I've recently upgraded my home network and now my wdtv can't connect to my shared hdd's on my pc for streaming purposes. Previously I had some piece of **bleep** G router/modem combo from Verizon and I didn't have any problems accessing my network shares, I did have a streaming problem with some .mkv's because the signal was so poor. I Finally dropped some cash on a d-link modem and an linksys E3000 router. Here's the messed up part, if my wdtv is plugged, physically, into my router I can access my shares just fine. I can stream movies with out any lag what so ever. If I go wireless (as I have previously been with the old westell router/modem combo) I can no longer see my network shares. I can connect to the internet and do netflix, pandora, ect. But when I go under network shares all that shows up is my router..
I replaced my old Linksys WRT54G wireless router with the new E3000 wireless router. The installation was a breeze, but not what followed henceforth. I was able to access the internet on my wireless desktop/laptop/Netflix ROKU player/WD TV live media player, but lost access to all the network shares. I spent a lot of useless time with Linksys chat support and phone support, where they said their responsibility is only getting the internet working. They said they are not responsible for file and printer sharing issues, and suggested I use a third-party paid support package to resolve my issues. Over and above spending a hefty amount for the lates top of the line E3000 router, I was not going to shell out additional money for support.
Thinking that it could probably be due to some Windows XP firewall/anti-virus (McAfee) issues, I disconnected the E3000 and connected the old WRT54G back again. Lo and behold, everything started working fine again. I could access the shared folders of my desktop (to which my router is attached) and printer, from the wireless laptop/desktop/media player just as before without any problems. I then switched back to the E3000 and lost the shares again. So I have come to the conclusion, there is definitely some setting within the E3000 that is preventing the file and printer sharing. I just can't figure out what it could be, and am at a point of returning it back to the store as defective. The extra N-speed is useless to me if my devices can't access the network shared content.Also, I tried to set up the UPnP media server feature of the E3000 by attaching USB storage and configuring it via the Linksys web based utility, but my media player is unable to access the content.
I have a Western Digital "WD 6400AAC External MYBook that I can not create shares on, nor edit the public folder. In each case, I receive the message "Error on page". I've updated my firmware, several time, to the latest build. I've formatted the my WD drive using the router and my computer, and each time I try to create a share, "Error on page" shows on the bottom left corner of the page and nothing happens. I tried several other drives and the results are the same.
I have the E3000 router. I set it up about a month ago and had my laptop and iphones and ipads all hooked up and working great. About two weeks ago, all of my devices are having problems connecting to the network and if they do connect, it is unstable (slow speeds or constantly dropping from the network). I know it is not the internet due to the fact that my LAN connection (hardwired) runs great. I am pulling my hair out trying to figure out why. I have restored to factory defauls and started over setting it up with no change in performance. I have the latest drivers on the router and the laptop. I thought maybe it was vista and my laptop or network card, but the fact that I cannot get my phones or ipads to connect with good performance I am starting to think it is something to do with the router. Also, just for more info, I am using Chater cable internet. I am running vista 64x on the laptop.
I am trying to connect my DishNetwork DVR up via a wireless link to the E3000.My home network consists of a Linux Server acting as a router/gateway for a DSL link, with several pc's (XP/MAC/Linux) connected on a local 10/100 lan.The existing lan addressing scheme uses static IP's and the DVR requires a DHCP link.I thought the E3000 would solve that issue by using it's DHCP server capability to host the DVR wirelessly and integrate it into the rest of the lan.I set up the DHCP and reserved an IP address, which the DVR pick's up just fine, but although I can ping the gateway and DVR in both directions, I am unable to access the internet.I've tried to set up a static route, but I think I'm not doing it correctly.

I can't see my network shares after upgrade altough everything works fine , the network scanner shows all the atatched devices but in Eplorer when I click Network there is nothing shown on two computers running Win7 64.I did downgraded the firmware back to .01 but still no network .
Up until 2 days ago I've had no problems with my v1 running 1.0.05. I was copying something to my drive and the connection became non-existent. Going into the menus it shows my drive as having full capacity available. Well i konw thats not true. i unplugged it and directly connected it to a PC. All of my info was there. I connected it back to the router and nothing. No shares of any sorts. It shows it detected the drive. Does not show USB speed and does not allow you to create new shares.
Basically I use the WDTV to stream movies from my PC and external harddrive (which is plugged straight into the router) to my TV. The WDTV has a "Network Shares" section and my PC and harddrive usually appear here.
The only way I can get them to show is to reboot the router each time I want to use the WDTV player.
Is there a setting on the router which I need to enable/disable which will prevent the network shares drop?
I've been searching how to make my E3000 use the DHCP and IP address on my primary router so I can share printers and computers on same gateway IP. I tried turning off DHCP on E3000, but not sure how to tell it to use the DHCP from the source "INTERNET"
I have Att internet services and the modem I received from them has WiFi with it. The signal that it produces is very weak. I was curious if there is any way to use my E3000 to boost or repeat the signal so WiFi will extend through out the house.
I recently switched my router from an older Linksys WRT 54GS to an E3000. The WRT 54GS was working perfectly fine, but I needed to upgrade to a 802.11n router to use with some of my devices at home. I unplugged all the cables from the WRT54GS, and connected all the cables into the E3000 - in the exact same sockets and order they were on the old router. When powering on, all the lights eventually turned on (Power, Internet and Ports 1 to 4), except the wifi is still off. I tried running the installation CD, but it says it cannot find the network. I tried a reset (back button) as well as 30-30-30 reset, but no matter what I do, the wifi indicator still doesn't turn on. When switching back to the old router, it has no problem broadcasting a wifi signal again. Is there anything else I should try, either on my PC settings or the E3000 router itself?
I've made an observation that the newer routers above my E3000 don't have LED icons to indicate the port is connected/active and also to show Wi-Fi is active? I find this good at a glance without having to go look in the back of the unit to see which ports are open etc.
lost wireless to all wireless devices (laptop, iPhone and iPad). Still have hard wired ethernet internet access from desktop. Tried resetting router, powering off router, resetting and powering off cable modem. Nothing works. Lights on router all on.
My E3000 has been working fine with 1.0.04 build 6 FW. Recently some devices (kindle, iPad) can't connect to internet while connected to E3000 via WiFi network. Had a look my E3000 router IP is 192.168.0.1 but those problematic devices has IP 192.168.1.XXX allocated by DHCP not sure why. Currently I manually set up static IP 192.168.0.XXX for those devices.
This is another E3000 "connection drops" thread. Some background: I have two E3000's that are cascaded. The main router is in my basement connected to my cable modem and is my DHCP server. The second one is on the main floor and provides my wireless signal (no DHCP, and is hard connected to the main router).I have lots of connection drops with the wireless router on the main floor. Lately I have noticed a trend, though. My connection drops mostly when I browse my network (usually browsing pictures on another computer) or when large files or videos are being transferred. If I connect a cable, I have no problems. When wireless, I have signal drops.I have tried every trick and tip that I've seen on this forum or been provided in the Linksys FAQ. I've changed the beacon interval, fragmentation threshold to 2306 and CTS to 2307, I've tried changing channels, I've checked and unchecked boxes for NAT, Filters, etc. I've tried different combinations of WPA2 passwords. I've tried dynamic routing, static routing, blah blah blah...
When I set the 5Ghz channel to Auto(DFS) it defaults to channel 36 and 144Mbps. When I use other channels, I get 300Mbps. Either way, my connections still drops.
I have the latest firmware 1.0.04 Build 6.I even have the router sitting on top of a laptop cooling pad to keep it cool.No matter what I do, as soon as I start browsing my network the wireless connection drops.I am so frustrated! I upgraded my WRT-160N to this E-300 router to get the faster speed and dual band but have had nothing but trouble. I never had a connection drop with my 160N.
EDIT: I notice that when my signal drops, I can see the power LED blinking on the router, like it's going through a reboot cycle.
I've got a 2 month old e3000 with the latest firmware. (1.04 i believe) I have run speedtests from wired and wireless machines on my network. All of the wired connections show a speed of around 15Mps (which is consistent with my providers guaranteed speed) but when I test any of the wireless connections I get somewhere between 3 and 7 Mps. I get the same degradation in speed when I stand directly next to the e3000.
Other then SSID and Passphrases I have everything set to the default settings. I have rebooted multiple times with no change. The e3000 is mounted on a 2x4 with several feet of clearance all around and is also located in the coolest part of the house. I am using Speedtest.Net for all the tests.
I am running an E3000 router with 1.0.04 build 6 Dec 6, 2010 firmware. I have two computers on a wired Gigabit LAN and others on WiFi (802.11g). At first, all works well and I get normal throughput via the WiFi computers.However, after about a week, WiFi speeds crawl to a fraction of what I normally get (from 12-13 Mbps down to 1-2 Mbps and from 4.8 Mbps up to less than 1 Mbps). My cable modem service is 40 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up (I get 38.9 down and 4.9 up via the LAN based computers)
How I resolve this? I need to reboot the router! Once it comes back on-line, my throughput on WiFi is restored UNTIL the following week where speeds are back to a crawl. While WiFi crawls, the LAN based computers still enjoy maximum throughput.
I've installed a RV042 and my terminals cant even ping each other. They have Internet, but they cannot ping each other, or open network shares. It is not a dns problem becouse it does not work with the IP.
I bought an E3000 to replace wi-fi in my bbox2.My bbox2 has address 192.168.10.1. The router has address 192.168.10.20 (mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway: 192.168.10.1), so far, no problem. At the router, I disabled the DHCP server.What I want is that this has soitl BBOX that assigns DHCP addresses.How do I do? I do not understand how I should configure the E3000.
Clearly there is something fundamental I do not understand about networks. Until recently I was running a wrt54g with a network called (let's say) "G". It was secured using WPA.
I just bought an E3000, set up a network (let's say "N") and disconnected the WRT54G.
Problem: Not only does the G network still show up among my wireless networks in Win7 and Ubuntu 12.04, but so does something called "G-guest". Not only that, they show up as unsecured wireless networks. Not only that, I can access them.
How do I drive a stake through the G network? Even my bloody phone is connected to "G-guest", which shows up with the properties:
Status: Connected Security: Open (How do I close this when I don't even have a hardware devices associated with the network???) Link Speed: 65Mbps IP address: 192.168.33.102 Proxy settings: None
If I disconnect from the "N" network and try to connect to the "G-guest" network, my browser directs to http://192.168.33.1/guestnetwork.cgi which displays a page with the Cisco logo against a blue background, a password text box, and the message Enter the guest access password to access the Internet. Ask the owner if you don't know the password. The guest access password can be found using Cisco Connect. Of course, the password I had in place when I was running the "G" network on the WRT54G does not work. This behavior occurs on both my laptop running Ubuntu and on my Android phone.
I have 3 computers in total: 2 desktops and 1 laptop.
1. My primary PC is connected physically to my router.
2. My (downstairs) laptop is connected to the wireless.
3. My other PC connects to the wireless network via USB wireless adapter.
I was having issues getting #3 connected to the wireless network. I used the Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ PIN number provided to me by the Linksys Wireless Manager to no avail. The E3000 router and #3 could never find each other.After calling support, it turns out that more often than not, "other" wirless management software (in my case Linksys Wireless Manager that came with the USB device) was interfering with my Windows XP Wireless Manager.Rule of thumb: Always let your native operating system manage the wirless networks that are available to it. It does a far better job and is 10x more reliable than software provided by 3rd party vendors.Specific to my case: Windows XP, I had to enable the Windows Wireless Manager and uninstall the Linksys Wireless Manager Software. Here it is...Enabling Windows Wireless Manager These directions are for Windows XP:
1) From the Windows Start menu, click Control Panel.
2) Click Network and Internet Connections.
3) Click Network Connections.
4) Right-click the icon for your "wireless network connection", then click Properties.
5) At the top of the window, click the Wireless Networks tab.
If the "Wireless Networks" tab does not appear between the "General" and "Advanced" tabs, you are not on/in the wireless network connection settings:a) click cancelb) Right-click the icon for your wireless connection and choose "Enable". c) return to step 4 6) Check the checkbox next to "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".
These directions are for Windows Vista:
1) Go to the Windows start menu and then the control panel.
2) Open Network and Sharing Center.
3) Click Manage Network Connections (from the left side menu).
4) Right click on the network adapter 'Wireless Network Connection' and choose "Properties" and click "Continue".
5) At the top of the window, click the "Wireless Networks" tab.

I purchased a E3000 Router to replace a dead Dlink about a week ago..I have 4 wired computers on my network. All in the same workgroup. I have 2 computers connected directly to the E3000, and 2 computers connected to a ProCurve managed switch on the other side of the house. I can ping the computers on the switch side of the network but i cannot see those computers in the network section of windows 7. I can also navigate to them via \ computername.
I used to have a WRT54G Router at home. I would regularly use Cisco Systems VPN Client to connect to my work router and the RDP to my work PC. (The router at work is Cisco 2811.)A couple months ago, I finally upgraded my home router to a Linksys E1000. Since that time, I have NOT been able to:1) Connect from my work PC to my home PC using Windows RDP2) Connect from home PC to VPN at work via Cisco VPN ClientIt's like the Linksys router at home an Cisco router at work refuse to speak to each other.A week ago, I finally gave up and bought a Linksys E3000. Exact same connect problems as the E3000.To test, I plugged my old WRT54G back in just to see, and lo and behold, all my connection problems go away. Plus the E3000 in again, and I cannot connect b/w home and work.A few other notes:From work, I have successfully used RDP to reach out to other test PCs (friends computers), but I can't get to my home network with the E3000 working. I also can connect to home via RDP using other internet connections, like if I'm in a hotel or airport.It's just that my Linksys E3000 at home and the Cisco 2811 at work refuse to acknowledge each other.
I have an E3000 Dual Band. Currently, I have 3 laptops and two 360s on our network. They work fine. Up until last week so did my other kid's computers. They came home from college and attempted to get on our network unsuccessfully. In their network and sharing center, both their computers say under view your active networks: unidentified network (public network). Access type: No network access. Connections: has the correct network name information. When they attempt to access the network with the correct password, they show 4 bars of reception and a message of limited access (along with the above message). I did a little checking and found that our router info differs from their auto configuration. Our IPv4 starts with 192 not 169 like thiers. Also, the subnet masks are different. Also, they have no info in the IPv4 default Gateway, IPv4 DNS Server, and IPv4 WINS Server. Finally, my wife tried to acces the network with an ebook reader. It shows secured WPA2, but won't access it.
I just installed and started using my E3000. Love it so far but I have a question about the guest network. I did set one up with a network name and password. It does show up under available networks but as an unsecured one. How do I go about securing it?
I have a 1TB USB hard drive attached to my E3000 (current firmware), I use it for FTP and Shared Media on my network. Recently I have noticed that I have files out there that have 0 KB in size (file names/details are still these), I re-upload the files to the folders and during the upload the correct file size shows but a bit later(within minutes) they all show 0 KB again. I have not seen this type of behavior on an HD before. Additionally, I added some 20 mp3 files to the FTP site, same thing happened but then I zipped up the 20 mp3 files and the zip file uploaded with not problems and is still there with its proper file size, of course this is not a solution when I want to play media files on my TV.
I have a Linksys e3000 and a Linksys WRT120NVery simple setup. the 3000 is in my office. There is a cable that goes from this routerto the living room across the house, it is just laying there. Since I cannot get a wireless signal into that room,I would like, using the cable that is hanging there to make use of the other linksys and provide a wireless signal to the living room, all under the same network. In essence, extending the wireless network using the cable in the living room that is connected to the main router in my office.My question is, without touching the master router, how would I set the 2nd router in the living room up?I understand that DHCP on the 2nd router needs to be turned off, and a channel selected so that it does not overlap. Same SSID, Sam WPA2 key.Or would there be a device better suited for this?I do not want to extend the 2 rooms wirelessly I want to use the cable, then use the wireless in the living room for wireless devices etc.

Scientific Atlanta 2203C modem to a Cisco Linksys E3000 wireless router.Ok, so if I turn everything on I can see all computers from all computers, but after a few hours/days (random time) everything disappears, and I have to unplug the router and then everything is back. Is there a way to stop this, and just have everything just be there all the time?

I haven't found a way to rename the Guest account on my E3000 router. If my router is named HomeRouter the Guest account automatically gets the name HomeRouter-guest. I have disabled the router's SSID broadcast, but it still broadcasts the almost identical Guest account.
I have an E3000 router, 2 computers connected via wires, and a PS3, airport express, laptop, and a few other devices which connect wirelessly. I've been having intermittent difficulties with specific services disappearing within my network. From time to time, some of the services which run across the network stop working; The Airport disappears (cannot contact it via airport utility or see it as an airplay destination), and the Playstation stops being able to contact media server running on wired computer. When this occurrs, all devices are still able to connect to the internet, and I am even able to copy files between a hard wired computer and laptop via CIFS (windows file sharing) protocol. Power cycling the E3000 solves this; the airport reappears, the PS3 can once again see the media server running on the PC, etc.
