Connect a PC or laptop by wire to one of the router's LAN (marked in blue) ports. Then, fire up an internet browser and go to 'http://192.168.1.1'. When prompted to enter your credentials, leave the user name field blank and enter 'admin' as password. You'll, then, be navigating the web-based utility, and will be able to tune your router up the way you want.
By the way, if its user guide happens to be missing, and also to get detailed instruction on how to set your router's parameters in the appropriate way, feel free to download it from this location.
Please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos

I want to change my router password


You can open a browser and put 192.168.1.1 on the address bar, that should open the Linksys user interface page, you would be asked for the current username and password to access the settings and get to where you can change the password. If you don't know what the current username and password is, you can hard reset the router by pushing the reset button on the back of the router for 10-15 seconds. After that you can try to access the Linksys user interface, login by leaving the username blank and the password is "admin"

How do i find and delete the internet security? it won't allow much of anything to be added to my computer grand19351@hotmail.com


Have you installed the WRT160N router using the CD?
Sometimes when you install this router it will install the Home network defender software. And because of that software you may get error message while accessing some websites.
There is not way to uninstall that software but you can reset the router and reconfigure the router manually without the CD.
Once you reset the router it will come back to the factory default settings and you will need to reconfigure the router.
If you just want to change the internet security then you can open the router setup page and check the access restriction settings.

Linksys router wrt160n unable to be detectd


If that is the case you must do a hard reset first. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Make sure your computer is connected to port 1 and your modem is connected to internet port of the router. Try to set it up again.

Cannot access remote management of WRT160N Router at all.


did you changed the Remote Management Web Interface to use a different port other than port 80? some defaults to use 8080. So in your case, try this address in IE: http://10.0.0.250:8080

Limited or no connectivity to the internet. my setup: the telephone port is approx 30m from where i need internet access. Originally I had a dlink wireless router set up but was connected via cable, now...


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.
