For some reason I can't connect my ps3 wireless anymore. I play wireless everyday all the sudden it won't let me. I get wifi on my phone and laptop from the same router still but not my ps3. So i i...


The problem may be you need to go back into the router and configure some things for the PS3 (add to the MAC Filtering list if that is enabled, set up a custom IP address, port forwarding, etc.) and re-do your PS3's network settings to have as much info in manually as possible. You may also want to try and power cycle your internet modem and router. A lot of time just a refreshed connection will fix the issue.

How do i connect to my wireless thats in my home...says connect ehernet cable my desk top is in the other room i have wireless why do i need too connect with cable


You don't.

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and once you are prompted, select "Wireless" rather than ethernet. Ethernet is only when you have the cable plugged directly into the console.


I am always available for chat.

If nothing was changed in the router after connecting your PS3, possible that the devices are not syncing properly. Do a power cycle. Turn of all of your devices including the router and the modem. Wait for about a minute and turn them on in this order. Modem, wait for the lights to stabilize, then the rotuer, wait for power become solid gree. then turne the Laptop and PS3. See if this will help.

I want to connect my telstra wireless modem to my PS3


I assume the Telstra wireless modem is configured correctly and the computer/laptop can access the Internet wirelessly.
The PS3 needs to be configured with the Telstra modem's wireless settings so it can communicate with the wireless modem.
To configure the PS3 please follow these steps :-
1. Power up the PS3 and login then Select Network Settings and
press X
2. Select Easy then press > button
3. Select Wireless then press > button
4. Select Scan then press > button
5. Select the wireless modem you want to use, then press X button
6. Confirm the SSID for the wireless modem then press > button
7. Select the security settings (ie WAP, WPA - this is the in the wireless modem settings) then press > button
If there is no encryption I suggest you enable the encryption on the wireless modem, use passphrase to generate the encryption key.
Write down this encryption key, you will need this key for your computers and PS3.
8. Enter the WEP or WPA encryption key (from the wireless modem) then press > button
9. Check the settings then press X button

PS3 and Netgear WGR614 V7 Router


Basically the PS3 wireless settings needs to be configures with the Netgear wireless router settings.
To test if the modem is connects to the Internet, connect a computer into the modem, if it works then the modem is configured correctly. If it doesn't work, then contact your ISP and get them to test your modem connection.
For details on how to configure the PS3 click on the WEB link :-

Im trying to connect my ps3 to my wireless router. it has recently stopped working. is there anything i can do?


Sure! Try this:
1 Turn your network off. Modem router, computer, printers etc. turn them off.
2. Leaving the wireless router connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (modem power off) , turn your wifi router on and let it cycle up.
3. After the router is cycled up, turn power on to your modem , leaving the ethernet cable connected to the wifi router's internet port. Let the modem cycle up .
4. After this, turn on all computers, routers and etc... no particular order.
This should allow your modem to find the wifi router and direct it to your computer via wifi or ethernet..

I have a cable modem with mediacom and a netgear g5608 router. i tried to hook up my computer, ps3, and xbox 360 but cannot get connected . whats the problem?


hi there! if your trying to hook up your cable modem to your netgear g5608 wireless router, First you need to clone the mac address of your network interface card to your wireless router in order the cable modem will communicate with the router. most cable modem reg the mac address of the nic of your computer.. Once your done of cloning the mac address to your router save the settings and turn off the computer, router and the cable modem.. turn on the cable modem first after 15secs then wait all the lights lit and turn on the router wait all the lights lit and the computer. your will notice that all your light is lit on the router and try to pull up the browser.. Now if you want to connect your ps3 and your xbox 360.. once your wired computer can access the internet, you will not have a problem connecting your wireless devices, you just need to setup your ps3 and xbox360 to connect and use the automatic ip address detect from your wireless devices.. you could either use static ip address and auto detect that your router will assign to your wireless devices.. if you still have any problem connecting your devices.. please feel free to call email me at dennis.ordinante@gmail.com or you can reach me at +09157222160.. good lick!!
