You need to download the firmware first. click here.
make sure to select the exact model and version of it (look underneath the device for the exact model and version)

access the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.1.1 (this is the default ip address unless you have changed it to something else)
then you will be prompted to enter the username and password, don't type anything on the username and by default the password is admin

once you are on the router's page, go to the administration tab and click on firmware upgrade subtab
(Note: you need to take note of all the settings that were setup on the router since you need to reset after the upgrade)
browse for the firmware that you have downloaded and click on upgrade
once the upgrade is done, press the reset button of the router and reconfigure it with the settings that you have

hope this'll help you

ciao!

You have befw11s4 router, which is very old router.
May be you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router.
change the channel to 6.
check the wireless security settings.
Make sure that the wireless MAC filter is disabled.
For this you will need to access the router set up page.
make sure that the computer is connected to the router with the cable when you open the router set up.

Lost wireless-B light after firmware upgrade


I own the same router. In the back of the router there is a little red button you can push with a pen or the like. This should restore the factory default settings on the router. That should rollback the firmware upgrade and solve your problem. You will need to setup your router again but it should not be a paper weight anymore.

How to upgrade the firmware on a BEFW11S4


Firmware upgrades may erase all previous settings to your router's configuration. Before upgrading your firmware, make sure to record your settings. 1. Unplug and disconnect all computers from the router except for one. This computer must be plugged into the router directly. There can be no other network activity (wired and wireless) on the router during the upgrade, so be sure to power off all other computers. 2. Go to http://www.linksys.com/download 3. Select the model number of the Linksys router you have. Make sure to select the correct router version as well, as firmware upgrades frequently vary by version. You can find your router version underneath your router after the model number. For example, ?BEFW11S4 ver. 2?. 4. Click the Downloads for this Product button. 5. Once you arrive on the download page, click the Firmware button. 6. After the firmware page opens, click the link that says ?Click here to download the latest firmware...? and download the firmware file to your computer. 7. Once you download the firmware Zip file, unzip it. If you do not have an unzipping program, go to http://www.winzip.com and download WinZip, which will allow you to unzip the file. 8. After unzipping the firmware files, one of them will be called TFTP.EXE. Double click on it. 9. When the ?Upgrade Firmware? window opens, you will have three prompts. The ?Server? field is for the IP address of your router; by default this would be 192.168.1.1. 10. Enter the routers password into the ?Password? field; by default the password is admin. 11. Browse for the file in the Firmware Upgrade utility program by clicking on the button next to file with the '?' symbol on it. Look for the file named 'code.bin' in the folder where the firmware files were extracted to. 12. Highlight the code.bin file and click on the Open button to direct the TFTP loader program to put that file into the "File" box. 13. The full path should be displayed [example: c:\linksys\code.bin]. 14. Click on the Upgrade button to begin the upgrade process. 15. The upgrade should take about 1 minute, and you will be prompted after the upgrade is complete and successful. If you are still having troubles, contact Linksys Technical Support.
