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Like other hardware, wireless adapters can ship with outdated drivers, particularly if the products have been sitting on store shelves awhile.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,

What is the wpa key i dont know mine for ps3


The WPA key is used when connecting to a Router/Access Point
You could get your WPA key by going to 192.168.1.1 on your computer browser
the default password is: admin
If you are on a linksys router, once on the 192.168.1.1 page, go to the "Wireless" tab, underneath it is the "Wireless Security" link, click that to see the security applied to your router and to see the WPA key for accessing it.

How do i connect to internet with ps3, wireless, what is a wpa key?


WPA stands for Wi-Fi protected access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.

While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:


You can correct this problem by entering the WPA Key into your PSP's Network Settings. But before you do that you need to know what your WPA Key is...


Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.


Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.


To reset a Linksys modem/router or Belkin one, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.


Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.


Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.


On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.


If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long.


For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBDm+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGIRVz4RdQ7V3yl$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.


Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: hi my ps3 wonk connect wirelessly keeps asking for...


if your home is set up with wireless router and your computers are connected online wirelessly read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.

Cant connect wirelessly as i cant locate AOSS button


AOSS is what you would see on some high end routers. if your router doesn't support this method or have this button you can't set up your ps3 using it.

The PS3 does not have an AOSS button. AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) is used for wireless setup of devices for your network. Your router will have a button on it for this. If it does not then it more than likely does not have the ability to set devices up in this manner.

1)To use this set up for the PS3 go to Settings>Network Settings> Internet Connection Setting> (Method) Custom> (Select Connection Method) Wireless- (WLAN2_bing.gif Setting) Auto - AOSS. At this point the PS3 will tell you to push the button on the router and that you have two minutes or else the attempt to connect will stop.

Again this only works if your router has this button. and it is not found on your ps3

so you'll need to set it up differently. if your home is set up with wireless router and your computers are connected online wirelessly read along....

Cant get a wireless connection. error code is 51330


Set your router to Mixed Mode.
If it is set to G-Only it will not work.

Set the channel on your router to either 1 or 11

Both of these settings can be found in the wireless tab on a standard linksys router.
