First and foremost, did you start with the Holy Grail of steps when dealing with routers?

YES! It does make a difference and it matters.
Hopefully you haven't bricked it (probably not).

If it is powered on, press and HOLD the reset button until the VERY END, DO NOT LET UP.
Holding the reset button for 30 seconds, then unplug the power and wait 30 seconds, plug power back in and wait 30 seconds. . . NOW you can let up on the reset button.

Now you can try and reflash the firmware, DO make sure you are using the correct version of DD-WRT for your EXACT model AND Version.

I have only done a few, but the 30/30/30 is crucial I am telling you!

Check the available memory on your PC. It may be limited and far too small for the operation you are running. Same thing happened to me

not really unless you were to run an ethernet cable from your existing network to a location outside of the current wi fi range.
A repeater would be better
It hears the wi fi signal so you put within the signal range near where the signal still can be heard near the extent of the current wi fi range. It will hear the signal and then re-transmit it to extend the signal range .

You might be able to use a gain antenna of 5dbi 2dbi is lost in the cable usually so it is 3dbi which is twice the level

another method would be a omni directional antenna facing the coverage range . But it is beaming in one direction .
which means more signal strength in one direction

It depends on the power capability of the EA7400! Usually, those ports are rated at 500ma, or 0.5 amps each. If you plug in a non-powered hub into one of the ports, it will draw power from the EA7400 to operate. If the power draw needed exceeds the capability of the port, it won't work properly. A powered hub relies on an external power source. In that case, only data collisions (oversaturating the ports) need to be considered.

hi yvo2000. Sorry, you cant do that. That router (well, the SPA2102) needs a cable from your neighbor's router in order to provide internet to the POTS jacks. Please don't forget to rate my answer if it helped you. Thank you :D

This seems to be a symptom of a configuration error, which can be fixed by resetting the router to factory default. Do this by finding the (often partially hidden) reset button on the device, and pressing and holding down the button, with the power on, till lights start flashing on the router. Let go of the button and allow the router to reset (can take a minute or two). You will now have reset the router to factory default. To connect to your ISP, you'll need to enter your account details (and any other specific information) provided to you by your ISP. You will also have to set a name and password for the wifi section of your router (if it has wifi) if you don't want it to be freely accessible by everyone within wifi range.

When you come across a profile that spreads hot news, be wary. Fake profiles have been long used to give an
air of credibility to those who spread fake news on social media.

I'm trying to get into CISCO LINKSYS E1200 router but I can not find a way to get in, it's to configure ports for a DVR.

The simplest way to reset the range extender is to press and hold the reset button on the side of the unit for 5-10 seconds. The LED will start blinking. The button is recessed and is close to the WPS button. You can use a ballpoint pen or the end of an unfolded paperclip. Now you will have to connect the RE6700 to your router as if it was brand new. See https://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=138012 for more information.

I hope this helps.
