It's the other way around - your PS3 and PC need to be configured to "see" your router. That is, your router's settings, specifically the SSID, channel #, and security options, need to be set correctly in the PS3 and PC.

First, I am going to assume that you are running a Windows-based operating system, and my ideas are going to be specifically oriented towards Windows XP. If you use Windows 2000 or Vista, the operations I describe will be slightly different, so ifyou're not real familiar with those operating systems, let me know andI can send you revised instructions.

If your router isbroadcasting its SSID (it's unique ID), which is an option in mostrouters, then your laptop should be capable of detecting it. You shouldhave an icon on your desktop named "My Network Places". Right-click onit and select PROPERTIES. A dialog box should pop-up that shows yournetwork connections. If your wireless connection is installed correctly, you should see i, possibly with a red "X"through it, which is OK. Right-click on it and select VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

Another dialog box should pop-up that will list all of the available wireless networksin your vicinity. You should be able to see your router in this listand it will likely have a name associated with the router'smanufacturer (e.g. USR, Netgear, Linksys, etc.). It should also be thenetwork that has the strongest signal since you are close to it. Youshould now be able to select it and then click on the CONNECT button.

Whetherthe connection process is completed successfully, you will see anotification of this. But before you do anything, bring up Internet Explorer and see if you can reach a website like www.cnn.com.

Hope this helps.

More than likely if you haven't downloaded the correct drivers, maybe?
As it works with the LAN cable, I would think the pc must be OK, I would check the settings for the router and re boot the laptop.
Hope that helps.

Hello
This not a big deal for a wireless network to work on downstairs, you need to check your connection and settings of the routers/computers. or just put a repeater for improvement of signal strength.
If the matter is signal strength, for the purpose see the TIP link below

I've also had this problem when trying to connect my Medion Laptop through a Netgear Range Extender. It would find the router wirelessly but not through the Netgear. I had tried every solution on the web for days without success. Thanks to this page and a contributor who suggested updating the driver (which I had thought of previously) I did that and it all works fine. My laptop is 7 years old and wouldn't recogise WPA-PSK which was the setting on a newly installed router.

Update your Driver. :)

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem


I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.
