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?

Try to disable the security key of your wireless router in the meantime and try to connect your PS3 without the security turned on. If it connects, what you have to do next is to reset or generate a new security key on the wireless router and setup the PS3 - wireless network connections with the new security key.
get your router name and go through manual setup, your brother may have accedentally made your wireless network hidden, to change that go to http://192.168.1.1 or .0.1 and log in and chang the settings to default
you need to check your internet connection and connect the ethernet cable to the back of the router. if its not synce you will have to unplug and re boot. If the router seem to be working, then you have to go to the ps3 and redo your choice for connection. wireless and search then, find your router on the list and connect.
you could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it. MY Components: -Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G). -Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop) -Linksys Wireless G/B Router -G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and -Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer
At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help? -When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks
Try Disconnecting the router or get a new rotuer i suggest the Wireless - G its a very quick router it has boradband and wireless and it has a Speed Booster. its better than the other 1s but its a 2007 model probably a better 1 out there but i suggest this 1 for about 10 - 20 bucks the brand is Linksys the model is WRT54GS.
Make sure your Netgear router is working correctly and is allowing the PS3 access to it. I suggest visiting the Netgear website (www.netgear.com) and searching for the Router you have. Also try taking down any firewalls that are set up on your computer this will allow the PS3 unlimited access to the connection.
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
