First thing to check is if there is a firmware upgrade for your router.

Afterwards and depending on your model, you can also increase the signal power on your router.

Or you can try changing the channel from 1-11 to see which one works best.

You can also:

move the PS3 or router closer together
use a wired connection
get a stronger router
etc.etc.

Hope this helps.

    You change the wireless channel on the router, not the PS3.

    Sometimes the channel you're using is already cluttered by other wireless routers in your area, microwaves, radios, wireless phones, etc. etc.

    It's usually not an issue but it's easy to change channels back and forth so we might as well give it a shot.

My ps3 wont connect to my friends


The problem is your internet is not good enough to host or join their game. There is probably some type of connection problem or their game is full. Hope this helps.

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

Can't even connect to "setup assistant"


it sounds like you need to keep using your usb modem to connect to the internet. then setup internet sharing on the computer and connect the wireless router to the network plug on the computer.....

then basically you are sharing the internet to the plug on the back of the pc into the router and then wirelessly out to the network and PS3

Worked Fine and then my computer did not recive a wireless connection, and nao cant play my 360 :[


make sure the wireless part of the router is working fine by trying a computer to connect wirelessly to the router. if it connected fine then it is a matter of matching the wireless settings of the router and the xbox in order for them to synchronize properly.

My PSP online play


If you can play at your brother's house, and your router does not work, and your router is set up correctly, then it IS your router, some of which i've had issues with in the past are just horrible and dont work with certain connections.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
