Wifi controller for PS3, Does radio signal turn off when USB is plugeed in?

Hello:

I recently purchased a PS3 and I'm concerned about Wi-fi exposure through the PS3 controller. I bought a USB extension cable for my controller. The question is, if the USB is plugged does the wireless signal stop transmitting? I checked the manuals that come with the PS3 and I couldn't find the answer. There's no point in using the cable if the radio signal is still transmitting.

The Bluetooth radio signal will stay active as long as the controller is turned on, the USB cable doesn't switch the radio signal off.

Help with signal interference


I assume you are referring to the WI Fi part of your router.

Go into router settings and change the channel from AUTO to manual and add three or six to the lowest available channel number .
If you have cordless phones nearby check they are not on 2.4 Ghz.
Also I have recently noticed that toy Drones operate on the same frequency of 2.4 GHz.

Try different channel numbers until you get no signal interference on your Wi Fi.

If the Router has 802.11AC you may be able to run wi fi on 5 Ghz with an USB 802.11AC adapter on your computer or laptop running on 5 GHz at 1.3 GB/s .

I can'tload Web pages but wifi is on. Am using windows 8. What can I do to solve the priblem


There is a difference between Wi-Fi being on and Wi-Fi being connected. In Settings you can turn on Wi-Fi. All this does is turn on the Wi-Fi radio receiver.

With the receiver turned on you should then be able to view a list of Wi-Fi routers. You will probably see a little lock towards the bottom of the virtual radio signal symbol. These locked Wi-Fi stations cannot be connected to unless you have the right password to log onto them. Most people these days have secured their Wi-Fi routers so unauthorized folks cannot use them.

If you are using your own home router or wireless hotspot from a telecom, you will still have to select it from the list of Wi-Fi routers shown and click connect. If you haven't already entered a password, you will have to enter one.

This can all be done from them Charms menu that slides out on the right. Click Settings and Wi-Fi available.

Wifi saying unable to scan networks


Hello!
Here are the things you can try for a malfunctioing Wi-Fi on your Galaxy S:
Try turning off your Wi-Fi then turn it on again.
  • Sometimes, this works for me as the Wi-Fi might need a restart so it can try scanning again. You can do so by going to Settings > Wireless and Network > Wi-Fi Settings and ticking the Wi-Fi checkbox.
Turn off your handset then turn it on again.
  • An app that was running on your handset might be messing with your Wi-Fi, so to make all things better, you can restart your handset for a fresh boot. :)
Check if there are actually Wi-Fi networks in your area or the Wi-Fi is too weak.
  • If there aren't any Wi-Fi networks to detect, it can't do anything at all in the first place. Try moving to an area with better Wi-Fi signal.

You can ask me if you have any queries! :) ~azukibean70

Unable to connect to wi-fi


I think it is saying that the wifi "card" is set so that it is not being configured by windows.

In XP

Control panel > Network connections

Under LAN or High-speed internet you will see an icon labelled wireless network connection. Right click on this and then click properties. You will see three tabs at the top
General - Wireless Networks - Advanced

Click on wireless networks
There should be a tick-box saying Use windows to configure my wireless network settings. I expect that, in your case, the box is unticked which means that the software supplied by the vendor of the wifi card is configuring the settings. I find that it is usually more reliable to let windows do it.

So tick the box and click OK. You may then have to reboot.

Boosting Signal Strength


Greetings,
It is more likely the placement of the router an/or PS3. If possible do not place anything on top of them and make sure there is space around the units.
You can try using a repeater which will amplify your wi-fi signal. A repeater is a small box that will lock onto your wifi and extend the range of your current router. Here are some examples:

You can also try the cheap solutions found in these two videos for boosting antenna strenght:
