I have problems with my Internet connection, it used to work flawlessly but now its all messed up. :mad: My internet provider is Comcast and I have a modem from them which I used to connect to my Linksys wireless router (model BEFW11S4 ver 4). After encountering a problem yesterday and after wasting 8 hours, I was able to fix my internet connection. The bad news is that I can't go to the Linksys setup page, which is 192.168.1.1, I have no idea why it doesn't let me go. My IP adress used to be 192.168.1.10 but now it has changed to 24.12.212.146, and even after reseting the modem I can't go back to the default settings. I don't know what to do, the main computer is able to go to the internet but the other 3 connected computers that used wireless access cannot. I already called Linksys twice, but they didn't help me much. What shall I do? Any help will be appreciated.

I have the same router as you, but version 3. This sometimes happens to me, but I can usually access the setup page from one of the other comps on my network. If you put the wrong password in, I believe you have to wait a while to try again, as it cuts off access. Try unplugging your router's power while its running, and waiting about a minute. Then plug it back in and see what happens. This has worked for me a couple times. Resetting it is also good, but you said that you'd already done that. Hoe this helps!

Nothing helps...I am in dispair. I called Linksys and they are willing to give me a new router, but the problem is that I can't find my reciept so now I have to pay at least 70$ for a new router, and furthermore I won't know if it work on the 3 seperated USB wireless conectors that I have. :tazz:
Here is a picture of what makes me go crazy, and I am about to break this computer.

Okay, I fixed everything. It was messy and it took me 2 days and at least 3 hours talking with different Comcast and Linksys representatives who didn't know anything or how to fix it. Finally I was able to find a tutorial online and just when I was about to give up, I fixed it. I am too lazy to desribe what I did, but if anyone is interested or encounters a similar problem I won't spare any details.
