Cant get to internet thru linksys etherfast cable/dsl router

Problem just started last week with linksys router befsr41 v2. was geting 10mb connection on wifes computer and 100mb connection on mine. then i lost my connection completely. linksys tech support had me try reseting router which didnt work. then suggested reflashing firmware on router. had my computer connected to router and cable modem disconnected from router. thats only time i can access router via webpage connection from my computer. successfully reflashed firmware and then connected cable modem to router and both computers to router. the lights blink on router like it is working, but cant connect to internet or access router via webpage once the modem is plugged into router. i think the router is probably 5 years old, maybe 6.

    The Linksys Tech Support person gave me that info on shuting down and powering up the hardware as part of their solution. However, the Cable Modem is for Internet Phone and Computer Connection to Internet... it has a battery backup built into it, so I don't know how to shut down the Cable Modem. If I unplug it from the power strip, it still keeps going (like the everready bunnie). I'll call the cable company and find out if there is a way to shut the modem down without opening it up and removing the battery and if there is a reset button on the modem also.

I you restart you devices, modem and router...
first turn off the modem and then the router and last will be the computer
second if you will turn the devices on...
first turn on the modem,wait until the dsl light becomes solid
second turn on the router,wait for a minute and
third turn on the computer.

check the wireless settings for your router and save changes
next, try to check wireless connection by disabling the local area connection (LAC)

Reset the modem while the router is plugged into it. Do this by disconnecting the power to the modem and then reconnecting.

Cant get configuration to complete on befsr41 router


Press the reset button on the router for at least 30 seconds. release it. Unplug the power to the router . wait for 10 seconds and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute and try to set up your router.
If you are having trouble setting up your router with the CD, then you can set up your router without CD also. You can do it manually.

First make sure that your computer is online directly through the modem without the router.
If that is working then you can connect the computer and the modem to the router. Open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the settings of the Internet service provider

Can't stay connected


Might I suggest checking out this site, http://www.ps3chat.com/playstation-3-online/1351-routers-ps3.html . I think that the Linksys router is having issues keeping the connection alive on your PS3. You should also consider setting a static IP.

Hello, I saw the article on the fix on the BEFSR41 and the blinking LED, and I was able to find the firmware and put it on 10MB speed, but when I ping the 198.168.1.1 it says destination host unreachable,...


if you have lowered the card speed and cannot ping the 192.168.1.1, have you set a static IP address on the computer, if so what was it? because if you have set a static IP of 192.168.1.xx and still cannot ping the router, this means that your router is already defective. you may want to contact linksys for replacement

Lost internet connection


Power off the router by unplugging it. Also power off the DSL or cable router. Shut down the PC. Located on the back side of the router is a small reset button. Using a pen press and hold for ten seconds. Same for the DSL or cable. Power every thing back up starting with the DSL/cable, than the router and lastly the PC.
