I have a PS3 in one room and my computer and internet in another. I have bought a wireless router but it is hooked up in the room with the computer. I don't want to have to run a cable to the other end of...


Check your wireless network name in your computer if it is wireless enabled.
Then go to your PS3. Go into the network settings and check if the wireless connection is detected.
When you check the network settings, make sure that ip and dns settings are set to automatic.
After that you would need to open some ports on the comp for your PS3 so that you can play online.
Also let us know the make and model no of your router so that we could tell how to open the ports on the router GUI.
Very first thing your PS3 should detect the wireless connection on it.

Can you hook up the ps 3 to the internet router to get online with out using a computer


do you have a wireless router?

depends on how your internet is set up

but if your internet is set up like this

internet plug on wall>>>wireless router>>>>main computer

then you can connect to the wireless router without having the computer to be on

if you can use the wireless internet using a laptop then i dont see why it wount work for the ps3

if you dont have a wirekless router and your internet router has several eithernet ports then you can run a either net cable from the router to the ps3

How do u hook up ps3 online usin broadband card and laptop


Hi, The PS3 has a built in wireless card. You need a broadband internet connection& a wireless router for it to work this way.

What hardware do you have? You wont be able to connect the PS3 to the internet if you only have a laptop with a wireless broadband card. this is to be used for one PC/laptop at a time. Sorry

you could query this with Verizon though i am sure they would agree, that it is to be used for one PC/laptop to access the internet.

Thanks

My ps3 cant find my wireless network anymore


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

Can't connect my PS3 to a Linksys Wireless-G BB router


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.

Trying to get online with ps3


Your PS3 should hook up fine to a wireless router if you input the correct SSID(network name) and WEP key. No ports have to be set to open for your PS3

Ps3 online


Dial up is NOT recommended. I honestly do not think it would even work. DSL and broadband work great. If you get DSL or broadband you would need your original ethernet cord and hook up the PS3 from your router. If you go wireless then you would need a wireless router.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Just hooked up ps3 wirless , gaming is slow


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" )
