Make sure your Netgear router is working correctly and is allowing the PS3 access to it. I suggest visiting the Netgear website (www.netgear.com) and searching for the Router you have. Also try taking down any firewalls that are set up on your computer this will allow the PS3 unlimited access to the connection.

What is the operating system on your laptop? If your network is secured then you will need the setting of the router. Is there any other wireless computer which can connect? What error message do you get?
Are you referring to the password required to connect to your wireless network called "Netgear"? I assume you're being asked for a password on the 2nd computer when trying to connect to the wireless network called "Netgear".
In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box. This is currently set to "Netgear" most likely.
Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
Click Apply to save the settings.
Once you've set this password, you can use it to connect to "Netgear" on your second computer.
Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. Be sure to try both channels if the first one you try does not work. This can potentially increase the download speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available). (The "Channel" setting is typically found in the "Wireless" section of your router's setup utility.)
If adjusting the "Channel" did not work, please review our "Slow Download Times or Errors Received While Connecting" troubleshooting tips by clicking here.
Are you using a Netgear brand wireless router? Our expeirence shows disabling the "SPI Firewall" of the router may help the connection. The "SPI Firewall" option is typically found under the "WAN Setup" tab of the router's settings. For information on accessing your router's settings, please click here and select the model of the Netgear router you own (if available).
If you are still receiving this error code, please click here for assistance.
Scan for the wireless network on the computer and connect to your wireless network of router.
If you get any error message or code then let me know pls.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
