May I ask why you care about the lease time? All this does is indicate how long a computer holds an IP address via DHCP. If the computer is still connected it will merely renew an expired lease. One of the only situations you would care about the lease is if it were in a public location. In almost all situations default lease time is adequate

Can I safely disconnect my router at night for security reasons?


Disconnecting is your choice. No one will mind. Draw back is the possible loss of IP lease.

Go to Start > Search (Run in XP) and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /release ENTER. Then type ipconfig /renew ENTER. This just refreshes your IP. Test it.

My router keeps timing out


One of the things to check first, is IF it's your ISP, your internet provider. Many of them will close connections or set you to reset your DHCP lease frequently. I noticed you did say it works fine to the modem. Does it work fine to the modem for extended periods of time? Or does the same thing happen eventually? I have a routine I run if an ISP drops bandwidth or connection if your inactive for too long, or you can call them and demand a longer DHCP lease time if that's the factor. Many cable and router companies don't even check this before they start replacing equipment such as modems or routers. IF the same thing happens when you stay connected to the modem from the computer directly for say a whole day, then we have to start looking at other potential issues. I am following the problem. Feel free to comment or whatever. I will check back frequently. If you would like to work through this problem I will assist you. It will take troubleshooting and a few steps. It's just not that simple with 1000s of things that can go wrong. This computer/Networking stuff is not Rocket Science. If it was we would never make it off the earth as broken/unfinished products are shiped and sold daily. Software is flawed. You have about 10 different corporations with nothing but profit as there motive involved. Feel free to contact me or we can do it here as well.

Your Internet service provider is comcast cable company.
You need to open the setup page of the router and change the Internet connection settings manually.

Connect the computer to the router and modem to the router.
Open the setup page of the router using 192.168.1.1
Click on MAC address clone. Enable it and click save settings.
Power cycle the router and your main computer will be online.
Then you can change the wireless settings manually.

My ipad connects but drops wifi after a few minutes.. same with my cell phone..


Make sure you have enough DHCP leases authorized, and that the renewal/expiration is set for a long enough period of time.

Secondarily, these have a tendency to get warm and start flaking out. Make sure the router has good airflow and isn't near other heat producing objects. Use some canned air to blow out the cooling ports/holes. And, finally, when it happens, unplug the power for a moment, then reconnect it. A hard boot like that often clears whatever error is plaguing it at the time...until the next one.

IMO, this is the most problematic product Linksys has ever made.

I want to change my id user name & password for WRT120N. But I also can't find the program in my computer. Please assit me. Thanks,


In order to access your WRT120N control panel UNDER FACTORY SETTINGS, you must navigate to http://192.168.1.1 in your web browser.

According to Cisco's support site, the default username for the WRT120N will be NULL (left blank) and the password will be "admin".

Once you reach the control panel, navigate to the 'Administration' section, where you should be able to change your username and password.

NOTE: If this does not work, you may want to look into performing a factory reset of your device.

The router drops out every 15 to 30 minutes and must be reset by removing the power and re-connecting. What should I do?


Hello,
There are many reasons why this might be happening.. You could try the following steps..
1) Disconnect the power from router for a minute and reconnect and check. 2) Try changing the wireless channel and Network name and try re-connecting. 3) Check if there is an firmware update for your product and update if any update is available. 4) If none of the above steps work you will need to reset(a small button or hole at the back or base) and re-config your router. ( For that you need the CD given with the router and you will need the ISP settings.)
Hope this helped

DNS


If the Windows 2003 server is utilized as the DNS server, then yes it should be set to 192.168.1.5. You need to get into the Linksys router via http://192.168.1.1 and under DNS of DHCP if it is set to .1.1. You should be able to change it to .1.5.

How do I configure DHCP server on my wireless router?


Step 1 Open a web browser and type the IP address of the wireless router in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.1). Press Enter. Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK. Step 3 Click on the Home tab and then click on DHCP to the left. Note: If you are connecting to a DHCP server, the DHCP server on the wireless router should be set to Disabled. Step 4 By default, DHCP Server is set to Enabled. To disable it, click the Disabled radio button. To enable it, click the Enabled radio button. Step 5 Enter the Starting IP Address and Ending IP Address. To change the lease time, select a value from the drop-down list next to Lease Time. Note: The value for Starting IP Address must be less than the value for Ending IP Address. Step 6 Click on Apply then click Continue to save the settings.
