Router speed is really slow and my laptop can't connect to the internet.


Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

With the router hooked up getting on the internet is slow. hooked to cable one direct it's o.k.


Your Wireless speed is all down to the quality of the router and wireless card, and where you are in relation to the router.
Hooking up direct is always going to be faster.
You could experiment with the position of the router in the room.
Check your speeds wired and wireless, use www.speedtest.net.
You could buy a better antenna for the router

Range on the wifi


Need more info, but it could be a number of things. Many thing affect your wireless speed:

-Walls
-Distance
-Other wireless devices, or devices that emit radiation (Microwaves, cordless phones, baby monitors and etc.)

Other things could be:
-your computer is just plain slow
-there are too many people connected to the wireless at the same time
-your internet connection is slow either in general, or just temporarily

More advanced (and unlikely) reasons:
-your network adapter has been forced to operate at a slower speed
-your router is set to operate at a slower speed in its configurations

The wireless works but speed varies quite dramaticly


You don't talk about the laptop you're using or the type of wireless card it has... It can be several issues including the wireless capabilities of your laptop, the need for a firmware upgrade on your router and tweaking the wireless settings. I would go to the Linksys forums http://forums.linksysbycisco.com/linksys/board?board.id=Wireless_Routers and post your issue with as much detail about your laptop and current router settings as possible. The users on this forum can definitely help you.

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.
