Re: ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router...

Look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

note the wireless key.

go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

(Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).

We have a wireless router connected to two computers upstairs and have tried to connect our Wii to the Internet which is downstairs, it is picking up the access point but will not connect, is it too far...

Well the only solution that would help you out in this case would be to either keep your Wii where it currently is downstairs, or move it closer to the router. Besides that you could also purchase yourself a better, more upgraded router, or purchase a wifi extension for your router and/or Wii.

We cannot connect wirelassly

...I'm not sure on what your actual question is here but make sure you have a wireless network to connect to (you can buy wireless router and an internet service via any internet service provider- I use BT)

If that's not your problem (which i don't know what is) - then make sure your typing security WPA key in properly. (WPA key should be located on the back of your router/hub if that wireless hub got delivered by your current internet service provider). If your still having trouble contact your current home network manager (dad/mum/guardian/employer/lanlord) who has software to control the WPA & what it is).

Your xbox should have a network adapter already installed (device inside that allows connection wirelessly to a networks wireless router/hub). So that shoulden't be the problem (unless your xbox is broken)

Ps3 DNS error 80710102

get the IP adress of your router and go to it online.... your PS3 has what is called a "MAC address. you have to enter the MAC address into the web page to allow access to the internet to the device. this is how i connected a friend of mine to his wireless internet. he tried for weeks with no result but after i did this he was able to connect instantly.

Ps3 wont connect

First thing you want to do is check to see that you have the latest firmware on both devices.

The ps3 is 2.76 and the hub? I don't know you'll have to visit the manufacturer's support site.

Check that first and then let me know.

Connect ps3 wirelees to internet

On your PS3, do the following:

- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless

Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.

For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.

Hope that helps!

if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.
