Laptop with broadband internet and router. how to connect PS3?

I bought a Netgear router to hook up to PS3/internet. The netgear wizard "can't detect my modem". I don't have cabel internet, I have Verizon wireless on my laptop and I don't have another computer. What do I need to get/ to do so netgear wzard will run? The Netgear box says I can connect my laptop, but gives no intructions as to how.

This is what you have to do:
First, disconnected the router form the PS3.
Connect the router to the incoming cable and setup from the laptop using the setup wizard.
Once you have connected to the IPS then disconnect the router, connected the PS3, then the router.
You should be able to connect to the Internet.
If you have any question related to this router, please consult your router hand book, or repost your question or e-mail me at frcs68@hotmail.com,
since this router has several feature, need to configure in order to secured the net work.

Almost every time we use our ps3 to stream netflix our internet connection (both land connection and wifi) gets interrupted. I reset the modem and everything is fine but this is a pain. Can you offer any...


Your PS3 and other device get same I.P. address. You need to give i.p address .

Go to your router addres
use 192.168.1.1
D-Link and Netgear routers-
192.168.0.1. Some US Robotics routers use 192.168.123.254, and some SMC routers use 192.168.2.1

Type this address into your internet browser then
if you know
By Default Type
Admin - admin
password - password(SOMETIME ONLY ENTER)

Now you see all options like as wireless setting, devices attached,

Follow this video If you have Netgear router . But if you don't have this router you can change setting same as this router.

Was the webkey for my ps3 and how much is a


There is no "webkey" for a Ps3, I have a slimline 250gb and there is no key that you need to know about. If anything you have a playstation network login with a password that you set yourself or when you set up a wireless connection you need your WPA or WPA2 password for the connection so that you can use your in home WiFi.

a decent router to buy are Linksys, Belkin, and Netgear. I have a Netgear or a Belkin and its just a average house wifi network router that cost me about $50 at Bestbuy.

If connect it just follow the directions and use the windows network wizard to setup a wifi network. just be sure to remember your password for your wifi!!

When its time to connect your Ps3 just go to settings>Network settings (very bottom) > then I think its Internet connection settings> Easy>Wired or Wireless> Scan> select the right one>name it or dont> put in the password> make sure everything is correct> test it> Then if your test succeeds you'll be ready to go!

How do u hook up ps3 online usin broadband card and laptop


Hi, The PS3 has a built in wireless card. You need a broadband internet connection& a wireless router for it to work this way.

What hardware do you have? You wont be able to connect the PS3 to the internet if you only have a laptop with a wireless broadband card. this is to be used for one PC/laptop at a time. Sorry

you could query this with Verizon though i am sure they would agree, that it is to be used for one PC/laptop to access the internet.

Thanks

PS3 internet connection problems


Hi there
do you run it wirelessly or with an ethnet cable? also have you tried enetering the settings manually from the wireless setup menu? entering the network key in capital letters etc? sky broadband seems to be very fickle. as i have no end of problems with it disconnecting and running very slowly.

Need help with wireless router and wireless verison card.


You need to bridge your modem first before you can use your netgear wireless router. You can reconfigure your netgear without bridging your modem and it will work, but the connection will not be as stable. You'll only need your Verizon password and username if your connection type is PPPoE. If your connection is DHCP, you don't need your username and password anymore, but you may have to ensure that your connection type inside the netgear router is set for DHCP as well. If you're a PPPoE, then you don't have to worry, even if you don't know your username and password, you can give Verizon a call and they will reset your password and give you your username after you've verified your information with them so you don't have to worry about anything. Whatever issue it is, they can help you with it. I suggest you have them bridge your modem first before using your netgear. If I know the brand and model number of your modem with verizon I can definitely give you instructions here on how to bridge your modem properly. Just let me know.

Setting up wireless connection


Make sure your Netgear router is working correctly and is allowing the PS3 access to it. I suggest visiting the Netgear website (www.netgear.com) and searching for the Router you have. Also try taking down any firewalls that are set up on your computer this will allow the PS3 unlimited access to the connection.

Just hooked up ps3 wirless , gaming is slow


if your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength.  However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there.  I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play.  I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect.  Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )
