Have lynksys wireless router but is unsecure -
You can enable WEP on your router to make your wireless network secure.
To access the screen of the router, type the ip address of the router in the address bar of Internet explorer or Firefox. By default the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1. If this doesn't work, go to the command prompt (Start -> run -> type cmd). Type ipconfig. Copy the default gateway.
It will prompt you for a user name and password. By default leave the user name blank and then type admin in the password field.
Once you are in the Linksys screen, go to the Wireless tab -> Wireless security.
For the security mode, select WEP.
WEP encryption: 64bits 10 hex digits.
On the Passphrase field, type a wireless password of your choice, then click Generate.
It will give you a key. You will need to copy the wireless network key because you will need to enter this key on your PS3 and laptop. Take note that this is also case sensitive.
Once you click save settings, it will disconnect all your wireless computers.
You will need to manually enter the wireless network key on all your wireless devices. Without the network key, other computers will not be able to connect to your network.
I hope this helps.
