PS3 and thompson ST585v6

Hi my son has a PS3 and has been trying to play online with his friends. We have wirleless broadband through the Thompson ST585v6. If we turn the router off at night ( to save electricity!) it takes ages for him to be able to connect to the internet, if at all. Also on the front of the router box the WLAN light is permanently red.
Any suggestions?
Thanks :-)

So the WLAN is red, it means that there's no wireless connection from your router.

I might advise you to reconfigure the RCA on the wireless settings.

for the PS 3 there are port that you can gather with your PS 3 manufacturer to open on the router, it might help the PS 3 to go online simultaneously.

    try to verify the Internet connection from your ISP, maybe it is not communicating properly. or try to reset your modem for 15 seconds and the lights again.

If you have forgotten your password all you have left to do is to reset the device back to factory default. That's usually done by taking a pin and poking a hole in the back labeled 'Reset' for anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds.

Mac and Thompson router

I've run into cable modems that don't like to use ethernet sometimes. In cases like this, I have to do a soft reset of the modem and things usually work again.

To do a soft reset, do the following:
  1. pull the power cord from the modem
  2. count to 5
  3. hold down the power button on the modem
  4. plug back in the power
  5. count to 30 while holding the power button (the modem should be blinking a lot)
  6. release the power button and see what happens.
