Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt120n Can't Find Connection To It
Aug 21, 2011
I can hardwire to my modem and get internet but when I try using the router it can't find it. Everything was fine yesterady with router. What I noticed is when I plug the router in to reset it before plugging any ethernet cables in the port 1&4 lights were blinking like there was activity
I have a problem with current (1.0.06) firmware on WRT120N. Few hours after restart DHCP server stops assigning IP addresses. Another restart resolves problem, but only for next few hours.Computers and other devices "see" my wireless network and they are able to connect to it, but the process stops at requesting IP number.There was no such effect with original firmware (although there was another problem with 2200BG), so I want to downgrade.where can I find previous versions of WRT120N firmware?
I have several computers and printers connected to a WRT120N router which is connected to 10mpbs DSL. The computers are all running WIN7 and are hardwired to the router. On the one PC, it keeps losing network connection. I've tried upgrading the router's firmware, reset, etc. to no avail.
I think it may be related to the same IP address being assigned to multiple machines connected to the router. Is there a way to set specific IP addresses to each item connected to the router to see?
I recently purchased the WRT-120N router for my home network. The wireless is set to mixed mode, with WPA Personal encryption, with key renewal set at the default 3600 seconds. My problem is that the connection is not stable. I can be connected with one computer, then, as soon as another computer joins the network, I get kicked off. This happens with all of my 5 computers. In addition to this, several of my computers will not automatically connect to my network after the computer is restarted. When I try to reconect manually, it says the network is unavailable. The only way I can get back on is if I go into "Control PanelManage Wireless Networks" and delete the setting for my network, then connect again through the "Connect to a network" window.4 of my computers are running Windows Vista with a minimum of Service Pack 1. The Other is running XP with Service Pack 2.
I'm capped out at 12 mbps service through Mediacom. My PC is directly wired to the WRT120N. I consistently test in the 11 mbps range.
I have a very unusual issue though.
I can connect my iphone and Xbox wirelessly through my router with no issues on their side. However, any time I do so, it kills my wired connection on my PC. I'm not doing huge downloads or P2P or anything like that. In fact, the speed drops immediately on my PC the moment I connect my phone to the wireless network regardless of what i'm doing on the phone (checking email or loading a webpage).
The hardwired connections are fine, but at random the Printer, laptop and wireless Xbox connections will drop out and i'll have to reboot the router to get it working again. I've tried everything I know of (i.e., Static IP, Port Forwarding) as well as a factory reset, but I continue to have this issue.
I have a Linksys WRT120N wireless router that I have had for almost three years now. It recently has started dropping all internet connections very randomly, sometime multiple times in an hour. I will lose my connection to the internet and connection locally to other laptops then it will reconnect. It is also disconnecting when wired as well as I have a playstation using a wired connection out of the router and it loses connection all the time as well. What is causing this, I am pretty sure it is the router and not my internet service.
I have a WRT120N router .It has something to do with turning on or re-introducing certain wireless devices into the area. When I come home with my iPhone & my wife is on her computer, suddenly the wifi stops. And vice-versa. It's ridiculous. I'm not a computer programmer but if I was I'm pretty sure this would be a no-brainer to fix. Especially if the company that paid me took pride in their products.
I’ve bought a router, and a wireless antenna for my laptop, since I have a high-speed internet outlet in the living room, but I use my laptop in the kitchen (I don’t have any other pc). So I’ve configured my Linksys WRT120N router in the living room, unplugged the ethernet cable from my laptop, plugged the wireless antenna in the kitchen, and everything was working fine with the wireless network. After about one month I was not able anymore to enter my network with the security key, there was actually no prompt for the security key, just a message “Cannot connect to the network”. I then had to reconfigure the router, going to the router IP address (I used the default settings, a blank for username, and “admin” as a password, as per instructions), use another network name, security key and password, and was able to start again a wireless network with the wireless antenna as before. This problem represented other 3 times (in the last 3 months), and was working fine, but now I cannot reconfigure the router anymore, since the IP address doesn’t accept BLANK/ADMIN anymore, and if I go ahead and reconfigure the router a message says I have to use the default settings in the IP address…
my router drops connection several times a day. I have to unplug the router every day so that my devices can stay connected. I hate when this happens late at night when i'am upstairs and have to go 2 stairs down to get internet on my devices. For example if i want to connect my iPhone to my Wireless network it gives me an error with: 'No connection can be astablished with this network'.
I often loose internet connection recently while online. I always check my status on 192.168.1.1 when this happen to see if i'm getting 0's ISP but it does not say that.I also tried ipconfig/release and renew I also tried right click wireless icon and click "repair"Power cycle always worked for me in the past but today to my dissappointment it did not.after power cycling I check my status on 192.168.1.1 and now it indicates 0's.
I have an internet connection of the speed of 384 kbps, settings are default i changed nothing. firmware is updated. i'm using wireless connection.any settings you will recommend like in MTU, Beacon Interval, RTS and fragmentation?
I have a disconnecting problem with my WRT120N (Linksys) wireless router. Sometimes all wireless devices lose the connection to the internet, and the access to the router administration page (192.168.1.1) becomes impossible. In this case LEDs of power, internet and wireless are lighting without flashing. This problem usually occurs every 48 hour, and there was no way to make a reconnection except turning the router off by unplugging the power wire and plug it again…
I hope find a solution for this problem here
Other question: are there any problems in Firmware Version: v1.0.04
My wireless router will work for 6- 8hrs then drop the internet connection. I have to cycle the modem and router several times to restore the connection. I am also using a Netgear Access Point.
I am using: Charter High Speed Internet Motorola Modem Cisco Model WRT120N Router SETTINGS Mode- Mixed Channel Width- Auto 20MHz or 40MHz Security- WPA2 Personal SSID Broadcast- Disabled Firmware Version v1.0.04 Connection Type- Auto Conf DHCP Beacon Interval - 50 Fragmentation Threshold 2304 RTS Threshold 2304
All other setting are at factory default.When I unplug the modem from the router and plug it into the desk top I have internet service.
I recently upgraded my Linksys wrt120n router firmware & had to reconfigure settings. Subsequently, some (but not all) of my apple devices are having intermittent wireless connection problems. Specifically, my ipad1 & ipad2 never lose their connection but a mac book pro (~ 2 years old), iPhone 3g, iPhone 4, older iPod touch & very old i book g4 all work for a period of time (usually 1/2 day) & then lose their connection. When I attempt to reconnect these devices I receive the following error..."unable to join the network xxxxxx....". I also have a Dell laptop (1 1/2 yrs old) that generally does not have the connection problem. Finally, when the devices do lose their network connection all I have to do to reconnect is go to the Linkys router setup webpage & click on save & the wireless connection works again (almost like this is just refreshing the connection for these specific apple devices). I was not having any problem prior to the firmware upgrade & from what I have read the older firmware version is no longer available so going back to the old firmware does not appear to be an option.
Router config and i just follow the instructions anyway i just bought this router cuz the old one failed and it was installed ok with internet connection and everything but when i open a program like bittorrent azureus the internet connection dies, it happens on my laptop and mac they both seem ok but when i open that program internet connection disappears
Reciently I bought a WRT120N Router to get a better internet connection and to have more capacity to connect different wireless devices, because the modem from my internet provider company is extremely restrictive.
I use an iMac, a Notebook with Windows 7 and a Netbook with Ubuntu 11.04, besides different devices (iPhone, iPod, PS3, Kindle). Although when I configured the router I connected every devices simultaneasly, with better signal quality than before, after using it for a couple of days I found that it disconnects itself, I can't access internet, and my only solution it's to switch it off and on.
After an upgrade of the WRT120N to firmware Ver.1.0.06 (Build 01) every device I have tried to use WPA authentication with will authenticate / associate with the device then drop the connection just prior to recieving a DHCP address.I have tried a Dell latitude laptop with the broadcom chipset, an iPhone 3GS as well as an motorola with google pad device and all experience the same problems.I have removed all mac address filtering, and re-enabled the essid broadcasting only to have the same problem persist despite stripping everything down to just WPA.
I'm running Windows 7 64bit and I have sucessfully configured my wireless print server (Linksys WPSM54G) to work with my computer and our HP DesignJet 500ps. I have been able to print several sets of drawings without issue, however if the plotter is inactive for an extended period of time (1 hour +/-) the wireless print server loses connection with our router. At the same time the print server loses connection, an associate in our office with a wireless connection to his computer also loses connection to the router. A simple power cycle of the router and print server restores the wireless connection
I chatted with Linksys online tech support and they confirmed that I had the most recent firmware in both the router and print server and had me reconfigure some of the wireless settings on the router. All was good until about an hour ago when I tried to plot and discovered that the print server had lost it's connection to the router and my associate had also lost his wireless connection.
What's the deal here? I feel as though the root cause of this issue is related to the wireless router rather than the print server as my associate was periodically losing connectivity to the wireless router before installing the print server.
I have an Option wireless router that powers have of my house and i connected a WRT54G for the other end of the house, but the problem is that the Option router needs a password to access the internet for the first time, so when I try to do the quick setup on the WRT54G it can't find the internet to finish
can't find my internet connection anymore. I have the wrt110. when I click the little computer in the corner on my computer to see where I'm connected my connection isn't there and I have to log onto someone elses unsecured network
I have a Cisco WRT120N Router and a Cisco Valet AM10 wireless adapter. Almost every time the computer reboots, I loose my network and I have to redo the AM10 setup. The AM10 is the only device that loses the connection, my lap top and printer do not lose the connection.
Problem 2: Everytime I upplug and replug the AM10 a window pops up saying I need to check the drive for errors but none are found.
Problem 3: I downloaded the AM10 install program, Downloadable.Setup.AM10.1.2.10148.2. It does not work. If I try to run it Iget an error message that the setup canot be completed and to call in for support.
Problem 4: When I can get it working is shows that it is Wireless Connection 5. Why 5 and not 1? Where are the other 4?
When it comes to configuring my new Linksys Cisco WRT120N router to my PPPoE connection. I've visited 192.168.1.1 but I'm not sure what to do next. So, I've got a PPPoE connection, static IP address, Linksys Cisco WRT120N router and a terrible ISP.
How to configure my new router so that I can start using the wireless for Internet access at home.
I bought a new Linksys WRT120N modem which is working great, but the wireless for some reason isn't working properly. My computer is able to sense the exsistence of the connection tho. I've tried using other computers to connect to it, and still the same problem, can sense but cannot connect.
I currently have a network using ipaddress 10.1.x.x and 10.2.x.x and 10.3.x.x with a subnet of 255.0.0.0 I purchased 2 of the wrt120n wireless routers for testing and find I can not use the subnet of 255.0.0.0.
I have a WRT120N and have been trying to set up priorities using the QoS under the tab Applications and Gaming. Everytime I "Save Settings" it does not save. It refreshes the page and deletes everything I just set up.
I did Live Chat and they told me it was my router. I returned it and got another one... Same problem
I'm using an Static IP adress and i'm using wrt120n router, but to connect the internet i have plugged the internet cable in the 1,2,3,4 (doesn't matter which one) slot. So now i'm just using the wirelss part of the router without "routering" if i can say so. When i put the internet cable in the Internet slot of the router, the laptop just cant connect to internet - it shows Unidentified network without Internet Access. I don't know what type of changes i have to make in the WEB interface of the router. I think i have to set the type of the connection - now is DHCP and may be to put my IP adress, DNS, Subnet mask in the router settings, but don't know how exactly. I've tried to set up the router with the CD-interface but same thing happened - Unidentified network when the cable is plugged in the Internet (yellow) port. How to set up the router to be a router, not just a wireless switch?
My roommate and I recently got a WRT120N to replace an older Linksys router that was exhibiting the same problems with less frequency. Indeed, the entire reason we got the new router was to fix these problems. Alas, they have become worse.Anyways, what's happening is that the router constantly resets itself. It does this every 20 minutes to an hour and doesn't seem to be related to how much traffic it's dealing with.It's not just the internet going down, it's the entire network, and not even just the wireless part. My computer has a wired connection to the router and, and I get told "A network cable has been unplugged" every time it happens. Then, if I look down at the router, I see no flashing lights, just the steady glow of the power light. It always fixes itself after 10-15 seconds, but it's very annoying. Certainly, playing games online or having a conversation on Skype is made more difficult.As previously mentioned, we replaced our older router because it was exhibiting the same behavior, but the new one does it with greater frequency. At the very least, the router does reset itself instead of needing us to cycle the power. The setup was slightly different with the old router: I was using a wireless connection with a WMP54Gv4 which I've had to disable since it bluescreens the moment it so much as sniffs a signal from the WRT120N?
Is there anyway to disable WPS on the WRT120N router?
All I can do is switch the "view" from WPS to manual configuration in the management console...this doesn't actually disable anything.Maybe I don't understand WPS security, but what's the point of using a 20 character WPA2 password if WPS has an 8 digit PIN that I can't change or disable?
I just bought a WRT120N to set up with my new Gateway Windows 7 64-bit using Cablevision cable internet. When I go through the steps from the CD to install, the wizard does not find the connection. When the internet is plugged directly into the computer, it works fine. If I have the router plugged in first and then run the install CD, it picks up the router as an existing router but I can't get it to install
I have a WRT120N router installed in my office.All PC and Laptops are connected to it via WiFi.there are about 3 PC and 4 Laptops.The WiFi keeps going Off now and then..and comes back on in a minitue or so.
