First off thanks for choosing fixya.com for help.

It does not look like this router offers parental control features. However, you can install a "Net Nanny" application that will allow you to restrict the time your kids are online.

The other option and much cheaper is to label which cable is your sons going into the router and unplug it at the given time.

If you have an older computer laying around that you can spare, you can also use IPCOP or SMOOTHWALL firewalls to limit time on the internet. These devices are free and offer a ton of features.
However they require a dedicated computer and will remove any data on the hard drive of that machine.

Your easiest bet would be "Net Nanny" software. Vista has parental control settings in it, but its for the whole computer (meaning it will turn off the computer) and not just the internet.

Hope this helps you in some way.

How to connect a dynex (dx-e402)router to linksys (befsr41) router


Configure the dynex on another computer that is not connected to the linksys router.
Assuming that your linksys is currently setup as 192.168.1.1
Turn off DHCP on the dynex and setup the IP to 192.168.1.2 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
use a cross over cable and plug each ends to the LAN port on port routers.
you should now be able to ping 192.168.1.2 (dynex router) from your other computers on the linksys router network.
any computer that is connected to the dynex should be able to get a dhcp address from the linksys router.

I have a WRT54G router and want to daisy chain a Linksys BEFSR41 switch off it, but I seem to be doing it wrong...


Not sure if you just want to expand the amont of computer you can connect to it or the wireless range but I would setup the BEFSR41:
  • Disable DHCP
  • Set an address out of the DHCP scope of the WRT54G
  • Connect them LAN to LAN if not use xover to connect them

Not connecting to internet


Do you have QOS on the router to be ON?
Or have you set up Access Restrictions?

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.

Linksys router limits speed to 5 meg.


Try to access the router's setup page and change the MTU settings. The default address for the Befsr41 is 192.168.1.1. Here are instructions:

1) Use a computer wired to the router.
2) Launch a browser and type in 192.168.1.1, leave the username blank and the password is admin or the password you have set when you first configured the router.
3) Click on the Advanced tab then click on the Filters tab. On the bottom part you have MTU.
4) Enable that option and set MTU to 1500, 1400, 1300 (for cable ISP connection) and 1492 (for DSL connection) and check if it will work.
4) If that does not work, you can try upgrading the firmware of your router.
