The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Netwroking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture or settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

GdayI am trying to connect my PSP via WRT160N without success, any suggestions please?? Thanks


Hi,

I see that you are having difficulties connecting your PS to your wireless Router, Inorder for your PSP to get connected to your Router wirelessly make sure that your remove your Network Key from the Router this will let cell phones and other mobile devices connect to your Router without any errors, to protect your Network having a disable security you can enable MAC Address filtering in your router this should let you get your PS and other mobile devices connect to your Router and at the same time give security to your personal Network.

Will not allow me to connect using an ipod touch.


My IPaq wireless has an icon that lets me log into other networks by just selecting them and putting in the password or no password if it's an open network.

I Googled the Ipod touch instructions and found a MAC blogger with the specific instructions here http://mac.blorge.com/2008/07/14/wi-fi-setup-how-do-i-access-the-internet-with-my-ipod-touch/

If you can't login because you don't see the router, try logging into the router from a computer connected to it and make sure the wireless is turned on and broadcasting an SSID. If you have a WEP password set, you will be able to read it under the Wireless Basic Wireless Settings tab. If you need specific help with the WRT, you may visit the Linksys site. Here's a link to connecting your wireless device to a Linksys product http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=20947

or, here's a manual where you can start at page 13 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/userguide/WRT160N_V10_UG_A-WEB,0.pdf

Linksys WRT160N Connection Issues.


Sadly, this router has horrible reviews and is known for this problem:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16833124277

Can you return it for another model?
Can you getLinksys to replace it?

the best one is the LINKSYS WRT54GL, but if you are stuck with the one you have...

If you have tried all these things and you are very brave (or don't care if you need to buy another router) why not try flashing it with an after market O/S?

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.
