Linksy WRT54GR Router - Invalid Wireless MAC Address [EN] [FR]


[Englisch]
Hi there,

i have been troubled with the configuration of the linksys router WRT54GR when trying to add my wireless devices to the wireless client table.

First I found following hint:
http://forums.linksys.com/linksys/board/message?board.id=Wireless_Routers&message.id=46517

then did the following which solved my problem!

I entered the MAC addresses of my wireless devices into the client table and made sure that all remaining entries where not of kind 00:00:00:00:00:00.
Apart from my valid MAC addresses (2 devices) i just had to enter 00:00:00:00:00:03, 00:00:00:00:00:04 and so on! The last entry in my table is
00:00:00:00:00:16.

That's it. Cheers

[French]

Bonjour,

la solution: pour mon problem est la suivante:
Apres les inscriptions des votre adresses MAC vouz entrez dans les lignes qui rester
adresses MAC qui sont different que 00:00:00:00:00:00.
Donc, si vous avez 2 adresses MAC la troisieme sera 00:00:00:00:00:03,
la prochain 00:00:00:00:00:04 .... juste a la dernier 00:00:00:00:00:16.

Voila!

My wii system can't connect to my wireless Internet. It has an error code of 51032. What does that mean? It has also been connected to my wireless before, it won't make the connection now


Check to see if your router has a firewall. It might be blocking the signal from the wii. The Wii can't work though firewalls from routers.

Also your router should have something called MAC settings. Get your wii MAC number and add it to your router's list of MAC users. You need to activate your routers MAC settings for this of course. Also any other wireless accessing devices (laptops etc) need to included via there MAC numbers in your routers MAC list.

I use a LINKSYS WRT54g2 so my info above should help.

My wii is not signing on line error code 51331 is a it says please help


Hello xklown777
This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:

1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?

Log into the router using the default IP (if you don´t know this, consult your router's manual for assistance). Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
WPA - PSK (TKIP)
WPA - PSK (AES)
WPA2 - PSK (AES)

2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:

From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

3. Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

The above steps usually resolve the problem. If the error message still comes up, there are other ways I can help you, but it would help if you could tell me the model number of your router, as some models have compatability problems with the Wii.

Hope this helps.

Changing nat on xbox live


I had this issue, and solved it recently. Everyone on the internet will tell you to forward ports, or disable the NAT setting, but these never worked for me. As I was about to give up and buy a new router, as a last resort I decided to call tech support. In about 3 minutes they fixed my problem, and it is much easier then port forwarding.

-First go into your 360 network settings and find its mac address.
-In the router settings move to the LAN tab.
-Then go to "dhcp leases".
-Under "current dhcp leases" your 360 should be listed (match the mac address)
-Make a note of the IP address listed for the 360, then delete that lease.
-Now Reserve a new IP address, enter in the MAC address and IP address you wrote down for the 360.
-Check the bypass firewall option (and give it a name if you want) and then add the new entry.
-On the same page, move up to "DMZ Host" find your new entry and click "apply"
-Click the option to reboot your SBG900, then restart your 360, and the NAT should be open.

I hope this helps, if I described it correctly it should be much easier then port forwarding, and more importantly, it should work.

Internet access with wireless


Hi,

Assuming that your laptop has a built-in WiFi Networking card (or even a USB or PCMCIA WiFi adapter), normally its a matter of setting your Network configuration to "Auto obtain IP address automatically". This could be done in your Control Panel/Networking Connections, right click on your wireless Networking, click on Properties, highlight Internet protocol (TCP/IP), click on the Properties button and tick "Obtain...".

In some instances you might need to key in the WEP or WPA security key if it has been enabled and set in your WiFi router, though it has been known to slow down connections. If on the otherhand the router has its MAC filter enabled, then you would need to add your laptop's WiFi MAC numbers to the list that the router would allow access to.

Should the above be not corrective of your concern, pls post back with the make & model of your router, laptop, and the WiFi adapter if external/add-on. Knowing your Operating System would also help.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Partial internet connections


Hi,

A quick workaround is to assign static/fixed IP address to the Compaq. Just follow the numbers listed on the Dell and simply add 1 to the IP. Example if Dell PC1 uses IP Add of 192.168.1.100 and PC2 uses 192.168.1.101 both with Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0 and Default Gateway of 192.168.1.1, then set the Compaq to 192.168.1.103, 255.255.255.0 & 192.168.1.1. Likewise, replicate the DNS Server numbers from the Dell to the Compaq.

If this does not work out for you or for some reason you prefer to have a DHCP assigned number, please post back, specific model of the Compaq, Operating System, the WiFi Networking card of the Compaq, security settings (WEP, WPA, MAC Filter) Further, please describe "partially working", what works and what doesn't.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back details as above requested or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
