If the power is not turning on, it could only be the power adapter problem. Try to replace the power adapter. I highly suggest to claim your warranty and ask for replacement if it is brand new. Worst thing is the router is dead. You should have lights lit on the router before you can set it up

Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then connect the computer to the router. If you are connecting a wireless computer then disable the wireless connection on the computer. open the set up page of the router. change the wireless network name to something different that you never used before. change the standard channel to 11. save the settings. Try to connect to the wireless network. Check if you see the new network name ? If you see the new then try t connect and see if that works.
This router WRT160N has issues with the firmware.

Will not allow me to connect using an ipod touch.


My IPaq wireless has an icon that lets me log into other networks by just selecting them and putting in the password or no password if it's an open network.

I Googled the Ipod touch instructions and found a MAC blogger with the specific instructions here http://mac.blorge.com/2008/07/14/wi-fi-setup-how-do-i-access-the-internet-with-my-ipod-touch/

If you can't login because you don't see the router, try logging into the router from a computer connected to it and make sure the wireless is turned on and broadcasting an SSID. If you have a WEP password set, you will be able to read it under the Wireless Basic Wireless Settings tab. If you need specific help with the WRT, you may visit the Linksys site. Here's a link to connecting your wireless device to a Linksys product http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=20947

If you have tried all these things and you are very brave (or don't care if you need to buy another router) why not try flashing it with an after market O/S?

Try rebooting the router first...unplug then plug it back in.

Then check your settings to make sure it's configured properly. For example, it hasn't changed itself to b or g mode, etc.

You may be getting interference from someone else's router. Try changing the channel...1, 6, and 11 are the best as they are separated from each other. Most routers are by default on channel 6, you may find less interference on channels 1 or 11. The freeware program Network Stumbler can tell you what channel other networks in your area are using.

Linksys router wrt160n unable to be detectd


If that is the case you must do a hard reset first. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Make sure your computer is connected to port 1 and your modem is connected to internet port of the router. Try to set it up again.
