      Re: ps3 wireless

      i think the sky router is set to WPA, have you changed in the router or does the PS3 do WPA

      Sony PS3's wireless capabilities are rather shocking. Try moving your wireless router closer. Also, check and ensure that ps3 is WPA enabled

      Re: ps3 wireless

      it is on wpa encryption but the ps3 allows that and i have entered the key but it fails,someone says this but how


      ) Once you get in, look for the setting to enter "DNS Primary and Secondary." (In mine, it was under “WAN.”) Once you find it, enter the values above for DNS (208.67.222.222 primary and 208.67.220.220 secondary). - Mine had 0.0.0.0 for both primary and secondary before I did this which makes me further believe that this was the problem. - Make sure to apply the changes.

      Re: ps3 wireless

      My PS3 works fine with sky router on wireless. I didn't make any changes to the router just put in the key in the PS3 set up and it worked. There is a test in the PS3 network settings that tell you where the PS3 is failing. Also you could try turning the router off and on.

      Re: ps3 wireless

      If you do the test at what point does it fail?

      Re: ps3 wireless

      have you set your router to only allow certain macs?
      have you set teh router to only assign a small number of IP address?
      have you made any changes to the default setttings on the router at all, if so what?
