I recently changed my wirless router from the E4200 to the E4200v2. As far as I know, I have the same settings on the E4200v2 as I did on the E4200. My PS3 will not connect to my wireless network via the E4200v2. I even retyped in my network information (SSID and password) onto the PS3. Still "no joy."
Any known issues with the E4200v2 and the PS3? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Not sure what you mean by deleting the Network. I've attempted to retype the SSID and password multiple times (on the PS3) with no success.
Settings on the E4200v2:
Any other suggestions? Thank you.

Sorry, I thought I remembered there being a feature to delete saved networks. That must be the PSP only.
Try enabling SSID broadcast and double check to make sure you have the right mac address in the mac address filter list.

I have also removed the PS3 MAC address from the E4200v2, saved the settings, add the PS3 MAC address to the E4200v2, and saved the settings.
Attempted to type in the wireless network information back onto the PS3. PS3 still can not connect to the E4200v2.

For testing purposes, I enabled the SSID broacasting and removed the security requirements to see if the PS3 would connect to the E4200v2. Success!
But of course, I am not going to leave my wireless network unsecure and with its SSID broacasting. Unfortunately, when I changed my E4200v2 back to "normal" (SSID disabled, WPA2/WPA mixed mode, and MAC Filtering), the PS3 does not connect.
I am not sure what is happening. The PS3 has the latest OS (version 4.1). And I have verified that the SSID, type of security, and security password is correct on the PS3...

Like I said (not sure if you saw my post), try enabling the SSID broadcast and use WPA2 (or at the very least WPA security). Contrary to popular belief, preventing the SSID from being broadcasted doesn't make your network invisible.

The only setting I changed: SSID is now broadcasting. All other settings remained the same: security mode, password, MAC filtering.
Now the PS3 can connect to my Wi-Fi via the E4200v2. Strange...

I just brought home an EA4500 and had the same issue with the PS3. If the SSID is broadcast OR the MAC filtering is not used, then it works. However if I disable SSID broadcast and apply MAC filtering (with the PS3 in the list), then the PS3 fails to see the network.
I guess I'll broadcast the SSID, but I would prefer to hide it like I've been doing with my prior wireless router.
