Friends of mine have just bought a LinkSys WAG160N to replace their current DSL modem and wirelessrouter, which they asked me to install. For what it's worth: they have a Belgacom ADSL internet connection.
I disconnected the incoming cable from the DSL modem, plugged it into the WAG160N, and hooked up the four ethernet cables from the router to the WAG160N as well. After turning on the power, the power led started flashing, and the WAG160N indicated that one computer was connected (the others being switched off at the moment) and that wireless was available. No internet connection, though.
After checking the single computer that was turned on, I could see that it had received an IP from the DHCP, and that I could see the router perfectly well. Still no connection to the internet though.
There was an install CD within the box, which I've tried. It failed, stating some obscure message about the windows installer service. After several attempts, it still refused to install, and I started to try the LinkSys assistant (sorry, forgot the real name) to connect to the internet. By following all the steps (powercycling the router etc...), I still was not able to connect to the internet.
At the moment, I'm at a loss as to what I should do next. My own connection at home is a cable modem - sometimes it helps to wait an hour or so after switching devices, so I gave them the advice to let it all rest for a few hours and try again. Besides that, I have no idea as to what I should try next.
Is there something I missed, or is there a problem with this particular router? How can I get this router up and running?
Thanks in advance!
