Do you mean that you're trying to enable such things as file transfers with the PS3 over a Wireless network?

Well the PS3 isn't capable of full file sharing with a PC. However, you can set up a windows media server and if setup correctly the PS3 can actually play and download MP3's, Videos, and Pictures from that service.

Setting up a windows media server isn't really difficult, you've just got to set it up over your network. It's all in the PC, and the best idea is to use the Windows Live service to find the exact procedure of setting it up for your system. You can also download any needed software through that service as well.

I hope this helps you out bud. Personally I wish it would work the other way as well. I'd like to have the ability to back up my save games and system data on my PC.

Cycle both, meaning turn both wireless radios off then on, which might mean unplug the router and reboot the laptop. Try again. If nothing, make sure the router is set to broadcast the SSID by going to 192.168.1.1 and using the web interface to the router. Check those other settings and make sure your wireless is enabled and all. Also, Vista likes to corrupt wireless settings, so if the connection is already saved, remove it from Vista's wireless list of preferred networks and start again from scratch.

How to Connect a Laptop to a Wireless Router Using a Windows Operating System
Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection , which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
Click on "Properties."
Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Network status can be checked in PS3 settings - it says whether the PS3 is connected to the network or not. If you see that it is OK, then you can check the router - it usually lists attached devices, also enable UPnP option if it is not ON yet.

If you have a problem with PS3 in wireless mode - try to connect it to the router with a Ethernet cable (configure PS3 network settings correspondingly) - if it works this way the problem most likely in wifi configuration either on the router or the PS3 side.

I hope this can help

If you are hardly doesn't connect even your wireless station is been detected why not try to set your settings manually in your wireless card.

This is when you are behind a router.

Goto Network and sharing center. Click on Manage Wireless Network. Click on Adapter properties. Click Internet Protocol version 4. Click properties, then set the ipaddress of your laptop it doesn't have to be identical to any of your existing connection, your subnet, default gateway. And also input your IP DNS.

It's the other way around - your PS3 and PC need to be configured to "see" your router. That is, your router's settings, specifically the SSID, channel #, and security options, need to be set correctly in the PS3 and PC.

First, I am going to assume that you are running a Windows-based operating system, and my ideas are going to be specifically oriented towards Windows XP. If you use Windows 2000 or Vista, the operations I describe will be slightly different, so ifyou're not real familiar with those operating systems, let me know andI can send you revised instructions.

If your router isbroadcasting its SSID (it's unique ID), which is an option in mostrouters, then your laptop should be capable of detecting it. You shouldhave an icon on your desktop named "My Network Places". Right-click onit and select PROPERTIES. A dialog box should pop-up that shows yournetwork connections. If your wireless connection is installed correctly, you should see i, possibly with a red "X"through it, which is OK. Right-click on it and select VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

Another dialog box should pop-up that will list all of the available wireless networksin your vicinity. You should be able to see your router in this listand it will likely have a name associated with the router'smanufacturer (e.g. USR, Netgear, Linksys, etc.). It should also be thenetwork that has the strongest signal since you are close to it. Youshould now be able to select it and then click on the CONNECT button.

Whetherthe connection process is completed successfully, you will see anotification of this. But before you do anything, bring up Internet Explorer and see if you can reach a website like www.cnn.com.

Hope this helps.

Hi...unable to connect to ps3 using siemans gigaset se587 wireless router


hi there,
first you need to make sure u can access your wireless router with no problems and the wireless is turned on for your ps-3...then u need to forward some ports...

Turn on PS3 and goto Settings, Network Settings.
Select Internet Connections. If it asks you want to be disconnected select Yes. Select EASY. Select wireless

Select SCAN this will take a few minutes. The PS3 should find your router and already have the SSID# so just type in your WEP key. Select save and then wait a couple of minutes then select test. It should hook up.

If it hooks up with NAT3 then you will have to enable UPnP on you router. type in http://192.168.1.1 on your computers web browser.

username: admin
password: admin

Click on the advanced tab and then on Universal plug n play and then make sure both check boxes are marked.

Then on the PS3 make sure the UPnP is enabled also in the network settings.

This should give you network and NAT2.

please try this link for port forwarding help:-
