Ps3 error code 80029020


Make sure UPnP is enabled on the PS3 and Router.
Place the PS3 in the DMZ of the router or find the appropriate ports to forward to the PS3's connecting IP (set to static in the PS3 if you have it setting dynamicly in the PS3 for either)
If this does not help, do a forum search there are a ton of answers for this on on the Network board here.

When playing ps3 game live i get kicked off the games what is going on


Are you running the live game play through the internal WiFi card or a wired Ethernet cable? If you can try hooking up an Ethernet cable and it solves the problem, you are getting interference from something and you'll have to move the PS3 closer to your router or just try to keep it on the Ethernet cable for online play. That's what I use because it is much more reliable and much faster than WiFi.

If you are running with an Ethernet cable and you are still having problems, the problem may not be with your PS3 but with your router or internet connection. Try moving the cable to another outlet on the router. Check your network settings on the PS3 amd try to set up the network to automatically detect settings.

Depending on the game, you may be kicked off by other users in the game. I've had that happen a couple times because everyone's a critic.

I hope this helps. Good luck and have fun online! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

Trying to upgrade my ps3, with dial-up.


to do this you would need to enable your pc with ICS (Internet connection sharing) and connect an ethernet cable from your pc to ps3. You will need windows xp or vista to do this.

A tutorial can be found here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314066

Should you need either a network card for your pc or ethernet cable these can be cheaply found on ebay.

However your PS3's connection to the internet will be dreadfully slow and will most likley have extremely bad lag when playing online.

Ps3 ethernet


The easiest way would be to disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the PS3. The PS3 doesn't care if it shares a cable as it really only meeds one when you want to be online. There is no setting for the "cable" all you do is unplug from the back of your computer and then plug it into the PS3; reverse when you are finished playing.

I hope this answers your question.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
