Linksys Wireless Router :: Couldn't Connect To EA4500 - Network Disappear From List?
Jun 24, 2012
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
I've recently bought a WRT54GL router, and I`m having some problems with it. The original firmware the router came with had a bug, and couldn`t even connect to a PPPOE network. I downloaded the latest firmware version for this model (4.30.14 build 5, Oct. 26, 2009). Now it can connect to PPPOE but the broadband speed is limited to ~ 30Mbits/s. My ISP normally provides a download speed up to 80-90MBits/s, and if I bypass the router, and connect the internet cable directly to my PC, it works.
The QoS is disabled, so this can`t be the problem, but I searched the internet, and I found that it can be because the router`s CPU is too slow and can`t handle connections up to 80-90Mbit/s download speed, but this sounds a little bit weird to me.Did any of you gus run into this problem? Is it a hardware problem, or a software one? Maybe there`s something I need to set up in the admin interface?
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 put two different e4200 routers in my network and both of them have the same issue. I believe there are some major firmware bugs with this router. First of all I set up everything using the web interface. My laptops could connect to the network and internet but any of my devices that use wireless bridges (WET610N) to connect could only get local network access. They could not connect to the internet. After some troubleshooting I found the reason it was not working properly. I used DHCP reservations in my network because of port forwarding and such. Well when the devices connected to the bridges were in the reservation list they were unable to connect to the internet. After I removed them they now are able to get on the internet without a problem. So that is the first problem I've found so far...
The second is I can no longer connect from my Xbox 360 to my Media Center PC. I tried to set up a new connection but this did not work either.
I bought the E3200 to replace an older Linksys model. The older model worked but the signal was weak throughout the house. I installed the e3200 using the Cisco connect software but it told me that it wasn't sure I was connected to the internet. I wasn't. Showed a strong signal but could not connect via wireless devices or from the cable from the router to the desktop.
I have LUS Fiber service which does not use a modem. I have had them recycle the signal several times and have done tried many different variations of the MAC numbers from ipconfig or from cloning. Have also tried it with the MAC cloning disabled so the router's MAC number is used. I have reset, rebooted and done just about every possible option.
Spoke with my provider many times and they insist they are sending me a signal. They also recognized the router's MAC number on their end.I purchased one router and it wouldn't connect, so I exchanged it. All these shenanigans I have gone through are with the second router because I figured the hardware isn't the problem.
So, I've had my Linksys E2000 Router for awhile now (not a year old though), and I just discovered a problem with it.Just the other night, not even 8 hours ago, I was playing my 360, everything was fine. I then decided to go to bed, cause it was getting late. Here I am now, I boot my 360 up, and notice that my 360 couldn't connect to Live. At first I thought maybe the cable got unplugged somehow; nope. So I troubleshooted to fiind out that Ethernet Port one no longer works on my router, but switching the cable to port two, my 360 is able to go online.
Does this mean my beloved router, that I paid my hard earned cash for, has decided to start crapping out on me, or is there a fix for this? I take really good care of all my electronics, and my router sits in a spot by itself on my desk with plenty of air space. I have had no issues with this router in the past, until' now. I've always trusted Cisco, and Linksys products, and this really dissapoints me that my router might just be kicking the bucket, at not even a year old. What's the deal Cisco?
I have a Sony Vaio laptop which has an Atheros AR9285 wireless network adapter. My router is LinkSys WRT54G. I have configured this router with an SSID and encrypted using WEP.I created a network using 192.168.1.1, saved the configuration and then exited out.This creates a network that Windows "sees" in the list of available networks. However, for reasons I cannot figure out when I shut off my Vaio (I thought it happened when I powered down my router) why my available network does not "see" the network I just created.Under "manage wireless networks" I can see my network, but on the list of available networks it is not there. I then reconfigure the router and the network shows up. I at first thought it was a router configuration problem, but it now appears to happen when I shut off the PC - almost like I am not saving my configuration somewhere
I got a wireless HP all-in-one PC and was able to connect to the Internet via the free Dlink wi-fi access point. Dlink no longer appears in the list of available networks. The network adapters are fine. I'm running Windows 7.
Just purchased a ea4500 router. Have setup multiple computers/devices already and works great. This computer (HP dv6000 running Win Vista home prem) however will not connect to the internet. It states that it is connected to the router (computer sees router), using the cloud connect app on my iphone i can see this computer, but will not allow access to the internet (local connection only). It works fine with the wired connection. When attempting to use the cloud connect software, it says it was unable to complete the install. Have attempted trying while connected by wire as well, same result. Have deleted the wireless connection and allowed software to find connection, still same result, cannot install. Wireless worked perfectly with previous router (WRT54G) three days ago.
I upgraded my router's firmware automatically. Then I wasn't able to connect to ciscoconnectcloud. I then thought It might be better to do the upgrade manually, so I downloaded the classic firmware, and rolled it back. I then downloaded the Smart Wifi firmware and the Smart Wifi setup software and did the manual upgrade. Now, I'm able to connect when I use the old 192.168.1.1 address, but not to ciscoconnectcloud.com, and even then I had to refresh a couple of times to get it to work.
I can think of from different cables, factory settings, etc. Can't connect to modem straight from computer for some reason, but my old linksys wrt54g still works. I can connect to the router wirelessly and access settings fine. When i try to use cisco connect, the install stops at 25%
I've been using my EA4500 since it's original launch date as a PPPoE router through another router/modem which is the Netgear DG834G V4 set to Modem Only mode which was working fine for a long time!A month ago, a friend wanted to borrow the Netgear Router and after he gave it back I reset it like I always do and entered my settings in router mode(i.e. username and password) to check if I havewe working Internet connection and that the router is working properly and it was working properly like it was before I lent it. Now comes the problem, if I keep using the Netgear router as the PPPoE handler and make the EA4500 work as "Automatic Configuration DHCP" it works flawlessly but if I set the Netgear router to modem mode and make the EA4500 handle the PPPoE connection, the report in the troubleshooting tab keeps on saying "Connecting" endlessly!
Note: I've replicatedthe settings that I used on both router before and after lending it to my friend so there's no difference in settings!
I have the linksys EA4500 now for a few hours and its pissing me off.with my old linksys i got a wireless connection to my Belkin Home Base.this is a usb wifi station.in this usb station there is a seneye. this is a machine to protect my reef tank.i cant make a wireless connection to my Belkin home base..
I have an Kasda router connected to my PC. I want to connect Wireless D-Link router to a Kasda router so I can have wireless internet on laptop and on my PC as it is now directly. But I can't seem to manage to get it work. I can catch the signal but it says "No Internet Access". Also I can't enter my wireless router when connected that way, only the normal one. I'm suspecting that I need to configure both routers somehow to get it working. I've tried some other things but no luck.
The first thing I done was this:
PC<->Router<->Wireless Router (Connected them on LAN ports)
Also I've tried:
Router<->Wireless Router(Connected LAN from router to an internet port on Wirless)<->PC(connected lan from wireless to PC). - This way I was able to acces both router from PC, but still couldn't connect to wireless on my laptop.
My EA4500 has the newest firmware and is properly configured to support 20+ wireless and wired devices. It does this job well.Guest Access, however, is a problem. It works for about a day, then stops.Guests can access the login screen and enter the password. Then nothing happens. The screen appears to "load", but it does not connect.I have tried returning to default settings and reconfiguring and reupdating firmware. I have tried turning Guest Access on and off, as well as resetting the password.The only that works is rebooting the router. This is obviously not practical, especially for a contract client.
More often than not, when my son wants to play on Xbox Live, the Xbox won't connect to Xbox Live. It will connect to the network and the internet but not Xbox Live. After running the connection test, the suggestion is to reboot the modem and router. It works after rebooting those two devices. Why does this happen so often?
I configured the EA4500 to work in bridge mode, to use it as an accespoint for an existing network (Linksys WRT610N). It gets an IP address (192.168.1.141), but does not offer a wireless network (the ethernet ports do offer network acces). When I try to access the configuration on IP address 192.168.1.141 I get the Linksys Smart Wifi page asking for the password. When I enter the password, a message "Waiting" appears and that's all. It keeps me waiting forever and I cannot access the configuration settings.I have tried to reset the router (30sec. reset button, power off 30sec, power on) but the result is the same.
I have several devices connected to my EA4500 (two wired computers, two wireless laptops, iPhone, iPad, and a network drive). i have not been able to connect any new devices wirelessly. New laptops, PS3, friends laptops. Error message would suggest that password is being entered incorrectly, but I change the password to very basic word (idiot proof) but no luck.
I have problem connecting my Oppo blu-ray player (BDP-95) to the CISCO EA4500 router.I had a buffalo router before and everything was fine.I bought the EA4500 a few months ago. All was fine when I set up the Wi-Fi connection to all my existing devices, including, notebook, iPad, iPhone, TV, etc. But the only exception is my Oppo blu-ray player. The oppo player can detect the SSID of EA4500, after entering the security password, it just shows "Connection Failed!"
However, my Oppo player can connect to other wireless access point (e.g. the wi-fi sharing from my Android Phone.)I have tested almost everything in the past few months....including, upgrade firmware, factory reset the router, turn off all the security setting in my router. But none of them works.Frankly speaking, I am quite familar with the setup of such wireless stuffs. ( I had almost 10 wireless at home and every device was setup without any problem)
Keep having trouble with login onto my router (EA4500)Every now and then it will work but more often than not when I try to access it using either myrouter.local or 192.168.1.1, I keep getting an unexpected error message in the middle of the screen and it will go no further. Or I get no error and just a blue background with no icons or anything.
I tried going back in the firmware to what it was when I bought the device which is non-cloud (Ver.22.214.171.124047), but when I did that, I was logging into the router perfectly but had no internet access at all even tho all the gateway and dns details were present on the status page for the internet.
I've put it back to the cloud firmware (Ver.126.96.36.199880) and i'm back to these login problems again so I tried as per request with a cisco advisor in live chat to totally reset the router using the reset button at the back. Oh that caused problems getting things back online as every time I tried to access the interface I got a 502 error. I managed to get back online using the cisco disc that came with the router but now I'm back to square 1 with these access problems to the router.
I just can't see what is wrong here, it was fine prior to it updating itself to the cloud software, but it has been problem galore ever since.I am running Ubuntu Linux and have tried both firefox and chrome browsers which doesn't seem to matter.I have tried my sons laptop running vista which gets the same problem.I have tried disconnecting everything else on my network apart from my PC (the linux one) which is ethernet cabled direct to the router.The cloud app for my HTC does work but has very limited settings and runs extremely slow.
Might be worth mentioning that this morning when I tried accessing from google chrome, in the error box also popped up the following message, 'error_get_networks', this is the first time I saw this message so don't know if its of any relevance. I do have set in the settings that my DHCP server starts at 192.168.1.201 and most of the computers in my house have a static IP address so I don't believe anything is clashing to cause any errors.
I just acquired a used E2100 from an auction, when I plug it in I see an "Unnamed Network" with full bars in wireless, but can't connect since I don't know the ssid/password.When connecting with cable, with ipconfig I get a 10.10.10.108 ip, the gateway is at 10.10.10.99. Yet I also cannot access it.I have tried the reset button at the bottom, holding it for over a minute, pressing it quickly, holding it for 30 seconds, holding it and unplugging + replugging the router, but nothing is working.I have also tried the CD that comes with it with cable and with wifi only, but it does not find the router. I have deleted my default wireless network settings, had my wifi on, was not connected to any networks, yet the CD could not find the router.When router is on, the WIFI led blinks around once a second, while the LAN led blinks randomly like it should.
I've got an E4200v1 running 1.0.04 firmware with guest access enabled. I'd like to find out who is logged in using the guest access. Is there a way to get a list of the DHCP clients on the guest network? I'm able to do this for the non-guest access via the WEB interface's Status->Local Network->DHCP Clients Table page. But I can't find a similar table for the guest network.
My EA4500 router now automatically goes to Cisco Connect Cloud, and I can no longer access my router directly through my browser. I do not want to use Cisco Connect Cloud, for security reasons, so how can I disable the automatic access to the cloud? Use of the Cisco Connect Cloud should be optional, and not mandatory. If the cloud is the only way I will be allowed to make changes in my router, I may just have to return it to the store. Can this "feature" be turned off?
There are plenty of instructions to configure USB storage but there are no instructions on how to use it, specifically. Ok, so I have my ftp address, user name and password and tried to connect with Filezilla on my local network. Unable to connect. Also, the USB device does not even show up in Network settings. However, I am able to see the device as a media server from Sony Playstation.
I put the ea4500 on Bridged mode, and now I cant connect!I know I have to put the new ip address, and when I do I choose direct conect, it ask me for a password, I put the password, I click to connect, and then it just sits there in waiting....
I recently purchased a EA4500 for my home network. After hours of searching, I couldn't find any evidence to how I can install a USB printer without the obvious Cisco Cloud Connect. I don't need any software or account to access my router over the net nor any of the features CCC provides (at least as of yet). I'm quite comfortable with using the web interface and easily managed to adjust the router for everything I need except the printer part. I certainly have things to print so I have to connect my printer to the router as it is clearly mentioned on its box that I can access my printer through it. As a last resort I tried to install the software on the CD that came with it to get a link for some "Cisco VUSB" software which I think is the solution but it keeps saying my modem is not connected to the net. It clearly isn't because I don't have an internet connection at home. What I have is a 3G connection which I use for communicating and downloads I need. So why do I need an internet connection on the router for anything and how do I install my printer?
In the settings menu, there is no l2tp in which it was possible to configure a local address of the router. It should be: 10.155.41.41There is an option only for VPN server setup(10.255.255.254), but where it takes a local address that my provder has gave me? - it is not clear. At the same time in the status of the router receives a DNS correctly and the second address embarass me little bet DNS should be:
1) 188.8.131.52 2) 80 252.130.254
first dns is correct, and second one looks like: 184.108.40.206Maybe he does not take a local setting of ip adress via DHCP?
I just installed my EA4500 router and it was amazingly simple. My only question is it shows two wireless connections available: The secured one I set up and the another network with the same name that says "guest" and is NOT secured. Is there a way to either disable the unsecured guest network or to secure the guest network?
I recently purchased a Linksys EA4500 Dual-Band N900 Router with Gigabit and USB. Everything set up great with no problems and after a day or 2 I managed to get all home devices connected (2 laptops, 2 printers, an iphone, 1 tv, 1 blu-ray, an old desktop, and a tablet). Everything was connected right and working and I installed the Linksys app on my iPhone which let me see what devices were connected and all that. Well, last night, an unknown device showed up as a connected device. It's labeled as: android_(insert string of characters) and has a MAC address. I've tried and tried to identify what this device is and I can't. Everything else on our network is still showing up independently of that device. I'm worried that someone using our connection and possibly putting our device security at risk. What can I do to A) try to identify what the device is and B) if it is an intruder, block it's access.
just bought the EA4500 new, setup the router with computer plug-in RJ45, after I change my network network to "LinksysOne", I can connect to the network wireless. But when I connect it with hard wire/RJ45, it shows "cisco27205", but I cannot see "cisco27205" with wifi, neither with RJ45 connection cannot see "LinksysOne". Why this happen? is this normal?
