Want to use belkin n150 as wireless access point to ps3 and have no internet


Are you saying you are trying to setup a wireless connection, even though you don't have internet? Impossible!


Normal setup - Connect the ISP modem to main uplink port on router. Then connect pc to any other port. Done!

Now connect PS3 as normal. Look for the Belkin network SSID and Key. There is a small piece of paper underneath the router with default ID and password key. It is also noted on Web Admin page. You can always use the reset to clear any custom settings.

Access point option is only for unsecured connection. Do not use.

you need to bridge, yes
the other thing you need to do, is right click on the internet connection and say "Allow other computers to connect to the internet via this connection"
this should allow the ps3 to grab an IP address via DHCP

II cannot share my internet through my Ethernet cable with my acer aspire one notebook. More specifically I can't share my connection with my playstation3. It obtains the ip address but fails to connect to...


The ip number needs to be in the same range as the router ie 192.168.xxx.xxx usually the third number is 1

the gateway needs to the the ip address of the router 192.168.xxx.xxx often the last two numbers are 1.1 or 0.1 though some routers are configured with different numbers

If there is a WEP key you must have that in there too

Also the DNS numbers needs to be the ones your ISP uses.

If it doesn't configure automatically try a manual setting.

If you still have a problem you can try putting the IP number of the PS3 in the DMZ of the router.

Cannot share my cable modem connection


You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

PS3 (80GB) Obtain IP Address : Failed, Help?


Try swapping the ends of the ethernet cable between your PS3 and the router. Otherwise, try a different ethernet cable. Also check that there are lights on by your ethernet port on the PS3 and the router.

-Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop)
-Linksys Wireless G/B Router
-G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and
-Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer

At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help?
-When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks

Linksys wireless g wrt54g router setup


I would check the ip addresses for the modem & the router.You can do this by typing a command line from the "Run" entry on the Start menu. At the command line type in ipconfig /all & there you will find the ip addresses. My hunch is that they are both set to 192.168.1.1 - you will need to change one of these to something like 192.168.2.1.

Help connecting Cable Internet through D-Link DI-514 Router


what may be happening is the wireless pc as it was; needs the dns and ip address flushing, also the pc you connected the router to as you must have conflicting ip addreses Click start run then type ipconfig /flushdns. You should ensure that the router is set to enable DHCP to assign ip addreses and make sure your'e network cards on all pc's are set to obtain ip address automaticaly in the TCP/IP properties. Restart the pcs and type 192.168.0.1 in your web browser and get into your router setings and check in the DHCP section that all pc's have been given an ip address. If all fails you may need to reset the router
