Question about Linksys by Cisco Linksys E3200 Dual-Band N Router w/ USB Port

1 Answer

Cisco E3200 router configuration lost

Yesterday it was working correctly, the Router refused today any wireless connections. When logging in from the Ethernet PC to 192.168.1.1 it showed a special window rather than the usual login screen saying there was no wireless configuration which makes a security hazard. It wanted to download and start Cisco Connect software. I refused this as this looked like a phishing attempt. Addressing directly again it asked for login data but did not accept user and password. Is there perhaps some kind of password valid timeout? Or this is a router virus? Or a hardware error, the Router has lost configuration?

The Cisco connect software came on the CD in the box with the router. If was used to configure the router when new. This can be used to fix the router now. I could guide you through a manual configuration but the software is a much faster easier method. I would recommend you try that route. Get the CD and run from there if you are worried about phishing.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the help. Actually as I connect from Linux I never used the Connect software from CD, but configured using web surface. Yesterday I figured out how to reset the router and what is the password after reset, thus I could reconfigure from scratch. Now it is working but still I have a bad feeling, why it has lost its configuration suddenly."

How to configure router to other computer without internet?


For a computer to connect to router there is no need for internet.
If your router is active and functional any computer in its range can be connected with wires by ethernet port or wirelessly with wireless card.
If your computer has wireless card it will recognize the Linksys router and you can connect automatically unless you have a password set for wireless security.
If you need to log on to the router and change settings first step is connect your computer to router wireless or wired then open web browser like Internet explorer or firefox. type 192.168.1.1 this will open a dialogue box for user id and password leave user id blank and type admin in password line. once you are router page you can configure settings on router.
If you need help with setting up router post the question again! good luck

How will I change the username and the password of the router? Because my friend is trying to connect to our internet here at home, but she can't connect because the router is asking for a password...


On your computer (the one connected to the router) open in browser http://192.168.1.1 and log into router's configuration page ... there on the "wireless" section you will find "Wireless security" ... there you can set up the password.
If you don't have access to the configuration page or you have problems setting up the password, you can always reset the router to it's factory settings. To do so you have to find a slightly hidden reset button on your router and push it (with a needle or something).
For more details read the manual at: http://homedownloads.cisco.com/downloads/userguide/E1000_V10_UG_USA_NC-WEB.pdf

The wireless on my new router is not working but the wired is.My wireless can connect to the signal but it stills says no internet access. it was working earlier today but not now. I have a Linksys WRT320N...


If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .
Make sure that the DHCP server on the router is enabled

Router cannot get IP with cisco 675 modem


Hi,

The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.

The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".

After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.

Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.

It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
