How do I configure the Linksys router,(WRT330N) so that we can get the PS3 online. I have the PS3 security on WPA/PSK & Linksys on PSK personal. We've tried everything, downloaded updates, changed settings. It can't find the IP address. Also, do I need to open ports in the gaming settings?? Thanks for you help!

Like other hardware, wireless adapters can ship with outdated drivers, particularly if the products have been sitting on store shelves awhile. If you installed your adapter exactly as instructed and are unable to connect to the network, you should verify that the adapter is working properly.

First, right-click My Computer on your Windows Desktop, click Properties, click Hardware, and click Device Manager (alternatively, click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc in the Open field, and click OK). In the Device Manager, click to expand the Other Devices section and check if your wireless adapter appears there. If it does, this indicates that no driver has been installed for the devices.

If you didn’t install a driver for your device, use the installation disc included with your adapter. If you don’t have an installation disc, visit the adapter manufacturer’s Web site and download the mos....

    The Default Router should be the IP Address of your router. If this is not correct, this would be the reason you aren't resolving any servers. If you are manually entering an IP Address, you will show as connected regardless. If you have not modified the default settings of your router, try the following for the PS3:

    IP Address: 192.168.1.10
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Default Router: 192.168.1.1

    DNS 1: 192.168.1.1

    That should get you rolling as long as the PS3 has access to connect to the router. Make sure you've disabled WEP and WPA if you had previously activated them and following the screens in the post above to enter the MAC into the MAC Filtering. You can get hte MAC Address from the Network Information screen on the PS3. You will also have to obtain the MAC Addresses of any PC's on your network that connect wirelessly and add them to the MAC List. Open a command prompt and type: ipconfig /all to get hte mac (physical address). Follow the instructions in my previous posts.

    Thanks,

I am trying to configure my wireless router for wpa-personal wireless security


It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption. Your wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead. Before you start make sure your computer is directly connected to your router.

1- open a browser and on the address box type the following and press enter ---> http://192.168.0.1
2- on the next screen you will be asked for your routers username and password in order to login. If you have'nt change this information before you can use the following (click log in after)
Username : admin
Password: password
3- once you are in, on the left side menu click on
WIRELESS SETTINGS
4- on the next screen you will see below
WIRELESS SECURITY MODE:
Security Mode:-___________________
Next to Security Mode, select Enable WPA-Personal Security
5- a new menu appears below and asks for the following:
Next to Cipher Mode select--->Auto.
Next to Personal/Enterprise select---> Personal.
Next to Passphrase, enter a key (passphrase). The key is an
alpha-numeric password between 8 and 63 characters long. The password can include symbols (!?*&_) and spaces. Make sure you enter this key exactly the same on all other wireless clients.
Enter the passphrase again next to Confirmed Passphrase.
6- Click Save Settings to save your settings. If you are configuring the router with a wireless adapter, you will lose connectivity until you enable WPA-PSK (or WPA2-PSK) on your adapter and enter the same passphrase as you did on the router.


If you have further questions please do not hesitate to ask me...Good Luck!!!

The wireless network is broadcasting but it will


Howdy,

Sounds like you may have an encryption problem. Are you running an open or secure network? Try setting it to Security > Disabled and see if you can get on. (Please note where you were before you disable the security) This will be under the Wireless > Wireless Security tab. If you can connect after disabling the security then you probably did not enter you key code correctly. OR... You may have set it to a level of encryption that your wireless laptop does not support. (Don't know the age of the laptop - some older ones will support WEP only and "b" only.) Make sure that you are broadcasting in both "b" & "g" ranges and if WPA won't work for you, then try WEP. It is a little difficult for me to tell you exactly what to do because I do not have all the necessary information but perhaps this will help. The main thing is to disable the security first and see if you can connect. If you can, then this is a BIG clue and good news. Then you know it is an encryption issue.

Typically the encryption choices are WPA - WPA-PSK - WPA2 - WPA2-PSK - RADIUS & WEP. I would recommend WPA-PSK with TKIP for normal "modern" applications. If your WRTP54G has the Auto Security setup button on the front of the router you may want to use it to automatically set up your wireless security. You can tell by feeling the raised rectangular push button on the front panel.

Good Luck!

CAN'T CONNECT TO WIRELESS ROUTER WITH LAPTOP.


Temporarily disable all security on the router AND your laptop wireless card and try again to test connectivity.

The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it should30924e8.jpg work.

Also check to make sure that IEEE 802.1x authentication on the wireless network properties Authentication tab is disabled.
