Hi all,
have just installed new firmware version 1.50.14 on my LINKSYS BEFW11S4 but
cannot now get it setup from the setup CD. Any ideas?
cannot find earlier versions of firmware either to go back.

Don't use the setup cd.
1.50.14 works just fine on my BEFW11S4v4.
Stomp on the reset button for about 20 seconds to reset to defaults.
Plug in a WIRED connection between your computah and one of the LAN
ports on back of the router.  Don't try to do the configuration via
wireless.  Open an MSDOS window with:
  Start -> Run -> cmd <enter>
  IPCONFIG
Verify that the gateway address is 192.168.1.1.
Fire up a web browser and point it to:
  http://192.168.1.1 /
Note the extra "/" at the end.  You should get the login screen.

Re: LINKSYS BEFW11S4 firmware problem


Have tried configuring the router manually with no success. I think it maybe
that my blueyonder cable modem has problems with the new firmware or the new
firmware has issues with it.
I cant find the older versions of firmware on the linksys ftp site they only
seem to have the 50.14 version which is the one I just installed.
The CD worked perfectly to set up the router on the old firmware so I feel
that is probably my best chance of getting this problem solved.
Any help in finding older versions of LINKSYS BEFW11S4 firmware of  muchly
appreciated

This version of firmware will not even write to the router.
Are you able to write older firmware versions to this router?
When I tried this version 1.50.10 it said it couldnt connect to server
whereas 1.50.14 will quite happily wipe the flash and update the router.

Cheers for your help tho.

Where are you downloading your f/ware from ,your e-mail addy implies UK and
having checked the International download it quotes ver 1.50.13.
I think you will find that 1.50.10 & 1.50.14 are for the US.
