There are two way basically, you can either a) hook you PS3 up directly to your router or modem using a CAT-5 cable (RJ-45 or regular old internet cable, whatever you want to call it) or b) hook up to the internet using the built in wireless adapter of the PS3. (provide of course, that you have wireless in range of your PS3)
If you are in your PS3's menu, go to settings and then network settings. You should be able to figure the rest out from there because it basically walks you through it.

Hope that helps

Sorry if the answer seems vague... but the question was a little vague as well, just doin' my best.

What to do if my laptop has problems connecting to internet and messages says proxy service refuses connection?

You need to let us know how are you connecting to the internet? Is this a home connection using a cable or wifi? What type of internet connection? (cable, DSL, fiber)? Most folks don't need a proxy service and it is not on by default.

I m having samsung monte and when i try to start m.facebook it cannot connect to the internet .also i m not using wifi

You need to be connected to the internet first. You need to connect to a Wifi hotspot by turning on Wifi on your phone, and connecting. Your phone says it can't connect because you have no active internet connection.
Sorry I can't provide much more detail, but the reason is because everyone's internet router is different and you need to know the password.
Good luck!

No picture or sound on ordinary TV after hooking up with HD TV

You system is still out-putting through the HDMI cable. Press & hold the "on" button after the system is already on, it should go back to regular factory settings & show up on your screen.

Internet connection of psp

To connect to the internet on your PSP, you need a Wireless Router or Wireless Access Point. Once you have a wireless one, you should know the name of your router. That's what an SSID (Service Set Identifier) is.
Once you know this information you should be able to find your router on your PSP. Once you do you should have a password on your router so no one you don't know can use your internet. When adding a connection on your PSP you will also need to enter the password for your router. You can use WEP, WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES). WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES) have very high security and WEP has a lower security.
Once you have added your connection, just type an address and surf! Not all websites will load because some require too much memory.

Assuming you have Official SONY PSP Firmware, Update to the latest version by going to Settings>Network Update. Locate your router and use it as the network connection.
Download the needed files and update by going to Game>Memory Stick>PSP Update.

Once you finish Update, go to Network>Internet Radio>About Internet radio. It will take you to a website to download the files needed and will install to your Memory Stick.

To put music on your Memory Stick, the Music must be MP3, AAC, M4A or WMA format.
Open your memory stick on your computer by pluggin in a USB cable to your PSP and going to Network>USB Connection or you can put the memory stick in a card reader.
Once in the root of your memory stick, there should be a folder called "Music". Put your music in there or in one more folder inside that. Two folders inside of each other will not be playable.

Place videos in the "Video" folder on the root of your memory stick.
Videos need to be MP4 format. 368X208 Highest MPEG4 Codec, or 480X272 x264 or AVC codec.

Need a converter?

Its a free and very good converter. Try it
