First make sure that you don't have any devices straining the network. Culprits of this could be spyware on one of your user's machines, someone downloading large amounts on your network, and an unsecured network that allows anyone to connect.

A possible way to eliminate the router being the issue would be to disable the wireless access through the router's administrative panel, and then connecting directly to the router with an ethernet cable. Before doing this run a speed test at http://www.speedtest.net/ and then disable the wireless.Try surfing the web to see if there is a noticeable difference, and then run another speed test.

Compatibility with high speed ADSL2 Broadband


Yes, Linksys WRT160N is 100% compatible with ADSL2. Linksys WRT160N is a Broadband router.

you will not be able to use the linksys WRT160N, as an ADSL2 modem router. you should be using an ADSL2 Modem separately and connect the cable from the modem to the Linksys WRT160N. Hope this clarify the doubt.

Booted off aol


that means either AOL or the poker gameroom server is having a problem.
you can get the website fromt the URL. when you are at the game room.
get out of AOL and just type in the URL, and go direct.
if you still have the same problem, then it is the gameroom server.
not much we can do, expect for you to find a another poker gameroom.

Unable to use with aol


Try calling them directly, AOL uses software which messes with your TCP/IP settings and not compatible with other ISPs like Verizon, NEtZero, etc...

Router and aol


Connect the Router to the modem using Ethernet wire and then connect the laptop with an ethernet cord also and run the set up cd. make sure you get the right cabling.

and if you wnat to go wireless , then after running the set up cd, and was successful to make the wired conenction worked, then you can unplug the laptop now from the router and check if able to detect signal form router. usually you will get the prompt on the lower right hand cormer of the laptop.

then if is able to detect the signal, then log -on to that network.

Belkins router not connecting to cable modem


You need to start from beginning. Clear all temp internet files and run this programme Start>Run ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter. Get into the routers settings(probably 192.168.2.1) and ensure in the Lan settings that 'DHCP Server' is on and wireless is enabled.(you might need to be connected by RJ45 lan cable first) If it's a 125mbps router change settings to 54mbps to try that speed first(especially as your wireless cards will be 54 mbps) look in Mac address Filtering is off. Look in the DHCP Client list and see if your pc's were allocated ip addresses, if so it should allow an internet connection. Go to both your pc's wireless cards properties and under TCP/IP properties ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Restart both pc's and the router, disconnect cable and try wirelessly

AOL Broadband Cable


The following routers are the only models that support the AOL Broadband Cable service. Note: All Linksys routers support AOL DSL connections due to the standard PPPoE login and authentication connection type used with that service. Please be sure to check the version number of your router (which can be found on the underside label). Only the specific models and versions listed here are supported by AOL Cable: * BEFW11S4 * BEFW11S4 v2, v3, and v3.2 * BEFSR41 * BEFSR41 v2 * BEFSR11 * BEFSRU31 * BEFSR81 * BEFSR81 v2 * HPRO200 (Available from AOL only at this time) You must Enable the "AOL Parental Controls" option located in the Security tab of the web-based Setup utility pages of these routers in order to get a connection using AOL Cable. You may access the utility by visiting http://192.168.1.1 in a web browser and by logging in using the router's password (by default, the password is admin).
