Customer Question
I have a Linksys WRT160Nv3...
I have a Linksys WRT160Nv3 wireless router. I can connect wired but not wireless. I can see my network with full signal strength. I have my kids Xbox setup as wireless and it was working a few days ago but I cannot connect anymore. I tried connecting to the router through my PC but no luck there either. Can you help?
