Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
There are three things that could be wrong that result in losing connection
1. Firmware fault
2. ISP fault
3. network card fault
the most probable is firmware fault
you should upgrade to latest firmware
links, if you have version 1 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/firmware/WRT160N_1.02.2_US_code.bin
if you have version 2 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/firmware/WRT160Nv2_v2.0.03.007_US_code.bin
if you have version 3 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WRT160Nv3_3_0_02_003.bin
Just go to http://192.168.1.1/
if it asks for user name and password
user name = admin
password = admin
click on the Administration tab. The firmware upgrade function is somewhere on a subtab. You'll see a browse button with which you select the firmware file you downloaded before. Once you press the Upgrade button (please only do it if you really want to upgrade the firmware!) the browser sends the selected firmware file to the router where it will be installed after the router reboots itself.
if its an ISP prob there is nothing you can do to fix it except call the ISP and ask them to fix it
If its network card problem i highly advise to buy a new one

It is most probably one of two problems. Either the ISP, or it is signal related. If it is not signal related, call your ISP. Really hope this can help.
