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.

No matter what I do, and I've been trying for about a year, this router will not work. I can't get it to provide a wireless network when connected to my internet, and I have tried setting it up...


reset your internet modem by unplugging it and plugging it back in. there is a reset button on the back of the router. while it is on press and hold it for 10 FULL seconds once thats done take an enternet cord and put it in slot 1 and plug it directly to your computer. wait about 30 seconds (I ACTUALLY MEAN 30 SECONDS) then open up Internet Explorer it will try and load a page. if it doesnt automatically goto the setup go and type the following into the URL EXXACTLY TO IT ENTIRELY http://192.168.0.1 if that doesnt work try http://192.168.1.1 if that doesnt work either there is something wrong with the router itself. If it does work then go through the entire configuration setup and follow instructions exactly. recommend you use a wifi password that is WPA

Doesnt connect


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support. :-)

Software Firewalls and this router


You can never have too much security, however there are some firewalls that will not work with hardware firewalls, that includes the all Linksys Routers . Keeping this in mind, some software firewall will continue working after the router is installed. If it does, it shouldn't need to remove it, because it's an extra layer of security. However if there are difficulties using the Internet with the Software firewall after installing the router, try disableing it to see if internet is accessable. If the internet works after disabling the software firewall, then remove the firewall.
