I've tried just about everything at this point. I've scanned the web to no end and still no luck. For whatever reason I cannot get my PS3 or Wii to connect to my wireless network. I have a Netgear Wireless router (WGR614v6) and ATT DSL. I've tried creating a static IP address (which I probably did wrong), I've tried making a DMZ, and just to keep this post short, just about every other method I've read about. If anyone here as any ideas or advice on how I can get this done, I'd appreciate it. Oh, FYI, I've got all the upgrades for the PS3 and my router installed as well.

Hmm.... I had no trouble at all setting up my Wii and 360 to our wireless network here. I just have a basic password protected wireless network here and had no trouble configuring the systems for it.

When you configure them, can your PS3 and Wii see the signal from the router?

Can other devices access your wireless network? If not, is the transmitter from your router turned on?

I know that may sound basic, but they're the first questions I'd be inclined to ask regardless, no insult intended. :)

I'm out working for a bit, but will try to answer as soon as I get back in, unless someone else beats me to it.

Try disabling the WEP or WPA security in your router. You wouldn't want to operate this way permanently, but just to rule this out as the problem.

I had the same problem with my wii. I called AT&T and they walked me through finding my wep # and entering it into the wii.

Thanks for the replies. I turned off the wpa and it connected right away. So then I re-enabled it, changed the ssid name and tried again and as of right now PS3 and Wii are wireless and lovin' it!
