Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router (12503024)
I recently purchased a new HP laptop. I had a BEFW11S4 that I had purchased several years ago, but never used. I set it up, it seems to be set up correctly. I have internet connectivity on my desktop (not a wireless computer). I wanted my network to be secured, so I enabled the security and created a password to access the network. Everytime I try to connect with my laptop I get a message telling me that my password is wrong, even though I KNOW it's right. The only way I've discovered to fix this is by going back to my desktop, accessing 192.168.1.1 and re-saving my password for my secure network. After I do that, I can back to the laptop and connect manually. This is very annoying. I hope that someone out there knows how to fix this!!
That's firmware problem on your router. Try to download the latest firmware for you router from www.linksys.com/download then load the latest firmware. After successfully updated the firmware, you need to hard reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds then unplug the power for 10 seconds and plug it back in. You will need to reconfigure the wireless settings.
