Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g Lost Wifi Connection

Apr 29, 2012

My WRT54G lost the WiFi connection. I can get the internet if I connect the cable from my modem to my computer but my wireless connection is gone. So it's an issue with the router or settings. I called Linksys and was told the settings would have to be reset/updated. I was told there would e a fee. I did not want to pay a fee. I'd like to try to resolve myself.
 
I have a Mac laptop. Verizon ISP.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - PCs Lost Connection

Aug 19, 2011

I been using my WRT54G with no problems for 2 years now. I lost wireless. I have 1 pc wired to the router and it works fine, e-mail, accessing the internet, everything. But I have 6 wireless devices ( 2 PCs, a printer, Nintindo 3Ds, a laptop and a nook) that use the wireless part of the router at different times. Anyways, last night, one of the wireless PCs lost connection, not seeing the router. Then I checked with each of the other wireless devices. None of them see the router. I tried many different things: powering down the router for two hours, hitting the reset button for 30 seconds, I even uninstalled the router and re-installed it and ran the setup-wizard. Again the pc I have wired to the router works but none of the wireless devices can see the router.

I am trying to connect a myTouchQ (t-mobile) through my WRT54G.  The android shows that I'm connected and have a good signal, but I can't access the internet or any data.  When I turn off the wi-fi connection, I can access through the 4G network. My provider is Cox Cable.  I've unplugged the modem and the router for 30 seconds and even reset the security.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g - Regular Wifi Connection Failure After Updating To 4.21.5?

Aug 26, 2012

I recently updated my WRT54G V3 to frimware 4.21.5 and now get regular wireless connection issues.  The wired connection never has any problem (can connect to the router and the internet), but none of the wireless devices can see either.
 
The problem happens every couple of days, and cycling the power seems to be the only fix. When the problem does occur, the wireless devices don't even see the broadcasted SSID.  But cycling the WRT54G's power fixes that.
 
I've gotten a few suggestions to do a "30-30-30" reset, but can't find exactly what that entails.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Lost User Name And Password

Jun 19, 2011

I haven't used my Linksys WRT54G v5 wireless router for about 1 1/2 years and needed it now at a new place.I set a user name and password I've long forgotten for access to the web based security protocols for the modem and I've lost the disk for the control protocol program.I tried pressing the reset button to clear the modem and it took the WPA protocol off the modem so I can use it without any security but that's not a good thing.How do I get it freed up so I can get to the security protocols and put security back on my modem?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g Lost Connectivity - Need To Reset / Configure

Dec 26, 2011

I recently set up a wrt54g router that I got used from a friend.  I pressed the 'reset' button on the back, configured it for my computer according to the instructions on the website, and everything worked fine for a couple of days.  Then I lost connectivity, tried powercycling my modem, but had to reset and reconfigure the router again.  Worked fine again for a couple of days, then the problem repeated itself, so I reset and reconfigured again.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Suggestions To Prevent Lost VPN Client Connections

May 23, 2011

Dropped VPN connections.I experienced a similar issue a few years ago with my LinkSys WRT54G router with dropped connections to my corporate network using the Cisco VPN Client.  To make a long story short the problem was the result of the following:

1. The default ""Client Lease Time" on LinkSys routers is 0 which means 1 day or 24 hours.

2. By DHCP Protocol definition, DHCP clients must renew the DHCP client IP address lease at the 1/2 life cycle of   the lease (12 hours if using the router's default setting).  This is deadly for VPN clients as the short period of time when the client IP address is no longer valid, the VPN client considers this a loss of network connection. The LinkSys E-series routers further aggravate the situation by randomly assigning new IP addresses to DHCP clients instead of reassigning the client's previous IP address and tends to favor higher host IP addresses in the defined range.

Suggestions to prevent lost VPN client connections:

1. Change the "Client Lease Time" on the router to 8640 minutes (6 days 00:00:00).  

2. Prior to establishing a VPN client connection, use the Windows Command Prompt to issue the "ipconfig /renew"
command to obtain a new IP address from the router that will be good for 3 days (72 hours).  

3. Configure your E-series router to use the <DHCP Reservation> option to pre-assign IP addresses to your systems making sure they are outside the range of the dynamically assigned DHCP addresses.  Using default settings,these would be in the range of 192.168.1.2 thru 192.168.1.99 as the router starts at 192.168.1.100 thru 192.168.1.149.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt150n - Wifi Network Lost Its Name / How To Reset

We have the Linksys WRT150N router. A while ago it suddenly lost the name we gave it when we set it up and now it shows up as Linksys. Also, it is no longer secure, and sometimes we can't even see our network - it isn't even listed. How do I go in and change this? Will I have to reset the wireless information on my printer, etc?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt610n Lost Wifi After Firmware Upgrade

Apr 15, 2013

For some strange reason I was looking at my router and wanted to check and see if there were any firmware upgrades available.  I was not having any issues.  I noticed that there was an upgrade and one of the notes indicated that it fixed some speed issues. I saved my config before upgrading and reloaded config after upgrading the firmware.Since the upgrade, I have lost connectivity to my printer and have intermittent issues with my remote dvr.The printer is connected wirelessly thru a wet610n.The dvr is connected wirelessly thru a wet610n.I can ping the printer, and I can access the printers web page.  The issues appears to be two-way communication.The printer is an HP Officejet 6500a and allows eprint.  The printer can no longer contact the eprint server.I have turned off my firewall on my computer and still cannot pring (why would I have to change this anyway, it worked before.)I use a ddns server for software access to my dvr.  It worked flawlessly before.Now, the dvr is visible sometimes and sometimes it's not.
 
My wrt610n is v2 hardware.I called for support, but of course since the warranty has ended, support has ended unless you pay.Nothing like a firmware fix to break your router.I am very disappointed with the upgrade and the support provided.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt160n Lost Wifi Connectivity After Firmware Update

Dec 2, 2011

I updated the fimware on my WRT160N v3 and followed it up with a reset of the router.  I then restored the router settings that I had saved.  All the settings appeared to be good, but none of my wireless devices would connect.  I reneted the pass phrases (WPA2) but still nothing.  Tried to change the passphrase, still no good.  I then did a factory reset of the router from the setiings page and manually re-entered and save the settings, again nothing.  All of my devices are able to "see" the network and the correct SSID.

Cisco Wireless :: Sporadic Signal Lost With Linksys WRT54G Routers

Jul 11, 2011

I have a office that was converted from a older townhouse.  The building has 3 floors with the distant of each floor expands no more than about 60 - 75 feet from end to end of the building.  Not sure what's in the walls as the building is at least 20-25 years old.  Total number of users is about 20 - 25. 
 
Here is the problem..
 
I have a WRT54G wireless router setup to provide wireless coverage for this office, located on the 2nd floor,  For some reason, about 10 - 15 feet from the opposite end of the building, the signal drops off big time. Regardless of the floor.  So to assist with the signal, I installed a wireless 300N Gain extender on the same floor on the opposite end of the building where the signal was weak.  At first, it seemed to work by boosting the signal, but then it seems to show the same issue as before.. sporatic signal loss, signal fluctuation, etc.
 
My question is should I replace the wireless booster with multiple wireless APs located throughout each floor... maybe 1 per floor?  If so, is there a trick to configuring all 3 APs to have the same SSID and same encryptionsso it will be seamless to the users?  Since the first AP works fine, I wanted to get 2 additional WRT54G units.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Win 7 Wifi Causes Wrt54g To Slow Down 20x

Apr 5, 2013

My wrt54g (firmware old - v1.00.6) has run fine for years until my daughter got a laptop with win7. All my other systems still run XP or win2k. I only run wireless with her win7 and one netbook with xp, all the other connections are wired.
 
Going to speedtest.net and after I reset (pull power) the router, I get 20Mbps download. After the win7 wifi runs for a bit, download speed drops to 2 Mbps or less. It seems to be after she goes to you tube and starts watching videos. If I reset again, it immediately goes back to the full speed of 20. I measure this after she's taken her laptop off the network. So, whatever her win7 is doing, it stays that way after she disconnects (i.e. slow on my other systems) until the reset. I also measured the speed on her win7 system and it also would slow there as well and speed up after a reset (for a while).

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g - Setting Up Wifi Network?

Apr 27, 2013

I have the following equipment
E2500 wireless N router (2 of these)
WRT54g router (B/G)
WAP54g access point (B/G)
 
I am planning to set up a wi-fi network for a single story motel. It is C-shaped; about 300 feet along the longest side with "legs" of 120 and 70 feet. I have included a diagram that I drew for the person that will install it. Until now I have only used that single WRT54g in the office for the entire property and it covers about half the property (left side) but not well and with a dead spot in the top left because of too many walls to go through.
 
My plan starts in the office (bottom left) with a WRT54g connected to the DSL modem as it always was. That would be connected to one of the E2500s in the middle so it can cover the most area. From there two others would shoot out to each corner (the other E2500 and the WAP54g). They will all be wired together with Cat 5e "riser cable". The routers will be placed in a wide open attic.

1. Is this is a good plan for the size of property? I have heard that N routers have a range of 150ft in every direction so that's why I'm putting one in the middle. Keep in mind that while the attic is open and wood constructed, the walls between rooms are concrete firewall and they haven't been wi-fi friendly. Hopefully putting them in the attic takes care of this.

2. Does starting with a B/G router at the modem mean the N routers will revert to B/G?

3. What are the main settings I need to know about? What "mode" does each need to be set to?  Do they need different default gateways?

Can I use the same password/security for all of them? Should I use the same SSID for all?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Iphone 5 Wifi Connectivity With Wrt54g

Dec 1, 2012

I am having problems with connectivity and my iPhone 5. The Wi-Fi is okay in some parts of my home network, however in others it is abysmmal. When I bring my computer to the places where the iPhone has problems with signal strength/staying connected the computers have full or almost full strength and no problems. I upgraded firmware for the router, spoke with applecare, have reset the router multiple times, and have been trying different channels. I had the phone in with the Apple store where they concluded nothing seems wrong with the hardware. The phone doesn't seem to have problems like this on other wifi networks I have tried. Using a speed test on the iPhone at home in the low connectivity areas results in horrendously poor latency numbers.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Xbox Lost Connection?

Dec 27, 2011

The problem: running a standard single band 2.4gz BT homehub. When using my xbox and wireless headset (razer chimeara) the xbox loses connection. When i tuen the headset off i no longer lose connection. This suggests to me that the headset is simply emitting on the same frequency and bullying the connection, thus the xbox disconnects I have purchased the wireless N adapter to allow the xbox to run on the 2.4 or 5ghz band. I am now looking for a duel band router to allow my xbox to connect to the 5gz band and hopefully this will rectify my interference issue with the headset. I have been lookijg at the e4200 as this supports seperate ssid for 2.4 and 5ghz band, so the xbox can run on the 5ghz and the intererence from the 2.4ghz headset should subside - do you think this would work? Also, with the single ssid duel band routers, where 2.4/5gjz share the same ssid - how would my wireless N devices know to run on the 5ghz and not the 2.4?
