Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 Lost Access To The Admin Page
Nov 13, 2007
I have a BEFSR41 V2 working as dial in ADSL connection.While I changed my settings of the UPnP in the router I lost access to the admin page. Well most strange is that everything is working.I kept my internet access as well as the computer and printer access.The only thing I lost is access to the router admin page.The password it was not defaulted to admin, neither kept the password that I had set up.
One poster gives the password which is arbitrarily substituted but when I tried that (having had the same problem), I couldn't get it to work and had to reinstate factory settings and repeat the configuration from scratch.Now, for some reason, I can't even do that anymore! 'admin/admin' is no longer accepted, and if instead I try to open the configuration using the Setup Wizard CD I get an error message saying "Unable to connect..." and telling me to press the 'reset' button (which I have of course done, to no avail). Yet pinging the router produces an immediate successful response and my access to the internet is as before.
I have a BEFSR41 V2 router connected to a westell c90 modem and my provider is Bellsouth.net (AT&T). I have the modem set to PPPoE and DHCP enabled. I am using the router as a gateway. The router's status page indicates that is communicating with the modem. Release and renew works and I can detect the addresses of the modem. I just can't pull up websites. I am wondering if this router (12 years old) is not compatable with the service.
Have an Actiontec GT704 feeding DSL into a BEFSR41 which is connected to a WRT610N. Can access internet, modem and wired router from desktop. Can access wireless router from laptop. Cannot access internet from laptop or wireless router from desktop. Changed ip address for wireless router to 192.168.2.1 so no conflict with modem or wired router.
Moved into a new place, set up a connection. Server provider gives only one mac address, they set it on my router. They say that it should be working, make a restart and that's it. I did that but still no connection. Moreover, I cannot connect through the router at all and therefore cannot access router admin page to configure it either. Now what to do? Password for the router is correct. Even when I take down all the security, still I cannot connect.To be more specific, at first I could enter the router admin page, but since I didn't know how to configure it properly, I made some mistake. I think I choose setting "configure wireless network" and changed something there. After that I cannot access the admin page or connect through the router.
I have a home network with a wired BEFSR41 that, for a variety of reasons, MUST be manually IP configured (DHCP off). All computers and other devices connected to it are manually IP configured. I desire to add a device that cannot be manually configured, and needs DHCP. I therefore need to daisy-chain two routers with the second one DHCP on (and manual IP connection to the main network). The new device needs two-way internet access, but doesn't care if it sees any other current network devices. I've tried several configurations, none seem to work.
I don't have to completely reset my router as I have a ton of configs on it. Anyway, recently for some reason, I lost all access to my admin page. Cisco Connect also cannot find the router. Funny thing is that all of my wireless profiles work just fine. Meaning all of the computers in my home connect to the internet just fine using the router. Both the guest access and WPA connected machines.[url]...
I recently tried to edit settings on my E3200 and was unable to get to the page. I typed in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, made sure no proxies were enabled and tried on wired and wireless computers and all the times it said "page could not be displayed" i haven't not reset with the button on the back. I also did an map scan of the router and this is what came up
Interesting ports on 192.168.1.1: Not shown: 65531 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 139/tcp open netbios-ssn 443/tcp open https 445/tcp open microsoft-ds 1780/tcp open unknown
I have an AT&T Univese which is class G. I want to run it in class N.Do you think plugging my Linksys router into the AT&T will give it to me(class n)?If so, how do I get the linksys parameters set up? It giving wrong readings at its not connecting to the internet.
My internet supplier is Comcast. I have a problem with a URL that will not load or I could not connect to that site. Comcast said it was my router that was probably the reason. I have not had any problem in the span of using this model and version before. Should I be looking for firmware upgrade or a new router? Operating system is MAC OSX 10.5. Using router to network 2 MACs.
I have a BEFSR41 that often goes brain-dead and the DHCP stops working. I've tried three times to download and install new firmware but it always fails with a "pattern mismatch". My current firmware version is 2.00.02 and the file I am downloading is 2.00.04 build 8. Yes, I have verified that my hardware version is 4.3.The download file from this website is corrupted.
I have a Century Link DSL connection in my house and its working fine. I just got a new Linksys BEFSR41 v.3. I am trying to set it up for my PC, Xbox360 and BD player. Everything works fine when I plug them in to the DSL modem 1 by 1 but when I try to put the Linksys "in the middle"... nothing... So I'm pretty sure its not my DSL modem or connection.All the lights come up on the Linksys as they should (power, internet and the Ethernet) but for some reason it seems the internet not getting trought the router. When its connected and I pull up my internet browser I type 192.168.1.1 and it takes me to the linksys config site. Without the router in the same address go to the Westell site as thats my DSL modem. Everything looks fine on the config site. All the correct IP, MAC, DNS address are there and still no internet access on any of my device.
I have problem with Linksys BEFSR41 ver.4.2 (Firmware Version: 2.00.4 )When i plug the cable on internet port , router crash , can't see web configuration if get ip or to make some ather configure, only if unplag internet cable and restart the router i can see the web configuration .(i try to ping in local ip when crash 192.168.1.1 but not responding )in my computer i have static ip (192.168.1.5) and is direct connect with Linksys.i try it and with DHCP and plugent over LevelOne switch and over Cisco switch .[code]
in previous firmware they don't have in menu the server ip in wan pptp web configuration connection I have test with more than one Linksys BEFSR41 ver.4.2 and all router have the same problemWith ather router e.x. Cisco RVS4000 configured and working perfect in same network .
Comcast upgraded me to a 30 Mbps speed, and my trusty old BEFSR41 v2 doesn't cut it. Cisco promotes wireless routers with a 1 Gbps ethernet, I would rather have a wired router, and use a WAP that I can unplug when I am not using it, since, for now, I only connect my work notebook wirelessly. Most wireless routers also generate a lot more heat than a wired one does, and I don't need any more heat in my Houston home.A new BEFSR41 v4.3 is only 10/100 Mbps. There doesn't seem to be any 1 Gbps wired routers for home use. Will a new BEFSR41 give me 100% of the cable Dociss 3.0 speed, or would I need to get a 1 Gbps router to get the fastest throughput? Or do I only need to upgrade when the cable speed increases closer to 100 Gbps?If a 1 Gbps router is better, are there any simple business wired routers you could recommend?
I have recently been having difficulty with my router. We have 2 computers and our xbox hooked up to the router and for the last few days whenever both of the computers are in use we experience frequent disconnects. It does not happen when it is just one computer and the xbox running, but as soon as both computers are in use it happens. The disconnects are very brief but extremely frustrating when I'm trying to play a game. I have the most up to date firmware according to the linksys site
I have been through three chat sessions on this without resolution and support tells me just to factory reset. After some time (weeks) after a successful local login to the admin page subsequent attempt to login just hang. After entering the admin password the page changes and says "Waiting" under revolving circles. It will sit there for over 1 hour. I have tried IE, chrome and firefox on Windows 7 and Windows 8 on three different machines and it behaves the same. Of course I have to go through this same process with the support people every time and every time they come to the conclusion that I have to do a factory reset. But so far Linksys denies that there is a defect.
I have set up a second E4200 as an AP.Even though I’m getting a signal from it I can’t open the ADMIN page. Also, it’s NOT showing up on my main 4200 "DHCP client table'.I configured it as a static IP 192.168.1.145 during setup and still cannot get in. My ping to .145 comes back “timeout”!Since I’m getting a full signal from it, it must be working so why can’t I get in and why doesn't it show up?
I am using a Windows 7 machine and I'm pretty sure the ethernet cable that I'm using is functional, considering that I'm using it to connect to the Internet right now.I've been trying to get my router going for a while now and I'm pretty sure I've tried everything that the internet has advised. I've screwed around with the card speed, 10 mbps Half Duplex didn't work or anything. I've manually set the IP and related stuff to 192.168.1.x and the works. I've tried to manually run the setup, although that definitely didn't work considering that my computer can't even detect the dang router. I've screwed around with the wiring and restarted my router and modem constantly.
i tried to upgrade my BEFSR41 model 4.2 to a newer firmware (FW_BEFSR41v4.3_2.00.4.5_20080603_code.bin) and got a blinking power led. I've tried to power cycle (several times), reset (several times, 30/60 secs), unbrick (several times) and still have flashing power led. My connection to the router looks like:
Request timed out.Request timed out.Request timed out.Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64Request timed out.Request timed out.Request timed out.Request timed out.Request timed out.Request timed out.Request timed out.Request timed out.Reply from 192.168.1.2: Destination host unreachable.Request timed out.(and offline until the next reset)
I just have a quick question about the TFTP utilities that Linksys has. I tried to upgrade the firmware of my BEFSR41 v1 router using the TFTP utility for a BEFSX41 and it didn't work(I just hope I did it correctly).
So, the question is, are these utilities router-specific or they should work with other routers as well?
My cable modem works fine when not running through the router. However, when running through the router, the internet won't work.I tried unplugging the power and plugging it back in, as well as holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, but nothing worked.
I went a bought a brand new model V4.3. I had trouble installing it right from the word GO, but I did successfully get that acomplished, how ever one of the important features "logging of incoming and out going ip" won't work at all. I tried deleting the old logview.exe and rebooting everything, then installed the "new" logviewer.exe. Well absolutely nothing happens. I have double and triple checked the setting in the router...logging is turned on, the computer which has the logviewer.exe installed is the confirmed network ip i.e. 192.168.1.101 and I can and do access the internet and all other computers on the network from that computer.
