Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.

First reset the router for 30 seconds. unplug the power to the router. wait for 5 seconds. Plug it back in.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Make sure that your router and computer are set to get their IP addresses via DHCP.
Either the router is not setup as DHCP server or your computer has a static IP address assigned which conflicts with the router settings.
Do you have cable or DSL service (in which case the router should be set to PPPoE)?
If you have cable service, just reset the router to factory default by pressing the reset button on the back for about 30 seconds.

Then go to your computer and
  1. Go to Control Panel -> Network Connections.
  2. Right-click your Local Area Connection and choose Properties.
  3. Scroll down and double click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
  4. Make sure that all settings are set to Obtain ...automatically.
Click OK two times (the second time takes a little bit longer, because the settings are applied.

If you have any more questions or need help with the settings, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Where does the phone line go in the lynksys box.


Phone Line?

You need a cable or dsl modem to connect to the internet. From the modem you run an ethernet cable to the "broadband" or "Internet" port of your router.
Also make sure your lynksys is a router, not a switch


Hope this helps

Lynksys is causing high blood pressure


Hello cyndilynn

OK, my friend, don't fret. Let's find out what the skinny is. First things first...

(01) Do you have the manual for your router?
If not, you can download it from HERE.

(02) Do I understand you correctly that you are able to connect to the Internet from one of your computers and not the other WHILE using the Linksys BEFSR41 router?

Some points to clarify:
(A) Your Linksys router (connected between your cable or DSL modem and your computer(s)) and your Linksys NIC (installed in your computer) are two different animals that serve different purposes.

(B) Your router should be connected to each of your computers via "straight through" (not "cross-over") Ethernet patch cables that run from the LAN ports at the back of your router to a NIC connection on each of your computers.

(C) The NIC and the ROUTER do not have to be made by the same manufacturer (in this case Linksys). Manufacturer's NICs and ROUTERs can be mixed and matched just fine.

I suspect the issue is w/ detection of your NIC on one of your computers. I doubt the issue has anything to do w/ your router.

If that is the case, please, provide details about the two desktop computers that you have tried the Linksys NIC in (one successfully, one unsuccessfully).

(03) What operating system is each computer running?

(04) Has the computer that you have been unsuccessfull connecting to the Internet through the Linksys router ever been successfully connected to the Internet?

For now, please, answer these 4 questions and provide any other information you can think of (the more details the better). Then we'll move on to the next step.

Thank you
BJ

Cisco & Lynksys befsr81 linksys router


Connect a pc to port 2 on the befsr41. Push the reset button for 30 seconds, unplug the power for 10 seconds. Check pc ip address, it should be 192.168.1.xx. If that is the ip address, the router is working.
