Check the ip address on the wireless network connection icon,make sure that the ip address,make sure it is dhcp enable and is within the same range with the router may also change the channel on your router because the problem is may be with wireless interference,you may be using other wireless devices that are running within the same frequency as your router.(cordless phone,baby monitor talk,microwave ovens,even thick walls and large aquariums)

Cannot connect to the internet

Reboot your modem, then reboot your new router.

The rebooting is an essential process of installing a new piece of hardware to a modem.

When your modem boots up it leases an IP Address to the MAC Address of the first connected piece of hardware (router in your case). If you switch hardware without rebooting, your modem will not recognize the new piece of hardware because it has a different MAC Address. Every piece of hardware has its own MAC Address, unless it has been cloned.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router

No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

Changed my modem and now my wrt160n dosen't work

I recommend calling your ISP and have them synch your new cable modem with their connection. They may need to register the hardware address of your new modem for them to be able to recognize it and grant internet access.

Hope this helps.

Cannot get internet connection on pc with wireless adapter

The LAN will really tell you that its disconnected since your computer downstairs is not connected with a cable to the router, the only problem here is the wireless PCI adapter is not installed properly, try to run again the setup CD for the adapter and make sure you restart the computer when the installation is complete...

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610

If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.

Internet connection

Ok I have done it a little different sometimes... try this approach... First connect up the DSL Modem to the PC via Ethernet.. Configure the modem from the PC using the Connect to the Internet Wizard... enter all ya ISP details Logon, Password etc. Once this is going OK.. Disconnect the Modem... and then connect it up to the "Router" using the "Uplink" port and when connect ya Modem to the router... then connect another Ethernet cable from Router to same port on ya PC. Then simply use the network setup Wizard to set up an Internet Connection and connect up via ya router thru ya modem... generally works for me....
