Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Cannot Open As An Admin
May 7, 2012
I need to get to my web admin page, but I cannot get into my router to do so.IE tells mt that there is a certifacte error, and then gives me the option of going in anyway.When I select that option, nothing happens, and the same IE warning page remains.I am plugged directly into an e-net port on the router, and it is a WRT160N.
I have the WRT160N router for 3.5 yrs and it's worked perfectly since installing it. About two weeks ago it began intermittently dropping cable connection. First few times I thought I could resolve it by unplugging/plugging router & modem so they can "re-syn" to the cable connection. That still works but now it occurs sometimes multiple times within a few minutes/hours and then won't happen again for an entire day/days. The other day I had connectivity but instead of the usual 5 bars I only had 3 while using my laptop in the same spot in the house as usual.
I was unable to access the web admin on my WRT160n v3 w/ latest firmware this morning. Reset config to defaults & was able to get in. Enabled HTTPS access & disabled HTTP access & was right back where I started; reset to defaults again & left both boxes checked. Can access via HTTP, but HTTPS requests get refused/reset.
The reason I needed access was that when I booted up my laptop this morning, my wireless card wasn't picking up an IP address via WIFI, only worked via ethernet, so I need to see what was going on there — several reboots of the router didn't fix, nor has it fixed the HTTPS access problem described above.
I have set up a second E4200 as an AP.Even though I’m getting a signal from it I can’t open the ADMIN page. Also, it’s NOT showing up on my main 4200 "DHCP client table'.I configured it as a static IP 192.168.1.145 during setup and still cannot get in. My ping to .145 comes back “timeout”!Since I’m getting a full signal from it, it must be working so why can’t I get in and why doesn't it show up?
I was having problems with the speed being between 30-58 kpbs when going through the WRT160N router, whether its hooked up wired or wireless, the speed with both was extremely slow and wouldnt fully open pager or would take dsl day slow. I hooked up straight to modem and I got 100+ kpbs so I figured its not my ISP, so I read that upgrading my firmware might make it faster, so I upgraded and hit and held the reset button for 30 secs like it recommended but now the 192.168.1.1 wont open, I get a message saying it cant open this page
confirm if the highest speed I can get over WiFi with WRT160N v3 is actually 270 Mbps (and not 300 Mbps as advertised), And there's one more thing - is it normal to have Signal: -51; Noise: -93, SNR: 43, Signal quality 53% if I am only 2 meters far from a router? TX power is set to 28.
I just got a WRV 210 wireless router (three of them actually, planning to set up a VPN). But I can't set the admin password. I've tried 4 times, and every time, i've got to hold the reset button to reset to factory settings in order to access the management pages! I enter the new password in both fields, and then click to save the settings. It restarts. Then i try to log in - and it doesn't accept the new password. It doesn't accept the default password. I've tried with admin/(new password) and (new password)/(new password), and admin/admin. None of them work, forcing me to reset router to factory settings. I've tried a password composed of 6 letters followed by a . Thinking that maybe the . was throwing it off, I tried 6 letters followed by 3 numbers. That doesn't work either. I've updated to firmware version 184.108.40.206. No luck.
I don't have to completely reset my router as I have a ton of configs on it. Anyway, recently for some reason, I lost all access to my admin page. Cisco Connect also cannot find the router. Funny thing is that all of my wireless profiles work just fine. Meaning all of the computers in my home connect to the internet just fine using the router. Both the guest access and WPA connected machines.[url]...
I recently tried to edit settings on my E3200 and was unable to get to the page. I typed in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, made sure no proxies were enabled and tried on wired and wireless computers and all the times it said "page could not be displayed" i haven't not reset with the button on the back. I also did an map scan of the router and this is what came up
Interesting ports on 192.168.1.1: Not shown: 65531 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 139/tcp open netbios-ssn 443/tcp open https 445/tcp open microsoft-ds 1780/tcp open unknown
As I've seen in my Linksys' admin panel, I have a log option (Administration/Log). So if I enabled it i can check which sites was browsed in my home network?And the second question: if Linksys can store the browsed sites history and if I will use a VPN connection on my PC or iPhone (not router!) the logs will be still look like before setting-up VPN on PC? So like: [URL] not like: [URL]?
I took one and a half hours to get everything set up, I've got a PPoE connection, my problem is that ever since I entered the administration interface each and every page takes 2-5 minutes to load, it's absurdly slow, also, when trying to setup my WiFi, it timed out several times, I updated the router to the latest firmware, the same issue, it took me 4-5 retries to get WiFi set up properly. Sometimes navigating from page to page is quicker, 30-40seconds, but still those are some big times.
Is this normal behavior or do I have a hardware problem and I need to take it back and request a new one?
Mention: I am wired from a laptop, all the lights are blue, blinking nicely.
I have an E1000 linksys router. I am trying to determine the admin password. I have looked at seeral entries regarding this. I do not have CICSO connect installed. Not sure why. The router works fine. I have the CD that came with the router. I have also downloaded current version of connect software. Both of them want to config the router. The first item asked for is the admin password. I know I press reset button. I am trying to retrieve password without doing that.
I have a wrt160n v3. This is the 3rd one - both the first 2 were defective. I have spent approximately 8 hours troubleshooting the other 2 only to be told they're defective. So, I got a new one. Now, this one keeps cutting in and out. I want as my iPhone constantly switches from 3G to wifi on and over every minute. It really ticks me off! What can I do to fix this? This is a different issue than the original one (very slow) and 2nd (no signal). It's disappointing for a $90 router to do this. I also see the wireless icon on the router flash.
turning my wireless back on. Some how in attempting to create a shared file between my pc and my wife's Mac the wireless has been disabled. I have tried resetting the device several times following the instructions on line however I still can not get the wireless to re activate. I tried reverse directions from the posts on how to turn off the wireless but still no luck. I tried restoring the computer to a later date?
I'm having an issue getting my tv to start connecting again to the wireless router.Have tried pin setup (timed out & didn't connect...attempted at least 10 times in this fashion)Have tried entering the password (router seems to refuse the connection to the tv)About a month ago, I was in the Network Magic Map & it looked like one of the laptops had been cloned, so I removed it from the network.
I have a WRT160N v3 Linksys Router and it keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting. It only disconnects wirelessly. LAN still works fine.I have tried a lot of different methods to solve this issue, but none seem to work.I am very dissappointed in the quality of the product. It has done this every since it was bought. I personally would have sent it in for repairs, but others in my household would not have agreed to that.
Just tried to register my WRT160N V2 and when I tried firstly there is no option for the version 2 model and secondly it says my serial No is incorrect when I have tried it three times and have checked it thoroughly.
I have two PC's hardwired to this router that are working okay (although performance has been choppy lately). The past 4 days however, when I try to connect wirelessly I get connections that are repeatedly dropped. I am in the Settings section of my iPad 2 and it keeps rapidly switching between "connected" and "not connected". Firmware is up to date.
Desktop Xp 3 and connected printer, Comcast cable, WRT160N, wireless laptop w/ Xp 3. Printer is only parallel, and is connected to desktop. How to setup all and print wirelessly from laptop through WRT160N to printer on desktop?
I have been through three chat sessions on this without resolution and support tells me just to factory reset. After some time (weeks) after a successful local login to the admin page subsequent attempt to login just hang. After entering the admin password the page changes and says "Waiting" under revolving circles. It will sit there for over 1 hour. I have tried IE, chrome and firefox on Windows 7 and Windows 8 on three different machines and it behaves the same. Of course I have to go through this same process with the support people every time and every time they come to the conclusion that I have to do a factory reset. But so far Linksys denies that there is a defect.
I tried all methods: Cisco Connect (on Vista), http and https, but none works. However, the router seems function correctly. My laptop can acquire DHCP address and browse via the router. But I just cannot connect to the router to perform Admin tasks.Problem: when I launch CiscoConnect: the GUI shows "Cannot access your router", even though I am using the router to browse the net wirelessly and wirely. Using browser to navigate to http://192.168.1.1 and https://192.168.1.1 also give me cannot access error!
I have manually configured the E2000 and set the admin password. When I was trying to log back in, I could not. I reset and reconfigured and set the password again. I still could not log in using "admin" and the password I set up. I thought I was losing my mind. Just on a hunch, I used the SSID name instead of "admin", then entered the password that worked. I am able to login, but I need the username to be admin, not the SSID. Has anyine else had this issue? Any way to change the administrator name back to admin??
Before, I can access admin panel of router via 192.168.1.1 on any computer, be it wired or wireless.This time, I can't anymore.This time, I can only access admin panel on 1 computer only. The computer in which it's directly connected to the router, wired. All other computers, connected to a switch, which the switch is also connected to router, can no longer access admin panel.I can still open 192.168.1.1 with a username/password prompt but I can't log in. It's like it's always wrong password. Same with accessing from laptop (wireless).Before, I can access admin panel from any computer (wired), even from laptop (wireless). There are times that I have to restart router in order to fix my internet connection. Only this time, I have to access it from the computer that's directly connected to router (wired).How do I revert it back so that all computers will be able to connect to admin panel of router?I have just finished upgrading firmware from 1.0.05 to 1.0.06 but I still have the same problem.
