Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

I just got a Linksys WRT160N router. I cannot connect to the internet using the ethernet port in my pc. I can, however connect via a wireless card in a USB port. I can also use my digital video phone. When I run cmd - ipconfig/all this is what I get: Windows IP Configuration Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : mpg Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . : Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Broadcast IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description . . . . . . . . . . . : SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-50-2C-02-B0-97 Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection 4: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description . . . . . . . . . . . : IEEE 802.11g USB Wireless LAN #4 Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-11-A3-00-41-87 Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.103 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1 DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1 DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 209.18.47.61 209.18.47.62 Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Tuesday, August 11, 2009 9:05:27 PM Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Wednesday, August 12, 2009 9:05:27 PM I can successfully ping 192.168.0.1 as well as 192.168.1.103 It seems that the problem must exist with my ethernet port/driver...correct?

Linksys wrt160n will not broadcast the internet wireless or ethernet it will however broadcast a connection to the router not the internet. I have tried to re-set it, power down, nothing works. I have not...


Your Linksys WRT160N is a router that can be accessed via CAT-5 cables and wirelessly. You must configure the router though, for wireless use. If this is not configured or not configured correctly, then you may have problems using it wirelessly. Laptop computers usually use the 802.11g mode, not the 802.11n, at 54MB or with the right NIC in a desktop you can get 108MB. If it was working then quit without your doing anything, you may have to replace the router, but I doubt it.

Cant connect to the internet with linksys wrt160nv2


if this is DSL connection then you have to configure your modem before you connect router

follow this
first disabled wireless on your modem/router

.1) Turn off DHCP on your modem/router I am assuming this is verizon westell
2. Configure the first VC port to Bridge-Bridge mode
3. Keep hitting "apply" in the windows until the 7500 reboots
4. Plug the "Internet" port on the linksys to one of the normal ethernet ports on the modem /router
5. Turn on the Netgear and wait for the green Internet light to go solid

good luck if this does not work provide more info on your setup

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.
