Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wired Connections Stopped Working?

Jul 31, 2012

My router was working just fine forever, the only computer that will connect VIA wire is my desktop, everything else for it to connect to my network it has to go wireless. Things like my blu ray player just will not connect. I am not an expert at all, but why is only the wireless working? I can use the Cisco connect and adjust the settings if need be.

Linksys WRT54GS Wireless Router Has Stopped Working

May 29, 2012

I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router that has stopped working. All it will do is all 4 of the Ethernet port lights on the front light up solid green along with the Internet light. Is there any hope of fixing this?

It wouldn't make that much of a difference, but I already purchased a new LInksys Cisco EA3500, but I cannot get it to do my port forwarding. I have tried everything and nothing works. Have spent hours on the phone with tech support with no solution. My old WRT54GS just simply worked. The port forwarding worked perfect. I have tried the exact same setup in the new EA3500 and no luck no matter what I try.

So, is there anything I can do to get the old WRT54GS working? I have tried holding the reset button in for 1 minute and then unplugging it

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Wired Connection Stopped Working?

Jun 24, 2012

I have the WRT54G router for years and use it to provide both a wireless network for our home computers and a wired network for by internet phone that connects me to my office phone system and for my work computer and printer. Last week, the wired network stopped working. I checked the wiring and plugged my wire into all four of the ports in the back of the router with no success.  I followed the troubleshooting procedure that I found and changed the MTU setting.  I tried to update the firmware but the screen seemed to lock up and I was unable to complete the task.

Linksys WRT54GS Too Many Connections On Router

Mar 3, 2012

I am currently using a Linksys WRT54GS router. In my house we have about 15 connections to it with all but 2 of them wireless. Not all of the devices can get on at the same time so I called Linksys and they said our router only supports up to 11 or 12 connections.My question is how do I determine the amount of connections a router can handle at once so that I do not have this problem any more.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS With Mac OS 10.6.8 And RCN Cable Modem Not Working?

Sep 27, 2011

I have a Linksys WRT54GS, version 6 with Mac OS X (version 10.6.8) hooked up to a Scientific Atlantic cable modem, with RCN as the ISP.
 
Recently, RCN had some network issues, and so I had to power down and reset my modem. The modem is working fine now -- no problems at all when the Mac is connected direclty to the modem.
 
The router's network is OK in that I can connect the Mac wirelessly to the network, but I can't connect to the internet through the router (through neither the wireless or wired connection).
 
I have downloaded the latest firmware update for the router, following the Linksys site instructions.
 
I did call Linksys tech support on the advice of RCN, and they said that the router does appear to be working (power, WLAN, and Internet lights are on), but they would be charging me nearly the cost of a new router to fix the problem.

Linksys Wired Router :: EA4500 - Wired Connections Have Long Ping Times

Sep 23, 2012

I purchased and set-up the EA4500 on Thursday.  Friday my ISP (Charter) was out and worked on connection for over 2 hours due to slowness issues.  Connected directly to modem I get normal ping times on whichever computer is connected.  When I get the computer connected by the router (hard wired) I get very long ping responses up to 900ms.  They are all over the place 30ms (I can live with that), up to the 900's.  I contacted Linksys support last night, who had me update to the cloud firmware and change MT U to 1300, have not noticed a difference.  I did end up doing a hard reset on the router last night after I lost tech support.  We were disconnected with router rebooted, and I didn't have the patience to connect again last night.
 
It was so slow on my work computer, a pint to yahoo timed out.  The computers connecting to router are
 
XP SP3 (mine)
Win 7 Home (IPV6 turned off)
Work laptop that uses VPN and VOIP

Linksys Wired Router :: E2000 - Security Wired Ethernet Connections

Sep 19, 2011

I have an e2000 wireless router and have several devices connected by ethernet cable including private data on an external hard drive.  I am planning to allow a tenant in another building connect via an ethernet cable connected to my router.  Can I limit that computer (tenant's computer) from accessing all other devices connected by ethernet cable to my router?  I know can password protect wireless access and limit access to the internet that way -- but my question is specifically to connections by ethernet cable.

Linksys Wired Router :: E4200 No Longer Accepts Wired Connections?

Oct 11, 2012

My E4200 router no longer accepts any WIRED connections. I can connect from the modem to the computer and everything works as expected. I can connect other computers wirelessly to the router. I cannot connect any laptops WIRED to the router. Nothing has changed on the systems to restrict internet access. There is something wrong with the router and the WIRED ports. I tried going through the troubleshooting on this site but it was of little to no assistance. The Cisco Connect utility doesn't appear to accomplish anything either. My guess is because I cannot connect to the WIRED ports on the router to connect to the internet to allow for whatever troubleshooting that needs to be done.

Linksys - Wireless Router Not Working / Network Stopped

Jul 24, 2012

I have a Century Link modem connected to a Linksys router. I have three computers hooked up wireless. I used another computer to hook up with the ethernet cable because that wouldn't work wireless for some reason. A little while after that, the Linksys network stopped working completely(all three computers could not access the internet). Now I can only connect to the internet if I use a ethernet cable from the modem.

My router randomly stopped working after I bumped into the wire.  It still shows up as a network you can connect to, but whenever I try to connect, it keeps saying there is a problem with my connection.  I tried using a different internet cord, but nothing changes.  I even tried to reinstall my router and still no dice.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54g V3 Wi-Fi Stopped Working?

Feb 2, 2012

Last night, my wireless router suddenly stopped working. I no longer saw my router listed in my available wireless networks, and neither could my girlfriend from her computer. I unplugged the router to see if one of the available networks had disappeared in case my router had somehow been reset, and nothing changed so my computer isnt even seeing my router. Right now, I am wired through the router so I know the router works, but the wireless part doesnt for some reason. I was looking up stuff in the FAQ, and think the firmware is corrupted since the LEDs are all blinking. I was trying to update my firmware following the instructions I found using tftp.exe, however it failed. One problem is that I can't set up a static IP address since I need to access the web-based utility to check my DNS server but I cannot access the web-based utility anymore (maybe cause of the corrupted firmware?). On a related note, there is someone else in my building using a linksys with the default network name of linksys. I had changed my network's name and security-protected it, though that is all likely gone now since I tried to reset the router. My question is what will the network name of my router be if I saw it since "linksys" is already taken. or will there just be two of them?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Just Stopped Working?

Oct 19, 2007

I have WRT54G connected to a cable modem for internet service. Came home at lunch yesterday and all was working fine. Came home after work last night and couldn't connect to the internet. Called Charter cable this morning and their troubleshooting showed I can connect to the internet fine if I bypass the router, so the issue must be with the router (and of course not their problem...). How do I trouble shoot this? I've tried powering down the router and releasing and renewing IP addresses but it hasn't worked.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Valet Plus M20 Stopped Working Suddenly

May 30, 2012

My M20 Valet Plus stopped working suddenly last night.  Now no power lights will come on and it now longer transmitts as a connection point . No apparent sign that it's alive. I've owned it troublefree for just over a year, but it is out of warranty. Any way to tell if there is hope of reviving it or if I'm just out of luck?  Nothing happened at my end to cause this -- no power interruptions or other odd occurrences.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT110 Suddenly Stopped Working?

Oct 17, 2010

A couple days ago I noticed that my wireless internet connection on my iPhone would cut in and out, then stopped all together. I also had no connection on my mac which is wired to the WRT110. I bypassed the WRT110 and then I had a connection on my Mac meaning the WRT110 is the problem. I haven't changed or added anything lately that could've caused this....

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Suddenly Stopped Working?

Jul 25, 2011

I have the Linksys WRT54G And it was working fine for years! Then today my computer shut down and when I turned it back on there was a connection but my computer was not responding to any commands. The icon shows full connectivity excellent connection. When I try to go to a web page it shows Connection Error and cannot get to any web pages.I am able to get on other wireless connections from neighbors but not mine. I have gone thru different directions on here and I am not technical and don't understand what is being said. I try to go to 192.168.1.1 and it asks for a password which I don't have. I have tried everything such as password and admin and get nothing.I am able to get my ip address and default gateway address and don't know the next step.

Linksys Wired Router :: Cannot Connect To Internet Through WRT54GS

Mar 2, 2013

I have a WRT54GS router, and starting today I am completely unable to access the internet through it. If I connect my computer directly to my modem, I can access the internet, but if I try to connect through the modem, all I get is "DNS server not responding".I've tried changing the DNS server address on the router configuration page, but it doesn't work.
 
Here's what my ipconfig /all shows:
 
C:Windowssystem32>ipconfig /all

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 With WRT54GS In Same Network?

Sep 13, 2011

I currently have a LinkSys BEFSR81 connected to my cable modem as I need at least 6 wired ports for my house network.  I also have a WRT54GS that is currently unused, but I would like to add it to the network so I can have some wireless connectivity as well. 
 
Assuming that it's possible, what's the best way to combine these two units into the same network?  Can the WRT54GS simply be connected downstream from the BEFSR81 via one of the open ports?  I'm assuming that I'll have to change the IP address on the wireless unit to make it individually accessible for configuration, status checking, etc.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT400N Stopped Working With Ethernet Connection?

Jul 28, 2011

I've had the WRT400N for about a year and a half now and just last night it stopped sending out data when connected to my cable modem. I've tried connecting the modem directly to my Mac and it works just fine (that's how I'm sending this message now). But when the modem is connected to the router, I get no data. It connects to both the 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz networks, but it refuses to send data through the pipe. I've tried power cycling both the modem and the router to no avail.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Internet Stopped Working On Laptop

Jul 11, 2012

I purchased an e4200 about 6 months ago and it worked great until the other night the Internet stopped working on my laptop (wireless). I tried unplugging both my modem (Motorola Surfboard) and router and plugging them back in, but no luck. I can accesss the Internet when plugged directly into the router (with both my PC and laptop), so it looks like the issue is with the e4200. To make matters worse (and I fear much worse), I can't even access the admin page to the router through either the Cisco Connect software or through the IP address. I've tried resetting it, I've tried the 30/30/30 reset (holding the reset button while doing an unplug and pluging back in), and reinstalling the Cisco Connect software, all to no avail.
 
I've found threads where others have not been able to access the admin page, but they still had access to the Internet url... I haven't found a similar thread where the router doesn't seem to work at all. A few other bits of information I can think of (let me know if there's other information I can provide):The Cisco logo light flashes slowly after reset which I believe is expected.The lights in back of the router seem to work as intended.Running Windows 7 Diagnostics finds the connection "doesn't have a valid IP configuration" and "The default gateway is not available."

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3200 - Sharing Files Over Network Stopped Working

Sep 23, 2012

I tried searching google and Cisco Home Community for this answer, but no luck. Maybe I didn't phrase my search correctly. I have an external drive connected to a mac mini which is shared on the network. When transferring folders to or from that external drive, our internet connection stops working until the transfer finishes, then comes back up. I've tested this in a variety of ways. Any transfer of data from shared folders in any combination of devices causes internet to stop working both on wired and wireless devices until the transfer is done, then they all work again. Router firmware: 1.0.03.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT150N Unit Disconnecting From Wired Connections

Jan 21, 2008

I purchased a WRT150N in early Dec 07.  I had a number of problems with the unit disconnecting from wired and wireless connections erratically anywhere from 1/2 hr to 10 hrs. of operation.  Troubleshoot thru Linksys chat.  Ended up replacing router.  Now  I am having the same problem with replacement router.  I've updated my windows XP, SP2, updated Ethernet driver and manually reconfigured router per Linksys advise.  Wife and my laptops have N adapters, primary PC is wired in. It seems to disconnect all connections at same time, totally random. The only way to reconnect is to power down router for a few seconds and then power up.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wired Connections No Longer Work

Jul 14, 2011

I'm trying to fix the network at a student housing building and the system is kind of a mess.  We bought a new E4200 to replace our old Linksys router which no one knows the admin pw to.  We have four switches for 50 connections throughout the four story house and when switching the connections over to the new E4200 all of the wired connections no longer work.  Switch back to the old router and presto.  How do I need to change the settings with the E4200 to get it to work?
 
Also, as it's a thick old house the E4200's wireless only covers maybe half of it...I purchased two wireless repeaters to put on the 3rd and 4th floors, are these simple to install with the router?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Wired Connections Displaying Different Names

Jul 22, 2011

So whenever i plug in my computers with an ethernet cord to my router i get an older, different ssid name displayed in local area connections instead of the one being displayed on the wireless network. For one computer it displays the old ssid name 3011, with a 2 right next to it (i think thats because i had another router with the same name), i changed the ssid twice, but when i plug it into the computer it still displays 3011 2. The other computer displays the first newer ssid but not the official one listed on the wireless network. Either way neither of my computers display the name i have as the ssid when plugged into the router with a cord. do i need to do something else so the names match? i reset the router and updated the firmware before writing this, it didnt do anything. i have windows 7 business for both machines.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Two Desktops Connected Via Wired Connections

Jan 6, 2012

I have a Linksys WRT120N with two desktops connected via wired connections.In the house, there are two students accessing the Internet through WiFi via the WRT120N.One of the laptops (on an Apple laptop)  seems to lose its' connection from time to time.The other laptop (Lenovo) is located the furthest distance from the router and only gets two bars signal strength.Would my best option to improve the signal strength for the Lenovo laptop and hopefully, also increase reliability for the Apple laptop be to purchase a new router such as a Linksys E1500 with speed boost or would it be best to try a Linksys range extender (RE1000)?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs Wifi Download Speed 1/3 Of Wired Speed

Dec 28, 2010

I just discovered that my wireless download speeds are 5Mbps, compared to 16Mbps if my laptop is connected directly to the modem or wired through the router.  Uploads are 2Mbps either way.  I have a WRT54GS v.6 with firmware version v1.52.8 which I updated today, completed by setting factory default through the router webpage after I discovered this discrepancy.  The firmware update did not improve the download speed appreciably, if at all.Should the wireless connection be that much slower than the wired connection through the router?  If not, what sort of issues could I be having to account for this?
 
I did just replace my modem when I discovered I was having erratic speedtests and that corrected that problem.  That is when I became aware of the wireless issue, so not sure how long that has been the case.  I have Charter's 16/2 HSI, living in a sparsely populated area with solid internet service.  There is no external nor internal interference on this 2.4Ghz band.

However, now I can't access certain website like Hotmail, Facebook, a weather site and others.But I can connect to most other websites, stream video, etc. Any suggestions why I can't connect to Hotmail, Facebook, etc???? I have 4 computers (3 wired, 1 wireless) connected through the router and they all do the same thing.
