Question about Linksys BEFSX41 Router (DHBEFSX41)

1 Answer

Have a befsx41 router that has worked great for several years. Now all it does is the Diag, DMZ and power lights come on but It won't allow an internet connection. I get a pop message from my computer(XP)that says "a network plug is disconnected." I've tried the reset button but that doesn't do anything. Please help.

I have RV082 Router , and Diag Led is constant what to do


Checking the Router's LEDs

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router.

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router, the following should be lit:
  • 1 - 8 (LAN)
  • DMZ/Internet (WAN2)
  • Internet (WAN1)
  • Diag
  • System
kb16591-001_en.jpg

Checking the Router's LEDs
Step 1:
Make sure the System LED is lit.

NOTE: If the Diag LED doesn't goes off, you need to upgrade the router's firmware. For instructions, click here .

Step 2:
Make sure the LAN 1-8 ports is lit depending on the computers connected to the designated Ethernet port.

NOTE: If the LAN 1-8 port is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered on. You can also try connecting the PC using another working cable.

Step 3:
Make sure the Internet (WAN1) and DMZ/Internet (WAN2) LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet or DMZ/Internet LED is not lit make sure the Broadband modem is powered on and that the modem is properly connected to the Ethernet port







You can access the web-based user interface utility of the RV082 by using one of two methods:

  • Through the RV082 IP address (192.168.1.1 by default), or
  • Through its default hostname ("RV082")

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator)

· By IP address: Type http://192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of the RV082)

and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

· By Hostname: Type http://RV082 and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

2. When the username and password prompt appears, type admin in both the username and password fields. (admin is both the default username and default password for the RV082).

I have a LINKSYS Broadband Firewall router and only the Power and the DMZ will light up. I plugged everything exactly like the instructions said on the internet but nothing works. I have no installation...


Reset the router to default settings:

This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).

I am unable to connect Linksys BEFSX41 and Sonicwall 3060


Check out this post:

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,5336853

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.

Linksys BEFSX41 DMZ


Your core mistake is by setting up everything as a DMZ (I am not familiar if the PS3 requires this) but you must understand the reason it is titled "DMZ" is because it is truly no-man's land. DMZ turns off all protections or security. If this is directly associated with your PS3 your company sees it as a throughput for malicious activity. I would suggest going back and correctly forwarding the necessary ports individually for it to function properly. Otherwise you are basically making your router a straight port (very dangerous) with zero firewall. Remember DMZ stands for Demilitarized Zone. Meaning there is no police, army, help of any kind coming in. This is what your company's server (correctly) is detecting and blocking. If this leads you to a solution with few answers google and your company hold the keys for acceptable ports, etc. to make it work.

Linksys BEFSR41 V.2


Hi,

The only way to revive the router is by doing a reset. If it still won't work I hate to be the to tell you this but the router is busted. Consider yourself lucky that it worked flawlessly for eight years. =)

BEFSX41 and Microsoft PPTP


Microsoft uses IP Protocol 47 [GRE] for this secure tunnel. Provided that the PPTP Pass Through is set to Enable on the Router's Filters page and port 1723 is forwarded to the VPN Server, the Router will allow authentication and remote access into your network. The router will also allow you access remote PPtP networks from behind the router providing the PPtP Passthrough is enabled on the router.
