Need help Connecting my Linksys BEFSR41 router

I just bought this linksys router a couple of days ago and i had read that the new set up wizard CD would help me instal it fast but it has a lot of problems. when it gets to the point where it has to look for the router even though everything is plugged in right it would say "Cannot find router please connect it" and i have tried it a lot of times and it wont find it. after i had tried that i googled it up and saw many responses to type in Http:// on my browser and the little sign in box won't pop up and it wont take me to a web page.
Please help i dont want to go to to best buy and tell geek squad. :(

Turn the Router off. Turn off the Cable modem.Make sure the cable modem is plugged into the WAN/Internet port on the router and Plug a computer directly into the router with a network cable. Turn the modem on first, then the router. When everything is booted, up, if you don't have a static IP address, you should be able to surf the net.

I bought a Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port, it dosnt seem to work with windows 7 and i dont know why, need help...

To get this right,you're also going to need your hardware version number.It's on the same sticker that all the info is.It'll be 1.0,2.0 or 2.1.
Go to the link below,it will take you to the support page for the router.It doesn't include Windows 7 drivers,but it should run on the Vista drivers.
Read the different links to info and see if it can answer your questions.Probably so.
You can also download firmware for the different hardware versions.If what's listed there is newer than yours,you absolutely want to install the firmware.
You also want to go to the Linksys router setup page and go through the wireless and network setup processes again.I have to do that periodically with my D-Link because the power fails here a lot and it resets to default.
Let me know what happens,and if you need,I'll keep trying.
For good or bad,please rate my post?

Setup and confifuration of my linksys befsr41 ver 2 router

Since you did not include your exact model number and type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router. Also answer this question " When you plug your computer to your modem do you get online automatically or do you need a username and password"

Linksys router befsr41 model

Since you do not know what has been changed. I would suggest you to reset everything.

I am not sure about your particular model.
But generally, Linksys routers have a small hole called "reset". It should be at the back of your router.

Use a pin, press the reset for few seconds (~30).
Now, everthing is reset.
You the setup CD which came with your router and set it up again from fresh.

hope it works :)
