Do you have anything else on your wireless router using the wireless?....Does a laptop with a wireless card hook to your wireless setup and surf the net?...

Cant get into 192.168.1.1


Unplug the router, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in.

This assumes that the address settings have not been changed in the router using the user interface. If they have, you will need to push the red reset button on the back of the router, but doing this resets all security settings back to "as shipped" settings.

Do I need a 2nd modem to hook my ps3 up to the internet? My ps3 is no where near my computer...how can I get it hooked up to the internet?


I would use a wireless router. Then you can use ps3 or laptop in the house. Or run ethernet from main router/modem to the ps3. You can buy the ethernet cables at amazon.com and newegg.com and they can go a few hundred feet.

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

I hooked up a wap54g access point to a cat-5 line then connected to a router...but cant print to the printer on the network. any help?


If the wireless works okay, then you need to add the printer to your pc. Go to printers in the control panel, select add printer, and follow the prompts. If still no good , let me know if the make/model of the printer and whether it is connected directly to a pc on the network, or plugged into a router/switch with an ethernet cable.

Why won't my ps3 connect to my wireless router? An IP address is needed which it will not find, only on wired connection will it connect!?


Disconnect the LAN cable from the PS3.
The PS3 needs to be configured as follows :-
Select Network Settings - Easy - Wireless - Scan, select your wireless router, select your SSID, if it isn't displayed the type it in, select security settings, enter your router's encryption settings

Your router will issue an IP address to the PS3 and you will able to access the Internet wirelessly.

Cant connect


do you have DHCP enabled on your wireless access point / router?

If not you'll need to find somewhere to either enable it, or manual set your ip for the PS3

How do i hook up my ps3 to my network wirelessly


Make sure the same SSID and network key is configured on your PS3's wireless settings. To get the SSID and network key do the following steps.

1. Open your Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the Address Bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. Type admin on the password, leave it blank for username. If admin password doesn't work, type your own password.
3. When you get to the Setup page of the router, go to Wireless tab. Take not of the SSID or the Wireless Network Name.
4. Now click the sub-tab Wireless Security that's under the Wireless tab. Take note of the Security Mode. If it is WPA-Personal, take note of the Shared Key or Passphrase. If the Security Mode is WEP, take note of the WEP key # 1.

5. Now all you need to do is access the Wireless Settings of your PS3 and configure manually the SSID and the Security Key. Then reboot the router and PS3. That should do it.
