    Are you trying to connect the PS3 to the router using a LAN cable or a wireless connection?

    Is the router a wireless router?

Are all the computers on you LAN running Vista? If so, (or even if not) which version?

Computer networks work best when the computers on those networks have a Network Operating System (NOS) installed, rather than a desktop operating system (OS). The best way to tell the difference is with the word PRO on the former or HOME on the latter.

Vista on home networks brings its own basket of troubles as well, particularly when connecting to non Vista computers.

Having laid all that out there for you, let's talk networks. You don't give many details, so, I'll make some assuptions based on new equipment (routers).

The best way to install a router, is to have the primary home computer connected via an ethernet cable. This allows the programming of the router to enable "cloning" of the MAC address. The reason to do this is so that the ISP (DSL or Cable company) will always appear that there is only one pc connected. This enhances your security.

Once that is done, the security feature can be adjusted on the router to either enable it, or not, and if you do (recommended) then write down your passphrase so that you can always remember it.

At this point, we are talking wireless, and if you are using wires, everything should already be functioning. With the wireless however, you will need to sit with your pc and tell the operating system to connect, then type in the security phrase when asked.

In XP, this is quite simple, by clicking on the wireless icon in the systray (down by the clock).

In Vista, however, you must first turn on network discovery. Right click on Networks, and choose properties. In the windows that opens, watch the information bar at the top, which should actually tell you network discover is not on, and to turn it on, click here.

Once the discovery is turned on, assuming that everything on your pc is functioning properly, you should see the network in the window, and be offered a chance to click on it to connect. Then type in your security phrase to connect to the LAN.

There is a lot going on with networks, and it is very difficult to help you set one up without a back and forth dialogue. I hope I helped you some.

good luck.

    This should be a much shorter note.

    With regard to the Vista machine, and not knowing where to plug in the cable, it can only go in one place. If you have more than one place on your pc for an ethernet cable (which looks like a phone wire with 8 wires in it instead of 4 or 2), then you have a server. Odds are, you do not have a server. The cost alone makes it unlikely.

    If you are (for reasons unknown to me) using USB to connect your PC to your network, well, stop. That's problematic at best. Additionally, every network I have worked on in 10 years that had USB connections had only one computer and it was only connected to the Internet.

    So, now on to your router. On the back of your router, somewhere, usually near where the power plugs in, you should find a small, recessed button. You'll need a paperclip or similar small pointing device to depress this button. This is the reset button, which puts the router back into factory status.

    If you start your network from the beginning, you are much more likely to achieve desired results. You may have to hold that button for 10 to 15 seconds, and it may need to be depressed when the unit is powered down (unplugged). Different manufacturers do things differently.

    After you have factory settings, start with the previous post and, as always,

    good luck

No, the usb port on the router is to connect it to a computer it can't be used with a printer. This printer only has a usb connection so it must be connected to a computer to be used.

Vpn error. 800

Resolutions: 1) if you have firewall, open TCP Port 1723, IP Protocol 47 (GRE). 2) make sure you can reach the VPN server by using ping. Sometimes, poor connection can cause this issue too. 3) You may need to updated firmware on a router or firewall if other OS (win9x/nt/me/w2k) works except XP. 4) The VPN server may not be able to get IP from DHCP for the VPN client. So, you may want to re-configure VPN host networking settings. For XP pro VPN host, go to the Properties of the VPN>Network, check Specify TCP/IP address and Allow calling computer to specify its own IP address, and uncheck Assign TCP/IP addresses automatically using DHCP. 5) Make sure no other secure software blocks your access, for example, if you use Norton secure software, you may need to add the remote client's IP so that the client can access. 6) If your VPN running on a Windows RRAS with NAT enabled, you may want to check the NAT settings. 7) If you can establish the VPN from the desktop at home but not from the laptop. Make sure no security software like Microsoft OneCare software that blocks the GRE.
