You can hook up the ps3 directly to a router or a modem but there is no need to have it hooked up to an actual computer or laptop. you have to have an internet connection with a router/modem to at least HAVE the ABILITY to get online play.

I am needing to connect to the internet wirelessly for my PS3


Go to the"'settings" menu, then "Network Settings" Click the "ok" . Now Select " easy " and the playstation will take you through the rest. Chose "Automatic" when it is offered. This will take you though set up. When you are done, still under "Network Settings" run an internet connection test.

Just for your info wireless connections don't always work too well with PS3 systems. If you have a hard time staying connected durring on line play you may have to switch to a wired connection.

Good Luck. On line play is a BLAST!

My Ps3 is a 320gb slim. I've only had it for a few days. It won't support vudu hd or hdx movies. I have the same pronlem with netflix. It says itis the internet connection, however, whenever I ran the vudu...


Make sure the ps3 can run those kind of formats. I haven't played with my ps3 for a while now, but from the last time I had check it couldn't run those formats. Just check on Playstations website again to make sure. Example. PS3 doesn't run .ram files but on the laptop it uses real media player to run .ram.

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

The game you are playing should give you the option to make a local game. Not all games have that feature

Need help with ps3 internet hook up


The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
Goto settings
Goto network settings
Goto network connection, select enable
Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
Select wired or wireless
For wireless use scan or enter manually
Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.
