what I want to hear is if the bluetooth is working properly, if you can sync controllers and bd accessories just fine, I doubt that the wireless card is broken. Check the internal antenna on PS3, also check the router settings, some users leaves the 2.4ghz band disabled and stick with 5ghz one.
Bluetooth works fine, my controller hasn't disconnected ever. But if it's a problem with a router's configuration, why does the ps3's wi-fi light indicator shut off completely? It doesn't let me scan for access points or use wi-fi at all. If it was a router problem/setting, the wi-fi light should still go on when I scan for access points.
i hope you also read the part that he also a problem on wired connection with same problem. you can try swapping the wifi/blutooth module but im sure you will be wasting money for trying that, unless you are willing to spend some money on a router related problems.
I have just swapped the wireless board. I didn't see any damages on the board, but there was some dust collecting. I am going to test the wireless for around a week before deciding whether swapping fixed my problem
We were having router problems before, but then we upgraded to wireless N and havnt had any problems with any devices ever since. I always get full bars of signal too
Swapping the wireless boards was free, because I have a spare ps3 that is broken and can be used for parts
Also, if it was a router problem, why does the wifi stop working when i tether it to my laptop?
