Try opening internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. After you do this it should prompt you for a username and password. If it does leave the username field blank and type in admin for the password. This will connect you to the router. If you typed that address in and did not recieve the prompt recheck the wires. Make sure your computer is connected to ports 1,2,3 or 4. Here is a link to the linksys website that has diagrams for this router:

I have fa linksys router model BEFW11S4. I NEED THE PIN NUMBER, WHERE CAN I FIND IT? I DON'T HAVE THE MANUAL OR CD OR BOX. PLEASE HELP


Should be on the White sticker on the bottom. If you need to login to the router to change settings You need to access the router setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar of a computer that is working with the router , then it will be asking you for a username and password , just leave the username blank and password is admin.
If you need to connect wirelessly to the router but there is a password you don't now you need to hard reset it: unplug it and hold the button on the back that says reset for 30 secs and plug it back in then connect. you must use a cord connection first to login to turn on wireless.

How do i make a password on my wifi conection..my router is linksys BEFW11S4 v.2


First, your router is old, go pickup a new one that supports the G standard, don't worry it will fall back to B standard or better yet get an N standard router. To setup wireless security directly connect a pc via cat5 data cable to one of the switch ports on the router (not the wan) and login to the web innerface, click the wireless tab, now look for the security or encrypted options. Most routers support WPA-2 encryption where you enter a phrase of 2 or 3 words if your router only supports web encryption go buy a new router. Save it, then go to your pc, disconnect, remove the wifi ssid from your managed wireless list refresh and search for the ssid of your wireless signal (name), now connect and the router should challenge you for your WPA pass phrase you setup in the router. Now your wifi ssid is secure and all connections will require the passphrase.

Linksys BEFW11S4-RM 4 port wireless router


This is an old router. Look at the power light. You must have a STEADY power light. RESET the BEFW11s4 by pushing the reset button for 30seconds. Unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 30 seconds. Connect pc to port 2 or 3. pc should get an ip of 192.168.1.x. If you are getting this ip that means that the pc is already detecting the router.

Good Day

Drivers 4 Linksys BEFW11S4 ver. 4


Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.

Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?

Configuring the BEFW11S4 for the first time


To configure your router to share your Internet service, please follow the steps below: 1. Check with your Internet Service Provider to make sure that service is active. You usually can determine a good link to the service if you can bypass the BEFW11S4, plug directly into the ISP modem unit, and get a good connection. 2. While plugged into your provider?s modem and able to get online, run the bundled Router Setup Wizard CD-ROM program that came with your router. This will configure the router automatically for you. 3. If the Setup Wizard CD-ROM from Step 2 fails to configure your router, you may need a manual configuration. While plugged into the provider modem unit and able to get online (Step 1), visit http://kb.linksys.com, and search for the name of your Internet service provider for detailed instructions on manual configurations. 4. Once one computer is able to access the Internet through the router, the router will then be configured. Other machines can now connect to the router without re-configuring it a second time. 5. If you are still having difficulties setting up your router, please contact Linksys Technical Support so that we may further assist you.
