How many devices are connected regularly? You can drop the number of IP addresses to 30 (.02 to .30-33). This is my ISP wireless router suggested settings as typically all IP addresses for computers/devices connecting to wireless/LAN could still accommodate or acquire their dhcp addresses. Make sure that the guest network is also disabled if not used. The default settings for guest (open/unsecured) is enabled by default.
At most, 10 devices are connected. Regularly
, about 3 or 4 devices are connected. So I did bump it down to 30 IP addresses. Do you think I should go any lower? I know my laptop typically uses .121 (in the range .100 to .129)
When I first set up the network, I disabled guest access. And I just confirmed that it is still disabled.
With virtually any router on a market, they'll usually come a time when things just don't work as well as planned, and when troubleshooting comes into play, the blinking LED lights that are featured on most modern routers can be invaluable. The flashing LED lights featured on most routers indicate network activity, but unfortunately, the Linksys E1200 doesn't support this feature and troubleshooting on the Linksys E1200 will lead to many headaches.
It does have an LED at each of the ports. From my last reply, when I went to check the LEDs, I said that all LEDs were lit as usual. That included the "internet" port on the router (where the router is connected to the modem via a Cat5).
That article kinda made me cringe. For the record, buying this router was not at my discretion.
When your router has these issues what happens when you try going to 192.168.1.1? Do you get like a error 404 or anything or do you get the normal router interface?
The problems reappeared just a few hours ago. In answer to you question: I am able to connect as usual to 192.168.1.1. It prompts me for a username and password, and after entering them, I'm able to access the settings pages. I can also say that with this latest instance of the problem, it did
resolve itself...in about 5 minutes or less (I didn't keep a close eye on it).
Have you gone and searched for a firmware update at linksys? What version of firmware are you running? All of this can be seen after you access the router typically at 192.168.1.1 in the web browser in the right corner.
Well done. I could have sworn I checked the firmware update page within the last few weeks. But apparently 2.0.06 (Build 6) was released on 8/28. I'm running 2.0.05 (Build 2). One more thing to add to my to-do list
I might post a pic of my router's label, because honestly, I've always been a bit skeptical about whether or not I'm interpreting it correctly. There's a little "v2" in-line with the model number, but they're really far apart. I'm probably just being paranoid
if you have the latest one you could try a DDWRT 3rd party firmware. I notice there is 2 versions e1200 v1 and e1200 v2 that can be flashed with DDWRT.
That's certainly something to consider. And my warranty is already expired
At this stage it's probably your only option other than junking it. Linksys more than likely ended support on it and I read Linksys was bought out.
I can't thank you two enough.
