You really don't need to install the Linksys cd. Let windows control the wireless with "wireless zero configuration" I install these almost every day.
First reset the router. Hook it on a computer with a Cat5 cable. Then go to 192.168.1.1 in the browser adress fiels. Log onto the router. the default password is admin with no username.
Once in the setup page, go to wireless . There set the SSID (the name you want your network to be)
Then on the security tab, set your encryption key.
Then restart your wireless computers. Click on the wireless icon. click on view all wireless networks. You should see your network there. click connect and put your key in twice. You should be able to connect wirelessly ok.
If "wireless Zero Configuration " is off, go to:
Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services. Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and make sure it is set to automatic and that it is started.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

1. RESET both the modem and router by unplugging them from the wall outlet for 30 seconds.
2. Power them ON again, and after 2 minutes check the connection.
3. If not OK, connect a computer directly to the modem, reset the modem and check the connection after 2 minutes.
4. If not OK, check your cables and if these are OK, call your ISP for your status and line quality.
5. IF OK, check the Powersupply of the router.

Why can't I connect to the internet via my router but when I connect directly to the modem, I have internet access


If you don't reset the modem after connecting the router, the modem is still trying to send data to the MAC address of your PCs network card.
You need to disconnect power from everything, then power up the router first.
Once the LEDs on the router settle down, power up the modem.
Once the modem's LEDs have settled down, power up the computer.
You should now be able to access the internet through the router.

The only time this won't resolve the issue is if the PPPoE negotiation is being done by the PC and not programmed into the modem itself.
This is almost unheard of with modern DSL and ADSL modems today, but if that is the issue, you will need to contact your ISP for the information you will need to program the router to do the PPPoE login through the modem and reconfigure the computer to not do the PPPoE authentication any more.

Turn your computer on.

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
You should get output somewhat like: Default Gateway .... 192.168.123.456
if you have a connection between your router and your computer.
If you have that connection, you should be able to upload new firmware from your computer to the router.

peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

Linksys WRT160N V3 Firewall issues


You need to check first if it is the program that is causing this or not. If you have a computer without the program, have it connected to the router. If it connects it may be the program. Check if switching cable may help. IT may be a faulty cable. It may also be something in your PC that is causing this one.
