  • BEFSR41 V2.1 and Windows 7/Vista compatibility

    I have a wired V2.1 BEFSR41 with 1.46.02 firmware.  He works very well with several varieties of W98SE, W2000 and XP machines over the years.

    When I installed VMWare a few years ago, I noticed that the Vista VM does not have to connect to the router.  As I was testing just local stuff, I don't bother to investigate or solve the problem.

    Now I have a new HP Windows 7 computer, and do not access when connected to the router.  The diagnosis think not that the cable is connected.

    When I plug the modem DSL directly in the box of W7, I connect to the internet.  In addition, I notice that when I plug the modem into the area of W7, there is some flashing lights on the adapter inside the box.

    However, when I plug the cable from the router (the same who normally works fine with XP machine) in the Windows 7 box, none of the LEDs on the network flash card.  This is probably an allusion to the fact that things do not work.

    I tried to disable the IPv6 protocol.  That did not work.  I have the latest firmware for the V2.1 according to the Linksys support site. I tried another cable.  I tried several resets since pinhole at the front of the router, several power cycles and reboots of the box of W7.

    So I guess the BEFSR41 V2.1 with 1.46.02 is not compatible with Vista and Windows 7.   Any ideas?

    Yes, if you have the dual operating system on your computer, you can play and record games on xp, start the computer in Xp and you can play the game.

    If your computer is actually turn off and isn't just pass in "Sleep" or "Hibernation" during a scan, and this happens only when you run an analysis, then I must say that yes there is a problem with this security on this computer suite.

    Personally, I'm worried about the security suites.  They developed gradually bigger and bigger, which requires more system resources, and when they fit well with a particular operating system, they can interfere with its normal functions.  My preference is to use a good antivirus and Windows Firewall.

  • HP J4680 AiO: HP J4680 AiO and Windows 10

    Installed 10 Windows from Windows 7, installation went well, with only two points.

    HP is my printer/scanner HP J4680 AiO will print but not scan more solutions center program comes with a white screen.   I followed the instructions given to Brian in the previous post.

    -authorized temporary folder

    -installed v14.8.0 hp full feature software and drivers

    The printer works well (do not fax set up system have) but the scan does not work.   When I try to use the solution Center, I get a white screen.  Right-click on the screen and the compatibility test running can do nothing.

    System has worked in Win 7, but not win 10.

    Just to try a work-around, I tried running Win fax and scan and received the message... cannot communicate with the documents folder.



    Hi, after contacting Richard Bradley, HP VP, he put me incontact with a live support person.     Bottom line after trying to install the HP J4680 AIO we have determined that the drivers are not available in Windows 10, also that the application of scanning and Capture will not work effectively either.   Part of the J4680 printer will work but not the scanner.    After reviewing several other brands, I see that the same thing is happening with their current printers / alumni.   The HP representative said that new pilots could come out in October until January.

    So I decided to go back to windows 7 which was easy, there is an application in the control panel.  Once there I still had the same problems with the printer, so I deleted all the programs of HP printer, turned off the firewall and antivirus program (do this first, incidentally).  I had try to install and remove several times but after several hours was able to get the printer works as it should.

    I'll wait 10 windows drivers may be available.

    After writing to Mr. Bradley, a response was quick and the accompaniment of the victim has been most helpful and knowledgeable.  I had criticized HP and their market after service, but frankly, I was impressed by this gesture.

    Hi Newgirl11,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Answers site!

    We don't have much information about the compatibility of the game with Windows 7, you can see the link below.


    To work around the problem, you can try to install the game in compatibility mode and check if it works very well.

    To run the troubleshooting program compatibility Troubleshooter

    1. Open the program compatibility problems by clicking on the Start button, then Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooting, and then click Troubleshooting. Under programs, click on run programs for previous versions of Windows.
    2. Follow the instructions contained in the resolution of the problems.

    If you are unable to install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the Troubleshoot utility, navigate to the program setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. This utility is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
