Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N - Internet Files Blocking Access To Router?

Aug 9, 2012

 We have a home use WRT160N router linked to a PC desktop and two wireless laptops, Yesterday bought a new I-Phone, but could not link to my network (entered the security key many times). I accidentally connected to computer fix it firm that linked to my PC and wanted a large sum to fix the problem which he said was due to large number of temp?? internet files and once removed he would change the IP address of the desktop computer? Is this diagnosis logical and can I do it on my own. The router is definetely working - both laptops access the internet and I was recently able to hook up a Samsung Blu-Ray player using the same security code I used for the I-Phone.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V2 Blocking 1 Client?

May 28, 2012

I've had this router for years. I have 2 servers always on, 1 computer with skype, and a 2nd linux machine with ports SSH, bittorrent, and SFTP open. Nearly all the port forwards are assigned to support this.
 
I got a brand new desktop with lots of CPU/Ram and was using it for development. The network card kept "going out" I would be online and all of a sudden no connections would go out from it.As I tested and diagnosed it I found it still got and held a valid IP, received DNS, but no HTTP or FTP connections would work externally. If I tried to HTTP or FTP to any computer locally on the network it would work fine. But try to access the internet and it was nothing. Restaring the machine would solve it but only for a while, usually run normally for 10-15 minutes then lose network again.. re-installed the drivers, the OS, but the problem remained. I shelfed the unit figuring it was an internal problem with the desktop since it was the only machine.Recently I got a refurbished laptop. to my surprise, it began doing the same thing as soon as I used it! exact same symptoms. So I pulled the old desktop out and it runs completely fine now! the problem has 'transfered'  from the desktop to the laptop so I now believe its the router. The router does it to both wired and wireless devices, and seems to target one device at a time to be bitchy to. Allows them to run for a while and then blocks all outgoing port 80/443/21 from that device.
 
Firmware Version: v2.0.03 Because of DNS issues with the modem the static DNS is transfered directly to my service providers DNS machine NAT enabled, all other advanced routing disabledSPI is onall Internet filters are on, all Web filters are off on FirewallVPN functions disabledAccess Restrictions are offAll Single Port Forwarding slots are directed to  2 machines (which have no problems)No port range triggeringno DMZ or priorities set on QoS
 
Everything that I know to check for (security, filters, restrictions) are showing errors or something that might cause this. I believe it may be related to the IP expiring, and when the IP renews the router stops permitting its traffic outbound.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Firmware 1.0.02 Blocking VPN Access?

Aug 6, 2011

I cannot connect to my company’s VPN after installing the current firmware (FW_E4200_1.0.02.013_US_20110524) on my E4200 router. Version 1.0.01 was on the router when I received it, and it worked without issues. As soon as I upgraded version 02, I could not initialize a VPN connection. When I try to start a VPN session, I get a "page not found" error when attempting to initiate SSL VPN service using a Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway. VPN pass through is enabled for all protocols in the e4200’s setup. As soon as I revert to firmware 01, everything works fine again.
 
I did a fresh download and re-flashed the 02 firmware just to make sure that it wasn’t an issue with a bad download or a faulty flash. The problem is consistent and repeatable. I have upgraded and downgraded twice, and the results are exactly the same. My VPN connection works with firmware 01, and it fails with version 02. There is a something different in the 02 firmware that is blocking VPN access.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using WRT160N V2 As Access Point?

Mar 22, 2013

I have a FIOS setup with their Router/modem providing DHCP and Wireless routing.  The problem I have is that I have a mix of older equipment and newer equipment.  The newer equipment is capable of supporting WPA2, the older is not.  I would like the benefits of WPA2, but still would like to at times be able to use the older equipment.My solution was to use a WRT160N v2 router that I had as an access point and it also gives me switch capabilities for wired systems as the FIOS router in on a different floor than the Linksys router.  Wired access works just fine and the wireless worked fine until just recently.Since both routers have the same default IP addresses I changed the Linksys to a different static IP and turned off DHCP.  I left all of the other defaults the same.  I set up the Linksys for WEP and created the key for security.  Everything worked fine for the better part of a year, but recently I am having problems where some of the computers cannot find the network or find it then lose connection.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Use WRT160N As Access Point?

Aug 3, 2011

I have a WRT 160n I want to use as an access point.  The cable company has provided the main router so I want to use the 160 as the access point.  I have a switch attached to the router and have the 160 attached to the switch.  I can ping and access the 160, however there signal strength has not changed and is still extremely low.  I know that the strength on the router is very good when I plug it in to the cable modem.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT310Nv2 Sometimes Blocking Access To Facebook Page

Nov 6, 2012

I've been using my WRT310Nv2 Cisco wireless Gigabit N router for 2 weeks now, and sometimes, it's blocking access to Facebook.comI am not aware if it does the same thing with other websites, but my guess is that if I fix this one, I'll fix them all. So here I go, I click on my Facebook icon in my bookmarks and all goes well. Then, a while after, Facebook doesn't respond anymore and I'm send to a page that says "this is probably not the webpage you are looking for!" and it goes on about someone probably trying to hack my Internet and so on. But it's impossible: my network is under a solid WPA/WPA 2 security access. So I try again and click on the FB icon, and it shows me this:

"Invalid URL
The requested URL "/", is invalid.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Setting Up Access Point With WRT160n?

Sep 19, 2011

I just bought a Linksys E4200 wireless router. I have an old Linksys WRT160N wireless router.  I would like to setup the WRT160N downstairs to wire the DirecTv box and PS3 to it. Then wirelessly connect to the E4200 upstairs where our modem is connected.  Can the WRT160N be used as an access point to do this or do I need other equipment?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V2 As Access Point Inside LAN

Oct 13, 2008

I got this router and I need to set it as an Access Point (will not be using the routing functionality) in the far side of our building. Our LAN uses IP address in the range 10 with subnet 255.0.0.0, so I need to put the access point ino this subnet. The drop down box only allows me to set some predefined subnet masks, none of which matches ours. So how am I supposed to set this router in our LAN?

Linksys Wireless Router :: No HTTPS Access To Admin Interface On WRT160n V3?

Feb 16, 2012

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.

No Wireless Internet Connection After Resetting Linksys Wrt160n V3 Router?

Jul 22, 2011

specs: linksys router wrt160n v3, verizon modem gt701c, windows xp service pack 3, verizon DSL, southern california.I have been able to connect to the internet directly through the modem only...but i need my wireless back working. I've reset my router a few times recently trying things i've read on forums from people with similar problems. The most recent thing i did was RESET the router -> connected modem/router/computer properly -> turned them all back on in the proper order -> check to see if websites would open. They didn't so i tried doing this, which was suggested...i plugged the router into the computer and enabled MAC address and then pressed the Clone MAC address button and saved....then I tturned everything off again and rebooted everything again in the proper order and still couldn't load any web pages. Here are my IPCONFIG/ALL read outs for both when i'm hooked up with the router & modem (which isnt working) and directly to the modem (which is working) this is the one with the router & modem:

C:Documents and SettingsOwner>ipconfig/all
Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : shakas
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown

[code]....

My modem and wireless were working fine for years...and then recently without me doing anything my modem kept dropping connection and the internet and dsl lights kept flashing and then going back solid....so i'd be connected for a few minutes and then they'd start flashing again over and over all the time. I finally called verizon and then had me fiddle around with stuff...followed all their directions...but ended up only being able to connect while directly connected to the modem. Even then, the modem was still losing connection and getting it back. (i was supposed to schedule a house call for a tech to check it out, never did) Over a couple weeks the connection ended up getting better on its own, so now it pretty much never drops out anymore. (almost) i've reset my modem, i've reset my router....i just still cant seem to get websites working with my modem and wireless router connected.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V2 Dropping Internet Connection?

Oct 3, 2011

I recently changed the security mode on my router from WEP to WPA2 Personal. However, since that change, I've noticed that the wireless devices, 2-laptops, are intermittently loosing their connections. . I don't know if it has anything to do with the security mode change, but I don't want to go back to WEP for obvious reasons.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Internet Speed With WRT160N?

Aug 7, 2008

I've recently purchased a WRT160N router, and I'm using it in conjunction with a WMP54G wireless PCI card. I've set the router up to my requirements, and can get a stable wireless connection.. but internet speed seems excessively slow. While I'm able to get up to around 4MB/s transferring files over the network, running speed tests, it consecutively shows my download speed to sit around 400KB/s, whereas I'm able to get a steady 1.1MB/s on another desktop that is wired. Disabling the LAN adapter on that computer, and connecting via wireless, brings down the speed that that computer is able to get to around 400KB/s as well. Hence, I don't think it's my wireless cards, but something to do with the router itself.I'm also experiencing lag spike issues in online games, which I can only attribute to the current wireless setup, because I've previously had no issues with it. All relevant ports are forwarded, so that is not an issue.After doing some Googling on the subject, someone had suggested running SpeedGuide's TCP Optimizer, and changing the RWIN - I ran it, and set it to the 'optimal' settings, and after a reboot the wireless seemed fine - I was getting just a tad under what I should (about 950KB/s).. but after a short while, it just went back to 400KB/s. After further investigation, it seems that Vista automatically changes that RWIN value to optimize network traffic.. but I never had this issue with my old wireless gear, so I can only assume that the way Vista is reacting is based on the way the router is interacting with it.

Linksys Wireless Router :: No Internet With WRT160N & GT701 Actiontec?

Oct 9, 2010

I had an old MS DSL1000 that was upgraded by Qwest to an Actiontec GT701 (not wireless) modem. If the GT701 is plugged directly into the PC, the internet works fine. If it is connected from the ethernet port into the WRT160N router, the LAN works but not the internet, even though the internet light is a solid green on the GT701. I've read about port forwarding and DMZ, but still not positive if I should do one or the other, much less on how to go about setting either of them up correctly.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Gaining Permission / Access To Files On E1550?

Aug 30, 2011

I installed a Linksys E1550 wireless router at home and I moved an external storage drive from the old computer (soon to be gone) to the router via the USB port in the router. 
 
I can see the drive and files on the router on both the old computer and the new laptop, but I can't do anything with them. When I look at permissions for any given file it says: "Everyone" has read and execute only.  "root" has Full Control, but I can't gain access to the "root" userid.  I have gone through the router setup and folder/file properties using the "admin" userid and the router acknowledges that it is there, but it won't allow me to add permissions for the "admin" with "Full Control" to any of the items.
 
It won't even allow me to add new files, even though I have setup sharing for the entire partition.

I have tried mac address clone that was suggested on this forum for someone with a different router but still no internet to my computer, its all hooked up through Ethernet cables, the computer I have it hooked up with a hard line is running windows seven. When I plug the modem straight to the computer it works and I have internet but when I hook up the router between them it has no internet.
