Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 V4 Keeps Dropping Connection

Feb 4, 2013

For a number of months now, our Internet connection in an office of 5 computers, 2 Macs, 3 windows boxes (1 as dell  laptop) has experienced the connection of the Internet dropping off.The timing of the 'drops' is usually in the morning, when the Dell Inspiron M510 either boots up or wakes from sleep. Typically the solution is to turn off the modem, the router and switch, wait a few minutes, then turn the switch, the router, then the modem back on. Our connection via the modem is through AT&T, via a non-static IP addy.Our router is a BEFSR41, v4, with firmware up to date (circa 2006) It's becoming a daily chore now, just about, and is getting to be a bit of a headache on some days.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 V3 And HP 6500a Printer - Keep Loosing Connection?

Apr 6, 2012

have a HP 6500a All In One Printer in the network with a BERSR41 V3 router. I am using a Imac with this sytem for printing and scanning. For some reason I keep loosing the printer when I try to scan? I have it set to a static IP, and can not ping it, but can access the printer throught the network with the HP Utility. Am I missing something in setup on the router that causes it to keep loosing connection?

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 Two Wired Routers In Non-standard Hookup

Sep 14, 2011

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.

Linksys Wired Router :: VOIP Dropping Connection 2-3x Per Day

Feb 13, 2013

I have a strong internet signal with good SNR coming out of my cable modem, then a nice short 3ft cable going to my linksys VOIP router (I think it's a SPA 2102). Whether I have anything downstream plugged in or not, the "phone" light on the VOIP router goes off every once in a while and when I check I find that I've lost both dial tone and Internet - basically everything downstream of the VOIP router. Have tried every variation on configuration you can imagine (feeding just one phone, feeding the entire phone wiring to the house, nothing at all plugged into the phone jack, no computers downstream plugged in, replaced all the cables, ...). I've replaced BOTH the cable modem and the linksys VOIP router and the problem continues. My cable company says my signal is fine. They suggested a signal amplifier but the coax comes straight to the modem, no splitter, and I'm always seeing 6-7dBmV. My phone company says their router must be losing signal upstream and refusing to reconnect, especially now that we've tried replacing their VOIP router with no change. Any chance I got two 'bad' routers in a row? Not sure what they did for setup parameters. I'm not particularly tech-savvy but have read a lot since seeing these issues, have run my own ping and tracert checks and everything seems to be wonderful... but then most of the time everything IS fine. When I have phone it's crystal clear and when I have internet it's nice and fast. I sometimes go 24hrs or so without a drop, but other times I'm resetting 2-3x in a couple of hours. All I do is power off the VOIP router and back on and everything is fine, for a while. After first getting VOIP things were fine for 4-6 weeks.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Desktops Dropping Wired Connection To E4200

Jan 2, 2012

I lost all Internet connnecitivity on my Linksys e3000.  After determining that my cable modem was connected and working correctly, I pulled the e3000 and put my old wrv54g router in place.  Wireless worked, but all wired connections showed link but no other apparent connectivity.  Neither of my desktops could get a DHCP lease.
At that point, I purchased and manually installed a new e4200 router.  All worked fine.  Both laptops connected via wireless and both desktops via my house LAN.  Until this morning (Monday).  Wireless is working just fine, but both wired computers show 100 Mbs connections on an unknown network with no DHCP.  Checking status shows packets going out, but nothing coming in.  Checking LAN status on the router shows that both ports are connected, but it does not appear to receive anything from either desktop.  All was fine last night.  Oh, the router is on 1.0.03 firmware.
I have tried about everything I can think of.  Configurations both on the router and the desktops (one Windows XP, 64 bit and one Windows 7) and all seems fine.  I have disabled and reenabled the network connectors, rebooted both the router and the computers, etc.  Nothing seems to work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA 3500 Dropping Wired Connection When Online Gaming?

Mar 30, 2013

I  just had Comcast setup my internet and it is really fast. 30 down, 10 up, 40 ping, my connection to my computer (wireless) is very fast and my online gaming (wired) is not laggy at all.The problem lies with the connection dropping when I am online gaming. I connected directly to the modem and there's no problem at all. I connect to my Linksys EA3500 and once I start playing in an online game, I disconnect from Xbox Live and am dropped from the game... anywhere from right away until about 10-15 minutes into the game. This is  the only time where my connection falters at all, otherwise it is great. But I play online a lot, and competitively, so I obviously need a stable connection.I have not had this issue with my previous ISP in New York, Time Warner and that connection was much worse. I'm thinking it must be a setting on the router that is causing this, but I can't pinpoint what. I tried automatic AND static connections from my xbox to the router. On the static connection, I even put a DMZ on it, but to no avail.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 Can't Be Upgraded

Mar 27, 2013

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.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 V.3 Not Working With DSL

Feb 3, 2011

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 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.

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 Ver 4.0 Disconnects

Jan 10, 2011

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

Linksys Wired Router :: Computer Not Detecting BEFSR41 V4.3

Dec 23, 2010

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.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 V1 Which TFTP Utility To Use?

May 30, 2006

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?

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. and I can and do access the internet and all other computers on the network from that computer.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 How To Use A Packet Sniffer

how to use a packet sniffer for a night school class, but lack a hub at home. I only have a BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router with 4-port switch.Is there any safe way to use active sniffing methods? Would the "Mac Flooding" I've heard about work, or do I need to find some kind of ARP poisoning method?Unfortunately while I do recall using Etherpeek around 10 years ago, it was at a very basic level and I'm out of practice.Is there a way to make the switch act like a hub?

I have a BEFSR41 V2 router connected to a westell c90 modem and my provider is (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.

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41 V3 Limited Or No Connectivity

Feb 22, 2011

i have a BEFSR41 v3 firmware v 1.05.00 - i have been usuing it for at least 7 or 8 years now - at one time i had 3 computers hooked up and they all three worked fine. Now i have 2 plugged into the router - both are xppro machines - the one i am now works with no problems. The other computer however has the limited or no connectivity problem.I used this router for years without any problems then one day this ip conflict message started to appear.Then one day i started getting this weird ip conflict message on both computers but only occasionaly - it never caused any problems - if you ignored it - it would simply go away.Then one day computer #2 got the limited or no connectivity message - i simple reboot fixed it. This solution worked several times. Computer #1 has never had any problems.
Sometime later the limited or no connectivity problem reappeared and this time a reboot did not work - i searched for a fix and decided to try changing the link speed from auto sense to 10mb half duplex - this solved the problem. This solution worked several times.Sometime after that the limited or no connectivity reappeared and after some searching i upgraded the routers firmware - this solved the problem.Sometime later the limited or no connectivity reappeared and this time i had to actually uninstall the NIC, reboot and then let it redetect the NIC and then the problem was fixed. This solution worked several times.Sometime later the limited or no connectivity reappeared and the previous solutions did not work to fix it - after searching for a fix i discovered that i could simply unplug the router and the plug it back in and this would solve the problem. This solution worked many times.Sometime later (wich brings us to 3 or 4 months ago) the limited or no connectivity reappeared and this time after searching for a fix i was able to fix it by updating the NIC drivers. Problem solved.This brings us to now - the limited or no connectivity has reappeared and none of the previous fixes correct the problem.When i originally set everything up it worked immediately out of the box.
DHCP is enabled - everything is set to obtain an ip address automatically.At first the event viewer reported The IP address lease for the Network Card with network address0xxxxxxxxx has been denied by the DHCP server {The DHCP Serversent a DHCPNACK message}.Now the even viewer just tells me it is using ip address 169.254.xxxxxx - (not the exact message but i didn't wanna go back and look)I have tried all of the previous fixes to no avail. I've tried shutting everything off and turning everything back on - i've tried resetting both the modem and the router - i've tried upgrading the firmware again. I even downloaded LELA and installed it on both computers thinking maybe it would detect and fix the problem buy no such luck. LELA simply tells me that computer #1 is working normally. On computer #2 when i installed LELA the first thing it did was try to find the router and it tells me it cannot find tried ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew - i've tried it one after the other and also a reboot in between. I've tried clicking on repair in the LAN status - i've tried even tried different cables and switching ports on the router.
