Very strange problem with WRT160N

For some reason, other devices (in this case, a laptop and Ipod) suddenly lost the ability to connect to the wireless router.

They worked fine yesterday, but now they do not have.

I tried to update the formware, I tried resetting the router a re-doing the settings, I tried power cycling the router, and none of it works.

The laptop and Ipod can see the network but cannot connect to it. The laptop says the connection is strong, but it still fails to connect.

I've had this router for almost four years and have never had this problem before, at least to that degree. Front, power cycling the router and/or re-start the laptop or PC still worked.

What could be the problem?


Try changing the channel of the router wireless... best channels is 9-6-3-1

  • Very strange problem with quick mask

    Hoping someone can help me with a very strange problem that just started to happen when I enter the quick mask in PS CS5. Let me guide you through the problem.

    (1) I opened my image in PS, go in the Mode mask quick and 'paint' my image in translucent red with a brush (100% of opacity, brush, etc. normal mode).

    Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 23.34.57.png

    (2) once I fully painted my picture in translucent red, I leave the Quick Mask mode and the area outside the translucent red is selected. I hit M for the marquee tool, right-click on the picture I have just painted and choose 'Select inverse', which then selects everything within the translucent red area (note that I made this a million times over the years).

    Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 23.35.25.png

    (3) my image is now selected. In general, what I do now is cut (cmd + x) that selected the image and paste it into another canvas, generally where is my biggest project. Whenever I did it, the image cuts and fits exactly as it is seen and leaves an empty space in the original image. However, when I cut it now, it seems to cut a transparent version, leaving behind a transparent 'ghost' of the original image.

    Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 23.35.27.png

    (4) then when I paste the image cut in a new canvas, it is transparent as a default value.

    Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 23.35.30.png

    I checked the transparency of all the paintings, and they are set to 100%. As I already said, I cut from images of no solid media using the quick mask all the time and it's never happened before. In fact, I made this weekend and it has only just begun in the last hour, so I think I clearly something clicked or activated a parameter without realizing account!

    In considering this explanation, I hope someone knows what is causing my pictures to cut and paste transparent after that I used the quick mask. It certainly is driving me crazy!

    Any advice or assistance would be most appreciated.

    Thank you

    In your first screenshot the color of foreground in the Toolbox is not 100% black (RGB 0,0,0)

    Until you try the quick mask, press D to set the foreground on black (RGB 0,0,0)

  • A very strange problem with DVD player (some DVD play not)

    Hello everyone.

    I bought a laptop Dell Inspiron 3543 2 months ago. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product, but I have a problem with the DVD player. When I insert some DVD discs, the driver reads some DVDs but not others. After trying to play DVDs, I see that the DVD player play about half of the DVD I'm looking for. Although I can guarantee, I didn't send my laptop to the service because I can't work even a day without my cell phone. So, in order to solve the problem, I bought a DVD player new, original Dell (the same model of dvd player, which is Panasonic Matshita DVD +-RW UJ8E2). Today I started using my new DVD player, but it also has the same problem as my old DVD drive or it also does not play some DVD.

    To make the issue even more strange, here are some details:

    -My dvd drives have no problem and I have tried many original DVDs (especially the original films). And all the dvd disks that do not play on my computer play on other computers with no problems. There is no problem with the disks.

    -Certainly no problem with the "DVD region Code". I use original DVDs with region code 2, which is the area code for my country.

    -All my drivers, the operating system and the dvd drive drivers are up to date. When I look at my DVD drive properties, it is written that "the dvd drive works properly.

    -When I insert a DVD disc, if my DVD player he plays, he plays each time. But if my dvd player does not play a dvd, and then he never plays it. So, there is a consistency in the dvd disc set to play or not. When a DVD disc does not play, my DVD player rolls the drive some time and then the DVD done pretending as if there is no disc in the drive.

    -Both my old and newly purchased DVD drives have exactly the same problem, so I think that there's no problem like a lens dirty. I also think that there is no mechanical problem with one of my DVD drives because my newly purchased, original DVD player also has the same problem.

    I thank everyone for any help or advice in advance.

    Today, I received my dvd player third, new, Chinese, not original from a seller of spare part. He plays all DVDs with no problems. :)

    If in the future someone always has the same problem as me and read this Web page to find a solution, you know where is the problem.

  • I am having a very strange problem with WMP 12 in WINDOWS 7

    Hello. I could use some help. A bit of background. HP can not solve the problem (I have a contract with the manufacturing service). I used this drive for 2 years without a lot of questions. I have more than 400 albums in my library.

    I got a new CD, sealed in its original packaging. The 1st thing I always do when adding new items to my library's copy of the disc. After that I tear to the library. Then I play WMP 12 on my desk. Everything was going well until the runway 13, when, after 00:28 seconds, he stopped play. I think a lot I have to send this back CD. Then after still ongoing at 01:16 he started playing again!

    I thought it was a little weird, I played both the original and the copy in my drive, they played very well. On my laptop, I played the original, he played without a break. I ripped the album to WMP 11 on my laptop and then saved on a flash drive. I used the flash drive to load the album to my office (WMP 12). He stopped playing exactly like the CD! Then I played the music taken from my Amazon music player and it plays very well.

    Please help, I know it seems trivial, but it drives me crazy (OCD, what can I say?).

    In addition, Ive ripped plus CD for my library without problem? Thanks for all the ideas.

    Hi Raymond - all the best for 2015.

    I read your Q When you first published and have waited to see if anyone has offered anything. Silence came the strong response! It is as you say - a strange. Track is playing well in one system and not another, etc.

    The only suggestion I can think of is open the file in an editor such as "Audacity" and that might give you a clue as to if there is a mistake that he stops playing and also a way to re - store version of wav music file seamlessly. It depends on how your OCD is ready to take you...!  :-) - you may need to download install and learn how use Audacity if you are not already using it or something similar.

    Let me know if you want to pursue this further. R

  • Very strange problem with my graphics card.

    Hello, I run Vista 64-bit.

    Good evening

    I have a pavillion desktop computer with which I mainly game and go to the web with. After a year of perfection, 20 days guaranteed since the computer goes through a horrible string of accidents. He started while going through the web, then ingame, for some time I couldn't even load past my password without crashing. After a while, I could finally access my desktop without the accident and run internet as well as a few other programs.

    I thought it was over, but it wasn't my games are not running. I go into the Device Manager and see that my graphics card has a "!" sign on its side. I'm trying to update the card, no difference. I go to the Web from NVIDIA site and download the latest update, restart the computer, no difference. I'm confused on what to do now, with the recession, money becomes low, I won't be able to pay an another 9800GT came with the computer.

    I went into safe mode. It the card claims to work very well, no. "!" and everything in his property shows no problem. Outside of safe mode, the problem reappears. It's the State in the map properties:

    "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

    Click on 'Search for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available. »

    After going to the Device Manager and uninstall my video card, I restarted the computer. After reboot, I could still run at 1440 x 900. An icon poped on the right to say that he recognized and has been installing this new driver (map). After installation, I restarted the computer. Tried to start a game, but he failed.

    Then downloaded the update for the card and he ran. I restarted after that and still no change. What should I do?

    Contact the manufacturer of your computer, ask them if your model is immune to nividia graphics card number, because this has happened to many new computers with graphics card NIVIDIA so some companies like sony said they have expanded their repair for 3 years after the warranty period. If the problem is caused by the graphic driver then repair and delivery costs will be covered by the manufacturer. If you still under warranty then definitely contact them. (you should be able to do online, if you have another pc)

  • Some very strange problems with zoom in/out effect on a still image

    Hello everyone!

    I try to do the zoom and effects. I use these effects to animate still images.

    To make, I use the standard "Motion" effect. I just put a keyframe [at the beginning of my image] and set the scale to 100% (for example), then I do another keyframe [at the end of my image] and set scale here about 150%. It works, but the result is terrible.

    When I start to play my animated picture effects (zoom in/out) distort my image. I'm starting to see a few lines in the whole of my image and it irritates my eyes really. I've seen these awful zoom when I used Ulead or Sony Vegas.

    I think I did something wrong. Can you help me solve this problem ?

    This distortion appears also when trying to animate my image using which and YPostion of the "Motion" effect

    I guess someone can not understand me and I decided to attach some files here. First is an original image without distortion. Second is this image with distortion. And the third is just my setting of this effect of "Motion".

    In conclusion: "Scale to the size of the image" is disabled. The size of my image is 2816 x 2112.

  • Strange problem with HP OfficeJet 6500 709n

    I have a very strange problem with my printer HP 6500 E709n wireless network.  I have recently upgraded to Windows 8 and everything worked well.  Then, all of a sudden I wasn't able to scan more.  The HP Solution Center says that the printer is disconnected.

    The weird part is that it appears in the section of Control Panel as active and properly connected printer and devices and I can still print to it, but not scan to it. He also says in the network section of the HP solutions center that the printer is connected and ready.  The printer is connected to my wireless network and I also use it with a Mac Mini.  The Mac can print and scan to it.

    No idea why this is happening and how to fix it?  Thank you.

    This problem of not being able to scan only started after upgrade to Windows 8?

    If so, then to solve the problem, you must first uninstall the Windows 7 software and then reinstall the software of Windows 8 long.

    To uninstall the software, follow these steps:

    1 right-click or press on and hold the lower left corner of the screen, then click or type programs and features. A list of installed programs.
    2. click or tap the name of your HP printer, and then click or tap on uninstall.
    3. follow the on-screen instructions to uninstall the software.

    After you have uninstalled it, go ahead and download the full software features for your printer. It can be found on the link below.

    Install this version of the software and try to scan now!

    Let me know if it works for you, good luck!


  • Strange problems with the database


    I just got my Fuze and am very happy with it; However, I am having a very strange problem with the database. I have a 16 GB sdhc card that I use with the "rocket" and there are about 4 songs on the card that will not play and have no information charge tag. Their tags appear in the tag browser (not the in the track information screen) as just an empty rectangle. Under the track information screen, sizes are listed as ~ 4000 mb. The songs will not play and I can not jump in front of one of these songs once they were loaded.

    At first, I suspected some kind of corruption of tag, so I set out that night to track down the problem. I removed the 16 GB card and reset the player. Then, I loaded one of the corrupt in the internal memory of the player. The track has been scanned and played correctly. Then, I removed the track of the internal memory and it loaded on another SDHC card. Yet once, everything worked correctly, so I knew that the card I was using was a kind of system files or physical problem. I returned the original 16 GB sdhc card in the reader and checked that the file was still unplayable, and then I plugged the "rocket" to my computer. I transferred the unplayable file on my computer and compared (with md5sum) to the original file, thinking that if there was the file system or physical corruption the copy of the map would be damaged. However, the files were equivalent.

    To make things even more interesting, I also have problems with the registration of the kind. I have some files tagged Genres such as 'Classic' and 'Rock '. In the list of the genre, I see this:











    So, there is corruption on the kind of 'Classic' but not the kind of "Rock". Each of the substrings of 'Classic' contains only a few titles, with most of the other titles listed where they should be. I checked that the tracks are labeled correctly and in exactly the same way as the other tracks that do not have this problem.

    I am at a total loss about what to do, and I'd really appreciate any advice or suggestions. I use the current firmware, 2.03.31a and the songs in question are in Ogg Vorbis format.


    Thanks for your replies.

    I managed to find what may be the problem. Tracks that received corrupt tags had the names of total path with more than 256 characters. It seems that the driver internal fat32 the rocket uses vomits all over the place when the path name is too long. Before the "rocket", I got an iPod running rockbox tags with the same directory structure that I have on the "rocket", so I don't think that this restriction on the length of the path name is a limitation or requirement of the fat32 file system. Reduce the path corrected the problem with the files being unreadable.

    However, the problem with foires genres the rest. Looking at the files show that corruption, they all have a little information in tags. Most of the information is contained in the hashes I have files that identify them via musicbrainz. The limit on the total number of characters in the tags of the track includes the "rocket" label is not read or use?


  • Strange problem with BT Headset!


    I have a very strange problem with BT headset.  My Z3 is model of official unlocked Docomo of SO - 01 G.  I got PlayStation Voxtube 500 BT headset BT version is THE 4.0.  This headset has been used with Nexus 5 (Android 5.1.1) without any problem and the battery last almost a week to stanby with a few minute talk time per day.  However, after not getting Z3 with Android 4.4.4, pairing with Voxtube has no problem.  Then, the battery is discharged within 4-5 hours stanby.  I tested it for 3 or 4 times, it has come down to that there must be something worng with the battery of the headset.

    So, I got with PlayStation representative claim (it is only a few months old).  Surprisingly, representative of PlayStation has all the test suggested no stanby time problem with their phones iPhone 5 or Sumsung Galaxy S5.  Then I took back recharged so its performance is very short wait duration the same as before.  So, I tested it with my iPad Mini 3 and performance return to normal standby time.

    So, it can be concluded for only problem is with the Z3. But once again with the mating with the other headset BT Jabra Tag2, stanby time is within the normal range (4-5 days).  When that happens?  I am very confused. Should I give up on PlayStation?

    Thank you for your time,

    Simply upgrade to 5.0.2 lolipop and hope this will help me on this issue.

  • Strange problem with the license...

    Hi all!

    I have a very strange problem and I got nowhere with navigation on all ads in this forum. My environment is as follows:

    An ESX 3.5 update 3 Server with 2 cards integrated network interface and two Intel Quad Port cards VT. I put the on board to be the port of the console and the other on board to be the network of Virtual Machines. Here are the two separate networks, separated by a Cisco firewall. The IP of the console is and virtual machines are on a network of 172.16.10.x. I also have a VC (physical) server with network cards two, one on the 10.10.10.x network and the other network 172.16.10.x. I installed the license server on the VC, and she won the 172.16.10.x listening address (although I discovered he will listen on the network 10.x.x.x). Then I edited the file hosts on the ESX Server to include the VC server using a name resolution. I ping the name/address of the server successfully. I also have my firewall configured to allow all traffic between two networks (as long as the traffic is initiated by the 10.10.10.x network). I cannot see any errors or not on the firewall.

    The strange thing is that I am able to the ESX by VC license but it stays there for a little while and then loses the configuration. Then, I try to do it again without success. I point to the assessment option and it works again. I then point to the license server and takes it. I can do the same thing on the ESX itself with similar results. I tried to use the name of host or IP address; exact same results. The error simply indicates that the server could not find the license server.

    The really strange thing is that even when the server is authorized, any action I do on the server (configuration, start and stop VMs, etc) is extermely slow and some of them simply because of time.

    Did anyone have clues here? I'm lost...

    Thank you in advance. ?:|


    Hi BDHHI.

    Do not know if she could solve your problems but... According to what you say, the license server becomes the 172... interface as the default interface. Go to network connections-> Advanced Options-> advanced settings and make sure that the interface with 10.10 IP... is on top, services will have this default IP address.

    On which network will be launching connection, maybe I'm wrong, but that it could be open in both directions.

    Kind regards

  • Very strange problem in planning


    I have a very strange problem, we have two cubes recipes and Wrkforce. There is basically two forms Web - one associated with Wrkforce and other recipes.

    In the Webform Wrkforce, users between rates of missing data and record forms and essentially running torque of BR that aggregates the entire enterprise, centre of cost, employee the individual Q and that inturn put up-to-date "Company absenteeism".
    Inturn 'Total company absenteeism' updates "Stored absenteeism" cube recipes.

    Now the problem is that all of a sudden the BR have stopped working... nothing changed... everything is still however "Absenteeism Total company" is not being calculated and thus stored absenteeism is not getting updated.

    Please can anyone suggest what could be the problem? Or where I can look for answers.

  • strange problem with Ericsson H5321


    I have a strange problem with Ericsson H5321 on my X 230. Until a few weeks ago, the card worked perfectly as a modem (at least on Linux, so I guess it would be too much work in Windows). Unfortunately, a few weeks ago disappeared from the network manager modem connection. I checked that all the special device for this files still exist:

    $ because I in/sys/class / * / * {ACM, wdm} * / device/interface; echo-n "${i}: ';" $ Cat {i}; fact
    / sys/Class/TTY/ttyACM0/Device/Interface: H5321 gw Broadband Mobile Modem

    / sys/Class/TTY/ttyACM2/Device/Interface: H5321 gw Mobile Broadband GPS Port
    / sys/Class/usbmisc/CDC-wdm1/Device/Interface: H5321 gw management of mobile devices to wide band
    / sys/Class/usbmisc/CDC-wdm2/Device/Interface: H5321 gw Mobile Broadband USIM Port
    $ lsusb | grep Ericsson

    .. .and I also checked it works like GPS (at least kind of: it generates data on/dev/ttyACM2 NMEA streams, but cannot get a GPS fix even after 45 minutes with access to an open sky).

    Then I tried to run windows 7 and the card is visible in the "Device Manager", but there is also no possibility to create the GSM connection in the connection menu in the bottom right.

    I tried a new install of Windows 7, I tried to reset the BIOS (even with the removal of the battery backup), but still I can't force them to work again. My BIOS is fully upgraded BTW: the problem appeared during the use of 2.61 and I also tried with recently published 2.62.

    My cell phone is always on the extended warranty, but as modem bought in line with the basic configuration it was only covered by the warranty of 12 months has expired

    Today it came to my mind that, as the modem itself seems a little work (present, responsive GPS device) then maybe it's a SIM card reader that is actually damaged (which would explain a bit why the camera itself is present, but I can't create a connection). Can someone confirm or deny my theory? If it is valid, then I could still replace SIM card reader because it is part of the basic configuration.

    Thanks a lot for your suggestions!

    [Mystery solved: I managed to put the SIM card on a wrong side...;]
    [I hate myself so muuuuch;]
    ([btw: Lenovo could fix their SIM card reader, so there is only one possible way to put a SIM card using his corner of heart: it would have saved me 2 days of stress and an investigation;]) )
