Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)

1 Answer

Linksys Rouer BFR stops functioning

HS Internet 1.5Mbps ADSL > 3Com Home Connect modem > Linksys BEFSR41
-Online 24/7

Several times in the last few months I have lost my HS ADSL Internet connection. I've determined it's a problem with my Linksys router, by simply pulling it's power for several minutes.
This router is several years old and up until recently has provided solid service.

Is this router failing or is some outside action causing it to lock up?

TIA; Josh

    Hi,
    I have a similar problem with my router, a few days ago things started to run much slower.
    then internet connection were lost and now I can't get the router to see the computers.
    modem works fine , WAN lights up, but the ports 1-4 show no activity when either or both of the pc's are plugged in. The adapter says cable not plugged in??
    I did notice that the link/act leds were flashing really fast during those last few days. .. now resets don't work power down and back up either, nothing is seen as being plugged into any port except the WAN .. think it's time for a new one????

    I lost my linksys site and have reentered the code several times but it will not connect. The lock button is on the link site.

There's a possibility that the router is already going bad but you can try first updating the firmware of the router because sometimes this problem is related to the software of the router so you may need to update its firmware,but if still after updating and still the same a new router will be the best solution for this problem of yours..You can also call this number for technical support help and double checking if the router is bad or still can be fix 1-877-787-8749...

Hello, my internet service provider gave a preinstalled modem to use, however I would like to use my Linksys Wireless - G ADSL Home Gateway to be able to connect my devices to the internet wirelessly......


No. Your wireless router will not be recognized as a modem, nor will your service provider allow it if it would work. Plug the router into the modem.

Plug a cat 5 wire in from the yellow jack on the router to the same on the modem (it may not be yellow). The rest is software. Reboot everything and run the wizards depending upon the version of windows you are using, which you don't mention, BTW.

Your service provider may offer to help you set up your home network. Give them a call.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

My internet connection is slow. wireless home network setup connected to adsl.


is it as slow as when you connect it from the router(not the modem) to your pc with a wire instead of wireless? if so its bc adsl is slow in nature and you may need a filter adapter going into your MODEM first

I am currently using a Linksys BFR series router that works fine. I am trying to replace it with a Linksys WRT 300 N router. I go through the installation program provided by Linksys on my HP computer...


Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Your provider probably sent you either a cable modem or adsl modem. If you connect the single port on the modem to the WAN or Internet Port on the Linksys and then connect the computers to any of the 4 ports that are grouped together, it should work.
Mac or PC, it makes no difference and drivers are not needed.
Unless this is a new router or it is one that you personally configured, I recommend resetting it back to factory default by holding down the little red button for 30 seconds, this eliminates any configuration issues that someone else may have introduced.
