Question about Linksys (EFG120) 120 GB

1 Answer

Linksys efg120 NAS

The efg120 will not change any of its settings. I can access the web manager but when I change a setting and click on save I get an error message telling me that is cannot read the data. I can sign on as admin but it will not perform any disk task or change settings. Any ideas? I am assuming that their is a flash memory that is not being accessed.

Do a power cycle of the NAS, leave the power cable out for 15 seconds and try again. It may just be that the access to the data has been locked during a read/write process and has not released the access. Failing that, check for firmware updates - it may be a known issue. You can find the firmware for this device here: http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1169671129335&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=2933542294B02&displaypage=nodata#versiondetail

I need to get into my nat settings


All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.

NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or4 ).

Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page

NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.

Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

3676-003.png

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the router's IP address you can:



1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

Can i secure my network using wrt54g? some unknown user is accessing my network. How can i have security on my network? thanks.


To secure your Linksys WRT54G wireless router, follow these steps:
  1. Open your Internet browser and enter the following in the address bar: http://192.168.1.1.
  2. Note:

    If you have changed the IP address of your wireless router, enter that into the address bar. By default, the address is 192.168.1.1.

  3. Enter the user ID and password for your router. If you haven't changed it, the default password is "admin". We will change it later if you haven't already changed it.
  4. You should now see the "Basic Setup" Web page display in your browser. Scroll down the page until you see "Maximum Number of DHCP Users".
  5. This option will assign a specific number of IP address to computers. If more than this number of computers tries to connect to your router, they will not be able to.
  6. Count the number of computers that will connect to the router, and type it into the "Maximum Number of DHCP Users textbox".
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the Web page and click "Save Settings". Once the settings have been saved, click "Continue" to return to the Web page.
  8. At the top of the Web page, click the "Administration" option in the menu bar.
  9. On the "Management" Web page, you should see two password text boxes. This is where you should change your administrative password. Type in a new secure password into both boxes.
  10. Once you have changed your password, click "Save Settings" at the bottom of the Web page.
  11. You may be prompted to login again, if you are then enter you new password in the password field.
  12. Navigate back to the "Management" Web page by clicking the "Administrative" option in the menu.
  13. We will now encrypt your connection to your router setup from your computer. To do this click the "HTTPS" checkbox next to the "Access Server" option.
  14. Once again, click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page.
  15. You won't get the settings saved page again because the URL in the address bar is not longer correct. Since you have changed your connection to HTTPS, it you need to specify that in the address when you connect to the router setup.
  16. In your browser, change the address to: https://192.168.1.1.
  17. If you get a security error, ignore the error and continue to the Web page.
  18. Login with your password and then click the "Wireless" menu option.
  19. Beside the "Wireless Network Name (SSID)" option, type in a name for you network connection.
  20. Click the "Save Settings" button and the "Continue" button to return to the "Basic Wireless Settings" page.
  21. Click the "Wireless Security" sub-menu option at the top of the page. This is where we will provide the most important security setting.
  22. Next to "Security Mode", select "WPA - Personal" from the drop-down list. If you have trouble connecting to your wireless connection, you can try selecting "WEP", but your connection will be much less secure.
  23. Next to "WPA Algorithms", select "AES". Once again if you have trouble connecting to your wireless router, select "TKIP".
  24. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long "WPA Shared Key" with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation.
  25. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  26. Click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page, and then the "Continue" button.
Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your "WPA Shared Key" exactly as you specified it
