Cant connect to my router through laptops built in wireless/ps3
I recently got a new laptop(runs vista, not sure if that's important or not) and tried to connect to my wireless network via the laptops built in wireless. For some reason it wouldn't connect. I used WEP on my network, and I have made sure that the password i entered on the laptop is the correct one.
However, when I plug in my laptop to my Buffalow wireless device via an ethernet cord to connect to the d-link it works just fine.
I recently also just uninstalled and reinstalled network magic from the computer the D-link is connected to, and made a new wireless network with no security to see if that would work, but my laptop still recognizes my network as having security when I search for wireless networks. Any idea how i can connect to my network with my laptops built in wireless would be much appreciated. Thank you.

there is already a built in wireless device for the internet. id say its not working because you need to put your I.P adress, subnet mask, router and DNS numbers into playstation. go to settings on ps3. then network settings. manually install all these numbers. you should be able to get them off your laptop or computer when its connected to the internet. if you cant ring your internet provider to grt them.
I'm assuming that your Vista has a built-in wireless.. If so, the first thing you need to check is if the wireless function is turned on (usually by pushing Fn + F2. Check from your laptop manufacturer). Then follow these instructions: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/88ea056e-664a-4c3d-b977-13f79cb4dedb1033.mspx
You may want to double-check if the wireless adapter on your laptop is enabled. If it is enabled, try to view the available wireless networks on your wireless connection and select the name of your wireless network. You may also want to check your wireless router if there is a wireless security enabled. It is important that you know the wireless settings on your wireless router to make sure that the wireless adapater settings on your laptop match the settings on the wireless router.
you could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it. MY Components: -Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G). -Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop) -Linksys Wireless G/B Router -G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and -Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer
At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help? -When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks
The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.
When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.
