1 Power up and hard reset BEFSR41 to factory default (192.168.1.1) settings.

2. Connect a computer to one of BEFSR41's four wired LAN ports

3. Log on to the BEFSR41 by typing 192.168.1.1 into browser address box.

4. Setup
a. Change Device IP Address to not conflict with WRT54G (assuming 192.168.1.1 for WRT54G), other static addresses on your network, nor should it be in the range of the WRT54G's DHCP server addresses. 192.168.1.2 is likely to be a good choice for an address - if not in use on your network.
b. Select Apply

5. DHCP
a. Set DHCP Server to Disable
b. Select Apply

6 Connect a CAT5 cable between one of the numbered LAN ports of the WRT54G and the UPLINK port BEFSR41 (if yours lacks an UPLINK port - connect to one of the numbered LAN ports instead). There should be NO connection to the WAN/ Internet port on the BEFSR41. Do not concern yourself with WAN / Internet page settings on the BESFR41, because they are not connected.

7 Reboot the computers so they can get new, unique IP addresses.

Please rate this reply - good luck!

Not sure if you just want to expand the amont of computer you can connect to it or the wireless range but I would setup the BEFSR41:

  • Disable DHCP
  • Set an address out of the DHCP scope of the WRT54G
  • Connect them LAN to LAN if not use xover to connect them

Can i hook my westell 327w to a linksys befsr41


Absolutely, it is as simple as plugging in the westell to the befsr41. However all that will do is split the cable so it can accomodate multiple devices. BUT, the befsr41 is a wired router, to go wifi pick up a wireless router. This wireless router replaces the befsr41. I like the linksys (Cisco) 1000 or the 2000. If they have the Wrt54g thats best. Good luck! Dont worry it is pretty simple.

Router install ok, but don't connect to internet


if you are from the east coast,you need to configure your new linksys router for a ussername and password which is usually provided to you by your Internet Service Provider
if you are from the west coast,after you connect the new linksys, you must be good to go for internet usage.

Linksys router befsr41 model


Hi,
Since you do not know what has been changed. I would suggest you to reset everything.

I am not sure about your particular model.
But generally, Linksys routers have a small hole called "reset". It should be at the back of your router.

Use a pin, press the reset for few seconds (~30).
Now, everthing is reset.
You the setup CD which came with your router and set it up again from fresh.

hope it works :)
