SOURCE: Setting Up QoS (Quality of Service) Settings on the WRT54G

What is QoS? QoS is a popular feature that ?guarantees? better service to selected traffic on a network. The goal in configuring QoS is to give priority and attention to certain devices or services so that they can use the maximum available throughput and speed available on a certain network when it is needed. Accessing the Router?s Setup Page 1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. When the browser window opens, go to the Address bar and type in the router's IP Address and click on the Go button (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers). 3. A window will appear prompting for a ?User Name? and a ?Password?. Leave the ?User Name? field blank, and type in the router's password and click on the OK button to login (admin is the default password). 4. The router's web-based ?Setup? utility should then load. Enabling and Configuring QoS 1. Once in the Router?s Setup page, click on the Applications and Gaming tab. 2. Next, click o n the QoS sub-tab. 3. Select the Enable option to turn on QoS features. NOTE: If you do not see the QoS sub-tab, you must upgrade your router?s firmware to the latest version. See Answer ID 1508 for more information. The WRT54G offers three (3) different types of Quality of Service (QoS) options: MAC Address-based, Application-based, and Port-based. Choose the appropriate type for your needs. · MAC Address-based QoS: In the Device Priority section, you can specify the hardware MAC address of the computer or device that you wish to give priority to. You can assign a Low or High priority for up to two (2) specific MAC addresses found on your local network. · Port-based QoS: In the Ethernet Port Priority section, you can control bandwidth according to which of the physical LAN ports your computer or device is plugged into. You can assign a Low or High priority to computers or devices connected to any of the router?s LAN ports (1 through 4). NOTE: You can also Enable or Disable ?Flow Control? for each LAN port, which is a technique that controls the speed at which data is received. If Flow Control is enabled for a certain port, then a receiving device is not overwhelmed with data as it is coming in. You can even control the flow further by specifying the Incoming Rate Limit to a certain speed. · Application-based QoS: In the Application Priority section, you can control bandwidth with respect to a specific application being used on the network. You can assign a Low or High priority to a particular application or service. There are several pre-configured Web services that use well-known ports, like FTP and HTTP, which you can use. You can also customize up to three different applications by entering an Application Name and the Specific Port # that the software application uses. If you are unsure of the port number that is used for a particular application, contact the software manufacturer for more information. 4. When you have finished configuring QoS settings, click on Save Settings button to save your changes.

SOURCE: unable to write network settings to device

Which network settings are you trying to write? In general, try getting Network Magic. It's a free download and trial and can help with some Linksys/Cisco problems.
Also, you may try getting into the firmware itself. Use any web browser and enter the following IP address as your URL: 192.168.1.1. At that point you're directly accessing the settings on the router and should be able to make any changes you need. By the way, this only works if you're connected directly to the router via Ethernet cable.

How to disable MAC filtering


MAC (Multimedia Access Control) addresses are unique sets of codes assigned to electronic devices that identify the devices on a network. MAC filters work by either allowing or denying only specific MAC addresses. MAC filters are a great security measure; however, if your network needs to be open to public or guests, or you're adding and removing devices often, then you should consider turning off MAC filtering.
Ad

EditMethod One of Three:
Wireless Routers (Windows)


  1. 1 Open the Command Prompt. You can access it from the Start menu, or by pressing ? Win+R and typing cmd.

  2. 2 Type .ipconfig and press? Enter.

  3. 3 Find your active network connection.There may be several connections listed in the readout, and you may have to scroll up to find your active connection.

  4. 4 Look for the .Default Gatewayentry. This is the address for your router. Write it down.

  5. 5 Open a web browser. You can access your router's configuration page from any web browser as long as your computer is connected to the network.

  6. 6 Enter the .Default Gateway address into the browser's address bar.

  7. 7 Log in with your admin account.Routers are protected with an admin login and password. Check your router's documentation or look up the model online to find the default login information.
    • If you can't figure out how to log in to your router, you can reset it by pressing and holding the Reset button on the back for about 30 seconds. After the router restarts, you will be able to log in with the default admin information.
    • Most default logins use "admin" as the username, and then "admin", "password", or a blank field as the password.

  8. 8 Open the "Advanced" section and look for "MAC Filtering", "Access Control", or something similar. Actually defining where the "MAC Filtering" section is located is very difficult, as the location and labeling is different for every router. Generally, you can find the "MAC Filtering" or "Access Control" settings in the "Advanced" section, though it may also be found in the "Security" or "Wireless Settings" sections.
    • Not all routers use MAC address filtering. Some router's limit access based on static IP addresses assigned to each device.

  9. 9 Disable MAC filtering. Again, the wording and location will vary depending on the router, but you will generally be able to select a "Disable" option to turn off MAC filtering.
    • This may be a checkbox, a button or a selection that you can make.

  10. 10 Save your changes. Click the "Apply" or "Save" button to save your changes to the router settings. Your router will apply the changes, which may take a few moments.
    • If you are configuring your router over a wireless connection, you may be logged out when settings changes are saved.

I have full signal from the router, then when i connect my laptop to it i loose all signal and has to keep reconnecting


I would suggest you to reconfigure the router after you reset it. please make sure that you do not use a wireless phone nearby the router which is a major cause of the disconnection.

First disconnect the RJ 45 wire connected to your desktop Ethernet card coming from the router and connect this wire to the 'Internet' port on the
router now there is a connection to the 'Internet' port of your Linksys router.
Next use the RJ45 wire, which came in the Linksys box & connect one end to the Ethernet card of your laptop and the other end to any of the ports numbered 1 to 4.
Connect the power adapter pin in the power socket Power up the Linksys router & Laptop computer. Now lets get to the basic configuration of the Linksys wireless router.
This is how its have done successfully.
Open IE6/IE7 browser and type 192.168.1.1, a window will pop up & ask for username & password. Default user name is blank & default password is 'admin' after which you will come to the screen
'Internet Connection Type' is by default 'Automatic configuration DHCP' leave it as it is J (I did not which caused me a lot of grief J )
In 'Router Name' enter a name of your choice.
Let MTU be 'Auto'.
At 'Local IP Address' enter 10.10.0.1
'Subnet Mask' 255.255.255.0
'DHCP' is 'enable'
'Starting IP address' leave it as it is, this will be changed later.
'Static DNS 1' 192.168.1.1
'Static DNS 2' 203.94.227.70
'Time Zone' change it to relevant location.
Click on the 'Save' button.
At this point you will loose contact with the wireless router thru the browser. Double click on the computer icon in your task bar & go to the 'Support' tab and see the IP taken automatically by the machine most probably 10.10.0.2. Now type 10.10.0.1 in the browser location bar to gain access on the config page of the router & change (see above) the 'Starting IP address' to 10.10.0.2. click on 'Save'
Next click on the 'Wireless' tab give a name to your network also called SSID, remember all wireless machines on this network should have the same SSID ie network name & select what wireless network mode you need. If you have only laptops, which operate in the, 802.11g mode, (most new machines) then select 'G Only'. Click on 'Save Settings'.

You can now turn to your wireless PC or laptop to connect it to the wireless network. Here I am assuming your laptop has a built in WiFi card, if you are using an adaptor then follow the instructions of the adaptor maker. XP has a very user-friendly wireless networking utility. If you're setting up a network for the first time, use the Windows Wireless Network Setup Wizard, in the Control Panel. This copies configuration info to a USB flash drive that you can insert into each additional PC or device. If you use Vista (like me) it's just as easy going thru the Control Panel for first time users. After you have gone thru the setup wizard and it has recognized the network with the name you had previously given it, now you should be able to access the Internet.
Leave the laptop on for the time being and lets focus our attention on the router configuration thru the browser of the desktop.
Click on the 'Wireless tab & then on 'Wireless MAC filter' (on how to find the MAC address of your wireless machine go to right to the bottom of this page)
Click on the 'Enable button' and on the 'Permit button' & click on the 'Edit MAC filter list' and add the MAC address also called 'Physical address'
Click on 'Save Settings' in both windows.
Next click on the 'Wireless' tab -> 'Wireless Security' tab and select the appropriate settings (AES, TKIP or AES+TKIP) depending on what your laptop supports. Remember that WPA2 is considered the best as also AES+TKIP if your laptop supports it go for it. Select the same settings and password on your laptop. Click on 'Save Settings'
In the 'Security tab' select 1, 2 & 4 check boxes.(See below). Click on 'Save Settings'
At the 'Administration' tab -> Management change the routers password.
Also select the check box 'HTTPS'. Click on 'Save Settings'
After you have made all the relevant then go to the 'Administration' tab - 'Config Management' and take a back up of your settings. This can be done at a later stage too when you have made all the changes you need.
PS Remember that now to access the router thru the browser the address is 10.10.0.1 and NOT the one you will find in the user guides (192.168.1.1). And to access the D-Link 502T thru browser you type 192.168.1.1. Happy surfing.
you see below is the DNS settings
Finding the MAC Address and IP Address for Your Ethernet Adapter
Windows 2000 or XP
1. Click Start and Run. In the Open field, enter cmd. Press the Enter key or click the OK button.
2. At the command prompt, enter ipconfig /all. Then press the Enter key.
3. Write down the Physical Address as shown on your computer screen. It is the MAC address for your Ethernet adapter. This appears as a series of numbers and letters.
The MAC address/Physical Address is what you will use for MAC address cloning or MAC filtering. Note: The MAC address is also called the Physical Address.
Windows Vista
1. Click Start -> Accessories -> Command prompt
2. At the command prompt, enter ipconfig /all. Then press the Enter key.
