I wont to get on to the internet an i cant get connected What do i do ?


go to your system settings. scroll all the way to the bottom to network settings and adjust the settings to whichever you may be using wired or wireless. if wired connect an ethernet cord to your ps3 , choose wired and your ready to go. if you have a wireless modem you will need to input the sn and wep address manually or do a scan and double check your modem to make sure they match.

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

Need help getting online with 80gb ps3 using ethernet cable.


Try going to the settings, then network settings, and then go to internet connection test, and then push yes when prompted. If there is an error still then maybe your connected wrong or you need to call your internet provider and let them know what is going on. They will walk through it with you.

Cant find out how to get my ps3 with internet


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!!!!!

Can't go online with a ps3 by hooking it up to a laptop. I've hooked up an ether net cable to the back of a laptop that has a built in wi-fi connection but my ps3 will not hook up to the internet please...


ok, first, check your laptop to see if it is connected to the internet. If not, create a connection (go to control panel, then network connections, follow steps) then, go on your ps3 and go to settings, scroll down to network connections, then press x on internet connection settings, pess ok, choose easy, etc. as long as your pc has a connection to the internet, and you have high-speed internet (not dial-up), you will be able to go online.
