Is the info here any help? PS3 wireless
If you are using a different home hub than you were using before, you may have to remove any existing wireless connection on the Ps3, and start again.
Some wireless networking remembers the MAC address of the access point, and if that changes, it will not connect, even though the SSID and key are correct.
Also check, if you have a black hub, that the access control is not disabling the PS3.
I am assuming that u are connecting thru a HomeHub? Normally they are WEP not WPA.........try selecting WEP instead and inserting your wireless key this way. Hope it helps.....
No the home hub 2's use WPA
New to BT Total BB and trying to connect my PC, running Win XP Pro, to the hub by wireless.
I see the Hub radio network on the 'Choose a wireless network box' I select it and press conect, a box opens to entry the key. I enter key and confirm and press conect and it says connecting to network but does not. It eventually times out without connecting.
I have checked the key and it is correct (same as on hub label and also in the hub itself) Have tried BTs help program but that is useless!!
My laptop, running Win 7, connects ok.
Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated
There may be an issue with your wireless adapter in your PC not liking WPA2. Try changing the wireless encryption on your home hub to WPA only.
If that fixes the problem, then you may wish to see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless adapter on your PC.
I have exactly the same problem with an old Belkin PCMCIA wireless adapter on an old Acer laptop.
you can also try changing the wireless in the hub from b/g/n to just b/g
Hi Keith, thanks for that. Have changed hub setting to 'WPA only' and it connected straight away.
I could not find a new driver for the WAN so am leaving the hub set to 'WPA only', think that is sufficient in my location. Any thoughts on that?
Thanks also to imjolly.
I could not find an updated driver for my Belkin card as it was very old. WPA is still very secure provided the wireless key cannot be guessed, so I would not worry.
I am pleased that you have it working now.
WPA2 is the most secure, but WPA was the most secure a couple of years ago. So don't worry. Just don't use WEP, that is very unsecure.
I've had this problem for a couple of month now, but just havn't had the time to get it sorted, but it's getting very annoying now.
The wireless keeps dropping constantly, about 4 or 5 times a day, it happens to laptops, phones, ipads, ps3 etc. in my house.
I have a desktop computer and that always works fine, and my laptop is now also connected by ethernet so that I can type this. Sometimes it can be fixed by switching the wireless adapter on and off from my laptop, or by changing the wireless channel, but sometimes I have to restart the router, and in any case, this only fixes it for between half an hour and 2 hours.
I've been reading on the forums, and it seems like this is an issue with a lot of BT Infinity Routers, is there a fix to this?
