Router problem: Linksys router (RV016) not working


Previously I asked..."I bought a 16 port router on Ebay,it seems to function intermittently ,while the Lynksis 8 port router does not seem to function at all.2 Gigs can I ship them to you for an estimate??????"

You replied with information on how to "reset" and test the routers. Unfortunately, both fail to connect to the PC, Digital modem, and web mgt. console. The "Diag" indicator light is solidly illuminated.

Can you assist with hardware repair, or suggest a service shop that can repair the hardware?

Thank you for your help!! Regards!

    of the known default a logins. admin with blank password,
    admin with "admin" password, etc. I'm stumped.

the best thing to do here is have a firmware upgrade which can be downloaded from the Linksys site. Base from experience (we have been using a lot of linksys products and currently we are using an RV016), these lock-up problems are caused by firmware problems and can be solved by firmware upgrade.

Probably, you're desktop's IP changed. This means that your port forwarding is sending the requests to the wrong IP address. Just update your IP address in the Applications and Gaming tab of your router, and it should start working again.

Router connection

Try to reset the router first. There's a reset button at the back of it, hold it down for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds, power it on. Make sure your Modem is connected to the Internet port on the router and your PC is in port 1.

Cisco and Lynksis Routers

Hi, you don't have to send it to me. I can help you with that. First we will check if the router is still working. Simply connect a computer to port 2 or 3 or 4 or 5, and lets see if the computer will get an ip address of, if it does there is a chance that this could work.

To checked ip address:

After connecting the pc to the befsr81, puss the reset button for 30seconds when the power is on, wait for 1 minute, reconnect the power. The power light of the befsr81 should be steady and the port light where you connected the pc should be lit.

Go to the computer. if pc is XP, click START then click RUN, in the open field type cmd then click ok, it will take you to the black screen. on the black screen type ipconfig, click enter. If the ip is that means that we are in business.

I'l wait for your next post so i will have an idea on whaT IS GOING ON.
