Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Ok my wired connection isnt working. i have a wired connection but it is conected to my PC and when im ready to play online it wont let me. I just wanna take the wired connection and hook it up to my ps3: note: it was working before i got my PC. So Please Somebody Help Me!!!
If your PS3 is Networked upto Your PC to use the internet connection, You have to allow the PC to share its Internet connection with yout PC, Do this By going into Network settings, Checking the properties of your LAN card in your PC. and clicking on, "share my internet". This should alleviate that problem..
If your PS3's Wired connection isnt working. but your PC one is, Try moving your PS3 Lan cable into one of the other Free LAN Ports (if available) or Try Switching the PC cable over to the PS3's Port in the Router, and Visa-Versa !

With networking devices if you are switching the cable from on device to another then alot of times you have to restart the device.
What you need to do is with your PS3 turned off connect your wired cable. Next power off your modem (if you have a router to will want to turn it off too). Now turn back on the modem and wait about 2 minutes (Note if you have a router too after the 2 minutes you will turn on the router and wait another 2 minutes). After you have waited the 2 minutes turn back on your PS3 and it shoudl let you connect to the Internet.
The reason for the time wait is networking devices need a varying amount of time to connect with new devices. So if you wait the 2 minutes this will give your devices the time needed to connect. You may find that with you devices the reset time is faster. Also note if you have one cable coming out of your modem you some times have to wait on your ISP to reset the connection and this can take some time. So if you do not already have a router I would recommend that you get one. Getting a router should also resolve the issue that you are having.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
