Cant get internet connestion

Are you hard wiring it? if so you may need to reboot your modem then start the ps3 back up. Don't unplug from the computer and connect it directly to your PS3 because the modem still has the computer's ip address and it won't recognize the PS3 until you reboot it. If it's a wireless connection, check to see that when you scan for wireless connection that the green wireless LED is blinking, meaning it's searching for a signal. If it's blinking, then try resetting the modem and the wireless router as well and give it another try. If the green light does not blink, then there might be a harware issue with your PS3. Good luck

  • Select "Network Settings" under "Settings" in the home menu, press the x_button.jpg button.
  1. Select "Internet Connection Settings", press the x_button.jpg button.
  2. You will be popped with a message stating the Internet connection will be terminated, select Yes, press the x_button.jpg button.
  3. Select "Wired Connection", press the x_button.jpg button.
  4. Select Easy or Custom and adjust the settings.
    • If you select Easy, then the basic settings are automatically set.
    • If you select Custom, then you need to enter the settings. Refer the settings supplied by your Internet service provider.

    • Wireless Connectivity:

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?

Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

I cant register my ps3 to the playstation network

get your own internet connection, stop stealing your neighbors :)

if you are on your own connection, the check your connection settings, or the settings on your router. try connecting directly to your modem. it's nothing wrong with your ps3, just everything to do with your own network equipment.
