    I’ve been trying everything I can to get my devices connected wirelessly to my WRT160N v3 but Im thinking its time to give up on it.

    I’ve had the router for a couple of years, she has always been a bit temperamental but in the last 6 months she has just stopped allowing me to access the internet wirelessly most of the time.

    All of my devices can see the strong signal and connect to it, but get no internet – then occasionally for 20 minutes at random times in the day, they can suddenly get the net - Laptop with XP, Android Tablet and iPhone.

    I am connected to the router via Ethernet right now, perfect connection as always but if I attempt to connect wirelessly I know I will see the device, connect and then nothing.

    Following advice on other sites I have done the following:

    Power cycled
    30 second reset
    Firmware upgrade

    Nothing has helped. I never used to have any problems which lead me to suspect something inside the router has just given up, but then why does it come back sometimes? I just don’t get it.
