Linksys WRT160N Single Computer Won't Connect To Internet
May 28, 2012
I have recently changed the name of my network, as well as the password for the network.All of my devices (Android tablet, iPod touch, Macbook Pro, Laptop running XP, Xbox) are connecting fine except one desktop running Windows Vista.This computer is giving my a local connection, but says it is not connected to the internet.When I try to access the router's control panel from this computer, it says that it cannot connect.The router is a Linksys WRT160N with the encryption type set to WPA2 Personal.The computer is connected to the local area network, but says the router is not connected to the internet.It is able to ping the router, and is sending and receiving packets.Here are all the network settings for this computer, currently (connected to the computer via Ethernet from wireless router): [code]
I did read the thread entitled ''WRT160N Can't save settings'', but I believe this might be different. My router is actually communicating with my computer (physically plugged in), since I can save all other settings EXCEPT the port-fowarding ones.I am trying to save settings for a gaming application in the Single Port Forwarding section of my router settings. After clicking both ''save settings'' and ''continue'', it simply returns to the Single Port Forwarding section, except everything is blank, as though nothing was saved.
Here are my specs:
WRT160Nv1 Firmware Version: v3.0.03
Here are the steps I have already undertaken:
1- Erase browser cache and cookies
2- Updated to latest firmware (v3.0.03), 10-second reset button, 20-second power cycle.
no devices on my network can connect to the internet through my router if it through WiFi or through Ethernet.if i connect directly to the modem i can connect.I can connect to the router configuration page but nothing else.i am running windows 7 and the router is a linksys wrt160n v3. internet,WiFi, and power light are all on the router.I have power cyceld the modem and reset the router with nothing changing

It should be known that this is not MY specific issue, it's a friend's issue... but I am posting it for him as I know nothing about networking. Don't worry though, anything you post here I will relay for him to do.Is this a wired or wireless connection issue?
How to run and post an ipconfig /all output of the computer(s) in question for review.Here it is:

So here's the deal, my friend has horrible down speed, usually less than 1MB/s according to Speedtest.net, sometimes it hits 2MB/s. However, his brother's in the house have at least 17MB/s, which I can assume is their actual speed that my friend should have... however, he specifically does not.He had a very old wireless card that was installed on his motherboard (desktop PC) that I assumed was the issue upon him first telling me, and from the issues I was personally able to see. For example, he'd constantly disconnect... his internet would just die for him specifically, and then come back. His brother's never lost internet when he did.
After that, I figured his very old wireless card that was installed was just kicking the bucket, so I instructed him to replace it. He went out and bought a new wireless USB adapter, and then uninstalled the network card.Even after all of this, his internet is still poor in terms of down speed. HOWEVER, rather than his internet dying for a few minutes at a time every so often, his internet "stays connected" if that makes sense? For example, we'll be on Skype in a conference call, and his internet will be loading pages very slowly, and Skype will constantly show that it's going from "green - online" to "gray circle - connecting". During this, he's still in Skype, but it's very poor quality from him speaking, and laggy as well.
I purchased 3 AE2500s to connect 3 machines in my house.2 of the machines it works great. However on the 3rd machine, when I start browsing around (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz), things start going wonky and then the device basically loses connection, and the LED indicator starts flashing consistently indefinitely (with no connection).Removing and reconnecting the USB device will allow me to reconnect to my network and do stuff until it happens again. Speedtests on speedtest.net ALWAYS fail on upload test, I lose connection then.Streaming a movie across the network immediately causes this (exclamation mark on network icon) Regular browsing causes it also Checking event logs, I get the following error wlan extensibility module has stopped bcmihvsrv.dll The router is an E4200 I have tested all 3 AE2500s on this single machine, and they all do the same thing.Out of the 3 machines ONLY the one that doesn't work is Windows 7 32bit, the other 2 that do work are Windows 7 64bit Considering the event log is complaining about bcmihvsrv.dll, I know the 64bit version uses bcmihvsrv64.dll, could it be a bug in the 32bit drivers?I have attempted at trying different slots, uninstalling the drivers, removing and disabling any other network components in this single machine, lowering the power output in the advanced options, tried 2.4ghz and 5ghz, tried Wireless G only and then Wireless N only...
Whenever I try to set up a security code for any of the settings (WEP/WPA etc), as soon as I hit save my computer does not recognize it and I get kicked off the internet and have to restart my router. I have the Linksys model number WRT160N V3
I have a Cisco E1200, I am wanting it to connect to the net using Etisalat ISP. The computer will talk to the router and all the settings look correct but it will not connect to the internet.The router did a software upgrade that it deemed successful.
I am unable to connect to the internet with my XP computer. I am running Apple Air Port as my router. The wireless network has an iMac, an IBM Think Pad(XP SP2)and a Dell XPS 410 (XP SP2). I am using WPA security and the Dell will not connect while the other two computers always connect. My wireless network is broadcasting, but when I try to connect after entering the proper key, it attempts to connect but appears to time out and displays the available wireless network. I tried reinstalling the drivers, but no success. Device Manager says the card is working and enabled.
Today, suddenly my internet went down so I checked up on it and I found out that something might be wrong with my router. I can connect just fine if I connect my computer with the modem directly but when I plug the modem to the router, I can connect to the router but it doesn't give me any internet.
My WRT54G2 v1 does not automatically connect to the internet on computer start-up. The computer will say "Connected, No Internet Access" In order to fix it I have to unplug the router and then plug it back in. This happens to any computer that tries to get online from a cold start-up. The router must always be unplugged, then plugged back in, then it will have internet access (and will generally maintain it throughout the session and even if the computer is restarted, i.e. warm boot). I have downloaded the latest firmware uprade.
I cannot get into my Linksys WRT160N router web page. I'm hardwire connected to the router. My computer is using DHCP IP addressing. The router has assigned it the standard 126.96.36.199. I can ping the router at 192.168.1.1. Wireless and Wired connections through the router to the internet are OK, no trouble accessing internet sites. Linksys advisor displays the router address as 192.168.1.1, so it has not been changed from the factory default. The advisor shows my networked devices clear back to the internet and claims there are no problems. After entering 192.168.1.1 into IE, IE appears to connect and is waiting for the router to respond. After a few minutes, it times out with failure to connect message. I've tried Safe mode with internet access, I've temporarily disabled my Windows and McAfee Firewalls, and the McAfee virus scanner. All to no avail.
I'm having an issue getting my tv to start connecting again to the wireless router.Have tried pin setup (timed out & didn't connect...attempted at least 10 times in this fashion)Have tried entering the password (router seems to refuse the connection to the tv)About a month ago, I was in the Network Magic Map & it looked like one of the laptops had been cloned, so I removed it from the network.
I have 2 routers and hate wires! The main router connected to the internet is the Linksys WRT 160N which runs the bulk of the wireless devices in my house. I just got bought a new computer which is in a different room and do not want to run a 100' wire to reach the area... I have a extra router kicking around the Dlink WBR-1310 and I want to connect the two routers in two different rooms, wireless.
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.
I just bought a Linksys WRT160N router. I pop the installation disk in my mac book pro and walk thru the installation procedure successfully.But I can't connect wirelessly from my MacBook Pro (running mac os x 10.5).It sees the router and I did type in the password correctly (i copy from the text file generated by the installation procedure), but I keep getting 'coonnection timeout'.
I have" a WRT160N but I guess we had a power outage while I was on vacation and now I can't connect to my old network I set up.I see the Linksys internet connection and I can connect but its not the password protected one I set up. When I go to "manage connection" I can see the old "house" connection but can't connect
I have an Adroid 2.3.1 tablet, a WRT160N router, and an ActionTec M1000 DSL modem. I have many devices, both wired and wireless, connected and all work fine. These include xBox (Port Triggering in place) and 2 laptops via wireless and 3 machines wired.For some reason the Android tablet will not connect. It does connect to other WIFI spots including neighbors, cafes, etc. For this reason I believe the issue is with the router.I have tried all sorts of things including:
Change advanced wireless settings (Beacon Interval, Fragmentation Threshold, RTS Threshold)Tried B, G, B&G, B/G/NTried WEP, WPA, WPA2Tried Channel 1, 6, 11.Reset the router (via reset button, via Factory Defaults option, Reboot, power off 10 secs, back on)Updated router firmware to latestUpdated tablet firmware to latestTried enabling MAC Address filteringAt one time I saw messages in the DHCP log wherein it was trying to register and I noticed the MAC Address doesn't match what the tablet says it has. Now I can't even get that. It says "Connecting", a few seconds then "Disconnected".I am now forced to consider getting a new router. If I can't get this resolved, the new one will not be manufactured by Cisco.
I've been using a WRT160N for a couple of years now with no problems with any of my devices. I have a couple of certain devices (a DS and a PSP mainly) that utilize 802.11b and have been working perfectly up until now.
All of a sudden it seems like the router has decided all by itself to no longer allow 802.11b devices to connect to it, despite it being configured in mixed mode. (b/g/N) I've tried tinkering around with it, switching between Mixed and BG-Mixed, changing the channel to something more common and restarting the router, but I can't connect at all on these devices.Model: Cisco Linksys WRT160N v3.Firmware version: 3.0.03.
Every time I try to connect to the admin page of my router, I get "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." This happens with FIrefox 11, and started when I upgraded to 8 or 9. A machine running FF 3.6 does not exhibit this problem; I get right in. What IE 9 says is "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" (after complaining about the expired certificate).
I ran Wireshark to see if I could learn anything, but all I could figure out was this: https handshake was OK. First TLS packet is received by router, which then immediately issues a reset and ends the connection. I don't know why.
have I got a screwed up configuration (or router)?
I've just purchased a new router (WRT160N) and wireless adapter (WMP600N). The problem is that I cannot connect to the router when I have it set to WPA or WPA2. At the same time my laptop with Atheros 9285n connects to router and works perfectly. When the wireless security disabled the wmp600n connects to the router without a problem and shows 300mbps connection speed and laptop 150mbps. When the router is set to WEP both laptop and pc with wmp600n connect but work very slow - 54mbps only.
Windows 7 laptop does not connect to Wiress router WRT160N. It used to connect automatically for years when laptop is booted.Now Windows troubleshooting gives message to reboot wireless router. It connects automatically when the wireless is rebooted. This issue occues when the router is ON for long time ~ 12 hours or more.
I've been searching and searching the internet and I have never found a CERTAIN answer for if the linksys wrt160n v3 router will work for the ps3 or not. I want to know for sure if it will work because I know that is it sbackwords compatible with g/b/a networks but I am a newby at this stuff.
Purchased today 26th March 2012, used CD first as warned, followed procedures, will not connect to WAG 160N modem router. WAG160N has MAC restrictions but MAC of WRT160N added, both in wireless and as a computer. Still won´t connect, gets to 85% in wireless connect mode then fails, gets to stage 4 of router recognition and fails, saying check cables. Cables changed to know working ones, still no success. Tried pinging 192.168.1.1 direct from computer with no success, no access to router log-in page at all. WAG 160N has no problems.
My Linksys WRT160N wireless router stopped working all of the sudden. When I connect to the internet wirelessly my laptops say I have full signal but "No Internet Access." None of the 4 wired ports on the back of the WRT160N router give me wired internet. The only way I can get internet is to connect the wire to my internet modem
While trying to add my kindle fire (unsuccessfully) I lost all internet connections, now my laptop won't connect. I reset the router and and can see my wi-fi account but when I try to use on my PC and laptop it won't recognize it.
