Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs - Shared Hardwired Printer Dropped When Accessed By Wifi Device?

Jul 5, 2011

Win7, wrt54gs,
It works sometimes.  I imagine it has a noise problem since sharing files works, internet works.  I cannot remember how to change channels on this router to save my life, though.  What is special about sharing a printer?

So my desktop is wired to my WRT54GS v7 router, which is connected to a DSL modem. The desktop has full connection and gets Internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs - Extend Wifi / Configure Devices For Ssid

Feb 16, 2012

I have two WRT54GS routers. I want to extend my WiFi from the router connected to my upstream in the office to a second router in the living room. I want devices configured for the SSID and passphrase of my current WiFi (which is find in the office) to work seamlessly in the living room. I understand I can do this by running a cable and configuring router 2 as a client of router 1 with router 2 exposing the same SSID and passthrase on a different channel.
But I really don't want to run a cable.There is a point where a client can see router 1 where an AP would cover the living room.
Can I put router 2 at that point, have it connect wirelessly as a client to router 1, and have it expose as an AP using the same SSID and passphrase? Can this be done without wiring the router?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Can't Be Accessed By Other Computers Unless Change SSID Name

Oct 15, 2011

Been using the WRT160N for a while now and it works great except for one issue. Every few weeks the wireless can't be accessed by the other computers unless I change the SSID name. It was frustrating to figure out, but simply changing the name makes it accessible again.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT610N Network Drive Can't Be Accessed By Any Computer

Feb 27, 2013

I have a WRT610N v2 with current firmware.  The hard drive is a Western Digital Elements formatted to NTFS and already has music and photos so that other computers in the house can view them. This setup was done awhile back, maybe even a year ago.
Anyway, I can map the network drive and see everything there, but then after awhile (minutes - maybe 10) of idle time, the network drive can't be accessed by any computer, either as the mapped drive (W or by clicking the WRT610N in the network tree. It's like it goes to sleep and can't be awakened by activity.
I have searched the forums here and at WD but haven't found a solution or even this exact problem.  I did find a utility on the WD site that is supposed to fix/eliminate the short idle time, but it didn't seem to work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs Wifi Download Speed 1/3 Of Wired Speed

Dec 28, 2010

I just discovered that my wireless download speeds are 5Mbps, compared to 16Mbps if my laptop is connected directly to the modem or wired through the router.  Uploads are 2Mbps either way.  I have a WRT54GS v.6 with firmware version v1.52.8 which I updated today, completed by setting factory default through the router webpage after I discovered this discrepancy.  The firmware update did not improve the download speed appreciably, if at all.Should the wireless connection be that much slower than the wired connection through the router?  If not, what sort of issues could I be having to account for this?
I did just replace my modem when I discovered I was having erratic speedtests and that corrected that problem.  That is when I became aware of the wireless issue, so not sure how long that has been the case.  I have Charter's 16/2 HSI, living in a sparsely populated area with solid internet service.  There is no external nor internal interference on this 2.4Ghz band.

Linksys Wireless Router :: New E2500 Port Light For Wifi Printer Not On?

Aug 18, 2011

I have just upgraded my Linksys router from an older one to the E-2500 about a week ago.  Everything is working great on my wired desktop and 3 wireless laptops except the printer will no longer work from any of the computers.  I've checked the printer wireless settings and they are correct (ssid and password) and it says it's connected to the wlan.  Each of the computers shows the printer is active and set to default BUT the port light on the back of the new router is not on. I have changed cables and still no light, the printer is set up for sharing and it did work a couple days ago but port light was on then.

I have not added anything that wasn't hooked up on my old router, I"m just trying to get what I had on the old router to work on the new one. Everytime I call support, they have me change something that messes up what a previous agent had me do. Now they want me to pay for a direct connection so they can upgrade my router firmware...they didn't even ask what version I already had which happen to be the same version that is available on [URL] so if I had agreed, I would have paid for nothing. I had already paid $29.99 for additional 14 day support on my old router only to find out I needed a new one.

I've been using Linksys routers for quite awhile but I'm just about ready to change brands. I would really like to give this E-2500 a chance.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea4500 - One Device Not Connecting To Wifi Network

Feb 3, 2013

I just purchased a Linksys EA 4500.I set up the wifi properly, with laptops, tablets, smartphones and printer. The wifi network worked fine for a couple of days.But now one of the laptop "refuses" to see the Linksys wifi network. The other devices are still connected and running regularly.
The notebook that does not connect anymore is an ACER 5740DG with an Atheros Network adapter and Windows 7 installed. This notebook is otherwise running fine.At the beginning it was connecting ok and we never had any problem at all with the previous router Belkin_N+_7991AC, that I changed just for speed.
Now the Linksys network is simply not visible to such notebook in the "Available Connections List" that I get clicking on the WiFi icon in the bottom right, while a number of other wifi networks (not mine) are clearly visible. Of course I restarted the notebook properly. For one time I got the visibility of the Linksys, I entered the password and then it was not possible to see the network anymore.No error message from Smart WiFi software.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea6500 - Smart Wifi Device List Incorrect

Feb 27, 2013

The smart wi-fi app Device List indicates Local Network = 0 (that's incorrect) and Guest Network = 0 (that's correct). When i click Connected Devices for My Network, i see a list of devices but everything indicates 'Offline' and that of course is incorrect.How can i upgrade this software? I recently installed EA6500 and due to being slow, it was recommended to set back to factory default. That process did no go well, so i hope it is not necessary again. This router is not any better then the wrt320N so i am disappointed.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3200 / Replacing Only Wired Device In Wifi Network

Jan 15, 2012

In the next month or so I plan to replace my old desktop PC. It is currently connected to a Linsys E3200 wireless router. I have many other wireless devices also running off the E3200, but my PC is the only wired device connected to it. When I replace the wired PC do I simply switch the new one in with the existing ethernet connection (I'm sure it is not that simple) or do I have to start over again recreating my entire etc.. ? If so what is the process to start over ? Do I have to reset something on the router, reload cisco connect, create a new network name?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Download Speed When Hardwired To E4200?

Apr 14, 2012

Im trying to optimize my E4200 settings and Ive noted that ping and download speeds are extremely slow for the internet service I signed up for. Ping speeds are consistently more than 1000ms and dowload speeds typically are less than 3Mbps. These are for both wireless and wired connections to the E4200 router.
When I disconnect the router and hardwire my laptop directly to the the modem, ping speeds are less than 100ms and download speeds are 20Mbps.
Simply put, webpage loading is at a snails pace with wireless and wired connection the router, but blazing fast when hardwired directly to the modem.
On a seperate issue, the iMac I have is also **bleep** slow even when hardwired directly to the modem. Is there an obvious router setting Im screwing up?  Router is updated with the latest software.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea4500 - Device In Smart Wifi Is Listed With Two Multiple Apple

Jan 2, 2013

I am using a EA4500 and use Linksys Smart Wi-Fi to manage the device. In the household we have multiple Apple i devices. Somehow the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi combined two separte i devices (iPhone 5 and a 4th generation iTouch) to one user.The devices actually have different names, but the Smart Wi-Fi is combining them into one device. So I can't use Parental Controls on one of the devices.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea3500 Smart Wifi Device List Not Finding Windows

Feb 16, 2013

I recently upgraded my Wi-Fi router to an EA3500 and am controlling it using Smart Wi-Fi running on a wired Windows 7 machine.So far, I have been able to add devices to the network without issue and each of those connections works fine.  All, except my TV, have been Windows 7 based machines.  Smart Wi-Fi Device List has been able to "see" each device and I have been able to add them to that list as well.
I am attempting to add a Windows 8 desktop computer to the network which is using a external USB wireless adapter.  That computer can see and connect to the network through the EA3500 and the connection seems to work fine.  The only issue is that its adapter does not show up in the Device List.

1)  Does the Device List do anything else besides showing a list of devices I chosen to add to my network?
2) How do I get my Windows 8 wireless adapter to show up in the Device List?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G2 - Connect Ethernet Switch (for Hardwired Connections)?

Dec 29, 2011

In my main office, I have a cable modem which is connected to my main E4200 router. All of my equipment (except my Ooma) is served by the E4200. The E4200 broadcasts a wireless network.In my basement, I have a Wii / entertainment center. The E4200 signal from upstairs isn't strong enough to stream video.
I bought the WET610N and have successfully set it up to interact with the E4200 wirelss network. I can hardwire my laptop to the WET610N and verify the internet works greatHowever, the Wii must connect over wireless. I have other equipment in the basement which would benefit from an internet connection. So, I want to A) connect the ESXS88W 10/100 8-port workgroup switch I have to the WET610N *AND* also broadcast a wireless signal in my basement (assuming the wireless network I see in the basement is the same "old" one from upstairs which has not benefited from the WET610N).
How can I set up my WRT54G2 to broadcast a wireless signal in the basement so that it leverages the E4200 signal served by the WET610N, while also having the workgroup switch offer hardwired connections to my other equipment (like Dish Network receiver)? It doesn't seem to work by just plugging the WRT54G2 into the workgroup switch.

TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless :: Accessing WR1043ND Shared Storage With Android Device

Jan 7, 2013

Region : NewZealand
Model : TL-WR1043ND
Hardware Version : V1
Firmware Version : 3.13.12 Build 120405 Rel.33996n

I've plugged in a USB flash drive and enabled shared storage on my TL-WR1043ND router. With "Access shared storage with password" unticked, I can access the share using both my Windows 7 Laptop and Motorola Defy+ (with ES File explorer) and successfully play any Music off of the network share using the Android App, ES File explorer.

If I enable "Access shared storage with password" and attempt to log in using any of the user accounts I've set up on the device, I will be able to access the shares using the credentials on my Windows 7 Machine, but not with my Motorola Defy+, instead I will simply receive "Login failure". I'm Picking it has something to do with the network share type?

Linksys WR-110 Router - Hardwired / Slows Down / Needs Reboot

Feb 12, 2013

I have a Linksys WR-110 wireless router that has been acting up lately. I have 10mbps cable internet and have my desktop computer hardwired to the router. I notice that after a few days the download speed gets down to the 2mbps range. Verified by { URL}. If you do a hard boot (unplug for 30 seconds) it will go back to 10mbps speed again. But it seems after a few days it slows own again.

I always run speed test to verify, and it always runs back up at advertised speeds once i hard boot.

Why would this be happening?
