If your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength.  However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there.  I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play.  I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect.  Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )

Can t get on line on my ps3


The PS3 is plug n play and if your router is as well then it will configure the firewall automagically. However, often the older routers just don't play well together. You need to open up ports manually and configure the router and firewall separately for each game you want to play. Each game has specific TCP and UDP ports that need to be opened up to allow access. Its not a trivial exercise. You need to statically assign an I{P address to the PS3 and direct traffic from the router to the PS3 IP address for those games you want through. Each game has the details on which ports to open on the website or in the instructions. Lots of luck

I have a wireless router in my bedroom where the internet comes into my house. My sons got a PS3 and have hooked it up, it is now saying the ethernet cord in not connected. What is this and how do I fix...


Check that ethernet cord is plugged in correctly to router.Ethernet cord looks like a telephone cord.
must be in the lan port of router.

You need to have a ethernet cable going from the back of the ps3 to your router in 1 of the ports.

or ps3 needs a wireless adaptor to pick up the wirless signal from the router.

Playing Online Games Behind The Router

A router uses a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or internet traffic from accessing your private local area network (LAN). If your game console, such as Playstation is behind the router, you will need to configure routers Port Forwarding feature in order to play online games.

Note: You will need to get the ports and service type for your games. This is usually available from the games website.

Steps how to configure router to play online games:
  1. Open a browser and type in the following URL: http://www.routerlogin.com or http://192.168.1.1 (depending on the model number of the router)
  2. Type the Username as admin and the Password as password and click OK.
  3. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced menu.
  4. Then click on Add Custom Service
5. Under Service Name, type the name of the game.
  • Select the Service Type from the drop down menu (depending on the game).
  • Type the Starting Port and Ending Port numbers (depending on the game).
  • Type the IP address of your PlayStation in the Server IP Address box and click Apply.
  • Click on WAN Setup under ADVANCED menu.
    • Check the Disable SPI firewall box
    • Change MTU size from 1500 (which is the default) to 1300 and click Apply.
    Now the Playstation is ready to use.

    I hope this helps...

    Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


    I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

    Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

    My sister has a Motorola SP4200 router with a Netgear WPN824v2 wireless router/accesspoint/switch connected to it. Previously she had the SP4200 connected to port 1 (not WAN) port on the Netgear as it is...


    it might be asking for a WEP password in order for you to use it which is on the botom of the router or the game sistem is the one causing the trouble and should not be conected to any wirless or eathernet internet routers.

    PS3 wireless internet problems


    It sounds like a defective wireless antenna. Connect your PS3 via a long network cable and see if you can get online. If you can, the problem is a defective antenna.

    Assuming you purchased the PS3 from a store and have the reciept, you should be able to get it swapped or fixed via warranty.

    Good luck and take care,
