Wireless N Support for PS3?

Q: Wireless N Support for PS3?

Doing some research to finally set a home wireless network. I have an original PS3 and am trying to determine if there are any wireless N adapters that are compatible. Have seen contradictory reports on the web so Im curious if anyone here has this up and running or can make a specific recommendation.

Preferred Solution: Wireless N Support for PS3?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Wireless N Support for PS3?

You can set up a wireless network using ANY wireless capable device. PC's, Notebooks, PDA's and PS3's. The methods are the same

Hello All Here's my problem My Acer Aspire Z- had an Acer Update program on it I downloaded the updates it recommended and installed them I was getting blue screen crashes after that I couldn't figure out what was causing it Then due to a router firmware problem I didn't know it until i went into the router to change wireless password because I was getting ticked off I couldn't connect any longer the update was done BSOD with killed tech wireless, my support wireless and I didn't change the password because after this update I was able to connect wireless again I was connecting with a network hard cable I noticed the blue screen crashes had stopped After the firmware update I was able to connect wireless again so I unplugged the hard cable and resumed wireless use After a couple of hours I had another blue screen crash The only thing that had changed was that I was back to using wireless to connect to the router So I got a flash of insight that maybe conflicts with the drivers were causing the crashes so I called tech support BSOD with wireless, tech support killed my wireless and the tech walked me through uninstalling the wireless driver that was showing Broadcomm He also had me uninstall ms miniport which was also listed in there I read in an old post here or at another tech forum that it wasn't possible to uninstall it as it was part of Windows in one reply to that post another reply in that post said that it came with the person's wireless driver and he could just disable it Well it seems that it BSOD with wireless, tech support killed my wireless is possible to uninstall it as I uninstalled it as instructed by the tech and it hasn't come back And it doesn't seem to be part of any of the drivers available for download for my model I know this because I reinstalled all the wireless drivers listed for my model after an online chat with another tech she recommended doing a recovery of the system I don't want to do that I don't think I should have to do a recovery of my system and lose all my software and have to reinstall it again just to fix this problem So I decided to hit the forums Stopped here first it seems very active and the replies to posts seem to be knowledgeable The wireless drivers the acer site lists for this model are Broadcomm Intel Realtek and Atheros I thought this was too many drivers but decided to reinstall them all anyway thinking it might be possible each one handled a different thing for example the atheros driver seems to install something called fast reconnect Anyway the techs at Acer didn't seem to be able to tell me what wireless chipset is in the system they just wanted me to do a recovery And ms miniport has never come back And even after reinstalling all drivers wireless is still messed up and Win network diagnostics can't seem to pin down the problem or fix it The Acer vendor detector utility they told me to use says that it is a broadcomm board or chipset But just installing that wireless driver alone I did install the broadcom ethernet driver too doesn't give me back wireless diagnostics says there is a problem and it can't fix it And still no MS Miniport Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:BSOD with wireless, tech support killed my wireless

sorry to bump this post but I'm having trouble locating any information on this problem. Is there at least a way to remove all the drivers I installed and start over, maybe use find new hardware to reinstall the correct drivers and ms miniport? I have used the technique in other posts to activate miniport and it isn't showing up in device manager under network stuff like it had been before

I'm just wondering if miniport is necessary for wireless connection for some reason, maybe how they had it set up by Acer. I used recovery just to reinstall the factory drivers, but no joy. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi, I have some issues with my existing Intel WiFi Card - 6205. Before putting in a support requst I was wondering what are the compatiable cards for this product? Looking online, I found at the link that Intel 6250 WiMax and N-6300 are compatiable under the FRUs 60Y3195 and 60Y3233 respectively. However, Intel has just launched the 7260 AC card which is much faster and I was wondering if the T530 supports that i.e. if it has been whitelisted given that it was whitelisted for X140e and is being offered for newer Thinkpads online. I would appreciate if anyone can provide more information about compatible cards and the possibility of an AC card on T530. Cheers,507437218

According to, your ThinkPad L450 should be equipped with the Intel Wireless-N 7265 WiFi module.Therefore, your L450 should support WiDi respectively Miracast (only the version with a Realtak WiFi module lacks Miracast support).

It has a wireless network card built in and it is turned on, but it is not recognized by the system, in the sense that it does not appear under Network Connections in Control Panel.

Hello, I am looking to upgrade my laptop's wireless to wireless AC.  I am looking for a Mini PCI Express wireless AC card that is compatible with my system.  I heard that this laptop is only compatible with certain wireless cards and it will not work with wireless cards from intel.  Is that true??  Thanks.

A:Wireless Mini PCI Express Support for Elitebook 725 G2

I found a random forum post on of an owner of J5N82UT (one of the 725 G2 SKUs) who claims Intel AC7260 worked on his/her machine. I see 725 G2 are available from HP with one of the three WiFi options,Broadcom 802.11 a/b/g/n AC (2x2) and Bluetooth® 4.0Broadcom 802.11a/b/g/n (2x2) and Bluetooth® 4.0Atheros 802.11b/g/n (1x1) No Intel options there, but maybe it'll just work. Some(?) models of 725 G3 comes with Intel AC7265 from factory, like mine, but G3 is different from G2.Maybe HP BIOS already whitelists Intel adapters, even if some models aren't offered with them. I doubt HP would say anything one way or another.  You'll just have to try it. Update: I'd ignore the "expert" opinion below if you really want the Intel one.  Even with a little Googling, I see people complaining about Broadcom ones (Dell XPS, for example) and those people being happy with Intel ones after replacing it on their own. Maybe this is the same person who posted on, but at least that person claims it works with 7260 AC according to this review:

Will Lenovo add official support for Sierra Wireless MC7710 please ? It is LTE/HSPA+ WWAN "Gobi 4000" module for Europe region. By support I mean to whitelist the device in BIOS at least, assuming the WWAN card will be Lenovo branded one for X230 model. Please consider that many of us could wait for X230 with official 4G WWAN support but the keyboard layout change was unacceptable so we bought X220 instead. Because Lenovo don't want to introduce ThinkPad classic keyboard as X230 option they could allow X220 owners to use up-to-date WWAN cards instead.

A:X220 support for 4G/LTE Sierra Wireless MC7710 WWA...

There is a little bit problem for implementing full featured LTE support in x220 - mc7710 needs 3 antennas. Perhaps one of them is for GPS only, I don't have clear information. MC7700/7750 support restricted number of bands for US market so may be they don't need 3rd antenna in x230. We'll see some answers when x230' parts list will be published and compare antennas FRU.But your request is very important for me too.

I'm also wondering whether there will be Lenovo support for MC7710 (LTE in Europe) in X220   Yes, I could have waited for X230 but because of the ruined keyboard layout I had to buy X220. I'm sure it is technically possible but I fear Lenovo will not be willing to suport LTE cards in older models.

I have HP Photosmart Wireless B109 which works with other computers I have.  I recently obtained new laptop running Windows 7 Pro. When I try to install printer drivers (either from disk or from web) I get error message after system check which says that 'this computer does not have the necessary USB software support to allow completion of USB installation. The installation cannot continue until this is resolved'. I have contacted the laptop supplier and downloaded and reinstalled the USB drivers and then rebooted. There is no problem with my USB connections. However, I still get the USB error message when I try to install the latest HP driver. The laptop supplier insists that the problem is with the HP printer software and not with the laptop.

Hello, I only found out after purchasing the Y510P laptop that it for some strange reason does not support 5Ghz networks, only 2.4Ghz. This results in me having insanely slow connection every single night around peak hours (7-11pm), and I'm unable to do anything like watching movies, playing games or download stuff. Does anyone know exactly how to upgrade the wireless card on this laptop so it supports 5Ghz networks? Do I have to go out and buy another wireless card, or is it software upgrades like drivers only? I'm not a computer major so a walkthrough would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi there,I've reserved Win 10 upgrade.

I can't get any drivers from Dell/Broadcom site that are compatible with Win 10 on my machine. Does it mean after upgrading to Win 10 I'll lose wireless connection on my laptop or Win10 will support my device out of the box? How to fix that issue?

A:support for broadcom virtual wireless adapter for windows 10

it means your laptop will use windows universal drivers for wifi which will results weaker signal, it will be better for you to wait until official drivers are out for your model then install the driver after installing windows 10 to keep your signal strength.

Hi Scott_SK,
Welcome to the Community.
To be able to use the Intel Wireless Display the system needs to have the  following minimum requirement as given in this link below :
Replacing the wireless card(Dell Wireless card with Intel) or adding wireless card will not help as this feature should be enabled on the system from the factory.
If your system is within 21 days from the invoice date you may returm the system for full refund and re-order a system which supports the WiDi technology.

This is a General question regarding the end of support for XP. I realise at the end date the computer should be backed up in case you have to format the disc at any time after the end of the support period.

My question is does the built in Windows back up in XP when backing up the system include the installed updates? Or is it best to use third party software to do this.


A:[SOLVED] End ofThis is a general question regarding the end of support for XP support

I believe Windows just backs up your personal files and won't do the entire OS. You'll need a 3rd party program to do the entire HDD.

Also you really should think about upgrading to Windows 7. Staying on XP after the end support date is not recommended as you will lose security updates from Microsoft as well as patches.

Some how my old friend managed to upgrade my PC from Windows XP to Windows 7 with that chipset driver CD I gave him. I don't know how he did it. I would ask him but he moved to Germany. Anyway I've heard you can run the setup with Windwos Vista compatiblity mode but I don't know if it is safe. Anyone know?

Download the drivers from the manufacturers website. The driver CD is likely outdated anyway.

Hey guys:

I believe your Product looks really promising but I'm having some challenges while deploying the Trial in my Environment. We have 200+ DCs globally and 17 Domains. Does your solution support a multi-domain environment? How many DCs per gateway are you able

I have a printer (with wireless capability) wired to desktop (Windows XP) and a wireless laptop (Windows 7). My question is, can the printer be connected wirelessly to the laptop as well as wired to the desktop, or does everything have to be wireless?
Another question: If I want to share files between the two computers, do they both have to be the same operating system? (one is Windows XP and the other is Windows 7)

A:Solved: Wireless Laptop/Wireless Desktop (via wireless adapter)/ printer

I would guess that the printer can be connected by ethernet and wireless, but I've never had one with both capabilities so I don't really know.

I once had a printer that worked OK connected to a network plus connected to another computer by USB. Even so, that may depend on the particular printer.

There may be two operating systems that cannot file share with each other but I don't know which ones that might be. Windows XP and 7 are fine sharing with each other (but not claiming that nobody has had any problems).

A:How do I change to wireless? No wireless option, no wireless adapter

What is the make and model of the PC? Is it a laptop? Is there by any chance a switch that turns the wifi on/off?

If the wifi worked in the past and suddenly stopped working, I would suspect that the adapter failed but it could also be switched off or the driver got corrupted or otherwise disabled somehow.

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it?

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

Hi Guys,

I guess this is a pretty straight forward question. I'm trying to connect and charge at the same time a XBOX 360 wireless controller with Windows 7 without buying a Wireless Gaming Receiver. Please only post if you have a resolution for this problem with step by step instructions on how this is done if it even is possible.

Thank You

Well to connect wirelessly you will need to buy a receiver..

But for wired, download this:

Then insert your Controller into the PC using a Play&Charge USB cable.

Checklist for networking Windows Machines with TCP/IP
- PCs which are not XP must have TCP/IP installed.
- Each PC must have a unique computer name.
- Each PC must have a network share defined.
- ALL NICS must be on the same subnet (e.g. IP 192.168.0.* subnet mask
- XP PCs must have Netbios over TCP/IP enabled (only essential for XP to talk to W9X PCs).
- MS Client and file & printer sharing must be enabled on each machine.
- All NICs must have their node type = anything except p-node (peer to peer, or point-point).
* To check, open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
- XP's ICF firewall is permanently disabled. (Only necessary for pre XP SP2).
- All 3rd party firewalls are disabled, uninstalled and deleted (until connection is working).
- PCs have the same workgroup (helps, but not essential for XP/2K, necessary for 9X/ME).

Allow 15 mins after rebooting a PC for that PC to appear in the workgroup, or
for it to see all other PCs. Or you can search for the PC by its computer name.
Additional things to check if you still have problems:
- Check your Services are Started on all PCs: Workstation, Server, TCP/IP Netbios helper, Computer Browser.
- XP gives access to its shares via the Net Guest Account. (Note, not the same as the local guest account in user accounts which should be off). Net Guest Account is enabled by default in XP, but to check it, open a command prompt and type: NET USER GUEST
Should return a line with 'Account active yes'.
Check XP Security policies:
- Access this computer from the network: add guest
- Deny logon locally: remove guest
- Network access:Sharing and security model... -> Guest only
- Deny access to this computer from the network-> check Guest is not here.

I was reading on the Belkin site that it is already set for dynamic and that is for a cable modem and sounds like I should change it to pppoe for a DSL modem. would that make the difference. It is a brand new laptop and the wireless card is on and it sees the network and works when wired, it says it is connected wirelessly but wont get on the internet when not wired. Would the pppoe thing make a differnce? Please give me some help here. Thanks

I have recently sorted out the wireless connection of a child's laptop to a wireless printer. It works perfectly. Howver, the parent's, wired, desktop computer does not now print. No changes were made to the desktop , which was working fine before this.. I am not at the location now but are there any ideas why this should suddenly occur. Both computers are running XP.

A:Wireless printer not printing from wired computer after connection by wireless lapto

Wireless printers can be connected both by USB and wireless simultaneously. However, I have come across many that say they should but don't do so easily. Sometimes they have to be setup wireless first then USB and others vice versa..
In my opinion, it is probably the best option to add the printer to the desktop through the network. Then there should be no problems with setup. Hope that helps..

I will start this off by freely admitting I'm not great with computers and usually don't know what I'm talking about.

I have an Acer Aspire 4720Z laptop.
I recently wiped it clean and installed Windows XP, and have not been able to connect to wireless internet ever since.
I used the Acer website to download the drivers, extracted all the files, etc.

When I open Intel PROSet/Wireless, I get an error message that it is "unable to detect a supported wireless adapter. Please install a supported adapter."

Also, Intel PROSet/Wireless does not appear on my Device Manager. (The only things that are listed under "Network adapters" is 1394 Net Adapter and Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet.) I feel like that's probably part of the problem, even if I'm not sure why, haha.

What can I do to get my wireless access back?

Hey to TSG!!

I need help in this one. My Bluetooth used to capture others (with no password) wireless networks but if I do extensive use on it, it will not work. For one wireless network, it gets connected but nothing appears and for another, it doesnt get connected at all though it used to. They all are in low signal but they used to work fine!

I dont know what to do right now. Is my bluetooth screwed up? I used to download large files (more than 500 mb) before but now it doesnt get connected.

Please tell me what to do firstly!

Hey everyone,
I got a new HP laptop running Windows 7. When I turn on my laptop, my wireless is off. So I click on F12 (my wireless button), to activate my wireless. The orange light turns blue. Even though the light indicates that my wireless is on, I have to go to device manager>networking>802.11n>advanced then activate my radio for my laptop to pick up the wireless signals. The problem is that I have to do this every time I turn on my laptop, and its getting quite repetitive. Please give me instructions on how to allow the Laptop to do this automatically, rather than me doing it manually on every start up.
Thank You

Have you tried checking the various setting in the network folder? Also, your router has a configuration web page doesnt it? a page you would go to; in order to change the router settings? If so, log into that page and check the router settings. Also; even though the router is new I believe you mentioned; there might be a firmware upgrade for the router that you should be able to easily check for. Im not familiar with the type of router you have. but you should be able to get into the settings fairly easily.

My old wireless was working fine, I simply updated my internet to faster speed and so I updated my router and modem hardware. I've consulted online manuals but cannot find the locations I'm told to go to enter new WPA-PSk codes for the new router. The wired internet is working fine and the XBOX & my phone shows a listing for my new router however I get an error message when entering the passcode from the router - my guess is that my desktop still has the old router info - I just can't find where to enter the new.

A:Solved: Updated Wireless Hardware on Windows XP Desktop - Can't get new wireless to w

Delete the wireless profile and scan for your network. When you try to connect you will be prompted for the WPA passphrase.

If that doesn't work disable encryption on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Hi all,
I just connected with WiMax, problem is I have the wimax wireless router in the house(all good).

But my office is in the garage! I was hoping to run an ethernet cable from WiMax Zylex router to my Belkin Wireless Router.

Is this the way to go about, sharing my internet connection? Also can anyone
give me any pointers on how to go about doing this.


A:Connect WiMax wireless (Zylex) with my Belkin N wireless router

I am no expert but will try to help. If I have understood you correctly, you only require the one router.
If the router in the house is a wireless router and your computer in your office is equipped for Wi-fi you could connect wirelessly. You will need the access code for the router when you try to connect. I think it will be a WEP or a WPA PSK code.
Otherwise run a ethernet cable from your house router to your office and connect it direct to your office computer (not too a second router) This is probably the safest method anyway if you do not need wireless.
You will then need to set up a network by going to "Control Panel" and clicking on "Network Setup Wizard" and following the instructions.
Hope that is of some help to you.

In a few days time I will be changing my ISP in the UK from Sky to BT.

BT are providing me with their newest wireless router free of charge as part of the deal and I'll be using that to set up my wireless network, which will consist of an HP Pavilion desktop, a Toshiba laptop, a Sony Vaio laptop, an HP wireless printer and a Samsung HDTV.

This means my Sky wireless router is surplus to requirements, so I was wondering if I could convert it to a wireless access point to improve the range of my BT wireless network.

If so, how do I go about it?

I've read a couple of supposedly easy-to-understand articles on Google and have to say they left me more confused than ever.

Is there a straightforward way of doing this?

I randomly pick the above. It has 2 antenna. Is this card gives a better signal than a motherboard that has an embedded Wifi module?

because the situation I was at today is, these folks has a toshiba all in 1, which comes with an embedded wifi module in that All in 1. The wireless router/Cable modem is at the basement, and some times they lost signal.

So I'm thinking of something like Linksys WRT1900AC that has 4 antenna, and perhaps source out a signal booster. But if that does not work, it would be time to get a real PC that c/w PCI wireless card.

Do you guys think there is a sizeable gain on signal strength on these PCI wireless card vs. embedded Wifi module on motherboard?

A:Does PCI wireless card has better signal than embedded wireless module inside PC

I would try power over Ethernet. But if you must use wifi the all in one probably has its antenna around the screen. I would look at range entenders. They are getting cheap where they just act as an access point and will allow you to extend their coverage

I just purchased a wireless router (Linksys) to set up as a wireless access point connected via an ethernet cable to another Linksys wireless router that is connected to my DSL modem. I know I need to connect LAN port to LAN port, but do I need a "straight through" or a "switched/crossover" cable? As I have done some reading, some directions say straight, others say switched, some don't say at all. I just want to be sure I don't have a cabling issue. Thanks in advance for any information.

A:Solved: Connecting Wireless access point and wireless router

Well, a crossover cable will certainly work. If either end of the routers have auto-MDX ports, a straight patch cable will work as well.
