Throttling Specific Computers Access To Home Linksys WRT54GS Router?

Feb 1, 2013

I have a Linksys WRT54GS router that I have installed dd-wrt on.My household is overloaded with wireless devices, and living in a home of 6, speeds for everyone seem to slow down drastically later at night when everyone is simultaneously connected and streaming media -- whether it be Netflix, YouTube, etc.. My typical speed wired to the router with no other connections is around 25 mb/s down and 1-2 mb/s up.Obviously, it's going to slow to a crawl when we have an iPad, 3 iPod touches, an iPhone, a Wii (playing Netflix) and 4 PCs all connected simultaneously.What I need to do is give my personal computer priority and throttle all other devices. So that I myself will have decent speeds while hampering all of the other household connections. I rely on those speeds for my job and that should have priority over my brother watching music videos on YouTube.

D-Link DIR-601 :: Throttling Bandwidth For Specific Devices?

May 16, 2011

Bought a DIR-601 for my sister and her kids for their home.  Setup and works successfully.  Sis asked if there is a way to give her laptop bandwith priority over the kids devices.  As is, they are all sharing limited DSL bandwidth.  Reading the manual, I see the QOS feature for specific types of traffic, and other limiters and schedules to shut out certain MAC addresses entirely.  But wondering if this throttling feature exists in the router also.

Cisco Firewall :: Allowing Internet Access Only For Specific Computers On PIX 501?

Jan 8, 2012

I'm a college student working on a lab involving a Cisco PIX 501 Firewall.
My project involves 1 computer and a firewall. My goal is to use the firewall to allow access to the internet for that computer which uses a static IP and ONLY for that IP address. The firewall is connected to the internet.
I have the computer hooked up to the firewall with the serial and using hyper terminal to enter commands. I think I need to use access lists in order to deny traffic on those ports for those particular hosts. I can't figure out exactly how I need to set it up.
What I need to do is permit internet access for alone. Any other IP should not be able to access the internet.
I tried:
access-list 1 permit tcp host any eq 80
access-group 1 in interface inside
I cannot access the internet using the computer with The goal is to be able to access with that IP and no other.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS To Connect Xbox Live Using Home Network

Nov 29, 2007

I have a xbox 360 that I want to connect to xbox live with, using my home network. Every time I try to connect to xbox live the only part that fails is the connecting to xbox live part. This is how my network is set up. I have Cox Cable as my ISP, a Linksys WCG200 gateway(v2), and WRT54GS(v7). The cable wire is connected to the WCG200 gateway, then an Ethernet cable connects the gateway to the WRT54GS router, and finally an Ethernet cable connects the router to my xbox 360. I have contacted Cox, Linksys, and Microsoft about the situation and they all say the problem is the version of the router. Someone told me that I may just need to change the firmware, but I don't know how to do that.

Home Network :: ISP Bandwidth Throttling - How To Replace Modem

Sep 29, 2012

I think that my ISP is throttling my bandwidth at the modem . how access full available bandwidth.When the technician installed the fibre optic line and then the modem, he showed me an amazing 77MB/s (about 600Mbps) before the modem!!But after the technician left these were the test results after the router:


averages, after router, show: UP between 56/60Mbps & DN 45/75Mbps

2)Local Server Speed Test:

average: UP 45Mpbs & DN 170Mbps

A Japanese Internet savvy guy explained that NTT East throttles the available bandwidth at the building by specific apartment/modem settings related to individual contract bundles. I signed up for the top bundle: TV, Phone and Internet connections.This is my Hardware/ software setup:

OS: Win7,

Line specs:
Line type: IEC60874-14
Connector type: SC
Core across: 9 micrometers
Clad across: 125 micrometers
NTT East fibreoptic TV/Internet/Telephone bundle (100Mbps best effort) Hikari Next Family Type but 10Mbps is considered within parameters
Asahi ISP Internet contract

GE-PON (WAN+Coaxial TV antenna)
"SCM-GE-PON-<H>A GV-ONU D<1>" model

RT-S300HI (4 Giga ports + 1 phone)

Router & Modem have Japanese firmware which I cannot understand and, according to the NTT East, I must rent both modem and router from them and "will not support any other modem/router setup".I could not understand if it was because of technical or contractual limits.

I have tried to test my throughput after the modem but I could not figure out where the DNS, IP, WAN etc strings of numbers should go and, in the end, I simply cannot connect to the internet from my laptop directly to the modem so I cannot perform the same speed tests after the modem.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS - Internet Access

Sep 28, 2011

I have used the router successfully since purchasing it in April, 2008. The router is connected via cable to the main computer and there are two other computers in the home that are/were used with it. However I noticed that whenever I looked into the available networks in the 'sub' computers it was described as 'unsecured'. I therefore went into the Router [via] and amended some settings... forget what they were set at however I changed it to WEP and now shows up as 'secured'.  

I now find that I cannot access the internet from the 'sub' [other two wireless] computers and get message 'network did not assign a network address to the computer' if checking 'repair does not restore connectivity... contact network manager. Use the system with Windows XP Professional on Dell Optiplex GX270.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Can Access Internet When LAN Connected

Nov 5, 2011

I've looked through the forums and FAQs and haven't seen anything that resolves my issue.  I recently moved from the US to Japan.  I had my WRT54GS set up in the States and the network worked fine.  When i got here, i set it up, hard reset the router and set up a new network.
I can access the internet when connected through the router via ethernet cable, but I cannot connect any of my wireless devices.  Easy Link Advisor says "internet connection is not working" but it is.  I have two computers connected via cable and they both work so it is not an issue of my ISP allowing multiple IP addresses.  
My wireless devices (XBox, PS3, laptop) can see the network but cannot connect through to the internet. I also just noticed that the "wireless mode" according to the EasyLink Advisor says "disable", however the wireless settings on my 192. server webpage is set to "mixed" and seems to be correct in all settings to be on.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs V7 And A Wap54g V3.1 - Unable To Get IP Address From Access Point

Mar 1, 2012

I have a wrt54gs v7 and a wap54g v3.1.  Both have latest firmware on them.  I set the access point to act as a repeater and entered the mac address from the router (It said to use the lan mac address.  is that right?).  I have them set on same subnet with static ip addresses.  They have same wireless ssid and password with one using channel 10 and the other using channel 2.  I can receive an ip address from the router and connect to internet.  I cannot get an ip address from the access point.  I tried a static ip on the computer and it will connect, but I don't have internet.  Am I missing something in the setup?  Can this access point act as a repeater for this router?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Don't Allow To Access A Specific Website?

May 18, 2012

I just bought the new EA4500 router and I'm experiencing problems to access the my bank website [URL] I can't access this website.
I thought that the problem could be with Comcast, but I tested my Mac with a cable directly connected into the cable modem and it worked fine. I was able to access every site.
It could be a problem with browser security, but I even tested with different computers (Mac, PC's, Ipad, Smartphones) and none of them were able to access the [URL] wirelessly.
It seems something strange with the router. I tested some forum solutions (MUT, QoS) but they didn't work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Possible To Limit Access For Specific Device (PC) To LAN Only

Within the Internet Access Policy section of the browser based utility, is it possible to limit access for a specific device (PC) to LAN only (not allow any traffic to external internet)?  I see that you can block internet access for a specific machine, however I didn't know if this was inclusive of LAN as well.If not, is there another way to achieve this via the E3000 or should I be looking for a solution on the specific PC itself?

WRT54GS Computers Connected To Switch Much Slower

Feb 15, 2012

Basically, my home network is comprised of a WRT54GS Router which the cable modem and my main computer are plugged into (as well as vonage, networked printer). That leaves one port open which is used to connect a Dlink DES-1105 10/100 switch. I am connecting it using a crossover cable, though that was not necessary.I just noticed that a computer connected to that switch gets MUCH less download speeds at, and it gets STUCK on the upload test (doesn't even start).I unplugged it and plugged it directly into the router for testing. I get 20-30 megs down (like I should), rather than 5-11 like the switch gave me (ONCE the switch gave me over 20, not sure why..)The upload test NEVER runs though. I've tried different computers as well. I tried setting the computer to "100 full duplex" manually and no luck.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Cannot Access Shared Computers On Mac

Nov 2, 2011

Recently installed an E4200 router to an MacPro following the setup as directed by Cisco Connection (connect Ethernet to router and then computer to router.)  The wireless and the hard-wire connectivity works fine with accessing the internet. However, we have lost the ability to connect to other computers on our LAN via the Shared folder connection.   This is usually accessed via the Sidebar (see image)  

 However with the E4200 in the mix, all we see is the router per its "given name" (what it was named on installation).  I have tried to follow the advice mentioned in other threads, such as "Can't access network shares with E3000" and nothing worked-- and those threads seemed to apply to Windows and PCs anyway.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Internet Access / Computers Cannot Ping Google

Nov 17, 2012

I have a WRT54G that has worked fine for years, with some PCs hooked up with Ethernet and various other devices connected wirelessly. I came home this afternoon and nothing going through the router could connect to the internet. I've made no changes to anything recently. 

I did troubleshooting with Comcast, and we determined that when their modem was hooked up directly to my computer then that computer could connect to the net. Problem solved as far as they are concerned--my router is busted. But I can still connect to the router, and enter its admin screen, and everything looks fine there. The computers on the router can all see each other. So the router is working. 

Once I hooked it back up to the modem my computers all lost their internet, but the router does get an IP successfully from Comcast. And it even assigns IPs to my computers that are hooked up to it. It's just that for some reason they still cannot get past the router.I used the ping function in the router admin site and the router pinged Google no problem. My PCs can ping the router without difficulty. But the computers cannot ping Google. 

I've tried every combination of power cycles and reboots you can name. I've tried duplicating the MAC address of the PC that connected to the internet onto my router. None of it has made any difference.

Home Network :: Connection Between Router And Cable Modem Goes Off At Specific Time?

Jul 20, 2011

Lately I've been experiencing connection problems between my router and cable modem. Every night after 11:00 PM EST, my Internet connection sporadically goes out. I called my ISP who said there was nothing wrong on their end. Plugging directly into my modem allows me to access the Internet. When I wake up in the morning, the connection is back until 11 or later again. I ran WireShark but I'm not sure what to be looking for. There are a lot of random things from the LLMNR protocol like standard query A zmtvrjaql.

Home Network :: Two Computers Can't Be On Router At Same Time

Aug 13, 2011

I'm using Comcast cable. I have a motorola cable modem. I run that into a Netgear 8-channel router with wireless (that's 8 physical network sockets).I have had these devices hard-connected to the router up until today and everything has been running fine:

* My Desktop (desktop running Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard and built-in Realtek NIC)
* T-Mobile VoIP device
* My Laptop (old Alienware running XP with generic NIC)

Today I took my old desktop motherboard from a year ago (Gigabyte motherboard, but not the same as My Desktop, built-in Realtek NIC), gutted it out, replaced the hard drive, got it running Windows 7 and set it up for my kids. Got it connected to the Internet early this morning when my machine was off and it ran fine.While it was updating, I fired up My Desktop and the router stopped working, all machines lost Internet, and I was at a loss.After some troubleshooting, it turns out that if I have My Desktop and the Kids Machine connected to the router and running at the same time, all devices on the router lose connection. I can have the Kids Machine on with the T-Mobile device and My Laptop and they all work. I can have My Desktop on with the T-Mobile device and My Laptop and they all work. But as soon as My Desktop and the Kids Machine come on together, everything gets hosed.The router is set to reserve different IP addresses by Mac Address for every machine. And I've verified that My Desktop gets its IP address correctly, and so does the Kids Machine. They are different IPs.I (usually) know just enough about networking to get a home network set up.

Home Network :: Getting Router B (DD-WRT) See Computers On Router A?

Dec 8, 2011

I have a somewhat unique setup with my 2 routers. Below is a layout of how it's setup, and I basically want computers and printers to see each other on the 2 different routers. The reason for the 2nd router is so I can have certain devices connecting to a US VPN Service for my Apple TV, and XBOX in order to watch Netflix and Hulu, since I'm stationed in the UK for the DoD.

Router A = Main router with VDSL connection (BT Home HUB 3.0)

Router B = WAN: PPTP router for VPN Service flashed with DD-WRT (WRT160N)

Router A connects to Router B by a CAT 5 from Router A LAN port to Router B WAN/Internet port (This is the only wired connection)

Router A =
Router B =

Router A has most of my desktops/media server/printer running on it wirelessly, and router B has my Apple TV, XBOX, and Desktop.

Since I have movies and music on my Desktop on Router A, I would like that data shared to my Apple TV on Router B. The only way I can get this to work right now is by constantly switching networks.Same goes with printing. Printer is connected wirelessly to Router A, and if I want to print with my laptop connected to Router B, it won't.

So is there a way I can make my Router B (DD-WRT) see computers on Router A? Router B has to have a PPTP WAN connection. Is this as simple as connecting another CAT 5 between the LAN ports of each router or is there some advanced routing I can do somewhere?
