Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

Problem using XBOX 360 Live and Linksys WRT160N

We just upgraded from the 150N to 160N because it has MIMO technology and supposedly a broader bandwidth. The reason we got it is because the XBOX would lose connection to the old router. Now with the new router, we can't even get the XBox Live to work! What do we need to do to fix this problem?

    Thanks for your help! When my stepson comes this week we will try that. In the meantime, I hooked up the old router because all of a sudden out of the blue, my laptop in the living room couldn't get online. I worked and worked on it all Friday night and finally gave up and hooked up the WRT150N and it has worked perfectly ever since! It had no problems linking with the 160N when I installed it, but then something happened. I am wondering if I can perhaps use the WRT160N upstairs and hook the XBox directly to it?

You need to reconfigure the wireless settings of your xbox. First, verify if you xbox can connect online by using ethernet cable. If it works that way, the only thing that you need to reconfigure is the wireless settings of the xbox. Make sure you have the same SSID and encryption key with the new router.

* NOTE: If you tried to set-up the WRT-160N Router previously, but failed, with the Router ON, press the "Reset" button on the back panel and hold it down for 10 seconds, then release. This will reset the Router to factory settings and erase all previous data.

3. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your web browser.
4. Log-on to the Linksys WRT-160N Router with these log-on credentials:
Username: linksys (lower-case)
Password: admin (lower-case)
5. Click on the "Clone PC MAC Address" tab.
6. Click the "Clone PC MAC Address" button.
7. Click "Save", click "Continue".
8. Click the "Wireless Security" tab.
9. Choose "WPA2 Personal - TKIP/AES" for encrypted security.

Restricted nat for xbox / linksys 160n router need to open


You are trying to open the NAT on the router for X-box.
For this you will need to reduce the MTU settings on the router to 1365.
You will also need to trigger some ports on the router.
For this you will need to open the router set up page.
Router set up page is the page where you can change the settings of the router

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.
