Linksys Wireless Router :: Replacing BEFSR41 With WRT54G / Can't Connect To

Jan 2, 2012

I am trying to replaced our wired router (BEFSR41) with a wireless router (WRT54G V5) that we have floating around.  When connected through the wireless router, I am unable to access  I went to the command prompt and The IP Address and the Default gateway are both blank.  I even tried to manually set the default gateway to but I was still unable to connect.  Currently, I am connected directly to the modem so that I may use the internet for troubleshooting.  I've tried releasing and renewing the ip, but it will not renew.

Linksys Wired Router :: Replacing A BEFSR41 V2?

Feb 20, 2011

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?

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 Could No Longer Connect To Internet

Jan 11, 2011

I upgraded the firmware on my BEFS41 v4.3 to the Ver.2.00.4 Build 8, off the cisco website. After I received the successfully upgraded message, I could no longer connect to the internet, nor could I connect to the router's configuration page. I tried to do a few hard resets and connecting it to other computers to see any other computers could connect to it, no luck. I tried connecting one computer just to the router, without the internet plugged in, and tried to ping but I received a "transmit failed, error code 1231." Is there anyway I can access this and change the firmware, or am I screwed?

Linksys Wired Router :: Q1000 / BEFSR41- How To Connect Both Modems

Nov 9, 2009

I'm on a Mac running OSX.  Qwest (my ISP) recently swapped my DSL modem for an Actiontec Q1000 combo modem/router.  The Q1000 firewall is not nearly as configurable as my Linksys BEFSR41 (v3) router.  I'd like to use the Q1000 just as a modem and use my Linksys as my router so I can access it's superior firewall configuration.
How do I physically hook the hardware up?
How do I configure the 2 items.  The Q1000 uses as it's web address.  The Linksys uses  I have 2 Macs on my network, an iMac (OS 10.5.8) and a G4 (10.3.9).
Besides web browsing & email, I also have a torrent client I use (Azureus).

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 Can't Connect To Any Hosts On WAN Side

Mar 3, 2012

I have a BEFSR41 (wired) router. On the LAN side, I'm using all static IPs, and have the local DHCP server turned off.  On the WAN side, I'm using DHCP. When I plug my laptop (which runs Windows 7, and has a static IP set up) into the router, sometimes I can't connect to any hosts on the WAN side, even though other machines on the LAN side can connect to hosts outside.  If I run Wireshark, I see the following happening over and over. [code] When this occurs, the laptop can nevertheless connect to the embedded web server running on the router, and, there, I can tell the router to release and renew its WAN-side DHCP lease.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 Setting Options Which Can Allow To Connect To Xbox

May 8, 2011

I have been having some issues connecting my PC to my XBox360 using the wired approach, it seems to be massively temperamental to a point i decided to not connect the XBox via my router and instead put it straight into my spare network port on my PC. The basic jist of mynetwork confirguration is something like this: Internet cable > Virgin Media 256 Modem > Linksys BEFSR41 Router > PC. I had no issues with this setup, but as soon as i wanted to add my XBox into the mix, things got tricky. I plugged the network cable from my Xbox originally into one of the ports on my router and then went through the settings on both my Xbox and router. Again, i had absolutely no confidence in doing this myself since i don't mess with it, but after reading guides i finally got it sorted. Well, partly sorted. I was able to connect to my Xbox Live, however i was unable to connect to my Xbox to my PC (To stream files onto the Xbox). This was what i wanted to do, i didn't really want to use the Live anyway. So i went off to work again. In the end nothing was working, so i opted to connect my Xbox directly into my PC - So it was no longer connected through my router. I could SEE my PC on my Xbox, but i was unable to connect to it to stream anything. I then opted to disconnect my router (For no other reason than to rule it out) - Sure enough, the very second i disconnected the router, i was able to instantly connect to my PC and was streaming straight away. Once i was streaming, i was able to reconnect my router and that was that. But if i turned off my Xbox i would need to also turn off my router the next time i wanted to stream. How can i fix this so i don't have to continually turn off my router, is there a setting somewhere in the options on my router which can allow me to connect to my Xbox?

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 V2.1 Can't Connect To Router?

Feb 15, 2013

I have a BEFSR41 v2.1 wired router which was put aside when replaced with a wireless router. Today I wanted to hook it up and use it again, however my computer was not automatically assigned a connection, and I didn't remember how I last had it set up, so I simply reset the router and tried again.
Since the reset, I have not been able to get a connection to the router from any computer using any port or any cable. The LED lights for ports 1-4 do not light up, and setting a static IP address still does not permit me to connect or even ping the router.
The LEDs light up as normal and go through the patterns during the boot-up process. Once that is finished, all LEDs are off apart from the power light (which is steady). If I plug in the modem to the WAN port, the links light is solid and the Act LED blinks. A loopback connection between ports cause the LEDs to light up fine (tried all port combinations).
If I unplug the power, hold the reset button 15 seconds, then power it back on, plug a connection in from my secondary router to the WAN port, the router shows up in the Active Clients list, but I cannot connect to the IP listed, even if manually associating the IP with the MAC address listed..
Because of all this, I can't re-flash the firmware even using the tftp method, since it fails to connect to the IP address in the first place.
What I have tried so far:

 - 30/30/30 reset (multiple times)

 - manually setting static IP with gateway

 - manually associating the ip with the mac address of the router with netsh

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Cannot Connect To Internet

Sep 22, 2011

Router: WRT54G
Network: 802.11g (and I'm using WEP)
Wifi Adapter: Intel R Centrino R Ultimate-n 6300 AGN
No. of devices connected to wireless network: 5

My problem is that whenever 2 devices have joined the wireless network, I will not be able to do so despite placing the laptop or iPhone right next to the router, hence getting excellent signal strength. Or, if I am already connected to the network, I get knocked out repeatedly. I don't think it is a hardware or software issue because I'm still able to connect and get a very stable connection after someone leaves the wireless network.This is getting frustrating and I have tried all ways and means to resolve this but to no avail. Is this about some setting that I can tweak, e.g. to allow more users onto the network? But this has already been configured to '50'!

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Cannot Connect To FTP Sites?

Feb 1, 2009

I could not log into any of the 4 FTP sites that I normally update without immediately getting disconnected. The message I am getting from the servers is "Port command failed, error loading directory - disconnected". To save some time and posts, here are the facts....1.) It is definately not my DSL modem. When I connect directly with the modem, without a router, I can connect to FTP fine2.) I have already done a /flushdns in IPconfig.3.) I have already done the typical power off/power on/reboot procedure numerous times.4.) I have already tried PASV mode, and tried turning PASV mode off as well.5.) My login information is correct, and I have problems on multiple sites.6.) This problem has been reported before by other users of WRT54G, but the other forums I see have no solution to the problem.7.) I have already tried using other PC's and different FTP clients on my home network. No matter which PC or laptop I use behind the router firewall, I can't maintain FTP connection. 8.) I have never had to open ports to be able to connect to FTP, since I am the one doing the request. I did also try opening ports 20 and 21. 9.) XP firewall is disabled. 10.) I have tried both ethernet ports on my PC. But then again, that is irrelevant because none of my other PC's which connect wirelessly, can connect either.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Unable To Connect On PC / Mac

Sep 8, 2010

I my parents have a WRT54G linksys router, they have a DSL modem.  Everything was working fine with the wireless network until one random day POOF! the wireless no longer would connect on laptops.  However, the internet is working just fine with the computer that is hardwired up throught the router.  Since this is working it lets me know that the router is working fine and routing the connection through hardwire.  Hard wired works on laptops but all laptops are unable to join the network and most of the time it will not show up in the list of available networks.Even my iphone wont connect saying unable to join network.  We bought a brand new linksys router and same problem.  I then took his old router to my house and hooked it up...and WOW it works as it should all devices can connect...even my iphone.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V5 Won't Connect To Internet?

Oct 12, 2010

I am replacing a WRH54G with a WRT54G.  First I unplugged everything and waited 5 minutes. Then I plugged my ethernet cord from the DSL modem into the WRT54G. Then I plugged in the DSL modem. I waited for the lights to stop blinking. Then I plugged in the WRT54G and waited for LEDs to show connection. Then I plugged the ethernet cord from the WRT54G to the computer. Then I turned on the computer. I was able to access the Interface for the WRT54G but I was not able to connect to the internet. I tried power cycling multiple times both the DSL modem and the WRT54G. I was unable to access the internet. Finally I plugged the WRH54G back in and everything worked fine. why the old WRH54G can connect to the internet and the WRT54G cannot?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Unable To Connect To WRT54G

Feb 20, 2010

Checked cable router (brighthouse), working. Router (all lights on but network traffic flashing indicates one way traffic). So I go to my wife's computer. It too has no connection. I open my laptop to connect to the wireless, IT WORKS! Pull power on Cable Modem and Router, wait 60 secs, power up Cable Modem and then power up Router (I know it wasn't nec to do modem but I wanted a clean start). Wireless is still working, no LAN. I can't even connect Linksys software says it can't detect the modem. Reset time, hit the magic button in the back and sure enough everything stops working (which I figured). Still can't connect to it, and now I've lost wireless. I connect computer directly to Cable Modem and type this message. Seems to me that Router has failed.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V6 - Unable To Connect Wirelessly

Dec 14, 2011

Im running a linksys wireless router, WRT54G V6 with firmware 1.02.8. It worked before I moved after I moved I can't connect via wireless. hard line works. i've tried resting to factor, i've tried not using ses, not using custom ssid. I've rest it like 5 times retarted the computers. I've hit the little cisco systems button on the front, this makes it work for a few minutes. When I hit the button it will go out then come back on white, and blink around 1-2 blinks per second, it will do this for maybe 1-2min. then stops and changes back to orange. and i get nothing from it. the WLAN light is on like it's working but I cannot detect it with my desktop or laptop, can i can detect 3 other routers around me. I've tried pretty much everything i know to do, tried flashing it, updating, about the only option i have left is throwing it out the window.
