Windows 7: PS3 Problem

25 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7

When I tell it to start the service it just says that it started and stopped and that it does this when not in use. Does that mean it's not seeing my PS3's attempt to connect to the net?

Just to add, I checked the wireless connection and the signal strength is only 42% which is why I prefer wired for this.

If you want to try wireless again, change the channel it is set for, for radio, in the router configuration page. Also make sure signal strength (or transmit power) is set to 100%. Set it for short preamble too.

As for the wired like you're trying now - in services, before you start ICS - set these to automatic and start them if they are not already:

Base Filtering Engine
Network Connections
Remote Access Connection Manager
Windows Management Instrumentation

If you still can not start the ICS service, assign the ip addresses manually as I previously outlined on the PS3 and PC. Then try to enable the ICS service to start.

If you have a 3rd party firewall or antivirus on the PC, disable them and reboot to test if you still are having troubles.

But ya, try the wireless suggestions if you'd like.

Putting the wired idea to one side, I changed the preamble mode to short and the strength dropped to 22%. I couldn't find signal strength (or transmit power) in the netgear settings. Any ideas?
