Can't connect wirelessly to my ps3

I'm trying to get my ps3 to work with my brand new wireless router. My playstation searches for it and finds it and shows signal of 100. But when I "test" the connection throught my ps3 it says "test fail" I have used it with ethernet cable and had no problem playing online. Any idea on how to make it work wirelessly?

Ps3 wireless card works with g and b mode only, sounds like your router is in n mode. you'll have to change it to mixed mode. to do that refer to your router manual or pdf manual in the cd.

Always lose connection while playing playstation 3 online. Sometimes my computer displays a launchmodem error when trying to get on the internet. If I unplug the modem and router, it works again.


Please give some information on your router and modem brand/model, also what type of connection do you have, cable, dsl, etc. Go to speedtest.net and post your upload and download speeds as well.

Are you connecting to your play station wirelessly or through network cable directly to the back of the PS3?

Depending on your speeds your connection could be overloaded by the high demand the PS puts on your internet connection, or if you are wireless you could be in far range from where the router is located. Hope this helps. The extra information might help.

Cant connect ps3 wireless to dlink router


The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.

Connection settings for a ps3 via netgear WGR614


you need to check your routers firewall setting by accessing your router through the pc and make sure your plug and play settings are enabled. all can be found on the router setup page. the playstation only requires you to enter the WPSK or WPA wireless encryption key to log on so the problem is usually with the router....hope this helps.

Are you going to connect your PS3 wired to your router or wireless?
1. check first if ps3 is working behind rca modem.
2. then connect a pc directly to your linksys router
3. open configuration page of linksys by typing your gateway on your browser. (usually it is by default 192.168.1.1)
4. go to applications and gaming tab
5. you'll find there port forwarding..key in your number there
> i guess your numbers are like 88 and 3764 (something like that)
6. if your trying to connect your playstation wirelessly, you need to know your wireless security (if your router is secured).
> go to wireless tab and look for wireless security
> get your key
7. go back to playstation and try to view your wireless network
> connect and type in your key
