I have a Linksys WRT160Nv3 wireless router and a blackberry curve 8900. My blackberry tells me that it will generate a PIN, which I will then enter somehow into the router to satisfy its WEP security...

it wont, Mobile devices do not have the option to have a generated pin the same as for a Router vice versa, the only you can get connected to your router from your blackberry is to have your router security key disabled. this will allow you to connect any mobile device on your router, a PSP and other wireless devices than can use wireless internet.

Troubles connecting WRT160Nv3 Linksys router to Wii

I am thinking the router was set to get it's IP from the modem and when you changed the IP after the power failure, is when you problems started. I suggest looking at your networks IP addresses. I think they are not on the same subnet.
My first step would be to record the settings and do a hard reset on the router, then proceed to reinstall the settings and make sure your network is on the same subnet.
