Changing routers can be a hassle, especially if all wireless connections are in-sync with the old one. The basic steps below in setting-up a wireless connection applies to all brands of routers. Most softwares provided by manufacturers, both computers and routers, cause problems with Windows due to incompatibility issues. We will use the Wireless Zero Configuration or the Windows Wireless Manager that comes with all versions of Windows to put ease in setting up your Linksys WRT160N.
Click the link below for proper cable connections in setting up your wireless network. It also provides somewhat a checklist on what you need for wireless connectivity.
Are you trying to set up the router. You can do it manually without the CD. Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem. If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first. If your computer is able to go online through the modem then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP. Click Here for step by step by instructions
firstly, connect your modem to the router and your pc to the router. Next, reboot your PC.
try to access the net. If you now can, great. If not, you may need to switch on DHCP and NAT in your modem.
DHCP means Dynamic Host Control Protocol and NAT means Network Address Translation. Both of these services are required to allow your PC to access the net through your router.
I am assuming that you have a modem and a separate network switch.
If you have a modem and the router is another modem with a network switch built in, then you cannot use them both at the same time. If the router has a modem built in, remove your old modem and set up the router according to its manual. Entering your ISP login details either through the routers setup software or through the routers own browser page. The manual for the router will tell you how to do this. If the router is a netwrok switch, then you will need to log into your modems browser page and turn on DHCP and NAT. Then save and reboot the modem and reboot your PC. Once everything has rebooted, go into your control panel, Network connections and check that a valid connection has been made. If yes, then access the net using your browser. If no, try the Network Setup Wizard to repair or replace the existing setup with an updated one. Just run through the wizard choosing the correct or most appropriate options from the menu's..
Manual Setup: This option is best if you cannot use the wizard on the CD, are replacing an existing router, or are technically knowledgeable. Follow the instructions in this manual to set up your router.
Connecting Your Router 1. Connect the router, the computer, and the modem. a. Turn off your computer. b. Turn off and unplug the cable or ADSL broadband modem. c. Locate the Ethernet cable (1) that connects your computer to the modem. d. Disconnect the cable at the modem end only (2). e. Securely insert the free end of the cable (1) into a LAN port on the router, such as LAN port 4 (3).
f. Securely insert the yellow cable (5) that came with your router into the yellow Internet port of the router (4) and the other end into the modem (2).
Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access To access the router using its login name and password, follow these instructions. 1. Connect to the router by typing http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field of your browser, then click Enter.
For security reasons, the router has its own user name and password. When prompted, enter admin for the router user name and password for the router password, both in lower case letters.
Enter the user name and password. The router will display its home page.
When the router is connected to the Internet, click the Knowledge Base or the Documentation link under the Web Support menu to view support information or the documentation for the router. If you do not click Logout, the router will wait 5 minutes after there is no activity before it automatically logs you out. Set Up and Test Basic Wireless Connectivity Follow the instructions below to set up and test basic wireless connectivity. Once you have established basic wireless connectivity, you can enable security settings appropriate to your needs. 1. Log in to the router at its default LAN address of http://www.routerlogin.net with its default user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and password you have set up. 2. Click the Wireless Settings link in the main menu of the router. 3. Note that the default SSID is NETGEAR. 4. Set the Region. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate. 5. Click Apply to save your changes. 6. Configure and test your computers for wireless connectivity. Program the wireless adapter of your computers to have the same wireless network name (SSID) as the router. Check that they have a wireless link and are able to obtain an IP address by DHCP from the router. Note:

You need to sign into the dlink router and check the status tab, to make sure that the router has picked up the modems IP address. it sound like it hasn't, and is just assigning lan IPs to the client machines, butd oes not have a valid WAN IP to the internet.
If it hasnt got a wan ip, you want to do a hard boot on the router .unplug the router ONLY for 30 sec, and power back up the router only ...not the modem this should allow the router to find the modem IP
it will as long as the modem/router is connected to a phone line, instead of the pc, the only cable connected to the pc should be a ethernet cable; or you have the pc networking set that it connects via another pc instead of through a gateway, re run the wireless network wizard.
After a small amount of trouble, I have configured my Win 98 laptop to use
Netgear WG111v2 wireless modem to connect to my wireless router. I used
the driver from the CD that came with the modem, following the instructions and
got to the point, after rebooting a couple of times, where I was connected to the
router, but could not reach another computer on my network (or the outside world).
I double-clicked on the wireless model icon in the system tray and noticed that,
on the NetGear SMART WIZARD panel, the WEP key was set to use the
"Create from passphrase" option, even though I supplied the already generated key (the
hex numbers) during installation of the modem. (The modem was using the key
as a passphrase to create another key.)
To fix this, on the SMART WIZARD panel, I
selected the "Enter key manually" option and, er, entered the hex key (the one
the router/access point uses for security) manually.
I hit "Apply" on the Wizard and, lo and behold, I was pinging the rest of my network.
I rebooted one more time (I had some leftover bad settings in my "Network Connection"
TCP/IP entry for the WG111 connection; I reset them before the reboot
to allow my network to automatically assign an address) and I was then able
to view my favorite site (bythestadium) from my favorite browser (firefox)
