Generally we have three people on the wifi at once, being online research, socializing (skype, ect.), and gaming. I want the best for everyone, and Ive had a Netgear router and still do, but its like wearing out. Its off and on functioning. I havent had a linksys so I have no base for those. We have windows8 and windows7 and an apple iPad on at once, generally. Im not sure if these routers are windows8 compatible..
I´ve recently purchased a Netgear r6300 and a wifi ac bridge (Linksys wumc710) When hooking up my Readynas Pro to the r6300 via the wumc710 I only get transfer rates at max 8MB/s. That´s not very impressive, and even with the bridge located within 10 feet of the router, no walls in between. What am I doing wrong? I´ve set the MTU on the Readynas and the r6300 to 1500.When doing a wired test between the r6300 and the Readynas Pro I can copy a file from the Nas to desktop at approx 80-100MB/s, but with wireless ac via the wumc710 only at 4-8MB/s.
I recently upgraded my wireless router to a Netgear R6300 and have had no problem with the wireless speeds,35mbps down and 6mbps up according to speedtest.net. I experience similar speeds from my direct wired connection as well but I am having an issue with my speeds running through my Linksys PLE300 powerline adapter I am getting speeds of 4mbps down and 6mbps up. My PC is running Vista Home Premium SP2 (I know). Prior to the upgrade I was using a Netgear N600 and I was getting much faster speeds through the powerline. My NIC is a Intel 82566DC -2gigabit. I checked all the cables, I am using a CAT6 from router to Powerline and when I run router stats it shows WAN as 1000M/full and LAN1 (powerline) as 100M/Full.
I have been using a cable modem gateway - Netgear CGD24G from Charter for two years. I just bought Netgear R6300 wifi rounter in order to upgrade the speed and range for my internet. My goal is to upgrade 802.11g to 802.11ac. Is there any special way to setup it up? Or do I need to contact Charter to replace a new gateway?
I have 3 computers wired to a Netgear R6300. Two of those computers (both running XP SP 3) I added new LAN Gigabit Cards (Tenda TEL9901G) . One recognized the card right away and had no issue connecting to the Internet (using this computer now). The other shows a 1.0 Gbps connection but I can not get any web pages to come up. I can access other computers and devices on the network without an issue on the computer that doesn't connect to the Internet.
If I type in the web address it says "Server Not Found." If I type in the IP address it will come up with the name of the site in the address bar but it still says "Server Not Found." I've tried several times to unplug the router and modem (Motorola Surfboard) and restart everything but the problem was still there. Also, I tried other Ethernet cables and no change. The LAN card drivers are up to date but I don't think the card is the issue since I swapped the new cards (to see if the card was the problem) and it does show a 1.0 Gbps connection. Also, tried uninstall/reinstall, disable/enable the card many times.I didn't change any setting in the router after installing the cards.Here is the ipconfig output:
I have a Netgear R6300 Router and I bought 2 Netgear WN2500RP range extenders. My router is in my basement (not ideal I know but it's where everything is home run) and I have one extender on the main floor which works great, but want another extender on second floor or outside.
I suppose the bottom line is that I'm debating between the r6300 and the ASUS RT-N66U. know the Netgear recently got new firmware with beam forming that supposedly increases performance significantly. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find even any anecdotal stories of just how much of a performance gain it gave the router.
[code] Wireless transfer from HTPC to Windows Home Server peak at 8-9 MB/sec. Note that my WHS and my Winn7 Gaming rig are both on the same physical switch, but the same exact wireless file transfer from my HTPC to Windows 7 gaming rig hits consistent 35-40 MB/sec, 4x faster and which is what I expect. Wired transfer of same 4GB test file directly from gaming rig to WHS tops over 100MB/sec so it is not a problem with the WHS writing to disk or wiring. So the question is, what could possibly be bottle-necking my upload from HTPC only to the Home Server? I have tested a Netgear R6300 with the same results as the Asus router.
I would like to know how to setup QOS on the linksys EA6500 wireless router. I know about the media prioritization settings, however, thats not enough for me. I would like to setup upload and download speed limits for certain devices on my network, like, say 300kbps download for a certain device at all times.
provide me with the latest (or one) release of 1.1.27 firmware for the EA6500. I am deeply disappointed in the last firmware upgrade and due to security and sudden lack of certain, or let's say all, functionality in bridge mode I need to downgrade or wait for an upgrade where that's fixed, but most likely not soon, or ever. Where could I find the firmware downgrade.
I have an EA6500 which obviously has 4 Gigabit ethernet ports for my home network, but I need a DSL modem to get it working.What's the maximum speed current modems can supply from the Internet to my router, is there such a thing as a Gigabit capable DSL modem these days or am I dreaming ? Is it possible to even get Gigabit dowload speeds via DSL or would I have to go cable to achieve something like that ?My main concern is I don't want to buy a modem that will slow down or 'throttle' the capabilities of the new router I've just purchased or have I got the wrong idea ?
I would like to use the EA6500 in my network - but nor as primary router (or in fact routing at all). I would have thought, one could simply tell the device to use a particular gateway, but it does not seem to be easy. I have used many other home routers as combined switch/AP/USB-drive (latest a D-Link DIR-655), but the EA6500 seems very picky. The "easy" "Smart Wi-Fi" setup requires internet access through the WAN port - and that divides my home network, which then have two zones which cannot really "talk" to each other. Alternatively, I can reset the device and access it directly on the IP (initially 192.168.1.1). But then I can change only LAN and WLAN settings. Stuff like Guest Access, USB-devices etc. won't work. Do anybody have success with this device without using the WAN port and the DHCP server?
I have a new EA6500 and am failing at getting ftp to work. I have updated the firmware.My ftp folder is on a Seagate USB Go-Flex drive attached directly to the router via USB. I have set up shares which I can see and access via my computer which is attached to the router.FTP is configured to use port 21 and UTF-8.
I have a pair EA4500s that I am swapping out for a pair of EA6500s. One EA6500 is a router. The 2nd EA6500 is set as a bridge and us being used as an Access Point about 200ft and two floors above the main EA6500 router. The two units are connected via DECA (200MB Ethernet over DirecTV cable - an alternative for others with a cable provider is called MOCA). So, basically two EA6500s serving as two Access Points on opposite sides of the house and all wireless networks on different channels but all sharing the same SSID. Everything works GREAT except for one unusual issue.
The issue is with wired or wireless clients. If I try to use my PUBLIC address with port number to address a local client on the local network inside the NAT network the NAT redirection fails. In other words if I use 172.16.16.8 for a local web cam while inside my network from an iPhone or PC all works great. If I use the external public address, however, the connection times out. If I pop out the EA6500 doing the routing/NAt and swap it with the old EA4500 with basically the same config as the EA6500 everything works again. The EA6500 and the EA4500 are configured identical for the most part and with the EA4500 as the main router NAT redirection works great but with the EA6500 NAT redirection fails. I have the firewall setting to FILTER NAT REDIRECTION unchecked so that's not the problem.
Seems very odd.... and only seems to happen with the EA6500..... the work around is to use the local IP address when the client is on the inside and the public address when on the outside, but what a pain that is....
Any work around to enable reverse NAT or similar functionality on the EA6500? I recently upgraded from a Dlink that did support reverse NAT to my internal devices through a dynamic dns service. Now I have to know the IP address for all the devices.
i setup my new EA6500 with the ethernet cable from my cable modem plugged into the EA6500, but with my old E4200 still switched on, but disconnected, i seemed to have ended up with a ip address of 10.250.27.47, not the 192.168.1.1 i was expecting, which i had with the E4200, my question is, is 10.250.27.47 something i should expect with the EA6500, or do i need to do a factory reset on the EA6500 and start again with everything else switched off as a precaution ?
I bought a new CISCO EA6500. During, first setting up, error was occurred. And, I cannot do anything with this product. How can I setup this one?
Error code: 0x82BF0306 Error description: A JNAP call to the device failed for an unknown reason.

This issue seems to happen about once every week or so. I get the router settings all configured and I'm able to access it from Cloud Connect and from the APP on my smartphone. After about a week, it's no longer accessible from cloudconnect, I can access it from my smartphone, but it shows that there are no devices connected (when they are actually connected). The screen for cloudconnect will come up after I sign in, but it just has the circling dots in the center of the screen saying "waiting" and it will do this until I close out explorer. The only way I've found to resolve this is to reset the router and set everything from scratch.
I have a big problem with my Cisco EA6500 router. I have a domain that is pointing to my public IP address of the home network. I have various computers and applications that listen on different ports for various reasons on this network. Everything worked fine until a week or so ago when I had to restart the router. The reason was that while I did a routine change (add a Mac filter for wireless) the router stopped responding. After restarting it, I could not access the home computers through the domain name (public IP) while being inside the network. If I try from outside my LAN it works fine but when trying from within the LAN the hostname and IP are not reachable. Also, everything works from inside the LAN if I'm using LAN IPs.
I set up EA6500. All kinds of problems with anything on the 2.4 MHz band. My wireless desktop on the 5.0 MHz band was flawless. So I ran Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector (freeware). The router is transmitting two 2.4 MHz signals! One is the SSID I set up and named. The other one is identical in every way except that the BSSID is slightly different. It is a non-broadcasted SSID that shows up on every device as "Other Network." I was on the phone with Cisco Support tonite, and they were great as usual but had no answer. If you change the channel on the 2.4 MHz band, the shadow network also changes to the same channel (this blew the Tech's mind). We reset the router to factory settings and started over. They are calling me back tomorrow. This router has great features on paper, but so far, it has not delivered.
The only way I could get my EA6500 to work as auto DHCP to my Roadrunner Motorola SBV5220 Surfboard cable modem was to disable IPv6 support on the router. It appears that the EA6500 attempts to issue the DHCP request for address assignment from the modem using IPv6. I could see the status of "Connecting" for IPv6 in the Diagnosis Reports and it would hang. Once I disabled IPv6, the modem assigned an IPv4 address and everything worked fine. However, am I giving up any functionality by having to do this? I bought this router and the WUMC710 Universal Media Connector for the 5GHz connectivity for streaming and just wondered if I'm impacting UMC performance or any other functions of the router by having to disable IPv6.
I currently have my EA6500 behind verizon fios router. I have 5 static IP addresses assigned to FIOS router, however the machines I want to connect to are behing EA6500. It's a dual NAT scenario:
Public IP - FIOS Router - 192.168.1.0/24 network - EA6500 - 192.168.2.0/24 network
What I would like to do is for each public IP address, I would like to forward traffic to a particular host on 192.168.2.0 network. I can easily configure FIOS router for static NAT and assign one internal IP (from 192.168.1.0 range) for each public IP. However, I don't see a way to assign multiple IPs from 192.168.1.0 network to EA6500 internet interface.
I don't want to use EA6500 as a bridge as it will pretty much reduce my EA6500 to a very expensive GigE switch.
Is this possible? Or should I replace it with something more useful like a business router? This is for my home so I would like to avoid buying an expensive business router.
I just bought the EA6500 last week. Had to RMA it on Monday and got the new one today. The issue still persists. The power light is constantly blinking and my computer is unable to obtain an IP address from it. I contacted tech support and was unable to get the issue resolved so I had it exchanged believing it was defective. The new one does the same thing. When I connect my computer to it, the light on my Ethernet port stays a solid orange instead of green like it does for my usual router. The Cisco light is constantly blinking.
I have two USB drives connected to my EA6500. When I use the ip to connect to them everything works just fine, but I cant map the drives. If I access map drives, I cant do anything with the files. It looses connection all the time.
I've noticed that my pings on all my devices go up when I enable QOS.This even happens on the PC which has high priority.The ping times go up by an average of 6ms, so if I normally have a 14 ping to a host it will now be 21.I've tested this by turning media prioritization on and off and everytime its turned on this seems to happen, although sometimes it requires a router or pc reboot before the issue arrises.
I have it set up as Capri (2.4 GHz) and CapriHD (5 GHz). CapriHD was intended only for HD video traffic. My wife's iphone 4S can only use 2.4 GHz, and it suddenly quit connecting after 1-2 months of use. My iphone 5 can use either band and it can only connect on 5 GHz. This problem MIGHT correspond to the recent firmware upgrade? I was traveling a lot around that time so can't be sure that is a culprit.Really thought the problem was the hardware, so I replaced it with a new EA6500 and getting the same result.
Can the EA6500 be set up as an access point connected to a remote router which has a connection to the DSL modem?I want to replace one of my wireless access points with a faster wireless interface, but this will be connected via hard wire CAT-5 cable located away from my modem/router.
