Cannot disable firewall during setup processing MN 500

I'm trying to setup MN500 using software. After I plugged modems, setup told me "setup has successfully detected your base station." I put all wireless network name, password, etc... then when I click next, it tells me
"if I have any firewall or internet security software, turn off, then restore the factory setting." I did disable all firewall, I even delete McAfee anti-virus program, then restored factory setting which is press and hold small hall as it instructed. However, it keep asking me samething over and over and now I'm stuck.

Go to the link below and scroll down to the bottom of the page and download the MS Broadband Network Utility. Run that one as opposed to the one on the cd. http://kbalertz.com/814445/Update-Firmware-Station.aspxher

An error occurs during installation


The CD Setup wizard will fail to complete the installation or sometimes fail to run at all because antivirus, anti-spyware or PC firewall is blocking the installation process.

To ensure a successful installation from the CD Setup Wizard, make sure all security tools are temporarily disabled before the installation begins. Enable back the antivirus, anti-spyware or software firewall once the installation is completed.

NOTE: If setup still fails to complete, check that you have selected the correct operating system in the setup options. You may also try restarting the computer and reinstalling from the CD if the setup fails to complete the first time. If all else fails, try searching for your device model at http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/ and clicking on Get Downloads to download the latest firmware.

I just signed up with at&t for wireless service and my connection keeps dropping after a couple of minutes. i have a MN-500 router and DSL service. as long as i only have my Dell PC connected directly...


Hi... If your running on XP, try theses simple steps:

1. Right-click the wireless icon on the taskbar (lower 2. Left-hand corner near time) and View available networks.

3. Left-click the "change advance settings"

4. A windows should pop up... now go to wireless tab and tick or bullet point "Let windows manage wireless connections"

5. Then click apply. Then try to connect to your wireles router again.

If the wireless tab doesn't appear, the click start and Run then type services.msc then click OK.

Double-click Wireless zero configuration and set it to automatic then press apply and click start to start the service. Then try to do the instructions again.

If you're running on Vista, disable the wireless software provided by your wireless card manufacturer to enable windows to manage wireless networks. Then try to connect to your router again.

Hope it helps!

^_^

The base station just won't power up - no matter


You either have a bad cable or the unit has an issue. Don't know if this thing has a fuse in it or not, but if the cable is good (check by metering it out) then your next step is to see if it has a fuse. I'm willing to bet it does not in which case your stuck buying something new that does power up.

Caanot establish connection from MN-500 to internet


I don't think it's your router or your computers. If you just replaced your modem it has to be the problem. If it is a DSl Modem you have to imput you account username and password. If it's a cable modem you have to call the cable company and tell them you have a new modem. Which every it is you need to contact your Internet service provider, they are the ones who can help you.

MN-500


You really shouldn't need the CD. It should be plug and play. Plug the modem in. Plug the router into the modem. Plug your pc into the router. Power up your PC. It should self install.

Internet Connection


You know it is not your connection nor is it your modem. Contact your isp and ask them to release and renew your ip lease. Then connect the router and retry. Should be good. Otherwise contact Microsoft

(800)936-3900,
choose 1 from the confusing menu. The line is free, open 24/7 and there is no
waiting. The best part is that they are very knowledgeable and helpful

Loosing Connection between MN500 & MN520


If you are using XP, and installed the proprietary WiFi software (not the built in XP software), did you turn off the Zero Configuration Wifi SERVICE? Running both will cause issues with your connections..

Start > Run > services.msc (ok)
