Linksys WRT150N Wireless N Home Router with 4-Port Switch Mimo


The Access Point built into the Router uses the very latest wireless networking technology Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios, Wireless-N s Multiple In, Multiple Out (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce dead spots in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections up to 3 times farther than standard Wireless-G.

Question by stormcrow: How do I get my wireless router (Linksys) to talk to my dsl modem?
I have a Linksys “G” wireless router and a Motorola dsl modem and I cannot connect to the net via wireless. I had no problems with Comcast broadband using their modem and my (same) router. I have tried for the past year.

Answer by cdabexx
Did you run a lan cable from the dsl modem to your router? If so did you download the driver from the manufacturers website? Check these 2 things first.

    Awesome! But ONLY with DD-WRT, November 6, 2008

    This review is from: Linksys WRT150N Wireless N Home Router with 4-Port Switch Mimo (Personal Computers)

    Many of you have probably seen references to DD-WRT in other reviews and wonder what it is. It is a firmware upgrade to your router that was created by an opensource group called, as you may have guessed, DD-WRT. This upgrade is available only through their website, not through Linksys.

    >> Motivation

    Now first, why do you need DD-WRT? Because it transforms this router from a piece of junk into a high-performance wireless machine capable of almost seamlessly streaming high-definition video and high-speed Internet games.

    We had this router for about 2 months and were terribly frustrated with it. It constantly disconnected us and was just a lot slower than we had expected a Wireless-N router to be. Our Powerbook constantly got dropped from it, causing us to have restart the wireless connection several times a day.

    Frustrated, I looked up these Amazon reviews to see if there was something I missed. Then I found a review referencing DD-WRT. After some hesitation, I tried it and it worked. I checked our laptop and it worked fine for the first time since we got the router. However, then I went to Hulu to test the download speed and was blown away. The DD-WRT had turned our once-modest router into a freaking hulk. It now ran as fast wirelessly as it once did only when directly connected by ethernet.

    >> How to Install DD-WRT

    Now in my story above, I abbreviated the installation process. In reality, learning how to install this firmware took quite a bit more time than I felt it should have. And I am a Computer Science graduate student finished with my PhD coursework. I can’t imagine how intimidating the installation procedure must look to the average computer user.

    So I wanted to lay out the steps for this specific router so that people can reference it here on Amazon without having to waste their time browsing through documentation.

    First, you need to download the firmware file for the WRT150N (this router). It is a little harder to find than your average download:
    1. Go to the DD-WRT main site (google “DD-WRT”)
    2. Click Downloads
    3. Click v24
    4. Click Broadcom
    5. Click Linksys
    6. Click WRT150N_v1.1 (you should check the bottom of your router to make sure you have 1.1; you probably do)
    7. Click dd-wrt.v24_mini_generic.bin (you want the “mini” and “generic” v24)
    8. Save it

    Next, you need to reset the router to factory settings. This will erase all your settings so take screen shots of them if you need them. Otherwise, just reset them manually like you did when you first set up the router.
    1. Hold down the RED reset button on the back of the router using a pencil or pen for 10 seconds. The power light should start blinking then stop after a while.
    2. Unplug the router
    3. Plug it back in and wait until it is fully powered on

    Next, you need to install the firmware. You can only do it with Chrome or Internet Explorer because for some reason all other browsers are unstable. Also, you should only do it through an ethernet connection because you could ruin your router if you use the unstable wireless connection:
    1. Connect to your router directly with an ethernet cable and turn off your wireless connection on your computer.
    2. Using Chrome or IE, go to 192.168.1.1. The username is blank and the password is ‘admin’.
    3. Go to Administration > Firmware Upgrade
    4. Browse and open the firmware file you downloaded earlier
    5. Wait

    You will probably be taken to the DD-WRT screen. You should reset to factory settings again using the method above. But now you should have your brand new smokin’ router. The interface for DD-WRT is very similar to the one used by Linksys with almost all the same menu names. An important difference though is that now the USERNAME is ‘root’ (the password is still ‘admin’).

    Just reset all your old settings and you are done. You can now access and administrate the router wirelessly (it will be called ‘dd-wrt’ by default instead of ‘linksys’). One note: I had to change the router name through the wired connection. But after that, I was able to administrate wirelessly.

    If you run into any issues go to the WRT main site, click on Community, then Wiki. However I don’t think most people should have issues.

    This review is from: Linksys WRT150N Wireless N Home Router with 4-Port Switch Mimo (Personal Computers)

    This linksys N router is wonderful. It was easy to get up and running on the standard linksys firmware, which I later upgraded to DD-WRT […]. I used the mini generic v24 beta version first, and then upgraded to the non-mini version, and now I have a FULL featured wireless N router.

    One thing to note, DD-WRT reports this router as a WRT300N, so keep that in mind when you make your purchase :)

    Other than this, the features are great, the price is right, and it’s simply a solid router. Combine this with a gigabit switch and you’ll have the best, most affordable home network.

    DD-WRT Firmware Solves the Freeze Issue!, February 4, 2008

    This review is from: Linksys WRT150N Wireless N Home Router with 4-Port Switch Mimo (Personal Computers)

    Team,

    My WRT54G died on me and I ran out and bought a 150N without reading the reviews. I have version 1.1 and with the latest firmware 1.0.1.9 from Linksys, this thing drops internet connection on both wired and wireless connections. I decided to investigate to see if it’s a hardware or software issue. It turns out to be software as I am using DD-WRT v24 RC-6 (01/02/08) mini – build 8743 and all my connections issues are gone. My router is now stable and I can say that this is a nice device. If you are having issues, give DD-WRT a shot, you’ll thank me later.

    I will send information on this to Linksys so hopefully they can get decent firmware out soon.

  4. get behind the linksys, ask a friend to get behind the dsl modem.
    have a conversation

  5. Ensure the cable from the modem is to the CORRECT hole in the Linksys, I suppose. But I’m not saying that to insult you, as I’ll bet you’ve already done that. My WRT54GS has only one port in, 4 out. My covad bridge modem had only one out. I connected, and it worked right away. Covad didn’t approve, so APPARENTLY I was lucky.

    Some ISPs insist you use ONLY their equipment, so ignorant as I am, I suppose it could be that the ISP could have a hand in your problem.

    Have you tried, calling Linksys to get them to help? Before you do so, please lift up the Linksys modem and write down those little tiny numbers (part number, serial number, etc.) from the bottom, as it’s no fun to try to do that during the conversation. But after that, you’ll find that the Linksys folks are EXTREMELY kind, patient, polite, competent. They can possibly walk you through a solution. Worth trying.
