1. Verify the wireless security which is enabled in your router
2. Check the type of the security enabled in it. It could be WEP(64 or 128) or it could be WPA
3. Make sure that the correct security is enabled in your XBOX

    Playstation 3 help!

    I think this is caused from your new ps3 not having the connection to your wireless box, try inputting the wireless key(back of the wireless box) into your ps3 on Network Settings. Hope this helps.
