Connect your computer to the router via a cat5 / network cable. Open your web browser.
In the address field type hit enter

You will get a login screen to the configuration menu
For linksys the default login is
login admin
password admin

You can also go to the linksys support website for specific information...

Then you change the password and login to whatever you'd like. I would assume you are also going to enable security... you would then go to the wireless security tab to setup the encryption type, etc...

The save settings. Disconnect the cable. Plug those settings into your computer's wireless settings and reconnect wirelessly.

Here's a walkthrough.

If still unable to retrieve that, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

I want to know how i can make my Linksys Router WRT160N work as access point


By default Linksys router behaves as Access point. On some router you have to enable the wireless function.

So the following to configure the router Wireless Access Point

Click the below link

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > Wireless security

On this screen select

Security Mode : WPA Personal
WPA Algorithm : TKIP
WPA shard Key : "enter a password here"
Group Key Renewal : set to default

Click on save settings. After that restart router .
Now your wireless network is secured and you will have to type the WPA shared key inorder to connect to router when it prompts. You can connect as many devices as you wish since it is a access point

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

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

or, here's a manual where you can start at page 13,0.pdf

Computer crashed had to wipe out and need to reinstall cannot find original installation disk are there any free download drivers available

You really shouldn't need an installation disk to install this router. here is a link to everything available from linksys. Review the user manual for any questions about the product. Also there are no drivers needed. Everything is either wired or wireless. To access the settings you just enter the appropriate IP into your browser. All of this can be found in the manual.
thank you,
