Linksys BEFVP41 doesnt't work

Hello,
I'm trying to put an "old" BEFVP41 in service, but it doesn't work. I made the following steps:
1. reset of the device (I pressed more than 30 sec on the reset button)
2. I configured my PC (XP SP2) with IP 192.168.1.100/24

-> the network interface of the PC is working properly
-> the BEFVP41 is not answering to a ping (192.168.1.1)
-> unable to connect to 192.168.1.1 with the explorer
- rhe status led is red

Can somebody help me? Thanks in advance

1) if you can not ping the routers ip (the gateway), that means you have a firewall blocking you. disable that firewall, reboot if necessary, and try it again, now remember if disable an external firewall, like for instance Norton, that norton might enable Windows firewall, so u might have to go there and disable it as well. now also i would not hard code the ip yet on the nic, because you are confusing yourself and the situation. leave it on obtain automatic for ip and DNS. then do a winsock fix by typing this
netsh winsock reset
in the command prompt window (in the RUN field type CMD)
and then reboot. that should help. but the biggest issue that you have is the RED status. that is no good. so that could be the root of the problem, contact linksys at this number 8003267114 if you still under warranty, they would take care of the rest.
Good luck.

401 Authorization Error when accessing a Web-based Utility


Getting the 401 Authorization Required error page means that you tried to access a Setup page and entered an invalid password three (3) times. To reset the password, the device must be reset to factory default settings. Resetting the device: 1. Hold in the Reset button (usually located on the front or back panel) for 30 seconds. 2. Unplug the power cord to the device and wait for 1 minute. 3. Plug the power cord back into the device. 4. This will restore the device's default settings, which includes a default password of admin. 5. You can now try to access the Setup page again. Accessing the Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). Type the IP Address of the device into the Address Bar and press [Enter]. 1. The User Name and Password Prompt will appear. 2. Leave the User Name Field blank. 3. Type in the Router?s Password, admin, (the default Password). 4. Click OK or press the [Enter] key. If the device was reset to factory settings, the password of admin should be valid and the Setup page should load. If not, repeat steps to reset the device.
