Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
It took me a week to get the WRT160N to work when I first got it but, now I can not get the wireless to stay set up. Every time I turn the computer off and turn on again, the wireless does not work. From what I have read there is an issue using the Westell with my Linksys because they both have wireless. How can I solve my issue to make my Linksys my main connection directly from the computer to the internet via the Westell? This is very frustrating. When the Linksys wireless is working, it's signal is at least 3 times stronger/faster than the Westell.
You have to call your internet provider and ask them to help you put the Westell modem in "Bridged ethernet" mode. This will by-pass the Westell modem and use your linksys as the wireless.
