WRT160N Router: Weak signal and knocks me off line all the time.

Don't buy this model it sucks! Why doesn't someone start a class action suite against Cisco if they won't come up with a fix and recall it to fix the problems it has. Mine is less than thirty feet in my office from my laptop, no metal walls, just a conventionaly constructed home. WTF?

    Are you certain you're connecting to YOUR router?
    Does it work with a hard-wire connection to your computer?
    My guess without answers to the questions:
    1) Your router isn't configured yet
    2) You are connecting to a neighbor's router

    What type of security are you using? I know that on the Apple base stations you can use wide bands to boost signal [which might interfere with your neighbors... but that doesn't seem likely in this situation!]

That could be some unknown signal deadspot in the room try moving it around or too other rooms and see what happens.If it remains a problem then purchase another router to boost the signal and increase your range.

My 2005 dodge Magnum 2.7 liter started knocking as if it had no oil


you are most probably looking at a rebuild. There was a class action suit against Chrysler because of that motor. they made the oil passages in that motor too narrow, and it doesn't take a lot of gunk to block them up and a good section of the motor loses oil pressure. I remember that their policy was to blame the customer if he missed a single service. a lot of those engines failed under warranty.

Samsung tv sound but no picture


Based on the class action suit against Samsung, it's likely the capacitors buldging. My TV purchased in late 2007 was a "victim" and the tv did the turn on/off with no pic or sound. There is a limited number of tv models and now a March 2013 time limit. To see if your TV is one that qualifies for a free inhome replacement, look at these links:

The Samsung repair was quick, but I had to get the TV off the wall mount and ready for the repair. They don't take it down or do any of the cable/line connections. If you are unsure if your model is one that qualifies, call the special 800 number given in the class action ruling.

Horizontal blue line at bottom of my screen, on my 60 inch lcd wega, was about 2 inches from bottom of tv now it's like 3 inches from bottom, blue line is about 2" high all the way from left to right...


The "optical block" is bad. There are currently 3 settled class actions against sony for other models with the same problem, If memory serves me correct, your model is in an ongoing class action. If you google Sony LCD class action suit. you will find lots of info. www,sonystyle.com and support has a few articles as well. It is a 900.00 part, so, not really cost effective to repair. Post a comment for me tomorrow and I will paste what links I have on this issue to this post. There in my other PC at my office. Hope this helps

Pump fan blades have broken off, I"m looking for a replacement part.


Unfortunately, you're not alone on intex pump failures... in fact there's people intending to start a class action suit against the company because of the pump impellers failing and there are not parts available for replacements...and their customer service people aren't much help either.
You may be able to buy an inexpensive complete 635 pump, but it looks like an different model may be a safer bet.
Sorry to be the bearer of lousy news.

My Linksys WRT160n seems to be very weak. My


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.
