ps3 wont connect to my wi-fi at all, help i need a genius!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 replies 4250 views Edited Dec 27, 2007
i dont know if the built in wi-fi is messed up, but i have a PSP, i held it up to my PS3 and it had 95% connectivity, but when i do a scan on the PS3 it says that no access point was detected. i tried typing in the SSID, and it was correct, but then an error pops up. i checked on my computer and i have at least ten neighbors that i get signals to as well. i just dont understand how my PSP will connect to my router, and not my PS3 unless it is broken. is there something i should enable? i hope i dont need a new router and i dont want to run a cord upstairs.

You probably have your MAC address filtering enabled. While you are able to see your network you will not be able to add any other devices to your network. I use a free program called network magic which was recommended by my router manufacturer to add and disable devices on my network. It is as easy as clicking the button marked with "add new device"

I hope this helps and here is the link:

Sorry I took so long to post. Playing cod4.  ok

1st. Make sure that you have a static ip set to your PS3. Using auto works most of the time but sometimes it doesn't. For no particular reason. this just means changing the last 3 digits to something between 0 - 100 (ex: If your router is 191.168.0.1  you would change your ip to 192.168.0.10) You know what let me just get you a tutorial.   http://portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm

2. Make sure that your gateway settings match your routers. On dlinks this is 192.168.0.1 On linksys it is 192.168.1.1  If yours is not one of these just do a google search for  __________  default gateway to find yours.

3. in your dns settings enter the following.  1: 208.67.222.222  Trust me they work great.  opendns.com
 
                                                              2: 208.67.220.220

If this doesn't work pm me and I will see what I can do.
