Hi everybody, I have been recently having problems with my Linksys WRT160N V2 Router and I was just wondering if any of you can help. This all started when i borrowed this router to my friend when I was gone on vacation. Please don't ask why I would let someone borrow my router. So he reset it to get rid of my SSID and Password. It worked fine for him but when I brought it home i just stopped working in the sense that it does not give the devices connected to it internet, but yet the internet light on it is flashing. I try to go to 192.168.1.1 and change the setting but it requires a password and everything I type in is just completely. I have tried resetting it and nothing. This router was a breeze to install when I first got it and gave me no problems in the past of this severity. So please respond if you have any suggestions or if this has ever happened to you and what your solution was.

Easiest fix is to get the router configuration log-in details from the friend you lent it to, as it sounds like he changed that too.

Alternatively, you may not be resetting it correctly. This may help:
