Linksys E3000 router setup and troubleshooting

Updated on April 25, 2011

ksys E3000 is a powerful dual band wireless N router for smoother and faster video streaming. It also has a built in USB port to connect the storage device to the router. You can connect USB storage device upto 2 TB to the router and share the drive on all the computers and devices in the network.

This router comes with the Cisco connect software that you can use to install the router easily. This router also has Guest network access. Guest network is a virtual wireless network for the guest computers. The guest network always shows unsecured but it is secured wireless network. Anyone can connect to the guest network without a password but will be asked for the guest password when try to access the Internet.

You can not use Guest network without Cisco connect software. That means in order to use Guest network feature of the E3000, you will need to install your E3000 using Cisco connect software. If you change any wireless settings manually then Cisco connect software will stop working.

How to setup Linksys E3000 router manually

 You just need to access the router setup page and change the settings manually. Setup your wireless network using the web interface of the router. The default password of the router is admin. But you run the CD to setup E3000 then the wireless password will be the password of the router setup page. When you setup your E3000 router using the CD, it will create a wireless network for you automatically. It will also secure the wireless network with a strong password. At the end of the setup program you will find the wireless network name and the password for the router and the wireless network. You can use that password to connect to the wireless network on other computers. The type of wireless security will be WPA/WPA2 mixed security mode. If you have older wireless computer or devices in the network then you may need to change some settings manually on the router.

There are a lot of issues with the initial firmware of this router. Wireless connection dropping is the major problem with Linksys E3000 router. So I will advise you to upgrade/re-flash the firmware on your router. After upgrading the firmware on the router, reset the router and reconfigure it manually.

      I had hard time installing this router using setup CD. I did it manually. And yes I had to upgrade the firmware also even though it is brand new.
