If it sees your connection then you need set it up as per connection type, i.e. - wep. Then if you have a secure connection you need to enter the password. All Gateways and wireless hubs are a bit different so you need to get info specific to yours from the manufacturer, all of them will have a support section on there website to tell you how to do it. Good luck!!!

How to connect your PS3 to the internet


In this guide I will go over the steps you need to take in order to connect your Ps3 to the internet either wired or wireless.

Wireless Connection
-Your home router should be configured for wireless and you should know your wireless routers security information. Make sure an Ethernet cable is not connected to the PS3.
-Turn on your console and select Network Settings under the Settings option in the main menu.
-Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and then select Yes when prompted.
-For the installation type select "Easy"
-Select "Wireless" when prompted for your connection type.
-Select "Scan". Your system will scan and show all available wireless access points within range.
-Select your home access point from the list.
-Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings
Make sure to select Test Connection to make sure the connection is working properly.

Wired Connection

You will have the same steps as a wireless connection, except once you select "Easy", you will be prompted for your wired connection settings. Normally, in a home environment, you are using DCHP and the IP address as well as DNS information is all obtained automatically from your router.

Be sure to select Test Connection afterwards

Ok. You should now be connected to the internet. Enjoy!

    Cant get online


    Before you can go online on the PS3, there is need for you to have either a wireless lan network or a wired network with an ethernet cable.
    If you are using a wireless network, here is how you go about it
    1. Make sure your wireless Internet connection is active and at full strength. Unplug the PS3's Ethernet cable if it is plugged into the system.
    2. Turn on the Playstation 3 game console and select "Network Settings" under the "Settings" option in the main menu.
    3. Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and select "Yes" when the system displays a new screen saying you will be disconnected from the Internet.
    4. Select "Easy" on the next screen that asks what type of installation you want to use.
    5. Select "Wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.
    6. Select "Scan" on the next screen.The system will search for all available Internet connections in the area.
    7. Select your home Internet connection when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options. Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings.
    8. Test the connection by selecting the "Test Connection" option. If the connection has been made, your network information will appear on the screen.
    If you are using a wired connection. just go over the same steps but select the wired connection instead of the wireless connection.
    Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information.

    Always lose connection while playing playstation 3 online. Sometimes my computer displays a launchmodem error when trying to get on the internet. If I unplug the modem and router, it works again.


    Please give some information on your router and modem brand/model, also what type of connection do you have, cable, dsl, etc. Go to speedtest.net and post your upload and download speeds as well.

    Are you connecting to your play station wirelessly or through network cable directly to the back of the PS3?

    Depending on your speeds your connection could be overloaded by the high demand the PS puts on your internet connection, or if you are wireless you could be in far range from where the router is located. Hope this helps. The extra information might help.

    That won't work because your old sbc wireless router 2wire gateway is also a modem. You need a plain router for Time Warner. Try Linksys router.

I was able to connect fine for a month before the 1.50 update and then things got really wierd. I have gone through entire days unable to connect to the network and entire days able to connect. Meanwhile I had full use of the PS3 internet browser and no other computer or internet issues. I can currently confirm that if I return my PS3 internet settings the original "automatic" settings I will not be able to connect, with these DNS settings in the PS3 I have no problems. I have cable internet access through Adelphia with a Linksys WRT54GS router communicating wirelessly with my PS3... GOOD LUCK!
    The information I used to create this fix contained a link that has provided us with router specific DNS information to be used if the numbers provided do not work. http://www.opendns.com/start/at_home.php
    Now, a day later, I am able to connect with the original automatic settings for everything including DNS. I must also point out that the network performance is much faster using the automatic settings and recommend using alternate DNS settings only when neccessary.


    All I can say for those still having problems is reboot EVERYTHING. Your router, modem, PS3 and any other device that may be connected to your network.

    If you still have problems try connecting the ps3 directly to your modem not through the router...

    How to wire a ps3


    Hey allisc,

    In order to connect your PS3 to the internet, you will need one of two things: a hard-wired connection, or a wireless residential gateway. Please keep in mind that your options may be limited by the PS3 model that you own, and that a wireless connection is not possible with some models.

    The most straight-forward type of connection you can make is a hard-wired connection - simply use an Ethernet cable to connect your PS3 directly to your residential gateway. By establishing a direct connection, the PS3 should not need any additional information in order to access the internet. The trade-off for the simplicity of a hard-wired connection is that the number of places you can physically place the PS3 itself are limited by the length of Ethernet cable used.

    Should you wish to use a wireless connection instead, you will need to own a 40GB, 60GB or 80GB PS3 and a wireless residential gateway. The 20GB model unfortunately does not support wireless capabilities at this time. Please keep in mind that connecting wirelessly can often prove to be more complex than using a direct connection, as you not only need the name of your router, but information on any established security settings as well.

    The most common security settings that may be in place are Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys and Media Access Control (MAC) filters. MAC filters are essentially a series of "blacklists" and "whitelists" that restrict network access based on hardware configuration. WPA keys however, are "passwords" that allow your computer or video game console to decipher a code used by residential gateways which prevent unauthorized users from using your personal internet connection.

    Both forms of security may typically be set and changed by accessing the gateway directly through its default website. This default website can vary depending on the brand of the device, but many companies may use one of the two default addresses I've provided below:

    192.168.0.1
    or
    192.168.1.1

    Please keep in mind that in order to access the gateway's control panel you will need to have both the admin user name and password!

    Once you have gotten access to your residential gateway's control panel, you should then be able to add the MAC address of your PS3 to the gateway’s MAC filters, as well as copy down any WPA key used by the network so that you may later enter it into your PS3's memory.

    If you are still not sure how to proceed or do not feel comfortable doing any of this, I would strongly suggest contacting either your internet service provider (ISP) or a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Sincerely,
    Aaron
