I have a FIOS setup with their Router/modem providing DHCP and Wireless routing. The problem I have is that I have a mix of older equipment and newer equipment. The newer equipment is capable of supporting WPA2, the older is not. I would like the benefits of WPA2, but still would like to at times be able to use the older equipment.My solution was to use a WRT160N v2 router that I had as an access point and it also gives me switch capabilities for wired systems as the FIOS router in on a different floor than the Linksys router. Wired access works just fine and the wireless worked fine until just recently.Since both routers have the same default IP addresses I changed the Linksys to a different static IP and turned off DHCP. I left all of the other defaults the same. I set up the Linksys for WEP and created the key for security. Everything worked fine for the better part of a year, but recently I am having problems where some of the computers cannot find the network or find it then lose connection.
I have a Router WRT160N and need to connect an Access Point using a wireless bridge (i.e. cannot use cable between router and AP). Which Linksys Access Point model is recommended to use with this router?(No I dont want to use another WRT160N with DD-WRT!)
While trying to add my kindle fire (unsuccessfully) I lost all internet connections, now my laptop won't connect. I reset the router and and can see my wi-fi account but when I try to use on my PC and laptop it won't recognize it.
I have a WRT 160n I want to use as an access point. The cable company has provided the main router so I want to use the 160 as the access point. I have a switch attached to the router and have the 160 attached to the switch. I can ping and access the 160, however there signal strength has not changed and is still extremely low. I know that the strength on the router is very good when I plug it in to the cable modem.
I have Linksys router model no. WRT160N, which I have been using for three years. I need to add two iPads to my router but I do not know the network password. I am trying to access the router IP address 192.168.0.1 to find out the network password, but when I put HTTP://192.168.0.1 in my browser, I receive the message: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. How can I find out the network password?
I just bought a Linksys E4200 wireless router. I have an old Linksys WRT160N wireless router. I would like to setup the WRT160N downstairs to wire the DirecTv box and PS3 to it. Then wirelessly connect to the E4200 upstairs where our modem is connected. Can the WRT160N be used as an access point to do this or do I need other equipment?
I am having trouble logging in on my wireless router and when i put "admin" (WITHOUT QUOTATIONS) on the password, the same prompt kept on coming for three times and after that the message says "401 Authorization Required" (WITHOUT QUOTATIONS). I don't get though, i installed the wireless router just after i change admin and my password into (******).
I have a wrt160n v1 that stopped working after a power outage. The power light stays solid and I cannot reset the device with the reset button, power cycle, and I cannot access the user interface at 192.168.1.1. Is it bricked? It doesn't show up on my wireless network and when I try to access it via ethernet cable it shows up as an unidentified network with no network access
I got this router and I need to set it as an Access Point (will not be using the routing functionality) in the far side of our building. Our LAN uses IP address in the range 10 with subnet 255.0.0.0, so I need to put the access point ino this subnet. The drop down box only allows me to set some predefined subnet masks, none of which matches ours. So how am I supposed to set this router in our LAN?
I have updated the WRT160n firmware and, since then, I couldn't access the setup page anymore. I could still use the router as a switch, but couldn't access the setup page and configure it as a router.
Everything was going great until tonight. I can connect to the internet fine wired. Wireless devices can connect to the router, but cannot access the internet. No changes were made to the unit. Updatae firmware to 1.02.11 but that did not fix the issue.
I was unable to access the web admin on my WRT160n v3 w/ latest firmware this morning. Reset config to defaults & was able to get in. Enabled HTTPS access & disabled HTTP access & was right back where I started; reset to defaults again & left both boxes checked. Can access via HTTP, but HTTPS requests get refused/reset.
The reason I needed access was that when I booted up my laptop this morning, my wireless card wasn't picking up an IP address via WIFI, only worked via ethernet, so I need to see what was going on there — several reboots of the router didn't fix, nor has it fixed the HTTPS access problem described above.
I am cascading a wrt160n (R1) and a wrt160nl (R2) which are hooked up LAN port to LAN port (via a DLink power line adapter). R1 is hooked up via dhcp to the internet. The whole system works wonderfully for several hours until all of a sudden wireless access to R2 ceases to work (though I still can access everything wired). [code]
We have a home use WRT160N router linked to a PC desktop and two wireless laptops, Yesterday bought a new I-Phone, but could not link to my network (entered the security key many times). I accidentally connected to computer fix it firm that linked to my PC and wanted a large sum to fix the problem which he said was due to large number of temp?? internet files and once removed he would change the IP address of the desktop computer? Is this diagnosis logical and can I do it on my own. The router is definetely working - both laptops access the internet and I was recently able to hook up a Samsung Blu-Ray player using the same security code I used for the I-Phone.
I have a desktop running XP. I am using comcast as my ISP. I have my printer attached to my Linksys wrt160N router via Ethernet. My desktop is also attached via ethernet. I also have a laptop attached to the router via wireless. How do I access the printer via the router from either the desktop or laptop? I had it configured properly in the past then lost my motherboard. Once the PC was rebuilt, I lost access.
I have an AT&T broadband router. A WRT160N is connected to it, so I now have Wireless-N capability. I have a second WRT160N that I would like to put in my living room as an access point, so I can connect my BluRay player to it and stream video. How do I set up the second WRT160N as an access point?
home router is a wrt160n v3 With my iPad I set up the built in IPSec VPN to my office's cisco gateway. I successfully get the VPN logo. With an RDP app, i can access my work network from multiple public locations from my iPad. At home, on my laptop, I start the cisco client then use the windows rdp, presto i'm in my work network. At home on my iPad I can activate the VPN, but I can not connect with rdp. I spoke with linksys support tonight they had me add port 3389 to port range triggering and disable the firewall on the home router. This didn't solve the problem. To recap: 1) I can connect to my work network with rdp from multiple public locations, but not at home with the iPad 2) I can connect to my work network at home with my laptop with the cisco client ant the windows rdp
I am trying to troubleshoot my own router (Linksys) issues with using Lync and accessing some sharepoint sites that are internal to my company's network. I am connecting to the Internet using a Linksys router (WRT400N). When I have my work laptop using RESCUE GFE hardwired directly to the modem - and then connecting to VPN - I can connect to Lync and work normally. However, when I move connection via the router - I can no longer connect to Lync nor access some Sharepoints. I can access VPN fine but with Lync I get an error stating "Your Lync account does not allow access from outside your organization's network. Please connect to your organization's network and try again. However, I am connected via the VPN.this connection worked with a prior laptop using WinXP (I am no on Win7) and the connection thru router and using VPN worked with Communicator.I unfortunately had to reset my router - so I cannot recall if there were port settings established from the last time I had to set up the network. I didn't save the configuration; note to self - save configuration in future.
I'm using a Linksys WRT54G in my home and I have it set up to allow me to connect remotely (VPN and RDP) from work. I do this every day and it works perfectly. The problem I'm having, though, is that every morning it doesn't work until my wife wakes up her laptop. After that it works fine, whether her laptop is on or off. It behaves as if the router is "asleep," and when she generates some local network activity, it wakes up, thus allowing me remote access.
I believe it's a router issue and not a computer issue because not only does it affect VPN and RDP, but even the router's remote management interface is unavailable until this happens.
Some more details about my home setup. I have a fixed IP address assigned to me by my ISP . All computers connect to the router wireless VPN and RDP is routed to a desktop computer running XP SP3 that is always on (it never goes to sleep or hibernates)The router is enabled as a DHCP server (192.168.0.2 thru 11)The desktop computer is set up with a fixed IP address (192.168.0.100)The router is set up to forward VPN and RDP traffic to the desktop . Here's some screenshots that may be useful.
Basic Setup Port Range Forward Management
Pretty much every other setting is defaulted. Like I said at the start, my setup works perfectly and I'm very happy with it. I just can't figure out why every morning it doesn't work until my wife uses her laptop?
When I'm at work, hers is the only computer on the local network getting assigned an IP by the router. Until she turns on her laptop, the DHCP client list is empty. Could it be that the router needs at least one connected device assigned an IP by its DHCP service in order for it to receive external connections?
I have an e300 router with my external hdd connected via the USB port. I am trying to figure out how to access the hdd remotely. I am not trying to get to it through remote desktop access. I have my laptop that I take with me when away from home but I would like to be able to access the hdd via Internet.
I have a Linksys E1200 router.My problem is I have installed a camera system that allows remote viewing.I cannot access the system through the E1200 I am not very knowledgeable in net working.What do I need to do to access the DVR from a remote computer?
For a while now I've been thinking of setting up a (hopefully) secure remote access from a location outside of my local network. Since I'm going to be away from where I usually live for about six months due to the location of my Course that I'm going to study, I want to be able to remotely access the router if something were to happen. Up until this point, I've been doing the management through a Teamviewer 6/7 remote access with my home computer and connecting from the inside IP address (Example: 192.168.1.1), but it's going to be taken away so I wouldn't be able to do that this year. Is it possible to set up a secure telnet on a Linksys E3000 Wireless Unit that way I can control it through Command Prompt, or would I have to set up Remote Management Access to use the unit outside the network through programs like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox?
I just purchased a Linksys e4200 router today along with a WD 2TB MyBook hard drive. My intent is to set these two up together so that i can share files on the hard drive with: Computers on my home network ( 1 Windows 7 desktop wired, 1 windows 7 laptop wifi, 1 XP netbook wifi)Computers remotely over the internetSmartphones (Android and Apple) on my home networkSmartphones (Android and Apple) remotely over the internet. My questions are: Set-up remote access for fileshare with smartphones?What is the easiest way to set-up and configure this?
I'm setting up WHS 2011 for the first time. When attempting to set up Remote Web Access, WHS continues to recoginze my E4200 model information and router IP address but delivers the message 'Remote Web Access to Your Server is Blocked'. Cisco and MS say the router is compatible with WHS and that it should set up through the wizard but no luck following many attempts, including manual set up of DHCP Reservation and Single Port Forwarding on ports 80/443 (not sure I did this correctly).
I've taken the router back to default settings with the exception of enabling Remote Management under the Remote Management Access section of the Administration menu tab; tried again with the same result. What settings to change to make this work?
I am wanting to access my IP camera over the Internet. I am not a computer wiz by any stretch and after a couple of failed attempts. My ISP is Comcast and they say that I have dynamic dns and should have no issues viewing my cameras. I know how to get to the port forwarding area of the router but am confused as to which ports to forward. The set up instructions for the camera (Airsight) suck. Screen shots of the set up don't match the actual router
I have a new E1200 router. I VPN from home to my work computer just fine. since I can remotely access the router from work...what setup section of the router would I need to utilize to go backwards and access my home PC thru remote desktop? NAT? if so what are the instructions to do so.
