SOURCE: wont connect to wi fi

This used to happen to me alot when connection was bad due to distance form the router. If your router is far away, find a way to move it closer. Reset the connection settings on the PS3 and do automatic search then just enter the WEP again

Had my ps3 for year and half now, never played online (80710102)

Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.

Ps3 keeps on saying ip timed out

your ip settings are most likely wrong, check your desktop pc settings

here is how

start -> run -> cmd -> ipconfig

note, ipaddress, subnet, gateway

if your desktops ip is similiar to 192.168.1. 2 to 254
then set your ps3's ip as for example
just a number between 2 and 254 (the 1 is used by router) witch isnt used.

your address might show for example or a more complex ip like if this is the case set the ps3 on automatically get ipaddress and dns server.

if you need any help let me know. Good luck.

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.
