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.

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.
Let me know what happens

Try hard resetting it for 1 minute to 2 minutes ; press and hold the reset button properly for that certain period and after that powercycle 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.
