Cant get online


Before you can go online on the PS3, there is need for you to have either a wireless lan network or a wired network with an ethernet cable.
If you are using a wireless network, here is how you go about it
  1. Make sure your wireless Internet connection is active and at full strength. Unplug the PS3's Ethernet cable if it is plugged into the system.
  2. Turn on the Playstation 3 game console and select "Network Settings" under the "Settings" option in the main menu.
  3. Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and select "Yes" when the system displays a new screen saying you will be disconnected from the Internet.
  4. Select "Easy" on the next screen that asks what type of installation you want to use.
  5. Select "Wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.
  6. Select "Scan" on the next screen.The system will search for all available Internet connections in the area.
  7. Select your home Internet connection when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options. Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings.
  8. Test the connection by selecting the "Test Connection" option. If the connection has been made, your network information will appear on the screen.
If you are using a wired connection. just go over the same steps but select the wired connection instead of the wireless connection.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information.

I have connected my PS3 to my computer using an ethernet cable, but it keeps saying its not plugged in on the screen.


if you're trying to have internet connection on your ps3, you're not supposed to connect it to your computer, you need to connect it to your internet modem using either ethernet cable or wireless. hope it helps.

Trying to upgrade my ps3, with dial-up.


to do this you would need to enable your pc with ICS (Internet connection sharing) and connect an ethernet cable from your pc to ps3. You will need windows xp or vista to do this.

A tutorial can be found here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314066

Should you need either a network card for your pc or ethernet cable these can be cheaply found on ebay.

However your PS3's connection to the internet will be dreadfully slow and will most likley have extremely bad lag when playing online.

Ps3 wired connection prob.


I can't be certain, but does your ISP rewuire the hardware connecting to it to have a certain MAC address (i.e. the one used to first 'activate' the Internet connection)? If so you may need to 'clone' the MAC address to get online either by a router or some other method.

Ps3 wireless


It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
