well, i just bought an E4200 and, by the way, was very hard to configurate. But the real problem is: if there is a power loss, both modem and e4200 lights up, but no internet connection is provided.Even the SSID desappear. I trried to disconnected everything, reconnect by parts, but no success.I wired connect the E4200 to my iMac and the router was ok, configurated.Then, i reconnect to the modem and all worked ok.Now im testing possibilities and is i reboot the router, the net desappear and i have to try possibilities till it works.
My older router connected automatically, without a problem, but i decide to buy "the best" brand and its top product". Now im disappointed.. Twice i realize that if the connections drops out, i have to disconnect and reconnect the internet cable from my E4200...
I'm loosing about 40GB of data. If worst comes to worst i might go with another brand of router instead as i don't wanna waste a lot of money again as i currently feel i have with the E4200. Enough whining, here is my problem. The FTP and Media Server feature works nicely. I have a 2TB USB 2.0 HDD attached to the router's USB port. I use it for images and my music collection ripped there so i can play it all from my PS3 and TV. I also have many GB of video recordings and converted DVD discs for easier access. (And no, before anyone speaks of piracy, it IS legal, at least in my country, to back up your legit media) Now, everything worked fine, until one day after a few weeks, the router hanged for some reason so i decided to reboot it. To my disappointment it also wiped video and audio from my HDD which really got me pissed as i lost all track of what i had on the HDD. The Media Server was also having connection issues once in a while so i decided to update the firmware from 1.0.00 to 1.0.03. It immediately fixed the connection issues of the Media Server. Another noticeable change is that files transferred via FTP will show immediately via the Media Server without the need to update the database via the router as i needed to do in 1.0.00. Now today there was a power loss in the neighbourhood so the router went dead along with the HDD. To my big disappointment, everything was gone from the HDD when i started it up again. Images, music, video and even my application backups etc. It was just plain empty except for the root folders. I have done a few tests and figured that even if the HDD stays on, cutting the power to the router will wipe the connected HDD. What's up with that? Even a silly Windows PC wont nuke your files that much if an accessed HDD was disconnected while in use. Do i really need a UPS system for the router and safely disconnect the HDD from the router via the user interface every day? If so, the concept of having a router with these nice features is really useless and money theft in my opinion.
I have installed my new E4200 and it works beautifully. I have several wirelss adapters and a few wired connections through powerline adapters. I also have a second VPN router attached to the 4200.I can see the wireless connected devices with the associated IP addresses. If I plug a laptop directly into the Cisco, I can of course see it.However, I can see none of the devices attatched to the powerline devices? I have a securty cam connected via the powerline and want to know the IP address. I checked with cisco technical support via chat and they said it is impossible. I have used 2 previous routers with the same configuration and can see all devices.
My GPS was simply triangulating my location and then comparing that location to mapping information stored in my device to give me my next turn, among other information. From the referenced article, it appears that this device is doing a lot more than that, namely it is compiling information about my location and even my speed, sending it to the GPS manufacturer where that information is being compiled and sold.
I have a D-link Gigabit wireless router which works great but 1 particular wireless device of mine functions/works faster when i have a 100mbps Ethernet connection to it. Is it possible to slow down the wireless speed to a particular device?
Ideally i want my router to continue functioning as normal but i can't afford to have a 20m Cat5 cable running from my router through my hallway and into the living area. I want to slow the connection down to 100mbs for this one device.
My WRT610n went out today for no apparent reason.All of my other peripherals are still running, but the router won't turn on. I've tried different transformers, outlets and powerstrips, with no luck -- no power. I've also tried a hard reset on it, with no luck.
I'm using an E2500 and the Power LED started blinking this week.From the manual, this means “Flashes slowly during bootup, during firmware upgrades, and druing a Wi-Fi-Protected Setup Connection.” We have a wireless printer (wireless disabled), and a Kindle that does use wireless. All other computers are hard wired. I have not started a Wi-Fi protected setup. The router has been in use since the third week in October, and is more or less OK even though the Power LED is flashing. How do I get the Power LED to stop flashing?
I just bought this Linksys E3000 high performance router and all it does is have the LED Power light flashing constantly. I've tried resetting it and leaving it unplugged for a few hours but nothing works. When I try to use the installation software it gets to 25% then says it couldn't find any network
I'm having a problem with my WRT54G wireless broadband router. The power light is blinking and I can no longer access the internet. What should I do. I can't seem to understand the self-help on your site.
I have a Linksys Wireless Router, model WRT54G. I read in the user manual that it is best to turn off the router when not in use for better security measures, but there in no power button on the router. So does this mean that the power cord would have to be unplugged from the electrical outlet each time to turn the router off? This is kind of inconvenient, especially where my cord is plugged in. Also would unplugging it from the outlet each time, would this mess up the settings on the router? Is it really necessary to turn it off?
Ive recently tried to update the firmware and everything went as instructed, then the power and LAN light went out. Now I have the indicator lights for the computer and modem, but thats is. No internet or SSID broadcast. I cannot log into or ping the unit, and have tried the hard reset many times, with no effect.
I have a problem with a LinkSys WRT610N router (v1).
I have just bought it used. The problems: I see the power led blinking all the time. I can't connect to 192.168.1.1. I do not notice any effect on the leds when pressing the reset button (I feel a soft click when I do that, but none of the leds seem to realize). The manual states that the led should stop blinking after the "self-diagnostics" ends.
My configuration is DSL connection (by AT&T, phone cable), a Siemens 4100 modem, an ethernet cable into the LinkSys router, then an ethernet cable into a Linux PC. Everything is wired. I see the green light of the LAN connection to my PC, the world blue icon and the USB icon stable on, a shy orange led on in the middle (wireless?) and the power blue led blinking. The PC is configured with DHCP, and I can access both the modem (192.168.0.1) and the internet. The gateway address is the one of the modem (again 192.168.0.1). In summary, the ethernet of the router seems to work, but the router is completely transparent, inaccessible, unconfigurable, apparently unresponsive. Trying to connect to 192.168.1.1 (the supposed default address of the web interface of the router, which is different from the 192.168.0.1 of the modem) I get a timeout error, and I can't ping that address. The modem is configured to handle the PPPoE connection, which I am not sure what it means but the text description suggests in this mode I should be able to access the router, provided that its address is not conflicting with the modem's. If I disconnect the modem from the router, DHCP does not get any address. If I force one, 192.168.1.1 still does not respond to pings.
So Is it normal not to notice any reaction when hitting the reset button? is the object just broken, except that the ethernet subsystem still works?
I have a new E4200v2 that I got from Amazon a few months ago and I haven't had any problems with it while it's up and running. My problem comes when the power to it is some how interrupted. When this happens, I can not connect to the internet. I can get to the router pages and the modem pages. I even changed out the the modem recently and the router still has the same problem.
I tried saving a working configuration file and restoring it after a fail, but that doesn't work. When I do a factory restore, I still can't connect until I use the stupid Cisco disk. In order to get back online I have to do a factory restore, use the Cisco setup disk, then reset my settings. All without removing power. My old router a WRT54GS v5 never had this problem. I need a router that works without having to set it up every time the power goes out.
I have a Linksys WRT54G2 v1 router which is having a daily problem of connectiing to the Internet on my home wireless LAN. My temporary solution is to disconnect the power from the router for about 15 seconds and plug it back in .... and all is well.... at least for another day or so.The real problem is that instead of properly connecting to IPv4 address 192.168.1.100 ..... it randomly connects to Autoconfiguration IPv4 address 169.254.29.54 When this problem occurs the SSID list shows both my 192 connection as well as a public network with no Internet connection?
I've used this router for several years without a problem until I recently bought a new Canon wireless MG5320 printer which initially had problems connecting to my LAN. After a telco with tech support the printer works fine but now I am now experiencing the Autoconfig address problem.My LAN consist of the WRT54G router, a Motorola cable modem, a Lenovo laptop running Win7 64bit, a Hp desktop running Win7 64bit and the Canon wireless printer. (all connected wirelessly)
I'm looking into upgrading our 4400 series controller to 5508's. Currently we have a few sites that have 8-9 4404 100AP controllers and I'm looking to condense these down to either 3 5508-500 or 5 5508-250 depending on cost. I'm wondering what a good port to AP ratio is for controllers with licenses that can handle over 100 AP's. I know the general rule of thumb is 25 AP's per port, but that seems to me to be 4400 way of thinking. I'm trying to also reduce the controllers overall footprint, i.e. ports on the uplink switch, power consumption, rack space etc.
My Wireless-G WRT54G router has a blinking power light and the startup software says "Unable to connect to the Router! Check that the Router has been connected to the computer, and that your Ethernet adapter is working." I tried uploading the firmware but I can't get to the router page to update. Is there a known problem or solution here or am I just going to have to find the router page?
I have a 500 GB HD connected to the router to the usb port and It bothers me that whenever electricity fails in our city and it comes back I can still navigate and access my files on the LAN from the hard drive, but I lose the connection to the router management either by my smart phone application or by accesing trought my laptop. The only way I have figured out to solve this is connecting the drive directly to my laptop and erasing the configuration files created by the router when you set the shared folders, etc. then plugging again and setting all shared folders etc.
So I recently upgraded from a WRT54GS to a WRT160N v2, all was well and good for about 3 days. Then I would lose my internet connection every 5 minutes or so, it would fix itself by the time I could open up command prompt and start pinging to pin point the problem. I decided I would update the firmware to see if that would fix the issue. Since doing that the power light has been blinking non stop. I've tried restoring it to factory defaults by holding the reset button for 30seconds, turning it off for 2 minutes and back on. That little blue light just keeps flashing. I can't even access the router setting page using 192.168.1.1. My OS is Windows xp x64 sp2, and I have DSL.
My router was working fine until today. I figured it out when I tried to get on the internet and it wouldn't let me. I hooked up the ethernet directly from my modem to my computer and then my internet worked fine.
I have many of these, many models and versions. I have a WRT54G v1, V1.1, V2....V8, I also have WRT54GS's WRT54GL's and others, Lots of other Linksys stuff, almost all of it in the Blue and Black boxes of varing sizes.I have a heck of a time when I reconfigure my network or the wife changes the furniture. I'd love a single document that lists the power specifications and adapter requirements for thens devices... I can't find them any where on the Linksys site. I Have looked and searched and nowhere can I find a consolidate list.
Any have a list of the DC power Specifications, Barrel sizes, and other stuff needed to buy a replacement Power adapter. This page url...lists a lot of information but does not list this critical information... I am amazed that Linksys does not have it listed some where here. Losing a wall wart should not be a reason to pull you hair out, just a simple purchase, If they don't want to stock them, then at least tell us what they are.
I have a cisco E3000 with firmware version 1.0.04. I enabled the Local Management Access with HTTPS. If I connect to the HTTPS management interface, I can see that the date of validation of the HTTPS certificate is valid.If I disconnect completly my router (disconnect the power supply), it seems that the HTTPS certificate is regenerated for the boot. The problem is that it is regenerated with a validation date from 01/01/1970 to 01/01/1971. I guess that the certificate is generated before the router is able to automatically set its own time.
I was upgrading the firmware of the WRT54G router when the notebook´ screen closed and it went to standby mode. It was sttoped the upgrade process.Now only the ports and Internet LEDs light up, but the power LED is off.I also cannot connect to the navigator for show the administrator´s window. What is the procedure to recover the operation of the router in a situation like this?
This is about to cause me to buy another router. This will be the 4th clean install that I have had to do. If my power, or my internet goes down, a regular proper reboot / or reset, will not get my ea2700 back online. It takes uninstalling & deletion of the stored Application Data files.
