I just moved to Qwest DSL I previously had cable through midco. After getting a netgear modem I have been having issues were my PS3 will no longer connect to my laptop as a media server and my laptop will always loose connectivity to the network when the PS3 attempts to connect or search for a media server. No settings have been changed the only thing different is the netgear modem. Everything worked as advertised before. With the Belkin I was consistently being punted from the network with any kind of stress put on it (webpage, download etc), that seems to have calmed down with the Linksys other than when I try and connect as a media server. I am using channel 10 (have tried 1, 3, 6 and 6). I have a Linksys E2500 (rev 1.xx) and previous to it I was using a Belkin F5D8235-4 (rev 2033) both routers have identical issues. I have tested with a known good cable and tried 2 other brand new ones on top of that one. The netgear is a DM111PSPV2. Obviously to my knowledge everything is plugged in correctly phoneline->modem->yellow WAN port. All firmwares are updated. mediashare settings are basically open with no limitations. Using WPA2-PSK AES encryption was using WEP befor (could there be an incompatability issue?) The Belkin has a access point mode. Do I need to force it into being an access point for the netgear to work correctly? I have never had to set one up that way...and the new Linksys doesn't have that option to my knowledge I would like to use the Linksys if at all possible since it is new and a good bit quicker than the Belkin.
