Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

1 Answer

My wireless internet on my WRT160N keeps dropping when I use Yahoo secure log in. Seems to infrequently drop at odd times, but I can definitely drop it every time at yahoo trying to go to paypal. Firmware is up to date, I use Mac Permit. My wireless PC doesn't have ts problem anywhere else. I have changed channels, tried turning of DCHP thinking my modem had it. neither worked.

Xomputer will inexplicably lose the signal. A few


I think the problem must be with the router. When it drops the connection, you can see other networks but not yours.
that means at that time the wireless signal on your router must not be broadcasted.

Cannot log into Yahoo Mail Host Name: p372.my.re1.yahoo.com Yahoo! ID: carol_anne_email Error Type: (UDB:1) Date/Time: Tue, 23 Feb 10 14:39:08 -0800


It seems to be an ongoing problem today. I would try cleaning out your cache and see if that helps. On your browser click on Tools. Then there is a drop down menu. The very last choice is the one to click Internet Options followed by the Delete button under browsing history. Good luck.

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
