    I have the same problem. I bought a wireless router to connect with my ps3 but I couldn't because it kept saying the ip address was not found or was timed out. Sometimes though it would work but for 5 minutes or an hour but then the internet on my computer wouldn't work. Are there any wireless routers specificly desined for usb modems or should they all work?

Recommendation:

Get a Modem and a Router in order for both computer and PS3 to be online at the same time.

PS3 assumes that it is connected to a router/gateway and is not designed to have a modem directly connected to it as would need additional hardware/chips incorporated.

I have bought sony ps3 yestarday.I want to connect it to interet through usb internet modem.Is it possible?


No. Unfortunately the PS3 has to be connected to the internet either through a wireless router or an ethernet cable (the rectangle shaped ones, not the square DSL/Dial up/phone cord ones).

Ps3 was fine on line this morning but tonight in will not go on line and says error 80130182 i am using a ethernet cable to try and connect can you help ?


Hello, this error means you basically can't get connected to Internet. It's due probably to an IP conflict on your local LAN. Try to do the following: - switch your PS3 off - switch any device connected to your local LAN (laptops, desktops, iphones, etc..) - unplug power cable from your modem/router - unplug ethernet cable from both PS3 and modem/router - wait 1 minute, plug everything right back - switch your PS3 on and see if this error has gone.
Good luck, Peter_Rei

Error code 51420-- wii is hooked via usb to modem and unable to connect


This is directly from the Nintendo Tech Support Site

Error Code: 51420 The Wii console is not able to connect to your wired router or modem.
  1. If your connection worked previously, check to see if thereis a Wii System Update that you have not aquired. To get the latest WiiSystem Update:
    1. From the Wii's main menu, select the Wii icon along the bottom left of the screen.
    2. Select "Wii Settings".
    3. Click the left arrow to get to Wii System Settings 3
    4. Choose "Wii System Update"
    5. Choose "Yes" to connect to the internet and perform a Wii system update.

  2. Make sure that you are using the Wii LAN Adapter made by Nintendo (click here for a picture and connection steps). LAN adapters not made by Nintendo likely will not work with the Wii console.
  3. Check to make sure you are not running the Wii LAN Adapterfrom a USB hub (a device that connects multiple USB products through asingle device), as this will likely not work. Connect the USB Connectordirectly to the modem or router.

  4. Ensure that the Wii LAN Adapter setup is correct, and that the Wii LAN Adapter was connected with the console turned off. For step by step connection instructions, please click here.

  5. Check to see if the ethernet cable you are using is not working properly, by connecting another ethernet cable from your router/modem to the Wii LAN Adapter. If the connection works using a different cable, then the problem was with the first cable.

  6. Ifpossible, try another Wii LAN Adapter. If you are unable to try anotherWii LAN Adapter, or are still receiving this error code, please call1-800-255-3700 for assistance.

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.
