Hi, You cannot connect across wireless protocols. In other words to connect to 802.11 n you need an "n" adapter.

Now, the router should be backward compatible & provide wireless g/b but you may find that when you search for networks it will be listed as a seperate network name (from the same router)

Try searching for this other network. Your router documentation should advise you of its default name & any set up process

What is the user and pass for linksys WAG16ON


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

My laptop is connected to linksys modem router wirelessly, model number WAG160N. The problem is it keeps being disconnected after 5 to 10mins or worst its only a matter or seconds that it will connect then...


make sure that you have no electronic devices especially cordless phones near the route(including baby monitors, halogen lamps etc)r. if that doesn't help, try changing the wireless connection setup from wi-fi protected setup to manual setup and change the wireless channel to 11.
you can do this by connecting your laptop to the router via an Ethernet cable first and then log on to the GUI page using the internet explorer.(default is 192.168.1.1). if you need more instructions regarding how to do this, please reply to this post.

Is the router for your use only or for a lot of people, if it's your own dedicaced router, simply reset it by the button on the back or the router should solve your problem.
If not working, by the router config; usually accessed through your browser, typing in the adress 192.168.1.1, find the security menu, and the MAC filtering option, deactivate it, and retry.
If always not working, we stay here...
