Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 Crashes When Accessing Specific Website

May 9, 2010

I am experiencing loss of internet access when browsing to amazon.com.  In addition to losing internet access, I am unable to connect to my BEFSR81 router when this happens.  To resolve I have to walk over to my router and reset it by cycling the power.
 
This issue has been reported by other users of the BEFSR81 too: URL
 
Details: My BEFSR81 is version 3.0 and is running firmware version 2.51.4

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 Keeps Losing Wired Connection To WAP54G?

Apr 11, 2012

I have a WAP54G in my basement shop, wired to our main router upstairs, which is a Linksys BEFSR81.  I'm not sure if this is an issue with the WAP or the router.
 
I only use the laptop computer in the shop every couple of days, but I leave the laptop plugged in and on most of the time.  I used to have the power settings such that it didn't power down completely even after a long time.  With that setup, if i didn't use the computer for several days, it would find that the connection to the router had died.  The wireless link would report that it had a solid connection, but I couldn't connect to anything.  Power cycling the WAP always fixed this.
 
Recently, I decided to save some wear & tear on the laptop drive, and adjusted the power settings to go to standby after a couple of hours.   Now, it seems I can't even go one day without losing my connection.
 
I am running the latest frimware in the WAP, and the router is version 3.1.  I can't check the firmware version on the router at the moment, because the web interface is giving me a blank screen.  I know from past experience that I will have to power cycle it to get it to talk to me again. 
 
In any event, it seems like the router connection to the WAP is timing out.  I set the router "client lease time" up to 10000 a while back when I first had this problem, but that is clearly not doing the trick.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 Was Not Functioning Well?

Jun 18, 2011

My router was not functioning well so I decided it might be a good idea to reinstall the driver package via the admin upgrade page. Since then it doesn't work at all. The power light flashes constantly now.

Linksys Wired Router :: Using BEFSR81 And Two 360 XBoxes?

Apr 8, 2012

Problem (1)I was told that having two (2) gaming systems on the BEFSR81 router will cause both xbox machines to loose connections.   My kids demonstrated this lockup with the Xbox.  I think its because the Xbox connection is seeing 1 IP address for both game machines.  Question is there a way to fix this without getting two DSL modems with two different IP addresses ?   
 
Problem (1)My router BEFSR81 locks up at least once every 3 days and then randomly also.  We reset it is by unplugging the power to the router and it reboots and returns to normal.  I also notice that the router is quite hot on the top, so I put a small quiet fan on top and the router now works longer before it locks up.  (All green lights flash together or all on solid). So I thought gaming machines might be the reason for the lockup, we disconnected the xbox(s) and the router still locks up on occasion.  I have read the other forum and found that Amazon could be a problem since I have been logging, I turned logging off but I still have the same lockup....Is my router dying a slow death...

Linksys Wired Router :: Upgrading Firmware BEFSR81 V3 On A Mac?

Mar 14, 2009

I'm trying to upgrade the firmware on my BEFSR81 v3 cable router (firmware version 2.45.xxx) on a Mac.  I accessed the interface via Safari browser, followed the instructions, got a message saying not to interrupt the process, but it never completed.  So I tried it again (downloaded another copy of the firmware update), and same thing.  No choice but to interrupt it.  My internet connection seems to be working fine, but now I can't access the router via the browser.  I don't think the firmware actually updated.
 
Should I power down the router and then reset it?

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 With WRT54GS In Same Network?

Sep 13, 2011

I currently have a LinkSys BEFSR81 connected to my cable modem as I need at least 6 wired ports for my house network.  I also have a WRT54GS that is currently unused, but I would like to add it to the network so I can have some wireless connectivity as well. 
 
Assuming that it's possible, what's the best way to combine these two units into the same network?  Can the WRT54GS simply be connected downstream from the BEFSR81 via one of the open ports?  I'm assuming that I'll have to change the IP address on the wireless unit to make it individually accessible for configuration, status checking, etc.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 V3.1 Firmware Downgrade?

Feb 20, 2011

I recently updated the firmware on my BEFSR81 v3.1 but would now like to revert to the previous version.
 
Where I can find the earlier version? I've got  2.51.4, build 006 Aug 21 2009 and need the one before.
 
It's not a critical problem, but more of an annoyance. I power everything here off one big switch which goes off overnight. Before the update I'd just switch it all on in the morning and everything would, after a minute or so, work fine. Now, however, I have to power up the router a minute after the modem or it just sits there doing nothing. That's OK when I'm here, but if it's just the wife she can't reach the back to do it.

Nov 6, 2011

I want to use my old BEFSR81 as a switch only and for whatever reason it doesn't seem to allow me to do that.I've disabled DCHP but I don't see a way to disable the router.  Is there some trick into using this router as a switch?

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 V3.1 Blank Admin Pages?

Jan 28, 2010

BEFSR81 v3.1 Current firmware 2.51.4 build 600 (09-4-2009)The Web Admin pages become dysfunctional after the router has been up 3-4 days displaying only a blank white page. Viewing the page source shows that the HTML is incomplete.I am not sure of the exact firmware version where this problem originates, I noticed it after flashing to 2.51.4 build 400 but cannot remember which version was running before the update. Just flashed to 2.51.4 build 600 last week hoping the new version had corrected the problem. Still broken.The router remains completely functional but the Web interface does not work correctly after 3-4 days.I have tried re-flashing the firmware and have gone as far as resetting the router both before and after the flash, even tried 30/30/30 resets but the problem with the Web interface remains.Re-booting the router every 3 days is not the best “solution” as my network is running DHCP. I would rather not fall back to older firmware as ver 2.51.4 build 400 corrected the DHCP errors on my Windows machines and decreased the initial connection time when machines boot up. I have read in this and other forums where others are having the same problem with this router/firmware but have been unable to find a working solution which leads me to believe the actual problem resides in the later firmware builds.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 Unable To Connect To Internet

Mar 2, 2011

My BEFSR81 router has never been a problem for over 10 years.All of a sudden I can not connect to the internet..I only use the router for connecting 2 PCs to the internet modem. I have not changed any configuration. tried my IPS COX recommendation to disconnect the power for about 1 minute then try again with no luck. CoX said they tried pinging my router but could not get a reading. While waiting for them to come up with a solution, I hooked one of my PCs directly to the modem. It worked. So I tried it with the other PC. But it didn't work right away. It kept trying to dial up for a connection. I finally got the WIZARD to get it configured correctly. I assume it must be a router problem because either one of my PCs can get an internet connection when hooked to the modem.  I did not pusue any further with COX, THEIR AUTOMATED TROUBLE SHOOTER WAS GETTING ON MY NERVES.Should I take the time to resolve the issue with the router or buy a new or refurbished router? If the task isn't too complicatged, I am willing to try and fix it.

BEFSR81 Crashes Every 6-8 Hours?

Nov 22, 2011

I have a Motorola SB5101 Cable modem, it connects to a Linksys BEFSR81 8-port router. A WRT54G and a vonage voip device also plug into the BEFSR81 lan ports. I am running Win 7 (32bit). When it works, everything works great, but eventually my pc goes link dead, there will be a little yellow apostrophe over the network icon down in the toolbar (next to the clock). I dont have to reboot anything except the BEFSR81 and then everything comes back up and runs fine for a few more hours.

I was having a problem viewing the {Url } but it has worked for the past year. I just purchased a new router E4200 and thought that would reserve the issue. When I first installed it I could get on the site and then about 10 minutes later when I restarted my MacBook I could no longer get on the site. I can't get on it on my MacBook, or iPad but I can when I'm on 3G on my phone.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Can't Get To A Specific Website

Oct 23, 2010

I have a Linksys E3000 and everything is working fine...until one day this last week.  A website I go to all the time stopped working.  The website is Martini in the Morning, url....  It's a great internet radio station.  I listen to the station via other resources, but I can't get to the website which has lots of features I use.The specifics are that from any of the computers connected to our network, I can't reach the site.  When I plug a computer directly into the Comcast modem, I can reach the site.  I have changed nothing that I am conscious of and everything was working until Monday of this last week.I thought it wasn't making it out of the router, but a TRACERT shows that I am.  I have a desktop running Vista, 2 laptops running XP Pro, an iPad and none of them can connect to that site.  My iPhone can't connect when it's on the network, but when it's on 3G, it can.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Don't Allow To Access A Specific Website?

May 18, 2012

I just bought the new EA4500 router and I'm experiencing problems to access the my bank website [URL] I can't access this website.
 
I thought that the problem could be with Comcast, but I tested my Mac with a cable directly connected into the cable modem and it worked fine. I was able to access every site.
 
It could be a problem with browser security, but I even tested with different computers (Mac, PC's, Ipad, Smartphones) and none of them were able to access the [URL] wirelessly.
 
It seems something strange with the router. I tested some forum solutions (MUT, QoS) but they didn't work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cannot Reach A Specific Website - E3000

May 15, 2012

I am trying to access [URL] with a Linksys E3000 router. A few days ago it was working fine, and between then and now I made no changes to my network, it just stopped working one day, I assumed the website was down but it turns out that I am able to access the website fine on other networks or via proxies. I also hooked up my computer directly to my modem and I was able to connect to the website fine, but when I try my wired connection to the router I am unable to connect, I have tried Google DNS without success. I know this is a problem with my router, not my modem or computer or ISP.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR81 / Add Device Names To DHCP Device Table?

Nov 30, 2011

My BEFSR81 is my primary router and has DHCP turned on.  The router's DHCP range is set to accommodate 12 devices.  I have three computers wired to it and their Host names (as specified in the set-up of each computer) show up in the router's DHCP device table.  I also have two printers (one old Brother HL5250DN laser printer and one new HP Photosmart Premier C410a inkjet printer) connected and there are blanks where the Host name should go.  I would like to be able to tell which printer is which when I am looking at the DHCP device table.  How can I get a names associated with each printer's IP address in the router's DHCP device table?  (The real problem is that the router seems to have both printers at the same IP address (192.168.1.100) and if I can get one of them to change I'd like to know which one it was!)

Linksys Wired Router :: EA2700 Accessing Internal Web Servers

Sep 20, 2012

I just moved from a Linksys wired router to the Cisco EA2700 wired/wireless router.I have three web servers on my network that serve up content via standard web URLs.  For example, pretend www.domain.com pointed to the WAN side of my EA2700.  Port forwarding routes port 80 traffic to the server, located on an internal, private IP (ie, 192.168.1.21).All works well when accessing these servers from outside my network (I checked this via my mobile broadband connection).  But when I'm on a workstation internal to the same network as the servers, I cannot connect to the servers via the web URL.  Of course, I can hit them via the IP or an internal-only DNS network entry.  For example, when on 192.168.1.55 on a desktop machine, and I type the URL in the form www.domain.com, it just hangs and times out.  I was able to do this on the old Linky router.  Traffic should go stop at the router and be re-routed back internally to the port-forwarded server - but it does not.
 
I have to route properly via the web URL and not the internal DNS name or IP addy, as I am running virtual web servers on IIS on one of the servers.Is there a setting I failed to set on the EA2700?

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N - Error 101 When Accessing Specific Site?

Jan 5, 2012

We are working on a new site which is hosted on Rackspace. http:[url]....For some inexplicable reason we have intermittent connection problems when trying to access this site and the wordpress backend. We're able to access it for an hour or two and then it becomes unavailable and this can be for an hour or more. During those time we get an "Error 101"Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset.This problem is almost certainly unique to our location / ADSL connection.

We've had people at other locations check at the same time as we cannot access the site, and at that same time they can. We've also checked out the site using the 3G network and it's accessible when we're having problems from our ADSL connection.We have tried using fixed DNS addresses (Telecom's, then Google's and then Open DNS) We have binned the Dynalink RTA1025W ADSL Modem thinking it was an issue with the modem. We tried the standard Thomson Telecom Modem but that caused even more problems (binned that one too.) 

We have now installed a new Linksys WAG160N but we have the same issue (but a prettier modem)Discussions with Telecom Support have been fruitlessWe connect (in case it's not already obvious) via Telecom ADSL network. I'm based in Manly, Auckland NZ. Our connection is otherwise fine although we have noticed on some of our devices recently that Facebook and Google.co.nz are unavailable for a short time. Often coming right within 30 seconds or so. This may be related.The domain name Travelcafe.co is registered with GoDaddy. I'm about to move it to Rackspace as well. (Rackspace think not, but I'll do it anyway to keep things clean.)
