Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54gX2 / Having Wireless Signal But No Connection
Aug 8, 2012
I have a Linksys WRT54gX2. When I make a wired connection from my modem to my computer (Vista - latest SP) I get a connection to the internet on my computer. When I run a network cord from the modem to the wireless router and then a network cord to the computer, two things happen:I do not get a connection to the internet on my computer.With laptops and iPods that are trying to connect wirelessly, I can see that the wireless signal exists, and the devices can connect to the signal, but no internet connection passes through. There are no firmware updates that I can find for this device, I have powered the router on/off for 30 seconds, and I have used the reset button.
I have 1 Windows XP PC, and 2 Windows 7 laptops. And I'm also going to connect a new TV to Internet.I have the router WRT54GX2 version 1.sometimes the XP PC has a good internet connection, but on the Windows 7 laptop, I don't have the internet connection. And if I look at the list of the Wireless Network connections, I don't see mine!So can I do something on the router to fix this problem? Or should I buy a new router which can work well with 3 PCs (with Windows 7) and 1 TV connected at the same time?
I have a WRT54GX2 router and my laptop is connected wirelessly to the router. It worked fine before but now, the connection is only local, it's not connected to the internet.On the router, it says: Default Gateway: 0.0.0.0.I think that it should say 192.168.1.1 instead.I tried dhcp release and renew but it didn't work.The firmware version is 1.01.22.
How to get this unit to hand out the Ip numbers in my network with dhcp but to allso assign these numbers in accordance to the mac address. I want o make sure the same computers get the same internal ip and not random ones?
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.
I have been spending days !!! trying to resolve why my laptop pc disconnects frequently from its wireless connection. No discernable pattern to disconnects, totally random. Happens in cycles of disconnect/auto reconnect or will go hours of stable operation. What I have noticed is tht the connection speed seems to vary, from a hig of 54.0 Mbps to as low as 2.0 Nbps. At same time the desktop pc (hard wired to modem) stays connected at 100 Mbps.Using RCA modem, WRT160n v3 router.
Comcast had us unplug our modem in order to upgrade to their new faster speed. now our wireless router won't work. We've reset the router twice. we can set up the wireless network but we cannot connect to it. The connection last for about 5 minutes and then we get an error, cannot read IP address. Comcast says it is not their problem and linksys says they can't assist either.
I have several E4200 routers deployed in our library district. In one branch, we have been having sporadic problems with computers not being able to maintain a connection. Typically the computer will connect and then the connection will drop and Windows will display the yellow error triangle on the wifi signal strength display.I have swapped the router with another brand new E4200 with the latest firmware but am still having this problem.
We have a wireless internet service. Not satellite. We basically have an antenna on our house that picks up the signal from a tower a mile or two away. I used the e3000 router when we lived in town with broadband internet and it worked fine. I can't get it to keep a hold of a signal. I can connect to the router from the computers but the router drops the signal from the tower. I have an old router that the wireless company was kind enough to lend me that works , but the signal is weak and it could die at any moment... I"m at my wits end.. I have an expensive piece of equipment that wont hold the signal. I have updated the firmware and the Cisco connect software..
I have a wrt160n as my main router cascading to an e1200 at the other end of my house. The idea was to enhance the wireless signal there. Went thru extended discussion with Cisco support settnig the system up.
Ip address of e1200 is set more than 5 apart from primary router, dhcp is disabled. The connection bewtween routers is Wan to Wan.
I have wired signal at the e1200 but no wireless signal?
I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router and a few weeks ago my wireless connection started to become inconsistent, it would randomly drop service or be very slow, and now it has become very inconsistent and slow, all the while the wireless signal would be 4-5 bars.On my windows 7 desktop, often times the yellow triangle with the exclamation mark pops up over the signal strength indicator when its at 4-5 bars.I've tried changing to 2 different routers and its the same, and the problem is persistent for all computers in the house.I've connected directly via ethernet to the modem and router and service was fine.There are a few wireless networks in the area,some with quite strong signals, but I downloaded the xirrus wifi inspector and it says I'm not sharing a channel (channel 1) and though I'm ~15ft from the router, the signal is ~65dbm, which seems low and is almost equivalent to neighbor's wireless strength.
I am using the E2500 with the Wireless N-pci adapter with dual band, both with the latest drivers / firmware, and I am getting extremely low signal quality and connection speed when connecting to the 5 Ghz network.My computer is no more than 15 feet away from the router, and on the same level. I also verified the connection with the 2.4 Ghz band, and it reads as excellent, and with 54 mps. Using 5 Ghz I get one bar of signal quality (very poor) and no more than 13 mps connection speed.
My wireless router has been spotty since my cable company installed a new modem for cable internet. I have powercycled several times, downloaded new firmware, rebooted and am still having problems. Lately when I do finally get on the internet with a wireless device, the signal strength is very low. It is low on my iphone, on my Mac laptop and also on my Samsung Bluray player. Lately a window keeps popping up when I am trying to watch netflix that states my band width is too low, even though it has been working fine for 2 months. Is my router outdated?
Just got the E4200 and it seemed great at first. Connected at 450mbps at close range (maybe 6ft away) and got 223mbps transfer.It seems that recently my signal is much weaker. I'm around 6-8ft away from the router and I'm getting between 270-360mbps, which to me is poor given the short range.
InSSIDer says the RSSI is -50, while my other wireless N router (dual band) is -35 and is in the exact same location. I'm using the 5ghz radio only, and it is set to N, and I'm using channels 44 and 48. I checked the hidden advanced wireless page and transmit power is already set to high.
My laptop has an Intel 6300 wireless card.I'm using the current firmware 1.0.02. I've noticed that the speed of the router randomly seems to drop off too (just as I type this, the link rate has gone back up to 450mbps... typical). Is the router throttling when it gets hot or something? So I just want to find out if others are experiencing similar rates at the same kind of distance. Seriously, how can you advertise something as 450mbps when you can't even get that link rate at a distance as short as 6ft?
I can't see any thing I can do to increase the link speed (back down to 270mbps now), short of a firmware update to increase the power and use higher channels. I hear the higher channels are much better, so who do I have to write to, to plead for new firmware?This is a great product, but it's totally ruined by stupid internal antennas and a weak transmit power. Maybe if we make a noise about the not so maximum performance, they might address it.
I have an E1000 router in my office with a cat5 cable going to my daughters bedroon thru several doors and around some corners. She (recently moved back in) has an E1000 router also.I need to know how to use both routers to increase the wireless signal in her bedroom.I have not tried anything yet.The router in my office is configured with an address of 192.168.2.1.
I just moved into a 4200 sq ft home that was built in 1900. I have a Linksys e2000 and I have it upstairs and it only covers the upstairs. I get one bar signal downstairs. I was wondering if I should buy a wireless repeater (if so which one) or upgrade to a better Linksys router (e4200).
I have DSL set up in a home network. I want it to be used in my barn. The signal won't reach wireless though. I have 2 older wireless routers not being used - Lynksys wrt54gx4. Can I add two of these in the path to the barn to extend the signal? I would put one in the back of the house and one halfway to the barn in the pool house. ZCan these routers connect wirelessly to the home network?
I have a WRT310N router. I called the connection "Monica". Well... Monica doesn´t appear in my web and connection center. It simply doesn't exist any more, as if it was off, but it is on, all the lights are on. I checked de internet supply and it works. I don't know what to do..
How far should the signal of the E4200 stretch? I am noticing some serious issues with signal strength on the far side of my house. I was under the impression that the E4200 was able to stretch much further distances than most N routers. Is there a setting i can adjust to increase the range?
I am trying to use my EA4200 wireless as simply a router to run my home network. I want to leave all my cables plugged into it and distribute the internet via the switch to my other computers. I just want to turn of the wireless feature.
I just bought and set up an E2500 wireless router this evening. Using the default settings (as applied by the Cisco setup CD), I was experiencing pitiful range, with signal dropping to 2 out of 4 bars just one room (about 20 feet away). (Previously, using the exact same physical setup with the same computer and a single-band Belkin n150 router, I always had 4 out of 4 bars in that room).
I entered an online live tech chat, and after some back and forth, the tech rep had me change the settings as follows: (1) Rename the SSID to separate the two bands: One network SSID for the 5GHz band, another for the 2.4GHz. (2) Turn off auto-channel for both networks: Set 5GHz to stay on channel 36. Set 2.4GHz to stay on channel 1. (3) The 5GHz is set to use 20/40 MHz width, while the 2.4GHz is set to use only 20MHz width, but I believe those were the defaults already in place.
Then he promptly ended the chat, so we didn't get to finish. Nonetheless, with these settings in place, I am now getting a steady, uninterrupted 4 bars in the next room, using the 5GHz network SSID. Because we were disconnected, I have a few questions remaining:
(1) Is it normal to get such terrible range using the default settings (that's make for a lot of unhappy customers and a lot of extra calls to tech support)? Or does this indicate a problem with my router? (This was a Cisco certified refurbished model) (2) Which change 'fixed' the problem: Was it separating the two bands into different SSIDs, or locking the channels rather than using Auto channel? (3) Was this just intended as a test to troubleshoot the problem, or am I supposed to leave the router configured this way? (Since we were disconnected, I didn't get to follow up with the tech rep after changing the settings.) With it configured this way, I'm connecting devices that can find the 5GHz network to the 5GHz network's SSID, and the other devices that can't find it, I'm connecting to the separate SSID for the 2.4GHz network. Seems unnecessarily messy to have 2 SSIDs.
I have a wrt54gx2 with srx 200 technology recently purchased. I havetwo cabled computers attached. One at one end of the house attached tothe router by ehternet cable, the other attached about 100 ft by ethernet cable.The wireless does not reach to the other end of the house, most likley because that part of the house is an addition with masonary walls and a large masonary firplace. I bought a wap54g access point at the recommendation from someone at linksys to attach to the end of the ethernet run. Since my set up is macintosh, I can't use the wizard disk that came with the wap54g. Linksys support was not support( not expected), I need to know what to do to get this up and running. I am new to this stuff and Linksys get the wireless router with ethernet installed and up and running with my dsl. I thought the same for the wap54g.
Got a new e1000 after a RMA. The new unit has a very weak wifi signal. I've tried all different channels. It is running in mixed mode. No microwave, blue-tooth or other noise. 4 feet from the router and the signal is down to -90db. Take a few more steps away and the connection is lost.
Just bought an E1500 wireless router -- when setting the router name and password, a 2nd guest sight came up, but I had to leave the computer, and when I came back that page was not there. I do have a guess password, that is fine---what I want to remove is the guest signal to our Dish Network wireless sight.
In first setup, error meaasge " we could not find your router :setup could not find your router's wireless signal ..." i checked cable and internet signal. i find one problem : the light of internet port of router is not blinking.i reset my router but problem is not solved.
How to successfully increas the signal range of the WRT310n? I live in a huge old place and the signal drops to one bar (dial-up speed) about 40 feet across the building. However, at the room before that (maybe 30 feet) my Apple Mac book gets great signal and it's no problem. I need to connect the Mac and 2 PC laptops wirelessly.I'm not sure whether to try a signal booster, set up another access point (or how to do that anyway), or what? Running a cable is unfortunately not an option.I also have a WRT300n (which was replaced this weekend with the 310n). Not sure which one really is better, but the 300n router's range didn't even make it as far as the 310n does. (There was weak signal, no active bars.) Someone suggested adding a more powerful antenna to that router instead?
Bought the new EA4500 a couple of days ago and have looked at my wireless connection and see it varies from 72Mbps to 144Mbps. It has jumped up to 270Mbps a few times, but rarely. Shouldn't it be 300Mbps most of the time? My laptop is 4 feet away from the router and the router is on top of a card board box being elevated away from interference. The prior router was a dlink 855 that went whacky after 3 years. I believe I was usually at 270 Mbps with that. What gives? Do I have a faulty router? With this new router, I expected the range to be a lot farther and faster too, but it is not in my family room. 2nd floor router, family room is 1st floor about 50 feet away and I get 1Mbps - 5Mbps. Everything is set to Auto on router and IP6 is disabled on laptop.
I have Att internet services and the modem I received from them has WiFi with it. The signal that it produces is very weak. I was curious if there is any way to use my E3000 to boost or repeat the signal so WiFi will extend through out the house.
