Rear Speakers Interfering with PS3 and Laptop Wifi

I briefly saw that there was a thread created about this issue but didn't find much of an answer and wasn't sure if a more definitive solution was found.

I bought the Samsung HT-420 (5.1 Surround Sound with Rear Wireless Speakers). After hooking everything up I tried logging into my PS3 account and could not do so - I checked the internet connection and could not establish one through the PS3 dashboard (could not obtain my IP address). I checked my laptop for a connection and could not achieve a connection there as well.

I shut down my Blu-Ray player, unplugged the Wireless sender, and I was able to achieve a connection on my PS3 and my laptop. Plugged back in the Wireless sender and turned back on the Blu-Ray player and I couldn't establish the connection again.

I am using a Linksys - Wireless-N Router with 4-Port Switch.

Any ideas/suggestions on what to do from here?
