Question about Linksys EtherFast BEFSX41 Cable/DSL Firewall Router With 4-Port Swith/VPN Endpoint (S2182754)

1 Answer

How do I configure a BEFSX41 to be an access point (router only)? I've given up on using it to access the internet due to connection problems. I switched my Belkin 54G from an access point to the main router but I still would like to use the Linksys for extra wired outlets (plugged into the Belkin). I turned of NAT and DHCP. Is there anything else I need to do? What do I set the "Internet Connection Type" value to? Thanks!

If you have a modem and a router the two needs to have seperate Ip address. For exmaple I have a westell 6100 G modem with a wrt54g speedbooster router. I have my modem local ip set at 192.168.1.1 and my router local ip set at 192.168.9.1. I got my router on to do the dchp starting address with 192.168.9.15. Plug your cable from the modem into the wan port of the router and it sould work.

I was setting my configuration for my wireless modem to my internet modem using my disc I keyed in a wrong username and password how can I change it to the correct one please?


You can access the router through web interface and configure it. All you have to do is connect the router. Follow the steps given below: -
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (written at the back of router) depending upon the make/ model of your router
(unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password admin OR password.) and lookup for the security options to do the following: -

Next step is to secure it:
1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Settings" 2.Under "Security Options", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Apply
Also make the following changes (recommended): -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password admin OR password.)
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Need basic step-by-step instructions on how to install my router.


To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
  • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
  • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
  1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
    • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
    • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
  2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
  4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

This person seemed to have no problems with it and includes configurations.

I would also make sure both are the same version or same firmware, I have had trouble in the past with netgears having different firmware not allowing a vpn to be configured.

Step 1: Connect the Ethernet port of the access point to one of the Ethernet ports of the router
Step 2: Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet
Step 3: Check if the corresponding LEDs on the access point are lit
Step 4: After connecting the devices together, configure the access point’s wireless settings
Step 5: Open the access point’s web-based setup page
Step 6: When the access point’s web-based setup page opens, change the SSID, Channel, and Wireless Security.

3 PC's networked to BEFSX41 very slow accessing internet


sounds like your internet access is the slow down, not the router. You don't say if you have DSL or CABLE or what.  I'd check there. Make sure you are getting a strong signal.  Hook up one system directly, without the router and check the speed.

Forgotten Router Password


Hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds or more and the router will be restored to factory defaults. This also means that your configuration will be set to factory defaults also, so if your router is configured for your ISP you may loose your connection until you set the unit up again. The default password for the router is admin in lower case letters.
