    YOU NEED FW 1.7 in order for this to work!





    1. Update the firmware on your PS3
    This can be achieved from GameOS with the Software Update function in settings.

    2. Download the new PS3 wifi enabled kernel:
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=H2I61GXI


    3. Install the new kernel
    rpm -ivh /path/to/kernel-ps3-2.6.16-20070425.ydl.3.ppc64.rpm

    4. Edit /etc/kboot.conf
    Take your default kernel line, and make a copy of it and then modify
    the original line to point to the new kernel.

    For example, if your default kernel line is:
    ydl='/dev/sda1:/vmlinux-2.6.16-20061110.ydl.2ps3 initrd=/dev/sda1:/initrd-2.6.16-20061110.ydl.2ps3.img root=/dev/sda2 video=ps3fb:mode:3 rhgb'

    The new section would like this:
    ydl='/dev/sda1:/vmlinux-2.6.16-20070425.ydl.3ps3 initrd=/dev/sda1:/initrd-2.6.16-20070425.ydl.3ps3.img root=/dev/sda2 init=/sbin/init video=ps3fb:mode:3 rhgb'
    oldydl='/dev/sda1:/vmlinux-2.6.16-20061110.ydl.2ps3 initrd=/dev/sda1:/initrd-2.6.16-20061110.ydl.2ps3.img root=/dev/sda2 video=ps3fb:mode:3 rhgb'

    Where oldydl is your original kernel.

    5. Reboot

    6. Configuring Wireless
    a) Unplug the ethernet cable, eth0 is both the wired and wireless
    Ethernet port on PS3s.
    b) Launch system-config-network (Network in the Settings menu)
    c) Delete the eth0 (gelic_net) interface.
    d) Create a Wireless connection.
    e) You may now configure that wireless connection as you would with
    other YDL versions. One note here that confused me when I did this
    was that the ESSID specified as "Auto", when I actually needed to
    remove that and select the Auto radio button.
    f) You can now activate the interface.

    7. Enjoy your new wireless enabled PS3.

    I love video tuts but I don't make them.

    Reasons why I don't do video tut.

    1.) I don't go to this site when I'm home. (not that much... right now, I'm leaving work.)
    2.) I don't have PS3 at work.
    3.) My favorite. I'm too lazy.

    Usually, if you follow the steps properly you wouldn't have any problems.
