I had my PS3 for 3 weeks and everything was going good. I was using wireless connection which worked good, but was was a bit choppy (well that was because are wireless router isn't strong). I left for holiday for a week. No-one was in the house. I come back- and no i haven't been buglared- and immediatly start playing on my PS3. But the first thing I notice is that the controller takes a while to connect up to the PS3. I put that down to it taking a couple of hits on the head. But then my network doesn't work out all. It turns out the my PS3 isn't even detecing other acess points at all. I try again still not dectecing acess points. I try using an Ethernet cable a week later, but its saying the Ethernet cable ain't in. I go over everything tons of times, but the connection is still not working.I took care of my PS3 really well, i really don't no what went wrong with it. PLEASE HELP.

What are specifications you are using for your wireless network? B, G or N, WEP or WPA-1 or 2 encryption, etc. If everything was working fine at the beginning and no one has changed any of the network settings then that indicates an issue on the laptop. You can try to reinstall the driver by downloading it from the Acer website as a Windows Update could have installed an 'updated' driver that doesn't work properly.
I had the same problem, and my issue was the printer. Every time i connected the printer using a wireless scan on the printer to connect to the router, it would kick my laptop out. Try disconnecting the printer and rebooting the router(Do this first, start it up and then do the next step with the printer off if you're still having problems). Do a factory reset on the router as well, but you have to set everything up again(i did that a couple of times). Hold reset button for ten seconds then let it reboot if you want to go that route. Once you reboot the router(try the simple boot first), leave the printer off and try and run your mac and ipad2 for a couple of hours and see if they stay connected and there are no interruptions. If they still do the same, then do a factory reset like noted above and try again. If they work ok, then the printer is conflicting with your other devices. The way i fixed mine was to connect my printer to the router using the manual method. You have to go to the dlink administrator login, go to setup, click wireless settings, then click add wireless device with WPS, click on manual, then go to your printer and go to wireless settings, click on manaul connection and it should give you a pin number. Now hit start scan on dlink page and then go on wireless printer and have them pair up. It's a lot, but it worked for me and hopefully it works for you. good luck
how to connect the 360 to the Live
network. Before you do anything you are going to need to decide
how you plan on connecting the bad boy. The 360 supports both wired and
wireless connections. In order to use a wireless connection you will
need the Xbox 360 Wireless adapter. Personally I find the wireless
connection to be a bit too temperamental for my liking so I go with a
wired connection via a router, but not everyone has the same wireless
experience. To set up the connection via a router unplug the
router and the modem and turn off the 360. Connect an Ethernet cable to
one of the out ports of the preexisting router then connect the cord to
the back of your 360. Plug everything back in and turn and give the
modem and router about 3 minutes to reboot. Once you have given
everything a few minutes to reboot you can turn the 360 back on. If you
have already set up a gamer profile you will see the Xbox Live screen.
If you have not set up an account you will be prompted to do so. All you
need to do is follow the on screen instructions. It is a pretty cut and
dry process and should not take more than 10 minutes of your time.
You did mention that it was working fine for several weeks suddenly your wireless computers stopped functioning and your getting a message that the security key in incorrect. This only means that its either your entering the wrong encryption key or someone changed the previous security key to something else. By the way what type of wireless security did you configured on the router initially was it WEP or WPA, if its WEP(64 or 128 bit) and your using a bulit-in wireless adapter on your laptop you need the default WEP key because the passphrase only works with a Netgear WLAN Utility.
Know if your having difficulties accessing the setup page of the router you may need to check on your browser settings, turn off the pop up blocker and firewall temporarily, also try another computer. Now if all fails you may need to press that reset button on your router and set it up again.
Best results would be to install everything from a HARD wire connection. Wireless, can drop bits of data depending on interference. I would definately use the ethernet to install everything and then try the wireless.
problem a: could just be your isp is slow therefore when you share the connection it is slow when both pc are connected. Also it could be that your firmware on the router is outdated and creates problems for you. Try updating to the latest firmware go to www.dlink.com and select your router. In addition, i find with dlink if you use their software to control your wireless adapter you get better performance than if you use windows default software.
problem b. Youa re right wep security creates overhead due to encryption will always be slower than no encryption. If you are just worried about people stealing your internet access then i suggest you use unsecure connections but restrict access to the router by mac address. WEP can be hacked easily anyway.
problem c: use port forwarding for your torrent to increase speed. chances are your firewall and antivirus scans everything thus slowing down your connections.
