    I have two computers I want to hook up to the internet. The 1st computer is hooked up to Comcast modem. I followed all the instructions. Went to the website for the DHCP address. I unplugged the modem, router and reset the router. When I plug everything back in, still no internet on either computer. I have the modem plugged into the incoming line, modem line to the router (WAN) and the two computers plugged into #1 and #2 ports on the router. Still no internet. I called comcast and they tell me this should be working, but wouldn't you know it, it's not. I must be doing something wrong. Can anyone help....maybe step by step instructions? lol Thank you!

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

I have a linksys router. model number befsr41 v. 3. i have a acer computer and some reason it wont recognize the network, calling it unidentified network, and internet does not work.. what do i do


The first thing is that the router model number you have is not a wireless router.
Now if you are connecting the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable then check the port light on the router. If you connect the computer to the port number 2 then port 2 light should lit up on the router.
Now check the IP address on the computer. If you are not getting proper IP address then check the DHCP server on the router is enabled.
If that is enabled and still not getting the IP address then assign a static IP address on the computer.

Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.

First reset the router for 30 seconds. unplug the power to the router. wait for 5 seconds. Plug it back in.

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.

After updating firmware, power light is blinking


Is the router settings menu 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 available from internet explorer? The factory user password should be admin. If you cannot get the router menu to come up the firmware may have been corrupted. Hopefully you can get to the menu or try and re-install the firmware.

When I turn on my BEFSR41 the POWER and PORT #4 lights up even though nothing is connected to it yet... what seems to be the problem?... is it defective?


If you are using the Uplink port, this may cause port 4 to show active. Disconnect the Uplink cable to see if the light goes out. If it doesn't, then yes, it sounds like you may have a bad port on your router.

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

My linksys router keeps dropping connectivity to the internet


does your router and your landline phone is in one connection in with a splitter..
does connection failed whenever there's a call?
if so your splitter might be broken
or you must insert your phone line with the splitter, it might be in your connection set up..
or make sure your utp cable is stable and not in exposure area of people or pet where it might be touch or something..

hope this helps...

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