BEFSR41 internet connection problems

  1. Hello,

    I am running Windows XP professional and have 2 comps and 2 printers on a BEFSR41 router in an office building. Internet connection is through T1 I'm pretty sure, but not positive. Internet connection goes to the router, and the router splits it up for the two comps.

    Recently, I plugged the internet connection directly into another computer. After that, the internet connection for everything else has stopped working.

    I have purchased a new router. The 2 comps and 2 printers can all still talk to each other, but cannot get to the internet.

    Any suggestions? Thanks a ton.

    have you configured the router to link to the upstream ISP?

    You will need to enable DHCP
    (or know the settings required for STATIC assignment).

    Use your browser to access (or sometimes 1.0)
    login and do the config.
