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

We have a blitzz router in our basement and a Lynksys wireless adapter in our desktop upstairs. The internet is not connecting today and we can't figure out why


Turn off all routers and the modem (you may need to unplug them from power)
Turn the modem back on and wait for the lights to settle down (about a minute)
turn on the router connected to the modem, and wait for it's lights to settle.
Turn on the other router, again wait for the lights to settle.
Now turn on any of the PC's (preferable one wired to a router) and your internet should be back.
If not, post a reply here and we'll get more information and troubleshoot further.

Hello there. i have two lynksys WAG200G routers.


Are you wanting to expand the ports available to your internet connection or simply increase the coverage area. I suppose it's the same in the end. What would you like to accomplish?

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.

Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G v6. cannot connect - out of range error message


I believe you will have to lynksys for help. I had a simmular problem and had to have lynksys walk me through resettint a linksys bios problem with that particular problem. You have to change somrthing to set the bios to 10.10.10.103
Or something like that.
I believe you can find Lynksys toll free number on their web site. I also believe it to be with the documentation.
