Dec 18, 2011

I am unable to connect both of my smart phones to the access point.  I am using WPA2 encryption on the AP.  I can connect my phones to other AP's using WPA2.  I have other devices that connect to the AP except my Android phones.  I would like to be able to get some debug logs except the web interface says that the logging fictions are disabled when in bridge mode. Cisco/Linksys tech support: Any troubleshooting tips other than resetting the access point and or reflashing it.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Low Transmission Rate In E1200 Firmware V2.0.04 (Build 1)?

Nov 1, 2012

the only way i can get 300mbps from this router is by having these settings, it seems the only valid settings to get  300mbps from the router are the following:
Network Mode: mixed
Channel Width: auto (20mhz or 40mhz)
Channel : 1
if i leave the channel to auto it won't show up as 300.on top of that it doesn't want to stay at 300mbps for very long, sometimes its max rate in inSSDer is only 144 or 156mbps. its the weirdest thing, i think this version of the firmware seems to forget to check for how fast its wireless transmit speed is.When it reboots it only transmits at 144 or 156mbps. i have to go in the basic wireless page and just save the settings to reset it to 300, i don't even have to change anything, it resets its max rated speed back up to 300mbps.and more importantly, are the devs aware of this problem for the e1200 v2 ?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Firmware V2.0.37 (Build 131047) Feedback

May 7, 2012

Just a few things I've noticed with this build..
1.) If you reboot the modem, it seems to loose UPnP settings.  I have to turn UPnP off then back on again in order UPnP to work normally.
2.) Probably petty but when I click the Disconnect button under Router Status, the page doesn't automatically refresh like it did with E4200v1.  I have to manually refresh to get the connect button to appear.  The refresh issue is also true within the mobile app.  Again, not an issue with E4200v1.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N - Print Spooler Not Working Since Installing?

Oct 28, 2008

Since installing my WRT160N my printers have stopped working. All printer drivers have been removed including acrobat and my fax.
Even if I try reinstalling my drivers, I get the following error: Spooler SubSystem App has encountered a problem and needs to close. 
Prior to this error my firewall was giving me constant warnings about  Pure Networks Admin assistant application trying to access the same files(i.e. nmctxth.exe). Even though I allowed it still kept popping up.
 I am using the online armor firewall on a Windows XP system. I cannot access the LinkSys Advisor anymore as it will not start.

Cisco Wireless :: Slow Download Speeds With Linksys WRT160N V2 Router

Aug 28, 2012

I have a Linksys WRT160N V2 wireless router that I am using with my Comcast Internet service. When I connect to the router via cable, I get download speeds up to 52Mbs (per When I test my wireless connection, I can only get download speeds up to 14.5 Mbs, even though the Windows “Wireless Network Connection” speed shows 54.0 Mbs. I also verified this with another laptop, and got the same results. I also checked upload speeds, both wired and wireless I get the same speed of 11 Mbs.
Is there some reason I can’t get faster download speeds with a wireless connection?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt160N Version3 Download Speeds Fluctuate Greatly?

Jan 11, 2010

Recently bought a new Dell XPS8500; it's connected to my Linksys WRT160N router. After running some speed tests in the evenings I noticed I'm only getting around 2Mbps download speeds. In the mornings I'm getting around 20Mbps download speeds (using the same tests). Could this huge difference be caused by my service provider and/or amount of people online in the evenings? Is there anything in the router settings that could/should be adjusted? Below are the release notes for the new firmware version:
1. Fixed issue with NMH series. `
2. Fixed PPTP client cannot get ICMP response from Internet.
3. Fixed issue with NTP
4. Fixed issue with L2TP UDP packets can be received in Internet side.
5. Fixed TZO and DyneDNS not automatically updating.
6. Fixed some Wireless protected setup issue.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Not Providing Fast Wireless Speeds?

Jan 26, 2012

I recently bought a WRT160N Wireless router and am not getting fast wireless speeds. My ISP told me my speeds are 10mbps download and 1 mbps upload. I realize that this is not lighting fast but it is all that I feel like i need. My speeds on the WRT160N are about 2-3 MBPS d/l and 600kbps u/l on my wireless connection, which is hooked up to my playstation 3. My wired connection, which goes to my pc, is 9.75 mbps d/l and about .95 mbps u/l, which seems right. Why am I getting such low speeds with a router that is suppose to be build for faster wireless and longer ranges.To make a comparison, I have been using an OLD linksys b-rated router. i can't exactly remember the model, but i think it is the bef11s4, it came with a network card and is about 6-7 years old. I was getting 3-3.5 mbps d/l and 800kbps u/l with the b rated router, and it seemed like a better reception, like in the 80's-90's. ThisWRT160N is getting like in the 70's and sometimes lower.I have tried setting the router to open all ports to a dedicated ip address, it made things a little better, maybe getting 2.5 mbps d/l at the most. What am i doing wrong? I have heard something about tomato firmware but am not real familiar with it?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Wireless Transfer Speeds / Wrt160n V3

Jul 21, 2011

I have a home network with a media center.  I have the hauppauge 1212 HD pvr so that I can record video in HD to my hard drive.  I want to stream this content to the differnet PCs on my home network.  Every TV in my home I have hooked an HTPC to it.  I use them to play dvd's.  Stream netflixs etc. My problem is that I am getting a terrible transer rate wirelessly.  600 -750 kbps.  (tested by transfering large files from pc to pc)  All computers have 300Mbps wireless n cards.  all are recieving max signals.  There are either 3 or 4 pc's connected at a time depending on whether my laptop is connected or not.  Obviously this is way to slow to stream video. Made sure my network name is unique.  changed to wireless channel 1 I do think I have WEP 64bit encription could this be an issue?

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 - Slower Speeds Found Since Installing

Mar 9, 2013

I have had an issue with my AE2500 wireless adapter. I am using a LInksys E2500 dual band router but my samsung laptop's wireless adapter doesn't support 5ghz band, so bought the AE2500.I disabled the internal adapter and got the AE2500 connected up. I've set up the 5ghz channel with wireless N, and left 2.5ghz as it was. Somehow I am now experiencing slower speeds on both bands, when using's speed test. It's the 2nd time in my life I am having an issue like this, where I am adding something with capacity for more speed but end up things being worse. Previous was with a netgear adapter and router a few years ago. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I honestly don't think so.Also best sequence to get the new adapter connected? Should I do it before I disable the existing adapter?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Upgrade WRT160n To Firmware V3.0.03?

Jul 31, 2011

I had issues with my router incorrectly resolving URLs. For example, going to would gtive me a "wiki does not exist" message. Pinging would give me an IP that belongs to wikipedia. The answer was SUPPOSED to be upgrading to v3.0.03.I upgraded and now my router WILL NOT connect to my DSL modem. Oh, it says it's connected and shows the correct IP address for my DSL modem but the gateway is showing Direct connection to my PC works just fine.I have cycled the power on both the router and the DSL modem several times. The DSL modem is working just fine. I have done several IP release/renew on the router. I have reset the router. To no avail. This firmware update (which completed successfully) seems to have killed my routers ability to communitcate with the internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Firmware Version For WRT160N?

Jan 25, 2013

Looking into a firmware upgrade. I have a WRT160N. The label on the back, next to Model Number, simply says WRT160N with no version number. I therefore conclude, per info on the Cisco site, that it is a V1 model, not V2 or V3. And yet the Admin web page for the router says firmware version is 3.0.02. I'm pretty confident I have never upgraded firmware on this router, which means this is how it came out of the box long ago. Latest firmware for V1 is 1.02.11; latest firmware for V3 is 3.0.03.
Should I upgrade to 3.0.03? Is there a way to downgrade to 1.02.11? I'm having some minor issues whch may or may not be the ruter's fault, I figure a firmware upgrade (downgrade?) will at least rule out router firmware issues.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Is Re-flash Simply Downloading And Installing Firmware

Jun 2, 2012

I have the latest firmware, have the settings correct (the UPnP is disabled and whatever)

Model number: E3000
Serial number: CVQ01KC13100
Firmware version: 1.0.04 build 6
Operating system: Windows 7 SP 1
Software version: 1.3.11006.1
Connection type (WAN): PPPoE
Went out of town 2 weeks in March, and all through April didn't have any disconnects. Have had this problem since I got it, it gets really bad from time to time (like now).  Thought it was my provider for the longest time, but found out if I connect via wired, no disconnects!  Is re-flash simply downloading and installing firmware?

what is latest firmware version is for router WRT 160n (v1). The Linksys site currently states that it is Ver.1.02.11 (11/08/10). However, on the admin page for my actual router it states v1.52.0 Nov 16, 2007.  These versions #s and dates don't jive. How could I have a supposedly newer version that is older than the most recent one posted?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt160n Lost Wifi Connectivity After Firmware Update

Dec 2, 2011

I updated the fimware on my WRT160N v3 and followed it up with a reset of the router.  I then restored the router settings that I had saved.  All the settings appeared to be good, but none of my wireless devices would connect.  I reneted the pass phrases (WPA2) but still nothing.  Tried to change the passphrase, still no good.  I then did a factory reset of the router from the setiings page and manually re-entered and save the settings, again nothing.  All of my devices are able to "see" the network and the correct SSID.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N - Upgraded Firmware Now Setup Page Won't Open?

Aug 7, 2011

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 wont open, I get a message saying it cant open this page

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Hangs - Restore Original Firmware In Case Update Fails?

Jun 16, 2008

I purchased a WRT160N router last Friday. After setting it up, everything seemed to work fine, but after a couple of hours, the router stopped responding to any requests. The LEDs stayed on as if nothing had happened, but the router was dropping everything coming from both the WAN and a wired LAN interface. Since than, I had to restart it 3 times during the last 3 days.The firmware is 1.53.0, which seems to be the latest firmware for the European market - even when I try to get a newer firmware, this site only offers the US version 1.02.2.Should I update the firmware to the US version 1.02.2 ? Is there any difference between the 1.53.0 and the 1.02.2 version ? Is there a way to restore the original firmware in case the update fails ? I haven't found any link to 1.53.0 version..Also, does this firmware updating affect my warranty ?

DSL-G604T - Slow Browsing But Fast Download Speeds On New Computer Build

Oct 8, 2012

I had recently upgraded my computer, which currently looks like this:

CPU: i5 3570
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP
RAM: G.Skill 16GB DDR3 1600MHz
HDD: Seagate ST1000DM003 1TB Barracuda + Seagate 320GB Barracuda
GFX: Sapphire HD4850 512MB Dual Slot Fan
PSU: OCZ StealthXtream 500W
(The bits in bold were the upgraded parts, up from an AMD Athlon64X2 6000+)

For some really strange reason, my web browsing has been ridiculously slow, with the words "Waiting for [website]" always showing up in the bottom corner of Chrome for a good 10-20 seconds before the website loads. This happens to every website I visit, bar Facebook (secret Facebook virus?). It's especially bad on shopping websites such as eBay, taking upwards of a minute to load pages. I have tried Internet Explorer and the same thing is happening.

My downloads, on the other hand, have been unaffected by the upgrade, with download speeds averaging 800KB/s.

If it matters, my current modem/router is a D-LINK DSL-G604T; my other devices work perfectly fine on this modem, with browsing speeds being faster on my 2G iPod Touch than my desktop computer.

I currently use Avira Internet Security 2012 as my anti-virus.

I also use these extensions in Chrome (if it matters):
4chan Plus 2.5.5
Adblock Plus (Beta) 1.2
LastModified 1.1.2
Neater Bookmarks 0.9.4
PhotoZoom for Facebook 1.1208.30.1
Session Buddy 3.0.16
Xmarks Bookmark Sync 1.0.22
Youtube Ratings preview 2.0

I have tried disabling all add-ons and the speed is still the same

In the middle of writing this, I decided to download Firefox, which has improved on my browsing speed somewhat, but still has hiccups here and there (Facebook takes forever to load in Firefox). But having been a Chrome user for a long time, I would like to stick with it.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Range Has Suddenly Reduced

Mar 11, 2012

I have an E3000. I have moved to a new house. Here the router range has suddenly become very short. By very short I mean, it works well within the hall (10 meters), but as soon as I enter another room, it drops and doesn't work behind closed doors or through walls.  Also its next to a staircase, and wont work as I go downstairs and into a room.
I tried testing a D-link (N) router, and an Older Linksys (G) router, but all of them seem to be suffering the same problem. My wired connection is performing very well, and this prob is with Wifi only.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Fluctuating Internet Speeds With E3200?

Feb 26, 2012

My new e3200 setup just fine with Cisco Connect.  I have consistently good speeds with a direct ethernet connection, but the wireless speeds fluctuate widely.  When I power cycle the router, I'll have perfect speeds for a few minutes and then it'll slow to a crawl (approx 0.5Mbps).  Then for no apparent reason, it will speed back up to normal, and then back down to a crawl.  I'm using the latest firmware and have allowed Cisco Connect to manage the router so far.This is actually my 2nd router, as Tech Support told me when I experienced this with the first router that it was defective, but I'm seeing the same problem with the 2nd router, so I know something isn't quite right.

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


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 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?

However, since that change, I've noticed that the wireless devices, 2-laptops, are intermittently loosing their connections. .

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.

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 :: Wrt54g - Internet Speeds Slowing Down When Wifi Enabled

Jun 27, 2011

I have both the WRT54G and a E1000 wireless routers and this problem is occurring for both of them.I use AT&T DSL and the speeds are fine when it is :

1. Not plugged into router

2. Wireless Network Mode is disabled through the router configuration page, having all devices wired.
However when wireless network mode is enabled, speeds drop significantly, 15~17 ms ping goes to 250~800 ping, and download speeds are way lower also. When the router is reset, the regular speeds will return for maybe 30 seconds to 1 minute, then it'll drop back down. I'm positive there's no outsiders connected to my network and this problem still occurs, only when the router is giving out wireless signals. Sometimes the problem randomly goes away for a while but it will always come back. I've tried many things, firmware upgrades, factory restore, none of them seem to work, the only solution so far has been to disabling it, but I need it to be on as there are other devices in other rooms of the house that need WiFi to connect to the internet.
