    I wonder if anyone experienced problems connecting MAC book via befsr41?

    I am having trouble making connection. MAC and Linksys does not talk. But at the same time I have my PC working. I have updated to firmware 1.46.2 aug2003.

    Any clues !!

    I used to have one of these, they were on sale in 2001 so are getting a bit old now!

    Is it the DHCP function that does not work? Router does not give IP address and settings to the MAC? Can you just put a fixed IP address on the MAC? If the router gives out auto IP's from up, then use, mask gateway the router, and DNS servers as per your ISP (see what the PC gets!)

    Firmware beyond v1.44.2 appears to have unpredictable consequences for Macs and network (see my recent post elsewhere on this site).
    My BEFSR41 v2 worked without a problem from when I bought it in 2001, running a network of Macs, PCs, a web server and FTP site. About a year ago, the FTP site just stopped working. I always suspected the router but don't want to upgrade firmware beyond v1.44.2.
    Time to move on.
