HELP!! Linksys BEFSR41

  petitewun 12:53 04 Feb 2005

We use the above mentioned router to share our broadband connection!
the other day we had a power cut!
since then our router will not power up! the power light flashes and none of the other lights come on.
I have tried to update the firmware but that isnt working due to the power (i think)
any idea why this has happened?
Is it had it? do we have to go and buy another router? any help is appreciated

thanks in advance

Have you tried resetting it by inserting the end of a paper clip into the reset hole situated near the row of lights on the front?

......and please let us know the outcome. My BEFSR41 has now been working faultlessly for around 2.5 years now linking three PC's on NTL cable BB with standalone modem. I've never had to press the "reset" so curious to know if it works OK. I'm not going to press it whilst this is working so well.

You could try Linksys support. Explain what happened in an email. They are usually fairly quick with response to queries click here

I think you need to get the sequcne of moden, outer and pc right.
It is something like: switch off pc, unplug power from cable modem and router. Wait 30 secs.

POwer up cable moden -wait until fully on ; plug in router and wait till fully on and then switch on pc.
