Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then connect the computer to the router. If you are connecting a wireless computer then disable the wireless connection on the computer. open the set up page of the router. change the wireless network name to something different that you never used before. change the standard channel to 11. save the settings. Try to connect to the wireless network. Check if you see the new network name ? If you see the new then try t connect and see if that works. This router WRT160N has issues with the firmware.

Take note all the wireless settings of the router first. Now go to the printer and Press Menu/Settings, look for wireless setup wizard. It should find the network, highlight it and connect. If it asks you for the network key, type your wireless network key. It only allows WPA-Personal(TKIP) and WEP. If you have WPA2 or AES, it will not connect
the great thing about the linksys brand is that they are owned by cisco and they will walk you thru the set up no matter when and where you bought that thing and they will spend all the time it takes to make you happy with the product. although the person you speak to will be in "new deli" india so they may need to repeat them selves many times.
have you tried access the router interface page with the computer hook directly to the router NOT wirelessly.???
I think I remember the linksys access page is at 10.10.10.100 in your internet explorer tool bar.
hi i would suggest to access your routers setuppage and set the channel to channel 11.
make sure also if your wireless network is secured, type the correct key those things are case sensitive.
to access the routers setuppage go to a computers that is connected to your linksys router (wired) then launch IE on the address bar type 192.168.1.1(this is the routers ip) then it will ask you for username and password for the username dont type any thing for the password type admin.
when your on the setuppage click on wireless tab. while on the wireless page set the channel to 11.
after that click apply or save settings on the page.
then after that try to connect to your wireless network on your laptop.
for further help you can call linksys hot line 1800-3267114
they will surely help you with this.
Have you reset the router?
Check the routers programming and tell the SSID to broadcast
Login to the router by typing 192.168.1.1 in an open IE window the default user name and pass are both admin
Change the name of your SSID from linksys to something familiar like your last name.
Might be better to factory default the router and start the programming over double check your WEP keys if you have any encryption codes set on both router and any PC's.
If these steps don't resolve the issue just let me know here and we will determine the cause.
