Question about Computers & Internet
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.
