The LEDs on the Linksys WRT110 are the following:
Power (Blue) - The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the router is powered ON.
Ethernet 1, 2, 3 and 4 (Blue) - These numbered LEDs that correspond with the numbered ports on the router's back panel serve two (2) purposes: (a) The LED continuously lights up when the router is successfully connected to a device through that port, (b) If the LED is flashing, the router is sending or receiving data over that port.
Internet (Blue) - The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection through the Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.
Wireless (Blue) - The Wireless LED lights up when there is a wireless connection. If the LED is flashing, the router is sending or receiving data over the wireless network.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (Blue/Amber) - The Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) LED lights up blue when wireless security is enabled. The LED lights up amber if there is an error during the WPS process. Make sure the wireless client device supports WPS. Wait until the LED turns OFF and then try again. It also flashes amber when a WPS session is active and a second session begins. Wait until the LED turns OFF before starting the next WPS session.
You should check and do the following:
Check if the router is powered ON. If not, connect the power adapter to the router's Power port, and then plug the power adapter into a power outlet.
Hardwire a computer to the router, and then access its web-based setup page. Click Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings > SSID Broadcast. If the SSID Broadcast option is set to Disabled, click Enabled then click Save Settings.
Identify if your wireless adapter supports 802.11g, 802.11b or 802.11n protocol by checking the Device Manager or the adapter’s documentation or manual. If not, change your wireless adapter to make sure it can support these protocols.
There are four (4) key reasons why the wireless connection between your Linksys router and your computer is intermittent or is experiencing a dropping connection. These are low signal quality received from your wireless router, lowering the MTU size, frequency interference from other wireless devices, and router’s firmware needs upgrade.
To know more about these causes of dropping connection on a Linksys router, click here.
Access the router's web-based setup page. Go to Administration tab > Firmware Upgrade. Click Browse and select the file to upgrade and then click Start to Upgrade.
NOTE: Do not unplug, reset or power cycle the router until upgrading is complete.
Yes. To know how to upgrade the Linksys router's firmware, click here for instructions. A new firmware adds numerous fixes and enhanced functionalities to the router.
It supports DynDNS.org and TZO.
It supports six (6) Internet connection types: Automatic Configuration - DHCP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP, Telstra Cable, and L2TP.
Yes. The default starting IP Address is 192.168.1.100.
You can have up to 20 static routes.
Netscape 4.7 or higher, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari® browsers can be used.
The Radio Band gives you two (2) options: Standard - 20MHz channel and Wide - 40MHz channel. Standard Channel will be used by the Wireless B/G/N devices. If you select Wide channel for the radio band setting, then Wireless-N can use two (2) channels: a primary one (Wide Channel) and a secondary one (Standard Channel). This will improve Wireless-N performance.
No. The router has no hardware or software SES push button.
An SRX wireless adapter will ONLY operate at regular 802.11g speeds.
Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will require you to register a MAC Address in order to access the Internet. If you do not wish to re-register the MAC Address with your ISP, you may assign the MAC Address you have currently registered with your ISP to the router using the MAC Address Clone feature. If you want to clone the MAC Address of the computer you are currently using to configure the router, click the Clone My PC’s MAC button. The router will automatically detect your computer’s MAC Address so you do not have to call your ISP to change the registered MAC Address to the router's MAC Address.
NOTE: It is recommended that the computer registered with the ISP is used to perform MAC Address Clone for router configuration.
Port Forwarding allows you to set up public services on your network such as web servers, FTP servers, email servers, or other specialized Internet applications.
The Linksys WRT110 supports RIP/RIPv2 dynamic route protocol and 20 static routes.
Port Triggering will forward port based on the incoming port specified. Check with your software application to find out what necessary port specified on the incoming port field. You can setup up to 10 rules.
The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) allows one local user to be exposed to the Internet for use of special purposes such as Internet gaming and videoconferencing. The Port Forwarding feature is more secure because it only opens the ports you want to have opened, while DMZ hosting opens all the ports of one computer for the Internet to see it.
The Linksys WRT110 supports three (3) network modes: 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.
Wireless access can be filtered by using the MAC Addresses of the wireless devices transmitting within your network's radius.
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) allows the later Windows operating systems to automatically configure the router for various Internet applications such as gaming and videoconferencing.
