Linksys Wireless Router :: Setting Up Access Point With WRT160n?
Sep 19, 2011
I just bought a Linksys E4200 wireless router. I have an old Linksys WRT160N wireless router. I would like to setup the WRT160N downstairs to wire the DirecTv box and PS3 to it. Then wirelessly connect to the E4200 upstairs where our modem is connected. Can the WRT160N be used as an access point to do this or do I need other equipment?
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.
I have a Router WRT160N and need to connect an Access Point using a wireless bridge (i.e. cannot use cable between router and AP). Which Linksys Access Point model is recommended to use with this router?(No I dont want to use another WRT160N with DD-WRT!)
I have a WRT 160n I want to use as an access point. The cable company has provided the main router so I want to use the 160 as the access point. I have a switch attached to the router and have the 160 attached to the switch. I can ping and access the 160, however there signal strength has not changed and is still extremely low. I know that the strength on the router is very good when I plug it in to the cable modem.
I got this router and I need to set it as an Access Point (will not be using the routing functionality) in the far side of our building. Our LAN uses IP address in the range 10 with subnet 255.0.0.0, so I need to put the access point ino this subnet. The drop down box only allows me to set some predefined subnet masks, none of which matches ours. So how am I supposed to set this router in our LAN?
I have a desktop running XP. I am using comcast as my ISP. I have my printer attached to my Linksys wrt160N router via Ethernet. My desktop is also attached via ethernet. I also have a laptop attached to the router via wireless. How do I access the printer via the router from either the desktop or laptop? I had it configured properly in the past then lost my motherboard. Once the PC was rebuilt, I lost access.
I have an AT&T broadband router. A WRT160N is connected to it, so I now have Wireless-N capability. I have a second WRT160N that I would like to put in my living room as an access point, so I can connect my BluRay player to it and stream video. How do I set up the second WRT160N as an access point?
I have a small business and IT guy is on vacation for a few weeks. We have a LAN network as well as a wireless router in the office. We have one LAN port in our warehouse, but instead of running 200 ft of cable to the area where I need a connection, I wanted to use that port to hook up a WRT150 N Home Router as an access point to set-up wireless downstairs. I have reset the router, but when I hook it up to a PC downstairs, I cannot even get a LAN internet connection. I have shut everything down and rebooted, but nothing. Our main router (WRV54G) is connected to the address 192.168.1.1. I'm not sure how to install the wireless on the WRT150N if I can't get an internet connection at all, and then how do I change it to an access point. I need to get this up soon otherwise I would wait for my IT guy to come back.
i have a verizon usb720 modem. i want to set up my wirless printer. Previously i had this set up by a profesional. I bought a new computer and am now trying to set this up. I have a linksys router as well wrt54g how is tis done. you cannot connect anything to the modem but i have read that you can turn the router into an access point.
My internet provider is telus and they gave me a modem/router combo model VA-G3810bn/tl and another router a linksys wrt310n and i want to by pass the router built into the modem so my linksys will put out a signal instead as it is faster connection any im using windows seven and mozilla firefox if that matters
I have never setup an wireless access point before and am having some issues. I have a Linksys WAP54G ver 3.1. A friend gave it to me and he said it was working when he pulled it out of his office.I defaulted the device and using the wizard have the following setup:
Setup: Network: Device Name - Linksys WAP54G Configuration Type - Static IP IP Address: 10.0.0.239 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
When I try to connect to it via my laptop I get the error: "Windows was unable to connect to XXXXX"
I want to extend the range for a Linksys router WRT160N. I don't have the possibility to use an access point with a wired connection. I read on this forum that can be used WAP4410N configured as repeater, without wired connection. Can someone who has used this solution to confirm that it works? What configuration should be done on the router WRT160N to permit wireless signal to be repeated by WAP4410N?
I am connected to internet via a cable modem, via the LAN cable, I connect cable modem to WAG120N that I want to use as an wireless access point only. And I have got 2 PC, 1 runs on XP, the other on runs on Windows 7. My XP would have no trouble to connect to wireless, but the Win7 can only connect to wireless network, but no internet. When I try the troubleshooting from Win 7, it says, DNS server isnt responding The setting I am using at the moment is Bridged mode only, without entering any values of DNS, IP, etc Is there any setting that work for both OS?
My Linksys Wireless-N router/access point (WRT160NV2) is connected to the internet in my primary residence, delivering 35mbps. I purchased a commercial Engenius product (EAP9550) to amplify the wifi signal over to a secondary house (about 180 ft away, traveling through 3 walls). Configured as an access point, the EAP9550 received and showed signal, but there was zero connectivity. The tech support at Engenius has advised me to configure the EAP9550 as an access point. My linksys router continues to deliver wireless signal for its range, but is only showing (not giving) full connectivity to the secondary access point.
I need to control the rate at which my WUSB600N adapter connects to my access point. By default, it rate adapts through negotiation with the access point based on a set of possible rates. Can I restrict the set of rates my adapter can use (without re-writing the driver ). I've looked at netsh which provides stats about the rate my adapter is actually using but doesn't appear to allow me to set the desired rate. I'm using Windows Vista by the way.
setting up wifi network in my office. my complete set up right now. the main problem is how to setup my access points . Okay so here it is.
I have 3 - 4 PCS in my office out of which My machine is the main machine and everything is setup on this. so for networking what i have done is i am using a TP link router model TL-WR941D. i had got it configured from an engineer. A cable from my internet modem goes into the blue port of this router(WAN) and my PCs are connected via the LAN port of the router . so everything is working fine right now the local network and internet on all PCS and my laptop also connects through the wifi and is able to access other pcs and also the internet.
To have better signal strength on other floors of the building my engineer had installed 2 access points. They are TP link model Tl-WA901ND. yesterday i updated the firmware of my main router and the settings were some how lost but i managed to set it back to working state using the quick setup utility. so my router and wifi is working fine. But now my access points have stopped sworking . i mean i am not able to get better signal strengths thorugh them. i am assuming theirs ettings /ip etc are lost. now i have no idea how to setup these access points to be used again as part of my wifi network. I looked on the internet but nowhere the thing has been explained in detail. how can i configure my access points/repeaters agaain? i am stuck and engineer is not available for nest few days and my officee internet is suffering.
I have a slightly confusing set up on my home network and can't figure out how to set up a wireless access point. Here is my setup:I have an Apple airport extreme N set up in the main house. We also have a converted garage in the back yard that is barely within the range of the main router. I have an ethernet cable running from the router in the main house to the back house. I then have that plugged into a switch, which then feeds ethernet to several components. The wireless signal in the back house is very weak, which can be frustrating, so I wanted to set up a separate wireless network in the back. I have an Apple airport express that I am currently using to stream music to a home theater in the back house and would love to use that as a wireless access point. It is hooked up to the switch. I also have a Netgear N router that I could possible use as an access point as well. The problem that I am having is with IP address assignment. I would guess that this is because the main router assigns IP addresses and then the switch also assigns IP addresses
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.
I have Linksys router model no. WRT160N, which I have been using for three years. I need to add two iPads to my router but I do not know the network password. I am trying to access the router IP address 192.168.0.1 to find out the network password, but when I put HTTP://192.168.0.1 in my browser, I receive the message: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. How can I find out the network password?
I am having trouble logging in on my wireless router and when i put "admin" (WITHOUT QUOTATIONS) on the password, the same prompt kept on coming for three times and after that the message says "401 Authorization Required" (WITHOUT QUOTATIONS). I don't get though, i installed the wireless router just after i change admin and my password into (******).
I have a wrt160n v1 that stopped working after a power outage. The power light stays solid and I cannot reset the device with the reset button, power cycle, and I cannot access the user interface at 192.168.1.1. Is it bricked? It doesn't show up on my wireless network and when I try to access it via ethernet cable it shows up as an unidentified network with no network access
I have updated the WRT160n firmware and, since then, I couldn't access the setup page anymore. I could still use the router as a switch, but couldn't access the setup page and configure it as a router.
Everything was going great until tonight. I can connect to the internet fine wired. Wireless devices can connect to the router, but cannot access the internet. No changes were made to the unit. Updatae firmware to 1.02.11 but that did not fix the issue.
I have WL-5460AP v2 access point so my question is how do i need to set my access point(which mode) so i can receive connection from an open wireless conection (router) and share it wirelessly with the Access point simply said i want to extend the connection here are the modes that the AP has url...do i need UNIVERSAL REPEATER mode or else?
I was unable to access the web admin on my WRT160n v3 w/ latest firmware this morning. Reset config to defaults & was able to get in. Enabled HTTPS access & disabled HTTP access & was right back where I started; reset to defaults again & left both boxes checked. Can access via HTTP, but HTTPS requests get refused/reset.
The reason I needed access was that when I booted up my laptop this morning, my wireless card wasn't picking up an IP address via WIFI, only worked via ethernet, so I need to see what was going on there — several reboots of the router didn't fix, nor has it fixed the HTTPS access problem described above.
I am cascading a wrt160n (R1) and a wrt160nl (R2) which are hooked up LAN port to LAN port (via a DLink power line adapter). R1 is hooked up via dhcp to the internet. The whole system works wonderfully for several hours until all of a sudden wireless access to R2 ceases to work (though I still can access everything wired). [code]
I have set up a home network some time ago, using a 4-port wired router. All four ports are in use, one of which by my own desktop computer running Windows XP Home, SP3.I recently received a new laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit). Because I can't afford a wireless router at the moment, I've been trying to set up my Windows XP computer as a wireless access point (using a Wireless LAN PCI card), so I can connect my laptop to it and share my internet connection.However, when I try to set up an ad hoc network on my XP computer, it doesn't show up in the list of available networks on my laptop, though it does show up on the XP computer, with the message that it's waiting for other computers to join.The same thing happens the other way around. When I try setting up an ad hoc network on my laptop, it doesn't show up on my desktop computer.
