Question about Linksys -Cisco Wireless-G VPN Broadband Router [ WRV54G ] (107013)

1 Answer

Time Warner Cable won't identify Linksys WRV54G wireless router

Just moved from Denver to Austin and swithed from Qwest DSL to Time Warner Cable. I cannot for the life of me get a connection to get my Vonage phone to work. I have a new Linksys Wireless G, 2.4 HGz VPN Broadband Router connected to my Time Warner modem and I get zero connection with the router even though when I put the ethernet cable from the Time Warner modem I get perfect internet connection. Many Thanks

If you can connect directly via your modem, then the line up to your house is fine. So no problem with your ISP.

Since you changed from cable to DSL, you might have to re-configure your router.
Open a web browser, type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and log on to the web based router configuration page. (The default values are "admin" for username and "admin" for password)
Go to "Setup", choose "Basic" and review the entries there. You want to see it configured for "PPPoE".

Some DSL-based ISPs use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections. If you are connected to the Internet through a DSL line, check with your ISP to see if they use PPPoE.
If they do, you will have to enable PPPoE.
User Name and Password: enter the User Name and Password provided by your ISP.

Connect on Demand: Max Idle Time. You can configure the Router to cut the Internet connection after it has been inactive for a specified period of time (Max Idle Time). If your Internet connection has been terminated due to inactivity, Connect on Demand enables the router to automatically re-establish your connection as soon as you attempt to access the Internet again.
If you wish to activate Connect on Demand, click the radio button.

In the Max Idle Time field, enter the number of minutes you want to have elapsed before your Internet connection terminates.
Keep Alive Option: Redial Period. If you select this option, the router will periodically check your Internet connection. If you are disconnected, then the Router will automatically re-establish your connection. To use this option, click the radio button next to Keep Alive.
In the Redial Period field, you specify how often you want the Router to check the Internet connection. The default Redial Period is 30 seconds.
When you have finished making changes to the screen, click the Save Settings button to save the changes, or click the Cancel Changes button to undo your changes.

(This info is from the Linksys manual)

    Hi seanboy63,

    I just read my solution again and realized that I have misread your post. Sorry for that!
    Since you switched from DSL to cable, you want to set your Basic Setting to "Automatic DHCP" instead of PPPoE. That should solve the problem.
    If you don't have too many specific settings on your router you can also reset it. You'll find that option on the Administration tab under "Factory Default".

What is the Time Warner modem? Make, Model? If you have a Ethernet port RJ45 connect the wireless device via a ethernet cable. You may need a splitter if there is only one Ethernet RJ45 port. Example: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-RJ45-Splitter-Cable-Adapter/dp/B00009XSZE

I am running qwest DSL through a Linksys wrt160N that is brand new. it will work next to the router, but not upstairs or in the basement which is less than 15 meters. The upstairs bedroom is directly above...


If you have concrete floor slabs the the wireless signal from the Linksys will have a difficult time penetrating the floor slabs.
The wireless card in the computers will show a low signal strength.
Try altering the Linksys aerial to a horizontal position and also positioning the Linksys to another location.

You could be getting interference form other wireless sources, check the wireless channels of other wireless router/access points in your area. If they are broadcasting on the same channel then configure your Linksys to broadcast on an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength.
If none of these methods work then I would suggest you run network cables from the Linksys to upstairs and downstairs and not use the wireless connection.
If network cabling option is not an option then consider extending the wireless range with wireless repeater access points.

Can i use my 2700gh-b dsl 2wire wireless modem as wireless router to time warner cable? If so, how? I'm a newbee. Please help! Thanks in advance.


This Router designed for DSL internet. It wont work for cable internet. Best thing is to trade in with a normal access point or wireless network router. Like Linksys, Belkin, Netgear etc

I have Time Warner Cable for internet and Vontage cable for my phone thru my internet. I'm trying to connect a Linksys router for my wireless laptop. I also have a Netgear switch connected to Time Warner...


If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

VPN connection issues


check if you can enable "VPN pass-through" on your home router.
try diabling its security features (firewall) one at a time and try afterwards.
last option perhaps try upgrading to the 5.06 version of the vpn client.
