My PS3 was connected to my neighbors router via wireless. For 2 months it has worked like a dream....Out of the blue today it just disconnected. Now, I have tried everything I can think of and while attempting to re-connect it successfully obtains an IP address but fails to connect to the internet, Why?

Can i use my WRT120N on neighbors WiFi Network


Hello there,

You cannot use this router to connect to your neighbour's router wirelessly. It is possible to share your neighbours internet connection with this router, only if you run a cable between. You will need a Range Extender or a Wireless repeater for this purpose.

I have a 655 router.. running windows7 on one computer on Home Network.. Router initially working OK..computer connected via cat5 wire. Disconnected router, moved to new location on desk...reconnected...


You can reset both the modem and the router by removing the power cord where it connects into the router (Called Recycling the Power) I would do it with both the modem and the router for about a full 2 minutes.
Sounds more like you have a connectivity issue from interference from something on you desk. Some known culprits are:
High Intensity Lamps Fans Radio Interference coming from your wireless phone Power strip with filters for telephone signal any other environmental issues including computer monitor. Next door neighbor's router signal bleeding through. Filter device missing from phone Filter device missing from phone line connected to you TV
Try moving the router back to the old location. Does problem go away. You are now too close to something thats breaking your signal. I can log into my neighbors access point across the street and two houses away. Signals are strong but can be blocked by a lot of things mentioned above or tin foil.
Check it out,

Can I connect my ps3 to the internet using a secured connection from my neighbor with no router?


If you mean, can you use your neighbor's wireless with your PS3, then yes. Potentially. First, you'll want to have the permission of your neighbor, for legal reasons. Not to mention if their wireless is Secured, your going to need their assistance in connecting the PS3 to that router. If you have their blessing, then just follow the steps on the PS3 to set up a connection, and have your neighbor in the room or on the phone to give you the information when you need it.

If your trying to get access without them knowing, don't bother. If the connection is secure, your gonna waste a lot of time for nothing.

Ps3 keeps cutting out wireless internet


You may have an IP conflict. Renew the IP on both the Sonys
At a command prompt,
ipconfig /release
it will come back with all zeros

ipconfig /renew
It should pick up a new IP address.


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the router may cause conflict with other routers within your network range. Recommend changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wireless router wont connect


Hey mentalmc,

I had this problem at least once a month. Try these things out.
1. Make sure any WEP codes are entered EXACTLY as it is for your router.
2. Set up your router so only your PC connected to it can change any settings.
3. Turn off your PC while trying to connect via PS3 WiFi. The good ole Win update likes to download without you knowing it sometimes.
4. If all else fails, call Sony cause you may have a bad WiFi antenna or motherboard.

Keep loosing my wirless connection


Router setup page for a DLINK should be 192.168.0.1 Right click on the D and click on show available wireless networks. There maybe more than showing. If a neighbor has one or if you have another pc it might be trying to use rhe network card from that oc. Make sure that you click on DLINK for wireless connection. You just may see some other connections and find out that it's trying to use another connection.
