Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt160n - No Wireless Signal On 2nd Router In Cascade?

Dec 26, 2012

I have  a wrt160n as my main router cascading to an e1200 at the other end of my house. The idea was to enhance the wireless signal there. Went thru extended discussion with Cisco support settnig the system up.
Ip address of e1200 is set more than 5 apart from primary router, dhcp is disabled. The connection bewtween routers is Wan to Wan.
I have wired signal at the e1200 but no wireless signal?

Nov 24, 2011

I have Linksys WRT160N v2 wifi router that I have been using for over a year now, till two months back I was very happy with the router, speed was good without any signal issues though in last couple of weeks I have noticed that the router has started to create problems like the browsing will stop it self for a few seconds without any reason (specially I notice this when I am on youtube playing a video that will stop after 2 or 3 minutes).

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160n Signal Loss And Connection Speed Variations

Feb 8, 2013

I have been spending days !!!  trying to resolve why my laptop pc disconnects frequently from its wireless connection.  No discernable pattern to disconnects, totally random.  Happens in cycles of disconnect/auto reconnect or will go hours of stable operation.  What I have noticed is tht the connection speed seems to vary, from a hig of 54.0 Mbps to as low as 2.0 Nbps.  At same time the desktop pc (hard wired to modem) stays connected at 100 Mbps.Using RCA modem, WRT160n v3 router.

Aug 9, 2011

Comcast had us unplug our modem in order to upgrade to their new faster speed.  now our wireless router won't work.  We've reset the router twice.  we can set up the wireless network but we cannot connect to it.  The connection last for about 5 minutes and then we get an error, cannot read IP address.  Comcast says it is not their problem and linksys says they can't assist either.

Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Cascade WRT54G For Guest AP Purposes

Oct 24, 2011

Summary: Want to use a WRT54G cascaded behind existing DI-604 router to offer free wi-fi to guests. Need to keep guests on a separate subnet, and make sure their traffic is never routed to currently existing one (office PCs).

......... WAN| |
|Cable- |.............| Router A |
| modem | (ISP-assig| (DLink DI604) |LAN
`.......' ned addr)`..................| (static)
| | |
| | |
| ,---. ,---. ,---.
| |.10| |.11| |.12| Office PCs
| |___| |___| |___|


Tried above settings, with DHCP enabled for the new guest subnet. Using normal Gateway mode (i.e. re-NATting). Wireless guests can access the Internet, but also 192.168.0.x machines.Also tried, as suggested on several docs, disconnecting the WRT from the main network, resetting to factory defaults and setting up router from scratch, with the same result. It seems reasonable that, by default, things are set up in such a way that the new subnet can share resources with the existing one; however, I need the contrary and can't seem to get it right.BTW, as soon as I enter the static IP and default gateway for the WAN interface I see new default entries appearing on the static route table (Adv Routing / Show Table) for 10.x.x.x to 192.168.0.x routing. I suppose that this is necessary for the router itself, as a member of both, to be able to perform NAT and gateway through the upper tier -- since I can't seem to delete these entries manually, anyway.Considered using Router mode, but if I understand correctly, that would disable NAT, which seems (to me) inconsistent with the "separate subnet" requirement, since the main router would need to NAT guests as well as employee PCs (which would imply using one subnet for both, right?). Considered adding a firewall rule at the WRT, but the firmware does not seem to offer a suitable feature. There are "Filters", but those aim at restricting Internet access (which I want to allow), or to a certain range of ports, or even search keywords -- but not to a range of *hosts*.Tried filtering out guest-to-LAN traffic at the main router, but this proved nontrivial to get working (probably due to NAT-within-NAT which, other than that, works fine). It sounds a bit silly, anyway, I mean, why route this kind of traffic only to filter it out later on? I'd rather not route it at all in the first place. Can that be avoided? How?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N - Internet Files Blocking Access To Router?

Aug 9, 2012

 We have a home use WRT160N router linked to a PC desktop and two wireless laptops, Yesterday bought a new I-Phone, but could not link to my network (entered the security key many times). I accidentally connected to computer fix it firm that linked to my PC and wanted a large sum to fix the problem which he said was due to large number of temp?? internet files and once removed he would change the IP address of the desktop computer? Is this diagnosis logical and can I do it on my own. The router is definetely working - both laptops access the internet and I was recently able to hook up a Samsung Blu-Ray player using the same security code I used for the I-Phone.

Linksys Wireless-N Router (WRT160N) / Home Network Router Constantly Drops Connection?

Jan 13, 2012

Often my router drops connection to all my devices. Multiple times a day. It's only for a minute or so, but it's annoying. I'm using a Linksys Wireless-N router (WRT160N) with WEP encryption. I'm running two Windows 7 laptops, LG BluRay player, Apple TV, Xbox 360 (Wired) iPhone 4, and a iPad 2. It doesn't matter if I'm browsing the web, watching Netflix, or playing a game, the connection gets lost. As we speak it happened again. I have no clue on what to do. I've reconfigured it multiple times. Firmware has been updated months ago.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N - Adding Second Router To LAN

Nov 10, 2011

I have 4 devices in my network - 
1. Cable surfboard modem
2. WRT160N Wireless Router -
3. Linksys 10/100 5-port wired switch
4. WRT160Nv3 -
My current setup is -
1. Modem to first router. (WAN PORT)

2. LAN Port from router to UPLINK port on switch
The switch is upstairs, the router is downstairs.  The wifi from the router does not reach upstairs, so I have bought another WRT160Nv3.How do i add this to my setup?  I've tried hooking the new router direct to a PC and configuring it so that it is NOT a DHCP server and changed the IP from to then connecting a LAN port from the switch to a LAN port on the new router and disconnecting the wired pc from the new router.  
In the above setup NOTHING after the switch works.  I cannot get internet while the switch is connected to the second router on any computer attatched to the switch.  The wifi will not get internet either (from second router)

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V3 Cuts In And Out

May 1, 2010

I have a wrt160n v3. This is the 3rd one - both the first 2 were defective. I have spent approximately 8 hours troubleshooting the other 2 only to be told they're defective. So, I got a new one. Now, this one keeps cutting in and out. I want as my iPhone constantly switches from 3G to wifi on and over every minute. It really ticks me off! What can I do to fix this? This is a different issue than the original one (very slow) and 2nd (no signal). It's disappointing for a $90 router to do this. I also see the wireless icon on the router flash.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V3 Keeps Disconnecting

Sep 7, 2011

I have a WRT160N v3 Linksys Router and it keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting. It only disconnects wirelessly. LAN still works fine.I have tried a lot of different methods to solve this issue, but none seem to work.I am very dissappointed in the quality of the product. It has done this every since it was bought. I personally would have sent it in for repairs, but others in my household would not have agreed to that.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Not Providing Fast Wireless Speeds?

Jan 26, 2012

I recently bought a WRT160N Wireless router and am not getting fast wireless speeds. My ISP told me my speeds are 10mbps download and 1 mbps upload. I realize that this is not lighting fast but it is all that I feel like i need. My speeds on the WRT160N are about 2-3 MBPS d/l and 600kbps u/l on my wireless connection, which is hooked up to my playstation 3. My wired connection, which goes to my pc, is 9.75 mbps d/l and about .95 mbps u/l, which seems right. Why am I getting such low speeds with a router that is suppose to be build for faster wireless and longer ranges.To make a comparison, I have been using an OLD linksys b-rated router. i can't exactly remember the model, but i think it is the bef11s4, it came with a network card and is about 6-7 years old. I was getting 3-3.5 mbps d/l and 800kbps u/l with the b rated router, and it seemed like a better reception, like in the 80's-90's. ThisWRT160N is getting like in the 70's and sometimes lower.I have tried setting the router to open all ports to a dedicated ip address, it made things a little better, maybe getting 2.5 mbps d/l at the most. What am i doing wrong? I have heard something about tomato firmware but am not real familiar with it?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Wireless Transfer Speeds / Wrt160n V3

Jul 21, 2011

I have a home network with a media center.  I have the hauppauge 1212 HD pvr so that I can record video in HD to my hard drive.  I want to stream this content to the differnet PCs on my home network.  Every TV in my home I have hooked an HTPC to it.  I use them to play dvd's.  Stream netflixs etc. My problem is that I am getting a terrible transer rate wirelessly.  600 -750 kbps.  (tested by transfering large files from pc to pc)  All computers have 300Mbps wireless n cards.  all are recieving max signals.  There are either 3 or 4 pc's connected at a time depending on whether my laptop is connected or not.  Obviously this is way to slow to stream video. Made sure my network name is unique.  changed to wireless channel 1 I do think I have WEP 64bit encription could this be an issue?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Keeps Disabling Wireless Security

Dec 1, 2011

I've had a WRT160N v3 for a couple of years, and I've noticed that the wireless security setting is often set to disabled when I go into the configuration, even though I've set to enabled previously.   It goes like this....
I've setup the router to have WPA2 Personal security enabled, with a passphrase.  I have several devices that use wireless that connect to it everyday.  I recently received a new device, so I went into the Linksys configuration to get my passphrase, and the Security is set to disabled.  So, I enable it again, configure a the device, and have no problems. 
This has happened many times.  I just happen to be in the router configuration and check the wireless security tab, and it is set to disabled. 
My first thought was that maybe there had been a power loss (although, I can't remember the last power outage we had in my area).  However, every other setting was retained, so I can't see why this would be the only one that changes (and it's a rather important setting).  Additionally, I was configuring a blue-ray player last night, trying to see if it was better with a wired setting from another Access Point, and the setting was disabled, so I enabled it again.  I made changes to the BR player, then changed it back to a wireless connection.  I checked the security setting on the Linksys, and AGAIN it was disabled.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using WRT160N V2 As Access Point?

Mar 22, 2013

I have a FIOS setup with their Router/modem providing DHCP and Wireless routing.  The problem I have is that I have a mix of older equipment and newer equipment.  The newer equipment is capable of supporting WPA2, the older is not.  I would like the benefits of WPA2, but still would like to at times be able to use the older equipment.My solution was to use a WRT160N v2 router that I had as an access point and it also gives me switch capabilities for wired systems as the FIOS router in on a different floor than the Linksys router.  Wired access works just fine and the wireless worked fine until just recently.Since both routers have the same default IP addresses I changed the Linksys to a different static IP and turned off DHCP.  I left all of the other defaults the same.  I set up the Linksys for WEP and created the key for security.  Everything worked fine for the better part of a year, but recently I am having problems where some of the computers cannot find the network or find it then lose connection.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Difference Between WRT120N And WRT160N

Jul 29, 2011

I am considering to purchase a Linksys Wireless router, but I just don't know which one to select.There are so many different types that seem to have very similar (if not equal) specs.If I just limit myself to the WRT120N, the WRT160N and the E1000, they all have 4 ethernet ports (10/100), and they all support 802.11 b/g/n for the wireless part.Obviously they all promise a blazing performance, and wireless coverage throughout the whole house, without (many) blind spots.But if their specs are the same, why are they different types?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V2 Connects For A Few Seconds Only

Sep 9, 2011

I have a WRT 160N v2 router. There's 1 computer wired to it, that works fine.  Then I have 2 laptops and a pc wireless to it.  One laptop is a mac and that seems to be fine, another is a Compaq notebook that has trouble connecting and the pc has the same problem.  The signal strength is very good to excellent so thats not the issue.  What happens with the pc is, it will connect but at times its only for a few seconds then it disconnects.  Sometimes restarting the computer fixes it for a while but it will eventually start having the problem again.  It detects the wireless network just fine, and the router's firmware is up to date.  I have a feeling that its the settings in the router but im not sure what to change.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Can't Connect With Laptops

May 31, 2008

I have two computers on hard line and two laptops. All computers on the line work fine and flawlessly. But when I try to connect the laptops to the computer, they say there's a problem with the certificate. Both detect the connection, and with strong enough signal strength. I've tried WPA and WEP encryption methods, and disabling encryption methods. All had no change. I believe the problem lies with this Wi-Fi Protected Setup stuff, which I have no clue as to what the hell it's supposed to do. I've tried disabling it by turning it to manual, which all computers then lose internet connection entirely. Browsing the FAQ's, I havn't found a solution. I've been working on this thing for a solid 7 and a half hours straight, and phone support is trying to make me configure static IPs, which proved extremely inconvenient in the past.
