Make sure the same SSID and network key is configured on your PS3's wireless settings. To get the SSID and network key do the following steps.

1. Open your Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the Address Bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. Type admin on the password, leave it blank for username. If admin password doesn't work, type your own password.
3. When you get to the Setup page of the router, go to Wireless tab. Take not of the SSID or the Wireless Network Name.
4. Now click the sub-tab Wireless Security that's under the Wireless tab. Take note of the Security Mode. If it is WPA-Personal, take note of the Shared Key or Passphrase. If the Security Mode is WEP, take note of the WEP key # 1.

5. Now all you need to do is access the Wireless Settings of your PS3 and configure manually the SSID and the Security Key. Then reboot the router and PS3. That should do it.

SOURCE: my wireless network just stopped working

The best thing to do here is to reset the router and reconfigure it back, to reset the router just press and hold the reset button of it for 10 seconds and then after that power off the router for 10 seconds and then reconfigure it back....

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

Cant connect to wireless network on my ps3


Hello,
First off you have a wireless router hooked up to your ISP correct.
anually set a static IP for your wireless connection (When going through the network setup in Network Settings --> Internet Connection Settings (wireless), choose Custom instead of Easy when the page asking for either appears).
Set the IP address to something outside your DHCP range. e.g. 192.168.0.5 (for dlink router) or 192.168.1.5 (Linksys router)Default gateway should be the IP of your router. For dlink, this should be 192.168.0.1 and Linksys should be 192.168.1.1DNS Server can be the same as your default gateway, mentioned above.
Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0.If you're using some sort of encryption (WEP, WAP, etc), set it in there as well when it asks to do so.
And that should get you going. I actually haven't done this on the ps3, but its my info from experience with regular pc to pc networking.
Also If you haven't tried this already, change the wireless channel from 6, to 1 or 11 in your router and wireless consoles.
If all else fails, try this http://www.clanbluntforce.com/forum/index.php?topic=864.0

Cant find out how to get my ps3 with internet


if you have wireless you can hook it up that way.
if you have wired or DSL network you can hook it up that way too.
in addition you need a playstation network user account.

to hook up your ps3 to the net go to settings, network connection and choose custom network connection then it will show you wireless or wired then choose whatever you have. then just go through and dont change any settings until it runs the connection test then it should work

REMEMBER TO GET PLAYSTATION NETWORK ACCOUNT IN THE PLAYSTATION STORE AFTER YOU SET IT UP!!!!!

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.

Ps3 help


OK, so i just went through this whole deal and its actually not too hard, and i gaurentee you will never have to do it again...
1) hook your ps3 as a wired connection to your router, you may need to go buy a really long cable to do this if you cant move your router in distance.
2) connect it automatically through the setup and it should work fine and connect, if not then i think your fucked.
3) go to network setting > setting and connection status list, write down all the info you can which is shows.
4) unplug the LAN cable, and go back to wireless setup.
5) do a manual setup for IP settings, and type in all the info you have, but DONT type in a WEP or WPA... EVEN IF YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ONE (mine has one but i didnt need it, but if it doesnt work the first time then hell try your passkey)
6) click enter and test connection and it should work!!
hope this helps cuz i see alot of people asking the same question and i had to spend 3 hours figuring it out for myself.
