  1. Follow these steps to configure Linksys WRT160N wireless router.

    1.Open Internet Explorer, it does not matter if you see error message such as "The page can not be displayed" . now erase everything on the address bar and type in this IP address: 192.168.1.1 or the full address: http://192.168.1.1This is the default IP address for the router set by Linksys.
  2. 2 Hit the Enter key on your keyboard to connect to the router's web admin control panel. You will be prompted a login window for the username and password: the default admin username is "admin" and the default admin password is "password". If you can't connect to this admin control panel, you will need to change the IP address on your modem, maybe your modem is using the same IP 192.168.1.1 also, just unplug the router from your modem, and hook up your computer directly to the modem and fire up the web browser and enter the IP 192.168.1.1 and follow the on screen direction to get in.
  3. 3 It will then ask you to change password, then you make up a password that is meaningful for you to remember. You will need to write down the username and password for future reference because I am sure you will forget. You will need to reset the router if you forget the router password, and that will erase everything saved inside the router setting.
  4. 4 After successfully login, you will be in the Basic Setup of your Linksys WRT160 wireless router. You also might need to clone the Mac Address if you are using Cable Broadband (Comcast), to do this go to Mac address clone -> Enable, then clone my computers Mac.
  5. 5 If you are using Verizon, you might need to change the Internet Connection Type to PPPoE and enter your username and password that is created by Verizon.
  6. 6 I think many of you concern more on the Wireless secrutiy. Click the Wireless tab and enable the wireless security, you will need to choose a type of security encryption, WEP is weaker, you will need to type 10 characters for the pass code. The WPA or WPA2 is much stronger that it takes passphrase. For more security on wireless connection, you can also try to use MAC authentication, each of your laptop or wireless card has unique MAC address, you find out the MAC address on your laptop then enter it into your router so only this laptop can have access to the wireless connection.

I am trying to install the WRT160 N router, but can't install it due to having a Static IP. What should I do? The set up CD is giving the message that the the ethernet cord isn't plugged in. All I am doing...


Do not run the set up disc do it manually.
.You said that you have a static IP.
Is the static IP for the internet service provider or it is on the computer.
If you have set up the static IP on the computer then you will need to remove the static IP address from the computer and set it to obtain IP automatically.
If you have a static IP given by the ISP then you can use it to set up on the router.
Check the Ip address of the computer when connected to the router.
I believe the default gateway will be 192.168.1.1.
open the set up page of the router. default password of the router will be admin. Once you open the set up page of the rotuer, you will find the option Internet connection type. set it to STATIC IP address.
then you will get the option to enter the static IP address given by ISP.
Enter the information and Click save settings at the bottom and you will
be able to go online.

My linksys wrt54GC stops working when connect internet cable


There might be a reason that the default gateway of your router and the internet are same.So first connect your router to any one of the computer and open the router page by typing 192.168.1.1 (username should be left blank and password-admin).Then on the basic setup page change the Local IP address to 10.10.10.1,scroll down and click save settings.Now power off your router and connect internet cable to internet port of the router.Switch on the power of router and now try to go online. If you are unable to go online then connect your computer directly to the modem and download the new firmware from www.linksys.com/support and connect your computer then to the router,upgrade the firmware of the router and try to go online by connecting internet cable.

Wireless router install on cable modem w/static ip address set


Connect a computer to linksys lan port 1-4, point browser to linksys http://192.168.1.1 under Setup->Basic Setup->Internet Settings choose "Static IP" and fill in the fields below... the field for gateway should be set to the static ip of your cable modem. the field for netmask should probably be 255.255.255.0. It may help to turn on DHCP for local network so that lan hosts can get their ip's from the linksys.
