Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT150N Access Restrictions Not Working
Apr 3, 2011
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 have WRT150N, with firmware version 1.01.9 and I can not get the internet access policy to work.Here are my settings: PC list is configured through IP range as follows:Even if I deny internet access completely, I can still access the internet.
Up until about midnight tonight, my router, which has been plugged in to my cable modem, has been working fine for years, both wired and wirelessly. Suddenly, however, I went to log on to my desktop PC (wired connection; Windows 7), and I had no network connection. ipconfig indicated "media disconnected." My cable-based phone service (VOIP) is still working fine at this time.
First attempt - unplug router, wait 15 seconds, plug it back in. Still no good, though my network sharing center indicated that the network connection was appearing/disappearing every few seconds, never actually getting "internet" connectivity.
Second attempt - attempted to use a WIFI-based device (iPad), which could not see my home network by name at all.
Third attempt - reset both the cable modem and the router, bringing the cable modem up FIRST. Same results as the first attempt.
Fourth attempt - plug the wired PC directly into the cable modem - this worked fine and is how I am submitting this post as I type. So the cable modem is working properly.
Fifth attempt - look up the information on how to reset the router to factory defaults. Used a paperclip to depress the reset button for 10- and on a subsequent attempt, 30-seconds (no obvious "reset" blink pattern was observed). Plug PC back in to router. PC would not obtain any DHCP-based IP address and the network sharing center was still behaving as in the first attempt.
Sixth attempt - disconnect the cable modem uplink and see if I could get the local network functioning. Now I noticed that the LED patterns on the router were behaving as:
- Power and my PC's slot number lit - All lights lit - All lights off - Power and my PC's slot number lit - etc
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'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.
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 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'm trying to setup Xbox live for my Xbox 360. I have the WRT150N wireless router and just got the wireless adapter that plugs into the 360. It said the adapter couldnt pick up the signal then i realized i needed to enter the WPA key from my wireless router. I checked the information on the router and it only gives me the serial number and MAC address. How I can find out what the WPA key is for the router??
I have a wrt150N that I am trying to determine whether it's dead or not. I cannot connect to it directly, even if I plug my laptop directly into the Router. Pressing the Reset button does nothing, the lights don't even flash?If I change my Ethernet cable it does represent which port I'm using but I can't ping 192.168.1.1 either? I want to try and flash the bios but A: there's no file to download for this model and B: I presume I need to be able to connect in order to do the flash?
I am currently at a friends house attempting to fix a situation he is having with his' wireless router, it is a Linksys WRT150n.Connection to the internet is possible via ethernet connectivity, however wireless is another story, devices can see the network but cannot connect to it, i have disabled the security key from the network to see if it was a simple password incorrection but still no dice.The current basic wireless settings have network mode set to mixed, and radio band, wide and standard channels set to auto, all other settings in the advanced tab are set to their default values.
I have the wireless-n wrt150n router. I have it wired to my computer and have it wirelessly connected to my ps3. But for some reason there is another unnamed device listed under My Network. My network was not secure before, but I changed it to secure when I noticed the unnamed device. How do I remove that unnamed device from my network?
In my home I have a cable modem wired to a links wireless router a wrt 300n in my office (only hardwired used in there) and I do not get such good distance to my back bedrooms with my laptop. I have run a Ethernet cable dead center of the house for my sat receiver that is connected and wired to the 300wrt. Here is my question can I use the 150 like a hub or switch at the office connected to the cable modem and use the wrt300n router so that I get wireless on that side of the house. Or in reading here I see I can maybe use a bridge. I do have a older Linksys wrt150n sitting in a box.I have read until my eyes are almost bleeding and am not sure. How I can get a better signal on the other side of the house.
I can get regarding using the Collobos Fingerprint software through my WRT150N router. I'm using Windows XP SP3 and immediatly after installing (which went extreamy well) it immediatly found and listed all of my home network printers. All of the wired and wireless windows based systems in my house can see and print to the printers without any problem. However, getting ANY of my apple devices (iPad, iPhone etc ) to print will not even show them as listed on the device when I select print on the devices. Collobos says that I have to make sure that Ports UDP 5353 doe Bonjour and TCP 6361 for FingerPrint need to be open both ways for it to work, I have no problem getting into the router settings and have set them up as stated above in Port Range Triggering and enabled. Also made sure Filter Multicast was not check marked in Security. Unfortunatly, that doesn't seem to work as I had hoped.
