My ps3 keeps saying ethernet cable not connected I think I tried everything I got a new cable didn't work.I need help.

Hello there!

There could be problems with your LAN input on ps3 ,you should check that with service. Also check settings under ps3 options file, maybe you need to enable(turn on) that port of lan in order to make it work.

I have a 120 gb silm line ps3 console but a dont no how to hook it up to the internet

If you have a router in place connect the ps3 to it via ethernet cable. If the router is wireless with a WEP or WPA encryption code access the routers login page and get this code. Once you have the cable connected or the code turn on the ps3.
1:>On the ps3 dashboard go to (settings) then scroll down to and select (internet connection) select enable.
2:>Then go back to (settings), then scroll down to the bottom and select (network settings).
3:>Select (internet connection settings). This will bring up your internet setup page.
4:>Now select (easy) method.
5:>Choose wether wired or wireless. If wired skip to 8.
6:>Wireless will prompt you to select a wireless router (make sure you select your router) cause you may find others besides yours.
7:>After your router is selected it will prompt you to select either WEP or WPA select the one that the router uses and then enter the code.
8:>This will bring up your settings list most everything will be labled automatic. Press enter (X).
9:>Then select (test connection)
10:>After it is done back out.
11:>Now use your computer to go to and make yourself a PSN account with a username and password. After this is done.
12:>On the ps3 dashboard goto playstation network and select sign in, then enter your new PSN account name and password.
If you need anymore info do not hesitate to ask.

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

I just bought the playstation 3 and hooked it up. All i get is a red screen saying there's an error. What can I do???

Make sure all of the wires are connected properly. If everything is hooked up correctly, call Playstation's support number and get them to troubleshoot with you on the phone. Otherwise, you may have to go exchange it for another one because that one is defective.

Hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

Ip address failed

In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.

Hope this help!

Hi...I was having hi speed internet problems earlier and called them. they fixed that problem. however they seemed to have thrown off the playstation 3 connection and it says it's missing an ethernet...

Try tunring everything off and unplugging it all. Make perfectly sure that every thing is re-plugged in at the correct port and securely. Theh turn everything on in the corret order.
