I have a linksys Wireless N Broadband Router model # WRT160N. I have tried countless times to enable port fowarding so I can remotely access my home network. I can log into the router fine from home.

    I have the same problem, I have everything set right. on the router and the PC. Can access remote desktop on the lan, but not outside. www.grc.com shows everything stealthy. www.canyouseeme.org shows port 3389 open. A static ip is assigned to the host machine and configured on the linksys with a IP reservation. netstat /a show port 3389 listening. Port range forwarding both protocals to port 3389 is enabled on the linksys. The ISP is not blocking the port. I have a simple workgroup config behind a Winstel DSL modem and a WRT160N, I know this stuff and can usually figure it out but this one I cannot. I even reset the router and rebuilt the network. UNCLE!!

Port forwarding is not the only thing that you have to enable to access your home network. Firstly do you just want to access your router from the outside? If that is the case enable remote login via the administration tab.
If you want to login to your computer from the outside then you must first enable remote desktop and enable port forwarding on your router.

You enable port forwarding for port 3389 which is the remote desktop port. So start port is 3389 and end port is 3389 after that set a static IP on your computer that you want to access.
You can enable remote desktop by following the directions below at the link '

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/mobility/getstarted/enableremote.mspx

After doing this. What you do is go to the status tab of your router. Look at the IP there.

On the remote computer lauch remote desktop and enter that IP then click connect. IT will then ask you for the username and password of the computer behind the router that you want to login to. After that you should be able to get in.

If you need any clarifications regarding this you may message me and id be glad to help.

Cannot get wirelss connection through my WRT160N wireless router. Was working and now not. I can get internet connection through the LAN ports so I know that the router is working with a fixed cable


by default ip address of linksys is 192.168.1.1
to star config you need to be connected with ethernet cord rj-45
or conenct via wireless by conencting to linksys on wireless

admin user: blank
admin pws: admin

*choose a protocol on your linksys router on internect conenction type:

check isp protocol :
dhcp: needs serail number of mac address
it picks up automatic
pppoe: needs username and pws from isp

*the ip address has to be diferent from the isp modem:
isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.1.1 incorrect
isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.2.1 correct
change the ip on lan settings on your router

*wireless: ssid by default is linksys
ssid: linksys
wep : none
to setup wireless
access the wireless basic
change the ssid to any network name
enable the wireless password
choose wireless security
enable wep key 10 digit hex pws

Compatibility with high speed ADSL2 Broadband


Yes, Linksys WRT160N is 100% compatible with ADSL2. Linksys WRT160N is a Broadband router.

you will not be able to use the linksys WRT160N, as an ADSL2 modem router. you should be using an ADSL2 Modem separately and connect the cable from the modem to the Linksys WRT160N. Hope this clarify the doubt.

Cant obtain ip adress


Have you set up your lynksys to allow wireless QoS? If not go to your lynksys broadband wireless software. If you don't know how enter 192.168.1.1 into your explorer bar, log in with lynksys, default is top line blank password 'admin', go to Applications and Gaming tab and enable Wireless QoS, you'll also see all of the places to establish and open ports for specific applications.

Change NAT to open


You need to open all the ports for the xbox live. The NAT of that router model cannot be configured to open. Its just a simple NAT for internet connection.
