I believe what you mean is your connection to your ps3 not on your tv

actually i think ps3 has a built in wireless adapter unlike xbox360

things to remember:

-make sure that you use compatible routers

-distance of wireless router from ps3 may affect the signal of internet

-actually, some devices like microwave or chordless phone may also interfere with youre connection

-if you are using a direct modem connection, you may need to call your isp to check if the firmware of your modem is up to date

-there is more to life than games so try to do some sports if you are not able to connect ^_^


hope it helps

I just bought a Sony Bravia TV and am trying to connect it to the internet via my WPN824v2 LAN - it's not working and the LAN lights never light up on my router. Wireless connections are fine - even new...


I spent the last day trying to solve this, what worked was:

Home
Settings
Network
Refresh Internet Content
Wait (a while) until it Authenticates

Normal Internet service resumed :-)

How do i use my wireless internet card on my ps3 new version? do i need a usb cord?


Just configure the wireless setting in the PS3 with the wireless router's settings Eg. the wireless router's SSID and encryption etc.
If you don't remember the wireless router's settings then open IE browser and enter the router's IP configuration address and go to the wireless settings.
Use these settings and go into the PS3 wireless configuration and enter the router's wireless settings.
The PS3 will now connect to the wireless router.

Can't connect my PS3 to a Linksys Wireless-G BB router


What type of encryption are you using for your router. I am hooking up my son's PS3 to the wireless. I'm also a computer, network, and server technician. I may be able to help.

Ps3 keeps cutting out wireless internet


You may have an IP conflict. Renew the IP on both the Sonys
At a command prompt,
ipconfig /release
it will come back with all zeros

ipconfig /renew
It should pick up a new IP address.


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the router may cause conflict with other routers within your network range. Recommend changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Connection for Ps3 thru netgear router


Make sure that you NAT is open to your PS3. To open it, you need to forward some ports. Call up PS3 and ask them what ports are needed to be forwarded. Then, go and do the adjustments to your router.

No internet connection on web browser


The problem may be in the router itself, prehaps a faulty product. But I am more inclined to think it is the outdated copy of windows 2000 which you use. In my view 2000 was second to Windows ME in terms of faults, errors, recoginizing hardware, and what have you. I would take the router back to walmart and test with a new one, but if that does not help, then it may be time for you to upgrade. Have you tried getting the ps3 online even without the computer having an active connection? Give that a shot and if for some reason the ps3 grabs the signal then it is time to give in for sure man. And watch the router when you try to connect the ps3 to see if it even attempts to grab the wireless connection, the wireless light will start blinking rapidly if it does.
