Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 cant find my wireless network after my brother hooked up his laptop to my wireless router. the ps3 now only scans and finds HIS laptop that is using MY wireless network and he doesnt know his wpa key or whatever security that is. help!
my internet still works on my cpu but i cannot connect my ps3 to my original router. its as if his laptop renamed my network because when i scan networks on my ps3 it finds his laptop w a 90% signal strength, when before it would list my PC's name and its signal strength...
he had been trying to hook his laptop up to my wireless router but i couldnt remember the pin. then his laptop told him to find the pin on the wireless router itself (while he kept trying different pins). he did, entered the pin on the bottom of my wireless router and he was able to connect to the internet. just as he did that, i was playing ps3 and the ps3 was immediately taken off line and has not found my PC in any scans since...it only finds his, and i dont know what pin to put in to connect to his laptop to get online again w my ps3. i tried the pin on the bottom of my router to my pc but that doesnt work. keep getting error messages..
Get your router name and go through manual setup, your brother may have accedentally made your wireless network hidden, to change that go to http://192.168.1.1 or .0.1 and log in and chang the settings to default

Erm, from what i'm getting, your hosting a ad-hoc network with his laptop and your PS3 is out of range of the router because someone must of moved something.
