I purchased a Cisco Linksys E1200 router, and I opted out of the Cisco Connect software. Once I did that, I was able to set the WPA2 password. Now, when I go to log in to the administration area of the router (192.168.1.1), it is completely different software (it is a purple-colored admin area, firmware 2.00.02, BEFSR41). Here's what it looks like:

Now, I'd like to install Connect, just so I can change the SSID and WPA2 password, but I can't because it fails when I try to install it (it can't connect).

If I can, I'd like to use the legacy Linksys firmware that is used on the WRT models.

The "BEFSR41" is a completely different router from the "E1200". The BEFSR41 is a simple 4-port router (older) with no WIFI capabilities, whereas the E1200 has wifi & such.

Are you sure you're corrected to the correct router? Do you have 2 routers on the same LAN? It's possible you have an IP conflict and the "newer" router lost the arp race.

Also possible the E1200 has been connected to the BEFSR41 router and set up in bridge mode, and has a different IP . . . – ernie Nov 8 '12 at 21:19
