hi, there is nothing to worry..... all ya have to do is , ya need to try to connect with the unsecured wireless connection in order to check the functionality of the wirelees part. If it allows ya to connect, then ya need to log into the wless routers configuration page and go into the security option and choose the security--WEP(64 or 128 BIT)and make a note of the key which gets generated in the key coulmns, any one key- preferably the first key and save the settings. n when ya' try to connect with wless computer it will ask ya the security key , plz enter the same key on yor wless comp- the same key which ya ve noted down. "confirm the key"- same key. and it will show ya a staus "wless is now connected".

The most likely answer is that you have an access control list (MAC Address filtering list) set up on your router and have not added your Mac's MAC, also called your Airport ID to the list but there are other possible causes.
Double check that you do not need to add your MAC address to the list, that you did save changes when you removed security from your router and that your PC can still connect.
The hardest part of moving from PC to Mac is learning to trust your computer to do things for you, with Microsoft's OS's you don't just trust the automated set-up wizards because even in the rare circumstance that the wizard actually works you invariably have to finish the settings manually.
With your Mac the exact opposite is true, if you try to do everything manually it'll invariably mess things up, where as using the wizards and trusting the computer to manage things on it's own reaps obvious rewards.
If Airport set-up wizard is asking for a WEP key and leaving the field blank doesn't work you can be comfortably sure that the router has a key set up on it. (BTW: Always be mindful of the fact that WEP is pointless, even 128bit.)
Check that your router has not been hijacked and that you have indeed removed the security from your router, is it possible that you have a WPA key set up on the router? Unlike WEP, WPA and especially WPA2 actually secure your network (in as much as is possible).
Another major cause of connectivity issues for new Mac users is having Norton Internet security installed, for a PC user the idea of not having full-on paranoid security installed is anathema, the idea that your Mac's inbuilt firewall alone is plenty of protection (at time of writing) Other than that ClamXav antivirus will protect your Mac form any viruses that may appear in future. Norton Internet security for Mac is often pushed on buyers by stores that don't know any better, to be honest Norton Internet security for Mac is an awful lot of hassle and performance loss for little or no advantage.
Using a Mac is different to using a PC but once you have got used to using a Mac you will not be able to change back, once you have learned to trust your Mac to do things for you, you will find Windows (any version) to be painfully time consuming, unstable and fiddly to use.
Post back if you are still having problems. :)

In the 60gig ps3 it was the CWI-001 board located under the sd mini sd/ cf / m pro board and above the usbs. I replaced mine and controllers, wired and wireless Internet work fine.
That fixed my problem I hope that this helps. Good luck

PICK A ROUTER - There are tons of wireless routers to choose from. Depending on how big your house or office you might have to purchase multiple routers. The current standard in wireless technology is known as Wireless G. It is rated at a maximum speed of 54Mbps with a radius range of approximately 75'. This is most suitable for small homes or offices. Other types include Wireless A, B, and N and all vary in bandwidth and range. Do some more research and find out what might be suitable for your needs.

Your primary router can be any brand of router - whatever you already have, for example. The DD-WRT firmware with wireless bridge mode need only be installed on the secondary router you're turning into a client adapter (we'll call it the "client router").
This tutorial assumes that your primary router is, like most routers, assigning IP addresses by DHCP. Without DHCP enabled, your bridged peripherals may not be able to get onto the network.
Take note of any wireless security currently enabled on your primary router. If you are using WEP, note your passphrase and key length (64-bit, 128-bit, etc.). If using WPA or WPA2, note your passphrase. Later, you'll need to input these on the secondary router.
You will need to access the administration interface of the secondary router, your DD-WRT router. Obviously, you can't launch a web browser from your printer. For temporary setup purposes, you need to connect a wired PC to the secondary router. The easiest way is to grab a laptop computer, temporarily disable any wireless network it has, and connect it via Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. Do not connect it to the WAN, sometimes labeled "Internet" port, which can remain empty.
Assuming your DD-WRT is set to factory defaults, its IP address is 192.168.1.1. We are going to disable its DHCP server, so you should manually configure an IP address for your temporary PC. A good choice would be 192.168.1.2.
Step 1. To manually configure your IP address in Windows XP, click to Control Panel/Network Connections/Local Area Connection/Properties. Scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. Now click Use the Following IP Address and enter 192.168.1.2 as the IP,
255.255.255.0 as the Subnet Mask, and 192.168.1.1 as the Default Gateway.
As for Windows
, enter the IP address 192.168.1.1, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, and Router 192.168.1.1. Click "Apply Now" to save the changes.
Step 2. Open a browser on your PC and connect to the DD-WRT router -- its default address is http://192.168.1.1. The default login is root and password is admin. Of course, you should change these. You probably won't, but our lawyers require us to say that.
Step 3. Click Setup/Basic Setup. Scroll down to Network Address Server Settings (DHCP). Click to disable DHCP. This will prevent the bridged router from assigning addresses, which will be the job of your primary router.
Step 4. Click Wireless/Basic Settings. For Wireless Mode select "Client Bridge." Set Wireless Network Mode to match your primary router - "mixed" is the safe default, unless your primary router is set exclusively to b or g mode.
Step 5. Click Wireless/Wireless Security. For Security Mode, select the appropriate choice that matches your primary router - either none, WEP, WPA or WPA2. In this example, our primary router uses WPA security. The algorithm is set to "TKIP" on both routers, and we've entered our shared key.
Step 6. Click Status/Wireless. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and you'll see a button labeled "Site Survey." You now need to associate this router to your primary router to create the bridge.
Click the Site Survey button, and a window pops up showing available wireless networks.
In our setup, one wireless network with SSID bordella is available. That is our primary router. Click the Join button to create the association.
DD-WRT will let you know that you've successfully joined the network.
Step 7. You've now completed the bridge.
To test it, you need to receive an IP address from your primary router. Revisit Step 1 and set your IP address back to automatic assignment. Unplug the network cable from your temporary PC, whistle a few times, and reconnect.
Your temporary PC should receive an IP address assigned by your primary router. You can test this by opening a browser and connecting to an Internet web site.

Generally what happens is that progress will stall whilst you are trying to update the firmware or software/games on your PS3, causing it to be corrupted. Your console is then unable to function properly, and you are left trying to "pick up the pieces" as it were. The PS3 error 80710723 is one of these system update errors, and is often experienced by gamers who use wireless connections to update their firmware or games.
So how can you fix PS3 system update error? Here are a few steps you can take to try and fix the 80710723 error code yourself.
