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!

I have a new hp lap top with windows 7 it is recognizing my linksys router but saying no internet connection available, i have two other laptops that have no problem connecting


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.

Linksys Wireless B BEFW11S4


That router should have a small hole on the back of the router (near the power plug, I believe) with a button inside. Use a paperclip to hold that button down for 5 to 10 seconds, then reset the power to the router, and it should be back to it's defaults.

If that doesn't work, the firmware is probably corrupted, and there's not a whole lot you can do about it.
