Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V2 Connects For A Few Seconds Only

Sep 9, 2011

I have a WRT 160N v2 router. There's 1 computer wired to it, that works fine.  Then I have 2 laptops and a pc wireless to it.  One laptop is a mac and that seems to be fine, another is a Compaq notebook that has trouble connecting and the pc has the same problem.  The signal strength is very good to excellent so thats not the issue.  What happens with the pc is, it will connect but at times its only for a few seconds then it disconnects.  Sometimes restarting the computer fixes it for a while but it will eventually start having the problem again.  It detects the wireless network just fine, and the router's firmware is up to date.  I have a feeling that its the settings in the router but im not sure what to change.

New Dell Laptop Connects Then Loses Wireless Connection Within Seconds?

Jul 31, 2011

Our entire office runs on wireless connections (laptops, printers, desktops, etc) and we have little to no connectivity issues considering. However, we just purchased a new dell laptop. the laptop connected but within 5 seconds immediate loses the connection and reconnects, disconnects, etc.. This is continuous. All other devices, 2 other never-before connected laptops and a tablet have all sucessfully connected without issues...only this new dell laptop does it. The laptop connects and stays connected to all other wifi connections we have tried it with (other corporate wifi and home wifi's). Dell has replaced the wireless card to confirm there was not issue with that (which I was confident there wasn't). Our IT contact suggests buying a new $500 router, but that is a little hard for me to accept seeing that only 1 device is having difficulties (his other reason for this was his concern that he couldn't access something like the router's management tool, or something like that). New Laptop is running W7 OS..

Internet Connects For Only A Few Seconds?

Feb 21, 2011

I recently got a computer, and it's all running fine, except for the internet.My internet connects through wireless to a box, I have no idea what you call it. Router?The house has three active laptops, all of which are working perfectly fine. This new computer,however, is a desktop, and I am trying to connect to my house's internet through a USB stick device that transmits the signal (D-link, model DWA-110). I know for a fact that this device works for two reasons. Firstly, I've used it in another laptop, and more strangely, it works on this new computer sometimes too.After about half an hour of random methods to make a connection stick, it might connect. And it lasts until the computer goes to standby, or is turned off. This is just random stuff through the network and sharing centre part of the control panel.Nothing ever works twice, and I haven't been able to replicate it for about a week. It successfully connects, and the connection is real because I can access the internet momentarily. But it always just disconnects again. I've tried it in every USB port, too.The signal strength is excellent, and when it connects it works great. It just almost always fails to.

I have a Netgear N600 (I'm not sure if this is the model number...) and the wireless adapter that was built into my P8Z77-V Pro is an Atheros AR9485. Everything was working fine up until last night, and now I can't seem to connect to anything for more than a couple seconds before it disconnects me again.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 Signal Remains For About 30 Seconds And Then Gone Again

Dec 4, 2011

My wireless from my Linksys E2000 router NEVER works. I've tried the same things and I have also tried to change the Advanced wireless settings, none of these things worked.When I unplug the energy cable from my router for ~15 secs, I sometimes can connect to a Wireless signal, this signal remains for about 30 seconds and is then gone again. This happens even if I'm standing right next to my router.I have no idea what the problem is, even I find this story very unbelievable, but I have tried everything I could and still we never have Wireless

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Few Seconds For Web Interface To Display

Jul 16, 2011

I have a E4200 setup for 2.4 & 5G running the latest firmware. When I connect to the router wireless and log in, it takes a few seconds for the web interface to display. Same happens when switching to the different config tabs. Is there any reason for this? I would think it would be immediate but it takes anywhere from 3-5 seconds for IE9 to respond.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V1 Disconnect Power From Router For About 15 Seconds / Plug It Back In

Apr 27, 2013

I have a Linksys WRT54G2 v1 router which is having a daily problem of connectiing to the Internet on my home wireless LAN. My temporary solution is to disconnect the power from the router for about 15 seconds and plug it back in .... and all is well.... at least for another day or so.The real problem is that instead of properly connecting to IPv4 address ..... it randomly connects to Autoconfiguration IPv4 address When this problem occurs the SSID list shows both my 192 connection as well as a public network with no Internet connection?
I've used this router for several years without a problem until I recently bought a new  Canon wireless MG5320 printer which initially had problems connecting to my LAN. After a telco with tech support the printer works fine but now I am now experiencing the Autoconfig address problem.My LAN consist of the WRT54G router, a Motorola cable modem, a Lenovo laptop running Win7 64bit, a Hp desktop running Win7 64bit  and the Canon wireless printer. (all connected wirelessly)

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea4500 Wifi Signal Disappearing For Few Seconds

May 6, 2012

My new EA4500 works fine all day, both wireless and wifi, on both bands, but nearly every evening, the wifi signal disappears, as shown on a wifi app for my smart phone, but not on Issid on my laptop, strangely, and my PC laptop and iPad both disconnect, then reconnect.  Smart phone disconnects too.  It isn't like the signal drops in strength, it just goes away! I have tried various settings on modes, and bandwidths, I am using different SSID's on each band, WPA2 security with a long non-dictionary passphrase and MAC filtering.  The hardwire connection works great at 30+ Mbps even when the wifi is disappearing from the wifi scanner and the wifi connections are dropping.  In other words, the cable connection/modem is working fine, but the wifi radio signal stops or the SSID drops off the signal.  I really can't tell, but I know it is becoming very frustrating.  The old WRT54GS works fine if I put it back on-line in the evening when these things start to happen. 
I have turned off everything I can think of in the house that transmits or might transmit, in case it is an interference thing.  I have tried disabling the 5 GHz side, since I can't see what is happening on that band, and the last thing I tried was changing the MTU from 1500 to 1400.  So far, the past evening, it was okay, but I am not confident it will stay that way.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Internet Port Cycles On And Off Every Few Seconds

Oct 22, 2012

I bought a EA4500 to replace my old WRT54G earlier this year. At first the router worked fine. After the automatic firmware upgrade to Cisco Connect Cloud, I was never able to get the Connect Cloud stuff to work, constant 500 Internal Server errors when trying to access the router with the Internet cable attached.  So I downgraded back to the old firmware and all was well again.Then I started having problems a few months ago, when I would wake up in the morning, the router would be cycling the Internet port on and off.I could usually reboot everything and it would work the rest of the day.I lived with it like this a while, and support couldn't seem to find anything wrong.Eventually it started getting worse, until the point I could hardly ever get it to stay connected.I got Cisco to RA the old router and I figured problem solved. Now while the EA4500 was gone, I used my WRT54G again, and everything worked fine for nearly two weeks while I was waiting on the replacement EA4500.

So today the new EA4500 showed up, I connected and configured it, and it worked for a short time.Then suddenly I lost Internet, looked up at the modem and the LAN light was going on and off every few seconds. So I'm back in the same boat as before.I've tried changing cables, same setup works fine with the WRT54G. Modem works fine with WRT54G and connected directly to the computer, zero problems.I tried lowering the MTU, turning on MAC address cloning, and various other things.My modem is a HughesNet HN9000.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Only Connects Using Wep

Aug 9, 2011

I've been using the E1000 for months. I have 2 iphones, an ipod, a windows 7 netbook and a macbook connected wirelessly to it. It's been set at wpa2/wpa mixed mode all this time without a problem. Out of the blue: no wireless connection on any device. I restarted the modem, router, PC's, phones, etc. I've updated the firmware. The only way I can get a wireless connection is to use wep. How can I get the better security and speed of wpa2 back?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V3 Cuts In And Out

May 1, 2010

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V3 Keeps Disconnecting

Sep 7, 2011

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1500 Connects With 2 Computers But Not The 3rd

Aug 17, 2011

I ordered a linksys E1500 for a home office. There are 3 computers that connect wirelessly: a 8-year-old desktop with a Netgear USB adapter, a 1.5 year old laptop and a 3.5 year old netbook, both with internal wireless cards. The desktop and netbook are running Windows XP and the laptop runs WIndows 7.
The desktop (XP) and laptop (Windows 7) are able to connect with no problem. However, the netbook (XP) is having problems connecting. It is able to connect to the router using the WPA2 key, and says it has excellent signal. However, when I start up an internet browser, it gives me a DNS error for any page I try to access. Connecting directly to the router with a cable works fine.
I got on the phone with Linksys support. They told me the problem was that the computer wouldn't use WPA2, but when I switched to WEP, it didn't work at all!  I switched back to WPA2 and have the same problem as before: it connects to the network but DNS error messages for any website I try to access (And I've tried both Chrome and Explorer).
To make things more interesting, I set up a guest network on the router, and the netbook connects fine through that so far!

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 :: Difference Between WRT120N And WRT160N

Jul 29, 2011

I am considering to purchase a Linksys Wireless router, but I just don't know which one to select.There are so many different types that seem to have very similar (if not equal) specs.If I just limit myself to the WRT120N, the WRT160N and the E1000, they all have 4 ethernet ports (10/100), and they all support 802.11 b/g/n for the wireless part.Obviously they all promise a blazing performance, and wireless coverage throughout the whole house, without (many) blind spots.But if their specs are the same, why are they different types?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Can't Connect With Laptops

May 31, 2008

I have two computers on hard line and two laptops. All computers on the line work fine and flawlessly. But when I try to connect the laptops to the computer, they say there's a problem with the certificate. Both detect the connection, and with strong enough signal strength. I've tried WPA and WEP encryption methods, and disabling encryption methods. All had no change. I believe the problem lies with this Wi-Fi Protected Setup stuff, which I have no clue as to what the hell it's supposed to do. I've tried disabling it by turning it to manual, which all computers then lose internet connection entirely. Browsing the FAQ's, I havn't found a solution. I've been working on this thing for a solid 7 and a half hours straight, and phone support is trying to make me configure static IPs, which proved extremely inconvenient in the past.
