion to the Internet - DSL light on but not the Internet light. Normally I need to re-set the router to re-connect (either through the back switch or through the setup page)
This is my DSL information from [URL] whilst connected OK

When the modem looses connection to the Internet; the DSL Noise Margin drops way down to 0.0 or 0.5.
My Cisco X3000 keeps loosing the internet connection after 1 day and will only reconnect if the device is rebooted. Pressing the Internet connect button in the Status page does nothing.Even when the Internet connection is lost, the wireless network is working 100% and all the devices on the network stays connected and are accessible.The router has been updated to the latest Firmware available from Cisco v1.0.03 build 001 Jun 11,2012
I have the E4200v1 and if I remember correctly I think its on 220.127.116.11 (cant remember because I went back to my wndr3700). I had not had any problems with it until yesterday when I returned to playing The Hunter (first time playing it on the E4200) and my girl hollered upstairs saying that she lost connection on the laptop. I reset the router and she reconnected and I went back to playing the game. 2 minutes later she hollers again. I stopped playing the game to try to figure out the wireless issue and everything looked normal. No more loss connections for the next few hours..........Until I started playing the game again...so I took it out of line and put the 3700 back in line and played the game for hours with no connection drop to the wireless. Is this a knows issue on the 4200? Are some setting changes necessary to game on it? btw I was playing the game wired and it didnt effect the connection at all?
I bought a WRT54G v6 and since I installed and configured it I've experiencing an intermittent connection in my lan where you can find a notebook wireless connected to the router and a desktop wired to the router by cable.I'm working and then the network stops, both computers lose signal with the router. The signal come back few seconds later but to work in internet again I have to wait some minutes.So I contacted the live assistent on Linksys web-site and the agents said to me to do something that I will list here:- lower the MTU to 1480, 1470, 1450- updated the firmware- reflash the firmware- reset the router for about 30 seconds- do the power cycleIf you don't know what update and reflash the firmware or do the power cycle means you can srsistedthe conclusion is that ee the instructions on this pages: [URL] ...
I am experiencing - loosing network connectivity entirely (between the router and the cable modem) or loosing connection to some clients: 2 wireless laptops - one N and one G, and 4 wired connections. This requires a reboot of the router 2-3 times a day. Never experienced any of these problems with a Linksys WRT54G, a unit that this one replaced. Unless I can resolve it, the WRT54G is going back in, and WRT160N is going back.
We are in a hotel that allows us to use their router with a Hawking 300N expander. We seem to lose connection each time their router gets a new IP address. The router seems to lose connection frequently. Is there a setting in the expander that will allow the expander to "follow" the DHCP address of the router without having to take it down and go thru the setup each time.
I have just purchased a DCS 2121 (I assume that it is a similar model to the DCS 920 in US).I have this setup:
- Connected the DCS 2121 wireless to my Belkin Router with a fixed IP address. Firmware version 1.4 is installed on the camera.
- I have a Synology 209 NAS server with surveillance station that I have connected to the Camera.
I all works fine for 5 minutes to a couple of hours at which point the DCS 2121 loose connection to the Router and does not try to reconnect. If I turn the Cam on and off it will reconnect - and then loose connection again af a short time.This is totally frustrating since the purpose of the Cam is to work as a surveillance cam - it kinda loose its value by not being connected...
