I am running XP on three different computers and a network on a Linksys BEFW11S4 Version 4 router. I tried to update the firmware then realised I had installed the wrong version. I resetted my router and now I can't access my router settings through the default gateway and consequently the wireless network doesn't work. I am plugged in through the router and the IP address I get is my modem's. Please help.

Have you unplugged/replugged any cables? Sounds like your modem isn't connected to the router's WAN port, and it is just acting like a switch and passing you the public address. Make sure you connect modem to WAN port on router, then connect a computer to a port on the router labeled 1-4 (guessing). Then at a command prompt, type; ipconfig /release press enter, then type ipconfig /renew press enter. See if that gives you a 192.168.?.? address. If so, use the address that is shown as your default gateway to access your router. Make sure the WAN port is set to "Obtain IP Automatically". Do the ipconfig commands on the other computers and see if they are picking up the wireless again.

Did you check to make sure that your modem was connected to the router using a standard patch cable and plugged into the WAN port?
