Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Listed As Secure But Would Never Connect

Jul 16, 2011

I recently had an issue with my laptop that required a complete reinstall of windows. As if this wasn't bad enough, I lost the password that I had for my router. Thinking it was no big deal I just went ahead and reset the router back to factory settings assuming I would be able to set up a network and encrypt it as I had before. Just testing the functionality, I was able to access my router while it was not encrypted and with the DSL modem plugged in, I also had internet access. I did this both wireless and with Ethernet cable.
 
Happy to see this, I decided it would be a good idea to re-encrypt my router to prevent any outside access. So as I had done before I went to the setting page where I set up a network with a web key. The only thing I entered at all was the paraphrase for the key then saved the setting to test it out. I refreshed the available wireless networks and mine was there and was now listed as secure. I then proceeded to click on the network, entered the key, and then waited for it to connect. The problem is, it never would connect. It continuously tries to connect, and says it is trying to "acquire the network address" but never does. Since then I have been on the hunt trying many different suggestions I have seen online, but none of the situations were quite like this one.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G What Is Priority Of A Device That Is Not Listed At All

Dec 8, 2011

I recently have been reading into QOS and have been fiddling with it on my Linksys WRT54G router. But there are a few things that seem limiting (at least on this version) so I have some questions.I live in a house with three other roommates all sharing the same internet connection. We don't have a bandwidth limit, so I don't care how much they're downloading. When I want to watch Netflix when they're all on the internet however, either my movies will come up in low quality, or will be interrupted.Under the Device Priority I put in my MAC address and set my priority to high. My first question is, what is the priority of a device that is not listed at all? There's only room for two devices so I can't put all three of my roommates in. I would assume their priority would automatically be the lowest.
 
I wanted to set certain common ports to be at a high priority. So far I just have port 53 for DNS entered with the highest priority, while my computer is set to high. Would this mean any computer making a DNS request would have a higher priority than my computer making a non-DNS query? I would like DNS to be a higher priority than myself streaming video.Finally, are there are ports that streaming video commonly use? I know there are ports for Netflix but I was also thinking of other Flash/HTML5 videos I might come across. Or do they tend to just use port 80?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200v2 Not All Devices Listed On Smart Wifi

Jan 8, 2013

I've noticed that my E4200v2 Smart-Wifi cloud doesn't show all the devices that are connected to my router.To test, last night we turned on EVERYTHING....4 iPod Touches, 2 Xbox's, 1 Blu-ray player connected to Netflix, 1 Directly receiver, 4 laptops,1 desktop,1 iPhone, and made sure all of them were connected to the Wi-fi and actually streaming / downloading/playing something the Smart WiFi only recognized about half of them as being connected. I rebooted the router and it picked up a few more but never accounted for all  the devices connected.
 
If you can't account for all the devices connected to your network, setting-up up reliable Parental Controls is almost impossible.Very disappointed and about ready to start looking for another brand of router. Sad, as I've been with Cisco/Linksys for over a decade and been very satisfied in the past.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea4500 - Device In Smart Wifi Is Listed With Two Multiple Apple

Jan 2, 2013

I am using a EA4500 and use Linksys Smart Wi-Fi to manage the device. In the household we have multiple Apple i devices. Somehow the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi combined two separte i devices (iPhone 5 and a 4th generation iTouch) to one user.The devices actually have different names, but the Smart Wi-Fi is combining them into one device. So I can't use Parental Controls on one of the devices.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Cannot Connect To Internet

Sep 22, 2011

Router: WRT54G
Network: 802.11g (and I'm using WEP)
Wifi Adapter: Intel R Centrino R Ultimate-n 6300 AGN
No. of devices connected to wireless network: 5

My problem is that whenever 2 devices have joined the wireless network, I will not be able to do so despite placing the laptop or iPhone right next to the router, hence getting excellent signal strength. Or, if I am already connected to the network, I get knocked out repeatedly. I don't think it is a hardware or software issue because I'm still able to connect and get a very stable connection after someone leaves the wireless network.This is getting frustrating and I have tried all ways and means to resolve this but to no avail. Is this about some setting that I can tweak, e.g. to allow more users onto the network? But this has already been configured to '50'!

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Cannot Connect To FTP Sites?

Feb 1, 2009

I could not log into any of the 4 FTP sites that I normally update without immediately getting disconnected. The message I am getting from the servers is "Port command failed, error loading directory - disconnected". To save some time and posts, here are the facts....1.) It is definately not my DSL modem. When I connect directly with the modem, without a router, I can connect to FTP fine2.) I have already done a /flushdns in IPconfig.3.) I have already done the typical power off/power on/reboot procedure numerous times.4.) I have already tried PASV mode, and tried turning PASV mode off as well.5.) My login information is correct, and I have problems on multiple sites.6.) This problem has been reported before by other users of WRT54G, but the other forums I see have no solution to the problem.7.) I have already tried using other PC's and different FTP clients on my home network. No matter which PC or laptop I use behind the router firewall, I can't maintain FTP connection. 8.) I have never had to open ports to be able to connect to FTP, since I am the one doing the request. I did also try opening ports 20 and 21. 9.) XP firewall is disabled. 10.) I have tried both ethernet ports on my PC. But then again, that is irrelevant because none of my other PC's which connect wirelessly, can connect either.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Unable To Connect On PC / Mac

Sep 8, 2010

I my parents have a WRT54G linksys router, they have a DSL modem.  Everything was working fine with the wireless network until one random day POOF! the wireless no longer would connect on laptops.  However, the internet is working just fine with the computer that is hardwired up throught the router.  Since this is working it lets me know that the router is working fine and routing the connection through hardwire.  Hard wired works on laptops but all laptops are unable to join the network and most of the time it will not show up in the list of available networks.Even my iphone wont connect saying unable to join network.  We bought a brand new linksys router and same problem.  I then took his old router to my house and hooked it up...and WOW it works as it should all devices can connect...even my iphone.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V5 Won't Connect To Internet?

Oct 12, 2010

I am replacing a WRH54G with a WRT54G.  First I unplugged everything and waited 5 minutes. Then I plugged my ethernet cord from the DSL modem into the WRT54G. Then I plugged in the DSL modem. I waited for the lights to stop blinking. Then I plugged in the WRT54G and waited for LEDs to show connection. Then I plugged the ethernet cord from the WRT54G to the computer. Then I turned on the computer. I was able to access the Interface for the WRT54G but I was not able to connect to the internet. I tried power cycling multiple times both the DSL modem and the WRT54G. I was unable to access the internet. Finally I plugged the WRH54G back in and everything worked fine. why the old WRH54G can connect to the internet and the WRT54G cannot?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Unable To Connect To WRT54G

Feb 20, 2010

Checked cable router (brighthouse), working. Router (all lights on but network traffic flashing indicates one way traffic). So I go to my wife's computer. It too has no connection. I open my laptop to connect to the wireless, IT WORKS! Pull power on Cable Modem and Router, wait 60 secs, power up Cable Modem and then power up Router (I know it wasn't nec to do modem but I wanted a clean start). Wireless is still working, no LAN. I can't even connect 192.168.1.1. Linksys software says it can't detect the modem. Reset time, hit the magic button in the back and sure enough everything stops working (which I figured). Still can't connect to it, and now I've lost wireless. I connect computer directly to Cable Modem and type this message. Seems to me that Router has failed.

I open the router using "admin", reset Wireless Security and reset  my password. Wireless laptops, wireless camera now works fine but now iPhone will not connect? I have double checked the password, it is the same as the router. Is there something else in the router that needs changing for the iPhone connection?

I have a WRT54G router and a Dell computer. I have been connecting wirelessly to this router with this computer for about 3 years. Now, the computer sees the router but it won't connect to the internet. I have other computers that connect fine, so I thought it was the wireless adapter in my computer. However, I went to someone else's house and connected perfectly.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V6 - Unable To Connect Wirelessly

Dec 14, 2011

Im running a linksys wireless router, WRT54G V6 with firmware 1.02.8. It worked before I moved after I moved I can't connect via wireless. hard line works. i've tried resting to factor, i've tried not using ses, not using custom ssid. I've rest it like 5 times retarted the computers. I've hit the little cisco systems button on the front, this makes it work for a few minutes. When I hit the button it will go out then come back on white, and blink around 1-2 blinks per second, it will do this for maybe 1-2min. then stops and changes back to orange. and i get nothing from it. the WLAN light is on like it's working but I cannot detect it with my desktop or laptop, can i can detect 3 other routers around me. I've tried pretty much everything i know to do, tried flashing it, updating, about the only option i have left is throwing it out the window.
