Linksys Cable / DSL :: Devices Continuously Lose Wireless Connection To WAG160N?

Oct 16, 2011

I have a WAG160N with firmware V1.00.16 (version 1 device).The router is connected via ethernet to my main iMac running Lion 10.7.2, although the issue's I'm having have occurred for some time before upgrading to Lion or its's latest update.Firstly, devices I connect to the router wirelessly such as my iPad and iPhone will allow me to use the internet on said devices for about ten minute then the internet will simply stop.   The device is shown as connected (checking the wifi settings on iPad etc show the router is still seen).   If I switch WI-FI off on the device, then back on, internet is restored.   It's not an internet provider issue as I can use the net all day on my ethernet-connected iMac without a problem.My printer is connected to my iMac via USB and shared with other devices.   It is seen on my Macbook which connects wirelessly via the router.   If I try to print from the macbook, the print job will not progress until I re-start the router.   Likewise, there are applications that I sync between my ipad and iMac via iTunes with my mac connected via the USB cable.   The iPad will not bee seen by the iMac unless I re-start the router.   My Apple TV will only sync wirelessly with the iMac if I re-start the router.

I have a WAG160n v1 annexA with lateset firmware which was working good. Until yesterday, when I founded continuously resetting.

Nothing change. I connected it to my laptop and then I powered off both of them and powered them on, first my modem and then my laptop.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N - Devices Lose Connection To Internet

Apr 18, 2010

I have a disconnecting problem with my WRT120N (Linksys) wireless router. Sometimes all wireless devices lose the connection to the internet, and the access to the router administration page ( becomes impossible. In this case LEDs of power, internet and wireless are lighting without flashing. This problem usually occurs every 48 hour, and there was no way to make a reconnection except turning the router off by unplugging the power wire and plug it again…
I hope find a solution for this problem here
Other question: are there any problems in Firmware Version: v1.0.04

Note: currently I use Firmware Version: v1.0.01

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N - Wireless Connection Set Up

Dec 19, 2012

I have a WAG160N that I've used as a wireless router for ages. I have changed broadband providers and as they have supplied a new router I decided to use that and connect the old WAG160N via a Home Plug AV network and effectively use it as a range extender.
I have read some of the other forum posts and made the following changes:
1)   Set up internet as Bridge mode
2)   Set DCHP server as relay
When I connect via an ether net cable it works brilliantly but as soon as I try to connect wireless I can't talk to the internet.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Repairing Wireless Connection Doesn't Appear

Oct 6, 2009

WAG160N gateway and wireless dropouts. Wireless connectivity to file and printer shares will fail after an unspecified duration of time.Internet access may also drop. Repairing the wireless connection does not appear to work. Saving the gateway settings without making changes appears to temporarily fix this issue (some users have reported this does not work). Manually performing a power cycle of the gateway will temporarily fix this issue.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Modem Just Dropped Wireless Connection Constantly In Various Time Period

Sep 28, 2012

I've bought a "WAG160N v1.0 Annex A" almost 2 years ago. I never used it's wireless feature untill we moved our house. Now it's like 4 month I'm using its wifi feature and I've got to admit I'm really frustrated by its functionality!
For months the modem just dropped wireless connection constantly in various time periods. Somtimes it went like 2 days without any problem but some other times I had to change channel every 15 minutes for it to get back working. And yes it didn't get fix until I changed the channel, otherwise clients had to wait several hours for a 50/50 chance of reconnection. Now It's two days the changing channel trick no longer works. I tried all channels and even put my notebook next to the modem but no luck. The notebook sometimes connnects to the access point but disconnects after a few seconds. Somtimes it doesnt even detect the SSID of my WAG160N modem. Some friends suggested that the wireless hardware of my modem is broken and no longer works but I'm eager to know if it is broken why is it still broadcasting and sending signal.
I've tried everything from upgrading and downgrading firmware to turning on and off the modem several times and changes modem position. And even tried the G-only 20MHz mode.We are at a very crowdy place. Using inSSIDer I could pick about 15 other access points. Only few of them are using Wireless-N, most of them are using Wireless-G.This is the inSSIDer diagram of my WAG160N modem from a client: [code]

Linksys Cable / DSL :: DPC 3008 Lose Internet Connection?

Feb 24, 2013

I do love your products and I am not just sucking your *beep*, but could you please update the firmware on this modem (DPC 3008). There are a lot of people that are having issues with losing their internet connection when it comes to this modem. It doesn't matter who the ISP is, doesn't matter what we try to do to fix this. I read somewhere that after you updated the firmware in 2011 on this modem is when your customers starting having issues. Now I just bought this modem a few weeks ago so I don't know for sure. All I can say is if this issue doesn't get resolved, I am going to smash the *beep* out of it and never recommend your products to anyone as well as never purchase another product from you. I like you I really do, but I am tried of losing my internet connection when I am playing my games or watching movies. People have stated that they removed your modem for a different brand and their issues were resolved. I am giving you a chance to show me that you value your customers and you will resolve this issue in a timely manner

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Share Connection On Port 1

Dec 11, 2011

I got a spare WAG160N lying around which I want to test to see if I can get a better range with it than my current router.My internet is connected via a cable modem which I connect to the ethernet port 1 on the WAG160N - which in my experience with other wireless routers - will work and broadcasts internet through wifi. However I can't seem to get it to work.After doing a bit of searching I found that some people say this isn't possible on the WAG160N while others say it's possible if I switch the port 1 to "Use as WAN port" in the ethernet setting tab page (Tried it, still doesn't work). I can obviously connect to the router setting page but no internet is flowing through (And the internet LED does not light up)
What settings do I need to use to make this work or is it indeed impossible? It's in bridge mode only at the moment with other settings untouched from factory defaults.One person says it's possible but I can only get it to work with 1 device because it's assigning the public IP on the cable modem onto the one device - but I couldn't get this to work either.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N - How To Configure To Get Internet Connection

May 30, 2011

Is it possible to use a WAG160N as a straight forward router (wired & wireless) and to "switch off" the ADSL connection?  I have a cable modem and planned to connect the modem to WAG160N by an ethernet cable and then assumed that it would connect to the rest of my network and use the modem as the route to the internet.  But I cannot work out how to configure it to get this internet connection.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N-E1 Configured PPPoE Connection

Sep 16, 2011

I have just upgraded my old WAG54GS to WAG160N-E1 (Annex B). I've configured the PPPoE connection and everything was up and running... for about an hour. Then the router started dropping internet connection on pretty much regular basis (every 40-50min?) - it then takes 1-2 min until it reconnects again... Obviously that makes any online gaming a nightmare.
I'm now running again on the WAG54GS and everything is ok (except it doesn't support >6Mbps speed which is the reason I upgraded the router in the first place) so it's not an issue with the ADSL line.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Blinking With No Ethernet Cable Attached To Router

Feb 24, 2012

I have a  WAG160N  wireless gateway . Yesterday when i tried to power it on after a couple of seconds the power led was solid green and the Ethernet leds were blinking with no Ethernet cable attached to the router . The ethernet leds would keep blinking for minutes . I tried to use a screwdriver to do a hardware reset  ( with power on ) and i noticed that the power led would start blinking green/red for minutes . I tried to use another wired router which i have for backup and it could connect to the internet normally without a problem.

What the green / red blinking power led means ( power led is green and then changes to red and then it starts over ) ?

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Disconnected From Wireless Network

Apr 11, 2011

I bought a WAG160N ADSL2+, I configured it and all the computers can connect to it with wireless. But the problem is sometimes the connection between the wireless adapter and the router will disconnect and I'm not able to connect again (the computer screen in de bottom right corner has a red cross in front of it if you know what I mean). It can take hours before it will be able to connect again. The only way to have the connection back up is to turn off/on the WAG160N. This happens mostly on my machine (windows XP Dlink Dwa-131 adapter and with the adapter that came with the WAG160N) and afterwards on the other machines. Its like the router doesn't want me to connect anymore.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N No Longer Use And Would Like To Extend Wireless Range

Feb 22, 2011

I have a WRP400 connected to the internet, and have a WAG160N that I no longer use and would like to to extend my wireless range.I connected them via an Ethernet cable and it seems to work fine without configuring the WAG160N (seemed to just work automatically), but I can't access the WAG160N admin GUI (tried all sorts of IPs in the WRP400 range) to change any settings (frustrating). My guess is that it's probably not the best way to set it up.
1. Set the IP of the WAG160N (The WRP400 is set to, so should I change the WAG160N to Or should I be setting it within the WRP400's DHCP range which starts at

2. Swtich off the DHCP on the WAG160N. (I think I tried this late last night and it wouldn't assign an IP to my laptop, unless I did somehting wrong)

3. Connect the two using a ethernet cable.
After I do this I should still be able to access the WAG160N's admin GUI with the IP assigned in step 1?

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160n Router Doesn't Respond To Wireless At All Anymore

Sep 23, 2010

I recently bought a Linksys WAG160N v2 model to replace my old setup of a Linksys WRT54GL + ASUS AM604g (ADSL2+ Modem) i had.I've set it up to dial my ISP's PPPoE connection as i had on the previous setup exactly, And it seemed to work at first.But now i've randomly noticed the connection just dies - the router doesn't respond to wireless at all anymore, and connecting from a wired machine shows the PPPoE link died, while the log says something along the lines of "PPPoE connection terminated: transport endpoint not connected" followed by a big number with lots of zeros and :'s. Probably some kind of IPv6 error address? note that i am not using IPv6 myself nor does my ISP provide any such addresses.
I've already upgraded the firmware to latest and installed the newest WiFi drivers on the machine i was connecting from wirelessly (has an Intel Wifi Link AGN5300 module).
