Re: PS3 and N band routers
Hey Swolestevo, In order for your PS3 to connect to a wireless network, the router itself will need to be compliant with either the 802.11b or 802.11g legacy Wi-Fi standard. If you're not sure if a given 802.11n router is compatible with either of these previous standards, I'd strongly suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. Generally, you should be able to find a full detailed list of the wireless standards that any given router is compatible with by visiting the manufacturer's website. Hope this helps you out.

You have to hook it up and intall it on a pc first. Then you have to get a wireless router and set it up on the pc in order to create a wireless network for your ps3 to see. This is because your signal is a cellular signal that is not picked up by trhe ps3. Not only that, you cannot install the modem to the ps3 because it will not recognise the software on the modem.
Unfortunately this has more to do with your internet connection then your PS3 hardware. There are two things you can try with very little investment in time and money. First, make sure your connection is good. If your using a wireless signal, be sure your PS3 is getting plenty of signal. If not, try moving it closer to your wireless router. If your using a wired connection, make sure all wires are plugged in correctly and securely, both into the PS3 and the router.
If your using a wireless connection, try switching to a wired connection. This can improve online features by a significant amount. A good Ethernet cord ( the type used by a PS3 to connect to a router) can be picked up at a good price at your local electronics store, or at a larger hardware store like Home Depot or Lowes. Ask at the help desk and they can point you to the cords.
These routers practicall has a range of 55 to 65 meters. If your ps3 is within the range then try thses steps or else you need to buy an access point to get the signal from your router to the ps3.
1) click start menu>run? type cmd and hit enter
2) in the black box and type ipconfig/all
3)note the default gateway
4)open the internet explorer and type the default gateway number
5) username is blank(dont type anything) and password is admin
6) click advanced wireless settings
7) change the following settings beacon interval-75
8) save settings and turn off the router for 30 secs and then give power
- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless
Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.
For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.
there are many possible reasons and solutions for this
-sometimes the weather can block the signal to a router or PS3
-the closer the router is to your PS3 the better the signal
-try not to have a wall interfering with the signal to the ps3
-a computer in your house may have a signal that is interfering with the signal to your ps3
-maybe comcast just sucks?
-try using a wired connection
you will need to obtain your wep key no matter what...you can get it from whoever your router company is (if it is a linksys then call the linksys support number and obtain the key) in most cases thought the wep key is located on the router itself near the bar code. It will be a long number, When you get it and enter it in to the network settings then it should pick up the signal
