I've been unable to connect to PSN lately and I'm getting a little anxious to play. I need a router that can work with a computer, 2 laptops, an xbox 360 and a ps3 (Not all at the same time). Just an FYI, I have DSL.
My current is a belkin wireless g router 802.11g.
I have been thinking about 2: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000LIFB7S/ref=dp_olp_new_map?ie=UTF8&condition=new http://www.amazon.com/Cisco-Linksys-WRT310N-Wireless-N-Gigabit-Router/dp/B000Z3XXR4
Can you guys help me out? My limit is 100$ if you can suggest a better one. Or, if it is something I can fix, please tell me how.
The Ps3 doesn't support wireless N routers. You can only use wireless G. I use linksys cisco what ever (The newest wireless G one) You'll need a router with switches to run a wire into your system(s). Don't bother with wireless gaming. I have 2 wireless laptops and my wired ps3 all on the net at the same time with no problem and I'm on 1 meg dsl.
I used to use that router, and it connects to PSN fine, but you need to port forward all the recommended ports. It's also important to know whether you specified a username and password in the WAN settings, or whether your modem offers the router an IP automatically.
If it can be avoided, you want the router to connect using a user/pass, as the modem itself may have its own firewall and gateway.
