Question about Linksys BEFSX41 Router (DHBEFSX41)

1 Answer

I'm attempting to upgrade the firmware on my Linksys BEFVP41 to the latest version. When I click the upgrade button, the progress bar starts, but then the page goes blank before it's halfway through. After that, I have to restart the Router to access it again, and the firmware has not been upgraded. Can you help? Mike

Try downloading the firmware again.
It is a possible corrupted file from the site.

Hi Friend,

Please upgrade the firmware of the router. You may refer to the link below:
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/linksys
Enter the model number, hardware version and download and save the latest firmware of your router. Open the router page by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the web browser and enter the username and password(if any set by you), else leave the username blank and type admin in password. Click Administration (in the router page) and then click Firmware.Click browse and select the firmware file that you have saved on your desktop and click upgrade. Once the upgrade is over turn off the router for 30 seconds and restart it.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Regards
Chiranjeet

Bittorrent causes router to drop internet connection. using latest linksys firmware. other firmware available?


Did you port-forward?
Do hard-reset of the linksys. If possible do firmware upgrade even if you have latest version.
Nothing works out then change firmware to dd-wrt (google it).

When I have my lynksys wireless router hooked up


The problem here is with the Linksys router that you have, what you can do here is to reset and reconfigure the router . To reset it press and hold the reset button of the router for 10 seconds using a pen or a paper clip while power is ON and then after that power off the router for 10 seconds and then run the setup CD to reconfigure it back....

My side buttons on my ipod wnt work neither will any of the other buttons you can see the screen only when it one the computer charging


  1. Connect your iPod to your computer and attempt to synch your ipod.
  2. Backup all the files on your iPod onto your hard drive. Restoring your iPod will wipe out all your music.
  3. Download the latest version of iTunes from Apple.com. Since iTunes is set to update itself periodically, you probably already have the latest version already.
  4. From iTunes, click on your iPod name in the left navigation bar. It will bring you to the summary page.
  5. Click "Restore" on the updater and your iPod will restore itself to factory settings (also resulting in losing all of its music).

    1. Click the prompts to indicate that you really want to go through with this. If using Windows, you will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. Holding down the SHIFT key before clicking the Restore button will allow you to browse your computer for version of firmware you wish to use. The 4 possible restore options are:

    2. Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    1. If using a Mac, a progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.

    2. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
    1. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
    2. Follow the instructions of the iTunes setup assistant. Let iTunes autofill it with music again and you will be set to go!

    How to upgrade the firmware on a BEFSR41


    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 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 (BEFSR41) as firmware upgrades vary by model and version. You can find your router version underneath your router after the model number. For example, ?BEFSR41 Ver. 3?. 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.

    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.
