Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Antennae Hi! I was interested in your solution. I have a Linksys WRT150N router. Would your suggestion work on this type of router? What is it I am actually looking for? Is it something I plug into the router? Thank-you

    Great suggestion - never thought of that solution. I am just waiting to hear about compatibility before trying one of the suggested solutions.

    Thanks again - good stuff!

I'm unsure if your router is a TNC connector or SMA...

another solution to your problem would be a wireless repeater... Although they do create a very small amount of lag(few milliseconds), it will solve your little PS3 problem.
Worked great for me for years... but the high gain antenna is the no lag solution.

    I found that Linksys uses TNC and Dlink uses SMA... So TNC is what you need. I would suggest the linksys solution tnc antenna since your product is linksys to begin with...
    But any TNC "SHOULD" in theory work... Just make sure your getting two antenna out of it, since your router has two to begin with.

Were having problems connecting our Wii to our router we have a Cisco E2000 router. on the Wii a screen pops up when im trying to connect that asks for a SSID n i cant find that on the rounter or anywhere...

Your SSID is the name of your wireless network, which you probably entered yourself when you set up your router. If you didn't change anything, its probably something like generic like: "ciscoxxxx" or "linksys".

Im trying to connect to the net on my inndo wii but it says i need an ssid number well i put it in but it still wont lemme me do it

SSID is the "name" of the network. It is what is broadcast by the router. Default is the name of the router for example I have a linksys and it said "linksys" until I changed the name of my network. You need to check the settings on the router. Using your computer type into the address bar. You might get a pop up window that asks for a username and password. If you have never messed with the router then leave the user name blank and type ADMIN in the password. Once you access your router you can set the wireless settings by "naming" your network and setting up a "passphrase". You will need to remember the name of the network and the passphrase ro enter it in the Wii when prompted.

Log into your router, type in your PCs web browser and configure a static IP for each of them. Also if your using wire-less its probably better to have at least one wired, both if you can. I've played my ps3 on a wireless-N router that was about three feet away and I lagging while playing killzone 2.

go on the linksys site and then click on the router you have. They all have default IP addresses. Maybe you are typing in the wrong IP address? Also, some of your settings may be wrong so check some XBOX router FAQ's online for other help. I also have a linksys router, but it works fine on my XBOX. You might want to try directly hooking up your XBOX to your modem, maybe it's not detecting the router if you have wireless?

Xbox Live Can't Connect to Friends

Hi akemccarthy

you may need to open the ports for the linksys Router aswell
because the linksys links the belkin to the internet there using a shared connection

once youve fowarded the ports properly check to see if you have enabled the UPNP on both of the routers if they have any

heres a website showing how to port forward the ports you need opening

I cannot connect to my Linksys wireless router.

make sure that you are using the proper encryption type for the connection. Your router most likely is capable of handling WEP, which is what your adapter is more than likely set to use. Log onto your Linksys router by inputting the IP address into the address bar and then check the wireless security tab on the router interface
If you don't know the ip address, open a command prompt window and type ipconfig at the flashing cursor. the default gateway would be the address of the router.

Error 52030 in internet connections

one option is try choosing a different type for your password...i've had the same error before and what i did was to change the password type e.g. from wpa aes-tkip to wpa-aes passphrase (this option will appear during your wii internet connection set-up as you would probably know by now) and everything right afer started to fall in place wii started connecting to my router and never had the same error code ever since.
