For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.

Your "access point" means the thing that your computer connects to in order to get on the internet. An "access point" can be the dsl modem, a router or switch inbetween the computer and the internet connection or the point of entry to the internet - depending on what you are using to connect and get on line.
You mentioned you have a broad band connection with t mobile. Is this the T mobile home service link that gives you regular phone service and internet? If so - what is the name of the box your connecting your phone and pc to?
What is the name of the equipment that t mobile gave you to use that broad band link?
Are you using a desktop or a laptop? Wireless connection? or a wired connection with a ethernet cable (looks like a phone cable but a little bigger on the plug end)?
To answer my questions go back to your original problem posted on fixya and use the comment or reply link in blue.
To be fair, the whole thing is very easy to hook up, and the range is good ... able to cover the entire house, upstairs, down stairs and even outside. ... now I can hook the output from my computer speakers to the docking ...

Only use one router. At the point of entry of the internet service provider(dsl or cable) connect your wireless router.(prefer middle of house) If you need a repeater for your signal do so but I don't think you will need one with N technology.
if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3. This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.
The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.
Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router. Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location. If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)
In order for you to go on-line with the PS3, you will first need either broad band or DSLInternet connection. Once you have that, all you will need to buy then is a wireless router. You will need to hookup the wireless router to your broad band or DSL modem. Once you have done this, you have two option on how to get on-line. You can hard-wire your PS3 to the wireless modem or you can use the blue tooth wireless net-card that is already built into your PS3 to go on-line.
Try putting the router ip address in your browser address bar, if the router configuration page is displayed this would normally mean there is not a problem with your wifi connection.
Most routers will from these pages indicate wether you are connected to the internet successfully if you are unable to determine this from the indication lights on the router.
