  1. Thanks for your help. I am satisfied with the service that you offered. I was not able to access Internet through E4200 but when I connected computer directly to the modem, it was working. I upgraded the firmware and changed the advanced settings that you suggested. Now it is working working better than before.

  2. The router is very good but one of my laptop is not getting Internet when wireless. I can use this laptop in the office and other places and there is no issue. But when I try to connect to the wifi at my home, it is not working. I have another laptop and iPad at home which are connected and on the Internet. Now I am not sure if it is my laptop or the router which is causing the issue.

  3. Trying to get iPad on the wireless network but the security key is not working. I believe I have the correct security password because my other wireless computers are connected with the same password. I don’t know why it is not working on iPad. Can I connect my iPad to the guest network? I have the guest network password also. But I never used the guest network before.

  4. Where can I get manual for Linksys? I would like to change some settings on the router for security purpose. I do not want to install the cisco software because I want some advanced settings. I got it working on the wired computer but the wifi is not working. I can connect to the SSID but Internet is not working.

  5. I can not access the setup page. I did reset my Linksys router many times. The power light is blinking when I press the reset button but still I can not access the setup page using e4200 default password admin. I want to go through manual installation. I can not even run the cisco connect software because I have older desktop.

  6. How to setup E4200 wireless without CD? I have been trying to install it my DSL Internet connection and it is not connecting to the modem.

  8. I was trying to setup network at home. Just bought this model and tried to run the cisco software on my main computer. The computer is connected with Ethernet cable but the cisco software is not detecting the connection and says the device is not connected. If I connect the same computer directly to the modem, it works. Also tried to reset the device but same thing is happening.

  9. I was trying to setup wireless connection at my home. I have E4200. I am able to access the Internet on the wired desktop but the wifi laptop is not getting Internet. Also the Internet is working very slow on the wired computer. Works faster if I connect the desktop to the modem.

  10. I have been trying to setup my External USB HD so that I can access the drive and share it among the multiple computers.

All the computers are able to go on Internet.

  11. I have been trying to setup Linksys E4200 wireless router with the new DSL Internet connection. I can access the Internet when I connect the computer directly to the modem. I had Linksys WRT54G router before which died because of power surge. I want to upgrade to wireless N router and that is why I bought this one. But it is not working. Is there any compatibility issue with modem ?

  12. I was trying to setup my Linksys e4200 with the new DSL Internet provider. I tried to run the CD. It is asking me for the user name and password for DSL connection. I am not sure what that means. I called my service provider. They told me that there is no such password. I am using verizon FIOS.

  15. I tried to connect KX MB2025 panasonic printer to E4200 via USB port but it could not find the printer via wireless. How should I do? Do I have to change security to WEP instead? Then how could I change WAP to WEP? Can anyone suggest me? Alternatively, can I change the printer to WAP figure? Don’t understand what is what and how to do all these. Thanks

  16. I am trying to connect my old windows Xp laptop to my new E4200 wireless. I can see the wireless SSID but it does not connect to it. What could be the problem. My new computer is connected without any problem.

    1. Did you figure it out yet? Well, this reply is 3 months later, but I just had a similar question and called Best Buy who went and asked their Geek Squad. Windows XP has to always keep up with all of the latest Windows updates in order for the Linksys E4200 to work with your computer. The box says it is compatible with Windows 7, but will work with XP for as long as it has the latest updates.

  17. I have At&T DSL internet service provider. I can access the internet when I connect the computer directly to the modem but not through the Linksys E4200 router. I tried to run the Cisco connect software but that failed. How do I setup my E4200 manually. I can not access the setup page of the router.
