Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 802.11b Wireless Router/Switch + WMP11 PCI Card (BEFW11S4 + WMP11)
Hello, I need help fixing my router. The green power light is flashing. Can't get to the linksys page by putting in ip address 192.168.1.1. When trying to download the firmware, I don't know how to do a .bin file.
Hi, Have you tried a hard reset? Your model has a small reset button at the rear between the Internet/WAN connection and one of the antennas (Press for 10 seconds +). Also flashing power led is an indicator of firmware problem which might have been caused by a failed firmware upgrade/update. Instruction on how to correct this problem is also included in the firmware upgrade/update. A more detailed instruction is in the User Manual. With regards to firmware update/upgrade , pls be reminded that firmware is very version specific. To locate the version number, you have to look underneath the unit and download the appropriate firmware from LinkSys website. (http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859878881&packedargs=sku%3D1115416826220&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=7888126220B03&displaypage=download) The download is a zip file which you have to extract to a folder. The .bin file plus instructions as well as specific instructions on how to make the power led stop flashing. Hope this works out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Solution 1: Reset router by pressing reset button using your finger or with a tip of a pen or paper clip for at least 30 seconds. This will reset your router to the default settings. Solution 2: Once you are able to log into the built-in Web server to IP address 192.168.1.1, change default settings for security and use encryption if possible. Once in the settings screen, look for the update firmware setting and upload the .bin file you downloaded from the router's manufacturer.
