a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

Do an internet connection test. Your NAT type should be either 1 or 2. If not then there are some restricted ports on your router.
I find that putting your PS3 in your router's DMZ (demilitarized zone), solves all connection problems.

sorry to say but its a job for sony, call them up, there numbers on the website explain the probs your having and they will either arrange for a replacement or to repair yours. The problem your having is ti do with one of the recenct updates online. And its all sonys fault!! There replacement service is normally very good. Hope this helps

I'm afraid your PS3 is dead. It's very rare, it happened to me too. Nobody's sure why it happens, but it just stops reading any disks at all, even though it retains all other functionality.
You've got to take it back to wherever you bought it with a reciept and they can either replace it or send it off to Sony for it to be fixed.

SOURCE: PS3 can't detect access point
i have some solutions..
1. if there's lots of walls between the router and your ps3 it may not detect the signal. i had a very weak signal until i moved some stuff around.
2. you can manually type in your wireless name and i think it should at least reconize it, and maybe connect.
3. make sure theres no firewalls or anything to block other connections from entering your signal.
thats all i can say, sorry im not a tech guy-only 17!
