Question about Linksys WRT54G3G Wireless Router (WRT54G3G-ST)

Open Question

I am looking to connect to the internet on my ps3 and xbox360

What I have is a Sprint phone, with phone as modem capabilities.
What I am looking to do is find out if using a Linksys Wireless-G router for Sprint Moblie Broadband [Model: WRT54G3G] with the phone as modem to produce a connection at a speed 1mg or + that is compatible with my 360 and Ps3. I know that by choosing a router that is supported by both the PS3 and 360 and by having a phone compatible with that router as well I should be able to do this but it also has to run at a minimum of 1mg. Help?

SOURCE: Time Warner Cable won't identify Linksys WRV54G wireless router

If you can connect directly via your modem, then the line up to your house is fine. So no problem with your ISP.

Since you changed from cable to DSL, you might have to re-configure your router.
Open a web browser, type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and log on to the web based router configuration page. (The default values are "admin" for username and "admin" for password)
Go to "Setup", choose "Basic" and review the entries there. You want to see it configured for "PPPoE".

Some DSL-based ISPs use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections. If you are connected to the Internet through a DSL line, check with your ISP to see if they use PPPoE.
If they do, you will have to enable PPPoE.
User Name and Password: enter the User Name and Password provided by your ISP.

Connect on Demand: Max Idle Time. You can configure the Router to cut the Internet connection after it has been inactive for a specified period of time (Max Idle Time). If your Internet connection has been terminated due to inactivity, Connect on Demand enables the router to automatically re-establish your connection as soon as you attempt to access the Internet again.
If you wish to activate Connect on Demand, click the radio button.

In the Max Idle Time field, enter the number of minutes you want to have elapsed before your Internet connection terminates.
Keep Alive Option: Redial Period. If you select this option, the router will periodically check your Internet connection. If you are disconnected, then the Router will automatically re-establish your connection. To use this option, click the radio button next to Keep Alive.
In the Redial Period field, you specify how often you want the Router to check the Internet connection. The default Redial Period is 30 seconds.
When you have finished making changes to the screen, click the Save Settings button to save the changes, or click the Cancel Changes button to undo your changes.

(This info is from the Linksys manual)

I am tryn to sign in,through the PS3 onto my internet. how do I get connectivity?


If you are trying to connect via a wired connection you should be able to just plug in an ethernet cable from your router/modem straight to the PS3 and it should connect.

If you are trying to connect to the internet via the PS3's built in wireless capabilities head under network settings via the XMB and scan for nearby wireless connections. Once it has found yours select it and enter your password if needed.

Modem is plugged directly into laptop but still not able to surf net. when looking at network connections it says it is connected but there is no sign of connection meaning the laptop cannot browse...


Re-boot your modem. unplug it wait about 10-15 seconds, plug it back in and it should get your laptop's address. Did you have the modem connected to another device? for example a Desktop pc or a xbox360 or ps3. if you did, everytime you switch devices, you need to re-boot your modem.

Can you connect your internet from the samsung instinct phone to the ps3?


If you have a phone as modem plan sure you can, If you have the Instinct I am asuming that you are w/ Sprint. If so and you have unlimited data plan go buy a 3G to broadband wireless router. I suggest the Cradlepoint 350 or better, Best Buy sells them for about $100. It will convert your 3G signal and then your PS3 will be able to see the network, set it up with either no passcode or use the WPA/TKIP for encryption. It works fine, I have the HTC Touch Pro and it works perfectly, its easier if you have a Windows based phone though.

Connect my ps3 to my mobile phone for internet access


You'll have to connect your computer to the Internet and then share that internet from the computer to the PS3. Hopefully this will get you started. You can google for guides. It's not hard but it will be a pain that first initial time.

Hooking up wireless router to ps3 to get internet thru TV


i believe what you mean is your connection to your ps3 not on your tv

actually i think ps3 has a built in wireless adapter unlike xbox360

things to remember:

-make sure that you use compatible routers

-distance of wireless router from ps3 may affect the signal of internet

-actually, some devices like microwave or chordless phone may also interfere with youre connection

-if you are using a direct modem connection, you may need to call your isp to check if the firmware of your modem is up to date

-there is more to life than games so try to do some sports if you are not able to connect ^_^


hope it helps

The PS3 has built in network capabilities, WIFI (wireless), for which you need a wireless router, or wired, where you need an ethernet cable and a router OR just a modem if you don't want anything else connected to the internet at the same time.

Getting a Sprint connection on my Nokia N800 tablet


You must use the N800 connection manager and connect to your phone with bluetooth.
You need to pair the two devices.
then, you must connect your phone to a GPRS and use your N800 to browse the internet.
