1. Before beginning the installation process, ensure all cables and leads are properly fitted to their appropriate ports within the modem/router/console.
2. You will need to complete a standard configuration test without manually entering any details. This can be done by going to 'Settings' on the xmb then scroll down to 'Network Settings', then select 'internet connection settings'. If unsure of any questions asked during the process then leave as default. All answers should be ' Easy' and 'Automatic' when you initially attempt the connection setup.
3. For ‘WLAN Settings’, select ‘Scan’ – a list of wireless networks will be displayed each with an ‘SSID’ (Name given to the Network), 'Security' (WEP, WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES)) and 'Signal Strength' value. The SSID will most likely be a modem default value such as 'belkin54g'.
4. Select your wireless connection displayed by pressing 'X'. You will be prompted for your SSID. Scroll right to display 'WLAN Security Setting’' which should be set as a result of the scan, for example: Scan result showed Security of the network having a ‘WEP’ key (password for the network set by the admin generally). If so you will need to select ‘WEP’ and continue entering the WEP key of the network.
5. Continue to ‘Address Settings’ where the Option ‘Easy’ is chosen after which it will ‘Check Network Settings’ and will display your chosen settings.
6. Press ‘X’ to save Settings and then perform a Connection Test.
7. If you succeed in obtaining an IP Address, connecting to the internet, PS Network etc – it is advised that you download the latest software update if necessary. If you haven't done so, you can now Sign Up to the PS Network.

You need to connect the ps3 to the wireless router you use the same ssid on all devices that connect into the router. I think thats where your settings are wrong.

Wireless Connection


The WPA code is the password to access the router's network, so it can use your internet connection. As long as the Xbox has both the SSID and the WPA password, it can access the internet through the router.

The SSID ( Chris_PC_Network ) is mostly irrelevant to the network connection, and is purely aesthetical. Its only use is to help users distinguish between different networks (so you don't use a neighbor's network or vice versa).

Playstation3 can,t pickup ip address


If you have your internet to your computer and the PS3 you need a router to provide an IP for both. Otherwise your ISP will only provide an IP for what ever was hooked up first most of the time. If this is the case try only the PS3 and do the auto setup. Linksys is a simple router with great support. If there is already a router hooked up please clarify.

Netgear range max cant be found by ps3 please help


1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences

Suggestion: Move your router. Your PC 3 appears to be in a 'dead zone' so to speak.

Connect ps3 wirelees to internet


On your PS3, do the following:

- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless

Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.

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.

Hope that helps!

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network


It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?
