Linksys Wired Router :: Power LED Blinking BEFSR41 4.2?
Jan 3, 2013
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)
Unable to stop the power light from blinking on a BEFSR41 tried updating the firmware.I have tried resetting the router using the rest button, for 3 seconds, 10 seconds, and 30 seconds, nothing works.Tried running the setup disk, but it does not see the router. Is there a repair tool that I can download?
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'm using an E2500 and the Power LED started blinking this week.From the manual, this means “Flashes slowly during bootup, during firmware upgrades, and druing a Wi-Fi-Protected Setup Connection.” We have a wireless printer (wireless disabled), and a Kindle that does use wireless. All other computers are hard wired. I have not started a Wi-Fi protected setup. The router has been in use since the third week in October, and is more or less OK even though the Power LED is flashing. How do I get the Power LED to stop flashing?
I'm having a problem with my WRT54G wireless broadband router. The power light is blinking and I can no longer access the internet. What should I do. I can't seem to understand the self-help on your site.
I have a problem with a LinkSys WRT610N router (v1).
I have just bought it used. The problems: I see the power led blinking all the time. I can't connect to 192.168.1.1. I do not notice any effect on the leds when pressing the reset button (I feel a soft click when I do that, but none of the leds seem to realize). The manual states that the led should stop blinking after the "self-diagnostics" ends.
My configuration is DSL connection (by AT&T, phone cable), a Siemens 4100 modem, an ethernet cable into the LinkSys router, then an ethernet cable into a Linux PC. Everything is wired. I see the green light of the LAN connection to my PC, the world blue icon and the USB icon stable on, a shy orange led on in the middle (wireless?) and the power blue led blinking. The PC is configured with DHCP, and I can access both the modem (192.168.0.1) and the internet. The gateway address is the one of the modem (again 192.168.0.1). In summary, the ethernet of the router seems to work, but the router is completely transparent, inaccessible, unconfigurable, apparently unresponsive. Trying to connect to 192.168.1.1 (the supposed default address of the web interface of the router, which is different from the 192.168.0.1 of the modem) I get a timeout error, and I can't ping that address. The modem is configured to handle the PPPoE connection, which I am not sure what it means but the text description suggests in this mode I should be able to access the router, provided that its address is not conflicting with the modem's. If I disconnect the modem from the router, DHCP does not get any address. If I force one, 192.168.1.1 still does not respond to pings.
So Is it normal not to notice any reaction when hitting the reset button? is the object just broken, except that the ethernet subsystem still works?
My Wireless-G WRT54G router has a blinking power light and the startup software says "Unable to connect to the Router! Check that the Router has been connected to the computer, and that your Ethernet adapter is working." I tried uploading the firmware but I can't get to the router page to update. Is there a known problem or solution here or am I just going to have to find the router page?
So I recently upgraded from a WRT54GS to a WRT160N v2, all was well and good for about 3 days. Then I would lose my internet connection every 5 minutes or so, it would fix itself by the time I could open up command prompt and start pinging to pin point the problem. I decided I would update the firmware to see if that would fix the issue. Since doing that the power light has been blinking non stop. I've tried restoring it to factory defaults by holding the reset button for 30seconds, turning it off for 2 minutes and back on. That little blue light just keeps flashing. I can't even access the router setting page using 192.168.1.1. My OS is Windows xp x64 sp2, and I have DSL.
I am on a surge protector and we lost power last night. This morning we were stilling experiencing a brown out but now the power is back 100%. I've walked through the E1000 router reset and not matter what I do, all the lights except the power light blink rapidly and dimly. Could the router be fried even though it's on a surge protector???? It's less than 6 months old so hopefully still covered by warranty.
No download available and none available via Linksys Live Chat or FTP and having spent the best part of the week trying to find relevant firmware on other forums I decided to come here to get answers to the following questions, hopefully from version 1.0 experienced owners or not.
#1. Can the firmware of version 2.0 and 3.0 be reduced to flash version 1.0?
#2. When diagnosing the blinking power light issue by connecting directly to the router and the network card using "ping -t 192.168.1.xxx" which network address do I use, 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2 to 2xx?
I get a reply using 192.168.1.1 but I'm not sure that works when using the TFTP Utility if it's the wrong address on my Laptop to ping?
I have a Linksys WRT54GS vers 7.2 Router on an iMac OS X Leopard. The other day I was in the middle of downloading an upgrade for the router when Firefox gave me this message: "Firefox can't find the server". I was no longer able to access the internet, and the router's green power light was left flashing. It flashed for over 24 hours. I tried unplugging the router and shutting down the computer, then plugging in the router and turning on the computer. (I don't have a modem.) The light was still flashing. I tried pressing the logo button for 5 seconds. Still flashing. Tried pressing the reset button in the back. Still flashing. 'I can't get on the internet or into the router. Linksys live chat gave me a link to "Upgrading the router’s firmware using the TFTP utility", which involves a download, but I can't download anything because I can't access the internet.
I've seen related to flashing power lights on the router involve fixes via firmware upgrades off a PC.I'm on an iMac os 10.6.7. The WRT54 used to work as a wireless modem a couple of years ago. Tonight, it doesn't. power light blinks. Can't access any webpage interface for the thing. Reset, power down, computer restart, cable modem turn off don't change anything. Is there anything that can be done other than tossing the linksys? If that is the only option, are there wireless routers more suitable for a Mac?
If I conact from the modem to the pc I have internet so it must be the router. The power light is blinking along with all the port lights. Power light is blinking one time slow 2 fast. Have tried holding the reset button for 30 seconds and unpluging for 30 seconds. Can not go to the ip address it times out. New firmware is not avalible.
My wireless router is WRT54GC ver2.0. When I plug the power cable, all the LED light blinking including the power LED light. I try to find the firmware in the website, but here only have the version 1.0.
I have a Linksys E2500 and recently the power led light on the back of the router started blinking. The router itself seems to be working fine. I can access the router and the router seems to be assigning the IP addresses fine. I did look up the issue on the knowledge base and tried all the solutions but the light is still blinking. Not sure what to do anymore.
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 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 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?
