Re: Linksys wireless issue

More then likely the cable company changed the ip addresses for the local side of thier router. if they made thier routers local side be and if you linksys router (which is by default) also on the lan it will not work.

call your cable company and ask them what the local (LAN) ip address range is and adjust it or the linksys router accordingly

Is this working before? Then This is for reconfiguration and the solution Enuro 12 gave you  is right.


 To add up, password is admin and leave username blank. If after configuration it won't still work, then have the firmware upgraded and you can call 18003267114 for manual upgrade of firmware.

Re: Linksys wireless issue

Sounds like your pc is grabbing up an IP address but your Wireless router isn't.
Plug your cable into the Linksys just like you did before.
Your default ip will be something like

Open your web browser and type in
it should ask for a user and password
put in admin and admin, or just admin for the password and no username. I have not used that model so i'm not sure.

Find the administration page i believe. Then find "Mac Address Clone" select copy my mac address, and select the box for using the option, then save.

Reboot both devices (Unplug and plug them back in) and that should fix the problem.

As for wireless on the latop, do you have wireless working on anything else?

Can only get a 10 meg when connected via cable to srx 200

The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40

Slow speed

If you are connecting wirelessly, what you can do is change the wireless channel of the router by accessing the router's Setup Page. The distance is also 1 factor so you need to stay in a good range. If you are hardwired to the router, you can try to change the MTU of the router through the Setup Page as well. MTU value should be Manual 1492 and save the changes.
