Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wifi Connection Slowing Down When Downloading

Aug 2, 2011

I have the following setup at home:

-E4200 connected via Ethernet cable (100Mbs) to local ISP for internet access
-E4200 connected via Ethernet cable (1Gps) to my desktop PC
-E4200 connected via wireless (5Ghz with WPA2 personal) to my laptop
In general, everything works fine, I can download files from internet to my PC close to the maximum speed limit (80-90Mbs), the wireless connection goes up to 300Mbs and it can achieve around 10-14MB/s file transfer between PC and laptop.A lot of the time the wireless connection to my laptop is used for HD content streaming from the desktop PC. It works very well until I start downloading files to my PC with speed greater than 50Mbs, when the wireless connection speed drops very fast to about 500KB/s which results in interruptions on the video streaming. At the same time the router’s web interface reacts much slower than usual, as if the router’s CPU is overloaded.
I’ve read this follow up review on Small net builder url...and it’s clear that there are some issues when taking E4200 to the limit, but in my case it’s nowhere near that.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g - Internet Speeds Slowing Down When Wifi Enabled

Jun 27, 2011

I have both the WRT54G and a E1000 wireless routers and this problem is occurring for both of them.I use AT&T DSL and the speeds are fine when it is :

1. Not plugged into router

2. Wireless Network Mode is disabled through the router configuration page, having all devices wired.
However when wireless network mode is enabled, speeds drop significantly, 15~17 ms ping goes to 250~800 ping, and download speeds are way lower also. When the router is reset, the regular speeds will return for maybe 30 seconds to 1 minute, then it'll drop back down. I'm positive there's no outsiders connected to my network and this problem still occurs, only when the router is giving out wireless signals. Sometimes the problem randomly goes away for a while but it will always come back. I've tried many things, firmware upgrades, factory restore, none of them seem to work, the only solution so far has been to disabling it, but I need it to be on as there are other devices in other rooms of the house that need WiFi to connect to the internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1500 - Multiple Computer Slowing My Connection Down?

Feb 10, 2013

I'm using a Linksys E1500 on my Timewarner 20Mbs connection and I've noticed that anytime another computer on my network connects my connection speed take a significant drop.  This happens when Macs or PCs connect and there doesn't seem to be any common ground between any of them.  In addition the connection is slow wether the other PCs are idle or downloading anything, it seems to make no difference.  my ping in any game drops from 70 to 500 just for 2 other PC being on at the saem time on the network.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Updating Get Failed / Wifi Connection Is Disabled

Jul 14, 2012

The update "failed," due to an "unexpected error."  Wireless connection is disabled, although, as you have probably noticed, I can still connect to the internet (using an ethernet cable from my router to my laptop OSX 10.6.8).  Error Code 3018 is unknown to Cisco's website. Or should I just start over with the installation disk for my E4200 router?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Connection Will Drop / Windows Display Yellow Triangle On Wifi Signal

Feb 6, 2013

I have several E4200 routers deployed in our library district.  In one branch, we have been having sporadic problems with computers not being able to maintain a connection.  Typically the computer will connect and then the connection will drop and Windows will display the yellow error triangle on the wifi signal strength display.I have swapped the router with another brand new E4200 with the latest firmware but am still having this problem.

Linksys Wired Router :: RV082 Slowing Down Internet Connection

Jul 14, 2011

I have a RV082 Linksys router and at the moment it is slowing down my internet connection by a significant amount. With the router, I get about 3 Mbps and with a modem directly connected to my computer I get about 24 Mbps. Before with the router I used to get 15 Mbps, which is understandable because it is connected to 4 computers total. Maybe my setup has something to do with it. I got a cable that is connected to a modem, the modem is connected to the router, from which one port is connected to a computer, and another is used to connect to a Netgear switch, which in turn is connected to 3 more computers.
Everything was fine until I went on a trip and wasn't home for about 2 weeks, and when I came back, this happened. I tried restarting the modem, the router and all to no avail. I also tried to do a factory reset on the router and again got slow speeds.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Internet Connection For Downloading Using E1500

Sep 29, 2011

I set up the e1500 and everything worked well, my download speed over the wifi was something like 50mps, now its down to .3 mps over the wifi.  When I'm hardwired to the router the speed goes back up and everything is fine.  The only problem is the wifi. Its not the ISP because my roommates aren't having a problem with their wifi at all.  I haven't changed anything on my computer except updated some drivers since I set up the router.  My network card drivers are up to date and so is the router's drivers.  I'm also doing all this about 5 feet away from the router.
I have a Dell XPS L502x running win 7 64 bit.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 - Cannot Establish Connection With Max Speed For Downloading

Oct 18, 2011

I'm having an issue with my laptop. Although, from my provider, it should be possible to establish a connection at 25'000 kbit/s (download), max speed is at about 800 kbit/s. I'm only about 20 feet away from where the router is located and I don't use any phones (except for a cell phone). I read on this board, that I might have to change the wireless settings on the router and change the radio band but didn't manage to do so. I'm using Mac osx and a wireless connection.

Lost Internet Connection While Downloading Files Over The Wifi (adsl)

Dec 26, 2012

I have a wire ADSL connection and I use ADSL WiFi enabled router for distribute my internet connection with in my other devices (on my home network). When I downloading large files (more than 30MB) over the internet using my WiFi connection, my connection drop several times. However if I exchange large files within my WiFi network (with in home network via WiFi), my WiFi connection not drop (I can exchange 6GB files without any issue). Why is that? Is it my router issue or my ADSL connection issue? Most of the time after I lost internet connection, i can see my WiFi connectivity standby, it's not disconnect. However some time it completely disconnect. After I lost the connection (standby or completely disconnected) it again automatically connect.

I face this issue if i download large files on the internet, via the WiFi, if i download large files on internet using Ethernet cable, my connection not drop, it's stable. I use default wireless settings on my router? I use open WiFi connection.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Wifi Mac Filter

Dec 7, 2011

It would be nice if there was a "Note" field next to each MAC field whereby you could specify what device the MAC belongs to. I have quite a few listed but recently I've gotten rid of the devices. I have to go through all my current devices, not them in another program, and then remove the ones that are no longer needed.
The Wireless Client List doesn't capture all the names so that's not what I'm looking for.
Also, it would be great if the "Note" would tie into the Parental Controls so that I know exactly what device I'm choosing. It currently lets you select from the Wireless Client List, but the list doesn't have all the Client Names populated.
So, one, is this feature available (or something similar) and two, if not, please take this into consideration as a useful feature for a new version down the road.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Bridge - Would This Be The Way To Go For Max Wifi?

Dec 19, 2011

My e4200 v2 arrived today to replace my v1. I installed it along with a re1000 range expander for our big home. Works pretty well now, but did some google searching and it seems i could make my original e4200 into a bridge, would this be the way to go for max wifi? I could run a cat 6 cable upstairs along the outside of the home fairly easily.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - No Wifi After Power Loss?

Aug 26, 2012

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...

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wifi Is Not Working When Tv Turned On?

Jun 5, 2012

I am having a trouble with my router, our modem is the one that is connected to a TV box and it comes with a wifi function(a modem with a wifi function). I am not sure how to set it up, so I connected it to E4200 which is located in another room using CAT6 flat cable and set it to "Bridge mode". But whenever I open the TV box, the wifi won't work, and when it's closed, it works. :s how weird is that. Are there any problems? The modem with wifi will always work either way I open/close the TV box, but the E4200 wifi will only work when I close the TV box. I asked my service provider about this and they tell me it's not their problem anymore.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Disabled All Wifi Settings

Jul 16, 2012

I just purchased an e4200 in a corporate environment where we already have a wireless router.  I am not able to connect the 2 devices via a LAN cable and am wondering if I can get bridge mode working over the network (wireless).  I set the Linksys to bridge mode and assigned it an ip address.  I disabled all wireless settings, etc.  I then connected the internet port of the Linksys into a data  port (wall jack) that connects to our flat network switch. It says it's connected under "Status" but I'm not sure how to confirm this.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Dropping Wifi Speed?

Jul 30, 2011

I recently bought an E4200 and noticed that the wireless speed keeps dropping as it stays connected.As soon as I power it on, my iPhone and notebook connect at 54Mb, but as they remain connected, the speed keeps dropping to 48, 36 and one morning, my phone was oscillating between 5 and 11. The iPhone was almost at the same spot, and the signal was around 85~95%. On my 3 year old DIR-300, the speed don't change at all, and it's in a place where I can see around 15 connections. On the E4200 I can only see 2 other networks.I've already tried switching channels, fixed and auto channel, updating firmware and a few other common configurations. At first, I thought it was my repeater, but I turned it off and it didn't work. Turn my cordless phone off didn't change it also.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Disappointing Wifi Speeds With E4200?

May 6, 2011

I just got an e4200 and I'm haviong very disappointing wireless speeds. My network is setup as follows
powerline-----------wireless router ----------- laptop (using USB adapter Linksys AES1000, Intel bng internal, Belkin adapter)
If I plug into the back of the e4200 I can download at roughly the raw speed of the powerline 7 MBps. So I know the powerline connection is just fine and the routing function of the e4200 is just fine. When I use my laptop my speeds are wildly variable on both 2.4 and 5 ghz. With a clear line of sight to the router (maybe 7 feet away) they seem to hover around 1.5 MBps but have reached as high as 5.5 MBps twice. Using my much cheap older Buffalo router I routinely get speeds in the 4.5 MBps range which I would consider acceptable (although it has other, separate issues). I have followed all of the advice I can find on the forums. The range is also pretty terrible. If I'm 20 feet away and no longer have a clear line of site to the router I will frequenly have almost no signal and miserably slow download speeds in the kbps.I have made sure that I am using wpa2 with AES, I have changed my MTU to 1365, I have updated the firmware to the one released in March, and I have explored setting different channels on the router to no avail. I also contacted tech support which I'm only marginally sure understood that I was talking about the LAN connection and not the internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 How To Set Up Wifi On Business Network

Mar 17, 2013

The task is to share Internet via Wireless router for visitors without any Proxy/Windows Domain authentication.We have:1) Windows based Domain with Active Directory Users, with no DHCP setup, only Static IPs allowed. Used as a DNS server, the IP-address is, Domain name, say, Internet Connection via Proxy server which authenticates users via above-mentioned DNS server, the Proxy server IP-address is, ruled by MS TMG (ISA server)3) A Wi-Fi Router Cisco E4200.The local area network is wired and works fine. Domain users are happy.The idea is to make visitors happy with a free Internet connection without wiring them into the LAN.So:1) Respected visitors would not have to set up static IP-adresses on their devices to connect to Internet and2) Respected visitors would not have to enter domain credentials to get access to Internet, but3) Network security should not be jeopardized.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Keeps Slowing Down To Snail Speeds?

Jun 20, 2012

I'm tired of resetting my router. Every so often my e3000 will like forget its supposed to supply bandwidth. What I mean is that I pay for 7mbps down .5mbps up cable broadband and when the router is working fine I always get really close or over that. When it forgets what its supposed to be doing I get a painful .15mbps~1mbps down/up (usually under dial up tho) I check the modem and all values are running a full speed with good voltages, SNR's, and frequencies. It doesn't seem to matter if I change any values in the router after the issue starts. I need to do a reset either through the firmware "factory defaults" or the red reset button. Then everything goes back to working but I'm seriously getting tired of resetting my router every week or more. Restoring settings also causes it to go into crawl mode. This effects wifi and wired connections. Its also been upgraded to the latest firmware version from linksys.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Connecting Wag320n To E4200 Via Wifi Bridge

Dec 6, 2011

I purchased a WAG320N and E4200 and have manged to get the modem connected to the internet and it's running fine in that respect, with no adjusting done to the settings.My intentions are to connect the WAG320N to the E4200 wirelessly, as they are in seperate rooms in the house and have done a similar setup in the past with a 7300G Billion Modem and WRT54GL. 
With the E4200 I quickly discovered there was no bridge mode out of the box, but checking these forums got the indication that the firmware updates added this capability, so updated it..I entered the IP Address of the Router, the Subnet mask of the network and the Default Gateway / Modem router IP address into the fields, following this guide, but have not been able to get the computers to contact one another, nor ping the other devices.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Wifi Devices Cannot Pick Up 5 Ghz Band

Oct 11, 2011

All my wireless devices are 802.11n and none of them can pick up the 5 GHz band on my E4200 router.  I've tried all the different settings and channels on this band and still nothing.  The only device i have been able to pick up the 5 GHz band with is a Desktop PC with a  linksys AE1000 USB network adapter.  This is quite frustrating because I would like to put my blu-ray player and game systems on the 5 GHz band.  Laptop, PS3, XBOX 360, iPOD, and blue-ray player all can't pick up the 5 GHz band.  Either my unit is defective (which I don't think is the case or not even the USB adapter would be picking up the network) or there is something I am missing (which I have tried pretty much everything as far as I know with the settings, have two separate names for the band networks and have tried each individual channel under 5 GHz).  Also running current firmware version.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Low Wifi Signal / Maximum Performance

Apr 19, 2011

I've bought a E4200 router because of it's "maximum performance". With the normal settings i have a wireless range of maximum 10 m in the building.  after 5m I've got a low signal.I tested a cheap Netgear-router, which had the same range as the E4200 a 125 Euro.Is my E4200 broke or is it just a bad buy? The settings are standard (that shouldn't be the problem, I guess!?)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 V1 Cannot Seem To Find Work Around For Wifi Bandwidth

May 2, 2012

I recently bought myself the E4200v1 router, and have had several issues with it. One issue I cannot seem to find a workaround for is the wifi bandwidth problem.I have a 100/10 mbitl internet connection. The router claims to support 300/450 mbit speeds over wifi, so that should be plenty. in reality however, that isnt so.Even though my N-standard wifi adapter on my machine states it has a 130 mbit connection to the router, I consistently test the internet throughput when using wifi and to around 20-21 mbit. If I put in a cable, I instantly get full speed, 100/10 mbit.
Have to add; I am not new to the networking game, I have a CCNA and a degree in computer sciences, and work with hosting web sites using cloud tech every day. At this point, I have tried everything related to settings on the router, so I can only conclude that there's some kind of bug in the firmware. I would expect the standard firmware to work, and not having to install DDWRT or other custom firmware.
