Question about Linksys BEFSX41 Router (DHBEFSX41)
1&2 of my 4-port switch cable/dsl router is not funtioning. there is no flashing light coming from the 2 ports although i connect 2 pc's from it.
Hi, I will assume that you have tried: 1. Connecting the 2 PCs to 3 & 4; and 2. verifying that it is not a cable issue. Possibilities are: a. dirty contacts of 1 & 2 - cotton buds and a strong solvent to clean the prongs/terminals; b. firmware fault - do a hard reset (backup your configuration first); and/or c. hardware fault - component failure in the electronics. If it is a hardware fault, the router has got to be replaced. If you have an old hub lying around, you can connect it to either 3 or 4 and all the other PCs to the hub/switch. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Binz, have you tried doing a hard reset on the router, hold the reset button 30 seconds, login in will be user: admin password:admin -- if its an older model user blank password:admin, if that doesnt work, try updating your firmware, you didnt specify your router model, or I would link you to a firmware update
