Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)
Hi, im struggling to connect to the internet using this router. I've used many other routers/hubs/switchs before, but this one seems "stubborn". I've read numerous different post and forums but I just can't seem to get it working. Every cable/cord is plugged in properly, I can connect to internet using direct connection or even the "uplink" port on the router itself. Im not really a networking genius, but i've setup many routers/modems/pcs for friends and family for a few years. I just wanna know if someone can please help me lol :(
Please follow the steps in order to resolve the issue;
I hope you have a cable internet connection.
1.Make sure the connections are properly fitted as mention below:
The wire coming out from the modem should be fitted into the WAN/INTERNET port of the router. Connect the computer to either of the four LAN ports.
2.At the back of the router there is RESET button, push and hold that button for 30 seconds and then release it.
3.Turn off the router for 30 seconds and turn it on after that time.
4.Type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla) and hit enter
5.Enter the Username and Password(default password is admin and leave the username blank)
6.Under the setup page make sure "Obtain an IP Automatically" is selected and DHCP server is enabled. click save settings
7.Now Click MAC Address Clone
8.Enable MAC Clone Service and click the TAB Clone
9.Click save settings and turn off the router for 30 seconds and Turn it on after 30 seconds.
I hope this will resolve the issue.
