Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT600N Standard Verizon Router Doesn't Have N Capability
Apr 6, 2012
The standard Verizon router doesn't have Wireless N capability, so I got the WRT600N (first floor) a while back and connected it to one of the ports on the Verizon router (basement). I have the wireless turned off on Verizon router. My problem is that anything connecting to the WRT600N has extremely intermittent connectivity.
Ok, so I reset the router but i still can't login to the setup using the factory password (admin/admin) (blank/admin) (admin/blank). Now I have an unencrypted network and no access to the setup... I even tried using the setup CD but it doesn't recognize the router.
I have a WRT600N dual band router and have only been able to connect to the 5Ghz when it's network mode was set to mixed. I also have a Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card. When setting the Network mode on my router to Wireless N-Only I am unable to connect to the network. I have been searching all over the internet for how to fix this, but none of the answers suit me. I have my network security set to WPA2 with an AES encryption, like people keep saying so I know that is not the problem. Others say that I need to set my wireless adapter to N-Only as well, but I have not been able to find anything in Google that shows me how this is done. The driver version for my adapter is 126.96.36.199 and is up to date according to Windows.
I have been using a Lenovo W510 laptop with an Intel wireless adapter (Intel(R) Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300 AGN). The download speed has been 15-18 mbps on my home network. I just bought a new Lenovo W520 with a Lenovo wireless adapter. The download speed is about 1 to 1.5 mbps. What changes should I make to the router settings so that it communicates properly with the Lenovo wireless adapter?
I have a Telus modem, that is hard wired to a siemens wireless router.The telus modem assigns addresses to the siemens router in 192.168.254.* address range.There are a lot of other siemens routers operating in my neighbourhood and I keep getting kicked off.So I want to connect my MacBook Pro wirlessly through the linksys WRT600N on the 5GHz band.I've disabled the 2.4Ghz band.
I'm having problems with the access restrictions feature on the WRT600N. I do have the latest firmware upgrade, which was released in 2008 I believe. Anyways whenever I totally block a PC from the internet either by MAC or by IP, it affects the internet on the rest of the house. Logins to sites do not work right. Logouts from do not work right. Different features of different sites will not work properly. There also will be a lag sometimes when entering the url for a new site. But as soon as I turn the access restriction off, everything goes immediately back to how it should be working.
I have a WRT600N router. I have one PC that is connected to the router via a wired connection. I also have an iPad (3rd generation) that is connected to the router via a wireless connection. On my PC, I went to speedtest.net and determined that I am receiving like 20MB downloads via the wired connection. However, my iPad only gets approximately less than 2 MB download speeds. I have tried reseting the router and I do have what I believe to be the latest firmware update (Firmware Version: 1.01.36 build 4). I also receive the slow download speeds when I try connecting the other wireless devices. I assume my problem has to do with some sort of configuration setting found in the router configuration page (http://192.168.1.1/). The router is only a few feet away from my iPad so the signal strength is strong. I just don't understand why I'm receiving such slow wireless download speeds.
I cannot upload files through http (e-mail attachments, send images to Facebook, send file to virustotal.com) with Linksys WRT600N router. When I remove connection cable from router and place directly in a computer, everything works just fine. I am using last firmware upgrade.
I fought my ISP (frontier) for weeks trying to get their 7500 DSL/modem/router configured in bridge and working into the WRT600N. Finally gave up and put a new Engenius EVR100 behind the 7500 bridge and it came up fine in 10 mins. Now I would like to use my old WRT600N downstairs as a second router and run it in the range of the Engenius DHCP, with DHCP turned off in the WRT600N.
My question is this ... Do I set the WRT600N as a static IP address and use an address in the range issued by the EVR100?And, if so, what would the sub-net mask, default gateway and DNS numbers be? Also would the router address itself (lets say I use 192.168.0.120 from the EVR100 range) be different then the static IP address?
My DSL Modem connected right now to Linksys Model: WRT600N (Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router) to give a wireless internet access in my house. I have TWO spare Linksys Wireless Router (WRT350N-Wireless-N Gigabit Router) and (WRT54G2-Wireless-G Broadband Router) that I need to use to expand my wireless network at home.
How can i connect the two routers to became an access point or range expander to existing router. It is possible the two spare routers became an access pt or expander? How can i configure that? Cable configuration?
When the Wrt600N came out, it was said that the "Reserved" button would be enabled by a future firmware upgrade to support WiFi Protected Setup. Surely in the three or so years this has come to pass.Does anyone have a link to information on using WPS with the WRT600n?
I am using a linksys wrt600N with easylink advisor version 1.6.0042. I am trying to install a video camera and the instruction manual says under "known issues": LinkSys routers have a factory default setting in the firewall menu called "filter anonymous internet requests". If you want to access your camera from the internet you have to uncheck this option."I see this option in the WRT600N manual, but it references a software choice that I don't have.I have gone to the website and downloaded the latest compatible software version, and I still don't have the choice to uncheck this option.
I have the latest flash installed. I am making use of all the options available to this router. USB drive set up as a file server, both radio bands have devices which attach. All wifi security is wpa2 with a complex key string. Also have pc’s attached to all lan ports. I also have all the wireless devices registered on the mac address filter for access set to enable/allow. I have a total of 9 mac address in the list. One lan device is on the DMZ. One address is reserved. Not sure what other details you need.Router is used for online gaming, video streaming, and typical internet browsing.
I connected EA6500 internet port to actiontec router provided by Verizon fios. I don't have any other way to connect as FIOS connection is coax to actiontec modem. I must take a drop from actiontec to internet port on EA6500.
With that said, I can't get EA6500 to work, it keeps saying no internet. The only way I can get it to work is when I set it to bridge mode. This makes my EA6500 a dumb switch/access point. I didn't spend $200 for a switch. I need to use advanced features offered by this router but I can't until this problem is fixed. I made sure I am running latest version of firmware (188.8.131.52856).
I have reset my fios router as well as ea6500 to factory defaults multiple times.
I am a avid fan of Linksys routers. But one feature which i feel isn't there on linksys is the ability to start downloads on the router and also peer to peer capability such as torrents. Asus routers have this and it works flawlessly love to have this feature on the Linksys routers. This is one and only request i ask for in firmware update
So, I bought an E4200 today. I don't know if it's v1 or 2. The box doesn't say v2, so I'm assuming it's v1.
I'm trying to set it up and I have the most recent version of the Mac OS operating system (10.8 Mountain Lion), so the setup CD is not compatible. I'm trying to do a manual set up and it seems that step 1 is to go to 192.168.1.1, which is the same IP that my FIOS router uses, so I go straight there instead of to the E4200.
Has anyone else been able to make this thing work with Mountain Lion and FIOS router?

I just switched to Roadrunner Lightening via Brighthouse Networks. There is no configuration capability in the Cable modem/ router / wireless - Ubee provided to make the Modem a bridge. You have to call Brighthouse to do that. They indicated that they only do that for supported routers and the EA 4500 is not one of them. I'm ready to call them to say I have one of the supported modems so "do it" and then find out what happens.
Meanwhile I have connected my EA4500 through their router and have a network in a network. I've noticed another more significant problem. The speeds through the EA 4500 drop to 90%. Is there something wrong with the router configuration that would cause this significant drop in speed? I'm afraid if the problem is the EA 4500.
I have a Linksys WRT120N wireless router. I am currently only using wired connections to the router. I recently bought a Nexus 7 tablet computer and would like to connect to the Internet wirelessly. How do I turn on the wirelss capability of my router securely?
I bought the Linksys E1200 for it's wireless N and the guest account. set up my new Linksys E1200 router to use for wireless N access rather that my Verizon Fios provided Actiontec (model M4124-WR Rev.C) which is only wireless G, and so that I can use the guest account. I have an ethernet cable running from one of the 4 ethernet ports on the E1200 to one of the 4 LAN ports on the Actiontec. I have the wireless turned off on the Actiontec, and have the E1200 set as 192.168.1.200.My wireless N signal seems to be working fine from the E1200, and I was able to turn on the guest account on the E1200 and "connect" to it on my iPhone 4, but then when I open Safari I can not connect to the internet.
I have a new Linksys E2100 that was working well with an old Verizon modem. Then recently that modem gave up the ghost and I was issued another one (Westel Model 6100G). I have no problems with internet connectivity when connecting directly from my harddrive to the Verizon modem. I am also not having trouble connecting to the Linksys routher as I am able to see my wireless connection with no problem. However, when I try to set up the connnection with the E2100 in the loop (yes, it's connected correctly) I no longer have internet access.I tried de-installing and re-installing the Linksys software (thinking maybe there was some new configuration that would be auto-detected with a new set-up), but this didn't work. I suspect that if the problem is with my Linksys router and not with my Verizon modem that there might be something that could be done to reconfigure something manually but I do not know enough about connections and wireless systems to trust myself not to mess something up.
I'm trying to configure my Linksys WRT54G2 router as my primary router and have my Actiontec just used for the my FIOS TV (eg VOD, widgets, guide). I've googled many HOWTO's on how to do this but I just cant get it working. So setup up will look like this in th end:
(DHCP Server) (Wireless) (Only TV) Internet >> WRT54G2 >>> Actiontec >>> PC/Laptops | FIOS TV -------------
how to set this up? I understand that the STB devices configured on my Actiontec routers is actually my TV receiver and currently configured with the following IP addresses:

At this point I'm assuming it's a Linksys issue since I know that my Verizon modem can connect me to the internet, so works properly. Is there some known incompatibility with this Linksys model and the Westell 6100G modem?
I tried connecting this on my own and it worked for hard wired Internet service but not for wireless service. Too many cables and boxes attached. I have a vz router, then some other box, and a battery back up.
I use Bit Torrent to trade Grateful Dead concert recordings (all legit trading). I have Verizon DSL, a Westell 6100G Modem and a Linksys WRT 160N V2 Router. The Modem is located at 192.168.1.1 and the Router at 192.168.2.1. In the router setup page I have properly forwarded and triggered my ports. However, when I visit my torrent site, it tells me that I am firewalled or "NAT". I used to have the Linksys WRT54G Router and it was configured to PPPoE and everything worked fine. One day I did a firmware upgrade on the router and it would no longer connect to the internet. I switched ti to Automatic Configuration - DHCP and it connected, but performance was slow and this NAT issue began. I eventually got the new router and I have the same problem. If I set it to PPPoE, put in he username and password, I lose my internet connection. If set to Automatic Config - DHCP it works, but, again, "NAT".
Verizon told me that this newer modem self configures itself as PPPoE and there is no need to set the router to PPPoE but I can't seem to get these ports forwarded or get around this NAT issue. It is causing a significant loss of performance and while torrenting I can not connect to others, meaning I can not share what I have downloaded (the torrent client won;t upload). I have been screwing with this for months and have spent endless hours on the phone with Verizon - Linksys says my router is out of warranty so they want $39.95/month for tech support.I have been working with the tech support team on my torrent website and they can't get it figured out either.
Okay, I know there has to be something I'm doing wrong because 3 months ago I set up the same modem & router to work. Being the idiot I am, I reset my router to change the password (dumb I know) and now the router can't pass the internet signal from the modem on! 1. I've set the modem to bride/bridge and unchecked the private LAN box.release/renewed IP2. Used the modem's MAC address in the router. . Made sure DHCP set to obtain automatically.4. Reset, restarted seperately multiple times.It looks like from the status page that the router is obtaining an IP but it won't connect to the internet
U just bought a new E4200 router to enjoy 5ghz band for the first time.I noticed the range at my house of the 5gh is smaller than 2.4 is that right?one of my pc is having trouble keep connected to the 5ghz signal or the router doenst respond to it, is there a way to improve that signal?
I recently installed some wireless IP cameras and when attempting to re-install a camera I went into the DHCP Client table to verify which IP a camera was using to set it up, but I could not...and still cannot see any of my cameras in the table even though I can access three of them directly through the IE web browser. I initially power cycled both the E4200 router and Motorola cable modem, and then later just the wireless router...but I still do not see the devices connected. I currently have 2.0.37 firmware even though I was told by Cisco support that there was a later version available, just before being informed that I do not have support available and could purchase it. I attempted to locate a newer version, but the online upgrade portion of the Cisco Connect software searched the net and then states that I have the latest version available. I also opened a Firefox browser to see if maybe my browser was causing issues, but the same limited table appears without all entries available. I even opened the Cisco Connect software on another laptop with the same limited results. Other than a factory reset, get me E4200 dual band wireless router to show all attached devices through the DHCP Client table as it previously did approximately two weeks ago?
I have a home network with a wired BEFSR41 that, for a variety of reasons, MUST be manually IP configured (DHCP off). All computers and other devices connected to it are manually IP configured. I desire to add a device that cannot be manually configured, and needs DHCP. I therefore need to daisy-chain two routers with the second one DHCP on (and manual IP connection to the main network). The new device needs two-way internet access, but doesn't care if it sees any other current network devices. I've tried several configurations, none seem to work.
