Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS - Reset Security Button Completely Shut Out Connection

Oct 3, 2011

I was in the Wireless tab>Basic Wireless Settings and then I clicked the "Reset Security" button.  I don't know what that did but I've been completely shut out of my connection ever since and I don't know how to fix it. I tried doing the install sequence of the router just now (Clone MAC address, then release and renew DHCP, power cycle modem, router, and PC) but it still didn't work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Connection Reset During Firmware Upgrade

May 8, 2012

I have a Linksys WRT54GS (v5) router. I noticed that my firmware was outdated and tried to upgrade it tonight. During the upgrade progress, the browser reset the connection and now  cannot access my router configuration pages.I did a hard reset. Then I did the 30-30-30 reset.
The reset worked but no matter what I do, I cannot navigate to any readable page within the router. I get the log in box and successfully log into the router. However, the configuration page(s) are all jumbled and devoid of useful information. It almost looks like a web page that needs flash to be enabled. Lots of colors and boxes but no text or links to other configuration pages
I know it's an old router but it has served me well. I would love to reinstall the old firmware (or new!) and copy my saved configuration file back to the router.Is there a way to access the configuration via a command line interface?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g V2 Reset Button Not Resetting Password?

May 13, 2013

I was given this router (it's my 3rd one) and cannot get the reset button to reset the password. I have run throught a 30/30/30 reset as well as just holding the button in for the standard 30 seconds.
I know the router works, as in i can ping it. It asks for a password when i go to, but *blank* and "admin" do not work. When i click the cancel button it displays a pink(salmon) screen that says "401 Unauthorized Authrization required". (all of this is when i am connected to it with an ethernet cable to #1)
When it's sitting there it has an led lit over power and one ove wlan which flickers from time to time.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54gs - Security For Cascaded LAN?

Dec 25, 2012

I successfully cascaded a WRT54gs V6 router to a LinksKey wired router LAN to LAN.  My concern is I get a warning on my one computer saying it is an unsecured connection.  I have not seen a way to go in and make any kind of security settings.  Most of the files on my main computer which is connected via the wired router are labeled as private files.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT300N Dropped Connection Completely

Jul 4, 2011

I've had this WRT300N for several years and it has worked very well.It suddenly dropped all wireless connections and no one can re-connect.  My main pc is hard wired directly to the router and works perfectly as always.  3 wireless pc's and 3 handheld devices suddenly can't connect. I've powered down my modem and router for several minutes, but nothing changed.  The firmware was upgraded a long time ago and there are no other upgrades available.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Fatal Security Flaw In WRT54GS?

Feb 2, 2012

Firmware is 1.52.0.  Model is WRT54GS.I'm configured with WPA2-PSK/AES.  Broadcasting my SSID.  No MAC access filtering.HTTPS access only to the config pages.  Custom (not default) password.  Remote management disabled.
Summary:The router simply "forgot" its assigned SSID and reverted to broadcasting as "linksys".It also ceased encrypting its broadcast.I was able to log in and change it back.  It retained many of the OTHER settings I had previously configured.
Details:Two days ago, I noticed my client (laptop) could no longer see the usual SSID that I connect to on my home network.However, there was a new SSID in the area, named "linksys", broadcasting UNSECURED.Coincidentally, this new "linksys" access point had the exact same signal strength that my usual access point typically had.So, I connected to it, you know, just to see.I was only able to access the config pages at my custom IP address (not at x.y.0.1), prefixed with the "https://" scheme identifier.And it didn't prompt for a password.  Hopefully because it recognized the cookie my browser still carried from the last time I logged in to it.  But maybe because it had temporarily dropped ALL of its security measures...It was definitely my router.  Just, stripped of its usual encryption/authentication and its usual SSID.So, I switched the SSID back to what it usually is.And I turned the WPA2-PSK/AES encryption back on.The router "remembered" my WPA2 passphrase, which it displayed to me as plaintext when I pulled down the "security mode" dropdown menu and selected "WPA2 Personal".After re-configuring, it works as well as ever.Is this a known security flaw in the WRT45GS? seems like a fatal one, as far as network security is concerned.Is it limited to one firmware release?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Signal Vanishes Completely / Keeps Dropping Connection?

Dec 26, 2012

My old WRT54G V8 router has been acting up lately. It keep dropping the connection out of the blue. Sometimes I'd be browsing the Internet when the router's signal vanishes completely, it disappears from the list of available wireless networks on not just my computer, but my smartphone and all other devices in the household! Other times I keep connected to the network but there's no access to the Internet. Everything seems fine on the ISP's part, I can connect just fine directly from my modem, so I'm certain the problem is with the router. Besides, these problems are solved by just power cycling the router.

Linksys Wireless Router :: VPN Connection Failed When Using WRT54GS

Sep 12, 2011

Currently I have Verizon DSL and which supplied me with a Westell 7500 modem/wireless router.  I am also connecting a Linksys WRT54GS (firmware Version: 7.2.08) to the Westell 7500.
When I connect via cable or wireless to Linksys WRT54GS I am not able to establish VPN connection. I get the error “Error 619: A connection to the remote computer could not be established. So the port used for this connection was closed”.
However, when I connect via cable or wireless to Westell 7500 I am able to connect to VPN.
I tried resetting the Linksys WRT54GS to factory settings and reconfigured but no success to VPN.
At work we have a Windows 2003 setup with VPN Role on it and on my laptop I am using the built in VPN connection within Windows 7.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS V7 Doesn't Recognize Internet Connection

Oct 20, 2012

I have a WRT54GS V7 that I have been running for a few years now with no problems until today.My wife used the internet from her laptop through the day but this evening after she moved to the bedroom and booted up the laptop, she found there was no internet connection. I tried what I know in cases like these, unplugging the router or modem for brief periods of time to try and get things going again but to no avail. So I tried using the Easylink Advisor which basically suggested the same process.
At this point, my internet connection is coming in from the cable just fine. I have access on the desktop which is wired and works with no problems. The modem and router lights are both signaling that everything is fine but no wireless internet coming from the router.
Using the desktop I tried looking for some solutions and tried resetting the router. I ultimately called customer support but being out of warranty they wanted too much although she suggested that I needed to reconfigure the router since I had reset it. I followed the online instructions for reconfiguring but still have gotten nowhere.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs Switch From Dsl To Comcast / Now No Internet Connection

Jan 5, 2011

Hard wired network (15 workstations.) I had a dsl modem connected to my network switch and linksys wrt54gs router connected to that modem. All hard wired workstations had internet access AND there was a wireless internet connection. With any wifi device I could access the internet.I switched from dsl to comcast. All hard wired work stations still have internet. but when I plug my wireless router into the modem (comcast business IP gateway) there is no wireless internet connection. The hard wired workstations can still get online and there IS a wireless network, but it does not allow internet access (page cannot be found etc.)
Comcast says it absolutely should work. Linksys says it requires simple reconfig of router settings (reset router, clone mac address.) I have read knowledge base articles from linksys and followed each step. The lan ports of the modem are all working if I connect to them directly with a laptop and cable. I have reset router multiple times, cloned mac address, dhcp release/renew. 
My physical connections are correct.  In the router set up utility, I can see the mac adrdress and ip address but can't tell if the IP is from the modem or the router. Default gateway is always in the router AND in any workstation ipconfig screen. Ip addresses are 192.168.1.xx in ipconfig at any workstation AND in the router set up status. 
I cannot access internet via router even if plugged directly into it. It is as if the router is not getting the correct information from the modem. However, it worked perfectly with the DSL modem the day before we changed.My workstations are all hard wired and work. I simply want to have Wi-Fi also... for phones and laptops w wireless etc.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Factory Defaults / Resetting Connection Type From PPPoE To Bridge

Jan 17, 2012

I'm having a very difficult time getting my WRT54GS to work with my Westell 6100 modem. I've been bouncing around gathering info, and what I've learned is that the goofy way CenturyLink tech support told me to hook up my old wired router (modem line into outgoing (LAN) router port) is because the Westell 6100 is a "smart modem/router". Therefore, when I run the Linksys setup CD, it sees the modem as a router, and won't properly configure. I've also learned that the Westell modem can be "dumbed down" into simply a modem by putting it into "bridge mode", which is where I'm at right now - trying to get it reset to factory defaults and resetting the connection type from PPPoE to Bridge. In the meantime, I also reset the WRT54GS to factory defaults, and now I've got another problem: the router will not allow me to set up encryption. The default setting is "Disabled", and when I click the down arrow and try to make any selection at all (preferred selection is WPA2 Personal), it reverts to Disabled. I've also tried to change the router's IP address to (and alternately to, so it won't conflict with the modem's IP, and it freezes up every time I try.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200v2 - Way To Shut Off Internet Access

Dec 18, 2012

I have the e4200v2 with Smart Wifi (formerly Connect Cloud). On my previous routers, I've been able to shut down internet access for my ENTIRE home network at a specific time each night and then re-allow access again at a specfic time the next morning.
In using the Parental Controls on the 4200v2, it appears I have to set times for EACH and EVERY device on my network.  I have 4 kids and a very heavy wireless network, including 3 Xboxes, 1 PS3, a Bluray player, a Directv receiver, an RCA media streaming device, 4 laptops, 1 desktop, 4 IPODs, and 1 IPhone on my network.
My goal is to shut down the internet access completely each night at Midnight, then re-allow access the next morning at 6am in order to ensure my kids aren't up all night playing games, etc. But the the Parental Controls on the 4200v2, it appears I have to do this for EVERY device, instead of being able to just shut down access across the board like I could with the old Linksys web-based interface.

BUT no matter how I've fiddled with the wireless settings I cannot get any of the laptops or mobile phones to connect wireless to the network.The Windows software on the laptops 'finds' the router OK but for some reason the router seems unwilling to supply an IP address.I've checked ALL of the settings that I can think of, and all are correct ... well, all are exactly the same as my old router which worked perfectly.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Completely Quits Periodically

Sep 14, 2011

I purchased an E4200 from a retail store about ten days ago.It completely quits periodically. Even the managment interface is gone. It seems to just die. The only fix is to unplug it, count to ten and plug it back in.router also gets extremely hot. I have tried locating it in several places, no matter where I put it, it still gets very hot. Right now I have it straddling a trash can so that it has about two feet of air space under it. It is still uncomfortable to the touch.
When I contacted technical support all they would do is walk me through setting it up from scratch again. I've done that many times, and I do not want to do it agian. Setting the router up agian will not make it cool down.
1. Exchange this for another one, probably from the same batch, at the store?
2. Fight with Linksys tech support to get a waranty return? (Any input on how to get them to do this?)
3. Return this router altogether (paying the retailer's 15% restocking fee) and look for another brand?
