To configure your router to share your Internet service, please follow the steps below: 1. Check with your Internet Service Provider to make sure that service is active. You usually can determine a good link to the service if you can bypass the BEFW11S4, plug directly into the ISP modem unit, and get a good connection. 2. While plugged into your provider?s modem and able to get online, run the bundled Router Setup Wizard CD-ROM program that came with your router. This will configure the router automatically for you. 3. If the Setup Wizard CD-ROM from Step 2 fails to configure your router, you may need a manual configuration. While plugged into the provider modem unit and able to get online (Step 1), visit http://kb.linksys.com, and search for the name of your Internet service provider for detailed instructions on manual configurations. 4. Once one computer is able to access the Internet through the router, the router will then be configured. Other machines can now connect to the router without re-configuring it a second time. 5. If you are still having difficulties setting up your router, please contact Linksys Technical Support so that we may further assist you.

BEFW11S4 convert from wired router on Vista box has mouse problem


Absolutely. You seem to have answered the question yourself. There is no way that the router change can affect the performance of the mouse . 1. try this mouse now with another port in the computer. 2. Try this mouse in a different PC
Atleast that you isolate teh problem. This change in router has ntohing to do with a wired mouse's functions.
Thanks

Have used my befw11s4 for a long time. Now, when


If you did tamper with the configuration and got it all wrong then use HTTP to access the router and set it to factory default. After that, power on the router, press and hold down the reset switch for about 3 seconds. That will help you out if there is no hardware problem.

Every time i tried to set it up,would say the theres not not internet and i have to reset my wireless configuration connection


i think you need to check the configuration of your router. see the manual on how to apply the configurations therein. You should be configuring it with a web browser. You should apply the correct ip configuration of your internet.

also, make sure that the ethernet cable from your internet modem is connected to the internet port of the router, set the internet settings of the router as dynamic if it has. pm me if problem still persists.

Configuring


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix

My Router is out of warranty how do I troubleshoot it?


Hi, the BEFW11s4 sometimes is just a plug and play router. If your internet is working when your pc is connected to the modem, just do this steps.

1:Lets reset the BEFW11s4. with the power on, push the reset button at the back of the router for 30seconds, unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 10 seconds.

2:Disconnect the pc from your Comcast modem. Connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the INTERNET PORT of the BEFW11s4. Connect the pc to the BEFW11s4. NOTE; MAKE SURE THE PHYSICAL CONNECTION IS CORRECT.

3.Open INTERNET EXPLORER. ONLINE OR NOT?

A. IF ONLINE, clear the address field then type 192.168.1.1, if it ask you for a username and password, then we are ok. THE ROUTER IS ALREADY WORKING.

B. IF NOT ONLINE, TURN OFF PC, TURN OFF BEFW11S4, TURN OFF THE COMCAST MODEM. WAIT FOR 3 MINUTES

TURN ON MODEM, WAIT FOR 3 MINUTES, TURN ON BEFW11s4, WAIT FOR 3 MINUTES, TURN ON COMPUTER

IF STILL NOT ONLINE. Open internet explorer, type on the address field 192.168.1.1, username(nothing, as in blank), password(admin), click ok.

It will take you to the Linksys configuration page(Purple and white screen. On the screen you can see tabs

SETUP WIRELESS APPLICATIONS AND GAMING
MAC CLONE

CLICK THE MAC CLONE TAB, then click on Clone or Clone your pc mac, the save settings at the buttom. After this try the internet. If still offline, unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 10 seconds, try the internet again. It should be working now.

If still offline, do STEP 3B AGAIN. IT SHOULD BE WORKING ALREADY. IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, you really have to buy a new router.

I have solved this exact problem more than a thousand times. It always work if the router is still ok.


Good Luck

Drivers 4 Linksys BEFW11S4 ver. 4


Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.

Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?

Internet connection problems using the BEFW11S4


If you are having problems connecting to the Internet, follow the following steps: 1. Internet service: Check with your Internet Service Provider to make sure that service is active. You usually can determine a good link to the service if you can bypass the BEFW11S4, plug directly into the ISP modem unit, and get a good connection. This will narrow the issue down to either the service, or the router. 2. Network cables: Verify that the network cables that connect the network together are plugged into the current ports as they should (modem into the WAN/Internet port, computers into 1, 2, 3, or 4). Also try to change some or all of the network cables that attach to devices coming from the BEFW11S4. You may have bad cables. 3. Router configuration: Your router may not be configured to use your Internet service properly. While plugged into your provider?s modem and able to get online, run the bundled Router Setup Wizard CD-ROM program that came with your router. This will configure the router automatically for you. Note: this program must be executed on the main computer when plugged directly into the providers modem unit and able to get on the Internet 4. Manual configuration: If the Setup Wizard CD-ROM from Step 2 fails to configure your router, you may need a manual configuration. While plugged into the provider modem unit and able to get online, visit http://kb.linksys.com, and search for the name of your Internet service provider for detailed instructions on manual configurations. 5. Router firmware: Upgrade your router to the latest firmware version. Please go to http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest version of firmware for your product. After the upgrade, be sure to reset the router, by holding in the router?s reset button for 30 seconds and reconfiguring it for use with your service (Step 3 or Step 4). 6. Malfunctioning equipment: You may have a faulty network adapter, or a bad router. Please contact Linksys Technical Support for further assistance.
