  1. Just bought new PS3 on Xmas. Trying to connect PS3 to wifi connection but not able to join the connection. I have also bought new Linksys E4200 which has been working great.

    1. You are facing the same problem on your laptop also. I think it must be issue with the router. If your router is too old then try to upgrade the firmware of the router . Also check the settings of the router.
