Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
I have a linksys wrt160n v2 and i cant manage to connect to the internet. when i connect the modem directly the internet connection works fine, but when i connect the router, my pc cant get any internet connection.
i allready tried both DHCP and manually configured ip with the same dns and gateway ip's (192.168.2.1) my router ip is also (192.168.2.1).
i can get to the router settings (change password,etc), but still no internet.
can anyone help.thanks
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

I recently had the same problem and contacted Linksys for help. They advised that they were aware of a problem and that I needed to download a different firmware version to correct. There are instructions on their site to complete a firmware upgrade if you are having problems connecting to the internet.

Universal Plug and Play allows Windows to automatically configure the Router for various Internet applications.
If you want to use UPnP, keep the default setting Enabled. Otherwise, select Disabled.
