    I can only connect with laptops, not other devices like iphone or mobile phone. I have read the instruction on internet and tried to reset my iphone, but it doesn't work. It still said "unable to join the network". What can I do to solve it?

    If a laptop is able to connect to the network then that is a good way of knowing that the router is working. If you have setup the router's network name same as your previous router or a network name where your handheld devices had connected to before it will give you the error "unable to join the network".

    What you can do to add them to your new network is to "forget the network" in order to connect and be prompted for your network password. It wouls also be best to use wpa2 personal (AES) as your wireless security mode.

    You make sure the router has the recent version of the firmware, http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/support/routers/E1200

    Also, for the wireless connection, i suggest you modify the wireless settings; create a different SSID, select a specific wireless channel not just leaving it on auto then use WPA2 personal for the security.

    Hi,

    For this, you can isolate the concern by using another Ethernet cord. If using another cord would not help, reset the router. If the same thing is happening after a reset, perform a firmware upgrade. Connect one of your computers hardwired to the router and access the setup page to perform firmware upgrade. After doing the update, reset and reconfigure the router.

    In my opinion, it will be best to check if there is a new firmware update of that router from time to time. If there’s a new firmware available then proceed with the upgrade and reset the router afterward. You also need to play around with the router’s wireless settings to have a good wireless performance from the router.

    For the money I paid I cant really complain about this router but it didnt exactly provide quite as much speed as I initially expected. Maybe its because its not dual band or maybe my expectation of wireless N routers was just to high. Either way Id say that its decent for the money.

    DB:3.74:Amazon.Com: E1200 - It Not Bad... mz

    Speed on the router also depends on the capability of the adapter either wired of wireless. You could modify the wireless settings to optimize the wireless connectivity like changing the SSID(personalized), wireless channel to (3,6,9,11) and the wireless security to wpa2 personal.

    Even if you are just using an Ethernet cable, it is still not necessarily that it will be able to give you an automatic internet access. You still need to consider about the distance. What you can do though is to make sure that the computer’s Ethernet adapter has the latest drivers; the router has the latest firmware and you need to reset the router in each firmware upgrade.

    Did you try another computer or any wireless device on the router to see if it will get the same problem? Did you run and install the setup cd on your laptop? When you say "crashed completely", do you mean that laptop is not functioning anymore or the router? Please elaborate. In the mean time, you can reset the router for 10 seconds to take it back to default settings. You check also if the firmware is not updated because you can check Cisco's homesupport site for the updated/latest firmware for the router.

    If you would have to do an update, you'll reset the router for 10 seconds and then reconfigure it to work forboth wired and wireless internet connection. You refer to the links below that will help you with the setup.

    First thing to consider about this is the firmware of the router. If there is a new firmware available then proceed with the upgrade and reset the router afterwards. Next thing to consider is the link/card speed that the computer gets when the computer will be connected to the modem and the router. If there is no discrepancy with the link speed but there is a discrepancy with the actual internet speed; then there’s a possibility that there might be something wrong with the router. One thing you can do though is to adjust the MTU; try to check on this link:http://homekb.cisco.com/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1docid=fbf8e8564632422eaa8ea80bf9dcba64_386.xmlpid=80r... for further information on how to select the correct MTU that will be assigned to your router.

    You might need to reconfigure the wireless settings of your router. The settings would always depend on the type of wireless environment you have. Most of the time, wireless connection problem is cause by interference. It might be possible that neighboring wireless networks cause interference to the wireless connection you have. For that, you need to change the wireless channel. It is not an assurance always that the default settings would work into any type of wireless environment. We need to adjust the settings depending on the environment in order to achieve the wireless connection we want.

    The E1200 came on time, was very easy to hook up and get going. Unfortunately, the range of the E1200 is the worst I have ever seen. I have used in the past an older Westell a/b/g wireless router and currently using the Linkysys X2000 wireless N-router which both had much better range. Reception drops one bar (out of 3) every 10 feet. I can't leave the room the router is in or I lose reception. It may be my house or the amount of interference in my neighborhood, but what's the purpose of wireless if you can't use it in adjacent rooms. Probably a very good wireless router for single room apartments.

    I’ve been reading through Linksys’ Community Forums and have encountered issues like this. Most of the time what fixes issues like this is a reset and reconfiguration. Setting up the router’s Channel Width to 20 Mhz only and selecting a static channel like 1, 6 or 11 fixes intermittent issues and low signal issues. Also making sure the router has the latest firmware will prevent such issues.

    Are you having intermittent connection issue wired and wireless to the router? If so, check if your internet connection directly to the modem is stable. If modem's connection is fine then it is a router problem. Aside from updating its firmware, you reset the router and reconfigure. You lower down the MTU size as well. If you have Cable internet, use 1365 and use 1472 if you are on DSL. For the wireless, set your own SSID and set the channel to something else not just AUTO. You can use 1, 3, 6, 9, or 11. Enable the Wireless Security as well. You can use WPA2 Personal with your own preshared key or passphrase. The router should not be on the floor or ontop or under other devices like your modem. It should not be placed as well on metallic surfaces as it creates electrical noise. Set the router on a higher location like on top a shelf and away from other wireless devices as well like wireless phone base/s.

    The reason why wireless connections fail is almost always due to wireless interference.With the number of wireless networks running simultaneously, the frequency becomes too crowded. The connection then becomes intermittent and eventually crashes. This can be easily addressed by tweaking some settings specifically the wireless channel that the network is set to. It is recommended to use a tool like the inSSIDer. This handy tool will give a sneak peek into the wireless network topology in your area. Select a good channel (the one that's least used) to set your network on and your wireless connection should be more stable.

    Make sure that you are using the correct power adapter or might as try to use another power adapter. Reset the router(you can try the 1 minutereset or the 30-30-30 reset) and check if it will detect the computer. You can also try the following steps:

    •Assign a static ip address on the computer

    •Disable firewall or anti virus on your computer

    •Lower the speed of the computer’s NIC card to 10 half duplex

    •Download the router’s firmware and the TFTP Utility (select version 4 to find the utility):http://community.linksys.com/t5/Wireless-Routers/EA2700/m-p/629720(select version 4)

    •Run the TFTP Utility and it will now ask you to enter the router’s ip address (192.168.1.1) and the location of the router’s firmware

    •If successful try to ping the router and if not then return the router and have it replaced.

I've had a linksys wrt54g for almost 10 years, and it's been wonderful, it was finally crapping out a bit and I would have to do a reset once a week to keep it going. Sadly this router has significantly slowed my connection. Download time has quadrupled. I've given it a try and it's been about 20 days... and I think I'm going to have to return this. I will probably seek out the same model I used to have since that seemed to work.

    Theoretically this range extender will repeat the signal of a router for better network coverage. There are a lot of things to consider why there’s a problem with the wireless connection. It could be the network topology or the location of the wireless devices, it could be the wireless settings set on the router, it could be the firmware currently used by the range extender or it could be the compatibility of the device. Now to eliminate/lessen those limitations, then you need to do the following:

    This wireless dual band adapter can get up to 300 MBPS connection depending also on the router that it is connecting to. If your router is N or dual band then it should suppose to get up to 300 MBPS connection. Try to change the wireless channel of your router to 11 and use WPA2 security. Try to isolate also by checking your other wireless devices if they can get more than 54 MBPS connection from your router. You may need to update also the drivers for the AE2500 router which you can download from the website: http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/adapters/AE2500.

    I bought this item thinking I was buying a good product for a good deal. However, you get what you pay for. The cable guy that came to see why my internet kept cutting out, this is a very old model, and I'm sure ten years ago this router would have did wonders, but it is not up to speed at all. I regret buying it. Pay the extra money for the new updated ones. This is a very old model and can not keep up with the latest technology to give you good streaming speed.

    Hi there. Did you try to resolve the issue like reset or upgrading the firmware? You might have to try that. It is best as well to update the firmware of the router then reset and reconfigure. You can use the cd that came with it or do it manually. Regarding slow internet access, you can try to lower down the mtu size which you can ask your internet provider about the correct size to use on the router. And of course, internet connection to the modem should be verified if stable or just the same. I have few links below that you use.

    The maximum distance that this router can cover is up to 300 meters or approximately 1000 feet (source: Link). 2600 square feet is equals 241.5479 square meters. This might work in your house. Make sure that the router is placed in an open and well-ventilated area for better coverage. Consider as well interferences that might affect the signal and speed that you can get from the router (e.g. walls, other wireless devices operating on the same frequency as the router, other neighboring wireless networks, distance, physical obstructions).

    DB:2.82:Amazon.Com: E1500-Rm - Very Bad x7


    The wireless settings on the router can be changed in order for the wireless connection to improve. You can try the following: channel width: 20Mhz only; channel: 1, 3, 6, or 9; security: WPA2 Personal. Make sure as well that the adapter of your wireless computers or devices are up to date to get the maximum speed that you should get from the router. After changing the wireless settings of the router and making sure that the adapters are updated but still the connection has not improved, you can upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest version and reset and reconfigure the settings of the router. For further instructions in upgrading and reconfiguring the router, you may refer to these links: Upgrading the Linksys router’s firmware Setting up your Linksys Wi-Fi Router without using the setup CD.

    This is disappointing for a product with the Linksys name on it. I bought this router for home use and found that the signal does not cover two rooms consistently. While the router's wired throughput was adequate, the wireless throughput was much lower. It couldn't serve a Roku device 12 feet away with enough bandwidth for downloading video. Did Linksys make this device ineffective by hiding the antenna inside it?

    DB:2.82:Amazon.Com: E1200 - Wireless-N: Not Very m7


    I believe the wireless needs to be re-setup there. Set Network Mode to Mixed, change the channel widht to 20 mhz only, use channel 1 or 6 or 9, and set the wireless security to WPA2/WPA Mixed Mode. Thosechanges should serve your Bluray well.

I have had this Linksys E1200 for 9 months and for the last 3 or 4 months I have fought it daily. It has to be reset at least 3 or 4 times while I am on the internet and even after a reset it is extremely slow. Takes forever to open a page. This is the first time this has happened with a router that I purchased (all Linksys). Always thought Linksys was the best but this model is not.

    Perhaps, you need to further isolate this problem. Have a computer connected to the modem w/in 24 hours (or so), then check if the connection is stable from there. Don’t forget to upgrade the router’s firmware and then reset the router afterwards in order for the router to have a better performance.

    You can change the wireless channel of the router. Try 1, 3, 6, 9, or 11. Make sure to use WPA2 security because that will make your connection speed faster on the wireless. You can use that type of security also only if your wireless adapter on your wireless computer or device is N-capable. If you've tried those and still did not make any difference, update the firmware of the router which you can download from homesupport.cisco.com.

    When you say it did not work, did you mean you encountered an error setting up the device or wasitabout not being able to get Internet going on the router? The setup process should be a breeze with the Cisco Connect software for the E1000. At times though, you simply could not getaway with manual setup. The key to setting up your router is knowing how your Internet connection (via the modem) works. If you have Cable service, check this out: Setting up a Linksys router with Cable Internet service. For DSL: Setting up a Linksys router for DSL Internet connection.

    Upgrading the router's firmware would also help with a lot of issues. This is to ensure bugs from the current firmware are addressed and fixed. Get the latest firmware from the E1000 Support Page.

    I didn't buy this at Amazon and probably should have so I'd have better information. My old Linksys G 2.4GHz was working just fine but I needed a little more range and assumed that if I "upgraded" to a new "N" router, that it would be at least as good and with an extender I'd certainly get the distance I needed. The salesperson at the big-box store seemed very knowledgeable and was "positive" that I'd be happy with this strategy. The salesperson even talked me out of the more expensive Linksys system saying it was no better. I live in a small old house with lots of walls and even with the combination of the Linksys E1200 (N300) and the Linksys RE1000 extender, there was no where near the range and speed of my 10 year old Linksys G. Not sure whether to point fingers at the salesperson, or at Cisco for not making sure these folks know what they are talking about. Four trips later, it is all going back and I'm retreating to my Linksys G and just getting a longer Cat-5 cable to get it closer to the center of the house.

    the E1200 is a reliable router. however, the wireless setup can be a challenge. for you to get the most out of the device, you have to optimize the wireless settings. for starters, the channel width should be best set to 20MHz and a specific channel needs to be selected. you can use 1, 3, 6 or 9. also, for wireless security use wpa2/ wpa mixed mode or just plain wpa2 personal with aes encrytion for better securiy and faster speeds. with these changes, you'reguaranteed to get the best possible range and speed for your wireless connections.

The fix requires going into the advanced settings and changing a few things. If you're not comfortable having to (possibly) do that, look elsewhere.

    Sosomehow ithas something to do with comcast's connection speed, so to speak. I say then since the main source of the

    There are two major factors why your router is behaving this way: firmware issue or ISP is having the problem. You can check and observe the connection when connected directly to the modem. If it’s working fine, just make sure router’s firmware is updated, then you can reset it and reconfigure.

    Any Linksys router including the E1200 is independent of the operating system on which the computers connected to it are working. Be it Windows, Macintosh or Linux, the router should function without any problems. There are no specific configurations required on the router to make a computer with Linux OS work with the router.

    Since the computers were having problems connecting to the router then might as well hardwire the computer to it and check if it can get online. Upgrade the router’s firmware if there’s a new firmware update available and then reset the router afterwards. Reconfigure the router’s settings and check if the computer could connect to the router wirelessly.

    P.S. Make sure that the computer could also get online through the modem.

    Product shipped with standard factory refurbished label. That being said, this thing did not work. I ordered this and got the two-day shipping because it was for a time-sensitive project and cost was an issue. Upon installing it, I was not able to connect via the web interface to configure the device and the enclosed Cisco Connect software was unable to interface with the device. Based on the error screen that appeared after rejecting the username and password I entered, I determined that the unit had been loaded with a different firmware and never restored to Cisco firmware. This leads me to to believe that THIS PRODUCT WAS NOT REFURBISHED - IT WAS SIMPLY REPACKAGED AND SHIPPED TO ME AFTER BEING RETURNED BY SOMEONE ELSE! I have set up many routers and configured literally hundreds of networks in my time as a computer/network technician, so this was not an issue of "user error." I had to pay the difference out of my own pocket for a functional router from a brick-and-mortar store for four times the price of this piece of **bleep**.

    Will not be purchasing from this seller in the future. The only reason I gave it one star is because Amazon does not allow negative ratings.

    It is unfortunate that the router’s firmware has not been restored to the original stock firmware. As such it will be best to return the router and have it replaced since it will be hard to configure a different user interface.

    As what I've known the router works fine with apple devices, you just have make sure that the settings on the router are personalized like you have created your own SSID so with the channel also just a tip sometimes on a apple device you have to delete the old network before reconnecting.

    Upgrade the router’s firmware if there’s a new update available. Play around with the router’s wireless settings and use this tool: http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/ to select the best channel that you can user on your router. Check the link/card speed that your laptop would get when hardwired and wirelessly connected to the router because that will allow you to gauge on what exact internet speed will the laptop get when it is connected hardwire or wireless to the router.
