How to Set up Guest Network Access in Linksys EA4500 Router



If you own an EA4500 Dual-Band N900 router with Gigabit and USB, you might already have a fair idea about its features and utilities. The brand new Linksys router besides being stylish offers excellent wireless coverage, throughput, and powerful & strong signals etc. Among other things that the router offers is the set up of a guest account for network access. Yes, you can set up a guest access to let a guest of yours to connect to the guest wireless network without interfering with your main wireless network and configurations. Check the steps given below: (See Also Linksys router support)

1. Connect your computer directly to your Linksys router using the Ethernet cable. When done, open your web browser and type ‘192.168.1.1’ (default IP address) in its address bar. Hit Enter to continue.

2. On the login screen, enter your router’s username and password and click OK. If you never set up a custom password, enter the default one. The default password is ‘admin’; however you must check your Linksys router setup documentation for the same.

3. If you have lost your custom password, you will need to hard reset your Linksys router. When logged in, you will see the Cisco Setup screen. Click the Wireless tab> Guest Access. Click the Yes radio button beside Allow Guest Access.


4. Note down the guest network name (SSID) using which the guest will connect to your main wireless network. If you want to change the guest password, click the Change button beside Guest Password. Enter the desired password and click Change.

5. Do not forget to note the guest account SSID and password on a piece of paper to avoid the risk of loss. Make sure the SSID Broadcast option is set as Enabled. Click the Save Settings button to save your changes. See also how to access Linksys router login.

6. You can set up 10-50 guest accounts on your Linksys EA4500 router. Exit the router’s interface if you are done. Give out the details of the guest access to the guest user. The method of connecting to the 
 wireless guest network (SSID) remains the same as you connect to your main  wireless network.

How to Troubleshoot a Linksys Wireless Router


Chances are that some time during the time that you own your Linksys wireless router, you will experience some problems with it. For example, the wireless router may fail to connect to the Internet or the wireless network interface controllers (NICs) on the computers may fail connect to the Linksys router. In other cases, the NICs may connect to the Linksys router and your home network but not the Internet. When these issues happen, there are simple steps you can take to troubleshoot your wireless network connection.


Instructions

1.      Turn off your broadband cable or DSL modem. Unplug the Linksys wireless router from the power. Wait at least 30 seconds, then power the modem back on. Wait another 30 seconds, then plug the wireless router back into the power outlet.
2.      Attempt to connect your computer to the Internet and to the wireless local area network. If the connection fails, type the IP address 192.168.1.1 in a browser address bar and press "Enter." Type in the username and password to your Linksys router if necessary.
3.      Check the wireless router settings under the "Setup" tab in the Linksys wireless router configuration utility. Re-enter your Internet access username and password when prompted. Save the settings at the bottom of the window.
4.      Click the "Wireless" tab. Change the channel that the Linksys wireless router uses to communicate with the wireless access points on your network. If the Linksys router is Wireless N and you have other computers with wireless G or B access points, change the "Radio Band" setting from "Wide 40MHz Channel" to "Standard 20MHz Channel." This step can help to correct problems with the wireless access points connecting to the network yet failing to find the Internet.
5.      Select the "Security" tab. Under "Internet Filter" ensure that "Filter Anonymous Internet Requests" and "Filter IDENT (Port 113)" are checked. Uncheck "Filter Multicast" and "Filter Multicast." Under "Web Filter," ensure that none of the items is checked. Click the "VPN Passthrough" tab directly under "Security." Ensure that all items in this Linksys configuration window are enabled.
6.      Select the "Access Restrictions" tab. Remove any access restrictions in this section that are preventing your network from functioning properly.
7.      Click "Applications and Gaming." Select "Port Range Forwarding." Add the application names and port ranges of any applications such as BitTorrent and gaming applications that won't run properly on your network. Select the desired protocol (TCP is the most common.) Click the Start button and and type "cmd" in the "Search programs and files" text box. A command-line window opens. Type "ipconfig" at the command prompt. Copy down the number displayed as the IP Address or IPv4 Address in the resulting text displayed. This is the address of your computer. Enter this number under "To IP Address."
8.      Visit the Linksys website. http://techbuddiesonline.com/Pages/Linksys_support.aspxClick the "Support" tab. Search on the model number of your Linksys wireless router. Under "Downloads and Drivers" select "Get Downloads." Click the download link below the Linksys wireless router image and description to download a firmware upgrade for your router. Check your user manual for your Linksys router for instructions on installing the firmware upgrade. If you have lost your manual, you can download a new one from the Linksys website.
9.      Find the reset button on the back of your Linksys wireless router if these steps fail to get your network working again. Push a pen or pencil point into the button and hold it for about 10 seconds.

How to Fix Linksys EA2700 Wireless Router



Brief review of the Linksys EA2700 Router, which is replacing an older WRT110.

It was time to upgrade my older Linksys WRT110 router with a newer model.  Linksys has a busy array of products, each at a slightly different price point.  I chose the Linksys EA2700 Dual-band N600 Router with Gigabit.  I recommend this product, with minor reservations, described below.

Features:
  • Wireless N for newer laptops
  • Wireless a/b/g for older laptops
  • 2.4ghz + 5ghz dual, simultaneous bands
  • 4 wired gigabit ports
  • Instant Guest Access
  • IPV6 support
  • $100

The real reason for choosing the router was, oddly, for IPV6 support -- which nobody, including me, cares about*.  Starting with Windows Vista, and then 7 and 8, the operating system was configured with IPV6 (a new IP standard). 

This was enough to drive the old router nuts because each time a new laptop arrived on the old home network, it crashed the router with an "unidentified network error."  The solution for this is documented in this keyliner article:  Windows 7 Network Problems  -- but I was tired of making the same registry changes when new computers were introduced.  I suspected a newer router would fix the problem.  I was right.

Having a speedier Wireless N and faster gigabit ports (for a future NAS) also drove the upgrade. The EA2700 was the minimum model with gigabit and it was at my price-point of $100. 

ConfusingProduct Comparisons:

Cisco has purposely built a number of products, each with different features at different prices.  This carefully planned strategy extracts the maximum dollars from informed customers.  With each slightly more expensive model, they add one more interesting feature. 

For an average consumer, figuring out which to purchase should be a challenge and most would purchase solely on price.  Asking the store's help might not be helpful because the clerks were as confused as I was and the best they could do was to spout statistics from the back of the box.  After some pondering, I managed to combine a dozen pages on Linksys's site, into one chart.

How to Fix Linksys/Cisco E4200 problems?


All the problems started when I upgraded from a WRT54G (never had a problem with this router over several years) to the E4200 (v1.1.02)  a couple of months ago. No problems with any of the wired connections of course, but all my wireless 2.4 GHz connections had problems immediately -- decreasing signal strengths (no matter how close to the router) and eventual loss of connectivity.  I tried all the conventional solutions like switching channels, checking for interference, moving the router to "higher ground" where it could vent heat better (this baby really runs hot)  and be unobstructed,  etc., but the only thing that would cure the problem was to reboot the router, usually once or twice a day.   I checked the forums and found that lots and lots of folks were experiencing this behavior. I finally discovered that if I disabled the 5gz band the 2.4 GHz connections would no longer be dropped (by the way, once they're dropped, the only way to get back is to  reboot the router; eventually the router state is such that nothing can connect to it).  Still tends to have signal strength loss over time but at least we're running consistently.  The other problem I'm experiencing is that if I get more than about 30 - 35 feet away, there is a significant decrease in signal strength.

I bought this router for (1)  the gigabyte ports for my wired machines; (2) increased signal strength for my wireless devices at greater distances; and (3) the dual band capability to handle the 5 GHz spectrum as those devices become more prevalent.  Well, 1 out of 3 is pretty pathetic performance for what is a relatively expensive high end router from a  company that until now I had a confidence in their ability to produce technically sound hardware.

I may be way off base here, but based on over 40 years experience in IT, this appears to be part of a larger trend where the bottom line seems to be dicating the rush to market of inadequately tested hardware and software.

Linksys/Cisco -- can you please acknowlege these problems and what the current plan and timetable is to fix.  The E4200 has been in the market place for a while now and I still don't see a firmware upgrade.
