Cannot install model # wrt160n v3 to laptop have no disc to setup with


Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Changed ISP provider and is not able to connect to internet through linksys wireless router, model # wrt160n


Have you gone to your new ISP providers website, and surfed the internet?
I know, most routers have to be registered to gain access to the internet.
You might have to manually input the MAC address (found on the bottom of the router) to your ISP, then sometimes it takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour for the router to register, depending on your ISP.

After the router is registered, you can plug or wireless connect to the internet.

How do i connect this router to my cable modem i dont have any drivers for it


If you are looking for any firmware drivers for the Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router you can find them on this page link: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/LATAM/en/support/WRT160N
However, I am not sure you need drivers for the router if you want to hook it up to your cable modem. If you have the installation CD you can easily follow the instructions for installing a new router and you should get through with the installation in a matter of minutes.
I hope you get everything up and running soon. Thanks for choosing FixYa.com!!

Connect one of the Four port of the router to the laptop or desktop. 3.Insert the disk that came with the router into the laptop drive and install it. 4. Turn on the wireless services on the laptop by hitting the wireless button the laptop. 5. Now, connect to the available wireless networks.

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!!

WRT160N router, no internet


Ok, I have the same router, and have had all sorts of troubles with it.  I found the best solutions to be found on the website (i think its linksys.com or something like that).  If you are using a security enabled network, make sure you are entering your WEP key in the correct format.  Other than that, I'm really sorry that I cant help much further.
