Do you mean that you're trying to enable such things as file transfers with the PS3 over a Wireless network?

Well the PS3 isn't capable of full file sharing with a PC. However, you can set up a windows media server and if setup correctly the PS3 can actually play and download MP3's, Videos, and Pictures from that service.

Setting up a windows media server isn't really difficult, you've just got to set it up over your network. It's all in the PC, and the best idea is to use the Windows Live service to find the exact procedure of setting it up for your system. You can also download any needed software through that service as well.

I hope this helps you out bud. Personally I wish it would work the other way as well. I'd like to have the ability to back up my save games and system data on my PC.

For some reason I can't connect my ps3 wireless anymore. I play wireless everyday all the sudden it won't let me. I get wifi on my phone and laptop from the same router still but not my ps3. So i i...


The problem may be you need to go back into the router and configure some things for the PS3 (add to the MAC Filtering list if that is enabled, set up a custom IP address, port forwarding, etc.) and re-do your PS3's network settings to have as much info in manually as possible. You may also want to try and power cycle your internet modem and router. A lot of time just a refreshed connection will fix the issue.

Trying to connect my ps3 to my wireless router. Error code after automatic access connection says no connection.


PS3 is not finding your router.
Make sure you choose wireless network under network settings and choose scan for wireless network.
Make sure SSID on router is broadcasting and not hidden.
Make sure router is broadcasting in G or MIXED mode.
Try removing wireless security on the router (open mode) and testing to see if connection can be made.
If connection can be made without security then try with security on.
Place ps3 closer to the router or connect with ethernet cable to verify connectivity.
Verifiy router is working by connecting a laptop or other device to the internet/router.

I want to get the wireless connection to my ps3. How do i do this?


First you will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
What settings do you need to check ?
SSID ( network name )
wireless channel
wireless security type
If secured then network key or password.
To check these settings you will need to open the router set up page. This is the page where you will fin all the settings of the router.
Once you get all the settings of the router, you can try to connect to the wireless network on your PS3.
You will need to go to network settings on PS3. Go to Internet connection settings , wireless connection.
There you will find the option to connect to the network.

I want to go online with ps3 using a laptop,but but have no experiance please give exact instuctions.


you do not need your laptop to get your PS3 working.
Go to the Network settings on your PS3 and set the networking to either Wireless network if you have got that, or wirred network and the connect a cable (UTP) from the back of your PS3 to your router.

If you have no router at all, that will be very difficult to set up.

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

How do i reset our wireless network setting on my playstation 3?


On the back or side of your router their is a button that resets it to the original factory settings. Hold that button down for 5 or more seconds then release it.

Everything should be back to normal, also you will have to reconfigure that router

On the bottom of the router the user name as password might be------> user= Admin Pass=password

I'm getting a weak signal from my PS3 on my wireless network. My laptop works great on the wireless network. Advice?


Hi Samax,

I have noticed that Routers sometimes give a better signal to my neighbors than it does me in the next room. Try opening your router config screen, and setting its output to a lower DB.
