Linksys E4200 Chapter 1: Product Overview Chapter 1: Product Overview Thank you for choosing the Linksys E4200 Maximum Performance Wireless-N Router . The router lets you access the Internet via a wireless connection or through one of its four switched ports . You can also use the router to share resources such as computers, printers and files . The router’s USB port connects to a USB storage device, so you can add storage space to your network using a USB hard drive or access your portable files using a USB flash disk . The router’s media server streams music, video, and photos from an attached storage device to any UPnP-compatible media adapter or player . Various security features help protect your data and your privacy while you are online . Security features include Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) security, which encrypts data on your wireless network; a Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall to help block unauthorized access to your router; and Network Address Translation (NAT) technology, which enhances network protection by allowing your computers to share Internet access through a single, public Internet IP address . (IP stands for Internet Protocol .) Setup and use of the router is easy using Cisco Connect, the software that is installed when you run the included CD . Advanced configuration of the router is available through the provided browser-based utility . For more wireless bandwidth, the router can create two simultaneous yet separate Wireless-N networks, one using the 5 GHz radio frequency band and one using the 2 .4 GHz band . For example, use the Wireless-N 2 .4 GHz network to surf, email, and print while keeping the less crowded, Wireless-N 5 GHz network free for time-sensitive traffic like Voice over IP (VoIP) calls, online gaming, and high-definition video . For more information, refer to “Simultaneous Networks” on page 10 . The Guest Access feature allows you to provide Internet access to guests visiting your home without granting them access to your local network . Top This light indicates power or Wi-Fi Protected Setup status . If you have client devices, such as wireless printers, that support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, then you can use Wi-Fi Protected Setup to automatically configure wireless security for your wireless network . To use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, refer to “Wi-Fi Protected Setup” on page 12 . Power (white) When the router is powered on, resets to factory defaults, or upgrades its firmware, the light flashes slowly (every three seconds) . When the router is ready for use, the light is continuously lit . If there is an error, the light flashes quickly (every second); disconnect the power adapter from your router, wait two seconds, and then reconnect the power adapter to your router . Wi-Fi Protected Setup (white) When the Wi-Fi Protected Setup process is active, the light flashes slowly (every two seconds) for two minutes . When the Wi-Fi Protected Setup is successful, the light is continuously lit . If there is an error, the light flashes quickly (every second) for two minutes; please wait and try again .

Cisco Linksys E4200 Manual Users Guide Setup And Troubleshooting - page 10
Linksys E4200 for installation, then the Device Name is the name of your wireless network (up to 15 characters) . Chapter 2: Advanced Configuration Manually Adding Client To manually assign an IP address, enter the client’s name in the Enter Client Name field . Enter the IP address you want it to have in the Assign IP Address field . Enter its MAC address in the To This MAC Address field . Then click Add and click Save Settings . DHCP Server Settings The settings allow you to configure the router’s DHCP server function . The router can be used as a DHCP server for your network . A DHCP server automatically assigns an IP address to each computer or device on your network . NOTE: If you choose to enable the DHCP server option, make sure there is no other DHCP server on your network . Clients Already Reserved A list of DHCP clients and their fixed, local IP addresses is displayed at the bottom of the screen . If you want to remove a client from this list, click Remove . Click Save Settings to apply your changes, or click Cancel Changes to clear your changes . To update the on-screen information, click Refresh . To exit this screen and return to the Basic Setup screen, click Close .

(The first IP address assigned by the router will be randomly selected within the range you specify .) Basic Setup > DHCP Server Settings DHCP Server DHCP is enabled by default . If you already have a DHCP server on your network, or you do not want a DHCP server, then select Disabled (no other DHCP features will be available) . DHCP Reservation Click DHCP Reservation if you want to assign a fixed local IP address to a specific device on your network . This is helpful if you have a device whose IP address must always remain the same, such as a media server or print server . To reserve an IP address for a specific device, select it from the list of devices or manually enter the Media Access Control (MAC) address of the device . Because the router’s default IP address is 192 .168 .1 .1, the Start IP Address must be 192 .168 .1 .2 or greater, but smaller than 192 .168 .1 .254 . The default Start IP Address is 192.168.1.100 . Maximum Number of Users The Maximum Number of Users specifies the number of IP addresses that can be assigned by your router when it functions as a DHCP server . This number cannot be greater than 253 . The default is 50 . IP Address Range The range of available IP addresses is displayed . Client Lease Time The Client Lease Time is the length of time that a dynamically assigned IP address will remain in effect . After this time is up, the device will be automatically assigned a new dynamic IP address, or the lease will be renewed . Enter the length of time, in minutes, that a user will be “leased” a dynamic IP address . The default is 0 minutes, which means one day . Static DNS 1-3 The Domain Name System (DNS) is how the Internet translates domain or website names into Internet addresses or URLs . Your ISP will provide you with at least one DNS server IP address . If, however, you wish to use a different DNS server, enter its IP address (you can enter up to three DNS server IP addresses) . These static DNS server(s) will have higher priority than the ISP’s DNS servers . The router will assign these DNS servers to the computers and other devices in your local network . DHCP Reservation The DHCP Reservation screen appears and displays a list of DHCP clients with the following information: Client Name, Interface, IP Address, and MAC Address . Basic Setup > DHCP Reservation Select Clients from DHCP Table Click the Select check box to reserve a client’s IP address . Then click Add Clients . WINS The Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) manages each computer’s interaction with the Internet . If you use a WINS server, enter its IP address . Otherwise, leave this field blank .
