Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

My netgear router keepts losing the connection to my PS3 and my laptop. The laptop signal is picked up by a WG111 Wirelss adapter but it still loses the connection. My PS3 has days where it can be good but usually I will experience a lot of lag and connection interupted while playing online. It's no the internet connection as I used to have a D-Link router which worked fine. Is my router interfearing with my television as they are very close to eachother?

You didn't mention which Netgear router you have. Customers of Netgear have reported problems with the WNR854R model. See Maximum PC April 2008.

This is a wireless adaptor not a router.

Check out the internet connection by directly wiring into the LAN port of the router to the PC.

You will probably find the fault there and have to consult your ISP.

If it is the adaptor, check you have the correct driver software and the distance between the computer and the router.

ADAPTER not working


Check the distance bet computer and the Router.
Donot keep your router near television, microwaveoven or any radio active devces, it may reduce the performance.
Check the Antena terminals for any loose connections.
If possible check your wireless signal strength with another Laptop, to diagnose the router is working fine.
If everything seems to be fine, it maybe the issue with the Adapter.

Netgear WG111 doesn't see D-Link DIR-655 wireless network


Hi Joe,

I would suggest you to change the wireless channel on the Dlink and use the channel on which WG111 will scan and connect to your network. Also, plese make sure to use the security encryption on the DLINK to WEP or WPA only. Using higher security like WPA2 will cause issues with this adapter.

Anand

Internall wireless adapter not working


Have you configured the router to broadcast the SSID? In other words, can the 2nd computer (Laptop?) pick up the the router and see the wireless name of the network? or does it not see yours and just other people's down the street?

Connection problem


if it's going offline, then it's losing the signal, or is recieving a low signal, it should be at 54mbps but when it gets below around 24mbps, it will disconnect and look for a stronger connection in your area, or disconnect from the net altogether.

 

Put your router in a higher and better line of sight to your adapter, walls and floors can block the signal and check that it's not your router that is losing the connection.

Netgear wireless adapter


When you say home bases, i assume you mean desktop pc's. If the channel you mention is the channel that the router works off eg channel 11 then all wireless adapters have to be set to channel 11, or the same channel as the router. The reason for one disconnecting from the internet will probably be the adapter losing the signal because of obstacles like walls and doors, as if the signal gets too low then the reciever cannot connect properly with the router, hence dropping the connection. Try the router in a different higher position or at a phone socket nearer the troubled pc. The connection accross the network should be atleast good and at 54 MBPS, anything less may not connect properly. The laptops will tend to have a stronger connection as most have a signal up booster built in the screen.
