Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

1 Answer

Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless router works with some laptops

Our new wireless router works with ethernet fine and can be seen wireless by an older Lenova Laptop. My Dell work laptop does not see the router as one of connections when I do view. Also my daughters Lenova with Vista can not see the router either. Both newer laptops see other networks, but not my router. Again it works with one laptop but not two others.

You may have setup the wrong wireless in the router. There are 4 flavours. a, b, g, and n. Take a look and see what you setup.

Hi

If you have an internet connection using the ethernet cable but not on the wireless and there is an orange light blinking.. Try to reset the router by pressing the reset button located on the back or on the location were you can twist the stand for the router. press it for about 10secs and that will return the router on a factory settings. before u reset the router make sure to acces the configuration for the internet settings of your isp provider. if the orange light still there, try to download the latest firmware of your router on linksys site and that should fix the problem

WRT54G2 wired desktop fine, can't connect to wireless.


Hi Seth6025,

Try without using Wireless Encryption (password).

Try changing channels; default is 6; try 1 or 11.
Change your SSID: personalize it
SSID broadcast: Enable

Check the advanced wireless settings and make sure MAC filtering - DISABLED.

Reset the Linksys router by pressing RESET for 30 seconds should everything fails and re-configure. Firmware is another consideration BUT this is just a new release.

Regards,

Angel

All routers need to have a ethernet cord from the ISP Device. Most people run Laptops Wireless from there routers or if its stationary run another ethernet cord from an open port behind the router to your laptop.
