Sorry, a little more detail:

 

I'm connecting to an pre-existing network through a Zoom ADSL x6 router, I have green blue lights across the board and am connected to the internet through the ethernet cable during the installation process.

 

Setup will not complete.

 

Thanks...

As you want to connect the Linksys WRT160N to Zoom ADSL x6 router which is already configured in your network...You need to cascade both the router together...Try this link .

You double check if the Ethernet cable is properly connected from your computer to one of the Ethernet ports of the router. You check as well if the Ethernet port is lit up or flashing on the router. If you used the setup CD that came with, download the setup wizard from the website http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/routers/WRT160N.
