Take it easy. You don't need any installation cd. Connect your computer with the router and after the connection between pc - router established, click on start - run and at the white line type "cmd" without the quotes and hit enter. At the new black window type "ipconfig" and hit enter. Write down the numbers at the last line referring for Default Gateway. Open a browser window and at the address bar type the number you write down before and hit enter, without www etc at the beginning. You will go at the router's entry settings page. In case you don't know the user - password I have to tell you that the default credentials for Linksys routers are:
for user type "admin", without the quotes
for password type "admin'' or"1234" or none, without the quotes. Now on you can change any settings as you like.
In case of the above procedure don't work, locate and press the reset button in order to get the router at the default setting and retry the procedure.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

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 receive the 322 error when I´m trying to install my new WRT160N v3 Router, by Cisco.


I think you are trying to install the router using the CD. This CD has a bug. Even if your computer is connected to the router , it will say the computer is not connected to the router and it will give you error 322 or 321.
You can install the router without CD also.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem only.
connect the computer and the modem to the router and open the set up page of the router.
On the set up page you can change the settings of the router according to ISP.
