WRT160N router, no internet

I can go on the net through the wired connection but not the wireless. My laptop connects to the router no problem either way but just won't go on the net via the wireless.

Ok, I have the same router, and have had all sorts of troubles with it.  I found the best solutions to be found on the website (i think its linksys.com or something like that).  If you are using a security enabled network, make sure you are entering your WEP key in the correct format.  Other than that, I'm really sorry that I cant help much further.

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.

first a couple of things.
if your router has wireless support your laptop (if new) should have a wireless adapter built in, so basically your destop computer can be wirely plugged into the router and your laptop shoud "connect wirelessly" to your adapter
so this is how your set up should look like

desktop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ----- wire----- desktop

laptop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ))wireless))) laptop

you need read up a bit, here are some links that will have info you need

manual for wireless configuration (select the proper revision for your router and check user manual)

configure wireless network for vista


read up and if you have any questions post back.

hope that helps.

Lose internet connection (hughes net) when hooking up router


I would contact your hughes net, that is a satelite provider. That is a total different system, than dsl or cable. Hughes net should be able to walk you through the setup.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.
