I have a PS3 and this router and have wireless working.

I happen to use WEP.

One thing to note: The router shows the encrypted passphrase key in all caps. Try entering the key in lower case from the PS3. Some hardware (like my iPhone) only worked with this router when the code was entered in lower case.

Also, hooking up a keyboard to the PS3 makes the entry a lot more reliable.

Good Luck

What type of encryption are you using for your router. I am hooking up my son's PS3 to the wireless. I'm also a computer, network, and server technician. I may be able to help.

Cant connect to wireless network on my ps3


Hello,
First off you have a wireless router hooked up to your ISP correct.
anually set a static IP for your wireless connection (When going through the network setup in Network Settings --> Internet Connection Settings (wireless), choose Custom instead of Easy when the page asking for either appears).
Set the IP address to something outside your DHCP range. e.g. 192.168.0.5 (for dlink router) or 192.168.1.5 (Linksys router)Default gateway should be the IP of your router. For dlink, this should be 192.168.0.1 and Linksys should be 192.168.1.1DNS Server can be the same as your default gateway, mentioned above.
Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0.If you're using some sort of encryption (WEP, WAP, etc), set it in there as well when it asks to do so.
And that should get you going. I actually haven't done this on the ps3, but its my info from experience with regular pc to pc networking.
Also If you haven't tried this already, change the wireless channel from 6, to 1 or 11 in your router and wireless consoles.
If all else fails, try this http://www.clanbluntforce.com/forum/index.php?topic=864.0

What do you do for the dns error using netgear and a cricket bb


Hi,

Make sure that you are able to go online through your router when connected wired or wireless on any of the computers. If yes, then please make sure that you have forwarded ports on the router for PS3. Specify the model number of the router and is the PS3 connected wired or wireless to the router?

Reply so that I can help u better!!

Ps3


Are you going to connect your PS3 wired to your router or wireless?
1. check first if ps3 is working behind rca modem.
2. then connect a pc directly to your linksys router
3. open configuration page of linksys by typing your gateway on your browser. (usually it is by default 192.168.1.1)
4. go to applications and gaming tab
5. you'll find there port forwarding..key in your number there
> i guess your numbers are like 88 and 3764 (something like that)
6. if your trying to connect your playstation wirelessly, you need to know your wireless security (if your router is secured).
> go to wireless tab and look for wireless security
> get your key
7. go back to playstation and try to view your wireless network
> connect and type in your key
