Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Best Inputs For Setting Up 2 Xbox360
Feb 9, 2012
I have a new E4200 on the way to replace my lackluster dlg-4500 and I need to find out the best settings and inputs for setting up 2 xbox360(both wired), and a PS3(wired) as well as my other wireless toys. What I want to find out are the settings that will make the router run the best.
I recently wanted to try using the Google public DNS servers on my home network. I have a Cisco E4200 router.On the router's administration page, I set Static DNS 1 to 220.127.116.11 and Static DNS 2 to 18.104.22.168 and saved the settings.Even after rebooting the router, the Setup page shows the Google DNS addresses listed above, but the Status page shows 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 as being the DNS servers its using.
I am to play an online game called, "Super Street Fighter: Arcade Edition" and I am constantly getting disconnected. Currently my router is set to DHCP and I read and heard from other sources that a static IP is the way to go but I can't seem to get it setup when I follow youtube videos or read how-to guides.Which is the best choice for a solid connection? Port forward the ports need to play the game or setup a static ip or some sort of combination of both? How to setup a static IP with the linksys e4200? I also have a linksys repeater to boost the signal strength. Its the Linksys RE1000 repeater.Also, if you have any other suggestions that might be better such as leaving my router on DHCP and making changes somewhere else in the router configuration page (192.168.1.1).
I'm moving into a new house. I've purchased the E4200 and the WET610N so I can connect between the main house and the carriage house which will be my office. Carriage house is 60' away from the main house. I want to place the E4200 in the main house and will send it the broadband cable signal from the cable modem. I'll wire ethernet directly from the E4200 to the DVR for DirecTV and will use another output to distribute to other computers in the main house via ethernet switch. I will place the WET610N in the carriage house and want to take to output from the WET610N into wired ethernet switch(es) there for access to the broadband from the house.
I've been playing around with my E4200 but cannot find the right combination of settings. My problem: I bought the router for cable internet that never happened. In the meantime I am accessing the web using a 3G dongle. Hoewever, while connected to the router (wired or wireless), all the PC's in my home refuses to access the 3G internet - it is as if it wants to use the E4200 to access the net, no matter what. So every time I want to access the internet, I have to disconnect the PC from the home network, and connect with the 3G on that particulat PC. (I have three PC's at home, 1 wired and two wireless). If I set the E4200 to bridge mode, I struggle to find a logical IP address, since I would ideally like to run the network at 192.168.1.X. How do I set the E4200 to allow a home network to be established without having to disconnect everytime I use the 3G on a PC? Also, it seems that if the router doesn't handle the DHCP duties, win7 by default makes the network public, which complicates sharing a lot...
I have the Linksys/Cisco router E4200. My question is setting up parental control features as specified in [URL] - specifically the blocking of sites based on certain keywords and/or blocking sites based on age groups (child/teen). I do not see this capability in my Cisco Connect software. Is this feature available for E4200 v1? If so, how can I obtain the software?
I just bought a Linksys E4200 from bestbuy tonight, mostly for the feature of plugging my hard drive into it to use it as a media server, and being able to read & write to it from any computer on my network. I have searched for hours on end trying to fix my problem. I login to my router (at 192.168.1.1), I go to the storage tab, I then click the "Create Share" button next to my WD hard drive in the list and nothing happens. Ive tried this on four different computers, and three different browsers now to no avail.
Some random information: Computer: Dell XPS 420 Router: Linksys E4200 Hard Drive: WD 1TB
I recently purchased a new router (WRT54G Ver.6) and the initial setup went well. however, when I try to connect my xbox 360 to this network, the DNS does not resolve and it fails every time. what should I do?
I've been viewing some videos streamed through the EA6500 from a Qnap 419p II NAS, and several video files are playing back extremely choppy.I can confirm that the video files play fine on the Xbox360 using a USB key and have also previously streamed these videos without any problems using a Belkin Wireless Pre-N router (that I upgraded from) streamed from the same NAS.I've attempted to configure the Media Prioritization feature, but haven't noticed any different results. I have also adjusted other various settings that haven't affected the playback in any way.
My only guess is that some of the files are encoded in a format that the router is struggling with - the video files are not HD videos, and their bitrates are generally quite low - if my old Belkin router can do it, the EA6500 shouldn't have any problems either.
I have a tv with HDMI and RCA inputs. All I want is to be able to connect my laptop display to the tv without any wires at full HD Resolution. Also, be able to use the 'extend desktop' functionality so that I can continue doing my stuff on my laptop and play whatever on the tv screen (the way I can when I connect my laptop to tv using HDMI).Secondary requirements To be able to connect my iPad and my Samsung Galaxy S2?
I am using a HP laptop and its wireless connection is coming from my schools Wireless service which requires a ID and password each time you connect. I would like to funnel this wireless connection to my xbox 360 via a ethernet cord.Ive researched this a bit and found plenty guides but nothing has worked for me. I saw this in a previous post"Bridging two network connections:1. Make sure the secondary connection has DHCP enabled.. Open the Network Connections folder from the Start Menu, Settings.3. Select the first connection to be used in the bridge and highlight it by left clicking on it.4. Holding the Ctrl key, select the second connection to be used in the bridge by left clicking on it.5. Right click on one of the two highlighted connections and select Bridge Connections."
I would like to know how to setup QOS on the linksys EA6500 wireless router. I know about the media prioritization settings, however, thats not enough for me. I would like to setup upload and download speed limits for certain devices on my network, like, say 300kbps download for a certain device at all times.
I have a DPC3825 from Shaw Cable in Canada. I'd like to use my Airport Extreme as a repeater using WDS. I've clicked the checkbox for "Allow wireless signal to be repeated by a repeater" and entered my Airport's MAC Address, but my Airport Base station doesn't see it as a WDS Peer.
I have a dell dimension E521 with the 810 printer using windows Xp. I am trying to connect the printer for faxing but I am completely lost. I am using a linksys e4200 router with a linksys cm100 cable modem. How to connect these units so it is possible to send a fax online? I cannot find a link for a setup poster and there are no images in the owners manual on how to do this.
I have a recurring issue with my e4200v1. My wired and wireless connections work fine, but I can't get to the administration website. I have https only set up, and after I get thru the 'certificate error' screen, I get an error that says web page is unavailable. Firfefox tells me that the connection was lost - error 101.I have tried wired and wireless, multiple computers, multiple browsers. I even turned the firewall off on one computer (or I think I did anyway).The only way I know how to fix it is by completely resetting then setting up the router all over again.
Upgraded from WRT610N to E4200. Since upgrading to latest firmware the wan just disappears both 5 and 2.5 Ghz bands. Happened with older firmware but not as often. Using it in briged mode. When this happens I can't even get to the management page with a lan connected pc. Have to do a hard reboot to get it to respond again. This is unacceptable for a router at this price point.
I currently have my wired cable internet hooked into my wrt310n. I have that hooked into a linksys 10/100 ef3124 switch. From there, I have cat5 run to the back of my house, where the wireless signal is weakest. I've got an E2000 router and would like to hook that in at the back of the house. What settings do I need to make in order to set up a completely new wireless network in the back of the house?
My house is a little too big for my WRT160N v3 to be able to get to every room, so i was wondering if i could set up my old WRH54G as a repeater to get that extra distance to get those last room on the network? if so how to set up the connection?
I have EA4500 router that connects a couple of desktops in one room. I am having to setup another room for gaming for which I have another EA4500 router. I want to setup the second EA4500 uplink(accesspoint) as the first EA4500. I dont find any interface to do it. I am able to do it wired(by connecting the both the routers through LAN ports). but I dont want to run cable across the house. know if it is possible with another firmware. Or should I return this new EA4500 and buy another router?
My channel width is Channel Width is 40 mhz only, and my channel is Auto DFS?These seem like good settings?My macbook air sometimes see's my 5ghz wireless SID, and sometimes it connects to it, but i still have no internet access for some reason
I do have a problem setting up the above mentioned router with my French Internet/TV provider.
The French Internet/TV access is provided through, what they call "Freebox". I have the v6 version, which exists of 2 parts, a server and a player. The server is equiped with 4 Ethernet ports and has a build-in NAS of 250 GB for storing and accessible for everybody on out home network. The server is connected via Ethernet to the player, which in turn is connected via hdmi to my TV.
In order to extend my network, I used an old Belkin 54g Wi-Fi router without a problem. Since the wi-fi died on the Belkin, I replaced it by the E3200.
I also want to use the wireless capabilities of the E3200 in our living room.
Internet access, through cable and/or Wi-Fi works without a problem with this setup. The only problem is: I don't have access to the TV channels. I am getting a popup on my TV saying that the Ethernet cable is disconnected! The cable is fine since it works with my Belkin.
The configuration is the following: ADSL cable to the Freebox server => port 1 connected to port 1 of the E3200 via a crossover cable => port 2 of the E3200 connected via a straight cable to the freebox player => hdmi cable between player and TV
Asking around, it seems that the Freebox server is using an encrypted VLAN100 connection to the player for TV channels. The problem must be there. how to setup a port - if possible - to handle the TV flux. I know a bit about hardware what concenrs pc's, but my knowledge about networking and addressing ports is rather poor.
What I did so far is the following: Since the Freebox server has its IP set at 192.168.0.254, I setup my E3200 at 192.168.0.5 with sub mask 255.255.255.0 and disabled DHCP. As I said before, it works for internet and connecting laptops through the router ports. But my knowledge stops there.
What I would like to know if it is possible, setting up/directing one port in a VLAN mode in order to get access to my TV channels and leave the other ports for normal internet access. Just a small tuto with an example would do.
I recently purchased an EA6500 router to replace the crappy Westell 7550 AT&T provided me with. The 7550 was easily hooked up with two cords: the Ethernet cord into the computer and the Internet/data cable hooked into the DSL filter. I thought the EA6500 would have an easy installation, but it has not gone so smoothly. I hypothesize it's one of two problems - either the Internet/data cable is incompatible with the EA6500 (the cable works; I've re-tested it on the 7550), or it is because all instructions mention plugging the Internet/data cable into a modem's port while I do not have a modem. My Internet comes from a DSL filter attached to a telephone jack in the wall.
I bought the EA6500 yesterday and tried setting it up with the CD that came with it and it tells me ( YOUR COMPUTER DOES NOT HAVE NETWORKING CAPABILITY ) and will not install. I have the capability for networking because I have a network. I was able to set the router up but not with the software on the CD. I have tried a number of times and still get the same message and when I click on view details this is what I get .I have a network adapter and it works just fine.
I just moved and my set up disc for my WRT54GS2V1 is in some box in some abyss at this point. My network is not secure and I want to secure it. My linksys also runs my cable. How do I make my network secure? I have Vista (not sure that matters) and a PC. I tried to follow some instructions here but I typed in IP config in my top bar and didn't get any local address..
I have a 6 month old Cisco e-4200 router that is updated to the latest firmware, connected to a Motorola surfboard modem on Sudden-link in Midland, TX.
I previously used this exact same setup on Cox Cable in Wichita, KS with no problems. Upon setting it up down here I cannot get the router to pickup an IP address. I have Power-cycled everything multiple times, did a complete reset and re-installation of the router software and still no luck. The Sudden-link techs have no idea what is wrong. They said that the modems signal is strong and everything should be working.
Actually I did get it to work once for a couple of days, however when redoing the surround sound system I had to unhook the cable line and it quit working and I haven't gotten it to work again since. I have tried unhooking everything. Turning it all off. Waiting for 5+minutes, and then reconnecting in order: First the modem, then an ethernet cable to the computer which will usually work. But as soon as I unplug the cable from the computer and plug it into the router it stops working.
