Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N - How To Access Web-Based Utility
Dec 10, 2008
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'm trying to access the browser based utility (@ http://192.168.1.1) on my router and having no luck. I've tried from two different computers (each Win 7) and each browser. I've tried wired directly to the blue/LAN ports and through Wifi. I've confimred that the IP is correct (or is at least the default gateway for each machine). The Cisco Connect tool can't find the router either.the only thing that can find the router is the CiscoConnect Express app on my iPhone.Internet is working fineish (some problems with Wifi), I just want to play with some settings.
I am running my home network and WAP(WPA2) behind a d-link gaming router (DHCP) with no inbound or outbound restrictions; however, I am unable to access the internet using my ipad unless I put the WAP in the DMZ. Also, if I configure security using the setup program, I can not log on to the web based utility. I have to disable security with the set up program and then log into the utility. BTW..the UID must be left blank to log into the utility( PW only) to configure the WAP, even though the manual says otherwise.
Now after all this, the WAP will be up and running for days even a few weeks. Then for no reason it will no longer be accessible and I will power it down and back up and it works fine. But this will work only a few times and I have to hit the reset button and reconfigure it all over again.
The firmware has been updated and nothing else has issues on the network. This has been happening since i bought it 3yrs ago, using an iPad, iPhone, Laptops, and PCs( XP and Windows 7) but in the past year it has been more frequent.
When I try to access the browser based utility through the address bar, I don't have the username or password.....tried admin for both and for just the pw. When I try to access advanced settings through Cisco Connects router settings / advanced settings, it comes up as if many objects were unable to load. Linksys E2500.
I'm just finished with the wizard of my WRT54GL and follow the instructions in my user's manual I enter in the Web-based Utility of the router but I was surprised when I see that the language is French?! Once I choose the language for the wizard - english, it was english but now the Web-based Utility is in French. For luck I know some French from the high school but I prefer to work with English. How to change the language of the Web-based Utility from French to English
How do you format the drive for this with the routers web based utility? Or do you just do this while its plugged into your PC then connect it to the router. I know how to format the drive with the web based utility using the FAT system but its limited to 4gb files.

Just got my new TP-Link device and intend to use it in client mode for my new audio receiver to connect to my home network.Trying to configure the device, and I cannot even access the online utility. I tried using the following address:
None of these seem to work. Tried on Chrome, then Internet Explorer and made sure that the web browser was not set to proxy (it was not set to this in the first place). The address just doesn't seem to connect, and I get a "This page cannot be displayed" note, as if I'm reaching a bad address.
I have tried multiple times to hard reset my Wireless G WRT54G ver.2 router, but have had no success. I held the reset for 15 sec, 30 sec, 2 min, etc and also tried holding it and then unplugging it and then plugging it back in. I've tried everything that I have seen suggested. My problem is that I don't know what the password is to access my router's web utility thing and I need to change the IP address. With every reset attempt, I hope that the default admin password will work, but sadly no.
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!)
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 a Linksys E1000 wireless router, and I seem to have either written down the password incorrectly or am using the wrong one. Regardless, I can not access the web-based setup for the router. Is there anyway to reset the username and password for it?
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.
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 a WRT120N with Firmware 1.0.06..First peculiarity is that I can't access the web based admin screen from Firefox 7.0.1. The password prompt appears but won't proceed from there.Second, and main issue is that frequently (several times a day) I get a 'Limited Access' error on my wireless connection. On mouse roll over Windows 7 Pro gives the error message 'no internet access'. This problem appears to resolve itself after several minutes or straight away if the router is powercycled. During these 'Limited Access' moments I am unable to connect to the route web based admin page nor ping or tracert. [code]
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?
home router is a wrt160n v3 With my iPad I set up the built in IPSec VPN to my office's cisco gateway. I successfully get the VPN logo. With an RDP app, i can access my work network from multiple public locations from my iPad. At home, on my laptop, I start the cisco client then use the windows rdp, presto i'm in my work network. At home on my iPad I can activate the VPN, but I can not connect with rdp. I spoke with linksys support tonight they had me add port 3389 to port range triggering and disable the firewall on the home router. This didn't solve the problem. To recap: 1) I can connect to my work network with rdp from multiple public locations, but not at home with the iPad 2) I can connect to my work network at home with my laptop with the cisco client ant the windows rdp
Not sure how I got here, but I cannot now connect to the E3000 using the Browser Utility. USing https://10.x.x.x, shows certificate warning page, then when I continue "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".DId NOT change the host hame.Last time I used the Browser Utility (weeks ago) was to disable the wireless to check something. Reenabled the wireless, no apparent problems until today when I tried to access via the Browser Utility.As I never ran Connect, there are no settings to change, and now it cannot detect the device.I guess I'll wait until I HAVE to change something, and do a 30-30-30 reset.
