I have a linksys wireless router, and two computers hardwired to it. But, every time my PS3 (wireless) connects it kicks us off temporarily. Someone told me I might have to assign ports.!? Is that correct, and how?

If you have XP or Vista & have installed the software that came with your Linsys router uninstall ALL of it from any computer it's on.
[The Linksys software causes a conflict with the Windows Wireless connection.]

Open Internet Explorer
Type in & click the go button.

If you haven't already set a password for the router the default name should be administrator & the default password should be admin

If you haven't changed them in the router settings at least password
When it opens click on Wireless
Set the Wireless Network Mode to Mixed

If you haven't already set the Wireless Security click on it
The easy way,

Set the Security Mode to WPA Personal
WPA Alogorithms TKIP
WPA Sharwd Key [If one isn't shown create a key using a single number,4 letters,single number,4 letters,2 numbers,4 letters, EXAMPLE: 4only7iget23mine
Be sure to write the number down . you WILL need it to get your wireless to connect.

Without security set anybody can connect using your wireless.
Without security a person could log in to your router, set a WAP key, set a administrator password & preveny you from using your own router !
