Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 As A Local Dns Server?

Apr 24, 2012

i'm trying to find out whether my e4200 has the possibility to be a local DNS server and if so, how I can configure it. As it is right out of the box, i cant ping any of my local machines on DNS.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs / Setup Local DNS Server To Manage Small Office Local-only Domain Names?

Apr 22, 2012

i'm trying to setup a local DNS server to manage small office local-only domain names for our servers. i have the DNS working properly (resolving local machines and using the ISP dns if it can't). so i put the DNS server ip into the "Static DNS 1" field of the router settings. the other 2 static dns fields are empty.the problem is that the router is still using the ISP dns server as the primary and my local dns server as the secondary. i verify this in two places. first, if i go to the "status" tab, DNS 1 shows the ISP server while DNS 2 shows my local DNS server. secondly, if i connect to the wireless device with a linux-based machine, the /etc/resolv.conf file shows the nameserver ips in the same incorrect order.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Setting Up E4200 As Local Network

Jun 5, 2012

I've been playing around with my E4200 but cannot find the right combination of settings. My problem: I bought the router for cable internet that never happened. In the meantime I am accessing the web using a 3G dongle. Hoewever, while connected to the router (wired or wireless), all the PC's in my home refuses to access the 3G internet - it is as if it wants to use the E4200 to access the net, no matter what. So every time I want to access the internet, I have to disconnect the PC from the home network, and connect with the 3G on that particulat PC. (I have three PC's at home, 1 wired and two wireless). If I set the E4200 to bridge mode, I struggle to find a logical IP address, since I would ideally like to run the network at 192.168.1.X. How do I set the E4200 to allow a home network to be established without having to disconnect everytime I use the 3G on a PC? Also, it seems that if the router doesn't handle the DHCP duties, win7 by default makes the network public, which complicates sharing a lot...

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Local Area Connection Doesn't Have A Valid IP Configuration

Feb 14, 2012

I am setting up a new E4200 modem, and have not been able to use the wired connection. The Windows 7 diagnositic on all three computers tells me "Local Area Connection, doesn't have a valid IP configuration."Model: E4200v1..I am using a new E4200 router, along with a new SE1500 5-port switch and a new SE2800 8-port switch.I am using a wired network that consists of two desktop computers, a laptop computer, a network printer, three Direct TV recorders, two Roku streaming video players, a BluRay player, and an XBox gaming console.Here is what I have done so far.

1- I can bypass the router to establish a direct wired connection to the cable modem. This works to access the internet. It establishes a new wired connection called Network 2.
2- I can access the internet using the wireless connection to the router. It shows a valid IPv4 address.
3- With all cables in place, all the lights are flashing on the router and on the computers.
4- I had changed cables and swapped cable ends.
5- Using the wireless connection, I can access the router home page ( It shows valid IP addresses.

The problem is that my old Linksys BEFSR81 stopped working, with the same eror message for the LAN connection, "Local Area Connection, doesn't have a valid IP configuration."How often does the WAN port go bad? On both a five-year old BEFSR81, and a brand new E4200?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Print Server?

The printer does not have ethernet or wireless.  I will be upgrading the printer later but would like for it to work with all my computers at the moment.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Can't See Anything On Server After Connecting

Aug 23, 2011

I've been messing around with this for several weeks to no avail.  I've never had a problem establishing a VPN connection within my LAN.  I've tried several workarounds, learning things in the processs, but to no avail.I've set up a VPN connection with Windows 7.  The RRAS server is at home and I'm attempting to access from school (or the internet anywhere).I have no problem establishing the VPN connection (that I can see).  Port 1723 is forwarded for both UDP and TCP to a static LAN address ( in the E4200.  PPTP pass-through is enabled (as well as the other two options).I can't see anything on the server after connecting.  I'm using a DDNS.  It works just fine INSIDE the LAN; I've even mapped a network drive to "S:".  Accessing ANYTHING outside of the LAN over a VPN, however, isn't working.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 1.0.03 DHCP Server Buggy?

Dec 4, 2011

The e4200 1.0.03 DHCP server appears to be quite buggy.  After configuring a static IP / reservation for a client which already had a dynamic IP from the pool, the e4200 continued to offer this client its pool IP. However, the DHCP client listing in the e4200 showed the client having the static IP even though it was still being offered that pool address.This may sound like user error, but I can assure you, it is not. I have had a very frustrating experience with this product, and rather than fool with tech support again, I ran `tcpdump -e -s1600 -n -vvvv -i eth0 port bootpc or port bootps` to absolutely rule out a mistake on my part, bug in the DHCP client, etc. I found that the client was always offered that old IP, even thought the e4200 status display showed the "new" static one, after doing a DHCPDISCOVER without requesting a specific IP. This condition persists across e4200 reboots even after having the client release its lease!I finally was able to resolve this by forcing the client to request the static IP from the e4200.This is unquestionably a bug in the DHCP server, and additionally, the user interface does not show the real state of the underlying DHCP leases held by clients which have static addresses / reservations. Troubleshooting this condition is well beyond the abilities of the average user.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 As NTP Server For All Computer On Network?

Jul 8, 2011

My old dLink DIR-655 router could serve as an NTP server for all the computers on my network. It would get the time from the dLink NTP time source and allow me to sync all the systems on my home network off the DIR-655.
I had to replace it with this new E4200 but don't see an option for it to act as a time source for my internal network.
Can this router be used for this function?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Get E4200 To Not Provide Itself As DNS Server To DHCP Clients?

Dec 27, 2012

Is there a way to get the E4200 to NOT provide itself as a dns server to the DHCP clients? I have the unit set up to provide two dns servers to the clients, but the 4200 always provides itself as a third and it uses my cable providers dns servers. I am using a dns based filtering service to prevent certain material from being accessed within my network as the first two resolvers. So long as both or one of the provided servers is working it doesn't fall back to the unfiltered third, but I would prefer to remove it entirely.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Remote Web Access To Server Is Blocked

Dec 11, 2011

I'm setting up WHS 2011 for the first time.  When attempting to set up Remote Web Access, WHS continues to recoginze my E4200 model information and router IP address but delivers the message 'Remote Web Access to Your Server is Blocked'.  Cisco and MS say the router is compatible with WHS and that it should set up through the wizard but no luck following many attempts, including manual set up of DHCP Reservation and Single Port Forwarding on ports 80/443 (not sure I did this correctly).
I've taken the router back to default settings with the exception of enabling Remote Management under the Remote Management Access section of the Administration menu tab; tried again with the same result.  What settings to change to make this work?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Static IP Lease From DHCP Server?

Jul 8, 2011

I just bought an e4200.  I was using a LinkSys WRT54GS running DD-WRT alternative firmware.
One feature that I really liked in DD-WRT was the ability to assign static IP leases from the DHCP server.  I liked having all of my devices running with a predictable, known IP address on my network.  I have a Home Theater PC, and various controller applications that run on iPhones, etc. - some pretty homebrewed.  Configuring the firewalls, etc. was much easier with IP address based controls.
Is there a way to achieve the same within the e4200's stock firmware?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Isn’t Communicating To The NPS / Radius Server

Attempting to configure Linksys e4200 router in WPA2 Enterprise mode. Got this setup fine when using the Linksys WRVS4400N (That is until it died on me, RIP circa 2 months ago).

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Media Server Ignores Folder Hierarchy?

Jan 5, 2012

I have a 1TB drive attached to my E4200 that contains several videos sorted in a folder hierarchy, like this (these are just examples):
TV Shows
01. Episode 1.mp4

As you can see, all of my videos are in a carefully constructed heirarchy.  This works with my old media server (Rivet for Mac).  On the E4200, however, all of these MP4 files are merged together.  My Xbox shows folders like "Albums" and "By Date", but these don't really mean anything -- all of my videos are jumbled into these folders and there's no way I can find anything.
Here's how the media server is configured:
If I can't find a solution, than the media server feature of this router is absolutely useless to me.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 V2 - Can Parental Controls Work With DHCP Server

Mar 5, 2012

On my new E4200v2, after I tried to move beyond the disappointment of Cisco removing Internet Access Policy entirely, I decided to give the stripped down Parental Controls a try.
Sadly, I didn't have any luck doing what I needed to do... block my Tivo's from accessing Youtube.
I enabled Parental Controls, Added the Target Devices (my Tivo's did show up), and added "" as blocked site #1.  Saved.  Entered the parental password when prompted.  Even rebooted the router.
But Youtube wasn't blocked.  So I added to the target list a non-Tivo device (a Macbook) for a reality check, and rebooted the router again... still no luck.  Youtube still not blocked.
So then I started to wonder if their Parental Control depends somehow on the local DHCP server & Client list.  Because my E4200 has DHCP Server = OFF (I have always used a Windows Server for DHCP).
I tried to call Linksys support to get this working, but after 45 mins, including escalation to senior engineer, they really were pretty useless (no real familiariarity with my problem) then they disconnected my call!

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Media Server - Certain Files Cannot Properly Parse

Jul 18, 2011

I decided to play around a little more with the media server feature... I've succeeded in getting SOMETHING consistent out of the 1.0.02 firmware. It's not 100% useful.
Here's what I did - whether it's pertinent, who knows:
1) I made the Media Server "Name" completely unique. My router's name was "Penguin" and that seemed to proliferate throughout the settings on the router everywhere (SMB server name, FTP, Media Server, etc.). I decided to just call the media server "Server." I then checked the option to DISABLE the server, and saved settings.
2) With the Media Server OFF, browse to the share on the USB drive, and completely delete the T wonky folder.
3) On the Media Server page of the router config, add your media sources.
4) Enable the Media Server, save, and you'll then see the T wonky folder come back, and if you go into that folder, you'll see some files being "built."
I tested a few videos and some music with the XBMC media player on my Mac book and a Windows 7 PC. I was able to add music and video sources on my small selection of test music and videos. I was also able to play them. MP3 tags and embedded artwork showed up properly, and the streaming over wireless was very good.
Now... Here's the kicker. This was just a VERY small sample of my entire collection. I had about 5 albums in MP3 format on the drive, and about 10 movies that I personally converted to MP4 with Handbrake (ripped each movie to about 1.4gb). When I threw my entire 90gb music collection on the drive and told it to scan (it, being the router Media Server page), it seemed to populate the albums up to a certain point, and then crashed. I saw the data files in the T wonky folder getting larger for about 5 minutes, then it stopped growing. At that same time, XBMC wasn't able to see any music or videos. Even after turning off the media server, then re-enabling it, I wasn't able to see anything. If I deleted the T wonky folder, and went back to a smaller subset of my collection, it once again worked "reliably."
So, one of several things is happening here.

1) There are certain files the media server cannot properly parse, and it's crashing the services that run it.
2) Something is corrupting the media database files which then prevents it from showing up.
3) There's a maximum number of files or file size that your collection can be.
If only there was a syslog we could get to on the stock firmware...  Linksys.
