Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
Hi joe just picked up a linksys wrt160n and i seem to have a good wireless
connection to my ps3 but the wired connection to my pc keeps coming up
as internet explorer not found or unavailable on occasion. It will be up as it is right now for a bit but will then go down. Not to familiar with routers so not sure what to do to fix the problem. Thanks for any help you can give me.
I solved this by returning it and getting the Netgear which was cheaper. So far not a problem!

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Note these down and set these values on your PC by doing the following:-
Start --> Control Panel --> Network Connections --> right click on Local Area Connection --> click Properties
In the small middle box scroll down to Internet Protocol TCP/IP
and click to highlight
Click properties button and enter the values
Click Close or OK
2 other things can also stop your wireless connection from dropping:-
Change the Channel transmitted in Wireless Settings
Defrag your hard disk
