I have the RT31P2 installed and working fine. A little cracking on the phone line, but that is a different topic. I want to add more computers to my network at home and have an old Linksys BEFSR41 router. I would like to piggy back that one on the RT if possible. I did try the simple plug it in and see if it works, no luck. Not very experienced on hooking up routers. Can this be done? If yes, how.

it absolutely can be done. What you will want to do is connect an ethernet cable from port 1 of your rt31p2 to port 1 of your BEFSR41. I would then plug a computer into port 2 of your BEFSR41 and get to the configuration page by typing 192.168.1.1 and disable the DHCP in your BEFSR41.

If you want these computers to be able to share files and share printing, you will need to change the ip address to 192.168.15.250 or something high like that. 192.168.15.1 is the ip address of your rt31p2 and it will give out ip addresses that range from 192.168.15.100 - 192.168.15.150 or something like that. So you want to be outside that limit.

Anyway, if you do these 2 things, you should be able to have all your computers in the same subnet: 192.168.15.xxx which will then let you configure a home network to share files and printers...

I think your password is admin for a BEFSR41 though I cannot say from experience. Only from what I saw on the internet.

hope this helps.

This looked like it worked.

Another issue is that I can't find the right transformer for the BEF. Can I use an output 12v, 800 m/a or do I need the 9v? If so, does Radio Shack carry them?

Thanks again,

Jeff

Using an adapter that is a different voltage rating, especially a higher voltage is just asking for trouble. The router will most likely not work and you have a good change of damaging the router beyond repair. It is always recommended to use the exact power adapter that came with your router, if this is not possible make sure you match the voltage ratings exactly.

I would get a power supply that has all the details exactly as it is stated in the bef router including voltage and amperage.

I found the exact power supply rating for the BEF. I just can't get it to work. Not even getting to the Linksys 192.168.1.1 page. Not sure what to do.

The port lights, all 3 are lit up, the power light is on and the LINK light is on in the WAN light tree.

Any suggestions before I make a frisbee out of it.

Try resetting the router first by holding down the reset button on the back of the device for 15-20seconds. Then see if your computer is actually getting and IP address from it. You can do this by going to the start menu and clicking on run. Type in cmd in the box and click ok. In the new command prompt window that comes up type ipconfig and hit enter. If you see a valid IP address there, make note of what the default gateway is. This default gateway address is what you need to use to get to the Linksys configuration page.

see if there is little indented button on the back for resetting the router. Keep it pressed with a pin or paper clip for 30 secs and see if that resets everything. Otherwise, it'll make a good paperweight.

That worked to a point. I was able to get the BEF to work on one of the computers on the network. I was able to open up the internet browser, but was unable to connect to the other computers on the network. How do I set this up? I thought the main computer that has the RF router would automatically recognize the BEF and be good to go. What now?

Jeff, my first post can explain to you how to set up your BEF so that it does not interfere. I encourage you to look at my first post again.

Basically you want all your computers to have the following ip addresses: 192.168.15.xxx so that they can all talk to each other. But you also want to make sure that the BEF is not connected to the rt31p2 through its internet port but through one of its 1-4 ports called the LAN ports. And also make sure to disable DHCP in the BEF.

Also change the ip address of your BEF to something like 192.168.15.250

hope this helps.
