Question about Linksys BEFSX41 Router (DHBEFSX41)

1 Answer

3 PC's networked to BEFSX41 very slow accessing internet

Have 3 PC's (2 x Vista, 1 x XP connected to a Linksys BEFSX41 Router; each network connection says running 100Mbits. PC to PC seems (?) to be OK but Internet access is SLOOOWWWWW! Connecting one PC direct to Internet Modem and runs at 85-90% of contracted speed.  Running thru the router getting limp-a-long speeds (per ISP speed test) of 100kbps to 3xx kbps.

 

Not a router guru but PC/Network savvy.  Any suggestions???

 

Thanks!

    Please read my original post carefully - connecting one PC direct to the modem and get 85-90% of max speed. Actually I worked with Linksys last nite, they recommended upgrade formware -- did so, hosed the router - now it dont work - their only comment was "Out of warrantee"!  It is several years old.

Sounds like your internet access is the slow down, not the router. You don't say if you have DSL or CABLE or what.  I'd check there. Make sure you are getting a strong signal.  Hook up one system directly, without the router and check the speed.

    call your internet provider, tell THEM your connection isn't up to what you expected.  Then go out and buy a new router.

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

Replaced Linksys Wireless-B 2.4GHz 807.11b Router and Wireless B 2.4GHz 802.11b Wireless-B Notebook Adapter with Linksys-N Ultra Range Plus Wireless-N Gigabit Router, and Wireless N Ultra Range plus Dual...


Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
