Playstation 3 can't find my wireless ssid

I've just recently set up internet in my new house (my provider is talktalk) and I've been trying to set up the internet so I can access the playstation network. Unfortunately my ps3 won't find my SSID tag when I scan for availible networks. I've tried going through the custom part and entering it all manually but I've had no such luck. If any help could be given that would be awesome as playing Demon's Souls on your own is a lonely experience. 

 

Vinnie.

Go into your routers admin panel and make sure that the wireless type b/g is enabled. Most routers broadcast in b/g/n though some modern ones only broadcast in n/a/c(draft) by default.

You might need to go into the advanced settings to change this, it may be simply listed as "Automatic" by default.

Ok I've seen it is broadcasting in b/g/n. I've changed it to just b/g, I'll see if that works, thanks!

Ah, thanks for telling me to go the admin panel, the broadcast was fine but I changed the WPA/WPA2 mixed mode to just WPA2 and that seemed to work.
