    Nope too much obstruction between the routers. RF waves will not go thru. You'll need to another router.

Playing Online Games Behind The Router

A router uses a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or internet traffic from accessing your private local area network (LAN). If your game console, such as Playstation is behind the router, you will need to configure routers Port Forwarding feature in order to play online games.

Note: You will need to get the ports and service type for your games. This is usually available from the games website.

Steps how to configure router to play online games:

  1. Open a browser and type in the following URL: or (depending on the model number of the router)
  2. Type the Username as admin and the Password as password and click OK.
  3. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced menu.
  4. Then click on Add Custom Service
5. Under Service Name, type the name of the game.
  • Select the Service Type from the drop down menu (depending on the game).
  • Type the Starting Port and Ending Port numbers (depending on the game).
  • Type the IP address of your PlayStation in the Server IP Address box and click Apply.
  • Click on WAN Setup under ADVANCED menu.
    • Check the Disable SPI firewall box
    • Change MTU size from 1500 (which is the default) to 1300 and click Apply.
    Now the Playstation is ready to use.

    I hope this helps...

    Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3

    I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

    Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

    if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
    This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

    The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.

    Connection for Ps3 thru netgear router

    Make sure that you NAT is open to your PS3. To open it, you need to forward some ports. Call up PS3 and ask them what ports are needed to be forwarded. Then, go and do the adjustments to your router.

    Ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router how do i connect ps3 to computer ps ps3 is upstairs and pc downstairs

    look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

    note the wireless key.

    go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

    (Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

    anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

    keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).

    Hooking up my gaming router

    There is a 90 % possibility that the wireless settings on the gaming adapter and the router are not the same. Try to reconfigure this again. Remember that the gaming adapter's wireless settings needs to synchronize with that of the router to make the gaming adpater works. Call netgear and verify the settings on your wireless connection and reverify the settings you have on the adapter. For manual instructions, see user guide at
