Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have Linksys WRT300N, and currently there are multiple devices connected to it and they all work great (this laptop, two phones, a smart TV, and an iPad) and connected with ease. However my PS3 will not, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. I've tried different settings on both router and PS3, it can detect the network and has 100% signal strength. It just times out trying to exchange the key info (WPA). Please, any help would be great.
For instructions on setting up the PS3, Xbox, or Wii, for a wireless/Internet connection. please click on this link :- http://fixhomenetwork.com/xbox-play-station-wii.php

Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm

Try these steps:
1. First of all connect your PC Directly with Modem & check if you're able to go online or not.
2. If No , then contact your ISP.
3. If yes ,Disconnect CAT5 cable coming out of Modem from PC & connect into WAN port (on rear panel you'll find it) of Linksys WRT300N Router , After that on rear panel you'll find small hole with a Reset button inside it. Use needle or pen to press it quiet hard for 1 minutes continuosly, This'll restore all default settings.
4. After that give static IP - 192.168.1.2 to your PC ,subnet mask 255.255.255.0 ,default gateway - 192.168.1.1 & connect your PC directly with a LAN port on the back side of Router.
5. After that type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your explorer & login window will come , type username = admin & leave password field blank, then you'll get Blue coloured Router configuration page, From this page you can configure your Router.
6.Now if your Internet connection is Cable then default setting will work for you, However for DSL connection ,on this page you'll find internet connection type - selectiondrop down box - select PPPoE into it for DSL connection.
7. After that restart your computer & you should be able to go online.

Try logging into the router to see whether the Wireless MAC Filter is Enabled. Since you already know that the DHCP limit is set to 50, I presume you've already logged into the router successfully. The Wireless MAC Filter is on the Wireless tab (the second tab, next to Setup), and is the third parameter from the left.
If the filter is enabled, simply add the MAC ID of each of your devices to Permit list (this won't affect your friends' use of the router).
If both of their devices work, and none of your devices work, then the odds are pretty good that the MAC ID Filter is the culprit. I hope this helps - please let know if I can be of any further assistance.

NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.
Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor and high up in the room.
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

What I would recommend, would be to give the router a factory reset. To do so, you'll need a paper clip first. On the back of the router, you should see a pinhole-sized rubber nub of a button labeled reset. To reset, unplug the router from power, then press and hold that little reset button in, and plug the router back into power (you might have to do some nifty acrobatics for this one, or get a friend to give you a hand). Keep holding the reset button in for about 20 seconds, and let go. If I recall, you probably won't see any real indication on the router itself that it worked, however, you should be able to log back into the router manually, and set your connections back up again, in the event that the settings may have become corrupted somehow. If this doesn't work though, then there may be further problems, in which case, you may need to get onto Linksys' website, and download the most recent firmware for your model of router, and then try setting it up again. If that doesn't work, then the router may be experiencing some kind of hardware failure, in which case, if you are within the manufacturer's warranty, contact Linksys for repair or replacement (or through your place of purchase). If you are not within warranty, then buying a new replacement router may be your only other option. Hope this helps!!
