Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router (12503024)
I have configured the router via wireless but when I try to connect a CAT 5 cable between the Laptop and the router, the connection toggles between connected ("acquiring network address") and not connected ("network cable unplugged"). Is the 4-port ethernet switch faulty or am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance.
Try these steps:
1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.
Try these and hope it will help you ;-)
