For the past week my router will lose internet signal which shuts down not only my internet acces but my phone as well. I tried unplugging from unit itself, it does not work, tried resetting router that does not work. When I unplug it from the wall outlet itself and plug it back in, it will then come back on. It does this 3,4,5 times a day. Also, happens when I am on phone as well. It goes out and have to hang up and unplug from wall outlet and wait and plug back in so it will come on. Is it the router or something else?

do you know admin user name of router and admin password. What make and model number is router.
On your computer if windows go to dos prompt and type in ipconfig. Note the default gate way ip address and put this into internet browser to log into the router.
it could be 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.1 if you can get past the login stage go into Wi FI settings and change the channel it is most likely on auto put it on at least 2 channel numbers higher like 9 if auto starts at 7.
A make and model number may help us find the default user name, password and what the ip address of router may be ?
Are you trying to run the CD to setup your router? You can setup your router manually also. Connect the computer to the router and modem to the router. Change the Internet connection settings on the router according to your Internet service provider. Read Linksys router setup
You have WR160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router. Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router. Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router. On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.
I didn't fix the problem with the router(I disconnected the thing) but I did find out that I needed a new filter that connects to my phone jack. No problem so far with my internet connection and it has been 12 hours now. lol I am wondering now if I hook my router back up if that filter WAS the total problem. Now I am scared to hook the thing up again!! This was a lotttttttt of trouble and very frustrating.
I know you've heard this many times by now, but disconnecting the power from the router for about 30 seconds then reconnecting power should work. Obviously not. If your Xbox and laptop are doing the same, then it's not a computer problem; we can narrow it down to the router, the modem, or the internet connection itself (whether it be DSL or Cable). You may end up having to throw money at the problem and purchasing a new router. I'd recommend an 802.11n router from Linksys. If you're not willing to shell out money, even if you are, you should really try the Trendnet web site or giving them a call. You may just need to update the firmware. Try starting with Trendnet since the problem can be narrowed down to your router. Please let me know what happens.
Hi, You can also type 192.168.0.1 into the internet URL address bar and it'll ask you for a username and password. If you haven't set one up, try 'admin' and 'password'. Then look for a menu listing like 'Diagnostics' or something. (The layout varies on different Router brands) Now click 'Reboot Router' and wait until it has completely finished and all the lights have stopped flashing and are remaining on. Now try your Home phone. If it still doesn't work, try replacing the microfilter thingy that separates the computer cable and the phone cable (Usually a spare is bundled with the router when you buy or receive one, look in the box that the router came in, if you still have it). Otherwise contact your internet service provider and get them to check the line, as sometimes the signal 'drops' for certain reasons.. Good Luck!
