Playstation 3 disconnecting from wireless gaming

Linksys loves to ship their routers with out-dated firmware. If you haven't updated the firmware of your router, that would be the first thing I'd do. From what I've read about routers and PS3, a lot of routers had trouble when they came out but had firmware updates to resolve the problem.

You'll need to go to the below link and select your version to get firmware downloads specific to your Model router and version number. The version number is listed on the bottom of your router next to the model.

Be sure to read up on how to update the firmware and be sure you only update the firmware from a computer connected via WIRED connection to the router. Doing it wirelessly will cause disconnection from the router mid update and will cause your router to become a paper-weight!

The above link is a good website to find out a lot of information about Linksys routers and how to secure/update/configure them.

I have a linksys wrt150n wireless router

Do you see the wireless light blinking? IF yes then there are a few things you should try.
1. Factory reset. Press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds then reconfigure your router and see if it resolves the issue
2. Firmware update. Download the firmware update and then access you router and click on firmware update and browse for the update you have downloaded(you have to extract it first just in case its zipped) Hopefully that will do the trick.

If none of the these work then its a hardware fault and you will have to get your router serviced!
