A few months ago, I purchase, installed and configured a WRT 160N V3. And I couldn't be happier. I now would like to go back and change the passphrase that a user needs to enter when they connecting to my router. Currently it uses the default value. And I would like to make it a bit more friendly. I found a number of postings dealing with setting retrieving or changing the Admin password.
But I was not able to find anything on changing the “passphrase”. There probably are a number of postings on the subject, and I simply overlooked them.
I have a WRT160N that I've been using with my HDTV for months. Now I want to connect a BluRay player to it, but the setup requires me to enter a security code, and the one I had for the router doesn't work. Can I change the number, or at least double-check the number I do have?
Been using the WRT160N for a while now and it works great except for one issue. Every few weeks the wireless can't be accessed by the other computers unless I change the SSID name. It was frustrating to figure out, but simply changing the name makes it accessible again.
I connected the Router to the modem, and all the wired connected PCs were working perfectly.But then, i went to the setup page to configure the Wireless settings, and as soon I changed the SSID name, the connection internet connection droppedThe only way i had to fix this was by making a Hard Reset.after that, I also tryed changing values and settings from all the configuration tabs, and the wired connection was working properly, but as soon i changed any value from the Wireless tab, the internet connection dropped (even, in the diagnostics section, i could not do a ping to google. It says unknown host).
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 have noticed that after the new Firmware Update, the EA4500 will not change to a new public address. I have check my logs and my IP Address is the same going back to a 03/25/2012. I changed my router back to my old E4200V1 and it changes to a new addresses when the old one expires.
When I change my WRT320N routers IP address to use it as an access point only and bring it in the IP range of my ccombined modem/router I'm not able to view the setup page via the new IP address. I have tried to change the IP from the default 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.178.2. After changing and applying the changes I restarted the router and tried to access the router via the new address. This was not possible am I doing something wrong or did I forgot something?
I am thinking about purchesing this router. But I need know if this router has DHCP reservation function. If router can assign to specific MACs their own IP adress. I had WRT160N for a week, but my ISP change technology. WRT160N had this function, but I am reading here, that WAG160N not.
I wanted to reset my IP address, so I called my cable internet service provider and they walked me through the process. I unplugged the ethernet cable from my router and connected my computer directly to my modem. Then, I unplugged the coax cable from my modem, plugged in back in again, and within Windows did ipconfig/renew in the command prompt. This successfully changed my IP address.
Then, I ran my wires back into the router again (instead of plugging the computer directly into the modem). To my surprise, the old IP address was back again! So, I went into linksys 192.168.1.1 screen to release the IP address and started the process over again.
I got a new IP address once again, but now the Linksys router can't seem to figure out the new IP address so nothing works going through the router.
confirm if the highest speed I can get over WiFi with WRT160N v3 is actually 270 Mbps (and not 300 Mbps as advertised), And there's one more thing - is it normal to have Signal: -51; Noise: -93, SNR: 43, Signal quality 53% if I am only 2 meters far from a router? TX power is set to 28.
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.
turning my wireless back on. Some how in attempting to create a shared file between my pc and my wife's Mac the wireless has been disabled. I have tried resetting the device several times following the instructions on line however I still can not get the wireless to re activate. I tried reverse directions from the posts on how to turn off the wireless but still no luck. I tried restoring the computer to a later date?
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 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.
Just tried to register my WRT160N V2 and when I tried firstly there is no option for the version 2 model and secondly it says my serial No is incorrect when I have tried it three times and have checked it thoroughly.
I have two PC's hardwired to this router that are working okay (although performance has been choppy lately). The past 4 days however, when I try to connect wirelessly I get connections that are repeatedly dropped. I am in the Settings section of my iPad 2 and it keeps rapidly switching between "connected" and "not connected". Firmware is up to date.
Desktop Xp 3 and connected printer, Comcast cable, WRT160N, wireless laptop w/ Xp 3. Printer is only parallel, and is connected to desktop. How to setup all and print wirelessly from laptop through WRT160N to printer on desktop?
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 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?
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.
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'.
