Cant get router to pick up with PS3

I cannot get my ps3 to pick up an internet signal from my belkin router.I have input all the correct numbers etc, opened up the firewall, put the ip address of the ps3 into the DMZ for the router and the ps3 still times out even though it recognizes the network name.Signal strength is 80%I have re-set the security, from 128 bit to 64 and then even disabled it entirely.It's driving me nuts

Network status can be checked in PS3 settings - it says whether the PS3 is connected to the network or not. If you see that it is OK, then you can check the router - it usually lists attached devices, also enable UPnP option if it is not ON yet.

If you have a problem with PS3 in wireless mode - try to connect it to the router with a Ethernet cable (configure PS3 network settings correspondingly) - if it works this way the problem most likely in wifi configuration either on the router or the PS3 side.

I hope this can help

Cant get wirless lap top pick up router


I know it sounds stupid but a lot of people just forget to turn on the wireless switch.

You may want to check first if the router is being picked up by other computers just to eliminate the possibility of a busted router. If no other computers can pick up your Router's signal then it's the router that you need to replace. If other computers can pick up your router's signal, then it's the computer's wireless card that's busted.

on your computer try to reinstall the device driver for wireless. try to connect the ethernet cable directly to the computer. if you have internet access, then most likely your netgear router needs to be reconfigured. you need to contact your internet service provider or router manufacturer for the reconfiguration of your router. mostly likely the security settings of the router needs to be changed.

If it shows you that you have an excellent signal, the problem is not the router. Unplug the power cable to the modem and plug it back in. If that doesn't work call your ISP.

My belkin modem/wireless router model number F5D6833-4 will not always connect to the internet by wireless but operates ok from hard wired lead direct form a port ?


belkins antenna are not very good, put the router on a cupboard where the signal is not blocked surrounding it's area, and remember, doors, walls, floors, windows etc all reduce the signal strength.

If the signal gets below 24 MBPS it may not be able to connect you to the net

It's the other way around - your PS3 and PC need to be configured to "see" your router. That is, your router's settings, specifically the SSID, channel #, and security options, need to be set correctly in the PS3 and PC.

First, I am going to assume that you are running a Windows-based operating system, and my ideas are going to be specifically oriented towards Windows XP. If you use Windows 2000 or Vista, the operations I describe will be slightly different, so ifyou're not real familiar with those operating systems, let me know andI can send you revised instructions.

If your router isbroadcasting its SSID (it's unique ID), which is an option in mostrouters, then your laptop should be capable of detecting it. You shouldhave an icon on your desktop named "My Network Places". Right-click onit and select PROPERTIES. A dialog box should pop-up that shows yournetwork connections. If your wireless connection is installed correctly, you should see i, possibly with a red "X"through it, which is OK. Right-click on it and select VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

Another dialog box should pop-up that will list all of the available wireless networksin your vicinity. You should be able to see your router in this listand it will likely have a name associated with the router'smanufacturer (e.g. USR, Netgear, Linksys, etc.). It should also be thenetwork that has the strongest signal since you are close to it. Youshould now be able to select it and then click on the CONNECT button.

Whetherthe connection process is completed successfully, you will see anotification of this. But before you do anything, bring up Internet Explorer and see if you can reach a website like www.cnn.com.

Hope this helps.
