Purchased a new router, D-Link 615R. Main Desktop computer is reading the connection fine. PS3 was able to connect via wireless fine as well. Laptop was reading the connection but could not bring up websites. D-Link could not figure out the problem. Returned the router and switched back to the old one, which is D-link as well but it is wireless G. Now the laptop is not connecting to that router either. It does not even read the wireless connection. Before the new router came into the picture everything was working perfectly.

Re: Unable to connect to the Internet
Check to see if your wireless card is displayed under “Network Adaptors” in “Device Manager”. You can access the "Device Manager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If it is detected and there are no alerts or errors, try uninstalling the wi-fi card, reboot the laptop and reinstall the drivers.

thought I should clarify my experience one last time in hopes that it
may help someone. I was able to connect fine for a month before the
1.50 update and then things got really wierd. I have gone through
entire days unable to connect to the network and entire days able to
connect. Meanwhile I had full use of the PS3 internet browser and no
other computer or internet issues. I can currently confirm that if I
return my PS3 internet settings the original "automatic" settings I
will not be able to connect, with these DNS settings in the PS3 I have
no problems.I have cable internet access through Adelphia with a Linksys WRT54GS router communicating wirelessly with my PS3... GOOD LUCK! The
information I used to create this fix contained a link that has
provided us with router specific DNS information to be used if the
numbers provided do not work. http://www.opendns.com/start/at_home.php Now,
a day later, I am able to connect with the original automatic settings
for everything including DNS. I must also point out that the network
performance is much faster using the automatic settings and recommend
using alternate DNS settings only when neccessary.
All I can say for those still having problems is reboot EVERYTHING.
Your router, modem, PS3 and any other device that may be connected to
If you still have problems try connecting the ps3 directly to your modem not through the router...
you could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it. MY Components: -Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G). -Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop) -Linksys Wireless G/B Router -G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and -Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer
At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help? -When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks
Try unplugging both the modem and the router. count to 15 then plug back in and try.
Keep in mind also that some routers dont connect 100% till you open a browser, weird but I have had similar problems.
It sounds like you may have problems at both ends.
Several things come to my mind;
make sure you shut down ALL programs in the background.
you are trying to problem solve by elimination, so close anything that may connect to the internet and take away that variable.
scan for spyware etc.
do a registry clean, temp files cleanup etc.
sometimes restarting the pc can help
open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.
