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

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 and then press enter.

By default user is blank and password is admin

Here the manual and installation guide for your reference

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 :)

Lost installation cd

The installation CD is actually just a guide. It does not install any software on the computer. You can configure/reconfigure the router even without the installation CD.

If you need help reconfiguring the router, please let me know.

Please provide also the following info:
1. Who is your Internet Service Prodiver?
2. What is the model/brand of your modem?

How to upgrade the firmware on a BEFSR41

Firmware upgrades may erase all previous settings to your router's configuration. Before upgrading your firmware, make sure to record your settings. 1. Unplug and disconnect all computers from the router except for one. This computer must be plugged into the router directly. There can be no other network activity on the router during the upgrade, so be sure to power off all other computers. 2. Go to 3. Select the model number of the Linksys router you have (BEFSR41) as firmware upgrades vary by model and version. You can find your router version underneath your router after the model number. For example, ?BEFSR41 Ver. 3?. 4. Click the Downloads for this Product button. 5. Once you arrive on the download page, click the Firmware button. 6. After the firmware page opens, click the link that says ?Click here to download the latest firmware...? and download the firmware file to your computer. 7. Once you download the firmware Zip file, unzip it. If you do not have an unzipping program, go to and download WinZip, which will allow you to unzip the file. 8. After unzipping the firmware files, one of them will be called TFTP.EXE. Double click on it. 9. When the ?Upgrade Firmware? window opens, you will have three prompts. The ?Server? field is for the IP address of your router; by default this would be 10. Enter the routers password into the ?Password? field; by default the password is admin. 11. Browse for the file in the Firmware Upgrade utility program by clicking on the button next to file with the '?' symbol on it. Look for the file named 'code.bin' in the folder where the firmware files were extracted to. 12. Highlight the code.bin file and click on the Open button to direct the TFTP loader program to put that file into the "File" box. 13. The full path should be displayed [example: c:\linksys\code.bin]. 14. Click on the Upgrade button to begin the upgrade process. 15. The upgrade should take about 1 minute, and you will be prompted after the upgrade is complete and successful. If you are still having troubles, contact Linksys Technical Support.
