Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
a-2.4 GHz interference: Your router may be operating on the same frequency as your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors'), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router's channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
b-Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.
  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.

  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. We suggest changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
1)To change the router's SSID or the wireless network's name, click here.
2)To change the router's channel, click here.
3)To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, it could mean that your firmware is corrupted. For instructions to reload or upgrade firmware, click here.

I think is better to configure your router again, so you can set the router to keep alive every time.

Where do you get cisco connect


Cisco connect is the software that comes with the router.
You might have installed the Cisco connect software while installing your router for the first time.
Once you open the Cisco connect software for E1000, you will find the password to access the wireless network.
If you have not installed Cisco connect then you can open the setup page of the router and check the wireless settings.

I use a Cisco Wireless-N Router E1000 to connect wirteless laptop. The Cisco is connected to the main router to internet. IP internet router is 192.168.1.254 The Cisco router is 192.168.1.1 The laptop...


I'm confident that having both routers distributing the same subnet is causing a conflict.
You should change the Cisco router to 192.168.2.1. and let it deliver IP addresses by DHCP.

That should do the trick.

I'm unsure of the exact part number here but using the model number I checked the manual. This looks like it's just an access point which extends a current network you have. If you only have your laptop, this device and your internet modem it may not give you the wireless connectivity you're looking for. On a normal setup you would plug your modem into a router, plug your laptop into the router and set it up with all your DSL/Cable connection information as well as wireless on/off. You can then unplug from the router and continue life. with this one it's only connecting to an existing setup (another router or another wireless network) and extending it.
If you are looking for a solution to give you a router that connects to your modem and gives you wireless or adding multiple devices on a single connection I would recommend returning this and getting an all-in-one router such as this: http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E1000-Wirelessn-router_stcVVproductId97826160VVcatId551966VVviewprod.htm?icid=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn&src2=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn

My linkys e1000 is connected to my desktop internet, but not my laptop. how do I get that to work?


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

Can't get laptop to connect


check the wireless settings of the router. The wireless security might be set to WPA2/WPA mixed. Open the cisco connect software and check the wireless settings. If you are not able to change the settings using the Cisco connect software then you change the settings manually by opening the set up page of the router.
