I've tried to log onto the internet using wireless contact but get a failed message each time.
I contacted Linksys tech support but the router is working fine we even assigned the playstation a static IP address and it still wouldn't connect.
Do you have any ideas on what I can do to fix this problem.
Do you have a wireless phone? .. a wireless phone could cause the problem .. plug out the wirless phone and see if it helps .. if it does . you will need to change the channal the modem is outputting .. you will have to go into your modems software settings for this ...

Wi-Fi Protected Setup Button If you have client devices, such as wireless adapters, that
support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, then you can

Or an Ethernet (wired) router with a Wireless Access Point (WAP)
You may need to open
firewall port numberson your router to connect to the Internet.
The PlayStation 3 will not connect to the Internet through the USB ports.
You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to
broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the
PlayStation 3 scan results.
If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
WEP or WPA Security Key
If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted)
from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent
Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC
address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your
First, does the PS3 "see/find" the wi-fi?
If not, check location of PS3 in relation to transmitter and see if can re-locate either to find/improve.
When found, just enter wi fi "key" into prompt screen.....that should enable connection
You need to "authenticate" the wireless meaning you need the password to the web signal. Your phone may have an internal software issue in which it prevents you from connecting to the internet. Contact your phone company to trouble shoot it or get a replacement phone.
i can assist you with this.
Take out the UMD disc from the back of the PSP if one is inserted.
Take out your memory card from the memory card reader if one is inserted.
Turn on your PSP.
Go to the "Settings" tab in the Cross Media Bar and select "System Settings."
Select "Restore Default Settings" and confirm that you wish to restore all settings to the factory defaults.
Restart your PSP.
Try connecting to the Internet again. If you still get the 80410A0b error, try connecting to another network. If you successfully establish a connection to another network, your router is at fault. If you cannot connect to the second network, your PSP's Wi-Fi card could be damaged and may need repairs.
Tips & Warnings
Ensure that you are entering the Wi-Fi SSID and password correctly on the PSP.
You can contact PlayStation Support (see Resources) to start a repair order if you PSP's Wi-Fi card is faulty.
if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. Thanks
I don't recommend using the software as most of the time, it either prevents a connection to the router or a connection to the internet. Sometimes both. (I've seen it.)
Instead, use Windows XP's built-in Wireless Zero Configuration (Or use Vista's built-in wireless network detection.) As long as your drivers for your wi-fi adapter are properly installed, you shouldn't have problems using the built-in connection methods.
As for the software... All it's really there to do is help you to bypass the default security of the router in order to get initially connected. I've found the software to be nothing but troublesome in the long-run.
My recommendation is to remove the Linksys software. If you are not able to connect to the router after that, use an ethernet cable to attach the PC to the router so that you can configure the router. Set up wireless security that way.
Once you have configured the wireless security, you should know what your encryption key is. (Write it down for yourself.) Use the built-in wi-fi configuration tools in Windows to seek out the wireless router and connect to it. Type in your key when asked for it and you shouldn't have any problems.
You may consider using the RESET button on the back of the router if you continue to have issues.
One other problem I've often run into is using DSL with the Linksys WRT54G routers. Some DSL modems just aren't compatible with the WRT54G routers. Primarily the older DSL modems.
For example... I had a client recently who had bought the WRT54GS router. He just could NOT get it connected to his DSL modem. Even using the Linksys software. It just wouldn't use the router as a legit gateway device. (He was connected by ethernet and could get into the router's config interface.)
I eventually advised him to contact Qwest and have them send him a much newer version of their DSL modems. (The one he had was a DINOSAUR.) They sent him a new one. Once he got the newer one, we were able to get it networked right away. WITHOUT any extra software. Just using Windows.
Also be sure to check the configuration of your wi-fi adapter in your laptop. Make sure that it is not configured with an old configuration and is set to automatically get an IP from your router. Don't use a static IP while trying to troubleshoot your problem. Let the router configure the IP of your laptop for you. It could just be something as simple as the DNS servers aren't configured properly. (You can find your internet IP and DNS servers in the router's status page, by the way.)
Let me know if you have more details that would be relevant to the situation.
