Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System

1 Answer

TCP/IP Failure Continuos beeping from GE Simon alarm. Loses it's ip address and gets a new one from linksys router every 5-10 minutes. Driving my wife and I nuts. Have tried giving the unit a static ip from router interface. Have tried the unplug restart thing countless times. Most solutions tried. Protect America just says to buy a d-link router. That their systems work best with them. Frustrated. Locked into a three-year contract.

    My SImon also has a TCP/IP problem that occured 5 days after installation. At the recommendation of Protect America,I have installed a new D-Link router, changed my internet connection protocol (because the D-Link could not figure out how to connect to a dedicated DSL line without a password), verified that my internet security program is NOT interferring with the router, and updated all applicable software. Protect America has sent a new Simon and it does exactly the same thing. Of course, they won't take it back and refund my money. Don't buy from Protect America without checking out their UNACCEPTABLE rating by the Better Business Bureau.

Unfortunatly you dont get somthing for nothing. what state are you located in? see there is somthing about a contract with no service. if your company does not perform then you shoul be let out of your contract. tell the if there system only work with d-link they should provided it. ask the to remotly program a static address into your system. it does not matter if your router is setup for a certain static IP if your panel is set to dynamic ip. make them fix it. its companies like this that give my industry a negitive view in consumers eyes. they need to fix your problem of step aside so you can find a company that will. Now GO Get Em.

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.

NOTE:
If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

The router's password can be changed by:



i. Running the router's setup CD. Click here to learn how to download firmware.
ii. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page. Click here to learn how to change password on the web-based setup page.

Unable to Access the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
Reset your router for 30 seconds. Try accessing again using the default IP address "192.168.1.1". If you are encountering problems accessing the router's web-based setup page, click here.

Linksys WRT54GX4 loses internet connection


Not a problem, you have to consider maybe other devices and or networks competing/interferring with your network. If you know how to enter the Linksys router menu I would 1. change the frequency the router operates on 2. change the channel the router will use 3. change the default password to something else besides the default.

All of the settings for your router out of the box are at default, wonder how many other people are running the same thing in your neighborhood? I always change from the default, you may also be receiving interference from devices using the same freq/channel as your router. Changing these will eliminate those possibilities.

Don't forget to encrypt your network, that is most important.

Linsky worked on Lan Line now I have Cable


Dynamic ip address is provided automatically by your internet service provider..
inorder for the linksys to work you need to remove the old configuration from the linksys.
you need to reset the router,look at back of the router you will see a hole which says reset
you need somethihg pointed like a paper clip or pin to hold it down for about 30 secs,then power off the router wiat for a minute and then power on the router,
now your linksys router should be able to take the dynamic ip address from you internet service provider.

System Low Battery Alarm


You can silence trouble beeps by arming and disarming the system or by pressing status button; however, trouble beeps resume after 4 hours if the trouble condition as not been fixed. You can turn the trouble beeps off in the programming option 40. This should be done by your security professional because any mistake you could change other parameters in the system and the system may not work correctly. Hope this helps

Your new laptop,

Are you searching for a new wireless network? Then your router doesn't show up on the list of networks?

I can rephrase if need be.
