Linksys Wireless B BEFW11S4

I am trying to download the firmware my modem is not communicating with my router. My router is out of warranty and they want me to pay $29.95 for tech support.

I tried to do this myself and receive an AVG update file with a .bin extension but problem is not fixed.

PLEASE HELP

    My modem was NOT communicating with my router and I was had to disconnect it. Due to the problems I had even contacting Linksys I did go and buy a new router. Linksys wanted $29 for tech support the new NETGEAR router was only $40. Thank you for your assistance but I am now back online and that's really all I care about.



    P.S. I was told by COMCAST that no doubt my firmware needed updated.

I would not download any firmware for this router due to past issues that I have had with others who have attempted with no sucess! If you should for any reason download the wrong driver you could Brick your router. At that point you would have to buy another. Have you done so yet? I hope not! What exactly started the communication problem? Was it while you were trying to update the firmware? Or have you not tried that yet? I can help you with this problem if you answer these questions!

You will need to get the right User ID and Password before proceeding.

Also make your Verizon 6100G LAN port is connected to your BEFW11S4 WAN port.

Sometime this can happen when you upgrade the firmware in the wireless router. Try installing the latest wireless card/ LAN card drivers for each of the computers. This may fix your problem.

My Router is out of warranty how do I troubleshoot it?


Hi, the BEFW11s4 sometimes is just a plug and play router. If your internet is working when your pc is connected to the modem, just do this steps.

1:Lets reset the BEFW11s4. with the power on, push the reset button at the back of the router for 30seconds, unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 10 seconds.

2:Disconnect the pc from your Comcast modem. Connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the INTERNET PORT of the BEFW11s4. Connect the pc to the BEFW11s4. NOTE; MAKE SURE THE PHYSICAL CONNECTION IS CORRECT.

3.Open INTERNET EXPLORER. ONLINE OR NOT?

A. IF ONLINE, clear the address field then type 192.168.1.1, if it ask you for a username and password, then we are ok. THE ROUTER IS ALREADY WORKING.

B. IF NOT ONLINE, TURN OFF PC, TURN OFF BEFW11S4, TURN OFF THE COMCAST MODEM. WAIT FOR 3 MINUTES

TURN ON MODEM, WAIT FOR 3 MINUTES, TURN ON BEFW11s4, WAIT FOR 3 MINUTES, TURN ON COMPUTER

IF STILL NOT ONLINE. Open internet explorer, type on the address field 192.168.1.1, username(nothing, as in blank), password(admin), click ok.

It will take you to the Linksys configuration page(Purple and white screen. On the screen you can see tabs

SETUP WIRELESS APPLICATIONS AND GAMING
MAC CLONE

CLICK THE MAC CLONE TAB, then click on Clone or Clone your pc mac, the save settings at the buttom. After this try the internet. If still offline, unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 10 seconds, try the internet again. It should be working now.

If still offline, do STEP 3B AGAIN. IT SHOULD BE WORKING ALREADY. IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, you really have to buy a new router.

I have solved this exact problem more than a thousand times. It always work if the router is still ok.


Good Luck

Internet connection problems using the BEFW11S4


If you are having problems connecting to the Internet, follow the following steps: 1. Internet service: Check with your Internet Service Provider to make sure that service is active. You usually can determine a good link to the service if you can bypass the BEFW11S4, plug directly into the ISP modem unit, and get a good connection. This will narrow the issue down to either the service, or the router. 2. Network cables: Verify that the network cables that connect the network together are plugged into the current ports as they should (modem into the WAN/Internet port, computers into 1, 2, 3, or 4). Also try to change some or all of the network cables that attach to devices coming from the BEFW11S4. You may have bad cables. 3. Router configuration: Your router may not be configured to use your Internet service properly. While plugged into your provider?s modem and able to get online, run the bundled Router Setup Wizard CD-ROM program that came with your router. This will configure the router automatically for you. Note: this program must be executed on the main computer when plugged directly into the providers modem unit and able to get on the Internet 4. Manual configuration: If the Setup Wizard CD-ROM from Step 2 fails to configure your router, you may need a manual configuration. While plugged into the provider modem unit and able to get online, visit http://kb.linksys.com, and search for the name of your Internet service provider for detailed instructions on manual configurations. 5. Router firmware: Upgrade your router to the latest firmware version. Please go to http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest version of firmware for your product. After the upgrade, be sure to reset the router, by holding in the router?s reset button for 30 seconds and reconfiguring it for use with your service (Step 3 or Step 4). 6. Malfunctioning equipment: You may have a faulty network adapter, or a bad router. Please contact Linksys Technical Support for further assistance.

How to upgrade the firmware on a BEFW11S4


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 (wired and wireless) on the router during the upgrade, so be sure to power off all other computers. 2. Go to http://www.linksys.com/download 3. Select the model number of the Linksys router you have. Make sure to select the correct router version as well, as firmware upgrades frequently vary by version. You can find your router version underneath your router after the model number. For example, ?BEFW11S4 ver. 2?. 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 http://www.winzip.com 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 192.168.1.1. 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.
