Upgrading the router's firmware

  • Locate and download the firmware file from the Belkin support site.
  • Save the file to a location on your computer where you can get to it easily, such as your desktop.
  • Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  • Open a web browser on the computer.
  • In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 and press Enter on your keyboard. Note: Some routers use 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.
  • Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
  • Click on "Firmware Update" toward the bottom of the left-hand menu.
  • Click the Browse button toward the middle of the screen to search for the file you saved previously.
  • Select the firmware file by left-clicking on it and then click the Open button in the lower right corner of the window. This will take you back into the router's interface.
  • Click the Update button.
  • A prompt asking, "Are you sure you want to continue with upgrading?" will appear. Click OK.
  • A second prompt will open telling you the router will not respond during the upgrade and warning you not to remove the power supply to the router.
  • Click OK once more.
  • Congratulations. The firmware has been updated successfully.

WRT160N Wireless Router : i just bought a new laptop and a lynsis wrt160n......


The wired and wireless speed will always be different.
The maximum wired speed will be 100 Mbps. That means the wired connection is working properly.
Wireless connection speed will depend on the router and the wireless adapter on your computer.
If you are using B-Adapter then max speed will be 11 MBPS. IF it is G-Adapter then max speed will be 54 Mbps.
The N-adapter will give you more speed.
Check in the Device manager which adapter you are using on your wireless computer.
One more thing you can try changing the wireless channel on the router.
You will need to access the router settings page.
Update the drivers of your wireless adapter on the computer.
You have WRT160N router.
This router has issues with the Firmware.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.
enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router.
Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router.
After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you reset and reconfigure the router.
