    Try connecting a hard line to PS3 and see if that is able to get your PS3 working online. If it does work, then it might be a signal problem (depending on what kind of wireless router you have and how far it is in comparison to the ps3). If the hard line doesn't work, then its a settings problem that you'll have to go through the manual install from the ps3 side.

    Most cases, it is a weak signal coming from the router itself. Most b and g type wireless routers are not sufficient if it is located in another room. My ps3 is literally 10 feet away from my router but needs to go through a wall. Signal strength was not sufficient to keep the signal coming in. Decided to just keep the hard line as you get constant feed without any delay or disconnect.

    Maybe you should try the manual option, if your network requires a HEX key, enter in that along with your network name.

I try to plug in my belkin 54 wireless usb thing into my xbox 360 and my xbox doesnt even recognize that it is in there and i dont know where to start but i would like to be able to play games online and...


Hi,

XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless

All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online

alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key

Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
It will work

Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable

(However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)

Is there any other computer which is able to go online ?
If this is the only computer then you will need to check the Internet through the modem.
Your computer should be able to go online when connected to the modem.
If not online then you should have user name and password for the ISP.

I have switched internet to at&t dsl and now when i hook up wireless router i cannot connect to the internet can connect with only modem connected but not with both wirelss router and modem connected


hi there,
when you go through a router with dsl, your router stores your sign on and password. since you have a new providor, you need to get on your router's settings page through your browser, and change your settings to what at&t gave you. what did you have before-- cable internet? dial up? cable does not require an ID + password at all, your router will just pick it up. DSL requires that you tell the router what your sign on is... to get to your linksys login page, open your browswer and go to

http://192.168.1.1/

you have to 1st sign on to control your router-- usually it's username "admin" and no passwork... I hope you remember it!

second, the main screen, you need to punch in your AT&T info-- username and password. I assume it's PPPOE (PPP over ethernet)

hit save, and after it confirms, reboot your router (unplug for a minute) and your computer.

Changing from DSL to Road Runner Turbo


I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....

If your router is a BEFSR41 it does not have a wireless option on it. It is just a wired cable/dsl router.

Hi GameGirl31,

In order for you to go on-line with the PS3, you will first need either broad band or DSL Internet connection. Once you have that, all you will need to buy then is a wireless router. You will need to hookup the wireless router to your broad band or DSL modem. Once you have done this, you have two option on how to get on-line. You can hard-wire your PS3 to the wireless modem or you can use the blue tooth wireless net-card that is already built into your PS3 to go on-line.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

No connection trough router


Hi Thumbsucker,

Oftentimes with Netgear routers, before an Internet connection can be established, you'll need to run the Wizard setup routine on the router itself. Many other manufacturers don't require this, but if you're connecting to a PPPoE connection (such as DSL) then the Netgear requires said basic setup.

On the bottom of the router itself you'll see some information. It'll tell you the default IP address (such as 192.168.0.1) and a basic username and password (the default for most Netgear routers is admin for the username and password for the password). Plug your computer into one of the four switch ports on the router (not the uplink/Internet port) and type in the IP address of the router (again, such as 192.168.0.1) into your Web Browser (such as Internet Explorer). If it asks for a username/password then punch in the info given on the bottom of the router. At that point you should be able to answer the basic questions to get you online.

There is a chance that your modem and your router have the same IP address; in that case, you'll need to manually change the IP address on the router.

If by chance you can't get into the router via the information provided on the bottom of the device, take a paper clip and, with the router powered up, hold in the reset button for 30 full seconds. This will reset the device to its default factory settings.
