Ipaddress blocked with firmware 2.10 or 2.00

I have a situation where I have 5 network devices connected through a linksys switch that are connecting to a DWL-2100AP. The 2100ap is replacing a 900ap that has been working for over 3 years. The only reason I'm replacing it is because the 900 is starting to fail. When this is connected with the 2100 I am able to connect to my wireless network and ping my servers that I need to get to. But when I try to connect to 2 of the devices (both network printers with static ip's) they do not respond. I have gotten this to work in situations with 4 ip devices but not this one. Anybody have any ideas?

Try reseting the linksys! I am not super sure but I think that all of those devices are sucking the power out of the linksys. Again I am not 100% sure but try resetting!

My DHCP is not assigning a dynamic address to one of my seven wired devices. I've had to switch over to a stati

On the second router just plug a port cable in from your main routers port into the wan port and then be sure to change the second routers gateway and IP address to a different number. Say that your main router IP is 198.18.1.1 and for your second router IP you could use 10.10.10.1 or what ever combo you want and then you should be able to use both routers together. Is this what you are trying to do?
Linksys routers as well as all routers with DHCP enabled should be able to handle up to 255 separate IP address's for a LAN network. Is the firmware of the Linksys the latest? If not, down load the latest firmware and flash the router to update it. Or, check out third party firmwares like Tomato to flash that tired Linksys and turn it into a real router.

Top Causes of Intermittent Wireless Connection to a Linksys Router

There are three key reasons that may be cited why the wireless connection between your Linksys router and your computer is intermittent or is experiencing timeouts.
i. You have a low signal quality received from your wireless router.
ii. You are experiencing signal interference from other wireless devices.
iii. Your router's firmware needs to be upgraded.
You have a low signal quality received from your Linksys wireless router.
The location of your wireless router with respect to your computer greatly influences your connection to the wireless network. For a better signal quality, it is ideal that the wireless router is placed in a central spot of your house or on a location free from any obstruction blocking its range.
To determine the signal quality received from your wireless router, you must connect to the wireless network first.
NOTE: For instructions on how to connect wirelessly to your Linksys router, click here. If you're using a Mac computer, click here.
Once connected, check the signal strength received by your wireless adapter or Airport for Mac users. The recommended signal strength should be closest to full bars to have the best connection possible.
You are experiencing signal interference from other wireless devices.
The frequency used by your router's wireless network may be 2.4 GHz, 5GHz or both. Some devices may also be using the same frequency and this causes the interference to the wireless network of your Linksys router. The most common examples are cordless phones, microwave ovens and baby monitors. Another possibility of frequency interference is that there may be other wireless networks in the area. Your frequencies may be conflicting with each other.
To solve this, turn off the device that is possibly causing the interference or relocate your router away from it. Another solution is to change the current wireless network channel which is set in your router's settings. For instructions on how to do this, click here.
Your router's firmware needs to be upgraded.
If you are having unstable connection and have confirmed that the previous causes are irrelevant, then you may have to upgrade your Linksys router's firmware. For instructions on how to do this, click here.



Encountering Intermittent Wireless Connections Using a Router

Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
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.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
  • 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.

    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 run 3 computers connected to the internet using the Linksys EtherFast EZXS55W 5x10/100 switch. Switch is connected to COX cable broadband. Any issues with "crashing" on this switch? Seems...

Hi, I would recommend downloading the latest firmware for this device and then se if your "crashing" goes away.
If you plug directly into the cox modem do you have problems?
If that doesn't work I would replace the Cat 5e network cable from the switch to the cox modem.
If that doesn't work replace the coax cable from the cox modem.
If you continue to have issues replace the switch.

I have a Linksys 5-port switch connected to a cox cable modem and I'm trying to use it to connect two computers at the same time. Only one works at a time and I have to reset the switch and modem to get...

Because the cox cable modem will only bind to one mac address (computer). You need to purchase a router, any router linksys, dlink, will do, get a wireless one so you can setup wifi as well. Plug your cox cable modem into the wan port on the router, plug your pc into one of the ethernet switch ports, you can use your web browser IE to login to the router and secure your wifi signal, power cycle your modem to make it bind to the new router. Most linksys dlink are programmed for a class c network, you could in theory put 254 devices, computers on your connection now.

If not then connect the computer to the router. If you are connecting a wireless computer then disable the wireless connection on the computer. open the set up page of the router. change the wireless network name to something different that you never used before. change the standard channel to 11. save the settings. Try to connect to the wireless network. Check if you see the new network name ? If you see the new then try t connect and see if that works.
This router WRT160N has issues with the firmware.

If you are not connected to the Internet and both PC's are trusted and you want to network them. The easiest solution would be to disable the firewall on both machines since there's no need to block anything. You may also need to enable file sharing on the Vista machine under networking.If this is going to be a permanent setup and you don't plan on adding any other devices I would exchange the Switch w/ a crossover cable connected into each other to save on electricity.

Internet connection problems using the BEFW11S4

If you are having problems connecting to the Internet, follow the following steps: 1. Internet service: Check with your Internet Service Provider to make sure that service is active. You usually can determine a good link to the service if you can bypass the BEFW11S4, plug directly into the ISP modem unit, and get a good connection. This will narrow the issue down to either the service, or the router. 2. Network cables: Verify that the network cables that connect the network together are plugged into the current ports as they should (modem into the WAN/Internet port, computers into 1, 2, 3, or 4). Also try to change some or all of the network cables that attach to devices coming from the BEFW11S4. You may have bad cables. 3. Router configuration: Your router may not be configured to use your Internet service properly. While plugged into your provider?s modem and able to get online, run the bundled Router Setup Wizard CD-ROM program that came with your router. This will configure the router automatically for you. Note: this program must be executed on the main computer when plugged directly into the providers modem unit and able to get on the Internet 4. Manual configuration: If the Setup Wizard CD-ROM from Step 2 fails to configure your router, you may need a manual configuration. While plugged into the provider modem unit and able to get online, visit http://kb.linksys.com, and search for the name of your Internet service provider for detailed instructions on manual configurations. 5. Router firmware: Upgrade your router to the latest firmware version. Please go to http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest version of firmware for your product. After the upgrade, be sure to reset the router, by holding in the router?s reset button for 30 seconds and reconfiguring it for use with your service (Step 3 or Step 4). 6. Malfunctioning equipment: You may have a faulty network adapter, or a bad router. Please contact Linksys Technical Support for further assistance.
