Is the router for your use only or for a lot of people, if it's your own dedicaced router, simply reset it by the button on the back or the router should solve your problem.
If not working, by the router config; usually accessed through your browser, typing in the adress 192.168.1.1, find the security menu, and the MAC filtering option, deactivate it, and retry.
If always not working, we stay here...

What is the user and pass for linksys WAG16ON


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Check the IP address on the Vista wireless network connection. Make sure that there is not static IP address on the wireless connection. That could be one of the reason.

I have a laptop running 802,11 g/b and vista and I Cant connect to linksys wag160n wireless router(802,11 n). laptop sometimes recognises network but when I try to connect it wont. could you help ?


Hi, You cannot connect across wireless protocols. In other words to connect to 802.11 n you need an "n" adapter.

Now, the router should be backward compatible & provide wireless g/b but you may find that when you search for networks it will be listed as a seperate network name (from the same router)

Try searching for this other network. Your router documentation should advise you of its default name & any set up process

I would advise you to purchase a Linksys G router, Model # WRT54G2. Works well with Vista and your other laptops will work also.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know.
If this solves your issue, please be kind to rate it.
Thanks, Joe

You just need to remove the preferred networks on your vista, follow this.
Right click the wireless icon>network and sharing center>manage wireless network>remove all preferred networks.click OK.
Then connect again to your network that should solve it.
