Is the wireless card "ENABLED" in your computer if it is I think you should connect a cable to the computer/router and log in to the router to see if something has changed in the setup for the wireless settings.

Check the IP address on the Vista wireless network connection. Make sure that there is not static IP address on the wireless connection. That could be one of the reason.

Contant need top reboot the program


Do a wireless scan on your computer and out how many wireless access is in your neighborhood. More than likely that your router is sharing the same wireless channel number as your neighbor's. Go to your router and cheange to opposite of what your neighbor is on.

Linskys wireless-g broadband router not connecting to network


first thing, we need to know what this d-link is... Is this a modem? or another router? Can you check its model #, perhaps at the back? How many ports does it have? To verify your internet connection, try connecting your computer to the dlink and check its IP address (Go to Start> Run> type "cmd". On the black window, type "ipconfig"). Do you have internet connection when your pc is straight to the dlink?

I'm thinking that dlink is conflicting with the linksys settings. If it is, we need to change the IP address of the linksys router. Post back what you find out.

Lost internet connection


Change the wireless channel of the router to channel 1, 9 or 11. Usually other routers use channel 6. If there are other wireless devices on your area like a wireless cellphone, microwave, try to relocate them or the router itself. Place your router on a higher location so that you will be able to get a better signal.

Lets see if this works out for ya.
1. In your browser go to http://192.168.1.1
2. The user will be "admin" and the password field leave it blank
3. Go to the Setup Tab
4. On WAN Connection Type make sure it is set to "Obtain an IP Automatically"
5. Go to the DHCP tab and make sure it is enabled
6. Unplug the Roadrunner modem and the Linksys Router.
7. Wait around 15-30 seconds
8. Plug the Roadrunner modem in and wait until all the lights except the ethernet/computer connection are on.
9. When they are all on plug the Linksys router power back in
10. Wait around 30 seconds and see if your getting a connection
Otherwise get back to me. Good luck.

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.
