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.

Internet wont work thru my Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch.....can i fix it or do i need a new one?


hi there, you need to configure the router first to connect over the internet.

checked if everything is properly connected, modem-router to the computer, checked the lights on the router and the modem as well if it is properly lit up.

if your ISP(Internet Provider) is cable then you need to clone the mac address of the computer, if you are running DSL, you need to input the username and password of your account from your ISP.

Accessing the router setup screen, open IE and type on the address bar 192.168.1.1 then nothing for username and password is admin.

on the setup screen you will see there Internet connection type, by default it is automatic configuration if you have cable connection as your Internet then leave it that way and look for mac address clone sub tab.

if you are running dsl for the Internet connection type you need to put PPPoE and input there your username and password from your ISP. then in everything you do you need to save the settings there.

tell me if it

if you are from the east coast,you need to configure your new linksys router for a ussername and password which is usually provided to you by your Internet Service Provider
if you are from the west coast,after you connect the new linksys, you must be good to go for internet usage.

Wireless networking


If your router is a BEFSR41 it does not have a wireless option on it. It is just a wired cable/dsl router.

Good luck

NAT


First, you need to get into the user interface for the router.  To do that, just open your web browser, type in 198.168.1.1 & hit enter.  A login prompt will pop up if you're able to access the router.

If you've never done this before, the username is blank & the password is admin

What, exactly do you want to do with the NAT firewall?

To enable/disable NAT: click on setup, then click on advanced routing.

To filter Internet NAT redirection: click on security, then click on filters.

You can find this information in the User guide provided by LinkSys at:

Select your version number, then click on User Guide when it comes up.  User guides & Interfaces for the BEFSR41 are almost identical on every version.
