  1. Setting up Wireless Connection on your game consoles?

    * Playstation 3 console


    Make sure that your wireless Internet is turned on and working properly.

    Turn on the Playstation 3 game console.

    Access the "Network Settings" screen under the "Settings" screen in the main menu.

    Select the "Internet Connection" tab and select "yes" when the system displays a new screen.

    Select "easy" on the new screen that pops up asking what type of installation you want to use.

    Select "wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.

    Select "scan" on the next screen so that the system searches for all available Internet connections in the area.

    Select your home Internet when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options.

    Save your settings on the next screen.

    Test the connection to make sure that it works properly.

    * X Box 360


    1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

    2. Turn on the Xbox console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

    3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

    4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.

    5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If the wireless router uses WEP encryption, set up this option on the Xbox or Xbox 360. If the wireless router uses WPA encryption, set up this same option on the Xbox 360.using the same encryption key as on the routerBecause the Xbox does not support WPA encryption, it cannot connect to a wireless router with WPA enabled; you must disable WPA encryption on the router to use it with an Xbox.

    6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen will display whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router. The Connect Status screeen on Xbox will display whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
