Re: trying to get online but cant
You have to make sure that the router isn't still loading, to unload it you need to hook the internet to a local computer in your house. Just get on any website and then hook it up to your PS3 and it should work.

If you mean wireless internet
1 Make sure your router is on
2 Make sure your WIRELESS COMPATIBLE ROUTER is plugged into your modem
3 If so reset it
4 Make sure your wii isn't more that 700 to 800 ft(Its probaly not)
5 Change your security settings to WPA, or TKSP, or TKSP-WPA
6 If that fails, try using a wired connection. Plug one end of an ethernet cable into your wii, the other into a wall jack or IF AVAILABLE A ROUTER OR MODEM
Thank you for your time, good luck and I hope this helps
The PS3 browser doesn't work so well with that kind of stuff. You generally do all the authentication during the setup with your wirless router.
Try changing your password, using a different brand of routers, or simply change your security type like TSPK-WEP, or plain TSPK
The problem lies in the wireless connection. Either the wireless adapter on the game console, or with your wireless router. Although wireless internet makes it easier to get online and play, it is actually the worst choice for online gaming. this is due to the lag time in the signal relay to the router. Wired internet is the best choice for online gaming. If you can hook your console up to a wired internet connection, then I suggest you do that.
if your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength. However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there. I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play. I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect. Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )
