Linksys befw11s4 wireless b v.4 ping problems

The larger issue is that i cant connect games via the direct IP option. The smaller issue is that the friend trying to connect to me cant ping my routers Internet adress (as listed on its router setup page). i can ping his fine, and my internet connection is fine(so is his). i assume that the issue will be resolved in the settings page of my router.hopefully someone can help me resolve the small issue so i can tackle the big one thanx!

Have him do a traceroute to try to isolate where the packets start to drop

    I'm assuming you guys are using pc's

    ask him to do go to start>run>and type 'cmd' (without the ' ') and then press enter

    then ask him to type the following at the prompt

    tracert your-ip-address



    since you guys mention how you guys were trying to ping each other.. I'm assuming you guys were using ip address to ping eachother.. so asking to instead of typing ping your-ip-address, ask him to try the tracert command... that should tell him the different router the packets he's sending are going through to reach your ip address... if at some point he sees asteriks (* * *) that will let you guys know where the packets are getting discarded

How do i make a password on my wifi conection..my router is linksys BEFW11S4 v.2


First, your router is old, go pickup a new one that supports the G standard, don't worry it will fall back to B standard or better yet get an N standard router. To setup wireless security directly connect a pc via cat5 data cable to one of the switch ports on the router (not the wan) and login to the web innerface, click the wireless tab, now look for the security or encrypted options. Most routers support WPA-2 encryption where you enter a phrase of 2 or 3 words if your router only supports web encryption go buy a new router. Save it, then go to your pc, disconnect, remove the wifi ssid from your managed wireless list refresh and search for the ssid of your wireless signal (name), now connect and the router should challenge you for your WPA pass phrase you setup in the router. Now your wifi ssid is secure and all connections will require the passphrase.

My Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router? i cant connect in my internet and my PSP how can i do to connect it?


Set up an open wireless network or with WPA encryption. The PSP supports WEP/WPA but not WPA2 or Wireless G, it's a B device.
Also use a short passphrase and DHCP to lease IP Addresses.

High ping


Question, why are you using so many different routers? Sounds like you are causing a bottleneck in the network.

This is how I have my network.

Modem ---- PFSENSE Firewall (currently my DHCP Server) ------- Cisco Switch ------ Patch Panel ------- out to my Servers, computers and one wireless router. See only one machine is managing my IP addresses.

Buy a patch panel and run wireing to all the locations in the house or just run wireless.

ENET Port issue on BEFW11S4 Wireless Router


Hi!

Try these steps:

1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.

Try these and hope it will help you ;-)

Linksys BEFW11S4-RM 4 port wireless router


This is an old router. Look at the power light. You must have a STEADY power light. RESET the BEFW11s4 by pushing the reset button for 30seconds. Unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 30 seconds. Connect pc to port 2 or 3. pc should get an ip of 192.168.1.x. If you are getting this ip that means that the pc is already detecting the router.

Good Day

Linksys wrt300n gaming wirelless lan problem


Can I assume all the computers on the network are running the windows OS? You might want to double check that firewall is turned off PC acting as the server. Also try to ping the IP Address of the server (probably something like 192.168.1.1xx) from all the other computers on the network:

  1. Click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
  2. Type in "ping xxx" where 'xxx' is the IP of the PC acting as the server.
You can get the IP Address for your computer:
  1. Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Network
  2. Double click on the "Wireless Network Connection" (if you're connected wirelessly) or the "Local Network Connection" (if you're connected via an ethernet cable)
Hope this helps!
