Lost my installer cd for wrt160n v3

Many newer routers don't actually require an install CD to work.

Connect the ISP modem to the main network port. Now connect the computer to any other port. That's it. All done

This just refreshes your IP. In PC go to Start > Search (run in XP) and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /release ENTER. Then type ipconfig /renew ENTER.

I have Comcast high speed internet, and recently purchased a Linksys model WRT160N V3 wireless broadband router to allow me WiFi access throughout my home. I have a 2008 Apple MacBook (13") that I'm...

I had issues as well until I changed my router I also went with the linksys router and changed out to D-Link wireless router. I understand that who wants to pay the extra for their wireless router. It is not much more to get one of theirs that is already configured for comcasts dynamic IP address's. This is the fast way to fix the issue. However in any case some routers do not work with comcast they should you would think?
Unplug everything and start from scratch. Do not hook anything up at once. Start with the Comcast modem and plug in the R-45 cable into the router first. Then start the computer up again and the router. Now plug in one computer at a time. Wait for it to configure by checking the Internet on the Mac book first. You will need to make sure that the Mac-book is configured and working first. The Mac-book should be WiFi ready and you should be able to log in to it. Comcast is a dynamic IP service it will find the Mac-book give it some time to search for it. Once this is working the internet on the Mac-book then do the rest of them power them on insert the compatible WiFi connectors that will work with your router. Then one by one do them all until they are working.
Worst case scenario would be to either purchase a D-Link router that does work with comcast this is what I have. My phones also started working as well. After doing this I also researched the comcast pages to find the compatible routers that will work for you. Or get their wireless router to finish this project. I know it is not the answer you are looking for but it is what I did to resolve my issue which was a true pain in the buns. Thanks for using FixYa! John

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.

Hello, I just installed a new router, and it all

verify your internet modem it connected to the WAN port on your WRT160N, login to the WRT160N and go to the "status" tab and see what your internet status is. You should see a page similar to this:
Verify your router has an Internet IP address. If it does not, then you haven't finished configuring your router. If it does have an IP address, then turn off your firewall and see if you can get connected that way.

Cannot connect wirelessly to my Linksys WRT160n, but wired works

Get Network Magic ... download for evaluation.

This is a tremendous network management tool well worth the $. If you dont pay, you can still use most features.

Get it and use it to get your connection going at least.

My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE

in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router
