Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Use Both Bands At Once?
Apr 25, 2013
I have a WRT320N, firmware version 1.0.05., Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, and a Hewlett Packard laptop.I would like to utilize both bands on my router at the same time for internet access, so that I can have the one my kids use shut down at a certain time but mine stay up.If not, what's the closest I can get, even if I have to purchase additional items to do so? Do I have to manually turn their band off when I want it off? And can I even have both bands in use at the same time?
I looked at my Cisco online info by access the IP address. I see the Access Restrictions tab. Can I even set usage by specific computer? If so how do I do that?
I just picked up a E4200 last nite and installed it and everything seems to be connecting ok, but I'm just not sure I have the optimal settings. This is my first dual band router.I have a mixture of G and N devices on the network - notebooks, desktop, phones, Wii. etc.What are the best settings for each of the 5 and 2.4 bands? I have read that you want to have the same SSID and encryption keys, so clients can go from one or the other seamlessly. It's mostly the Basic Wireless Settings that I want to get straight. Right now everything is on Mixed and Auto, and I'm not sure that's entirely correct.
Also, does anyone have any recommendations for a PCI and USB wireless adapter that works well with this router and provides the best range and throughput? I have both a laptop and desktop in a detached building with no physical cables. I want to ensure these have the best connection possible.
I have just installed the Cisco E2500 router and setup my wireless network.I bought the router hoping it would give me a stronger signal than my old Linksys G 2.4Ghz.Using inSSider I can see my router and unfortunately it looks like both the 2.4Ghz and the 5Ghz are both operating at the same time. . The signal stregth under RSSI is -60 for the 5Ghz and -57 for the 2.4Ghz.Do I need to switch one of these bands off or what do I do to get a stronger signal?....my old Linksys router was at -50.Where does one switch off a band anyway?
When I have both 2,4 and 5,0 GHz band enabled on the E4200 router my PC (WMP600N-PCI adapter) has max. 130Mbps.When I enable only the 5,0 GHz band it has a speed of 270Mbps.The same speed issue with my Dell laptop.Router and PCI adapter are new (3 days old) and both have the latest firmware.Both PC and laptop are running on W7.how to increase the speed with both bands enabled?
Just installed linksys wrt320n. Desktop and one laptop (wireless) connect. Both windows 7. A second laptop (Vista) errors out with message "the selected data rate is not correct". This laptop sees the router (since I see the router name and it validates the passphrase) but I cannot ping the router. I saw two messages on this site suggesting to enable WMM and use security WPA2. I have verified that both of these are so set.
I'm currently using my WRT320N router as an access point (connected to another linksys router), but I've lost my username and password to access the web-based utility. So I need to press the reset button and set it up again. Currently everything is working fine, but I've forgotten how to configure the router for this purpose, and I can't find instructions in the user's guide online. I seem to remember it being troublesome. I know I have to assign a different IP address (currently I'm using 192.168.1.113.) What other settings (if any) need to be changed?
Internet through DSL-Thompson TG 789 VN router ---> several yards --> Linksys WRT320N --> wired computer netwerk | |with printer | | ---> Wireless Netwerk --> laptops / phones <--- (WAN depending on strongest signal) | ---> several servers
The Thompson does the DHCP and routing. It is the gateway through the internet, IP 192.168.2.254 (mask 255.255.255.0).I can't replace the thompson since it is delivered by my provider. SSID = BertB I want to achieve that all the compuers / laptops / phone and printer are in one network and can communicate with each other So the only possibility, as far as I can see, is to set up the Linksys as a bridge.
I have to do the following at the Linksys but have some questions as mentioned below:
SSID = BertB (the same) channel = different from the channel used by Thompson DHCP = off IP = fixed (192.168.2.253) gateway = 192.168.2.254
how the thompson and the Linksys will build a connection with each other, or will this happen automatically through the above setup?Do I have to put the mac address of the thompson in the Linksys and/or vice versa?
I just bought a Linksys 320N router to replace another competitors router. I am trying to connect to my VPN server from outside my network. I have the external ip to my network. I setup the new 320N router just like the old router. set dmz ip to internal ip of vpn server, set port forwarding to 1723, both, internal ip of vpn server, I have a way to test the vpn while i am inside my network. So, I can watch the VPN server log and see the request come into the server and it times out with the Linksys 320 N hooked up. If I have the old router hooked up, the vpn establishes a connection.
I have a WRT320N router with firmware version 1.0.01 build 008. I just got an iPad and while it can find my router, I can't access the WiFi when I enter my password. I can use the router with my laptop so I know the connection and password are ok.I've seen two administrators on here suggest the same thing. And one person responded that it worked. The identical directions were:
Try changing some advanced wireless settings on the router.Connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable. Open the setup page of the router.Click on wireless tab and set the configuration view to manual. Change the wireless channel to 11. Save the settings.Go to wireless tab and click on Advanced wireless settings.Change Beacon interval to 75, RTS threshold to 2307 and fragmentation threshold to 2306. Save the settings.Try to connect to the wireless network again and see if that works.
1 - I think my computer already is connected to the router with the Ethernet cable - I mean there is an Ethernet cable attached to both my computer and my router - in slot 1 on the router
2 - the only thing I know how to access is the Linksys EasyLink Advisor. What and where is the setup page of the router?
I am running a WRT320N with Firmware 1.0.04Trying to Upgrade the Firmware to 1.0.05 it always fails at about 24% progress with a message saying an invalid value has been entered.I downloaded the firmware from your homepage twice so that the file is not corrupted
I have some major problem with my WRT320 router. For some reasonit won't let me connect to Age of Empires 2 (other, newer games work fine) via Hamachi. When i want to connect i can see the game but when i want to join it tries to connect but fails telling me i'm unable to join... I know the problem is in the router because when I connect my modem directly to my computer Age of Empires connects fine!
We have WRT320N (Model No.) and when I moved i notice that my wirelss network does not have internet connection. Even after I hook everything up it doesn't work, my computer does not recognize the network but the laptop does. I have prior knowledge about computers and the internet but I don't know why I am having a problem. Is it because I moved and the data in my previous home does not match the data here?
I'm using my WRT320N as a home router, I need more ipadresses to be delivered to my computers, yet I can't get my router to give med wider netmask range. In the list I get 255.255.255.0 - 255.255.255.240 or something like that. I need 255.0.0.0 on my network and that would be perfect if i could get that...
I've got the below setup, have the wrt320 setup as a switch / wifi ap, i'm totally unable to access its management page from pc1 but am able to via pc 3, why is this, how can i get around this? Routing? Also am unable to access pc3's resources from pc1..When i enter the ip of the wrt320 it thinks about it and before it has come up with the user/password screen but it soon dissapears and firefox comes up with a "Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 192.168.0.2." message.
I have a WRT320N router. It is hooked to a Comcast cable modem (Motorola SB5101). After using it for a few days, my Internet connection becomes very slow and I have to reset the router. Generally I get download speeds of 10+ Mbps, but then it slows to about 1 Mbps or less. One time I was only getting 300 Kbps.I'm using a wired connection when this happens, so wireless is not the issue. Also, there is no firmware update available for my router; 1.0.01 was already on it. The only settings that I've changed besides the password are related to the wireless.As soon as I unplug the router and plug it back in, it's fine again for a few days. At first I thought it might be my cable Internet connection, but because I'm not having to reset the cable modem?
i have a wrt320n router and it used to work before but my internet provider said that its a router issue might need to change the wep setting or channel or connect ps3 up through the routers list of accessible .. So basically its not registering the IP address given and the wep key isn't wrong but its not approving it . Not sure what to do. I tried unplugging the router and I also did the same for the modem no luck. Signals 100% and my lap top and wii connect fine.
Today has bought a router. Before it at me was D-link Dir 320. IPTV on DIR 320 worked perfectly. On WRT320N does not work. Firmware has updated to Ver.1.0.04 build 1. Prompt that it is necessary to make?
I have a problem when trying to configure my wrt320n , I put in the exact same config. as I had with my wrt54g, and I do mean the exact same, even the name and all, but when I try to save the config on Advance Routing I get the message "Invalid static route", I think it's a bug
I have a wrt320n. works good with all my computers. I bought a Visio tablet and I can only hook up to an open network. I want to be able to use my router with security. Such as wpa/wpa2 or wep. I tried all connections. Only the open network is the only one that I can connect to.This my first tablet and I never hooked one up before.
Kindle fire won't connect to my router WRT320N- I have the correct password- signal strength is excellent- I have set up other devices without problems- prompt reads "connection error unable to connect to access point. Please check the password you have provided."
I have a Linksys WRT320N Wireless Router and I am having an issue where it seems like gigabit (10/100/1000) ready computers are getting fast ethernet (10/100) speeds and fast ethernet computers/devices are receiving gigabit speeds. What I mean is the computers that are gigabit ready and are using cat6 cables are showing green icons on the Linksys WRT320N router and my network switch, which is only 10/100 ready and uses a cat5e cable to connect to the router, shows a blue icon indicating it is connected at gigabit speeds. Is the manual incorrect and green icons really mean gigabit speeds?
I have what should be simple. Home network on cable. WRT320N is main router cabled to desktop with GB card. It is hard-wired to a Netgear WNR3500L (also gigabit). That router is hard-wired to a desktop with GB card. For testing I connected a second machine hard-wired to the WRT320N with a 10/100 card. All machines recognized cards properly at correct speed. I ran LAN Speed Test between machines. Speeds were comparable between machines regardless of cards. GB -> GB was mid-30's write, mid-80's read with GB -> 10/100 a couple of ticks slower but not significantly. The LED's on both routers will show different color if GB connection and both showed GB for the desktop connection but not the interconnect between the routers. The routers are connected at about 100' with CAT5E and straight-through.
I am working with a WRT320N for some weeks now, but I don't get the fact that 40Mhz channel width is only allowed for Automatic channel selection.I keep losing connection and the channel keeps changing.I want an option to change the channel manually (like in every good WLAN router!!), also with N data rate (40Mhz channel width).I know how to select the best channel, so why aren't I able to change it the way I like it?
Just recently bought a Linksys E4200 router and it's been rocking so far! I upgraded from a WRT320N. However it seems that calling with SIP (using my Voip Buster account) doesn't work anymore.I don't seem to be able to register with the Voip service. Port is the standard 5060 (if my memory serves me well, I'm not at home now) and I already activated on the router the special tick for Voip ALG calling. Router is upgraded to the latest firmware and it's the V1 router.With all of the above, I still can't connect using SIP to VoiceBuster. It worked like a charm with the WRT320N so it's something with the router?.
I've been using WRT320N few days now and I am happy with it so far! It's not overheated as many people reported and performance is also great (wifi as well as gigabit ports). I tested all functions (NAT, Advanced Wireless Settings, Port Forwarding, Access Restrictions...) - all working great, but I am little stuck on the easiest one - configure it temporarily as regular gigabit switch with an IP address: I put my WAN cable and LAN cables in the 1-4 ethernet ports. NAT, DHCP and Firewall are disabled in the router. I have DHCP server in my network that is assigning IP addresses based on MAC address. In "Setup" > "Basic Setup" > "Router IP" I would like to set up automatic configuration - DHCP, but it is not possible, so I just type the same IP address that It should get from the DHCP server (in this case 10.109.249.42). Does all 1-4 ethernet ports have the same MAC address (in this case 00:25:9C:4D:16:86)? Everything is working fine, my computer's IP addresses are succesfully assigned (as well as wifi devices) from DHCP server in my network, but I feel like WRT320N's address is not assigned - the problem is I can't connect to router's administration under http://10.109.249.42. There is no IP restrictions for remote management.

I no longer have a software disc, but setup via the 192.168.1.1 page has worked out fine...until the last reset. After the last reset/reboot of the wifi, I was unable to set up the wifi beyond use with my laptop. This is, no doubt, user error.WRT320N.No hard wire, wifi is connected to the cable modem. Everything in the house was on the wireless.
Issue: Laptop finds and connects to wifi just fine, password works just fine.iPhone cannot even detect the wifi in the house (but finds every other wifi in the neighborhood)iPad cannot detect the wifi in the house (but finds every other wifi in the neighborhood)Desktop cannot detect the wifi in the house (but finds every other wifi in the neighborhood)What do I need to tweek in the admin page 192.168.1.1 to allow other computers to jack into my wifi?
