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 :: Connecting Another Router To WAG160N?

Feb 21, 2011

Two years ago I bought a WAG160N for modem (ADSL) and router functionality. I consider to buy a pure router (E3000 or E4200) to connect to the WAG160N and use that one purely as the modem. How and what should I configure/disable on my WAG160N?

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Router Resetting Itself

May 24, 2011

I purchased a new WAG160N router a few months ago and recently I have been having major problems with connectivity.The problem is that it resets itself at seemingly random times. I see it happening. The red power light starts flashing red and then the other lights slowly turn green as it re-establishes connection to the internet.
This is becoming extremley frustrating as I do online gaming with my XBOX 360.I use wired connections using ethernet cables. One to my laptop. And one to my XBOX 360.I have contacted my ISP who have done line checks and I have had an engineer look at my line and all is good. I have also replaced all cables to/from the router including phone cords and ethernet cords. EVERYTHING is new.I recall one incident in which my internet was down and I just couldnt get connection AT ALL. I rang my ISP and they got me to log into my modem settings. The settings were all altered for some reason and I have no idea why. When they told me to enter the details in the settings the internet worked immediatley.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Router Doesn't Appear To Boot

Jan 28, 2013

Last night we had some pretty bad lightning and thunder and our Linksys WAG160N appears to have had a bit of a fright.As I was going round unplugging items in case of a hit (this was after a flash or two, relatively nearby), all the lights on the router were off except for the ethernet light (plugged into a Linksys homeplug adaptor). Now the router doesn't appear to boot. When powered on, the power light doesn't flash or anything to indicate booting up, all you get is the ethernet light (if connected) after a few seconds, but no activity. I'm presuming something has been fried or corrupted? I'm not sure if we did have a power spike either through the mains or phone line as all other equipment seems to be fine, but I'm wondering the the homeplug connection might of had something to do with it after reading a few posts from others on the subject.I've held in the reset button while starting and it doesn't appear to have done anything. I will try the 30/30/30 reset tonight.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160n - Router Disconnects When Turn Off HP Pavilion DV6

Jan 11, 2012

I have an issue with my router that disconnects from the internet in variuos situation when my laptop (an hp pavillion dv6) try to connect. It happen everytime when the laptop go in standby. When i turn it on from standby, the router disconnects from the net and the only way to have access to internet again is turn off and then on the router. It happens also when i turn on the laptop if there is yet some other device connected, like my desktop or my iphone or whatever.

Sometimes i have the same problem with my brand new tablet (a sony s) in a slightly different way. I navigate then, after a random amount of time, the router disconnects in the same way and the only way to have back connection is turn off and then on the router.

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).

I have a small home LAN of four hard-wired PCs and two iPads and two notebooks which are connected by wireless.  At the heart of it all is a Linksys X3000 wireless router.  Any of the four PCs that  are hard wired to the X3000 have no problems talking to each other but none of the wireless-attached iPads or notebooks are able to see any other machine on the network.  All machines are able to access the Internet.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: How To Auto-reboot A WAG160N

Jan 25, 2011

Any hardware that can re-boot a DSL router such as the WAG 160N when the router no longer passes traffic ? Today, while the DSL line and the Internet appeared to be working, I could not  log in to the router from a LAN machine and I had to power it off and on again by hand.We have a number of surveillance cams on the LAN and this must not happen,  that the cams cannot be accessed, in particular if nobody is on site for a few days.Unfortunately, the WAG 160N does not have a daily re-boot option. What can one do except for installing a timer  that switches the power to the router off and and on again ?

Jan 7, 2012

My Linksys WAG160N has worked fine for 2 years however all of a sudden when I power it up it's start normal but after 4 seconds all ethernet lights blink one time and all start from the beginning, it's like it reboot every four seconds.It happens so quick I can't even get to the Internet/Network Settings in WIndows Control Panel.I have tried accessing router setup and installing firmware and both have failed - it can not find the network address.If I try to reset with the reset button on the rear (30sec reset), it stops rebooting and the power LED starts to blink red/green and the ethernet LED of the port where my cable is connected starts to blink alsoI have set IP address manually on my computer as per the Cisco support pages (, still no response from ping.I have also tried to reinstall firmware using TFTP but it also fails because it can not find the network address.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N - Cannot Connect To IP Address

Aug 10, 2012

I have a WAG160N wireless router that I want to use to repeat a wireless signal that is delivered by our ISP who installed broadband in our cottage, not our house (long story, we live rurally, so I won’t get into it).
So I understand I can simply plug my Linksys to power and that will pick up the signal inside our house (which it does, and we get an excellent strength signal).I further understand that I have to configure the Linksys so it talks to the modem provided by the ISP and which is about 50 metres awayFrom the Cisco website and my own docs I know the first step is to search the IP address online [url].,..

Linksys Cable / DSL :: Replacing A AG241v2 With A WAG160N

Mar 24, 2011

I need to replace a failing AG241v2 and I am going to use a WAG160N.I problem is I notice there are two versions of WAG160N, v1 has a RJ45 port for the DSL and v2 a RJ11 port.AG241v2 has a RJ45 so the cable I was using was a Ethernet cable.Now this cable doesn't fit, of course it is bigger, I tried with a RJ11 cable but DSL light doesn't show up, it looks like it is not receiving any signal.Is there any adaptor or any cable to use WAG160Nv2 or should I replace it with a WAG160v1?
I found in several web stores when they talk about WAG160Nv1 they use the code WAG160N-E1 and for the WAG160N-v2 they use the code WAG160N-EW. Can they make it more difficult??

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 Gateways Always Gets Disconnected

Aug 8, 2011

I have LinkSys WAG160N V2 with the last firmware 2.00.20 I have very annoying issue, the Gateway always disconnected from time to time .. Some days it work so fine and some days it disconnect 20 times per day and I have every time to go Status >> Gateway and press connect , another weird thing is that sometimes it gaves me speed 3784 Kbps and sometimes 3500 Kbps , sometimes it gaves me the right speed 4700 Kbps i did think maybe it's my ISP problem , but after the upgrade the problem gone for 3 weeks then it back again, and when it back I did make factory reset and reconfigure it again regarding my ISP settings and it did work fine with 3784 Kbps speed and it should be 4700 Kbps.
