Linksys befvp41 router not testing well
Posted on 2004-09-25
I have a broadband router (surfboard) , dynamic dhcp, and a befbp41 linksys router. As I can be assigned two iP addresses, I dangle the linksys from a test machine and (when I have time), try to get the router up and pinging the web.
The problem is that I cant get the a connection. And I tried to upload the firmware updates, and an error was returned. So i've gotten absolutely nowhere with it.
My question is, how can I switch everything off (vpn, firewall, etc.) so I can get a first success? I've jumped through all the hoops of resetting, checking the Ipconfig, release and renew, the macs match, the client shows up in the table - but still no success.
Eventually i'll reach the point of having the VpN up, but for now I'd just like it to connect!
Any help or suggestions appreciated, I wish there was a 'test configuration' CD ;)
