Linksys wrt 160n v2

I bought this mid October and all was fine but in the last month the wireless started out to be iffy but now it is zero and the wired connection on 5 computers only works half the time and it is slow to zero and getting worse. I hooked my old Netgear back up wired only and the pages load almost immediately. I have called linksys support 5 times and they change this and that, load a new bios and basicly waste my time. Anyone have a clue about what is wrong or is this thing just a piece of ****?

* NOTE: If you tried to set-up the WRT-160N Router previously, but failed, with the Router ON, press the "Reset" button on the back panel and hold it down for 10 seconds, then release. This will reset the Router to factory settings and erase all previous data.
Then do this
1. Hook up the Linksys WRT-160N Router to the modem(cable, DSL or satelitte)
2. Hook up the Linksys WRT-160N Router to your computer via a LAN cable with the LAN cable in Port #1 on the Linksys WRT-160N Router.
3. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your web browser.
4. Log-on to the Linksys WRT-160N Router with these log-on credentials:
Username: linksys (lower-case)
Password: admin (lower-case)
5. Click on the "Clone PC MAC Address" tab.
6. Click the "Clone PC MAC Address" button.
7. Click "Save", click "Continue".
8. Click the "Wireless Security" tab.
9. Choose "WPA2 Personal - TKIP/AES" for encrypted security.
10. Enter encryption password (passphrase).
11. Click "Save", click "Continue".
12. Exit the web browser.
13. Disconnect the LAN cable from the computer and Port #1 on the Linksys WRT-160N Router.
In about 5 seconds, your wireless connection should be up and running.

Ps 3 linksys 160n problem


Hi Friend,

In order to use PS3 we need to open few ports. Kindly follow the steps:

1.Open the internet explorer and type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.
2. If you have not changed the default password of the router then kindly leave blank the username box and in the password box type admin and hot enter.
3.In the setup page click Application and Gaming
4. Under that click Port Range Forwarding.

Below are the port numbers which we need to open for PS3

TCP:
80
443
5223
UDP:

3478
3479
3658

Now please type these port number in start and end port. Please make sure start and end port has to be the same.

First enter the TCP ports in first three boxes and then UDP ports in next three boxes.

Save the settings and turn off the router for 10 seconds and restart again.

Enjoy.

Regards
Chiranjeet

Have a Linksys WRT 160N


On the back of your router, there should be a very small button called "reset". Press and hold the button in for approximately 5 seconds and release. You may need to use a pen in order to get to the button (It is deeper than others).
