Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

The IP address of the computer is another indication that the computer is properly connected to the router.
Checking the Wireless Settings on a Linksys Router
The router’s wireless settings should match the wireless settings of the wireless adapter in order for them to communicate.
Disabling Computer Firewall
Make sure that the computer firewall and any third party firewall installed in the computer is disabled. With a firewall enabled on your computer, you may get an invalid IP address. In such cases we have to disable any firewall installed on your PC.
Disabling Proxy Settings
If you have proxy settings, you need to disable these on your computer. If a computer is accompanied by a router, the gateway for the Internet connection, it no longer needs to get any proxy settings to gain access.
NOTE: If you are using Mac to disable the computer's proxy settings.
Pinging the Router
Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer and the router. The computer sends packets to the router and in return the router sends out replies to validate the connection.

How about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
