Linksys Wireless Router :: Why WRT54g Only Showing 1st LED Port In List
Dec 18, 2012
Why is my WRT54g router only showing the 1st LED port is lit, and not the rest when I have changed or added a device to the 2nd,3rd,4th port? It is also stopping my ability to stream,view youtube etc. When I disconnect the router from my cable provided modem, everything works fine?
I have an EA4500 and am using Cisco Connect Cloud software. Its working mostly fine except that I have one device on the network that will not show up in the device list. This is not an issue in itself and normally I would ignore (although it used to show up when I forst got the router) however..
The device is a WDTVLive media unit and required access to windows shares on a media server. Now the WDTVLive device is server an ip address by the router and is available from everywhere on my network but every couple of days it loses the capacity to search windows shares.
I know what you are thinking and I initially thought the same, this is an issue with the WDTVLive box. However one day I spent a few hours trying to resolve (Am an IT Consultant and know a little about networks) and found that I could not fix the issue. I then rebooted the router and it started working. I have since confirmed that every time it breaks I have to reboot the router.
I have purchased E2500 and i am having following problems:
1. DHCP client list not showing - only shows when i reboot the router. After some time, the list never shows even when i press refresh button 2. I can only reserve IP when i reboot the router - after some time i cannot do this action also
I have upgraded to latest firmware and also peformed reset as directed by support.
I'm trying to forward my ports and I've been following a guide from [URL]. It's simple, but it's not working for me. I couldn't find my router on their list, so I'm assuming the worst and that it's not supported for the Port Forwarding. I just went with the normal WRT54G without the version 8 and tried it that way, I didn't get anything out of that either. It keeps telling me that the port isn't open and I can't receive the information packets that they're sending me.
I'm trying to set up my WRT54G wireless router so.i can port forward the relevant ports for my programs. I understand that you have to set up a static ip address before you can do a port forward which makes sense as you do not want to keep changing the ip address for the forwarding settings every time your network refreshes. But I cant seem to have it set up. And is there a rule that the static ip that you set should not be within the dhcp range?After setting up the static ip and setting up the port forward settings how do I test if the port is being forwarded correctly?
my WRT54G has been configured to block any and all incoming connections.continue to have disabled all port forwarding, port triggering, the DMZ, and QoS, via the applicable tabs under the [Applications & Gaming] Panel. The WRT54G continues to be configured to operate as a Gateway.No static routes are defined. The routing table show four entries, none of which are remarkable or match in anyway the partial address identified above.So I am under the impression that my WRT54G should be ignoring everything from the WAN-side.Even pinging the WAN-side of my router from the outside internet times out.My WRT54G ver 6 is at firmware level 1.02.8, which, as far as I can tell is the latest issued by Cisco.I am completely perplexed how such a connection is being established, and do not know if it is or has the potential of causing any harm. My own research indicates port 520 is typically used for RIP protocol, but I have almost zero knowledge of such.
I encounter a problem setting up port 80 forwarding on WRT54g router.
- Numericable modem
- WRT54G router : portforwarding configured, accepting anonymous internet traffic, no DMZ, no port-triggering... in fact everything is fine except for ports 80/443
- Linux Ubuntu server + Apache2 listening *:80 and/or *:15001
1/ Situation 1: Apache listening on server's *:15001
-> Accessing from Internet (outside LAN) works very fine.
-> Portforwarding of router:15001 to server:15001 (TCP) works fine.
2/ Situation 2: Apache listening on server *:80
-> Accessing from Internet (outside LAN) FAILS.
-> Portforwarding of router:80 to server:80 (TCP) doesn't work. Diagnostic using the client machine's firewall tool showed the request doesn't get any return... no traffic back at all.
The system being fully operational when using port:15001 shows the problem does not come from server configuration.I still have to try a bypass of my router by plugging the modem directly on the server eth card.
-> If that works it would definitely prove the problem comes from the router, precisely the portforwarding feature as applied to port:80.
My guess is the following:
- As WRT54g router's remote administration interface is precisely set to listen 80/443 ports.
- As I still did not disable remote administration as I need it, but I will come to such extremities (very soon in fact as despair is gaining me
- Looks like WRT54g is unable to forward port 80 as this is it's remote administration port. You can set it up, but it just won't work, and there's no warning
- Disable remote administration? (will it work ? cause I would not risk to disable it for nothing...)
- Have remote administration litening on different ports than 80/443?
- Is my diagnostic correct ? (at least, does it seems to be...)
- (shall I get another device? Update to alternative firmware project?)
PS : I could be asked for ifconfig/netstats/hdw-fmw version, I would post later as I do not have access now.Looks like to me it is recurrent issue on WRT54g (maybe I'm wrong and just an **bleep** in LAN/WAN configuration which is highly possible)
i have a 54G wireless home router ..... successfully port fowarded an application from a CPU (server).... but after no connection made from the user to the server..... it suddenly close the application ..... so what i did is to reboot the router in order to refresh the connection ...... Is there any other ways to fix this sudden close of the ports ?
When I'm home I can get online but it's slow webstar. I used to be able to get online at the local McDonalds with free wi-fi, real fast. Now, the connection list doesn't show the "FREE McDonalds" connection.
I have: Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter, Windows 7 on ACER Aspire 7741z-4815. It has been updating until recently, don't know if it's because I haven't been online as often or what.
I have problems with my D-Link DIR 635 router. It shows up fine in list of networks on my girlfriends Mac and on my new laptop, but on my older laptop it doesnt show up at all (whereas a lot of other networks do). Seeing as my current laptop is being repaired at the moment, I need to be able to connect to the net with my old laptop too.
I run Windows XP Professional on my laptop, which is a Compaq Presario f700. why the network doesnt show up?
I just started having this problem yesterday. I was experiencing weird downloading/internet browsing issues and couldn't figure out what the problem was. I started looking around my router settings and noticed that in my DHCP Client list, my computer isn't in it. The router is hooked up to the computer, so it's not wireless. My phone and my girlfriend's laptop are listed, but the main computer isn't. It's especially causing problems with port forwarding. Downloads will stop because the port isn't showing as open. I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 and a Belkin N+ Wireless Router, model F5D8235-4.Firmware is up to date.
I just got a DIR-655 and set it all up pretty easily. I have 6 wired and 3 wireless. All work fine and all are set to use DHCP. But if I go (in the router) to the Lan Computers list under Device Info, three devices (2 wired, 1 wireless) do not appear. I do have a switch added to the system, but of the three devices connected to it, 1 shows in th Lan Computers list and the other 2 do not.Since everything works, I'm mostly just curious why this is. Every previous router I've had showed everything correctly.
I have a Wireless N router model F5D8236-4 v2 (01) with firmware 2.00.04 (Nov 12 2008 10:51:08) and it's not showing all issued wireless or Wired IP addresses in DHCP Client List.
They all have IP addresses and connect to the internet through the router, but in the router administration page, they're not listing. The Windows devices all show but most of the Mac devices are not, nor is my XBox 360.
My reason for investigating this is because the router seems to keep losing the Mac devices and a router reboot fixes it, but it shouldn't have this problem because all the Windows devices just seem to work.
According to the support page I have the latest available (dated November 12, 2008 which really seems kinda old to me for a Wireless N router). Are there any plans for a new firmware offering for this modem or have you already deprecated it as "legacy equipment"?
I am having difficulty following the logic of the port-translation. Here is the configuration on a 5505 with 8.3,So I would have thought the outside access-list should reference the 'mapped' port but even with 3398 open I cannot remote desktop to the host. If I open 3389 then I can connect successfully.
I don't know how many of you read the article List of tested USB storage devices for the Linksys E4200 before buying it. Basically, what it says, is that you cannot connect your "too old" or "too new" (>2TB) HDD to this router and you have to settle with an WD MyBook Mirror Edition 2TB or Seagate FreeAgent Desk 2TB at best. Needless to say that this not good enough. First I believed that the list is incomplete and if a brand is listed with a model then a bigger or a smaller one will work as well. Sadly this is not the case: neither WD Passport with 320 GB (FAT32) nor a LACIE 1TB (NTFS) could be connected to E4200.
If any of you succeeded to pair the router with a different external HDD than the ones from the.
P.S.: I strongly believe that Cisco should work on an updated firmware which should expand the list of supported HDDs.
Port forwarding on my linksys is not seem to be working from outside the network. It works fine if I try on the same network. External ip address: 69.117.132.xxx Ports from 8080 through 8080 forwarded Internal ip address: 192.168.1.150 - static ip address assigned to the webserver. I understand 80 could be blocked by the ISP. Can 8080 also be the same case?
I am currently accessing the internet on my home lan with a Linksys wrt54g dd-wrt in bridged client mode (small town wifi to T1 network) with a static IP, but plan to add an additional WildBlue 12mbps satellite connection. What I’d like to do is load share between the two connections with a RV042 dual wan router…. The satellite modem connection to one of the WAN ports and configuring the RV042 as my DHCP server is not a problem, but how I should configure my wrt54g to the dual wan router for load sharing?I suspect a IT professional might understand this intuitively, but I am unsure how to pass through my public address from the Linksys to the RV042 WAN port.
I'm looking for an updated list of tested and compatible external HDDs that the 4200V2 will support f(media streaming). Any updated list?Clarify that the following references to "WD 1.5 & 2 TD" translate to WD My Book Essential Edition 1.5 & 2 TB as opposed to the WD Elements HDDs? There has to be a better list than the one in FAQs.
I have an EA6500 and have three AppleTV... all three generations.l I also have a DirecTV Genie and DirecTV HD-DVR that, together, provide whole-house viewing. When I first setup the EA6400 based network, all three AppleTVs were listed and my whole-house viewing worked. This past Saturday, however, that changed, when I couldn't see the programs recorded on the HD-DVR, from the Genie. My troubleshooting determined one of the AppleTVs had been assigned the same address as the HD-DVR upstairs and that the HD-DVR wasn't listed as being connected. Once I reset everything, the IPs resolved and the whole-house viewing was resolved, however, none of the AppleTVs are listed as connected, even though they are. I can check the connections by the AppleTV device and see that they do, indeed, have an IP address, and I can view material from the iTunes cloud or stored on another PC in the local network. I reset everything again, but to no avail. No AppleTV devies show as connected from Smart Wi-Fi. The AppeTVs are all wired to the LAN... not wireless.
So, the question is, is there a fix to get AppleTV devices to list? All of my devices and router have the lastest firmware. BTW, I had a WRT610N, which I'm now useing as an access point, didn't have this issue.
I picked up an E1200 and set it up successfully. I am using wireless MAC filtering, and decided to pull up the list of connected wireless clients (Wireless >> Wireless MAC Filter >> push "Wireless Client List" button).Immediately after this the Web UI of the E1200 becomes inaccessible. It still routes traffic, and the router remains pingable, but it will not allow access to the Web UI for several minutes. The error that appears upon attempt to access the Web UI during this time window is similar to the above, but reads "Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection."
I have tried this in Google Chrome, Firefox 4, and MSIE on two separate computers. Each browser displays the error a bit differently (MSIE, for example, just says it can't display the page and gives no further detail) but the net results are always the same. I have tried resetting the device to factory defaults in addition to re-downloading the firmware from the Cisco/Linksys website and installing it. No improvement.
I have also noted that the Log (Administration >> Log; and yes, I have it enabled) doesn't appear to be picking up anything at all. In fact, the Security log, which supposedly (according to the Help) "displays the login information for the Router’s browser-based utility," is also blank.
I am having a setup problem with the RE1000. When I plug it in, my laptop is able to see it, and I'm able to access it and attempt to set it up. However, once I tell it how to connect to my main wireless router, and it attempts to log onto my wireless network, the RE1000 disappears from my list of networks. My blu-ray player also cannot see it.
I could get a list of clients on the E3200 wireless (or wired) ports. I have my E3200 setup as a WAP LAN-LAN off a switch and it is not the DHCP server on the network. I can see a list of MACs on the client list, but no client names and no IP addresses. They are definitely named and show up on the WRT54GL (DHCP and NAT) as devices
I have a few desktops in my home network with a new E4200 router. Have to add my wifes Lenovo notebook to the net and activated MAC filtering as addition to the WPA2.Set her MAC address in the filter list. Only one MAC is allowed to access WLAN.An hour later I see in the Filter list four (4) different and unknown MAC adresses added to the list.
I have the WRT160N router for 3.5 yrs and it's worked perfectly since installing it. About two weeks ago it began intermittently dropping cable connection. First few times I thought I could resolve it by unplugging/plugging router & modem so they can "re-syn" to the cable connection. That still works but now it occurs sometimes multiple times within a few minutes/hours and then won't happen again for an entire day/days. The other day I had connectivity but instead of the usual 5 bars I only had 3 while using my laptop in the same spot in the house as usual.
I'm trying to limit my kids' access to the internet during the night, since I caught them plugging their laptops and the Xbox into the router's Ethernet ports late at night so they could circumvent the wireless guest access. The problem is, I only have 5 available control slots and the list of devices I browse to choose from is vague at best. Half of the devices listed in parental controls say "Network Device" and the other half say "iPhone" or "iPad". Isn't there an easy way to choose the correct devices to restrict, like by IP or MAC address? And if not, why is this so confusing and difficult? I have a family of 10 in my house and everyone is connecting with their own phn or 3 iPads, 2 laptops, 2 desktop PCs, 1 Xbox and 1 PS3.I tried limiting the DHCP Reservation list, but that seems to only affect the wireless access, not the 4 ethernet port connections.
Since a couple of weeks I have a linksys EA6500. When I go to the device list to see which devices are online the device list is not displayig the correct data. I see devices online that are offline and also devices are offline that are at the moment online. When I try to delete a device that is offline in the list I get error 2315. I have that error in the local and cloud interface. The list has a frozen state from a particular moment.
When I reboot the router then all devices in the list have status offline and the device list stays that way. Nothing gets online anymore or will be added. When I reset the router to factory default all keeps working without problems for approximately 24 hours and after that the problem occurs again. The list freezes again and you are not able to delete a device.
I searched the forums but no one has this problem. I only can find a post that describes my problem but for them a reset worked. In my case a factory reset works also but the problem keeps coming back.
I have the Linksys EA6500 with the latest firmware and have a question regarding the device list connection status.Currently, I am seeing devices in the list that have a connection status of live, but they are not even within my home network. What is the update/cycle time for the device list actually checking connection status of a device?In my situation, it has been 3 days (72 hours) since the two device showing as connected have not been connected to my home network/router. Noticed that this inaccurate connection status for these devices is also contributing to the Device Monitr app not showing correct device connection status info.
Would like to have real-time device connection status if possible. This device list is great way to know when device get connected or disconnected which let me know when my kids get home from school or using game console when should be doing homework.
I am trying to forward a port so i can connect to my computer because i want to stream a radio station from computer to my phone.I'm trying to forward port 88 on my Linksys WRT54G Version 6.I tried that but Boardwave audio streaming server still says it's not open!Here are some pictures: I'm using Windows XP Professional 32-Bit
I've recently purchased a Linksys EA4500 router. I've got home, I've used the installation guide CD thingy, connected 3 of my laptops wirelessly, no issue there.However when I tried to connect my 4th laptop problems came along. The problem I was dealing with was that I couldn't connect to the router. I mean I could see the network name appearing in the list, but when I tried to connect the network would just dissapear from the list, not connect, and wouldn't back on the list unless I've reset the laptop. Anyhow I've ignored that computer because I thought it was two years old and it might have had a wireless network adaptor issue, although it was conneting with no problem to my former router D-Link DIR 365.Anyway, just yesterday I've purchesed a brand new netbook (Evolio U9) and it doesn't see my router, although it sees all the other connection availables (my neighbors' wirless networks), I even connected to one of them just to test if anything was wrong with the netbook.
I also have problems when trying to connect with an Iphone 4. Well, it does connect, but the connection to the iphone just goes on and off making it impossible to use. It's really strange that all the 3 Iphones in my home have no issue connecting, not even my Glaxy S3, nor any of the Smart Tvs, nor the printer.Does the router have any number of limited connections available? The router configuration is the ones done from the CD. I've only assign a SSID and a WPA password.Please note that all the computers above are GENIUNE Windows
