how can i turn my linksys wrt160n router into a wireless reciever?

Id like to plug my router into my computer via LAN and have it receive the wireless signal from my modem, so my computer can acces the internet that way. Is this possible? What is my first move? Thanks

  1. what version is it? It should say on the bottom. Its its 1.0,1.1, 3.0 then you can install DDWRT on there and use it as a wireless receiver. I used to do that with my old WRT54GL and my Belkin Share Max router before I ran a Hard wire connection.

  3. It is a Cisco Linksys wrt160n v2 . The number I think you're referring to is 49454451

    Yea that won't work. V2 isn't supported. There are a few other firmwares out there but I'm not familiar with them and I don't want you to risk bricking your router. Don't think what you want to do can be done with this router or if it can, again its not a firmware i'm familiar with.
