I would like to see if with the 40, 60, or 80Gb or wireless adapted 20Gb PS3 if there is any apparent router communication problem. If you prefer to use hardwired ethernet that is your preference, but if you could help other AVS members out that would be awesome. If you have a wireless router, see if you can maintain a connection.
If you could please post the router type/model to help futher AVS wireless router/PS3 users check for compatibility.
Thanks in advance.UPDATE - SSID Broadcast Alert!
According to protoboard's post
- he has found a fix for the disconnect/connect issue (repeated connects/disconnects with about 15-30 second intervals) with the linksys wireless b router by turning of the routers broadcast of the SSID information. Since then he has had no disconnects. He has made it aware to Sony as have I in a phone call today via a followup to my orginal problem. This may or may not work for other routers that have fallen into the not working category.
This has apparently fixed the problem with a netgear (b) router as well.UPDATE - Changed Categories - Working

After reading many posts on the Playstation forums and here at AVS, I felt it was necessary to update this thread. At the time of FW 1.8 release on 5/24/07 many Linksys wireless router users were once again stricken with a disconnect issue. As it turns out the problem originated in the implementation of the media sharing feature of the PS3. There 2 are potential solutions depending upon your situation. ONE: disable the media sharing feature on the PS3 if you don't plan to use it. TWO: disable UPnP in the router. For most people just turning off UPnP solved the issue. Others went on to finally set up a static IP for the PS3 (many of us had already done that) and then enable DMZ in the router for the PS3 IP and in some cases that helped as well. Until Sony or Linksys creates a fix - these are the possible workarounds.
If you have the WRT54G router, there is a new firmware that may fix some of these issues: Linksys WRT54G update firmware
