Hi Renwar13,

This is because on the router wireless page the name of the network was changed.

Usually Linksys is the default name and the person who manages the wireless network would have changed to some other name so as to prevent un authorized access to the WLAN.Please check the right name of the signal and try.


Regards,
Gary.

Get Network Magic ... download for evaluation.

This is a tremendous network management tool well worth the $. If you dont pay, you can still use most features.

Get it and use it to get your connection going at least.

Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then connect the computer to the router. If you are connecting a wireless computer then disable the wireless connection on the computer. open the set up page of the router. change the wireless network name to something different that you never used before. change the standard channel to 11. save the settings. Try to connect to the wireless network. Check if you see the new network name ? If you see the new then try t connect and see if that works.
This router WRT160N has issues with the firmware.
Upgrade the firmware of the router. power cycle the router.
