Hi Bidush,

You might wanna check out your notebook to find out if you have any firewall blocking any attempts to connect to nearby wifi. Also, if your notebook comes with intel proset wireless feature, try to make use of that for connnecting to the wireless lan instead of the default microsoft method of connecting (much easier and user friendly).

On the other hand, please do check on the router if you have enabled any form of security feature (mac authentification, wep encryption method, etc) that prevents your notebook from "seeing" the router.

Although these are just surface steps, it is important to makes sure these areas are clear before we go in to further zero in on the problem. I would like to follow up with you on this, so please kindly update me on the situation by replaying to this post and we take it from there. Thank you.

How do you connect to the internet? Are you going through a wireless router or using a usb device provided by a cellphone provider?

Maybe you need to check your settings on the broadband service since you mentioned it. You could also reinstalled the broadband application if it is not solved.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Using my laptop


Hi,
So let me make this clear. you want to be able to connect to the internet wirelessly with your laptop instead of having a cable plugged in. if so, what you need is a wireless router. you can purchase a netgear WGT624 connect that to your DSL modem and configure your laptop to connect wirelessly. there should be an icon on the lower right hand corner to configure your wireless on laptop. its easy. if your having a hard time doing that call dell at 800-8228965.

hope this helps.

thanks.
