Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 802.11b Wireless Router/Switch + WMP11 PCI Card (BEFW11S4 + WMP11)

1 Answer

Installation problems. Ok, I got this router from a friend of mine. Right now, I am trying to get the router connected so I can play XBOX Live. But the problem I have is with the installation CD. I followed the instructions(Connect the Modem to the computer, do not connect the router yet.) and all I get is a message saying that my internet is not connected, even though I can get online and do anything a normal person could do.

Hi,

the CD is not really necessary for the installation.

Follow these steps :

  • Connect the computer to the router.
  • Open the setup page. Default password is admin.
  • In Setup, click on the subtab, MAC Address Clone.
  • Click Clone. Click Save Settings.
  • Turn OFF the Router and the Modem. Wait for 10 seconds.
  • Turn the Modem ON, wait for 10 secs.
  • Turn the Router ON.
  • Try going Online. You should be ONLINE !!!
  • Click on the Wireless TAB, change the name [SSID].
  • Change the channel to 11-2.462 GHz.
  • If you want to enable wireless security, go for WEP 64 bits.
  • Read this article about Wireless Security.
Hope this helps mate !
All the Best.

Could be a few different problems. One is your internet connection speed. If its below 5Ms I would say you are blowing out your bandwidth and it your ISP can't keep up, thus causing a slow connection or even some time-outs. If you are at or above 5M, check what ports you have your connections in. Some hubs are set specifically to take the ISP in a certain port and have it looped through another port. I'd start there.

Tip

if that didnt work
- try opening thies ports

TCP 53
UDP 53
TCP 80
UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074


Helpfull Info

Sometimes depending on the router brand, it's not possible to open your NAT, this simpily becuase some are not specificly designed for Xbox Live purposes. A good example of this is Belkin routers. These brands are most commonly made for Buissness connection servers. If you are experiencing a STRICT/MODERATE Nat with a Belkin router, the chances are you are going to have to deal with it, but that is not 100% of the time. If you've have attempted several techniques to open your Nat and the changes arnt happening, i'd recommend a 'N' powerd Belkin router, the most majority of these routers work 100% perect for Xbox Live, I myself oned one but changed due to a broadband switch.

How do I change the NAT firewall protection? (Open/Moderate/Strict)

Find your IP address number then type it in on your web browser, this will bring up all your switchable options where several options can be changed to your approval. The NAT firewall is one of these options which can be changed. (like I mentioned before, if you own a Belkin router, the chances are even after changing the fireall level, it will turn back to moderate or strict)

Networking problems


Ok you need to set DHCP OFF, go to Start>>RUN>>services.msc then scroll down until you find DHCP Client,. set to OFF & disable it. Reboot. Now login to router and ensure DHCP is ON. That is that problem sorted. So try that.

Cant find IP address


You need to make sure that DHCP is turned on for the router and the the Xbox is set to automaticallly get network settings. If not, then you will need to manually configure the adress and settings. If this is the case, please post back the address of the router and all other devices on your network and we can help you make a suitable choice and get it configured.

Connecting xbox live to my d link 1005d


Is the PC's connected to the D-Link able to browse the Internet? Sometimes the MAC Address will bind to certain IP's and must be cleared out when the Router is replaced. Please unplug the power to the router, X-Box and Cable or DSL modem. 1st plug in the power to the DSL/Cable modem until the "Ready" light comes on. 2nd plug in the power to the D-Link Router, wait 30 seconds then plug in the X-Box, power on and test. If a computer plugged into the D-Link will browse Internet then this is the solution to your problem.

Internet & xbox live sametime Netgear 8-port 10-base-t Ethernet Hub en108


Does the xbox work when connected directly to the internet (not through the hub)? If so, there may be some kind of conflict related to sharing your internet connection between the PC and xbox, and I'd reccommend getting a router instead of a hub.
