Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

1 Answer

My new linksys router doesn't allow me to print

My printer and computer are hardwired into this new router. I had been using a D-Llink router and decided to upgrade the router (new router: WRT160N) to give better wireless service to another computer elsewhere. The new router does show my printer, but does not allow me to print. Can you help?

Can a dynex DX-ESW5 act as a print server?


No. You need a router to set / obtain an IP or connect it directly to the computer RS232 serial port. No network required, but is old school and may be difficult. Specially with MAC. You are better off getting a new router.

HP Photosmart C4780 and Acer Aspire fight over web-based printing!


Try hard-wiring your laptop to the router with an ethernet cable as a test and then try printing, if you do not loose connection to the internet then the problem is probably that the printing is hogging your wireless bandwidth.
If the same thing happens with loosing connection to the internet try connecting to the internet real quick through another computer that is hardwired, you want to find out if the problem is a wireless one or that affects wired computers also. You might need a driver upgrade, you also might need to upgrade the firmware of the router

Disable your firewall on that computer where you shared your printer.

After that check firewall settings to allow printing from the network.

Your router working ok.

I recently upgraded to high-speed DSL, and am planning on upgrading my computers. I currently own an older linksys 2.4 GHZ 54 Mbps router and just purchased the WRT400N thinking I would be able to get at...


My friend, current technology does not allow for these speeds via wireless. Wire is rated at 100 (cat 5) or 1000 (cat 6) while wireless is 10. Your Linksys will communicate with your modem device at the higher rate, but the wireless will be slower.

To get the 1000 speed, all devices attached to your 1000 rated network will have to be rated 1000; computers, printers, routers, etc. You must also use category 6 or higher cable to get that speed. If you have any device on a 1000 rated network that is rated at a slower speed, everything will slow down to that slower speed.

I am not a wireless fan for two reasons: (1) Speed (2) security. Normally, distance is not a problem - Current technology allows for a 300 foot radius circle around your router (perfect circumstances)

Now then, the salesman may tell you something else and there may be another question catcher come in and tell you something else. My comments are based on my own personal experience while operating my own networks.

My old linksys router has stared to allow only one computer to connect to the internet. This is true whether the computers are hardwired to the router or wireless; only the first computer is connected. ...


try the following

1. check the linksys website for a possible update of the firmware..(get the specs on your router before updating the firmware.. if done wrong you may end up with a useless router)
2. also try to reset your linksys router to factory defaults..
