Use the PS3's Internet connection test under Systems Settings to determine if you've access to the web. If this test fails you will need to do the following: 1) Reset your DSL modem. 2) Once the cycle is completed, run the Internet Setup under Systems Settings within your PS3. 3) Follow the instructions you should be able to gain access to the web and online game play.

First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :- wii.php">http://fixhomenetwork.com/xbox-play-station-wii.php
if you have wireless you can hook it up that way. if you have wired or DSL network you can hook it up that way too. in addition you need a playstation network user account.
to hook up your ps3 to the net go to settings, network connection and choose custom network connection then it will show you wireless or wired then choose whatever you have. then just go through and dont change any settings until it runs the connection test then it should work
REMEMBER TO GET PLAYSTATION NETWORK ACCOUNT IN THE PLAYSTATION STORE AFTER YOU SET IT UP!!!!!
Internet gaming takes up massive amounts of bandwidth. A simple cell phone modem would certainly not be able to handle the intensity of playing a PS3 online. I would advise in you just getting a router, and since you didn't mention a true internet service, possibly even an ISP (Internet Service Provider) if you don't have one.
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!
Might I suggest checking out this site, http://www.ps3chat.com/playstation-3-online/1351-routers-ps3.html . I think that the Linksys router is having issues keeping the connection alive on your PS3. You should also consider setting a static IP.
Dial up is NOT recommended. I honestly do not think it would even work. DSL and broadband work great. If you get DSL or broadband you would need your original ethernet cord and hook up the PS3 from your router. If you go wireless then you would need a wireless router.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
1. First of all, connect your routers Internet/WAN port to your cable/DSL modem. 2. Configure your router with the settings your Internet Service Provider gave you. The router usually needs to be configured via either a install disc or it's internal webpage. Look up it's default IP and type it into your browser after: http://
(If you don't know them, call their tech. support).
3. Make sure the internet connection works.
4. Look up the settings for a DHCP server and make sure it's on. This will give all the devices connected to the router an IP address within the range or scope you set in there.
5. Connect your PS3 to one of the other ports of the router.
6. Go to your PS3's network settings, make a new connection and set everything to Automatic. Your PS3 will "ask" your router for it's settings.
7. Run a connection test.
8. If test succeeded you should be on your way.
P.S. If you need help configuring your router I will need more information about it. It's brand, it's type etc.
I once had the same problem. What i did is that i booted the modem and the Ps3 (turned both off) and then turned them on. Then i went to the internet settings on the Ps3 and tried the internet connection check and it worked! I hope you have some help of this.
