Try to turn OFF your router. Do this bu pulling off the power cord at the back of the router.

Now dont start the laptop yet. After 30 secs you turn ON your router by inserting the power cord at the back of the router. When the lights are stable, turn ON your laptop. It should get connected to the router giving it an IP address.

If you still have the same problem, then your laptop's wifi settings might not be compatible with that of the router.

So, try to reconfigure your laptop's wifi settings:
1. Click Start => Settings => Control Panel
2. Locate and open Network Connections
3. Locate your "Lan Connection" used with the router
4. Right click on the Lan Connection and click Properties
5. Under wireless "Authentication" chose WAP encryption method.
Click Apply then OK.

If this doesn't help, try the same steps and change WAP to WAP2 or simply chose the encryption method in the combo list (ONE AT A TIME) that fits your routers default settings.

If the wireless router is connected to the PC


You are using WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware.
Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

Check the IP address on the Vista wireless network connection. Make sure that there is not static IP address on the wireless connection. That could be one of the reason.

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


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.
Good luck!

Linksys router 160N will not work.


You probably have encryption turned on in the router, as you should... But your wireless NIC in your laptop may have the wrong settings for encryption set... Compare the two and change your NIC to match that of your router... You may have to know the passphase or password depending on your level of encryption... If by entering a valid IP by hand and it still did not work, may mean that your DNS server IP address(es) werent set correctly, you should use the router's IP address as your default gateway and primary DNS server IP address, since most likely your router is connected directly to your ISP modem... Hope this helps!!
