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.
