Are you refering the setup wizard when you say welcom screen?
there are times that if the physical connection is not right and the computer dont have the right ip address or there is a conflict with the IP address of the modem and the router you will get this problem, not being able to configured the router using the setup cd.
There is another way to get it configure. via the web user interface of the router. If you can provide me with the model no. and brand of your modem and the name of your internet provider (ISP). I may be able to give your a step by step guide on how you can configure the router for internet connection.

Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on wireless settings then wireless security then click on WEP and there is code it is your password to connect wifi. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

WRT160N Wireless Router : i just bought a new laptop and a lynsis wrt160n......


The wired and wireless speed will always be different.
The maximum wired speed will be 100 Mbps. That means the wired connection is working properly.
Wireless connection speed will depend on the router and the wireless adapter on your computer.
If you are using B-Adapter then max speed will be 11 MBPS. IF it is G-Adapter then max speed will be 54 Mbps.
The N-adapter will give you more speed.
Check in the Device manager which adapter you are using on your wireless computer.
One more thing you can try changing the wireless channel on the router.
You will need to access the router settings page.
Update the drivers of your wireless adapter on the computer.
You have WRT160N router.
This router has issues with the Firmware.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.

Linksys WRT160N Connection Issues.


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

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16833124277

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?

Wusb54gc connection with wrt160n


If the desktop is a Win XP computer, Uninstall the WUSB54GC, restart the computer and then once it boots up and ready, plug the wusb54gc, once it ask for the drivers insert the cd and let it find the drivers then install it.You will be using the Windows wireless configuration and see if that will work.

Aquiring network address


Hey there,

in connecting wirelessly to the router, we need to make sure the encryption on the router.

Access the router setup screen, check the IP address first of the computer.

Open IE type there 192.168.1.1 username is blank and password is admin.

once it is on the setup screen checked the wireless tab and look for wireless security, verify it and try to connect again.

in your wireless computer, right click wireless connection and go to view available wireless network, try to connect - input the network key if in case it is not asking you for it, click the changed the order of the preferred networks and then removed all the preferred networks there, then try to connect again and you will now be asked for a network try to connect and you should be connected then.
