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've updated the firmware to unofficial url... and since then I can't connect to router through web interface. What can I do? Is there any way to update firmware back to official without web interface?
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.
Before 2 - 3 days I bought a PC with wireless lan (RP-WP5122E WL-N PCI-E ADAPTER). I have and laptop, too. My router is Linksys WRT160NL. The laptop have a wireless card with G standart. On speed test makes 14 - 17 Mbps download, which is normal. When I try to download something on my PC maximum speed is 400 - 600 kbps, on speed test is 2 - 4 Mbps. When I connect my PC with cable to my router speed was 10MB/s (80 - 85 Mbps). I try to change channels on wireless network, but there is no change. I downloaded the latest drivers for this WLAN, but the speed is the same. I change the slot on the mainboard and to flash the firmware on my router, but there is no change.
Just upgraded my E4200 to firmware 1.0.03 (from 1.0.01). I have some new issues, questions, and some outstanding issues.
1) Web interface over https is now painfully slow. 2) Does DDNS work in bridge mode? DynDNS allows the sending of an update without an IP address, so it should be able to work. 3) Does accessing the management interface in bridge mode count as local or remote? 4) I'd really like to be able to get WOL working through the router. I managed to create a static DHCP reservation for 192.168.1.254 to ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff, but I don't think the router added that entry to the ARP table, is there any way to do this.
(I think have WOL forwarded to 192.168.1.254). 5) Should the router be providing some local dns hostnames? For example I have the device name set up in the local network setup, but it won't resolve. Similar for connected devices, especially those with with a DHCP reservation. 6) In bridge mode, does it matter which port is used to connect to the other network device? Does it have to be the WAN port?
I recently bought a WRT160NL router. I have a 10/10 Mbps internet connection, but when I am connected via the router it only gives me ~2.5/1 Mbps speeds. Connecting my computer directly to the "wall" results in 10/10 Mbps speeds. I have tried connecting to the router both wireless and by wire, it makes no difference. The internal wired and wireless speeds are fine, as I have copied files over the internal switch and via the wireless network at relatively high speeds. I have not fiddled with any connection settings except creating a few permanent DHCP leases.
I have my internet connection connect to my main Linksys router WRT160NL (192.168.1.1) with 192.168.1.x.My 2nd Linksys router connect to the first one as Gateway as well.The 2nd router has its WAN ip of 192.168.1.100 and it's local subnet as 192.168.2.x.My machines at 192.168.2.x can get to the internet and connect to all machines in the 192.168.1.x network.However, the 1.x network can't access the machines on the 2's network. And because of that, i can not sharing or printing between two network.I try to add static routes on my main router (192.168.1.1) with the route: 192.168.2.0 mask 255.255.255.0 and defaute gateway 192.168.1.100However, the route not work still.anyway to make sure that the 1.x network able to access the 2.x network and from 2.x access 1.x for sharing files and printing.
Is there any way yo restart the WRT160NL from the web interface? I've had several routers before this Linksys and all of them had this option. In the web GUI of the WRT I can't find the way to do it and I have no other solution of unplugging it and plugging again.
I'm currently connected to an ISP whose modem is equipped with a wireless router. The router works fine, however, its range is too short. I tried configuring my Cisco Linksys WRT120NL to the modem and the internet does not go to my computer.
I have a issue with using a Media Server in my WRT160NL. I have tried several firmwares, but issue exists in all firmwares.I tried to play files on my Samsung LCD TV with embedded media player (this player can play files from USB storage or from DLNA servers). I have several video files in mkv and avi format. My TV has wireless connection to router (270Mbit). And I have the following situation:1. I write these files on USB drive, plug to TV, play in embedded player - all OK.2. I have a samsung DLNA server on PC and try to play the same files from PC via network - all OK. (My network - PC to WRT160NL via cable, TV and some other devices via WiFi, but in this time only TV via WiFi.)3. I plug the same USB drive with same files to WRT160NL, go to settings and enable Media Server, choose two folders for scan (one for MKV, one for AVI), scan it. I run player on TV, choose WRT160NL. TV can see all video files, but:- when I try to play mkv file - I have error after several seconds "the unsupported file format"- when I try to play avi file - it plays, but after 20-40 seconds I have error "WRT160NL is disconnected".What is wrong with DLNA server in WRT160NL? Because from other server via router all OK. USB drive in NTFS format, maybe I need to use a ext3 or other file system for DLNA?
Router is configured for manual setup, Wireless-G only, IP addresses start from 2, (range from 2 to 201).
I have a Gigabyte M912 netbook that used to connect to Internet over wireless through my old D-Link and had no problems with that.
With WL160NL it connects to the wireless all right, but it does not go anywhere from there. It gets an IP address, connects successfully, but no internet sites can be accessed. Pinging gateway (192.168.1.1) gives 4 request timeouts. Other devices (Acer A500 tablet, sever smartphones, even a blasted Wowwee Rovio) have no similar problems< connecting and seeing each other and connecting to the Internet.
1. I have no idea why that happens.
2. Restarting the netbook, switching the wifi module on and off, removing remembered network settings and inputting them anew etc. does nothing.
3. Manually configuring the netbook to use a predefined static IP address instead of DHCP did not work.
I have an issue with new Win8 & IE10. When I try to access web management interface of my wrt160nl (Firmware Version: 1.00.01 B15) via HTTPS I'm receiving the foolowing message:"Continue to this website (not recommended)." If I click on it another error page appears:"Certification error: Navigation blocked. There is a problem with this website's security certificate"
At the same time I'm able to acccess the management interface via HTTPS, but from my laptop with Win7 & IE9. There if I click on the red Certificate Error > View certificate and the certificate information is:Issued by: Linksys Issued to: Linksys Valid from : 1.1.2009 to 1.1.2010
So I'd like to know if I could update the router certificate or what settings should I use in IE10 in order to access the web management interface via HTTPS?
The USB storage drive is not found when I attempt to map the drive on my Mac Mini Lion OS, it is not found. My question is, does the wrt160nl storage feature work with Mac OS? I have upgraded firmware to 188.8.131.52 and latest version of Lion
WRT160NL exchange download and upload speeds.Before the router everything is fine, then it wireless or Ethernet port occurs above situation.No difference what firmware it is (1.0.02, 1.0.03, DD-WRT...)
Trying to update my firmware 1.00.01 B15 to 1.00.01 B17. I downloaded the firmware to my desktop (using mac os X 10.5.5) and connected my computer directly to port 1 on the back of the router. I used the Firmware upgrade tool under the Administration tab to upload the new firmware file. The update progress starts but fails at 98%
I have an NTFS formatted USB disk drive (Western Digital My Passport Essential Black 320 GB WDBAAA3200ABK) attached to the WRT160NL wireless router (Firmware Version 1.0.02), and I have video, picture and music files on the USB disk drive in three folders: Videos, Music, Pictures. Auto-scan is disabled, I scan the media files manually by clicking on the 'Scan All' button.
PROBLEM 1 The worst problem is that the router is very sensitive to files that can't be recognized by the router as media files. For example if there are subtitle files (*.str) between the media files, then strange and nondeterministic things happen: some valid media files are skipped and not included in the media database; some files included but the file names are mixed. The most irritating in the bug is that there is no log file, where you could find the problem, and so you never know which file cause the problem, and you have to browse through all the files hunting for the cause.
PROBLEM 2 When the router is in the process of scanning the media files, then the internet (WAN) connection often can't be used, although the router can be accessed and the status says it is connected to the internet.
My University has free Internet at student homes, but we need to login by PPTP to get an official, public IPv4 and be able to reach the outside world. The network people at the University says that when the PPTP is up, everything should be open (no firewall of any kind).
have my WRT160NL that gets a 10.10.73.0/23 address from DHCP on WAN port. Currently I have 10.10.74.21. My internal network uses 172.17.17.0/24.My PPTP-server is located at 10.192.1.1 and when I connect, I usually get an IP in the 184.108.40.206/24-range. Currently I have 220.127.116.11. I use DynDNS to make sure I always know the public IP by the host binders.dyndns.info ...
So, I have Remote management enabled with HTTP and HTTPS, any IP and default port 8080. But no response from the outside world seems to go through.If I turn of the "filter ICMP" but keep the SPI Firewall on, I get ping reply from external sources towards my router, but still no HTTP or HTTPS response.I also have a Torrent I try to port forward to to be active, this is 23277, and this is the only thing that keeps coming up in the incoming log on my router.
It's not possible to connect to the routers management over the PPTP-tunnel?And why can't I get the port forward to work .. Same reason? PPTP 18.104.22.168 -> 172.17.17.100 (LAN) won't work?
I have WRT160NL with Firmware Version: 1.0.02. After 3 days of trying to connect my WD Elements 3TB I succeeded with 2 partitions of 1TB and one of 700 Gb not visible from router. I'm ok with that. The problem now is when I copy my files. I'm trying to create TV Series library for my Apple TV. Everything is working fine except the size of the files. When I'm copying files from PC USB they are corrupted on the network storage and not accessible. When I'm copying one file of size 350 Mb on the Network Storage via WIFI working fine but is saved with size of 2,7 Gb.
So the problem is this: I have a Samsung TV (LE32B650) with the most recent firmware installed, connected via wire with the WRT160NL.The router also has a 320 GB disk plugged in with a bunch of movies.When I use the uPnP media server with Windows 7 PCs (wirelessly) or even a Samsung smartfone it all works very well. However the TV has an issue disconnecting from the media server in just moments from turning the DLNA function.Well to be more precise the TV says the the media served got disconnected.The router has the latest firmware, I have tried with HDDs ane thumbdrives (with just 1 AVI to make sure there is no conflict of unsupported file formats), I exchanged the wire (TV<->router), added guest user to access the partition with all scanned folders.
I needed to immediately set a schedule and block IPs, these pages are built into the router.It took forever for the pages to load it took 30 minutes to navigae 5 pages. Every time I try it.Router is good and signal is excellent but the admin router pages to configure are frustratingly slow.As a techie it is anoying, as a customer getting support by the hour spend more on a faster better quillity router were the work can be done in 1/20th of the time it takes on this router.I'd say I have a dud but once setup the router is a great performer if you do not need to admin the router further?
I'm using linksys WRT160NL router and it works fine with 2 laptops, but other 2 laptops have problems with disconnecting from network and them it says Limited access internet. It's happening very often and especialy when downloading.I updated firmware and tried different channels, didn't work. Network mode is Mixed, could this cause the problem? Could it be problem with internet provider?
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 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 22.214.171.124. 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]...
