Cradle,

I have not had any problems with various different routers that I have used for connecting game systems to the internet.

Stick with your major brands and you should be fine (i.e. Linksys, Netgear, D-link, Belkin).

Hope it works out for you.

My EA nation connection keeps crashing


f this issue has been ongoing, I would recommend troubleshooting the network connection.
Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can take for the network:
* Disable your Media Server Connection under [Settings] [Network Settings] [Media Server Connection].
* Power cycle your network devices. Leave both your modem and router unplugged without power for at least a full two minutes.

After you power cycle, attempt to reconnect to your network with the following steps:
* Select [Settings] > [Network Settings] > [Internet Connection Settings].
* Choose [Easy] set up, and then [Wireless Network].
* [Scan] for your network, then select your network from the list.
* Press right once you see your network's ID, then ensure that the proper security type is highlighted. Press right again, and then enter your network security key.
* Press X to save your settings, and then X again to test if your connection is now working.

* Try positioning your PlayStation3 system closer to the wireless router to enhance the wireless signal.
* Try updating your router or modem firmware through your computer.
* If your router has a MAC address filter, please add the MAC address of your PlayStation3 to the accepted list. Your MAC address can be found at [Settings] > [System Settings] > [System Information].
* You may need to open ports on your router. I've included a link to the port information below, you will need to contact your router manufacturer for support with opening the ports for game play:

Firewall Port Numbers to Play Games Online
Article Link: http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/241

* You may need to connect the PlayStation 3 system directly to your router via an Ethernet cable to increase the signal strength.
* Finally, try connecting your PlayStation 3 to the Internet in a different network environment (such as a friend's house) to see if you receive better results. If you do, the problem lies with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or router manufacturer.

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

The connection to the playstation network fails


sounds like a problem with the wireless network card.

Go thru these instructions to get your ps3 to recognize your wireless router, if it doesn't work then you know that your wireless network card in the ps3 is bad:

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.
