I'm constantly having this same problem. My PS3 has just decided to stop seeing my wifi signal. It'll stop connecting in the middle of streaming Netflix or just not work. I go to re-setup my network settings and it won't even see my router... I live in an apartment- at any given time there's a dozen wireless routers within range. It just says; The access point was not detected.
All my other devices have no trouble seeing my router, and everyone else's.
I can usually get it going again by restoring the default settings- and it'll work for an indefinite period of time. Sometimes only hours. Having to restore default settings, just to have to set everything back up the way I want it every time is absolutely ridiculous. I've been all over google for months, hoping to come across an obvious fix and while many are having this problem- but cannot find any solution...
The error codes I receive are useless- the PS3 code lookup utility returns nonsense that's completely unrelated (that we're even dealing in error codes these days is utterly stupid anyway)
If anyone has ANY idea how to fix this please let me know. This machine has been the cause of a lot of frustration for me and I'm seriously regretting not going for a basic set-top Blu-Ray player instead.
Nothing will connect to my ps3. Controller will only work with a wire, no connection to the internet by cable or wireless, haven't checked my mic yet but i'm guessing that wont work either.
When i try to connect to my router wirelessly it wont find anything although there is a router in the room and next door have one.
I just fixed my yellow light by myself and i dont know if this had an effect on it? If i knocked something while doing it?
I've just had to fix the yellow light of death for the third time now and I realise its only a temporary measure, but now I'm having exactly the same problems that you're having. No internet, wireless or cable and my keyboard and controllers won't connect. I read somewhere that someone had a similar problem but it was only down to a bad connection or lose wire when putting the system back together, if you come up with any solutions let me know..
@Zee58 You may have missed a cable or two for the wireless card when reassembling your PS3. Depending on the model, the wireless card on the PS3 handles WiFi, Bluetooth and USB. Your reception will also be poor if you overlook one of the antennae connections too.
