heres the situation: I have a linksys router and my laptop is able to pick up the signal and function with no problems, but I cant get it to work on my ps3 and ds. When my computer is ON, wifi works with ps3/ds. When my computer is OFF (3 lights still on 2wire), my ps3 and ds are unable to pick up the linksys router because it doesnt appear when I search for an access point. When I turn my comp ON, and then OFF, ps3 and ds can get a signal for about 20mins and then it stops working. Whats the deal. :thumbsup:

Are you using a 2wire modem and a linksys router? That is pretty odd... Are you sure your devices aren't trying to use the computer as an access point? a little more explaination of your network might help too..
