I am not sure where I can find the four to eight digit pin for my linksys model router, as I have tried everything listed under the router itself.


For that press RESET button of your router for 10 seconds then it will automatic restart and reset. then connect router to computer lan port with lan cable. then you can access it with default ip addresshttp;//192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.1.2 Type user as 'admin" and password as "admin" or "1234" or "password" or blank then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on wireless->security then note down the password.It's your password to connect wireless.
Let me know if you need further assistance. thanks for using fixYa.

I have fa linksys router model BEFW11S4. I NEED THE PIN NUMBER, WHERE CAN I FIND IT? I DON'T HAVE THE MANUAL OR CD OR BOX. PLEASE HELP


Should be on the White sticker on the bottom. If you need to login to the router to change settings You need to access the router setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar of a computer that is working with the router , then it will be asking you for a username and password , just leave the username blank and password is admin.
If you need to connect wirelessly to the router but there is a password you don't now you need to hard reset it: unplug it and hold the button on the back that says reset for 30 secs and plug it back in then connect. you must use a cord connection first to login to turn on wireless.

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.

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or "1234" blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
If you are not able to access router then RESET it .You can RESET it with reset button it is in back side of router press it for 10 seconds then all settings goes to defaults then you can access it with above link.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.

Be sure that you only enter the password admin - in small letters. The user name shuld be left blank (empty space).

This should work UNLESS you (or someonhe else) previously changed the password. Is this a brand new unit? If someone changed the password, you'll have to use the new password.

What Version is the the router? Did you buy it from a store?

New notebook on wireless network


Your IT guy turned broadcasting off. There is a reset button on the back of your router. Use a pin to hold the button down for a few seconds then plug back into the router with a hard wire to your computer.

Open a web browser on your computer and go to 192.168.0.1.

It'll ask you for a user name and password.

User: admin

Password:password

Charter High-Speed Cable and the BEFW11S4 Version 4


To resolve this problem, you will need to upgrade your router's firmware. Click ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/befw11s4_v4_v1.50.14_code.bin and download the file to your Desktop or My Documents folder (the link is to v1.50.14 firmware code). Once the BIN file has been downloaded, follow these instructions to upgrade the router's firmware: NOTE: Before upgrading your router's firmware, please make sure that the procedure is being performed by a computer that is connected directly to the Router with an Ethernet cable and not a wirelessly connected computer. Accessing the Router's Setup Page 1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. When the browser window opens, go to the Address bar and type in the router's IP Address and click on the Go button (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers). 3. A window will appear prompting for a ?User Name? and a ?Password?. Leave the ?User Name? field blank, and type in the router's password and click on the OK button to login (admin is the default password). 4. The router's web-based ?Setup? utility should then load. Upgrading the Router From the router?s ?Setup? page, locate the Linksys logo in the upper left-hand corner of the page. Follow the instructions below depending on which logo matches your specific screen: If the logo matches the image above ("Linksys - A Division of Cisco Systems, Inc."), follow these steps. If not, skip to the next logo version. 1. Click on the Administration tab. 2. When the ?Administration? page loads, click on the Firmware Upgrade sub-tab. 3. When the ?Upgrade Firmware? page loads, click on the Browse button, and browse to the location where the firmware file was downloaded (and possibly extracted) to. 4. After browsing to the correct location, select the firmware file and click on the OK button. 5. Click on the Upgrade button to upgrade the router's firmware. If the logo matches the image above ("Linksys"), follow these steps: 1. Click on the Help tab. 2. When the "Help" page loads, click on the Upgrade Firmware link. 3. When the ?Upgrade Firmware? page loads, click on the Browse button, and browse to the location where the firmware file was downloaded (and possibly extracted) to. 4. After browsing to the correct location, select the firmware file and click on the OK button. 5. Click on the Upgrade button to upgrade the router's firmware. After completing the steps above, the router's firmware should be upgraded successfully.

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.
