You should be able log into the router's Admin settings and enable your wireless settings from there. Typically, you can access this section by using your web browser and going to 192.168.1.1 then supplying Admin as the username and either password as the password or leave that field blank. You may have also modified these at an earlier time.

If that IP address isn't correct for your router, open up Command Prompt (Start > Run > type: cmd) and type in ipconfig /all Look for an IP address next to Default Gateway and that is your router's IP address.

If you can't gain access to the Admin settings, either consult your router's manual for the default login settings or find the tiny button on the back of the router and press it with a paperclip for 30 seconds. That will reset all the defaults for the router.

The OP is having trouble connecting to the router with an iPhone and PS3. Good thought, but I believe it's a router issue and no mention of a laptop.

Have you tried turning the router off for about half a minute?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hold the reset button on the back with a paper clip until it resets itself. This will restore it to factory settings. Push the wifi button (some routers have an on/off switch on top of it) on (Light) or off (No Light). Use the WPS push button if applicable. If it doesn't work by then type 192.168.0.1 with a device plugged straight into it, and access your wifi settings with either login: admin, admin or login: admin, password.
