I just purchased a WRT160N v2 router and have spoken with Linksys tech support on the phone. It was suggested to try a firmware upgrade on the router ASAP, but:
When I go to the Linkys download page for the WRT160N https://www.linksysbycisco.com/CA/en/support/WRT16
there is -NO- selection available in the dropdown list for version 2 (either version 1.0 or 3.0).
Can you give me a link to the downloads/firmware upgrades for the WRT160N v2? Thanks

Try this link.
You have CA in your address and the one I gave you above has US. That one does have version 2. I'm trying to install it but no success yet. I've posted my problem.
On second thought, the CA may be for Canada. If that's the case, the v2 version is probably not sold in Canada and hence the reason for no v2 download.

The only known working version of V2 firmware for the 160N is located here:
Once downgraded, reset the router and reconfigure it.
