Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router (12503024)

1 Answer

No Connection... We recently upgraded computers; we have a Waverider EUM3003 modem that the satellite connects to and when we run the cable from it directly to the computer the internet works, but when we run a cable from it, to the back of the Linksys router, and then to the computer the connection never establishes. We have tried resetting, unplugging, diagnosing, etc. but to no avail... any suggestions?

Have you tried doing the resetting in the following strict order?

1. Turn Everything off.
2. Turn on all satellite related components, wait a little then also turn on modem. wait 60 seconds until machine is up and IP is ready.
3. Turn on router, wait 60 seconds, allow IT to get its IP and setup itself.
4. Turn on computer.

Sometimes doing it in order is all it takes to make the machines act correctly.

My fujitsu laptop's internet is very slow


An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers. Optimize your internet settings with any reliable program like am using RegInOut to maintain my internet speed.

So is your Modem from a phone company like AT&T? It sounds like it is because phone companies use what is called PPOE which is where the modem is configured with a userid and password to get out to the internet.

Cable providers use DHCP and don't require a userid and password.

If your other computer works using the network cable but your toshiba won't work using the same network cable, I think the phone company has configured your modem to only look at and accept your other computer. You can tell the modem to use specific MAC addresses which are unique to every device that attaches to the internet. You want your modem set up to use a range of addresses, not a specific one.

I have an old hp laptop and a cable modem internet connection currently on a new computer. how do i go about configuring the internet connection from one computer to the other?whenever i plug the modem...


OUR YOU TRY TO CONNECT BOTH LABTOPS TOGETHER TO TRANSFER THE INFORMATION.

THE CABLE MODEM HAS AWAY TO CONNECT TO THE NEW PC.

YOU NEED TO CONTACT YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER AND EXPLAIN YOU HAVE OLD CABLE MODEM AND YOU WANT TO UPGRADE TO THE NEW EQUIPMENT SETUP BUNDLE, THEY WILL SEND YOU A BOOK, CDROM OR DVD, THAT WILL TALK YOU THREW THE NEW PROCIDURES OF HOOKING UP THE NEW SYSTEM.

THE NEW AND OLD SYSTEMS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE IN ANY SINCE BECUASE THE WINDOWS VERSIONS, UPGRADES, SERVICE PACKS, WHAT THE SPEED IS, AND IF YOU HAVE 16BIT, OR 32BIT OR 64BIT SYSTEM, THERE ARE SOME 8BIT SYSTEMS BUT I HAVENT SEEN ONE IN A LONG TIME.

Actually a router will not improve your speed, unless you are upgrading from one speed to a faster speed. A router is a device that controls the 'traffic' on your network. In the simplest explanation it 'routes' the uploads/downloads/etc across your network. It also enables you to have multiple computers access the internet through the same internet access such as dial-up modem, cable modem, satellite, DSL, etc.

If you are running a 56K modem for your internet connection, the only thing you can really do to improve your connection speed is to obtain a software program that accelerates the download.

There are different types of 56K modems, and some do have faster overall speeds but the speed is not a huge change.

If I am misunderstanding your question, please provide more details and I will be happy to respond with further details.

G router wont work through vista or satellite dish


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.

Can't get modem to work if I use the USB connection


Your computer is attempting to find the network connection through your LAN port. Your best bet is to reconfigure your network settings to seek its external network connection through USB, or better still, obtain a router(I personally recommend linksys wireless/basic routers due to stability), and simply use the ethernet connection through it. While this is bypassing the initial issue, it is also saving yourself a lot of hassle when it comes to retooling the PC's settings on the USB connection.
