Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
So there was a blackout around my area 2 days ago. Once the electricity came back on, I was able to connect my desktop and iphone to my router with no problem but then it said "No Internet access". I'm connected right now straight from the modem itself through my desktop. All lights are flashing accordingly and I'm just thinking is it the wires that are the problem or the placement of the wires or it's really the router itself. I'm not much of a techy girl so try to ease up on the technical terminology while you're at it.
I think you should reset your router. There is a red small button in the back or the bottom side. Press it around 30sec after release it and turn off the router(take out from the power). After 1minute turn it on again and wait until the led lighting well. If you do this methot after you have to make security settings again. open your browser and type the address usually http://192.168.1.1 after that login:admin pass: just leave it blank. if you not sure about the security setting ask somebody close to you to help. i mean WPA and other wifi network protections. so nobady can steal your internet.you can try this process to but that is quite complicate if you do not know so much about routers.

Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm

Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.
When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.
I forgot to ask if you are cable or DSL.
Hope this helps

Check on your cables makes sure they are inserted properly and the cord should be free of kinks, scrapes or loose connections......Also check the back of your computer make sure your ethernet card (the one that has the green lights/LED's) is seated properly (not loose)....
Good Luck.....hope this helps...if not let us know....cheers

if this is DSL connection then you have to configure your modem before you connect router
first disabled wireless on your modem/router
.1) Turn off DHCP on your modem/router I am assuming this is verizon westell
2. Configure the first VC port to Bridge-Bridge mode
3. Keep hitting "apply" in the windows until the 7500 reboots
4. Plug the "Internet" port on the linksys to one of the normal ethernet ports on the modem /router
5. Turn on the Netgear and wait for the green Internet light to go solid
good luck if this does not work provide more info on your setup
