I tried to move my ps3 to a location where I would have a better net connection, but when I turned it on, everything was normal, but the browser (where you find video, network, games, etc.) was not showing up on screen. When I tried to turn it back to stand by mode, the green light flashed for nearly half an hour before I decided to use the switch in the back. I tried just rebooting it, but I had the same problem. I moved it back to its normal spot, but I had the almost the same exact problem, except now the icons for the browser appeared as well as the clock, and the loading symbol at the top right corner is there also. I can connect controllers, load and eject discs, and hold in the connect button so that "turn off the system" and "turn off controller" appear, but without the browser, I cannot watch movies, play games, or do anything else. If it matters, my ps3 is an 80 gig and I've had it for a year and a half with no problems whatsoever until now. Someone help!
I fixed this problem, but I'm still not entirely sure what went wrong. If I'm not mistaken, my wireless connection to the internet was causing it. I took my ps3 to my friend's house to see if he knew anything (who does not have wifi by the way) and we turned on the ps3 and it worked just fine. To be sure, I switched the internet connection settings to wired before I brought my playstation back home. Unfortunately, it only gave me the option to restore the hard disk. Somehow, this didn't delete all my game data, but I may have just gotten lucky. I can't gaurentee this will work for everyone, but I seem to have fixed the problem by terminating my ps3's wireless internet connection

Hi, If you are using a router, the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS3 from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation 3 then move it close to the PS3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS3 to your modem, press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS3 on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually) If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go. Thank you!
Log into your router, type routerlogin.net in your PCs web browser and configure a static IP for each of them. Also if your using wire-less its probably better to have at least one wired, both if you can. I've played my ps3 on a wireless-N router that was about three feet away and I lagging while playing killzone 2.
Are you using a router to connect your computers to the internet? Your router holds all the info for your LAN. You can get into the router software via your web browser, and find the ip assigned to the ps3. Next put that ip into the DMZ of the router. POst back if you have questions so I can walk you through it.
I have the same problem. My router is located about 1.5 feets from the PS3 and when I turn on the console my wireless network barely works. Something I did was change the frequency of the wireless. It was working in channel 9 and now it's on channel 3 with no problem.
First, wire your ps3 directly to the modem, cycle (reset) everything then try the normal connection procedures. You should only have the console, and the modem in the equation for testing purposes, this will let you narrow down the problem. You must turn everything off so that all of the information on both ends will auto refresh.
right fist of go on settings on the ps3 menu then go to network setting then click onsettings and connection status list take a note of all the ip addresses and servers then go to internet connection on the same menu and click on scan then click on your router name and then lick onenter ur wep key if u av 1m but if u dnt then cck on none then press right then go o custom on the address setting then manual on ip adress settings type in all ip address and servers and stuff then click on auto on the mtu dont use proxy server enable unpn click right then press x to save ur settings then test connection thn hopefully this works for u m8 cheers arsenal_07
