How do I configure my router to hook it up to my PS3 wirelessly?

I've got to tell you, not all routers are highly compatible with all gaming systems. You might want to do your homework before getting one to make sure it will be compatible with every gaming system you have or intend to get. If you have any nintendo systems, there is a very good list of routers at www. If Xbox and Nintendo have compatability issues with some routers, I'm sure Playstation has compatibility issues as well.

By the looks of it. Most Belkins seem to work pretty well with most systems. GeneralHawx Follow Forum Posts: Oh wow I didn't notice how old this was until I posted. Frustrated and need some help.

We bought our son a PS3 and in his bedroom he is unable to play online. Called PS and I am doing everything correctly. Exchanged PS3 for new and same issue. Is it my router, how do I know? He really wants to be able to play his friends online. The reason why he wanted that system.. HELP please or maybe I need to purchase a new brand router!! UltimateOnee Follow Forum Posts: I know that since you're posting asking about routers it must be obvious that you have to go with the wireless option.

Ok ignore my response as well just realised this is an old post lol Frustrated and need some help. Does it find the router when you search for it?

I can connect to the Internet through my Ethernet cable, but in order to do that, I have to move my desk and unplug the Internet cable from my computer. So, the distance between my router and PS3 console will basically be non-existent. Belkin get the job done!!! It is easy to install and use, thanks to the Genie software. The USB ports give no problem whatsoever. The display screen is fast and very responsive as well.

Buy it if you can afford it. The router is basically excellent for anything you want to use it for. It's great even if you're on a PC. With Time Capsule, you can get automatic wireless backup of up to 3TB of data. With this router, you exactly get that.

The best part about this router is that all ports support Gigabit speed and auto-crossover; hence, crossover cables are not required. Other than your PS3, it can also be used for streaming HD video and downloading and transferring large files.

The advanced security features ensure that freeloaders and Internet threats are kept at bay. It has Giga Fiber Internet support, due to which a full HD movie can be downloaded in about 5 minutes depending on your Internet service.

Along with the great speed for downloads, it renders a great speed for voice-over IP calls, media streaming, file sharing, etc. This router has been specially made for the ardent gaming fans and comes with Gigabit LAN and WAN ports, and gives a higher data transfer rate.

One can make the most of the wireless network. However, the n router has a rather weak USB storage port. It is an enterprise-grade router and is built for high performance.

Since it has dual-band operation for maximum data throughput, it is perfect for gaming. The PS3 needs to do a search for your router first, there is a way of allowing the PS3 to configure everything automaticly through the XMB.

That's what I did and it was as easy as replaceing a light bulb took about 5 minutes to complete. Save and it will then do an internet connection test once it is done just press O and you are finished.

None of these suggestions worked for me, and neither did tech support as the PS3 isn't in their field of knowledge. I don't know how to get to the battery. You may want to see if there is a reset button on the modem this should do the same thing as unplugging it. You may have to hold the reset for a few seconds for it to work.

The latest modem that came from my provider had to have the reset button held for about 30 seconds or so before it would do a reset 30 seconds is a little longer than it sounds when holding the reset button down.
