I cant for the life of me get my new Linksys befw11s4 router to work with my computer and my dsl connection. I did everything according to the directions. My computer uses Windows XP, I'm just trying to connect via CAT 5 cables. The cables are sound (first thing I checked). I configured the modem through XP before I got the router so I could access the web, could that be the problem? Should I delete my previous configuration completely? Phoneline to modem to router to computer, right? I mean, I've tried EVERYTHING. When it tells me to enter the ip http://192.168.1.1 nothing happens, the computer says I'm not hooked up to the internet. Any help would be appreciated!
