then your computer sees the router

if you get back a message that host is unreachable, you can check to see that your nic is ok by typing
netsh diag gui
and clicking ok
a help and support window opens eventually

click 'scan your system'
when its done, look down at the bottom at modems and network adaptors

at the right, if its blank or fail, is bad

also, try to set it up in safe mode, a firewall may be blocking you

click on start, run, type msconfig and click ok
a system configuration utilities window opens
click on the boot.ini tab
put a mark by network
move 2 to teh righr and put a mark by network
drop down and click apply and move left and click close
restart the computer
it will come up in safemode
click on your user account and click ya when it asks
do you want to run in safe mode

when you in safe mode, open internet explorer and type and see if you can access the router
the username and password are both admin

if you have DSL, set it up for PPPoE on the basic set up tab and put in your username (your email address like and your password)

click save changes at the bottom and continue
click the status tab and if it says connect, click it
if it says disconnect, leave it alone and open antoher internet explorer window and go to to see if you online

if you are, click start, run, type msconfig and click ok
when the window comes open, click on the boot.ini tab again and unmark safeboot, click apply and close and restart the comptuer to get back to regular mode.

Are you trying to run the CD that comes with the router?
I think you can try to setup your router manually instead of running CD. WRT160N router has issues with the firmware so I will suggest you to upgrade the firmware of WRT160n router first.

Linksys WRT160N Connection Issues.

Sadly, this router has horrible reviews and is known for this problem:

Can you return it for another model?
Can you getLinksys to replace it?

the best one is the LINKSYS WRT54GL, but if you are stuck with the one you have...

If you have tried all these things and you are very brave (or don't care if you need to buy another router) why not try flashing it with an after market O/S?
