The wireless drops specifically from my laptop constantly at random times. When the wireless drops in order for me to be able to reconnect i have to restart the router itself. There are also random times where the Wi-Fi stops broadcasting altogether. I have a computer connected via Ethernet and it does not lose connection during these times. All the computers are running Windows 7 and the Router is up to date on firmware.
I bought a DIR-655 (F/W v. 2.00NA) about 6 months ago. It worked well until a couple of weeks ago. Then it started to stop broadcasting WIFI signal without apparent reason. When it did so, I could still connect to it and internet with wired connection, but the WIFI scan does not show my SSID. If I reboot it (either through the admin interface, or just disconnect and reconnect the power), I would be able to reconnect to WIFI, but then WIFI will stop working again in about 8-10 hours. I am rebooting this thing 2-3 times a days and it is very frustrating. Curiously, I borrowed a N300 router to try out
My router has recently stopped broadcasting wifi, unfortunately it also no longer lets me use it as a router to get internet. if i plug directly into the modem i can get internet. but while using the router i get a computer symbol with an explanation mark on it
I've done a firmware upgrade to latest version v4.21.5 yet my Wifi still isn't broadcasting for my devices to find and connect as of last night (Aug 5, 2012). This hasn't happened before, so I was hoping it would return but still hasn't started working yet.My iphone just says "unable to connect."
I just bought a dlink 655 from amazon and for some reason the router stops broadcasting on wifi. I cannot connect to it through my laptop or ps3. The only thing that fixes this is removing the plug from the back of it and putting it back in, once i do this, the SSID shows up once again and all is well until the next day (or 2 days after)
I have two DIR-655s. One is my main router, connected to my modem. The other, on the other side of the house, is set up as an access point. I followed this guide to set up my AP: [URL]
Both are are hard wired. I have both of them using the same SSID. Both are 802.11g only, have the same security mode, and key. The only wireless difference is the channel. One uses 6, while the other uses 11.
On initial setup, everything is fine, but after a few hours, the AP just seems to stop broadcasting a signal. I'm using "Wifi Analyzer" on Android to monitor it. When I look at the AP, the wifi indicator light is still on. If I log into it, change the channel, and press save on the "Wireless Settings" screen, it will broadcast for a few more hours before stopping again. The wired connect of this AP always seems to work (Xbox is hard wired to it).
AP Hardware Version: B1 / Firmware Version: 2.03NA
I have used our home network with an apple iOS baby monitor app for a year without issues. An iPod is the transmitter and broadcasts the signal on my home network. Any other iOS device can pick up the signal when on "receiver" mode. This app worked great for over a year, but recently the app drops out after 1-3 hours. The dropped device also cannot get to the internet via Safari or communicate via the app. The WRT160Nv2 router indicates that the devices are still connected and the iOS devices indicate they are still connected, but they cannot communicate.
To fix the issue, I simply toggle the unit to/from airplane mode. This disables/enables the wifi and the unit jumps right back on the network and all is well. This is a pain though when the baby monitor drops in the middle of the night and we have to walk to the baby's room.
I have tried to recreate the issue with other video steaming (iphone video to appleTV), but I have not found the issue with any other app. Maybe I just have not run the movie long enough (3 hours+) like I do with the baby monitor app at night. Are there any wifi router timing or other settings that could cause something like this?
Everything was going great until tonight. I can connect to the internet fine wired. Wireless devices can connect to the router, but cannot access the internet. No changes were made to the unit. Updatae firmware to 1.02.11 but that did not fix the issue.
I have cable internet 40 mbps my win xp pc is wired and gets 38-39 mbps download laptop1 is 1 year old w/ win7 gets 28-30 in the same room and laptop 2 is new w/ win7gets 4-5 in the same room I have updated firnware for router speed #s are from speedtest.net
I upgrade the firmware to Version: v1.52.0. The connection by wired is very good, i haven't slowness in internet. But if i'am connect by wifi, the website are very slow to load, and i can't see video on youtube without waiting.
get a new router. but lets give it a try. I read many many post on how to optimize the speed of the router but none worked so far.I got a great wired Internet connexion hitting between 45 to 60 Mbps[URL] the wifi is crazy slow on Iphone, Macbook pro and iPad staying between 3 to 8 Mbps....
I tried to change all of the specs, did the firmware update. is there a perfect configuration with the new firmware ?
I've got a router in room where my cable modem comes in. In center of house, I have another router, N Ultra Range PLUS, WRT160N.
My laptop, which I use in front room near that middle room router and my husband's desktop, also near that middle room have no problems. My desktop which is right next to the main router in back of house (where the cable modem is), has the weakest signal. I guess that's because the WRT160N is further away from it and has two walls to go through. But most of time signal was good - just not as good as the other two computers. And even when signal was Low, it never dropped connection.
Recently I got a new smart phone with WIFI. Anytime I have turned on the phone and used it, I often then have to refresh my wireless signal or reboot computer because it loses the connection. I read somewhere on internet that this may be because of the additional device but again, it doesn't effect the other two closer computers.
I've tried all sorts of settings, and I'm still holding out that its a setting possibly, but I have a E3500 and devices on both 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz... Most of them, probably when idle, seem to stop working over WIfi. They still have decent connection, but every internet related request just times out. Disable and reinable the wifi and it works great again.
Could this be defective wifi radios? or could it really be interference? I have it happening on multiple devices. Also, I'm not far away from the router when it occurs, and when I reconnect, it seems to work just fine for a while. Basically the big problem is on the cell phones and tablets because I'll miss notifications... I'll turn off the wifi and turn it back on when I use the device next, then a flood of notifications will come in. Again, it's not just a phone thing, tablets and laptops have the same problem, that's just the main reason I want it fixed.
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.
i have 2 DIR 615 routers which both stop broadcasting SSIDS. Ive had only one connected at a time, thinking it was a bad router, but both behave the same way. Is this a known issue or something ? What happens is, after some time (it varies..sometimes 3hours..sometimes longer), the router stops broadcasting the ssid, and I can no longer connect any of my wireless devices to it. The hardwired connection does work (I have a server connected to it, and it appears to work).The only settings I have changed is my SSID name, and wpa2 password. I've set up one virtual server to port forward requests to the server. Thats it. Nothing complex or anything. And both routers behave the exact same way, meaing they stop broadcasting the SSID.
I bought a new E1200 this fall when I got a new Internet provider who recommended it to replace my really old one. It worked fine until a month or so ago when it would occasionally disconnect. At first I thought it was my Internet company but I started using the Cisco Connect app to fix it after restarting the router. The first time it worked great for about 2 weeks, but a few days ago it started disconnecting several times a day. Now it doesn't last 10 minutes before it quits. It tells me the firmware is up to date
I have 2 computers hooked up to the router via wire and wife using wireless on her laptop.I'm playing games on internet and soon I noticed I got occasionally ping spikes.. The ping get beyond 1000 - 1500 so the screen is in fact temporary freezed. Sometimes those spikes can occur with 10-15 minutes inbetween them sometimes it can be an hour or more before I notice it.I'm running Windows 7 on both my computers. I first thought it was Microsoft was to throttle the packets so I did the change in the registry. But these spikes still happen. After some testings I also notice they happen at the same time on both computers so my conclusion is that it's something with the router.
I have a linksys WRT54G that has been bugging out a lot. It stops broadcasting the SSID briefly and won't start again until it reboots. Annoying enough problem on it's own, but not my primary concern.My concern now is that when I tried to upgrade the firmware to the latest version (which I presume was causing the problems) the router now is essentiallyunresponsive. The upgrade was successful according to the control panel site, but ever since the required reboot as part of the upgrade process the router hasn't worked properly. 1) The power light blinks constantly rather than staying lit.2) When I plug directly into it sometimes I get access to local networks and other times I don't (limited connectivity). But I never get access to the internet if it's plugged into it as well.3) When I try to go to the control panel site (through the 192.168.1.1) the site wont loadGranted this router is old, but it was working fine other than dropping the broadcast every once in a while. It did need a firmware upgrade, but the upgrade seems to have been a bad choice
I have an E2500 router. When I enter 192.168.1.1 as a web address I am asked for a User name and password. When I do not enter anything for user name and put “admin” in password the screen again asks me for the same two things and eventually goes to a 401 message.
When I enter admin in user name and my secure password to allow devises to connect to the network it lets me in. I thought the password to enter the system settings and the one to enter the network are usually separate. When I open the Cisco Connect program and go into the various menus there my “secure” password is written and visible for anyone who clicks it. Is this how it is supposed to work?Also, how do I occasionally change the password to enter into the network.
Just bought a WRT400N and set it up using 5ghz and 2.4ghz bands, and using WPA TKIP for both. Problem is that both my laptop and my iphone occasionally lose connectivity and my iPhone says that my WPA key isn't valid.
I have WRT54G2 router. All settings are more-less default and the behavior is following.You start up the router. If you do not connect wireless device within 10 minutes, then you have to restart the router.You have assigned IP via wifi, and when you connect cable device to the router, the wifi PCs are disconnected.
I just bought a certified refurbished router. The model is WRT610N-RM. Where's what I've done:
1. Downloaded newest firmware from the site using old router, Then disconnected. Connected a lan cable to the new router. Powered up the router. Held down reset untill the light blinks. Went to the browser and typed 192.168.1.1. Entered password to go into router and upgraded firmware. 2. 5 Ghz Settings: Went to Wireless menu. Selected "manual", mode is "mixed" (If i chose N only for 5 Ghz, then It won't save my setting for internet security. Instead it will be "disable" no matter what". The rest was default. SSID is enabled. Then I set up the 2.5 Ghz. I have 3 other computers with N wireless card. Some others have G, however when I viewed available networks, I only see the 2.4 Ghz ssid. I tried to reboot and unplug power for 10 seconds, but no luck seeing the 5 Ghz.
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.
I just purchased the E2500 and both bands are only broadcasting transfer rates at 144N instead of the advertised 300N. My old router broadcast at the 300N rate on the same ISP serving a range of devices. I contacted chat support and tried to discuss the issue for about 30-60 minutes before getting fed up with the lack of progress on the issue. The gist I got from the support agent was that I would only be able to achieve the 300N rate in N only mode instead of the mixed mode. I don't know the available modes of all the client devices that would need to connect but this would not be acceptable as my old router was capable of serving the range of devices while also giving the max rate of 300N to those devices that could utilize it. I verified the difference in transfer rates using [URL] with my old router giving the higher rates expected from 300N over 144N.
SSID is not being broadcast from an e3200. I split the wireless networks and assigned a new name for the 5Ghz band. The broadcast SSID button is enabled for both networks. (2.4 & 5). The idea is I want to stream video on the 5Ghz band. Nothing seems to see it though, TV other PCs, etc.
I have dynamic IP address from my ISP.When I am away from my EA4500 router, can I get my router to email me or somehow notify me of the IP it's been assigned so that I can communicate with the network remotely?
I am having no end of issues with this router since the upgrade to CCC. I don't want to downgrade because the reason I purchased the router was for the hopeful addition of more apps later on and the CCC.
My router has now suddenly decided to no longer broadcast N signals. My 2.4ghz network is set for mixed and my 5ghz is set for N Only. They are both set to auto channel and WPA2 Personal security and have been working since I purchased the router on Sunday.
Last night it spontaneously rebooted and that was that.
Both laptops (with N adapters) are seeing the 2.4ghz network as 802.11g and my 300Mbps notebook adapter is seeing the 5ghz network as 802.11a. InSSIDer is showing that both networks are now broadcasting at a max of 54Mbps.
I have tried rebooting the router multiple times. I have also tried unplugging it for 60 seconds. I have also attempted to force the 2.4ghz to 20Mhz and a more optimal (unused) channel. That doesn't work. I tried setting the 5ghz network to wide (40mhz) with an optimal channel. Same deal. Still seeing it as 802.11a.
My belkin wireless dual band router just stopped broadcasting on the 2.4 band. The 5 band still worked (my wife's phone could still connect to it no problem).My cell is a motorola Razr maxx and only works on the 2.4. I have an app (wifi analyzer) that allows me to see what is happening with my network - specifically when i would try to connect to my network - my network name would be listed but as soon as I hit "connect" it would disappear. Only to come back into the list saying "MYNETWORK saved, secured WPA/WPA2". Every time I would try to connect same thing. Contemporaneously, I would check the network activity using wifi analyzer and could see that roughly each time I tried to connect to my network - it would drop off completely.Ok - after scouring the internet - it does seem that a wireless router can stop broadcasting on the 2.4 and still have the 5 band work. (btw - my pc is hardwired through the router and is not affected).So I bought a new Linksys 3500 dual band router. I installed it and it has worked fine....up until yesterday.Now I have the same problem. While my wife's phone still works on the 5 band it will not work on the 2.4. In fact nothing will work on the 2.4. Could I have just bought a crappy router?I'm not sure what pertinent info to list...Cell Stratosphere - works on 5 band not 2.4Cell Android razr maxx - will not connect on 2.4 (5 is not an option)Kindle - can not connect on 2.4Roku - can not connect on 2.4Tivo - can not connect on 2.4Older Linksys modem works with no problem.PC (sefl-built) running Windows 7 64 bit (w/ Norton) is not having any problems with connectivity - as it is hard-wired into the router.I've switched the 2.4 broadcast channel from 1 through 11. Nothing.I've cycled both the modem and the router about a dozen times - does not fix the issue.I have reset the router back to factory settings 3 times - no fixI am using WPA/WPA2 - but I have changed the router to run as unprotected - nothing changes.I've even out of desperation gone back and tried restoring my system to earlier restore points just to see if anything would happen. zilch.So did i just catch some bad luck by buying a faulty router?
This is my second E1000, the first one worked fine until the power supply flaked out and overheated. So I bought another E1000 and this one worked fine for about 6 months. Now it just quits broadcasting. It will work for a couple hours to 18 hours before it stops. I have to unplug it and wait 30 seconds, power up and it.
