How do i connect to my wireless thats in my home...says connect ehernet cable my desk top is in the other room i have wireless why do i need too connect with cable


You don't.

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and once you are prompted, select "Wireless" rather than ethernet. Ethernet is only when you have the cable plugged directly into the console.

  • In order to connect your console to the internet you will need the following:
  • Laptop with WiFi
  • Ethernet cables
  • USB cable
  • Video capture card
Below are the steps involved includind some additional information:
    File Sharing
  1. Step 1 Go to Settings in the PS3 menu and scroll down to Network Settings. Go to Internet Connectionmag-glass_10x10.gif Settings and select your wireless router from the list of available connections. If the router has security, you must input your password. Internet Connection in the Network Settings list will say "Enabled" once you are connected.
  2. Step 2 Link the laptop and PS3 together through a router if you have one. Connect both the console and computer to the router with Ethernet cables. This is needed for a PS3 with 40 gigabytes of memory and that does not have WiFi.
  3. Step 3 Connect the devices directly with a USB cable. Use one of the USB-style ports the PS3 uses for its game controllers. This requires a USB cable with two thin connector plugs.
    Connecting to a Monitor
  4. Step 1 Purchase an external video capture card for your laptop. This device will connect to the computer through the USB port and will have both composite and S-video connections.
  5. Step 2 Connect the capture card to your laptop. Insert its included CD-ROM into your disc drive and install the software on it that allows the computer to recognize the card's drivers and includes a video viewing/editing application.
  6. Step 3 Attach the PS3 to the capture card using the console's RCA composite cable. Open the video application and turn the console on to view it in the program's screen.
  7. Step 4 Locate and click the application's "full screen" button to enlarge the game screen to your full monitor. THANKS. MIKE

How do i connect my ps3 to the internet if i dont have wifi?


Your PS3 supports both wired and wireless. Heres how I have mine set up, Ive been running wired since day 1. 1st- hook your ps3 up to your modem or router with an ethernet cable. {im assuming ps3 is plugged into the tv, if not hook it up}
2- go in to your network setting on ps3.. If you start at the far left go over click and all the way down. You will see network settings. click on it and go down to the 3rd option there.. Internet connection settings. You will get a pop up that says your ps3 will be disconnected from the internet if you proceed, just hit ok. It usually automatically detects if you have the ethernet cable plugged in but just in case it doesnt go ahead and select wired. after that, just select auto for everything else. You will go through about 5 questions and it will be ready to do an internet connection test. All should be well.
If that doesnt work, make sure all the cables are plugged in and try again.If you are able to connect to the internet after that but get booted off, go back into network settings again and disable the media server. Hope that helps.. Happy Gaming

PS3 internet problem


Hi, best way to connect the PS3 is to buy a router, wireless or wired router. and if you go for a wired one, connect the ethernet cable (RJ45) from the PS3 to the Router,

Other option is plug ethernet cable into PS3 & other end into the Network card which will be built into the base unit, otherwise you can buy a ethernet card which should cost you about £10.
but you will need the PC switch on, whenever you want to use the PS3, as well as you will have to configure the network setting to get it working,,

Have a good new year

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.
