Im guessing you have done this already, but reset your router and modem and switch off your ps3 then boot everything up again and see if that works. if not then try connecting your ps3 directly to your modem (again switch it all off unplug ethernet cables wire it to ps3 and switch it all on again) try it a couple of times, if this works then you have a problem with you router and probably need to do port forwarding or contact sky

My ps3 doesn't get the wireless connection because it ask me to press the aoss button and i don't know where is it can you help me please.

The AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) buttion is actually located on your wireless router. It is part of the Buffalo Technology system and allows secure wireless connections to ge setup with the touch of one button. Most wireless routers will have this type of button on the front panel. They are labeled differently by each company, but they will all function the same. This gives you the choice of pushing one button rather than having to manually enter the setup information. Check your manual for something similar to One Touch Setup.

My playstation wont allow me to set up a wireless connection after an update

As long as your PS3 is equipped with the wireless feature the following instruction manual from Sony should help.

Let me know if you have any other problems.

I am trying to setup a wireless connection from playstation 3 to my PC. I have netcomm 3G wireless router. When I access the playstation 3 menu to change to wireless connection, it scans and reads the...

does it say the ssid of the netcomm if so just hit start start and accept the ssid then just use all the defaults to connect.

if the wireless is encrypted it may be asking for a network key and you have to find that. it would have been the wireless passcode that you set when setting up the router if it has one. by default there is not one.

Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work

if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

My ps3 wont connect to play online

You need to setup your connection.

Are you using a wired or wireless connection?

Connection interuptted wen playing online!

I am guessing the PS3 is hooked up through a router, either wired or wirelessly. You need to browse the router setup for the IP address of the PS3, then put the IP of the PS3 into the DMZ, also in the router setup. This should clear up any connection problems

My sony PS3 wont connect to the net , (error 80710723 ) what does it mean ?

I believe you can connect it directly (via CAT 5 cable with a RJ45 connector from a router), or via WiFi, if you have wireless internet available where you are trying to connect.
FYI the CAT 5/RJ45 connector looks like a male phone connector, just a little wider (there should be a female RJ45 on your PS3 console). Also to connect to a wireless router, you should find instructions in your PS3 manual. If you need better information, please provide us with more details.
I hope this helps, and Good Luck.
