    Unable to setup wireless home network


    I had a wireless home set up before my upgrade to Windows 8 now is gone and can not set up again. Also is there any way of connecting my PS3 to the network?

    Welcome to the forum Richard, do you have a router? If yes, you can connect your PS3. Go into your ipv4 settings for your adapter and add the router address (default gateway) in the advanced button. You should be able to connect.
