All 4 ports want to set up as Wireless; I want all 4 Ethernet

Connect the Ethernet cable directly to the Ethernet ports on the router. That should work. There may be a setting in the routers configuration to disable wireless if that's what you want.

I want to connect my all-in-one with my desktop-computer and router.

1.Your Modem you have with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has an Ethernet cable coming from it
2.Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port of the router.
3.Unless your desktop computer has wifi capabilities (Wireless) your will want to plug an Ethernet cable directly from your Ethernet port of your computer to one of the 4 ports of your router.

Hello. I bought this modem with wi fi ,dsl router. How to set it to use this modem as a router.I want to connect my pc with lan cord & use wifi connection with my laptop and phones.

Turn DSL-router off.
Turn Actiontec off.
Turn computer off.


* telephone-port in wall <--- 4-pin telephone wire --> DSL router

Turn DSL-router on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn Actiontec on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn computer on, and boot it.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....
Start Internet Explorer
Type (or whatever numbers you saw)
Login to your router
Configure the wireless adapter inside the router
(enter an SSID, choose 'WPA' encryption, enter a password)
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer
Click "View Available Wireless Networks",
and select the SSID that you provided.

ENET Port issue on BEFW11S4 Wireless Router


Try these steps:

1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.

Try these and hope it will help you ;-)

Not enough ethernet ports

I have this router, you do not need two ports for your pc.
one port marked internet goes into your modem then the other ports marked 1-4 goes into your pc. it doesnt matter what one you plug it into. heres a little diagram

MODEM---------> LINKSYS ROUTER ------------> PC ethernet port.

(note: the cable from the modem to router and router to pc is a straight through cable, AKA Patch Cable. )
