Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
I have Linksys wireless "N" router connected to a AT&T DSL/broadband modem/router. When I attempt to access internet on my desktop (wired connection), I am unable to access the internet. Same for wireless connection to my laptop. I believe everything is connected properly, and I followed the instructions on the set-up disk. Thanks
When connecting the devices make sure that you turn on the device in
this manner: modem (wait for the lights to be solid) then router, then
Check if you can get online, if not then follow the steps below:
1. Open a web browser and type this in the address bar: 192.168.1.1
2. Then you will be in the setup page of the router. You need to know what is your connection type obtained from your ISP.
If DHCP, internet connection type should be: Automatic Configuration - DHCP should be selected.
If PPPoE, select PPPoE and type the username and password provided by your ISP.
3. Then save the changes.
Once that the internet connection is working from the PC hardwired connected to the router, then check the wireless settings under the wireless tab. Take note of the SSID, wide channel, and the wireless security and preshared key.
Put those settings on the wireless adapter of the laptop and you should be able to get online.
I hope this works! Good luck!
