Welcome to FixYa
Indication of Router Lights:

  • Power light blinks. If LAN or WAN cable is plugged in, their respective lights will flash on activity.
  • Power light turns off for several seconds.
  • All lights, except power light, turn on and then off.
  • Power light blinks slowly, then faster, and WLAN light will turn on.
  • Once Power light and WLAN light are on solid, the router is fully rebooted.

A working router should show solid green power light. upgrade the firmware of the router.

SOURCE: weak wireless signal - WRT160N is a piece of trash

We found Linksys wifi units to be unusable a few years ago. I had a stack of them that the wifi had died or was unstable or short ranged and none of these were more than a year old. They have had quality problems for about 5 years. Tech support is handled overseas and consists of them reading off of cheat cards. If you get through to a tech you will find them not to understand any technical jargon and once not even normal non technical english.

Our "fix" (and what I'd reccomend if you want to avoidl headaches) was to yank out all remaining Linksys units and replace with a different brand. We didn't see any difference with the models, they all failed in some way. I don't know what happened to the company but they used to have a very good product. They don't have that now.

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.

Does holding the reset button in do anything? If not, might be that the router is simply fried and time to get a new one. If it does react to resetting try just connecting one device to it to see if you can get to the web interface and configure.

Does my WRT160N have a WPS button and if so, where is it?


The Linksys WRT160N has WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). If you are using WPA-PSK encryption (recommended), then you can easily connect the C4780 to your wireless network using WPS:


1) On the Linksys router, press the WPS button that is top of the case just under the Cisco label. When the LED on the button starts to blink, then the WPS process has started.

Why is my port lights and internet lights blinking no power light comes on at all?


If the indicator for the numbers and the internet are blinking like christmas lights, this indicates that might be a hardware problem on your linksys router. A working router should show solid green power light. You may still resolve this by upgrading the firmware of the router.
