Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)

1 Answer

DL-634M Wan socket

We had a series of power fluctuations that affected our WIFI router. The WAN lead ceased to light. I checked the cables first if its cable related. I was able to use them without fail using a different WIFI router. When I tried connecting my computer through the LAN interface, The lead lights lit up and functioned normally. I have a hunch that the power fluctuations messed up the RJ45 socket for WAN. Is there a way to solder a new socket or to bypass the WAN into one of the LAN sockets? Any solution is appreciated. Thanks

Try to update the firmware of the router first and hard reset it.

To hard reset it, press the reset button at the back of the rouetr for 30 secs then unplug the power for 30 secs and then plug it back in. Check if that fixes it.

Are the lights on the router stay on or blinking ?


The power light should stay solid as long as the router is plugged in. The WAN light and LAN lights are solid when you are connected, and the connection is idle. The lights blink when traffic is present. The lights are off when there is no connection.

You said you can get connection coming from modem directly? Or did you mean the modem is going into the wan port of the router?
Did you try all the ports on the router?
Did you check the cable?
Did you try turning off the wireless on your the pc and connecting via e-net cable?
Make sure it is not the pc or cable.
Also, check and make sure a firewall is not waiting for you to add it to the trusted sites list.
Are you getting an IP when you plug in the cable and are the lights lit up on the router and nic?
I would make sure you got a connection to those ports via another computer before moving on, and try using all the ports with a different cable if possible.

DGL-4300 resets every few seconds


Try the following:
1. Hook up your router like you want it to be
2. After the WAN/Wireless lights turn off we want to HARDRESET your router.
3. There will be a small hole that requires a pen or paper clip to press...Hold this down for about 15 seconds, or untill the power light flashes on your router.

This might take care of it.

let me know.

You can try to reset your Router by using a pen or a paper click there is a little whole in the back of your router that you can click with a pen. This should restart the modem. If this doesn't work you can hold the reset button but this will restore the router to factory default settings
