Hi

just about adding a few lines for comfort of execution after you have tried all the above connect the pc to the port numbered 4 or 3 and check if it connects to the internet if it connects then every thing is working fine

but if it doesn't work yet then try connecting the pc to port numbered 1 if it works now then we have to implore a work around here to have your other pc to be connected to the router

connect the cable from the modem to port numbered 1 instead of the port labled 'INTERNET'

now check see if the internet is available in ports 2,3,4 by connect the PC to the ports succesively

hope this helps
cheers

Here are a couple of things to try. You're probably already done this a million times but I'll walk through the connections just in case. Hopefully these instructions will work with the Linksys router model you have.

Power the router up by plugging in the power supply. Plug in an Ethernet cable from your broadband modem to the port in the back of the router labeled "internet". Plug in another Ethernet cable from your computer to any one of the four numbered ports in the back of the router. Hit the reset button on the back of the router. You may need a sharp object like a pen or pencil to poke it. Reboot your computer. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the administration tab. Then click on the factory defaults sub-tab. The sub-tabs are in blue just below the normal tabs. Hit yes to restore factory defaults. Now see if you can connect to the internet through the router.

Can i hook my westell 327w to a linksys befsr41


Absolutely, it is as simple as plugging in the westell to the befsr41. However all that will do is split the cable so it can accomodate multiple devices. BUT, the befsr41 is a wired router, to go wifi pick up a wireless router. This wireless router replaces the befsr41. I like the linksys (Cisco) 1000 or the 2000. If they have the Wrt54g thats best. Good luck! Dont worry it is pretty simple.

I have a linksys befsr41 but I do not have the installation cd and I am using OSX 10.6.4. Please help! Merci beaucoup


Hello,
When you connect your router using an Ethernet port you don't need any driver.

To access the configuration and setup of your router open your internet browser and in the address bar enter 192.168.1.1 and then press enter.

By default user is blank and password is admin

Here the manual and installation guide for your reference

I have been running a Linksys BEFSR41 version 2 wired router for over 5 years without any problems. My wife is a teacher and her school p[urchased new laptops recently so I decided to go wireless. Got on...


I think the most likely problem is that both routers are using different IP address ranges and won't allow data to pass between them.
I suggest you use only the Linksys wireless router.

Lost internet connection


Power off the router by unplugging it. Also power off the DSL or cable router. Shut down the PC. Located on the back side of the router is a small reset button. Using a pen press and hold for ten seconds. Same for the DSL or cable. Power every thing back up starting with the DSL/cable, than the router and lastly the PC.
