do you run it wirelessly or with an ethnet cable? also have you tried enetering the settings manually from the wireless setup menu? entering the network key in capital letters etc? sky broadband seems to be very fickle. as i have no end of problems with it disconnecting and running very slowly.
Roadrunner is broadband, so you have a cable modem, and personally, I have NEVER seen one with wireless capability. You need to go get a wireless router and connect it between the modem, and your computer... follow the set up protocols for the router, and enable WEP encryption. After you have the router up and running, configure your PS3 to the router using its setup proceedures.
After you get the router and PS3 configured, go back into the router configuration, and set your router up to ONLY accept connections from the mac address of the PS3 (find the mac address by going into "network settings" and then "settings and connection status list") and turn off the SSID broadcast, you don't need it running once the PS3 knows the router is their, and by taking these two steps, you significantly increase the security of your network.
Unfortunately the PS3 will not be recieving internet through this device, the USB connectors are set up to only work with PC or MAC specifically for that reason that gamers cannot use their Xbox or Playstation, and that is because Verizon offers a Wireless router cell phone data device which costs almost a thousand dollars, definately not worth it.
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
Dial up is NOT recommended. I honestly do not think it would even work. DSL and broadband work great. If you get DSL or broadband you would need your original ethernet cord and hook up the PS3 from your router. If you go wireless then you would need a wireless router.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
From the sounds of it your using a wireless connection? when you use the auto connect and it fails what does it say in the connection status in internet options? what is your signal strength? mine wouldnt work if it was less than 90%. i sorted this by moving my wireless box to the top hall so connection is 100% and i have no problems. please feel free to ask any questions.
