Linksys Wireless Router :: Access Restrictions On WRT600N?
Oct 30, 2011
I'm having problems with the access restrictions feature on the WRT600N. I do have the latest firmware upgrade, which was released in 2008 I believe. Anyways whenever I totally block a PC from the internet either by MAC or by IP, it affects the internet on the rest of the house. Logins to sites do not work right. Logouts from do not work right. Different features of different sites will not work properly. There also will be a lag sometimes when entering the url for a new site. But as soon as I turn the access restriction off, everything goes immediately back to how it should be working.
What happen to my router linksys e1200, after i update the firmware to the latest version "Access Restrictions" is change to "Access Policy". how can i revert it back to "Access Restrictions" do i need to downgrade the firmware?
I have access restrictions set up for certain wireless devices in my home that the kids use to kick them off at 11 pm and keep them off all night. where I am running into a problem is I want to block these same devices from downloading anything without my permission my son downloads everything he sees, Comcat has already threatened to kick us off their service if we go over 250 gb bandwidth use in a month again. so I want to configure something in the router that will block all downloads for specific wireless devices. with the access restrictions I have set up I used the mac address not just the ip so they have no way around it I constantly monitor what is connected. I am using the stock firmware as well
I decided to limit some Internet time for the kids going off this router (which has been working great since set up) but my Access Restrictions tab is missing. I have an identical router at my work place, same version/firmware, same settings, but the one at work does have the tab.
I am trying to get a cell phone to have access to my LAN from 3am to 7am. I gave the policy a name, allowed access, checked everyday and the time 3a to 7a. Under edit list of PCs, I entered the MAC address of the phone, and I have also entered the MAC address of the phone on the wireless>edit mac filter list, though didn't know if I should.
I keep trying to set access restrictions for my wrt54g router for time. There is no 12 for time so I'm selecting 11:55 pm to 6am but I keep getting an error message of, "end time must be bigger then begin time." I get this no matter if I select 9pm, 10pm, etc.
I am using a WRT150N with firmware v1.00.5. I have a Linux setup with Squid connected to the network with the gateway 192.168.23.254. The WRT150N has a gateway of 192.168.23.1. The WRT150N is also connected to an Apple Base Station which serves as the Access Point for WiFi users.Squid limits access for IP addresses listed under the .254 gateway. But once I change my gateway to 23.1, everything is accessible. I want to block sites as well on the WRT150N. But every time I try to put a new Access Restriction, it doesn't work.
I want to set up access restrictions to one MAC address (my kid's machine) basing on week days. From Su to Th allow less access time while during Fr-Sa afternoons access time should be longer. The question is how to program it in router. I know I can set rules with "allow" and "disable" keyword, but I don't know rules preference. When I set (Su-Th 6-21) allowed access time then router automatically denies defined machine internet access outside this time range. The problem is in the power of thus calculated denying time. I want to allow more access time in weekend, so I hoped if I can simply add "Fr-Sa 6-22:30 allowed access time" rule. I hoped that router will regard explicitly set time over inexplicitly set time but it appears it is not so. What are their preferences/priorieties, iis it possible to stack more rules affecting one MAC address or it is so simple that the first rule "rulez"? Is it possible to set more than one time rule affecting the one machine?
I had a E1200, I read the articles from the support about the routers, I think the "access Restrictions" has more flexible to setup on for the parental control, after chated to cisco support person online, I was told that the E1200 v2 has this "access restrictions" function, and I wan convinced to purchase from them. I did. I got the E1200 v2 recently, however, after I installed the CD and found there is no "access restrictions" tab, instead the "access policy" is still there. by the way the firmware is 2.0.02 now. How to get the "access restrictions" from setup? I've chatted with cisco support person twice again, but nobody can fix the problem, one suggested to restart and reinstall the CD. I uninstalled the software, restarted the computer and reinstalled the CD. same problem, no tab of "access restrictions".
Recently switched from WEP to WPA2 on the router and let it run a few days. Everything was copacetic.
Then decided to implement the following access restrictions:
1 - Target MAC based, internet blocked from 9-11:55 PM (why won't it let you block from 9PM-7AM ;-( ), blocks son #1's laptop, Kindle
2 - Target MAC based, internet blocked from 10-11:55 PM, blocks son #2's Kindle
3 - Targets IP Address range based (192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.254), across all devices blocks several porn sites all the time
I can get on a play games online but when we start watching video with all 3 restrictions enabled, it will eventually disconnect (can take 1-5 minutes before it happens). Rebooting XBox usually reset connection, but it would happen again eventually. After disabling all restrictions, disconnects completely stopped.
Is it not possible to have Access Restrictions in place on a WR54G and still stream video?
I 'd like to use the access restrictions capabilities of the WRT610N v2. Unfortunely the "Access Restrictions" menu is missing in the admin GUI; I 've got all the others : "Set -up", "Wireless", "Security", Storage, Applications and Gaming, Administration and Status. I've checked the Firmware already and i'm using the very last one available on the cisco web site. I also noticed that I do not have the "Linksys by Cisco" text on the upper left corner as one can read on user guide but just "Cisco".
I have been looking into this router, I would like to know if I can enable Parental controls or access restrictions to block a MAC or IP address; from 03:00 AM - 06:00 AM ?Instead of Midnight to 6:00 am.My E4200 works just fine, Just would like to know if the EA6500 Can do that ?
I have a WRT600N dual band router and have only been able to connect to the 5Ghz when it's network mode was set to mixed. I also have a Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card. When setting the Network mode on my router to Wireless N-Only I am unable to connect to the network. I have been searching all over the internet for how to fix this, but none of the answers suit me. I have my network security set to WPA2 with an AES encryption, like people keep saying so I know that is not the problem. Others say that I need to set my wireless adapter to N-Only as well, but I have not been able to find anything in Google that shows me how this is done. The driver version for my adapter is 22.214.171.124 and is up to date according to Windows.
I have been using a Lenovo W510 laptop with an Intel wireless adapter (Intel(R) Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300 AGN). The download speed has been 15-18 mbps on my home network. I just bought a new Lenovo W520 with a Lenovo wireless adapter. The download speed is about 1 to 1.5 mbps. What changes should I make to the router settings so that it communicates properly with the Lenovo wireless adapter?
I have a Telus modem, that is hard wired to a siemens wireless router.The telus modem assigns addresses to the siemens router in 192.168.254.* address range.There are a lot of other siemens routers operating in my neighbourhood and I keep getting kicked off.So I want to connect my MacBook Pro wirlessly through the linksys WRT600N on the 5GHz band.I've disabled the 2.4Ghz band.
I have a WRT600N router. I have one PC that is connected to the router via a wired connection. I also have an iPad (3rd generation) that is connected to the router via a wireless connection. On my PC, I went to speedtest.net and determined that I am receiving like 20MB downloads via the wired connection. However, my iPad only gets approximately less than 2 MB download speeds. I have tried reseting the router and I do have what I believe to be the latest firmware update (Firmware Version: 1.01.36 build 4). I also receive the slow download speeds when I try connecting the other wireless devices. I assume my problem has to do with some sort of configuration setting found in the router configuration page (http://192.168.1.1/). The router is only a few feet away from my iPad so the signal strength is strong. I just don't understand why I'm receiving such slow wireless download speeds.
I cannot upload files through http (e-mail attachments, send images to Facebook, send file to virustotal.com) with Linksys WRT600N router. When I remove connection cable from router and place directly in a computer, everything works just fine. I am using last firmware upgrade.
I fought my ISP (frontier) for weeks trying to get their 7500 DSL/modem/router configured in bridge and working into the WRT600N. Finally gave up and put a new Engenius EVR100 behind the 7500 bridge and it came up fine in 10 mins. Now I would like to use my old WRT600N downstairs as a second router and run it in the range of the Engenius DHCP, with DHCP turned off in the WRT600N.
My question is this ... Do I set the WRT600N as a static IP address and use an address in the range issued by the EVR100?And, if so, what would the sub-net mask, default gateway and DNS numbers be? Also would the router address itself (lets say I use 192.168.0.120 from the EVR100 range) be different then the static IP address?
My DSL Modem connected right now to Linksys Model: WRT600N (Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router) to give a wireless internet access in my house. I have TWO spare Linksys Wireless Router (WRT350N-Wireless-N Gigabit Router) and (WRT54G2-Wireless-G Broadband Router) that I need to use to expand my wireless network at home.
How can i connect the two routers to became an access point or range expander to existing router. It is possible the two spare routers became an access pt or expander? How can i configure that? Cable configuration?
When the Wrt600N came out, it was said that the "Reserved" button would be enabled by a future firmware upgrade to support WiFi Protected Setup. Surely in the three or so years this has come to pass.Does anyone have a link to information on using WPS with the WRT600n?
I am using a linksys wrt600N with easylink advisor version 1.6.0042. I am trying to install a video camera and the instruction manual says under "known issues": LinkSys routers have a factory default setting in the firewall menu called "filter anonymous internet requests". If you want to access your camera from the internet you have to uncheck this option."I see this option in the WRT600N manual, but it references a software choice that I don't have.I have gone to the website and downloaded the latest compatible software version, and I still don't have the choice to uncheck this option.
I have the latest flash installed. I am making use of all the options available to this router. USB drive set up as a file server, both radio bands have devices which attach. All wifi security is wpa2 with a complex key string. Also have pc’s attached to all lan ports. I also have all the wireless devices registered on the mac address filter for access set to enable/allow. I have a total of 9 mac address in the list. One lan device is on the DMZ. One address is reserved. Not sure what other details you need.Router is used for online gaming, video streaming, and typical internet browsing.
The standard Verizon router doesn't have Wireless N capability, so I got the WRT600N (first floor) a while back and connected it to one of the ports on the Verizon router (basement). I have the wireless turned off on Verizon router. My problem is that anything connecting to the WRT600N has extremely intermittent connectivity.
Ok, so I reset the router but i still can't login to the setup using the factory password (admin/admin) (blank/admin) (admin/blank). Now I have an unencrypted network and no access to the setup... I even tried using the setup CD but it doesn't recognize the router.
