Tip & How-To about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
In this guide I will go over the steps you need to take in order to connect your Ps3 to the internet either wired or wireless.
-Your home router should be configured for wireless and you should know your wireless routers security information. Make sure an Ethernet cable is not connected to the PS3.
-Turn on your console and select Network Settings under the Settings option in the main menu.
-Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and then select Yes when prompted.
-For the installation type select "Easy"
-Select "Wireless" when prompted for your connection type.
-Select "Scan". Your system will scan and show all available wireless access points within range.
-Select your home access point from the list.
-Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings
Make sure to select Test Connection to make sure the connection is working properly.
You will have the same steps as a wireless connection, except once you select "Easy", you will be prompted for your wired connection settings. Normally, in a home environment, you are using DCHP and the IP address as well as DNS information is all obtained automatically from your router.
Be sure to select Test Connection afterwards
Ok. You should now be connected to the internet. Enjoy!
