Question about Linksys E3000-CA Dual Band 802.11N Wireless N Router
I have an E3000 linksys router and have an attached external hard drive (iomega) which I have been using for well over a year for network sharing of files. Just recently I wanted to upgrade the hard drive and went into the web base UI to safely remove the drive. When I plugged the drive into my PC all the files were gone. I plugged the drive back into the router and could not access the files there either. I have since tried a recovery program and was able to see the lost files but everything is out of place and renamed. Did linksys create some form of encryption on the hard drive? Is there some other way of getting access to my files other than using a recovery program. I tried contacting support but they told me that the router is out of warranty and they could not help and suggest I buy a new upgrade version. Like I would ever go back to linksys after this bad advise. Any suggestion would be great. I have also tried to reboot the router with and without the hard drive attached. I have also googled this problem but I get no hits.
That is a very strange issue.Did you do any b/up recently? Did you experience any power grid shutdown on your neighbor? Can you plug your external hdd in another PC and test? There are several data recover softwares ,some for free and some paid.Also Iomega has a service to do it.If you want try any free data recover like MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition.

You do not have to use the cd. Follow these instructions:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

SOURCE: router only allowing 10mbps
The best and simple method to do is to do a hard reset of the router so that the factory default settings are put back.
If after that it still doesnt work check the QOS may be the port is set to use upto 10mbps only.
If not that then just upgrade to a firmware like tomato or dd-wrt they are very nice firmwares i personally use dd-wrt and its the best.

1 ***** the size of
files you need for taking the backup. Files having graphics, sound and videos
occupy more space than a simple text file.
2 Plan the future
requirements and consider the space needed accordingly.
3 Choose an
external drive of 20 GB or above to store huge data backups.
4 Get an external hard
drive and connecting cables to attach the drive to your computer.
5 Select the data you
want for backup. Organize the data into folders and sub-folders for easy find.
Financial data, digital photos and music can form priority data for backup.
6 Connect the drive
to your computer. Use the drag and drop options for taking the backup.
7 Remove the drive
after properly ejecting by right clicking on the task bar on the desktop.
8 Keep the external
drive away from the place where you have your computer when done. If your
computer gets damaged due to any unforeseen reason, you will have your entire
data safe in the external hard drive. It minimizes the risk of data loss.
