Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, here's the situation. i have a PC and modem upstairs in a two story home. Downstairs i have a playstation 3, that i've wanted to get an internet connection on for a while. I've never had any problems with the internet connection on the PC. Yesterday i bought the DIR-628 router and set it up upstairs. After battling with the router and some DNS error problems, i finally was able to get a connection on the ps3. Now upstairs, i can't browse the internet at all because it tells me there isn't a connection! I'm not sure if it's just my PC not having wireless capabilities or what, but i'm very frustrated. In order to use the internet as I am now, i have to unplug the internet cable that runs from the PC to the router, into the modem, and i lose the connection downstairs. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. =D
I can not get a wireless connection to my PS3 from my D-Link DIR-628. For the past week I have been trying to get it working with no luck.
I was using a Thrustmaster FunAccess USB wireless router six months ago and I had no problem getting the PS3 to recognize it. Now, I am using a different computer (don't have the other one anymore) and the PS3 can't get a signal from the Thrustmaster. I have tried getting the IP info ( ipconfig/all) and entering every possible combination and it always ends up with a DNS error when I try to connect.
So, I figured I would buy a wireless router and see what happens. I ended up with the D-Link DIR-628. I'm having the same problems. I can connect to the internet on my computer but no luck with the PS3. There are so many options on the D-Link that I have no idea what numbers to enter where. Also, I don't know if my PC is the problem because I have tried setting up the network thru the wizard so many times that I'm sure something is not set right.
Any ideas where to go next?
Thanks for reading.
