Wont reset and has erratic blinking lights. Tried power reset, reset button, etc.


Does the power light blinks when you press the reset button?
If power light is blinking continuously then I think your router is not working and you need a new one.

Blinking power light - router not working properly


Blinking power light on the Linksys routers indicate 2 things. 1st is firmware problem, 2nd is the worst one which is defective router. You can still revive it if you can reload the firmware. If not, it's a dead one and you need to purchase a new one. And man, your router is a very old one. You must switch to wireless G router, its 5 times faster than your wireless B and it only cost 30 or 40 bucks

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
