Re: cant go online wireless (working before)

Hi jamesone..

This router will not support vista laptops..and the warranty period for this router is only a single year..better you can go for advanced g or gs routers .. model no's like..wrt54g or wrt54gs..with a warranty perion of 3 years..

HI baby..
this is for u..
It seems that you are not connected to the wireless connection ..i think the operating system in your laptop would be fix this problem
right click > wireless n/w connection > click view wirelss network connection > click change the order of the preffered network connections > select your wireless network name > from preffered wireless network and remove it..and then right click wireless network connection icon again and try connect to the network.. you will get connect.. and will get an ipaddress..

If it is not working for your DSI, try going to your routers website and downloading a firmware update that would update it to version 4 (v4) and then your DSI should work!

Set up an open wireless network or with WPA encryption. The PSP supports WEP/WPA but not WPA2 or Wireless G, it's a B device.
Also use a short passphrase and DHCP to lease IP Addresses.

BEFW11S4 convert from wired router on Vista box has mouse problem

Absolutely. You seem to have answered the question yourself. There is no way that the router change can affect the performance of the mouse . 1. try this mouse now with another port in the computer. 2. Try this mouse in a different PC
Atleast that you isolate teh problem. This change in router has ntohing to do with a wired mouse's functions.

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.


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



IF STILL NOT ONLINE. Open internet explorer, type on the address field, 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


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

Drivers 4 Linksys BEFW11S4 ver. 4

Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.

Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?
