About 2 half weeks ago, my brother replaced the old router with a new one. I got everything from PC, X1, PS4, Phone and the PS3 connected. However, a few days ago, due to bad connection, pretty much everything cut off. However, now that everything is back to normal, i have everything connected other than the PS3. Now because i'm upstairs, i use wifi. I used to use a cable, but my brother cut the 30meter one many many years ago, so since then, i wont use cable..

Everytime i scan for wireless, i find every signal down the road other than our one at home. The network is virgin media. 90% of the time, it picks up sky, the other times its either Virgin Media which states its not supported or its VM****** which is supported, just happens to not be our router.

I'm scratching my head as to whats causing the PS3 to not find the router. Is anyone else having the same issue. Like i said up above, everything else is able to find it, even the PS4. I even moved the PS3 super close to the router and it still can't pick it up.

Any info would be great. Thanks :)

@Mickeyminime: ps3 supports wireless b/g, maybe the router is set to n/ax only?
