Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Slowing Speed While Connecting To Internet

Nov 29, 2011

A few weeks ago my internet speed suddenly became slow. Not so slow you can’t do anything without having to wait half an hour, but significantly slower than usual, and it also has occasional drop-outs. It can’t be an issue with the computers connecting to the router, which it’s doing fine as I can access my router’s setting though the IP address, but with the router connecting to the internet.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: Slow Wireless Speed On WAG160N?

Feb 27, 2011

I'm having issues with the wireless speed of my WAG160N. I'm using WPA2/AES, firmware: V2.00.20. The wireless connection signal is very good and the speed shows 130 Mbit/s.
On a wired connection when testing with I get 6 Mbit/s which is my DSL speed (this is great). On the wireless connection I get max 1,8 Mbit.

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 - 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 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 ) ?

Connecting A Linksys WAG160N And Belkin F5D9630-4 Together

Dec 30, 2011

I'm looking to connect a wired PC to the internet.

1. Linksys WAG160N Main router
2. Belkin F5D9630-4 v6

My first question.. is it possible to connect wirelessly from the Linksys to the Belkin, then run an ethernet cable from the Belkin to the PC? If this is possible, then can I use the Belkin to also extend my wireless range?The alternative is to build a Powerline network but I wouldn't get the wireless extension without forking out for more kit.

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 ?

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.

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.

But I have found out that if my modem is not DOCSIS 2.0 compliant, I cannot get the faster speeds. How do I know if it is DOCSIS 1.1 or DOCSIS 2.0 compliant? I hope I don't have to replace the modem as it has given me absolutely no trouble since I have had it.
