PS3 to router

I have a WRT54G router.

I have been trying to get my PS3 to hook up.

It can see the router but does not go past the connection stage, never gets to where I can enter the network key.

I read somewhere about entering the MAC address for the PS3 into the setup for the router, but I can't find it.

The router is set to mixed, and is not set to filter MAC address's.



Thanks

No I can't, I have a couple of other routers near by that also don't have the security set.
I can't connect to them either.

from a working PC - can we see an xirrus screen shot and an ipconfig /all

connect to the router with a cable and lets see another ipconfig /all

Also post back what the PS3 network configuration is set to ?


------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.co...y/wifitools.php
Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.co...ad_redirect.php
Then run and install the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.
Full details are here http://library.techg...ng_a_Screenshot

Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.

I have also attached a photo of the PS3 config.
I see that it is under wired connection in connection method, but I suppose this is because I havn't been able to connect yet?

By the way, Thanks for you help.

every thing is set to auto - is there somewhere that actually shows the IP information it is currently using ?
I dont know the PS3 setup screen - but would expect to see that
Otherwise you can enter some manual connection information

for IP put ........ 192.168.1.10
subnet mask ....... 255.255.255.0
default router .... 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS ....... 64.59.144.90
secondary DNS ..... 64.59.144.91
